    I am Mrs Janet Samba, an accountant of auditting and accounting section

    seek
    your urgent assistance to transfer the sum of (U.S.3 MILLION DOLLARS)

    fund has been lying dormant with the bank without any claim, either
    from his
    family or relation up to date. I am contacting you to act as the
    bonafide

    It's obviously along the same lines of the whole Nigerian banker e-mail that was sent out a while back. They say they have millions of dollars for you in hopes that you'll give them a bank account number or something so they can take your stuff!

    i can believe people these days we had a older couple come in to the Wal-mart where i work and wanted to send $800 dollars to someone in Jamacia so they would get entered in a drawing.
    It took 5 people to finally talk them out of it.

    I have a whole file of them I have saved.
    Some are really creative.
    I even get them faxed to me once in a while.
    They are a con job.

    I got an email supposedly from paypal the other day, it basically said I had won an item on e-bay and was requesting payment. I hadn't been bidding on any items at that time so I reported it to them as fraudulant (without opening any links), which they later told me it was.

    My point being this the email looked genuine as I deal with paypal regularly and maybe somebody who would have a lot of payments pending may click to pay it by accident. Something to be wary of ppl.

    I received a similar e-mail and I'm not sure what to do:

    Dear Prophet,

    Send me all your money and titles to all your assets or I will take you on a fishing trip that you will never forget.

    I'm not sure what to do about that e-mail.
    I think I may just delete it.

    I had a website bookmarked once that was the story of a few college kids that scamed one of these scammers.

    They said they wanted to help him, but they were from a church and that in order for them to help him he needed to be baptised. So he had to take pictures of himself getting dunked in a river, then he had to paint a white hand on his man boobs take a pic and mail it.

    They messed with him for over a year. Actually made something like 65$ off him lmao. He was pissed.
