My name is Mambaazo Toomay. I have much money tied up in this pyramid scheme. Add my name to the topp of this list, put you name at the bottom, subtract/remove twoi names from the middle, and then add all your S.S.N.s, credit card # with PIN, and bank account #s so that I can deliver all to the money to YOU. As Cheif Secretary and Treasurer for the Royal Kingdom of Montainia, I have no need for money, but I will keep you money to hide from the IRS until next year. You save not by paying taxes this year. I am just tinking of you. R/C pilots are my friend. Rest assurde that my partner, Abdulac Fitzsimmons, ( Deputy of Interior Recreational Budget) will oversee all transactions to prevent identity theift. Your money will return home eleven times greater than when it has been bigger when it will be sent out at a later date. Gift certificates form Tower Hobbies made out to "Bearer" will double the face value ot you return many times over, at least twice once in more than this year.

Please act soon, you money is waiting to be spent.

Sorry buddy! My post was not directed to you but to the original post! My apology if it came out wrong! I've seen this same stupid post hundreds of times on various news groups.They just never give up trying to scam people like they got scammed!

LOL! You wrote just a bit too much like the real thing. It took me a few seconds to realize what you were doing. :o)

Peace be unto you, Mambaazo!

No problem. I agree, I hate these stupid things. I guess Barnum was right, there is one born every minute. How else would these schemes go on for so many years? Now if we just had a way to zap the computer of the guy who posted it on our R/C group.

BTW (to leave this on a happy note) I flew my Top Flight AT-6 a few days ago. WOW! What a great flying model. I made a pass three feet above the runway with full flaps and the gear up. I hit the throttle and a little up elevator when it got in front of us... it climbed like it was on a cable! What a pretty bird.
