Are You Getting Such Spam Mails?

In the past one week i have received around 7-8 spam mails regarding winning a lottery or someone asking me to help getting late father's bank account money and take share... etc etc. I simply think that these mails are being sent by organised people who cheat people having their agents in different part of the world. Let me show you some of these mails....

This is from some Eric Kabore... who claims to be the head of file department of Bank Of Africa and luring me to pay whooping 40% of the amount.

Compliments of the Season

Forgive my indignation if this message comes to you as a surprise and may offend
your personality for contacting you without your prior consent and writing through
this channel. I got your contact from the professional data base found in the
chambers of commerce.

When I was searching for a foreign reliable partner. I assured of your capability
and reliability to champion this business opportunity.

After serious of prayers/fasting. I was divinely directed to contact you among
other names found in the data base chambers of commerce search. I believe that
almighty has a way of helping who is in need.

I am (MR. ERIC KABORE.) the Head of file Department in Bank of Africa (B.O.A).

In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of $12.5 million U.S.A dollars
(Twelve million Five hundred thousand U.S.A dollars). In an account that belongs
to one of our foreign customer who died along with his entire family MR.CHRISTAIN
EICH Of Australia who died together with his entire family in a plane crash on the
July 2000.

Since I got information about his death, I have been expecting his next of kin to
come over and claim his money because bank cannot release it unless somebody
applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our
banking guidelines, but unfortunately I learnt that all his supposed next of kin
or relation died along side with him at the plane crash leaving nobody behind for
the claim.

It is therefore upon this discovery that I decided to make this business proposal
to you and release the money to you as the next of kin or relation to the deceased
for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and I donĂ¢€™t
want this money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill.

The Banking law and guideline here stipulates that if such money remained
unclaimed after some years, the money will be transferred into the Bank treasury
as unclaimed fund. The request of foreigner as next of kin in this business is
occasioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner, and a Burkina be cannot
stand as next of kin to a foreigner.

I agree that 40% of this money will be for you as foreign partner and 60% would
be for me. There after I will visit your country for disbursement according to the
percentages indicated.

Therefore to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to you as arranged, you
must apply first to the bank as relations or next of kin of the deceased
indicating your bank name, your bank account number, your private telephone and
fax number for easy and effective communication and location where the money will
be remitted.

Upon receipt of your reply, I will send you fax or email the text of the
application I will not fail to bring to your notice that this transaction is hitch
free and that you should not entertain any atom of fear as all required
arrangements have been mad for the transfer.

Yours faithfully,

You can easil understandnd that these are spam mails but there are many who could fall in the trap of these spammers who can then send you some agent and then will ask you to deposit some money.... Mr, Eric is so clever that he is also asking bank account details..

I will suggest all bloggers to keep away from these luring mails as in India there has been some cases which i read in news paper who took their money.. and later killed them the recent one who was killed which i can recall was in New Delhi who paid around one lacs of rupees and was later killed by his associate in a hotel.

It is always better not to disclose your email address in a blog or forums as they can be searched by search engines. You can also check by googling your email address which you might have left somewhere while leaving comments or something. Will write a post on how to combat such spammers...
