These continue to arrive in my mailbox. If you are a teacher of some sort they may arrive in yours as well. They are scams. Don’t bother responding — you only let them know they’ve reached a legit email address when you do so. Don’t fall for them — you’ll lose money if you do. Yes, people have fallen for them. Someone told me she lost a couple hundred dollars. I’m guessing some have lost more.

How does it work? “Mrs. Debbie Mann” (hah!) sends you a check for much more than you asked. She then asks you to send the overage back to her. Only later do you find out the check she sent was bogus.

I’m just ever-so-popular.

Those of you who don’t blog miss out on some things that might, quite literally, make you LOL. Or at least shake your head. Or something.
