    Oddly enough my coworker was contacted by Idi Amin's widow today who wants him to help her get some money out of the country. What are the odds of this type of thing happening to two coworkers in one day?

    I believe that these emails can be used as a letter of credit widely accepted by most banks and lenders. I would go ahead and present it to them for immediate approval on a loan for a new home, boat and car.[​IMG] [​IMG]

    I misunderstood, I thought you were implying that meant people in Holland didn't qualify for the lottery.

    The really funny part is where the letter implies that the Government of the Netherlands would finance a lottery open to anyone, then require foreign winners to be "naturalized" (i.e. to become citizens) to collect.

    No worries wally, I didn't see it as harsh at all. I just missed your original point, that's all.
