I have written about a scammer or scammers can be in this community, recently. Watch out people. I also felt a scammer reached me thru airbnb app as if he would be my prospective guest. but since the scammer I got known here, I noticed it quick and blocked him.

This should, in some small way, help the OP get over the disappointment of not winning last Friday’s Mega-Millions. One door closes but another opens.

I'm so relieved that after all this time these scourge-of-the-earth types have been rounded up and "eradicated". Still, one does hope they got a fair trial first, I assume that's still the procedure, even for scammers, before the eradication took place.

What a let down
Going by the title only, I thought they had actually executed some of them.

Wait. This has to be a scam. A real scammer would request your social security number.

I would ask Sr. Draghi if he can get you compensation for being harassed by the spammers. At the very least the spammers owe you a pygmy goat.

As you can see from below, they can provide you with milk which you can turn into cheese. They are also good at clearing invasive species off of land. Often you can rent them out for this purpose. Finally, you can eat them. But, make sure you have good breeding stock before eating the goat(s). Otherwise, you fun and exciting goat experience will end sooner than expected. And then the spammers will have the last laugh.

African Pygmy Goat Characteristics & Uses Info

Profitable Goat Farming Business Guide / By Staff

Pygmy goats are considered as the best miniature dairy goat breed. African pygmy goat is a native goat breed of West Africa. They were originated from the Cameroon Valley of West Africa. They were shipped to the USA during the late 50s.
Like the small sized pygmy goats, African pygmy goats are also good milkers. They also produce huge amount of milk, compared to their body size. Nowadays most of the farmers keep these goat breed mainly for their highly milk production capability.
One doe can produce about 4 lbs of milk daily, during their lactation period. They are also good for meat production.
And some people also raise them for meat production purpose. Some people also raise these African pygmy goat as pets.
They are well behaved and also very friendly with humans. Through proper care and management, they can produce their maximum.

One of my hobbies is "scambaiting," engaging with the scammers through a series of fake accounts to frustrate, anger, and humiliate them and more importantly, to waste their time. There is a whole community out there that does this. I currently have 6 different lads thinking a money transfer is on the way. Of course most of these lads claim to be women in love with me.

I have been doing this for something like 20-25 years. Back in the day it took fake Western Union receipts to get them excited but now they all want cashapp. I'm old school and only do (fake) wire transfers that, for some reasons, always get delayed. With wire transfers we also get real bank info that we can use to report them to the bank and get the account shut down.

This weekend I have a girl visiting me in Hawaii from Kentucky and I am also going to visit another sweetie in Ghana when I am in Nigeria on business.

Don't hate me.

PS. I take very strong technical precautions and have numerous technology tools I have developed over 20 years to protect myself. I do not suggest anyone do this without good IT knowledge!
