Though I am very rich, I was never generous, I was always hostile to people and only focused on my business as that was the only thing I cared for. But now I regret all this as I now know that there is more to life than just wanting to have or make all the money in the world.

    I remember the dying Nigerian and China company that claims you've won millions but must pay $$$$$ in deposit to get it. Too obvious of a lame plot.
    If it's so private, why is he sending this out as spam + he'd rather trust a random total stranger from a random country???
    Try posting to his email, chances are, he'll ask u to send thousands as a 'deposit' beforehand.
    To add to that, algeria in comparison to malaysia is a different league of country. He reminds me of angmo thinking Taiwan is the same as Thailand.

    Dear Shadak Shari,

    Thanks for your kindness and trust.

    As collecting and dispatching $7,000,000 is no easy task for someone like me who deals only with $7 on a daily basis, I would like to keep $1,000,000 as a service and stress fees. I think you could understand the risk I will be taking on your behalf. I might be robbed, kidnapped or killed walking out of the bank with the money.

    I am suffering from a medical condition called IFFEPP (itchy fingers for expensive photographic products). Currently there is no known cure for it. I hope the $1,000,000 will in some way help to treat such ailment with D1s, L lenses, fancy studio probes powerful enough to light half of the sky etc.

    God be with you too.

    Sion

    ahhaha Sion, thats a great reply! Last year I got this guy who was willing to pay me a HUGE amount of money for a guitar i was selling... valued at SGD$1300, he was willing to pay USD$5000!!! He even sent a cheque! (I still have it). Turns out the cheque was a fraud - it bounced. He kept emailing and asking me to send the guitar out before the cheque cleared... im lucky man! I didnt the guitar is now proudly owned by a nice guy.
