Not via email, but via messenger. I'll have to post the conversation I had with him. It was so funny, I kept him going for ages.

I'll show you later.

This is from a while ago and I never finished the emails sadly, but I did get a few laughs out of it, so bare with me.

Bonjour Bien Aimée, kodak straszak

Je viens par ce courrier tout d'abord, vous remerciez de l'attention accordée à la lettre. Je vous informe que j'ai perdu ma femme qui me restait et je n'ai pas eu le goût de la paternité

Je suis très heureux de constater que vous porter un intérêt particulier à cette affaire. Je suis désormais certain que j'ai rencontré la personne qu'il faut pour accomplir cette œuvre caritative.


En effet, comme vous connaissez déjà ma vie actuelle, je reviens juste vous faire part de la procédure à suivre afin que vous puissiez bénéficier légalement de mes biens dont j'ai décidé d'offrir à un être qui a la crainte de Dieu et saura faire bon usage dans l'avenir pour le bien de l'humanité.

Je me sens si mal chaque jour car je ne sais pas si je vais survivre suite aux différentes opérations. Bien aimé, j'ai peur de mourir mais la vie ne me laisse pas le choix. Je prie l’éternel, notre Dieu de bien vouloir m'accorder une place dans les cieux.

La bible nous a incités pour comprendre que "bénie soit la main qui donne ".

Écoutez, quand l’épreuve frappe à notre porte, les « pourquoi » se multiplient dans notre esprit.

Le psalmiste, décrivant un temps d’adversité, s’adresse au Seigneur dans son désespoir : « Réveille-toi ! Pourquoi dors-tu Seigneur ? Réveille-toi ! Ne nous repousse pas à jamais ! Pourquoi caches-tu ta face ? Pourquoi oublies-tu notre misère ?…Lève-toi pour nous secourir ! Délivre-nous à cause de ta bonté » (Ps 44.24-27).

Job, dans sa détresse, s’écrie : « Pourquoi m’as-tu fait sortir du sein de ma mère ? Je serais mort et aucun œil ne m’aurait vu » (Job 10.18).

Toutes ses personnes demandent cela à cause de la misère qu’ils vivent. Ils ne se poseront pas cette question si le bonheur venait à frapper à leur porte mais plutôt remercier le saint Père.

Ce passage sur Job est juste pour vous demander de voir la réalité en face. Tout les deux, nous ne sommes pas chimère mais bien réel. Dans nos soucis, nous avons tendance à nous lamenter et quand le bonheur frappe à notre porte nous ne devons plus nous lamenter. Il y a un temps pour tout, un temps de pleurer, un temps de rire, un temps à se lamenter et un temps de danser. Pour tous ceux qui vivent il y a de l'espérance.

Vous m'apportez beaucoup d'affection Je vous remercie également pour vos encouragements.

Depuis l'avancée de mon état, j'ai parcouru plusieurs grands pays à la recherche de remède définitif, et j'ai aussi consulté plusieurs grands médecins spécialistes du cancer, mais cela n'a fait qu'améliorer mon état et non me guérir totalement.

J'ai passé toute mon existence à me consacrer à mon travail et à amasser des fortunes, sans m'ouvrir au monde. J’ai toujours vécu dans la solitude depuis le décès de ma femme.

Alors en ce moment, je ne voudrais pas mourir en laissant cette somme au profil de la banque, sans aucun bénéficiaire légitime, c'est pour cela que je vous écris en ce jour pour vous faire part de mon œuvre, qui est de vous faire bénéficier de ces fonds, tout en ayant conscience que nous ne nous connaissons pas.

Bien vrai que je ne vous connais pas alors, comprenez que si je suis tombé sur votre adresse suite à des recherches et je me suis laisser guider par mon instinct ceci n'est pas un hasard car c'est le seigneur qui m'a conduit vers vous.

J'ai décidé volontairement de vous contacter, car Sachiez que c'est l'œuvre de DIEU qui m'a emmené à vous choisir parmi tant de mails archives sur le net pour vous confier cette grande responsabilité dont je suis convaincu que vous allez prendre comme une bénédiction et un don venu d'une personne de bonne foi et Pouvoir venir en aide si l'occasion de présence à les organismes humanitaires, les ONG, pour montrer votre propre projet à vous qui profitera au monde d'avancer plus tard.

