I always like to get e-mail, but who knew I'd hear from the guy whose letter I've pasted below?
Two reasons why this letter's better than the run-of-the-mill crap from the "descendants" of - ironically - Sani Abacha:
Ol' Michel is pretty cheap. You can't have ANY money unless I help you and the best you can do is a quarter-mill in dough and chunks o' gold?
That last part, gold, makes me think Michel's been watching too much CNN in the morning (the only place I know of that you can run afoul of the Monex slobs)
