    I get 2 everyday from the same man who says my Uncle In Pakistan, Umar Qureshi has died, man it would be soo horrible, but everyday he dies a new way yesterday it was he was in a plane crash and then later he died in a car accident. And he has left me a horrible amount of money, except he doesn't know my first name he calls me Mr. Qureshi.
    I have given pointers out to these people.... I really have, but they don't seem to heed my advice. I don't know why.

    Not very nice of you, Rainmaker.

    You disguised the email and phone information so you could keep all the $$$ for yourself. That is downright selfish...

    The other day I got one from someone "representing" the old head of Yukos (big Russian oil company)...forgot his name, but it's the guy who's in jail now...

    Apparently he's smart enough to have successfully hidden $46 million USD from the Russian Feds, yet he needs my help to transfer the funds

    My only advice, and this is REALLY REALLY important, never under any circumstance, accept the position of Admiral of the Nigerian Navy, that guy is always getting knocked off, can't tell you how many widows contacted me, what are the odds of THAT happening?! I must be on an Admiral widow's hotline, or something.

    Isn't "$1,000,000.00 Million United States Of America Dollars" a quadrillion? Did I do the math on that right?

    Seems like a lot of money. You should go for it!
