(1) That I must be 22 years or above,
(2) That upon request for the release of the fund, there must be evidence of investment intentions especially outside the our country,

I contact you therefore to confirm if you can absorb me in partnership in your company or possibly advise me on any investment opportunity in your country. When we reach an agreement, the bank will transfer this money into an account that you shall nominate and I will come over to your country to finish my education and commence business partnership with you and the fund.

I guess that maybe, if I'm nice one day I'll get an offer to help someone spend a couple million dollars.

Hehe I look at my spam box

Some times and I could be a millionaire five or six times a week. :) Or I could get women to attack me, sell my house for ten times what it's worth.
Boy if these things worked I would be Bill Gates and a porn star!
Wait I could be both if I just order a life changing DVD and use my credit card.

Yes and what makes this one so believable is

That this person supposedly lives in an African Country, deals in US $ and has a UK Yahoo account.

Did I miss anything there?

I got one last week telling me that my Uncle the Oil Magnate in the UK had recently died like 15 years ago. At least they had the courtesy not to insult my intelligence and quoted UK Pounds with a UK Address so I sent them an e-mail back asking just what Uncle So & So was doing dealing in Oil when he had promised me to only deal in Clean Renewable Energy and since this supposed firm of solicitors had sent me their postal address I would be getting my UK QC's to contact them to settle my darling Uncles Estate. :^0

Within a day the e-mail address was inactive I'm betting that the PO Box had disappeared as well.

I then added that to my spam filter and that was the end of that.

You where probably lucky enough to get the same one from a different source.

Just goes to show how non-discriminating people are doesn't it?

That's the Reply-To address, contained within the body of the e-mail.

It's a standard JScript link, as shown below:


The e-mails were Sent from a French Yahoo account, but Replies are to be made to a UK one.

It would'nt do to favor one side of the Channel over the other, now, would it?

And didn't favour one side or the other. :^0

Maybe it's really Tony Blair attempting to get some money together to pay for his troop deployment as the British Government is running out of money fast and needs a Cash Injection.

But, don't they then have to clear Customs?

by deepsand In reply to That's the Reply-To addre ...

That would leave a trail that scammers would rather avoid.

Besides, e-mails are so much less costly than the Chunnel.

Not if they are German Sandy

They just roll across borders and claim the land as theirs when ever the mood takes them.

Don't tell the Poms but the entire UK to French Tunnel Idea was a German invention to save them the trouble of having to cross 21 miles of open ocean which in the past two attempts have proved such a problem to them. They all thought things would be so much easier if they just rode a few divisions of the German Army through the tunnel before the Poms realised what was happening.

Then they wouldn't have all those problems with that 21 miles of ocean that they have had previously. But I'll let you in on a Secret if you promise not to tell a single POM Germany now actually owns all of the UK so they are currently employing teams of Welsh Miners to cut away the foundations and then they are going to use a new German Invention to drag the UK into Germany where they can keep the place safe from those nasty Poms who have caused them so many problems over the years. :^0

The reason that they are using Welsh Miners is not to raise suspicion from the Poms as German Mining Engineers would attract too much unwanted attention. The good Germans got the idea for this from one of the Goodies Shows where Graeme Garden attempted to setup a Pirate Britain by removing the foundations and towing it outside the 5 mile limit. The Germans just perfected the idea. :)

In the Goodies Show instead of having a Pirate Radio Station it sounded so much better to have a Pirate Country as it saved the need to row past the 5 mile limit to get to their Radio Station. Of course in the last scene of that show it ended with the Statue Of Liberty outside the Windows of the Goodies home. Now not even Germany is nasty enough to allow that to happen and inflict the UK on an unsuspecting American Public. :^0
