An Arms Race In Scamming

It is such a strange thing to think about 

We are in an arms race in the technology and approaches to scamming.  

Yet the stone-age approach seems like it still works!

Here is a perfect example received through LoveAccess.com:

Dearest one, 

I know my mail will come to you as a surprise since you don’t know me and we have not had any previous contact. Please, forgive me if am disturbing your privacy. 

The reason why I have contacted you is to explain my plight to you as to know if you can help me. My late father left some money for me before he died but I am having problem with the bank to get the money because of some agreement clause in the deposit agreement. 

[have you ever noticed how Father’s are always late? wink]

Part of the agreement stipulates that my late father will provide a foreign partner who will claim and invest the money overseas, that only this partner has the right of withdrawal of the said deposit. That unless I attain the ages of at least 24 years that I cannot control this money without the help of his foreign partner. At the moment I am and I need the money to ensure a good future. 

The bank require that I should present my fathers foreign partner, so I need you to act as my fathers foreign partner and assist me claim the money from the bank. This is the reason why I have contacted you. If you are willing to assist me, please, let me know so that I can discuss more about it. I wait your response. 

Yours sincerely, 


Of course, just an FYI, when you see a Dating Profile that says something like this, run away!
