This Advance Fee Fraud email really takes the cake because of the effort that the criminal has put into it. He has used every Islamic term in the dictionary, yet asked blatently for money at the end of the message. Even though he says he is in Nigeria, I traced the IP Address back to Belgium. Nice try!

I completed my High School in 1996, since then I havebeen facing the most difficult Turning Point of my Life. My Parent arevery Poor and old that they cannot provide us foods, how much morefurthering our Education. Since the Completion of my school, I was unable to continue myEducation because there is no one to help, I tried all what I could toFurther my Education into the University but all effort is a Bunch ofFailures, I am brilliant but my Brilliancy couldn’t be Manifested, Istarted Hawking Packed Water just to Gather Money for my Education butthe Money I get goes for Food for myself and my Parent because there isLess Profit and Much Stress and no one is ready to Employ Schoolcertificate Leaver into any Industry, I have been in this Hawking forthe Past 7 Years and this is Eight Year. I was unable to continue theHawking due to the Much Stress and the illness I encountered throughthis with my Idleness I found myself in Huge Debts owing bothChristians and Muslims in Neighborhood, the Debt was due to Treatmentof my illness and for food when I was unable to control the Hunger andI cannot eat what is Haram. I owe more than 20 people a Huge Sum ofDebt.The Major Reason why I am sending this Extremely Emergency Mail to youis that, the People I am owing are giving the Most Unrest of my Lifeboth the Christians and Muslims, Since the last couple of weeks Icannot point to any valuable Ibadah I have observed, I have been inFear, Frustrations to extent that I have to ran away from home, Icannot walk openly, even going to the Mosque, I am hiding myself hereand there. I saw Hell on last Thursday when I witnessed another Tormentof Life of horrible Beating, Molestations and Disgrace. I wasdreadfullymolested to the extent that I was stripped to naked. My cloths wasteared and I was only left with just a Pant and Underwear singlet, withthis shame I have to run away from home with Tears and Broken Hearted,I have lost all hope of life and if not that it is a Great Sin tocommitSuicide I would have done that, I am tired of life. My Mother is inunrest crying, I cannot perform any Ibadah, go to Mosque because I amrunning from the people I owed even walk in the Street. As I am sendingthis mail you are the Last hope I have because I am almost forced intoStealing because these Problems are beyond my life, I am tired of Life.Coupled with these, I am in severe hunger, even the cloth I am puttingon is not mine, I borrowed it.

Allah bears me witness, the cloth, trousers, and slippers I am puttingon are not mine , the were borrowed, since I couldn’t take anythingwhen I ran away form home, I am tired of living as a street rat, myFaith, Ibadah, my Muslim Identity has been affected. I swear by the names of Allah whose Hands is my Soul, the money I usedin sending this mail to you in the CyberCafe was stolen, because Idon'thave anything even to eat is great problem, that is why I have sentthisExtremely emergency mail.Besides, I am living idleness, nothing to point at as means ofSustenance, which I am tired of living, I start a little trade, to earna lawful livelihood so that I cannot continue my Education, I sufferedso many years, lost so many years, I am tired of this, I don't want tofeed on Haram, how can I live as a Muslim without Job.
