Writer, Rejected Receives a Different Kind of Letter

The subject line of the email below was "Do we have a deal," but in all caps. Personally, I suspect loyal LROD commenter, CAPS MAN.  I find the link to be especially disturbing, as part of the ruse?  People are really something, aren't they?

this is under 2500 words. with your's earning's from thi's transaction you could splurge on the $60 contest/editing fee. if you win, you could split the $100 60-40 with MR.kabiru yanogo.

of course, there would be some difficultie's transferring such a huge amount oversea's, but perhap's you could make arrangement's with a kind african to set up an account in nigeria...

Oh, Mr. Salam Mubarak was my uncle. we've been searching for him for months. I'm so glad someone has heard from good'ol uncle Mubarak, too bad he died. I guess I will just have to go collect his will.
