Scammer Gets Trolled and Taken on Wild Ride

We can't believe this scamming tactic ever works. How many people believe that a complete stranger claiming to be a CEO or government official or whatever would need you to pay them with gift cards? Either way, when it happens to savvy people, they try to have fun with a text message scammer. The person on the other end is apparently so desperate for those gift cards that scammers can get trolled for a ridiculously long time.

Netflix Hacker Messages Account Owner So He Can Finish His Show

This guy has got moxie. Sometimes people just think that asking for someone's stuff will get them that stuff, like this incompetent lowballer who demanded a guys address so he could steal his bike. It's too bad this guy probably didn't get to finish watching his show, I mean, two episodes left, that's gotta hurt.

Viral Conversation Spawns Too Many Vegetable Artist Memes

Old but gold and also weird. Last year a facebook post of this strange conversation featured an apparently very defensive James Barrett's wife taking over JB's facebook account to deliver a prickly message to someone whose only crime was planning to draw vegetables. Anyway the lack of context, unbridled aggression and overt weirdness caused it to be shared thousands of times. Plus, it spawned a bunch of memes. It became the viral sensation known as "James Barret's Wife"

This girl was absolutely dumbfounded when she started receiving a string of agressive messages from an old high school acquaintance. Turns out the messages were coming from the guy's insanely jealous girlfriend who had hijacked her man's account. 


I think a good first step would to get this chick some english classes because it's pretty hard to decipher what she's getting at here.

This heartfelt letter washed up in a bottle from the ocean to be found by Steve Mershon.  The letter says this:

Dear Daniel, I'm really sorry that you pass away. And if you were alive me and you will be playing football, soccer and basketball with Mathew, Oscar and Brandon. I am in the fifth grade and you were my best friend and our favorite song was Austin Moon and I hope you have fun with Jesus.
 
From your best friend, 
Jonathan Torres


Mershon posted pictures of this message, along with a note to Jonathan on Facebook:

Dear Jonothan Torres.. My name is Steve, and I found your note in a bottle on a beautiful Tuesday morning, April 19th.. First of all, let me tell you what a strong little man you are for writing your best friend that letter.. You show so much love in your heart way beyond your years.. Your parents, friends,teachers,myself, and all of my friends who know I found your letter are so proud of you.. Daniel is a lucky guy to have you as a best friend.. I'm so sorry he passed.. As your letter states, you guys must've played a lot of sports together with Mathew, Oscar and Brandon. I'm sure Daniel would want you to know that when you guys are playing sports, he and Jesus are watching and rooting for you.. Perhaps your next touchdown, goal, or basket you can dedicate to your best friend Daniel. I don't know where you threw your note in the ocean, or how long it was in the water, but it landed in the right hands, Jonothan.. You see, I find lots of things on the beach, and the best ones I keep.. I have shelves full of wood, shells, sunglasses and, yes, bottles.. Jonothan, your bottle, with your letter to your best friend, is the most beautiful thing I have ever found. It would trump anything in my collection.. But I can't.. Won't.. You threw that bottle out to show your love for your best friend.. It is meant to be shared.. I took pictures of it, and shared it with friends on my Facebook page.. It tugged at many heartstrings, Jonothan.. But it's going to be shared with more people.. Like I said, it fell into the right hands.. You see, I think Daniel put the bottle ashore where I found it, and his friend Jesus led me to it. I'll tell you why. I've had plans for a few weeks to go way out on the ocean on a big cruise ship. I'm going to take your letter and your bottle with me. I'm going to add my own little letter to it, Jonothan, and put the cork back in it, and when I find the deepest, prettiest, most blue water I can find, I'm going to throw it back in.. So someone else, along with their friends, can see the love in your heart. You're a good man, Jonothan. I'm hoping maybe, just maybe, the world can see the love in one fifth graders heart, and we can, one by one, all get along.. Peace, little man!
Backlash of The Day: Was This Starbuck's Barista's Flirty Message on A Cup Inappropriate?

You gotta watch out for those Starbucks lovers.

Laura Roberts, a 19-year-old customer at Starbucks in London, received a rather flirty (and cheesy) message on her coffee cup from a male barista.

The unidentified employee scratched out the hot coffee warning and left this message: "Careful you're extremely hot" with an arrow and smily face.

Calm down, lover boy!

The thing is Roberts is engaged and her mom has Facebook—both big problems. Her mom posted a photo of the cup on the Sh*t London Facebook page.

The post received tons of backlash and angry comments, but Roberts is choosing to not identify the barista.

"It's my local Starbucks and he's lovely," she told MailOnline. "He always does it."

"That day I sent a picture of the cup to my mum, because she lives quite far away and she put the picture on Facebook."

Moral of the story: Keep mom off Facebook.
