    Default Post your Scam Emails!

    Recently got a scam email that was quite pathetic, so I figured I would post it on here. Feel free to post any you have received.
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
    Good Day!!

    I decided to write you this proposal in good faith, believing that you
    will not betray me.I have been in search of someone with the same last
    name of our late customer and

    close friend of mine (Mr. Richard), hence I contacted you because both
    of you bear the same surname and coincidentally from the same country,
    and I was pushed to contactyou

    and see how best we can assist each other. Meanwhile I am Mr. Fred
    Gamba , a reputable banker here in Accra Ghana .

    On the 15 March 2007, the young millionaire (Mr. Richard),a citizen of
    your country and Crude Oil dealer made a fixed deposit with my bank for
    36 calendar months, valued at

    US$17,500,000.00 (Seventeen Million, Five Hundred Thousand US Dollars)
    and the mature date for this deposit contract was on 31st of January,
    2011. But sadly he was among

    the death victims in the 12 May 2008, Earthquake disaster in China that
    killed over 5,000 people. Because he was in China on a business trip
    and that was how he met his

    end.

    My bank management is yet to know about his death, but I knew about it
    because he was my friend and I am his Account Relationship Officer, and
    he did not mention any Next

    of Kin/ Heir when the account was opened, because he was not married
    and no children. Last week my Bank Management requested that Richard
    should give instructions on what

    to do about his funds, if to renew the contract or not.

    I know this will happen and that is why I have been looking for a means
    to handle the situation, because if my Bank Directors happens to know
    that he is dead and do not

    have any Heir, they will take the funds for their personal use, so I
    don't want such to happen. That is why I am seeking your co-operation
    to present you as the Next of

    Kin/ Heir to the account, since you bear same last name with the
    deceased customer.

    There is no risk involved; the transaction will be executed under a
    legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of law. It
    is better that we claim the

    money, than allowing the Bank Directors to take it, they are rich
    already. I am not a greedy person, so I am suggesting we share the
    funds in this ratio, 50/50%, i.e.

    equal.

    Let me know your mind on this and please do treat this information
    highly confidential.

    I will review further informations / details to you as soon as I
    receive your positive reply in my private email address
    ([email protected] )

    Have a nice day and I Anticipating your communication.

    Regards
    Mr. Fred Gamba

    "A direct assault on Internet users" is what the ACLU is calling it.

    Yesterday a U.S. House committee approved HR 1981, a broad new Internet snooping bill. They want to force Internet service providers to keep track of and store their customers' information -- including your name, address, phone number, credit card numbers, bank account numbers, and temporarily-assigned IP addresses.

    The American Civil Liberties Union, the American Library Association, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, Demand Progress, and 25 other civil liberties and privacy groups have expressed our opposition to this legislation.
    Will you join us in opposition by emailing your lawmakers right away? Just click here.

    They've shamelessly dubbed it the "Protecting Children From Internet Pornographers Act," but our staunchest allies in Congress are calling it what it is: an all-encompassing Internet snooping bill.

    CNet Reports: Rep. Zoe Lofgren of California, who led Democratic opposition to the bill said, "'It represents a data bank of every digital act by every American' that would 'let us find out where every single American visited Web sites.'"

    "The bill is mislabeled," said Rep. John Conyers of Michigan, the senior Democrat on the panel. "This is not protecting children from Internet pornography. It's creating a database for everybody in this country for a lot of other purposes."

    Please click here to join the Center for Democracy and Technology, the Consumer Federation of America, the Electronic Privacy Information Center, Demand Progress and 25 other civil liberties and privacy groups in opposing this legislation.

    Thanks for fighting for Internet freedom.
    -- The Demand Progress team
    P.S. Thanks for signing: The bill just passed committee, so it's time to push back hard. Will you please ask your friends to take action too?

    Has anyone actually had them call you? Those are ultra fun.Waste them money too, international calling. Never gotten a picture though.
    I started one today, let's see where it goes

    Nero off-topic, but that's bad. At least there is opposition. Funny thing is it's bill number is 1981 (NO, THAT'S NOT IRONIC)

    I got this one last week.

    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 

    My dear good friend,

    My name is Patricia ukpali I am 20 years old girl. This is a compelling story, and I beg you to be patient and read through to the end. I was adopted in by Mr. Samuel Ukpali a successful cocoa farmer in Ivory Coast . Mr Samuel Ukpali died as a result of the political crisis in Ivory Coast .

