Did anyone else get an odd, spam-like email from a Captain from the UK this morning?

Asked by Megan Manly, Nashville, TN Thu May 15, 2008

I received an email this morning from Trulia contact about a gentleman wanting to connect with me on a project that seemed very "DEAR FRIENDS, I AM INTERNATIONAL MILLIONNAIRE ANDNEED HELP SENDING MY RESOURCES AROUND THE WORLD." Any one else?

I got one recently from the King of Nygerea.... I didn't trust it because he couldn't spell the country right..other than that I totally beleived that his deposed family would reward me for wiring them thousands of dollars to a swiss bank account.

Did they have a profile(minimal of course) on Trulia.com ?? I received an odd e-mail today from someone with a LA profile. Here's what it said:

I am Mrs LC, I viewed your advert and found you trust worthy concerning the proposal I have at hand,I really need your help if you are willing my contact is below, mail me for more deatils.
I will be anxiously and eargly waiting to hear from you soonest through my private email address above.
Your Sincerely
Mrs. LC

How I wish it was a millionaire buyer from LA but I am sure just looking at the verbage that it is a scam and poor Prince Abdulla left all this money unclaimed that they need my help withdrawing and I of course will be handsomely paid RIGHT?? This is such an old scam-does anyone still fall for this garbage? Apparently so.

It just really irritates me that we have such a great forum here on Trulia and the scumbags of the world have to come trolling in here looking to rip someone off. Hopefully they won't go after our client prospects and ruin it for everybody.

Thanks for sharing everybody!! Thanks also for letting me vent for a moment!! :0) Oh yeah, I am happy to pay a referral fee to you for a real buyer or seller that needs assistance here in the Tampa Bay area!!! :0)

Hi Brian, I didnt' receive from Trulia, but I have from another source. What they want you to do is provide your bank account and credit card information so they can steal your money.

Hi Brian. I did not get one this morning, but have received similar e-mails through Trulia in the past. They are all scams and it's just annoying that they are going through Trulia to get to us.
