Talk about the Nigerian 4-1-9 scam in all its many variations, such as bogus checks sent from Nigeria to purchase used cars in the U.S. and many other variations of this scam.

Just received (Aug 11, 2008) this. Used my email address but nowhere addressed me by name.
I suspect that my family name is as common in Indonesia as it is on Mars. But it's not so rare a name in the US. In any case, if I ever had a rich relative, or one in Indonesia, believe me, I'd have kept in touch.

Greetings. I am Jim Leon. , an attorney at law. A deceased client of mine, that shares the same last name as yours, who here in after shall be referred to as my client, died as the result of a heart-related condition on March 12th 2005. His heart condition was due to the death of all the members of his family in the tsunami disaster on the 26th December 2004 in
Sumatra Indonesia. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2004_India ... earthquake
I can be reached on (linkjim.leon@yahoo.com.hk) for details.
My late Client has a deposit of Eighteen Million Dollars ( US$18 Million) left behind.
Best regards,
Jim Leon.
Attorney at Law
TEL: +60 122 473 440
linkjim.leon@yahoo.com.hk


The e-mail address puts guy in Hong Kong. There are plenty of US attorneys in Hong Kong but nearly all of them are working for multinational corporations; chances of a US attorney there with individual clients are slim. In any case, a search of Hong Kong lawyers does not turn up a Jim Leon.
Eighteen million is a very tempting sum but I already stand to make much more in helping some poor widow sneak her family's fortune out of Nigeria.

I have you both beat. Just last week I inherited 30,000,000 sterling pounds and couple of days later inherited another 1,000,000 pounds from some other lost relative.

I think I'll quit my job, borrow as much as possible through equity loans, and run about $50k on my credit cards because in just a few weeks I'll be rich to the tune of 31,000,000 pounds! :lol:

I just received this on my email. If you knew me, you'd know how EXTREMELY unlikely it is that a devout Moslem would put me in charge of his money.

Greetings.

As you read this, don't feel sorry for me, because it is the destiny
of everyman to die someday. I am usman Abdulkareem, a business
merchant.
I have been diagnosed with esophageal cancer. It has defiled all forms
of treatment, and right now I have only about a few months to live,
according to medical experts.
I regret that I have not particularly lived my life so well, as I
never really cared for anyone (not even myself), but my trade. Though
I am fortunate to be very well to do,
I was never open handed; I was always hostile to people and regarded
them like they never had hopes of becoming as successful as myself.
Now I know that there is a lot more to life than just prosperity.

I believe that when I am given a second chance to come to this world,
I would live my life a different way from how I have lived it.
Now that death is eminent, I have willed and given most of my
belonging to immediate and extended family members, as well as a few
close friends.
I want Allah to be merciful to me and accept my soul. Hence I have
decided to support charity work; this is what i want to be remembered
for. So far,
I have been able to reach out to charity organizations here in the
middle east, Algeria and Malaysia. Now that my health has deteriorated
so badly, I cannot do this myself anymore.

I once asked members of my family to aid me in giving of alms to those
organizations catering for the less privileged in Bulgaria and
Pakistan; but they refused and kept the resources to themselves.
I have come to a point where i have decided to not trust them anymore,
as they seem not to be contented with what I have left for them.
The last of my belonging which no one knows of, is the huge deposit of
eigteen milion US dollas that I have in a safe keeping compnay, which
I will want you to secure and bestow to charity organizations.

Please endeavour to reply me on usman25166@live.com and send me
your contact details for intimacy to this effect.

Wassalam.

Sulaiman Abdulkareem.

Wow - it doesn't just defy treatment, it even defiles it.
