Stupid Punts!

Stupid Punts!


Examples of the "Nigerian scam" that flood my email box everyday.

This scumbag has written to me twice in the last 48 hours.

He claims to work for a UK bank, and asks me to commit fraud.

Needless to say, even if the money that he claims to exists really did exist (and of course it doesn't), I have no intention of participating in his "zero risk" scheme.

Dear Friend,

Do accept my sincere apologies if my mail does not meet your personal
ethics. I will introduce myself as Mr John.O.West,a staff in the accounts
management section of a well-known bank here in the United Kingdom. One of
our accounts with holding balance of £15,000,000(Fifteen Million British
Pounds) has been dormant and has not been operated for the past 5 years.

From my investigations and confirmations, the owner of this account a
foreigner by name Austin Martins died in August 2000 and since then nobody
has done anything as regards the claiming of this money because he has no
family members who are aware of the existence of neither the account nor the
funds. Also Information from the National Immigration states that he was
also single on entry into the UK.

I have secretly discussed this matter with some of the bank officials and we
have agreed to find a reliable foreign partner to deal with. We thus propose
to do business with you, standing in as the next of kin of these funds from
the deceased and funds released to you after due processes have been
followed. This transaction is totally free of risk and troubles as the fund
is legitimate and does not originate from drug, money laundry, terrorism or
any other illegal act. On your interest, let me hear from you.
