Ever received one of those emails saying that your unknown great 2nd Uncle in Zaire just died and you are the sole recipient of his fortune? And in order for the funds to be transferred all you need to do is send your bank information and then you'll be rich beyond measure! I got an updated version of that email last night. I wonder how many idiots actually fall for this??

United Nation's/European Union

Dear Sir,

This is to notify you that you have been chosen By the Board of trustees of the UNITED NATIONS as one of the final recipients of a Cash Grant/Donation for your own personal, education and business development.

Association Of European Charity Foundations in conjunction with the UNITED NATIONS is giving out a yearly donation of Two Million United States Dollars each to 50 lucky international recipients worldwide in different categories for their educational pursuit, health care, personal Business development and uplift of their environments. These funds are freely given to you to use for your business educational and personal development and at least 30% to be used by you to develop a part of your environment, as this is a yearly program, which is a measure of universal development strategy, and eradication of poverty.

Based on the random selection exercise of internet service providers (ISP) and millions of Super market cash invoices worldwide, you were selected among the lucky recipients to receive the award sum of $2,000,000.00 (Two Million United States Dollars) as charity donations/aid from the UNITED NATION/Association Of European Charity Foundations. Note that, your email was selected from either the internet, or a Shop's cash invoice around your area in which you might have purchased something from.

kindly note that you are not the only beneficiary in your country this year, and your country is not the only country that is benefiting from this donation, as beneficiaries have been chosen from countries from all continents. The idea of this donation is that within ten years from now, there will be notable richness amongst many unusual people around the world.

This will give many people the opportunity to get their lives to a stage where they had always wanted. Kindly note that you will only be chosen to receive the donation once. Which means that, subsequent yearly donation will not get to you again, so it's your choice to spend the donation wisely on something that will last you a long time.

Due to security consciousness we cannot mail or send you a cashier cheque (draft). We will send a cheque to the paying Bank to transfer your entitlement to you in receipt of your mail proving you to be the rightful beneficiary. You are required to Contact the Paying Bank with your personal identification number for the swift transfer of your funds.
