    Yeah, I figured it had to be some hype like that...so I didn't even read the first post. Maybe they banned the guy.

    I for one am not a believer. I have been honest since day one and have only told one lie in my entire life.

    In fact, I have been entrusted by a key politician figure who runs a multibillion dollar business in S. Africa. Due to the unstable and corrupt government he has been forced to withdraw all his money in single dollar USD bills.

    He is looking for a safe place to keep it, and if you provide me with an address I can have him start sending you the money one dollar at a time every day till it is entirely in your possession. We will entrust that you keep an eye on it till we find a better place. Of course feel free to use some of it for living expenses as a return favor. Interested?
    HaHa. That is great. Thanks for the laugh.

    thank you for the info!
    i would have liked the story to be true (and, well, the bet to be offered to me...)

    i think i would have believed him if he had said 1k. 10k is just too much... i'm not that easy to fool... for your African money, no problem here is my bank account# and pin 4500800069874561 x1234. glad to help you.

    cheers,
    jc
