We thought it might stop with Gotham and Hamptons, and even Departures. But no, the number of magazines for the affluent continues to rise. Their number now stands at 456, “a 407 percent over the mere 90 publications that targeted the nation???s upper class in 1997.” Which is, like, a lot.

The reason for the increase stems from an overall surge in the number of niche or targeted publications in the market, as well as the nation???s growing affluence, said Deborah Striplin, editorial director of The Standard Periodical Directory. ???We think that affluent publications are becoming more popular because more and more people are becoming affluent, think they are or want to be,??? she said.

And also, if Jason Binn can do it, well, you can see there’s nothing to scare publishers off.

Mr Kingsley,
Ivory Coast,
+225 09 34 63 03

Dear Sir/Madam,

I bid you good day and wish not to bore you with this email that comes to your unexpectedly.

Unlike the common scam emails that parade the internet, I wish to state here that I am giving you my true life state.

I was a petty trader at Nigeria where I hailed from. I was tricked into coming to Ivory Coast where I was assured of geting me into Europe in search of greener pasture. I fall into this in which I can absorb any blame that will come from whom it may concern. Because of my poor background, in which I do not have anybody for an assistance, I started my trade from the street where I grew up. I fail victim of the crook who brought me to this place because of the wealth he exihibited when he came home.

I was introduced into fraud affair by the crook who brought me to Ivory Coast, this trade hurts my human ethics and the moral being in which I was groomed. It is against my belief and my principle. This called for much hatred from the thief that brought me to this place. Because he is involve in this dubious business, he used his wicked allies to rip me all I had, I was left without money and home.

Dear Sir/Madam, I do not wish to take much of your time, I am soliciting for your financial assistance to enable me get back to my country to look for a way to restart the trade I am in. I long to get a favourable response from you in due course.

May the good Lord bless you,
Best regards,
