    Email scam

    Has anyone else gotten an email from Bill Gebhardt? The poor guy's stuck in Istanbul Turkey. He's been robbed and is being held hostage by the hotel he's staying in. The thieves have taken everything but his passport. I know of one guy in Australia that got the same email.

    I got the same Email "IT IS A SCAM" but it is amazing how many people believe this crap. If it is sent to a 1000 and 1 person responds, who is the dummy? the $100,000.00 a year wrestler, or the guy that pays $10.00 to see him.

    I received a similar email months back claiming to be Joel Kendrick, in a similar bind. He was robbed, no phone or contact information but somehow he had memorised email addresses!

    People are not as bad as they used to be, but it still amazes me how little analysis people do when they look at something they receive on the internet whether that is an email or website. A great example of that is the scam that was going around about if you forwarded this email to microsoft they would send you $100. I was told by about 6 people that I was stupid to not take advantage of that great opportunity. I think people would have been far less susceptible to that type of campaign if it came through snail mail. This works great for the scammers because they can send out millions of emails without very little cost and have a greater success rate than if they put stamps on them and mailed them.

    At least all of the shooters connected on the web are honest and would never stretch the truth. No one would exaggerate their prowess with a gun so when they say their AK can shoot a one inch group at 1,000 yards they are telling the truth and we should just be happy they never show up to a match to show the rest of the world how it is done.

    Tommy mckee was stuck in cuba a few years ago. I asked him what billys dogs name was and id send him $10k. I cant believe he didnt need that money. Im guessing he must still be there because i havent seen him in 15yrs?
