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
