    I wish someone would give me freewill donative.

    I've also been getting "Facebook Update" phishing emails too lately... and spams telling me I can improve my confidence with a new watch.

    Do these actually work? Ugh. I can't imagine how.

    Sounds like a pretty good deal tho - "please donative some money to me , I will suppose you all the time"

    If you donative him some money, looks like he'll suppose you all the time, like a buddy for life. He'll have your back when times are hard.

    Now, just suppose that he supposes me... I'm not sure I'd want to be supposed all the time.

    This hard to read, it's starting to give me a headache as my brain is trying to figure out what the heck he is saying.

    For going on this kind service , I need your donative. Hope your freewill donative. How many dollar is not important, it beyond freewill. We will keep to help other man.
    You should reply back and say that since "How many dollar is not important" that you send none and that your thought is important. And, of course, thank him for his "suppose", you can't get enough of that anymore. If you really need suppose, give me kind donative and I'll suppose you when the donative is received.

    I got one today that's almost as good:

    Hello,

    How are you doing! I hope you are fine? I'm sorry i didn't inform you about my trip to Scotland for a program, I'm presently in Scotland and got mugged at a gun point by some armed robbers on my way to the hotel where my money and other valuable things were kept including my passport. I would like you to assist me with a loan of 1,900Pounds to sort-out my hotel bills and get myself back home.

    I have spoken to the embassy here but they are not responding to the matter effectively,I will appreciate whatever you can afford to assist me with,I'll Refund the money back to you as soon as i return, let me know if you can be of any help. I don't have a phone where i can be reached.

    Please let me know immediately.
    Regards

    James Nyakundi
    I'm pissed that he didn't inform me was going to Scotland! Sure, I'll send the $3,000 + right away since you promised to pay it back. Even though you didn't tell me you were going to Scotland I KNOW you'll pay this back. Are you sure that will be enough? Why doesn't your hotel have a phone?

    I should reply back:

    Hi James,

    I'm sorry to hear about your trouble. I went to the bank and got the money you need but I too was mugged. The police caught the mugger but they're holding my money as evidence. They told me they would release it if I post a $1,000 bail for it. Can you send me $1,000? If so, I'll get my $3,000 out and send that to you right away-I promise!

    I had a weird sort of begging Chinese spam just recently: http://www.dynamoo.com/blog/2009/10/uh-what.html

    At least it makes a change from fake Viagra and counterfeit watches.
