    And yet, I cannot remember evan joining the lottory, i'm 12 for Pete's sake.

    I also got this:

    From Mr Mohamed Waleed
    Bank of Africa,
    Ouagadougou Burkina Faso.
    West Africa.

    Dear Friend,

    I know that this letter may come to you as a surprise.I got your contact address
    from Burkina Faso chamber of commerce while i was searching for somebody that has
    similar name with our deceased customer.

    I am the manager of bill and exchange Bank of Africa (B.O.A) at Foreign Remittance
    Department.There is a business I would want you to champion for me.In my
    department we discovered an abbandoned sum of (US$31.500.000.00) Thirty One
    Million Five Hundred Thousands US Dollars) in an account that belongs to one of
    our foreign customer who died along with his entire family in 11th September 2003
    in a plane crash.

    Unfortunately we learnt that all his supposed next of kin's or relation died along
    side with him in the plane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim.It is
    therefore upon this discovery that I now decided to make this business proposal to
    you and release the money to you as the next of kin or relation to the deceased
    for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and I donât
    want this money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill.

    I agreed that 20 % of this money will be for you as foreign partner,in the respect
    of the provision of a foreign account,and 10 % will be set aside for the expenses
    incured during this business and 70 % would be for me.Thereafter,i will visit your
    country for disbursement according to the percentage indicated.Therefore,to enable
    the transfer of this fund to you as arranged,you must first apply to the Bank as
    relation or next of kin of the deceased indicating your Bank name,your Bank
    account number,your private telephone and fax number for easy and effective
    communication and location wherein the fund will be remitted.

    All modalities of this transaction have been carefully worked out and once started
    will not take more than Fourteen working days to complete the transfer process
    with your full support.This transaction is 100% risk free,it involve no any
    implication and no precaution thereafter.Upon receipt of your reply,i will send
    you by fax or email the text of transfer application form which you will fill and
    send to the Bank.

    I will not fail to bring to your notice that this transaction is hitch free,that
    you should not entertain any atom of fear as required arrangement has been made
    already for the succesful transfer of this fund.

    You should contact me immediately as soon as you receive this letter.
    Trusting to hearing from you immediately.

    Yours faithfully
    Mohamed Waleed

    Now, things weird about that, if the family died in 2003, they would of found the cash well before now.

    2) I have had this exact same messages over 10 times (This includes my main hotmail account)

    3) As I said before, I'M 12!

    Now, lastly I got this e-mail from a fake Barclays e-mail:

    *** This is robot generated email, please do not reply ***

    And witch actually makes me laugh with all these scams going around. Anyway, as we said, this is completely scamming and spamming actually people's accounts, they know we know it's a scam, so why constantly send it?

    P.S. All these messages where directly copied and pasted from my e-mail.
