Nothing says trustworthiness with your personal financial information like someone Who Uses A Capital Letter Many Many Times In A Sentence For No Reason. I Just Wish I Could Go To Burkina Faso Directly And Just Help Out.


I hope you never fall for this kind of stuff kids. One of Michigan's County Treasurers wasn't this bright. Maybe if he's lucky he'll get to a Phase I environmental post after he's out of the joint. I think that makes him a garbage guy. But at least he'll only have to work one day a week. Now make sure you check out that internetwebsite. It's all one word just like Racearoundtheworld.

Man, these scams are SO 2002. Or something...

I can't imagine anyone except 90-year-olds who would fall for stuff like this, but I guess it happens. How come all these scams involve Africa?

It's because they don't have any laws over there. It seems like you can get away with anything in Africa.
