When Patrick Henry E-mails

Wow, I must say: I'm truly honoured to have been chosen as the recipient of an e-mail from one of Virginia's greatest heroes. Who knew that Patrick Henry moved back to England and became an official Q.C.:

Greetings,

I am Barrister. Patrick Henry. I am reaching you to handle an investment portfolio.

I am reaching you to assist in repatriating the funds and property left behind by my late client before it will be confiscated by government and declared unserviceable by the bank where the huge deposits were lodged.

He died intestate and every attempt to trace any member of his family has proved abortive and unsuccessful.

Do note that who you are does not matter and you will be better informed when I hear from you.

I want you to respond by sending:

1. Your full names
2. Tel & fax numbers
3. Complete Address

Send the above information and I will furnish you with more information about the estate and process of transfer to you.

Yours Faithfully,

Barrister Patrick Henry ESQ.
United Kingdom .

N.B:
Please respond with your full names, address, phone and fax numbers for the immediate start up of this transaction. Do note that who you are does not matter and you will be better informed when I hear from you.

La vraie guerre inutile vient d'Amérique, pas de France ! Américains de cochon !

Mais le français même ne saurait pas où commencer s'ils étaient dans une guerre.

Vous êtes idiot Américain. Ne pas tenter de diffamer le nom de France. Cochon américain.

Chiens américains idiots de porc ! Votre guerre est injuste ! La mort aux infidèles ! Maintenant, où est mon béret et cigarette, je suis le fatigué.

Vous Français de pensée. Si vous me donnez votre jour de naissance, votre nom de votre mère et de la chaussure de votre fille calibre - je peux vous faire $5.000. Si non, j'enterrerai la révolution française. L'Amérique en vie longue!

Ummm... Polly vue cracker?


Holy crap. What does this story have to do with French speaking people anyway!?!?!

I know UK is going Muslim (bad) but I didn't know it was also going French (much worse). Boy, when they go down the tubes, they really go DOWN the tubes.

I get about 2 a day of those emails. Funny. I get just about the same regarding my Craig's List items that I put up for sale. They want to send me a check for $3000 over the price of my item if I will give some of that money to their shipper so they can ship my item oversees to their son/grandson/father who is working in an embassy/hospital/university.

One dude wrote back and forth with me about half-dozen times. I kept asking personal questions to clarify his story. He kept changing it. I kept asking why he can't send me cash. He said his boss does not have a checking account. I asked him how his boss pays his bills. It was fun.

Another email wanted to give me 3500 for my 500 tv and ship it to nigeria. I asked why he doesnt buy tv over in nigeria and save the 3000. Email then said that the purchase is only to buy tv and ship it to his house to be there when he gets back from nigeria. I asked why you dont just save your money and then buy your tv when you get home. no reply.

I am just dumbfounded that there are so many stupid genetically-inferior people out there who fall for this. If this was 500 years ago, these people would have been killed off by the wildlife as they decided to walk out in the woods at night unarmed thinking nothing bad could happen to them.

I get these scam letters often. I fell for one of their scams and it cost me my dignity and respect to a fine Bank.Once you get scammed you will not fall for any of their e-mail they scam you from finding a job for you to you have won a card from wal-mart, do not believe any of your e-mail unless you have semt an e-mail to them yourself. An if you are like me you don't inquire to only what you are interested in. an normally when you inquire their will be a symbol or you will know that you inquired to them. Don't fall for anymore scams in fact before responding type in that title on the e-mail before opening it, and you will find out if its a scam most of the time. Good Luck and don't ever be fool again.
