From John Robert

Dear one,

I am John Robert and I inherited an important sum of money from my late father who was killed by the rebels in northern part of the country in a recent crisis in Cote d\'Ivoire in 2004. I wish to request for your assistance in transfering and investing this money in a lucrative venture under your directives and guidiance in your country.

I want you to assist me for the transfer of this sum of Three
million, Eight hundredand fifty thousand United State Dollars.($3.850,000)to your account designate hence I will give you the contact of the bank where the money is so that you can contact them immediately and discuss with them since I do not know much about financial issues.

I will give you some resonable percentage from the total sum for your assistance while I pray that you do not betray me at last. Please it is important you contact me immediately for more clarifications on the next step hence it is my wish to relocate to your country as soon as this transaction is concluded.

Awaiting your immediate response via this email address :

God bless you.

John Robert.

Sorry, you aren't the first.

MAAC failed to protect everyone's email address from a scrape (i.e. they posted all the officer's email addresses).

That's one reason why I have my spam fileters on and check the e-mail before I download it off of my ISP.

3.850 Million? They are getting cheap these days! The last Nigerian spam that I looked at was for $20 million.

A lot of websites are now doing the e-mail contact behind the scenes -- you click on the "mail to" link and up pops a web-page where you fill in the contact information, subject and message, then press SEND.

Actual e-mail address is hidden behind the scenes by a two-step mail process -- e-mail that you filled in on the web-page goes into a repository with the addressee being a marker (eg, SE_ZoneDirector would be my zone director's "bucket"), and the e-mail sender would then regularly scrape the buckets and do the actual mailing.

Something like this is really easy to implement.
