Stupid Punts!

Stupid Punts!


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

Tuesday, October 03, 2006

This scammer has written the usual formulaic scam letter:

1 She invokes God

2 She claims that her father was poisoned

3 Large sums of money and diamonds are mentioned

4 I am offered a percentage if I help her transfer/invest the money

As with all of these emails, it is a scam; do not fall for it.

After the death of my mother, as a motherless girl my father took me so special because i was motherless and he cared for me.Before the death of my father on 25th june 2003 in a private hospital in CONGO he secretly called me beside and told me that he has a sum of $10.750 MILLION DOLLARS (Ten Million Seven Hundred and Fifty Thousand US DOLLARS) which he deposited with a fiduciary fund holdder in BOTSWANA, he told me that he used my name as his only daughter and the person that will inherit the deposited fund. he also explained to me that it was because of his wealth that he was poisoned by his business associates that i should seek for a foreign patner in the country of my chioce where i will transfer this money to and also use it judiciously for investment purposes (such as real estate management,construction companies, commerce etc) now i am honourably seeking your assistance in the fellowing ways.
