    Default Totally unrelated to anything to do with Ghost Towns

    Forgive me, Gary!

    I learn a lot here; there's some great advice and a whole lot of "people resources" to tap into.
    I've come to respect a lot of the contributors, but none more than my good buddies BadBob and Brian.
    This humble effort was inspired by them - (and 4 days of torrential rain, effectively keeping this wheelchair-bound 'bad boy' at home. At least the s***** are safe, for the honest bhurgers of Victoria!)
    I submit it in all humility and will greatfully accept any performance tips from the Masters.

    My effort at 419ing:

    Charlie, my dear friend!
    Look, I know you are trying, and that should get you some respect, but seriouslyÖ.basic errors give all us scammers a bad name.
    How can you writeUSD$6,200,000.00 and thenSix Million and Two hundred United States Dollars? Itís Six Million and Two hundred THOUSAND United States Dollars!!! Got it? Two Hundred THOUSAND! **** it man, that is such a simple thing to check!
    Honestly, Charlie, how do you expect to get ahead in criminal enterprise if you make childish, stupid errors like that?
    Donít you know prisons are full of STUPID people, who didnít think things through carefully? I admire a good con as much as the next man, but youíve failed at the first obstacle.
    Look, old son, if you like, Iíll share some of my expertise, some of my years of experience robbing white people. Iíve been running scams like this for 30 years and have never been caught! How else do you think I get to live in Australia, a capitalist paradise, while you slink around the Internet cafes of Garki-Abuja (OH, how I miss it!), like a thief in the night, before returning to your mud-floor hut?
    Stop being an amateur. The future looks like your presentÖ. and that is bad; bad for you and bad for me, your friend. Not much in store for old Charlie, if he keeps on going this way.
    But, Charlie, I can help you. I have a booklet on how to successfully fool Westerners. They are easy, if you know how. Play on the fact that they feel inferior to us real men of Africa and the money starts flowing. Just look how they send money to ďCharitiesĒ when there is a little hunger. I mean, we donít give a **** but these whities cry big tearsÖ. and send money. Fools! They will pay YOU, if you know how to make them feel sorry for you.
    Just send me AUD$25:00 and Iíll be happy to send you a copy. I guarantee success or your money back.
    The airmail freight charges are ďon meĒ; after all, we are after big game, and whatís 25 bucks between friends?
    Mr Peg Legpete.

    Wish me luck! If the $25 turns up...the Slurpies are on me!

    Nothing to forgive, you posted an "other" topic in the "other" topic section. It's nice to know you can read and understand basic English unlike 70% of our XBox generation.

    Very well done, Pete! That took some some and effort on your part. I can only hope to be inspired by your example!

    If you actually get them to send you money you deserve some kind of trophy. Well done, mate.
