In all tribute to the Thebes, the Master at funny diatribes and clever obsevations, the below email was received at work. Verbatim as received, and it's hilarious. A new "low" in desperation even for the Nigerians..... Ole' Lucky there is obviously new to the "great game"....


Greetings !
Dearest one, Please with Due respect and humility, I got your contact from
the (International web site directory) We know that this is not the normal
way to contacts someone because of the too much scam in the internet but
we did it because of its confidenciality.

I am Lucky Johnson, the only Son of late Mr. Wilfred Johnson. My father
was a very wealthy cocoa merchant in Abidjan, the economic capital of
Ivory Coast before he was poisoned to death by his business associates, my
mother died on the 28 November 1998 according to my father he took me and
my younger Siter so special because we are motherless.

Before the death of my father on 29th April 2006 in a private hospital
here in Abidjan. He secretly called me on his bedside and told me that he
has the sum of $5.000.000 (Five Million Dollars) left in a suspense
account in a Bank here in (Abidjan),the economic capital of (Ivory Coast)
that he used my name as his only Son for the next of kin in deposit of the
fund. He also explained to us that it was because of this wealth and some
huge amount of money his business associates supposed to balance him from
the deal they had that he was poinsed, that I should seek for a God
fearing foreign partner in a country of my choice where we will transfer
this money and use it for investment purpose, (such as real estate
management) for our future hope.

Please We are honourably seeking your assistance in the following ways.

To provide a Bank account where this money would be transferred to and
also promise us that you will remain honest and serve as the guardian of

Wow Groomlake, I knew you and Lucky Johnson were close and he has never let you down but this smells funny. You better not let the wife find out what Lucky Johnson is trying to get you into, she would want you to break off anything to do with Mr Johnson. [:|]

Aaah, DTEL, want to edit your response?Wink

Thank you, I had used one letter wrong which changed the whole thing, very sorry it really was an accident.

Thanks [:$]

I wouldn't want to get Amy or Marshal mad at me, one simple letter made it much worse, a bad time and place to mistype a single letter
