    First off, I noticed the phone number "witheld" misspelled-lol. Since Inge is a woman's name, I'd invite her to meet you, "Mr. 1,000,000 Pounds" for a spot of tea. Call 'em on their bluff. :)

    I gave her my bank account numbers and the passwords so that she could deposit the money there. I think we are both going to be very rich!

    Why did you post this on a public space? I just claimed your million dollar prize myself and received a confirmation that they will be wiring me the $million$.

    What a sucker you are.

    She's from an East European country, and sent me an email saying she was a beauty queen of her country and would marry me if I sent a couple thousand dollars for her airfare, bridal gown and necessary paperwork.

    I sent it a month back (by selling all my tennis rackets) but she's a tad delayed due to her mother's illness. She wants another thousand or two for my future mother in laws operation which i am arranging by selling my car.

    We will be married and live happily ever after the moment she arrives.

    I sold a camcorder on **** once, selling for £300.00 via Buy It Now, and wouldn't you know it, a nice young man from Nigeria offered to buy it for £347.32 AND offered to pay the postage price on top! All I had to do was give him my email address & post the camera to him, and he would electronically wire me the money afterwards.

    What nice people there are in this world :)

    [EDIT]

    Hmm, I had no idea that popular internet "e bidding" auction website was blocked on here.

    check out this other funny spam email I got a while back. I saved it because it was so ridiculous.

    ********************************************************
    NOW ANYONE CAN ROB A BANK AND GET AWAY WITH IT!!!
    ********************************************************

    Last month I took $87,978 from banks and YOU CAN TOO.

    In fact you won't believe how easy it is to virtually
    steal $4000...$10,000 or MORE each and every month until
    you do it yourself.

    - See for yourself here.

    I had an email from a guy that had an e-mai with FedEx on it and it was around 3 paragraphs. Basically, it said to keep my account from being charged, I had to send $55 to someone in Nigeria via Money Order.

    I never used FedEx morons...

    :lol:

    P.S.

    Steve, that e-mail is so loaded, it will explode!