    I loved Mr Samuel Ukpali for his kindness to me; for taking me out of the motherless baby home and make me his own daughter. He simply adopted me because he had no child on his own. I had no memory of my real parents.

    Before the death of Mr Samuel on June 12 2008 he called me on the hospital bed and narrated to me that he has some money deposited in the bank.

    Two weeks ago, I received a letter from the bank. The manager of this bank in his letter apologized to me for waiting so long to contact me; information of my father death simply did not reach him until a chance newspaper publication alerted him of the fact. I was then invited to come forward to their bank claiming of the money.

    I therefore decided to look for a foreign partner who will help me claim the money from the bank and arrange for the transfer of the money to abroad in your country and at the same time assist me to come over to your country to stay with you and continue my education.

    I desperately need your help! I need you to contact the bank on my behalf as the "CONSIGNEE"; claim the money and arrange to transfer the money to your country. Once this transferred to your country is made, you will send me ticket and visa to come and meet you in your country.

    There is absolutely NO RISK to you; please reach me through this confidential Email for more introductions.

    I am waiting for your response soon.
    Sincerely
    Miss Patricia Ukpali.

    Turning a Scammer Into a Hero: An Email Exchange
    By: Soren Bowie August 08, 2011 140,904 views
    Add to Favorites


    I don't mean to brag, but I own a lot of email accounts. I've accumulated them over the past few years for reasons ranging from scientific experimentation and to signing up for services with which I'm not particularly proud to be affiliated. When they've served their purpose, I rarely use them again except to sign a petition forced on me by some sincere and persistent activist, or to stuff the ballot during free car giveaways in malls.

    The prize means far less to me than being the winner of everything.
    Even though I have yet to win a PT Cruiser, what I have received is far more valuable: Opportunity. My email addresses have been shared with thieves all over the world who would like us both to pretend that they are princes and dying millionaires. The trouble is that most of my email accounts belong to characters I made up as well, so even if I respond, it's really just a bunch of imaginary people emailing each other about money that doesn't exist. Still, it's not enough for me to ignore these scammers completely, they have developed layered and elaborate characters and then squandered them on duplicity. As a writer, I cannot abide by that. I want to offer these fictitious people a chance to redeem themselves, a chance to trade in their pretend riches for real riches of the heart. What follows is an email exchange I shared with a make-believe dying woman and how I forced her to become a hero, despite herself.

    Dear Friend,
    I am Mrs. Elizabeth Etters from Iceland, married to Late Engr Brown Etters {PhD} who worked with MULTINATIONAL OIL COMPANY EXXON AS A DRILLING RIG SUPPLIER in Kuwait for 19 years before he died on the 22th August 2008. We were married for twenty four years without a child. Before his death, he deposited the sum of USD 2,142,728.00 Dollars with a bank In Canada and this fund is presently with the bank awaiting my disbursement as beneficiary and next of kin to the funds. Recently, my Doctor told me that I would not last for the next Eight months due to cancer problem. Upon your reply I shall give you the contact of the bank. I will also issue a letter of authorization to the bank that will prove you the present beneficiary of this money. Reply to my very confidential email address below {[email protected]}
    Await your responds and God bless you.

    Good day to you,
    I am very grateful to you for the interest shown in my plight and I want to assure you that you will be greatly rewarded for what you have chosen to do.
    My husband's relatives love only worldly things and they have used up my husband's wealth and property left behind. As I am here in the hospital they are around me and they have sold virtually all I have and what they wait to hear is that I am dead so that they lay their hands on my last belongings. My spirit directed me to you as I prayed and searched over the internet for someone to help me. You have to assure me you will keep this transaction confidential and you will be willing to contact the finance firm to finalize all necessary formalities as to the release of the fund to you. I would also like to know a little bit more about you. I require your urgent response. To prepare this document I will require your full names and address. With this document you will contact the finance firm to arrange the transfer of the fund to you.
    Mrs. Elizabeth Etters.

