I am so excited to be a beneficiary. After I fill out the form, I'll probably just have to send them my credit card info just to prove to them that I am who I say I am, but then - yippee - the money will start rolling in!

Wow, I'm so happy for you! You deserve the money, really. In fact, I will send you some too, but you must also send me your credit card info so I can guarantee your identity. Thanks! ;)

Over the years I've sold Burger King coupons to a guy in Baltimore with a yahoo.hk address (really) so I know people can have .hk addresses and be legit.

I'm in the UK and although Leatherhead is a real place in Surrey it was the Hong Kong e-mail address that really sets alarm bells ringing. Not too sure that is a correct UK phone no. either - not that I imagine you were going to phone them!!
