    I got a pleasant letter from Spain today.

    A Mrs. Maria Mosquera Gonzalez, who is blessed with two children and works in a bank, has a business opportunity for me.

    She discovered an abandoned $91 million in her bank's vaults that belongs to a customer who shares my surname. This customer has died, in a fatal car accident, but sadly no next of kin has claimed his fortune. Fortunately, I have the same surname, and Mrs. Gonzalez can help me claim this money as the next of kin. If I don't help her, the Spanish government will claim the money after five years.

    How do I help this poor woman. She is obviously sincere, intelligent and professional. I mean, the letter seems so formal. What are the odds of me having the same last name as the deceased. That can't be a coincidence. I can't believe my luck today!

    You should help her in any way you can! She's obviously in need and well, it could potentially be good for you.

    Where's your sense of good judgement?

    btw, i know your first name now. :p

    Oh yes. I'm sure she's very sincere.

    And what an amazing coincidence, Rec 3000 that you and I have the same last name. Dear Maria sent me a letter too.

    Funny thing though, I received an email from someone in Africa that had the same business opportunity for me.

    Wow what a stroke of luck for you. What are you going to do with your new found wealth?
    You would be wise to hire a professional financial adviser and probably a tax professional also.
    Oh and by all means get a new unlisted telephone number and if you have many friends and family move and leave no forwarding address. I know this seem harsh but they soon will become nothing but a bunch of free loaders with their hands aways extended out and in your direction.
    OH and by the way do have that twenty you owe me?

    Wow and I thought I was special when a prince from Nigeria picked me via e-mail. She really brought her 'A' game by posting a letter.

    Waitin' for the Rapture is a loser's game.
    I say go for it, rec.
    (Say you only get 10 percent. That's still $9.1 million. That'd buy a lot of hard lemonade.)

    unfinished transfer of fund into your account due to one reason or the other
    best known to you.But I want to inform you that I have successfully
    transferred
    the Cheque out of the company to someone else who was capable of assisting me
    in this great venture.

    course of the transaction I want to compensate you and show my
    gratitude to you
    with the sum of $1,000,000.00 (ONE MILLION UNITED STATES DOLLARS) I have
    authorized the finance house where I deposited mymoney to issue you
    international certified bank draft cashable at your bank.

    The name and contact address of the Person with it is Mr Paul Anderson is as
    follows.

    CONTACT AGENT: Mr PAUL ANDERSON.

    Rec, that letter isn't genuine, it's spam. SPAM, SPAM SPAM!
    Send it to the Mounties or destroy it. Last year I received one letter-- an E-mail-- that claimed I had won a few million pounds on the UK Lottery. How is it possible to win on the lottery without buying a ticket?

    Always remember when something is too good to be true, it usually is.

    SPAM, SPAM, SPAM!
