Listen, Blossom, it's the same deal.

Bring the package to my door, and you'll get your $108. And because I'm a generous and fundamentally very nice person, I'll let you keep one of the gold bars.

And who are you calling "Twotter", might I ask?

No, Dushan hombre, I put you down as an alternative address, if I was out. I guess you have Capot's gold or whatever. You will split his $108 with me I hope ?

They are getting better

This e-mail arrived today and the English is as good as mine, wonder who is teaching them ?

From: "David Hands" <david.hands3@live.com>To: undisclosed-recipients

Good day,

I am David Hands. I have emailed you earlier on without any response from you.On my first email I mentioned about my late client Daniel,
whose relatives I cannot get in touch with. But both of you have the same last name so it will be very easy to front you as his official next of kin.
I am compelled to do this because I would not want the finance house to push my clients funds into their treasury as unclaimed inheritance. If
you are interested you do let me know so that I can give you Comprehensive details on what we are to do.

Yours faithfully,

David Hands

And the lack of apostrophe in "clients", not to mention ending a sentence with a preposition...

...whose relatives I cannot get in touch with.
Nervous, I hope your English is better than that

This evening I was invited to pay to become a member of a "premier networking organization for distinguished professionals". As if!

The delight was towards the end of the HTML in the invitation...

This arrogant bastard needs a lesson.


I am really scared. I am shitting myself and trembling in fear waiting for the knock on the door.

What must I do? Please easily becuase I am very old and do not understand the internet properly.

Thank you

FBI ? Homepage

Attention,this is the final warning you are going to receive from me do you get me?

I hope you understand how many times this message has been sent to you?.

We have warned you so many times and you have decided to ignore our e-mails or because you believe we have not been instructed to get you arrested, and today if you fail to respond back to us with the payment
then, we would first send a letter to the mayor of the city where you reside and direct them to close your bank account until you have been jailed and all your properties will be confiscated by the fbi.

We wouldalso send a letter to the company/agency that you are working for so that they could get you fired until we are through with our investigations because a suspect is not suppose to be working for the government or any
private organization.

Your id which we have in our database been sent to all the crimes agencies in America for them to inset you in their website as an internet fraudsters and to warn people from having any deals with you. This would have been
solved all this while if you had gotten the certificate signed, endorsed and stamped as you where instructed in the e-mail below. this is the federal bureau of investigation (fbi) am writing in response to the e-mail
you sent to us and am using this medium to inform you that there is no more time left to waste because you have been given from the 3rd of January. As stated earlier to have the document endorsed, signed and stamped without
failure and you must adhere to this directives to avoid you blaming yourself at last when we must have arrested and jailed you for life and all your properties confiscated.

You failed to comply with our directives and that was the reason why we didn't hear from you on the 3rd as our director has already been notified about you get the process completed yesterday and right now the warrant of
arrest has been signed against you and it will be carried out in the next 48hours as strictly signed by the fbi director. We have investigated and found out that you didn't have any idea when the fraudulent deal was
committed with your information's/identity and right now if you id is placed on our website as a wanted person, i believe you know that it will be a shame to you and your entire family because after then it will be
announce in all the local channels that you are wanted by the fbi. As a good Christian and a honest man, I decided to see how i could be of help to you because i would not be happy to see you end up in jail and all your
properties confiscated all because your information's was used to carry out a fraudulent transactions, i called the efcc and they directed me to a private attorney who could help you get the process done and he stated that
he will endorse, sign and stamp the document at the sum of $98.00 usd only and i believe this process is cheaper for you.

You need to do everything possible within today and tomorrow to get this process done because our director has called to inform me that the warrant of arrest has been signed against you and once it has been approved, then
the arrest will be carried out, and from our investigations we learnt that you were the person that forwarded your identity to one impostor/fraudsters in Nigeria when he had a deal with you about the transfer of some illegal
funds into your bank account which is valued at the sum of $10.500,000.00 usd.

I pleaded on your behalf so that this agency could give you till 26/08/2013 so that you could get this process done because i learnt that you were sent several e-mail without getting a response from you, please bear it in mind that this is the only way that i can be able to help you at this moment or you would have to face the law and its consequences once it has befall on you. You would make the payment through western union money transfer with
the below details.

Senders Full Name==
Sender Full Address=

Send the payment details to me which are senders name and address, mtcn number, text question and answer used and the amount sent. Make sure that you didn't hesitate making the payment down to the agency by today so that
they could have the certificate endorsed, signed and stamped immediately without any further delay. After all this process has been carried out,then we would have to proceed to the bank for the transfer of your compensation funds which is valued at the sum of $10.500,000.00 usd which was suppose to have been transferred to you all this while.

Note/ all the crimes agencies have been contacted on this regards and we shall trace and arrest you if you disregard this instructions. You are given a grace today to make the payment for the document after which yourfailure to do that will attract a maximum arrest and finally you will be appearing in court for act of terrorism, money laundering and drug trafficking charges, so be warned not to try any thing funny because you
are been watched.

Jeezz. If one needs to scare another one, they should at least make it brief enough not to be too boring to read up to the end?

Another one (allegedly) from USPS:-


USPS Notification

Our company`s courier couldn`t make the delivery of package.

REASON: Postal code contains an error


SERVICE: One-day shipping



Read the attachment for details.

An additional information:

If the package isn`t received within 15 working days our company will have the right to claim compensation from you for it`s keeping in the amount of $8.88 for each day of keeping of it.
Thank you for using our service.
USPS Global

Odd amount of compensation required. And could be interesting being sued in the US.

Big thread deviation here but the above post reminds me:

My poor ol' MIL received a bunch of books she had not ordered from Reader's Disgust. Left outside door, being blind (her not the door) she took 'em in. Then was pestered by RD as to when she was going to pay for them, having "accepted" them.

I typed/printed her a letter to send along the lines of "thank you for delivering books for storage at this facility. Our charges are xxx per day and since they have been here for (so many) days we would be glad to receive your check in payment to the amount of......etc etc". She sent it off.

Reader's Disgust collected their crappy old abridged novels the next day.

Hey, vaqueroaero, that's really kind of you, sure you can pick it up. Could you wire me $500 to cover my costs at this end, I'll send you the FedEx details on request. Then we can, as you say, split the contents.


P.S. Watch out for Capetonian claim-jumping.
