Non Cents

Emails Sent in by Joe:

(Joe says: "Carrie was a one-night stand I had in mid-2005. I received this message in late 2007. I don't recall her leaving any money whatsoever:")


Hey Joe this is Carrie. How are you? I think I left some money at your house when i was there so let me know when I can come by to pick it up!

Hope you are well,
Carrie

Joe Responds:

Dear Carrie:

I'm sorry, but if you left anything here, it's long gone. Take care.

Joe

Carrie Responds:

How would you like a lawsuit, then? My boyfriend is a lawyer. Afriad yet? He has won every case and I plan to tell him about yout extortion scheme. There is a long statute of limitations on theft, buddy, and you're in the middle of a really big problem that's only going to get bigger for you. Swallow some pride and give me back my money.


************************************
Joe Responds:

How much did you leave here?


************************************
Carrie Responds:

About $35-$40. Don't worry about interest. You can send it over as soon as possible!


************************************
Joe Responds:

I only found 27 cents behind my bed. What's your address?


************************************
Carrie Responds:

I'll see you in court. Forwarding these to my bf! :)

(Joe says: "Never heard from her after that. It's a pity, as I really wanted to see how it would've played out in court in front of her boyfriend with a frank description of our actions leading up to the 'loss' of her money.")

  1. Oh wow. I was really expecting a larger amount of money there. How bizarre.

  2. The small amount is the most she could realistically get from anyone stupid enough to fall for such a scam. She probably sent these to a few of her one night stands.
    I also doubt her boyfriend was a lawyer.

  3. Why does your one night stand have your email address?

    1. That's just how it happens sometimes. I've given my number to one night stands and sometimes e-mail addresses.

  4. OP should have offered to mail it to her boyfriend directly, along with a rating of one to five stars.

  5. I was honestly expecting even less money. Like 5-10 dollars. 40 almost legitimizes it (well no, not after 2 years, but I digress). I guess I've been taught to expect super crazy.

  6. I can't even fathom the amount of desperation that would go into trying to shake down a former one-night-stand for $35 bucks. That's just a few steps above sucking cocks behind a dumpster on the desperate-o-meter.

    In all seriousness, she should have just said she was down on her luck and would he give her some money? That's pitiful too, but seems more noble somehow.
