Watch out for a dodgy email going around

Don't get sucked in by the con artists!


Dear American:

I need to ask you to support an urgent secret business relationship with a transfer of funds of great magnitude. I am Ministry of the Treasury of the Republic of America.


My country has had crisis that has caused the need for large transfer of funds of 800 billion dollars US. If you would assist me in this transfer, it would be most profitable to you.


I am working with Mr. Phil Gram, lobbyist for UBS, who will be my replacement as Ministry of the Treasury in January. As a Senator, you may know him as the leader of the American banking deregulation movement in the 1990s. This transactin is 100% safe.


This is a matter of great urgency. We need a blank check. We need the funds as quickly as possible. We cannot directly transfer these funds in the names of our close friends because we are constantly under surveillance.


My family lawyer advised me that I should look for a reliable and trustworthy person who will act as a next of kin so the funds can be transferred.


Please reply with all of your bank account, IRA and college fund account numbers and those of your children and grandchildren to wallstreetbailout@treasury.gov so that we may transfer your commission for this transaction.

After I receive that information, I will respond with detailed information about safeguards that will be used to protect the funds.

Yours Faithfully Minister of Treasury Paulson

Especially not when half a dozen similar messages with different background stories show up in my inbox every day.

Re: Receiving dodgy emails

I got this one this morning

"ME AND MY HUSBAND HAVE COMPENSATED YOU WITH A 300,000.00 gbp£ BANK CHEQUE.

Hello compliments, how are you and your family, I hope all is fine. Of course you can remember who I am; my name is Mrs. Veronica Rodriguez, formally Miss Veronica Adams.
I am now married to an Indian-American business man who helped me transferred my money into his account in London and New york City and we live happily together here in New york. With his connection he helped me transferred all my money into his account, although the government tax and bank tax was very heavy on us but we paid all the taxes and still have a lot much which we are now investing here in USA. My husband on the other hand is also very wealthy before he helped me. We are now happily married and we travel a lot within the states due to the investment that my husband and I are establishing here in USA and including the stuck market business that my husband is also investing on and my education.
I told my husband about you and my husband said that we must compensate you reasonably so that you will forget about me and never contact me any more, recently we have already dispatched through registered speed post a Bank Cheque of 300,000£ to you through our African Lawyer (Barrister David Cole) to give the Bank Cheque to you accordingly without mistake and to stand a witness of our 300,000.00£ compensation to you. Go to senegal to collect the bank cheque from Barrister David Cole. His telephone number is +221775200992 and his email: attorneydavidcole@yahoo.se
I am sorry this is my last communication with you. please do not reply back to me because my husband instructed me to abandoned this email box after sending you this letter. Thank you and Bye for ever.
Mrs. Veronica Rodriguez
