Dear God, I am very sorry...

I just got this letter:

From: Mrs Lilian Jones

I am the above named person from Kuwait. I am married to Dr.Harry Jones who worked with Kuwait embassy in Ivory Coast for nine years before he died in the year 2000. We were married for eleven years without a child. He died after a brief illness that lasted for only four days. Before his death we were both born again Christians. Since his death I decided not to re-marry or get a child outside my matrimonial home which the Bible is against.When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of 10Million Dollars (Ten Million United State Dollars) with one finance/security company in Amsterderm Holland.

I'm sure you can guess the rest of the letter.

So, I sent the following reply:

Dear Mrs. Jones:

Wow, that makes me so happy! I am trying to raise enough funds for my coven of witches!

Thank you!

Have you ever seen the site ?

The authors of this site engage in conversations with the scam artists and get them to pose for ridiculous photos.

100% hilarious.

Fricking Blogger. I double-checked that code before I posted it.

I get those letters all the time. I am amazed at how many rich people die in car accidents and leave a billion dollars in a bank and all they need is my checking account info to send me money

Yes I have seen that site before and yes it is funny. I'm amazed at how many of these emails I get, at least one a week.

I've been getting those steadily. I just delete them. I got duped into responding once (a woman was saying she'd pay me to help her get to America and live in our house (after I paid a few "fees"), I tried to offer her legitimate alternatives).
