Latest Scam: Pay Us For Using @
from the oh,-right,-let-me-get-my-checkbook... dept
TheRegister has picked up one of the more amusing scam emails apparently making the rounds. It’s not entirely clear how much they’re actually asking for (the quoted email shows a few different amounts), but those behind the scam are suggesting that they’ve copyrighted the “@” symbol and users need to pay (somewhere around $10 to $20) for an unlimited one-year license. The thing is… some people might actually fall for something like this.

And if you are stupid enough to fail, then you should be banned from future use of the internet.
This makes me sad :-(
and to express my sadness I used a Frownie ™ which is protected by a trademark
I did go to the online store to aquire a license for use in this posting
I have just copyrighted the copyright symbol! I demand royalties of $1 for each use on each copy of all material that uses my symbol. If you don’t pay up immediately I will sue!
