I like the Chinese lettering at the top of the email -- looking all international gives it a touch of authenticity. It's really tempting to call these guys in the middle of the night Nigeria time, but I prefer email as my main form of communication:
Man oh man oh schevitz, am I glad you got in touch with me! Glenn Beck was talking about this the other day, how there have been screw-ups with credit cards. Like a billion dollars or something just waiting to be given to cardholders. Thank you for your honesty! It gives me faith in my fellow man!
You say I need to give you $32, and that's fine. How do I do that? Can I send you a check? If you live close enough to me (I live in Arizona -- go, Wildcats!) I can see you in person.
Please reply soon. Two and a half million can go a long way these days. Heck, I could own all of Jerome!
Too much? Perhaps. Another dead end.
