    URGENT BUSINESS PROPOSAL

    Engineer Richard Sullivan
    Shell Petroleum South-Africa.


    Attn: THE PRESIDENT/MANAGING DIRECTOR/CEO


    I am Engineer Richard Sullivan, a Director of the Contracts
    Award and review Department with the Shell petroleum
    South-Africa. I am contacting you on the
    business of transferring the sum of
    US$20,500,000.00.(Twenty Million,five Hundred thousand
    United States Dollars only) into a safe foreign account and

    the need is very urgent. I got your contact from the
    South-Africa Chambers of Commerce and it is with business
    trust that made me to contact you on this
    matter. I write to solicit for the transfer of this money
    into your account. This Money was generated from an over
    Invoiced contract sum in my corporation.

    I am contacting you for your help and partnership for the
    following two reasons:
    (1) As a civil servant, I am not permitted to own foreign
    accounts due to civil service code of conduct.
    (2) My present financial resources as a civil servant will
    not be sufficient for me to handle the transfer alone
    successfully without financial assistance from a reliable
    foreign partner abroad like you. 20% of this sum would be
    for
    you as compensation for using your Bank account in
    transferring this money, 5% would be used to re-imburse the
    expenses made by both parties during the
    processing of the transfer which includes,telephone bills,
    travelling expenses and fees. While 75% is for me.

    Please note that I will arrange to meet with you
    immediately after the successful conclusion of the
    transfer, the 75% share of mine will be used for
    investment overseas. Your assistance and co-operation is
    highly needed. I assure you that this transaction is 100%
    risk free. If you are interested I
    will require your banking information as mentioned below:

    1. Name to be used as beneficiary and beneficiarys address.
    2. Your private and confidential telephone/ fax
    number(s)and Cell phone.
    3. Your bank name and address, your bank Telephone and fax
    number(s).

    I hope to conclude this business within the next fourteen-
    (14) working days.
    Looking forward to your anticipated and urgent positive
    response via e-
    mail. "josh.ibe1@caramail.com" or engr_ibe1@latinmail.com

    Best regards,

    Richard Sullivan

    Unfortunately it seems to be the elderly that get sucked into these things. It's sad.

    Anytime I get these, which is way to often, I forward a copy to:

    419.fcd@usss.treas.gov

    I doubt they do anything with it, but they asked...

    "You can't cheat an honest man."

    I get a lot of these emails. I never knew there were so many tens of millions of dollars floating around Africa.

    If I ever have more money that I could possibly do anything with, I'd probably export it from africa just to mess y'all up. :)

    This is a huge scam stemming out of Africa. We recently learned about this scam. Apparently there is a ring in Africa that suckers individuals by asking people to set up a bank account in order to transfer $millions then promise to pay you anywhere up to 25% for helping. Well after you set up an account they start nickel and diming you to death. Saying to send them $4000 for tranfer costs, etc. etc.

    This is an updated, international version of the "pigeon drop" scam. It's an old con, and appeals to people's greed. Frankly, I'm amazed that these things work at all--though I guess enough people are greedy, naive, and/or desperate enough to try anything.

    The funny thing is, if he got the name from the prime minister or whatever, that would mean that people who fall for this are actually believing the guy made an error in his email account (Since the 'victim' has nothing to do with Africa), and will take the money that was supposed to go to the supposed original contact.
