Laeticia Ben


Another one who thanks, God, whoever she is.

Interestingly, it's written as a personal note to me, but the e-mail address said that she was sending it to thousands using a blind copy.

One out of five.

Dearest, One

Greetings to you. I thank God for coming across you and believe by the grace of God you will not turn down my request. My name is laeticia ben I am almost 20 years old girl now and i am from Bouake in Cote D'ivoire, west Africa.

I became an orphan last year when my father and my mother were murdered in Bouake in the northen part of Cote D'ivoire(Ivorie coast)my home town. I was in school when the rebel new force went on rampage and killed people in the town suspected for supporting the government of Gbagbo. I was taken from the school by

a good samaritan to Abidjanwhere I am now on refuge. I am now staying with the old woman I call aunty, she is 81 years old and she has been trying her best for me I am confused and i don't know what to do to claim my late father's deposit in security company here in Abidjan here.

He deposited a sum of ($7,000,000)(seven million) dollars only. This deposit was to be sent to his business partner in Europe but since the crisis they lost contact and I dont know about him and I dont

know about their transaction before he died.
I am appealing to you in the name of God to help me contact the Security Company where my late father deposited this fund as family valuables so that they can convey

the consignment to you in your country through their diplomatic means according to the security company Director and after you have received this consignment you will have to transfer it into your bank account as well as a safe place for me to move to after the

conclusion of this transaction. I believe you are a reliable person that will not sit on the money and will provide a safe place where I can move to continue my studies which is my priority in life because this civil war here has almost distablized everything and my education is suspended for my security reasons.

I promise to give you 20% of the total amount after the conclusion of the transaction. That will cover all your inconveniences or probably any expensis while helping me Please send to me your telephone no. and let me know if you can reliably keep this only thing I have left in life with you safely.Why i want to leave

here for western world where i can restart my life is because of everyday political and economic instability and civil unrest as well as looting and raping which is the order of the day now. Pls. if you know that you are going to be very honest with me do let me know by your email.

I wait to hear from you soon,
Yours faithfully,
laeticia ben

How to Test a Page is Indexed


The web site has been submitted to Google and the other search engines, but you don't seem to be getting any traffic.

Sometimes, this is because the pages have not been indexed yet, as search engines do sometimes take up to thirty or so days to get around to looking at your pages.

At other times, this may be because the page that is not getting indexed is not connected to the index page of the web site. This can be down to a coding mistake, but it can also be because the menu system you are using is not readable by one of the search robots.

There is a simple way to check if a page has been indexed.

Take a phrase of about eighty to a hundred characters in the page, that you feel may be fairly unique, add quotes to it and put it in the search box of the search engine. If I was searching for this message, I might use.

"At other times, this may be because the page that is not getting indexed"

Note the quotes, as these make sure that the phrase will be searched for in exactly the way it was entered.

If you don't find the page, then it has not been indexed.

It is also a good idea to set up a Google Alert for a new web site or page. this way you'll know when it has been indexed.

Another one out of five. Fraud.

Dear partner.
I sincerely come in good faith to you, with utmost assurance that you will never regret giving your attention to this mail at the end of the day. I am Mr. paul Lee. I'm a bank branch manager in one of the most popular bank here in asia, you will know me more as we go on.

Please i want us to know each other for a purpose, and that purpose is that, there is unclaimed deposit belonging to one of our foreign customers who died [8] eigth years ago, without any sign of sickness in plane crash. I personally have watched with kin interest to see any next of kin or beneficiary to this deposit but no one has come up for the claim of US$11.8M [ Eleven MILLION,EIGHT HUNDRED THOUSAND US DOLLARS] this money has been in our bank for a very long time, On further investigation, I found out that he died without making a WILL, and all attempts to trace his next of kin was fruitless.

I therefore made further investigation and discovered that Mr. owner did not declare any next of kin or relations in all his official documents, including his Bank Deposit paper work in my Bank. This sum of US$11,800,000.00 is still sitting in my Bank and the interest is being rolled over with the principal sum at the end of each year.

Be obviously informed that if this fund remain's here till the end of this year it will be transfered into the BANK TREASURY as unclaimed fund. Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you as a Foreigner to stand in as the next of kin, so that the fruits of this old man's labor will not get into the hands of some corrupt bank officials. Remember, any body can be the next of kin/relation since he did'nt mention anybody because of his accidental death. And my bank can not release this money if nobody apply for it.

