I love 419 gangs. They're the west african hustlers who send you emails and previously elaborate faxes asking for your help and offering to put vast sums into your bank account - usually to help an African prince.
Here's one I got from good old Don Smith aka some 14-year-old in Accra.
I am conducting a standard process investigation on behalf of our Bank an international banking conglomerate. This investigation involves a client and also the circumstances surrounding investments made by this client with our Bank. Our client died and nominated no successor in title over his account balance with our bank.
If you are interested, kindly get back to me for more details about our deceased client and how we can remit the fund to your account. On the receipt of the fund in your bank account, both of us will share the fund accordingly.
No no, thank you Don.
