So one of my photographer friends shared something funny today...
I'm sure you've heard of internet scams and may have even received a scam email before. As a small business owner you get a ton of them and deleting them becomes part of your routine. But instead of deleting this one, Amy decided to respond. She put the correspondence on her blog if you'd like to see:
Always be the Honey Badger. Never be the Cobra.
I asked her if I could share the rest of the conversation that she didn't put on her blog and she yes! So here is the rest of the story:
"I decided to call it quits, because he started going for the kill right away:
