Gizmodo to World - Stop Scammin'

We get a few thousand emails per week from scammers wanting to "BUY MANYPHONE WHAT YOU HAVE?" Please note: we at Gizmodo do not sell phones, PCs, laptops, sandwiches, or massages. We do not have any in stock nor do we have anything at all. We are very poor.

For extra fun, please read on to see a wonderful exchange with Isaac in Ghana who, because he uses relay, always ends his statements with "ga."
