Apparently someones God-dar is broken... Deacon Brown: Dumbass Criminal of the Week.

Subject: GLORY BE TO GOD


Dear In Christ,

This is a personal email directed to you and I request that it be
 treated as such. God is a spirit, and they that worship him must worship him
 in spirit and in truth. Based on this scripture, it became obvious
 that I should do the right thing if I must enter into the kingdom of God.

 I am , Deacon Brown Lee the legal adviser to late Mr. Mike &  Carol Hall,
 a God fearing and dedicated couple. They were very wealthy but had no
 child. They travelled to Patong-Thailand for Christmas holiday but et
 death on the 26th of December 2004 during the Tsunami disaster

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/bristol/4153821.stm

As their legal adviser, before their death, the husband Mr. Mike Hall
 instructed me to write his WILL, because they had no child, he dedicated
 their wealth to God. They had a lot of landed properties houses
 Stocks/bonds, etc. According to their instruction.According to the WILL,
 their assets should be given out to a ministry for the work of God. As their legal adviser,
 all the documents for the


 fund that are deposited with the Vault company are in my care. As a born
 again Christian, I have been reading my bible and I have to do what
 is lawful and right in the sight of God by giving out the fund to the
 chosen ministry for the purpose of God's work as instructed by the owners
 before there death. After my fasting and prayers Today, I asked God to
 make his choice and direct me to an honest Christian or the chosen
 ministry that deserves this fund by his Grace. I then came across your
 address on the Internet.
  I appeal to you to use the fund wisely for things
 that will glorify the name of God.

Also, could you get back to me having visiting the above website to
 enable us discuss in a more clarifying manner to the best of your
 understanding. I must say that I'm very uncomfortable sending this message to
 you without knowing truly if you would misconstrue the importance and
 decides to go public. In this regards, I will not hold back to say that
 the essence of this message is strictly for Charity.
May God bless you as you make up your mind to work for God.

Thanks.

Elizabeth & Deacon Brown Lee

 

 

 

I'm not responding, I think it's self explanatory.  The email address he found for me was one of my @rationalresponders.com addresses. 

 

Oh and check this out college sports fans... he's got an email address for fans of the Demon Deacons but is trying to pass it off as a Deacon: http://www.deacons.com/

Are people still stupid enough to respond to these scams? Oh wait, I forgot people are still stupid enough to be Christians.

I've heard of people who had sufficient resources turning these scams around on the people who perpetrated them. Might be something to think about, if you're into such things.

scams about everything

My husband is a dog trainer and got some emails based on his business.  I didn't save the emails, but it started out very convincing.  This European model was going to be in Portland (see, they even researched the city!), and needed someone to set up dog training and equipment and such for her dog.  But they were going to need him to send money before they came to the US.  You didn't find out about the money until about the 4th email.

along those lines, here's a fantastic and addictive website run by a community of people who do just that.  the letters archive is hilarious.  my favorite is the exchange where a fake pastor gets the scammer to get a tatoo--and document the process photographically--in exchange for promised money.

here's the tatoo exchange:

How come

nobody ever sends me semifunny scam letters?

“A meritocratic society is one in which inequalities of wealth and social position solely reflect the unequal distribution of merit or skills amongst human beings, or are based upon factors beyond human control, for example luck or chance. Such a society is socially just because individuals are judged not by their gender, the colour of their skin or their religion, but according to their talents and willingness to work, or on what Martin Luther King called 'the content of their character'. By extension, social equality is unjust because it treats unequal individuals equally.” "Political Ideologies" by Andrew Heywood (2003)
