Please have $3 million US dollars

I can’t believe the ammount of spam i get in my mailbox just the other day though one particular email caught my eye. a mr Chen Minyong of the Singapore United Overseas bank wants to give someone over $3 million dollars and he has chosen me!!
there must be a catch i thought as there is never such thing as a free lunch. well in this instance the catch is that he wants to put $15 million into my bank account first. hmmm well i guess that would be ok.

Good Day,

This mail might come to you as a surprise and the temptation to ignore it
as serious could come into your mind but please consider it a divine wish
and accept it with a deep sense of humility.

My name is Mr.Chen Minyong, an external auditor for the United Overseas
Bank,Singapore,working as part of a bigger team that covers the entire
Asian region.

An investor died without naming a next of kin to his fund in my bank.The
amount is $15.7M and banking regulation/legislation in Singapore demand
that i notify the fiscal authorities after three years.The above set of
facts underscores my reason to seek your permission to have you stand as
the next of kin to the deceased investor.This funds will be approve and
release in your favour as the next of kin if only you will adhere to my
instruction and cooperate with me in one accord.

I have all the legal and Banking details of my deceased client that will
facilitate our putting you forward as the claimant/beneficiary of the
funds and ultimately transfer of the $15.7M plus interest to any
bank account nominated by you.I am prepared to compensate you with a 20%
share of the total funds for your efforts.The final details will be given
upon receipt an affirmation of your desire to participate.

Please contact me through my email address as time is of the essence in
this business.Also endeavor to forward the under listed details below to
my email address.

I wait in anticipation of your fullest co-operation.

Date Of Birth
Telephone Number
Fax Number

Thank you,

Mr. Chen Minyong

honest and reliable is me

he must have heard that i am an honest and reliable individual who will definitely give him back the $12 million or so and only keep $3 million to myself. yes that must be why he has contacted me.

the real catch

i’m guessing that at a later stage he will either ask for money or more banking details so that “he may make his transfer”. the money you send him will never be seen again or he will use your details maliciously. i’m sure these types of scams must have been around for ages. does anybody ever fall for these emails? i thought they evolved into complicated phishing sites/emails. this email seems like the scammers have gone back to the basic free money scam. these scams only exist due to greed as too many want to make quick money and end up becoming victims of scams.

Junk mail tips

I had this really funny email today about junk mail through the post and how we can all do our bit to eliminate it and help the Royal Mail out too. If only we could do something similar with junk emails 😛

When you get those “pre-approved” letters in the mail for everything from credit cards to 2nd mortgages and similar type junk,do
not throw away the return envelope.

Most of these come with postage-prepaid return envelopes, right?

It costs them more than the regular postage “IF” and when they are returned. It costs them nothing if you throw them away!
In that case, why not get rid of some of your other junk mail and put it in these cool little, postage-prepaid return envelopes.

Send an advert for your local chimney sweeper to American Express … they might need one!
Send a pizza coupon to HSBC … in case their canteen packs up. You get the idea.
If you didn’t get anything else that day, then just send them back their blank application form … after all, it is their form!

If you want to remain anonymous, just make sure your name isn’t on anything you return.

You can even send the envelope back empty if you want to just to keep them guessing! It still costs them, and it is their envelope after all … you are just returning it!!!!

The banks and credit card companies are currently getting a lot of their own junk back in the post, but folks ….. we need to OVERWHELM them, in order to stop them.

Let’s let them know what it’s like to get lots of junk mail, and best of all they’re paying for it … Twice!

Let’s help keep Royal Mail busy. Since the Royal Mail are saying that e-mail is cutting into their business profits, let’s help them so they will not need to increase postage costs again. You get the idea!

If enough people follow these tips, it will work —- maybe you’ll get very little junk mail anymore.
