A murder mystery, wrapped up in a family tragedy combined with a business saga

Hmmm, well at least the scammers are working out new plot lines…

There might be a TV series or a movie of the week at least  in this effort…

This is the latest one clogging up my e mail box… :astonished:

Dear Friend,

Please let this letter not to bring confusion to you. I know that we have not met either before but hear me from the dept of your mind. It is circumstances that made to send this to you.

I will introduce myself first to you, My name is Michael Koume, I lost my mother, my hero Mrs Celine Koume a year ago. She was poisioned to death by her associate in business. She formed a company by one Mr.Denis Adams who poisoned her only to take benefit of the multi million venture.

He was arrested immedaitely my mother died and he entered an agreement with my mother’s brothers that I and the immedaite younger brother of my mother will represent my mother’s interest in the company. After six months I was kicked out of the company because I said that we have to change the company’s lawyer who I termed was part of the elimination of my mother.

I did not know that they have changed all the company’s documents without my name appearing any where. I will have to let you know more detail on that but let me move to the point why I am contacting you. I have been nick named bastard by my mother’s relations, They have named all source of names even calling me outcast because my mother is late, while my mother was the bread winner of the family. They have pushed me out of my mother’s mansion and still want to eliminate my life.

I got through the records of my mother account books three weeks ago while crying and meditating, which I beleive was inspired by the spirit of God, I recovered that there is a huge sum of money she deposited in a bank, which is $9,500,000.Nine million five hundred thousand united states dollars. The note attached to the deposit agreement she made with the bank indicated that, the money was to be used to purchase machinery for the establishment of a new company of her own.

Please all I need from you is to do all you can to help me to get this money out of the bank. I have been to the bank where this money is deposited immediately,I discovered this. The bank told me that my mother informed them that the money was to be remitted to her company’s costumer account abroad, which her costumer will provide to them but since then they have never heard from her nor the costumer. Now my mother is late. I don’t want the bank to know that my mother is late. I told them that she is ill and appointed me to represent her in her affairs.

(1).I want you to provide an account where the money will be remitted into as my mother’s costumer.

(2).To make arrangement for me to leave here as soon as possible

(3).How much commission will you take for rendering the assistant.

My mother did not marry to any man, She had me as the only child while she was having an affair with the person that surpposed to be my father when she was 18 years and the man abandoned her and disappeared which forced her to remain single. Now I am 20 years and never saw my father for a day. I have no home now and my life is in danger. I don’t have any one to run into. All the members of my mother family have turned their back on me because I demand for my right. They told me that I don’t belong to the family. That I should go and look for my father. Whom I don’t know. I have made trace to know my father without sucess. I want you to help me from the inner most of your heart.

God will bless you for saving my life and future.

Yours sisncerely,
Michael Koume


Hoping to increase collusion by confusion??


Speaking of strange mail, what the heck is this about?

[original attachment deleted after 2 years]

Hmm, perhaps it’s an exotic code, designed by secret agents to forward state secrets to foreign powers.

Your e mail is an exotic blind box drop…

Or it’s hints to the Daily Jumble puzzle in the Vancouver Sun…

your choice eh… :unamused:
