Gone Phishing -- Anita Fripong promises me my share of a measly 4.5 million US dollars. Cheapskate.

A note from Roy: This is a phishing attack. Do NOT reply to Ms Anita Fripong. If you do, you'll be giving her a lead as to who you are, what your legitimate email address is, and some kind of a clue as to how to fleece you out of some substantial amount of dollars. I'm reproducing it here cos it's basically just plain hilarious that some people actually get duped by this rubbish.

From: Ms Anita Fripong
Accra, Ghana.


I got your contact during my search for a reliable, honest and a trust worth person to entrust this huge transfer project with. My name is Ms Anita Fripong, Branch manager of a financial institution here in Ghana. I am a singal mother with a kid. I am writing to solicit your assistance in the transfer of $ 4,550.000.00 Million United States dollars only.

This fund is the excess of what my branch in which am the manager made as profit during the 2005 financial year. I have already submitted annual report for that year to my head office here in Accra as I have watched with keen interest as they will never know of this excess.I have since, placed this amount of $ 4,550.000.00 Million United States dollars only to an Escrow Coded account without a beneficiary (anonymous) to avoid trace.

As an officer of the bank, I cannot be directly connected to this money thus I am impelled to request for your assistance to receive this money into your bank account on my behalf. I intend to part 30% of this fund to you while 70% shall be for me. I do need to stress that there are practically no risk involved in this. It's going to be a bank-to-bank transfer. All I need from you is to stand as the original depositor of this fund so that the fund can be transferred to your account. If you accept this offer, I will appreciate your timely response urgently.

With Regards,

Ms Anita Fripong
