I'm so lucky. I get letters telling me that I have won the lottery, even though I haven't entered and now it appears that I can inherit nearly $10.000.000 just because I have the same surname as some one else.
It seams that some one with the same name died in main land China with out leaving a will and if I pretend to be his relative a Mr Dong Li from Wing Hang Bank will make sure the estate goes to me.
Now aren't I lucky and all I have to do is split the money with him, oh and one small thing I have to send him some money to help bribe some officials.
Now I have to keep this secrete but I don't think any of you will tell.
I'm still waiting notification of £19.000.000 from a Nigerian lady who has had some awful bad luck recently, what with here husband being killed in a car crash and herself being struck down with terminal cancer.
What with her money grabbing relatives she quite rightly wants some one of good standing to put the money towards good causes.
I too have sent the necessary details, but no doubt there is much paperwork to sort out.
I thought these spam letters only came as e-mails, but I have just received the same offer in a typed letter, posted in London with a second class stamp. If he can afford stamps and stationary fraud must be more profitable than I thought!
Sorry, Carver, Mr Dong Li has been very busy and has promised me half of $9.8m as a "relation" of mine has died in China. In his letter he says "in banking circles this happens all the time". I suppose he is right about those in banking circles are crooks.
