Spam that takes the cake
Just received this beaut,
Dr. Mrs Luisa Ejercito Estrada
This letter may come to you as a surprise due to the fact that we have not met. The message could be strange but real, if you pay some attention to it. I could have notified you about it at least for the sake of your integrity. Please accept my apologies in bringing this message of goodwill to you, I have to say that I have no intention of causing you any pain or harm.
I am LUISA E.ESTRADA, the wife of Mr. JOSEPH ESTRADA the former President of Philippines presently in jail and facing trial on charges of corruption and embezzlement of public funds while in government. My husband was recently impeached from office by a backed uprising of mass demonstrators and the Senate. My husband is presently in jail and facing trial on charges of corruption, embezzlement, and the mysterious charge of plunder which might lead to death sentence. The present government is forcing my husband out of Manila to avoid demonstration by his supporters. During my husband’s regime as president of Philippine, I realized some reasonable amount of money from various deals that I successfully executed. I have plans to invest this money for my children’s future on real estate and industrial production. My husband is not aware of this because I wish to do it secretly for now.
Before my husband was impeached, I secretly transferred the sum of $18,000,000 million USD (Eighteen million United States dollars) out of
Philippines and deposited the money with a security firm that transports valuable goods and consignments through diplomatic means. I also declared that the consignment was solid gold and my foreign business partner owned it. I am contacting you because I want you to go to the security company and claim the money on my behalf since I have declared that the consignment belong to my foreign business partner. You shall also be required to assist me in investment in your country. I hope to trust you as a God fearing person who will not sit on this money when you claim it, rather assist me properly, I am willing to offer you 25% of the funds for your sincere assistance. When I receive your positive response I will let you know
where the security company is and also my son Carlito (Daniel) will contact you with the details of this project.
For now, let all our communication be by e-mail because my lines are right now connected to the Philippines Telecommunication Network services.
Please do send me your private telephone/ fax number so that we can have a smooth communication.
Thank you and God bless you and your family
DR. MRS LUISA EJERCITO ESTRADA
No thanks Luisa, I already watched The Spanish Prisoner, which is the proper name of this older-than-the-hills scam. Maybe these guys at 202-324-3000 would like to hear from you, though.
