    No, it's not a scam!

    I just ordered three from that guy, and he threw in a set of knives that never need to be sharpened, free! But wait, there's more: he also turned me on to this fellow in Zimbabwe that needs some help with the former King's assets, and I am going to be rich!

    I was hesitant at first, but when the payments of 17 million, 41 million and an entire nation's gratitude came in, I was a believer!! I'm going to use the money and buy a Blur, but not from that 74 year old scammer. Mine is coming from a guy in Andorra who said he'd ship it for free.
