    Ha! You fool! You never should have posted the number. I called and gave them my address, now the box will be delivered to me.

    What's with you, man?

    Re: Great Junk Mail!!

    The ambiguity about the customs/FBI/CIA/police makes me think it's legit.

    Oh yeah? Well I found out that a relative is a prince in some country and he wants to share his fortunes with me. All I had to do was wire him $1,000 for the transfer fee and I would receive $100 million. SEZ is on its way boys!

    He seems to greet you so intimately. How is it that you don't trust him!?!?

    I say go ahead. What could possibly go wrong?


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    Great idea!

    Maybe CPR, too. He wouldn't be out of gas if he knew so many people cared!

    Guys, I don't see the problem. He passed the Customs/FBI/CIA/Police terrorist test. That's gotta be one of the most strict tests a package could go through and it made it through. I say go for it OP. All the man wants to do is deliver you your package.

    Re: Great Junk Mail!!

    I got one of these letters about two years ago stating that I had some unclaimed money in a bank in another country I had recently visited. Asked me to send them $2500 in the form of only a certified bank check and they would send me the $50,000 I had in unclaimed money minus the $2500 I was sending them. The only thing is is that I have never been out of the country in my life.

    My attorney told me that it was a scam and her office did some investigating and called the FBI. The phone number that was on the letter was from some little town in New York, the address was from Canada and the email they were unable to trace...go figure.

    The FBI called me about six times and had me fill out a statement and some paper work but nothing else came to light.
