There is a phone bank place in Riverbank near here where operators take calls to and from deaf people and they type in what the caller says to them, or transversely say to the hearing person what the deaf person has typed. Well criminals use the service as it is totally confidential and the operators are bound to type or say exactly what was said to them. Plus it's free. You don't have to prove that you're deaf or anything so African scammers have been using it as a free telemarketing window into the US. Most of the operators are college students as they need operators around the clock and the students can usually work it in around their school schedule. Well they finally blocked overseas calls and the call volume dropped immediately and they began laying off the workers that very afternoon. So there should be less African scam telephone calls than there was.
PS: Now they are talking about moving the whole operation to the Philippines.

There was a story on Dateline the other night about all the Americans who got "scammed" by stuff like this.

Financial version of natural selection IMHO
And also very similar to people who took out zero equity home mortgages or didn't pay attention to what an adjustable rate mortgage really means.

The thing that amazes me is when people that are apparantely educated and intelligent-professional people fall for this crap. If you can't smell the stink from a mile away something is wrong with you!!

Frans, Your on. I'll make the pick-up on my own schedule. Of course I might keep all of it 'cause you and Guido and Tiny are all such loveable harmless little fuzzballs and would never harm me.
