    Good Day,
    Compliments of the day!
    I got your contact on my private search for a reliable and trusted person
    to handle a transaction of this nature. I know that the contents of this
    mail might sound so strange, but I want to assure you that every word of it
    is true

    Sadly, My mother died of cancer 3 months ago and was buried in England.
    Prior to her death, she handed me over a certificate meant for a secret
    deposit which my father made in a security company in Europe, the deposit
    that worth US$25,000,000 ( Twenty five million U.S dollars) this was the
    money paid to his corporation by its overseas company in the heat of the
    conflict. He made this savings on his name with the hope of converting it to
    his personal use, at the end of the war but was killed when the conflict
    intensified as a result of his opposition to the rebel forces. I have
    contacted the security company to confirm the deposit and establish
    ownership.

    Due to the death of my mother and the return of peace in Sierra-Leone,I
    have decided to solicit for the participation of an honest and trust worthy
    person or company that will assist in the transfer and business
    re-investment of the money. I can not do it alone due to my present social
    status and total ignorance of the business world. You will be given a
    negotiable percentage at the end of the transaction.

    If you are interested in the above proposal, contact me immediately through the above e-mail address for more details. You must maintain absolute confidentiality to ensure success.

    Best Regards.
    Kevin Kamara

    What are the chances! I'm in the exact same situation as Kevin. I had to sell my email address to pay for basic sanitation (palm leaves mainly), but you can contact me through PM.

    Yeah, sadly it's the one I use as spam bait to keep my business sites free of this kind of trash.

    Works a charm, though!

    Haha, or the REAL one from the FBI saying the first one was fake.

    "We do not send unsolicited e-mails..."

    YEAH ****ING RIGHT! They sent me an unsolicited e-mail to tell me that they don't send unsolicited e-mails...*bangs head on wall*

    One guy over on my ski forum loves to bait these guys.

    He posted one of his exploits on the forum and it's been archived into perpetuity. You have to check it out - one of the funniest things I have ever read. It fairly lengthy but I was almost crying the first time I read it, it made me laugh so hard.
