Caution: SCAM IN PROGRESS


I must have sucker written all over me. I received both of these baited scam hooks the same day (Joyce & Rachel: If they are any “takers” remember, I get 10% finder’s fee):

(email address here)

Dear Attn:,
It is my pleasure to write you after much consideration since telephone communication can not be suitable enough to communicate to you at first.
Being the only Daughter of my father, late Michael Atomu from LIBERIA, My father was limited liability Cocoa and Gold merchant in LIBERIA before his untimely death.
After his business trip to GHANA ,to negotiate on a cocoa and Gold business he wanted to invest in Ghana.
A Week after he came back from GHANA, he was attacked with my mother by unknown assassins, which my mother died instantly but my father died after five days in a private hospital on that faithful afternoon.
I didn't know that my father was going to leave me after I had lost my mother.
But before he DIED, it was as if he knew he was going to die. my father, MAY HIS SOUL REST IN PERFECT PEACE he disclosed to me that he deposited the sum of $18,000,000,00 US Dollars (EIGHTEEN MILLION DOLLARS) IN GHANA .
That the money was ment for his cocoa and Gold company he wanted to establish in Ghana.
Though, according to my father he deposited the money in security company and handed to me all the relevant documents of the deposited Box and instructed me to seek for a reliable and trust worthy partner for a life time investment abroad.
Now I have succeeded in locating the security company here in Ghana. The name of the security company is Coastal Security and Finance Company in GHANA .
Therefore, I am soliciting for your assistance to help me get this Box out from the security company. If possible you can come over here in Ghana and transfer the fund to your account so that we can invest it in any meaningful/lucrative business in your country because this is my only hope and source of livelihood.
I am anxiously waiting to hear from you so that we can discuss the modalities of this transaction.
All informations needed is your personal telephone / fax number , your home address and your personal photo .
Please kindly contact me through the above email address: joyce_4luv2007@yahoo.com immediately for more discussion .
Thanks for your kind attention.
Yours sincerely
Joyce Atomu.

I get about 10 of these every day...even at school which is supposed to have such a GREAT filter. My husband's business partner actually takes the time to repond asking them several questions and just generally messing around with them. They never respond to him......

eht,
Speaking of unsolicited emails and things, almost every day I get a call from a certain gutter appointment trying to line us up an appointment. About 2 years ago we bought that type of gutter that will not let leaves in from their competitor and I told them and would they please take our name off their list. Then, they call the next day, same sales pitch. One day, they didn't call. Then the next day when they called I told them I missed them calling yesterday, was somebody sick? I told them I looked forward to their call every day.
They quit calling.

P.S. You might find my new post interesting. It is about the Post Office.

Judy,
I replied to your postal posting, in a side-stepping manner.
Steve,
Yes, I get them from all sides all the time and they are a pain.
