Hello,
I am a straight forward person and this is the same way I would like for
you to respond to this email, should you be interested or not.
I know that this message will come to you as surprise as we do not know
each other. I am Mr. James Manager, ex-Commissioner of Works, Delta State,
Nigeria (1999 - 2003) under the tenure of Chief James Ibori, former
governor of Delta State, Nigeria (May 29, 1999 - May 29, 2007). I write to
you because I need your partnership to secure a huge sum amassed through
contracts awarded via my ministry (Ministry of Works). If interested,
contact me for additional information by simply replying this email.
I look forward to your reply.
Regards,
James Manager.

Re: Kind offer from Nigeria

You might also get a similar request from the "defunct" oil minister`s wife...... Her husband was tragically killed in a road accident, leaving her with 5 kids and about U.S.$20million in his bank account, and she, and the kids are living on handouts..... Boo hoo!  Boo Hoo!  boo hoooooooooooo!

What happened with the wonderful "postini" machine then?  or did you dig it out for our delectation?
Perhaps they should also put in some new software      Scam      Not Scam  and see if that works any better than the Spam  Not Spam...... ! ! ! think I put a smiley on here  Cry

Re: Kind offer from Nigeria

I'm not sure they're all from Nigeria!  I received this one last month.
Postini/Plusnet only marked it X-pn-pstn: Spam 3 making sure I didn't miss out on the offer!

Hello Friend,

I am a liberian and was the personal aide on domestic affairs to our former president,Mr.Charles Taylor.
I am currently in Dakar,Senegal and would need your co-operation in moving out some funds from here for investments in your country.
For your help,i will be happy to share the funds with you according to an agreed percentage, Please indicate your interest in working with me so that i can give you full details.
If i do not hear from you in 7 days, i shall consider it
that you are not favourably disposed to accept my offer.
Thanks,
Peter  Sean West

Re: Kind offer from Nigeria

Seriously for a moment; Is anybody really taken in by these obvious scams? and if they are, don't they deserve what they get...
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Re: Kind offer from Nigeria

Hi Peter,
Short answer      "probably"...... but it is usually those who have, for a very long life, "treated others as you expect to be treated by them.".... AND usually, they see a small bank account balance, which they are struggling to maintain, "for a rainy day", and as "trusting people", trust the person sending the email, to "re-imburse" them and not "re-distribute" their hard earned/saved cash.....

I thought that a great many of the "419ers" lived in and operated from Holland.
Whilst we might laugh they do catch enough people to make it worth while.

Re: Kind offer from Nigeria

Talking of the implausible had this a couple of years ago

As part of his plan to let the Yanks know he is not only still alive but ready to kick ass, Saddam sent a letter to George W Bush. The letter was immediately recognised as from the former dictator of Iraq and was detoxified and checked for explosives before being opened. In it was a single sheet of paper with the characters
'370HSSV 0773H'
The president couldn't work out what this meant, so he had an aid type a copy and sent it to that very smart man, Donald Rumsfeld, The Secretary of Defence and his aids studied it for a week, using the most powerful code-cracking computers the NSA could come up with, and they were still stymied. They sent it on to Langley, where CIA similarly had no luck - no joy there - and MIT. Nobody could make sense of the message.
Eventually they called in the Mossad, Israel's secret service. They looked at it for a few minutes and then e-mailed back to Washington: "Tell the President he's looking at the message upside down."

Re: Kind offer from Nigeria

Somehow, I keep winning lotteries I never entered.
Is anyone else as lucky as I am?
