Good news everyone: I am going to be RICH! I got this in my email yesterday; do you think I should do it? Do you really think its risk-free like she says? OMG, there IS such a thing as a free lunch! I can't believe she chose ME to help her in this highly confidential matter, especially since we have never even heard of each other! I am sure I will just have to transfer a few thousand of my own dollars into her account, ya know, to get the ball rolling, and then she certainly wouldn't bail with all my money! I am SOOO lucky and now I am going to be a millionaire!!!
From Mrs Mariam Guei,
I am writing this mail to you from my residence because of how confidential it is,this letter contains some confidential materials and should be delected from your mail box if you are unable to help me out concerning the proposal.I am the wife of late Gen Robert Guei here in Abidjan.
I and my colleagues have an amount of 28 million dollars in the international remittance bank here in Abidjan belonging to my late husband Gen Robert Guei who was shot dead together with my two children last September by the Government soldiers here on an accusation of plotting a failed coup de etat.this money was 58 million dollars but some have been used in the importation of arms by my late General until he met the unexpected death.
I have all the necessary documents involved in the deposition and the withdrawal of the part of the money and the next of kin was his personal security guard who also met death.Now I want you to stand as the next of kin and help us transfer this amount of money out from here.This business is 100% risk free and I will prepare all the documentation and prove the source of the fund before the transfer.
I want you to know that this business involves I and 2 top officials in the bank and must not be taken as a joke,I advice you to think very well before responding because we need a very strong hand in this transaction.
Your percentage and other important details will be discussed once I confirm your kind willingness in helping to the transfer. I await your
Mrs Mariam Guei
Who actually falls for this stuff and thinks they will be getting millions of dollars from some stranger?
