No kidding! I received this just half-an-hour ago!
Why, surely this is not a hoax or an attempt to rip me off, right? I can’t wait to divulge all of my personal information to this stranger! A stranger who, mind you, has clearly stated that he is safeguarding American lives and liberties and has demonstrated such fine typing, spelling, and grammar skills!
Of course, I will tithe and give a very generous offering to God’s Work. Then, I think I will buy a solid gold calculator.
[OK… That feels better! Sometimes you just have to get something out of your system. 🙂 Really, if you believe anything like this when you see it, then I still have some gullibility detectors to sell you (like I mentioned Thursday). Have a wonderful Sabbath!]
