What's the conversion rate from United Dollars to US Dollars? Are those like United Federation credits in Star Trek?

No self-respecting businessman would refer to his wikipedia entry as "his" website. Be careful with this one RB, if this is a fake they usually have more clues than this. ;)

okay guys. you do know that i wasn't seriously thinking that warren buffet was going to give me a bunch of money. i must get a dozen of these emails every day. this was the first one that i can remember that tried to convince me it came from a real person like warren buffet though. can't believe people fall for this stuff.

Some of these scams are pretty darned sophisticated. It's amazing how many people fall for them. They know how to make it seem real in some cases, and in other cases, some people are just plain gullible. These "Nigerian prince" scams have been going on for years, and every once in a while you'll hear about some poor unsuspecting older person has been bilked out of everything they have. It makes you wonder how they fell for it.

P.T. Barnum said that there was a sucker born every minute. I guess he was right.
