OK this is seriously OT but might be worth a giggle.......
makes a change from the dozen or so normal 417s I discard every week on your

Dear Sir,

My name is Haja I am a 23 years old and a British citizen who was taken to
Brunei by my father at the young age of 12. He
deceived me that I was going there on vacation and later married me off to a
wealthy Prince in Brunei who is 30 years older
than me.

I was thus forced into marriage and when I objected I was beaten and raped
this Prince. I was locked up in a house for two
years after which I submitted and decided to accept my faith, knowing that
the only way out.

After I got my freedom back I have been allowed by my husband to have access
to his businesses. Over the years I am been able
to acquire  some money $16,000,000.00 ( Sixteen million dollars),which I
diverted into a private finance house in Darussalam
without his knowledge.

Right now I have mapped out a plan of escape out of Brunei, first of all I
want to move the fund out of the Brunei. This is
where I need your assistance, I will move the fund out of Brunei on your
through a Cargo courier company to Europe to
avoid been detected by my husband. After which you will help me secure the
fund before I get out of Brunei.

If you know you are capable of handling such a huge amount of money respond
to me and I will compensate you by giving you 10%
of the total fund.

Note also that you must keep this transaction secret as my life is at stake
my husband or any of his relatives hear of this
transaction they will stone me to death or hang me.

I await your quick response. ( dot24@mail.com  or  800y2k@mail.com )

Yours faithfully,

Haja Laila
