    I just received this crap via email...

    There was someone in the past who scammed one of these scammers back!

    It was documented and may have been a TV documentary in England.

    It provided great reading following the progress updates and emails and letters back and forth.

    Anyway, here's what I just received...

    Dear Friend,

    RE: TRANSFER OF [$$ US$48,223,000. 00]

    I feel quite safe dealing with you in this important business. Though, this
    medium (Internet) has been greatly abused, I choose to reach you through it
    because it still remains the fastest medium of communication.

    However,this correspondence is private, and it should be treated as such.

    At first I will like to assure you that this transaction is 100% risk and
    trouble free.

    My name is Mr.Gazi Rudman who works as the operational manager in account
    management section in charge of credit and foreign bills of one of the
    prime banks here in South Africa. On a routine inspection I discovered a
    dormant domiciliary account with a Balance Of (S$48,223,000.00) On further
    discreet investigation, I also discovered that the account holder has died
    long ago with his family on a fatal Auto-accident leaving no beneficiary to
    the
    account and no other person knows about this account.

    I am in close contact with the manager of the bank here who is my partner
    and he is willing to approve the transfer to any reliable and trust worthy
    foreigner with foreign bank account because the former operator of the a/c
    is a foreigner from Australia in particular. I am certainly sure that he has
    no writen or oral WILL attached to the account , no beneficiary and nobody
    will come again for the claim of this money. It is only a foreigner who can
    claim this money with legal claims to the account holder which I will
    provide to you if you are interested, therefore I need your cooperation in
    this transaction.

    The difference in country of origin is not a
    hindrance to the success of this transaction.

    I will provide the necessary information and documents needed in order to
    claim this money. I only need your cooperation as a foreigner to provide
    your safe bank account information for the transfer.

    All arrangement that will ensure a smooth transfer of the fund to the
    account which you are
    to norminate is already in place.

    You should also provide me with your direct phone lines for easy
    communication. I wish for utmost confidentiality in handling this
    transaction. At the conclussion of this transaction, your share will be
    25% of the total transfer sum, 70% for me and my partner while 5% will be
    set aside for any expenses both parties might incure during the process of
    the transfer. The fund will be transferred to your account in two parts.

    I will first transfer USD 20 Million to your account. I will fly over to
    meet you after the successful transfer for sharing according to the agreed
    percentages. I will have the remaining balance of USD28,223 Million
    transferred to your account only after the successful sharing of the first
    transfer without any disappointment from your side.

    You can also reach me on this tel number for more
    discussion,874-763-59-1425, or fax: 874-763-59-1426,It's a satelite phone,
    when dialing, do not add South African country code, only add your country's
    international dial out code.

    Let me hear from you URGENTLY.
    Yours sincerely,
    Gazi Rudman.

    Wow, you're lucky!

    Seriously, people have been killed over scams like these. The person who lost money has gone to the foreign country to get their money back, and were then killed by the scammer thugs.

    Hi this is Gazi Rudman. I was in the crapper and missed your call. Could you callback. My cheap satelite phone doesnt have caller id so I cant call you back. It can receive faxes though. Weird huh?

    Have a nice day!

    I still get about two of these a week. I enjoy the different variations and story themes, relating to either high international finance or sometimes more obscure issues like a problem within the royal family of Swaziland. Still its always someone asking your help to scam their government. Someone should publish these in a collection.

    The amazing thing is that anyone really ever gave any of this guys the information to steal from them.

    I actually received one in the mail years ago, before email. I passed it on to the FBI, who were actually looking into these scams.

    _________________________________________________________________

    Dear friend,



    I have a profiling amount in an excess of US$310M, which I seek your partnership in accommodating for me.


    You will be rewarded with 40% of the total sum for your partnership. Can you be my partner on this?

    INTRODUCTION OF MY SELF:

    I am Mrs. KIMAEVA LIOUDMILA, a personal secretary to Mikhail khodorkovsky the richest man in Russia and owner of the following companies: Chairman CEO: YUKOS OIL (Russian Most Largest Oil Company) Chairman CEO: Menatep SBP Bank (A well reputable financial institution with its branches all over the world)

    SOURCE OF FUNDS:

    The documents of the above funds in question was handed over to me to be used in payment of an American oil merchant for his last oil deal with my boss Mikhail Khodorkovsky. Already the funds have been deposited with a Finance Company in France, where the final crediting is expected to be carried out.

    While I was on the process, My Boss got arrested for his involvement on politics in financing the leading and opposing political parties (the Union of Right Forces, led by Boris Nemtsov, and Yabloko, a liberal/social democratic party led by Gregor Yavlinsky) which poses treat to President Vladimir Put in second tenure as Russian president.
    You can catch more of the story on this

    YOUR ROLE:

    All I need from you is to stand as the beneficiary of the above quoted sum and I will arrange for the documentation which will enable transfer the sum to you. I have decided to use this sum to relocate to American continent and never to be connected to any of Mikhail Khodorkovsky conglomerates.

    The transaction has to be concluded in 2 weeks before Mikhail Khodorkovsky is out on bail, Presently you maybe aware that Yukos Chief security officer has been jail for twenty years (20yrs) for money discovered from him.

    With this ugly situation i will not buy idea of phone discussion between both of us but at time goes i will introduce you to my only trustee legal adviser who will be able to speak with you.

    As soon as I get your willingness to comply through my Below private email address I will give you more details.
