Dear Sir:

Thank you very much for your quick reply. This clears everything up
entirely, and I am very eager to proceed. However unfortunately your
scanned passport did not actually arrive attached to this message.
Please send your scanned passport soonest so that we may proceed.

As-Salaam Alaykum,

Jimbo Jones


Amusing side note: this entire exchange is actually visible FROM the front page of the domain he's emailing me at. I thought about going friends-only with this, but what the hell let's go for broke and see if he remains dull enough not even to bother checking it out. I'm betting that's a yes.

Wow, it's like a lottery for people sharing a surname so you're twice the winner, aren't you?

A WINNER IS ME!

I have to admit I know this shit is old hat but I am kinda looking forward to the stage where I get him to have a picture taken of himself with a stupid sign "so I know it's him."

That's goofy. It reminds me of some real estate I tried to buy on eBay. The guy had a picture of some land in a spot we wanted to we tried to buy it. He says Ok, he'll need 10% up front (right away - $3,500). Ok, but first we'll need proof that you own it and some kind of contract, etc. He says blah blah the eBay ad has you agree to pay 10% down right away I knew you guys were amateurs and you didn't know what you were doing. We think: dude, the only proof we have is a PICTURE of some woods! and you want 3k? And demand it with bad hick-country one-toothed grammar? I think not. We had a laugh over that one.

see if you can make him photo-document the whole going-to-the-bank process on his side.

hahahaha! I love that he's using your online name as if that's your real name.

Why would they get 60%? That doesn't seem fair.

hehe I got a similar e-mail :

Dear xxxxx,

Thank you for your email concerning the inheritance of mutual benefit. We have contacted you hoping that you are willing and able to collect the funds on our behalf. The details will be given on your response.

Kindly provide us with more of your details for easier processing of these transactions. I would want you to send to me the following information so that I can prepare the necessary documents that will enable us make this claims without any problem. I will call you once I receive your response.

Any form of Identification of yours:
Names in Full:
Contact Address:
Tel:
Occupation:

Our late client did not leave any record of any of his relatives. His last Will gives us the power to nominate a beneficiary for this sum by codicil. So we have contacted you because you bear the same surname as the testator and will be easier to present you rather than loose this amount to the authorities without any claim. You and we will do all the paper work here.

I would respectfully request that you keep the contents of my messages and other forms of communications private and also to kindly respect the integrity of the information you came by as a result of this transaction. I send you this mail not without a measure of conscience as to what is involved in this transaction, but I know within me that nothing ventured is nothing gained and that Success and Wealth never come on a platter of gold. This is one truth I have learned from my private law experience and my clients too. Do not betray my confidence reposed in you.

I wish to inform you that all contacts between us MUST be restricted to this email account and my direct telephone number for now. Once I get a favorable response from you, a simple draft of such an application will be sent to you. All you need do then is fill out the application and send it directly to the bank in which the fund is deposited. I shall provide you with the necessary contact information for the bank.

I await your prompt correspondence.

Yours faithfully,
Mike Logsdon



I think my guy is nicer - he doesn't talk about splitting the money :D
