The Best Written Spam Ever

General Nonsense

I get a few spam mails in my Gmail-inbox from time to time. Considering I check 4 email accounts, the number of spam mails are surprisingly low, especially if I compare it to Hotmail.

However one just got through and I want to share it with you.

It’s sent from with the subject: “I hope to get your response…..”


I humbly crave your indulgence in sending you this mail, if the contents do not meet with your personal and business ethics, I apologize in advance. This is by virtue of its nature as being utterly “CONFIDENTIAL”. Though I know that a transaction of this magnitude will make any one apprehensive and worried, I am assuring you that all will be well at the end of the day.

I have decided to contact you due to the urgency of this transaction, as I have been reliably informed of your discreteness and ability in transaction of this nature. Let me start first by introducing myself properly to you.

I am Mr. Davis Earle, of Dept of Bill and Exchange with Barclays Bank in the United Kingdom. I need your consent to handle this transaction because it entails a large amount of funds (6.4 Million GBP) deposited by a deceased customer in our bank who died long time ago but has an open beneficiary mandate on his file though, there has not been anyone of his family to make claim of this funds.


I wish to know if we can work together. I would like you to stand as next of kin to my deceased client, who was among the people that lost their life in Kenya air crash in 2003, with the wife, children and entire generation.

He made some deposits to my bank, and died without any registered next of kin and as such the funds now have an open beneficiary mandate. Click on the link and see the details because this link gives a very comprehensive picture of what I’m saying. If you are interested do let me know so that I can give you comprehensive details on what we are to do.

I urgently hope to get your response.

Best regards,
Mr. Davis Earle

Isn’t that cute? Someone from the Barclay’s Bank actually found me over the 61,000,000 Brits. What are the chances?

Obviously, blogging is making me a ton of money, so I’m not really interested in this small amount.

  • I LOVE spam. When I open my accounts, the first thing I do is check my spam box to see what kind of goodies people were sending me. I also like to know who else had died within the past 4 hours since my last spam. It makes my morning, day, and night. LONG LIVE SPAM!!
  • Really the number of spam mails are surprisingly low,
  • this is a very old scam. it started getting around the internet some years ago and a lot of people got cheated in zero time. today is a little more difficult not to recognize this scam because the web is overfloaded by it. if i am not mistaken it is called nigerian scam because the first emails ever sent were from this country
  • I get these letters all day long. Let me find one that's a classic. YOu will laugh when you read this...
  • He just wrote to me one more time. I guess he didn't think I read it the first time.

    You sure it wasn't Mr Agdgdgwngo from Uganda confirming your cash prize of 61 million ugandan dollars?

    I love spam almost as much as I hate it.
