I have several different e-mail addresses, which I use for different reasons. A couple in particular I use simply as a dump site for spam. Every so often there's this or that online offer I run across which requires that I provide an e-mail address to take advantage of it. I've got just the e-mail address for them.
As time goes on these addresses fill up with all sorts of junk. I usually don't check on them very often except to just clear the queue and keep the address active. Recently, after one of them piled up 2141 e-mails, I took a moment or two to scan through what was there and happened upon several Nigerian Scam e-mails. Don't these people ever quit? Here's one example...
From Mrs Mary ClementTo which I replied, with all due cordiality...
I am Mrs Mary clement, from Sierra Leone Republic, residing in Cote d'Ivoire. I am married to Dr Alexander Clement Kouassi, who deals in Cocoa and Gold business, later became the director general of Cocoa and Gold business in Cote d'Ivoire for twenty five years before he died on 14 January year 2006. We were married for twenty years God gave us a son, his name is Danny Jr who is 18 years old now, and because of my husband love to me he refused to marry another wife for more children.
He died after a brief illness from food poison which lasted for only four days. Since his death I decided not to remarry or get another child outside my matrimonial home, my husband relatives was responsible for his death because they want to inherit the entire legacy, I was ill and my son is still a little boy. Before the death of my husband he deposited the sum of he deposited the sum of US$18.000.000,000.( Eighteen Million US dollars) in a suspense account with a bank here in Cote d Ivoire, Since my Doctor told me that I have a little time left (about Six months) due to my cancer problem.
Having known my condition and I can not survive this cancer illness, and I don't want to lose my only son, I decided to transfer this fund and my son out of this country to your care. I took this decision because I don't want to lose every thing my husband has worked for, and my husband relatives are not even good at all because they are responsible for the death of my husband in other to have all his properties and I don't want my husband's efforts to be used by those that conspired for his death because they may return back to still kill my son if they have the opportunity. so please if you are willing and honest to assist me, kindly respond back to me, and as soon as I receive your reply of accepting to help me I will give you all the details including your percentage for assisting us.
Thanks and God Bless you
Mrs Mary Clement and son,

Dingyest Mary,Not only is "she" giving the 18 mil but "she's" throwing in the "son". I'm excited. A twist designed to make it more believable? Complete with toys and pictures no doubt. I'm liking the idea of 18 mil though.
You gotta lot of nerve addressing me as "dearest" when you don't even know me. What kind of a jackass are you that you could part with $18,000,000 (eighteen million dollars) to someone you don't even know?
But if you wanna send it to me, who am I to refuse. Just use my home address. I take checks and money orders. If a debit card is faster for you I suppose my church would be glad to launder the money that way for you.
Ya know Mary, they say a fool and his money are soon parted. If you're really this much of an idiot we'll see how long it takes for you to get this to me.
Well, that was nice...back to reality.
