Yay!....I Can Finally "Retire" With My Newfound Wealth

Do these idiots REALLY think people are going to fall for this? They're either REALLY late jumping on the band wagon or they get at least one person b/c they're still sending it out to people. I think I'll call this # and see what they say.

FAX: +27 11 507 6910

Dear Sir/Madam,

Strictly Confidential

With great pleasure I am writing this proposal on behalf of my partners. A member of our government trade delegation to your country gave your impeccable profile to me. Hence I have decided to seek your cooperation, due to the sensitivity of this transaction and my commitment as a civil servant.

There is a program currently on, in the department where I work, inviting holders with proof of government indebtedness which stands at an envisaged accruing interest of One Point Zero Five Billion United States Dollars to submit same to enable their claims go through payment process. Some of these debts have been redeemed in their principal component leaving behind accrued interest portion unpaid.
Within the Department of Health, where I work, we have been able to track an accrued interest bill of Twenty Two Million Six Hundred And Fifty Thousand United States Dollars which we have in principle gotten an approval to remit overseas. This we can do by changing of beneficiary and other forms of documentation with application for claim to reflect the payment and approval to be secured on your behalf.
Our constraint is to be able to source an honest and trustworthy individual, to whom we can remit these funds and act as trustee pending our visit, since our period of disengagement from the civil service is near.

We are presently affected by the South Africa civil service code of conduct laws that prohibits civil servants from operating private foreign accounts. I have the authority of my partners in office to propose that should you be willing to assist us in this transaction, your share as compensation will be Twenty Five percent and Sixty Five percent for us while Ten Percent will be set aside for miscellaneous expenses.
This transaction is 100% risk free provided you treat it with utmost confidentiality. Furthermore, your area of specialization is not a hindrance to the successful execution of this transaction.

Kindly contact me on [email protected] to indicate your willingness in assisting us.

Yours faithfully,

I don't think calling the fax number will get you very far.

At least try to get them to take a picture of themselves with a pancake on their heads before you stop communications with them.
