I just spent a half hour cleaning out my spam email file. I kept the spam, I just deleted the duplicates, dating websites and coupon and store emails. I went from well over 1000 emails to 512. Do these people really believe that sending the same email 50 times will get my attention more than once?

Dear Beloved One, I sent you this email about two weeks ago and i got no response, so I am constrained to contact you again via the internet which has been severely abused by fraudsters over the years. My late husband was an oil-servicing equipment merchant, from Libya before his death, and presently I am diagnosed with chronic esophageal cancer in July 2011. My name is Mrs.Raisa Aban Jamal. Please do not think of this letter as one of those being sent around to ask for money later on. In the past one year I have been donating my money, to charity organizations in Malaysia, and India. Now that my health has deteriorated so badly, I cannot do this myself anymore. I once asked two members of my family to close one of my accounts and distribute the money to charity organizations in Indonesia and Southern Sudan, but they kept the money to themselves. So, if family can do that, why not trust a total stranger. I have one last bulk sum, totaling twenty million dollars $20m that I have with a finance security company in OuagadougouBurkina Faso. I need you to retrieve this deposit and distribute it to charity organizations to help earthquake and flood victims in Haiti, Japan, and AIDS/HIV orphans around the world. I have set aside 10% for your time and service. I do not need this money anymore as I have a short time to live. Please reply after reading this mail to enable me release the contact of my lawyer to you who knows about the fund, and have every document intact with him. My lawyer will direct you on how to go about things to ensure the fund is released to you Regards, Mrs.Raisa Aban Jamal
No bank, not even a country. How can I claim money when I don’t know where it is?

I know that this mail will come to you as a surprise as we have never met before, but need not to worry as I am contacting you independently of my investigation and no one is informed of this communication. I need your urgent assistance in transferring the sum of $11.3million immediately to your private account.The money has been here in our Bank lying dormant for years now without anybody coming for the claim of it.
I want to release the money to you as the relative to our deceased customer (the account owner) who died a long with her supposed NEXT OF KIN since 31 January 2000. The Banking laws here does not allow such money to stay more than 13 years,because the money will be recalled to the Bank treasury account as unclaimed fund.
By indicating your interest I will send you the full details on how the business will be executed.
Please respond urgently and delete if you are not interested.
I admit that I haven’t seen this one in a while, but they still need to work on their grammar.
