    IMO, this case is rather more unfortunate, than someone being a "sucker"

    my friend was at home and got mail stating sorry he has been rejected for a credit card he applied for. He never applied for anything. Turns out someone stole his identiy and tried to get a credit card under his name. This kid is in the dark when it comes to computers. He doesnt even own a computer so he didnt do anything to be considered a "sucker". This truely is "unfortunate" as KCNYCHIEF states.

    And just because someone is illerate to computers doesn't make them a sucker. You may know EVERYTHING about computers, and a brain surgeon knows EVERYTHING about brains and nothing about computers. Not everyone is extremely smart with computers. And someone who is extremely smart in computers surely has their grey areas. You can be scammed just as easy with car repair as computers. Does that make someone a sucker because they dont understand something and they get scammed?
