Just had some great spam from the FBI with he subject line: "YOUR FUNDS HAS BEEN RELEASE BY FBI TODAY CONTACT US NOW"

Now, I'm pretty sure that FBI personnel can write English correctly; so that was a bad start.

Anyway, the thing that really made me laugh was the name of the person with whom I'm expected to correspond and hand over my bank details:

"To effect the release of your fund valued at $3.5Million us dollars you are advised to contact our correspondent in Africa the delivery officer SIR .LORD RUBBEN with the information below,


Name:LORD RUBBEN
Email:lordr@yahoo.cn
Telephone: +234.816.324.8567
You are advised to contact him with the information's as stated below:"


Well, since this email clearly has the ring of truth to it I will send them what they want as I know, of course that Sir (dot)Lord Rubben is obviously a man to be trusted. Smile | :)

I'm just surprised that these 419ers haven't employed someone what can write proper Inglish for them. Smile | :)
