Stupid Punts!

Stupid Punts!


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

Thursday, September 13, 2007

"Doctor" Samuel Nelson asks me to treat his scam email as urgent. In it he asks me to help him steal a non existent $18M from the account of a dead foreigner.

"Doctor" Nelson assures me that this act of theft would be legitimate.

However, I have done as "Doctor" Nelson asked; and "urgently" trashed his scam email.

Dear Friend,

Re: Transfer of $18,000.000. (Eighteen Million US Dollars)

We want to transfer to overseas {$18,000,000] Eighteen Million United States
dollars from Eco International Bank Nig Plc.I would like to know if you will be
capable and fit to Provide either an existing Bank account or to set up a new
Bank account immediately to receive this money, evenan empty account can
serve to receive this money as long as you will remain honest to me till the end
of this important business transaction.

I am Dr Samuel Nelson Director of Accounts Department of Eco International
Bank plc, during the course of our auditing I discovered a floating fund in an
account opened with our Bank in 2000 and since 2002 nobody has operated on
this account again, after going through some old files in the records I discovered
that the owner of the account died without a heir hence the money is floating
and if I do not remit this money out urgently it will be forfeited for nothing.

The owner of this account was Engr. Anthony Hamill, a national of your
country an Industrialist. He died since 2002 and no other person knows about
this account or anything concerning it,the account has no beneficiary and my
investigation proved to me as well that Engr. Anthony Hamill until his death
was a Manager with an oil firm in Nigeria.

I am contacting you as a foreigner because this Money can only be approved to
a foreigner with a foreign account because the money is in us dollars and the
former owner of the account Engr. Anthony Hamill is a foreigner. I am revealing
all these information to you with the belief that you will never let me down in
this business. You are the first and the only person I am contacting for the
business so please reply urgently for me to tell you the next step to take.

You should forward the following information: Your telephone/fax numbers
and your Residential address, which is also needed. You will have to give me the
assurance that when we meet, this money will be intact pending our physical
arrival in your country for sharing and disbursement of the fund which will be
35% for your assistance, 60% will be for us while 5% will be set aside to take
care of all the expenses that would be incurred by both parties during the
course of the transfer.

All I require is your honest co-operation to enable us see this deal through.I guarantee
that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from
any breach of the law. Please get in touch with me by my alternative email
( immediately you receive this letter for further clarifications.

Yours faithfully,

Dr. Samuel Nelson
