You would be SO surprised at the kind of people who actually DO fall for stupid stuff like this. I had an employee once who received a similar email from her "long lost grandfather" in Germany and she stood to inherit millions! There was no amount of convincing her otherwise! Her dad quit his job and they sold everything to fly to Germany. C.R.A.Z.Y. You know what really happened!

Obviously, someone does, or it wouldn't be worth the time and effort to send them out.

Jules said...

Ugh, I get these all of the time and they drive me insane. I really hope that people don't fall for this.

These things are so obviously scams. The fact that someone actually falls for them worries me!

I get these at my work email all the time. Years ago when I worked at a bank there was this old lady that fell for one of these scams and kept coming in to get cash advances off of her credit card. We all kept telling her that it was a scam and to stop doing it, but she would not listen. So sad!

Don't forget us "little people" when you come into all this wealth!


Seriously - how aggravating are those emails!?

Helene said...

Do people really fall for that stuff??? That's amazing.

OMG...I just inherited 500K from that same guy. I only had to send her 5K in advance taxes. I'm rich I tell you, rich beyond my wildest dreams!

My Name is Tammy and I now have over $4 million after all of the wonderful people have contacted me from around the world!
Apparently, my phishing boat has come in and they really LOVE contacting me through my business accounts.
Yes, I am internationally wealthy, however-my buddy Norton, doesn't like to let me click their buttons, pffft!

These people need to be strung up by their toes, they so annoy me....

Miss Janice said...

Unfortunately, somebody, somewhere, right now...is falling for this e-mail! I get them also:)

Molly Lou Gifts said...

I have gotten these everyday for weeks now. I used to get them and then stopped for a long time.

Here is the question...DOES ANYONE ACTUALLY RESPOND? If they do, then they deserve to lose their money for being that flipping stupid.
