A mailing received from Pastor-Geneve, Switzerland, (with US address in
Florida) offers an offshore diamond account as a hedge against
inflation,with consistent growth in value, and shows picture of three
colored diamonds valued at $250,000. Ten foot pole?

Large Colored diamonds are selling for record prices and didn't even blink when the economy went to hell. They easily have weathered the storm

Lots of things are selling for record prices. :)
Natural pearls.
Kashmire saphs.
fine Colombian emerald.
Burmese jade and Mogok ruby at Chinese auction
These items were most likely not purchased through an online offer to buy goods as a "hedge against inflation".
:lol: :lol:

In case I know the daughter of the former king of Nigeria* that needs some help to transfer ~250 million dollars from that country. She offered me 25 million US$ to use my bank account. Maybe she had bought some colored diamonds to offer as well. :lol:

* Oh, wait, today is (really: I'm reading from my mailbox) a former** US army sergeant who discovered 750 million $ in Iraq. Since she now is in Afghanistan and needs to move the money, she needs my help! The mail was sent from a Chinese address, I see. Is this a cheap Chinese copy of a "Nigerian scam"? :lol:

** but if she is a "former" sgt, why is she still in Afghanistan? :D

civilian security employee, that takes care of being in afghanistan; but that pole had better be very long. I still like all the "Rasmussens" who have died intestate in Nigeria with millions of dollars in a secret account.

And, they were ALL related to someone named Barbra Voltaire, who is the only surviving benefactor!

That is really odd. We must be long lost kin because they are all MY relatives too! ;)

I must be on the wrong spam list, all I get are things to enhance parts of myself I didn't even know I had! :wink:
