It is understandable that you might be a little bit apprehensive because you do not know me but I have a lucrative business proposal of mutual interest to share with you. I got your reference in my search for someone who suits my proposed business relationship. I am Mr. Joseph Wong, bank officer with the Hang Seng Bank Ltd of Hong Kong. I will need you to assist me in executing a business project from Hong Kong to your country. It involves the transfer of money. Everything concerning this transaction shall be legally done without hitch.
Once the funds have been successfully transferred into your account, we shall share in the ratio to be agreed by both of us. Contact me on my confidential Email address (email@example.com) I shall furnish you with more information about this operation immediately I receive a positive response from you.

Thank you for helping us serve you better
NEVER click on a link in an email, navigate to the home page yourself. Also if you do think that you need to click on something, do yourself the favor and hover your mouse over the link for a few seconds, the lower left corner of your browser should show you the address where the link will take you. In this case it tried to take me to http:// www. dentonkukahiko.com/ /verify-account/ which as you can tell has NOTHING to do with Yahoo!. Another good hint about an emaisl validity is the icons in the email itself, a company such as Yahoo, will always have their logo in the email…this email didn’t have one.
Just do yourselves a big favor and always look twice at your email.s
Of course he’s a random friend who pulled my name from the internet Business directory….which one I want to know

Compliment of the day to you.( Mr.Saidur rahman ), I am sending this brief letter to solicit your partnership to transfer $10.5million US Dollars. I shall send you more information and procedures when I receive a positive response from you through my private email address ( firstname.lastname@example.org).
I’m impressed that they trust me that much. However I will point out a major mistake they made.
They give me a link to track the money order, It looks like a secure link because it is https, however Western Union doesn’t start addresses with a domain of wumt… they least they could have done is hide the link address under false text.
