Spammers make me giggle

You know, I don’t know many people who couldn’t use and extra few dollars.  I don’t think I know anyone who’d fall for offers like these.

Li Zoahang (zzaohangz@kimo.com) wants my help –

I’m Li Zaohang, and I work with Bank of China.
I need your assistance in moving a sum of $28.370 Million Dollars from my Bank.
Kindly get back if interested.

Wow, really?  Sad attempt at scamming.  Where’s the imagination?  The enticement?  Sorry, throwing a huge dollar amount at me isn’t enough reason for me to consider giving you my information or breaking the law.

Michael McNeill (ppc@snru.ac.th) went with the tried and true soldier stationed abroad approach –

I am Sgt. Michael McNeill, a US Marine Sgt. Serving in the 1st Battalion, 6th Marine Regiment. I am presently in Afghanistan. I have summoned up courage to contact you for an assistance to evacuate some cash eighteen million dollars (18,000,000.00) to the States or any safe country.

SOURCE OF MONEY:
Some money in various currencies was discovered and concealed in barrels with piles of weapons and ammunition at a location near one of the Taliban Caves during a rescue operation and it was agreed by all party present that the money will be shared among us.

I will provide you with more details upon the receipt of your response.

Respectfully,
Sgt. Michael McNeill
United States Marine Corps.
Afghanistan

Sigh.  We all know that looting is a possibility in any wartime, but yeah, no thanks.

Gillian and Adrian Bayford (info@usa.net) want to just give me money.  With the Google Management Team’s approval –

We are Gillian and Adrian Bayford. My wife and I won the biggest Euro Millions lottery prize of £148 Million GBP and we just commenced our Charity Donation and we will be giving out a cash donation of £1,500,000.00 GBP  to 5 lucky individuals and 10 charity organizations from any part of the world.
