  2. Forget it, chum.. the FBI world affairs division is paying me $ 80 MILLION in compensation for my being deceived by fraudsters.. you're being gypped...$ 100,000 is peanuts..

    besides, you'll only be asked by the people from Nigeria to donate it to the Nigerian Relief of Haiti Fund now being touted across the world wide weeb to help the unfortunates there..

    and don't hold your breath waiting for the cheque or money transfer,.. the same bunch [ Zenith Bank ] still owe me millions from the e-mail lottery win that Coca Cola was supposed to pay me...

    Come to think of it.. the FBI money is a bit late in coming, too..

    Why has someone who posted a whopping 11 times in 10 months bothered posting a generic spam email on an Army - themed website?
     
  12. New players on the market.. Offshore spammers.. Nigeria must be getting too expensive to operate..like America getting their crap made in China.. spammers are now moving to cheaper e-mail spots on the www.

    A new one, and this one I'd be proud to have invented. If anyone anywhere in the world responds to this then it is proof that they are just too damn stupid to possess money:

    I pray that this email reaches you in the best of health. This letter may come to you as asurprise due to the fact that we have not yet met. The message could be strange but it’s real and you will realise this if you pay some attention to it. I want to notify you about it at least for the sake of your integrity.
    My name is Major Greg Boner Moyo, a direct and only remaining member of the wealthy Moyo family. I am an astronaut with the South African Air Force and on loan to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
    In 2003 I left earth aboard the Mars Rover, Spirit. Seven months later I arrived on Mars.Prior to departing earth, I deposited the amount of US$ 11,600,000 (Eleven million, six hundred thousand United States dollars) in four safety galvanized boxes in a European financial institution which will be disclosed to you upon your acceptance of my proposal.
    Last year, during the course of my research on Mars, I was ambushed by a group of analdwelling rebel Martians who inflicted great torturous pain upon my body with anal probes.
    After a few weeks of enduring the physical pain, they released me. As a direct result of this cruelty, I am now very ill with a ruptured uterus that has defiled all forms of medical treatment and which has been deemed to be inoperable by my Martian surgeons. I am writing this mail to you on a laptop from my hospital bed in the Martian capitol of Zhwrong.
    I now have but a few weeks to live and I am far too ill to endure the long and arduous journey back to my South Africa home. Therefore I have decided to donate the bulk of my fortune to a church or charitable organisation that will utilize this money in the manner which I shall impart to you later. In return for your assistance, I shall authorise you to keep 30% of this fund for your trouble and aggravation plus an additional 10% to cover your expenses.
    You should contact my attorney in Johannesburg immediately with your address andtelephone number and he will give you his full contact information and guidance so that we can make arrangements as soon as possible.

    I particularly like the Nano Nano bit at the bottom. That Pam Dawber was very nice indeed back in the day.

  14. I love the Martian 419 scam. Yet who would fall for that? After all there are only two Seffrican astronauts, Mike Melvill and Mark Shuttleworth. Neither are military astronauts and neither have been to Mars.

    Sometimes I despair of these 419-ers, they just didn't do the research on what was otherwise a really believable story.
