What if I suddenly needed to have my penis enlarged?
I have "won" so many times that it makes my old head spin. Wow! All that money and just waiting on me. I do wonder however why they keep it up when year after year I don't respond. The numbers of these are growing too, I used to get primaily the Nigerian type ones, now I am fortunate enough to get all of them, they fill my mail.

I do want to ask one more question. When I first started using my computer for sweeping we got offer after offer to get "our" penis' made larger. While I personally do not need a larger one, as I do not have one at all, I leave that to my husband by the way, what would we do if we suddenly needed to have this proceedure done? Funny how things come and go is it not?

Some talk of hardship and suffering trying to pull at your heart strings. Simply put, if they had that much money they would not need a disabled guy from Tennessee to help them now would they?
Hi Everybody,

Did you know that there is a government agency dedicated to investigating and catching those perpetuating the Nigerian scam emails?

Forward the offending emails to: 419.fcd@usss.treas.gov

I discovered this while surfing winzy one day looking for other spamcop type websites.

If you have some extra time check out www.419eater.com The folks there have a forum where you can learn how to fight these people back. I just came from there and it's a great web site. These folks really know how to scam the scammers.

Widow in England
Ha, I just got an email from "Lady Peggy Morrison," a nice widow who wants to share her inheritance with me. What a joke!

"I Am Lady Peggy Morrison, suffering from cancerous ailment.I am a widow
my husband Sir Richard Morrison an Englishman who is dead. My husband
was into private practice all his life before his death. My husband and I
made a vow to uplift the down-trodden and the less-privileged
individuals as he had passion for people who can not help themselves due to
physical disability or financial predicament. I can adduce this to the fact
that he needed a Child from this relationship, which never came.When my
late husband was alive he deposited the sum of 20 Million(twenty
Million Great Britain Pounds Sterling which were derived from his vast
estates and investment in capital market with his bank here in UK. Presently,
this money is still with the Bank. Recently, my Doctor told me that I
have limited days to live due to the cancerous problems I am suffering
from. I have decided to donate this fund to you and I took this decision
because I do not have any child that will inherit this money. please
assure me that you will act just as I have stated herein. Hope to hear
from you thanks. contact my private email "

I had never gotten emails like this until I just started entering tons of sweeps at the beginning of June, but I got two today from different places with obvious scame and poor English. How are they getting my email if none of these companies is selling my information? It's just a little unnerving. I'd like to think that since I document all the sweeps I enter, that I would know if I had entered a contest or not, but I just hate that I have to be on my guard about stuff like this!

Have you tried typing your name or the names you use online in Yahoo or Google to see what comes up? You'd be surprised how the scammers get your name. It's not just from entering contests either.

just got a new one. did not cut and paste but it says I won a Kia sedan but I would have to pay for delivery and the cost is $660 for delivery in 7 days or $550 for delivery in 14 days and please set up delivery and pay the money. I don't think so but I can see people falling for this.
