A Scam Email with the Subject "For Your Perusal" was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Thu, 26 Nov 2015 17:00:44 -0800 and has been classified as a Advance Fee Fraud/419 Scam. The sender was " Zakarria Adam"<firstname.lastname@example.org>, although it may have been spoofed.
I am Zakarria Adam I am contacting you because I have an investment
proposal that I think may be of interest to you. I represent the interest of
my brother in-law who is a former minister in the Syrian Government. As you
probably know, there is a lot of crisis going on currently in Syria and my
brother in-law has fallen out with the ruling Junta and he is currently
under house arrest or killed because he has been incommunicado for the few
weeks. While I am sure that he has not done anything wrong other than
publicly opposing the decision of the Government since the beginning of this
stupid war for using weapons of mass destruction on our own people and
killing innocent people senselessly.
Anyway, as a result of this war, he has planned for trouble ahead and has
made arrangement to secure his family's future in case the unexpected
happens. He has asked me to help him find a reputable foreigner who can help
him accommodate and invest a large sum of money privately. Hence my reason
for contacting you.
We need your help to accommodate and lodge the funds in the banking system
in your country. We will handle the logistics involved in the movement of
the funds to you. Please note that the entire business will be executed in a
legal way. My brother in-law has promised to compensate you handsomely for
your role if you agree to help in this business. He would also like for you
to help invest the funds in a profitable business in your country. He has
also instructed me that he wants this to be done discretely and he would
want to keep his identification confidential. I will be acting as his eyes
and ears during the course of this transaction.
I have decided to keep this short for now. If this proposal interests you,
please kindly respond ASAP so I can give you more details and we can also
discuss your compensation.
