OMG, another one

Recommended Posts

This time w/ an ironic twist.

From: "david harry" <davidharry1@msn.com>

Subject: urgent assistance

Date: Mon, 05 Dec 2005 13:38:28 +0000

 

Dear Sir,

 

I know that this email will surely come to you as a surprise, but I

will

crave your indulgence to view

it seriously and I apologise, but I hope that it will be a welcome

surprise. Before I run out of

steam, I will like to introduce my self and go straight to the point.

My

name is David Harry and

I am a banker. My primary reason for writing to you is to seek your

partnership/assistance in a business

transaction. I need your partnership and assistance because of the

following reasons: a. it is practically impossible for me to carry out

this business alone. b. you live in a foreign land far away from mine.

This should normally not be a requirement, but when you understand the

transaction then you will

understand why it is important that you live far away from me. c. The

amount of money involved in this transaction is US$18,500,000.00, which

is

too much for a man of modest means like my self to handle in my

country. I

believe from my few points above, you can begin to get an idea why I

need

your participation. Let me explain how the money, which is the basis of

this business I am proposing, came about. Before I became a deputy

director, some years ago I used to be Accounts Officer to some special

corporate customers. One of these very important customers of our bank

was Engineer Johnson Juan Creek an Amrican citizen, who had spent most

of

his years before his death working in Africa and mostly in Nigeria. He

died in a plane crash in 1996 in Nigeria. This money belonged to him.

Technically speaking now,it belongs only to his name. The money is

payment

he received for a contract he executed on behalf of the Federal

Ministry of

Works and Housing for the government (Installation of Pipelines in arri

Refinery). My reason for deciding to carry out this transaction is that

Engr. Creek did not mention any next of kin in any of the documents

held by

the bank for thenumber of years he had banked with us. Since 1996 we

have

searched for any body that could be related to Engr. Creek, I was

mandated

by the bank to search for a relation of Engr. Creek and I did this from

January 1997 to December 1999 after which the search was called off in

the

belief that soon a relative may turn up to claim his estate.

Nevertheless,

as it is, there is no relative. Now, the Chairman of thebank who is a

retired soldier has indicated his intentions for the money. During the

last

meeting of Directors and Deputies, he said that he would donate the

money

to a military trust if it is not claimed soon, this invariably means

the

continuous flow of more arms and ammunition. I know for sure that not

all

of the money will go to the military trust some will surely line his

pockets and that of anybody who is in support of his plan. My plan is

to

get a trust worthy person that can, under my constant guidance present

him

self as a cousin to the late Engr. Creek. I want you to note that your

citizenship does not matter; You do not have to be an American. The

papers

demanded by the normal procedure for the claiming of an inheritance

will

take care of everything. You will be sole beneficiary to the estate of

Engr. Creek. All I need is for you to follow my instructions closely

because I am experienced in inheritance matters here and I am on ground

here to advice you on every step until you receive the money. Then we

meet.

For your participation, we will allow you 30% of the gross. All

expenses

incurred in the process of this transaction will be deducted from the

gross

value

and shared at a commensurate ratio; this we will done at the end of the

transaction, because the

money is bonded. An estimated 10% or less will cover all incidental

expenses and we will take 60% for

ourselves. The most important thing to me right now is trust on both

sides.

Now the money is still in

the care of the bank, I hope the trust will still be there when we must

have legally established your

relationship as cousin to Engr. Creek and the money is paid to you. I

need

also to trust that you will

not tell people or your bank about this business. You will collect the

money first, then I get my share, then you can tell anybody what you

chose

thereafter. I shall need your help to invest in your

country; therefore, any experience you have in this area will be

beneficial. Surely, you must have some

questions or may be you just need further clarification. I will be

happy to

receive a telephone call from you or a fax message to this effect, this

will enable me explain further what the next step is and the general

plan.

I will also need your most confidential telephone number and fax

number,

if you have a mobile phone I believe it will help so that I can reach

you

anytime. Your positive and negative response is highly welcome.

 

David Harry.

