    Opportunity of a lifetime?

    just had this email

    Good day!

    I am Mr. Salam Sudu director auditing and accounting department" bank of Africa (boa) Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso .I discovered the sum of seven million, two hundred thousand dollars (usd7.2) belonging to a deceased customer of this bank the fund has been lying in a suspense account without anybody coming to put claim over the money since the account owner late, Mr Salla khat from Lebanese who was involved in the December 28th 2006 Benin car crash.
    it is therefore, upon this discovery that i decided to take this ultimatum and make this business proposal to you as the fund will be release to you as the next of kin or relation to the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and i don't want this money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill the banking rules here stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed after five years, the money will be transferred into the bank treasury as unclaimed fund. The request of foreigner as next of kin in this business is occasioned by the fact that the deceased customer was a foreigner and a Burkina be cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner.
    Therefore, I am soliciting for your assistance to come forward as the next of kin. I have agreed that 40% of this money will be for you as the beneficiary respect of the provision of your account and service rendered, 60% will be for me. Then immediately the money transferred to your account from this bank, I will proceed to your country for the sharing of the fund.again you can call me through my telephone number +226 76705412 for more information.
    Yours faithful,
    Mr.Salam Sudu

    I remember a few years back I received an email stating it was from some UK lottery (I'm in Australia btw) that I'd just won a brand new Toyota Prius and that to receive my prize all I had to do was send some amount of money....hah they couldn't even spell "Toyota" properly.

    I had one the other day from 'Paypal', telling me my account would be suspended if I didn't update my security details. Its scary to think how many people would just follow the link and fill it out though

    I've gotten those too, and I don't even HAVE a Paypal! I've also gotten similar emails from US banks. I always report 'em to the powers that may be.
