Stupid Punts!

Stupid Punts!


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

This scammer attempts to pull at my heart strings, by pretending to be dying from cancer.

For good measure, she notes that her husband is dead; and that she has $25M, which she wants me to distribute to charity.

A nicely written piece of fantasy.

There is no $25M, she (more than likely it is a he) is not dying from cancer.

The scammer is trying to steal my id, and raid my bank account.

If you receive one of these, destroy it.


My name is Mrs.Mariam Ahmed, widow to late Mr.Hassan Ahmed former owner of Petroleum and Gas company, here in Kuwait. I am 68years old, suffering from long time cancer of the breast. From all indications my condition is really deteriorating and it's quite obvious that I won't live more than 2 months according to my doctors. This is because the cancer stage has gotten to a very bad stage. I don't need your sympathy but I need your trust.

My late husband died early last year from heart attack, and during the period of our marriage we had no child. For this reason, I was the heir to his vast businesses and wealth after his death. My doctors have informed me that I will not live for more than 2 months, which is a difficult thing to accept but I have accepted it in good faith. Still, I have one mission to accomplish in the limited time I have left and so I have now decided to spread all my wealth to contribute mainly to the development of charity in Africa, America, Asia and Europe.

Before my late husband died, he was a major oil tycoon in Kuwait and deposited the sum of 25 million dollars (Twenty Five million dollars) in a company in Europe some years ago, that is all I have left now and I need you to collect this funds and distribute it yourself to charity, so that when I die my soul can rest in peace. The funds will be entirely in hands and management. I hope God gives you the wisdom to touch very many lives, that is my main concern. 10% of this money will be for your time and effort, while 90% goes to charity.

I am sorry if you are embarrassed by my mail, I only found your e-mail address on the web directory and decided to contact you. But if for any reasons whatsoever you find this mail offensive, you can ignore it and please accept my apology.

God bless you.
