These days most of us find our mail boxes are filled with spam mails. Thank Google; as it started offering 2GB capacity of individual free mail box and the suit was sooner followed by all like yahoo, hotmail and other service providers. Earlier, it used to be common experience for many of us finding the mail box packed upto the brim with spam mails. It was a nasty way to jam anyone’s mail box. The spammers and the spam mails are similar in nature and subjects, most of them are originated from West African countries pleading to retrieve million of dollars from some unscrupulous financial companies who need your personal details to deliver the funds. Many complaints of cheating have been pouring in from naïve internet users for fraudulent use of their bank accounts or personal details. Off late, there is some awakening due to wide publicity by specially in print media. But still lots to be done to curtail such mails as many of them are cocktailed with virus and spy wares. Here below I give you some typical spam mails. You can set your spam filter in your mail box to deliver straight the spam mails to spam mail box.
A typical spam mail is mostly like this :
“Nice to Meet You.
Greeting in The Name of God.
Permit me to inform you of my desire of going into business relationship with you. I really know that it will be very starnge to you,but it is Gods Direction,so please i apologise for the disturbance,May God bless you and fortify you.
I am Mariam Barry the only daugther of late Mr and Mrs Lambert Barry from the republic of sierra loene. My father was a very wealthy cocoa merchant based in Abidjan, the economic capital of Cote D'Ivoire before he was poisoned to death by his business associates on one of their outing to discuss on a business deal.
When my mother died on the 21st October 1992, my father took me so special because I am motherless. Before the death of my father on 27th June 2005 in a private hospital here in Abidjan. He secretly called me on his bedside and told me that he has a sum of $6.500.000 left in a Bank here in Cote d'ivoire, that he used my name as her only daugther for the next of kin in deposit of the fund.
Further more he also explained to me that it was because of this wealth and some huge amount of money his business associates supposed to balance him from the deal they had that he was been poisoned.He then advised that I should seek for a God fearing foreign partner in a country of my choice who will assist me and transfer this money and use it for investment purpose, then I would want you to provide your personal contacts including your phone/fax number for easier communication.
I am honourably seeking your assistance in the following ways.
1) I want you to help me transfer this money from the Bank here and transfer it to your account for onward investment in your country.
2) You are going to be the manager of this fund and also my personal guardian until I finished my studies as I'm just 20 years old..
3) You are going to procure admission for me to continue my studies in one of the known university in your country.
4) Moreover, I am willing to offer you 25% of the sum as compensation for effort input after the successfully transfer to you from the Bank here. And I am willing to proceed with you as soon as I have your response.
Anticipating to hear from you soon.
Thanks and God bless.
Miss Mariam Barry”
