In the past several months I have received numerous requests for my help in getting money out of bank accounts in Africa (usually). Many of them explain that all I have to do is pretend to be the next of kin and they will deposit millions of dollars in my bank account and will then be able to keep from15% to 40% of that money. The amount of money is always in the millions of dollars. The highest amount has been $28,000,000. I figure that if I had responded to all the requests I've received so far, and got all the money they promissed, I'd have about $100,000,000 by now!
Has anyone else received such requests?
