    Nigerian bank scam ...

    I can't believe people are still trying this ****.

    P.T. Barnum had it right.

    I got this e-mail today.

    This is to your Attention:
    This message is coming from the senate president of the federal republic of Nigeria, after the meeting held with the new president of the federal republic of Nigeria DR. Jonathan Good luck, regarding all foreign payments, both in Nigeria and outside country. As the senate president, I been† mandated to handle all the foreign payments.
    However, we have got alot of reports about your payment which you have been pursuing for so many years now, but to no avail, we knew that alot of people have used the name of the top officials of the Nigeria government to defraud you, also so many people have claimed to be managers of different banks here in Nigeria to swindle money from you.
    All these we are very much aware of and we are working seriously to put a stop to all this mess, as the senate president, I have set security everywhere regarding payment in Nigeria and I have decided to bring all foreign payments both inheritance payment and contract payment to my desk so that I will take a good look at all this payment problems. I am cognizance of the fact that you have lost a lot of money in the past in pursuance of your payment.
    Note that we have stopped all foreign payments from any banks here in Nigeria, we have decided to carry out payment with one bank which we have scrutinized the activities of the bank and have gaven them the right to effect foreign payment. We kept a close watch to the bank but we know that they will transfer your fund legally to your account. Also we have made a perfect arrangement with our payment centre in Europe for same purpose.
    Have it in mind that the total sum of your fund we saw from the original payment file is 23.8 million dollars, we assure you that you are going to receive this payment, do your self a good thing by responding back to this message, this is a message that will give you a good life also to† start a new beginning, all this ordeal you have gone through will† come to an end, if only you can believe, note that he that laugh last laugh best.
    Finally, do not disclose this payment to anybody, because we are very much aware that you have been dealing with unscrupulous elements for a long time, we do not want them to have any idea of this payment method, to avoid hackers getting information of this payment.
    Do reconfirm your information to me.

    I myself can't believe people still fall for that. Don't the grammatical errors throw out a red flag?

    Dear Friend,

    Complement of the day to you and your love ones

    I hope my email will arrive to you at good time.
    My name is Dr. Abbaas Zahid Al-Basaq from Damascus Syria.
    I am now 64 years old and retired. I was former personal investor & financial consultant advisers to
    a Top Politician here in SYRIA.

    Why I'm contacting you is to know if we can have a personal conversation.
    Whatever truth you may brief me will be highly recommended.
    Tell me more about your country, how good it will be to invest in your country.
    Such as buying of properties, or real estate and some tourist places or any profitable investment venture that will yield good profit.

    I will appreciate whatever result you may brief me.
    Do let me know your idea and knowledge regarding this or any other profitable investment venture you may suggest.
    I have the total of US$22,300,000.00 that I deposited in South east Asia and I am willing to order the transfer of the money to you for investment if youíre interested with my proposal.

    In my next mail I will explain the full details of the project and interest, and then we reach an agreement on what will be your share from the money or investment.

    I shall tell you more about myself when I read from you.
    You may as well tell me little more about yourself when replying.

    Reply to this e-mail:

    Waiting for your reply.
    Thanks and best regards,
    Dr. Abbaas.
    Damascus,Syria: 6:15 AM.

    These things are old, old news. My dad actually got a letter like this in the mail recently. Anyone stupid enough to fall for this deserves to get conned.
