I've heard that there are all kinds of great medications out there for enlarging/shrinking/activating/de-activating various parts of your body. People like Romerius Q. Abecedarian and Esther G. Hippocampus swear they work!

Also, there seem to be an extraordinarily large number of unselfish vendors offering genuine Rolexxes and Luis Viuttion bags below cost.

When I get mail like that... I edit it and send it back, thanking them for using our editing services. I ask them how they heard of us and if anyone recommended me to them... Of course I send them a bill and suggest that they find a word processing program that would help cut down on the editing expense..

To make it worse, I think I get one of these about every couple of weeks. Is there something about me that says "I'm gullible" I don't know.

Hell, you gotta love the way they phrasologize their sentences.

I never get these, (thank God) but I read about them all the time.

I think they ought to start holding Yahoo, Hotmail, Comcast, etc. responsible for all these and make 'em pay for real. I bet then they'd crack down on the scammers somehow.