    Dear Elizabeth,
    I read your email. Holy cow you write a lot. Especially for someone who's dying. Your family sounds awful, I think your spirit was right in choosing me as your helper because I'm very trustworthy and nice and also a substitute teacher. I am not married and I just broke up with my long-term boyfriend a week ago, but it's good because he was boring.
    I will do whatever you want with the money and if you want me to spend it on myself then that's OK too. Once you are dead I will always remember you and pretend you are watching over me, even when I know it's probably not true because you are buried somewhere.
    I'm writing to let you know that I am in on this 100% and loyal and ready to do whatever you need. However, I am nervous about dealing with a bank because I don't trust banks. The bank on my street says that my ex-boyfriend froze my account. How do you unfreeze an account? I'm trying to get my account information back from him so that I can get all my money but in the meantime God has given me you and your money! Yay.
    Can I just give you my information and you pass it on to the bank and just have them mail me my money?

    Hi Liza,
    There are so many things I don't understand. I'm sorry to be such a sack of sour balls but I tried to open an account with your bank and they asked me for my account number and I don't know it. My ex-boyfriend has all that information. We split up in June and now I cannot get my stuff back from his place. I'm sure he'd be willing to help you because he loves money. His email is [email protected]. Please email him the information and let him know I sent you.

    I apologize for making you so upset. I didn't know any other way to get the account information. But I have a great idea! I'll email him your name and we can pretend that you are my lawyer and you can demand that he give me my account back. It's really unfair and probably illegal of him to block me out of it, I earned some of that money.

    Dear Soren,
    It has been over a month and though I sent you tons of emails and IMs, you're still hiding my account information. That savings account legally belongs to me and you better not have touched even twenty dollars in there or I will sue you so fast your pants will fall down. I have enlisted the power of an attorney to help in this matter, and she is cc'd on this email. If you don't comply, we will have no choice but to take legal action. You blew it big time.

    Marcy,
    Your lunacy knows no bounds. I don't have any interest in keeping your account from you, that's your allowance, and I don't want even a thousand dollars from it. But you will have to come by the house to pick up your things if you want the account number. I honestly just want you to be happy. I tried calling your seven times last week and you didn't answer once. I only ask for an opportunity to see you again. I bought a motorcycle. I know you always thought motorcycles were cool. You are the closest thing to my heart save my lungs, ribs and pecs.
    I'm floored that you hired an attorney to wield as an instrument of threat, I would never do that to you. In the future, should you want my attention, please just answer your phone once in awhile. If you insist on going to trial like a child instead of coming by our place like an adult to pick up your miscellanea, then I will hire an attorney of my own.
    Love,
    Soren

    Dear Madam,
    I can appreciate your position as a legal attorney representing my girlfriend and I'm not entirely certain that me contacting you is legal, however, I need your help. I love her. I want us to be together again like we were that photo from the park. I'm sympathetic to the fact that the law is blind in these circumstances and you provide legal counsel to whoever pays you, but please try to understand love is blind too, ma'am.
    I just ask that you put in a good word for me with Marcy. I'm more than willing to give her what she wants and we can all put this behind us. I just want her to come by the house. I think that if she sees the pictures on the walls and the cleanliness of the shower, she would agree that I have turned over a new leaf.
    Again, I'm sorry if this is unprofessional, I am asking you as one man to another. Thank you.
    Eternally grateful,
    Soren

    Ugh, he's so dramatic. He's just trying to trick you into helping him. Thanks for being so patient and for being on my team. If you have fees or charges for this kind of thing just let me know when this is all done and I will give you back some of your money.
    If you would, just email him as my lawyer and tell him you can't help him because it's goes against your code or something. Then tell him it's mandatory for him to turn over my account information. That will scare him into giving it back to me. Thanks again. Let me know how it goes!
    Your friend,
    Marcy

    Dear Mr. Kapow,
    You were wrong to contact me and acted illegally. My client, Marcy Thick would like to press charges against you to the full extent. I hope you are prepared to go to trial. My client has agreed to drop all charges if you agree to give her back her belongings and give her access to your joint account. She is very sick right now and needs the money you are keeping from her. On top of that, she would like you to pay my legal fees thus far. They amount to $585. We will await your quick response.
    Sincerely,

    Dear Elizabeth Etters, Attorney at Law/Medicine
    Sometimes at night I just lay awake. I don't know why, I just feel this hole in my chest. I miss Marcy I guess without really knowing it's her I'm missing anymore. Like when you leave your hands under a scalding hot faucet and after awhile you can't tell if it's really hot or really cold, all you can tell is that it hurts. I need her back. I can change, I can be whoever she wants me to be. Just please talk to her, let her know I still love her. I'll give her the account, I'll give her anything she wants if she will just come by the villa so we can talk.
    In accordance with her wishes, I sent a check to your offices in Sacramento for the requested amount.
    Heart sick,
    Soren

    Soren Kapow,
    The check will take a long time to clear here. I will not accept a check for that small amount of money. Please cancel the check. Dibia Charles is my secretary. I will only accept payment through western Union for that small amount. Kindly send it to: Dibia Charles Address: Bangkok, Thailand.

