Wow- out of the billions of people in the world he chose you out of thin air and is only keeping 9%.

If I were you, I'd give him 10% for the trouble.

You lucky bastard. Dammit...when's my break going to come?

DD said...

You could at least give them your credit card information to help defray his travel expenses.

You greedy bastard.

ANDDDD you'll be featured on Dateline "how not to be suckered into these African cons". No, seriously, Dateline actually did an undercover sting trying to catch these guys and it was really funny to watch.

But you know, it's sad that there are people out there who actually fall for this every single day.

Tony: I was thinking about keeping the 1% diff and forwarding to toward the Col's establishment

Mitch: It sounds like this might not be a one-off. I cooooould forward your contact info if you so desire..? LOL

dd: hey, the dude is keep 10 mil. He might be able to afford a ticket...???

Betty: This is a scam?? My father-in-law was sent a similar invite years and years ago. Only they asked him to travel to ... country to meet with them.

same story, different tactics...

Diana said...

Hehe, we had something similar faxed to our office here, could it be that someone here had fallen for it and already gave the fax number??? How funny...I should start asking the agents if they've come across 7 mil lately...

Belinda said...

You are SOOOO lucky! I wish *I* could get an email like that! You are truly one in a million.

Maria said...

Well. My secret must finally be revealed. I am actually a millionaire. Last month, I received something similar. I must admit that my feelings were hurt at first because they thought I was a gentleman and not a lady. But, I decided to be a good sport and didn't pout.

Now, I am 7 million dollars richer and merely pretending to be poor and still living in a house that is a fixer upper.

I can't have my family find out, you see. So..good luck with your ventures and glad you are one of us at last, sir.
