I get a couple of these a week.  I thought it would be amusing to post these for all to enjoy and make tons of money from too!!  wacky115.gif

Dear friend,

 

I am Dr.Shabalala Kampala,the Former Economic&Financial Adviser to the incumbent Zimbabwean President,Mr.Robert Mugabe,a dictator who has been in Power since the independence of the country in 1980.

 

I am right now seeking Asylum somewhere safer,because the President wants me dead because I am one of the new advocates of power change,and he would not hear of this,especially since I threatened to initiate the process of returning all his stolen funds scattered around Europe,due to the fact that my name was used in syphoning the money out of Zimbabwe as his front.

 

Where I now need your help is that since I am now  seeking Asylum,and I cannot move around freely,and also cannot return the money.I now intend to use the money for myself and my family.So,I will need your help to take control of the money until such a time when my situation is better.Therefore if you are interested in working with me,then you should quickly send me your direct phone&fax numbers,address and other relevant information to make this transfer effective.

 

The money in question is US$45Million.

 

I will wait to hear from you urgently.

 

Yours truly.

 

Dr.Shabalala Kampala.

I just talked my sister in law from sending a 3600.00 money order to somebody in Tennessee I think.

She answered an add for 2 mint condition seadoo's.

The whole thing smelled fishy and when I started reading the correspondence, I saw discrepancies

in the language translation.  She's canadian and wouldn't have caught it.

They had all the key things. Husband died in Afghanistan,  her and her daughter. Tugging on the heart strings.

Then "why you not respond?" Busted. There were a few more in there.

I hate scum bags.  :reallymad:

I've got a friend that works at a Rite aid. They do money orders and western union. This little old deaf lady came in trying to send 2500.00 and something triggered a red flag. They wrote out that it was a scam. Somebody was targeting deaf people and telling them they had won the "deaf lottery". All they had to do was send x amount of dollars for processing. She had already sent them 3k or something like that.

I just got an almost identical one of these over the fax. Except it was Mrs Ruby Addo Mills.

She's 95 million though. The bigger the amount, the more likely it is to be real right?

I think I'll sign up.  ::)

Cool...here is a new one I got this afternoon:

BENIN BUSINESS AND FINANCIAL LAW ATTORNEYS

BENARD FASSASI CHAMBERS & ASSOCIATES, L.L.B, L.L.M

LEGAL SOLICITORS AND LAWYERS OF THE SUPREME COURT OF BENIN,

404 ADOGLITTA, AKPAKPA COTONOU, BENIN REPUBLIC.

Hello my friend,

 

 

I am Barrister Benard Fassasi, English speaking Beninoise, Solicitor and Financial Attorney/Consultant. I was moved to contact you based on the present condition of things here. There was a foreigner who registered with my Legal firm as his personal Attorney and he was a stock broker as well as a one time secret agent for importing oil from overseas for our former Ministers and also a construction contractor.

 

 

So, on June 2003 my client made a fixed deposit for US$9,500,000.00 (Nine Million, Five Hundred Thousand US Dollars Only) in a Bank here in Benin with standing statement/agreement with the bank that all correspondence in respect to the fixed deposit contract must be sent to him through my humble chambers. Upon maturity, the routine notification was sent to me, which I dispatched to his forwarding address as usual without a reply.

 

 

After a month, I sent a reminder which I received from the bank without any reply again. Finally, I discovered from my client's contract employee that he died with his family in the Benin Republic December 26, 2003 plane crash. He died without making any WILL and all attempts to trace his relatives were fruitless.

 

 

I also discovered that he did not declare any kin or relations in all his official documents, including his fixed deposit contract with the bank. Hence I seek your consent to present you to this bank as the next of kin based on the official letter I just received from his bankers reminding me that BENINOISE LAW states that at the expiration of ten (10) years the money will be reverted to the ownership of the BENINOISE Government if I do not confirm the next of kin to claim the fund.

 

 

Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand in as the next of kin to my deceased client since you share the same surname and a foreigner so that the fruits of this old man's labor will not go into the hands of some corrupt government officials.

 

 

Note that this transaction is simple and risk free because I will provide expert legal services that will guarantee the successful execution of this deal. If you are interested, please contact me as soon as possible through phone, I shall provide you with more details and how we shall proceed with the claims. I expect you to observe utmost confidentiality and be rest assured that this transaction would be profitable for both of us. Thanks as I wait for your reply.

 

 

Best regards,

 

 

Hon. Barrister Benard Fassasi (Esq)

Dear my worthy fellow,

I am Mr. Richard Duke, a Legal practitioner based in London, United Kingdom and the personal Attorney to Late Mr. Roland Lake who was formerly a private investor/ realtor with the Frank Howard Allen Realtors before his death, hereinafter shall be referred to as my client. Couple of years ago, my client and his wife along with their two children were among victims of Boeing 737 Airline crash that claim the lives of all occupants.

 

Since then, I have made several enquiries from the embassy to locate his next of kin or any of his extended relatives, but all to no avail. My client made a deposit in a Bank at London valued presently at US$10,500,000.00 (Ten Million and Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) and the bank has issued me an official notification to appoint  the next of kin or beneficiary who will benefit this funds, otherwise the account will be confiscated within the next fifteen(15) working days.

 

Since I have been unsuccessful to locate any of my late client's relatives, I seek your consent to permit me present you as the next of kin/ beneficiary of my late client's estate so that the proceeds of this account would be transferred to you in a smmoth and legitimate means.

 

Already, I have set out modalities for achieving my aim of appointing you as the bonafide next of kin as well as transfer the money out of United Kingdom, for us to share the money in the ratio of 50% for me and 40% to you. We shall collectively donate the remaining balance of 10% to Haiti Relief Organizations.

 

It is my intention to achieve this transfer in a legitimate way, all I required from you is your honest Co-operation, confidentiality and trust to enable us see this transaction through. This is a very legal business that I am 100% sure of its success and is absolutely risk free.

 

Kindly signify your willingness to assist by sending me an email for further procedures relating to this transaction. The email shall include the below information:

 

1. Your full name

2. Your telephone and fax numbers.

3. Your Full address.

4. Your age and occupation.

This isn't an email/internet scam, but in my opinion, this is bordering on mail fraud.

I get these every month or so and they just piss me off.

 

On the outside, they try to make it look all kinds of official, even stating the penalties if someone interferes with the delivery (gosh, a nice reminder of federal laws relating to all mail delivery).

Inside is nothing more than someone trying to sell me an over priced, useless extended warranty.

I don't know how anyone would think I would buy anything from someone using this type of "sales technique". I wonder how many people fall for this?
