Yea right, makes me laugh too. What makes me laugh is the way they write it, like so serious. What do these guys think we are? Morons. Not us but they sure are. When I receive such mails, I send a mail back to them saying that I'm interested and u won't believe wat replies I get. My queries don't stop and neither do their replies. And when they really start to think that I fell for it, I give them the shock. Cool, huh. Maybe other ppl do that too.

Yeah, I've received so many letter like the ones you receive. It is such foolish letters, and I wonder how they are thinking that we can actually believe that. I don't know, but maybe they are hoping that somebody out there would really believe and deposited money to them! Hope not, though. Have a nice day, pal.

I Have received emails like this as well. It's pathetic. I will let you know, that I have replied to these people and asked them to email the money to me, using my paypal account. Paypal converts the money and deposits it, and makes sure it's there. Funny, I've never found 25 million dollar deposit into my account. LOL!!
