What Do They Take Me For?

Do people really think I was born yesterday? Sending me emails and giving me free cash. Ya right... It was two months ago that I received a similar email and now this. I must say I like this one better than the other one. The other one sounded like it was written by an overzealous Christian...

I hate spams that gets through GMail's spam filter.

Attention please,

I am a dealer in Electric Submersible Pumps, which I import from China.

In October 2007, I received 2 containers from my shipper/freight Forwarder, and one of the containers contained 3 boxes, which obviously did not contain pumps. I took them out and broke open the lock of one box and was surprised to discover that it was packed full with US$100 Bills! I broke the second and the third and they both contained US$ bills. The 3 boxes were stacked full with US$100 Dollar Notes! My guess would be about 30 million or even more! I invited my Shipper, who has become a close friend after many years. I showed him what I found and demanded for an explanation. He was shocked, but recovered to explain that an error must have occurred at the loading dock(during inspection) in Taiwan, where the Loading of my pumps was done.

We both strongly suspected that they were fakes, and I took 5 Notes (US$500) and went to my Bank for checking. To my surprise, my Banker said they were genuine US money! I also went to another bank to crosscheck, and the money was confirmed as genuine. We decided to wait to see if any one would come for the money...

Several months have now passed and no one has come forward to claim the boxes. This is finders keepers. I am not obliged by Japanese law to report the money, and I might even enter into real trouble if I do report this find. I have therefore decided to seek for outside help. I need an honest person who can come to Japan and take the boxes, one at a time and put the money in a suitable bank abroad. If you agree to become my Partner, you must come to Japan first and see all the money; Then, you will travel back to your Country with 1 Box. When you have successfully deposited the money in a safe Bank account, you will come back for the second box, and finally the last.

Because I have no documents covering this money, I cannot spend this money in Japan. Even trying to deposit US$500 into my Bank account will invite an investigation.The Japanese currency is the Yen, and any other currency, especially the US Dollar is closely monitored. This is why I need your assistance to take this money out of Japan and put in a Bank...

The money is in excess of US$30 million and we can share it 50/50 (US$15 plus each of us) or enter into a joint venture business in your Country. From my share, I will take care of my Shipper/Agent.

If you reply, I will give you my phone and fax numbers for a much more secure communication.
Thank you!

Your best bet is to lead them along. Ask them to pay your travel money, cover airport expenses, seem enthusiastic and gullible. Ask for 'help' getting out of the country, transferring funds from your dead aunt's account, all from the comfort of your own home.

Ooooooh money. :P

(yes, I'm easy to scam - but no risk, no reward no? :P)

If all fails - at least I get to fuck Kenji Nakazawa for scamming me. Literally.
