Srange things happening here. The original post has overwritten Dave Halford & Ady1's post so cannot read them. Have refreshed the page & logged in & out but still the same. Anyone else with the same problem ?

Yes, same here, probably caused by the original cut and paste, I guess. Don't get too excited, Oldiron, they're only giving you 30%, so it's a mere 14 and a bit million sad

Dear Friend,

Good day to you. Apparently [!] this email will be coming to you as a surprise since we have not met before now. My name is Reem E. Al-Hashimi, the Emirates Minister of State for international cooperation and Managing Director of United Arab Emirates (Dubai) World Expo 2020 Committee. I am writing you to know if your would be willing to receive and invest a huge sum on my behalf. ... my share of gratification from foreign companies whom I helped during bidding for the Dubai World Expo 2020.

Am a single Arab women [sic] serving as a minister, ...a limit to my personal income and investment level [so] cannot receive such a sum back to my country or in my personal account, so an agreement was reached with the foreign companies to direct the gratifications to an open beneficiary account with a financial institution [for] me to instruct further transfer of the fund to a third party account for investment... [so contacted you] to receive the fund as my partner for investment in your country.

The amount is ... €47,745,533.00 Million [that's the Middle East bankupted then] institution is waiting for my instruction to transfer the funds to designated account. I have decided to compensate you with 30% of the total amount and you will also get benefit from the investment.

Ooops, my calculation of 14 and a bit million was way out after reading it properly - carbide tips and soluble oil all round!

Sorru about the strange layout fault. Thank you Moderator for mending it.

It appeared here as soon as I created the post, but in my case plastered across the new-message page instead of across others' posts.

Logging off and starting again did not clear it, but I assumed it was a purely local effect and the much longer and more complete break might clear it.

I have known odd effects before, like a complete font colour-change, but these not be seen on the readers' screens.

For the record, I use WIN 7 Pro and Firefox.


Ah, 30%. So I could buy only a third of the inserts and cutting-fluid.
