I'm annoyed by these e-mails that I receive, practically everyday. I saw a report on TV about these people in foreign countries who are sending these e-mails.
Now, my question is, who are these fricking-totally-dumb-Americans who actually respond to these bogus e-mails? Sadly, It is many older people who are taken advantage of, giving away their life savings. So, my question is who are these older-fricking-totally-dumb-Americans-who-give-away-their-life-savings?
I wanna meet one ;-)
And now for your reading pleasures - the e-mail...
