Oh the email I get...

Obviously if you put an email address out there on a web site you are going to get junk mail. This nice guy wants me to give him my bank account number so he can put some money in it. If I do what he asks I will get Five million dollars just for helping him out. Wow I will be rich and then I can fish all the time. Except for the week when I have to go to Washington state to pick up my money from Bill Gates for forwarding his email to my friends.

Text of the nice Man's letter will be in the comments to this post if you are are interested. Obviously these things are not what they appear to be but anyone smart enough to fool a trout with some wire and fur and feathers would know that already.

Here is the text of the email that sparked this post:

Jim Charles
Natwest Bank Ltd
London UK

Dear Friend.
My name is Dr. Jim Charles, I am the credit manager of Natwest Bank Ltd here in the United Kingdom. I am contacting you of a business transfer,of a huge sum of money from a deceased account.
Though I know that a transaction of this magnitude will make any one
apprehensive and worried, but I am assuring you that everything has been taken care off, and all will be well at the end of the day. I decided to contact you due to the urgency of this transaction.
I am the account officer of a foreigner named Jean Gandesbery and her husband Robert Gandesbery who died in an air crash along with his wife on the January 31 in an Alaska airline Flight 261 with other passengers on board. You can confirm this from the website below which was published by

Since his death, none of his next-of-kin are alive to make claims for this money as his heir, because they all died in the same accident himself and his wife (May their soul rest in peace). We cannot release the fund from his account unless someone applies for claim as the
next-of-kin to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines.
Upon this discovery, I now seek your permission to have you stand as a next of kin to the deceased, as all documentations will be carefully worked out by me for the funds (US$18,500,000,00) to be released in your favor as the beneficiary's next of kin.
Because after four years the money will be called back to the bank treasury as unclaimed bills and the money shared amongst the directors of the bank. so it is on this note i decided to seek for whom his name shall be used as the next of kin/beneficiary to this funds rather
than allow the bank directors to share this money amongst themselves at the end of the year.
It may interest you to know that we have secured from the probate an order of mandamus to locate any of the deceased beneficiaries.
Please acknowledge receipt of this message in acceptance of our mutual
business endeavor by furnishing me with the following information if you are interested.
1.A Beneficiary name.In order for me to prepare the document for transfer of the funds in your name.
2. Direct Telephone and fax numbers.For our personal contact and mutual trust in each other.
I shall be compensating you with (30%)five million five hundred and fifty thousand dollars ($5,550,000,00) on final conclusion of this project for your assistance, while the balance $12,950,000 dollars shall be for me for investment purposes.
Because I intend to retire after the conclusion of this transaction. If this proposal is acceptable by you, please endeavor to contact me immediately. Do not take undue advantage of the trust I have bestowed in you,
I await your urgent response
Jim Charles

I hope Jim can find someone else to help him out because if I ever meet him I might punch him in the nose!
