    I have literally several hundred million dollars world-wide that I have yet to claim. I also have several unclaimed laptop computers.

    There is a site called 419eaters.com that run these guys around and have them do stupid stuff thinking that they will be getting paid for their work etc. It's pretty funny and I spend way too mmuch time reading their stuff

    The scary thing is that some still believe giving the codes to allow electronic access to one's bank accounts is a sane act.

    Yeah, I have more than the yearly budget of many countries waiting for me should I choose to reply. There was someone on the net a while back that actually replies to those emails. He strings them along and has actually gotten money from some of them.

    You mean the $10,000 I sent this organization really won't go to feed the poor?

    Any e-mail I get, if not from someone I know, get marked as spam and deleted unopened. I wonder how many millions of dollars I've let slip through my fingers?

    I think everybody gets these all the time, and they keep tweaking things to get them past my spam filters.

    I think it's amusing when I, say, "win" millions from Great Britain, but the e-mail domain is .cn or something.

    Even the premise is off the charts. Eight plus million for charity? An average person would not even know where to begin to build an organization to disperse the funds to the needy...
