Get Rich Quick?

I got the e-mail below in my inbox yesterday. Now I've heard that you can't trust those letters from the people in Nigeria, but this one is from someone from Angola (not the small town near where I live, but the one in Africa). Although the e-mail address, and the server are from England.

Gee. I don't know, should I trust them...

Attn: I got your contact in my search for a trustworthy foreigner that will assist me with my present predicament, as I don?t even know whom to trust so I allowed the spirit of God to lead me. Firstly let me introduce my self. I am Mrs. Agnes Jonas Savimbi, wife of the late leader of the National Union of the total Liberation of Angola (U.N.I.T.A) who died on the February 22 2002 by the bullet of the ruling government troop. My late husband was controlling the northern part of Angola as a rebel leader which is blessed with a huge deposit of diamonds this my late husband used to his advantage, mining and selling these diamond to foreign individuals and government in return for huge amount of US Dollars and ammunitions that is part of the reasons couple with determination why he was able to sustain his troop for 30 years of civil war before his untimely death He left a huge amount of money which amount to $100m (United state dollars) he kept the money under my care in case of eventuality so that the future of me and our children will be secure. when we heard the bad news of his death his trusted aid moved me and the children and members of our family out of our hiding, we traveled in a fishing boat to Port Lois Mauritius from where I am making this contact., the money has been coded and secretly deposited in a security company and declared as ?FAMILY TREASURE? for onward courier to reliable foreigner in an advanced economy like your country for safe keep. I am offering you 30% of the total money if you will assist me to move this money out of Mauritius as the foreign beneficiary and provide a safe account, while I and my family will have 70%. I am assuring you that this transaction is risk free as we have put all the logistics in place to make it successful all we need from you is your co-operation and sincerity of purpose. You will be contacting my brother in-law Robert Savimbi for more details on how you are going to assist us conclude this transaction I gave him authority to assist me due to health reasons I am recovering from a traumatic attack since the death of my husband.

Hey Me Too! I think we should all get together and do a sting and make this guy pay for trying to dupe all of us. I wouldn't be surprized if Evil Glen has something to do with this!
