  • One of them S.Africa mails

    Got a scammer...maybe string 'em along a bit... ?

    ****Dear friend,

    I am contacting you to front as a co-owner and beneficiary of funds
    (US$25,000,000.00) due for an executed contract here in South africa.

    I am currently a high ranking government official in the ruling cabinet
    of President Thabo Mbeki (South Africa).

    This funds are a result of over-invoiced proceeds of a contract I
    helped a South African based company secure and is yet to be paid out
    by the
    Reserve Bank of South Africa.

    This funds emanated as a result of an over-invoiced contract which
    Sentech (Pty)Ltd., a communications company executed with the
    Government of
    South Africa. I am afraid that the government of South Africa might
    start to
    investigate on contracts awarded from 2000 to date. If they discover
    this money yet unclaimed with my name linked to it, the government will
    confiscate the money and this will definitely affect my political
    career in Government.

    I want your assistance to front as a co-owner of this company (SENTECH
    [PTY] LTD) to facilitate the release of the funds. I will introduce a
    very
    good attorney to assist us with the transfer process without any hitch
    but
    he will not be told my interest in the transaction as I play a very
    sensitive role in my government. As the contract was executed
    in my present government department, be rest assured that I will use my
    position to approve the immediate release of the entitlement. As soon
    as the funds is release to your name, you are expected to move it
    immediately into your personal bank account in your country. As soon as
    you have confirmed receipt of the funds into your account, I will
    arrange
    to meet with you.

    If you agree to my proposal, please endeavour to send me an urgent
    reply to;[email protected]
    Due to my sensitive position in the South African
    Government, I would not want you to phone or fax me.

    The lawyer I will recommend to assist us will be representing our
    interest at the Reserve Bank of South Africa and all necessary
    quarters. All
    future correspondence must be made either to the attorney or myself.

    I am reposing huge trust on you regardless of your being a total
    stranger. Upon your reply, we shall discuss your percentage for
    your assistance.

    Because of my sensitive position as serving government official, I will
    only give you more details of myself when we proceed further and I am
    sure
    of your sincerity.

    Thank you.

    Dr. Ivy Matsepe-Casaburri

    MINISTER OF COMMUNICATIONS

    Honesty and transparency, they are my best work tools

    Remember THIS SCAM THE SCAMMER SITE from THIS THREAD?

    Awesome stuff there!

    Benny also posted this link to Nigerian Scam Baiting (The new Internet Bloodsport)

    Actually, since yours appears to be in South Africa, you might want to report it. South Africa has a fairly well respected government/law enforcement that might actually investigate it...

      Antoher scammer scammed....Full Article

      Eboh said he needed to get money out of Nigeria and was offering to transfer $US25 million to Mike's account if he would send his bank details. Mike was promised $6.25 million if he helped.

      Mike sent an email back, calling himself Father Hector and saying he would love to help but he could only have business dealings with members of his religious order, the Holy Church of the Order of the Red Breast.

      Eboh said, of course, he would convert. Mike sent him details on how to paint a red circle over his breast to join.

      Eboh duly sent Mike a picture of himself with painted breast and signed a membership form vowing not to covet his neighbour's ass, to never listen to hip-hop and to honour the words of church guru Shiver Metimbers. Eboh pleaded for $18,000 to register the church in Nigeria so he could transfer the $25 million.

      AdvertisementAdvertisementMike hit back, saying that under church rules he had to pay a clearance fee of $80 before he could withdraw $18,000. As a monk he had no money and asked Eboh for it.

      Surprisingly, Eboh sent Mike the money by courier, which cost him $49. Eboh was down $129. He then got a message from church elder Father Mike Myers saying Father Hector had run off with $18,000 in church funds.

        From the article:
        US police estimate $US200 million is conned from American citizens by this sort of scam every year.
        I've never been accused of being an optimist but I'd hoped there weren't that many stupid people living in America, or anywhere else for that matter. How absolutely brain dead do you have to be to believe that someone whom you don't know is going to randomly contact you and offer you millions of dollars?
