I had a good giggle at this spam email, which was thankfully flagged as such by my Gmail! I thought I’d post some of it for you to point and laugh at.
I already started giggling when I saw the subject!
MASSAGE FROM MR.H**** M******
Good Day To You,
I am Mr.H**** M****** , Chief Operating Officer with my Bank, This letter must come to you as a big surprise, but only a day people meet and become friends and business partners.
An Iraqi Foreign Oil consultant/contractor Mr.Thomas Stone made a fixed deposit with our bank in 2003, valued at US$16.500,000.00.million.
He was among the dead victims of island of Java magnitude 6.2 earthquake, Indonesia, just outside the city of Bantul. on May 27, 2006.
Mr.Thomas stone did not mention any Next of Kin/Heir when the account was opened, and am his account officer, right now our bank did not know about Mr.Thomas Stone death, and if they happen to know my Bank Directors will take the funds for their personal use. I am now seeking your co-operation to present you as Next of Kin to the account and my bank headquarters will release the money to you under a legitimate arrangement. so I am suggesting we share the fund, 35% for you while 65% of the fund will remain for me after successful transfer of the fund to your position until I join you there, why i want to do this deal is because in 4 months time i will resign from the Bank and start up my own company.
If you are interested to work with me , kindly send to me the following details;(1) Your direct mobile/fax number.
(2) Your full name and country resident address.
(3) Your private E-mail box.
(4) Your Age
(5) Your Occupation
As soon as i receive your response with following information, i will then send you form to fill and send to the Bank legal department for the release of the money to your nominated account without wasting any time. if you are interested please reply to this email ***********2@gmail dot com
I will be waiting for your response.
So not only does his spelling, capitalisation, grammar and punctuation suck, he’s screwing me over by taking the larger share of the cash!!
I really pity the people who still fall for these emails!
*the spelling mistake is deliverate since spam is littered with such errors
