From: IDRIS AKEEM | Block Address | Add to Address Book Subject: business proposal I have a proposal to make that may be of interest to you. I am in possession of a large sum of money in cash,(US$30.0 M - Thirty Million US Dollars). The money was realised from sale of Gold Dust and Precious Stones during the Sierra Leone war between the period 1996 to 1998. The money is lodged at a security company in Abidjan since last year. I now want to move this money abroad and invest it in profitable ventures as it has no criminal origin, and the country is not aware of the existence of the money. WHAT I ASK YOU TO DO: 1.Firstly,to assist me to export this money to any stable country abroad. 2. To assist me invest the money in profitable ventures in your country or any other suitable country where you have good connections. 3. To help me re-locate my family to the suggested country. 4. To manage the money in a profitable manner. The procedure for relocation of the funds to your country is such that you will not run any risk. Basically, we will establish an Investment Account in a local bank in Abidjan affiliated to the African Development Bank. We will put the money in the local Account and funnel it through this Account to your overseas account. We will have proper banking trails to show the money as an investment fund. For your assistance you will get 30(ThirtyPercent) of the total amount US$9.0M(NineMillionUSDollars), and also 30% of net profit from the sale of125 kilo of gold dust accompanying the money.Upon your request, I will give you further details of>the plans and tell you more about my self but you must treat as highly confidential for my security. For your information, we did not disclose the real content of the boxes to the Security Company as we did not want them to know the content under the circumstances we found ourselves. Rather we deposited the boxes as containing family valuables and Gold Dust.I await your response by return E-mail while assuring you that the transaction is absolutely risk free.Upon your request, I will fax the Certificate of Deposit issued by the Security Company at the time of making the deposit. You should give me your dedicated fax number so I can fax it. Sincere regards, Mr Idris Akeem.

I got a email exactly like that last year, freaked me out to say the least since I work at a financial institution and actually have the means to get the money over here. I thought it was a "integrity test" by auditors or senior management. I never responded.

"but you must treat as highly confidential for my security. Mr Idris Akeem." Naughty you! By posting this "highly confidential" info, it is obvious Mr. Akeem's security has been breached! Of course, in phase 2 of Akeem's little plan, you provide your bank account number to allow "the funds transfer". That occurs shortly after he receives it, except your money is transferred to him, not the other way round. Just for fun, why not open another account with a $1 in it, and see what happens?

SatCong, here's what I'll do for you, another AR15.com member. Out of the goodness of my heart, and because we know we can safely put our blind trust in anyone who posts on this board, here's the plan. Now, living in CA, we have been blessed with numerous laws designed to protect the lucky few who live here, PLUS we have a wide range of ethnic groups, PLUS we tend to manage enterprises pretty darn good, too! You send me your account info so I can transfer funds to my "special" account, just to make sure it all works. See, now all you have to do is sit back and wait for your money to arrive from Idi...er, I mean Idris. I'll contact Idris (we, in this state, like to be on first-name basis with each other you know), and get things running from there. Now of course a worldly, Intelligent and enterprising young man such as yourself, loves the risk of high stakes gambling. Guess what? This is just like going to Vegas!! Don't worry, if you lose money, I as well as Idris will also have known you to lose money sharing the loss accordingly. So remember to send also your credit card number(s) with exp. date, billing address and PIN numbers too, just to confirm that what you've sent is an accurate assessment of the financial incentive portrayed before you...and so on.... P.S. I'll be willing to gamble that you are a man of some integrity who truly loves to do business directly with folks, so please send the number for your long distance calling card, as this will make it easier to talk face to face, as one might say!!! You truly are a lucky dog, you!!!!!! Let the others drown in their jealousy of your good fortune, while I am humbly enjoying the true gift of giving. WSmac

BTW, the Secret Service has a dedicated e-mail or fax number specifically for these Nigerian (and other) schemes. Believe it or not, a lot of people get ripped off on these.
