Here is part of a scam e-mail delivered to my junk folder (I glance thru it every so often for kicks).
I highlighted the parts I found especially goofy:
We found your name in our list and that is why we are contacting you,
and we are happy to announce to you that every necessary legal
arrangement regarding to your compensation has been signed and sealed.
This is to inform you that a woman of 5.9 inches tall, with Log hair
and white in colour from the united states of America came to our office
today claiming to be from you, stating that you are dead but before your
abrupt death you made him your representative and authorized him as
your legal beneficiary to claim your atm card/fund valued us$5.5m only
from this reputable commission.
Now here comes the big question, did you sign any dead of assignment in
favor of this woman, thereby making she the current beneficiary with his
following contact details: please let us know also if you are aware that
we are almost ready to transfer part payment of $5.5m usd of your
outstanding funds to her nominated bank
I want to meet this short transvestite with wooden hair
to find out how she got my dead of assignment!
