    The said fund US$100 million in question resulted from contract over
    invoiced we perfected when we awarded contract for the construction of

    you send to me the following vital information of yours: - 1.Full name
    of your bank 2.The bank address of your bank; 3.The bank Swift
    code;4.your contact telephone number or mobile cell phone number if
    any.5.The Name of account holder or beneficiary, if you are not the
    direct account holder.

    My colleagues and I have resolved to offer you 30% of the total
    money.5% would be mapped out to offset all the contingent expenses in
    the course of the transaction while the remaining 65% will be shared
    Among the concerned officials here.

    Be informed, top most secret must be observed through out this
    transaction for security reasons.

    You can as well call me immediately you receive this massage on my

    information.

    I look forward to receiving your quick response urgent.

    Yours sincerely,


    Engr.Kayode Joseph

    Petroleum Corporation,
    N.N.P.C



    oddly enough, the majority of ones i get are "from nigeria" Haha
    edit: i got one from "west africa" last week, it seems similar to the one you posted devin, especially this line here: "My Late father ( Ismael who was the former Minister of Economy and Finance of Laurent Gbagbo and died on January 11, 2012, but before his death, he deposited a huge amount of Eight million Six Hundred Thousand Euro, (€8.6Million) in one of the leading bank here in Abidjan cote d'Ivoire"

    I never get these, not even in my spam folder. Either Hotmail has incredible security, or the world just doesn't consider me worth scamming...not sure whether or not that'd be a compliment :unsure:

    I get these emails pretty often. Sometimes the currency is US dollars, other times it's in Euros. I wish they were real and not a scam. :)

    Anywhere you think of me.
    Scam.

    I also received emails/text-messages every now and then basically stating that i'm no longer gonna be a pirate.

    They usually ask you for personal information which you shouldn't give out to a absolute stranger. That's how shit happens, don't do it!!!


    I once got a phone call from a foreign guy saying that i won some international ID prize (or some shit like that) I instantly knew it was a scam phone call and i just blabbered a pile of fake shit just to see where it was going.
