When I arrived at the shop this morning, my morning manager (Pat) told me we had a request for a relay call. She had tried to explain to the operator that she could not accept the call until I came in, but the voice kept talking. So she hung up. Then I open my emails to discover one from Mike Williams.
Word-for-word, the same email as last June. They must have a really big scam operation if they do not remember who they have tried to scam in the past.
The "from" email is different, so beware:

I am going to reply that I am sorry his first marriage didn't work out, but really it is in bad taste to have the same wedding cake twice.
Ok, he responded with an innocent "What do you suggest?" I replied "Try this." with a link to the blog. Have not heard from him since.
