    Profile? What profile? I don't even have a myspace account. I can't believe people still fall for this. :woot:

    From: Ms Stella Moroba to you.

    Dearest One,

    REQUEST TO BE MY GUARDIAN AND THEN HELP ME TO COME OVER YOUR COUNTRY:

    Good day and how are you today? I hope fine? After going through your profile,
    permit me to inform you of my desire of asking you to be a guardian or foster parent to me and then help me out in what i am about to tell you. I know this may sound strange to you , receiving a mail from an unknown person, but my condition has forced me to do that.

    I'm Ms.Stella Moroba 19 years old,the only daughter of Late Mr. & Mrs. Timothy A. Moroba my father was a very wealthy cocoa merchant here in Abidjan, the economic capital of Cote D'Ivoire. He was poisoned to death by his business associates on one of their outings on a business trip,my mother died when i was a baby.

    Before the death of my father on April. 2006 in a private hospital here in Abidjan, he secretly
    called me by his bed side and told me that he has the sum of Two million Five hundred thousand United State Dollars USD ($2.5million) deposited in a suspense account in one of the big banks here in Abidjan.

    He then strongly advised me not to seek for assistance in the investment of the money from his lawyer nor any of his friend here but to seek for a foreign partner from a country of my choice (outside our country,Cote D'Ivoire) that will assist me in the wise investment of the money.I have since left the money in the bank with the view of my making use of it for investment purposes after my education carrier here. But as you may be already aware by now, our country (Cote D' Ivoire) is presently at political crises. Rebels have already taken over the whole Northern part of the country and making efforts towards to capture the commercial center of the country, Abidjan, where i am now.

    For this ugly development in this country, i have now decided to take quick actions and have this money transferred out of this country before it is too late for me in doing that. I now want to transfer it out and use it for investment purpose like real estate management or hotel
    management. Because of this i am honorably seeking your assistance in the following ways:
    (1) To serve as a guardian to me and then assist me transfer the money into your bank account. (2) To make arrangement for me to come over to your country to further my education and then settle there parmanently. If you accept to stand as my guardian or foster parent to me, i need not discuss on any percentage with you as you have to see the whole money as yours and then assist me invest it. But if you still want a percentage, i am willing to offer you, 30 % of the total money as compensation for your assistance. Please tell me if you feel the percentage i offered is not ok by you.As soon as i receive your concrete assurance to assist me with my proposal and also your full contact address/phone number, i will then give the bank your contact information and then tell them to transfer the money into your account as i want to come over to stay with you parmanently.

    The bank will then contact you and communicate with you on the transfer. You shall then be giving me information on when the transfer will be over.I shall also send my pictures to you and shall also need yours own too. No matter what your decision may turn out to be, please i beg you to keep this highly secret for my safety, as i believe that those people that killed my Daddy are still after me.

    Please reply me through this my private email box: ([email protected]) or you can as well call me through my number+22509428599 for more explaination regarding my situation here.

    Thanks and God bless you .
    Best regards,
    Ms.Stella Moroba

    LoL! That's the most ridiculous one I've ever read. She just picks an email and offers a random person to place millions of her dollars in your bank account.

    I've never gotten any that dumb:D

    That movie was great though, I watched it with some friends of mine the other day. I used to do tech support and at least once a week we'd get some moron calling in saying that thier cards were being charged too much because they responded to the spam emails... Then they'd threaten to sue us for letting them respond to it... Fun times :D
