Hello Drea,

I got your contact through a reliable source in my search for a foreign partner to assist me
in my business, my father was the chairman of sierra leonine Mining Corporation, who was
massacred by president Tijuana kebab force in their struggle to reinstate him back power.I
will be so glad if you can allow me and lead me to the right channel towards your assistance
to my situation now.I will make my proposal well known if I am given the opportunity.
I would like to use this opportunity to introduce myself to you. Well I am Mami Ngom
from sierra leonine the Daughter of Col Kagame Ngom.
My brother and I are presently in Senegal dakar, since the death of our father, and the
misery behind his death. Before the death of my father some years ago he disclosed to me
where he deposited some consignment in a neighboring country in Senegal West Africa. And my
father handed over the document regarding this consignment to me. He keeps this consignment
under a security company concealed in a trunk box as diamond in their vault is $10.5 million
[USA]. But only declared to the company as diamond and due to previous transaction of
depositing diamonds in the past by my late father it was accepted without any check up.
This consignment has been successfully moved to a safe fiduciary in Europe. I am seeking
your assistance because my father has declare the record with the company stating that his
foreign partner shall be the authorized person to make claim on this consignment on my
behalf, because of the position in the government on witch no name was given by my father as
his foreign partner.
To this effect, I request to make the beneficiary of his consignment in your name as foreign
partiner to claim this consignment.
For your assistance, room is open for negotiations. This is 100 present risk free
transaction as my father deposited this valuable as a personal belonging .in this situation
every process to completely move this valuable may not exceed [5] working days, if your
co-operation to asset is sortie shall be very grateful to hear from you, all documents
concerning this are intact with me, I decided to trust you because I am at a crossroad and
have this feeling we could work this out for our mutual benefit. Reach me via my aemail

    Doesn’t matter what the amail address was as does not exist and is anyway not a valid email address so you could not have received the above aemail, except in a dream: so pinch yourself in the arm and you will wake up.
    Mr B, a belated congrats with the new blog! Good stuff!

  2. Mr. Bingley says:

    actually, i received the above email twice today. i changed all the email addresses when i posted it.
    unfortunately i’ve deleted most of the ones i’ve received, as the thought just occurred to me that it might make interesting reading if someone were to collect all these various scam emails going around; i’m sure i’ve been offered several billion dollars in good samaritan fees by now…
    thanks jorgen!

  3. Jorgen says:

    Really? Well, I should have known that you wouldn’t joke about money!

  4. Mr. Bingley says:

    hell, i joke about damn near everything 🙂

    419 Eater has lots of good stuff on these types of scams.

  6. Mr. Bingley says:

    The Watchful Babbler wrote a hilarious reply to one of them one time; i’ll ask him to link me a copy.

    Aw heck, that does it for me. Sign me up.

  8. Mr. Bingley says:

    i’m with you, danger.
    I also found this line particularly compelling:
    who was
    massacred by president Tijuana kebab

    I mean, who hasn’t had such troubles with mexican food before?

  9. Dave J says:

    “Tijuana kebab force” should be a band name.

  10. Mr. Bingley says:

    or a cooking show on “Telemundo”…

  11. Ken Summers says:

    That certainly is one of the better ones I’ve seen. Someday I’ll have to visit Sierra leonine.

  12. The Real JeffS says:

    Heh! Mr. Bingley, you were targeted because of all your posts on booze, Brazilian pools, and hookers in high class resturants. They must figure that you have plenty of excess moolah.

  13. Mr. Bingley says:

    and here i was thinking it was due to my sensitive 90s guy persona.
