Man, I would love to get one of those email. I could spend half a day just making the guys email account useless.
 
2003-12-29 03:33:42 PM  
It's hard to decide if the biggest moron is the blackmailer or the blackmailee.
 
2003-12-29 03:52:15 PM  
Seize the accounts. If I got one of those emails, I'd send them back a picture of the Olsen twins with a donkey.

My salvation!!!

Gonna print this off and show the boss if he ever looks at my device.
 
2003-12-29 04:41:57 PM  
These blackmailers sound like they need Mormon missionaries sent to their door. That'll save 'em.
 
2003-12-29 05:46:34 PM  
Finally, someone else to blame!
 
2003-12-29 05:49:08 PM  
umm i read about this on another forum and the general consensus was "Idiot Tax"
 
2003-12-29 05:49:33 PM  
farkem .. my boss and I would get a kick out of some fresh crop...
 
2003-12-29 05:49:55 PM  
What kind of porn?
 
2003-12-29 05:50:15 PM  
So, basically, now there's a way to get porn on your
computer by NOT paying for it?

Ingenius!
 
2003-12-29 05:51:10 PM  
As long as they don't upload guys or children, let'em rip!

What a stupid way to blackmail.

Don't these people have IT departments?

Anyway, I don't even read spam more than a fraction of a second these days. They'd lose my attention at "You better..."
 
2003-12-29 05:52:25 PM  
Hey, if they did this to my home computer, I'd never have to surf to my favorite free pron sites again ...
 
2003-12-29 05:53:25 PM  
I won't be able to send them the money until I get the guys in Nigeria paid off.
 
2003-12-29 05:54:04 PM  
Dear Cyber Blackmailer,

Please put the images in C:/Program Files/Don't Look In Here/Not Porn/. Also, if you can, please try to get me anything in the midget/scat milieu. Thank you.
 
2003-12-29 05:54:05 PM  
Right up front I refuse to pay!
 
2003-12-29 05:54:05 PM  
I think ChadManMn pretty much summed it up.
 
2003-12-29 05:54:26 PM  
Blackmailers try to blackmail Farkers but fail miserably when they discover Farkers have neither money nor the desire to NOT get porn.

Very funny!
(You Are kidding, right?)
 
2003-12-29 05:55:52 PM  
In other news, the word "gullible" STILL has no entry at dictionary.com.
 
2003-12-29 05:56:37 PM  
Porn on my computer ....BRING IT ON!!!

bURAAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!
 
2003-12-29 05:56:40 PM  
Now Pete Townsend will have a ready-made defense next time pix of little boys in underwear show up on his laptop.

And on his computer.
 
2003-12-29 05:56:56 PM  
Is this porn from Nigeria?
 
2003-12-29 05:57:44 PM  
But I work at a porn company...what does this mean to me? :)
 
2003-12-29 05:58:29 PM  
yeah, what's the catch?
 
2003-12-29 05:58:44 PM  
Nigerian porn? Hell National Geographic thought of that in 1920!
 
2003-12-29 05:58:52 PM  
Nigerian corn?
 
2003-12-29 05:59:27 PM  
wheels_999

if it was, we could get the blackmailers executed.

/most of Nigeria = Islamic Law now im sure.
 
2003-12-29 05:59:36 PM  
i bet you its not gonna be cool porn though...its gonna be like transvestites with loose skinned old women and mountain goats
 
2003-12-29 06:00:13 PM  
Mmmmm...mountain goats.
 
2003-12-29 06:00:44 PM  
I don't know about the Nigerians, but I understand Liberians are also presenting some interesting investment opportunities ... not sure about pron.

/waits for 10% of $250,000,000
 
2003-12-29 06:00:51 PM  
There's another extortion gang that threatens to send you copies of the "River City Ransom" Nintendo ROM and then threatens to call Nintendo of America attorneys on you :(
 
2003-12-29 06:00:54 PM  
Thats why you block the sender when they send you an email treatening to porn up your workbox.
 
2003-12-29 06:01:38 PM  
There's no free porn.
 
2003-12-29 06:02:54 PM  
Slacquer:
As I read your post my office Muzak was playing Townshend's "Let My Love Open the Door".
 
2003-12-29 06:04:23 PM  
This reminds me of cyber 'mafias' threatening to kill online characters(sims onlines or sometihng liek that)unless people payed them real life money. Its an actual buisness

"I wholeheartetly belief Henry could be Held up through the mail" Anyone remeber that? Its from MASH(hawkeye said it, if you need the apropriate voice) Then it was a joke. Now its fact

Whats next, threating to fax child porn to idiots unless they pay? Phoning them up and saying they will order large amounts of chinese food and pizza to be delivered to their house unless they pay?
 
2003-12-29 06:05:18 PM  
slobarnuts Thats why you block the sender when they send you an email treatening to porn up your workbox.

But then you'll miss all the great porn! Jesus man, try to keep up!
 
2003-12-29 06:05:24 PM  

YES! Reasonable Doubt!

(That is to say, if I had anything like that to worry about, ever. Or anything.)

 
2003-12-29 06:06:06 PM  
lol theyre not gonna put "OPEN SO WE CAN EFF YOU OVER BY PUTTING PORN ON YOUR COMPUTER" in the subject box...it will be random, some thing like "hey its me!" or "i had fun the other night"
 
2003-12-29 06:08:40 PM  
Good thing I don't work.
 
2003-12-29 06:08:57 PM  
Heck, it might make for some good photoshop fodder!
 
2003-12-29 06:10:22 PM  
So let me get this straight. You're gonna give me porn if I DON'T pay? That's a new twist, I'll take it!

Seriously, who would ever fall for this? The first thing I would do is take the incrimminating e-mail to my boss, and I'm off the hook for any porn on the computer.
 
2003-12-29 06:10:47 PM  
Dear Blackmailer,

As you may have noticed, I missed the last payment. Per the terms of our agreement, you should now be filling my computer with nasty explicit pornography. If you do not do it soon, I may begin to doubt the seriousness of the situation. Several gig of Bukakke movies should teach me quite a lesson! I will know you are not to be trifled with. Imagine the horror if I were to turn on my computer to discover twins doing anal for the first time. Young, red headed twins would be especially mortifying. You need to put me in my place! Show me who's in charge!

You do start as soon as the first payment is missed, right?

I know there are some really stupid users, but this story sure seems like it's made up.

2003-12-29 05:52:23 PM Seb
Don't these people have IT departments?
