David, funny you should start a thread on these as I just did the same thing; a friend sent me the link.

We know what you're doing. We know what you're thinking. We know what websites you're looking at and what links you're opening. We have agents from Melbourne to the Mooloolaba, from the wet Tasman Sea to the arid regions of Alice Springs. But - don't worry. We aren't out to harm you. As long as you respond promptly to all requests for Western Union transfers... all will be well ;)

I was going out to work on the boat, but now I'm sitting looking at these pictures. It's mesmerising.

We never forgive and we never forget.

Consequences will never be the same, I'm telling you.
