I've gotten one really strange email and I really don't know what it's about, I suspect it's just part of my daily spam, though it didn't get filtered out, since it's from an address which ends with @tiscali.it

Dear Friend,

My name is Mr Segun Agbaje, the Deputy Managing Director of COMMERICAL BANK OF AFRICA. I am writing in respect of a foreign customer of my bank with account number 14-255-2004/utb/t who perished in a plane crash Korean Air Flight 801]with the whole passengers aboard on August6,1997.

Since the demise of this our customer,I personally has watched with

keen interest to see the next of kin but all has proved abortive as no

one has come to claim his funds of twenty eight million five hundred

thousand united states dollars which has been with my branch for a very

long time.

On this note, I decided to seek for whom his name shall be used as the

next of kin as no one has come up to be the next of kin. And the

banking ethics here does not allow such money to stay more than Six

years,because money will be recalled to the bank treasury as unclaimed

after this period.Iwill give you 25% of the total.

Upon the receipt of your response, I will send you by fax or e-mail the

application, bank's fax number and the next step to take. I will not

fail to bring to your notice that this business is hitch free and that

you should not entertain any fear as all modalities for fund transfer

can be finalizedwithin five banking days, after you apply to the bank

as a relation to the deceased.

When you receive this letter. Kindly send me an e-mail signifying your

decision Including your private Tel/Fax numbers for quick

communication.

Respectfully submitted,

Mr Segun Agbaje
Has anyone here ever gotten an email like this and do you think it will be wise to respond to this one? oO

Not wise to respond, if you do they will know it's a live e-mail address and will pass it on to send more spam/scam letters. So trash it and say what StrongBad would say: DELETED!

Well you could always respond, the worst that can happen would be a spammed inbox, but generally those kinda e-mails are hoaxes. Or as homestar would say: BALETED!

It's spam. ;) They want your telephone, e mail and fax number so they can make sure your e mail exists, sell your phone number, e mail and fax to spammers so they can spam you.

Hmm, so it's just as I suspected. Well I just happened to have found exactly the same message from [email protected] which did end up being filtered out. Well let's delete this crap:

Spam should be canned :p

I can't believe you never heard about the Nigerian bank scam ? Seems like your mail is just a variant of it.

They never get tired of trying :p
