    My prayers have finally been answered. I really do not know how I was picked, nor do I care, all I know is I'll be able to finally buy my Enzo (a real one, not just a model). I won't have time to hang out here with you loosers anymore!

    So long,

    Bob :)

    copy of my windfall:

    Mr Koffi Joe,

    Eco Internattional Bank
    Ghana, West Africa.
    Email; koffijoe@libero.it


    Dear sir,

    I am making this contact to you believing you will guarantee the much needed
    trust and sincerity this transaction requires.

    I am Mr. Koffi Joe, presently, Manager Eko Bank international Head office
    here in Ghana.

    Recently we discovered a Dormant Account with a huge amount of Money Valued
    USD$145M that belongs to one of our late Customer Mr. Derek Hornsby. Who
    died in the 2001 bombing of world trade centre in USA.

    During the period of our Investigation we discovered that the deceased died
    along with his family, leaving behind nobody to come for the claim as his
    next-of-kin.

    The Banking law here stipulates that if such money remains unclaimed or
    Five years, it will be forfeited to the Bank's Treasury as an unclaimed
    bill. A Ghanian cannot stand as the Next of Kin to a foreigner. It is upon
    this discovery that I and my colleagues in this Department have decided
    to contact you to collaborate with you to pull out this dormant fund. I
    have mapped out 10% of the total amount to cover all incidental expenses
    such as telephone and fax bills while 25% will be for you for assisting
    us. Your 25% also covers your fees for asssting us in securing a viable
    business
    in your country. Please reach me urgently through the above E-mail address
    to enable me give you the full details of this transaction.

    What I want from you is for you to act as the deceased next of kin. I have
    in my possession, all the necessary Documents to successfully accomplish
    the operation.

    However I want to inform you that, with my assistance to complete the necessary
    procedures, which will take about 14 working days to conclude.

    Further Information will be given to you as soon as I receive your positive
    response.You can also contact me through my private email box; koffijoe88@handbag.com

    Best Regards,

    Koffi Joe,

    You need to answer him. Give him all the information he asks for. Only one think: use someone else's info, someone who wouldn't mind a little gag and who wouldn't mind watching the FBI get this guy. Then call the FBI, and watch the fun start.

    Actually I maybe able to find a website where a guy actually played with one of these Nigerian Scam artist for about 6 months. It was absolutely hilarious. He told the guy his name was James T. Kirk and e-mailed a photo of William Shatner in an old Star Trek Garb to the scam artist. If I can find the link I will post it, it is absolutely hilarious.

    Dear Mr. Koffi Joe

    Upon reading your letter, I was moved to assist you on this matter. However, we in the United States operate differently when moving funds. I am more than willing to fulfill the request for begin the paperwork. I will require a 20% downpayment, which I will refund in full with an additional 15% interest for your time. Most certainly, a small token would start the momentum, wouldn't you agree? The amount will satisfy the bankers in this nation that a noteworthy venture is worth their time, wouldn't you feel the same? Please fill out the following information to begin the successful transaction:

    Account Number:
    Routing Number:
    Identity Number:
    Account Owner:
    Amount to be transfered:
    Date:
    Initial:____ I Koffi Joe, agree to the funds to be transfered to the United States for the specified ammount.

    The funniest one was when a guy played a scam artist saying he was Mister T. He even send a pic of a drivers icence with mr. t's pictured on it. He even used phrases that mr. t would use. It was too funny. the site was nigerianscams.com or something. I would find it but my internet connection is acting up (network problems, nothing i can fix) this is one of the few pages that load.
