Skype scambaiting: Fredrickella

One of the stranger quirks of Skype is that, by default, strangers can pop up a chat window and invade your life. The three most common kinds are:

  • Young ladies seeking marriage/visas/apparently affluent men
  • The most boring people on the planet

and, my favourite:

These last scumbags provide no end of sport, and every second they are fielding my utterly inane bullshit is a second they aren’t spending convincing little old ladies to part with their savings.

I thought I’d share one from the weekend with you. If you enjoy it, please let me know in the comments and I’ll post the funnier ones on the blog from time to time.

    Oh, I hurt myself laughing, trying to hold it in because my wife is sleeping next to me.

    That is just brilliant HappySinger (which I just mistyped on my iPhone as HappyDinger which sent me back into fits of laughter).

    Thanks for the guidelines you have provided here. Something important I would like to express is that computer system memory specifications generally go up along with other advances in the technology. For instance, as soon as new generations of cpus are brought to the market, there’s usually a corresponding increase in the scale demands of both pc memory in addition to hard drive room. This is because the software operated by simply these cpus will inevitably increase in power to make new know-how.
