You know, I have to say I am deeply moved by the wonderful generosity of millionaires and billionaires who are so eager to entrust their riches into the hands of random strangers like me. And there’s so many of them!

    Everybody knows that high profile financial “facilitators” use hotmail accounts. Seems legit.

    If you can’t trust a random guy on the internet calling himself Reynaldo Pedregon, who can you trust?

    I envy your receiving such lucrative offers. I use to receive them from Nigerian entrepreneurs and princesses and feel bereft that the emails have stopped. I once read that there is an entire neighborhood in Lagos where those scammers operate. The reporter noted that they were incredulous that so many people in the west actually fall for the ruse.

        Your uncle is writing to Mark Shea? Actually, he looks a bit like my father-in-law when he was younger . . . hmmmm.
