Scum of the earth…

IMG_8582.JPG
It is a sad fact of today’s world that we need to be wary and not take things at face value. Our inboxes are filled with spam emails from apparent will executors of foreign kings, telling us we are related to said royalty and they wish to bestow millions on us. Do people actually fall for these scams? Apparently and sadly they do. People are getting more creative and sophisticated in their fraud schemes and prey on the less fortunate and needy amongst us. How often we hear tales of online romances where the ‘victim’ sends good money after bad, believing their love will use it to join them. I’m sure deep down these people know the sad harsh truth, but a desperate longing to be loved fuels their actions. Fraudsters such as these are the scum of the earth, with no pity for the heartbroken humans they leave in their wake. All they want is easy money, and they will use whatever means they can to get it. I was astounded to see a sign on the gift card display in the supermarket recently, stating that there was a phone scam telling people they owed the tax department money, which could be paid off by sending gift cards. Really? But again, when I stop to think, there are many foreigners amongst us who don’t have a complete grasp of our language, or how things work and a number of elderly who are also easily taken in. Fraud is the daughter of greed and she will do anything to feather her nest. I personally would rather be broke than succeed by fraud…

“All religion, my friend, is simply evolved out of fraud, fear, greed, imagination and poetry.”
Edgar Allen Poe
