      Re: Are people really this stupid

      I got this today...

      Dear Friend,

      I know that this mail will come to you as a surprise as we have never met before, but need not to worry as I am contacting you independently of my investigation and no one is informed of this communication. I need your urgent assistance in transferring the sum of $15,million immediately to your private account.The money has been here in our Bank lying dormant for years now without anybody coming for the claim of it.
      I want to release the money to you as his business partner, to our deceased customer (the account owner) who died a long with his supposed NEXT OF KIN since 31 January 2007. The Banking laws here does not allow such money to stay more than 13 years,because the money will be recalled to the Bank treasury account as unclaimed fund.
      By indicating your interest I will send you the full details on how the business will be executed.
      Please respond urgently and delete if you are not interested

      Regards,
      Mr Hasib Fattah

      Re: Are people really this stupid

      I seem to remember of one guy who responded to the Nigerian scam by asking for $50 to open a new account specially for the n millions he was promised. Apparently he got his $50 and the Nigerians never heard from him again.
      There again, it could have just been an urban myth.

Your fund will be transferred to you directly from our source with immediate effect and we shall give you further details on how your fund will be released.

      Re: Are people really this stupid

      I think the cruelest ones are from those who steal your phone, laptop or tablet and hack your email account. From there they then send emails to all your contacts advising them that you have lost all your money or are in jail or have been kidnapped.

      From there they milk your friends for as much money as they can send in order to get you out of trouble.
