I received this word document via email. Looks like "I'm in the money," so I probably won't be frequenting this forum in the future. I'll be too busy with travel, leisure and whatever people do with $800,000 of play money.
Roger Karlsson, maybe you could save me the $220 fee and just pick it up from Mr. Green in Stockholm? Keep the iPad and iPhone included for your trouble, as I already have one of each.

So as to be helpful, and thinking that you might buy dinner when we meet in Minnesota, I went ahead and answered the questions for you with your information and sent it direct to Kelvin. All you need do is send the $220.00 to Kelvin and you are good to go....
As you know, I am always eager to help a friend.
With friends like you.............
Rob Heyen: I have to tell you that I have this one beat. I was the lucky winner of 15 Million and all I needed to do is send $39 USD to somewhere and that would be all that is needed.
I would not be contacted again for more money. Sorry that I declined it, as I could be on vacation.
We could be bidding at the Scottsdale auctions next winter........... All for only 39 bucks.
These kind of posts are almost as entertaining as an old Johnny Carson skit.
Ouch, they're really everywhere now - or claims to be, maybe the Nigerian prince scheme doesn't work so well anymore
We all know there's no "scam" in Scandinavia......
I have great news.
Kelvin sent me a note confirming that he had received the info I sent for you. All he needed to proceed was your social security number. So, not wanting to hold things up I promptly sent it to him. You should be getting your windfall any day now.
Boy it actually took someone a lot of work to assemble that long letter and to mold all of that BS into something that actually is half way grammatically correct. Usually the grammar or lack of it is very obvious. One for sure give away that it is a scam is that the amount is wrong. The guy writing this has already taken money intended for the recipient since the original amount was 1,800,000.00 so BEWARE and do ask for an explanation of the missing $1M before you go any further since I think this guy clearly is not honest.
If your car could travel at the speed of light, would your headlights work?
I would say yes, The head light beam would be doing 186K/SECOND plus the vehicle speed. The tail lamp beam would be minus the vehicle speed.
You sure would want to know that your brakes worked well.
Of course your headlights would work. You could
see the guy crossing the road ahead but he could
not see you. Could be fun. And your dash clock
would need to be reset to the local time when you stopped. The last thing is that you could park in a garage that was only 4 feet long.
Now the question....could people you saw in front of the car see your tail lamp before you
Rob, after taxes you could still buy a Boss 9
and hit that 70 mph eventually.
We're getting a little off topic. This thread was about totally worthless scams..........
(I'll get my 70)
