Dear Miss Kevlin,
I would be happy to assist you in your dread hour of God Bless need. Because I, too, am the daughter of a wealthy chief (aren’t we all these days?) I have need of transferring the sum of 24 million thirty thirteen thousand dollars (US$45,9267,001.6) from my rightful earnings as the heiress to my late father’s ping pong estate.
Please be so kind as to send all bank information (written on cocktail napkins to be safe from bank authorities) so I can give you 150% of this money. I ask for nothing in return except good agreement to come to your country of my choice, as i am a girl of 14 and in seek of a foreign partner for my business purpose of lucrative business deals – anything but ping pong, which as you can see I tire of. Maybe we are discuss ways for me to spend my wealth that will make my late father mad.
Thanks and looking forward to hearing from you business partner!
I saw your contact during my comprehensive search for a business partner,I sincerely apologize if i am interfering on your privacy.
I contacted you regarding a legitimate business transaction involving the supply of an herbal medicine called Achi herbal roots (kanamrutakadugandha) from India. If my proposal disregards your moral and ethic values please accept my sincere apology.
These herbal roots are used for the treatment of general deceases in livestock animals in our company. Presently our company is buying this herbal root from Kenya at the rate of $150 US dollars for a five grams packet. Recently i discovered that the same herbal root can be found in India at the rate of $100 US dollars for a five grams packet and I don’t want our company to know about this new source; else i will be out of the business.
I am looking for a foreign partner who can transact and invest on this business with me based on trust. We (you & me) can buy these herbal roots at the rate of $100 US dollar from the local dealer in India and supply to our company at least $200 US dollars per packet and then share the profit. If you are interested and willing to invest on this business with me I will give you the contact of the local dealer in India then I will inform you how we can proceed .
This business will not affect your present occupation; it would be additional source of income beside your specialization.
If you are interested, get back to me as soon as possible. On receipt of your positive response, I will give you more information.
I look forward to your urgent response.
Good Day Dr. Andywest. My name is GilbertSullivan. I am intriged by your business proposal of kanamrukadunanda packets. I however have a much better business proposal for you, and I sincerely apologize if it affects your morals. My company here in the United Mistakes sells sells wooden nickels at a reduced price to homeless people on the streets of major American cities. The homeless peoples use the wooden nickels to invest in sock puppets which they sells for several million of dollars US ($USD several millions) and give me a modest cut of 17% of the profits.
I am in need of a random, unknown email scam artist for a business partner to shake down further homeless peoples for these transactions. The profit to you would be significant – 15% on the dollar, between 300,000 and 475,000 dollars per month, except for January, when it snows.
I apologize if you are not interested in making this easy money. It will not affect your present email scam business, but would purely be on the side transactions that will reap huge rewards of cash.
If you are interested, please email me very quickly so I may give you the more information that you need for this lucrative business partnership.
I urgently await your urgent response, most urgently!
See you soon my friend,

Dear Eric Indiana.
Pleased to introduce, first of all. I am an officer of the Bureau of the West African Monetary Fund. I apologize as this letter may have come to you in dismay for reasons of apathy. However,I came to you in absolute goodwill. I want to further let you know that I got your contact while surfing through the net for a honest & reliable partner with whom to help us execute the following deal.
As a matter of fact i solicit for your kind understanding and cooperation. There is this sum of nine million,seven hundred & thirty thousand USD, which we need to transfer out asap to any foreign account outside Lome-Togo here, I am hereby imploring you to help us nominate your bank account for the purpose of this fund transfer and you shall be adequately rewarded.I would also appreciate your advise on any good investment oppurtunity in your area.
If interested and willing to help, please email me back as soon as possible.
There are so many Africans asking to transfer millions of USD dollars into my bank account that I’ve had to start a line, or a cue as your former rulers call it. Right now, my bank account is stuffed so full of African cash that it will explode if I add any more. As soon as more room becomes available in my bank account, I will contact you with the necessary account information so that you can deposit your paltry nine million bucks.
I do not wish to offend your kind apathy or goodwill hunting, but only nine million dollars? Surely you have a bit more money you can transfer to my account. Just the other day, Dr. Samual Bezentoo transfered over 45 million dollars out of Zaire, and that was less than half of what the average orphaned African princess transfers. Could you scrape up a bit more cash, at least in the teens of millions, say 14 million USD?
