Allow me to explain the scam in simple English exactly as it was
shared with me by Robert Campbell.
A tribe of jigaboos from Nigeria use stolen credit card information to
buy products for resale there, or used as a gift to the head
porchmonkey in exchange for the rights to hump some jungle bunny in
his village. You accept the order from the yard apes, ship the goods
to the bootlips, and get whacked with a chargeback once the true
cardholder becomes aware of the charges.
Oh those crazy coloreds and their innovative methods of committing
This bullshit never would have happened had Abraham Lincoln remained
sober but Abe pulled the cork and now the mud ducks are running amok.
