I highly suggest that before you send requested funds to said charity, that you first let me view, no fondle, the US monies and then calculate the best way to really reply to this e-mail. In the meantime, however, I shall require a small stipend in which to allow me to best live my frugal lifestyle as I make decisions that will change both your and my worlds. I shall get back to you in the morning.



Personally I love some of the links I see to the right of the e-mail screen on Google's Gmail - some funky things have popped up - based on the conversations.

Ahh, Spammmmmmm.

I'm still waiting for my compensation payment. It's been weeks, and I even sent in the $50 for express service.
