I am very harrassed by receiving so many junks on my emails.
It seems to me the senders of these junk mails do NOT have any other jobs except to trick other people.
Just check this one that I received it today:

Dear Friend,

I am Barrister Matthew Baker, an attorney at law in London. A deceased
client of mine, by name Alh. Slamet Hassan died in Banda Aceh in
Indonesia with his wife and family as a result of the deadly Tsunami.

Please log to this website for more about the Tsunami
I am contacting you to help assist me in ensuring that the funds lodged
by my client with a Financial Institution Abroad, the Financial
Institution did not decleared unclaimed hence my reason for this
contact to you.

The Financial Institution has issued me a notice to contact the next of
kin, or the funds will be confiscated.

My proposition to you is to seek your consent to present you as the
next-of-kin and beneficiary of my late client, so that the proceeds of
this funds can be paid to you, Then we can share the amount on a
mutually agreed-upon percentage.

All legal documents to back up your claim as my client's next-of-kin
will be provided. All i require is your honest cooperation to enable us
see this transaction through.

This will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect
you from any breach of the law. If this business proposition offends
your moral values, do accept my apology. Please contact me at once to
indicate your interest.Via this email: matt12_baker at

However if you are willing to assist me in this venture i will
establish a verbal telephone communication with you and bring you into
a much better picture of the situation.

Best Regards,
Barrister Matthew Baker.

I regularly get the Nigerian ones but haven't ever gotten one about the tsunami.

Mikey - I'd forgotten about that site. Thanks for the reminder. Got to say, the scammers take a lickin' and keep in tickin'!!

Speaking of junk, all my TP notifications have been landing in my Yahoo junk folder lately. Grrr... I've been flagging them as "not spam" (what a weird noun!) so hopefully that will clear things up!

To: eliza_akaego1 at

It is my pleasure to write you after much consideration, since I can not be able to see you face to face at first, please I need your help. I am Eliza Akaego, the only Daughter of late diouf Akaego, from Cote d'Ivoire (I am 22years of age.)

My father was a reputable Gold merchant in Abidjan , Cote d'Ivoire before his untimely death.After his business trip to Tunisia,to nagociate on a cocoa and gold business he wanted to invest in Tunisia, a week after he came back from Tunisia, he got an accident with my mother of which my mother died instantly but my father died five days after in a private hospital. On that faithful afternoon, I didnt know that my father was going to leave me after I had earlier lost my mother, but before he gave up the ghost, it was as if he knew he was going to die.

He my father, (MAY HIS SOUL REST IN PERFECT PEACE) he called me to
his bed side and told me that he deposited the sum of ($6.m) Six Million US Dollars in a bank here in Cote D' Ivoire.That the money was meant for his cocoa and Gold business he wanted to establish in Tunisia, according to my father he deposited the money in a fixed suspense account using my name as the next of kin, He instructed me to seek for a reliable and trust worthy business partner for my life time investment abroad. Now I have succeeded in locating the deposit

documents and the bank where this money is here in Abidjan,Cote d`Ivoire.Due to war in my country Cote d'Ivoire, I am now seeking for your assistance to help me transfer this money out from my country Cte dIvoire to your account abroad so that we should invest it in any meaningful and lucrative business in your country because this is my only hope in life. I am willing to offer you 15% of the total fund if only youcan help me out of my present predicament.

I honourably seek your assistance in the following ways (1.) To provide a bank account where this money can be transfered into.(2.) To make arrangements for me to come over to your country after the successful transfering of this money into your account, to come and further my education.

(3.) To help invest this money in a profitable business since I am only 22yrs of age and do not know much about business.(4) To sponsor me transfer this money into your account,(5). I want you to promise me that you are not going to betray me after the money gets into your account.The worst part of it is that my uncle is trying to kill me because i refused to hand him over the documents covering this money, He has sold all my father's

landed properties including his cars which rightful belong to me and now he want me to hand over the banking document of my father in my possesion which i refused.Now he said that he will have this money by all means even if it means killing me, so because of this I ran away from home and hide in a hotel,pending when this money will be transfered so that i can leave the country for my safty.Please,consider my proposal and get back to me soon including your direct telephone number so we can talk.Thank's and God bless you.

Yours sincerely,
