Hi Guys, I just received this in my spam email and I thought I would share it! It seems to be a variation of the Nigerian scam that was all the rage several years ago. Here it is and what do you think?



Dear Sir/Madam, Compliments of the season to you. I know we have not met before, but my proposal calls for an emergency alert which gives me no room for much protocol but to hit directly. My name is Barr. Tomas Fontana (Esq.) of Tomas Fontana Chambers & Associates. There is a client of mine, a Syrian who was killed along with his family during the Syrian protest against the Government. His name is Mr. Yamin Ourfali from Allepo District in Syria, an oil business magnate who worked for National Oil Corporation in Syria for many years until his death. Before his death during the civil war in Syria, he deposited two trunk box containing the sum of USD $8M (Eight Million United States Dollars) and 1000 Carats of Uncut Diamond known to me in April 13th 2009, in a confided Safe Security Company here in Spain. Recently as I was checking his documents file with me in my office and from my enquiries and investigations from the Safe Security Company, I discovered that he has no next of kin registered to claim this consignment due to some high co-operate security secrecy surrounding the consignment. Furthermore, it is also unknown to the Safe Security Company the real content of the deposited consignment with them as cash; he did not declared the content of the two boxes as foreign currency but as Diplomatic Documents and Confidential Co-operate Treasure/ Valuable documents which we must uphold in the process of filling the claim of this consignment. As his representing legal adviser and the only legal person known to the Safe Security Company, I have in my custody all the legal deposit documents that cover this deposit which I will immediately use your personal details to replace as the next of kin and business co-operate to late Yasmin Ourfali. Upon receipt of your response, I will immediately tender to the Security Company a letter informing them to immediate release the deposited consignment in your name as the heir inheritor/next of kin and business co-operate to late Mr. Tasmin Ourfali. Therefore, to make this effective, I required that you forward to me your full contact details, such as:
1) Your Full Names
2) Your direct phone/Fax Numbers
3) Your Age and Sex
4) Your Occupations
5) Your Religion
6) Your Date of birth
7) Your Contact address
On your arrival in Spain we will move the fund to the bank for onward transfer to your designated bank account outside Spain. I want you to also maintain absolute secrecy and confidential of this message as a matured business person with high confidential integrity. If you are not capable of handling this fund, do not disclose it to any other person as this is very important and once in a life time business opportunity for me. We will discuss on sharing percentage as soon as I hear from you. Yours Sincerely, Mr. Tomas Fontana Dir. Tel: +34 -602-512-585 Email:tomas_fontana@mail2world.com or tomas-fontana@Safe-mail.net


I'm still curious as to why they would need someones religion? Also, y'all try to keep this secret now, ya hear?

Well, it is nice (on some level somewhere) that they finally decided to improve their grammar in these posts. Perhaps it was my replies pointing out their inconsistencies all those years


Thanks for posting the heads up

You mean it's not real?

No free trip to Spain?

No monies?

But then they are lying!!


My question is, how would some guy in Syria leave millions to some unknown person in an email?

I can't believe they keep sending out this trash, idiots.

You should make up some info and reply. Or give them the name and address of a law enforcement agency to send their bogus checks and things too.

These scammers can be fun to mess with. Just don't make it too obvious you know it's a scam and you can keep them going for quite awhile.

When you reply to them it seems to increase their emails to you.
I won the British lottery three times last month, and didn't even have a ticket.
Ignore them and they'll go away.Hopefully.

That picture was great!

I have filed the email in the appropriate place - the "delete forever" button.
