Hello Mr. Alfhonse,running a scam!

I got one with a different twist. In my case it's someone who feel victim to a Tsunami disaster in 2004 and was found dead by the side of the road leaving a bank account worth $12,500,000 (yeah right). I e-mailed back a phoney telephone number to a Mr Nmauwlolo Atevi and he felt that was verification enough to send me the bank form to complete (he obviously never verified the phone number, too big of a rush to get his hands on that 12 million...LOL). When I raised additional concerns regarding releasing my personal information to a complete stranger this was his pathetic attempt to gain my trust;

Dear Phillip,

Thank you for your urgent response to my message and my sincere assurance to you is that you can never regret doing this business with me.As it may interest you to know Phillip La,I will like to let you know that I am a KNIHG is the Catolic church and will not like to do any thing that will harm or my family.I am a family man with Wife and Two children,One boy and a Girl.What will I gain to paly with my future?

Going through the first message which I sent to you regarding this transaction,I explained every thing to you and I hope that you read my mail well before getting back to me.At list,you have showed me that you are willing to assist me.Comming to your questions,

(How did you get my e-mail address) Frankling speaking Mr Phillip,I prayed very hard asking God to give me a reliable contact to do this business with and I was elated the time I saw your email and decided to propose the business to you.I know that it may come to you as a suprise mail but all I need from you is to treat this business transaction with the absolut attention it deserves to enable us achieve our aim in this business.You have to beer it at the back of your mind that sincerity is the key to the success of every business transaction and that is what I need from you too.As you know,it is any person that I present to the Bank as the real next of Kin will authomatical recieve the fund into his account without any other question.I am here to back you until you recieve this fund into your account so you have nothing to bother.

You should go ahead and send the Application to the bank as I adviced you because we have no time left.As you know,the year is comming to an end and I need this fund to be into your account before the bank closed for the year.I will be waiting to hear from you.Remain blessed.

Mr Nmauwlolo Atevi

I sent a reply and ask for additional contacts to verify (i.e. senior bank official's contact info; high ranking officials at the municipality that positively identified this poor sole and issued his death certificate AND, since he will be performing a service for me (technically being hired by me...HAA) I requested all the company names, supervisor names, position duration of employment and salary history of all his employers for the past 12 years. Should he provide that false information, then I will need a certified copy of his batismal certificate from the Catholic Church he belongs to. By then his time frame will have run out. May as well get a laugh out of these jokers at their expense.
