So could you end up getting 5% of a good few million as well then  ;)

For some reason they must think that I will fall for it if they tell me that someone with the same surname has died and I could try and claim their millions  ::)
Someone even tried using the same story on me  ??? duh

How did it all go Neil  [:X]

Oh you want my bank detail, well sure you can have them, oh, and don't worry about it, I'll send some money as well........they certainly are crafty buggers aren't they  ;)

They're like Welsh comedians, always using the same old lines and act, jokers who are not funny  ;)


I would just like to note that I do not have anything against the Welsh, was just making a joke, plus I've met a few Welsh girls who are hot that I melted with a slight release of man joy. Anyway, yay Welsh

Only a couple ever make it into my inbox on yahoo. The majority of them go into my bulk folder and with one click, wait, make that two clicks of the empty and then ok box, they're all gone  :)

That's cool. Gmail is easy enough to rid, it empties out Neil tells me on its own after so many days.. It just makes me crazy waiting!
