    Bite his hand off, you won’t get better.

    Edit: Actually, ask him if it’s Michael Jeremy or Jeremy Michael for starters 😉

    Ask them what country they are in and say as luck would have it you are having trouble with a bank account …….

    Weird him out – tell him you will happily do business with him provided he lets you lick his testicles. Should be interesting to see how that sounds through google translate!

    Do you suspect he’s from Cornwall ?

    I might ask him to trace any long lost relatives whilst he’s at it. I’m sure a rich uncle will have died recently leaving me millions

    Morning, I don’t know if you have come across this guy, but appears to be a scammer watching the classifieds.

    I got exactly the same email. I’m electing to ignore it, but you could see how many hoops the scammers will jump through.

    @batman: The other thread is two hours older than yours, dupes get locked here.
