Marvellous email received just now:

From: drmichael_george@gmx.de
Subject: YOUR REPLY

Hello,

My name is Dr. Michael George of {CBN}. I am informing you of an attempt by some men to collect your payment of $5M on your behalf. I had to ask them why they came to see me in person and they said that they came to collect your funds which rightfully belongs to you as shown in your file with us, on your behalf and by your authorization.

However, I am writing you this email to find out from you if you actually sent them. Note that they actually tendered some vital paperworks which proved that you actually sent them to collect these funds. Below is the list of paperwork which they presented.

*Letter of administration *Order to release *High court injunction

I want to hear from you before I order the release of the funds to these men who claim to be your representatives because they will be back to my office next week. I decided to carry out this decision based on my work experience and this is a risk I cannot take because I have not heard anything from you.

Kindly direct your response to my email address for quicker deliberation on the release of your funds to you.

Yours faithfully,

Dr Michael George.

As I said, doc, just give it to them. But hey — I’m feeling generous. Keep 10% for yourself, OK? But be quick about it: I’m about to delete your message.

Crikey! You’d think they’d actually bother to write decent English if they are trying to convince you …

Rachel, I’ve seen examples of people falling for much simpler and worse written tricks. For an amusing time waster, check out http://www.419eater.com, which is recipients of these emails attempting to con the conmen out of money. Most amusing.
