I really can't understand the attitude of some people. The guy is obviously in need of help and we ought to be charitable enough to assist. So I've sent him my bank details.

Right...feet up on the desk and waiting for the cash to roll in. Smile

p.s. When should I hand my notice in at work?

The trouble with these guys in West Africa is that they see Gordon Brown and his cabinet in the media and they get to thinking that everyone in this country is as daft as GB.

Very few are naive enough to fall for this scam and perhaps Wilfred would be better advised to direct his letters to Gordon himself as he has plenty of money for every stupid idea to cross his desk.

I may end up buying it myself just to stop the advertising campaign, and I don't think it will fit on my 40D Tongue Grin
