    Sadly, just enough to make it profitable.

    I was speaking to a guy in the Metropolitan Police who investigates these scams and he said that he'd had two new cases of people being ripped off that morning. Plus, a lot of these scams are still done by post and fax and they seem to have a higher success rate.

    It really amazes me that people are dumb enough to fall for something like this. Of course, it also amazes me that people let their children misbehave in public, leave their pets in hot cars, run red lights, throw litter out the window, not maintain their property, screw others because "it's not illegal", and all the other dumb things that I see almost every day.

    Now that I think about it, I can see where this might be profitable...

    I wonder if anyone would believe that a long lost treasure of King Tut's has just been found...and assistance is needed to get it to the U.S. ....

    The sad thing is that this will continue as long as fools believe in the get rich scheme, like the woman who handed over $2.1 Million from her bosses bank account, CLICK HERE

    Another email i got:

    Mrs. Sarah peters
    SANTOS LAYOUT ESTATE.
    123, XXX AVENUE.
    P M B 276.
    LOME -TOGO
    Reply to sarahpeters100@XXX.net
    PLEASE ENDEAVOUR TO USE IT FOR THE CHILDREN OF GOD
    ==================================================
    I am the above named person from Malaysia. I am married to Dr.Alan George
    peters who worked with Malaysia embassy in TOGO for nine years before he died
    in the year 2000. We were married for eleven years without a child. He died
    after a brief illness that lasted for only four days. Before his death we were
    both born again Christians.Since his death I decided not to re-marry or get a
    child outside my matrimonial home .When my late husband was alive he deposited
    the sum of $7.5Million (seven million and five hundred thousand U.S. Dollars)
    with one fidicuary agent In LONDON UK. My Doctor told me that I would not last
    for the next three months due to cancer problem. Though what disturbs me most is
    my stroke. Having known my condition I decided to donate this funds to church or
    better still a christian individual that will utilize this money the way I am
    going to instruct here in. I want a church or individual that will use this to
    funds churches, orphanages and widows propagating the word of God and to ensure
    that the house of God is maintained. The Bible made us to understand that
    Blessed is the hand
    that giveth. I took this decision because I don´t have any child that will
    inherit this money and my husband relatives are not Christians and I don´t want
    my husband´s hard earned money to be misused by unbelievers. I don´t want a
    situation where this money will be used in an ungodly manner, hence the reason
    for taking this bold decision. I am not afraid of death hence I know where I am
    going. I know that I am going to be in the bossom of the Lord. Exodus 14 VS 14
    says that the lord will fight my case
    and I shall hold my peace. I don´t need any telephone communication in this
    regard because of my health,and because of the presence of my husband´s
    relatives around me always. I don´t want them to know about this development.
    With God all things
    are possible. As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of
    the Fiduciary agent . I will also issue you a letter of authority that will
    empower you as the original- beneficiary of this fund. I want you and the church
    to always pray for me because
    the lord is my shephard. My happiness is that I lived a life of a worthy
    Christian. Whoever that wants to serve the Lord must serve him in spirit and
    truth. Please always be prayerful all through your life. Any delay in your reply
    will give me room in
    sourcing for a church or christian individual for this same purpose. I
    presently wishop with Synagogue church TOGO with pastor james paul the founder
    of the church, Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated
    herein. Hoping to hear from you.
    reply me& Remain blessed in the name of the Lord.
