Better Scammer

I get at least 6 scam emails a day. The offers or claims are always silly and the grammar worse than poor. This one isn't bad. Still didn't fool me though




Head Office
International Monetary Fund
700 19th Street,
N.W.
, Washington
, D.C 20431
E-Mail: [email protected]



Attn:



First of all IMF apologizes for passing this message through to you in this manner; we wanted to ensure that the identity of the recipient is properly scrutinized. This is not a hoax or scam as you might think it is. Your undivided attention is highly needed to execute a charity project before the end of the March 2010.



Natwest Bank will be in charge of initiating transfer/delivery of your fund ($10.000.000.00usd) for charity work when your file has been forwarded to their office. You are further advised to contact immediately the office of Bernise Charity Foundation requesting that they forward your payment file to Natwest Bank immediately with the below information's accordingly:

Name: Mr. Donald Miller (Co-founder)
Office Address: 11 El Shams Bldgs., 8th District Nasr City
E-mail: [email protected]
Tel: (+2) 0116618850




IMF is monitoring the services of Natwest Bank with due process of law and order as the paying bank of your inheritance; we assure you that this inheritance awarded to you is free from any irregularities and it is completely risk free. The above fund was allocated to you after a MATRIX RESEARCH TEAM (MRT) was hired by Bernise Charity Foundation after the passing away of Mr. Michael Harson the founder of Bernise Charity Foundation which he left for his wife Dr. Mrs. Bernise Harson. She is now diagnosed of having Cancer of the lungs and has limited time left to be with her husband in Heaven. Kindly contact the foundation immediately requesting that they give urgent attention to your payment file and proceed with transfer.



MATRIX RESEARCH TEAM (MRT) will be visiting you in your country with a bank representative attached to have further discussions with you after transfer/delivery of your fund. We believe your good heart can continue the project for the World to see and benefit from.



Thank you very much for anticipated Co-operation and God bless.

Best regards

Re: Better Scammer

The office address of "11 El Shams Bldgs" would be your first tip-off.

I dunno, sounds legit to me.

I am a bit concerned about the part where the dutiful wife "has limited time left to be with her husband in Heaven." Does that mean that she gets to see him briefly, then has to go somewhere else? And after the millions in charity work that they did? That would suck more than the cancer . . .

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

That just means he has a brief stop in Heaven before he goes to hell.

just ask any wife, they will all tell you their husbands will "go to hell..."

If you aren't good for anything else, you can always serve as a bad example.

And many husbands will tell you that they're already there . . .
