Dubious
offers are being circulated from alleged public officials!

As
a public service, I’m attaching a widely circulated scam you may
have seen on the Internet. While it purports to benefit its recipients,
it is actually a clever scheme to rob them. While most victims have
been elderly and feeble-minded, many who should know better have
let themselves be suckered due to rampant emotionalism. Please pass
this warning along to those you think may have fallen for this,
and explain to them that these scams, though propagated by the Internet,
are as old as human civilization.

URGENT
PLEASE READ!

A
MOST CONFIDENTIAL AND VITAL PROPOSITION FOR YOU!

To:
American patriot

From:
George W. Bush, American Top Gun Hero and Beloved President

I
regret any initial embarrassment my letter might cause you, as we
have not had any correspondence before this time. My name is George
W. Bush, and am the son of George Herbert Walker Bush, the elected
president of the United States of America. In my capacity as the
legally elected successor to my father, I am contacting you with
a proposition that will be beneficial to the both of us.

You
may have heard that terrorists stalk our land of the free. They
want to use horrible weapons of mass destruction that can be entrusted
to no one but me and nations that are friendly to me. It is my desire
and responsibility to protect you from these terrible people who
hate us because of our freedoms.

Here
is my proposition to you: if you can provide me with the permission
and the keys to enter your home and place of business without a
warrant, and to monitor your emails and the web sites you visit,
and to strip your American citizenship and subject you to deportation
(if you are lucky), or to the execution cells at Guantanamo Bay,
conveniently located in Cuba, then I will be able to protect you
from the forces of evil which are even today everywhere in our great
country. Only these measures which you will happily and patriotically
accept will ensure your continued freedom and happiness. Trust me.

Please
contact me as a matter of urgency to enable us to implement these
vital actions that only have your best interests in mind. Please
do treat this as highly confidential, so do not talk to anti-American
reporters from those Internet web sites. I would not want you to
do anything that could jeopardize our mutually beneficial relationship
of ruler and subject, which makes us both very fulfilled and prosperous.

Best
Regards,
George W. Bush, American Top Gun Hero and Beloved President
