This email with the subject "GOOD DAY" was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Thu, 29 Apr 2010 08:59:34 -0700 and has been classified as a Advance Fee Fraud/419 Scam.
The sender was "Mr. Larry James"<firstname.lastname@example.org>, although it may have been spoofed.
My name is Mr. Larry James, the chairman of the World Bank delegates sent to African for auditing of foreign African reserve accounts to control on the issue of money Laundering, Scam, and Bank Fraud with the African Government that is going on presently. I am presently in Nigeria now for the exercise.
Pardon me for not having the pleasure of knowing your mindset before making you this offer and it is utterly confidential and genuine by virtue of its nature. I write to solicit your assistance in a funds transfer deal involving US$3.5M.
This fund has been stashed out from the funds we recovered during our auditing with African Banks this year after paying their foreign contract /inheritance depts. So far, I have already submitted an approved end of the year report to the World Bank and United Nations that sent us.
I have since then, placed this amount on a Non-Investment Account without a beneficiary with International Commercial Bank Plc Accra Ghana waiting for claim without the knowing of any body.
Upon your response, I will configure your name on the Central Computer database under better arrangement as holder of the Non-Investment Account and I will then guide you on how to apply to the head office for the Account Closure/ bank-to-bank remittance of the funds to your designated bank account.
Note: This Ten-man committee was appointed after the meeting held by the United Nation, African Union, IMF and African Apex Bank Governors and, our assignment is to audit every African Bank foreign reserve accounts to know how much they are fairing with the economy standard and to know how much they owe foreigners of their contracts and inheritance fund which is the most reason we are appointed for this job pending on the foreign individual petitions and reports against African Government as towards the delays in receiving their contract and inheritance funds after much efforts.
Not withstanding, we were able to recovered and return some funds to the United Nations after studding some foreign payment files, which most of their claims are not genuine and clearly stated since they have not good source of origin in the case of some malpractices by some officials to siphon Government funds with the help their foreign partners.
If you concur with this proposal, I intend for you to retain 30% of the funds while 70% shall be for me.
Mr. Larry James.
