I have a couple hot ones running, but in the meantime I hate to waste these brilliant scam emails. Here's a short one that will get you no response, 100% risk free! Smile

Let me start first by introducing myself to you. I am
Mr.Jerry Jackson, a manager with Eko Bank PLC Lagos,
Nigeria. I came to know about you in my private search
for a reliable person to handle a confidential
transaction on behalf of my colleagues and myself.

The Proposition:

Mr. Wolfgang Khan, a German and a prosperous oil
merchant had a sum of eighteen million five hundred
thousand United State Dollars (U.S. $18.5m) in a
domiciliary account in our bank. From the
information available to us here, his wife, Mrs. Helga
Khan was his next of kin and unfortunately two of them
died in the air crash of 25th July 2000 that involved
Air France, Concord AF4590 in Gonesse, France.

Efforts had been made by the management of my bank
through the German embassy in Lagos to contact any of
the children or relatives of Mr. Wolfgang Khan but to
no avail. The bank is still unrelenting in its bid to
contact any of the relatives to claim this money and
in the event of nobody claiming the money, the bank
will declare the account dormant and will be trading
with it freely till eternity.

In order to avoid this and after these several
unsuccessful attempts to contact any member of Mr.
Khan's family, I decided to track Mr. Khan's last name
and that of those he used as guarantors on the
Internet to locate any member of his family or his
guarantors and since you have the same last name as
one of the guarantors, my colleagues and I decided to
seek your permission to have you stands as a distant
relative to Mr. Wolfgang Khan so that the funds would
be released to you. All the documents and proofs to
enable you to get these funds will be carefully worked

Furthermore, the bank has secured from the court an
order of mandamus to locate any of the deceased
relatives. I guarantee that this will be executed
under legitimate arrangement that will protect you
from any breach of the law.

Please do contact me and let me know about your


Jerry Jackson

Sounds like a great plan. I was relieved to hear that you work as a bank executive. I'm not going to lie to you, most of the propositions I am given are by people who don't make much money. This often puts financial burden on me and frankly, poor people are greedy.

I'll get right to the point. I have retained the services of an attorney by the name of Kobayashi. He's a great asset in my business dealings and I think you'll find him a great help in this particular transaction. He's not just one of "the usual suspects" , but a bona fide international business attorney with a knack for closing deals fast.

My attorney can go through the process of research and proof, starting with the plane crash, verifying identity, etc, then moving toward to the bank records, can verify account information - since we can prove the account owner deceased, this will be public record. Then a quick trip to Germany to establish myself as the rightful heir and we're home free!

Of course, an effective attorney does not come without a price tag. In order to being the process I'll need a small cash deposit from you. Total cost for research and filing with the German government comes to approximately $12,000 US. I will cover the majority of this personally, but as a sign of good faith, I'd like to you wire $2000 US to my attorney's office as soon as possible. This will prove to me that you are serious, as well as trustworthy, and we can start the process of claiming this money.

Please confirm recipt of this email soon. For security purposes, I will need a copy of your international passport as well as a personal photo. Once I have received these, I will forward the information for you to send your deposit via Western Union.

Looking forward to a prosperous business relationship,

Keyser Soze

Never heard back from him. Go figure?

Do not be suprised if you hear back from him! - I did the same a couple of times, and some of them keep writing back to me, sticking to the script
