    I was contacted with a message on a chat site, this so called female said she wanted to send me her pic so if I was interested I could contact her and have some so called relationship with her, I gave her an email address I use for junk mail.......

    A few days later I received this message.....

    My father died by car crash on Wendsday night,November 24, 2004 when he was traveling from Jackson Michigan to Ohio (USA) I am constrained to contact you because of the maltreatment I m receiving from my step mother. She planned to take away all my late father's treasure and properties from me since the unexpected death of my beloved Father.Meanwhile I wanted to escape to Europe but she hide away my international passport and other valuable travelling documents.

    Now my problem is that during the time of the deposit, my father had an agreement with the financial institution stating that the money can only be released to me when i am 30yrs of age or alternatively present a trustee.

As you will help me in an investment, and i will like to complete my studies, as i was in my ist year in the university, when my late father died. It is my intention to compensate you with 20% of the total money for your services and the balance shall be my investment capital. This is the reason why I decided to contact you. Please all communications should be through this email address only for confidential purposes.
    As soon as I receive your positive response showing your interest I will put things into action immediately. In the light of the above, I shall appreciate an urgent message indicating your ability and willingness to handle this transaction sincerely. Upon your acceptance to help me I will like to have your full contacts as to write the bank so that they will deal with you as my partner standing on my behalf.

    So I looked her up on Google and several results came up, this one looked the most interesting!

    "Have you ever received an email from a stranger in Nigeria promising you millions of dollars? - You should just delete it, because it is a pack of lies.

    However, some people answers them, and they soon find out that they have to pay some fee in order to get the millions. Then comes the second fee, and the third fee, etc etc. No one has ever received the millions, but many have lost a lot of money, and some have even got killed.

    This so called "Advance Fee Fraud" has become an industry in Nigeria, and the surrounding countries. Another common name is "419 fraud" after Section 419 of the Nigerian Penal code, the section that specifically prohibits this type of crime.

    The fraud is difficult to stop, but we can have some fun, and have the criminals use their time in vain. That is called scambaiting.

    If you are new to this sport, I will recommend you to look at the links-page.

    Have fun,

    Miss Young"

    I thought I would share this with the people on this security forum, its the first time I ever got such an odd email, I guarantee it will be the last though! LOL

    LOL, How can one guarantee it will be the last e-mail ? Recently I got some spam where they knew my name and I can't start pointing fingers yet because besides using the e-mail for mostly security forums, I have used it for
    a couple other shady sites (Guess you could call them shady). Wasn't too pleased. I just replied to the spam and told them to meet me in real life and we could talk about it. Obviously I didn't fill out one of those forms like you posted. Of course with all the databases being hacked today, getting ones personal info doesn't have to be because of user stupidity.

    HMN? by the looks of your user name, "PokerFacehatinspam" it seems as though you have a problem with receiving SPAM?

    I on the other hand never receive spam, and this was the first time I got caught off guard, so I must be doing something right in the 6 years I have used emails!

    Even in my junk mail address I use for forums ect, (The one I gave her/him) I never get spam!

    As for Shady sites, that would all be done threw a Proxy and an email address with a John Doe sort of name and info!
