I got the following email this morning. Kudu seems like a great guy. I mean, all he wants from me is my bank account number where he can instruct the bank to transfer a whole lot of money to me in about three working days.
Isn't that swell of him? ...even though he called me 'sir'.
I humbly ask for your assistance to enable me transfer
the money my late father kept in a bank in(THE TRUST
BANK)before he died, into your nominated account
My name is KUDU JOHNSON, my mother's name is Madam
Mariam Johnson and my late father's name is Chief Omeh
Attah Johnson. He was a gold and diamond merchant from
Ashanti region of Ghana in West Africa
I am from a polygamous family and my father has four
wives and twenty-four children, am the eighth child
and my mother is the last wife of my father and he
entrusted all his valuable documents to her.
Since we are from a polygamous home, after the death
of my father, the whole family has been deserted. Now
my elder brothers, sisters and their mothers are in
search of my father's documents but my mother who is
in possession of the documents has refused to
disclose the custodian of the documents to them,
because they are all fighting for themselves and
their selfish interest.
Right now all I want from you is your bank account
number where we can instruct the bank to transfer this
money to you by telegraphic transfer, which takes
about three working days.
We are making this arrangement in order to avoid the
rest of the children and their mothers, because if
they find out they will take everything from us.
It is for the mutual benefit of both of us, you will
be entitle to twenty percent of the funds, as the
owner of the account, the total amount in the bank is
$28 million dollars.
Please reply immediately with your Bank account
details so that we can forward the information to the
bank of ghana to expedite the transfer immediately.
Could you also include your contact address, fax
numbers and your private mobile phone number for easy
