When my let husband was alive he deposited the sum of us$13.8 Million Dollars in a security company here in Abidjan Cote d'Ivoere.And was registered as a family valuable because it was in a trunk box, presently this fund is in the costody of security company firlm.and I cannot think of anybody trying to kill me apart from my late husband business associate in order to inherit the money, because my son is only eight years old.

I will issue you the vital document that will prove to you the present beneficiary of the fund in the custody of ther secirity company. I hope that you will not bettered my only son if i chang the document in your name and make you the present beneficiary. After all the transfer my son will relocate to your country, Please all I need from you is to take my only son as your son, give him good education. even when I am know more. this mail is very urgent.

All I need now is for you to Investor this Fund for my only son.

I got it also. I believe a ban is in place. At this rate TouchArcade will be full of this within a month. I thought that TA was better than this, and we avoided this type of thing. Appearently not.

They just want your email address to spam you there.

I'm special, she, he, or they composed the same letter to me twice. I'm now investing my life savings(two iTunes gift cards and $3.84 usd) into this lovely spammers scheme. When I get my payoff I'm gonna buy urban tycoon.


Can't wait!

Maybe you could make it so you have to sign up to touchArcade from an iDevice. Might get rid of most unwanted visitors..

No, this wouldn't be useful because lots of users join TA before they get their iPod Touch/iPhone just to find out about some apps worthy of purchasing. This would make TA only available to those who already have the iTouch/iPhone... which isn't fair at all.

I didn't get the message, but I do agree we need to get rid of the spam(mer).
