Self-Portrait 3

So...

About a year and a half ago I created a new gmail account. I made it to avoid cluttering up my primary email address after I joined a few Mandalorian costuming boards, so I decided to see if I could get an account under the name of my old character from Dave's Star Wars campaign. Turns out I could, so I did. I don't use it that much and it doesn't see that much traffic, but last week I visited the boards again for the first time in a while, which made me think about the email address again, so I went and checked it.

In my inbox there were four pieces of email from the boards, and a piece of email from "Miss Marram Mohammed". Her father, incidentally, was a highly reputable business magnet. He died suddenly, and left her a large sum of money, which she wants to bring to America, she needs my help, blah blah yakkity-smakkity blah blah blah. A Nigerian 419 scammer, obviously, but I am mightily -- MIGHTILY -- tempted to answer the email completely in character and offer the services of myself and the other members of my team to assist in making sure she can hold on to the money and in apprehending (or, you know, killing) the "uncle" that she blames for her father's untimely death.
