I'm set for life. Check out this e-mail I just got:


Dear Friend,

My name is LOI E.ESTRADA,The wife of Mr. JOSEPH
ESTRADA, the former President of Philippines located in the South East Asia.

My husband was recently impeached from office by a backed uprising of mass demonstrators and the Senate.

My husband is presently in jail and facing trial on charges of corruption, embezzlement, and the mysterious charge of plunder which might lead to death sentence. The present government is forcing my husband out of Manila to avoid demonstration by his supporter.

During my husband\'s regime as president of
Philippine, I realized some reasonable amount of money from various deals that I successfully executed. I have plans to invest this money for my children\'s future on real estate and industrial production. My husband is not aware of this because I wish to do it
secretly for now.before my husband was impeached, I secretly siphoned the sum of $30,000,000 million USD (Thirty million United states dollars) out of Philippines and deposited the money with a security
firm that transports valuable goods and consignments through diplomatic means.

I am contacting you because I want you to go to the security company and claim the money on my behalf since I have declared that the consignment belong to my foreign business partner. You shall also be required to assist me in investment in your country. I expect you to declare what percentage of the total
money you will take for your assistance.

When I receive your positive response I will let you know where the security company is and the payment pin code to claim the money which is very important.

For now, let all our communication is by e-mail
because my line are right now connected to the
Philippines Telecommunication Network services. Please also send me your telephone. I will ask my son contact you to give you more details on after i have received a responce from you.

Regards,
Loi E. Estrada

Forward these type of scams to the Secret Service it may give them fresh leads to help grab these people as they tend to move around alot. They have caught a few, and some lead to bigger fish.
