See I used to correct their terminology, send them pointers on how to sound more authentic. there was one who was using Barrister in their name while making references that only a solicitor would make.

My boyfriend gets a lot of spam in Yiddish which is funny since he's Jewish but isn't practicing.  He believes it's some kind of conspiracy thought up by his family to guilt him into going to Temple.

I just prefer being told that although I am a female my baby maker is too small and If I just give a college drop out living in South America my credit card number I could be "slamming an extra four inches into her" by next Tuesday.
I am not above projectile vomiting to get my way

man, I don't get any cool spam...I checked, all they want me to do is buy fake rolexes. Oh and there was one that claimed they had a video of my neighbor showering. I checked the info on the link it provided, and it was an .exe instead of a video file. I wonder if people really are stupid enough to download what they think is a video of their neighbor showering coming from a stranger... ???

Hey c'mon, I knew it was a virus, I just wanted to see how clever they were. But when I checked it out, it blatantly told me it was a .exe file. These spammers have no imagination.

Oh, and trust me, the last thing I want to see is my neighbor showering.

Got this today:

FROM THE DESK OF MR. ODOKO YAHAYA
CHAIRMAN ECOWAS CONTRACT AWARDING
COMMITTEE ECOWAS FUND HEADQUARTERS
PMB.5028 ACCRA-REPUBLIC OF GHANA
ALTERNATIVE EMAIL: odokoyahaya@gmail.com
ACCOUNT PROVISION FOR USD45.5MILLION

Attn,Good Friend

I am Mr. Odoko Yahaya. The chairman, Contract-Awarding Committee of the Economic Community of West African states (ECOWAS) with its fund headquarters in Accra Ghana. I got your information in a professional database when I was searching through Internet for a reliable, honest and trustworthy person to entrust this business with. I was simply inspired and motivated to pick your contact from the many names in the list of the directory. After discussing my view and your profile with my colleagues, they were very much satisfied and decided to contact you immediately for this mutual business relationship. We wish to transfer the sum of USD45.500, 000.00 (FORTY FIVE MILLION FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND UNITED STATES DOLLARS ONLY) into your personal or company's bank account.

This fund was a residue of the over invoiced contract bills awarded by us intentionally for the supply of hard/soft wares, pharmaceuticals/ medical items, light and heavy duty vehicles, apparels and other administrative/logistics for the ECOMOG in Sierra-Leone and Liberia during the peace keeping projects. This deal was deliberately hatched out and carefully protected with the cooperation and mandate of the financial director and the secretary of the organization. We arranged and over invoiced the contract funds supplied by different companies from different countries during the crisis. It was our consensus to seek the assistance of a willing foreigner to provide us with the facilities to transfer this money out of West Africa . This is borne out of our belief in the non-stable and porous political nature of this sub-region.

The original contractors have been duly paid by ECOWAS banker through the central bank of Ghana and finance ministry. The balance is suspended in the ECOWAS grand account awaiting claims by any foreign partner of our choice to receive the fund on our behalf now ECOWAS is intending to pay all their outstanding balance of their contractors this year as the organization is winding up its activities since the aim of returning peace to the countries and the coast has been achieved Based on the laws and ethics of employment, we as civil servants working under this organization, are not allowed to operate/own a foreign account. This is more reason why we needed your urgent assistance to provide an account that can sustain this fund for safe keeping and our future investment with your comprehensive advice, assistance and partnership in your country. It is however agreed, as the account owner in this deal to allow you 30% of the entire sum as compensation, 65% will be held on trust fo r us while 5% will be used to defray any incidental charges and cost during the course of the transaction.

This transaction will be successfully concluded within 14 days if you accord us your unalloyed and due cooperation. You should provide the followings for immediate kickoff of this deal if it interests you; your company's names with complete address, tel. and fax numbers. (If available) the NAME OF YOUR BANK, ITS ADDRESS WITH TEL.,FAX AND TELEX NUMBERS, THE ACCOUNT NUMBER THE COMPLETE MAILING ADDRESS OF THE BENEFICIARY WITH TELEPHONE AND FAX NUMBERS. Upon the receipt of this information, application for claim will be sent to you to fill and return back to the organization in pursuit of the claim legally and then be forwarded to the organization for ratification and subsequent payment. As with the case of all organized (sensitive) and conspired deals, we solicit for your unreserved confidentiality and utmost secret in this business.

