    Default This is completely legitimate

    These emails amuse me.

    Random email I got:
    Greetings

    I am Mr.Wellington.I have been waiting for you since to contact me for your Confirmable Bank Draft of £800.000.00 pounds,but I did not hear from you since that time.I did this due to the large amount my father collected when he was doing fraud on the internetbefore he died.

    But now I am a man of God and I needed to send this evil money back.Then I went and deposited the Confirmable Bank Draft with FedEx Delivery Uk,I travelled out of the country for a 3Months Course and I will not come back till end of march.

    What you have to do now is to contact the FedEx Delivery UK as soon as possible to know when they will deliver your package to you because of the expiring date. For your information, I have paid for the delivering Charge, Insurance premium and Clearance Certificate Fee of the Cheque showing that it is not a Drug Money or meant to sponsor Terrorist attack in your Country.

    The only money you will send to the FedEx Delivery to deliver your Draft direct to your postal Address in your country is (£300.00 pounds) Only being Security Keeping Fee of the Delivery Company so far.Again, don't be deceived by anybody to pay any other money except £300.00 pounds.I would have paid that but they said no because they don't know when you will contact them and in case of demurrage.You have to contact the FedEx Delivery UK now for the delivery of your Draft with this information below;

    Contact Person:Mr.Peterson Moore
    E-mail Address:fedexdliverycompany@googlemail.com
    Telephone:+447011139092

    Finally, make sure that you reconfirm your Postal address() and Direct telephone number to them again to avoid any mistake on the Delivery and ask them to give you the tracking number to enable you track your package over there and know when it will get to your address.

    Let me repeat again, try to contact them as soon as you receive this mail to avoid any further delay and remember to pay them their Security Keeping fee of £300.00 pounds for their immediate action.
    You should also let me know through email as soon as you receive your Draft.

    Kindly Note and Tell them the date I sent you the mail.
    My E-mail is wellington1234@hotmail.com.But if you mail
    me I will be on vacation.

    Yours Faithfully,
    Mr Wellington
    GOOD DAY!!!

    Well my reply to the email was -

    I'm all about this. I'd love to help in any way I can. Money is not a factor for me. I have as much as you need for your cause.

    God speed,

    Hahah. In case of demurrage.

    That should be used more often in casual conversation.
    No offense.

    Be careful.

    Rarely are you dealing with a single individual. Often, these emails are contrived by a network of immoral assclowns.

    Don't take it too far.

    ^I know... I was being sarcastic with the title of my thread, and just screwing with them in my reply.

    I want to just keep telling them I want to help them but never actually doing it, see how far I can take this. lol

    I need a hobby.

    Beat, there's an entire website done by a guy who corresponded at length with people like this, even sent photos and assumed alternate personas as rich business developers and stuff like that. It was really hilarious reading some of the email back and forth, I wish I could remember what the link was or even how I heard about it so I could check that.
