dont reply. i received emails saying that before. its a scam. and if you provide him personal information like your account number he might steal money from you. dont believe in those emails. would be good if someone offered 33 million to a stranger. but thats only a scam to make people lose the money they have.

rocker what ajk is saying is an ironic thing. those emails a lot of people received them. scammers dont care about using god's name. what they say is a lie. they want people informations to steal money from them. dont believe in that. ajk was just being ironic because who would offer 33 million to a stranger?

Thanks for sharing this discussion. Oh my goodness, this is completely a fake email that u have received because u were not the only one who is receiving such emails, even i am getting such emails on a regular basis. These all are spams and u should not even give it a read forget about accepting it. Please be cautious in the future and neglect these emails. What say?

Hi rocker, I received such e-mails not so long ago informing me that someone from Africa wants to share her wealth before she will die. They are asking me how they should transfer the money into my account but they also informed me that I should handle the processes for the money transfer. Summing up all the money needed, I need to forward to their account more than hundreds of dollars. Why in the world should I believe them? They are scampers Better not to respond, delete their mails immediately for the security of your personal info and email account.

I get these emails constantly because i post on certain sites where predators seek out unsuspecting people to scam out of their own money by sending you a fake check you cash it then send them back a certain amount of money and low and behold your bank calls you and the check is no good and you are out of money you never had to start with and the scammer has stolen money from you!!!

PLEASE ignore all the 'jokey' responses here! DO NOT reply to such emails. They are designed only to steal your bank details and your money. This kind of email so often describes a bank account in Nigeria which 'only needs your help' to release the funds that it is known as the "Nigerian Scam". The first thing is that YOU DO NOT KNOW THE SENDER, so WHY have they apparently chosen you to 'help' them retrieve the funds? The answer is that these people send out THOUSANDS of identical emails to addresses which they collect in many ways. Have you ever received one of those emails from a friend which you have been asked to forward to all your friends? If you have (and whether you forwarded it or not), you can be certain that a copy of it including your address and hundreds more has landed in the inbox of some person who SELLS email addresses to spammers!

I hope it is not too late as many people new to this kind of scam would fall for it the first instance they see it. This kind of scam appeared in many places and I heard similar scam happened in my neighborhood. They have different story prepared and one of it is asking for a few thousands from you as processing fee or under table money to the police. Do not reply the mail in any way.
