Are you dead or Alive

I can’t decide if this scammer has a sense of humour or whether he’s been on the whacky backy. ¬†Either way, I can imagine that many of his potential victims are going to be taken in by a scam where a “Mr Cave Man” asks you if you are alive or dead. I’ve replied and told him I died last week and sent him an invitation to my funeral.

I suggest everyone else just ignores him.  He wants your money.


Dear Friend,

I feel quite safe in dealing with you in this Mutual Beneficial
transaction. Though, this medium (Internet) has been greatly abused, I
choose to reach you through it because it Still remains the fastest, and
most secured Medium of communication. However, this transaction is purely

Executive Director” in charge of Claims and Indemnity of Prudential
Insurance Company. I am contacting you based on Trust and confidentiality
that will be attached to this deal for the benefit of both of us. The
Management and the Legal /Treasury Department of this Insurance
Company in a recent meeting, Recommended that the any account that the
owner has not service for a very long period, shall be declared Dormant
and confiscated Hence moving such unclaimed benefits fund! so to the
Treasury according to the Banking and Financial law here.

Recently, I came across a very huge sum of money belonging to a customer
who is now a deceased (MR.Sean Burke). He is a foreigner, unfortunately He
is now late as he was amongst those that die in the 1997 Plane crash .
This man was our client and has Life Assurance Policy WORTH the sum of Ten
Million United States Dollars (US$10,000,000.00). Right now, the fund is
lying unclaimed in our custody and there is NO next Of kin mentioned in
his will and there is no how we can reach any of his relatives. All
efforts made by us to establish contacts with any of his relation have
proved abortive and unsuccessful.

His Life Assurance Policy will expire in the next few Months from the date
of this letter. Just last week we received an instruction from Ministry of
Social Welfare to forward particulars of all unclaimed benefits that will
expire in the next few months. Upon my personal finding on this matter, I
kept this Information secret to myself until now that I am contacting you.

In view Of the fact that the Mr. Sean Burke is a foreigner, it is
officially important for the involvement of a Foreigner who will pose as a
next-of-kin. I will use my exalted position in this Insurance Company to
present you as his Next of Kin and stand as his relative, friend or Cousin
and the Money (USD$10Million) will be safely transferred into your own
