Also dieser Spam wird auch immer einfallsreicher. Und diese persönliche Ansprache. Fast wäre man(u) ja versucht… 😉
Unangenehm vor allem: Die entsprechende E-Mail ging nicht etwa an mich (und meine Mailaddi ist ja nun nicht soooo schwer herauszufinden), sondern lief mit Betreff an mich über die Mailaddi der Schule. DAS befremdet mich dann allerdings doch sehr. WTF!
(von einer pseudo-offiziellen yahoo-Mailaddi und mit ebenso pseudooffiziellem Absender vor dem Text gesendet:)
Please kindly accept my apology for sending unsolicited mail to you. I believe you are a highly respected personality, considering the fact that I sourced your profile from a human resource profile database on your country. Though, I do not know to what extent you are familiar with events. Well, I am SALIFOU SIGO a Solicitor and the Personal Attorney to Late Mr.Peter Schauerhammer, a national of your country, who used to work as the Director of Societe Nationale pour la Promotion Agricole(SONAPRA), the major national cotton production company in Benin Republic.
On the 1st of Oct 2004, my client, His wife and their three Children were involved in a car accident Along express-high way. Unfortunately, they all lost their lives. Since then I have made several enquiries to your Embassy to locate any of my client’s extended relatives, this has also proved unsuccessful.
After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to trace his relatives over the Internet to locate any member of his family but to no avail, hence, I contacted you to assist in repatriating the money and property left behind by my client before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable by the Bank here. These huge deposits were lodged particularly with the AFRICAN INVESTMENT BANK (AI B-SA), where the Deceased had an account valued at about $17.000.000.00 (Seventeen Million Dollars Only).
The Bank has issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have the account confiscated. Since I have been unsuccessful in Locating the relatives for over Five years now, I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased since you have the same last name with him so that the proceeds of this account valued about $ 17.million dollars can be paid to you and then the sharing ratio should be 50% for me and 50% for you, I have all the necessary legal documents that can be used to back up with our claim we will make with the Bank.
All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us seeing this Deal through and I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law.And the way we are going to achieve this is as follows, I will need the following information from you:
Your Full Name and Address,
Your Age,Occupation and Position,
Your Telephone and Mobile for Communication Purpose.
