Well, all they offer me (despite my having filled in the questionnaire) are posts that have nothing to do with my qualifications and experience.
Plus, I said I wasn’t willing to travel, and they only offer me things in the USA.

I can’t say for sure that that’s where the scammers got my address, but I have a secondary email which I use to sign up to anything that seems dodgy, and it only took two days after I joined there to start receiving the scam emails.

Sadly, only about half of them get directed to my junk mail.

This is the only bit of money-related spam I’ve ever had…

Attn:  Your Humble Goodself.

RE: OFFER FROM THE VATICAN CHURCH, VATICAN CITY.

Greetings to you from the office of the Holy Father of the Vatican Church,
Vatican City, Rome Italy.

We are writing this letter to you today as a Holy offer/opportunity to work
for the Vatican Church, Vatican City Rome Italy, as our only official secret
distributor of charity funds to our several registered charity organizations
around this global earth with topmost secrecy.

In August 9 1903 when Giuseppe Sarto assumed office as the second pope of
the Vatican Church Vatican city as Pope Pius PP. X, he included a new
amendment to the constitution of the Vatican Church, which relates that as a
result of the continuous rising several cases of corruption and mis-use of
the funds allocated by the Vatican Church to charity organizations, via the
power of the Cardinals of the Vatican Church, the appointment of the
official distributor of funds allocated by the Vatican Church for
distribution to registered charity organizations, MUST be secretly issued to
a non Vatican Church individual/personnel, who must be unknown by all living
person

LOL Mouse, your spam is so cool!

I have no idea why I keep getting these spam/scams.  I probably have signed up for something somewhere, and all the scammers got my email address.  Fortunately, the majority of the less fun ones go straight to my junk mail folder.

Do you think Hulk should take advantage of this offer? Hulk thinks Hulk could make money and not have to live off the “stipend” that The Avengers still pay Hulk because they are afraid Hulk will come over and raid the refrigerator and make Jarvis cook a turkey for Hulk again.

Hulk has never told you people how nice Jarvis is. Jarvis is very nice. He is the Avengers’ butler but he is not like “Jeeves” because he does not have a website called AskJarvis or anything like that but Hulk thinks he is better because Hulk doesn’t have to type on the computer to ask Jarvis things like “Why do rainbows make Hulk happy?” or “Can you please make some more Yorkshire pudding?”

No! He has a blog, click on the link!

Chewbacca has one too. I don’t know if he’s been getting scam emails or not though because I don’t understand him. Maybe David can translate it for us.

Well at least it’s pretty easy to write Chewy’s blog, but i’m surprised he’s got the digit dexterity to operate a keyboard.

My Dear K**m,

I am a lawyer.I am the personal attorney to Late Mr. Kenneth K**m, a National of your Country, who used to work as a contractor with Crystal Construction Company Inc.,herein after shall be referred to as my client. On the 21st of April 2002, my client, his wife and their three children were involved in a car accident along Sagamu express road. All occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost their lives. Since then I have made several enquiries to your embassy to locate any of my clients extended relatives and this has also proved unsuccessful.

After these several unsuccessful attempts to locate any member of his family, hence I contacted you. I am contacting you to assist in repatriating the money and property left behind by my client before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable by the bank where this huge deposit were lodged. Particularly, the bank where the deceased had an account
valued above US$10,000,000.00 has issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have the account confiscated and the funds returned to the government.

Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over two years now I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased since you have the same last name, so that the proceeds of this account valued above US$10,000,000.00 can be paid to you and then you and I can share the money, 60% to me and 40% to you. I have all
the necessary legal documents that can be used to back up any claim we may make. All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us see this deal through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law.

Please get in touch with me by my email, send to me your telephone and fax numbers to enable us discuss further about this transaction.

I await your urgent response and positive attention in this circumstance.Please write back through this email address (.(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address))

Best regards,

Barrister David Chiji, LLB, LLM, BL,SAN
Attorney at Law.
