    got this email today, what kind of scam do you think this is?

    Dear Steven,

    I am Mr. Abii Debe, staff of Citco Trust & Finance House Accra Ghana,I am
    the Credit management and recovery manager with the Company office in Ghana
    before I was transfered to our head office here in Lagos Nigeria, Late
    Engineer Wilson Steven was my personal Client before he died in an accident,
    he was a contractor with Shell Development Company and he is from your
    Country.

    On the 21st of April 2002, Engr. Wilson, his wife and their two children
    were involved in a car accident along Platue express road and all occupants
    of the vehicle unfortunately lost their lives. Before the time of his
    death, he had a deposit of $14.5Million which he decleared as family
    treasure in the Finance House Accra office where I was working then, which
    is only I and his lawyer knows the true content, Unfortunately, till this
    moment no person has come as his relation for his chattels with us. I
    humbly request your attention to this matter so that I can present you as
    his next of kin and beneficiary to his chattels. It is not a very difficult
    thing to do and it will not take time.

    All I will need is to put your name and particulars as his next of kin to
    in our computer database and we file in an application for the release of
    the fund. It does not necessarilly mean that you must be in Ghana to
    conclude the deal, we may request that the money be sent to Europe for your
    collection.

    Please contact me as quickly as possible through this email address
    (a_debe032@yahoo.com) treat this matter as very important and confidential.

    When I hear from you ,we shall discuss the terms of sharing of the money
    after the claim.Contact me now so that I can deligate the Attorney who is
    also going to be part of the deal.I await your urgent response.

    Best regards,

    Mr Abii Debe

    [Captain Obvious] I was being sarcastic [/Captain Obvious].

    Lol, I get those things all the time and have for the last couple years. All scams, I usually laugh at their bad spelling/English and then delete them.

    Any number of things from absolutely nothing to abducting you.

    There have been cases of severe stupidity where the victim actually agrees to fly to europe to meet their supposed benefactor, and they are abducted and crap.

    Blah blah blah.. when the scam is complete, they have ALL of your information (because you were the next of kin, and you had to proove it) Then they get your account info to deposit your share of the wealth. Well, they don't deposit. They take whatever you might have had.

    And they can also steal your identity.. Take out multiple lines of credit in your name until you are used up.


    Email him back from an anonymous account from the library or something. Tell him that $14 million is shitty, and you just got a similar offer from another guy for $17.5 million. And you will be going with that guy because you want to buy one metric ton of viagra from another online source of yours.

    i guess they didnt do backgound. my parents think of me as a burden, therefore would not pay and i have exactly $7.65 in my two bank accounts. i guess they could get lines of credit, but when the purchases happen in africa and im here without a passport, visa, or anything that would allow me to enter another country, i dont think it would hold up. but then again, wtf do i know.

    Of course they don't check you out. They are just fishing for suckers. You didn't think they targetted you specifically did you?
