    This is just too good to be true! I received this message via email from a poor woman in a difficult situation needing MY help! The best part is that I'll be able to make $375,000 with minimal effort. Here's the email:

    Dear sympathize one

    Good day; it’s my pleasure to contact you for a business
    venture which I intend to establish in your country. And I
    hope my massage will not hurt your feeling for telling you
    of my desire going into business relationship with you, I
    plead with you to help me transfer the sad funds to your
    account for an investment purpose, wish my late father
    deposited in a bank here in my country; my father was well
    known as gold and cocoa merchant in West Africa Ghana and
    Cote d’ivoire, but his business associate poison my father
    on outing,

    Although my father will survive, but later die in a
    private hospital, but before the death of my father he
    called me as the only child and tell me his entire secret,
    and also the money he deposited in bank here in my
    country, he used my name in depositing of the money in a
    bank, my father deposited the money for an investment
    purpose and to continues my education/that I should look
    for a honest and trustworthy person who will help me
    transfer the money and stand as my guardian to retrieve
    the money from the bank,

    And I have also went to the bank with the certificates
    documents coverings total sum of (Two million Five hundred
    thousand united state of America dollars), and they have
    assure me that as soon as I proved my international
    foreign partner that they bank will transfer the money to
    the person’s account without delay,

    I took this urgent decision because of my uncle who was
    among the business associate to poison my late father, and
    he have sold all that belongs to my father simple because
    I am a female child, now trying to claim my only future,
    wish is the money that my father deposited in a bank, and
    my father worn me I should not have anything with his
    brother he his the one that plan with the business
    associate poisoning him to death, and because of that I am
    in a local hotel where he will not locate me, till my
    inheritance money get transferred, then I shall live the
    country immediately for my life safety,

    Thank you for you kind attention, and for your assistance
    I am willing to offer you 15% of the total money for you
    kind assistance/effort during the transfer, more details
    shall be given to you as soon as you show your interest
    for helping me,

    I would have to Jack with her. I would lead her/ him on for months and play dumb just for laughs and giggles.

    Oh, don't think that I'm not doing that. I figure that the more I lead this person/these people on, the more I waste their time. Any suggestions for responding email content?

    It's gonna be hard to top the guy who made the MacBook out of a three ring binder with drawings taped to it for the "screen" and "keyboard".

    I bet they purposefully make the writer sound illiterate, so the reader will think they are smarter then the author, and can take advantage of the poor author. "out swindle" them, so to speak.

    MORAL: Never assume.
