A Scam Email with the Subject "STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL / URGENT ASSISTANCE NEEDED." was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Sun, 22 May 2011 03:13:46 -0700 and has been classified as a Advance Fee Fraud/419 Scam. The sender was Mr Tarek Omar <email@example.com>, although it may have been spoofed.
I know that this mail will come to you as a surprise as we have never met before, but need not to worry as I am using the only secured and confidential medium available to seek for your foreign assistance in a business. I am contacting you independently of my investigation and no one is informed of this communication.
I need your urgent assistance in transferring the sum of ($11.3million united state dollar.) immediately to your private account. The money has been here in our Bank lying dormant for nine good years now without anybody coming for the claim of it. I want to release the money to you as the nearest person to our deceased customer (the account owner) who died a long with his supposed NEXT OF KIN since August 1997.
The Banking ethics here does not allow such money to stay more than 15 years, because the money will be recalled to the Bank treasury as unclaimed fund. Upon receipt of your reply indicating your interest in this transaction, I will send you full details on how the business will be executed.
Please keep this proposal as a top secret and delete if you are not interested.
Mr Tarek Omar.
Bank Of Africa, Burkina Faso-West Africa.
