We all are aware of the spam emails that attack our inbox almost on a daily basis. Most of the emails used to be related to advertisements. However, I found this interesting. It offered me the opportunity to earn 30% share of the 9.000.000 million transferred to my home country in return for my involvement in the transfer deal. How does this sound?
Are these people actually involved in illegal money transfer or are they just trying to trap you? One has to be careful with spam emails. If you happen to give your account numbers among others, you are dead. So, refrain yourself from dreaming with these emails which are either created to fool people or to loot people.
Here is what I got in the email:
May the blessing of God be upon you and grant you the wisdom and sympathy to understand my situation and how much I need your help. I am KAMARA FOFANA the first son of Taylor FOFANA former national security advicer to the ousted Sierria Leonean military head of state, Paul Koroma. I am writing to express my interest in real estate or landed properties in your country. Though my father died in detention a couple of months ago while been detained by the new government. Before his untimely death, he instructed me to leave the country for my safety and start up a business somewhere out side Africa.
The sum of (9.000.000 million ) US dollars was deposited in a security and finance company here in Dakar Senegal by my late father.Actually, I have never met you before, it was a friend of my father who happened to be present at his bural that adviced me to consider your country for my investments. After due consideration, I started searching the web side where I got your email address. No one else is aware of my proposal to you. Due to social, economic and political in stability in west African region, I decided to seek your assistance in transfering this money into your private or institutional account for investment purposes. I have all the vital documents that covers the deposit which could be faxed to you upon request. Transaction of this nature demands the highest trust and confidence between both parties. This transaction is risk free in the sense that. For your assistance in this transfer, I have decided to give 30% of the total sum involved and I will also compensate you with 15% for the inconveniences and for expenses that we may incure during the process. Your acceptance of this proposal or other wise should please be communicated through my E.MAIL address. Your quick response will be appreciated. However, if you are not disposed to assist, kindly distroy this letter to protect the identity and confidentiality of the parties involved.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
