Exclamation Check out this email, lol!

Is this guy serious? What a joke. Do people actually believe stuff like this?

Dear Sir/Madam,

I came to know you through my search for a reliable, transparent and
trustworthy person or partner to assist me execute a vital, private and
confidential business transaction as stated below, therefore I am very
glad
I have found you.

I am John Okon, a solicitor at-law; I am the personal attorney to one
of my
late client who used to work with an indigenous company here in my
country.
In summer 2002, my client, his wife and their three children were
involved
in an auto-crash while on a picnic-trip. Unfortunately, all occupants
of the
vehicle lost their lives.

Since then I have made several enquires to his embassy to locate any of
my
clients extended relatives and this has also proved unsuccessful. After
these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to track his last name
over
the Internet; to locate any exact matched surname hence I contacted
you.

I contacted you to assist in receiving and accommodating the money left
behind by my client before they get confiscated or declared
unserviceable by
the bank where these huge deposits were lodged. My deceased client had
an
account balance with his bank valued at about Twelve Million, Four
Hundred
Thousand United States Dollars (US$12,400,000.00), and I have been
issued a
notice as his attorney to provide his next of kin or have the account
confiscated.

Since I have been unsuccessful in locating my client's relatives; I now
seek
your consent to present you as the next of kin of my deceased client
since
you have the same last name so that the proceeds of his account Twelve
Million, Four Hundred Thousand United States Dollars (US$12,400,000.00)
can
be paid to you. You and I can then share the money 60% to me and 40% to
you.

If you are interested in this offer, then kindly reply this only
through my
confidential and private. Email:johnokon@msn.com.

All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us seeing this
project
through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a
legitimate/risk-free
arrangement that will protect you and me from any breach of the law.

I await your positive response. Please do not forget to include your
private
telephone numbers so that I can give you a call to discuss the matter
and we
can also get to know each other better.

Best regards,


MR.JOHN OKON.

Every week in the Crime Section of the paper there's a report of someone falling for one of these.

Anybody see the SNL (Eva Langoria was the host)skit about the "Spammie's", and awards show for best email spam? This was one of the winners...pretty funny skit, actually...
