  • E-mail scams continue in the New Year

    I got this toda:

    **This is my second email please respond to this private email address**

    Dear friend,

    The tender board is closing all offices for review of all 2010 soccer world cup projects by early second quarter of 2010. We must finalize before this date.

    My name is Comrade Solomon Luthuli as I mentioned in my first mail to you, if you did receive it. I am the chairperson of the Inaugural Tender Board Committee (TBC) on awards of contracts in the Department of public works here in my country RSA (Rep. of South Africa)

    Majority of the contract projects awarded during this period in my tenure are either finished or near completion. My challenge still remains the claim to a few kick-backs and gratification that is accrued to me from principal contractors, as par my agreement with the concerned companies. My initial mistake was not introducing a representative to stand in for me as the contract facilitator. More so, I could not do this except I was sure of a reliable person who would not give in to sabotage my name and that of my family. In this regard, I would prefer working with a neutral but trusted person from oversea who would appreciate this gesture.

    In brief, I have series of accrued monies to remit abroad , well in excess of $36.7 M but this will be done in bits (small amounts apiece) for easy of transfer. All matured funds are currently in a coded account at the countrys apex banking Institution. We can discuss a suitable split between us , bearing in mind that I have certain paybacks to other interested persons who stand as my political fathers, as my position is a political one. All I require from you is to guarantee safety of transferred funds in your country. On my part, I do guarantee all paper work to proof legitimate source of the funds (not money laundering).

    Should this offer be acceptable by you, please revert back to me strictly on this email: [email protected] or [email protected] l, can detail you on the whole process Kindly include me your private telephone if its ok with you at this stage, we can do emails until we have a mutual understanding and agreement.

    Till I hear from you.
    Trusting in confidence.

    With Regards,
    Dr. Sol Luthuli

      What's really pathetic is that there are still some people that will jump at this chance to make some money. It's almost like they deserve what they will get, scammed.

            They use a lot of official-sounding but meaningless verbiage in all of these. I gues some people fall for that.

                    Re: Transfer of $25,000,000.00)
                    (Twenty Five Million USD)
                    Email: [email protected]

                    Good Day ,
                    I am Mr. Abdul Azeez, the Senior & Auditor General of a Bank, during the course of our auditing, I discovered a floating fund in an accountopened in the bank in 2000 and since 2003 nobody has operated on this account again.

                    After going through some old files in the records I discovered that the owner of the account died without a [heir] hence the money is floating and if I do not remit this money out urgently it will be forfeited for nothing. The owner of this account is a foreigner, a miner and an industrialist. He made millions of dollars before he died victoriously .Since DEC 26 2003 website details as follow: <:http://www.cnn.com/2003/WORLD/africa/07/20/kenya.crash/>
                    and no other person knows about this account or any thing concerning it.

                    My investigation proved to me that the account has no other beneficiary and that until his death he was the manager director of aluminium & steel industries (PTY). SA. We will start the transfer with the total sum involved {twenty Five million dollars [$25,000,000.00 only, into your account, as a safe foreigners bank account abroad, but I don't know any foreigner abroad that's why I have contacted you to bear the legal sole beneficiary of the fund.

                    I am revealing this to you with believe in God that you will never let me down in this business. Also send your private telephone number and fax number including the full details of the account to be used for the deposit. I need your strong assurance that you will never let me down in this business proposition.

                    With my influence and the position in the bank, as an official whom is working in our favour we can transfer this money to any foreigner's reliable account which you can provide with assurance that this money will be intact pending my physical arrival in your country for sharing.

                    The bank official will destroy all documents of transaction immediately you receive this fund leaving and they will be no trace to any place and to build confidence you can wrote immediately to discuss with me the modalities,after I will make this remittance in your presented account and fix my resign date, to fly down to your country at least 7 days ahead of the fund transferred and confirm into the account.

                    At the conclusion of this business, you will be given 45% of the total amount, 50% will be for me, while 5% will be for expenses might have incurred during the process of transferring. Reply to my private mail, [email protected]

                    I am waiting for your reply.
                    Best Regards,
                    Mr. Abdul Azeez.

                        Importance: High

                        Dear Friend,

                        This mail may not be surprising to you if you have been following current events in the international media with reference to the Middle East and Palestine in particular.

                        I am Mrs. SUHA ARAFAT, the wife of YASSER ARAFAT, the Palestinian leader who died recently in Paris. Since his death and even prior to the announcement, I have been thrown into a state of antagonism, confusion, humiliation, frustration and hopelessness by the present leadership of the Palestinian Liberation Organization and the new Prime Minister. I have even been subjected to physical and psychological torture. As a widow that is so traumatized, I have lost confidence with everybody in the country at the moment.

                        You must have heard over the media reports and the Internet on the discovery of some fund in my husband secret bank account and companies and the allegations of some huge sums of money deposited by my husband in my name of which I have refuses to disclose or give up to the corrupt Palestine Government. In fact the total sum allegedly discovered by the Government so far is in the tune of about $6.5 Billion Dollars. And they are not relenting on their effort to make me poor for life. As you know, the Moslem community has no regards for woman, hence my desire for a foreign assistance.

                        I have deposited the sum of 20 million dollars with a security firm abroad whose name is withheld for now until we open communication. I shall be grateful if you could receive this fund into your bank account for safe keeping and any Investment opportunity. This arrangement is known to you and my personal Attorney. He might be dealing with you directly for security reasons as the case may be.

                        In view of the above, if you are willing to assist for our mutual benefits, we will have to negotiate on your Percentage share of the $20,000,000 that will be kept in your position for a while and invested in your name for my trust pending when my Daughter, Zahwa, will come off age and take full responsibility of her Family Estate/inheritance.

                        Please note that this is a golden opportunity that comes once in life time and more so, if you are hornet, I am going to entrust more funds in your care as this is one of the legacy we keep for our children.

                        In case you don't accept please do not let me out to the security and international media as I am giving you this information in total trust and confidence I will greatly appreciate if you accept my proposal in good faith. Please expedite action.

                        Yours sincerely,

                        Suha Arafat
