UPDATE: Correction! Correction! Ms. Jessica Zafra sent an email to clarify that she did not write this letter. Kevin Allman is the real author.
My apologies to Ms. Zafra, Mr. Allman and everyone.
To Madame Jessica Zafra: Bravo (for this good find)!
Allman‘s Zafra’s reaction to the US economic meltdown will put to shame each and every spammer from Nigeria, they who send us endless pleas for assistance in exchange for gazillions of dollars.
Thanks to Ms. Zafra for the heads up.
Dear American, My Dear Friend:
I am Ministry of the Treasury of the Republic of America.
I need to ask you to support an urgent secret business relationship with a transfer of funds of great magnitude.

I am working with “Mr. Phil Gram,” lobbyist for UBS, who will be my replacement as Ministry of the Treasury in January. As a citizen, you may know him as the leader of the American banking deregulation movement in the 1990s. This transaction is 100% safe.
