This email with the subject "IMPORTANT PAYMENT NOTIFICATION" was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Thu, 12 Nov 2009 03:09:25 -0800 and has been classified as a Advance Fee Fraud/419 Scam.
The sender was Landman Anne <firstname.lastname@example.org>, although it may have been spoofed.
I am Mr.Landman Anne, a staff with the bank of Ghana, i and the chief accountant of our bank have arranged to deliver your total contract sum amounting to $10 Million United state Dollars. Why we did this is because according to information gathered from the bank's data base, you have been waiting for a long time to receive your money without success.
As I found out that you have met all the statutory requirements of the bank in respect of your payment, your problem is that of interest groups.
a lot of people are interested in your payment and those people are merely doing paper works with you and that explains why you receive fax, phone and email messages from different people in Africa everyday.
Also we found out that some of the officials of the bank and government have been extorting monies from you with the pretext of helping you to receive your money. I can assure you that this may last for years yet nothing happens if you do not do away with those officers that you call your partners and your attorney.
And for security reasons keep away from them to enable us arrange and delivery your cash at your doorstep.
the money is in two security proof boxes weighing 110 kg each, that is 220 kg for the two boxes, for security reason and as the boxes were padded and sealed with machine. We told the courier company that the boxes contains photographic and film substance and when open will loose its efficiency.
We did not declare money because courier does not carry money.
To this effect, you will send us a promissory note of compensating us to the tune of one million United States dollars ($1,000,000.000) along with your address for sending the boxes by courier. Please maintain top most secrecy as you donât need to discuss this arrangement with anyone.
do not ever tell anybody about this until you have the trunk boxes delivered at your doorstep, i will give you more security details regarding this arrangement if you accept this wiliness to work with you.
