I've ordered the plane tickets Alice and I will be there to sail through the Alps with you.
@Pondus, don't worry your included.

Great, I'll take care that the Alps get inverted, so that we can sail there. ;)

A very eventful day. Dr. Oloye Bello apologizes that our last transaction failed
so he want's to send me $1.65 Million and hopes we have better luck this time.
Isn't that nice. ??? More money to share.  ;D

Now this is amazing, an assistant manager from the Bank of Africa
has discovered that a relative of mine has died and I appear to be in line for
a rather large inheritance : $5.3 Million shared on a 50 - 50 basis. WOW  ;D
What's more amazing is the fact that I've never been in that part of the world and,
as far as I know, neither have any of my ancestors.  ;D

Oddly, while I get those emails from time to time, I got a surprise a few days ago when one "advised" me I was supposedly a jackpot winner in one I actually do, once in a blue moon, buy tickets for, Canada's 6/49.  Still a scam, obviously, but maybe they're actually paying a little attention to things like geographic location, for a change.

Even most (relatively) legit telemarketers can't be bothered with bothersome details like demographics ... it's amazing the number of calls I get from home-repair operations who are pretty obviously unhappy to learn that I'm a tenant in a fairly large apartment complex.  ;D

I get them from all kinds of addresses, lawyers and bank officers in Nigeria and the UK, even the 'FBI". I also get mail about my account in the game Runescape even though I have never had one.

Oh i just got an email from Amanda Kirk which said I won $500, 000 and brand new Mercedes and contact a phone number to confirm my winnings. The email looked official and if i didn't know any better, I would have been jumping for joy by now. But no coz the phone number listed on there, i found out, has been reported to be a scam number at this site http://www.callercenter.com/32485984515.html.

I reported this to the authorities already and I hope everybody remains vigilant and avoid becoming a victim to these scammers.
