    Maybe George is hurting after that last Indiana Jones movie.

    No, a man who invented the sith can't think of something that diabolical.

    Don't respond - it is obviously an e-mail scam from some sick moron trying to prey on the backs of our service members. I got that e-mail in my in box about 5 minutes ago and spotted it as a scam right away. Everyone in the military has a permanent military e-mail address and you can be sure it isn't anything that ends in "aol.com" or "hotmail.com". The military members fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan (who include members of my own family right now) have everything they need, and if there is an emergency situation they have places like the USO, the Red Cross and whatever family support function is attached to their particular military unit (for the Air Force it's Air Force Aid Society and the Airmen & Family Readiness Center) and they would never start e-mailing total strangers to ask for help. I would either just delete it or report it as a fraud & phishing scam...

    General Kenobi. Years ago, you served my father in the Clone Wars. Now he begs you to help him in his struggle against the Empire. I regret that I am unable to present my father's request to you in person, but my ship has fallen under attack and I'm afraid my mission to bring you to Alderaan has failed. I have placed information vital to the survival of the Rebellion into the memory systems of this R2 unit. My father will know how to retrieve it. You must see this droid safely delivered to him in Alderaan. This is our most desperate hour. Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi. You're my only hope.

    Re: George Lucas is trying to scam me!

    I seriously thought that no one is dumb enough to fall for these types of things, I bumpt in to a local with whom Im aquainted just last week and he told me who he was "conned in to sending some one $750 , in order to help them in which he would receive $1000000 for doing so, ,
    \ he told me about the email in which conned him and it was just like the O P but some one other than George Lucas's name ,,

    So it goes to show, some people are still gulable enough to get fooled
