Ive just had an e mail from what claims to be the F B I and
after accussing me of terrorist activities and of finanial
dealings, it ends by threating i have to pat back monies ive
recieved for terrorism.
Now ime treating this with utter contempt, but its all so
legitimately set up it might fool some people.

Blue Eyes hon;
It was so plausible, because i had had people this person named, offer to put money
in my bank over the past few weeks. Saying would
i set up a trust for them
So when i got this official looking e-mail from the
F B I--full with name and badge etc. etc;
If it had not been for my natural Bolshi nature i
might well have pannicked and complied.

I've wondered if it's exactly the same people who asked you to set up a trust for them, sort of a way of getting info/money out of you.
A bit like getting access to your computer by having you go to a e-mail address they quote so they can access your details.
Sorry not very clear, my brain is on a go slow this morning..

Thing is folkes
Me first i paniche,then by the third
cup o tea, what little bit o brain that stroke has
left me, begins to think.
When confused the donkey in me kicks in and
backed up by that good old salopian inter breeding
(the experts reckon by 1890 every fam; in salop was related)---Sodum comes to mind.
