Hopefully everyone knows that you and I are not on Mr. Gates's charity list and this isn't so much about giving but, if you reply
and give all the information request, it will certainly be about taking. Taking you for all they can get....
Be careful, be cautious and, always be vigilant.

Has been awhile since I got an email from dear old Dr.Hamid Asaad.

Dear Beloved,
I am Dr.Hamid Asaad, Senior Accountant & the Auditor General Manager of BANK OF AFRICA, of the Federal Republic of Benin. I Work with BANK OF African  Cotonou Benin Rep.

It is my wish to solicit your assistance in a business opportunity that will be benefited for you and I. During our investigation and Auditing in my Bank, in my department I came across an abandoned sum of money (Eight Million One Hundred Thousand US Dollars) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer late Mrs. Alida J. pickett, a citizen o f Lebanon who died along with her entire family. I wish to know if we can work together.

I would like you to stand as her ,Next of Kin to a Fixed Deposit of US$8,100,000.00which she made to our Bank. She died and left nobody behind as her Next of Kin. The Funds can be transfer to you either through Bank to Bank wire transfer into any account of your choice.

Please get back to me through either by phone or email if you are interested to know much about this transaction. Reply through my private email:( dr.hamid_asaad@yahoo.co.uk )

Thanks for your understanding.
Dr.Hamid Asaad

I've just received my FINAL notice:

They only need a small amount of information from me:



It was nice of them to let me know this might end up in the Spam Folder

Google also had this in the spam folder where it rightfully belongs.

Stay safe, be Free always keep this type of junk away from you and me. :)

With my information, I'd probably have my ID stolen.
With his information, they'll probably send him a check.... :)

I can't understand how anyone would be taken by this - since when did you give your email when buying a lottery ticket ???

Interesting that some of the information about you they want, includes your email address ???

Any one interested in "winning" may complete this and send it in.
You have my permission. Don't be surprised however if you receive nothing and possible loose a lot.
This is a sure Phishing attempt so don't be fooled. Save your time and your energy and never reply to something like this.

Not to mention supposedly signed by nalco1.onmicrosoft.com, anyone that falls for this cr4p really needs some serious help.