    I have sent him a letter as your lawyer and he has responded with fear, as you anticipated. He is also sad that you won't speak to him and he says he requests you go by his house just to talk. Then he will give you the account number. Please, I am a very sick woman and I don't have long for this world. I wish that you would go and see him and resolve your issues. He seems to love you very much. I think you two have a lot to resolve after I am gone. I hope you will do as I ask. When you have the account number please open your new account at [email protected]
    I need to get this money to you quickly.
    Your Sister,

    Oh my goodness, in all the confusion I completely forgot you were dying. I'm sorry I guess. I did what you said and I went to talk to him. You were right, he was real sorry and nice and soooo cute. I think we can make it work this time. Did you know he got a motorcycle? That's so cool. We own you a big hot pile of thank yous for what you did. You were so kind.
    So now for the sad part. I can't help you with your money anymore. My boyfriend still thinks you are my lawyer and he would be really mad if he found out you were just some dying lady. We can never tell anyone what really happened. Thanks again. I will always remember you when you are dead for as long as I can remember to.
    Love,
    Marcy

    Dear Mr. Kapow,
    You still have an outstanding balance with my law firm of the sum of $585. You have not sent the money order via Western Union as I requested. I assure you we take these matters very seriously and we will prosecute you with the full extent of the law if you do not pay.
    Because you are late in your payment, the amount has doubled to 1,160. Pay it as soon as possible to avoid another penalty or a jail sentence.

    Good Day!!

    I decided to write you this proposal in good faith, believing that you
    will not betray me.I have been in search of someone with the same last
    name of our late customer and

    close friend of mine (Mr. Richard), hence I contacted you because both
    of you bear the same surname and coincidentally from the same country,
    and I was pushed to contactyou

    and see how best we can assist each other. Meanwhile I am Mr. Fred
    Gamba , a reputable banker here in Accra Ghana .

    On the 15 March 2007, the young millionaire (Mr. Richard),a citizen of
    your country and Crude Oil dealer made a fixed deposit with my bank for
    36 calendar months, valued at

    US$17,500,000.00 (Seventeen Million, Five Hundred Thousand US Dollars)
    and the mature date for this deposit contract was on 31st of January,
    2011. But sadly he was among

    the death victims in the 12 May 2008, Earthquake disaster in China that
    killed over 5,000 people. Because he was in China on a business trip
    and that was how he met his

    end.

    My bank management is yet to know about his death, but I knew about it
    because he was my friend and I am his Account Relationship Officer, and
    he did not mention any Next

    of Kin/ Heir when the account was opened, because he was not married
    and no children. Last week my Bank Management requested that Richard
    should give instructions on what

    to do about his funds, if to renew the contract or not.

    I know this will happen and that is why I have been looking for a means
    to handle the situation, because if my Bank Directors happens to know
    that he is dead and do not

    have any Heir, they will take the funds for their personal use, so I
    don't want such to happen. That is why I am seeking your co-operation
    to present you as the Next of

    Kin/ Heir to the account, since you bear same last name with the
    deceased customer.

    There is no risk involved; the transaction will be executed under a
    legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of law. It
    is better that we claim the

    money, than allowing the Bank Directors to take it, they are rich
    already. I am not a greedy person, so I am suggesting we share the
    funds in this ratio, 50/50%, i.e.

    equal.

    Let me know your mind on this and please do treat this information
    highly confidential.

    I will review further informations / details to you as soon as I
    receive your positive reply in my private email address
    ([email protected] )

    Have a nice day and I Anticipating your communication.

    "I have always held the religion of Muhammad in high estimation because of its wonderful vitality. It is the only religion which appears to me to possess that assimilating capacity to the changing phase of existence which can make itself appeal to every age. I have studied him - the wonderful man and in my opinion far from being an anti-Christ, he must be called the Saviour of Humanity. I believe that if a man like him were to assume the dictatorship of the modern world, he would succeed in solving its problems in a way that would bring it the much needed peace and happiness: I have prophesied about the faith of Muhammad that it would be acceptable to the Europe of tomorrow as it is beginning to be acceptable to the Europe of today."
