Nineteen millions to call my own

Check out the nugget that came to my inbox yesterday:

FROM: Mr.Liu Yan
Bank of China Ltd.
13/F. Bank of China Tower
1 Garden Road,
Hong Kong.

To whom it may concern:

I have a transaction of mutual benefits, which I like to share with you. It involves an amount of Nineteen millions Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars only,in our Bank, which I like to acquire with your help and you will be compensated adequately as your commission.

If you are interested please reply instantly with your contact information and forward your telephone number so we may discuss and I shall provide you with the details of this transaction.

If interested send your response to my personal email address: mr.liu_bankofficer23@yahoo.com.hk

Thank you.

Yours sincerely,
Mr.Liu Yan.

I cannot wait to get my hands on my nineteen millions United State dollars. This SO has to be real. I mean, he's a bank officer. Look at his email. You can't have those words in your email address unless it's true. People don't lie. Ever. I've already forwarded all my personal information, credit cards, and bank account numbers, plus those of my friends and family. I cannot wait to get my nineteen millions United State dollars.

When I get it, the first thing I'm going to buy is a giant Santa blow up globe to put on my front lawn. You can come visit and see it. I'll use my nineteen millions United States dollars to fly you here.

This is going to be the best Christmas ever.

congratulations on your nineteen millions united states dollars!! i am sooo happy for you!!! what a fool i have been for always deleting those pleas from those rich people asking for help getting their millions. dang it. i am so mad at myself.

Amz said...

This is too funny! You'd think they'd take a moment and be professional about it if they were really trying to con you.

Kimberly and Devon said...

What a relief! Now all of your worries about college and retirement are over! Thank goodness they thought to contact you, rather than the other millions of people in America, first. I can't wait to see the Santa snow globe...you're right, this is going to be the best Christmas ever!!

Those Chinese bankers. They are tricky ones. Try the Chinese dentist next time.

You're so stupid. I knew you would fall for this one...

Woo-hoo! I'm catching the first flight out of Norway. First Class?

Ha! I had a very similiar one this week too, only my 'esquire' had a hotmail account. Because I'm sure all rich, legitimate attorneys conduct their business on hotmail.
Do people really fall for this stuff???

AMY said...

Wow. You are so lucky. You know, I have three acres of land sitting on newly discovered oil. If you'd be interested, I'll sell it to you for $500K. They say it's worth 10 times that. I just need the cash now. Oh, and I have a few rare diamonds that I don't have any use for. I'll unload those to ya for $20K. They appraised at $2M. That'll still leave you plenty for the snow globe. (Glad you're rich now!)

Lisa-Marie said...

Can I get a lawn snow globe too? And I've been mulling over your bloggers diet idea this week and I JUST decided. I'm eating all I want and then YOU can pay for me to have a tummy tuck! THANKS!

I got one of these yesterday! Only mine was only 15 million. It was from a lady in India who wanted me to distribute it to deserving people because she's dying.

A sneakier one I got a while ago said it was from Amazon. com. It said my account info got lost, and they couldn't send my order until I resubmitted it. I was supposed to send it immediately to the return email. It looked legit and I did have an order on it's way. I got all the way to the question "What is the pin number on your bank account" before I caught on! Scary, scary...Actually there's never any money in my accounts anyway. I would be the identity theft that would serve the thieves right!

You and all the scammed old ladies they write about in Reader's Digest will be having a GOOD Christmas this year!

Mahina said...

hey, i got the same email! does that mean i have to share my nineteen millions United Staes dollars with you??

John Holly Levi & Faith said...

I want 19 million united states dollars.

What's sad is that little old ladies totally fall for that and give all their info away.

Share the wealth...

If anyone deserves it is you...I think Mr. Liu must have seen your blog and fallen deeply in love.

Lizzie said...

I had one of those a couple of weeks back - only mine was from a dear old terminally ill widow and it was for 'fifyteen million' dollars, LOL.

Funny thing is, I actually know a Sophia George...

Cheers,

Mr. Liu Yan and I are really good friends. He tries to give me 19 million united state dollars like everyday. I love him.

Rochelleht said...

Can't. Stop. Laughing...

Dancin Queen said...

Hilarious. As always. Love you Stie.

Amber said...

To think I've been waiting for the Publisher's Clearing House guy allllll these years.

Sad that people actually fall for it all.

lainakay said...

Too, too funny! I can't wait to see the snowglobe! Will you really fly all of us!? What a party!

Lori said...

you have been tagged, I get at least one of these a day and it is driving me crazy! It is a cruel joke to let us get excited about money that we can just have for free.

Mique said...

Received several of these myself. But I'm still waiting for my millions. You mean it's not true? And I gave them all my banking info? And and and and....uh oh....looks like we will be having the worst Christmas ever......

Diane said...

Nineteen millions is a lot of Unites States dollars! I love the language. He writes with an accent! I hope you'll think of us when you get the dough. We'd love to come and see it (I mean you) in person!

I actually fell for a credit card scam years ago, and still can't believe I was so stupid! They said they were the IRS and were going to send me some cash. They just needed to know, since our name is so common, if we were the correct name on their list. Of course they needed much more info and I was sucked in quite easily. Not anymore though....I'm so much older and wiser!

Michelle Dawn said...

Stumbled over here from somewhere... I forget what I was supposed to be doing... Love your blog!

Meg said...

HAHA well Jessica R told me not to come here but I appear to be a rule breaker and did it anyway! Loved this post! So funny.

And just so you know...the Jessica who left me all those comments on my blog is not Jessica Romney. It's Jessica Gordon, my cousin. ☺
