I'm a millionaire!!! I got the official letter!!

Posted Nov 07 2010 12:00am
Check out the email I received the other day! How lucky am I that, as soon as I send my info to the US Embassy in the Benin Republic, I'll receive $2.5 MILLION DOLLARS!! Should I quit my job now, or wait until the box is delivered to my house?? I'm so excited!!


Do people really fall for this crap??


The scary thing is, James Knight really is the US Ambassador to the Benin Republic and they're using his photo in the email.  If someone got this email and they weren't sure and checked out the webpage for Embassy in the Benin Republic, they'd see Ambassador Knight's photo and the email looks like it really came from the Embassy!!


Below is the email I received.   This is actually the first time I've gotten this one.


ATTN: Beneficiary,
