Nigerian scammer "killed" me!

Here’s an interesting scam email I just received:

So apparently, I died in a car accident with my wife and kid. That’s weird. I don’t remember being married, having a child, or…dying. I do, however, have $18.5 million dollars in a Benin bank. Do you think I should help him get my money repatriated? Should I really give him 50%? I mean, on the one hand, it’s my money. But on the other, I’m dead, so what do I need it for?

I wouldn’t respond. I hate to break it to you, but I suspect that this Nigerian scam is some sort of scam.

<creepy voice>

“But you are dead, Mister Chessic Sense. Take a good, long look at the world you are in. Welcome…to HELL!! MWHAHAHAHA!!!

<creepy voice>

Did you get better?

Whatever you do, stay the hell off Sagbama Express Road. It’s a deathtrap.

Nonsense, it sounds on the up and up to me.

It would sound better in all capital letters.

Your rich bitch! Scam the scammer! Send him the information then keep all the money the joke will so be on him!

I got one similar to this years ago, except that I had died in Saudi Arabia, where I worked as an engineer for an oil company. What I found particularly amusing about it is that I am, as far as I have been able to determine, the only person in the world with my last name, much less my full name.

And with more speeling/grammer mistakes.

Personally I’d be tempted to mess with this guy. “I died? That long ago? When was my funeral? Who showed up? Has it all been paid for?”

Go outside. If you burst into flame in the sunlight, you’re a vampire. If you don’t, you’re a zombie.

And if your loved ones don’t look directly at you or don’t answer you when you talk, you’re Bruce Willis.

Made my morning! Really needed the laugh :smiley:

We’ve told him for weeks he needed a bath, but did he listen? Did he hell. Do you know how hard it is to scream over that distance?

The head of the FBI has got my back!

Not his .gov addy, his personal AOL account!

CMC fnord!
Millionaire, I own a mansion and a yacht.

If you even have to ask if you’re really dead, it’s a scam.

Well I thought it was a scam, but you don’t want to mess with the FBI. You’d better do what they say.

Here in these parts, we only capitalize “His” when we’re talking about Jesus Christ Himself.

You sure you’re not Jesus Christ?

It hurts me to see this sort of blatant racism bandied about on an ostensibly progressive message board.

It’s not like they’re gypsies.

Hmm. Tough crowd tonight.
