    I'm gonna be rich!!!

    Look at this!

    Subject: Get Back to me asap.
    Sender: Wright Steven Esq

    Dear Friend,

    I sincerely apologize for intruding into your privacy,especially by
    contacting you through this
    means for a business transaction of this magnitude,but due to its
    seriousness and urgency it therefore became necessary for me to seek for
    your assistance.I am Barrister Wright Steven(Esq), counsel to late Mr Roy J,
    a national of your country and was a seasoned contractor,here United
    Kingdom(London).

    He lost his life on the 12th March,2004 in a ghastly motor accident together
    with his wife and children ,Before his sudden and mysterious death,he
    deposited the sum of $5.5 Million US dollars with a Bank in a fixed account
    here in London which I was quite awareof as all the legal proceedings was
    duly carried out by my humble self.After his death,almost two years ago, i
    made several approaches to your embassy to locate any of his relatives so as
    to come and stand as the next of kin to my late client in order to have this
    huge sum transferred to his or her possession but all my effort proved
    abortive.

    After several unsuccessful attempts in locating any of his relations and the
    latest ultimatum given to me by the Bank, mandating me to provide my late
    client's next of kin within the next two weeks OR they confisticate the
    money, which i wouldn't live to see it happen,hence my decision to contact
    you so that i can present you as the next of kin to my late client.All I
    demand from you is your honest co-operation so that this fund {5.5million
    US dollars} can be transferred into any account of your choice within the
    shortest time possible.For your assistance and co-operation, I have decided
    to have the money shared as follows; 40% for you, 60% for me.

    What I introduced to you might be a smack of an unethical practice but this
    is a once in alifetime opportunity that is capable of making things better
    for us and moreover,if I fail to
    present to the Bank my late client's next of kin in the next couple of
    weeks,the truth is that this money would not be taken by the government but
    by some greedy officials of the Bank and i would not fold my arms and watch
    this happen hence my decision to contact you.

    I also want to use to this medium to assure you that this transaction is
    100% risk free and my position as the counsel to the late depositor of the
    fund, it has been legally planned to avoid any hitch or breach of law both
    during and after the transfer might have been effected to you. And
    also,every information that will back you up as the next of kin to my late
    client shall be given to you as soon as i have your consent. The following
    information will be required from you in your reply;
    1.} your full name,
    2.} your residential/contact address,
    3.} your phone/fax number,
    4.} your banking information,
    5.} your Occupation and;
    6.} your Age.
    For purpose of security and the confidentiality of this transaction you can
    reply this mail to this my private e-mail address;officewright1@yahoo.it

    I look forward to receive your positive response
    soonest.

    Yours Sincerely,
    Barr Wright Steven(Esq)
    First round at the gathering this year is on me!

    A guy who's able to call himself an Esquire would never deceive someone. Congrats!

    You'd be a fool NOT to take that deal!
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    You can tell it's real because they use that funny British language that sounds nothing like English:

    The sad part is that there are actually people who have responded to these emails and are gullible enought to give these people their vital info.

    A Yahoo email? How appropriate.

    Re: I'm gonna be rich!!!

    WOHHOO! I just got not one...but TWO similar emails, back to back! I am so in the money!

    Seriously:
    I am an administrator at a place called Simtropolis, a fansite for SimCity 4.
    Twice, I have received PMs such as the one zombie posted...yes, twice. Obviously, they were just going through the list of users online - or they would not have PMed a site administrator with such an offer!
    Yeah, both times, the person got banned.
    Meanwhile, ages ago, I stumbled across some great "Scam the scammers" sites, where people took a bunch of time - and sometimes money - from people attempting these scams. I remember one lady in particular who actually got the guy to meet her in person. She then set up a webcam, posting pictures of the guy standing impatiently in the designated spot.
    I can look for some links, if you folks want.
