Summary

Strong Bad Email #12

Strong Bad gets a scam e-mail trying to trick him into giving out his credit card information. So he edits it and forwards it to Homestar.

Features: Strong Bad, Homestar Runner (voice over)

Transcript

STRONG BAD: Initiate the email checking in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.

Dear Mr. Bad

We regret to inform you that your credit card
has expired. To keep your account, we will need
you to send your old credit card number and
expiration date, as well as a new one so we can
make the change. We promise we are real and
not just trying to steal your money.

John, and some other people
who aren't scam artists

STRONG BAD: Whoa, this sounds pretty serious. I know just what to do. {He changes "Mr. Bad" to "Homestar Runner", and the signature to "Superfied Credit Union". He then types "forward message", forwarding it to Homestar Runner.}

{Fade to black. The text "5 minutes later" is typed in, then after a pause, backspaced out. Fade back in.}

STRONG BAD: Okay, let's see what we got here...

{Strong Bad and a voice-over of Homestar begin reading simultaneously, but Strong Bad stops reading after the word "Credit".}

Dear Superfied Credit Union,
You've got the same e-mail address as my
friend Strong Bad! Anyway, here's my
credit card information:

{The following is not read aloud.}

Exp. 13/02

STRONG BAD: {laughing} That was too easy, man. Well, it looks like Homestar is about to make a little contribution to the Lots of Awesome Stuff for Strong Bad Fund. {He types in "internet" and goes to The Coolest Stuff Ever, a website that has a lot of really expensive stuff, and proceeds to make several purchases.}

{The Paper comes down.}
