Mr. Koncheski,

Greetings! Thank you so much for responding to me in such a comprehensive manner. On the internet, you never know what kind of people you are dealing with but I feel reassured after your email.

Are you in Ireland for business? An ex-girlfriend of mine moved there a few years ago to work with homeless people. Reading your email further I see that you do have an Electronics and clothing's store there so I assume it is on business. Has Ireland been hurt by the worldwide recession the way the United States have? I suppose we can talk about that later.

I think I am very qualified for the position, and in fact was offered a similar one a few weeks ago. The employer never responded after I wrote him to confirm my possible employment. I would been thrilled to accept your mails and packages - though less so if "mails" is indeed supposed to be mail and not a common misspelling of "males."

There would be no issue with me staying at home to receive your packages. In fact, I have been under house arrest for the last two weeks and should be until well into the next year. Do not let this present me as a criminal though - I was only sentenced to this fate after protesting outside of the North Irish embassy in New York. It was a politically motivated arrest.

In case you are worried that I will not be able to shop for Electronics and clothing's, I actually know several former members of the Irish Republican Army who are living underground here and I'm sure would be able to shop for me, and by extension you. The only catch is that since I will have to split the income with them, $350 a week will not be suitable for my needs. Instead I would ask for a modest increase to $3500 a week. This number may seem large, but it is an easier price to pay than your own life - as my Irish compatriots know many people in the homeland who could make a visit to your Electronics and clothing's store.

You say that you will return to the US in November 2010, no doubt after the President is forced to imprison several Republican members of Congress after disappointing midterm election results. Please be sure that you indicate yourself as a Democrat or Democratic Socialist upon entering the country. I would hate to see you rounded up in the modern purge of 2010-2011.

Thank you so much for your consideration. I hope to hear from you soon!



  1. I am going to preemptively tattoo "Democratic Socialist" on my forearm in anticipation for the purge.

  2. Hahah!! I've said a lot of crazy things in my scam baits, but I have never threatened terrorism!!! Bravo!!!!

  3. looks like stephen's not the only one with two jobs!

  4. I almost forgot to read this! I saw some website on stumble upon where somebody replied to a similar "scam." They sent them a bunch of broken computers w/ feces on them and the person actually sent them money. So maybe you should send them some feces computers or "compoopters."
