Get Rich Very Very Fast?

pile of cash

And this is not a joke. I will tell you exactly what to do and what not to do, at the end of this article. But first, read on.

The story:
Recently, I have been receiving business proposals (via email) that have completely called my attention, in order to get rich very fast. What stroke me most about these proposals are that they are all identified (not anonymous) and extremely sophisticated. I read all of them from top to bottom and here are a few examples of these business proposals:

The case where I am a relative
I am xyz, an attorney at law. (…) A deceased client of mine, that shares the same last name as yours, who died as the result (…) I have contacted you to assist in distributing the money left behind by my client before it is confiscated or declared unserviceable by the bank where this deposit valued at Eighteen million dollars (US$18million dollars) is lodged. This bank has issued me a notice to contact the next of kin, or the account will be confiscated. (…) My proposition to you is to seek your consent to present you as the next-of-kin and beneficiary of my named client, since you have the same last name, so that the proceeds of this account can be paid to you. Then we can share the amount on a mutually agreed-upon percentage (…)

The case where I am a Business associate
(…) who was into Golds/Diamond export, before died last year after a brief accident. (…) he deposited one big trunk boxes containing us $9.5 million with other family valuables with security company (…) and registered it as art work belonging to his foreign partner who will be coming for the release and export to abroad. (…) this is risk free, legal and Genuine business. I ask for your assistance and permission to submit your name as my late father’s foreign partner for release of this consignment and transfer/export to your country for safe keeping and investment. I humbly ask for you to response immediately with your Telephone/Fax numbers to enable me forward to you all the neccessary documents concerning this deposit…. I have concluded to give you 20 % of the total money after the release of this consignment for your noble assistance.

The case where I am a Humanitarian (not that I am not)
….I was compelled to write to you under a humanitarian ground. My name is Mrs. XXX. I was born in ….. and I am married to Mr. YYY of XYZ Industries. We were married for 36 years without a child. He died after a Cardiac Arteries Operation. And Recently, My Doctor told me that I would not last for the next six months due to my cancer problem (cancer of the liver and stroke). Before my husband died last year there is this sum $7.8Million Dollars that he deposited with a Private Security Finance Company… Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to any good God fearing brother or sister that will utilize this fund the way I am going to instruct herein. Donate to orphanage, etc..

Ok. These are just a few examples of Get Rich Fast Schemes. Believe me, I have tons of them and all are more sofisticated than the other. Obviously, they all request for an immediate response were you will have to provide them with information to initiate such transactions. Some even comes from companies that are known and of which are certainly being victims of Identity Theft.

As promised, here are my suggestions for this one (aparently more than one) and only opportunity to get rich very fast.

What To Do?
Enjoy. Have a laugh. Read them all and learn how “calling someone an idiot” is done in a very diplomatic manner. Are you kidding me? These people have millions all over the place and they all want to give me a percentage just for portraying someone that I am not? That’s easy money, right.

What Not To Do?
Be adviced, be warned, DO NOT fall for this. They are online SCAMs, plain and simple. Avoid them and do not be tempted, because I know it is. There is unfortunately just no quick way to get rich fast in today’s world. Well, there is actually – can you come up with a new Google in say one month tops?
