Good one, Istanbul_Tea .

Their first reply and web site are duplicates of the earlier Akron-Bike scam. And I was expecting the old "our agent ows us USD 5000 so please just send us the USD 4000 balance by Western Union after you receive our agent's check..." Apparently another class has recently graduated from the Internet Scam University.

To err is human. To moo is bovine.

Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?
