Well I didn't want to start a new thread so here goes...

FROM/LINDA CELEMENT

Dearest,

Please i am sorry for the inconvinences and embarrassment this may look like but i wrote it with the heart of tears and sorrows as an orphan, seeking your understanding and help in the name of God.

My mother died when I was a baby and since then my father took me so special. Before the death of my father on January 2005 in a private hospital here in Abidjan he secretly called me on his bed side and told me that he has the sum of ten million,five hundred thousand United State Dollars. USD $10.5mleft in fixed / suspense account in one of the prime bank here in Abidjan ,that he used my name as his only daughter for the next of Kin in depositing of the fund. He also explained to me that it was because of this wealth that he was poisoned by his business associates.

That I should seek for a foreign partner in a country of my choice where i will transfer this money and use it for investment purpose such as real estate management or hotel management .

Dear, I am honourably seeking your assistance in the following ways:

(1) To provide a good bank account into which this money would be transferred into .

(2) To serve as a guardian of this fund since I am only 19years.

(3) To make arrangement for me to come over to your country to further my education and to secure a resident permit in your country. Moreover, dear, i am willing to offer you 15% of the total sum as compensation for your effort/ input after the successful transfer of this fund into your nominated account overseas. Furthermore, you indicate your options towards assisting me as I believe that this transaction would be concluded within seven (7) days you signify interest to assist me. Please contact me on my private email ([email protected])

Yours Faithfully,
Linda Celement

The thing is, as TV and general hearsay tells us, many people fall for these scams every day and lose their life savings. Very sad :(.

Wasn't it ElRazur who warned us not to do that, due to the scammers being powerful crime lords or something?

What I've never quite understood is how these scams go from being "give us your bank details so we can give you money" to "actually, I tell you what, why don't you just give us some money"

How does anyone actually fall for that?

I mean, its obviously not good practice, but surely you can give out your acount number and sort code to as many people as you like and all they could do is put money IN your account.

So what does the scam involve that eventually lets them take money OUT of your account?

(excuse my ignorance, but being sensible I just always ignore/delete these things, but have wondered how they manage to get money out of anyone)

I like it when the random text they append (to confuse bayesian filters),
contains phrases like "**** sex"
- which then result in it being blocked anyway... :rolleyes:


like the random text example above contains "pray" and "whore" = blocked


honestly, someone should go out there
and teach them how to do it properly, it's embarrassing.

go to 419eater for good advice on how to string them along and waste there time...

And NEVER give them anything that can connect them to you, create a new hotmail or gmail account and use that.

Dear friend,

As you read this, I don't want you to feel sorry for me, because, I
Believe everyone will die someday. My name is Abdul Karim, a business
merchant

I have been diagnosed with lung cancer. It has defiled all
forms of medical treatment, and right now I have only about a few years
to live,according to medical experts. I have not particularly lived my
life
so well, as never really cared for anyone (not even myself) but my
business.Though I am very rich, I was never generous, I was always
hostile to people and only focused on my business as that was the only thing I cared for.

But now I regret all this as I now know that there is more to life than
just wanting to have or make all the money in the world.
I believe when God gives me a second chance to come to this world I
would live my life a different way from how I have lived it. Now that
God has called me, have willed and given most of my property and assets to my immediate and extended family members as well as a few close friends. I
want God to be merciful to me and accept my soul so, I have decided to give alms to charityorganizations, as I want this to be one of the last good deeds I
do on earth.
So far, I have distributed money to some charity organizations
in the U.A.E,Algeria and Malaysia. Now that my health has deteriorated so
badly, I cannot do this myself anymore. I once asked members of my family to close one of my accounts and distribute the money which I have there to
charity organization in Bulgaria and Pakistan; they refused and kept the money to hemselves.

Hence, I do not trust them anymore, as they seem not to be contended
with what I have left for them. The last of my money, which no one
knows of,is the huge cash deposit of Ten million US dollarUS$10,000,000),
that I have with a security company abroad. Acknowledge this message so that I can introduce you to my lawyer who will handle the transfer of
receivership by you of the said funds.

I will want you to help me collect this deposit cash and use it for
charity organizations only.


Thanks.
God be with you
Abdul Karim


I played along with this guy for a good few weeks, had lots of fun, it got to the point where i asked for a lear jet and ferrari plus £5,000,000 in cash. Funnily enough he still wanted my bank details for the transfer of funds, every e-mail i sent him, i would change my name to something totaly random. Steve stone one day, michael barrymore the next!

Got bored after a while and told him in big letters to 'kiss my behind you naughty scamming person' (expleatives deleted) Even after this, he still asked me to contact his lawyer so the transfer could take place!!
