I receive a lot of SPAM in my email. Some of it is fairly entertaining. Here his one I got today:
ECONOMIC AND FINANCIAL CRIME COMMISSION (EFCC)
#15 AWOLOWO ROAD,
IKOYI, LAGOS. NIGERIA
Motto:Eagle Eye Of The Law.
We are writing to know if it is true that you are DEAD? Because we received a
notification from one Mr.Graham Simon Brad of United Kingdom stating that you
are DEAD and you gave him the right to claim your compensation funds which you
have with us.He also stated you died in a Train Crash in India and he has been
calling our office regarding this issue, but we cannot proceed with him until
we confirm this by not hearing from you after 7days.We would like you to know
that this is the second time we are notifying you about your compensation fund
but we do not want to assume until after this final notice because, we have
with us his international passport which he sent to us and also his bank account
details where he wants the money transferred into.
Be advised that we have made all arrangements for you to receive and confirm your
funds without any stress and delay.All we want to know now is whether you are
dead or still alive because Mr.Graham Simon Brad message came as a shock to us and
we can not just proceed with him until we confirm if what he said is real and if
it happens that we do not hear from you in 7days then we say: MAY YOUR SOUL REST
IN PERFECT PEACE.
May the peace of the Lord be with you wherever you may be now.
... and my response:
Mr. Graham is correct. I was crushed beneath the wreckage in that train crash in
what was a blessedly quick death. I have been communicating with him by Ouija
board to make arrangements for him to receive these funds to help arrange for
special vacations to expose Goth kids to sunlight and upbeat music.
Please cooperate with him in this matter in every way. Should you need to contact
me further, please arrange a séance and I will endeavor to answer any questions you
