Post Heck! I need help too darn it?

Just received this in the mail;

[quote] Hello-
My name is Al K. I am a single Dad from New Jersey with 2 children, ages 6 and 9.

The reason for this e-mail that is that I am at the end of my rope trying to make ends meet. If you are skeptical about this message and do not want to read any more, please accept my apologies and delete this message.

My children and I are having a really tough time keeping our head above water. And I have set aside my pride, after doing everything else that I know, to ask for help from strangers.

I have a job during the day, and to be home at night, I have tried “internet opportunities” and “work at home businesses” that have turned up fruitless.

My children have not had a vacation in years and I want desperately for them to enjoy this summer by sending them to the CYO camp at the local church this summer so they can enjoy themselves as children should.

So, what I am asking is that if you can find it in your heart and home to assist us in any way possible, we would be ever grateful. If it’s $10 or $5 or just $1, every little bit helps. I continue to work as hard as I can, but am falling short with each day.

This is NOT a scam, please do not report this to yahoo or PayPal. I am sorry for the intrusion, but this is my last hope. Please just delete this message. I will not be contacting you again.

If you read this far, I thank you for your time and if you are unable to assist, of course I can understand that. However, if you can spare a few dollars, I have set up a PayPal account with the e-mail AK07204@yahoo.com, if you have your own PayPal account and you can click here:

If you do not know what PayPal is, it is a way to pay anyone with an e-mail address money. It is what Ebay uses for their auction payments for almost all of their 3 million customers. It is more secure, private and confidential than checks or credit cards, which is why they use it. If you are interested in finding out about PayPal, you can register at PayPal.com, and then send funds using my above e-mail address. You can click here:

If you would still like to help, but do not want to use PayPal, please e-mail me at AK07204@yahoo.com and I will send you my home address.

Well, that’s it, I appreciate your taking the time to read this and anything you can do to help up get back on our feet and for my children would be appreciated.

May God Bless You and your kind heart!

Sincerely,

Al K.

If anyone knows "Al" out there tell him that my wife and I work full time and we have NEVER had a holiday either, thats right never...I always cash out my holiday time. Also "Al" I have three kids so my advice to you is to GET IN LINE LIKE THE REST OF US!!!!

I'm going to come and visit your lazy butt "Al" and I'm going to show you exactly what pain and suffering is.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Has anyone seen my baseball bat... <img src="confused.gif" border="0">

"Please don't report me to....." Come on!!! This isn't a scam?!?!?!? Why don't you want us to report you if you are just begging. Last time I checked, begging isn't illegal.

Begging is the latest in easy money schemes. A gal from N.Y. payed off her credit card bills this way. My advice,Al K,(alkie?) get a tin cup for you and your heathens and stand in front of the local Walgreens drug store. Man, I am a grump in the morning... <img src="graemlins/evil.gif" border="0" alt="[evil]" />

I hope "Al" realizes that God sees all and he sees "Al" using church camp as a scam. If it is a scam, here's "Al's" one way ticket to Hell!! <img src="graemlins/evil.gif" border="0" alt="[evil]" /> <img src="graemlins/pain.gif" border="0" alt="[pain]" />
