Urinalysis, Mr. Spock?


He gave the address of a sewage treatment plant:


Abbey Road
Pity Me
Durham DH1 5FJ
(that's Glasgow, the largest city in Scotland)

He's also running a work-from home scam at that same phone number:

There, he gives his name as "John Mark".
john = client of a prostitute
mark = the victim of a confidence game or magic trick

The answer, of course, being "British-English-speaking expatriate Nigerians who are trying to sound like wealthy people, in order to be given more credence".

Yeah, my initial reaction to this email on our house mailing list was this:

'Modalities: "The ceremonial forms, protocols, or conditions that
surround formal agreements or negotiations."

It almost makes me want to write a sociology paper, or to send
him a list of obeisances he must make to the Dear Leader of our
little cult.....'
