A Scam Email with the Subject "Urgent" was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Thu, 10 Dec 2009 07:58:35 -0800 and has been classified as a Advance Fee Fraud/419 Scam. The sender was "Omar Soltani"<firstname.lastname@example.org>, although it may have been spoofed.
My name is Omar Abdul Soltani from Tehran in Iran. On June 20th 2009, the government security agent killed my sister Neda at Nilofar Square during a peaceful protest. She was only 26 years old and had no intention of harming anybody by excising her right to protest against election rigging and government insensitivity to the will of the people of Iran. The brutal government of Ahmadinejad charged our family $25,000USD to retrieve the body of my sister and her burial rites was disrupted by overzealous police and government forces. It was a big loss for my family and my parents are yet to recover from the devastation. Because of the international outcry and sympathy of the people of Iran, Ahmadinejad and his agent have been harassing our family. My father was arrested several times; the security agents are watching my mother and my family business have been crippled. The government is doing everything possible to stop my father from voicing out his grievances. Due to the persecution, we have been able to move our family's liquid asset (over $20 million USD) to Spain from where we want to move it to a stable and safe economy. Ahmadinejad is a friend of the socialist government in spain and that is why we want to move the money out as soon as possible before they can get the filthy hands on it. My father worked so hard all his life and needs this money for his retirement and paying off our tuition. Therefore, we are looking a trustworthy, honest and capable person to invest and manage the fund in real estate or other lucrative ventures. If you think you fit what we need, reply me as soon as possible for more details. Please, treat this mail with absolute confidentiality because my family will be killed if the government of Ahmadinejad finds out. The government is doing everything possible to stop my father from voicing out his grievances. Regards, Omar - email@example.com
