A Scam Email with the Subject "Hello," was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Mon, 22 Aug 2011 10:27:12 -0700 and has been classified as a Generic Scam. The sender was Albert Gaston <firstname.lastname@example.org>, although it may have been spoofed.
I am Mr.Albert Gaston I work as a Manager with one of the international bank here in Burkina Faso. Although the world is very small place and hard place to meet people because you don't know who to trust or believe, but as I have developed my trust in you after my praying, i made up my mind to confide this confidential business suggestion with you.
Be rest assure that everything will be handled confidentially because, this is a great opportunity which we cannot afford to miss as it will make our family profit allot.
It has been 7 years ago, that most of the greedy African Politicians used our bank to launder money overseas through the help of their Political advisers,most of the funds which they transferred out of Africa was gold and oil money that was supposed to used to develop the continent.
The Political advisers always inflated the amounts before transfer to foreign accounts so I also used the opportunity to divert part of the funds hence I am aware that there is no official trace of how much was transferred as all the accounts used for such transfers were being closed after the transacfer.
As am sending this message to you, I was able to divert Ten Million five Hundred is the deposited thousand United State Dollars ($10.5M) to an escrow account that belonging to unknown person in bank.
I want you to act as the depositor by applying in the bank for the fund because the bank are curious to know who is the depositor of the fund, in this transfer their will be no problem base that the fund is deposited in the escrow account, as soon as the fund has been transferred into your account we shall share the fund at the ratio of 60% for me while 40 % bis for you.
If you are interested in this transaction, do not hesitate to reply me back, while you are not interested delete my message from your box.
Hoping to hear from you soon.
