Insane Plutocrat Thinks Someone From Craigslist Will Go For This

Well this is the shadiest sentence ever written: “Located in the heart of DC on embassy road –where all of the embassy’s are.” Hmm, wonder if that’s near Embassy Row, where there are also a lot of embassies? Another major tip-off: “All money will be handled through money wire.” A true plutocrat would never be so tasteless as to mention the word “money,” twice! Obviously, John Edwards is behind this scam.

    The Nigerian embassy is being offered personally by the prince, who only needs a wire deposit of $25k to hold this amazing opportunity!

    I will pay you $10,000 to rent my apartment!!!! Here’s how it works. I’ll send you a check for $30,000. You then deposit that check and right-away write me a check for $20,000. Then you can stay in my fancy D.C. apartment and use the $10,000 you made on fun times in D.C.

    Can’t…navigate…too much shit on page! Where is the “next” button? Why won’t the big lady quit staring at me?

    Nigerians, John Edwards, why would anyone think they are responsible?

    The only name that comes to my mind here is Campbell Brown, but I’m not sure why.

    Damn, my one regret about leaving DC is that I’m not there now to rent out my place to nitwits for an astronomical price during Inaugura-Fest.

    I’m offering my place here in Boston for $7,000 during the inauguration. And don’t knock it—the way this thing is shaping up, that’s about as close to DC as you’re going to get. You shouldn’t oughta waited.

    Please note, there’s a 300,005 (because we can all use an extra $5) 3 br/ba listing right below that one, by the same guy. Total rip-off. Even if it is also in the heart of DC – this time, by Capitol Hill -where all the Capitals are.

    [re=201186]Larry McAwful[/re]: I’m going to counter that offer with my place for a price of $6,999 in Brookline, Bob.


    So is Jefferson County West Virginia too far out to get in on this action? Hey, its on the Brunswick MARC line.

    “you’ve got the spanish embassy … that’s on embassy road. there’s the canadian embassy … that’s on embassy road too. the chinese embassy? that’s on embassy road. there’s the australian embassy … matter of fact, there all in the same area, the embassy complex on embassy road.”

    “oh, the embassy district.”

    “that’s right.”

    I think this is the newest big three bailout plan. The auto’s will rent out Dick Shelby’s DC pad to inagural visitors and keep the proceeds.

    Sounds suspiciously like one of McCain’s places. You can get Cindy to stay the weekend for an extra $10,000.
