The Most Hilarious Spam Ever
I’m glad Gmail didn’t pick up on this one.
Dear Friend ,
I am Mrs.Ruth Madoff, wife of bernard madoff.
I am actually going through some kind of difficult time with my family right now, as my
husband is at the Metropolitan Correctional Center, New York City.
My husband’s Sentencing is scheduled soon and he is likely to face a maximum sentence
of 150 years in prison and $170 billion in restitution, so there is need for me to move
out alot of my personal funds and personal belongings around the world , particularly
from outside america, but i need somebody to trust now, because i cannot receive funds
here in america right now.
I would need your assistance in acquiring some of my money and keeping some large cash
amount for me. but first i would prefer to hear from you relating to the above
This is very urgent, i would have to entrust a large amount of money into your hands.
But this would have to be very confidential, just between me and you, because the press
are after me and my husband name all over the headlines, because of his Wall street
Anyway,don’t be scared about the risk, it is a very safe deal and we should work to
protect our interest.
Mrs. Ruth Alpern Madoff
This was probably eerily similar to his quarterly letter to investors.
