Just became a rich man! I just recieved a letter from portugal saying that one of my relatives has died and left $32Million USD in a bank account but didn't have a will. So a nice lawyer said he'll give me 40% after I contact him via his hotmail email address. Time to live it up! Anyone want a mil?
Nah - I got so many different sources of dosh now from Nigeria, the latest came through hubpages !
Just be sure and send him all your personal details including social security number and bank pins. That way you can be certain of getting the dough.
Yup like they say, there is a sucka born every day...most of those emails and letters come from Africa? hmmmmmmnow Portugal...they don't stop do they.
I got the same e-mail just the other day, also from a chap with a hotmail address.
Could we be long lost relatives?!
What ? we must be related I got the same email! Hi Bro
They left me with the same amount. 32 million dollars. Wow! I will buy myself a yacht today.
Perhaps we could pool our resources and buy somewhere decent to live because this very weekend I was informed that I have won the European Lottery and to claim my prize and avoid taxes I should send them my details and a fee...
How could I be so lucky, I mean when I put that with my share from Oodongo's Uncle who has managed to amass a small fortune in a West African country as long as I let him put the money in my account and give him 60% back.
I promised him I do it just as soon as I got back from the South Sea Island cruise a person on the phone told me I had won.
Well You won't have to ever again worry about getting to 90 mate
Wow.. I'll send you a 50% share certificate for an Iceberg we're landing next month... You're a good bloke.. 5mil we give you a great return if you're any good at treading and bottling water
I'm thinking of playing along with it for a bit, see what happens, or for those Australians give the details to ACA and let them contact them, they'd love some little stupid story like that
I can't believe the uncanny coincidence. I too have learned I am about to become a millionaire in exactly the same way.Told my boss exactly what I thought of him the other day.The fat idiot thinks I need his lousy money.So I told him what he could do with his stinking job.Borrowed the money at 150% interest to pay for the handling charge but when you are a millionaire thats peanuts.
The amazing thing is as soon as I sent off the handling charge my inbox has been flooded with even more people from all corners of the earth trying to send me bigger and bigger cheques. At this rate I am gonna become a Billionaire.
You know, we laugh about this, but you know just by how many of these we see, that there must be hundreds (thousands?) of people falling for it! That's just crazy to me.
KC you have got me worried. Are you telling me I won't become a millionaire?
I have invested time and money and now you shatter my dreams.
You cruel, cruel man.
Damn. Nothing is at it seems.So I won't become a millionaire.can I claim back the administration charges?
Wow, my luck has turned a guy from Africa has just emailed me to rescue my finances for no charge.
I was just awarded $250,000 for being the victim of a scam
Interestingly enough, I never have been a victim...
Sad part about it is some people fall for it, like the elderly...
With all of those fabulously rich people dying in Africa, you'd think the whole continent would be doing so much better.
My grandfather is 80 and actually got something of this type in the mail. He went into his bank and asked them to send the required payment. They gently explained that it was a SCAM!
If anyone is interested in getting even with these scammers, I came across a rather amusing site awhile back that I just dug up again:
Basically people who spend time wasting scammers time. They refer to themselves as "scambaiters."

It's been so long since I had a copied hub that I've forgotten!The Learning Center entry says you can send to the website or to the host. The whois entry shows an address for abuse@GoDaddy and registrant and admin emails for the website. I'm guessing that sending it to GoDaddy would be the...
