Laugh out Loud
 
Just recieved this spam, you've got to give them credit for inventivness! Brilliant couldn't stop laughing

MY BLESSINGS,

My name is Mrs.Hannah Jack Williams I am a dying woman who have decided to
donate what I have to you/Organization. I am 59 years old and I was diagnosed
for cancer about 2 years ago,immediately after the death of my husband, who
had left me everything he worked for. I have been touched by God to donate
from what I have inherited from my late husband to you for the good work of
God than allow my relatives to use my husband hard earned funds ungodly.

Please pray that the good Lord forgive me my sins. I have asked God to forgive
me and I believe he has because He is a merciful God. i will be going in for
an operation tomorrow morning I decided to WILL/donate the sum of $3,500,000
(Three million five hundred thousand dollars) to you/Organization for the good
work of the lord, and also to help the motherless and less privilege and also
for the assistance of the widows according to (JAMES 1:27).

At the moment I cannot take any telephone calls right now due to the fact that
my relatives are around me and my health status. I have adjusted my WILL and
my Executor is aware I have changed my will, you and him will arrange the
transfer of the funds from the Private Finance company to your humble self.

This decision was taking after going through your personal profile. I wish you
all the best and may the good Lord bless you abundantly,
Please use the funds well and always extend the good work to others.

Contact my Executor with this specified Email:

Looks like a standard 419 scam to me. Is it really your first time? Bless :msnwink:

Just in case you don't what 419 is:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Advance_fee_fraud

How to become a 419er:
Type "nigerian email conference" into google and click "I'm feeling lucky"

I've had these 419ers in other formats, notably lotto wins, but this one is a first for me, no subtlety involved, just send all your details straight away rather than the normal process of initial contact of interest and then provision of details. It's also far more entertaining than some of the others, as I said 10/10 for inventivness.

I've never had one of those emails, so I'm still a 419 virgin :msncry:

Remain Blessed

I get dozens of them, the latest twist is from the Nigerian Internet Crime Unit (lots of other names too) and they say your name has come up as someone who is a victim of a 419 scam and can guarantee to help you get it back. Of course, you have to pay up-front. Visit 419eater.com for some funny stories, I've had some fun with them over the years (not with my real e-mail address or ID of course...)

Do any of you know 419 eaters? Well these guys bait scammers and get trophies. It's classic.

here is a video a scam baiter got a scammer to make, it's the python dead parrot sketch.

Also, if you really want to laugh, take a look at 419eaters - be sure to check out the gallery.

IMHO much better than 419eaters is the ebolamonkeyman website http://www.ebolamonkeyman.com/

Very funny and has a great photo gallery.
