Re: My latest financial Venture

Actually, as funny as your response is, you did exactly what they want, verified that your email address is real, and now you will receive more spam. It's a 2 part scam for them, if the sucker believes the story, he gets scammed, and if someone replies, they get their name added to a spam list that someone will purchase.

Hey man, can I get in on this deal?

I was going to try to contact Mr. Cheng directly and outbid you. I Googled him, but apparently there are several Lan Cheng's in China.

I can put in very much money. I can't say how much for security reason.

There is a whole web site and forum of people that try to make fun of those scammers/spammers, baiting them with some fake interest in their proposals.

The part that sucks is that for every one person that does what you did, 1000 people fell for it...
