According to emails that I received only today, not including any other day, I have inherited/earned/been given gratis, £372,000,000. My Nigerian uncle was the most generous, having sold his African diamond mine, he decided to give me £250m, and the others have come from various medical centres around the world for my continued support into break-through medicines and procedures. All I have to do this evening is provide my account details to each email received to receive this cash.

So, place your orders, but leave some for me please. Hopefully you will all have your gifts by the end of the month.

Daz,

That's a better offer than mine. I think you should accept without delay!

I'm due for a modest tax rebate and have a mountain load of parcels awaiting collection at various depots around the world - maybe a kind benefactor has bequeathed me a lifetime's supply of modelling goods!

Ha ha I get emails from paypal, natwest, Barclays etc etc saying my online account suspended and I am to log in to my account with the link they provide !

As if lol they start with dear valued customer (not that valued they can't put my name on the email) !

also the emails all look the same sort of format and have spelling mistakes.

I always appreciate the phone calls telling me that my computer has a problem. They are so helpful and even offer fix all the errors if I will pass control to them.

I would tell you how I normally thank these helpful people but the moderators seem to think that such thanks a re not helpful

That's mighty kind of you. Since my offer of 2.67 million USD didn't turn up I had to cancel the 1/4 scale Spitty, MZ 18, and the Moki radial for the big Jug. Can't wait!!

Well, you started it !

I had a nice email from Barclays the other day telling me there was some problem with my account. Problem? I'll say there's a problem with it - I closed it over thirty years ago!

And as for the nice man from Microsoft... shame about his strong accent as I had to get him to repeat everything two or three times - even if I did understand him perfectly the first time. I also accidentally neglected to mention for quite a while that the PC I ws pretending to let him help me with was running Linux. He was rather rude when I mentioned that and hung up! Next time I might pretend to have a Mac.

Come on you guys, so far all I'm buying is a 1/4 scale Spitty, an MZ 18???, and a Moki radial for a big Jug, and a chicken curry fried rice (need the menu number please John) Oh, and a cuttlefish and a mirror (but seeing as I have got both spare in the bird room, that's not really a gift)

How do these scammers get my email address? I never tick or uncheck the "Can we / we will send your email details to Uncle Motumba in Nigeria, and anyone else who wants to access your money illegally ", and only use reputable online outlets. I don't do online gaming (actually I apparently won a huge amount a little while ago) so how do they get it? I guess that even reputable people must be selling them on to anyone.

Well if you are offering I'll have one of these

As far as getting your e-mail, they've probably managed to get it from somebody elses account which they have hacked.

A few years back the company I worked for at the time had an office in Nigeria, every now and again when we phoned the manager (an expat) we'd get somebody telling us he's been in an accident and we needed to send money urgently, they were intercepting the phone calls.

No worries Frank. I guess you want the one with airbrakes and custom canopy etc? Would you like one for every day of the week in 7 different colours?

I've also had the "We're stuck in "wherever" and lost our travellers cheques, would you be kind to send us money so we can get home? We promise to pay you back with interest as soon as we're back home". Well, seeing as you are promising to pay back, and with interest, of course I'll help" frown

I promise I will buy every forumite a chinese meal of their choice.Simply because the cheque will come from a Nigerian chinese oppressed person who is obviously so depressed after her family losses.Surely ,you must have a heart for the so poor people struggling as to buy happiness

Just a beer for me BD than we can celerbrate your gid fortuneosity.

By the way when the man from Windows Security Centre phones and says your PC is sending messages reporting a fault/virus, try telling him you have several machines but you will be able to identify which one it is if he gives you the MAC address named in the report..... you can play the game from there for as long as he's gullible, I've managed 28 minutes so far. devilteeth 2
