What can I do with this? I’m as tired of writing the same response as you are of reading it. Frankly, my exasperation is beginning to show.
Don’t you get tired of using the same fucking email that every other Nigerian scammer is using over and over again? Seriously. I’ve built a whole site around ridiculing your kind ( http://www.infosprite.com/category/spam/ You’ll notice that the first in the category is the same email you’ve sent me from August 4th ). The least you could do is take a moment to try to come up with something different. I’ve grown so tired of seeing the same dying lady with the same dead husband, trying to give away the same fake money in the name of God. For the love of Jesus, can’t you come up with a gay guy dying of aids that wants to give his solid gold bars stolen from a pirate-themed restaurant in Key West to someone he doesn’t know? Anything! Just give me something to work with!
I very much hope that you consider trying to draft up something new. You’ve already proven that you’re not the sharpest crayon in the box by sending me this email but nonetheless, I’m praying that you try. Please keep my email address handy and send me a copy when you’ve finished it.
Who knows, maybe I’ll even send you all my money.
