Hails all,

I got this email, which am sure nearly everyone gets.
i know it is a scam, but i wonder if anyone has ever made a joke and played along abit:
here is the email:
 Quote:
MR. KOJO FADA
AFRICAN DEVELOPMENT BANK
COTONOU BENIN-REPUBLIC
WEST AFRICA

Dear friend,


Forgive this unusual manner of contacting you, but this particular letter is of exceptional and very private nature. There is absolutely going to be a great doubt and distrust in your heart in respect of this email I guess, coupled with the fact that, so many miscreants have taken possession of the Internet to facilitate their nefarious deeds, thereby making it extremely difficult for genuine people to get attention and recognition. There is no way for me to know whether I will be properly understood, but it is my duty to write and reach out to you.

My name is Mr. Kojo Fada, a staff with African development Bank personal as Staff introducting a business propsal of one late bank customer Mr Neal Walker who died along with his wife Elaine Walker in 31st October 1999 in a plane crash. Below is a website which I will appreciate you go through to read the information.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/americas/502503..stm

I know that a transaction of this magnitude will make any one worried and apprehensive but I am assuring you not to worry, as all will be well at the end of this endeavor. Our customer late Neal Walker who died few years ago leaving behind a large sum of money with our bank here in Cotonou Benin Republic , a place where plenty of rich people tend to hide away funds not ready to be used or invested. This amount discovered in his account is 10.5m .

So far, valuable efforts has been made to get to his people but to no avail, as he had no known relatives more because he left no next of kin column in his account opening forms blank and he has no known relative. Due to this development the bank has come forward to returned this fund into the bank treasuary without be claim.
***********************************************
To avert this negative development my colleagues and I have decided to look for a reputable person to act as the next of kin to late Neal Walker so that the funds could be processed and released into his account, which is where you come in. as next of kin since we will be portraying you as being directly related to our late customer.

All I require is your honest co-operation to enable us see this transaction through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. All legal documents to aid your claim for this fund and to prove your relationship with the deceased will be provided by you and me. Your help will be appreciated with 30% of the total sum which 60% will be for me and 10% for any expensis, thereafter I will come to you for disbursement according to the percentage indicated.

Please accept my apologies, keep my confidence and disregard this letter if you do not appreciate this proposition I have offered you. But, if interested get back to me immediately.

Best Regards,
Mr Kojo Fada

These are old news. Everyone knows that the majority of spam email comes out of Nigeria.
