Patti (baconater) (goldengreene) | 61757 comments Just checked my email junk folder and found this. Looks legit.

I’m diplomat williams smart ; I have been trying to reach you on your
telephone about an hour now just to inform you about my successful
arrival in John F.Kennedy International Airport with your two boxes of
consignment worth $9.5 nine Million Five Hundred Thousand Dollars
which I have been instructed by (ECOWAS) to delivered to you.

The Airport authority demanded for all the legal back up papers to
prove to them that the fund is no way related with drug nor fraud
money, I have presented the papers I handed to them and they are very
much pleased with the paper’s I presented but the only thing that is
still keeping me here is the airport delivery Tag which is not placed
on the boxes, one of the Airport Authority has advise that we get the
delivery tag so that I can exit the airport immediately and make my
delivery successful.

I try to reason with them and they stated the delivery tag will cost
us just $350.00 Dollars only to get the two tag placed on the boxes as
that tag will enable me get to your house successfully without any
interference,they scanned the boxes and found out that the fund is 100
% spend able and accepted by any bank in the whole world.

Please try and reach me with by text massages as I cannot answer my
call at the moment number (586) 980-6200 I can not afford to spend more
time here due to other delivery I have to take care of in Bangkok.
Here are the papers backing the funds together with my ID CARD as I
can accompany you to your bank were you will deposit the fund
successfully with these papers. I have more vital paper with me but
I can only present you the hard copy when I reach your house as that
it’s the diplomatic rules, such as authorization to deliver.

You can direct the tag fee to our Head Office as they will get it here
for you and they are entitled to receive and make any payment to
foreign countries authority.


Diplomat williams smart.

Kath Middleton | 25096 comments It's a bleddy long way from John Kennedy Airport to your house!

Patti (baconater) (goldengreene) | 61757 comments Yeah, can't face another long flight at the moment.

Not even for 9.5 million, I'm afraid.

Anna Faversham (annafaversham) | 1749 comments You could fly first class. Stay at the Waldorf Astoria and have it delivered there.

Or, just thank him for the laugh. Or enjoy spending your imaginary millions as you fall asleep.

Patti (baconater) (goldengreene) | 61757 comments I'd still have to face the motorway. Hmmm, unless I flew out of cardiff.

Now there's a thought...

Anna Faversham (annafaversham) | 1749 comments Motorway? Nah. Cancel the trip.

Gingerlily - The Full Wild | 36808 comments You could probably charter a private jet.

Anna Faversham (annafaversham) | 1749 comments We owe so much to those who taught English to these scammers. They have ensured we can usually spot them in the first sentence.

I'm told they do it deliberately, so those who would be able to see through the scam are put off straight away, and those who don't notice it are more likely the people who will be taken in.

Elizabeth White | 2067 comments Eternal poverty to all scummers...

Geoff (G. Robbins) (merda constat variat altitudo) (snibborg) | 9052 comments The problem is the lawyer's English is pretty poor anyway, if the one that did the conveyancing on our flat was any guide. The example I gave above from a scammer was much better written.
