I can NOT believe that people are still sending this around. It came with about 200 e-mail addresses. Don't these people catch on?


Ladies and Gentlemen:

This is not hoax. Please scroll down.



Ok guys, my lawyer's paralegal sent this one to me and if it doesn't work, they are aware that we all will be coming to visit them for a law suit for false advertisement!J


THIS TOOK TWO PAGES OF THE TUESDAYS USA TODAY - IT IS FOR REAL

To all of my friends, I do not usually forward messages, but this is from my friend Pearl Sandborn and she really is an attorney.


If she says that this will work - It will work. After all, What have you got to lose?






I'm an attorney, And I know the law. This thing is for real. Rest assured AOL and Intel will follow through with their promises for fear of facing a multimillion-dollar class action suit similar to the one filed by Pepsi Co against General Electric not too long ago.

Dear Friends: Please do not take this for a junk letter. Bill Gates sharing his fortune.. If you ignore this, You will repent later.
Microsoft and AOL are now the largest Internet companies and in an effort to make sure that Internet Explorer remains the most widely used program, Microsoft and AOL are running an e-mail beta test.

When you forward this e-mail to friends, Microsoft can and will track it (If you are a Microsoft Windows user) For a two weeks time period.

For every person that you forward this e-mail to, Microsoft will pay you $245.00 For every person that you sent it to that forwards it on, Microsoft will pay you $243.00 and for every third person that receives it, You will be paid $241.00. Within two weeks, Microsoft will contact
you for your address and then send you a check.

Regards.

Charles S Bailey General Manager Field Operations

1-800-842-2332 Ext..1085 or 904-1085 or RNX 292-1085

Thought this was a scam myself, But two weeks after receiving this e-mail and forwarding it on.
Microsoft contacted me for my address and within days, I received a check for $24,800.00.
You need to respond before the beta testing is over. If anyone can afford this, Bill Gates is the man.

It's all marketing expense to him. Please forward this to as many people as possible. You are bound to get at least $10,000.00

We're not going to help them out with their e-mail beta test without getting a little something for our time.

My brother's girlfriend got in on this a few months ago When I went to visit him for the Baylor/UT game, she showed me her check. It was for the sum of $4, 324.44 and was stamped 'Paid In Full'.
I don't post things because I believe that they are the absolute truth. I post them because I believe that they should be considered.

just seems ironic, I got this:



I am Mrs. Amanda Johnson, A widow to Late Mr.Clark Johnson, I am
73years old, and I am now a new Christian convert, suffering from long
time, cancer of the ear. From all indications my condition is really
deteriorating and it's quite obvious that I won't live long according
to my doctors.

This is because my cancer stage has gotten to a very bad stage. My
late husband was killed during the U.S raid, against terrorism in
Afghanistan when he traveled to Afghanistan to monitor a Hospital/a
Humanitarian Found at (HHF) he was setting up for the benefit of the
Afghan masses as of then; whose majority and 99 percent of them are
Muslims/ Islamic scholars and loyalists. During the period of our
marriage we couldn’t produce any child. My late husband was very
wealthy and after his death, I inherited all his businesses and
wealth, and when I noticed that my condition is not improving rather
it gets worsen by the day I decided to divide part of this wealth, to
contribute to Charity and the development of the churches in Africa,
America , Asia and Europe .

I selected you after visiting the internet and I prayed over it. I am
willing to donate the fund to you for charity, the less privileged,
churches, orphanages and widows, Propagating the word of God and to
ensure that the house of God is maintained.
I took this decision upon myself because I don't have any child that
will inherit this money and my husband relatives are not Christians
and I don't want my husband's hard earned money to be misused by
unbelievers. Because I have come to find out that wealth acquisition
without Christ is vanity upon vanity.

Please I want you to note that this fund is deposited with Bank for
security purpose.And upon my instruction, you will file in an
application for the transfer of the fund in your name with the Bank.
May the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the
fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you and your family.

Await Your Urgent Reply via this e-mail
address:(mrs.amanda001@gmail.com) ,any delay in your reply will give
me room in sourcing for a church, another person or Christian
individual for this same purpose.
Yours in Christ.
Mrs. Amanda Johnson
Love & Prayers

Here's one I just got today, they are checking to see if I'm DEAD! :)


Re: Payment Notification:

We are writhing to know if it's true that you are DEAD? Because we received a notification from one MR. GERSHON SHAPIRO of USA stating that you are DEAD and that you have giving him the right to claim your funds. He stated you died on a CAR accident. He has been calling us regarding this issue, but we cannot proceed with him until we confirm this by not hearing from you after 7days. Be advised that we have made all arrangements for you to receive and confirm your funds without anymore stress, and without any further delays.

All we need to confirm now is your been DEAD Or still Alive. Because this MAN'S message brought shock to our minds. And we just can't proceed with him until we confirm if this is a reality OR not But if it happened we did not hear from you after 7days, then we say: MAY YOUR SOUL REST IN PERFECT PEACE"

YOUR JOY AND SUCCESS REMAINS OUR GOAL.

