So I get to work and check my email, and this is the message I get:

From: MR. MICHEAL EDEh [mailto:[email protected]]
Sent: Wednesday, May 15, 2002 11:19 PM
To: [email protected]


I know you will be surprised to receive this letter I am Mr. Michael Edeh of the Democratic Republic of Congo and a close associate of the late President, Laurent Kabila,of the Democratic Republic of Congo. I got your address through the Congo Information Exchange. Our late President, Laurent Kabila assigned me and a colleague to convey some funds to his guest house, a day before he was assassinated, we had intentions to do as he instructed, but on hearing of his death, we saw this as a golden opportunity to divert this money since we have been seeing money exchange hands as top Military officers were looting the economy; we shared this money and I got a total sum of US$21.2Million (Twenty-one Million, Two Hundred Thousand United States Dollars Only) in cash.

Government originally had defaced the money for security reasons and I moved it to HOLLAND(NETHERLAND)as Diplomatic baggage where it is now deposited with a Security and Finance Company (TAGGED AS ARTIFACTS) in order to beat security. I am presently in Abidjan (Cote D’Ivoire). Where I ran to with my family, and are now living under an assumed name, as I was being sought for by his son Joseph the incumbent President,who wants to recover the money in the name of reconciliation but with the actual intention of keeping it for himself. As I have lost
everything,except this money. I am prepared to offer you some percentage of this money which will be agreed
on if only you will assist me to claim this money for safe keeping anywhere .

From the above, you will understand that my entire life and future depends on this money, as such I shall be very grateful if you can assist me. Please note that the major thing I demand from you is absolute assurance and utmost secrecy, kindly contact me on the above e-mail even when you decided otherwise, I will be most grateful if you maintain the confidentiality of this matter.

I am looking forward to your urgent reply.

Yours sincerely,

Michael Edeh
Next thing you know he'd be asking me for a few thousand dollars to get his money back. Oldest scam in the book.

I sent him a nastygram back letting him know if he bothers me again, I'll send my Department of Defense work buddies after him.

Probably funding terrorists.

That one's been floating around for about 6 months now. I've seen it 3 or 4 different ways. When it's not Congo, it's Nigeria or something else.

Fell for it everytime! :p
