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. I know these get posted a lot but this one grabbed my attention. Seemingly some little old lady in Africa thinks god has answered her prayers by giving her my e:mail. I think i prefer her version of things rather than drinking water from dead hubbies body making her dillusional.

    Whatever is a devout atheist to do in such divine matters?

  2. It seems someone 'remembered' me this morning as this graced my mailbox... Ah those Paraguay investment projects, they are just so darn time consuming.


    Dear Partner,

    I am very sorry for the delay in responding to your mails. I had a little internet problem but it is over now and I am glad I finally got hold of you.I lost so many email addresses but I am trying to gather as much as I can though with lot's of mix up.

    I'm happy to inform you about my success in getting the fund transferred under the cooperation of a new partner from Paraguay. Presently I'm in Paraguay for investment projects with my own share of the total sum.

    Meanwhile, I didn't forget your past efforts and attempts to assist me in transferring those funds despite that it failed us some how.Now contact my secretary, his name is Richard Benson and his email address is Ask him to send you the total $350.000.00 (Three hundred and fifty thousand dollars) in a Certificate Bank Draft which I kept for your compensation for all the past efforts and attempts to assist me in this matter. I appreciated your efforts at that time very much. So feel free and get in touch with my secretary Richard Benson and instruct him where to send the amount to you.

    Please do let me know immediately you receive it so that we can share the joy after all that we went through at that time. In the moment, I am very busy here because of the investment projects which I and my new partner are having at hand, finally, remember that I had forwarded instruction to the secretary on your behalf to receive that money, so feel free to get in touch with him and he will send the amount to you without any delay.

    Mr Philips Adams
  3. Have had similar,Ignore
  4. Well jee thanks for pointing out the obvious of not replying to it. I did not post it looking for tips on how to spend my share but the stupidity of it.
  5. Occasionally I reply thanking them for their confidence in me but pointing out that I have four more years in prison to do before I can help them.
  6. Hmm

    I am Mr.Smith Mbani, Director of Project, South Africa Department of Minerals and Energy. I am making this contact with you based on the Committee need for an individual/company who is willing to assist us with a solution to a money transfer. This amount $28.5m represents the balance of the total contract Value Executed on behalf of Department by a foreign contracting firm, which we the officials over-invoiced deliberately, of which the actual sum has been paid. Should you be willing to assist us in the transaction? Your share of the sum will be 25% of the $28.5million, 70% for us and 5% for taxation and miscellaneous expenses. To enable us commence, I will need our personal telephone/fax number. Please send your response to I await your immediate response.

    Bit dodgy especially as he doesn't know his own fax or phone number! So I just sent him the phone number of Scotland Yard
