Today I was again blessed with an opportunity for effortless and almost instant riches, and had to share with my friends. Here is the genuine and certainly real e-mail :
I am Simon Peter A Sudanese by Nationality. I am the Only son of my Late Father Dr Peter Abraham Otu, The owner of Peterson and Son Gold and Diamond Company in Sudan. Sir after the death of my father, My mother advised me to travel to Ghana with some document showing that my late Father Deposited Two Trunk Boxes Containing $17.5Million US Dollars with a BANK in Ghana west Africa. I am currently in the refugee camp because I do not have a foreign Beneficiary to stand for me to receive the funds from the BANK.
Please, I want you to tell me the area of investment you think is profitable to invest in your country and the amount that will be your percentage for you to assist me. It is worthy of note that this transaction is free from any risk or troubles as my lawyer will perfect all processes for a successful movement of the FUNDS to you. This transaction has been mapped out to be hitch free. The Only problem I have now is the person who will stand as my foreign Beneficiary in receiving the FUNDS.
Please I cannot present myself as the beneficiary who will receive the FUNDS because of my position here and I am under travel watch. This are very legal procedures and does not go contrary to any International Law, as you receive the funds (consignment), you will start making arrangements for me to meet with you. But I do urge you to keep this as confidential as possible. Also I am willing to give you 30% of the total amount after the conclusion of this transaction as I also hope for your understanding and Trust.
Please, let it be known to you that I am a little bit worried, but I have the understanding that friends are discovered and friends are made. I have come to the understanding that I cannot achieve success without trusting some one in this transaction. This brings us to the need for both of us to trust and believe in one another. Let trust and honesty be our watchword throughout this transaction.
Thanks From Simon Peter Email:email@example.com God Bless you
Now, because I am such a generous person, I have decided to share this rare blessing with friends. All I am asking from each of my friends is a token of 1000 euros wired to me. I will let you know what your share of the final transacion is at my earliest convenience.

Sudan, Nigeria... it never ceases to amaze me the worldwide outreach of Radio Free Dogspit. Again, because of my extreme sense of generosity and kindness, I offer shares in this venture, and for those who have invested in my Sudanese fortunes, I offer a share at half-price (only 500 euros). The world is soon to be ours my friends.
I had to share the latest. A new twist on the same "opportunity" that adds its own twist (Note the .kz domain ... now even Kazakhstan wants to make for the great riches of me !) :
I am one of the hardworking Americans that made their money in a cool way. My name is Natasha Raymond from Seattle, WA, though I'm thinking of relocating since I am now rich. I'm one of those who took part in the Nigerian contract many years ago and never got paid, I sent out over $42,000 in payments while in the US, trying to get my payment but it did not come through.
Before I decided to travel down to Africa with all my contract documents, and I was directed to meet an attorney in person of Mr. Napoleon Udeh, who happens to be a member of the CONTRACT AWARD COMMITTEE, he explained everything to me, and made me understand that most people contacting us through emails with promises are all fakes.
He accompanied me to the paying bank for the claim of my contract payment after assisting me in getting all the paper works needed. My Contract payment worth $7,500,000.00 was directly deposited into my bank account in Seattle WA. Moreover, Mr. Napoleon Udeh showed me the full information of those that are yet to receive their payments and I saw your email address as one of the beneficiaries, for this reason, I will ask you to stop dealing with those people sending you false emails, they are not with your fund, they are only making money out of you. I will advise you to contact Mr. Napoleon Udeh today for your own good.
You have to contact him directly on this information below.
CONTRACT AWARD COMMITTEE
Name: Mr. Napoleon Udeh Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Phone: +234-809-073-2707
The only money I paid him after we met was just $270 for the paper works, take note of that.
I will advise you to contact Mr. Napoleon Udeh so he can help you to recover your overdue payment the same way he assisted me. Instead of dealing with those liars that will be turning you around asking for different kind of money to complete your transaction.
Guys, you are NOT going to believe it... but another package of million of dollars is on the way to me (and of course, as my investors, to you !) :
GOOD MORNING I AM DIPLOMAT MRS.ROSEMARY JACK.

SO IT IS THIS MORNING THAT THEY RELEASED ME WITH YOUR FUNDS. YOU ADVICE TO RECONFIRM TO ME YOUR DETAILS YOU KNOW I LOST THEM DURING WHEN I WAS DRAGING YOUR PACKAGE WITH SOME IMMIGRATION OFFICER HERE.

Now Barclays Bank has stepped in to assure the completion of these transactions, though I have gone from dollars to J in terms of currency !

Cecilia Ferguson,quite a posh name,suggesting a woman of about 60,well educated. Hmm. Well her English has gone to pot,the poor dear! And her bank,one of Britain's biggest, has no £ sign on its computer keyboards and has to use J instead. I suspect that this letter may be not all it appears to be,you know..
