    Expect an influx to a South Pacific island:

    "Dear Friend,

    How are you? I hope all is well with your family, friends and pets. I hope this urgent mail meets you in a perfect condition. We have no time to waste regarding the information I am about to tell you, it is an urgent and serious matter.

    My name is Professor Hubert J. Farnsworth, senior data analyst here at the CERN institute based here in Geneva ( CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, is one of the world’s largest and most respected centres for scientific research. Its business is fundamental physics, finding out what the Universe is made of and how it works. You may have seen on the news that, in recent days, our Large Hadron Collider machine has been colliding high-speed beams of energy in order to explore new physics and understand how the universe began. CERN have been adamant that this is safe, however I KNOW THE TRUTH.

    The truth is that this experiment that CERN are conducting is extremely dangerous, and could cause global disaster. This experiment has a 95% of causing a black hole, thus swallowing a large area of the planet. The scientists do not want you to know this as they know it will cause panic. However, I can help you.

    I am arranging for a number of selected people to be evacuated to a safe location on an island in the South Pacific via aeroplane. You have been selected from random to take part in this evacuation, thus continuing the survival of the human race.

    Please, if you are interested, email me back immediately with the following information:

    Full name:
    Contact number:
    Email address:

    Please send all emails to my private box: From > ***Email removed***

    Regards, and God bless.
    Professor Hubert J. Farnsworth"

    From Ching Chung Sing:

    "Subject: Your relative’s Will

    Chang Hwa Commercial Bank
    Room 1401, Tower II The Gateway,
    25 Canton Road, Kowloon
    Hong Kong

    Dear Friend,

    According to our close source from private investigator a customer of ours who might be related to you (perhaps) in Hong Kong died some years ago in an auto accident here in Hong Kong leaving behind an estate/huge capital value at 19.8 million (with interest still accruing) in a bank here where I work, till date nobody has come forward or put application for the deceased claim as next of kin.

    During the bank private search recently for the late gentle man relatives your name and email contact was among the finding that matches the same surname as the deceased (name WITHELD for security reason) who died intestate. No WILL or NEXT OF KIN.
    To maintain the level of security required I have intentionally left out the final details of the deceased person.

    I urge you to come forward since I can provide you with the details needed for you to claim the estate/huge capital so that we all (You and us) can benefit from this great opportunity, in this way, you must agree to accept 35% from the estate/huge capital while me and my colleague will get from you 65% for taking part to do all the crucial work in the bank to have the claim release to you promptly without any questioning from any quarter. The essence of this message is strictly for benefit of you and us and nothing more. To affirm your willingness and cooperation please do so by replying me via my email stating your FULL NAME, DATE OF BIRTH, TELEPHONE NUMBER, FAX NUMBER, PRIVATE EMAIL ADDRESS, NATIONALITY AND POSTAL ADDRESS. And then I can have the confidence to brief you more on the above matter.

    I await your prompt reply.

    Thank you,
    ching chung sing"

    I had a scammer try to use his fake credit cards to "order product" from my company in Oz. She had an address in an industrial district in China. I googled it and found that the scam was out of Africa.
    So I played. My first email told the scammer that our minimum order was $1B and that our products were delivered by oompaloompahs.
    It went on for a while until I told them that we were happy to take payment from fake credit cards and will deliver to deepest darkest Africa through Oompaloompah couriers. Traded about 6 emails until that last one. Never heard back after that...

    second time we are notifying you about your over-due funds. Sometime ago,In the Memorandum of
    Understanding(MOU)It was revealed in your file as your name was penciled as the bonafide
    beneficiary to receive your over-due funds which was brought to our bank from the Economic
    Community of west African States (ECOWAS) In collaboration with the Federal Ministry of Finance

    We wish to inform you that the World Bank and International Monetary Fund (IMF) finally resolved
    the issue in London after one week meeting and decided to pay all out-standing funds payment of
    US$1,500,000.00(One Million Five Hundred United States Dollars Only) via Swift Telegraphic Wire
    Transfer(KTT)or swift Online Transfer for onwards payment into your account,which the government
    is incurring deficit and we are indebted to pay all OVER-DUE funds without any further impediment.

    Henceforth,All the previous banks, should submit their payment files due to their bureaucratic
    activities and inability to release these funds as scheduled by sending you a transfer
    confirmation slip to enable you notify your bank about the incoming funds into your designated
    bank account without any further delay.

    As a matter of fact ,we do not have enough time to waste since we have wasted much time in
    contacting our respective customers, so try and comply with the essential remittance requirements
    to ensure the swift release of these funds into your account. Example, your international passport
    or your drivers license, your telephone and fax number for easy communication with your designated
    bank details.

    Endeavor to call on Tel:+233-208329262 ,Fax:+233-261557461,to ensure the swift transfer of these

    There's also "Holy Church of the Tattooed Saint" where they manage to get the scammer to get "Baited by Shiver" tattooed on his arm:
