Subject: Spanking new Nigerian Scam GREAT ONE!
From: InOBU
Date: 30 Aug 02 - 11:12 AM

This one is a real work of art, a ballad really, so I am posting it for your enjoyment, came in the mail today.
Cheers Larry
FROM: JOHN DUKE.

SIR/ MADAM

I am DR JOHN DUKE, working with Union Bank Plc. Nigeria. There is one Captain Maxwell Browell who happen to be one of our client but he died last year December in a plane crash which also claimed the life of his only child, Mr. Maxwell Browell jnr. Who untill death was the next of kin to the father's money with Union Bank Plc. It is only me that knows the bank information of Mr. Maxwell and I'm the only Manager of the Bank who's aware that Mr Maxwell and his son (next of kin) is dead. He left at about $25millon in his account. And before his death, he told me personally if anything happened to him or the son, that his money should be willed to an NGO organisation as the next of kin.

At this juncture I want to transfer this US$25million into the account you have nominated. I will do the paper work here claiming that you are the next of kin to Mr. Maxwell and that you want to transfer the sum into your account abroad. The service of an Attorney will be need to seal everything and to change the data and information in his file so as to enable us transfer it swiftly. If we employ the service of a highly Accredited Lawyer that means it will take us only 14 working days to transfer the money into your account. He will arrange for the affidavit of support from Ministry of Justice claiming that you are the right beneficiary of this fund. Do send your Bank particulars and your personal phone number immediately.

I and my colleague will give you 30% of the total sum of the US$25M for assisting us.

The transaction is 100% risk free.

Yours Faithfully,

DR JOHN DUKE

I figure the best way to make money is write a book called "How To Make 20 Million Dollars In ONE YEAR", get a really good cover design for it, get a couple of celebrity endorsements (like Danny De Vito and Oprah Winfrey), fill it full of supposedly useful information, get published, then sit back and cash in! Greed feeds greed. Isn't useless capitalism glorious? Meanwhile there are things which actually need to get done, like growing food, healing the sick, educating people, and so on, but we'll just let someone else deal with it and buy it from them after we're rich.

You can order a P.H.D. off the internet too. I think I'll go for one in Paleontology...it sounds so distinguished.

I work for a Federal Government agency & we get Nigerian scams, too. At least when they posted them our stamp collectors got a stamp. Now our mean & nasty webmaster just marks them SPAM FOR DELETION, so we don't even get the pleasure of reading them. He also marks other spam like the invitation from the beautiful blond with the webcam inviting us to look at her site, how sad for our male colleagues.

One of my friends got ordained into some church or other from a website!! He very proudly displays this certificate next to his & his wife's degrees. Its a good talking point.

But why are these letters all written by illiterate scam artists? Do they not think it might help if there weren't fifty grammatical errors? Perhaps the only folks who DO respond (and sadly there must be thousands of poor souls who willingly donate their e-mail addresses to the scam pool) aren't capable of noticing the bad grammar.

I have a friend who always responds to spam, because he thinks he's "tellin' them a thing or two". Naturally he now spends most of his waking hours on his rapidly expanding spam pile. Verrrrry strange.

             STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL





My Dear Friend,

First i must solicit for your srictest confidence in this transaction and I pray that my decision to contact you will be given genuine approval considering the fact that we have not know each other before.

I wish to use this opportunity to introduce myself to you, I am Mrs Mary Iddo Sankoh,the wiife of the former minister of Diamond Mining Corporation in my country,My husband had a bullet shot by the rebels on his way travelling to Lusia a city after Freetown the capital along with my daughter, My daughter died on the spot while the U N peace keeping force rescued my Husband, he was taken to hospital for medical treatment which he later died about three months now.

Fortunately, my Husband has Ten million andFive hundred thousand United States Dollars(US$10.5million) cash, which he intended to use for investment purposes overseas. This money is kept with private security company here since two years ago. It is only my son and myself that know where the money is kept and has the documents for it.

Due to the current situation in the country concerning government‚s vendettas towards my family, we seek your assistance to transfer the ownership of this fund to you so that you can asisst us to claim it and use for the purpose of investment as intended by my husband. My family is currently being probed by this present government for alleged involvement in misappropriation
of public funds during his regime.


Towards this effect, an embargo restricting my family members from traveling or carrying out financial transactions without their express permission is in force. Right now, my son and myself have concluded plans and decided to to take immediate claim of this fund so that we can use it to better our lives and alliviate our present suffering hence this contact.

However, I have an arrangement on how you can help us to recieve this money after receiving some assurances from you. The money personally belongs to my husband and he intended that it still be used for investment. No record ever existed concerning this money, neither is the money traceable by the government because there is no documentation concerning the funds in the Federal
Treasury. We have concluded plans with the security company to transfer this consignment to their affiliate agencies outside this country to make it easier for you to recieve this on our behalf.I shall brief you in full once i hear from you on the detailed procedures for this project.

Bearing in mind that your assistance is needed to transfer this fund, we propose a commission of 20%(Twenty Percent) of the total sum to you for the expected services and assistance. While 5% is mapped out for miscellaneous expenses.

