I just checked my e-mails and found this one
Maybe it's just my warped sense of humour, but it cracked me up something chronic :D

check it out:-
_____________________________________________________

FROM: MR JOHN PUJEH
PHONE: +229-981587 (BENIN REPUBLIC)
EMAIL: johnpujeh8@yahoo.com

I am MR JOHN PUJEH from SIERRA LEONE, a Country in
WEST AFRICA. My father is MR MOMOH PUJEH, former
MINISTER of TRANSPORT and COMMUNICATIONS and one time
DEPUTY FINANCE MINISTER in Sierra Leone. My father and
mother were arrested by the government of my Country
and put in detention since 28/09/2001. My parents were
accused of keeping large quantity of DIAMONDS in the
house, and also privately selling large quantity of
DIAMONDS abroad. You can verify this from SIERRA
LEONE EMBASSY in your country.

I escaped to a hide out in BENIN REPUBLIC, another
Country in West African with 2 Trunk boxes containing
about Forty Six Million U.S. dollars (US$46,000,000.00).
I kept the boxes in a TRUST COMPANY in COTONOU Capital
of BENIN REPUBLIC. For my safety and that of the boxes,
i did not let the company know that the boxes contain
money.I told them that the boxes contain documents.

I cannot move about freely now. I need Your help
urgently for both SAFE KEEPING and INVESTING of this
money in your country. You are one of the three email
contacts given to me by a Cyber Cafe' operator on my
request for a foreign contact. She did not tell me
your name or country of origin. Though I did not tell
her why I needed the contact of any foreigner.

Because of the urgent and confidential nature of this
business, you are advised to keep everything secret for
now. if you are interested in doing this business with me,
kindly reply immediately on my email Address for more
explanations. When replying, include your safe and private
telephone numbers for easy communications.
Thanks for your anticipated co-operation.

Yours faithfully,
MR JOHN PUJEHjpujea

Hehehehe!

It's a standard scam.

If you fall for it, you're a sucker.

This kinda of crap dates back decades.

First they get your phone number.

Then your credit card/bank accnt #s.

Next you are ruined and telling
your story on the 6 O clock newz.

Forward the email to your law enforcement
and hope the scammers get scammed. :D