I have taken a new attitude to these kinda emails:

 

Get their IP, find out their ISP, find out any other info I can on them (ie. whereabouts they live) and just send them an email back telling them their own IP, ISP, area they live in etc. and tell them to stop [insert rude word]ing spamming.

 

Sadly none of these people have ever written back to me, I'd love to hear one of their replies!

I agree.

 

Oh how I'd love to reply to him beginning "I know that this email will surely come to you as a surprise" followed by what I do [see post #2] :D

 

"Your positive and negative response is highly welcome" are you sure you mean that?!?

With IP in hand I've find a small number of these people amazingly have open shares on their box at that address inviting other possible responses :rolleyes:

Could you just say that you are related and entitled to %100 of the money and, your solicitor will be contacting him in person about trying to con you out of %70 of your money.

1veedo, the information you have is that of the ISP's.

 

I was uncertain when I looked at the lookup, however using a bit of intelligence I found this:

http://www.multilinks.com/multilinks/contactinfo.html

Seeing as the company is multlinks, they must have a site, on which will be the contact details ;)

 

So we know his IP and his ISP, you could threaten to write to his ISP.

 

Use something like:

http://download.visualware.com/networkmonitoring/index.html

(Get the one called VisualRoute... I don't know if it's a demo or not, it may try to make you pay or something)

or the online version:

http://visualroute.visualware.com/

to see whereabout he lives.

There's the standard:

 

"I'm glad to hear it, give me your bank details and I'll withdraw the money. Thanks"

Wow, they're getting more original. This time they've got my last name wrapped into the message and a reason to actually contact me.

 

The guy Christopher Purchace QC is a real person in Crown Office Chambers, some English company. 217.146.177.167 is a Londer mirror for Yahoo.

 

Google

 

I don't know how he found me, "azevedo," because google / yahoo doesn't show my site with that querry in the first few pages. Google also doesn't seem to show any spam for it. I almost trashed it but for some reason it seems for real. I could give him my telephone number and find out but I don't think it's worth my time.

From Christopher Purchas QC, Crown Office Chambers UK.

 

I know we have not met in person but I have a very

profiting proposal which I am sure you can handle. I

am a member Barrister with the Crown Office Chambers

in London United Kingdom and I am only contacting you

to help claim deposited funds made by one of our

clients who was involved in a fatal auto crash which

killed him and his entire family in 2003. You must

communicate with me using the above email address.

 

Late Mr. Mark Azevedo was a personal client of mine

and I managed all his legal affairs. As of today, I

stand as the only custodian to the deposit he made in

a finance company and now I am faced with the task of

providing a beneficiary for the fund. The amount in

the deposit is $12,000,000 (Twelve Million United

States Dollars Only)

and the finance house is ready to release the money to

whoever I present as the true fund beneficiary and

next-of-kin to my late client because my late client

issued me a Power of Attorney duly endorsed in the

British High Courts of Justice when he made the

deposit and I was his legal advicing councellor on the

deposit and other issues.

 

Now the finance house where my client deposited the

fund demands that I quickly provide a claimant for the

fund because the deposit duration has expired and

needs a renewal or withdrawal from their company

otherwise it will be handed over to the government.

Because I have since not be able to provide anyone due

to my fears of releasing to money to someone who

mightrun away with it, I am being very careful about

this. I have however decided to try and do this deal

with you whether you are truly related to my client or

not and I pray you will not run away with the money

when they release it to you. I will arrange to

formalise your papers so that you can be approved as

next-of-kin to my late client and the fund can be

released to you immediately.

 

We shall draw an agreement between you and me for

security of the fund sharing when it is released to

you. I agree to a fifty-fifty sharing but we must bear

serious responsibilities on both sides to ensure the

release of the fund to you. I want you to note that

this is a very serious deal and not a child's play and

this time the money must be released because it is

truly existing in the finance company.

If you feel we can sign out the funds together,

quickly send me your phone and fax and I will call to

give you the details of the deal and send you the

relevant transaction documents.

 

Regards,

Christopher Purchas QC

I still think it's a scam. The guy could easily impersonate some English dude.

 

What I want to know is why he doesn't just look up my phone number. And why me out of all the azevedos?
