    Just got this one
    It’s a great pleasure to write you.
    Do not think that this letter is a mistake. I do write you.
    I want to explain the reason of my writing. And tell you a few words about myself. Please, do not be afraid of my letter. That is not spam.
    Well, first of all, my name is Albeena. I’m 32. I’m single and do not have children. I live in Russia in the city Murom.
    There were a lot of different moments in my life; there was happiness, sorrow, joy and disappointment. But now I face a great problem, it is a problem of loneliness. I was married but at this moment I am a widow. I couldn’t believe it for a long time ... I couldn’t believe that I’m alone...
    You know, after my husband’s death I was loyal to him but now I’ve realized that life goes on and I should continue my life as well. However for me the word “to live” is to be with a loved person and give him all my love.
    That is why I addressed the international agency Dating. It is in my city Murom. I wrote a letter to you and left my photo. Well, I suppose, if you read this letter it means that the manager of the agency wrote you. His duty is to inform you and to find right partners to each other.
    So, I’ll continue writing about myself. I’m looking for serious relations. I’m looking for a man who will be able to love me and to love me as I am. A person who will be able to love my inner world, my body, my appearance, well, to love me all.
    My picture will help you to get a first impression about me.
    As for me, I’d like to say that my heart is open for a new love story. I realized that I have to live, to love and be loved. I want to live and enjoy this life, but not alone. And I want to make it with you.
    I’d like to say that age difference is nothing for me. It doesn’t mean anything. It is much more important what personality a man has.
    What concerns me, I’m affectionate and considerate. I’m fond of cooking and doing housework. However I also have a desire to have adventures. I love pets as well.
    I want it so much to make our correspondence possible.
    I will be very happy to see your letters at my e-mail. ([email protected])
    Wish you all the best.
    Take care.
    Your Albeena.

    Haha. Albeena makes me think of Ribena :ahee:
    I got one from a princess once:

    Good day and Compliments
    My Dear,

    I am writing this letter in confidence believing that if it is the wish of God for you to help me and my family, God almighty will bless and reward you abundantly and you would never regreat.

    I am a female student from University of Burkina faso,Ouagadougou,I am 25yrs old. I like any person who can be caring, loving and home oriented,I will love to have a long-term relationship with you and to know more about you. I would like to build up a solid foundation with you in time coming if you can be able to help me in this transaction.

    Well, my father died earlier two months ago and left I and my junior brother behind. My father was a king, which our town citizens titled him over sixteen years before his death.I was a princess to him and I am the only person who can take care of his wealth now because my junior brother is still young and my mother is not literate enough to know all my father's wealth.

    My father left the sum of USD $10.5 Million (ten million,five hundred thousand US Dollars)in a security company .This money was annually paid into my late fathers account from Etruscan's Permit In Burkina Faso.Company(E.P.I.B.F)and Etruscan's Gold company operating in our locality for the compensation of youth and community development in our jurisdiction.

    I don't know how and what I will do to invest this money somewhere in abroad, so that my father's kindred will not take over what belongs to my father and our family, which they were planning to do without my present because I am a female as stated by our culture in the town.

    Now,i urgently need your humble assistance to help me move this money from the security company to your bank account, That is why I felt happy when I saw your contact because I strongly believe that by the grace of God, you will help me invest this money wisely.

    I am ready to pay 15% of the total amount to you if you help us in this transaction and another 10% interest of Annual After Income to you, for handling this transaction for us, which you will strongly have absolute control over.If you can handle this project sincerely and also willing to assist me in lifting this fund from the security company,you shall never regret in your life for assisting me.

    Please, note that this transaction is 100% risk free and I hope to commence the transaction as quick as possible.

    Yours sincerely,

    Princess Onyeka Otutuzu

    i tend not to open them :p:


    This is much more entertaining. Trying to persuade the scammers to send them money.

    I actually had the very same email as the OP got. It went to my junk email anyway, it was deleted without me ever reading it.

    Haha, im repping you for your sig as soon as i can! :p:

    I think I may have had the best one.


    I felt very sorry and bad for you, that your life is going to end like this if you don't comply, i was paid to eliminate you and I have to do it within 10 days.

    Someone you call your friend wants you dead by all means, and the person have spent a lot of money on this, the person came to us and told us that he wants you dead and he provided us your names, photograph and other necessary information we needed about you. If you are in doubt with this I will send you your name and where you are residing in my next mail.

    Meanwhile, I have sent my boys to track you down and they have carried out the necessary investigation needed for the operation, but I ordered them to stop for a while and not to strike immediately because I just felt something good and sympathetic about you. I decided to contact you first and know why somebody will want you dead by all means. Right now my men are monitoring you, their eyes are on you, and even the place you think is safer for you to hide might not be.

    Now do you want to LIVE OR DIE? It is up to you. Get back to me now if you are ready to enter deal with me, I mean life trade, who knows, and I might just spear your life, $8,000 is all you need to spend. You will first of all pay $3,000 then I will send the tape of the person that want you dead to you and when the tape gets to you, you will pay the remaining $5,000. If you are not ready for my help, then I will have no choice but to carry on the assignment after all I have already being paid before now.

    Warning: do not think of contacting the police or even tell anyone because I will extend it to any member of your family since you are aware that somebody want you dead, and the person knows some members of your family as well.

    For your own good I will advise you not to go out once is 7pm until I make out time to see you and give you the tape of my discussion with the person who want you dead then you can use it to take any legal action. Good luck as I await your reply to this e-mail contact: [email protected]
