Global Fund Transfer;
Do accept my sincere apologies if my mail does not meet your personal ethics although, I wish to use this medium to get in touch with yon but do take your good time to go through it. I am Mr Ahmed Yousuf, the Senior Foreign Remittance Director of a Bank, during the course of our auditing, I discovered a floating fund in an account opened 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 262003 website detailsasfollow:
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 &
steelindustries (PTY). SA.
We will start the transfer with the total suminvolved [ Twenty Five
Million USDollars [ USD] only, into your account, as a safe
foreigners bank account abroad, but I don’tknow any foreigner abroad
that’s why I have contacted you to bear the legal sole beneficiary of the
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 anofficial 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 write 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.
I am waiting for your reply on my Althertive email:
Best Regards,
Mr Ahmed Yousuf

Hmmm.. the email addresses don’t match, and he changes the spelling of his name…

Hmmm.. odd phrasing…

Hmmm.. he keeps mentioning Africa, but ‘dot hk’ is Hong Kong…

Hmmm.. he doesn’t mention the bank…

Hmmm.. that’s a LOT of money… and he did say all the documents will be destroyed… I don’t think anyone would notice if a computer tech suddenly deposited 25 million… Hmmm.
