It looks like a winner for someone.
Hey, I've just created a new joke - What's the difference between IRS spam and the real IRS? None - they both screw you.
Ha, but one should yeild better government.
Cartledge, you've got that right. I'm wondering how many people may fall for this.
WS, like that comparison but only if it causes the Feds to dump this dumb idea. (See the linked post).
PoP, me too.
Hmmm...how about "Kvatchadamus"?
Mr. Satan! I knew I smelled your sulpherous stench when this came in.
D.K., indeed. Whatever happened to the really BIG scam? I can't tell you how many rich foreign contractors have died on the main highway near Lagos.
i also got "haloscan" to save my commenters from having to solve the "wond verification riddle" which took me 4 cracks to break this time.
I agree: At least the Nigerian scam nets you millions or at least thousands. Who gets taken in by a paltry $63.80?
