I guess you actually have to contact them to find out that you first must pay the taxes, probably in the amount of 5,000 GBP before you can claim the prize.

And I have some swamp land in Florida I'd like to sell cheap. I bought it from Mike last year so you know it's good.

LOL Deer, I already got that one several times and the African minister of Finance stuff and lots of other stuff too. I must be quite popular because they all want to use my 'safe account' ha ha.

That's possibly half of the "winners", don't you think? Your odds could get better, Titia...

but don't bet your ruby slippers on it!

Sadly there are people that respond to this garbage~

LOL ... you wouldn't want to read what I sometimes respond to them with !!
But, on the other hand ... knowing you, I'll bet you would !

BUT ... letting you know that I always, always copy the headers of the message and send it to the proper authorities~

When your ship comes in ... I wanna be your First Mate, matey~

Love ya' ... rich or not~

My favorite is the rich billionaire oil driller from some african contry dies with no living relatives. But you just happen to have the same last name....  The guy Needs to know your first name, location, date of birth, middle name, Mothers maiden name,  and finally the social security number.  If you were to comply, then he would share half of his share.  the reason he just cant claim it, because he is a native what ever to that contry. Yeah there is nothing fishy about that story!
and finally a statement of gratitude.

lol

Hey Marge, as tempting as it is sometimes, you should never reply to any of those messages. That just lets them know that your email is real and you can expect to receive a whole lot more junk.

HeyNotA~
Thankee ... good advice for those who aren't familiar with the process~

I blacklist them through my mail server and report them to the proper authorities too~

Believe it or not ... I don't get those email solicitations anymore !

I let the Internet authorities take the ability to continue their scams away from them~

Caution is the best advice always~

This one's got a whole new angle. Didn't know it yet.


MY BLESSINGS,

My name is Mrs. Karen Grant Smith I am a dying woman
who have decided to donate what I have to you/ church.
I am 59 years old and I was diagnosed for cancer about
2 years ago, immediately after the death of my husband,
who had left me everything he worked for.I have been touched
by God to donate from what I have inherited from my late
husband to the you for the good work of God than allow
my relatives to use my husband hard earned funds ungodly.

Please pray that the good Lord forgive me my sins. I have asked God
to forgive me and i believe he has because He is a merciful God.
I will be going in for an operation tomorrow morning.
I decided to WILL/donate the sum of $5,500,000(five million five
hundred thousand dollars) to you for the good work of the lord, and also to
help the motherless and less privilege and also for the assistance of the
widows according to (JAMES 1:27).

At the moment I cannot take any telephone calls right now due to my pressing
health problem. I have adjusted my WILL and my Executor is aware I have changed my
will, you and him will arrange the transfer of the funds from the Security Company where it is deposited.
The funds is deposited in a trunk box for safe keeping and the contents declared as photographic
and persona valuables as the security firm is not aware of this.

I wish you all the best and may the good Lord bless you abundantly, and
please use the funds well and always extend the good work to others.
Contact my Executor Simon William with this specified Email :
info.client@legalonline.com with your full names contact telephone/fax
number and your full address and tell him that I have WILLED ($5,500,000.00)
to you and i have also notified him that I am WILLING that amount to you for
a specific and good work. Thanks and God bless.

NB: I will appreciate your utmost confidentiality in this matter until
the task is accomplished as I don't want anything that will Jeopardize
my last wish. And Also I will be contacting with you by email as I
don't want my husband relations to know.

Regards,
Karen Grant

Heh, it was funny at first but the last one is just pathetically sad and horrible!

The ones I hate the worst are the ones that are like 'my daughter is sick, if you forward this to 349384 people the Microsoft corp. will give us money'.

Terrible stuff

Love's a lovely lad
His bringing up is beauty
Who loves him not is mad
For I must pay him duty
