    Email Scams...

    Oh my. Whatever shall I do? The Prince is asking for my help to get his boxes of money. Oh my.

    Dear
    I got your reliable contact from a business diary and further explicit investment information about your country. I am Prince Fayad S. Bolkiah, the eldest son of Prince Jefri Bolkiah, former Finance Minister of Brunei, the tiny oil-rich sultanate on the Gulf Island. I will save your time by not amplifying my extended royal family history, which has already been disseminated by the international media during the controversial dispute that erupted between my Father and his step brother, the sultan of Brunei Sheik Muda Hassanal Bolkiah.


    As you may know from the international media, the sultan had accused my father of financial mismanagement and impropriety of US$14.8 Billion dollars. This was as a result of the Asian financial crisis that made my father's company Amedeo Development Company and government owned Brunei Investment Company to be declared bankrupt during his tenure in office.


    However my father was kept under house arrest, his bank accounts and private Properties including a crude oil export refinery were later confiscated by the sultanate. Furthermore during this unfortunate period, I was advised to evacuate my immediate family outside the sultanate to avoid further prosecution from the sultan and his security operatives, but before I could do that I was placed under house arrest by the Sultan and have no access to a phone but I have a Palm hand-held computer from which I am sending you this mail.


    Some of the guard here are still loyal to me, so they would be my contact with you if there is any document I need to send to you to enable you collect the boxes of money on my behalf. Before my incarceration, I went ahead to dispatch the sum of Five Hundred Million United States Dollars (US$500,000,000.00) in cash under special arrangement into the custody of different private security and Trustee companies for safe keeping abroad. Just like an unspecified amount of money Sadam Husseine took out of Iraq in cash .


    The money were splited and kept in the following countries in this proportion: US$ 100 Million is in Switzerland,US$200 Million is in Spain, US$100 Million is in Britain,US$100 Million is in United Arab Emirate and the balance.

    Hence I seek your good assistance to invest these funds into profitable investment in your country to facilitate future survival for my family abroad. After due deliberation with my aids we have decided to offer 20% of these funds to you as compensation for your strong cooperation while 5% have been mapped out for both local and international expenses that may be incurred during this transaction.


    Please I count on your absolute confidentiality, transparency and trust while looking forward to your prompt reply towards a swift conclusion of this business transaction. You may contact me so that i will let you know the next thing to do.


    Many Thanks and may Allah's blessing remain with you.

    I remain Your's in brotherhood,

    Prince Fayad S. Bolkiah.

    Re: Email Scams...

    Well, there are a couple of possibilities.

    Personally, I enjoy copying the 'reply' address into one of my free anonymous email addresses and replying to said scammer by saying 'thanks, am interested, please tell me more'. Then wait for the second cut-n-paste email to be sent, and the third, etc. I do enjoy wasting a scammer's time safely and legally. Every minute he spends emailing me on a cyber cafe computer is a minute he is not spending scamming victims. Since scammers have to pay for computer time in cash, I am also wasting his money. This hobby is called 'scambaiting'.

    Speaking of, just what is that scammer's email address?

    Another option is posting said scammer's email address and the email itself on all kinds of scam-busting type sites, thus making his scam google-able.

    Dear Beloved ,

    I am Mrs. Turi Dano currently residing in the United Kingdom. I was married to Late Baba Dano of blessed memory who was an oil explorer before he died.

    We were married for twelve years without a child, he died after a brief illness. Since his death I too have been battling with Cancer problems because of the shock I received from my husband's death. When He was alive he deposited amount of money with a bank in the United Kingdom which I inherited after his death as the next of kin.

    Recently, my doctor told me that my days are numbered due to my ailment.
    Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund which I inherited from my late husband to a devoted God fearing individual that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct therein. I want you to use this money in all sincerity to fund charity homes. I took this decision because my husbands relatives are after me because of the money and I don't want a situation where this money will be used in an unholy manner, hence the reasons for this decision.

