Suhweet! a tax refund! and I have not even done my taxes yet. I usually leave those right up until midnight of the last day. too cool.

I am really happy to see that the government has outsourced some things like refunds. Flipping that over to the UK at first seemed strange, because I thought costs where higher there than in the colonies. No matter, I am sure you have done due diligence in selecting this company as an outsourced service provider, and I for one, Salute the prudent way that you are managing my money. In fact, I bet the reason that you found the $109 was because of this outsourcing. Excellent.

Do you do direct deposit? Your preference you say? There, even more examples of a well run government. You really do think of the customer first.

Imported Bricks from Europe. Clearly Superior!

Raven Scourt
For the management

Oh thank you! You can't believe what an opportune time this has come at. I am in a bit of a rough spot what with the so-called sub prime crisis. it was such a good idea, and it sure made the housing boom continue for a few more years. But now, we have some extra bills to pay, some larger than others. The chance to make some extra money each month, with little or no work, sounds perfect for me.

Now, this must be some kind of incredible business that you have here. If you are shipping bricks from europe, they must be light! You know that bricks are cheap here, right? So when you add in your shipping costs, the bricks must be very cost effective to make. Hey, maybe its because these are special bricks, and they sell for a lot of money. Wink Wink Nudge Nudge. hehehe. Ahem. I mean, you would have to be thick as one to not get that. I just haven't figured out what illegal substance "plywood" is. I just can't keep up with the slang anymore.

I note that you might be moving as much as $2 million worth of "product" in a month, and if we did that much business, then I would be entitled $20,000 for that month. ....Aaaawwesome.... Good "plywood" down at Lowes is $50/sheet. that's a lot of plywood. Wink Wink.

I'm kind of embarassed to ask this, but do you think your clients wouldn't prefer to deal in cash? I mean, they probably don't want any way to track what they are building, with all the brick and blocks and fixings. Fedex can deliver next day, so quick turnaround. Umm yeah, because I can't really open a chequing account any more. pending fraud charges. silly thing. Selling Mortgages is not fraud! Even when they are jobless and credit-free........

But were still on for the job, right. Call me....

My Name is Mrs.Christine Cosby I am a dying woman who had decided to donate what I have to you. I am 61 years old and was diagnosed for cancer and stroke about 3 years ago,immediately after the death of my husband Mr Matthew Cosby who had left me everything he worked for.

I have been touched by God to donate from what I have inherited from my late husband(Matthew Cosby) to the you for the good work of God,rather than allow my relatives to use my husband's hard earned funds ungodly.I have asked God to forgive me all my sins and i believe he has because He is a merciful God. I will be going in for an operation,and i pray that i survive the operation.

I have decided to will donate the sum of USD$8.5Million to you for the good work of the lord, and to help the motherless,less privileged and also for the assistance of the widows.

At the moment I cannot take any telephone calls, due to the fact that myrelatives are around me and i have been restricted by my doctor from taking telephone calls because i deserve all thee rest i can get.Presently,I have informed my lawyer about my decision in WILLING this fund to you.

I wish you all the best and may the good Lord bless you abundantly, and please use the funds well and always extend the good work to others.Kindly Contact my Family lawyer Mrs Marianne Perkins through this Contact and Private email address

NB: I will appreciate your utmost confidentiality in this matter until the task is accomplished,as I don't want anything that will Jeopardize my last wish, due to the fact that i do not want relatives or family members who are unbeleivers standing in the way of my last wish.


Christine Cosby

Well, Mrs Cosby, sorry to hear about the stroke and the cancer, what a blow coming right after the loss of your dear husband and all. But such a good man and prudent investor to leave such as sum as this.

Of course, your relatives all know that you're nuts, off your rocker. But you clever girl, you got your lawyer involved. And a prestigious law firm that uses hotmail for their email. Thats best for those very confidential matters, to know that they treat it that carefully. And given that you are of sound mind and body (the stroke and cancer are not affecting your decision making in the least) I am sure that your concerned relatives won't try to challenge it in court.

Its too bad they won't let you take calls, as I would have loved to find out how you decided that I would be right for this task. Perhaps its all the charitable work that I am doing right now that brought you to me. Don't worry, as per your wishes, I will keep this matter in in the utmost of confidence. Screw the unbelievers!

Now, as I understand how wills work, you have to die first, the needs of the estate (lawyer fees, transfer fees) are taken off the top, and then rest is doled out. So you go ahead and do your part, and then have your lawyer drop me another email after this has all been through the courts, apealled and re-appealed. I can then spend my retirement doling out your money (or NOT!) in 10 to 20 years. Looking forward to it, and if you can sneak past the relatives, then dear, please do give us a call, we would so love to hear your voice.
