A Scam Email with the Subject "From Eng Denies Bulelwa" was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Thu, 13 May 2010 04:16:13 -0700 and has been classified as a Advance Fee Fraud/419 Scam. The sender was "Eng.Dennis Bulelwa" <email@example.com>, although it may have been spoofed.
I am making this contact based on my committee (Department of Mineral & Energy) needs an individual/company who can help us with the transfer of a contract entitlement. This amount (US$14.5M) represents the balance of the total contract value executed on behalf of my Department by a foreign contracting firm. This amount we have gotten approval to transfer abroad to any bank account.
This transaction is 100% safe and legal; we are only handicapped in the circumstances, as the South African Civil Service Code of Conduct does not allow us to operate offshore account hence your importance in the whole transaction. I have the authority of my colleagues involved to propose that should you be willing to assist us in this transaction your share as compensation will be US$4.35M (30%), while my colleagues and I receive US$8.75M (60%) and the balance of US$1.45M (10%) for taxation and miscellaneous expenses incurred.
We have reposed our confidence in you and hope that you will not disappoint us. Kindly send me your direct telephone numbers to enable me reach with details upon your acceptance to help us.
Once again, Please remember that time is of great essence
in this transaction.
I wait in anticipation of your fullest co-operation.
Eng Denies Bulelwa
