    Anybody STUPID enough to fall for a Nigerian 419 scam deserves to be taken for a ride especially if they had previously invested with Bernie Madoff!

    DON'T GET ME WRONG I AM NOT JUST AGREEING I AM A LOT MORE UPSET THAN THE OTHERS. Msn is just getting worse and worse. I forgot my password mainly because I have been asked to change my password for yahoo so many times I can't remember who is who. So I hit forgot my password. They gave me a choice of phone numbers to fill in some of the numbers that I had ten years ago I don't bother with old telephone numbers. I sent another request this time they asked my mothers maiden name thank God I have that never changing. Then they have the nerve to show my picture and my name and say someone else must be using my acct. BECAUSE THEY HAVE HAD NUMEROUS REQUESTS FOR CHANGING OR RECOVERING PASSWORD REALLY !!! I KNOW THAT IT IS ME... WOT THE HECK ARE YOU PEOPLE REALLY THIS IGNORANT OR IS IT JOKE MONTH IN THE USA. WHEN YOU NEED ALL OF US TO SIGN UP FOR MSN YOU WERE ON THE BALL NOW YOU HAVE SERIOUSLY DROPPED IT. YOU MAY NEED US AGAIN WHEN WE ALL LEAVE. NOW HEAR THIS I DON'T THINK WE ARE GOING TO SIGN UP AGAIN FOR THIS HASSLE. OH AND ONE MORE THING YOU WANT MORE INFO FOR 2 STEP NOT TO FORGET PASSWORD. WELL YOU BETTER NOT FORGET I T BECAUSE I COULD READ BEHIND MY REQUEST FOR NEW PASSWORD. IT SAYS IF YOU SIGNED UP FOR 2 STEP YOU CAN'T RECOVER. LOL YEAH I AM LOSING IT HERE. TAKE MY WORD FOR IT I AM THE PERSON TRYING TO GET A PASSWORD YOU ARE THE ONES HAVING TROUBLE WITH IT. IT ISN'T ANYONE ELSE IT IS ME. i AM SURE AT THE VERY LEAST 20 TIMES. OH AND I HAVE BEEN MARRIED AND DIVORCED SINCE I STARTED THIS BLOODY ACCOUNT AND I WENT BACK TO MY MAIDEN NAME SO THAT MIGHT BE THE ONLY THING THAT I GAVE WRONG. GET PEOPLE IN THERE TO WORK COMPUTERS CAN'T UNDERSTAND OBVIOUSLY WHEN THERE MAY BE A SHORT NAME TOO CHARLES LIKE CHAS. OR CHUCK. BEVERLY TO BEV EASY TO UNDERSTAND GIVE SOME JOBS THIS COUNTRY NEEDS THEM I FOR ONE AND I AM OBVIOUSLY SMARTER. TO SMART TO DO IT FOR NOTHING. NOW HOW ARE YOU GOING TO ANSWER THIS QUESTION OR ARE YOU JUST TAKING A SURVEY????? ONE MORE THING HOW CAN A COMPLAINT BE HELPFUL TO ME ( NEWS FLASH THE COMPLAINT IS FOR YOU TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO HELP US )
