I would have replied to this guy but you know, I just wouldn’t know what to do with the money…
So anyone else for some SPAM??? I especially like the part about “before his father gives up the ghost” – at least 10 points for interesting grammar and creativity throughout…
From: Mr. Simon Jones
Address: Rue 33 barree Cocody
Abidjan, Cote D’Ivoire.
Please I need your assistance,
With due respect and humility I write you this letter which I believe would be of great interest to me. I am Mr. Simon Jones, the only son of late Mr. and Mrs. Aliman Jones, my late father was a wealthy cocoa merchant based in Abidjan, the economic capital of Cote d’Ivoire, before he was poisoned to death by his business associates on one of their outing to discuss business.
When my mother died on the 21st Nov. 2000, my father took me so special because I am motherless and only child. Before the sudden death of my late father on the 10th of July 2010 in a private hospital here in Abidjan.
Before he gives up to the ghost, he secretly called me on his bedside and told me that he has the sum of US$5,500,000.00(Five Million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollar) left in account with a local banking and finance house here in Abidjan.
He also explained to me, that it was because of his wealth that he was poisoned by his business associates (as he was suspecting them). That I should seek for a foreign partner from any country of my choice, where I will transfer this money and use it for investment purposes (such as real estate management).
My money is legal and genuine, I inherited it from my late father, is only that I don’t want people here to know about it, that is why I seek for your assistance. Secondly, I don’t want to loose my life too, so please if you can help me transfer the money into your account and also arrange for my coming to meet you in your country.
Moreover, I am willing to offer you 10% of the total sum as compensation for your efforts/input after the successful transfer of this fund to your nominated bank account overseas.
Furthermore, you can indicate your option towards assisting me as I believe that this transaction would be concluded within seven (7) days, if you signify interest to assist me.
Anticipate receiving a favourable mail from you.
Thank you and God bless.
Mr. Simon Jones.