We shall employ the service of an Attorney for drafting and notarization of the WILL and to obtain the necessary documents and letter of probate/administration in your favor to transfer the money into a bank account in any part of the world,which you will provide, i will then facilitate the transfer of this money to you as the beneficiary/next of kin. I will see to the whole things since I'm the manager of this branch, and I have taken the deposit slip and the deposit certificate from bank file. The money will be paid into your account for us to share as we agree.

There is no risk at all as all the paperwork for this transaction will be done by the Attorney, and by my position as a Branch Manager guarantees 100% successful execution of this transaction, i can also assure you that any body can be the next of kin. I expect your urgent communication, and let me know your mind.
best regards.
Mr. Lee.

Ryanair, easyJet and


We don't need a holiday, but we'll be trying to get away this weekend before the winter closes in.

So I spent an hour or so looking for cheap flights on Ryanair, easyJet and

You type in the dates, select a starter airport and then go through a load of suitable destinations.

easyJet were excellent in that every time you went back to the start page, all you had to do was change the destination and click search.

This sort of worked with, but they kept going from September to October on occasions. How annoying!

But with Ryanair you have to start again with everything. Grrr!

Razaq Samiu


He says it may come as a surprise to get this letter. I don't think so as I get a lot from crooks.

One out of five.


This letter may come to you as a surprise due to the fact that we have not yet met. I have to say that I have no intentions of causing you any pains so i decided to contact you through this medium.

As you read this, I don't want you to feel sorry for me, because, I believe everyone will die someday. My name is Razaq Samiu, a merchant in Dubai, in the U.A.E. I have been diagnosed with prostate and esophageal Cancer that was discovered very late due to my laxity in caring for my health. It has defiled all form of medicine and right now, I have only about a few months to live according to medical experts.

I have not particularly lived my life so well, as I never really cared for anyone not even myself but my business. Though I am very rich, I was never generous, I was always hostile to people and only focus on my business as that was the only thing I cared for. But now I regret all this as I now know that there is more to life than just wanting to have or make all the money in the world. I believe when God gives me a second chance to come to this world I would live my life a different way from how I have lived it. Now that I know my time is near, I have willed and given most of my properties and assets to my immediate and extended family members and as well as a few close friends and Schools in the UAE. I have decided to give alms to charity organizations, as I want this to be one of the last good deeds I do on earth. So far, I have distributed money to some charity organizations in the U.A.E, England and Ireland. Now that my health has deteriorated so badly, I cannot do this my self any more. I once asked members of my family to close one of my accounts and donate the money, which I have there to charity organization in Bulgaria, they refused and kept the money to themselves. Hence, I do not trust them anymore, as they seem not to be contended with what I have left for them. The last of my money which is the huge cash that I deposit in a bank in England Uk.

I want you to help me collect this deposit and dispatched it to charity organizations and let them know that it is I Razaq Samiu that is making this generous donation.

I am writing this from my laptop computer in my hospital bed in England where I wait for my time to come. If you are interested to help me i will give you more information about this like the amount that i deposited in the bank and Contact of the bank so you can contcat them. I will also send you a picture of my self when i am on my laptop in the hospital.

Note that you will take 20% out of the funds and give 80% to the charity organizations. I pray that God uses you to support and assist me with good heart God be with you.

If you can help respond back to me on my private email:

Razaq Samiu

Rev. Peter George


Another fraud appealing to my religion.

That doesn't work, as I'm a hard-hearted atheist.

One out of five.

Dearest friend in the Lord,

It took me time and the divine intervention of the Lord to write you this mail as we have never had any correspondence before. My name is Rev. Father Peter George a Catholic priest, I am very much interested in a relationship with you for our mutual benefits as I have access to what is needed but lack the experience and not in a position to perfect its use.

There is an urgent need for me to contact you as I recently have been granted an opportunity to have access to US$8,500,000.00 (Eight Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars Only). Access to this fund is made available by a woman, who happens to be a member of my parish. She is well known in this community.

