    How 'bout some swampland in Florida!

    I'll have to wait for another one, but equally as stupid are the ones that start out with, "I blame you for this. You have no one to blame but yourself".

    Like I'm gonna open and Email that starts off by criticizing me? And there are others, with absolutely the wrong name, like "Mary Ford". At least get my name right!

    I get those all the time. I also have people messaging me on msn or yahoo telling me that they're in trouble in Nigeria and need my help and that they will give me a million dollars if I transfer their 15 million dollars into my account. Yada yada yada....
    Great Googly Moogly!

    It's from "NIGERIA", it mentions "MR. PRESIDENT", the "FBI", and "HOMELAND SECURITY", it must be real! It even specifically says, "so you have absolutely nothing to be afraid of and due the previous scam and fraud act from imposters in our country..."

    See, you have nothing to fear and these guys aren't the scammers, the other guys (the "imposters"... geesh they could spell it right at least. LOL) are.

    I can't believe you can't see how legit this is!
