Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Hello Ladies & Gentlemen

    We have a new standard being set for email based cash extraction techniques, as I discovered upon opening my email this morning in the 'stan, fcuk knows how they've got satellite tracking on the phone though :(

    Attn,
    I am very sorry for you, is a pity that this is how your life is going to end as soon as you don’t comply. As you can see we are the members of the Deadly Networks in the world, which is responsible for the bombing of twin tower’s in America on Sept. 11th and the bombing of London transport services on July 7th (AL-QUAEDA NETWORKS), I don’t have any business with you, my duty as I am mailing you now is just to KILL you and I have to do it as I have already been paid for that.

    Someone whom you called your friend wants you dead by all means, and this person have spent a lot of money in this venture, This person came to us and told me that he wanted you dead and he provided us with your name, picture and other necessary information’s we needed about you.

    So I sent my boys to track you down this including bugging of your phones with satellite tracking devices and they have carried out the necessary investigation we needed for the operation on you, and if you doubt this information am going to give you all the necessary information about you back to you in your next reply so that you can believe me, and my boys are really on you but I told them not to kill you that I will like to contact you and see if your life is important to you and the one of your family.

    I called my client back and ask him of your email address which I didn’t tell him what I wanted to do with it and he gave it to me and I am using it to contact you now. As I am writing you this mail my men are monitoring you and they are telling me everything about you. Now do you want to LIVE OR DIE? Since all program has be made and draw to kill you.

    Get back to me now if you are ready to pay some fees to spare your Life, $15,000 is all you need to spend in this process you will first of all Pay $8,000 and then I will send a tape to you which I recorded in every discussion I had with the person who wanted you dead and as soon asyou get the Tape, You will pay the remaining balance of $7,000. If you are not ready for my help, then I will carry on with my job straight-up. WARNING:

    DO NOT THINK OF CONTACTING THE POLICE OR EVEN TELLING ANYONE BECAUSE I WILL KNOW ,REMEMBER, SOMEONE WHO KNOWS YOU VERY WELL WANT YOU DEAD! I WILL EXTEND IT TO YOUR FAMILY, IN CASE I NOTICE SOMETHING FUNNY ABOUT YOUR TELLING THE SECURITY ABOUT IT BECAUSE A GOOD LOOK IS OUT YOU AT THE MOMENT.

    DO NOT COME OUT ONCE IT IS 7PM UNTIL I MAKE OUT TIME TO SEE YOU AND GIVE YOU THE TAPE OF ALL DISCUSSION WITH THE PERSON WHO WANT YOU DEAD THEN YOU CAN USE IT TO TAKE ANY LEGAL ACTION. GOOD LUCK AS I AWAIT YOUR REPLY.


    Now then, what should I do about this? Treat it as a proper death threat perhaps? Just play along and give them the money? Your answers would be greatly appreciated.

    I am proper shyteing my pants here :D
     
  2. There is a forum dedicated to this type of thing.
    It is called 419eater.com and they would be very interested in this.
     
  3. Don't you hate it when employees can't spell the company name correctly?

    It's just such poor corporate branding.

    I can understand your fear. Where did you say you were, Afghanistan? I bet you're not exactly surrounded by heavily armed Toms then?

    Oh wait :D
     
  5. Clearly this fool does not realise that you are a member of one of the World's 'Deadly Networks'.
     
  6. This just seems to be a very bad attempt to extract money from you.

    If I was you, I would just ignore it, but if you are really that worried, contact the police. Even though it is badly written and a little bit dubious, it is still a death threat, so it is against the law.

    Failing that, deposit the money in my account and I will sort it all out for you….
     
  7. What a great read! Brightened my morning up!
     
  8. Tell him that as you are currently in the 'stan, he will have to join the queue!
    And inform him that you do not intend to go out after 19.00hrs unless you are heavily armed and with a few similarly tooled up mates.
     
  9. Cheers Monkey271,

    Send me your sort code & Account number and the 500 quid service charge. I'll stick the money in your account tomorrow

  10. Why not open a hotmail account (or yahoo, whatever) anonymously and reply to him? Great prospects for loads of fun!

    Of course they may work out who sent it by using unique return addresses but you'll probably work that out fairly quickly.
     
  11. Why you ?

    Looks like a standard nigerian style scam to me, is the hitman also a prince with one billion dollars tied up in a rogue state who as soon as he over throws its evil dictatorship will have access to it, in the mean time if you could just lend him some money.

    e mail this reply " Poke it up your arrse you cock"
     
  12. Oi, Krazy Ivan, post up the E-mail address of the sender so we can start sending replys back to him, see how long we can spin the sucker out for.

    419 eater gets my vote too. And they will post results.
     
  14. If you do decide to reply 419 eater recommend Googlemail.
    Apparently Gmail does not show an IP address.
     
  15. For anonymous email I recommend Hushmail. It provides quite secure email communications, including on the fly encryption, and receivers of your mails will only see a Canadian based IP address. Rated.