Vous devez utiliser 30% de ces fonds pour réaliser mon vœu et le reste des fonds vous reviendra de droit.

Aidez-moi à exaucer cette œuvre afin que mon âme puisse reposer en paix.

Ce que je demande à DIEU, c’est de rendre votre cœur saint afin de réaliser mes projets avec ce DON.

J'ai été adoptée par un orphelinat au canada depuis que j'ai perdu mes parents à l'âge de 9 ans. J'ai perdu ma femme depuis 7 ans maintenant et nous n'avions malheureusement pas d'enfant au moins j'ai l'affection provenant de votre part et cela me réjouit tellement que vous ayez pensé à moi en ces moments difficiles. Je ne sais comment vous remercier mais Dieu seul vous le rendra au centuple.

Je voudrais maintenant procéder à la connaissance de votre personne, veuillez s'il vous plait me parler de vous en quelques lignes, et je vous donnerais les instructions à suivre pour le reste dans une procédure en vous mettant en contact avec mon notaire qui s'occupe de cette affaire. Il sera en mesure de faire le nécessaire avec votre collaboration pour que ces fonds soient automatiquement virés au compte de votre choix. J'attends de vous lire le plus tôt possible, et j'espère pouvoir compter sur vous.

Par ailleurs, je reste aussi à toutes vos suggestions, soucis et préoccupations avec de plus faire connaissance et mener à bien cette affaire.

Au cas où vous aviez des doutes et vous ne vouliez pas vous engagez dans cette affaire je ne vous oblige à rien car je suis la personne qui est venue vers vous.

Je vous souhaite de passer de bons moments et que le Seigneur tout puissant vous protège et ainsi que votre famille.

Fraternellement.

Monsieur MARCEL DOIRE

I got this random *** email from this guy. Now, I don't have the photograph of him (Outlook has long since banned him and I am guessing that removed his photo???) but it was literally a random old French guy, in the most ridiculous pose. He also sent a photo of "his" dead wife, too.


Now, naturally I didn't want to let this opportunity pass, so I sent an email in Finnish. My lady is Finnish, and I figured "Why not pretend to be Finnish?" With a name like Kodak on my email, I took the chance.

hei Marco

Huomasin vahvan uskomuksesi. Se on hyvä. Minäkin uskon uskoon. Olkaamme jakaa uskomme.

Huomasin liitetyn PDF-tiedoston, mutta se ei toiminut. Voisitteko lähettää PDF-tiedoston uudelleen, jotta voisin yrittää nauttia uskomme.

Kiitos. Ylistä Allahia.

-Pomp Adouré


If you translate that, you get something like this...

hey Marco

I noticed your strong belief. It's good. I believe in the faith too. Let us share our faith.

I noticed the attached PDF, but it didn't work. Could you resubmit the PDF file so I can try to enjoy our faith.

Thank you. Praise Allah.

-Pomp Adouré

I naturally pretended to be religious. His email was religious as hell, and he was preaching to the good lords name. So, I went along with this, with my real name: POMPADOUR!


Anyway, did he reply? Sadly no. But I was waiting, and I was hoping for my dear friend Marcel Doire to praise Vishnu and have some Allah funtimes with Jesus for me.

From some random dead Robert's lawyer who wanted to know my bank account details because Robert was my long lost uncle and I was his only living heir and we apparently had the same surname .
I asked my grandma if she had an affair in the past... she killed me .
The lawyer's name was Adrian Nurse and he was actually a legit lawyer :rofl:.. I mean someone probably stole the real guy's name but he was on Linkedin and he wanted to give 17M USD.

Another from Ms Ayesha Gaddafi who wanted me to help her setup a business or something because she wasn't allowed.. that one gave me TSR vibes :cool:.

Okay I promised I'd show you the one I got on messenger.

This is, to date, still one of the greatest conversations I have EVER had.

I hope you're sitting comfortably because it's long:
