Grumpy old fart!!!

"If you talk to God you're religious. If God talks to you, you're psychotic."

Too good to be true?

Every day we read of man’s inhumanity towards his fellow man (and women) that one can become anaesthetised to the plight of others. It’s therefore comforting to know that there are still generous benefactors who are prepared to replenish my depleted bank account, only providing my confidential details, I am deeply touched and my faith in humanity has been restored thanks to Helena Pavluchenko and the Yukos Oil Company my saviour.

 My name is Helena Pavluchenko and I represent Yukos Oil Company in Russia.

 I have a confidential business proposal to ask for your partnership in transfering funds US$46 Million.

 I will give the details, but in summary, the funds are coming via Bank Menatep. This is a legitimate transaction.

 You will be paid 40% as your commission/compensation for your active efforts and contribution to the success of this transaction.

 If you are interested, please do indicate by providing me with your confidential details. 

Regards,

Helena Pavluchenko

Spam or Scam

Recently, I’m sure like many others I received the following email advising me that I am in line to inherit in the region of $10,000,000. Naturally being a trusting soul my heart leapt with joy at the prospect of an unknown relative leaving such a vast sum; passing over my children, brother, sister, mother and a whole tribe of cousins.

 Watching much too much television heir hunters is on the viewing list; therefore if this is genuine wouldn’t they have already found my address and relatives through their extensive search process? Clearly not. No unclaimed wealth for me, it looks like I won’t be able to give the two finger salute to the jobcentre just yet. Perhaps I might take advantage of the numerous emails informing me that I have won the lottery, but again unlikely as I don’t do it. Back to the job hunting – anyone know of any openings in an online sex shop????

Dear Friend,

We wish to notify you again that after series of search we found you as a beneficiary to the total sum of $10,685,000.00 (Ten Million Six Hundred and Eighty Five Thousand Euros) in the intent of the deceased (names now withheld since this is our second letter to you). We contacted you because you bear the same surname (last name) identity and therefore can present you as the beneficiary to the inheritance since there is no written will.

Our legal services aim to provide our private clients with a complete service. We are happy to prepare wills, set-up and administer Trusts, carry out the administration of estates and prepare an administer powers of attorney.

All the papers will be processed in your acceptance. In your acceptance of this deal, we request that you kindly forward to us your letter of acceptance; your current telephone and fax numbers and a forwarding address (Contact House Address) to enable us file necessary documents at our High court probate division for the release of this sum of money.

Kindly send your respond to me via: alonsochember@ozu.es as I shall furnish you with further details and show you more clear picture of this transaction.

Thanks and God bless you.

Yours faithfully,
