Dear American:

I need to ask you to support an urgent secret business relationship with a transfer of funds of great magnitude. I am Ministry of the Treasury of the Republic of America. My country has had crisis that has caused the need for large transfer of funds of 800 billion dollars US. If you would assist me in this transfer, it would be most profitable to you.

I am working with Mr. Phil Gram, lobbyist for UBS, who will be my replacement as Ministry of the Treasury in January. As a Senator, you may know him as the leader of the American banking deregulation movement in the 1990s. This transactin is 100% safe.

This is a matter of great urgency. We need a blank check. We need the funds as quickly as possible. We cannot directly transfer these funds in the names of our close friends because we are constantly under surveillance. My family lawyer advised me that I should look for a reliable and trustworthy person who will act as a next of kin so the funds can be transferred.

Please reply with all of your bank account, IRA and college fund account numbers and those of your children and grandchildren to wallstreetbailout@treasury.gov so that we may transfer your commission for this transaction. After I receive that information, I will respond with detailed information about safeguards that will be used to protect the funds.

Yours Faithfully Minister of Treasury Paulson

You'd be amazed how many people I pass this on to write back warning me that it's a hoax.

Unfortunately, it isn't.

OMG, that's really funny! I may have deleted one of these already...I never read them. So glad you blogged this.

Priceless --

Unlike the value of the U.S. government.

So true, so sad.
Hang on to your wallet, assets, 401k, IRAs. This is bumpy times.
The sad truth is that the spoofed spam is so close to the truth. Are you ready for a change yet?

Truthfully, the way various governments - I include mine in this statement - have dealt with their countries' finances of late, it wouldn't altogether surprise me if it were not a hoax.

It's called blankcheckeconomics. I fell for this one, myself.

I love that...but unfortunately, it's about right.
