Stupid Punts!

Stupid Punts!


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

Monday, July 31, 2006

I receive a large amount of crap from the spamming scumbag community, some of which makes an attempt to sound plausible. However, on occasions I receive something that is so badly written and so implausible that I wonder why the author ever wasted his time typing it out.

Here is one such example of utter crap. This author, who needs few lessons on how to write English, is under the delusion that I will believe him when he says that he found over $8M stored in some barrels in Iraq.

The only thing he says that has the ring of truth, is that he found the non existent money illegally.

Fall for this and you deserve to be conned.

Dear Sir, With a very desperate need for assistance, I have summed up courage to contact you. I am from (will disclose this later), presently working in Iraq with an international organisation that I will also disclose later, I found your contact particulars in an address journal. I am seeking your assistance to evacuate the sum of (US$8.523 Million Dollars) Eight Million five Hundred Thousand And Twenty Three Dollars to your country or any other safe country of your choice, as far as I can be assured that my share will be safe in your care untill I complete my service here,this is no stolen money, and there are no dangers involved. SOURCE OF MONEY: Some money in various currencies was discovered concealed in barrels with piles of weapons and ammunitions at a location near one of Saddam,s old palaces during a rescue operation, and it was agreed by all party present that the money be shared amongst us, this was quite an illegal thing to do, but I tell you what? no compensation can make up for the risks we have taken with our lives in this hell hole. The above figure was given to me as my share, and to conceal this kind of money became a problem for me, so with the help of a German contact working here, and his office enjoys some immunity, I was able to get the package out to a safe cation entirely out of trouble spot. He does not know the real contents of the package, and believes that it belongs to an Asian/American who died in an air raid, and before giving up, trusted me to hand over the package to his business associate. I have now found a secured way of getting the package out to a safer country for you to pick up, and will discuss this with you when I am sure that you are willing to assist me. One passionate appeal I will make to you is not to discuss this matter with a third party, should you have reasons to reject this offer, please destroy this mail as any leakage of this information will be too bad for us. I do not know for how long we will rem ain here, and I have survived 2 suicide bomb attacks by the special grace of God, this and other reasons I will mention later has prompted me to reach out for help, I honestly want this matter to be resolved immediately. Please contact me as soon as possible. Regards, Robert Taylor

the hospital my father told me that he deposited the sum of six million
US Dollars. (6 000,000 USD) left in suspense account in one of the
leading bank in Africa.
He further told me that he deposited the money in his name,and I as the
next of kin and finally issued a written instruction to his lawyer whom
he said is in possession of all the necessary legal document to all
his properties.
I am just 22 years old and a University undergraduate and really don’t
know what to do. Now I want an account overseas where I can transfer
this funds.
