  1. Ok here is a scam email i received today.

    Dear Friend,
    I know that this mail will come to you as a surprise as we have
    never met before, but need not to worry as I am using the only secured
    and confidential medium available to seek for your foreign assistance in
    a business. I am contacting you independently of my investigation and no
    one is informed of this communication.

    I need your assistance in transferring the sum of $15 million
    US Dollars, immediately to your private account. The money has been here
    in our bank lying dormant for more than 6 years now without anybody
    coming for the claim of it.

    I want to release the money to you as the nearest person to our
    deceased customer (the account owner), who died along with his supposed
    next of kin since November 2006. The banking ethics here does not allow
    such money to stay more than 6 years because the money will be recalled
    to the bank treasury as an unclaimed fund.

    Upon receipt of your reply, indicating your interest in this
    transaction, I will send you full details on how the business will be
    executed. Please keep this proposal as a Top Secret and do remember to
    please reply me through my private email address below.
    Best regards,

    Rahman Ahmed.

  9. You need to sort out your spam filter old boy. When you've done that you might like to sort out your reading skills too.

    He said "Scam" rather than "Spam" and whilst they might overlap a little I suspect he was specifically referring to "419" type scam mail.

  10. nice one centurion! That's one to save and utilise. :-D
  11. You need to sort out your date reading skills, as the post you are replying to is over two years old.
  12. Agreed... I blame Snailio though for posting today and bring the thread to the top of the heap :smile:
  13. Hush peasant, or I'll smack you repeatedly on the swede with a wooden spoon.
