Thats just sad . You should reply and pretend to go along with it for a while for humor purposes , and post every email the fruitcake sends you here . Pretend to be an idiot when replying to him just for kicks .

Sounds a bit like the Nigerian scam thats been going for a while now. If the guy asks you to deposit 2G's as goodwill to prove your "goodwill" then I'm right.
Lagos, Nigeria. Attention: The President/CEO
Confidential Business Proposal
Having consulted with my colleagues and based on the information gathered from the Nigerian Chambers Of Commerce And Industry, I have the privilege to request your assistance to transfer the sum of $47,500,000.00 (forty seven million, five hundred thousand United States dollars) into your accounts. The above sum resulted from an over-invoiced contract, executed, commissioned and paid for about five years (5) ago by a foreign contractor. This action was however intentional and since then the fund has been in a suspense account at The Central Bank Of Nigeria Apex Bank.
We are now ready to transfer the fund overseas and that is where you come in. It is important to inform you that as civil servants, we are forbidden to operate a foreign account; that is why we require your assistance. The total sum will be shared as follows: 70% for us, 25% for you and 5% for local and international expenses incidental to the transfer.
The transfer is risk free on both sides. I am an accountant with the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC). If you find this proposal acceptable, we shall require the following documents:
(a) your banker's name, telephone, account and fax numbers.
( your private telephone and fax numbers — for confidentiality and easy communication.
Alternatively we will furnish you with the text of what to type into your letter-headed paper, along with a breakdown explaining, comprehensively what we require of you. The business will take us thirty (30) working days to accomplish.
i say never go with something that is too good to be true(theres always people who dont think) you cant become a millionaire in one day just by sending a bit of cash (unless you win the lotto ) its always a scam i have got that kinda of stuff all i do is send it to the trash i think next time i play alone just to get there hopes up then say your no im not giving you any money something like that
Yeah, gotta love getting spammed by the get rich quick scams. Really makes ya wish, they had something better to do with their time & life, than trying to scam others. It's actually sad that there are people out there who believe them. With all the viruses out there now, I don't even open email, unless I'm 100% sure who it's come from.
In The Name Of God, Impure Souls Of The Living Dead Shall Be Banished Into Eternal Damnation. AMEN
