My Response (sent today):

1) Your Full Name:-Mr. ABU SALAM
2) Your Age:- Mid to late 50's
3) Marital Status:- None will ever love me.
4) Your Cell Phone Number:-(55) 867-5309
5) Your Fax Number:- (555) 555-5555
6) Your Country:- Eastern West Africa
7) Your Occupation:- Scam Artist Extraordinare
8) Sex:- I like it in the behind, please.
9) Your Religion:- Scientology
10) Your Private E-mail Adress: [email protected]

I sincerely hope that I can assist you in this transaction. In fact, I also work for the records department in an obscure African country, and apparently there have been quite a few accidental deaths of millionaires in the past few years, all of them oddly enough from plane crashes or civil wars. Odd, don't you think? I believe that if you can forward me my TWENTY FIVE MILLION ($25,000,000,000,000,000.00) then I can forward you your TWENTY FIVE ($25.00) and we can both make out on our countries' great misfortunes. I appreciate you choosing me exclusively as your benefactor for this great sum of money, especially since I have no idea who you are, where you came from, or how you got my email address. However, I am somehow compelled to give you all my personal information, regardless of all the recent internet scams involving exactly this kind of transaction.

I will be awaiting your quick response on this urgent matter.

Yes, because the number is real it proves without a shadow of a doubt that the email is not spam. Why don't you prove it and give him your personal information.
