Please Take My Princess

For the first time in the multitude of E-mail scam letters I get, I’ve been contacted by a Princess. Now I like all of you I’m sure have won an imaginary fortune from Google, Yahoo, Microsoft, UK, Irish, BMW, Toyota, et al lotteries. We’ve read the sad stories from the Mohammed Abdul, Kipkalya, Akala, Badar, and innumerable Nigerian families all wishing to have us take their fortunes for reasons too ridiculous to repeat. Now, I have a Princess with an E-mail tagline of latipher2010 wanting a relationship with me while I invest her fortune and take 30% off the top plus interest. Wow! Who knew I had achieved such worldly fame. Since I’ve already won imaginary billions of dollars and I have a wife who knows how to use a knife, I think I’ll have to pass on the Princess’s generous offer. If any of you others want a taste of royalty though please feel free to write my friend the Princess.  :)

“Dear Friend,

How are you today,i hope fine?I am a female student from University of Burkina-Faso, Ouagadougou. I am 22 yrs old. I will love to have a long-term relationship with you and to know more about you. I would like to build up a solid foundation with you in time coming if you can be able to help me in this transaction. Well, my father died earlier 1 year ago and left I and my junior brother behind. He was a king, which our town citizens titled him over sixteen years before his death.I was a princess to him and I am the only person who can take care of his wealth now because my junior brother is still young and my late mother is also late two years ago before the death of my Late father. He left the sum of USD 5,500, 000.00 dollars (Five Million, Five Hundred Thousand US Dollars)in a security company.

This money was annually paid into my late fathers account from Gold Exploring companies operating in our locality for the compensation of youth and community development in our jurisdiction. I don't know how and what I will do to invest this money somewhere in abroad, so that my father's kindred will not take over what belongs to my father and our family, which they were planning to do without my present because I am a female as stated by our culture in the town. Now, I urgently need your humble assistance to move this money from the security company to your bank account after which i come over to meet with you. and I strongly believe that by the grace of God, you will help me invest this money wisely.

I am ready to pay 30% of the total amount to you if you help us in this transaction and another 10% interest of Annual After Income to you, for handling this transaction for us, which you will strongly have absolute control over. If you can handle this project sincerely and also willing to assist me in lifting this fund,i need your picture and your details.Do send it to me before tomorrow morning.This is my home address,From Burkina Faso in West Africa.Home Address: Rue 54 ave. LOUDIN;”

This crap must snare a few truly stupid people otherwise why would the most well known scam continue to be tried?

Thats why I admire the scam baiters who string the scammer along with bogus checks and wild goose chases.
Like sending the scammer a western union money gram as requested. Except its mistakenly sent to a western union branch 300 miles from the scammer and the check is for the minimum 1.00 and not the several thousand requested.

You're right, whydibuy, it must work on some. Believing you can get something for nothing is a costly human frailty.
