Here's the latest scam email to come my way, and it was entitled "FROM MR BANGU MALI /URGENT NEEDED AND CONFIDENTIAL." This was received twice in the past two days, and I love how it's basically the same email I've been receiving for the past few months from many diverse sources. And I'm sorry, but "Bangu Mali" sounds like a delicious soft drink to be had in any of the plethora of Indian restaurants found on Manhattan's Lower East Side:
FROM MR. BANGU MALI THE MANAGER FOREIGN REMITTANCE DEPARTMENT, AFRICA DEVELOPMENT BANK (ADB) BURKINA FASO .
I am MR.BANGU MALI , the manager in charge of auditing and accounting section of Africa Development Bank.(ADB) Ouagadougou Burkina-Faso West Africa ,with due respect and regard. I have decided to contact you on a business transaction that will be very beneficial to both of us at the end of the transaction.
During our investigation and auditing in this bank, my department came across a very huge sum of money belonging to a
deceased person Mr.Andreas Schranner who died with his wife and their only daughter on 31 July 2000 in a plane crash and the fund has been dormant in his account with this Bank without any claim of the fund in our custody either from his family or relation before our discovery to this development.
The said amount was U.S $10.150M ((Ten million one hundred and fifty thousand US dollars)).
As it may interest you to know, I got your impressive information through international search in Burkina-Faso here in Ouagadougou Burkina-Faso. Meanwhile all the whole arrangement to put claim over this fund as the bonafide next of kin to the deceased, get the required approval and transfer this money to a foreign account has been put in place and directives and the needed information will be relayed to you as soon as you indicate your interest and willingness to assist me and also
benefit your self to this great business opportunity.
In fact I could have done this deal alone but because of my position in this country as a civil servant (A Banker), we are not allowed to operate a foreign account and would eventually raise an eye brow on my side during the time of transfer because I work in this bank. This is the actual reason why it will require a second party or fellow who will forward claims as the next of kin with affidavit of trust of oath to the Bank and also present a foreign account where he will need the money to be re-transferred into on his request as it may be after due verification and clarification by the correspondent branch of the bank where the whole money will be remitted from to your own designation bank account.
I will not fail to inform you that this transaction is 100% risk free. On smooth conclusion of this transaction, you will be
entitled to 35% of the total sum as gratification, while 55% will be for me as the founder of the deal, while 10% will be for expenses.
Please, you have been advised to keep "top secret" as I am still in service and intend to retire from service after we conclude this deal with you.
I will be monitoring the whole situation here in this bank until you confirm the money in your account and ask me to come down to your country for subsequent sharing of the fund according to percentages previously indicated and further investment, either in your country or any country you advice us to invest in.
All other necessary information will be sent to you when I hear from you. Trusting to hear from you. you can contact me
through this number(00226 78 80 16 64). And i will advice you to reply back on my private email address:( email@example.com )