Unfortunately she has been living and struggling with breast cancer for almost 2 years now. Though she is unmarried, she has a 12year old daughter and I have been responsible for her care since the outbreak of her horrible dilemma. She has been through a first operation, and though she is to undergo a final operation within the next few days, the doctors have not given her much of a chance to live. She is not aware of this fact and she stills remains hopeful that something positive can be done in her case. Based on my last discussion with her yesterday afternoon on the future of her daughter should she not be so lucky, she insisted that the fund should be invested.

Unfortunately I'm definitely not in a position to run things, which is why I seek your assistance in taking control of managing the fund. I have resolved with her on an agreement that will be drawn up by you on a yearly charge that will be paid to you for taking control and managing the fund while half of the fund will be given for the development of cancer treatment centre while the rest sum will remain with you for the up keep of her daughter. I wish you could be of assistance to this course and I'd like to add that sometimes I receive unsolicited mails, so I hope my mail doesn’t come as an embarrassment to you, but if it does please kindly accept my apologies.

Awaiting your response,

Yours in Christ,

Rev Peter George

This one must be fraud. He's invoking God. About half the frauds do. God must be very annoyed at her name being taken in vain.

But he's got the date of the London bombing as the 12th July 2004 instead of the 7th July 2005. Or did I forget something.

I do like the bit that says :-

Another Record


Yesterday, the daily spam record was broken again.

It was 14611.

Over fifty seven percent of the identifiable spam was for drugs like Viagra, Cialis and Anatrim.


Web Electronic Industry and First and ...


These two scams seem to be related, as the junk used to fool spam filters is the same.

Both also started with the same title.

Serious business in a sphere of financial services. No investment reqired.

If these scammers are all related, why don't governments crack down on them?

Because in some countries they provide a good source of foreign investment?

The Fraudulent Bishop


Even the Church is getting in on the scams.

Nought out of five. He's also using two e-mail addresses.

It's funny but these scammers often seem to invoke God. Is this because they believe in some supreme deity who gives them some sort of authority to be crooks? Or are they appearing to the weak amongst us who seek succour in religion?

From; Bishop, Theodore Bonn,
Ouidah, Catholic Cathedral
Republique Du Benin

Beloved ,

This is Bishop Theodore Bonn, from Benin Republique, I am the Bishop Controlling the Whole Catholic Arch Diocess here in Cotonou Benin

I am Sending you this Message in Respect to a Pakistanian Citizen ALHAJI Abdullah Nabeel , a great Industrialist in Benin Republique, who Invested the sum of US$ (Ten Million United States Dollars Only) in a Finance Firm here in Cotonou Benin Republique, Unfortunately, he lost his life in a plane crash here which Happened on December 26 2003 in Benin International airport, Including his family all perished in the crash. You can read more of this news about the crash on visiting the web site.

We are seeking your co-operation to claim this fund as all efforts made both at the Church here and his Fellow Pakistani an Citizens to Locate his Relatives Proved abortive. I used to pray for him when he was alive though he was a Moslem but I converted him to Christian Religion .He worshipped with us at the Catholic Church here in Cotonou and as a result we developed a Profound Family relationship. Most of his belongings, he left them with me for safe keep, among them, all his Business registration documents, His information with The Finance Firm for his USD 10,000,000.00 Deposit

Now that we cannot locate any of his relation, as God directed me we decided that this money be distributed to Charitable homes any where in the world. We are now looking for a trust worthy person or persons who will come and claim this fund and distribute it to charitable homes, the motherless Babies homes, Widows Etc.

Considering my position as a Bishop, I cannot go for a claim because of my position but, i will give you all the required Support to see to your claim a success since you would be using this fund for the less Privileged in Your Country. This is in line with our Meeting before our contact to you after praying and fasting .You can contact me directly by Email but be Sure when this fund finally gets to you, you’ll use it accordingly as indicated here in this message. Note, No Body Can Fake this Information therefore this message is for you only. Keep it Highly Confidential please.
Send me your Phone Number, Your address and your Full names, if you are Faithful enough.We await your Urgent Response

All Web Site Owners Should Use This


I'm very suspicious of this innocent looking message. It links to a page defined by an IP Address. It could be something that downloads a virus.

When you get messages like this that don't use a sensible web site and also ones signed like this with Simon, but from an e-mail address named Tim, don't click them.

