And yet, I cannot remember evan joining the lottory, i'm 12 for Pete's sake.
I also got this:
From Mr Mohamed Waleed
Bank of Africa,
Ouagadougou Burkina Faso.
West Africa.
Dear Friend,
I know that this letter may come to you as a surprise.I got your contact address
from Burkina Faso chamber of commerce while i was searching for somebody that has
similar name with our deceased customer.
I am the manager of bill and exchange Bank of Africa (B.O.A) at Foreign Remittance
Department.There is a business I would want you to champion for me.In my
department we discovered an abbandoned sum of (US$31.500.000.00) Thirty One
Million Five Hundred Thousands US Dollars) in an account that belongs to one of
our foreign customer who died along with his entire family in 11th September 2003
in a plane crash.
Unfortunately we learnt that all his supposed next of kin's or relation died along
side with him in the plane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim.It is
therefore upon this discovery that I now decided to make this business proposal to
you and release the money to you as the next of kin or relation to the deceased
for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and I donât
want this money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill.
I agreed that 20 % of this money will be for you as foreign partner,in the respect
of the provision of a foreign account,and 10 % will be set aside for the expenses
incured during this business and 70 % would be for me.Thereafter,i will visit your
country for disbursement according to the percentage indicated.Therefore,to enable
the transfer of this fund to you as arranged,you must first apply to the Bank as
relation or next of kin of the deceased indicating your Bank name,your Bank
account number,your private telephone and fax number for easy and effective
communication and location wherein the fund will be remitted.
All modalities of this transaction have been carefully worked out and once started
will not take more than Fourteen working days to complete the transfer process
with your full support.This transaction is 100% risk free,it involve no any
implication and no precaution thereafter.Upon receipt of your reply,i will send
you by fax or email the text of transfer application form which you will fill and
send to the Bank.
I will not fail to bring to your notice that this transaction is hitch free,that
you should not entertain any atom of fear as required arrangement has been made
already for the succesful transfer of this fund.
You should contact me immediately as soon as you receive this letter.
Trusting to hearing from you immediately.
Yours faithfully
Mohamed Waleed
Now, things weird about that, if the family died in 2003, they would of found the cash well before now.
2) I have had this exact same messages over 10 times (This includes my main hotmail account)
3) As I said before, I'M 12!
Now, lastly I got this e-mail from a fake Barclays e-mail:
Dear Barclays Electronic Banking user!
It's has come to our attention that your Barclays account information needs to be updated
as part of our continuing commitment to protect your account and to reduce the instance

If you are not customer of The Barclays Personal and Business please delete this letter!
*** This is robot generated email, please do not reply ***
And witch actually makes me laugh with all these scams going around. Anyway, as we said, this is completely scamming and spamming actually people's accounts, they know we know it's a scam, so why constantly send it?

P.S. All these messages where directly copied and pasted from my e-mail.

Yep folks, Try and avoid this kind of stuff at all costs. If you open something and find anything like this, delete it. its probably ether a scam or scandal that can really get you in trouble bigtime. trust me when I say this that it's not worth it man, period

Other times its just some ignoramuses trying to get a rise out of someone. I hate people like that, do some people really not have anything else better to do that raise hell with other people or what? come on now!
