Please confirm this is a load of bull...

My curiosity would not have been piqued if my financial situation didn't totally suck at the moment... Please confirm my suspicion that this is someone's way of getting my personal information to go and do god knows what with it...

To: undisclosed-recipients:;

Oxfam Supporter Relations,
Oxfam House,
John Smith Drive,
Cowley, Oxford. OX4 2JY

The Oxfam Foundation, would like to notify you that you have been chosen by the
board of trustees as one of the final recipients of a cash Grant/Donation for
your own personal, educational, and business development. The Oxfam Foundation,
established by the Multi-Million groups and now supported by the Economic
Community for West African States (ECOWAS), United Nations Organization
Foundation(UNO) and the European Union (EU) was conceived with the objective of
human growth, educational, and community development. To celebrate the 28th
anniversary program, The Oxfam Foundation in conjunction with the Economic
Community for West African States (ECOWAS), United Nations Organization
Foundation(UNO) and the European Union (EU) is giving out a yearly donation of
US$1,000,000.00 (One Million United States Dollars) to 10 lucky recipients.
These specific Donations/Grants will be awarded to 10 lucky international
recipients worldwide; in different categories for their personal business
development and enhancement of their educational plans. At least 15% of the
awarded funds should be used by you to develop a part of your environment. This
is a yearly program, which is a measure of universal development strategy. The
objective is to make a notable change in the standard of living of people all
around the Universe. The Oxfam Foundation has been assured of highest
organization standard courtesy of the United Nations. It is our belief that we
can achieve a great positive change in the general welfare of the universe
through this program. That is why the foundation is doing everything possible
to get all recipients notified of their donation.

Note that your country is not the only country that is benefiting from this
donation. Beneficiaries have been chosen from countries from all continents.
The idea of this donation is that within ten years from now, there will be
notable richness among many unusual people around the world. This will give
many people the opportunity to get their lives to a stage where they had always
wanted. Kindly note that you will only be chosen to receive the donation once,
which means that subsequent yearly donation will not get to you again. Take
time and thought in spending the donation wisely on something that will last
you a long time. Recipients are only eligible to be awarded this donation once.
Based on the random selection exercise of internet websites and millions of
supermarket cash invoices worldwide, you were selected among the lucky
recipients to receive the award sum of US$1,000,000.00 (One Million United
States Dollars) as charity donations/aid from the Oxfam Foundation, ECOWAS, EU
and the UNO in accordance with the enabling act of Parliament. (Note that all
beneficiaries email addresses were selected randomly from over 100,000 internet
websites or a shop's cash invoice around your area in which you might have
purchased something from).

You are required to fill the form below and email it to our Executive Secretary
below for qualification documentation and processing of your claims. After
contacting our office with the requested data, you will be given your donation
pin number, which you will use in collecting the funds. Please endeavor to
quote your Qualification numbers (OFI-321-101-abc-07) in all discussions.

12.Qualification Numbers

Executive Secretary- Mrs. Diana Gucci

You are to keep this whole information confidential until you have been able to
collect your donation, as there have been many cases of double and unqualified
claim, due to beneficiaries informing third parties about his/her donation.
Finally, all funds should be claimed by their respective beneficiaries, no
later than 15 days after notification. Failure to do so will mean cancellation
of that beneficiary and its donation will then be reserved for next year's
On behalf of the Board kindly, accept our warmest congratulations.

Mr. Flo Kelvin
(Foundation Officer)

Re: Please confirm this is a load of bull...

A Google search for shows that that URL appears to be somesort of e-mail relay out of Oman.

Looks like others got the exact same e-mail back in NOV2007,
Plus a couple more.

I also noticed a e-mail addy in both messages. Per the WhoIs info is owned by MicroSoft.

Re: Please confirm this is a load of bull...

Oh my god

Are there still people out there who don't know yet about those b....t
e-mails ?

That's a big Joke, forget it. I receive such a **** about once a month, so by now I should be a Multi Millionaire I guess. :shocked:

Hope you did not supply any personal data or you can find your bank account as empty as a bears stomach after his winter nap.

They tell you they have chosen you? Just a "lucky pick?"

Email back and tell them you'd like the phone number and address of "Flo Kelvin" so you can send a thank you card. lol

Re: Please confirm this is a load of bull...

like.. doh harry. er... course its not a scam. A bunch of people you never heard of have decided to give little old YOU some money, for no reason, and informed you of it wityh a spam email. I'd send them your full bank details, including passwords pronto, if I was you.

Fortunately, I'm not a ****tard.

Re: Please confirm this is a load of bull...

Wow... I knew in my gut it was a load of crap, how any business in my community would give information off of cash invoices? hello, usually if you pay cash around these parts, well, you get a cash receipt and that's it. Furthermore it just reeks of being a load of crap. Thus, my asking for confirmation, seeing how my nose is stuffy and my sense of smell at the moment is, well, lacking. :devil:

I get about two of those 'Help my husband was assasinated and blahbitty blah blah blah I want to put his money in your account so that somethign terrible doesn't happen to it' emails a week. But this one was different. The mere fact that were it actually associated with OXFAM it would have come from an email instead... I'm not a complete retard, believe it or not, just thought this was a bit more creative than the usual stuff they send out.

And no, the only information I will send the a#$hole responsible for gunking up people's email boxes with this crap would be a big F U.

Gotta keep it simple.

Re: Please confirm this is a load of bull...

Although the grammar is better than most, this is about the stupidest 419 letter I've ever seen.
I bet OXFAM wouldn't appreciate it either.
An organization dedicated to alleviating poverty is going to use donations to make 10 millionares? How f'ing ridiculous. That's like "Feed the Children" using $10 million of their donations to produce 10 big fat kids.