Do you own a web site?
If so would you like a web site rankings report, that tells you where you site is positioned in the Search Engines on your chosen keyword search phrases.
It would probably be very useful to know what people are typing into the search engines to find your products or services, we also offer a keyword analsis for your web site.
Hope this will be of benefit to you.
Best Regards,

Highest Daily Spam Total


I started logging spam in August 2006. I did it before that, but not as scientifically as I do now, so that is the real start date.

When I started the level was around 2,000 messages a day. Now it is averaging out at around 10,000.

But yesterday the total number of spam messages was 11,910.

John Kuma


They keep coming don't they!

One out of five.

From: Mr.john kuma

Cote d'Ivoire.Abidjan

Dear Freind

Don't be surprised to receive this letter from me since you don't know me in person. For the purpose of introduction I am Mr.john kuma from Zimbabwe the son of Chief Megan kuma who was murdered in the land dispute in Zimbabwe by the agents of the ruling government of President ROBERT MUGABE for his alleged support and sympathy for the opposition MDC PARTY led by the minority white famers.

My father was among the few black Zimbawean rich famers murdered in cold blood by the war vetrans backed by the government. Before the death of my father, he went Abidjan Cote D'Ivoire to deposit the sum of US$13.5M with one of the banks in Abidjan, as if he knew the looming danger in ZIMBABWE.

The money was deposited in one of the prime bank here in Abidjan for purchase of new machinery and chemicals for the farms and the establishment of new farms in Lesotho and Swaziland. This Land problem arose when President Robert Mugabe introduced a new land act Which wholly affects the white rich farmers and some few blacks vehemently condemned the "Modus operandi" adopted by the government.

This resulted to rampart killing and Mob actions.I am staying in Abidjan as an Asylum seeker, I have decided to transfer this money to a foreign country where we can invest it. I am faced with the dilemma of investing this amount of money in Abidjan Africa for fear of encountering the same experience in future since both countries have the same political policy/law does not allow investment hence I am seeking for an asylum or refugees.

I must let you know that this business is 100% risk free and the nature of your business does not necessary matter. So if you are willing to assist me , I have agreed to give you 25% of the total money,70% will be for me ,the remaining 5% will be mapped out for all expenses, we might incur during the transaction .

Therefore if you are willing and interested to render the needed assistance, endeavor to reply through urgently for imediate action to commence.I also need your private telephone and fax numbers for easy communication. Remember that this is highly confidential and success of this business depends on how secret it is kept.

Expecting your reply soonest.

Best regards,
(john kuma ).

A Classic Nigerian


One out of five.

The Desk Of:ALHAJI.USMAN BABA DANSUKI (Chairman human/material resources Manager)Nigerian National. PetrolleumCorporation (Nnpc) Lagos, Nigeria


I have decided to contact you by E-mail due to the urgency of this transaction.Let me start by introducing myself properly to you. I am ALHAJI.USMAN BABA DANSUKI, human/material resources manager,of NNPC/SHELL petroleum development cooperation in joint venture(NNPC/SPDC).I got your e-mail address through an internet marketing firm while searching for a reliable and reputable person to handle this transaction,which involves the transfer of the sum of Sixty million United States dollars to a reliable account abroad. Your role became paramount due to the fact that there are lots of restrictions binding civil servants here and we are not allowed to operate foreign accounts.

This amount was secured from excess oil sales from Nigeria crude oil. The sum of $1.2 billion oil windfall was released by the NNPC and shell petroleum development company for the month of august 2002 by The Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC). Crude oil price was peg at $22.00 per barrel and fortunately for oil producing countries like Nigeria, there was rises in oil price to about $27.00 and $28.00 per barrel and as a result there was excess oil sales and I believe you would be aware of this rise in Oil price in last two years. Out of this $1.2 billion excess oil funds, my colleagues and myself Because of our position in the NNPC and shell Petroleum Development Company diverted the sum of Sixty million United state dollars we want to transfer into your account, which is in the excess crude oil sales.Your Role,To enable the bank transfer this US$60M secured into your bank account, You will be acting as one of our contractor who have executed a government co!
ntract here in Nigeria and beneficiary of the funds,and this money will be paid In your favour.

I will guide you on how we will achieve this.Note, the reason for the transfer of these Sixty Million Us dollar into your account is because of our incapability as Government officials to own a foreign account.
