David Jones (didn't he used to be in The Monkees?) wrote to me today, with an entirely ludicrous proposition.
"Mr Jones" claims to represent Ken Lay, the disgraced ex CEO of Enron. In a delightful turn of phrase, "Mr Jones" notes that Mr Lay is "presently dead". I assume that this means we may expect him to rise from the dead at some stage in the future?
Anyhoo, "Mr Jones" wants me to help him commit fraud and lay claim to $9M (which of course doesn't exist).
He assures me that this fraud will be perfectly legitimate!
What a load of bollocks!
