    I told them to just deduct the transfer fee from their remittance so I await the deposit to my paypal account of $4,999,900.00. :rolleyes:

    I'd be too honest to take them up on their offer. I'd just let them know that they got the wrong person, obviously a clerical error.

    I like baiting them along (on an alias), it's quite fun to do so and frustrates them greatly.

    Being rich is not what it is cracked up to be when the check is in the mail.

    Are you sure it's legit? I get a hundred of these sorts of emails a week, and none of them are real. Just be careful--It could just be someone after your money.

    EDIT: Just noticed Bertus already mentioned this. I wouldn't give them any of your information.

    Of course to OP knows that. It's fun to show those mails around though.
