Rumble: I have come into the possession of $800 billion...

Washington DC, October 4th 2008.


This email may come as a surprise to you, but I need the assistance of someone with trust and discretion and I know that I can rely on you. I need to ask you to support an urgent secret business relationship with a transfer of funds of great magnitude.

I am the head of the Treasury Department of the Republic of America. Due to a crisis in my country, I have the opportunity to transfer US$800 billion. If you would assist me in this transfer, it would be most profitable to you. This transaction is 100% safe.

This is a matter of great urgency, as our national credit institutes have proven to be unreliable. We cannot directly transfer these funds in the names of our close friends because their accounts are already full. My family lawyer advised me that I should look for a reliable and trustworthy person who will act as a next of kin so the funds can be transferred.

Please reply with all of your bank and investment accounts' details, those of your children, grandchildren, brothers and sisters, and their children's children so that we may transfer your commission for this transaction.

Yours Faithfully,
Henry Paulson
U.S. Secretary of the Treasury

Dear Paul,

You know you remind me so much of my Nigerian cousin TakeTake Itall - are you by chance related?

I do feel terrible for you and would dearly love to help you with your situation but alas I am currently focused on my own plight where my 401K pension has vanished into thick smog and my stock investments are to be recycled for toilet paper after last Fridays bill passed.

I think I may be of some assistance however. I know a broker from Saudi Arabia who currently resides in Pakistan who is in dire need of funds and he has many children, grandchildren, brothers and sisters, and their children's children who can assist you. He can be reached at this address:

Mr Osama bin Laden
c/o Taliban Head Honcho #1
Random Cave
Northern Pakistan

Hope this helps and rememember - Have a nice day!
