    We all get spam emails proclaiming we've won some lottery, need to send an amount of money to Africa to recover a family fortune or some other very enticing offer. I think we should have a thread to laugh about the funniest/dumbest ones. Add yours

    of course I even included my bank account # so they could wire it over. I always go above and beyond what is required.

    Subject: Can I Trust You ? ( Confirm & Respond )

    Hello There,

    My name is Heather Ross, Assistant Station Manager, Tikrit-American Red
    Cross working here in Iraq with the military. With a desperate need for
    assistance, I have summed up courage to contact you. I am seeking your
    kind assistance to move the sum of 4.8 million (Four Million Eight
    hundred thousand United States Dollars) to you as far as I can be
    assured that the money will be used for charity and humanitarian
    purposes as strictly requested by the owner.

    Source of money: The money belonged to Cpl. Dustin R. Brisky, 26, of
    Round Rock, Texas, died June 4 in Tallil, Iraq, of wounds suffered from
    an explosion. He was assigned to the Army Reserve's 952nd Engineer
    Company, Paris, Texas. The unit was attached to the 92nd Engineer
    Battalion, 3rd Sustainment Brigade, 3rd Infantry Division, and Fort
    Stewart, Ga. This money was part of his share from the money they
    discovered in barrels at a farmhouse near one of Saddam's old palaces in
    Tikrit, Iraq during a rescue operation. He was hoping to move the money
    out of Iraq before he died. I was attending to him when he confided in
    me and told me about the money. His last wish was that I should help him
    make arrangement to move the money out of Iraq but then i had to contact
    you to receive it so that you can use it to help the less privileged and
    other charitable activities that will uplift and profit humanity and

    With the help of an Irish contact working here, whose office enjoys
    immunity, I was able to get the package out of Iraq to Scotland where it
    is quite safe. Now the Irish contact does not know the real contents of
    the package. They believe that they are personal valued properties of
    the late Dustin Brisky who trusted me to hand over the package to his
    family before he died. Now I have just found a very secured way of
    delivering this package to you without any problems. Now I have agree to
    do this with you which I will want you to keep it highly confidential
    between the both of us, and I have decided to split the money this way,
    50 Percent goes to the charity organization and less privilege, 20
    Percent for you, 20 Percent for me while 10 Percent will be map out for
    expenses inquired during the process of delivery of the consignment to
    you. I will discuss this with you when I receive your response to this
    mail assuring me of your willingness and capability to handle this
    safely and disburse the money as instruc

    I do not have a lot of time as they're already delays and safe keeping
    charges on shipment because the shipment was not sent out for delivery
    on the date that was stated.

    I look forward to a quick response from you. Just click reply and get
    back to me.

    Heather Ross.

    I'm turning blue... holding my breath.... waiting for my share.

    So I get a great email yesterday. Its one that's everyone's received at one time. Its the .. hey forward this email and Bill Gates will send you $250 / person you send it to.. email. Yeah, it apparently is still going around. That's not what shocked me. What shocked me is this. My daytime 'job' is in finance proving loans from a few million to tens of millions of dollars. I just got it sent to me by someone who's asking for my group to provide him with a $20+ million loan on some real estate. And he added a message 'hey its probably a joke but you never know!' And he wants to borrower $20m?

    Rhetorical question: Who should go to jail when someone falls for this sort of thing?

    The person who sent it or the person who fell for it?

    Just wondering?
