who in the heck

do you ever get these things in the email? i wonder what theyd do if i actually called them?


Dear Good Friend,

I have been waiting for you since to come down here and pick your Bank
Draft of ($980,000.00) Which my boss asked me to mail to you for your
compensation as soon as you requeste for it, but I did not hear from
you since that time. Then I went and deposited the Draft with
Courier/Security Company here in Nigeria to avoid loosing the
funds, And the Name of the Company is FEDEX COURIER COMPANY. I will be
out of the country for a 6 Months Course and I will not come back till
later in the year. Contact the Courier Company with the following

informations:
Your Full Name.....
Your delivery address...
Reachable phone number...
Copy of your identity.......

Ask them to deliver your package to your address. I have paid for the
delivering charges and insurance fee.The only money you have to send
to them is their security keeping fee which is $860.00 Us Dollars to
received your package.

Below is their email address: (fedexdelivery00009@yahoo.de)
Contact person name is ( Mr Dan GoodMan)
their contact phone number is (+2347030765067)

Try to contact them as soon as possible to avoid increasing the
security keeping fee and also give them your contact delivering
address to avoid any mistake on the delivering. Let me know
immediately you receive your Draft.

I remain your friend.

Mr Shawn Mark




what a bunch of Aholes

Send a message via Yahoo to bigcountrysg
This has been going on for years. It is a great way to have your id stolen.

I was selling a 4 wheeler once on the net. I received an email from someone in England wishing to buy it. I had about 2 days worth of email with this guy. Asking him why he just doesn't buy one over there. Needless to say when he was offering 3 times the amount I was asking plus offering to prepay shipping. I already knew this was a scam.

How ever I contacted the FBI and they took all the info I had. The FBI told me I was smart not taking the deal. I then told them where I worked and they understood my reason for emailing this guy for about 2 days fishing for more info about this potential buyer.

The FBI told me thanks for my time but due to the ability of using numerous ip addresses. They can rarely catch these people. Even though some of them are based in the USA.

Yep me too, or I'll put something on craigslist for sale and I'll get an email saying is your "item" still for sale, I want to buy. I'll reply and ask "why don't you tell me what my item is?" And they never reply
