Tall Tales and Long Tails

It never ceases to amaze me the tall tales some will create to commit their crimes. The Nigerian Scams are still running thick on the Internet. Here's yet another one I received in a pm from one of the forums I frequent, and yes they really do have all these spelling errors and lack of proper grammar included in their scams.

I think these people need to have some long tails sent after them for their tall tales! After all, law enforcement uses long tails to chase after other criminals, so I just wish we had a way to send some long tails after these people! Woof!

From Miss Esther

Permit me to inform you of my desire of going into business relationship with you. I am Miss Esther Johnson the only daughter of late Mr and Mrs Fredrick Johnson. My father was a very wealthy cocoa merchant in Abidjan, the economic capital of Ivory Coast before he was poisoned to death by his business associates on one of their outing to discus on a business deal.

When my mother died on the 21st October 1985, my father took me special because i was his only daughter.and motherless. Before the death of my father in a private hospital here in Abidjan.He secretly called me on his bedside and told me that he has a sum of $8.500.000.00 left in a suspense account in a prime Bank here in Abidjan, that he used my name as his only daughter as the next of kin in deposit of the fund.

He also explained to me that it was because of this wealth and some huge amount of money his business associates supposed to balance him from the business they had that he was poisoned by his business associates, that I should seek for a God fearing foreign partner in a country of my choice where I will transfer this money and use it for investment purpose, (such as real estate management).

I honourably seeking your assistance in the following ways.
(1).To serve as the guardian of this fund since I did not have any idea of any business.
(2.)To assist me provide a Bank account where this money would be transferred to.
(3.)To make arrangement for me to cmoe over to your countryto continue my education
since my late father has adviced me to leave the country.

I am willing to offer you 15% of the sum a compensation for effort input after the successful transfer of this fund to your designate account overseas. Anticipating to hear from you soon.

Thanks and God Bless.
Best regards.
Esther
