It's a new one on me...

I can't see what the catch is with this, unless it's a phishing exercise.
Email from 'my good friend', that I've never met or heard off...

Hello my friend
 
How are you doing today? I wish to inform you that I finally succeeded in transferring the US$3.8 million to Japan where i am residing presently with my
only son. I decided to compensate you for your efforts in this transaction with the sum of $450,000 dollars which i made out in
an ATM Card and kept it with my spiritual father for you. Kindly Contact him immediately on the contact details described
below;
 
Rev. Father John Clegg
St. Mark Church of England
Phone: +234 8053003087

I thought, till I read further, that a seance may be necessary.
Out of interest, have you thought of ringing the number - reversing the charges, of course Cheesy

I think maybe I'll break up the phone number into digits to select numbers for three lotto. I'll have a better chance of getting something there.. Cheesy
But the truly worrying thing is that they keep sending these out, so someone must respond our they would stop doing it.

Re: It's a new one on me...

db you are being too harsh. There are some genuine generous dead Nigerian Princes out there. I've made contact with one who has personally guaranteed me $500,000 as a finders fee just as soon as my cheque clears.
