My favorite one was the one from the FBI director. However, I didn't know that the FBI spelled everything with the lowercase. I busted out laughing when I got this and read it. I've gotten it three times already and the second and third ones I forwarded onto the FBI itself to their internet crimes division.

They were talking about this guy on the radio yesterday morning. He lost $150,000 in this scam and it went really far, with him traveling to Europe, meeting the guys and everything. Unreal.

Why would some folks think that these things are real? I mean really, they are always looking for the "next of kin" and you're supposedly it? I mean, I know MOST if not all of my family and I don't think that any of these people would be my "relatives." It's a shame that foks get suckered into these basic con games. One say someone is going to do this deal and end up getting shot.

My money is already deposited!!!

Hello My Dear,
After waiting and no response was heard, I deposited and also paid for the delivery fee of your $1.5,000 000.00 Million US Dollars, as consignment box to FEDERAL INLAND SECURITY COMPANY in Lagos-Nigeria because I have travelled to London on a visit you can reach me on +447045765505. I am on a visit to a friend and will not come back till Dec, 2009. I will want you to contact the FEDERAL INLAND SECURITY COMPANY to know when they will be delivering your consignment. I have paid for the delivery charges and also the insurance fee,the only fee you will have to pay them is the monthly demurrage fee which they would pay the security department that are guarding your consignment since the date of deposit. But if you will be very fast in contacting them, you will be charged only one month demurrage fee which will cost only $170 USD. o i urge you to contact them as soon as you receive this email.

CONTACT: Dr. Charles OkoyeMANAGER,FEDERAL INLAND SECURITY COMPANY.E-mail: drcharlsokoye@gmail.com

Try to contact him as soon as possible to avoid increase in demurrage fee. I gave them your delivery address but you have to reconfirm it to them again to avoid any mistakes in the delivery of your fund. Reconfirm below information to the company.
Your Full Name-----------------------
Your Address-------------------------
Home Telephone-----------------------
Office Telephone---------------------

Note: You are to contact the FEDERAL INLAND SECURITY COMPANY MANAGER via this email:-- (drcharlsokoye@gmail.com) Finally indicate this code: GM0081 when contacting them, it will identify that you are the owner of the $1.500.000.00 consignment trunk box deposited in the company. Do let me know as soon as you receive your consignment and take a proper account of the content, and see that it contains $1.500.000.00

Regards,

Mr. Paul A.Rogers.

I LOVE how everyone is using gmail or hotmail too! Totally legit!

How can he be smart enough to either invest enough or earn $150k.... but then fall for a 413 scam?

what really got to me is that simple logic would've prevented people from being defrauded. Corporations, governments, law firms, will not be using free email services to send their official messages. Also, look at the caps being used people.
