I got this email from a guy with all his phone numbers and stuff asking to open an of shore account said its confidental but id ont care. here it is

FROM:Mr Solomon



RE: TRANSFER OF ($26,000.000.00 USD]

Dear Sir,

We want to transfer to overseas account
($26,000.000.00 USD) Twenty six million United States
Dollars) from a Prime Bank here in South Africa, I
want to ask you, If you can look for a reliable and
honest person who will be capable and fit to provide
either an existing bank account or to set up a new
Bank a/c immediately to receive this money, even an
empty a/c can serve to receive this money, as long as
you will remain honest to me till the end for this
important business trusting in you and believing in
God that you will never let me down either now or in

I am the Auditor General of one of the prime banks
here in South Africa, during the course of our
auditing,I discovered a floating fund in an account
opened in the bank in 1996 and since 1998 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/WILL] 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 PEDRO F. HASLER a foreigner,
a great industrialist and he died since 1998.No other
person knows about this account or any thing
concerning it, the account has no other beneficiary
and my investigation proved to me as well that until
his death he was the manager GOLD ARK [pty]. SA.

We will start the first transfer with Six million
[$6,000.000] upon successful transaction without any
disappoint from your side, we shall re-apply for the
payment of the remaining rest amount to your account.

The total amount involve is Twenty six million United
States Dollars only [$26,000.000.00]. I want to first
transfer $6,000.000.00 [Six million United States
Dollar] from this money into a safe foreigners account
abroad before the rest. But I don't know any
foreigner, I am only contacting you as a foreigner
because this money can not be approved to a local
person here, without valid international foreign
passport, but can only be approved to any foreigner
with valid international passport or drivers
license and foreign a/c because the money is in US
dollars and the former owner of the a/c is a
foreigner too, and the money can only be approved into
a foreign a/c.

However, we will sign a binding agreement, to bind us
together when we meet face to face after the first
transfer of $6 Million before transferring the second
part of $20 Million. I am revealing this to you with
believe in God that you will never let me down in this
business, you are the first and the only person that I
am contacting for this business, so please reply
urgently so that I will inform you the next step to
take urgently. Send also your private telephone and
fax number including the full details of the account
to be used for the deposit.

I want us to meet face to face to build confidence and
to sign a binding agreement that will bind us together
immediately after the first transfer before we fly to
your country for withdrawal, sharing and investments.

I need your full co-operation to make this work fine
because the management is ready to approve this
payment to any foreigner who has correct information
of this account, which I will give to you upon your
positive response and once I am convinced that you are
capable and will meet up with instruction of a key
bank official who is deeply involved with me in this
business. I need your strong assurance that you will
never, never let me down.

With my influence and my position in the bank the bank
official can transfer this money to any foreigner's
reliable account that you can provide with assurance
that this money will be intact pending our physical
arrival in your country for sharing. The bank official
Will destroy all documents of transaction immediately
we receive this money leaving no trace to any place
and to build confidence you can call me for heart to
heart discussion through my private satellite phone
which I secured for the security and safety of this
business as you know that this business is
confidential.I will use my position and influence to
obtain all legal approvals for onward transfer of this
money to your account with appropriate clearance from
the relevant ministries and foreign exchange

At the conclusion of this business, you will be given
35% of the total amount, 60% will be for me, while 5%
will be for expenses both parties might have incurred
during the process of transferring.

I look forward to your earliest reply through my email

Yours truly

Yep. I received 3 or 4 times this email. If you check ATS, you'll find 1 or 2 topics on this subject. The last was coming from South-Africa and I send a copy to the AS embassy, they were happy !

It's ONLY BS. Don't call them, don't write them.Just put the mail in the bin.

Alas, Fan_D people in the past have fallen for it: greed does terrible things to one's eyesight.
The "Nigerian" scam (substitute sundry other African "democracies" has been around since the days of the FAX: and they keep trying.
I attach absolutely no credibility to the scurrilous notion that among the perpetrators are government officials who use their position to make the scam run more smoothly.

I did...Before I found out it was a scam. I didn't reveal any concrete facts about my financial staus & also told them I wanted to check with a lawyer to make sure it was nice-n-legal...

Their reply was that they wanted to maintain "confidentiality"...THEN I was told about the Nigerian Scam, researched it a bit & then sent a complaint & copies of all of their correspondence to the authorities...Under the category of "No Losses Incurred"
