Henry Paulson proposal as Nigerian spam: This is a matter of great urgence. We need a immediate blank cheque.
I was remarking to my husband over breakfast this morning how I regularly received junk mail and spam that was more credible that Paulson's proposal for our economic salvation. Well, this has occurred to others as well. Americablog has a really delicious rendition of the Paulson proposal as Nigerian spam:
Please note that this transaction is 100% safe and we hope to commence the transfer latest seven (7) banking days from the date of the receipt of the following information: all of your bank account, IRA and college fund account numbers and those of your children and grandchildren to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we may transfer your commission for this transaction. This way we will use your country's name to apply for payment in your name. After I receive that information, I will respond with detailed information about safeguards that will be used to protect the funds.
As seen on TV! A deal like this does not come along every day! Act now without blinking!
