With his impressive spelling and grammar skills, I can't believe I waited this long! Where do I sign??
I'm surprised that these things are still going around. The only reason that they would be, is if some hapless dope managed to fall for it. Now that would be a sad day...

I'd love to hear what they have to say though..

ZOMG sign me up!!
Actually there was a good article in the New Yorker about 1-2 weeks ago about a guy who fell for one of these scams and ended up losing $150k .... Can you say, sucka?? No seriously, I feel bad for the guy, but sheesh... how naive can you be... :P

People do fall for it. If nobody fell for it, they wouldn't do it.
