    (you realize that most of the war is spent waiting around for something to happen, right?)

    I always get a whole bunch of stuff with random kanji (err... japanese characters, Firefox spellcheck doesn't know that word) in the subject line. Or at least I think they're random. And a name, Perkins something. If it was in any other context than my spam folder it might almost be kind of creepy.

    lol, all of this

    pretty sure we all know what kanji is here.

    don't have to explain it to us, thank you very much

    i could sound just like you if I wanted to and believe me that wouldn't be pleasant for any of us :p

    anyway, ontopic: i remember recieving an email from someone who tried to bullshit me that I knew them quite well, but otherwise it was the same "send $500 and we'll reroute $1.5Million into your bank account" crap. I don't get much spam.

    Actually, I was just checking if I had horribly mangled the word to the point of unreadability. What's your problem anyway? What did I ever do to you?

    You didn't. You can trust EVERYONE on these forums to correct you if you make a mistake like that, lol
    it's not really your fault, something about you just rubs me the wrong way

    don't worry too much about it, I'm kinda prejudiced against new users xD

    it kinda feels like you're trying too hard to fit in here, so much so that you stick out. just, go with the flow, y'know? be natural.

    If you receive an e-mail or fax from someone you do not know requesting your assistance in a financial transaction, such as the transfer of a large sum of money into an account, or claiming you are the next of kin to an wealthy person who has died, or the winner of some obscure lottery and suffered a significant financial loss related to the advance fee fraud (so-called "Nigerian scam"), please contact your local Secret Service field office. The Secret Service retains these messages for future investigations.

    Any type of Crime; Write to the Federal Trade Commission and also contact your State Attorneys General. Your state Attorney General or local office of consumer protection is also listed in the government pages of your telephone book.
    In Nigeria, they get the ministers to handle international money affairs. This is also probably one of the most common types of message.

    Subject: Urgent reply needed......

    Are you dead or alive? kindly reconfirm this as soon as possible..
    From the records of outstanding contractors/inheritance due for payment with the Federal Government of Nigeria, your name and company was discovered as next on the list of the outstanding payment who have not yet received their payments.Your payment will be released to you as soon as you respond to this letter. Also note that from the record in my file here, your outstanding contract/inheritance payment is US$25M united states dollars.
    Meanwhile, in the course of our General Auditing and Account revision of the final quarter of the year 2010 ending within few months now, we discovered that the Bank Accounts belonging to some Benefactors have been changed on the basis that the owners have died some time last year or have given out an authorization note of change of data.

    After the investigations however, it was revealed that there are Foreigners who are collaborating with Retired Staffs to make these changes illegally without the knowledge of the Bonafide Beneficiaries and one traced to your own change is one Mr Rick Jones who said you are dead, hence they have forwarded some documents of funeral service held for you so as to divert your fund. They have also forwarded this bank account below as the new account that will receive your funds ($25 Million) .Bank: Hang Seng Bank, Bank Address: 83 Des Veoux Road , Central - Hong Kong, Account Name: Rick Jones, Account Number: 235-325172-882, Bank Code: 024, Swift Code: HASEHKHH.

    But we wanted to confirm if actually this is true and hence decided to write to your email address which after 2 days from now and there is no response, we will then know that you are dead indeed and go on with the transfer. If proved otherwise by you that you are not dead and you did not send anyone to claim your fund and change your account. Please forward to us all the your particulars including your full name, Telephone number,contact address, sex, age and occupation as well as your identification either international passport or dirver's liecense.These details from you will help to assist us to reach a conclusion that you are not dead. Anything contrary to this claim will help us charge this man to court and prosecute him while your fund will be paid to you immediately without any further delay. You have to get back to us on time for us to commence legal proceedings against Mr. Rick Jones and his accomplices.
    Kindly re-confirm to us the following informations bellow:
    Your names in full,
    Your contact Address,
    Telephone/fax numbers and Cell,
    occupation, age, and sex, marital status,
    copy of international passport or driver's Lincense.
    As soon as I received these information, I shall get back to you on what next to do .

    but yeah, I don't get much spam.
    Mostly spam with titles like:

    No, those e-mails are fake. He must have put his e-mail account in a different website, thus spambots make e-mails to that account saying that their WoW account was banned for some reason, and then they give you a fake link to a login screen forcing you to put your information in it. I've gotten those e-mails a million times on my old e-mail account, and my WoW account has never been phased. (It has been hacked before, but not by clicking the links in the fake e-mails.)

    I could have sworn I used to get e-mails on how to get the best orgasms for women before.

    Rawr's was hilarious

    Here's one of mine


    Dear Friend.


    I will like you to help me, in receiving of this fund into your Bank Account .However; it's just my urgent need for foreign partner that made me to contact you for this transaction. I am the manager of bill and exchange at the foreign remittance Department of BANK OF AFRICA (B.O.A) here in Ouagadougou , Burkina Faso. In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of (US$27.2 Million dollars) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign Customer (MR. PAUL LOUIS from Paris, France) who died along with His entire family in July 2003 in a plane crash.

    I am afraid if this money stays in our bank without claim for long period of time, our government will step in because
    The Banking laws here does not allow such huge amount of money to stay
    Dormant for more than 8years. And you will be receiving this money into your Bank account within 10 or 14 banking days.

    The Banking law and guideline here stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed after Eight years an above, the money will be transferred into the Bank treasury as unclaimed fund. I agree that 30% of this money will be for you as foreign partner in respect to the provision of a foreign account, and while 70%would be for me.

    If you agree to my business proposal, further details of the transfer will be forwarded to you as soon as I receive your return mail. Make sure you keep this transaction as your top secret and make it confidential till we receive the fund into the account that you will provide to the Bank. Don't disclose it to any body, because the secrecy of this transaction is as well as the success of it, have a great day.

    Place contact me immediately
    Yours faithfully.
    Mrs Mimi Philip

    I am really attracted to your pictures you posted on your page

    Each and everyone one of us are going through tough times right now, but God is getting ready to bless you in a way that only He can. Keep the faith.
    My instructions were to pick four people that I wanted God to bless, and I picked you. Please pass this to at least (4) people you want to be blessed and a copy back to me.
    This prayer is powerful, and prayer is one of the best gifts we receive.
    There is no cost but a lot of rewards. Let's continue to pray for one another.

    The prayer:
    Father, I ask You to bless my friends, relatives and those that I care deeply for, who are reading this right now. Show them a new revelation of your love and power. Holy Spirit, I ask You to minister to their spirit at this very moment. Where there is pain, give them your peace and mercy. Where there is self-doubt, release a renewed confidence through your grace. Where there is need, I ask you to fulfill their needs. Bless their homes, families, finances, their goings and their comings. In Jesus' precious name. Amen.
