Dear Most Excellent Friend, [More:]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 USD. If you would assist me in this transfer, it would be
most profitable to you.

I am working with Mr. Phil Gramm, lobbyist for UBS, who (God Willing)
will be my replacement as Ministry of the Treasury in January. As a
former U.S. congressional leader and the architect of the PALIN /
McCain Financial Doctrine, you may know him as the Leader of the
American banking deregulation movement in the 1990s. As such, you can
be assured that this transaction is 100% safe.

This is matter of great urgency. 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 trusted counsellors 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 spouse 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,
Henry Paulson
Minister of Treasury
Department of the Treasury
1500 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
Washington, D.C. 20220

If we had a favorites system, I would favorite this thread.

Yes, I would.

But then I'm generally in favor of regulation.
