Turn $6000 into $16 Mill overnight with Patents!!

Thats' right, the opportunity you've been waiting for! This method works in a very short time. The cost is only $6000! This is the 16th day since I started receiving $ cash, and so far I have received $16 million (in $100 Bills) I guess this is really working already! Give it a try! All I did was follow the instructions in the letter that I received below, and sent out some e-mail to people that responded to my ads.

Just print out the first message below and mail it to the names listed below, along with a cheque for $6000. Then, (and this is where you make big money!!!), print out the second and mail that too.

Remember, follow the simple instructions EXACTLY, and in less than three months you should receive MORE THAN $16,00,000.00 IN COLD HARD CASH!

This is getting real depressing... can someone do another H1B, or certification, or "gimme my own office" post to get us out of this rut?

Geeze. How about we just set up a blind date for Bella with Mark Smith?

And they both have to wear Old Navy clothes on their date. Well, they both wear them until Bella stands before Mark and slowly unbuttons her Old Navy (tm) pants, revealing....

How do you know Bella is a woman?

Hey Bella, are you single? Will you be my geeky girlfriend?

Bella is male.  And for the record, Alyosha is too.

I found it amusing, if maybe a little TOO authentic.

Mike - how do you know that either Bella or Mark prefer the opposite sex?

They DO seem like they're repressing SOMETHING.
