DEAR B. MAC,

I GOT YOUR CONTACT FROM NANOWRIMO.ORG I KNOW YOU MIGHT BE SURPRISE SEEING MY MAIL I AM [name] , FROM ABIDJAN COTE DIVOIRE IN SOUTH AFRICA. AND I AM SOLICITING FOR YOUR ASSISTANCE TO HELP ME TRANSFER THE SUM 7.5MILLION EURO PRESENTLY DEPOSITED IN A SECURITY COMPANY IN EUROPE. IF YOU SIGNIFY YOUR INTREST I WILL GIVE YOU THE FULL DETAILS OF THE TRANSACTION INCLUDING THE DOCUMENTS BACKING THIS DEPOSIT AND FOR YOUR ASSISTANCE 15% OF THE TOTAL SUM IS FOR YOUR COMPENSATION.

From B. Mac
Washington, DC

Dear [Name]

As luck would have it, I’ve been waiting for just the right venture partner, a canny operator that properly appreciates the value of randomly soliciting business partners through amateur writing contests.  I can’t imagine anyone I’d rather involve in a 7 digit* transaction than someone who identifies himself by an initial and writes under the login name “SuperheroNation.”
(*8, if you use real money).

I have enclosed the deposit information for my Paypal account. Please deposit the 7.5 million and I will see to it that you receive your 85%.

Yours,
B. Mac

P.S. Isn’t Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire in West Africa?

    Hello my name is Mr. Mugabe and I am about to be elected out of office – I happen to have a large sum of money that I need to get out of the country, fast! I will give you 10million dollars, and all you need to do is wire me a simple transfer fee of $10,000! That’s a one-thousand time return on your investment!

    Haha, by the way that is hilarious that they wrote that they were from Ivory Coast… funny that it’s actually not in South Africa, after all…
