  1. HA HA HA HA! Quick, send your details, you don't wanna miss out on this one!

  2. I don't think so Fen. I just remembered anyway Ban Ki-Moon is Secretary General, rather than Secretary. Surly not an impostor???

  3. Damn, wish I had that email and that that email was REAL! I would share the fortune with friends :)
    Sadly, some people will fall for the trickery :(

  4. Oh gee you get all the luck..... I have dipped out again.... nobody has offered me any compensation for the last 97 times I was scammed!

  5. Share Cazzie???

    Just to reference someone who has recently died, Wot you sayin' KN? It is not for real? Keep reading them and you will hit pay dirt soon.

  6. lol Andrew, isn't it funny when your attention is drawn to something, you keep coming across it? I have just read two references in the news to the Secretary General doing his 'real' job. He was praising the govt in Malawi for releasing the gay couple who were imprisoned. And he was urging the two sides in Cyprus not to let their peace talks fall apart again....
