I wonder how many people fall for these scams......they have devious, scheming, twisted minds. But I guess a ton of "free' e-mail gross back a few takers and $$$ in their pockets.

OMG that is way to funny...
now I know you said you shouldn't respond but why not have some fun with it.

Message him back with something like this:



Salutations, I "am" great, thanks for noticing.

I am very happy for you daughter and heart throb to have found each other. More so I am happy you have found me.

I can arrange wedding in whole as per your requests but with some slight modifications and recommendations as follows:


Wedding Gown for bride: color: White,Bridal Gowns, Bridal Corsets, Bridesmaids, Evening Wear and accessories.

How about a white one piece jump suit, complete with brides name monogrammed on the back and in front (over her heart).

Number for Bride's maids: 12.Bride's maid

We can accommodate 12 or more matching jump suits in this seasons hottest color...Bright Orange, no need to worry about size as one size fits all. The ladies will be the envy of all their friends. Also personally monogrammed...no extra charge!

Vehicles: Rolls Royce or Jaguar.

Since you will need to accommodate 12 brides maids and I am assuming 12 ushers and the lovely couple I would recommend something with a little more room for everyone... A beautiful cube van equipt with bench seating, safety doors that can only be opened from the outside, the vehicle comes with not one but 2 lovely uniformed guards to protect and secure the bridal party on their special day and personally escort you in and out of the vehicle .

Tuxedo Suits & TROUSER for the groom: Colour: Black, Size: Regular M, 40 R.
Tuxedo Suits for the best man: Colour: Black, Size: Regular M, 45 R.


again please refer to woman's apparel above for sizing and color.

Accessories for bride: headpieces, jewelry and make-up with hair styles

The perfect accessory to match those outfits can only be one thing...a pair of shiny stainless steel hand cuffs for everyone in this wedding party. Nothing say's "FOREVER" like a pair of shiny new cuff's.

Shoes for bride: Silver /white stiletto heels Size: 24, Shoes for the groom: Bostonian Ardlay Size: 38

Foot wear can also be provided to match.

Location for the wedding and reception: Must be arrange by the wedding Organizer

AS your organizer I would recommend the venue be held at the local court house where a judge can oversee and and officiate the entire proceedings.

Lodging for the guests for an estimate of 45 people (25th September to 27th September): Must be arrange and book by the wedding Organizer

Although at best lodgings can be sometimes be over crowded I am sure that we can accommodate the entire wedding party and guests at a city owned and run venue for your date of September, The Don Jail in downtown Toronto is a wonderful location that has been used in many films and has significant historical value that could only enhance the entire experience. Guests will have there own personal toilette and sink as well as fresh linens and Concierge and Security services. Also comes with complimentary wake up call, and 3 meals a day as well as exercise and fitness room.

Wedding cakes: Tiered Frosted Wedding Cake

It would be my pleasure to create a wonderful wedding cake for this event and if I may say so I have a wonderful idea for a cake that would be perfectly fitting. I was thinking a 3 tiered cake frosted in Butter Cream complete with a file in it.

Decorations/ Photographer: Must be arrange by the wedding Organizer

As to decorations those would be provided by the city and the Don Jail. Regarding the photographer I have someone in mind. He has years of experience working as a Police officer taking mug shots of various criminals and the like. His head shots are impeccable and I am sure your entire group will be thrilled.

Perhaps we can arrange a meet and greet with the entire Wedding Party to see the venue first had to make sure it meets with your approval.

I look forward to speaking with you and finalizing the arrangements for your daughters special day as I am sure this will be an event to remember.

Sincerely,

Ima Sucker

Oh MissLizzy, I am SOO tempted, but alas, I know that all he wants from me is my credit card number...sigh! Or, he wants to give me his family savings (way too much to pay for his dear daughter's nuptials, and then ask for a refund on the balance... icon_twisted.gif (detective.gif <= this is me doing my detective work! icon_biggrin.gif )

I can almost imagine a wedding party in bright orange spandex jumpsuits...! icon_eek.gif

Hey, Marmalade!! He emailed me too, and asked ME to do all of that stuff for him! Are you trying to steal my client? icon_rolleyes.gif

Costumeczar, maybe we can split the order (it looks big enough)...you can have the men's trouser's part of the order though! icon_lol.gif If you send me your credit card information, I'll pay you a really big amount of money. Then I'll ask for a refund when I realize that I have paid too much...oops, I just let the cat out of the bag...I guess I'm not made for scamming! icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

I think they type out their email in whatever language they speak, and paste in to Babelfish which may or may not give them the proper translation into English. Either way, you have to be a complete moron to fall for it. And someone must be, which is pretty scary, because these scams continue.

Hahaha! What a dumba$$! Now I need to stop laughing because it is pretty sad that some people would actually fall for that bull$hit. icon_cry.gif