May the peace of the Lord be with you wherever you may be now.
Your Faitfully,
Mrs.Farida Waziri

My younger brother got ripped off $6000 by some Nigerian scammer scumbag about 5 years ago. We don't talk about it anymore. Afterwards, our mom would waste away hours and months messing around with those bastards via computer, reeling them in like tuna. She was having just way too much fun at it.

Besides the usual emails which always go into my spam, the only time I've ever been accosted by any of them was when I was on match (dot) com about 6 years ago. A dead giveaway is their picture. They are really stupid about it too. They steal pics from modeling agencies. One guy (who looked like a Calvin Klein commercial) told me he was a wealthy executive living in NYC, but that he was born and raised in Australia, yet he didn't even know where the freaking Sydney Opera House was??? Here's a clue: It's in Sydney. Duh-LOSER!! Another giveaway is that their parents are always deceased.

Monkeypoo, I remember your brother's story.
Maybe you'd be willing to link to it, as a warning to others?
Really shocking.

I know an elderly couple, and the husband has fallen for these scams so badly that it is horrifying.
The phone rings almost nonstop.
When I talk to him, his thinking is that it is like gambling and one of the scams will be real, and he will win.

It's scary delusional thinking just like gamblers fall into.
His wife is in poor health and I fear the toll this is taking on her.

My friend, who takes her to the doctors most of the time, just straightened out his mother getting scammed, and it looks like $13,000 out of his pocket so far.
I don't know how much the total loss has been.
I think it was local scammers mostly, or at least partially.
I'm unsure if it started online.
Really devastating for him too, at this point.

A car forum I'm on routinely spots car scams for people, and exposes them.
Ask an expert.
Most of the time, they actually know the history of the car and can track it, if there is an actual car involved.
In the worst scams, the car is fictional, but they can track the stolen photo.
They have had a lot of these pulled off ebay.

WARNING
USE EBAY AT YOUR OWN RISK AS LONG AS THEY HAVE SECRET BIDDING
IT GUARANTEES SCAMS

Never use sale prices on ebay as a guide, while this fraudulent practice is allowed.

I won't bother to retype it, but my mother got a scam letter via SNAIL MAIL. I was impressed by the old school format. I guess they assumed my mom was a man because in the phone book she's listed by first initial and last name.

So it was a letter addressed to "H (lastname)", explaining how my mom's name was found in a dating magazine and that Mary Johnson from Ghana with her good Christian values and Google Translator broken English is looking for a good husband. It goes on for a few paragraphs about her hobbies and such.

Best part: it included two photos of "Mary" wearing tons of makeup and posing outside in some rather sheer clothing (on REAL photo paper too!)

We keep it around for whenever we need a good laugh.

Good Day!

My name is Mrs Barbara Manenga a dying woman who has decided to donate what I have to charity through any thoughtful and selfless someone, I got your information while browsing through the internet, although I am not comfortable using this medium owing to the unsolicited emails everywhere but someone has to be used to save this transaction. So, I honestly crave your indulgence to digest and do what I have to say, please.

I am a woman who was diagnosed for cancer about 2 years ago, after the death of my husband who had left me everything he worked for. I have decided to donate from what I have inherited from him for charity through you since I cannot do it all by myself considering my condition.

I have WILLED the sum of US$7,500,000 to you for the less privileged rather than allow my greedy relatives to use my husband's hard earned funds inappropriately.

I will be going for an operation tomorrow morning and at the moment I cannot take any telephone calls, however, I have adjusted my WILL and my Executor is aware. Please, you and he should arrange the transfer of the funds from my Bank to your humble self, wherever you are. Please contact him with his private E-mail:
--------------------------------------------------
BARRISTER JEFFERY EDWARD
E-mail: legal.integrity@auto.lt
--------------------------------------------------
With your full names, phone/fax numbers and or your contact address and tell him you are the one that I have WILLED the sum of $7,500,000 to, for specific and good work. I will appreciate your utmost confidentiality in this matter until the task is accomplished as I do not want anything that will jeopardize my last wish. I will try and be in contact with you at any given opportunity. I wish you all the best and, please use the funds well and always extend the good work to others.

Regards,
Mrs. Barbara Manenga
Noted Dr Phil Evans is my personal doctor and I am sending you this mail through his email.

And I will like you to know that 20% shall be set aside for your assistance and 10% for any expenses incurred. Please I want this correspondence to remain confidential.

The consignment that contains the cash can come to you through a diplomatic immunity. As soon as you receive this proposal, get back to me then both of us can discuss the details, for your better understanding. An I will like for you to send me your full details so I can contact you immediately like your fax, phone number, a copy of your passport and your full address. so i can be able to send you the documents for you to go through for your better understanding.reply with this email (ngoyphilip@sify.com)

Here's one you shouldn't click on if it comes into your inbox. Just got it today. IT IS NOT FROM ADOBE, those updated are usually downloaded onto your computer automatically. DO NOT CLICK ON ANY LINKS IN THIS EMAIL IF YOU GET IT.

I placed spaces between the link here so it wasn't live, but so you can still see what it is to look out for. Might be just an advertisement, might be a virus, either way, I don't recommend clicking on it.
