Dear Mr. Douglas Sango,

Havign opened my inbox this morning, I read your heartfelt letter with some interest. I must inform you, however, that in your attempts to secure my bank account information, you have made a grave error for I am merely a felis domesticus. In other words, I am a cat. I don't know how interspecies business relations are in Africa, but here in America, we suffer severe discrimination in the area of banking.

I am not allowed a credit card, a money order, a pay-advance loan, a debit card, cashier's check, or even a banking account.

While I do not know what it is like to have my 4.5 million dollars trapped in an overseas country thanks to poor financial planning on the part of my mother, I do know that reasonable people do not send e-mails to others seeking financial assistance from strangers. That would be like me sending out e-mails to felines living in Chile, asking them if it were alright for me to use their litter box. They have never seen me. They don't know me. Why would they trust me?

I hope you get your issue sorted out. I'm sorry for the misunderstanding.

Gemini said...

Oh we've gotten those. I thought it would be an application for your new pet...

Renee said...

We get those all the time too. I love your response to it. Too bad sending it means that you're on their mailing list forever and they don't read it.
I would have to think that by now folks aren't falling for this anymore...but apparently it is still working as they are still doing it.
I tried sending a few to some supposed website that said it could help you with it and all they said was to never respond to them...DUH! How about they do what they say on their website and track these folks down and arrest them, burn them, smash their computer???

Call the "direct phone" to his room (collect of course). When he answers - and surely he will, he sounds like such a NICE, HONEST young man - you can explain his mistake.

Good one Zeus! Mum keeps getting them from people in Europe that she has won the lottery. Same deal, send your bank details. But mum says she didn't play, so she couldn't have won. Think of all the cat treats that would buy.

Lux said...

Great response! Mom just reported hers as spam (she received several this week alone) ...

DaisyMae Maus said...

Zeus ... Your eloquence and patience are remarkable. I'd have told him "H*LL NO!" in no uncertain terms.

Mum and Dad are ROFL. When Dad was a business editor, he was always amazed at how many people fell for that.

Karen Jo said...

Well, he's an equal opportunity scammer -- people, cats and probably blogging dogs, too. I love your response.

Justin said...
