I get something along those lines on a weekly basis. I just delete them. Should I forward the emails to you so that you can mess with them?

I can think of like 100 better things to do, I mean, you got the computer right there, and there is so much porn that is just a click away!

I was seriously considering something more offensive, but that they wouldnt know, like William J. Simmons (former KKK wizard) or something, just to see if they catch on.

No offense intended to anyone on here of course, just the first thing that came to mind

1. Dr. William Joseph Simmons (the name that is the email header is fake, im sure you can understand that a man of my power has to hide his identity)
2. Sadly, they've taken my phone away for bad leadership ....
3. Ku Klux Klan, Grand Wizard, Atlanta, Georgia
4. My bank account will be on behalf of our "cultural movement"
5. I am the Ku Klux Klan - Grand Wizard! 47 years old, not married.
6. I'll fax a copy of the license to you as soon as you get me your fax number.

As far as the bank information goes, Seasame Street told me to never send my bank details or credit card information in an email ... so if youd just give me your contact information (fax number, home number) ill get that out to you as soon as possible.

Thanks,

William Simmons

P.S. Please hurry, grandma could be gone any day...

I've got hundreds of these emails. Its quite funny the scams they think of. A friend of mine took it to another level, and responded and played with the guy. Actually went on for a couple months. We've gotten real checks sent in for 20 million (but were forged). Its quite comical. If they worked this hard on a serious job they'd make much more.

I say the BEST way to mess withthem is make them spend money of their own to get scammed. Say that you need to meet them in person to gve them the cash...that way they fly out for nothing

one of the dateline or 20/20 type shows did that

Yup, did that once, told them to come out, bring the package (box with 20 million) and we'll meet in Chicago, and exchange items. They called from NY, and said, we have everything send the check and we'll send the package. Told them we could do that, they need to come here..they never did.

My Reply to the last!

Dr. Agogogogoh,

I dont think you understand, my name IS NOT JAKE RICHARD! Thats my secret spy identity! My real name is Dr. William Joseph Simmons aka John Jacob Jingleheimerschmidt!!! I dont want this huge check to be in the wrong name!!!!

I dont see how lent has anything to do with the bank, according to wikipidia, here is the definition of lent....



In Western Christianity, Lent is the period before the Christian holy day of Easter. Eastern Christianity calls this period Great Lent, to distinguish it from the Winter Lent or Advent that precedes Christmas (though in Greek, the two periods are the "Great Fast" and the "Nativity Fast"). The rest of this article will discuss Lent as it is understood and practiced in Western Christianity, except when as noted.

It covers the forty days before Easter, not including Sundays. The Wednesday beginning Lent is known as Ash Wednesday. The dating of Easter, which determines that of Lent, is discussed elsewhere. Roughly speaking, Lent starts near the end of Winter in the northern hemisphere and ends near the beginning of Spring. The earliest Lent can begin is on February 4 and the latest it can end is April 24 (if Easter Sunday should occur on April 25).



See what i mean? It really doesnt seem to have anything to do with banking at all, but if you insist on discussing lent, ill make sure to read the article and be well informed to make it a lively discussion! Ill do anything it takes to make sure you are happy...

Ill get the fax out to you with the information as soon as possible...

Looking forward to your response...
