Awww…isn’t that thoughtful of ol’ Sam here? Of course, this is just another scam in a looooooong line of scams, and you know what that means, right?
It’s time for “Fun With Scammers!”
Of course I checked out their Facebook page mentioned in the e-mail. They don’t have one.
Shocking, I know.
Then, it was time to craft a reply:
I am so deeply touched and honored by your gratitude for my devotion to my pet rock.
Coincidentally, rock’s name is “Rock”. I toyed with using the name “Boulder” or “Granite”, you know something to boost his ego, but since he didn’t seem to have a preference I selected “Rock”, because I secretly suspect he’s a big Rock Hudson fan.
Whenever a movie starring Rock Hudson comes on the television, Rock sits very still the whole time. I’d say that’s a pretty good indication he’s a fan, wouldn’t you?
Rock is also the best listener I’ve ever met. I can talk to him for hours, and I know he will listen intently, never interrupt me, and always be a solid buddy I can truly lean on.
I have several pictures of Rock, but if I send you one I know I’ll want to send them all, and you’re probably a very busy man who doesn’t have time to look at pictures of pet rocks all day.
If you do want a picture, though, just let me know.
There is only one thing about Rock that is slightly disturbing, and really I think it’s the reason most people don’t go for the pet rock thing. He’s a cannibal.
He eats pebbles, there I said it. He’s also been known to eat gravel, and when I can’t afford anything else he eats sand. He loves to nibble on sand, and I often give it to him as a treat when money is plentiful and the gravel and pebbles flow like wine..really clunky wine, but you get the idea.
Your $1,000 will go towards purchasing the finest river rock pebbles money can buy. Rock really loves the smooth ones that are sold for decorative purposes.
One more thing Rock loves is taking trips. He sits on the dashboard of my car and never moves. He’s truly an excellent traveler, so I think I may use some of the money to treat him to a long-awaited vacation on the beaches of Florida. There, he can graze on the sand and soak up the ocean…literally.
I cannot tell you how much this gift means to me and when I told Rock I believe he vibrated with excitement!
Or maybe we hit a pothole – we were in the car at the time – either way, I could tell how very excited he was.
Below is all my contact information, please forward my money order as soon as possible. Now that I’ve told Rock about this honor, I don’t want to disappoint him.

p.s. I tried to ‘like’ your Facebook page, but was unable to locate. I think Rock’s been playing on my computer while I’m at work – he’s clever like that – and may have done something to the Facebook-thingy. Whatever, I’ll figure it out, but you may thank me on your blog publicly so long as you mention Rock, too.
p.p.s. Are you sure you don’t want a picture of Rock for your blog?
