Meet the winner of the GRAND UNIVERSAL PROMO they don't confine themselves to one email address. This one is good! I did a quick google of "grand universal promo" and came up with other blogger's documentaries of having fun with these guys by replying and seeing how long they can string it along--not a recommended pastime, in case you were wondering but it's fun to read about.

This is absolutely incredible Mark. Such blessings have been pouring into your inbox of late. Don't hesitate in replying to them, I dare say such a great offer might not last for long.
Actually a few months ago I was sent a message from a poor (emotionally that is, not monetarily) widow from Nigeria who needed somebody trustworthy to keep money for her son until he came of age. I replied immediately (well, after a brief delay to setup an account specifically for this good samaritan cause). Quite abruptly she requested a number of things from me such as telephone numbers and bank account numbers etc. I thought she moved on to business rather quickly, but I suppose we each have our own grieving process. I of course provided the good lady with the information but it does seem that I made some mistakes with a few of the numbers. She didn't email back for a while and when I sent another to ask if there was anyway I could still assist her and her son she did not reply....poor (again, not monetarily speaking of course) lady, such a dreary sad life she must lead indeed.

To be honest I get so much of this stuff if there were actually someone I knew living in Nigeria I would never know, I'd delete their e-mail without thinking about it.

I saw your comment on patty-jo's site.

If you're serious about that site redesign just shoot me an e-mail and we can work something out. We're almost ready to roll with the company site. There's just some tweaking that needs done and we'll be nice and pretty over at

We're taking orders now at around half price, depending on the service, so let us know what you need.
