PROPOSAL FOR URGENT ASSISTANCE


Dear Sir: I must solicit your confidence in this transaction. I am a high placed official with the Department of Finance Affairs in Lagos, Nigeria. I and two other colleagues are in need of a silent foreign partner whose bank account we can use to transfer the sum of $18,000,000. This are monies left by a barrister who died tragically in a plane crash last year. . .

Sound familiar? Congratulations. You have been selected to become a mugu, an expression African con artists use to describe the targets of their e-mail scams. But they drew a bead on the wrong guy when they started spamming Steve H. Graham. Like many Internet users, Graham eventually got tired of receiving mugu mail and decided to fire back at his wannabe swindlers.

Armed with a scathing sense of humor, Graham quickly turned the tables on his tormenters—with side-splittingly hilarious results. Whether he's referring to his fictional lawyer Biff Wellington, complaining about the injury he received while milking a lactating sloth, or offering the Preparation H helpline as his phone number, Graham—using aliases such as Wile E. Coyote, Barney Rubble, and Herman Munster—offers proof that spamming the spammers is the best revenge.

Steve H. Graham is a retired attorney. Since childhood, he has been fighting for truth, justice, and free movie passes. For each copy sold of this book, he will donate 100 percent of the proceeds to himself. He is also the author of the cookbook Eat What You Want and Die Like a Man. He lives in Miami.

This guy has it all...Stamina and humor to make these idiots really work! It makes for great water cooler conversation and a good book for my prankster buddies to take notes!

As a loyal reader of Steve H. Graham¿s websites over the years, I knew I had to own this book. It kept me laughing throughout on several occasions, I had to set the book down to keep from waking my neighbors with my chortles and snorts. I can hardly wait for his next project to hit the shelves! Steve H. Graham evidently had a lot of fun exercising his rapier wit as he created this tome ¿ his verbal torrent of torment flows wonderfully the responses by the 419 spammers are, well, written by spammers. I especially like the inserted paragraphs where Steve H. explains his intentions or thoughts about the spammers it makes some of the exchanges more digestible when Steve H.¿s characters throw incredibly absurd bait to the spammers and get replies. If you¿ve ever received this type of unsolicited email, BEWARE, if you buy this book, you might be tempted to reply ¿ or, if you are lazy, buy this book and laugh maniacally as Steve H. takes a swing at the spammers for you!

This is a very fun book to read. I enjoyed reading it, when I was able to stop laughing from the page before. Its a book that as your walking through your day, you will remember a comment and start laughing. Highy recommend and very enjoyable. Buy this book.
