    Check out the website. This loser's gone to some effort. What does worry me is that I go to seome length to keep this e-mail account from people like this and don't use it to sign up for anything. Anyone else have a similar experience? Feel free to send him warm replies in the way that only ARRSE can.

    Oh well, I'm off to collect my half a million pounds. See you poor people later.

  4. No, but I regularly get emails from nice people, albeit ones who can't speel very well offering me millions and trillions of dollars if I just send them my details and a little bit of money to ease the transfer process. I'd like to know who's been telling whoppers as they always tell me that I've been recommended as a trustworthy member of society! 8O :lol:
  5. this actually really upset me.

    as some of you know i lost my mother 2 months ago, and i recieved an email "regarding the late (my surname) estate.
    i've actually had 3 of them now in the last few weeks. sick fcukers.
  6. Don't forget army that I have always loved you and find you a warm,loving ,kind,generous,giving,unselfish,bighearted etc person.
    in loving hope your adoring Hat!!!
  7. This is another version of the Nigerian scams (I think they're called 419s, after the legislation they contravene - something along that line anyway). This one is much better written than most, but as usual there are giveaway errors.

    Current advice is under no circumstances reply, even if it's only to heap abuse on the sender.

    I, however, got one from Uganda that I'm sure is genuine. Mr Olobu Mbangwa says he used to work for Idi Amin, and if I send him my bank details he'll forward a chunk of the former dictator's fortune to me. I replied a fortnight ago; can't wait for the wonga to come rolling in!

    This has got to be a man!!

  9. Well done, Mr_Deputy! :D Our Compliance team regularly tells us not to play with them, but it is tempting...
  10. While this may come across as just a tad mercenary of me, if I had any relatives likely to leave me half a million in their will then they would be non-existant pretty quickly...oh yeah baby!
  11. Cuddles, if I didn't know better I'd think you were my brother! 8O
  12. Found this cracking one in Scam-orama and thought it deserved a mention for the
    good Captain's name alone !! :)
