The Arab World Loves Us Now

This came into the tip line, and boy am I glad it did!

Dear Friend,

Good day to you I got your contact from a Business Directory, and I decided to contact you directly for the sake of business.
I am Mr.Kazim Obaid Kazim,the Credit Officer with a reputable bank here in U. A. E.I am sending you this mail because I want us to carry out a business
transaction of ($9.5million)together in my bank.

Mr.Kazim Obaid Kazim,
I'm really glad that we now have a President who is liked and respected abroad. Back when George W. Bush was in office, do you think a reputable bank in the Emirates would have any interest at all doing business with the likes of us? I'm a Zionist Christian, after all. But now, with Obama, all things are possible. This is really change we can believe in!


  1. All right! You know it's got to be legit, because no self-respecting scammer would use the same first and last name, right? Right?

  2. Maybe we could get him together with the Teacher's Union from the previous post - they could help each other out and it would all be the result of Obama's Compassionate Empathy!

  3. Dear Friend,

We reserve the right to delete comments, but the failure to delete any particular comment should not be interpreted as an endorsement thereof.

In general, we expect comments to be relevant to the story, or to a prior comment that is relevant; and we expect some minimal level of civility. Defining that line is inherently subjective, so try to stay clear of insulting remarks. If you respond to a comment that is later deleted, we may take your response with it. Deleting your comment isn't a personal knock on you, so don't take it as such.

We allow a variety of ways for commenters to identify themselves; those who choose not to do so should take extra care. Absent any prior context in which they may be understood, ironic comments may be misinterpreted. Once you've earned a reputation for contributing to a conversation, we are likely to be more tolerant in those gray areas, as we'll understand where you're coming from.
