I was thinking maybe if I doubled it I would get a good citizen award, then I could give them some of the 10 mil just for good measure cause I'm sure it's legit. Then motorcycles for all. Weeeeeee!!!!

On the serious side I hate this new scare tactic of these because I know there are some people out there who could be taken in by this, just because they are naive, doesn't mean they should lose money.

Interesting take on the old scam. I wonder how many people will fall for it.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

I would lead them on and let them think I'm going to pay. Then tell them I paid and they should look in their account

The FBI doesn't send email. Hell, they don't even knock.

I'd love to see a cost-based system (processing cost, not monetary) implemented for SMTP.
