    Default Scammer e-mails - who the hell writes these?!!!

    I almost posted this in Comedy & Humour as it was so bad! Spotted this in my Junk Folder as I scanned through it before emptying it.....

    FROM HOSPITAL

    Hello,
    This is Miss Lukas willson from Trinidad &Tobago.I am writing from the hospital in Cote D'Ivoire, therefore this mail is very urgent as you can see that I am dying in the hospital. (Err no, I can't actually as it's just an e-mail). I was told by the doctor that I was poisoned and has got my liver damaged and can only live for some months.

    I inherited some money ($2.5 Million) from my late father and I cannot think of anybody trying to kill me apart from my step mother in order to inherit the money, she is an Ivorien by nationality.

    I want you to contact my servant with this informations below:
    Mater Augustin Maranatha.
    Address: Rue De La Princess L/G 152 Cocody
    Abidjan, Cote D'Ivoire.
    Tel 225-67507672
    Email maranathaaugustin@gmail.com He will give you the documents of the money and will direct you to a well known lawyer that I have appointed to him, the lawyer will assist you to change the documents of the money to your name to enable the bank transfer the money to you.

    This is the favour I need when you have gotten the money :-

    (1) Give 10% of the money to my servant, Mr Augustin as he has been there for me throught my illness and I have promised to support him in life. I want you to take him along with you to your country and esterblish him as your son.


    (2) Give 10% of the money to Charity Organisations and Churches on my name so that my soul may rest in peace.
    Note;This should be a code between you and Mr Augustin in this transactioin "Hospital" any mail from him, the barrister he will direct you to, without this code "Hospital" is not from the barrister, Augustin, the bank or myself as I don't know what will happen to me in the next few hours.
    (3) the lawyer's name is Mc Lambert Adams. And Let Augustin send you his National ID as he has no passport to be sure of whom you are dealing with. Augustin is so little therefore guide him.

    And if I don't hear from you, I will look for another person or an organisation.

    May God bless you and use you to accomplish my wish.
    Pray for me always.
    Lukas Nanda Willson.

    Sounds plausible to me... I'll give them a ring in the morning and get my spare room ready

    Actually, on a more serious note, these spam and spit correspondance make the spammers millions of pounds. They target vulnerable, unwell and elderly people.

    Even a UK Judge got caught out by this type of spam. To the millions of us who see it for what it is, there is 0.01% that follow through. Thats enough thank you.

    Ker Ching...

    Ridiculous. Many other daft ones going around.
    Always say, anyone who's gullible enough to send these beggars some money through internet deserves to lose it
    No sympathy should've researched internet scams.

    Anywone silly enough to fall for these things deserves what they get. On the other side, there are the people who turn the tables and follow through with the scammer...

    Worth reading...

    Right away you know it's nonsense but to the people who may be swayed there are 2 VERY concerns here:

    1. The grammar is appalling
    2. The spelling is appalling

    Then there is the funny part which made me :

    'I want you to take him along with you to your country and esterblish him as your son. '
