Sounds legit...

Florian said...

You should send him $400 yellabucks.

Chandler said...

There's a great site out there of people fucking with these guys. Turning it around and getting them to send pictures and money. Knowlton started doing it once... but like most things he got bored and gave up.

Alison said...

Meet the real Ronald T Hosko

Brian L. said...

It's legit because he has a mustache.

barflett said...

Jesus Bull. Fucking deadbeat.

Alison said...

I find it ironic that the real Ronald T Hosko, according to his FBI profile, has the following specialties in his background:
* white-collar crime
* advance fee and Ponzi schemes
* financial crimes
* extortion

They really picked someone who wouldn't know how to look into the misuse of their own name.

Chandler said...

Since it's a Nigerian 419 Scam... there's really nothing Ronnie Hosko can do about it. Even with them using his name.

bull said...

That lends some credence to the email. His background is in the areas that he is writing me to protect myself from "arrest". Give the FBI $400 and they'll forget that I'm wanted for a 10.5 million dollar scheme...times are tough for the feds

Alison said...

Bull, I can't believe that the you received $10.5 million from the Nigerians and you've been holding out on us. You've made the donkey sad. :'(

Nate Dawg said...

Pretty sure the FBI would know what company you work for...but I agree with Geoff, sounds legit to me. Better listen up...

Smithkey said...

I used to get offers from Nigerians all the time when I was selling a lot of electronics on ebay. Fake emails saying the money has been sent through Western Union and cleared. Then asking me to send the package ASAP so it would arrive in time for their sons birthday and even offering to have a prepaid package delivered to my house.

After they fucked up my auctions countless times I started to play dumb and would allow them to send the prepaid shipping boxes to my house (which they actually did). Often times I would mail my garbage to them, sometimes just a little note, and sometimes nothing at all. In the end I was happy to know that I at least cost them some money to have a box of my trash mailed to them.

April (tall) said...

Smithkey...that is awesome! Bull, I think you should ask the Nigerian for an overnight box that you can put money in and then take a large crap in a bag, put it in the box, and send it on it's way.

bull said...

Pretty sure it is against the law to mail fecal matter. If I did that the real FBI would be after me lol

YellowBird said...

Plus it would probably cost more than $20 to ship one of Bull's monster turds.

FRANK said...

I think this is how Schwack got started...

Brian L. said...

Can you send urine??

bull said...

Oops I was wrong, it is legal to mail urine and fecal matter, just have to spend a little extra on the packaging.

Can you mail a person? I think that would work. Maybe the real Ronald T Hosko?

Alison said...
