CAN YOU PROVIDE A GOOD CURRENT ACCOUNT WHERE THIS MONEY WILL BE TRANSFERRED?


Yes, this just arrived at the Western blog email. Pretty impressive for a first piece of spam on an account. I suppose it is a sign of better things to come.

You should write back to that account with all sorts of questions about how they made the money and can you transfer it into African property instead. :)

BTW. I just started listening to the CD. The first song is tailor made for me words-wise... but I think it's the general sound I don't like. They scoop EVERYTHING. Gah. Although maybe that's just Brad Paisley. I'll have to listen to the rest to be sure.

I don't think that 30% is enough...I mean really what every happened to the old 60/40 split at least???

I was going to mention that song and predict that very reaction (If I can say so without sounding conceited). I didn't think you'd like his voice. I think you will like Collin Raye for his voice, though. I know I do.

60/40...yeah. You'd think they would have the sense to recognize a conservative blog as being full of smart people--or maybe they expect me to barter them up to 60/40...oh whatever.

Sounds like some of the spam I've gotten at my work email--usually they're from Nigeria. We don't sell anything to Nigerian customers because so much craziness coming out of that country.....and they don't give up either! :-/

Yes, I remember as much. Most of their phone numbers were bogus anyway... They order several thousand dollars worth of chess material--the numbers of each item never quite making sense--then the phone number doesn't even check...nothing wrong here.

I must say I have never gotten any spam mail like this one so it's interesting to hear that you have problems with these kinds of things from the chess house...It's not something I would have ever thought about. Interesting.
