  2. So you sent the details they wanted? You'll be good for a loan then.
     
  3. I got socks again this year, what did you get?
     
  4. Nice twist.

    Someone else is already nearly in receipt... I must ACT NOW!!!

    I do like reading about numb skulls taken in by this sort of stuff. They always say 'it seemed so real'.
     
  5. Tell them to let the woman in Arizona have the money and I'll get my Sister to pop round and collect it, she will have room for the money in her "purse" after she's used her Smith & Wesson to identify herself......
     
  6. Seems by the efforts I get sent the infininte number of monkeys with typewriters still have some way to go before they complete those works of Shakespeare...
     
  7. That'll never fucking happen.
     
  8. Here's the thing though, since they continue to push these scams out it can be assumed they get a bite from some of the bait they put out...there must be some pretty thick people out there!
     
  9. I got my first ever 419 letter recently, and was extremely surprised that it actually WAS a letter, rather than an email. Fuck knows where they got my address from, but I suppose online shopping/ebay is a good bet.

    On the plus side, my son has got a new Spanish stamp for his collection....
     
  10. Boring,,,,I got a 'Yankee Candle' and a T Shirt that says Afghan Comandoes on it along with a nice ANA flag embossed on the sleeve,,,,

    NB not my spelling of commandos.....
     
  11. Think I got one of them awhile back, address was Balboa if I recall correctly.
     
  12. I had a 419 e-mail over christmas that was entirely in fucking french!
