Recieved this load of all bull:

MR. BOUKARI AHRUNA.
AFRICAN DEVMENT BANK (A.D.B)
OUAGADOUGOU BURKINA FASO
WEST AFRICA

Dear Friend,

I know that this mail will come to you as a surprise. I am the bill and
exchange manager ADB BANK HERE IN OUAGADOUGOU BURKINA FASO.

I Hoped that you will not expose or betray this trust and confident
that i
am about to repose on you for the mutual benefit of our both families.

I need your urgent assistance in transferring the sum of ($25.6)MILLION
immediately to your account.
The money has been dormant for years in our Bank here without any body
coming for it.

I want to release the money to you as the nearest person to our
deceased
customer(the owner of the account)who died a long with his supposed
next of
kin in an air crash since July 2000.

I don't want the money to go into our Bank treasury as an abandoned
fund. So
this is the reason why i contacted you, so that we will release the
money to
you as the nearest person to the deceased customer.

Please I would like you to keep this proposal as a top secret and
delete if
you are not interested.
Upon receipt of your reply,I will send you full details on how the
business
will be executed and also note that you will have 35% of the above
mentioned
sum if you agree to transact the business with us.

Thank's and holping to hear from you
MR. BOUKARI AHRUNA.

Love it the old Nigeria scam. This was even around before e-mail, in the city 20 years ago it used to come in on faxes.

They ask for your bank details and for an up front fee. If you are lucky this fee is all you lose, if not they empty your account.

AND YET PEOPLE STILL FALL FOR IT

I think you're being paranoid, it looks kosher to me. If you don't fancy getting involved would you mind if I got hold of this good Samaritan?
