Subject: Hello,

From: john williams <>

This email with the subject "Hello," was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Fri, 03 Oct 2014 14:26:26 -0700 and has been classified as a Employment/Job Scam.

The sender was john williams <>, although it may have been spoofed.

Please allow me to intimate you with a business transaction that I believe will be of benefit to both of us. My name is john williams I am looking for a reliable person who can assist me and my colleagues in the claim and transfer of some amount of money.
This amount was realized from over-invoiced contract awarded by my Ministry
in 2006 to expatriate companies. The contract amount was deliberately overestimated to read more than the actual cost of the project thus leaving
a surplus. However, as civil servants we cannot claim this money without a foreign partner who will act as the contractor.

When you write back I can give you further details about this transaction. We are willing to give you 25% of the total amount after the transfer, the rest will be held and released to us when I come over to you.
With kind regards
