    "Google like a motherfucker" – isn't that a song?

    Oooooooooo! THAT's gonna leave a mark!

  4. Ken says:

    The scammers, and their lawyer, are making repeated panicky visits to my firm's web site. Watching on Woopra. I am singing a little tune.

  5. Scott Jacobs says:

    How much for you to show the rest of the e-mail (sans identifying info for both them and your firm)?

    And how much to see their reply e-mail?

  6. Scott Jacobs says:

    I don’t know what kind of useful advice that former federal prosecutors and a ———— could offer to a company engaged in what skeptical or judgmental people might term a large-scale mail fraud scheme, but I’m sure we’ll think of something. Perhaps we could invite some friends of ours as well. We have many friends from our former jobs

    I find the veiled threat of calling the feds to be extra awesome.

    Ken, can I come work for you, just so I can bask daily in your presence?

    i just threw my fake invoice notice away. I recently paid to self host my family blog and received a "bill". Wish I had sent them a letter like that.

  8. Ken says:

    Bold little cocksucker. He just called me directly, playing the oh-gee-can-you-explain-what-I-did-wrong. Told him to tell it to the FBI.

  9. Ken says:

    I found a place on the internet where someone else uploaded the invoice. here.

    The scammer on the phone was saying that it's not fraudulent because of that disclaimer. When I was a fed I put people in jail for trying similar gambits.

    "Does Marsellus Wallace look like a bitch?"

  11. SPQR says:

    Ken, these people do need to be prosecuted. The local community college where I sometimes teach was flooded with similar scam invoices, and there is an estiimate that the scammers got six figures of state money before the moronic auditors caught on.

  12. SPQR says:

    Oh, and Ken, if their little scummy lawyer tries to contact you, dump an attorney regulation complaint on him.

    We can't threaten criminal or administration action to obtain an advantage in a civil matter, so my rule of thumb is to file the complaint first …

  13. Doug says:

    the notice I recieved was similar, but way from New York. It had similar wording.

  14. Ken says:

    SPQR, since I am not pursuing a civil matter against then, I can threaten whatever I want.

    I've found scammer's personal and entity bankruptcy cases, and all the adversary actions filed against them.

  15. Ken says:

    Decided to make the scammer a project and object lesson in use of online resources. Digging into his life.

    Have I ever told you you're my hero?

    Goddamn this is awesome.
