I received a somewhat surprising campaign e-mail from Delaware-based gubernatorial candidate Rick Hill this morning. In part, it read:
First I must solicit your confidence in this transaction; this is by virtue of its nature as being utterly confidential and top secret.
Though I know that a transaction of this magnitude will make any one apprehensive and worried, but I am assuring you that this is real and genuine.
Let me start by first introducing myself properly to you. I am CHUCK DENOWH, Director General, Office of the Presidency, Debt Management and Payment Commission in the Republic of Ghana, I head a five-man tender Board in charge of Foreign Contract Approvals and Payments and I am a 53 year old man, married with 4 children.
I came to know you in my search for a reliable and reputable person through OUR DELAWARE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE DIRECTORY.
Sir, if you can simply prove your commitment to our cause with a small donation today, we promise you untold riches, to be deposited in your name at THE FIRST BANK OF DELAWARE.
It’s possible this whole real estate scam thing has affected him more profoundly than he realizes.
