Got to love this BS, don't you? I always get these depending on what email they are coming in to. How many people actually fall for this stuff. I remember the old letters of days gone by and hearing people sending money to Nigeria and such, but these guys are all over the world doing this stuff by email. I should be a multi-billionair by now.

I have heard quite a few stories of people falling for these things. That must be why they keep doing it.

Boy, talk about getting things messed up! I told Chris that Mary was a dingbat and would never get the story straight. She was supposed to say it was a gambling debt owed to Randy, I have no idea how your name (Ken) came up. And the to top it off agent Duke is calling Mary by her maiden and married name. :dontknow:
