Quote:
Hi my name is Kayla Wightman. I am 15 years old, and i have a [sic.] severe lung cancer from second hand smoke. I also have a large tumor in my brain, from repeated beatings. Doctors say I will die soon if this isn't fixed, and my family can't pay the bills. The Make A Wish Foundation, has agreed to donate 7 cents evertime [sic.] this message is sent on. For those of you who send this along, I thank you so much, but for those who don't send it, what goes around comes around. Have a heart, please. If you don't send this to everyone on your list you have a cold heart

I'm not getting any interesting junk, just medicine offers.

They have the most interesting spam filter titles though: "He translate be nihlilsm" "Not give my shrill" "Do shut my islee consignee."

In the past three weeks, I've had two long-lost relatives die, each leaving me part of their own estates/fortunes worth 6.1 million dollars. And I've won the lottery in China, Germany, and Argentina.

Poor Jackson...his cancer has defiled all forms of medicine


Quote:
Dear Friend,

As you read this, I don't want you to feel sorry for me because I
believe everyone will die someday. My name is jackson mark, a business
merchant in Dubai, in the U.A.E. I have been diagnosed with Esophageal
cancer which was discovered very late, due to my laxity in carrying for my
health. It has defiled all forms of medicine, and right now I have only
about a few months to live, according to medical experts. I have not
particularly lived my life so well, as I never really cared for anyone
not even myself but my business. Though I am very rich, I was never
generous, I was always hostile to people and only focus on my business as
that was the only thing I cared for. But now I regret all these as I now
know that there is more to life than just wanting to have or make all
the money in the world. I believe if I will have a second chance to come
to this world I would live my life a different way from how I have
lived it. Now that I have been called, I have willed and given most !
of my properties and assets to my immediate and extended family
members and as well as a few close friends. I want my sins to be forgiven and
my soul being accepted. I have decided to give alms to charity
organizations, as I want this to be one of the last good deeds I do on earth.
So far, I have distributed money to some charity organizations in the
U.A.E, Algeria and Malaysia. Now that my health has deteriorated so
badly, I cannot do this myself any more. I once asked members of my family
to close one of my accounts and distribute the money which I have there
to charity organization in Bulgaria and Pakistan, they refused and kept
the money to themselves. Hence, I do not trust them anymore, as they
seem not to be contended with what I have left for them. The last of my
money which no one knows of is the huge cash deposit of Twenty Million
United States Dollars ($20,000,000.00) in consignment which I deposited
in form of my personal valuables with a security company in Europe. I will want you to help me collect this deposit and dispatch it to
charity organizations. (Please I advise that you email me back only at
jacksonmarkcontact.com for privacy) I have set aside 10% for you for
your time and patience.

God bless you.

jackson mark.

I wonder if he got cancer, because he was beaten too much?

THIS TOOK TWO PAGES OF THE TUESDAY USA TODAY - IT IS FOR REAL


Subject: PLEEEEEEASE READ!!!! it was on the news!




This thing is for real. Rest assured AOL and Intel will follow through with their promises for fear of facing a multimillion-dollar class action suit similar to the one filed by PepsiCo against General Electric not too long ago.



Dear Friends; Please do not take this for a junk letter. Bill Gates sharing his fortune. If you ignore this, You will repent later. Microsoft and AOL are now the largest Internet companies and in an effort to make sure that Internet Explorer remains the most widely used program, Microsoft and AOL are running an e-mail beta test.



When you forward this e-mail to friends, Microsoft can and will track it ( If you are a Microsoft Windows user) For a two weeks time period.



For every person that you forward this e-mail to, Microsoft will pay you $245.00 For every person that you sent it to that forwards it on, Microsoft will pay you $243.00 and for every third person that receives it, You will be paid $241.00. Within two weeks, Microsoft will contact you for your address and then send you a check.



Regards. Charles S Bailey General Manager Field Operations
1-800-842-2332 Ext. 1085 or 904-1085 or RNX
292-1085 Charles_Bailey@csx.com Charles_bailey@csx.com




I thought this was a scam myself, But two weeks after receiving this e-mail and forwarding it on. Microsoft contacted me for my address and withindays, I receive a check for $24,800.00. You need to respond before the beta testing is over. If anyone can affoard this, Bill gates is the man.



It's all marketing expense to him. Please forward this to as many people as possible. You are bound to get at least $10,000.00. We're not going to help them out with their e-mail beta test without getting a little something for our time. My brother's girlfriend got in on this a few months ago. When i went to visit him for the Baylor/UT game. She showed me her check. It was for the sum of $4,324.44 and was stamped "Paid in full"



Like i said before, I know the law, and this is for real.



Intel and AOL are now discussing a merger which would make them the largest Internet company and in an effort make sure that AOL remains the most widely used program, Intel and AOL are running an e-mail beta test.


When you forward this e-mail to friends, Intel can and will track it(if you are a Microsoft Windows user)for a two week time period.



TRy it; What have you got to lose

Haha..."e-mail beta test." If Microsoft actually paid people such exorbitant amounts of money for doing literally nothing, they'd probably have spent trillions of dollars by now and would have gone long bankrupt. I still get such a chuckle with such "official" sounding language. "Stamped 'Paid in full.'" Does anyone stamp that on any check?

I keep on getting virus e-mails from people claiming to run my own website. Funny, I never knew there was a flickerandfade.org team.

I must have the most miniscule penis out there, and they think it's not even hard enough.
