Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

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

  1. Well imagine my surprise when I recieved this e-mail today.
    Apparently some decent chap has popped his clogs and has decided to leave me with a shed load of money. Yay me :D.

    Here is the e-mail in full:

    Now despite my happiness I cant be but a bit weary.
    First of all Ive never heard of this chap.
    Also why would an English bloke leave his money to me in USD?
    Lastly, although Im an allround nice chap, humanitarian work does'nt really appeal to me.
    So, what should I do ARRSER's?

    This cant possibly be a scam, the e-mail seems so genuine :D

  4. What's the betting he wants an admin fee set to PO Box BULLSH!TE in Ghana...
  5. drinks on you then suits?
  6. Oh no i got another one a while ago saying I had one a Nigerian lottery :D
    They didnt reply to my e-mail voicing my concerns.
  7. And such eloquent English syntax and grammar from a well edjumacated barrister. (You can tell he's a real barrister from his email address)

    Just get your bank details to him pronto, you know it makes sense.

  8. I thought I would give him a call but alas can find no trace of this firm on google. Hmm shame.
    Ill have to do it by e-mail then.
  9. do keep us posted old chap :)
  10. well,bugger me! Who'd have thought it? Fancy a barrister resorting to fraud,like they don't earn enough already!

    Every other week I get people I've never head of leaving me millions of dollars [always dollars] in their wills.

    I guess I must be a very nice and popular bloke.

    However, as the money in dollars is only worth half that in quids, I keep deciding not to bother to answer. I mean, what use can £3,650,00 be?
