I get them all the time Chris, just delete em mate.

Its nothing compared to the email I got this morning, here it is:

From Barr. Richard Jim,

barr_richardjimchambers@yahoo.com

Attn:Jenkin

I am Barrister Richard Jim, a solicitor at law,

personal attorney to Mr.B.P Jenkin,a national Of your

country,who used to work with Shell development

Company in Lome as a contractor, herein after shall be

referred to as my client.

On the 21st of April 2000, my client was involved in a

car accident along Nouvissi express Road. All

occupants of the vehicle including his wife and only

child unfortunately lost their lives. Since then i

have made several enquiries to your embassy hereto

locate any of my clients extended relatives in his

home country,this has also proved unsuccessful.

After these several unsuccessful attempts,I decided to

track his last name over the Internet, to locate any

member of his family hence I contacted you.I have

contacted you to assist in repartriating the fund

valued at US$12 million left behind by my client

before it gets confiscated or declared unserviceable

by the Continetal Investment trust Bank where this

huge amount was deposited. The said Continetal

Investment trust Bank has for sometime now issued me a

notice to provide the next of kin of my client or his

account shall be declared dormant or possibly

confiscated.

Since I have been unsuccesfull in locating the

relatives for over 2years now, I seek the consent to

present you as the next of kin to the deceased since

you have the same last names, so that the proceeds of

this account can be paid to you.

Therefore, on receipt of your positive response,

we shall then discuss the

sharing ratio and modalities for transfer. I have all

necessary information and legal documents needed to

back you up for claim. All I require from you is your

honest cooperation to enable us see this transaction

through.

I guarantee that this will be executed under

legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any

breach of the law.

Please get in touch with me through the above e-mail

for more details.

Best Regards.

Richard Jim(Esq).

Attorney-at-Law.

Now thats a scam if ever I saw one, but just imagine if it were true; a full collection of Lexus motors, one for every day of the week....... :whistling:

See

http://www.scamorama.com/

Where people who receive these well known scams try to sam the scammers, if you see what I mean. Entertaining stuff. I particularly like "Silver Dorks in the Sunset" featuring Sir Marmite Luny-Binns.

I sent my spammer a reply to mine yesterday telling him I was 99.9% sure this was a hoax, and to stop sending my crap. I also said that if he was sure that it was not a scam, then reply to me and I will get my company solicitor to have a look at it.

Guess what......he replied:

Dear Peter Jenkin,

Thank you for your mail.I want to reaffirm that this transaction is as free as breathing if carried out as planned with your cooperation.

There is nothing much left to do.I have done every arrangement here within the bank,This is why i contacted you.

I have also told them i will contact my clients next of kin for claim.All they are waiting for is presentation of the next of kin of my client Late

P.B Jenkin ,.The next thing we have to do is that i will send to you a letter of claim which you will fax to the bank as the beneficiary and next of

kin of this money.

In the application i will include all the account information of the deceased such that when the application is recieved the bank will transfer the funds on your instruction because every

information needed for evidence will be included in the application.In this way the bank will rely on this information provided and my letter introducing you to them.

My direct telephone number is (Ive deleted this bit). I will forward the claim application to you today once i get your response to this mail or telephone call from you as i want this transfer done as soon as possible.You can also give me your most private telephone number so we can discuss.

Warmest Regards,

Barr.Barrister Richard Jim.(ATTORNEY-AT-LAW).

NOTE-ALL I REQUIRE FROM YOU IS YOUR HONEST

CO-OPERATION TO ENABLE US SEE THIS TRANSACTION

THROUGH.I ALSO GUARANTEE THAT THIS WILL BE EXECUTED

UNDER LEGITIMATE ARRANGEMENT THAT WILL PROTECT YOU AND

I FROM ANY BREACH OF LAW.WE CAN STILL WORK IT OUT AS A

DEAL IF YOU KNOWS THAT YOU ARE NOT RELETED TO THIS MY

DECEASED CLIENT

Well guys, I think this is defo a big scam, if you read between the lines he is asking me to help him by telling lies !. Ive a mate in the police aswell so I might get him involved. Some poor old lady somewhere has probably fallen for this and lost all her money or something.

Pete

IT IS DEFINTELY A SCAM

by all means have a laugh, string them along etc - but do not under any circumstances believe that this is real, that this money exists, or that you will get any money.

You will be asked for small, but increasingly larger, amounts of cash, for a variety of things, filing charges, transaction charges.

Yep, definately a scam, and judging by the style probably eminates from Nigeria. I have seen a number of these over the years at the Bank. They are just after your banking details to effect a fraud.

Funny thing is that a lot of 419'ers are based in the UK or Europe :P

There is a case of a guy in southern ireland being rumbeled when he was using a "net" cafe by the cafe's admin bloke I will try and find the article as I am sure it was on the register :D

flippin eck lads, I aint daft. I was stringing him along. His phone he gave was in Mannila ! I tracked down a website of a Barrister called richard jim, and sent copies to him. He emailed me let me know he was well peeved.

I knew it was a scam lads, and he made a mistake as Shell Development are one of my customers !! :lol:

sadly, someone somewhere will probably fall for it !!
