Fortunately the Malawian Supreme Court have ordered me to return all the moneys fraudulently taken from you with interest. Please could you email me all of your bank details including any pass words and security codes in order that I can transfer the monies due.

  8. What are you waiting for man go for it what do you have to loss. Don't forget to send your bank account details and pin number back to your new Nigerian bestes mate.
     
  9. And there was I thinking 419'ers had packed their bags and ran long ago...
     
  10. Im going to pass on this one as I have so many. I do however like your avator BaldBaBoon
     
  11. Send em the Barons Shorty's Bank Details off the wiki page :)
     
  12. 10.5m dollars? Seems like a lot of trouble to go to for 49p.
     
  13. Ha ha ha, let me acknowledge the massive WAHHH in this post before I begin :)

    I have to laugh everytime I see emails like this, because a: someone typed it out and sent it to me hoping I'd believe it, and b: People actually do fall for it!!!!?!!! The whole email straight away screams SCAM to anyone with half an ounce of intelligence before you even start to read them what with the totally informal means of contacting you, poor spelling, crazy story etc.

    I had to laugh at a couple of things in this one, first was the 'since you share the same middle name' bit, because that of course is legally binding hahahahahaha, and as his middle name is Smith, that would make pretty much 10% of the UK 'entitled' to this scam and the second one was that he'd need over 1M USD to pay for telephone bills and administration costs. If I could be arssed I would spend more time ripping the p!ss out of this story, but like I said, these two jumped out and made me laugh as I brisked over it.

    I'm sure he would need your bank details mate to pay the funds into your account. Make sure you spend your 3M USD wisely. WWWAAAAHHHHHHHHH
     
  14. No way its all true when BaldBaBoon has his £10m tucked up in his account you will be so sorry. How could you think anyone just made that sort of story up then track down BBB and send him the good news. Have a bit of respect poor BBB has lost a long lost distant family member and I'm sure he and his family are deeply distress at the news of the demise of a much loved family member. The up side is they have a new close Nigerian family friend who will help them through the grieving process. RIP Garnet Smith Halliday (known as Alf) gone but not forgotten.
     
  15. BaldBaBoon is a lying toe-rag - I got the same email offering me US$27.5 M so he's trying to rip us off!

    If you would like to take action against this jackal then please send me $2,000 towards Lawyer Smith's legal fees.

    Send it me me via Western Union. My name is Your Brother in Christ M'bongo M'bongo, Port Harcourt, Nigeria.
