Funniest scam ever

Received this poor but very funny attempt at a scam...thought I'd try and scam the scammer and see if I can actually get their account details.

My Dear One,


My warmest greeting to you in the name of the Lord.

I am Miss Sandrine Kamal, I inheritated an important sum from my late father who died in recent crisis in Cote d'Ivoire. I wish to request for your assistance in investing this sum in lucrative venture or manufacturing and real estate management in your country. I have Ten million, Five hundred thousand United State Dollars. USD($10,500,000) to invest in this transaction and I will require your assistance in receiving the fund in your account in your country. I will gladly give you resonable percent from the total sum for your assistance.

Before his death on october 2009, he gave me all the necessary legal documents to the deposit of the fund in the bank, I am 19 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 and after the transaction I will come and reside permanently in your country till such a time that it will be convinient for me to return back home if I so desire. This is because I have suffered a lot of set backs as a result of incessant political crisis here in Ivory coast. The death of my father actually brought sorrow to my life. I also want to invest the fund under your care because I am ignorant of business world.

I am in a sincere desire of your humble assistance in this regards. Your suggestions and ideas will be highly regarded. Now permit me to ask these few questions:
1. Can you honestly help me from your heart?
2. Can I completely trust you?
3. What percentage of the total amount in question will be good for you after the money is in your account?

Please, consider this and get back to me as soon as possible. Immedaitely I confirm your willingness, I will send to you my picture and also give you more details about myself and the bank were my late father deposited the fund, so that you can reach the bank and confirm the existence of the fund as well, because seeing is believing.

Awaiting your immediate response and may God bless you.

For more details Reply Me Back Here [email protected]

With love,
Miss Sandrine Kamal



Wow it sounds like you've had a really hard time, I understand you must be very frustrated to be in the position you are in, of. I would be very willing to help, but continuously I must be cautious to giving my bank details out over the intersection. Would you be able to photocopy a form indentification for me and email it back over? Then we can continue to expand the process. Just out of interest have you ever been to the uk? Maybe if you are able to come we could meet and be merry? Anyhoos let me know if you are able to send some Id and also a photo of the will, if you will. ARE?

So good haste, may we wish you a welcome carrot for your pleasenteries.

Hello Sandy!

Sorry I haven't got back to you earlier, my cat got stuck down a drain and I have been trying to extract her. To make things worse I fell down the drain myself and was stuck there all day! I think I've developed a complex about drains now as every time I walk past one I seem to need the loo.

Anyhoos, back to business. So I've been having a think about the cut I would need, how does 63% sound? I'll throw in my old Toyota Landcruiser if you like, it's a really great little cake, I sometimes take my cat to Whitby bay in it on Sundays.

Apologies for the late reply my dear one!!

He requires your account details, so if you could please send me these as soon as possible we can get the preverbial ball rolling. In the words of Mick jagger, rock on!

Hello Miss Sangria

Before my bank manager can call you I need your account details, could you please send them to me. I am unable to call at the moment as my phone is broken (my cat nibbled through the power cable, she got quite a nasty electric shock and has subconsciously lost a lot of fur in the accident!) Once you give me your account details the bank manager says it will call your bank, but not without these details first....it's very temperamental these days.

Terminally,

David Rose

now that is some funny ****.

i have a friend who totally fukks with those spammers, too.

at one point, she promised one of these scammers she would meet him at the border somewhere between two north African countries on some specific date - and then of course, she did not show up.

apparently, the scammer was out in some godforsaken region of the desert all night waiting for her to show up. he was furious, and e-mailed her continuously for weeks after that.




FWIW, i think those spammers use NI Reaktor to compose those oh so convoluted letters...heh

(not as bad as some posters here, tho heh).

That is great. Sad how desperate some people in the world are to get money, scary what lengths they'll go to to get it... but still, that's pretty damn funny.

i know...it is CRAZY.

but it's always been this way.

think of what people did during the depression just to survive.

or what people in Pakistan, Palistine, India, Ethiopa, etc. do everyday to survive.

(even in our own inner cities and poor rural areas, i think it's different in Calgary. haven't been there in years).
