Gosh I love scam emails...you may remember when I received this one, in which I was renamed "Martini Jerry".
Imagine my surprise when I opened this little gem today...

Thanks and awaiting your response.Yours Sincerly MR DAPO OLA-DANIELS
I mean really, there is just no way I wasn't responding to that one. How could I resist??
Dear Mr. Dapo,
I regret to inform you that I am, in fact, deceased. I was out for a long walk when out of NOWHERE I was attacked by a badger. Yes, a Badger! In Pennsylvania! Trust me, no one was more shocked than I! But that's not what did me in, no sir. I survived the vicious attack, losing ONLY two fingers and an earlobe in the process, only to find out that the badger had given me rabies. Yes, Rabies! But thats not what did me in either. No, no, no. After going through countless rounds of shots in the belly I was deemed cured of rabies! Praise the Lord! After hearing that narvelous news I decided to treat myself to some sushi yes, sushi! And that, dear sir, is what did me in.
Yours (even in death),
It's just fun, you know? Oh, I signed it Scruffy because that is my nickname (it's the hair) and it is part of the email address to which Dear Mr. Dapo sent that email.
