Not had this one before . . . I have put it in the comments as it is rather long - but very funny - look out for the spelling and phrasing . . .

100 Chase Avenue, Yonkers, New York 10703, U.S.A.


The office of the international Police (INTERPOL) hereby write to inform you that we caught a diplomatic woman called Mrs. Barbara Kay

Anderson at (John F. Kennedy International Airport) here in New -York with parcel box filed with United State dollars.

Meanwhile, base on our interview to the diplomat (Mrs. Barbara Kay Anderson) she said that the parcel box belongs to you, that she was

sent by Alh. Ahmadu Giade of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency Nigeria to deliver the parcel box to your doorstep, not knowing

that the content of the parcel box is money. The diplomat also said that her first transit in the states was at Cincinnati Northern,

Kentucky International Airport Ohio.

Now, the diplomat is under detention in the office of (INTERPOL) security, and we cannot release her until we carry out our proper

investigation on how this huge amount of money managed to be yours before we will release her with the box. So, in this regard, you are

to re-assure and prove to us that the money you are about to receive is legal by sending us the Award Ownership Certificate showing that

the money is not illegal.

Note that the Award Ownership Certificate must be secure from the office of the Senate president in Nigeria, because that is the only

office that will issue you the original Award Ownership Certificate of these funds.

You are advised to forward immediately the Award Ownership Certificate if you have it with you. But if you do not have it, we will urge

you as a matter of urgency to contact back the sender of the diplomat to help you secure the Award Ownership Certificate if at all you

did not have it.

Below is the contact information of the person that sent the diplomat.

Name: Alh. Ahmadu Giade
Direct telephone no: +234-805-480-3209

Furthermore, we are giving you only but 5 working business days to forward the requested Award Ownership Certificate. Please note that we

shall get back to you after the 5 working business days, if you didnў?t come up with the certificate we shall confiscate the funds into

World Bank account then charge you for money laundry, but if you forward the Award Ownership Certificate then we will release the

diplomat with your parcel box and also give you every back up till the money arrives your doorstep.

Also note that we are doing this to make sure that any huge amount of money like yours that enters into United States is genuine. We

regret any inconveniences this might have caused you.

Thanks for your understanding, We are working for all interest.

Yours Truly,

I.P.A Region No: 3, Thanks.

Committee of Police Societies, NYPD.

haha, charge you for money laundry?!? they get worse don't they.

I have to say I never open emails that I dont know who the sender is, as it is possible to inadvertently catch a virus/worm when doing so. They just get instantly deleted.

I know this is less likely on a mac - no one has bothered to write viruses etc for them, as there are too few users ::smirks::

Westerwitch's Avatar With my email programme I have to click on the email to delete it which opens it . . . but as you say a smug Mac user . . . lets hope us user numbers stay small. Have noticed on the TV though that a lot of dramas, Fils etc all use Macs - product placement . . . smirk.

Withy Brook's Avatar Using IE, as I do, I have to tick a box beside the email and then tick delete or drag it to the bin. This does not open the email. Double smirk.

G was rung yesterday by a well-spoken man claiming to be looking after clients who were shareholders in a company that had been involved with something to do with a takeover. G had had shares in the company. After a great deal of talk he started to ask for G to 'identify' himself. We do not know what he was going to ask for because he was cut off sharpish by G, but I should think address for certain and possibly bank account etc. G had already said that he would never commit himself to anything without it in writing to which the reply was 'this is how it works nowadays' As the man sounded like an Etonian who might well work for a big company, some people might have been taken in.
