Ten Point Five Million

Once again it’s time to play Let’s Count The Typos

From: Mrs Rita kone.
Cote d’Ivoire
My Dear,
Good day, it is my pleasure to contact you for a business venture which I and my Son Mack, intend to establish in your country. Though I have not met with you before but I believe, one has to risk confiding in succeed some times in life.

There is this huge amount of ten million five hundred U.S dollars ($10,500,000.00) which my late Husband kept for us in the Security Company in Abidjan , Cote d’Ivoire before he was assassinated by unknown persons. Now I and my son decided to invest this money in your country or anywhere safe enough outside cote d’lvoire for security and political reasons.

We want you to help us claim and retrieve this fund from the Security
Company and transfer it into your personal account in your country for investment purposes on these areas:
1). Telecommunication
2). The transport industry
3). Five star hotel
4). Real Estate or other profitable investment.

If you can be of an assistance to us we will be pleased to offer to you 15% of the total fund. I await your soonest response.

Respectfully yours,
Mrs Rita kone.

Now some of you might think that today’s title – the number – was based on the dollars. But it’s not. It is the number of Inboxes this was sent to. In an hour. By your neighbor’s computer (maybe, possibly, yours ). Please read Our Modern Nightmare – Zombie Attack and find out more about where spam really comes from, and what you can do to make sure you’re not part of the problem.
