    FROM: MR.CHEN GUANGYUAN
    Bank of China (Hongkong)
    Eastern Commercial Centre,
    393-407 Hennessy Road, Wan Chai,Hong Kong.

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    It is understandable that you might be apprehensive because you do not
    know me but I have a lucrative business proposal of mutual interest to
    share with you. Permit me to introduce myself, I am Mr. Chen Guangyuan,
    Foreign Operations Manager of the Bank of China (Hong kong), Eastern
    Commercial Centre, Wan Chai Branch. Only recently I discovered that an
    account belonging to Ghazi Musa Hassan, who wa with the Iraqi forces and
    also a businessman made a numbered fixed deposit for 12 calendar
    months, with a value of Seventeen Million Three Hundred Thousand United
    State Dollars (US$17,300,000.00) only into an account with my branch,Upon
    maturity several notice was sent to him, but there was no response.
    Again, december last year, another notification was sent and still no
    response came from him. We later find out that Ghazi Musa Hassan and
    his family had been killed during the war in gun fire at Mukaradeeb where
    his personal oil well was.

    http://www.iraqbodycount.net/names.htm
    After further enquiries, it was discovered that Ghazi Musa Hassan did
    not declare any next of kin in his official papers, including the paper
    work of his bank deposit. The last time he came to my office, he
    confided in me that no one knew of this deposit in my bank. What bothers me
    most is that according to the laws of my country, at the expiration of
    six{6} years,the funds will be revert to the ownership of the Hong Kong
    Government, if nobody applies to claim it. Against this backdrop, my
    suggestion to you is that I will like to front you as a foreigner to
    stand as the next of kin to Ghazi Musa Hassan, so that you will be able
    to receive his funds.

    MODALITIES:

    I want you to know that all modalities for the successful of this
    transfer to you have been mapped out and success is 100% sure. I have an
    attorney that will prepare the necessary documents that will back you
    up as the next of kin to Ghazi Musa Hassan, all that is required from
    you is to provide me with your Full Names and Address, so that the
    attorney can commence his job.

    After you have been made the next of kin, the attorney will file for
    claims on your behalf and also secure the necessary approval and letter
    of probate in your favor for the movement of the funds to an account
    that will be provided by you. We are going to adopt a legalized method
    because the attorney will prepare all necessary documents in your
    favour.

    There is a reward for this project and it is a task well worth
    undertaking. There is no risk involved at all in our planned modalities, I
    have

    evaluated the risks and the only risk I have her is your refusing to
    work with me and alerting my bank. I am the only one who knows of this
    situation, good fortune has blessed you with a name that has planted you
    into the center of relevance in my life.

    Please endeavor to observe utmost discretion in all matters concerning
    this issue. Once the funds have been transferred to your nominated bank
    account, we shall share in the ratio of 50% for me, 50% for you.
    I send you this mail not without a measure of fear as to what the
    consequences, but I know within me that nothing ventured is nothing gained
    and that success and riches never come easy or on a platter of gold.
    Please observe this instructions religiously.

    Should you be interested please send me your:

    1,Full names and address.

    2,Telephone and fax numbers.

    And finally after that I shall furnish you with more informationabout
    this operation.

    Your earliest response to this letter will be appreciated.

    Kind Regards
    Chen Guangyuan

    I think it's safe to say you're an idiot. Also, you're 14. You don't really expect some oil company man to actually even talk to you?

    They must spend days thinking up these letters. As if someone is going to give money to a perfect stranger. Only thing you will win is your identity stolen and your bank account wiped. Just a shame this all happens abroad and they can't stop it or do anything about it.

    I get about 3 of these per DAY. They are fucking annoying, but the good thing is that GMail's built-in spam blocker is the best out there [​IMG]

    i know another one:

    you get a free online lottery ticket via email.
    a few days later you get an email that you have won the lottery.

    then they say they need you to pay some money for shipping and handling of your price.
