I've decided to make an area of my blogosphere dedicated to those phishers in Africa trying to find that one gullible person into giving them their bank acount information so they can "deposit" millions of dollars into it. Here's one of them:
I have a proposal for you - this however is not mandatory nor will I in any manner compel you to honour against your will. I am 50, and work with a bank (one of the African leading banks in the West Coast).
Here in this bank existed a dormant account for the past 8 years which belong to an American national who is now late Mr.Raymond Beck and Mrs. Dorene Beck who died on Egypt Air Flight 990.http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/americas/502503.stmSTATUS & NATURE OF TRANSACTION:
When I discovered that there had been no deposits nor withdrawals from this account for this long period, I decided to carry out a system investigation and
discovered that non of the family member nor relations of the late person is aware of this account. This is the story in a nutshell.
Now I want an account overseas where the bank will transfer this funds.Thereafter, I had planned to destroy all related documents for this account. It is a careful network and for the past eleven months I have worked out everything to ensure a hitch-free operation. The amount is not so much at the moment and plus all the accumulated interest the balance in this account stands at- (US$ 9.5 million US dollars).
Now the questions are:-1. Can you handle this project?
2. Can I give you this trust?
3. Can you finance this project, if so,What will be your commission? .
Consider this and get back to me as soon as possible.Finally, it is my humble prayer that the information as contained herein be accorded the necessary attention, urgency as well as the secrecy it deserves.
I expect your urgent response if you can handle this project.So if you can handle it,do get back to me immedately you receive this message with this email:Email:
