Lol i just got one of them but it had a different name i just deleted it though.

Edit: just went through my trash and found it:

Dear Friend,

I got your contact during my search on the Internet. My name is Mr.Emmanuel Agyeman,the regional manager of a branch of one of the Bank's in Ghana. I am a Ghanaian married with two kids.

I have packaged a financial transaction that will benefit both of us. As the regional manager of the

bank, it's my duty to send financial reports to my head office in the capital city of Accra. On the

course of the last year 2004 end of the of the year's report, I discovered that my branch in which I am the manager made Two Million Five Hundred and Fifty Thousand US Dollars (2,550.000.00) of which my head office is not aware of and will never be aware of it. I have since then PLACED this fund on a SUSPENCE ACCOUNT without a beneficiary.

As an officer of the bank, I cannot be directly connected to this money thus I am impelled to request for your assistance to receive this money into your bank account. I intend to part 30% of this fund to you while 70% shall be for me. I do need to assured you that there are practically no risk involved in this. It’s going to be a bank-to-bank transfer. All I need from you is to stand as the original depositor of this fund.

If you accept this offer, I will appreciate your timely response and you can call me on this number

00233-244-275990.

With regards,

MR EMMANUEL AGYEMAN.

If you've still discovering for the first time the variety of dodgy email scams and aren't sure, copy some of the text into GOOGLE. A sentence or so, and you'll soon have your answers and some pointers too how they work and on spotting them in the future :P

Thing is, if you send them out to millions of recipients, chances are that in the end some greedy/christian fool will be stupid enough to try and 'help out' (get rich). Then they get stung for their life savings and wind up on Watchdog crying about it.

Just check the English in these things - least they could do is hire a Brit to word the emails. So far I've had about 30, one from Yasser Arafat's widow herself, and others from prominent people with loads of gold bullion.

I think you should go for it. Or at least email back and ask how to deposit the money, etc.

I just checked, that is the code for Ghana.

I never answer any of these mails,but I do enjoy reading about people who wind them up over massive lengths of time...

Check out the University of Nigeria where they learn their trade :(" , then Bait A Mugu and The 419 Eater where merciless Westerners take the piss.

Definitely do not try this at home, kids...

I might go to a bank, open an account, and have them rig it, so when somone goes to take money, they just get a message saying " get a job you hobo peice of shit, If I knew where you lived I would come there and kick the crap outa you, get aids and die, and wheres my money???"

then send them the detail to that account :(
