Here's one I received today; these people have brass balls.

From: tonywilliams_8 (2 days ago)
Larry Associates & Chambers. Solicitors & Advocates, Accra - Ghana. Compliment. Dear Friend, I crave your indulgence for the unsolicited nature of this letter, but it was borne out of desperation and current development. Please bear with me. My name is Barrister Wilson Larry, a legal practitioner and the personal Attorney to late Mr. Michael Harris who died in Air France plane which disappeared over the Atlantic Ocean were Brazilians and French nationals, airline officials said along With his wife Mrs. Anne on the 31 May 2009 Air France plane among the 216 passengers on board flight 447(May their soul rest in peace).I know that my client had no living kin but I went ahead and made several inquiries to their embassy to locate any of my clients extended relatives but this has proved unsuccessful. You can confirm this from the website below which was published by BBC. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/8077858.stm I only did so to be double sure of this fact. I have contacted you to assist in repatriating the money and property left behind by my client before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable by the bank where these huge deposits were lodged, particularly in the Stanbic Bank Ghana where the deceased had an account valued at about $25 Million Dollars, The bank has issued me a notice that in the event that no next of kin comes up for the claim, the account will be confiscated if not claimed and we have just about few months. Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over years now I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased so that the proceeds of this account valued at US$25 Million Dollars can be paid into your nominated bank account and then you and me can share the money in the mode. 60% shall be for me and 35% for you and 5% shall be map out for expanse that are being made within the transfer. I have all necessary legal documents that can be used to back up any claim we may make. All I require is your honest co-operation to enable us see this deal through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. Please your telephone and fax number urgently needed for further discussion. I look forward to your urgent response. Best regards, Barrister Wilson Larry Esq. E-mail:barr.wilsonlarry12@hotmail.com

Subject Dear Friend
Body Dear Friend,

Greetings to you. Please forgive my indignation if this message comes to you as a surprice. I am Adakanou Blaise the Branch Manager of the Union Togolaise de Banque. I write to solicit your assistance in a funds transfer deal involving US$3.5M.This fund has been stashed out of the excess profit made last year by my Kara branch office the Union Togolaise de Banque which I am the manager.

I have already submitted an approved end of the year report for the year 2009 to my head office in Lome-Togo and they will never know of this excess. I have since then, placed this amount on a Non-Investment Account without a beneficiary. Upon your response, I will configure your name on our database as holder of the Non-Investment Account. I will then guide you on how to apply to my head office for the Account Closure/bank-to-bank remittance of the funds to your designated bank account.

If you concur with this proposal, I intend for you to retain 40% of the funds while 60% shall be for me. Kindly forward your response and contact details to me immediately.

Regards,

Adakanou Blaise

It's crazy, and we even have that capcha (code word thing) when people sign up to deter them but to no avail. We're still working on more solutions though, so hopefully soon :)

FROM JERRY AND CYNTHIA MOHAMMED. Avenu 12 Reu 47 ABIDJAN DANANI REFUGEE CAMP, ABIDJAN REPUBLIC OF COTE-D'IVOIRE Dearest one, My name is Jerry Mohammed and my sister's name is Cynthia we are the children of Late General Musa Mohammed the former Director of military inteligence and special acting General Manager of the Sieria Leone Diamond mining coperatio( SLDMC ). I am contacting you to seek your good assistance to transfer and invest USD 16 million belonging to my late father which is deposited in a bank in Abidjan. This money is revenues from solid minirals and dimonds sale which were under my fathers possession before the civil war broke out. Following the break out of the war, almost all government offices coperations and parastatals were attacked and vandalized. The SLDMC was loothed and burnt down to ashes,and diamonds worth millions of dollars was stolen by the rebel military forces who attacked my fathers office. Many top government officials and senior army officers were assasinated and my father was a key target because of his very sensitive military possition and appointment in the SLDMC.Regreatably my father was captured and murdered along with half brother in cool blood during a mid-night rebel shoot-out when our official residence in freetown was armbushed by Fordey Sanko the notorious rebel leader. My mother sustainded very sever bullet injuries which resulted to her untimely and painful death in a private hospital here in Ivory Coast. Now we are alone in a totally strange country without parents, relatives or any body to care for us at our tender ages. Before our mother died, she told us that our father deposited some money which he made from diamond sales and contracts at this bank here in Ivory Coast and that we should pray and find a trust worthyforeign business partner who would help us to transfer and invest this money in profitable business venture overseas. She told us to do this quickly so that we can leave Ivory Coast. She gave us the bank document to prove the deposit and then told us that my father used my name as the only son to deposit the money in the bank. She told us that this is the reason why we came to Ivory Coast. My mother died after wards. May her spirit rest in perfect peace. I have gone to the bank to make inquires about this money and I spoke with the Manager of International remittance who assured me that everything is intact and promised to help me to transfer this money to my foreign partners bank account as soon as I provide my partners foreign bank account for them. However, the manager is very concerned because of my age. I am 22 years and as such advised that I should look for a matured person hat will represent me at the bank. If you are willing to assist us, please let us know immediately so that you will arrange the transfer of the money to your account with the bank.Please note that I can only offer you 25% of the total money as compensation for your noble assistance in accodiance with my mothers advise. I am interested in any profitable commercial venture which you consider very good in your country and you would also get a school for me, my little sister so that we can finish our college education. Please there is urgent need for the money to be transferred to your account because of the political crises they are having in Cote d'Ivoire now. I am hoping to hear your urgent response so that I can not look for another foreign partner. Now permit me to ask these few questions: - 1. Can I completely trust you? 2. Promise not to sit on our money when reaches your country? Please write to me through my private box(ammed00@yahoo.com)for conversation and details about us. Thank you and may Allah bless you and your dear family. Yours sincerely Jerry/Cynthia Mohammed.
