I replied to a posting on craigslist for a fully furnished 1 Bedroom apartment on the Beach in Santa Monica for $600 a month. Sounds too good to be true? Think again, my friend. Here is my exchange with the owner of this remarkable apartment. I think you will agree, it is a once in a lifetime deal. First, his moving email to me.

Now my reply to him:
Thank you for your email. It is also glad to Read from you. You sound like a very professionalish and honourablist man and I am sorry to hear of your misfortuning. I am send it also your wife Mary at firstname.lastname@example.org and dear Mary, I hope you are reading this electronic missive in the good faith and sympathy in which I send it, full of good faith and sympathy.
I am happy that the said apartment is still openly and wondrously available and fully furnished in full. The picture looks very very appealingly nice and I’m sure justice does not do justice to the location. I feel that as an Honest Man such as your being, I must tell you that the rent you ask is very subnumeral if not low. It is looking from below at the market asking rates. I could not exist on this earth with my good conscience of avoiding hell pay so little. The money of money of earth is not the issue of concerning for me, as I am blessed with more lucre than legions of ascetics can ever use. As I now have found a new belief religion (not to push upon you in the throat of course) I have abandonated all my possessions of earth’s valuable value. I have now donated my Luxurious Bentley and my Sporty Maserati automobile collections to a wonderful leprosy recovery facility to help the unfortunates who are also addicted to drugs and alcohol, particularly skin ointments. I am sure they will find much spiritual pleasure from driving them in their newly sober and fully-limbed states. I have decided to spend my days in joy and bliss traveling the world from what I hope will be my new home at 2101 Ocean Avenue in Santa Monica, CA 90405. As it is furnished, and you own with writing paper of title the furniture, I am able to observed my special holy religion and own no worldly goods of the world. In my poverty thence I be rich thusly in this manner.
My true faith requires me to be of help and assistance in assisting those in need by helping, such as your unfortunate and long loving wife. I am colleague with one of the top hat ear drum reconstruction surgeons north of the 65th parallel, Mr. Dubuk Topogflogani. I will be glad to pay to provide his services to repair your wife’s precious ear drum and any other sensitive tissue connected to cartilage or mucus membranes free of charge to you, your wife, to you, or to yourself. As you are painfully aware, world class ear drum reconstruction surgery is painful, and air traveling by air is difficultish at best, he must come to her bedside at my expense, which I ignore freely.
Will you require any recuperativation? Perhaps I shall assist you and your family by way of thanks and gratitude or appreciating by in staying at my
Budapest-Trained Topiarist On Site, Free for You!
holiday residence in the land of the island Hawaii in the blue Pacific Ocean? I am soon to give it to a colony of unfortunate lepers recovering from drug addiction to their painkillers and topical ointments, but you may be able to use my tropical 53-room hideaway for her to get well also. There is a full-time meat and game chef, Budapest-trained topiarist, Danish Eurythmy instructor and, of course, skin graft team on call. Tipping is not required as they have sought refugee status.
To many, I sound generous. For me, however, this is a need I have to remove myself from all the earthly possessions as my religion instructs, including my 23 unused 16g iPads with three year AppleCare. While most of my funds and valuable gold reserves will be uber-tithed to my church, what little I have left is to be designated to those I encounter who display extraordinary generosity and kindness, generousness, such as you have in your posting and offer to me of your vainglorious apartment. It is a penultimate thrill second only the spiritual death in penury I seek, cleansed of the sin of res materia.
Please send me your bank account number and passwords by return email and as good faith I will deposit the sum of $ 3,122,000 (approximated amount less chauffeur fees and internet cafe time) immediately in order for us to begin our healing journeys on our road of travel. Once I receive authorization to access your accounts, and the funds are successfully deposited by me, you will become beneficiary in my life insurance policy. I have but three months to live and I need a beneficiary at once to complete the process of obtaining a beneficiary as a beneficiary is required for the policy to be payable in full to the beneficiary.
I await your reply to my missive of infinite compassion and my astounding humility which humiliates me.
In spirit of the All Obsequious,
Tyrolian C. Legantia, Benefactor
