hi to the people who responded to my old discussion about the scam email, well surprise surprise ive had another 2 scam emails today! right with 1 of them, i replied nicely and asked how he got my email address and this is what he sent me back! now what do they get out of sending these, i can't even block the because if i do, it means me only recieving emails from people with my isp address and i have a few friends with hotmail, plus i want to know how to report these, it was again in my inbox with a headline details so that's why i opened it! can anybody help me out here on how to report them and so on! thanks. Dear Friend , How are you and your family, hope fine? thank you so much for your urgent response towards my business proposal. first of all i will want you to be communicating with me through this email address or you call me with my mobile phone number- 0000000000000000 ( ive deleted it out! ) So bellow are the details informations about the business.i want you to go through this details because the success of this business is relied on this detail informations in which i am sending you now,so after you might have gone through it then you have to decide whether you will be able to carry out this business with me or not,then after reading all the explanations given to you here,if there is any question or any thing you want me to clear you on before we go ahead you are free to ask me. The reason why i want you to understand every thing about this business is because an occurance of any mistake could be dangerous , as for me i have already studied this transaction very well before contacting you,then you as my foreign partner i have to take it upon my self to make sure that i bring all this things to your convincing knowledge.,but if you understands the contents of this details then you have to abide to my directions so as not to make any mistake that might leed us to suffer for it. Now listen very good,i have been in this bank for more than 19 years now and i can not boast of any great acheivevement as a banker .but i have a school friend who is in the same position with me in another bank,but my colleague is doing fine more than me, surprisingly he just acquired an estate in the neighbouring republic of Ghana so when i meet him i tried to know the secret of his well doing,being a closs friend of mine right from school he now gave me this idea of which i want us to try now.He ask me if there is no money that has no inheritor after my annual auditing,then i told him that there are,but i don't know how to make it a reality on my side,so he told me that i should look for some body and direct the person to come and claim the money on his name then after we shear the money between both of us. Therefore when i discovered this fund based on the explantions from my collegue i then decided to look for a trustworthy, honest and reliable fellow who will assist me to champion the course of this business magnitude,owing to the fact that i dont have any foriegner as a friend, then i went into seven days prayers asking God to connect me with a reliable counterpart who will not betray me at the end of the business. it was after the prayers then i went to the international directory on the computer and when i saw your email adress and name i was then convinced that this is the right person, my spirit was immediately overwhelmed with joy, though we have not seen each other but through this we have come to be together as business partners..this is not ordinary, it is a divine connection. So after considering this idea,i come to realize that since the constitution of this bank stated that any abandorned fund left in this bank for more than seven years will be transfered to the banks trasurry as an unclaimed fund,and after the fund might have been transfered to the trasuary any body that is comming for the fund will loose it,but if the person succeeds in claiming the fund the condition of the bank will be very critical for such person to cope with.So after i came across this fund since the fund has been about five years now and the managments knows that the real owner of this fund is dead they are now waiting for some body that will come to claim the money as his rightfull next of kin,beside this there are about two different abandorned fund in the bank too,but i choose to concentrate on this one because the other fund is a big money but the owner bears the name of a citizen here,while the other one though a small money but it has been here for more than ten years now and it has gotten to the banks trasury. which means that it belongs now to the federal gorvernment so if i go for that one now it will be very hard for us to claim and besides the account has become dommant,so i decided to contact you in other to see that we don't make any mistake along the line. Now on the proccess of transfering the money,when you are applying for the money you have to use an account which you know that there is no money in it or even if there is money in it let it be just little amount ,then you make sure that you are not well known in that bank where you will submit the account informations to,so that during the era of transfering this fund to your account by my bank then you will give them option of transfer by requesting only fifty thousand dollars to be transfered to you in that account which you submitted to the my bank. Then after transfering the fifty thousand dollars you will now use that money and travel to another country or another bank in your country where you are not well known and open another account but the best will be to travel to another country. pls discover the amount that could be able to come into the account and become suspecious after knowing that now you have to ask the bank to transfer the rest of the money to those accounts in which you purposely opened for the transfer.but if not suspicious then ask the bank to transfer the whole amount there. it is optional. ,Then after the money might have been transfered i will not resign immediatly because the spirit of money is very bad,i will first of all start demmanding for my right of being the manager of audit and accounting department which i know that they will not grant it to me because of the position of the bank gorvernor after there response which i know will be negative then i will start some irrational behavior which i am not used to perhaps, keeping abscence and late to work which will go contrary to our bank code of conduct thereby leading to my sack.i will then come down there for the shearing of the money.The reason why i have to do it that way is because if i ever resign by myself,the management will suspect a foul play and start investigating my office . also i will be mornitoring the business and be feeding you with all naccesary informations needed untill the money is finally transfered into your designated account. when applying to the bank please i will like to personally have all these neccessary informations like your house address, workable phone and fax numbers so that i will be reaching you anytime especially if there is any development concernig this transactions from the bank, note, no matter the condition wether you are rich or poor make sure you must be checking your mail twice everyday and take this business very serious because if there is any change arising i will immediatelly inform you either by phone or through mail, i want you to understand the importance of this transaction to me, i maintain that as long as you follow all this instructions we will successfully get to the rightful end of this business.please after this fund is successfully transfered into your account please do not betray me by running away with it. there are many businesses we have to do together but i just want us to start with this one. please your relability is very important. i will then send you an application form which you will fill and send to tha bank immediately. thanks for co-operation Abdoul Hassane.

Lots of people are using the internet or SMS messaging as their new outlet in modus operandi's such as these, for scams and soliciting for money. For me, I never pay attention to these such syndicating attempts. Being smart enough and more aware is what keeps us away from being a victim to these such criminal acts, thank you for opening it to us!;)

Sorry hun but never, never, never respond to spam or junk emails. The moment you respond they have you hooked in. Never ever give these scammers any details, your phone number, bank details, anything. I would recommend you set up your blocks, and change your passwords too.
