    wow, I’d be hard pressed to try and think of a more terribly worded document. This is just pitiful. I want to give them money just for feeling bad for them, maybe they could get a better education…

    That is funny. One of the Dateline or 20-20 type shows investigated the foreign scammers and showed it several weeks ago. I couldn’t believe how people fall for these scams.
