    Another Scam

    These scams get weirder by the day. Not only do I get the widow's money in this one but the 12 y/o daughter too.

    PASS...

    Dear
    It took me time and divine intervention to write you this mail as we
    have never had any correspondence before. Actually, I got your e-mail
    from the online classified posted on the net.
    My name is BAR.Chas Robert. I am an attorney to mrs Janet Oslo
    here in Senegal west Africa. Who is currently very sick with an effected cancer
    on her brest.
    There is an urgent need for my contacting you as I recently have been
    opportuned to have access to US$8,500,000.00(eight million five hundred
    thousand United States Dollars Only). Access to this fund is made
    available by this woman who happens to be a cancer patient in the hospital for some
    months now. She is well known in this community and aside being a major
    real estate agent she is a magnet in environmental management and was a
    lisencened oil merchant before now.
    Unfortunately she has been living and struggling with breast cancer for
    close to 14 months now though she is unmarried. She has a 12yrs old
    daughter.Whom she made a will to this amount.

    She has been through a first operation and still to undergo a final
    operation within the next few days.

    Based on my last discussion with her yesterday afternoon on the future
    of her daughter should she not be lucky. She said that the fund should be
    invested. Unfortunately I'm definitely not in a position to run things
    which is why I seek your assistance in taking control of managing the fund.
    The fund was deposited in a security company in Europe.I have every details about the fund
    in my chamber and how this fund will be released.
    I have resolved with her on an agreement that will be drawn up by you
    on a yearly charge that will be paid to you for taking control and managing
    the fund while half of the proceed will be given for the development of
    treatment of cancer patients. The rest will remain with you for the up
    keep of her daughter. I will also like to know if you can take the young
    girl.

    I pray you to be of assistance to this course and I'd like to add that
    sometimes I receive unsolicited mails so I hope mine does not come as
    an embarrassment to you but if it does please accept my apologies
    and please reply to my private emailbest_way04@yahoo.com).
    Thanks very much and hoping to read from you soon.
    Regards,
    Bar.Chas Robert.

    My niece is selling her car & placed an advert on the internet. All she has heard from is scammers with all sorts of stories. She's only young & phoned me up saying, "This woman [telephone] has said if I give her &#163;100 she has three buyers for the car at asking price. Another guy [email] has said if I give him my bank details he will wire the money", all sorts of shit.

    The thing is, she was going to go for the &#163;100 one. I've stopped it now, obviously, but there are people out there who fall for this kind of shit every day.

    Take your pick: it costs the scammers nothing to try, they need to succeed only once to turn a profit, there are enough mugs out there to fall for the oldest and most obvious scams, and even more for those with a novel twist.

    How, exactly, would God direct ones attention to the online-classifieds section?

    Send a plauge of locusts to type the address into the browser just so? Part your PC to exactly the right spot? Cause the PC to burst into flame, talk, demand that he sacrifice his son, and then say: 'Ha! Just kididng, it was a test... here, look at these classifieds'. Is God even PC-literate?

    These questions and more demand answers! I think you should email back and ask him.

    Is that the same guy who took you on another scam ride in Indonesia ? I thought you gave him up to the police already ?

    He apparently works in mysterious ways. Just recently I have come to understand this to be entirely tue.

    Divine intervention would ideally mean that the writer got cancer, and the recipient kept their money.
