The Economy May Be Glum For You

But things are definitely looking up for me, based on this email:

Dear Friend, Greetings! It's really disturbing and worrying that you will keep mum all these while. I can't get it; I've tried all your numbers without success. Your email doesn't seem to be working anymore, as there are always no responses to my mails. What could be happening please?.

It’s been over one month that the VISA ATM CARD of (USD$750,000.00) was Loaded in your favor and you can Withdraw your money in any ATM Cash Point Machine Worldwide and the Maximum you can Withdraw daily is (USD$1,000.00). Since I did not hear from you, I went and deposited the ATM CARD Package with Access Trust Delivery Company Accra, Ghana before I traveled UK for a year Course that will end on the 6th November, 2009.

You need to contact the Access Trust Delivery Company and request for the immediate deliver of your package. For your information, I have paid for the Dispatching, Insurance and Clearance Certificate charges of the ATM CARD showing that it is not a Drug Money or to sponsor Terrorism.

Thus, quickly contact the Access Trust Express Courier Company for the delivery of the ATM CARD Package with this information bellow.

Access Trust Express Courier Co. Ltd.
Contact Person: Mr. James Michael
Position: Dir. Foreign Delivery Department.
# 117 Sir Arku Korsah Street, Roman Ridge,
P.O. Box, AD237, Greater Accra Region of Ghana.
E-Mail: accesstrustexpresscouriercoltd@gmail.com

Make sure that you provide them with your current delivery details such as your (Full Name, Office or Residence Address and Direct Call Number) to avoid any mistake on the delivery. Try to contact them once you receive this massage for their immediate action. And notify me through (+44- 703-199-5860) once you receive your VISA ATM CARD as I might not be contacting you soon because I am very busy with my course here in the UK.

As a matter of fact, you must contact the above Company by indicating the following Code (CZ-61-42-EX) as the rightful beneficiary of the ATM CARD Package of (USD$750,000.00) to enable them attend to you and deliver the ATM CARD Package to you as they have the code in their record.

Take care and remain Blessed.

Yours really,

Mr. Emmanuel Annan.

Now you'll pardon me if I'm offline for a while as I must rush to take advantage of this most generous offer. It will be a truly wondrous holiday season at the Bingley household now!

Hey, can I borrow $10,000? Interest free?

Call me crazy, but if I was a Ghanian with an extra $750 million in some bank account, I would have a few rules:

2. Extend my one-year course indefinitely, and keep going until I hit the States.
3. Avoid the email as a means of trying to give away any portion of the money. (Seriously, what's wrong with knocking on some random doors, or mailing a cashier's check, or just handing out envelopes with hundreds in them?)

Actually, I'm surprised that Mr. Annan didn't send you a email saying that he was bailing out the auto industry or something.

"but if I was a Ghanian with an extra $750 million in some bank account"

You'd be the new Emperor of Ghana and hit up the U.S. for foreign aid (that's what I'd probably do anyway.)

Please forward this e-mail to Mayor Nutter; Philly could really benefit from such a windfall, apparently.

It's only 750 THOUSAND, not million. Even relatives of ousted West African government officials are feeling the credit crunch these days.

Heh. That looked like a comma instead of a decimal, and my brain filled in the rest. Lucky for me I didn't sign up. Then again, can I be trusted if I can't even read?
