I WAS CLEANING my spam email folder, and found this one. Couldn't resist putting it here for all to see:

Dear Partner,
My names are Kojo Annan. I am the son of the United Nations Secretary General, Kofi Annan.My motive for contacting you is based on my urgent need of a partner that can assist in securely and investing $47,000,000.00. The source of these funds is my now overtly known participation as a consultant with the Swiss firm Cotecna Inspection S.A, in the Iraqi Oil for Food Program. Though the program has been
discontinued since 2004, the public scrutiny into how the affairs of the program were run has refused to go away.I was on transit in Europe when I was contacted on the phone by my lawyers that a further revelation about two incriminating emails had broken on the said program. I had to immediately re-organize my
immediate travel plans. Coincidentally, I had just taken delivery of the above mentioned funds. Because I knew that the press would be looking out for me, I had to hurriedly seek for a storage company to keep away the trunk cases containing the said funds.Fortunately, a 145 page report released by an independent inquiry committee headed by U.S. Federal Reserve Board chairman Paul Volcker has exonerated me and my dad of any wrong doing. You can get first hand news on this by visiting

Following this good news, I would have since gone back to retrieve the suitcases but I know I am being watched because of the Oil for Food scandal. This is why I require your assistance. You are to proceed immediately to Europe with the relevant claim documents which I will provide you with, to retrieve the suitcases. I have already notified the storage company in writing, of my intention to elect someone that would be coming on my behalf and it is ok with them. They have simply asked me to arm my elected person with a consent letter. The cases where logged in as personal effects.

Before you proceed, ensure that you have perfected modalities to take care of the funds once they arrive your account. Soon after, my attorney would meet with you to sign relevant documentation to evidence our partnership in a profitable venture we will decide on. You are to get 20% for your troubles.if you are interested in my proposal.
