Why don't you send him bank details of an account that's permanently in overdraught and see if he deposits the dosh.
What can you lose?

Hi guys,
Got my own version tonight offering 19% of
$35,000,000. Is there a protocol for this type of stupidity? For example, our police cannot anything as its all from overseas, in my case Zaire. Our Government WON`T do anything for fear of upsetting someone so all we`re left with is to ignore it. Answer it at your peril, even with an account that`s permanently in the red like buddiebuoys. They`ll then know they have a good email address and you`ll have them coming out of the woodwork. It`d still be nice to do something about them.

however, I ,for one , could find very good use for all that money:)

have not received mine yet, and know exactly what to do with it if/when it does get to be my turn:)

end, when you get the email, just send them £4,000 it will save a lot of time and you will still get nuffink!!

  end 23:55 31 Aug 2004

"morning Mr Bank Manager..Its like this..."
