Prince fobi

| Internet | 5 Comments

This afternoon I felt honored to receive the following amazing one-of-a-kind email from a fine individual:

"I am prince fobi otumfor Opokuwari the 4th son of my father, His Royal Highness late Nana Otumfor opokuwari 11 of kokofo in Ashanti confirm by oyoko clan here in Ghana. I am 23 years, I have confidence in you that made me to reveal this deal to you. Because i got your information from yahoo search on reliable gold dealers..."

This email goes on for another few paragraphs, but I will spare you the nausea of having to read the rest.

Is this for real? Does the originator of this fine email actually believe I will read this and take him seriously? Are there actual takers somewhere out there that make sending these types of emails worthwhile? Who could be sucker enough to fall for this nonsense? Makes me wonder. To be honest, I do not know why I am even taking the time to dedicate a whole blog entry to this.

I receive about fifty plus spam emails like this every day. I find this aggravating, an invasion of privacy, and I think these folks should be put away for good.

Be patient and the meek shall inherit the Internet, I hope.

I got this one a while back. I love how people just assume that everyone is stupid. The thing is that someone must reply to these things because they keep sending them out.

Here is the last one I got:

CONFIDENTIAL BUSINESS PROPOSAL
You may be surprised to receive this letter from me since you do not know me personally. The purpose of my introduction is that I am Johnson Mowete the first son of Frank Mowete ,a farmer in Zimbabwe who was recently murdered in the land dispute in my country. I got your contact through network online hence decided to write you.
Before the death of my father, he had taken me to Johannesburg to deposit the sum of US8.5 million (Eight million, Five Hundred thousand United States dollars), in one of the private security company, as he foresaw the looming danger in Zimbabwe this money was deposited in a box as gem stones to avoid much demurrage from security company. This amount was meant for the purchase of new machines and chemicals for the Farms and establishment of new farms in Swaziland.

How much money should I send him? ;-)

My wife works at a credit union and one of her regular customers took out his and his wife's savings a couple months back. A few weeks ago she found out that they had sent all that money to someone playing the same scam Pat mentioned. Very, very sad. And then two days later I found the same scam-email in my inbox!

Bizarre. How can people be so gullible?

Funny...many of these emails with stories of monies from all parts of the world, all say to call the following phone #: 31-641-229-662.

Hmmmm....
