Standard old style email from a scam outfit. These were the days:

My beloved,

It is my pleasure to contact you for a business venture which I intend to establish in your country.Though I have not met with you before but I believe, one has to risk confiding in someone to succeed sometimes in life.

There is this amount of FIFTEEN Million US Dollars which my Father deposited with a security company .. blah blah blah.


Email was forwarded to a scam baiter,

Dear Miss Adams,

Thank you very much for your email, which I must admit I found very interesting and I have given it some serious thought. Unfortunately at this present time I am unable to be of any help to you as my company are trying to complete a very very important project for one of the UK's largest book publishing clients. This current contract is worth over 2.3 million UK pounds to us and I cannot afford to devote my time and resources to any other project at the moment. It is vital that this project is completed on time.

We regularly publish audio books for the blind, and we are currently have three position available... .


If you get bored, have a read about this idiot (2 pages) getting conned into reading out and recording the whole book 'The Hitchhiker's Guide to The Galaxy' onto MP3 files then getting conned again. Bit old but they were good
