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

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

From Miss Marram Mohammed. Abidjan. Cote D'Ivoire, Email( marram_mohammed@yahoo.cn ) Hello Dear, With profound respect and humble submission, I beg to state the following few lines for your kind consideration, I hope you will spare some of your valuable minutes to read the following appeal with sympathetic mind. I must confess that it is with great hopes, joy and enthusiasm that I write you this mail which I know and believe by the faith that it must surely find you in good condition of health. My name is Miss Marram Mohammed, I am the only Daughter of my late parents Mr.and Mrs Dandy Mohammed. My father was a highly reputable business magnet who operated in the capital of Ivory coast during his days. It is sad to say that he passed away mysteriously in France during one of his business trips abroad on the 20th May 2007. Though his sudden death was linked or rather suspected to have been masterminded by an uncle of mine who travelled with him at that time. But GOD knows the truth! My mother died when I was just 6yrs old, and since then my father took me so special. Before the death of my father on May 2007, he called me and informed me that he has the sum of Ten Million, Five Hundred thousand United State Dollars.(USD$10,500,000.00) he deposited in a private Bank here in Abidjan Cote D'Ivoire.. He told me that he deposited the money in my name, and also gave me all the necessary legal documents regarding to this deposit with the Bank I am just 20 years old and a university undergraduate and really don't know what to do. Now I want an honest and GOD fearing partner overseas who I can transfer this money with his assistance and after the transaction I will come and reside permanently in your country till such a time that it will be convinient for me to return back home if I so desire. This is because I have suffered a lot of set backs as a result of incessant political crisis here in Ivory coast. The death of my father actually brought sorrow to my life. I also want to invest the fund under your care because I am ignorant of business world. I am in a sincere desire of your humble assistance in this regards. Your suggestions and ideas will be highly regarded. Now permit me to ask these few questions: 1. Can you honestly help me from your heart? 2. Can I completely trust you? 3. What percentage of the total amount in question will be good for you after the fund has being transfeered to your account and i come over to meet you ? Please, consider this and get back to me as soon as possible. Immedaitely I confirm your willingness, I will send to you my Picture and also inform you more details involved in this matter. Anticipating hearing from you soon. please respond to me on private Email( marram_mohammed@yahoo.cn ) Kind Regards, Miss Marram Mohammed,

Did anyone read it all the way through? I know I didn´t!

Just when I thought it was safe again after nearly a week of being spam free, this came in today:

From: gina33love (3 hr. ago)
Hello My Dearest, My name is Miss Gina G. William, As I whisper my prayer lastnight and went into search for a nice friend in internet and I came across your contact,My mind and my heart told me to contact you for friendship, A friend who truly understand his or her friend and share their feelings together. please kindly accept my request, I believe that distance can never be a barrier but let's love connect us because love is a bridge that connected far distance to beclose to each other. "Friendship' is the greatest blessing on earth and a friend is a gift our heart treasures. A friend can truly understand his or her friend and share their feelings" The road may be very long and rough... but it becomes shorter and easier to tread upon, when we have the love and support of good friends.And that is reasons one needs good friend who can advice and care for. A friend who can hold something for a friend for the trust in them. I will send my pictures to you immediately i receive your reply on my private email (gina33love@yahoo.com). yours In Love, Miss.Gina.

She obviously doesn´t know what a nasty obnoxious person I can be..................

 Any spam you get, forward it to a mod so we can get rid of those jerks. :)
#35 | 1696 days ago

Below is my latest. Great job getting the ones I have sent before. This one wouldn't let me forward or send or do anything with it, so I just had to copy it. I figured pasting it below would work, since that has happened in a few of the above comments. If not, then at least it would be here for me to copy & paste later to a moderator, because I removed it from "My Profile".
------------------------------
