    Whoo Hooo, I'm going to be rich!



    Assalam Alaikum

    I got your email address through Islamic organization directory over the Internet.

    I hope in the name of ALLAH that I have the right person who will assist me.

    I want to transfer money for investment into your country/business as such I would like to make contact with people like you residing in that country for assistance Note,the funds are already with a security company which also has branches in Asia, Europe and America for safe keeping. If you are willing to assist me.

    This is all you will do for me,You will help me contact the security company for the release of the funds to you as my next of kin, as I cannot travel out from Iraq at the moment because of certain conditions which I will explain to you if we work together(my traveling documents are not yet complete).

    The fall of Saddam Hussein has brought destruction / Hell to our great country and everything is practically difficult now and opportunities are closing up,the new government is trying to frustrate our businesses.

    What I require from you are as follows:

    1. You should make arrangement with the Security Company to secure the funds on my behalf.

    2. You will be entitled to 30% of the total sum involved for your assistance, and 5% of the funds will be set aside for reimbursement of any kind of expenses incur as a result of this transaction by both parties.

    3. As soon as you confirm to me by e-mail your readiness to claim the consignment from the Security Company, I will send the PIN code number of the consignment to you and also the security Company's information.

    4. Please note that this project is 100% risk free but you must keep it very secret and confidential with strong assurance that you will not let me down at all.

    I have made all necessary arrangement getting for the probate order from court that necessitate you as the next of kin and this document will allow you deposit the money to any account of your choice safely.

    Please if you're interested to assist me, reply back with this Email address [quasa100@rediffmail.com]

    I await your prompt reply.

    Regards,
    Abdullah.

    i keep an anonymous email address that I use for the sole purpose of responding to these emails...i lead them on for a while and they get anxious wanting me to finally give them the information...I'll take weeks to actually give them a fake bank routing # and such stringing them along with talks of becoming good friends who start a business together with all our money and stuff...it's a great way to spend a lunch hour...

    I stumbled into one of these scams by replying to a car ad in the Houston Chronicle.
    It was a 69' Firebird for $4500.00. I called the # and sent an email, and after a week I got a text and email saying the car was in Billings, Mt and in order to continue WE needed to open an account(no money, just info) with Yahoo Finance...since I am in Houston and cannot view the car in person. That and the account would ensure MY financial safety.

    I replied that 'I have a friend in Billings that will view the vehicle for me and supply cash for the transaction...if it is indeed a real deal.'
    I got another mail (w/ a picture of a 69' Trans Am in perfect condition) saying if I wanted to buy the car, I would HAVE to open an account.

    I thanked them for their time and wished them luck.

    I had a friend at work that was falling for just such a scheme. He started telling me about the woman he had been in contact with, and even showed me the 5 postal money orders she had sent him that were for $775 each.

    I told him to take those money orders to the police or post office because I was positive that he was being scammed.

    I don't know if he followed up on it or not, because he lost his job shortly after that.

    My father-in-law has fallen for this twice now... He didn't learn the first time last Summer, and he refuses to listen to any of us that he got fucked over AGAIN last month...

    Screw him...

    They are on Dating sites too now..
    a friend of mine had actual IM conversations with a girl in Arkansas that seemed to be completely genuine. she got a bit sticky after a while and told him that she felt that this was "true love" even though they never met.

    Then she had to travel for business to London for a couple of days.. no alarm bells yet.. until she emailed "from London" that she had to fly to Nigeria for an emergency.. but he decided to play along for a bit more.
    and sure enough.. when "she" "arrived" in Nigeria, she emailed that she was completely out of money, but also had to take care of a couple of boxes full of money that were an overpayment to her dead father's company that she wanted to ship to my buddy in Holland. oh and of course the bad guys were after her en her money at the same time. hehe
    so he had to call a shipping company in Nigeria to pay for the shipment of the boxes to Holland, and send money for her plane ticket to holland as well.. of course she wanted to be with him as soon as possible and marry him straight away! hehe how sad

    Obviously my friend responded with all the swearwords in both dutch and english he could think off.

    Still I am surprised with the effort and time they put in their scams now.. this one took about 2 weeks and a lot of cheesy IM and email conversations! (most templates I'm sure)
    either way, they must think that desperate single guys must be an easy target these days

    btw, my buddy is not that desperate.. he just wanted to see if he could prepare something for his roadtrip in the US in a couple of months

    Check out http://www.419eater.com ... the ultimate scambaiting site.

    I led one of these guys on for a month after reading some of the stuff on that site. I had the scammer convinced I was Bruce Wayne; he would receive email from my assistant Alfred, and I was in the process of wiring the money he needed, but I was tied up having to attend the Ron Jeremy Fundraising Dinner for victims of earthquake Katrina.
    Good times...

    Yeah, you can have a lot of fun with these people if you have the time and patience to mess with them.

    People like this deserve to be messed with. If you have the time it can be rewarding.

    I dislike sales calls at dinner time and religious groups knocking on my door but to be scamming like this ........

    Maybe I'm going to take some advice from here and set up a special e mail account, just for sport.

    I will pretend to be absolutely retarded and with a tenuous grasp of the English language and display gullibility and stupidity in equal measure and bombard the bastards with an email or two a day......

    "I am like much business you promote. Good to be check in postage when I having none bank. Or you will go here my house and play cash and I am giving you coffee and the cakes of my mother, she is old but cooking well today. Very exciting. Please you will send a photo too. I like photos..." etc
    A man could lose himself in a country like this.
