Very OT - and very funny!

Pestered by lottery wins and bogus inheritance claims?
Been plagued by spam scammers after your bank details in exchange for
$70,000,000?
Cajoled into buying gold mining shares?
Well now you can have a laugh at their expense.

It seems it is nothing new. I put a similar note on my Other Hobby e-group and someone posted the following ...
Leof menn,
I am writing to you, Praise God, secretly from the socialist land of Mercia. My name is Wulfstan and I have proposal for you. As you may have heard, our blessed King was killed at the hands of these conspirators, I was his war leader and secretary. Our land is plunged in many troubles and turmoils since then.
The problem is that only I know the location of royal hoard and the extent of its wealth. Believe me dear friend, it is very big. The last estimate of this value is equivalent to 8000 hides, enough to make anyone sharing in this hoard a wealthy thegn indeed. My eyes saw the heirloom helmets and swords, not to mention a twisted gold necklace taken from the neck of an Irish chieftain (dead of course). However the problem is that if the socialist government of Mercia finds this hoard, they will transfer it to their own hoard. My claims of reward as war leader will not stop them from using it to line the pockets of various party secretaries and others who are blood-stained with murder of their lawful King as well as being fat cowardly bastards.
Dear friends in East Anglia, although I never meet you, I trust in your generosity and kindness to me and I hasten to add that I did not kill your king's son that was Herestan not me. I propose to split this hoard with you, but first it must be spirited out of Mercia. I can have it transferred to your hoard account in London if you will provide this location by the hand of trusty messengers. This messengers will tell me location of your hoard and then I dear friend may add to it, by other trusty messengers, the hoard of my dear deceased king. Only you must keep this secret from all others in East Anglia so that you are not fall under same predicament as me, that is knowing location of hoard with no way to access it due to greedy neighbours. And you must provide your name and location of estate especially if hoard is not buried on this same estate. And whether anything dangerous is to be encountered with this hoard location.
Many blessings will come to you for that you were kind to this poor stranger out of all the troubles of our land.
Your dear friend, Wulfstan Wigmundson Former war leader and secretary to Mercian former King

And now someone has sent me this one. A lot of work has gone into it, but I had to watch/listen to it twice as it moves right along ;o))
