A Scam Email with the Subject "I assumed you are in good health with your family" was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Thu, 16 Dec 2010 13:59:51 -0800 and has been classified as a Generic Scam. The sender was Mr Ahmed Adams <firstname.lastname@example.org>, although it may have been spoofed.
I am Mr Ahmed Adams, the Director incharge of Auditing and accounting department Bank of Africa. Am contacting you for an urgent beneficial transaction, I have the opportunity of transferring Fifteen Million United States Dollars( $15m) from an
account that belong to one of our late customer from the Lebanoon who died long ago in Plan crash.I want to inquire from you if you can handle this transaction for mutual benefits/life opportunity for you and me.
The Fund is currently in a suspense account awaiting claim, the bank made a public notice that they are ready to release this fund to any of his relatives abroad. THEREFORE, by virtue of its nature as being utterly CONFIDENTIAL, top secret should be maintained please!,because i am still in the active service i do not need any form of implication especially now i am in the verge of my retirement to endanger my carear at last!.Since we got the information about his death, we have been expecting his next of kin to come over and claim his money because we cannot release it unless some body applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines and laws.
In that regard, i decided to seek your consent for this prospective opportunity. Have it at the back of your mind, that the transaction does not involve any RISK, and does not need much engagement from you, since i am familiar with this kind of transaction being an insider.Necessary modalities will be worked out to enable us carry out the fund claim under a legitimate arrangement. I have resolved to offer you 40% of the total fund if only you will understand and follow up my instruction because it will only required a foriegn Account to transfer the fund, 10% for any expenses that may be incurred during the process of executing this transaction and 50% percent for me.
I will give you more details about the transaction when I receive your affirmative response, I am waiting to hear from you URGENTLY.
