Subject: URGENT BUSINESS RELATIONSHIP

DEAR AMERICAN:

I NEED TO ASK YOU TO SUPPORT AN URGENT SECRET BUSINESS RELATIONSHIP WITH A
TRANSFER OF FUNDS OF GREAT MAGNITUDE.

I AM MINISTRY OF THE TREASURY OF THE REPUBLIC OF AMERICA. MY COUNTRY HAS HAD
CRISIS THAT HAS CAUSED THE NEED FOR LARGE TRANSFER OF FUNDS OF 800 BILLION
DOLLARS US. IF YOU WOULD ASSIST ME IN THIS TRANSFER, IT WOULD BE MOST
PROFITABLE TO YOU.

I AM WORKING WITH MR. PHIL GRAM, LOBBYIST FOR UBS, WHO WILL BE MY REPLACEMENT AS
MINISTRY OF THE TREASURY IN JANUARY. AS A SENATOR, YOU MAY KNOW HIM AS THE
LEADER OF THE AMERICAN BANKING DEREGULATION MOVEMENT IN THE 1990S. THIS
TRANSACTIN IS 100% SAFE.

THIS IS A MATTER OF GREAT URGENCY. WE NEED A BLANK CHECK. WE NEED THE FUNDS AS
QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE. WE CANNOT DIRECTLY TRANSFER THESE FUNDS IN THE NAMES OF
OUR CLOSE FRIENDS BECAUSE WE ARE CONSTANTLY UNDER SURVEILLANCE. 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 ACCOUNT, IRA AND COLLEGE FUND ACCOUNT NUMBERS
AND THOSE OF YOUR CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN TO WALLSTREETBAILOUT@TREASURY.GOV
SO THAT WE MAY TRANSFER YOUR COMMISSION FOR THIS TRANSACTION. AFTER I RECEIVE
THAT INFORMATION, I WILL RESPOND WITH DETAILED INFORMATION ABOUT SAFEGUARDS
THAT WILL BE USED TO PROTECT THE FUNDS.

YOURS FAITHFULLY MINISTER OF TREASURY PAULSON

  1. I had to laugh when I read that!!! The old Nigerian email scam? LOL

    Another thing that I find amusing the past few weeks is that a few months ago Ron Paul couldn’t buy and face time on the Fox/CNN/MSNBC “news” shows…Now, they are all clamoring for him to appear since he was the only candidate that understands even the basic concepts of Keynesian economics and how it will destroy the US economy…

  2. Oh my, Keynesian economics- have you been talking to my boyfriend?!?!

    In our house, its not amusing that Ron Paul was ignored before- its a travesty of justice or something like that..

  3. LOL…An MBA and 20 years in the industry will do it to ya’…So I take it your BF is a fan of Rothbard and von Mises?

    My sarcasm weeps heavily…Yep…I voted for Ron Paul way back in 1988…And in the 2008 primary…Still have one of his t-shirts from way back: Personal Freedon; Individual Responsibility…

    A sad state of affairs…
