Now when my money comes through I can sit back and do nothing while all of the Plebes here at TR are slaving their guts out and laugh. Though I did at least think that the people in the USA could spell much better than what is posted above not to mention use correct Grammar or at the very least use Capitals to start sentences and for names of things like Countries and People.

Actually I got a bit of a shock with this it's been over 2 years since I've got any Spam now and I'm not sure how this clown got my E-Mail Address. Most likely the ISP's been Cracked yet again. But I'll have to send them my main Bank Account Details as I just love to watch the Ballance grow. :^0

edited to add What can I saw I just love this bit united state of america so what happened to the rest of the states did they get flooded by all the global warming and no longer exist?

You call that rich?

by jardinier In reply to I is rich

I get several of these every day, which AOL kindly deposits in the spam folder. But mostly they are Nigerian scams offering amounts like $ 6,000,000.

Through an African matchmaking site that I somehow signed up to, I get them from "orphans" in Senegal especially.

I save the photos (the girls are usually very nice looking) and tell the girls they are obviously scammers.

Obviously I did not understand the question. I was feeling bored and looking for a discussion that was not too technical. It is hard to find interesting off-topic threads these days, and those are all that I am qualified to participate in as I have never worked in IT.

That's your problem, right there...

by AnsuGisalas In reply to Apology

Staying on safe ground, your imagination wilts, the soil around your roots is spent, nourishments depleted. And then you no longer recognize satire even as it bites you on the ***.
Live a little, jump in the deep end

Michael Kassner's blogs are quite approachable, right now it's about credit cards. Do you have one? Then you qualify.

for the encouragement.

I joined TR in November, 2002, just before the invasion of Iraq. So there were many discussions about that. I started a number of threads, mostly about religion as that is my main field of interest.

At one time I was ranked No 30 of the top 100 in site activity.

I now mostly post at religious forums because the people stay on topic and do not start tangents of personal repartee.

The off-topic discussions over the past few years have not been anywhere near the quality of the earlier ones which consisted primarily of serious posts without the pointless chatter.

I myself love repartee but I exchange this with real (corporeal) people I encounter during the day, and do not need to use TR discussions for this purpose.

There are TR members in Chicago

by DMambo In reply to I is rich

I can't believe that you didn't think of just forwarding the info to a peer in Chicago (I guess the united state is Illinois) for pick-up. It'll save you the FedEx charges.

$350,000 does seem like small potatoes. This must be legit because I think scams are legally required to be for $2,500,000 or more.

Well, to begin with, there is no "Federal Reserve Bank of America'

by robo_dev In reply to I is rich

The one in Chicago is known as the 'Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago'

Obviously, banks send things like this all the time using unencrypted email. :)

Which totally didn't make sense right off the bat!
