            Not really a scam but irratating rubbish - love the congress/parliament bit


            Hi
            Sharon, your mate James here.

            This is just a quick email, rather than bothering you with a call. I trust you are well ?

            I wanted to see if you've been injured lately at home or work ?

            If so then parliament/congress is willing to compensate you.

            It's shocking that 7 out of 10 people in the country who were injured don't bother claiming the compensation they are legally entitled to.

            Don't become one of them! It takes only 30 seconds to get the amount of money your entitled to.

            Get your quid today.

            crap link removed ... to see how much you will receive.



            Cheers,
            James

              Makes you wonder why Nigeria is a poor country when there'$ $o much ca$h floating around!

              Dear Friend,

              It is my warmest pleasure writing you this confidential business letter with a view that you will accept my request and give me positive response hence, time is essence.

              I am the Chief Financial Director of Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC). this organization responsible for the conduct of all elections recently held in my country, Nigeria. However, the last military Government of Nigeria gave my organizations One Billion United States Dollars (US$1Billion) to conduct all the elections beginning from Local Government Elections, State House of Assembly, Governorship, House of Representatives, Senate and the Presidential Election.

              Consequently, all the various stages of the elections were conducted with the fund disbursed to us by the government to conduct these elections. We utilized Eight hundred million United States Dollars (US$800M) only out of the total fund for conducting this election.Having concluded the various stages of the elections and elected Officers including the president Sworn into office in may 29th 2007. Two Hundred Million United States Dollars (US$200M) was left in our treasury Account and as the Chief Financial Director of (INEC), I had given a financial analysis to the Government prior to handing over to the new administration to the successful incoming President (Late Umaru Musa Yar'Adua).

              In view of this, I in confidence require your assistance to allow us to work with you in this project by transferring the sum of Fifty five Million United States Dollars (US$55M) into your Corporate or Private Account pending when we will proceed to your country in order to meet with you for the disbursement of the fund accordingly we have tender to the authorities that the sum of One Hundred and Forty Five Million United States Dollars (US$145M) only, was remaining in our treasury account.

              With this development the sum of Fifty five Million United States Dollars (US$55M) will be secretly transferred into an overseas account for both of us benefits since other Top government Officials from other parastatals are transferring very huge amount that is more than this into many countries in the world based on where they have their own contact even the current President, Ministers, Senators and Governors of my country are more richer than the businessmen in the country.

              NOTE: This transaction is top confidential because I am still in service and would not like this information to be heard anywhere. For assisting us in this project we are ready to give you 22% of the total sum upon the successful transfer of this fund with your assistance. However, 75% of the total sum would be for us (Nigeria Partners) while the remaining 3% of the total has been earmarked to take care of expenses made by both partners (Yourself and Nigeria Partners) during the cost of the transaction.

              Every arrangement towards this fund transfer has been worked out hence the reason why we require your positive response and immediate assistance we are sure of concluding this deal within Ten working days of your acceptance and after which the money will be remitted into your account by telegraphic wire transfer through the Central Bank of Nigeria(CBN).

              You are absolutely assured that there is no risk involved in your participation, besides, be notified that this transaction must remain Top Secret and Confidential between us until the fund is successfully transferred into your account.

              Further details would be conveyed to you once I receive your reply and then I will brief you on what is required from you to execute this transaction.

              Thank you immensely for your urgent and favorable attention to this letter.

              Yours Truly,

              Dr.J. Lawis

                I know its not fair...its not right...and its not legal...and in no way do I tolerate it or except it...BUT...in one way I look at it as survival of the fittest , Mankinds way of one less off person wanting from a more well off person ...its how we have been dealing with each other for thousands of years...Usually we would burn villages ,rape and kill ect...Strength and courage helped win in times gone by, now every village in the whole world can take from any other village depending on how cunning they are...errr...type of thing...Its modern day survival of the fittest IMO...even tho they are scamming ba**erds.

To determine if 2 accounts are connected, we may look at financial information, contact information, or buying and selling activity.

                      It looks like your account is associated with another. As such, you will not be able to sell on eBay until we are able to confirm your identity. In order to confirm your identity please click on the following link and complete all required information.

When any prior restrictions or suspensions on that account have been lifted, we'll be able to restore selling to your eBay account.

                                Yes, these are very common, I've been getting phishing emails purporting to be from banks since 2001, not just from the UK banks but also the Commonwealth Bank, ANZ Bank, First National Bank, etc.

                                Also lots of emails saying my PayPal account has been restricted etc. If you look at the email addresses themselves, they are not genuine, nor are the webpages they link to, the domains could be anything. If you hover over the link without clicking, you can see the URL it links to, and it won't be the real bank or Paypal site.

                                It's a good idea to report the phishing emails, although I've been doing so since 2001 and still receive them.
