d’Ivoire, He made a deposit of US$10.5 Millions Dollars.This money was for the purchase of a new cocoa procession machine and other factory, Unfortunately he did not meet his target before his untimely death.

Since security here can no longer be guaranteed and I have lost my Husband to the rebels.I seek your aid, to stand as my husband’s business partiner and the beneficiary of the money so that the bank can effect this money in your account.

The bank has given me requirements I should forward to them:

1. Your full name, contact postal address
2. Your phone and fax numbers
3. Occupation

please if you are willing to assist me and my only son Ken, indicate your interest in replying soonest.
I will give you 15% of the total share when transferred, then 5% for any expense on the cause of transfer.I need us to have voice communication for more clearification. Please call me: +22507478721.

Don’t try to e-mail them back to tell them where they can stick their spam…..All it got me was a few moments of satisfaction, and approximately 1,000 more e-mails arriving in my inbox for several months afterward.

Feel free to reply to Susan, then Oppie! smile

Wicked, I’ve never been stupid enough to email these scammers back.  I still manage to get quite a lot of spam though.  No doubt they harvested my email from somewhere where I needed to use an email address to join something.  Can’t figure out what, though!

I also got this one today.  I’m not too sure what the deal is…It looks as though I helped out this guy before, and now I’m getting an undisclosed sum out of it…

Dear friend.

Compliments of the season and God’s blessings.

I am glad to inform you that I have successfully transferred the funds under the co-operation of a new partner from Paraguay.And presently am in Paraguay for some investment projects and medical check up with my own share of the total sum. as you should understand that during the period of processing the transfer that my health situation was very poor.
Meanwhile, I did not forget all your past efforts and attempts to assist
me in transferring the funds despite that it failed us some how along the way.
Now I will like you to contact my secretary who is right now in Cotonou
Republic of Benin,

his name is SHADE KOVO his email:(.(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address))
Telephone +229 97 18 02 62

And ask him to send you the total sum of One Million Euro Bond cheque
which I kept for you, for your compensation for all the past efforts and
attempts to assist me in this matter as I am a very strong and born again
christian and will never easily forget all your passt efforts to assist no
matter that i was not able to get it conclude with you.I appreciated all your efforts at that time very much. So feel free and get in touched with my secretary SHADE KOVO and instruct him where to send the money to you.

Please do let me know immediately you receive it so that we can share the joy
after all the sufferies at that time. In the moment,I am very busy here because
of the investment projects and my health which me and my new partners are
having at hand. Finally, remember that I had forwarded instruction to my secretary on your behalf in respect to that matter as well, So feel free to get in touch with him in respect to that so that he will send the amount to you without any delay

I’m like a light bulb…I have glaring flashes of brilliance followed by dark moments of stupidity.  I’m just trying to figure out who’s controlling the switch.

Well, this one isn’t about winning the lottery, but it is very suspicious nonetheless. It’s set up to look like a notification from the job site my resume is posted on, they have their logo and everything. Except my job site is a .com, not a .ca (even though it’s a canadian site).

I also have my doubts that they are indeed a UK company wink

Arson and incendiary devices?  That sounds about right for you, Boo.

As for the part in the middle, I suppose that they’re trying to raise public interest in that company.

It’s one of those emails trying to get you to buy cheap stocks that won’t do anything and will just make you waste your money.

The opening and closing portions seem to be random quotes or lines from somewhere to make it look like a legitimate email to spam filters.  And apparently it worked?
