Scam Emails Archive : Advance Fee Fraud/419


From: "Mrs Linda Mahlungu" <>

This email with the subject "AWAITING YOUR TIMELY RESPONSE!!" was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Sun, 28 Oct 2007 06:24:40 -0700 and has been classified as a Advance Fee Fraud/419 Scam.

The sender was "Mrs Linda Mahlungu" <>, although it may have been spoofed.

I am an Auditor General in one of the major leading banks in South Africa. In my Bank, I discovered 
an abandoned large sum of money (US$14.7M) belonging to one of our late Foreign Customer. Since 
1996, nobody has operated this account,and the owner of this account,  MR.SEAN BURKE, an American 
National, also a businessman based in South Africa, was involved in an air crash in which he died 
on August 6, 1997. Please confirm from this web site to know more.

I am basically writing to you to seek your sincere Co-operation to present you as the only sole 
business partner beneficiary to this deceased name above since he specified no beneficiary,and no 
other person knows about this Account. The strategy/plan is to use my influence as Auditor of the 
bank to approve the funds to you. If you are keen/interested let me know so that I can explain 
further details and next procedure/modalities more precisely and the share ratio.

Sincere Regards.
Mrs.Linda Mahlungu.
