Beberapa hari lalu saya menemukan beberapa buah e-mail yang berada dalam bulk/spam di account saya di yahoo. Walau sudah berada dalam foldel spam, namun karena saya penasaran, akhirnya saya coba saja untuk melihat beberapa e-mail tersebut. Dan salah satu e-mail yang dinyatakan sampah itu membuat saya agak heran dan usil. Dalam e-mail tersebut saya diceritakan tentang kehidupannya dimasa lampau. Dan ditawari uang senilai 4,5 juta USD jika mau menolongnya. Saya yakin dia adalah penggombal nomor satu di internet, tapi untuk sekedar hiburan, tak apalah, saya akhirnya pura-pura bodoh dan menjawab e-mailnya. Semuanya (e-mail dia dan jawaban saya ) seperti ini :

Subject: Will you help. !!!
As you read this, don’t feel sorry for me, because it is the destiny of everyman to die someday.I am Hakeem Nazif a naturalised briton by birth and a business merchant based in the United Kingdom.I have been diagnosed with Esophageal cancer.
It has defiled all forms of medical treatment, and right now I have only about a few months to live, according to medical experts.I regret that I have not particularly lived my life so well, as I never really cared for anyone(not even myself), but my trade.Though I am very well to do, I was never open handed; I was always hostile to people and regarded them like they never had hopes of becoming as successful as myself.Now I know that there is a lot more to life than just prosperity.
I believe that when I am given a second chance to come to this world,I would live my life a different way from how I have lived it. Now that death is eminent, I have willed and given most of my belonging to immediate and extended family members, as well as a few close friends.I want Allah to be merciful to me and accept my soul. Hence I have decided to support charity work; this is what i want to be remembered for.So far, I have been able to reach out to a few charity organizations in the Singapore,Algeria and Malaysia.Now that my health has deteriorated so badly,I cannot do this myself anymore.
I once asked members of my family to aid me in giving of alms to those organizations catering for the less privileged in Bulgaria and Pakistan;they refused and kept the resources to themselves.Hence,I do not trust them anymore,as they seem not to be contempt with what I have left for them.
The last of my belonging which no one knows of,is the huge deposit of Four and half milion US dollars that I have in a safe keeping company abroad,which I will want you to secure and bestow to charity organizations.Please reply to my secured email address
For your time and devotion,I have set aside a tenth of this for you.
Yes, I will.
But, at first I just wanna know where from you know my mail address. And why don’t you trust your own family then choose me.
Didn’t you think that may be I was someone worst than your family that you know them before. You never see me and don’t know anything about me before.
And, if you feel that you need to be helped soon, and you think that only me who can help you now. Tell me please, what i should do to overcome your trouble. Re-replay this e-mail soon please I really appreciate and want to help you. Replay, soon please.
Coba anda lihat betapa judul e-mailnya memelas , kata-kata yang dia berikanpun seolah benar-benar nyata seperti itu adanya. Dan saya juga berusaha membalasnya dengan gaya yang seserupa mungkin 😛 Dengan tetap disertakan pemaksaan untuk membuat saya sedikit tahu tentang dia, walau diakhir dan di awal seolah saya benar-benar tertarik dengan uangnya 😀 *mampus lu*. Satu hal yang membuat saya sedikit tersenyum lebih lebar lagi. Beberapa hari kemudian setelah saya buka e-mail saya yang berada di pokoke.com™ e-mail serupa juga saya temukan, sama persis. Mampus. benar-benar mampus lu, dikira orang Indonesia gampang dikibuli apa. 😀
