Like many, I receive a fair amount of spam daily and have methods to deal with it, but every now and then one is marked but still available to me. One just came which was in its own way so funny as to be worth sharing. But, remember this: if it seems too good to be true, it is too good to be true. My comments are included.
Hello Dear , [the first giveaway, I’m no ‘Dear’ and if this salutation were based on documents with my name, you’d think my name would be used]
[Person explains who they are and how they came into possession of my $$$ and how they’d like to help me]
I do not intend to work here all the days of my life, I can release this fund to you if you can certify me of my security, and how I can run away from this Nigeria if I do this, because if I don't run away from this country after I made the transfer, I will be Seriously in trouble and my life will be in danger. ......
I will clean up the tracer and destroy your file, after which I will run away from Nigeria to meet with you. If you are interested.... You should ... also re confirm your banking details, so that there won't be any mistake.
This person clearly wants to 'run away'. I hope no one was reeled in, but given past scams, no doubt someone think's they are this person's Dearie and will respond.
