I bet this was a LOT more interesting than the online debate about pension funds!

I was interested in the bit where it says

"The legislator, from President Alberto Fernández’s Peronist party, at first pleaded to be suspended from his seat"

What on earth was REALLY going on?

Would have to be something higher than his seat unless of course he was using "from" as in the point where he's connected to the suspension rope/chains or whatever ... :lol: :lol: :lol:

:-)08 :-)08 :-)08 .
Reminded me of that joke about the man going to the doctors

Man " I need to see the doctor it's urgent"

Receptionist "What's wrong"

Man " well I am not telling you in front of everyone it's personal"

Receptionist " Unless you tell me what is wrong, I can't tell how urgent it is and if you need the doctor"

Man "Well it's my ear"

Receptionist " That doesn't sound personal, what exactly is wrong with it"

Man " I can't piss out of it"

This arrived in my inbox today. What a wonderful business opportunity! What do you all advise?

Hello,

I am Mr. Dorso Sandwidi from Burkina Faso in West African region. I
work with the bank of Africa here in the nation. I am writing you from
my office that which will be of an immense benefit to both of us. In
my department, being the account manager I discovered an abandoned sum
of $18 million USA Dollars (Eighteen million Us Dollars) in an account
that belongs to one of the bank late foreign customers, a German
citizen who
unfortunately lost his life in a plane crash.

The choice of contacting you is aroused from the geographical nature
of where you live, particularly due to the senility of the transaction
and the confidentiality herein. Now our bank has been waiting for any
of the relatives to come-up for the claim but nobody has done that. I
personally have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for many
years now, I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin /
beneficiary to the
deceased so that the proceeds of this account valued at 18 Million
Dollars can be done and paid to you for both of us.

This will be disbursed or shared between the both of us in these
percentages, 55% to me and 35% to you while 10% will be for expenses
both parties might have incurred during the process of transferring. I
have secured necessary information’s and the certificate of deposit
that can be used to back up this claim we are making.

All I require now is your honest Co-operation, Confidentiality and
trust to enable us sees this transaction through. I guarantee you that
this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect
you from any breach of the law.

Having gone through a methodical search, I decided to contact you
hoping that you will find this proposal interesting. Please on your
confirmation of this message and indicating your interest, I will
furnish you with more information.

Endeavour to let me know your decision rather than to keep me waiting or
exposing me.

Regards,

Mr. Dorso Sandwidi

He IS making a very improper suggestion! I wonder how hard he has tried in his efforts to be ‘unsuccessful in locating the relatives for many years now’ ? He acknowledges it’s not all above board in his last sentence!

I meant in a slightly different vein. :lol: Although the idea of the transaction being senile is a new one!

These scams have been doing the rounds for years although I haven't been on the receiving end of one for at least 18 months.

Yes it’s a classic, isn’t it? I’ve read about them but this is the first I’ve actually received. Was there a book recently where a man pretended to engage with the scammers and had long funny email exchanges with them?
