Looks legit to me!!!

I had the same thing happen a while back. I had 944,000 coming to me. I sent them my bank account and social security numbers right away!!

I'm waiting to hear back from them now. I need to send them my new account number because in the midst of my good fortune some idiot wiped out my account and had some credit cards made in my name.

As soon as I hear back from them and give them my new information I'm going to have that safe room built!!

I don't like giving out my SS number. Can I just mail you some finger prints, dental records, and a blood sample instead?

We got one with an FBI letterhead, stating that a box of money came through customs, and if we acquired the proper certificate, it was ours. If not, we'd be charged with money laundering.

It's like they aren't even trying anymore.....

They keep giving out these cheques because so many of us suspicous Americans never respond to these obvious windfall deals. Man I wish I would get one of these sweet e-mails!
