I’m thinking of sending this email to thousands of Americans:
My friend Jim owes me twenty dollars. Unfortunately, it is well past time for him to pay it back and he doesn’t have it. No matter. Jim is a psychic and he’s told me you have the twenty dollars he would have if he was actually willing to work for a living. So, please send me the twenty dollars because Jim owes me the money you are currently the custodian of. Thank you!
I figure I’ll get at least $100 for every random thousand emails I send out. So, my question is: Is it ethical to solicit easy money when I’m not actually running for any high elected office?
