    Michael, I’ve seen (yes actually seen) people transfering tens of thousands of dollars to some account in the US (yes! in the US) hoping to recieve millions.

    I have pursuaded some not to send as I’m well aware of such spammers and most agreed not do, but i’ve seen couple of people actually doing that.

    In the end it seemed so funny but at the same time dramatic as you couldn’t do something.

    This guys play on unawareness of many many people and I think mass media (TV, radio etc) available to newbie internet users should talk more about this kind of crimes.

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    Please accept my sincere apologizes if my email does not meet your business or personal ethics. I am Mrs. Fatima Shumejda, I am 75 years old, a widow to late Mr.John Shumejda who was the President of Agricultural Equipment Giant AGCO Corp and also a contractor to Petronas oil and gas Malaysia, who passed away on the 4th of January 2002 in a Plane Crash in Birmingham . See the website below:- http://edition.cnn.com/2002/ WORLD/europe/01/04/england. plane/

    Am presently suffering from long time breast Cancer.

    From all indications my conditions is really deteriorating and it is quite obvious that I wouldn’t live for more than four months according to my doctors medical analysis as the cancer stage has gotten to a very critical stage that no hope for me to be a living person again, my late husband who was the President of Agricultural Equipment Giant AGCO Corp and also a contractor to Petronas oil and gas Malaysia, has a Deposit Certificate of (GBP 8,000,000) Eight Million British Pounds, with a Bank in Malaysia.

    He died in a plane crash and during the period of our marriage we could not bear any child. My late husband was very wealthy and after his death, I inherited all his business and wealth.

    After the doctors medical analysis, I decided to divide part of this wealth to contribute to Asia / Africa /American/Europe/Etc especially to create solution to problem of less privileged ones and orphanage homes. I selected you after visiting the websites, I prayed and fast for three weeks over it.

    Please I want to transfer this money into your account before is late and my bank will use the fund without doing according to my wish, Note that this fund is in the financial institution and upon my instruction; I will file in an application for the transfer of the money into your account for the said purpose and you will be haven 40% for the work done while 60% will be for the less privileged and the orphanage homes.

    Lastly, I honestly pray that this money when transferred will be used for the said purpose even though I am late then, because I have come to find out that wealth acquisition without happiness is vanity and I made the promise to God that the fund will be use to help the poor. Do let me know if you can able to handle this money and use it for the said purpose so that I will instruct the bank,

    I wait urgently for your reply.

    Allah blessing.

    This does not come from a website. This comes from one of those scam artists. This one goes under a yahoo account. rihannakelvin@yahoo.com – do not fall for this scammer…!!! Its a trap…!!!! This is another 419 scam from Nigeria. who claims to have inherited $2.5 million from the zenith bank in Nigeria. Only didn’t expect someone to actually contact the bank…!!! These people aren’t too swift…!!!

    They play the numbers hoping to fall prey to your emotions. Only this one plays on a Romance scam to work you out of your money…!!! Beware…!!! Its all about the money….!!!!

  6. D.

    this rihanna kelvin character claims to have a inheritance of $2.5 million dollars. The zenith bank doesn’t disburse money in any other form other than the local Nigerian money…!!! That should be a clue right there. Nor do they conduct business over email.

    Like I said, the new trend for the 419 scam is a romance scam…!!! Its gut wrenching. And twisted in its evil….!!! They will start off asking for little by little money and then work you out of every dime you have.
