    DEAR FRIEND,

    I AM MRS. ********WIDOW OF LATE PRESIDENT MOBUTU
    *******OF ZAIRE? NOW KNOWN AS DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC
    OF CONGO (DRC). I AM MOVED TO WRITE YOU THIS LETTER,
    THIS WAS IN CONFIDENCE CONSIDERING MY PRESENT
    CIRCUMSTANCE AND SITUATION.

    I ESCAPED ALONG WITH MY HUSBAND AND TWO OF OUR SONS
    DENNIS KONGOLO AND BASHER OUT OF DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF
    CONGO (DRC) TO ABIDJAN, COTE D'IVOIRE WHERE MY FAMILY
    AND I SETTLED, WHILE WE LATER MOVED TO SETTLED IN
    MORROCO WHERE MY HUSBAND LATER DIED OF CANCER
    DISEASE. HOWEVER DUE TO THIS SITUATION WE DECIDED TO
    CHANGED MOST OF MY HUSBAND'S BILLIONS OF DOLLARS
    DEPOSITED IN SWISS BANK AND OTHER COUNTRIES INTO OTHER

    FORMS OF MONEY CODED FOR SAFE PURPOSE BECAUSE THE NEW

    HEAD OF STATE OF (DR) MR LAURENT KABILA HAS MADE
    ARRANGEMENT WITH THE SWISS GOVERNMENT AND OTHER
    EUROPEAN COUNTRIES TO FREEZE ALL MY LATE HUSBAND'S
    TREASURES DEPOSITED IN SOME EUROPEAN COUNTRIES. HENCE

    MY CHILDREN AND I DECIDED LAYING LOW IN AFRICA TO
    STUDY THE SITUATION TILL WHEN THINGS GETS BETTER,
    LIKE NOW THAT PRESIDENT KABILA IS DEAD AND THE SON
    TAKING OVER (JOSEPH KABILA). ONE OF MY LATE HUSBAND'S
    CHATEAUX IN SOUTHERN FRANCE WAS CONFISCATED BY THE
    FRENCH GOVERNMENT, AND AS SUCH I HAD TO CHANGE MY
    IDENTITY SO THAT MY INVESTMENT WILL NOT BE TRACED AND

    CONFISCATED. I HAVE DEPOSITED THE SUM OF EIHGTEEN
    MLLION UNITED STATE DOLLARS(US$18,000,000,00.) WITH A


    SECURITY COMPANY , FOR SAFEKEEPING. THE FUNDS ARE
    SECURITY CODED TO PREVENT THEM FROM KNOWING THE
    CONTENT. WHAT I WANT YOU TO DO IS TO INDICATE YOUR
    INTEREST THAT YOU WILL ASSIST US BY RECEIVING THE
    MONEY ON OUR BEHALF.ACKNOWLEDGE THIS MESSAGE, SO THAT
    I CAN INTRODUCE YOU TO MY SON (DENNIS) WHO HAS THE
    OUT MODALITIES FOR THE CLAIM OF THE SAID FUNDS. I WANT

    YOU TO ASSIST IN INVESTING THIS MONEY, BUT I WILL NOT
    WANT MY IDENTITY REVEALED. I WILL ALSO WANT TO BUY
    PROPERTIES AND STOCK IN MULTI-NATIONAL COMPANIES AND
    TO ENGAGE IN OTHER SAFE AND NON-SPECULATIVE
    INVESTMENTS. MAY I AT THIS POINT EMPHASISE THE HIGH
    LEVEL OF CONFIDENTIALITY, WHICH THIS BUSINESS
    DEMANDS, AND HOPE YOU WILL NOT BETRAY THE TRUST AND
    CONFIDENCE, WHICH I REPOSE IN YOU. IN CONCLUSION, IF
    YOU WANT TO ASSIST US , MY SON SHALL PUT YOU IN THE
    PICTURE OF THE BUSINESS, TELL YOU WHERE THE FUNDS ARE

    CURRENTLY BEING MAINTAINED AND ALSO DISCUSS OTHER
    MODALITIES INCLUDING REMUNERATION FOR YOUR SERVICES.

    FOR THIS REASON KINDLY FURNISH US YOUR CONTACT
    INFORMATION, THAT IS YOUR PERSONAL TELEPHONE AND FAX
    NUMBER FOR CONFIDENTIAL PURPOSE AND ACKNOWLEDGE
    RECEIPT OF THIS MAIL USING THE ABOVE EMAIL ADDRESS.

    BEST REGARDS,

    It's the first time I've had one from the Mrs. and reading http://www.secretservice.gov/alert419.shtml
    more and more people are falling victim!

    Hard to believe but apparently true!

    "The letter, while appearing transparent and even ridiculous to most, unfortunately is growing in its effectiveness." - Secret Service

    I guess that's why spammers are thriving - if there's that many people out there who will fall for this, there must be millions who will buy from spammers.

    Mousejockey, SS gave an email address to forward stuff to - did you send a copy with headers? Doubt it will make a diff, but . . .

    Don't forget to forward to abuse@ whatever the return address was and include the message header. So far I have nailed 4 of these guys and had their email accounts shutdown!!

    Run it through Spamcop before complaining to abuse@ - return addresses are often forged. And if Spamcop says their provider is fraudsrus@nigerianisps.com.ni or something like that, no point in bothering.
