On being scammed…. alas

The fool, a common character in Shakespeare plays“… he that is so yoked by a fool,
Methinks, should not be chronicled for wise.”
(Two Gentlemen from Verona act 1, sc. 1)

Tips for Use.
The quote should be printed and glued to the back of a phone set or even a cell phone. Profit is a gargantuan monster and leaves free reign to whoever anytime anywhere to take advantage of others. Any blog attempting to list the variety of scams perpetrated on mankind would probably clog the Internet. However, to any potential scammer a possible reply could be, “Scammers are fools and I do not want to be one of whom it is said,  “He that is so yoked by a fool, methinks, should not be chronicled for wise.””

In the play.Valentine scoffs at Proteus who is in love with Julia. The ‘fool’ in question is actually love that has ensnared and enslaved Proteus. However, notwithstanding appearances, Proteus is not very steady in his affections. As soon he is in Milan he falls in love with Silvia, Valentine’s girlfriend and tries unsuccessfully to steal her away from him.
