  7. At least these snoozers are using new material. Everyones cottoned on to the 'nigerian' red herring. I get bored of recieving those ones.
     
  8. Original and funny. I like a modest man. Are you going to respond?

    Sorry Mike....he e-mailed me earlier today about this, and I took him up on his offer.

    Out of the 6+ billion people on the earth, what are the chances he would pick two guys that post on the same bass guitar forum to ask for help?? This is truly weird!

  11. So, are you gonna lead this joker on and mess with him?
     
  12. So... you mean MJ5150 is just messing with Mike Money? Like he really didn't get that important email of opportunity? You mean he didn't send his account info? I'm so confused!

    Curses on this interweb thingy!

    I have no affiliation with Mike Money. This joyous transaction I have partaken in with Mr. Aziz Hassan is between him and I only. Well, God is with us in the most joyful transaction. :)

    I was just letting Mike know that I already claimed the cash. Too slow sucka!!!

    The odds aren't so grand. Considering most of these are sent out just as other spam is, using large or generated lists of mails sent through open relays or hacked accounts.

    Theres been many sites dedicated to archiving peoples stories regarding them. The most amusing ones are when certain individuals have baited them into long drawn out conversations and asking them to pose with hand drawn signs, saying some... umm, well, interesting things.

    You might, oh, say, search google for such content, it can easily kill a couple days at work :)