    I don't need any telephone communication in this regard because my doctor has warned me never to have contact with telephone or any call because of the condition of my health. As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you further directives on what to do and how to go about actualizing this project through my attorney who will file an application on your behalf to the bank for the transfer of the money to you.

    Until I hear from you My dreams rest squarely on your shoulders.

    Remain blessed,

    Mrs. Turi Dano .

    Now this is the first time I've seen the shock of someone's death causing cancer, and a doctor warning a person not to have any contact with a telephone...

    Another good one...
    NEDBANK

    NEDBANK PRIVATE BANKING



    ATTENTION: Dear Friend.



    I have initially sent you this message but until now, I have not heard from you. I am quite sure that this mail will come to you as a surprise. Nevertheless you have nothing to worry about, though I have not been having previous correspondences with you. I am Dr. Reuel Jethro Khoza and I am the Non-executive Chairman Board of Directors (Ned Bank) ofSouth Africa.



    Actually you can know more about me in my Banks website,Nedbank Group | Board of directors



    An American Gold consultant/contractor with the South African Solid Gold Corporation,Mr. Faik Aziz, a Turkish citizen, made a numbered time (Fixed) Deposit for forty eight months of four years also with the interest, valued at US$16,000,000.00 {Sixteen Million United State Dollars} in my branch of the bank.



    Upon maturity, I sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but got no reply. After a month, we sent a reminder and finally we discovered from his contract employers, the South African Solid Gold Corporation that Mr. Faik Aziz, a Turkish citizen, died in a plane crash with Turkish Airlines on his way to Turkey from Amsterdam (for more information about this crash you can visit website;



    At least nine killed as Turkish Airlines plane crashes near Amsterdam | World news | guardian.co.uk. since we got this information about his death. On further investigation, I found out that he died without making a WILL and all attempts to trace his next of kin were fruitless. I therefore made further investigation and discovered that Mr. Faik Aziz, did not declare any next of kin or relations in all his official documents, including his Bank Deposit paperwork in my Bank, This sum of (US$16,000,000.00) is still sitting in my Bank and the interest is being rolled over with the principal sum at the end of each year.



    No one will ever come forward to claim it. According to Laws of Republic of South Africa, at the expiration of 10 (Ten) years, the money will revert to the ownership of the South African Government if nobody applies to claim the fund.



    I am seriously against returning this old Manís Sweat to the Govt. Account; this is to avoid any of the top political Officials from stealing this money from the Governments. Account, and so I have decided to forward (Transfer) this money to your overseas account. And I would like to transfer the (US$16,000,000.00) (Sixteen Million United State Dollars) into your overseas account as a foreigner because Mr. Faik Aziz, was a foreigner, after which I will be joining you in person for disbursement and investment opportunity which you will be an asset to it and a caretaker as well.



    I am only contacting you because of your foreign status as this money cannot be approved to a local bank here, but can be approved to any foreign account because the money is in a foreign currency (US dollars) and former owner of the account, Mr. Faik Aziz, was as well a foreigner.



    Because of the need to involve a foreign account, I need your full co-operation to make this work fine because the management is ready to approve the payment to whoever has the correct information to this account, of which I will give you later, if you are able to handle such amount in strict confidence and trust

    please do contact me immediately for us to proceed without delays so that this money will be transferred to your account, so that we can share it accordingly.



    I agreed that 35% of this money would be for you as foreign partner, while 60% will be for me, and 5% will be for any expenses incurred for the both party. Please note that I don't have any asses to withdraw any cent from this money due to that the money was insured by the owner Mr. Faik Aziz



    I am waiting for your quick response for us to proceed, thank you.

    Email: drreueljethrokhoza@gala.net



    YOURS TRULY,

    Dr. Reuel Jethro Khoza.

    Chairman Board of Directors
    NEDBANK GROUP (SA)
