For the last several days, I’ve had about 20-30 of these idiotic e-mails every day. Many are replies from various cancer hospitals and clinics, and many are from individuals. All are requesting whatever brainless moron is sending these out to STOP. I add my voice to the chorus.
I am sorry Nucha has lung cancer. I am also sorry my father-in-law passed away from cancer last January. I am also sorry that both my father and my mother-in-law have been diagnosed with lung cancer, and that it will ultimately claim both of them. I am sorry that this horrible disease has devastated my family. I don't see anyone jumping through hoops to help our family, either.
Maybe my mistake is that I didn’t put up a website about it, then SPAM every e-mail address in the known freaking universe. Here's a clue: If you are trying to get people to contribute money to a cause, you will have a lot more success if you don't PISS THEM OFF by filling their e-mail boxes with your brainless nonsense every freaking day!!!
Whoever is doing this, please do us all a favor and GROW A BRAIN. You’re probably nothing but another pathetic internet scam, anyway. If so I hope you burn in hell forever. Starting tomorrow.
I suppose that now I am going to have to shut down the e-mail address all this idiotic horsecrap is coming to. I don’t know why all the replies are ending up in my e-mail. I don’t know if this band of unwashed cretins has somehow planted a bug in my e-mail program (I doubt it – I have pretty good protection), or if they are simply using my e-mail address as part of their stupid SPAM campaign. I’m going to do some investigating (like I don’t have enough on my plate as it is..), and if that’s the case, I guess I’ll have to retire that particular address. This is one of those cases where I wish I was enough of a geek to be able to hack into their website and shut it down. Or send a nuclear-tipped cruise missle through their front door. Idiots.
I Googled "saving nucha," and found this website: http://perso.orange.fr/saving.Nucha/. Make your own judgement, but I'd bet good money it's a SCAM!
I just received the following e-mail from the The University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center:
Dear CancerWise Subscriber:
You may have received multiple e-mails recently soliciting funds, supposedly for a lung cancer patient, "Nucha." It appears that spammers found a way to exploit the CancerWise subscriber list software, which they then used to send the e-mail. The problem was compounded when recipients replied to the spurious e-mail, which then copied everyone on the subscriber list.
We apologize for the frustration this has caused our valuable subscribers. CancerWise and M. D. Anderson do not condone or support the use of our newsletter subscriber lists for e-mail solicitations. Our technical team has solved the problem and secured the subscriber list from further exploitation, and we are in the process of testing even more secure e-mail solutions for our newsletters.
The University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center
Just another example of how a few pathetic scumballs will stop at nothing to try and scam a buck. Why don't you unwashed losers get a job, and stop trying to take advantage of an organization dedicated to REALLY helping victims of this horrific disease?
