Spam

I often get spam emails telling me that I have won money or inherited a fortune from a long lost relative. To claim my money all I have to do is send details of my bank account and password etc! Here are two good ones that arrived this week,

From Mr. Johnson Iweka.

Attn:

My name is Mr. Johnson Iweka, a banker here in Abidjan, Cote D' Ivoire. I want to transfer $10,500,000 USD belonging to (late) Mr John Hughes who was among the victims here during the political crisis here in the year 2005. You can provide a bank account of your choice for this amount and also the percentage you wish to take for your assistance.

If we agree on the terms, you shall hold the balance of the funds on trust after deducting your percentage, until I will be able to join you with my entire family for investment.

Reply for more details.

Faithfully,

Mr. Johnson Iweka.

And even better...

They are comical!
There must be a great influx of 'newly ordained Greek priests' arriving in the UK They are frequently seeking to stay at Michael House, our 'facility'. they just want to make a deposit by card, and they also want to stay with our neighbours in their 'facility'. Apparently it is a money laundering scheme, whereby they will book and then cancel and claim the money back, all squeaky clean.

So far, we have met no newly ordained priests, Greek or otherwise.
