A Credit Crunch Variation on a 419 Theme

I got this in the mail this morning. It is good to see the 419'ers are adapting
to the new world where people are out of work, or worried about work, or need
extra money. So what so you need right now? Thats right some fecking arsehole
of a con-main pretending to be from Virgin and offering you £1500 a month (at
least they got the currency right!)

[sarcasm]my faith in human nature is restored once again![/sarcasm]
