Fake

I get quite a lot of searches that end up here because someone looked for fake stuff. Fake chicken is one such example. There are a number of others, some quite worrying. Fake Plastic Women, for instance. Well, here's a post that is definitely 100% fake focused!

Pal Carrington just got an email from a gentleman calling himself Jamal Jumeirah. It's the Nigerian Fake Letter Scam, only in Dubai form:

Dear Friend,

It is indeed my pleasure to write to you this letter, which I believe will be a suprise, as we are both complete strangers.

As you read this, I don't want you to feel sorry for me, because I believe everyone will die someday. My name is Jamal Jumeirah, a former merchant in Dubai, in the U.A.E. I have been diagnosed with Esophageal cancer which was discovered very late, due to my laxity in caring for my health.


It goes on at great length - the payoff being the usual deposit money in bank account 5% could be yours kind of thing.

It's not terribly creative, which is a shame. There are so many more interesting ways that Jamal Jumeirah could make you rich... or take everything you've got to give...

Yes jamal jumeirah has been writing to me as well. I always knew it was a scam but I just write back saying many things to him that we all die. And there is not a worry because God will take you to heaven anyways. I am not a person that doesnt know it is a scam but I would never give information to anyone just a encouraging letter or two. lol I will not write anymore because he never writes back just says silly things really. Jamal is not real and I already know this. So he wont get any information from me never. Thanks for telling me about this problem with these scammers it is a shame to do this to anyone.
