Does anybody seriously fall for this stuff? Here is the reply I just sent off to them:

Yo Musa and Benita:

To quote Ruth Pointer: "I'm so excited and I just can't hide it!" I love sending personal information about me via responses to poorly-worded business transaction emails. Per your request:

YOUR NAME: Cherry Ride

AGE: 21
COUNTRY: The best country in the world, the frickin' US of A!
PHONE/FAX NUMBER: 312. 555-6789

The immediate response from your "finance company" or whatever will totally tweak my nipples!

Anyone taking bets as to if I get another reply from them?
