Fred, that's a good one. i usually don't get to see them because they all go to my spam folder. But you would think, with all the effort they put into these scams, at least they would make that little bit of effort to research the spelling and grammar. Hope you got the email about Gadaffi today actually praising the Somali pirates.

The Nigerian 419 scammers are brainless,even when you tell them that you know the game they are play better than them.They are like an abscess that can never go away.I wish there is a way fish them out and be brought to justice.
