Who would divorce a woman like that?

I'd reply, in bad English, stating that you have forwarded his letter to 10 people and look forward to receiving the $9,200.

However, if you could reply and wanted to be creative, you might respond by letting him know: "Hey BT38, I'm a practicing polygamist", so which wife are we talking about?

Iíve heard this prank ascribed to several different famous writersóIíve also heard Oscar Wilde said that if you sent 5 such telegrams, 4 out of 5 receivers would vanish.

Iím doubting that Doyle, my classmate Edgar, or Wilde ever pulled such a prank or made such a suggestion.

But Dirkís scammer is following in the tradition.
