your Country.

Again, I would have paid for the Security Keeping fee of $440 usd but they said no because they

don't know when you will contact them and in case of demurrage.You have to contact the FEDEX

I was reading your blog and I see you have a very impressive way of describing things. The information you provide is very helpful. So I was wondering if you could take a look at our product pinhole glasses and write a review about it in your blog www.

I would really be interested to know if you would accept payment for this review or try our product and the rest is up to you.

I usually do delete without opening , this one I opened at the internet cafe and just copied the contents without forwarding it, back to myself.

Makes you really wonder about these people but I suppose there are gullible people who will fall for it.

Dear Mr O Donnell

I represent a Scottish Family stranded in Adelaide. We have come across a distant family fortune in the UK, but we need to open an account in the United Kingdom to access the money.

For a very small management fee of 10,000 pounds we will open the account and immediately withdraw all the money and leave you with nothing.

You will be left with a good feeling of helping a family in need and having been ripped off.

Would that work for you?

jams o donnell said...

Colin I will wire the fee forthwith!
