I usually respond to those emails with the following -

"I would surely be willing to help you in this matter and would like to talk with you as soon as possible.  I can be reached at 212.902.1000.  Please ask for Lloyd Blankfein and my executive assistant will be able to get you in touch with me and we can get the ball rolling."

Another one is:

Dear sir,

Thanks for the offer. Unfortunately, my account is frozen due to a dispute with the bank and they will not release any of my funds until I pay them $100k in dispute.

If you send me the $100k to unfeeeze my account, i will be able to deal with you and sent you the $1MM.

Nope.  Redirection is dependent upon your ISP portal location, I suspect.  If entered as such, a browser remains at, at least here in Canada.

My world sources tell me North African and Middle Eastern countries are getting ready to pull the plug on the dollar.

Covert withdraw of dollar denominated assets are on-going. Protection of precious mettle reserve measures are underway.

The closing of markets in specific areas to shut out western arbitrage will continue.

A spike in US Treasury yields is imminent.

About two years ago there was a news story regarding a county treasurer who was scammed by this. She lost something like a quarter of a million dollars.

That means you now have the credentials to run for office.

Education shouldn't be used as a measuring stick to how smart someone is, but more of a guide post on how well they follow instructions by others.

...Yup....Trying to move his cash to Vancouver BC, Canada...

"Canada's four Western Provinces...with a plethora of natural resources and only 12.5 million citizens, led by gateway city, Vancouver BC...

Based on a combination of environment, health care, culture and infrastructure, Vancouver topped the list of the world's most liveable cities for the fifth straight year, according to a new report....."

Do you really believe this crap? A city where the average home price is 9 times the median income, where an overdue earthquake would come with liquefaction, where the sheep vote socialist, and which has a metro population over 1 million with practically no expressways? Granted, it's a nice place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there.

Ahh, the report came from The Economist. Which explains much.

+++ Very nice.

And OT, TD, can I suggest re-christening the ChairSatan a little?


How is ChairShaitan (Shaitan, Etymological parent of Satan, in Arabic).

It's got some Zing and comes off th etongue with a little Swing.


Even the ME will get behind it.

He had me worried when he briefly switched to other barnyard animals, but now he's safely back to least for the moment.

Goldman Sachs hires law firm to shut blogger's site


Goldman Sachs is attempting to shut down a dissident blogger who is extremely critical of the investment bank, its board members and its practices.

The bank has instructed Wall Street law firm Chadbourne & Parke to pursue blogger Mike Morgan, warning him in a recent cease-and-desist letter that he may face legal action if he does not close down his website.

Florida-based Mr Morgan began a blog entitled "Facts about Goldman Sachs" the web address for which is just a few weeks ago.
