here's a screenshot.

What it says.
FROM: MR ABDEL ZAMPAL
PRIVATE TELEPHONE;+226 78871868
Dear Friend,

I know that this message will come to you as a surprise.I am a banker by profession in BURKINA-FASO, WEST AFRICA and presently holding the post of assistant foreign remittance director in our bank. I need your urgent assistance in transferring the sum of ($25.2)million to your account within 14 banking days. This money has been dormant for years in our Bank without claim. I want the bank to release the money to you as the nearest person to our deceased customer, the owner of the account died along with his supposed next of kin in an air crash on July 31th 2003 .

I don't want the money to go into our Bank treasury as an abandoned fund. So this is the reason why i contacted you so that the bank can release the money to you as the next of kin to the deceased customer. Please I would like you to keep this proposal as a top secret and delete it if you are not interested.
Upon receipt of your reply,i will give you full details on how the business will be executed and also note that you will have 40% of the above mentioned sum if you agree to handle this business with me.Also,indicate your willingness by filling up the following reqiurements.

1.YOUR FULL NAME
2.YOUR AGE

4.YOUR CONTACT ADDRESS
5.YOUR TELE OR FAX NUMBERS

Trusting to hear from you urgently.

Abdel Zampal

Has anyone else had this?

You know, I bet if they actually did give someone the amount promised just once, they would get tons of people responding, and in turn would get way more than what was given away.

Hallo, my name is George, and I'm calling about the pigeon in your bank account...

Whatever it is, I delete it immediately. You should also do it. It`s nevert true.
Here`s another story, a summary:
Hello, I`m a father of a 12 year old girl with cancer. I made a deal with (some company) that for every mail you send to friends I can get €0.28.
Well apareantly it wasn`t true and that men had nothing to do with it. And someone mailed it to 523 people!
Why would you do something like that?
#12
Just email him back saying you want more info or something.
Keep it going for as long as possible by playing dumb and asking questions, and after a series of messages, send him something rediculous like you'd rather get the same sum in runescape or WoW gp =P

That's what I did to a Nigerian phishing scam in any case. It really is hilarious when you reread the messages.
Signature? What's a signature?

Yeah. I love the really odd ones though, like "Can I ask you a series of questions leading to me stealing your financial information?" "No." "Ok thank you, goodbye."
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

ye, everyone get's em...i had the best one ever once though (deleted screen print though :/) it was from "paypal" sayin that they needed to check my paypal details in order to protect me from spamming, and could i please reply to the email giving them my details :O it was said in more words than that though, and there were loads of spelling mistakes, so it looked like it was a polish dude who'd typed it. also, i don't even have a paypal account lol.

recently, i seem to be gettin s**t loads of viagra emails :S i haven't subscribed to anything coz they're all from different people...i have like 300 blocked addresses, all from viagra sales-people lol, and none of em seem legit to me :P

Yeah I've got loads of them , I delete them instantly. It's just funny how they word it:

'We have 5 million [insert random currency here] to give you, please give us you're bank details so we can put this into your bank account.

No no no.

Only trust bankers spamming your email if they're from Nigeria. Otherwise, you're racist.

I got a letter claiming to be from a spanish sweepstakes saying I'd won 3/4 a million dollars. The whole thing was covered in default Clipart pictures and looked like it printed at the lowest resolution they could.

They weren't even trying, it was hilarious. Give me a second and I'll try finding it and scanning it.

Edit:

This seem legit...

You know they mean business when they have 'original' and 'confidential' in wordart down either side.

To mods: If there's any sort of legal implications with me leaving the Emails, fax and phone numbers uncensored just remove the pictures from my post and send me a message please. Thanks
