It's All In The Execution
A friend received this, and rather than poopcan it like any reasoned, rational person, she did one better: she thought of me.
I'm not sure how I should take that.
But I did take this. And here's how it went. We'll start by meeting Jim McCullar, or a Third World piss poor facsimile of same. And meet his opening scambit:
I am Mr Jim McCullar I am a native of Idaho, United State Of America, Carolyn my wife and I have decided to make sure this is put on the internet for the world to see as you could see from the web page sent to you in our first mail, I may not know you, but I believe if you receive my first email and respond back meaning you were chosen by God to receive my donation of [$2,000,000.00 USD] you must be a God fearing individual, I am a Christian and I believe that Good things happens to good people like you who had the mind to respond back to my mail.
I am Mr Jim McCullar the mega winner of $190 Million Dollars Jackpot in Washington, WATCH US NOW:http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=tVQaQJGv9lE
You see after taken care of the needs of our immediate family members, we decided to donate the remaining of the fund to other individuals around the world in need, the local fire department, the Red Cross, Haiti, hospitals and some other organizations in Asia and Europe that fight cancer, I would love to introduce my self more and also show you picture of me and my family but firstly I want to hear from you if my gift of [$2,000,000.00 USD] is accepted by you before I proceed. Send me the below details to show that you accept my gift.
Thank you for accepting our offer, we are indeed grateful We anticipate your earliest response.
I select my alter-Igor -- Jack N. Ewehoff -- to be the lucky respondent and he does so. To Jim McCullar's almost glee.
It must be pretty slow around that particular fly-infested internet café.
Anyway, from Jim I move on to being contacted by Jim's bank, the Hsbc Bank in the UK. And here's how that began:
