    These stories are actually pretty good, I might consider collecting them all and write a book. Here's the email I got:

    Code:
    From Elina kipkalya Kones,My father name Dr Bango Kones,
    Former Minister for SPLA Affairs,
    I am from (Kenyan), female 24years old
    Live in Ouagadougou Burkina Faso
    
    
    please after reading Reply to this email  [elina.kipkalya@yandex.com]
    
    
    My Dear ,I am writing this mail to you with tears and sorrow from my
    heart. With due respect ,trust and humanity, i appeal to you to
    exercise a little patience and read through my letter, I wish to
    contact you personally for a long term business relationship and
    investment assistance in your Country so i feel quite safe dealing
    with you in this important business having gone through your
    remarkable profile, honestly i am writing this email to you with
    pains, tears and sorrow from my heart, i will really like to have a
    good relationship with you and i have a special reason why i decided
    to contact you, i decided to contact you due to the urgency of my
    situation, My name is Elina kipkalya Kones, 24yrs old female and I
    held from Kenya in East Africa. My father was the former Kenyan road
    Minister. He and Assistant Minister of Home Affairs Lorna Laboso had
    been on board the Cessna 210, which was headed to Kericho and crashed
    in a remote area called Kajong'a, in western Kenya. The plane crashed
    on the Tuesday 10th, June, 2008.You can read more about the crash
    through the below site:
    http://edition.cnn.com/2008/WORLD/africa/06/10/kenya.crash/index.html
    
    
    After the burial of my father, my stepmother and uncle conspired and
    sold my father's property to an Italian Expert rate which the shared
    the money among themselves and live nothing for me. I am constrained
    to contact you because of the abuse I am receiving from my wicked
    stepmother and uncle. They planned to take away all my late father's
    treasury and properties from me since the unexpected death of my
    beloved Father. Meanwhile i wanted to escape to the USA but they hide
    away my international passport and other valuable travelling
    documents. Luckily they did not discover where i kept my fathers File
    which contains important documents. So I decided to run to the refugee
    camp where i am presently seeking asylum under the United Nations High
    Commission for the Refugee here in Ouagadougou, Republic of Burkina
    Faso.
    
    
    One faithful morning, I opened my father's briefcase and found out the
    documents which he has deposited huge amount of money in bank in
    Burkina Faso with my name as the next of kin. I travelled to Burkina
    Faso to withdraw the money for a better life so that I can take care
    of myself and start a new life, on my arrival, the Bank Director whom
    I met in person told me that my father's instruction/will to the bank
    is that the money would only be release to me when I am married or
    present a trustee who will help me and invest the money overseas. I am
    in search of an honest and reliable person who will help me and stand
    as my trustee so that I will present him to the Bank for transfer of
    the money to his bank account overseas. I have chosen to contact you
    after my prayers and I believe that you will not betray my trust. But
    rather take me as your own sister.
    
    
    Although, you may wonder why I am so soon revealing myself to you
    without knowing you, well I will say that my mind convince Ed me that
    you may be the true person to help me. More so, my father of blessed
    memory deposited the sum of (US$11.500, 000) Dollars in Bank with my
    name as the next of kin. However, I shall forward you with the
    necessary documents on confirmation of your acceptance to assist me
    for the transfer and statement of the fund in your country. As you
    will help me in an investment, and i will like to complete my studies,
    as i was in my 1year in the university when my beloved father died. It
    is my intention to compensate you with 30% of the total money for your
    services and the bala nce shall be my capital in your establishment.
    As soon as I receive your positive response showing your interest I
    will put things into action immediately. In the light of the above. I
    shall appreciate an urgent message indicating your ability and
    willingness to handle this transaction sincerely.
    
    
    AWAITING YOUR URGENT AND POSITIVE RESPONSE, Please do keep this only
    to your self for now un till the bank will transfer the fund. I beg
    you not to disclose it till i come over because I am afraid of my
    wicked stepmother who has threatened to kill me and have the money
    alone ,I thank God Today that am out from my country (KENYA) but now
    In (Burkina Faso) where my father deposited the money with my name as
    the next of Kin. I have the documents for the claim.
    please Reply to this email [elina.kipkalya@yandex.com]
    
    
    Yours Sincerely
    Elina kipkalya Kones

    I know why they do it but I would have thought that most of the gullible fools who fall for this would have been caught and wiped out by now. How wrong I am!

    Go take a look on the WSO threads on the WF to get an idea of how many dumb gullible fools you can get in one place, then think just how many of them must be lurking round the internet.

    I like the"tears and sorrows from my heart" part!

    I guess if you send a million emails just asking for money a few people will actually send it.
    Anyone here have spare change? :)
