    I'm Rich, Folks!

    Just got this email:

    r Friend,

    I am Barrister Bernard Ida Esq, solicitor and personal lawyer to late Mrs. Monica, a client of mine, who has a servicing firm affiliated with the Electric Authority here in Abidjan Cote D’Ivoire .

    My client was awarded a contract worth US$18,000,000.00). Immediately this contract was signed, an initial amount of (US$10.000, 000.00) was paid to her as mobilization fee to kick off the contract. She duly completed this contract pending when her remaining balance of (US$8,000,000.00) will be paid to her. On the 18th April 2005, my client and her two kids were involved in a ghastly boat capsize at Gozac, Unfortunately all the occupants in the boat lost their lives.

    Not too long after her untimely death, her outstanding balance of US$8,000,000.00 was approved and deposited in a Bank here in Cote d'Ivoire ; Right now the funds are still floating unclaimed in the suspense account of the offshore correspondence payment centre here.

    I have reasoned very professionally and I feel it will be legally proper to present you as the next of kin of my deceased client so that you can be paid the remaining balance of his contract funds left in the Bank. Note that I am offering you this opportunity by contacting you to assist in repatriating the fund and property left behind by my client before they get confiscated or unserviceable by the Bank where this huge deposit were lodged. The National Electric Authority issued me a notice as the Attorney to the deceased to provide the Next of Kin or have the Account
    confiscated in a shot period of time since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over a year that I have been searching.

    I seek your concept to present you as the Next of Kin or family member to Late Client since you are at an advantage so that the proceeds of this remaining balance of her contract funds valued at (US$8,000,000.00) will be paid to you. We shall both share the funds 60% for me while 40% for you

    All I require is your honest co-operation to enable us see this project through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of law after the transfer is done, and then you and l can share the fund.

    If there is anything you do not understand please try to reach

    Best personal regards,
    Barrister Bernard Ida,

    All I have to do is give honest cooperation and lie about who my relatives are.

    I wonder if I have to know any Arabic languages?

    Who wants to split the money with me?

    WM,

    I can see that you need some assistance with this matter and would be pleased to help in any way I can.

    I think you should be prepared to send him oh, maybe $20,000 or so expense money to see this through.

    If you would like me to take a run to Nigeria or Somalia to check this guy out I could be ready to go next Monday. The only problem is my funds are tied up for the next three months so if you would just provide an advance to cover immediate expenses I will take care of things for you.

    We can discuss the sharing on my return.

    That's great news! I've somehow won the British lottery twice now without ever having entered! But now that I think about it, I've sent them a few thousand bucks for processing and my social security number and all I've gotten in return so far is nasty calls from my credit card company.

    It sounds like a legitimate deal to me.

    I think you guys are just jaded.

    WM, congrats on your windfall. You sound like a very shrewd investor. Perhaps you would be willing to invest some $$$$ for me?

    maximum daily limit is Fift Thousand United States
    Dollars($5,000.00) valued sum at Five Million United States
    Dollars
    How much is Fift Thousand dollars? Oh wait it is $5,000.00. Being from America and my math not being very good I for some reason thought that was five thousand. But here is where my english must get bad you can take out Fift Thousand ($5,000.00) maxium daily and its value sum is $5,000,000.00? My 401K is at $3,000 does that mean that here my 401K is actually a valued sum at $3,000,000.00?

    I was just out in my front yard and was asked for gas money. The woman ran out of gas, just up the street.

    This it the second time this week, and the third time this month that someone has run out of gas on my street.

    Must be a black hole for gasoline somewhere.
