I wish I had time to mess with this one, I really do. I even have backstory for why I need the money and don't have a phone: I lost my job and my hearing in a terrible plucking accident at the local chicken factory two years ago. And alas, I have not been able to find work since because of the economy and the fact that employers are reluctant to hire someone who can't hear. It's not like Nigerian scammers know about the ADA, right?
I could probably string this guy along for months if I wanted to. I've studied the methods of the 419 Eaters and could play the game pretty well. If you click the link, get comfy. The letters section is particularly hilarious--but also long.
But, alas. I have 44,500 words of fiction I could actually sell to write in the next 29 days. They will not write themselves.
