I received an email a few minutes ago, glanced at the first line and hit delete. Very common practice for many of us I’m sure. But then I suddenly laughed and went to the deleted items to retrieve it.
You know the emails; someone, usually from somewhere afar, they have this load of money that for some reason they can’t access unless you help them out, and in return you’ll receive a wad.
Well, that was one of those emails, and in it, I can get 35% of the bounty.. Anyway, this particular one tickled me.
I’ll only paste the first lines.. cause that’s the best part..
My name is Col. Thomson Ryan, a US Army serving in the 3rd Infantry Division in Iraq. I want you to read this mail carefully and understand it. In 2003, my men and I found over $900 million in Saddam Hussein’s hideout in Baghdad……
Is it just me? Or does that crack you up?!