We hope to retire peacefully and lead honorable business life afterwards. There are no risks involved. Kindly expedite action if you are interested as we are behind schedule to enable us utilize this golden opportunity pay out this fund immediately which we might stand to loose, if we fail to provide a safe account for this transfer on time at the expiration of this year ECOWAS has mapped out for payment of all their outstanding contractors and the dissolution of our committee. Please urgency is needed as we do not know the time our organization will start the payment hence it is necessary to start on time to forestall any hitch while transferring the fund into your designated account.

Hoping to hear from you in my ALTERNATIVE EMAIL: odokoyahaya@gmail.com

Best regards.

Mr. Odoko Yahaya

                                                            FROM:  WILLIAMS PETER

                              ASSISTANCE REQUIRED FOR TRANSFER OF US$16.9M AND ACQUISITION OF PROPERTIES (REAL ESTATES]
 
,   


I am making this contact with you on behalf of mycolleagues. I am a member of the TENDER BOARD COMMITTEE of the Federal Ministry of Works and Housingof Lagos Nigeria. Our duties includes: award,evaluation and review of contracts.In 1996, my committee (TBC) awarded a contract of US$150,000,000(One Hundred and Fifty Million United States Dollarsonly) to a joint venture of SPEIBATIGNOLES and FOUGEROLLE, for an engineering,procurement,construction of pipeline network a Eleme Petro-Chemicalplant. As it were, the acutal contract sum was deliberately over-invoiced by us (TBC) with the sum ofUS$18.9,000,000.00 (Eighteen  MILLION  Nine Hundred Thousand UNITED STATES DOLLARS ONLY). The project was executed,commissioned and the contractor(s) paid accordingly.My colleagues and I want to transfer the over-invoiced amount into a viable foreign account.

We have therefore resolved that as long as you can act as the solebeneficiary of the fund. The following will be the mode of sharing:
25% for beneficiary i.e. owner of account, 10% for expense incurred during the course of transfer, and 65% for us the officials.


Let me reiterate at this juncture, that there are top and influential government officials involved in this transfer and as such I would appreciate it, if this business is treated with utmost confidentiality.I do hope I can trust you as regards this matter.

In the light of this, I would like you to forward to me the following information: 1. Your company name and address if any 2. Your personal fax number 3. Your personal telephone number for easy communication. This will enable us to forward the information to the Corporation for purposes of processing and immediate remittance of this funds to the account that will be provided by you.All modalities have been worked out and the necessary machinery put in
place with the officials of the Federal Ministry of Finance and the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to effect this transfer within the shortestpossible time. It is worthy to note that this transaction is 100% risk free, my only fear is the confidentiality of this business from your
end.

It ispertinent to note that only an expatriate firm can lay claim to thisfund. We are barred from operating foreign accounts as civil servants still serving the government.

As soon as the payment is effected, and the amount mentioned above is successfully transferred into your account, we intend to use own share in acquiring some properties (Real Estates) Abroad. For this too, you shall also serve as our agent. Please send your reply through this my email address.

I shall send you my phone number as we progress. Note that this E-mail is not one of those Internet jokes and should be treated with seriousness, utmostimportant and confidentiality. Your quick response will be highly appreciated.

If however, you are notdisposed to assist, kindly destroy this letter, inview of the confidentiality of the proposed transaction and for the interest of the personalities involved.

WILLIAMS. PETER

My last name is not, in fact, Fox.  But hey, maybe I can fake it for a 40% share of the sum of Seventeen Million United States Dollars!  What do you think?

Thing is, there's not even a link for male enhancement pills or Rolex Watches. I don't even know what the spammer was trying to accomplish. :^)
