We are so lucky, and good thing we’ve been treating Rufus right since he became part of our family. Take a look at the email he got this afternoon. From now on it’s filet mignon and not Iams!
My name is Mr. Francis Coulibaly, a Banker and accountant with BIAO BANK Abidjan Cote d’Ivoire. I am the personal accounts manager to Engr. MORRIS RUFUS, a National of your country, who used to work with an oil servicing company here in Cote Ivoire.

My client, his wife, and their three children were involved in the ill fated Kenya Airways crash in the coasts of Abidjan in January 2000 in which all passengers on board died. Since then I have made several inquiries to your embassy to locate any of my clients extended relatives but has been unsuccessful.

After several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to trace his last name over the internet,to see if I could locate any member of his family hence I contacted you. Of particular interest is this huge deposit with our bank here in,where the deceased has an account valued at about ($16,250,000.00 million US dollars).They have issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or the bank will declare the account unservisable and thereby send the funds to the bank treasury.

Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over last 2 years now, I will seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased since you have the same last names, so that the proceeds of this account valued at ($16,250,000.00 million US dollars) can be paid to you and then you and I can share the money.

All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us see this deal through. I guarantee that this will be executed under all legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law
If you can handle this with me, reach me now as soon as possible through this email address (

Thanking you for your anticipated cooperation

Mr. Francis Coulibaly

    How exciting. Just a warning: Once your dog becomes a millionaire, all his long-lost dog friends and relatives are going to come sniffing around looking for loans and stuff. Better keep extra Milkbones on hand.

    Don’t you just love how “Frank” wants your “honest cooperation” to present Rufus as a relative of a fictional person?

    Heh, heh, heh. This is too funny, but sad too. How many people do you think actually get all excited and “cooperate”? My BIL is usually the one who we have to try and bail out after all of his investments, etc. Hope you had a warm and fibery weekend.
