A Scam Email with the Subject "Re: The Transaction" was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Wed, 05 May 2010 02:45:43 -0700 and has been classified as a Advance Fee Fraud/419 Scam. The sender was "Juan Chavez"<firstname.lastname@example.org>, although it may have been spoofed.
I am Juan Chavez, a former servant to late General Augusto Jos? Ram?n Pinochet from when I was 9 years old in 1997 to 2006 when he died.
Before he died he get gave me a key to a safe and requested I take the content as a gift for my long service to him.
I was rather shock as the General is a very strict man even as his poor health kept him bed ridden for most of the time in his twilight years.
In the safe were Ten Thousand Dollars in cash and a certificate of deposit of the sum of Sixteen Million, Five Hundred Dollars (US$16,500,000.00) issued by a safe deposit company in Europe.
I have since used the Ten Thousand Dollars to further my education and now studying at the local university here.
Hence I need someone with more experience than me who help me with the collection of the Sixteen Million, Five Hundred Thousand Dollars as I have all the documents and vault access code needed by the company to release the money to you.
You will be required to:
1. Receive the funds in cash or into a bank account.
2. Purchase a property for me in a nice area in your country
3. Arrange for a Visa and Ticket for me to come over to your country for the sharing of the money.
4. Advise me on how to invest my own share of the money.
If you can handle the four requirems above, please respond to my message for further discussion.
