we are scammed! everywhere!

note: if you are bored seeing this long article & just want to see some weird & funny pictures, go directly to them; to those willing to read it, big respect & thanks in advance! :)

first what's scam?

one of meanings:
1. a confidence game or other fraudulent scheme, esp. for making a quick profit; swindle.
–verb (used with object)
2. to cheat or defraud with a scam.

I've been surfing the internet for a while now doing various things, & I have the strange feeling that 90% of other surfers are scammers; scammers are everywhere, sending emails, posting in forums, running blogs & even owning websites, sometimes big & expensive websites.

but what about off-line scam? I guess real life scammers are as numerous as internet scammers, after all, scammers on the internet are also real people with real lives too, but maybe they have more freedom on the web, as they can act anonymously from anywhere & reach anyone, anywhere; do their stuff and disappear then reappear under a new identity & so on ...

but I can prove though real life scammers actually exist! they sell you plain bread with the price of delicious sandwiches!


now, are all scammers humans? in fact no! at least on-line, it's proved there are "scammers-bots", some of those steal your passwords & some even your money; it's true they are commended by humans, but still they are (ro)bots.

again, do inhuman scammers exist in real life? not sure, but at least I'm sure inhuman scam exits! sometimes, you are presented to a nice big watermelon, but once opened, there's not much to eat!

That sandwich is 10NT. 30NT is about a dollar. All things considered, you get quite a lot for the price.
