I found this email in my junk folder. It’s too funny not to share.
Dear Valued GPal Customer,
As some of our customers have been acutely aware of, GPal has been experiencing difficulties related to Credit Card banks holding of customer funds. These problems exist with funds from transactions prior to March 09, 2011. As a result, GPal suspended credit cards entirely on March 9, 2011, leaving us with only Checking Accounts to fund transactions.
Unfortunately, it appears that these Credit Card holds are not going to be resolved anytime soon, so GPal is taking pro-active action to raise funds to cover the entirety of the hold, fund customer accounts, and provide for future expansion.
Due to the difficulty of raising funds for a payments company in the firearm space, we are enlisting your help in this process. GPal is offering a $10,000 referral fee* to any GPal user who introduces an Investor (VC, Angel, PE firm, etc.) that leads to a deal in excess of $1million. Please send introductions to email@example.com with “Investor Introduction” in the Subject.
Please note that GPal is presently fully operational for checking account only transactions. Transactions originated on or after March 09, 2011 should now be processed within our 2-7 business day target.
GPal remains absolutely committed to providing the only pro-rights and non-discriminatory payment service in the world.

LOL! “Referral fee of $10,000 will be paid to the registered GPal user’s GPal account.”
Good luck getting that cash out. On the other hand, who would be stupid enough to give these bozos $1 million?
