Today's GRQ scheme:

Dear Friend,

I am Dr Vincent LO Hong Sui, Executive Director of the Hang Seng Bank Ltd, Sai Wan Ho Branch, Hong Kong,I have an obscured business suggestion for you.Am here-by seeking your service in helping me receive a large amount of money and in giving a clear research and feasibility studies on area I could invest on.

Your services will be paid for, and you will be a partner, if your recommendation is accepted.As a bank employee, I can not operate any personal investment till I am retired and with the Anti-corruption Bill passed in Hong Kong; it is risky for a fixed income earner to own any huge amount of money in Hong Kong or any foreign country.It is then advisable to investment in any foreign land secretly and patiently wait retirement.For security purpose, due to telecoms interception in Hong Kong, I shall not accept or acknowledge any phone call.

Only fax messages/ emails would be treated in relation to this proposal but not without this code;[CODENO: AM-002].Should you be further interested, Contact me through this email for further confidential correspondence:

Warm Regards
Dr Vincent LO Hong Sui.


That's right, he wants you to help him receive a large sum of money. But if he's in Hong Kong, why is his TLD not 'hk'?

Honest would have been before 'pidgeon english' took over and made the message too obscure to care about.

I guess there-fore, he must need some help with-in his own personal finances. How-ever, I don't think you should do it even if you have the where-withal.

we have sliding dimmers for the lights in some of the meeting rooms
the ones they installed don't shut off power until the slider is pushed past the "click"

so management decided we need signs:

"Please click to turn off"

one of these days I'm going to print my own signs
that say:

"Please provide your own mouse"

with a pic of a USB port.
