    Recieved a phishing scam EMail today. Basically from somebody wanting me to help them move 17.5 million dollars out of Sierra Leone. The account was a Phillipines one though.

    Is it morally wrong to put the EMail address on here for everybody to send newsletters and whatever else they want??

    We thank you very much for your mail and for your wiliness to assist me and my sister in receiving our inheritance money on our behalf. First of all, we are from Sierra Leone, and we dont have access to cash because this money were deposited when our parents are alive. We are in the refugee for our safety because of the political crises in the country which i know you must be awire. We feed through the help of the united Nation UN.

    I created this email account for a very long time and used yahoo PH because i find out that it is in English, i created the box because i want box. I open another new email address in yahoo.com.

    Really I am a young boy who did not have any knowledge of business word, hence; our reason why of contacting you to assist us so that you will be the care taker of this money to enable you know a good area we will invest this money that will yield a proper benefit in order for us not to loose or miss use the money as our entire future hope. Due to our present condition we were unable to finish our secondary education due to the fact that our parents are no more.


    I am sure you will assist us and nominate a good and reliable account for the receipt of the fund and as well invest the money into a profitable venture you may deem right.


    In your next reply, we will like you to send to us your contact information such as your full name, your address, your telephone and fax number.

    Immediately I receive your contact information, I will go to the bank and introduce you as our partner who where doing business with our late father (Cocoa Merchant dealer) before he died, now he is no more, you want to bring us together with the money so that we will continue the same business there. The reason why I said this is to protect the interest of this money and also for the bank to know that you are in business with my late father in order to transfer the money to your account.

    We will wait for your immediate response,

    God Bless you for your kindest assistance,
    Oscar and Sandra Williams.
