people still fall for this? this is soooooooooo 2000

got this in a email on one of my accounts:

FROM ROSE GUEI
Abidjan cote D` Ivoire
West Africa.
r/o/s/e/g//g_/2/8/at/y/a/h/o/o/.f/r
Dearest one,

I am the first daughter of an ex military/ex president been an opposition party to the present Government of COTE D`IVOIRE. On the 19th sept 2002 my father/mother including every members of our family was murdered by the unknown REBELS during the time they attack our house by shooting and looting, even this is one of the things that contributed to the present crisis in our country today.


so kind I was not in town when the incident occurred, the plans of the REBELS is to kill every members of our family so that no one will rise up to revenge as time goes on. I am in our country without any one knowing although I am on hiding so that the unknown REBELS will not get to me and kill me like they killed all the members of our family. Why I still stay back in our country is to transfer the $18.5mUSD which my late father deposited in the custody of AFRICAN JOINT SECURITY ASSISTANCE COMPANY, he deposited the fund as a family treasure containing AFRICAN ART WORK FOR EXPORT for security reasons, as security company does not operate as bank where some one can deposit his/her money openly.

Before the death of my father he gave me the covering documents of the fund deposited in the security company, as I am his first daughter and he so much loved me that was why he made me the beneficiary of the two iron trunk boxes containing the $18.5mUSD. Right now I wish to transfer this fund to you so that you will assist me to invest the money into any viable sector in your country, also you will help me to join you in your country for me to start up a new life with you there immediately the fund gets to you. since I am no longer safe as far as Africa is concern at the moment, I wanted to transfer the fund before leaving the country because this fund is my last hope and the only hope I have now.

Before I even pick you to assist me I have prayed and slept over it asking to provide for me a Godly minded person that will assist me in this transaction. I will give you more details of the transaction in my next email r/o/s/e/g/g/_/2/8/at/y/a/h/o/o/.f//r)
Thanks and bless you.

ROSE GUEI




so i gave her my account information. IM RICH !

A few people actually come in/call us to report they've been scammed like this... you try not to laugh, but those people are so stupid you kinda feel sorry for 'em

But then you tell all the other guys... "Listen to what this dumbass fell for!"

Adult Protective Services doesn't consider them stupid enough to need government assistance, either

Not sure if that is sarcasm there or what... I'm guessing so!

I really feel bad for those people who are actually mentally retarded, but anyone who falls for one of those e-mail scams is not retarded, just stoopid.

Like the girl that came to the PD to make a report... WHILE SHE WAS HIGH... some people are just too dumb to help.

there was a lady in califrnia when i lived there that wrote in to the local newspaper and told her ordeal... they asked her for like 10K dollars in exchange for a winning lottory ticket that they couldn't cash for some reason and she only had 7K in the house, she goes in to get that... then they say they will take a check for the other 3K, she goes inside to get the check book and they leave. she even included her name in the newspaper article!!
