I enjoy messing with the email scam artists. Below is an email I received last week. The next post will be my response.


Happy New Year Dear Friend,

It is my humble pleasure to write this letter irrespective of the fact
that you do not know me. However, I got your name/company through your
country business directory here in my private search for a reliable and
trustworthy person that can handle such a confidential transaction of
this nature.

My name is Jude Estrada, son of the ex President of the Philippines
located in South East Asia. My father was impeached from office by a
backed uprising of mass demonstrators and the Senate. He is presently in
jail facing trial on
charges of corruption, embezzlement, and the mysterious charge of
plunder which might lead to life sentence.

Since his untimely demise the family has suffered a lot of harassment
from the regime that succeeded him. The regime government that came up
now, are made up of Estrada enemies. During my father's regime as
president of Philippines, My family realized some reasonable amount of
money from various contract deals that was successfully executed. We
decided to start making good use of this fund this year 2008.


Recently, All my families was banned from traveling outside Philippines
as a kind of house arrest. Although a lot of money has been recovered
from my family since the impeachment of my father from the power. There
are still huge sums of money in hard currencies saved with some
security fault houses outside Philippines total sum of US$24 Million
for safe keeping.

We have for some time been deliberating on how to invest this fund in a
confidential manner until we came to a conclusion to use it to buy
houses in your country and India hence I chose your country.
Therefore, you are to forward immediately the prices of houses in
highbrow areas in cities in your country for us to know how to put our
budget. This money US$24 Million is already in safe keeping and if your
conditions are good we will prepare you as the beneficiary of the total
fund through our foreign lawyer.

If you therefore agree to be the official Beneficiary, Only the
following is required from you: (1) Your Complete name and address (2)
Your phone and fax (3) A brief background information on you (CV)
Please you should keep this transaction with you as Top Secret and we
are prepared to do more business with you pending your approach toward
this project. Reply to this address: estradajude@zapak.com

Regards,
Jude Estrada

Dear Jude,

Happy New Year to you as well!
Is this for real? I've never won anything in my life so I'm a bit
skeptical. Sorry. If you promise it's for real, I'll get right to work
but it might take me a couple days.
What size of houses? How many bedrooms, bathrooms, basements etc? Is
there any chance I could end up with a house at the end of this whole
deal? Not for free, but really cheap or something? I'm 30 years old
and still live with my parents so I'd like to get out but can't afford
to on my own right now. I can only get on part time at McDonalds and
have repeatedly been denied promotion to Fry Cook. I think they won't
promote me because of my third ear, which I'm pretty sure is illegal.
It's barely noticeable anyway. That's why I got this part time job too
(toilets suck! And they smell like crap!!). Sorry I'm rambling - I tend
to do that a lot. So I guess you'll want to come to the states at some
point. I'll check with my mom to see if you can stay with me for a few
days. I do have bunkbeds so there's plenty of room. I'm used to being
on top; I hope that's cool with you. You have no idea how excited I am
right now! I'll probably have to take my pills early tonight; maybe not
all of them - but at least half of them, you know?! Since this is top
secret, is it really safe for me to give my personal info through email.
I'm pretty sure some of my coworkers look at my emails because they see
me as a threat. I can clean the women's bathroom faster than they can
clean just the urinals in the men's bathroom. Do you think it's safe to
quit McDonald's yet? So should we use code names rather than real names
from this point on? I like to go by Gertrude Four. I could call you
Gertude For. Get it? People would be all confused because the four and
for are different words but they sound the same. Pretty cool, huh?
LMFAO! Would it be safer to communicate with cell phones? Mine is
shielded so no one can tap into the frequency, not even the FBI. I
could tell you how to do that too. When you visit maybe mom can fix her
meatloaf. It rocks! What kind of vegetables do you like though? Crap!
It's time for pancakes so I gotta go. Let me know what the next step
is, Gertrude For.

Sincerely,
Gertrude Four

P.S. I'm very sorry to hear about your father. Do people in your
country get raped in prison? Getting raped is not right. On TV they
said that if you send him cigarrettes he can trade them for not getting
raped, but I don't know what it's like over there because I don't watch
much Phillipino tv. Sorry again about your dad.
