Hmm...this one looks genuine: I AM GEORGE WALKER BUSH, SON OF THE FORMER PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA GEORGE HERBERT WALKER BUSH.... THIS LETTER MIGHT SURPRISE YOU BECAUSE WE HAVE NOT MET NEITHER IN PERSON NOR BY CORRESPONDENCE. I CAME TO KNOW OF YOU IN MY SEARCH FOR A RELIABLE AND REPUTABLE PERSON TO HANDLE A VERY CONFIDENTIAL BUSINESS TRANSACTION.... I AM WRITING YOU IN ABSOLUTE CONFIDENCE PRIMARILY TO SEEK YOUR ASSISTANCE IN ACQUIRING OIL FUNDS THAT ARE PRESENTLY TRAPPED IN THE REPUBLIC OF IRAQ....

BUT MY FATHER'S FORMER IRAQI BUSINESS PARTNER REMAINED IN CONTROL OF THE REPUBLIC OF IRAQ AND ITS PETROLEUM RESERVES.

Well, at least this part is true.

Oh god, I get these things EVERY DAY in my inbox. Sometimes three or four times. Some of them are genius pieces of writing actually. And all for nothing. Who actually writes them? Where do they come from?

I don't know...the language in this one is better than G. W. Bush's, but worse than that of his speechwriters. I'm not sending my tithes in yet...

Pretty well done, I'd say, except for the promise of some wonderful payoff for participating. Say, now that I think of it, that's true of the real version too...

In related news, we're now entering the Year of the Sheep. How appropriate.

Yes, I'm fully aware of that. 'these things' meaning 'things like these things' which doesn't quite sound the same.

Although your link answers my question. Now can you send your bank details as we agreed to I can forward on that $3 million?
