Frankly, I’m disappointed. This 419 spam from “Ferdous Siddiq” isn’t even trying. Where’s the back story? Where’s all the stuff about civil wars and needing to smuggle money out of the country? Where is there any indication why he selected me for this honour? What are the odds of anyone falling for this? (Answer: depressingly, still comparatively high.)
I am the Director in charge of Auditing section Bank in the Group Bank of African, I need your urgent assistance in transferring the sum of $17.3 million immediately to your account.

I will send you full details on how the business will be executed and also note that you will have some percentage of the above mentioned amount if you agree to help me execute this business,

Now permit me to ask some few questions.

1. Can you honestly help me as your partner?
2. Can i completely trust you?
3. What percentage of the total amount in question will be good for you after the money is transfer to your country?
4. Can you help me to come over to your country and further my educational carrier?
5. Can you assure me of the confidentiality of this transaction, So that when coming in to your country there would not be focus of attention.

Waiting for your urgent reply and God bless you
Mr, Ferdous
I give this lacklustre example 2 out of 10, especially when far more vigorous efforts are being made to grab my attention and entice me to download trojans and God knows what else. Such as:

The message attached to this last was: “Could you use an extra $15OO to $35OO rlght now? Many see theres ln the flrst 48hrs but you must call my message llne to hear my brelf message on how thls ls posslble and how you can do lt to”. The only celebrity berries I can think of are a couple of members of the Munch Bunch, the Ribena berries and, if you stretch a point, maybe the California raisins. I’ll leave it to you to decide which one this came from.

That’s a harsh claim. What if we worked at it?

Is that really true about “the most important thing”? Are some people’s priorities truly that skewed? Still, it’s nice to know that these dealers guarantee that your watch will stay with you whatever the time is, which must be a blessed relief if you’ve been unlucky enough to own fickle timepieces in the past. In fact there seems generally to be some confusion over what watches can be usefully compared to:

Or even exactly how to use them:

And who could fail to be charmed by this opening gambit from “the lonely woman Marina”, apparently a Russian lady who hope she can become for me friend:
Hello not the man familiar to me!
