I am lucky that I don’t get a lot of spam, but sometimes it’s fun to read. I have a letter from Mr. Niam Cho, Director of Operations of the Hang Seng Bank Ltd, Sai Wan Ho Branch, Hong Kong.Mr Cho writes “I have an obscured business suggestion for you.” at least it wasn’t an obscene suggestion.
Perhaps I should invest my lottery winnings in his investment scheme? Yes, I also received a notice from Fed Ex stating that CHEVRON/TEXACO LOTTERY OFFICIALS, have paid postage on a package for me. They just need to know my full name, address and sex!
Cecelia Garang sent me a letter addressed to “Dearest”, no name just the overly familiar salutation. She says “considering the fact that I sourced your email contact through the Internet in search of trusted person who can assist me.” further more she states “I am seeking for long term relationship and investment assistance.” She needs my bank account number so she can transfer $12.7 million dollars US into my account because her wicked stepmother is blocking her inheritance. My fee for supplying my bank information would be 20%.
I am so glad for these two windfalls since Muhammad Salim doesn’t really want to assassinate Husband, and if we send him $7,000 ( darn he specifies dollars but maybe he will take pesos?) for his team’s travel expenses he is willing to call off the dogs!
oops, he further instructs me not to tell anyone,

I went to SNOPES and found out that Mr Salim is asking considerably less than the original hitman scam and of course Miss Garang is doing a variation of the Nigerian Scam
The Fed Ex package is a probably a version of the Courier Parcel Scam or maybe it’s a type of lottery scam?
Mr Cho? I don’t know what his scam is called, but it has all the earmarks.