On your positive consent, I shall expect you to contact me urgently to enable us discuss about
this.Your urgent response is highly needed. I must use this opportunity to implore you to exercise utmost indulgence to keep this matter extraordinarily confidential, while I await your prompt response.

Best regards,

MRS. MARY IDDO SANKOH/ABDUL SANKOH

A recent grin from a friend along the lines of SlowAllan's hopefully fictitious tale:

I went to the store the other day, I was only in there for about 5
minutes and when I came out there was a damn motorcycle cop writing a
parking ticket. So I went up to him and said, 'Come on buddy, how about
giving a guy a break?' He ignored me and continued writing the
ticket.So I called him a pencil necked nazi. He glared at me and started writing
another ticket for having bald tires!! So I called him a son of a
mutant pig. He finished the second ticket and put it on the car with the
first. Then he started writing a third ticket!! This went on for about 20
minutes, the more I abused him, the more tickets he wrote.

I didn't give a damn. My car was parked around the corner...



Have yourself a great weekend, one and all.

What makes you think they are necessarily scams just to get you to divulge your bank details? The first one you get is to get up your nose so you reply with dire invective. They know you exist.
Like the old WW1 trenches joke of Tommy Atkins shouting "Fritz" across the divide and when "Fritz" (there must be one) looks over the parapet & shouts "are you calling me?" Tommy fires in that direction. There's more to the joke but I will spare you that.

Gurney's comment about literacy is, I think, a little off the mark.

"If that famous man was slightly more literate, he would have said 'You can't cheat A honest man.."
Sorry, Rapaire, you just triggered one of my fetishes."

In the days of my youth, when English Language was taught as a school subject together with the rules and exceptions to those rules, the above comment would have been correct.
As the "h" in the word honest is silent, then the word is pronounced "onest". As such the word purports to begin with a vowel, necessitating the longer adjective "an" rather than "a".
Oxford English Dictionary is quite clear:
a, an - adjective. Before all consonants except silent H use "a"; "a" history, "a" historian, but "an" hour.
However, on reflection it may, of course, depend upon from whence one originates and the local dialect.

Bonecrusher, I was taught to sound my aitches. All of them.
Mind you, in those days, you didn't question authority. If teacher said it, it was true.
Here in NZ our newsreaders seem to take delight in saying 'an horrific accident' or 'an historical occasion' which jars me because they DO sound the aitch.
Did you know that the editor of the Oxford for many years (if memory serves) was a Kiwi? Perhaps he was trying a covering move.
Don't believe there should be such a thing as a silent aitch, otherwise we would all be saying "an our an' an arf" and then we wouldn't be able to tell Londoners from people.
Why isn't there an H in aitch?

Story from Derek Brimstone.

"It's not 'orse, James, it's Horse!"
"I SAID, 'ow do you spell 'ORSE!"
"I've told you, James, it isn't 'orse, it's HORSE!"

Hi Gurney
Guess we're a little off topic re pronunciations but I did qualify my last with the remark about one's own locality and local dialect.
Unfortunately in UK the schoolteachers no longer teach the rules of grammar, it being considered necessary only to be expressive! Hence we have the apalling use of English to be seen today. This seems to be compounded be the Spellcheckers on computers which are unable to distinguish between words of same sound but different spelling and meaning.
It is nice to find someone else who has an interest in the correct use of language.

Here is a great one I received the other day -

Good Day,
             This is a minor introduction my name is Stephanie age 40 on formal
introduction I will let you know the full name. I am from a royal family my
father was a king although late now my elder brother Albert will succeed him.
             My real essence for sending you this mail is as a result of the
death of my dad who was a king if you reply this mail and you are willing to
assist me with my endeavor to collect some money amounting to
£70,000,000.00 which my father lodged with a security company which I am
still in the process of locating I know for sure that the money is there but I
do not know for now the security company but I promise to find that out very
soon.
            I will need someone to claim it on my family behalf because once a
family member give you the power to act on his or her behalf then you can act
that was the way my father handled his funds if I claim it myself my elder
brother Albert and Caroline my sister investigating me and they will give me a
very minor share from it which I cant stand because as of now they have already
reduced my inheritance.
          Please help me so I can stand my brother and sister have shared
everything and he still has the throne of Monaco for him and my sisters son
would be the next ruler so they have it all planned I need your help please.
Best regards.
Stephanie

I get the feeling that one from Stephanie is a spoof of the scam & not a real scam. It is well done. I usually delete these on sight, I think I'll watch for it.

This One is still one of my favs.

By responding and asking for any further correspondence to be sent by certified mail the stream of Nigerian scam e-mails cam be cut down significantly.

They seem to tell each other who not to bother with.

Our local paper just reported that someone in our immediate area actually sent $500.00 to pay the taxes so that the first payment of his multi-millions in lottery winnings could be released. He got suspicious when he promptly got a request for an additional $300.00. He was identified only as to his age, 52, so there's little chance that his problem is senility.

hmmmmmm, and using the Euro symbol when talking of British Pounds is a tad suspicious.
