here is an example of one those stupid emails :evil: , i just got from a scammer in inbox today from one of the members of dubai forums.
my private email box( )

Dear sympathetic one,

Permit me to inform you of my desire of going into business relationship with you. I got your name and contact when i was searching for good christian and muslem person who can help me.

I am linda akuma, the only daughter of late Mr and Mrs christopher akuma.I am 20years old girl. My father was a very wealthy cocoa merchant based in Abidjan, the economic capital of Ivory Coast before he was poisoned to death by his business associates on one of their outing to discuss on a business deal. When my mother died on the 21st October 1996, my father took me so special because I am motherless.

Before the death of my father on the 20th of May 2007 in a private hospital here in Abidjan. He secretly called me on his bed side and told me that he has a sum of US$7.500,000(seven Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) left in a suspense account in a local bank here in Abidjan,he told me that he used my name as his only daughter for the next of kin in deposit of the fund. He also explained to me that it was because of this wealth he was poisoned by his business associates. That I should seek for a foreign partner in a country of my choice where I will transfer this money and use it for investment purpose, (such as real estate management).

Moreover, I am willing to offer you 15% of the total sum as compensation for your effort input after the successful transfer of this money to your nominated account.

please this is my private email box( )

Anticipating hearing from you soon.

Thanks and God bless.

Your sincerely

Even if they provide contact details (such as the post above me), it can be still quite difficult to tell if a business offer is legit or a scam. I say stay away from shady-sounding deals which involves sending out your money.
