Jim, your cynical lack of faith in mankind leaves me shocked and appalled. I'll have you know that I just borrowed $25k to help out another poor Nigerian in a similar circumstance. I did it mostly out of the goodness of my heart, but frankly I expect a five MILLION (that's mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmillion -- WOW!) dollar payoff by the end of the week. But I guess that's the difference between us; I'm a trusting and guileless soul looking to do good in the world, so naturally good things come back to me a thousandfold.
I'll let you know when my bank account fattens up so you can rejoice with me in the great blessings that grow from my trusting, selfless nature. $tephen Jim Cobabe wrote: > > An interesting note in my mailbox today... > > Since I'm already independently wealthy, I have no interest in this > unique investment opportunity.
