I got this email out of the cold clear November sky one day. I have not edited it one tiny little bit except to remove any identifying source. Sure it takes all kinds, but something tells me this kind ain’t my kind…

“Massive words” huh? I wonder what she was trying to say, I also wonder if this was really a Ghanan woman interested in little ole me?
Maybe you have heard about an email scam that seems to originate in Nigeria. Interestingly enough Ghana is just a little West of Nigeria with only two tiny little thin countries (Benin and Togo) between them. So if you are on a popular dating site and get an email like this, I would just delete it if I were you.
