Spam messages

Anyone else get this?I got 3 of this message from member "lili123".

***********
Dear Respectfully,
I am writing this letter with due respect and heartful of tears since we have not known or met ourselves previously, I am Miss Lilian Morgan, and I inherited this sum from my late father who died in recent crisis in Cote d'Ivoire, and I would like to partner with you on investments, I do have US $6.5Million Dollars, which my late father deposited in the bank, and I would love to invest in real estate and other lucrative businesses in your country but does not know anybody in your country hence this medium. If you would be interested to assist me with this venture, please, do get back to me as soon as possible via my private email for more details ([email protected])
For your information, i will only offer you %10 from the
total money for your assistant after you have received the
money into your bank account in your country.

Best regards
Miss Lilian Morgan

If she is a member here copy her name here exactly as it appears.

We have no "lili123" with or without quotes.

Sometimes user's don't show up in searches if they haven't posted any messages. Could you forward the pm to Greg if you haven't deleted it yet?

Two timer!!! I thought I had her all to myself! She talks such good game. Actually I don't get that much spam, but my wife subscribes to every gardening magazine available, and am sure she clicks where she shouldn't be clicking. Thus separate computers.

Don't you wish there was a way to just shoot something back down the line that blows up their PC? Of course that would be a PC in some Internet Cafe.......

I got one! It's the first time I have ever received one of these requests and it came via my membership on this board.

I went ahead and E-mailed her back, I expect to get my reward about ten days after I die.

(No, I didn't respond, just kidding.)

Too bad I deleted the messages right away.I didn't know you all wanted one too.Next time I'll be sure to send it your way!

Nah Nah BooBoo to you all anyway.I just found out I can get 50% of the late Yassar Arafat's estate he left in a bank in Britain AND that I won 6 million pounds in the Irish lottery!

It's not Barrister John it's Barrister Jackson get it right!

Now look,I've got to get down to Western Union and pick up the $187,000.00.then I'm taking the ATM card with an account of 11 million dollars on it to the bank to pick up my $5000 daily limit so I can fly over to England to get the 1.5 million "Great British pounds" I won in the Crown Lottery.

From there I'm heading to Hong Kong where the late Ching Wong Who Flung Dung died with no heirs so the Bank of Hong Kong is letting me keep 25 million dollars for helping them recover the entire estate of 100 million.

I'm a busy guy.Hopefully I'll get back in time for the delivery of Cialis and Viagra,which I'll need with the free membership to all those dating sights I got.

I guess I can pass on working at home stuffing envelopes.that free lap top I get to keep just for trying it out should be nice though.

I have recieved that type mesage that you mentioned in my regular email account mostly Nigerain-based, even after that expose' on the news a few years back. Has anyone else recieved snail mail saying that you won $10,000 in the Austrailian lottery? I have gotten a few of these letters in the past 6 months. How on earth did they know that I found a $1 coin from Austrailia at work a few months ago?

Multiple Lillian Morgan scams have been circulating since 2006.
