    How Scammers Swindle Seniors
    January 15, 2014 ~ When the FINRA Investor Education Foundation conducted a survey on Americans' exposure to financial scams in 2012, the results were disheartening: "More than 8 in 10 respondents were solicited to participate in a potentially fraudulent offer. And 11 percent of all respondents lost a significant amount of money after engaging with an offer."

    Maybe if you keep them busy, they won't bother me with one more email.

    I believe it is a business for them.

    Responding means more email for you and they could change their game plan and target you in the future.

    Sometimes people try to figure out what they can get away with and you are playing with them which is dangerous.
