I'd like to know your opinion.

Dear Friend,

My name is LOI C.ESTRADA,The wife of Mr. JOSEPH
ESTRADA, the former President of Philippines located
in the South East Asia. My husband was recently
impeached from office by a backed uprising of mass
demonstrators and the Senate. My husband is presently
in jail and facing trial on charges of corruption,
embezzlement, and the mysterious charge of plunder
which might lead to death sentence.

The present government is forcing my husband out of
Manila to avoid demonstration by his supporter. During
my husband's regime as president of Philippine, I
realized some reasonable amount of money from various
deals that I successfully executed. I have plans to
invest this money for my children's future on real
estate and industrial production.

My husband is not aware of this because I wish to do
it secretly for now. before my husband was impeached,
I secretly siphoned the sum of $30,000,000
million USD (Thirty million United states dollars) out
of Philippines and deposited the money with a security
firm that transports valuable goods and consignments
through diplomatic means.

I am contacting you because I want you to go to the
security company and claim the money on my behalf
since I have declared that the consignment belong to
my foreign business partner. You shall also be
required to assist me in investment in your country. I
hope to trust you as a God fearing person who will not
sit on this money when you claim it, rather assist me
properly, I expect you to declare what percentage of
the total money you will take for your assistance.
When I receive your positive response I will
let you know where the security company is and the
payment pin code to claim the money which is very

For now, let all our communication is by e-mail
because my line are right now connected to the
Philippines Telecommunication Network services.

Please also send me your telephone and fax number.

I will ask my son contact you to give you more details
on after i have received a responce from you.through this
email address mrssliocestrada@netscape.net

Thank you and God bless you and family.

Ah, is it the Philippines this time? I've received several e-mails about money in all possible African countries. Obviously they expect you to give some sort of deposit and then they're off with your money. I wonder who's stupid enough to reply to these kind of e-mails.

Well I installed Spam Inspector a few weeks ago, and I get less and less spam everyday. I guess this will the next adress on my spam list ;)

BTW, don't reply to spam by replying with REMOVE or whatever in the subject line. (That just tells the "SpamBot" sending out millions of them what's an actual e-mail address). ;)

I got one from Nigeria too a while ago.
soo annoying.

I've gotten stuff like this before. The one that I got doesn't ask for any money. What they do is say, "do this and I'll give you a cut of the money". The e-mail claimed that her husband was murdered and that she was in danger and that she needed help getting her own money. Of course, you have to keep it secret for her safety. They try to play into sympathy and make it look safe by not asking for any money but then they steal your bank account information and wipe out whatever you have.

Exactly how I do december. I mean if you open all the junk mail you get, imagine how busy you'd be. Not to mention the fact that people this is how those virus' get started. If you don't know who it's from, don't open it, plain and simple. Delete it, save yourself some time, and your computer some trouble. :)
