A Scam Email with the Subject "I need your quick response." was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Mon, 31 Jul 2006 06:10:18 -0700 and has been classified as a Advance Fee Fraud/419 Scam. The sender was "Ms. Florence Taylor" <firstname.lastname@example.org>, although it may have been spoofed.
Dear Friend, I got your contact after a diligent search of a foreign partner who will be of immediate assistance to us believing that this business proposal will be of mutual benefit to both of us and that you will not betray me. I am Ms. Florence Taylor, one of the fours wives to former President Charles Taylor of Liberia; the then warlord. My husband did really committed so many crimes that I feel very ashamed of but relieved to use this medium to solicit for assistance since I have been confined to house arrest. I have contacted you because I am really under great pressure especially now that my husband is appearing before the international court for various war crimes he committed that lead to the killings of more than 200000 people including children during his days in office. I have now decided to move out the sum of $14.5 million US dollars and 250kg of gold dust which my husband gave me for safe keeping before we traveled to Nigeria to seek asylum. I deposited this fund and the gold dust in one financial firm in Benin Republic through the help of a consultant. I have contacted this consultant recently and he promised to assist us to transfer this fund and the gold dust to you without any hassles. You will also help me to invest and manage this fund in any viable business venture while I am promising to give you 20% as your commission for your involvement and any expenses that you might incur in the process of this transaction. There is immense need for your involvement because my husband and I are widely known everywhere and since I am under house arrest, there is little or nothing that I can do to get this fund transferred out of this region by myself. Most of our assets and accounts have been frozen so I would like you to give this proposal the much needed attention because we have lost almost everything. I shall also give you the contact of the consultant who helped us to deposit the money in Benin Republic as soon as I receive your positive response so that you can work with him to conclude this deal. Please note that everything about this transaction must be strictly confidential. I wait for your urgent response. God bless you. Ms. Florence Taylor.
