this is a real scam. I've actually received an email like the first one. It was promptly blocked with my hotmail filter.

Oh, it's definitely a real scam! The way this was dealt with was just pretty funny, I think it actually happened.


This is where I found the link originally. Thanks goes to Jin for turning me onto Ars, it's a really cool site.

Hello and welcome to ICQ! :)

The same guys who did the "All Your Base" flash music vid did one based on the Pusher Robot ICQ prank, called, appropriately enough...

The Terrible Secret Of Space...

Of course, none of this has ANYTHING to do with LW, but what the heck, spread the geek joy. :)

heheh... I just got an e-mail for one of these (first time in months). I was even asked to "Endeavour to read carefully". I'm almost tempted to pull a Lowtax on the guy...

hmmm....
