This may be a serious problem.

If you send me your full name and address, professional qualifications, telephone number, bank details and mother's maiden name, I might be able to help you with it!

If you leave it alone, and time runs out, you'll be better off and I won't make any money off you!

At least you're not unstable!

I've just had an email from the United Nations (I kid you not) telling me that having understood my 'unstable situation' they've 'begged' the First Bank of Nigeria' to give me $10m - begged! That is so sweet. I hadn't realised that I was so important (or for that matter quite so unstable as to require millions to compensate me). Obviously whinging out loud about a particularly annoying client this morning has reached their ears already. All I need to do is to email the Group Managing Director of the bank on the rocketmail email address provided (surely they should be using a rocketcycle email address for me!) and tell him how much I already have in my bank account... I knew it was going to be a good day when I woke up!

Clearly Nigeria want to be in your good books for when you next save the world.  Maybe they hope you will save them first, thus preserving their infrastructure, at the expense of other countries who didn't send you $10m.

$10 million?

Would you give it to Portsmouth Football Club please?

Saving the world

Sadly no, Pompey won't be getting a cent. I'm putting it towards buying Miami Dolphins a new quarterback (as I'm getting a bit old so can't play for them myself, although obviously I'm a Jet first and foremost).

It'll take more than $10m for me to save them first! I've got to save the good ole US of A to ensure a constant supply of CSI et al and there are quite a few of them. A quick trip to Yorkshire too. The French possibly as well - they do make excellent cakes - and the Italians and Greeks (all that ancient history and I love the accents). Oh and the Spanish - they seem to get nice sunny weather. You see it's not just money that motivates me!

(But cheques made payable to Flash Gordon in large sums might, and only might, tempt me to save some of the AWebbers - I'll be picking my favourites naturally!!)
