anybody else get on of these

check out this crazy email i got today! I am rich [img]images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]

Dear one,
I know that you will be very suprise to hear from me
since we have never met before,but may it please you
to understand that it very important to relate this to
you.
I am Sandra bilo the daughter of late Mr and Mrs
Vincent bilo.

My father was a very wealthy cocoa marchant in
Abidjan, my father was poisoned to death by his
business associates on one of their outing on a
business trip.

My mother died when I was seven years and since then
my father took me and my younger sister so special.
Before the death of my father on January 2002, he
called me and my younger sister and told us that he has the sum of twelve million three hundred thousand
dollars(US$12,300,000)left in fixed-suspense account
in the bank here in Abidjan, that he used my name as next of kin in depositing the money. He also explained to us that it was because of his wealth that he was poisoned by his business associates. That we should seek for a foreign partner(GOD fearing person)that will assist us, ofcourse, we have chosen you to transfer the money for investment purpose such as real estate management or hotel management.

Please, we are honorable seeking your assistance in the
following ways:

1)To provide a bank account into which this money
would be transfered to.

2)To serve as a guardian of this fund since.

3)To make arrangement for me and my sister to come
over to your country to further our education and to
secure a resident permit in your country.

Moreover, we are willing to offer you 15% of the
total money as compasation for your effort, input
after
the successfull transfer of this money into your
nominated account overseas.

Best regards.

SANDRA BILO

Re: anybody else get on of these

The best part is where he explained to her why he was poisoned. [img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]
Pretty good trick for being dead. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

And I get the same crap from time to time.
