You're having a Dilemma

Would you rather live in a DUMPSTER or CARDBOARD BOX?

Millions of people all over the world are homeless and on April 20, 2003 you will become one of them.


This is an important decision. It Is possible that you may be living in ether of the choices for the next 20 YEARS. Think of the pro and con before making your choice. Its very important.

The Dumpster is located in Hawaii.
The cardboard box is located in the Bahamas

The cardboard box is one that a wide screen TV came in.(The TV is not included.)
The dumpster is emptied every Tuesday and Thursday.

The box is empty.
The dumpster is full of garbage except every Tuesday and Thursday.

You can make a meal out of the stuff in the dumpster.

The dumpster is next to a middle school. All the kids will know you sleep there.
You share the box with Carrot Top.

Some "Weed" seeds have sprouted near the dumpster.
The cardboard box has 2 bedroom, 1 bath and has an Olympic size swimming pool.

If you have any questions please ask. If you have made you decision please share it with us.

Dear Submitter,

This is yourself, from 10 hours in the future. Go to TotalFark right now and submit the following discussion thread:

"I got this email today. What does it mean? Email in Thread"

But, do NOT submit the details.

Fark admins will greenlight it and you will become a hero to all.

Here it is!

29 members of Congress have been accused of spousal abuse,
7 have been arrested for fraud,
19 have been accused of writing bad checks,
117 have bankrupted at least two businesses,
3 have been arrested for assault,
71 have credit reports so bad they can't qualify for a credit card,
14 have been arrested on drug-related charges,
8 have been arrested for shoplifting,
21 are current defendants in lawsuits,
And in 1998 alone, 84 were stopped for drunk driving, but released after they claimed Congressional immunity. (from Capitol Hill Blue)

And these are the People who make Laws that We MUST obey?

Attn: The Managing Director
Kapow Technologies A/S

Dear Sir,


We want to transfer to overseas ($ 152,000.000.00 USD)One hundred and Fifty two million United State Dollars) from a Prime Bank in Africa, I want to ask you to quietly look for a reliable and honest person who will be capable and fit to provide either an existing bank account or to set up a new Bank a/c immediately to receive this money, even an empty a/c can serve to receive this money, as long as you will remain honest to me till the end for this important business trusting in you and believing in God that you will never let me down either now or in future.

I am MR. DINO MAKEBA.the Auditor General of prime Banks, during
the course of our auditing I Discovered a floating fund in an
account opened In the bank in 1990 and since 1993 nobody has
Operated on this account again, after going through some old
files in the records I discovered that the owner of the account died without a [heir] hence the money is floating and if I do not remit this money out urgently it will be forfeited for nothing. the owner of this account is Mr. Allan P.Seaman, a foreigner, and an industrialist, and he died since 1993. And no other person knows about this account or any thing concerning it, the account has no other Beneficiary and my investigation proved to me as well that Allan P. Seaman until his death was the manager Diamond Safari [pty]. SA.

We will start the first transfer with fifty two million [$52,000.000] upon successful transaction without any disappoint from your side, we shall re-apply for the payment of the remaining rest amount to your account, The amount involved is (USD152M) One hundred and Fifty two million United States Dollars, only I want to first transfer $52,000.000 [fifty two million United States Dollar from this money into a safe foreigners account abroad before the rest, but I don't know any foreigner, I am only contacting you as a foreigner because this money can not be approved to a local person here, without valid international foreign passport, but can only be approved to any foreigner with valid international passport or drivers license and foreign a/c because the money is in us dollars and the former owner of the a/c Mr. Allan P. Seaman is a foreigner too, [and the money can only be approved into a foreign a/c.

However, we will sign a binding agreement, to bind us together I got your contact address through Internet when I?m looking for person or company who will assist me, I am revealing this to you with believe in God that you will never let me Down in this business, you are the first and the only person that I am contacting for this business, so please reply urgently so that I will inform you the next step to take urgently. Send also your private telephone and fax number including the full details of the account to be used for the deposit.

I want us to meet face to face to build confidence and to sign
a binding agreement that will bind us together before transferring the money to any account of your choice where the fund will be safe. Before we fly to your country for withdrawal, sharing and investments.I need your full co-operation to make this work fine. because the management is ready to approve this payment to any foreigner who has correct information of this account, which I will give to you, upon your positive response and once I am convinced that you are capable and will meet up with instruction of a key bank official who is deeply involved with me in this business. I need your strong assurance that you will never, neverlet me down.

With my influence and the position of the bank official we can
transfer this money to any foreigner?s reliable account which
you can provide with assurance that this money will be intact
pending our physical arrival in your country for sharing.The
bank official will destroy all documents of transaction immediately we receive this money leaving no trace to any place and to build confidence you can come immediately to discuss with me face to face after which I will make this remittance in your presence and three of us will fly to your country at least two days ahead of the money going into the account.

I will apply for annual leave to get visa immediately I hear
from you that you are ready to act and receive this fund in
your account. I will use my position and influence to obtain
all legal approvals for onward transfer of this money to your
account with appropriate clearance from the relevant ministries
and foreign exchange departments.

At the conclusion of this business, you will be given 35% of
the total amount, 60% will be for me, while 5% will be for
expenses both parties might have incurred during the process
of transferring.

I look forward to your earliest reply .

Yours truly

2005-03-25 01:29:16 PM  

Sure, I say go for it! I had a similar deal with a Kuwaiti oil minister, who has just recently assured me that my money will be transferred to my account tomorrow. I just have to send him $2,000 to prime the transaction.

Submitter was very curious at what I would find in the email from Damnation L. Fetishist with the subject: What's your Pleasure, Squire.

But alas, no Microsoft programs, even those from the black market, pleasure him.
2005-03-25 01:41:27 PM  
Before the submitter mysteriously vanished, he forwarded the email to me. From the details I can get from the headers, it looks like it routed through the Department of Homeland Security. Here's what I got:



"Regarding we havePlease and discontinueunder penalty of law."

Thank You,


I'm stumped.
