seems somone found my avast mail and now want to give me a s**** load of money   ;D


==================================================================
Attention:

A customer of ours who died nine years ago in Tsunami tragedy in Indonesia leaving behind an estate/capital (US$20M) in a Bank here
where I work,till date nobody has come forward or put application for the claim.

During the Bank private search for the late gentle man relatives your name and email contact was among the findings that matches the same
surname as the deceased who died intestate with no Will or next of kin. To maintain the level of security required I have intentionally
left out the final details.

Banking regulation/legislation demand that I notify the fiscal authorities after a statutory time period when dormant accounts of
this type are called in by the monetary regulatory bodies if nobody applies to claim the funds. I urge you to come forward since I can
provide you with the details needed for you to claim the estate/capital so that I can be gratify by you ,in this way
$12,000,000.00 for you and $8,000,000.00 for me. I will do all the crucial part in the Bank to have the claim released to you promptly.

Please endeavor to observe utmost discretion in all matters concerning this issue to affirm your willingness and cooperation please do so by
replying me with your Telephone Number and Your Contact Information.

I do expect your prompt response.

Thank you,

David Ego Donald

========================================================

Dear Owner,

I am Robert Williams, Inspection Unit Manager United Nations Inspection Agency in Hartsfield Jackson International Airport Atlanta, Georgia. During our investigation, I discovered An abandoned shipment through a Diplomat from United Kingdom which was transferred from JF Kennedy Airport to our facility here in Atlanta, and when scanned it revealed an undisclosed sum of money in 2 Metal Trunk Boxes weighing approximately 65lbs each.

The consignment was abandoned because the Content was not properly declared by the consignee as money rather it was declared as personal effect/classified document to either avoid diversion by the Shipping Agent or confiscation by the relevant authorities. The diplomat's inability to pay for Non Inspection fees among other things are the reason why the consignment is delayed and abandoned.

By my assessment, each of the boxes contains about $4M or more.They are still left in the airport storage facility till today. The Consignments like I said are two metal trunk boxes weighing about 65lbs each (Internal dimension: W61 x H156 x D73 effective capacity: 680 L) Approximately. The details of the consignment including your name and email on the official document from United Nations' office in London where the shipment was tagged as personal effects/classified document is still available with us. As it stands now, you have to reconfirm your full name, Phone Number, full address so I can cross-check and see if it corresponds with the one on the official documents.

Like I did say again, the shipper abandoned it and ran away most importantly because he gave a false declaration, he could not pay for the yellow tag, he could not secure a valid non inspection document(s), etc. I am ready to assist you in any way I can for you to get back this packages.

Sincerely,
Robert Williams

Yes, and why is it that the person addressing you does not keep the business directed to the person most directly affected?  The diplomat stands to lose the most, right?

Got this in my Outlook mail a short while ago.  Didn't have to click on a link to read it. Didn't even show who sent it.  I deleted the email but now I'm afraid someone might have hacked my computer.

This was on the 9:00 o'clock news the other night and this works. THIS TOOK TWO PAGES OF THE TUESDAY USA TODAY - IT IS FOR REALPLEEEEEEASE READ it was on the news!This thing is for real. Rest assured AOL and Intel will follow through with their promises for fear of facing a multimillion-dollar class action suit similar to the one filed by PepsiCo against General Electric not too long ago.Dear Friends; Please do not take this for a junk letter. Bill Gates sharing his fortune. If you ignore this, You will repent later. Microsoft and AOL are now the largest Internet companies and in an effort to make sure that Internet Explorer remains the most widely used program, Microsoft and AOL are running an e-mail beta test.When you forward this e-mail to friends, Microsoft can and will track it (If you are a Microsoft Windows user)? For a two weeks time period.For every person that you forward this e-mail to, Microsoft will pay you $245.00 For every person that you sent it to that forwards it on, Microsoft will pay you $243.00 and ! for every third person that receives it, You will be paid $241.00. Within two weeks, Microsoft will contact you for your address and then send you a check.RegardsCharles S Bailey General Manager Field Operations 1-800-842-2332 Ext. 1085 or 904-1085 or RNX 292-1085I thought this was a scam myself, But two weeks after receiving this e-mail and forwarding it on. Microsoft contacted me for my address and within days, I receive a check for $24, 800.00. You need to respond before the beta testing is over. If anyone can afford this, Bill gates is the man.It's all marketing expense to him. Please forward this to as many people as possible.

I would be a trillionair if all the (spam) mails I've received about getting a heritage and such where true.

Sure, I will have to pay something before I get it.
Kinda strange that when I say I will pay them double after I received the money they are never responding  ;D ;D ;D
