Ok, I thought I would share this with everyone... Do the scammers that do this email crap about lottery, people dieing and leaving money, etc; think we are really that stupid?

Come on! They come up with some story thats a world event, and give a link to the news article on CNN or related, then they expect we think it's real...

I'd just like to hope that no one out there falls for this crap more than once.

Here's my latest scam email, post yours! These are actually funny if you read them.... I'd like to see some of the other funny ones posted up please~~~ LMAO

cannot keep it further as my conscience reminds of my duties as one who believes in equity and fair play, my boss and some of his colleagues
from several other ministries who are assigned with the duty of transferring this money to you have conspired together to divert your
fund to another account and the strategy they employed was by demanding several charges from you,all the demand are illegal just to frustrate
you to abandon your funds.My boss is currently working with the finance minister,attorney general, and local prostitutes of the federation and some many commercial
banks chief executives to perfect his evil activities.
He has car parts in almost every countries like london,spain,holland taiwan, hongkong, indonesia etc.
This will then open an avenue for them to tag your payment as unclaimed payment and will have it transfer to their own coded account
overseas.As a matter of fact, my boss (Prof. Charles C. Soludo) the Executive Governor Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and his colleagues
instructed me to change your payment details with the one they have just nominated for immediate transfer.they will frustrate you for ever
because they will never do the right thing since the quest for too much wordly gains has blinded his sence(spelling error by a doctor???) of reasoning.i am incharge(spelling error by a doctor???) of
crediting comptroller to infuse all those information but i am purposely delaying as my mindset does not accept such evil.
I can release this fund to you if I am sure that I will be protected because immediately I release it, I will have to leave office,if I do
not my life will be in danger. This money will be transferred to their private account on before any moment from now. If you are willing to
get your payment direct into your account or any other means, call or email me and reconfirm your account particulars,other related
information if you chooses other legitmate(spelling error by a doctor???) ways and your contact details immediately on the receipt of this message. At the receipt of
this letter kindly call me or you forward your confidential cell phone number to me but dont(spelling error by a doctor???) expose it even those you are currently dealing
with both locally and internationally are agents of my boss so desist from them or you will remain poor in your life.
Kindly consider this secret information as highly privileged and should be kept till the end of time as having it divulged is a great risk on
my side. it will interested, do not bother to reply, otherwise your prompt response will do you a lot of good by having the right things
done in your payment files and documents which was irregularized (spelling error by a doctor???)by unknown crooks.
Looking forward to your immediate response.

I use gmail, so all my junk actually goes to the junk box. At work we have the trend micro whatchamacallit and we have a pretty large library of phrases and stuff with regular expressions and whatnot to filter out the crap.

Just having a filter isn't good enough, you have to keep up with updating it. Sounds like alot of work, but if you keep on top of it you only ever have a tiny bit of work to do in one day, VS an aggrevating day of cleaning up a pile of spam and shocking the filter with a massive update.

I use yahoo, and everything gets blocked that I see as spam, except for one thing, and every time the heading just says "Canadian Pharmacy" ... and there's one image attachment, for some reason Yahoo doesn't want to block it from coming in ... I think I need to phone them and ask them nicely to add that heading top the block list ...
