Do you think that is on purpose to get me to open it? Or just the 'monkeys typing' syndrome?

Subject: MyCompanyName lunatic hands behind 683

Do you think that is on purpose to get me to open it?  Or just the 'monkeys typing' syndrome?

Miss Betsy

I think 90% of my spam is 'monkeys typing'.

We know spammers can't spell. I know they change words to try and get by filters, but even words they do not need to change, are not spelled correctly.

I think the spam I am amused by the most is the blank ones, only header info. They can't even setup their spamming software correctly.

This sure sounds like an interesting scam! Has anyone else recieved it?

Greetings to you,

This letter must come to you as a big surprise, but I believe it is only a day that people meet and become great friends and business partners. My name is Mr. John Kuffor, the present branch Manager of a bank here in Ghana. I write you this proposal in good faith, believing that I can trust you with the information I am about to reveal to you. Like I said, I have a transaction that will benefit both of us, as your assistance is required as a foreigner.

I was the head of Accounts department in my bank head office, but last December I was asked to take position of a Manager of our branch in Kumasi who passed on, so that was how I became the present Manager and discovered a fortune. As I resumed duty, I discovered an account with total sum of $12,500,000 million that has not been operated on for the past 4 years. From my investigation, I found out that this account belongs to one Late Mr. Ziya Bazhayev a Russian big time Oil dealer, who unfortunately lost his life in the Yak-40 jetliner on March 9, 2000. You will read more news about the crash on visiting this site;

http://www.amarillonet.com/stories/031500/...A0703.001.shtml and

http://news.1chinastar.com/ll/english/61934.shtml.

I have kept a close monitoring of the account since then and nobody has come forward to claim the money as next of kin to the late Mr. Ziya Bazhayev meaning that no one is aware of the account. I cannot directly take out this money without the help of a foreigner and that is why I am contacting you for an assistance to claim the funds and share it with me. As the Manager of my bank branch, I have the power to influence the release of the funds to any foreigner that comes up as the next of kin to the account, with the correct information concerning the account, which I shall give you.

I am seeking your co-operation to present you as the next of kin to the account. There is practically no risk involved, the transaction will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of law.

If you accept to work with me, I want you to state how you wish us to share the funds in percentage, so that both parties will be satisfied. Contact me as soon as you receive this message if you feel we can work together, so we can go over the details. Thanking you in advance and may God bless you. Please, treat with utmost confidentiality. I wait your urgent response. You can as well contact me by fax, 233 27621073.

Regards,

Mr. John Kuffor

Only for the last 5 years or so...It is called a 419 scam after (IIRC) the African law that it is breaking.

People have been known to string the scammer along until they get enough information to turn ovr to authorities.

Wow - cascading style sheets in spam.
A couple years ago I saw a nifty trick -- the spammer embedded his web bug in a link to an external stylesheet. I got suspicious because even though he went to the trouble to put the <link> tag in his e-mail body, he never appeared to use any of the styles that might have been found there.

I went to their website (www.wecareaboutmoney.com) and reported the abuse, asked if they were aware of it...I am still waiting for an answer.

Without delving into the message itself, I'd say that this might be your classic "Joe job" -- that is, sending out spam in someone else's name with the intent to portray them as a spammer, a criminal, a fraud, etc.

Possibly the sender of the mail had a disagreement with the fine folks at WeCareAboutMoney, and decided to throw them under the bus.

My word Rick, you've picked up a post that goes back a ways - but of course, more timely than ever. I haven't noticed many of these personally but I guess they're still circulating to confirm email addresses and/or IP addresses for further abuse. I'm considered an eccentric at work because I have my email app set to "text only" (they just listen politely when I advise them to follow suit ...). All of which probably indicates the greater majority of users are vulnerable to "email bugs" or worse.

Yes, Farelf, I saw the date after I responded. I can only defend myself by noting that the last couple of replies had put the whole topic back at the top of the stack.

Actually, I seldom see any really fancy tricks (like the stylesheet example I gave above) in my spam load these days except for the occasional mainsleazer who wends his way into my inbox. Sigh. The hardcore spammers who afflict me do not bother to send web bugs anymore (if they ever did). They expend all their R&D on botnets, reverse web proxies, and crooked DNS -- matters that I can't directly look into.
