I just thought this one too funny to not post, so decided to create this discussion to share anything we receive:


INTERNATIONAL MONETARY FUND
FINANCIAL MONITORY DEPARTMENT
HEAD QUARTERS:
700 19TH STREET, N.W.
WASHINGTON, DC. 20431.
 
Attention: Sole Beneficiary.

We the International Monetary Fund (IMF) Washington, DC in conjunction with some other relevant Investigation Agencies here in United State of America like Federal bureau of investigation (FBI),Internal Revenue Service (IRS), Office of the Foreign Asset Control, Homeland Security and Treasury Department have recently been informed through our Global intelligence monitoring network that you presently have a transaction going on with the Central Bank of Nigeria regards to your over-due contract payment valued US$30,000,000.00 (Thirty Million United States Dollars) Which was fully endorsed in your favor accordingly.

I wish to inform you that there is a directive from the IMF, United Nation Organization and the European Authorities to pay all outstanding debts owed to beneficiaries by African Countries. This was resolved in a meeting held between European Union Authorities and Officials of United States Government in Brussels last week, as a condition from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to support European Union (EU) and United States of America in the fight against corruption and money laundering.

This is to avoid any mistake while transferring this your overdue contract payment to you and now your new Payment Reference No. - 545000358, Allocation No. - 604728, Password No.- 9955104, Pin Code No - 44779 and your Certificate of Merit Payment No. – 202; Release Code No. – 0977; Immediate Telex Confirmation No. – 1144778401; Secret Code No. – XTV12349 and having received these vital payment numbers therefore, you are qualified to register for your your telex and cable access pin codes now to receive and confirm your payment with the Federal Government of Nigeria immediately into your nominated bank account within 24 banking hours.

Federal Government of Nigeria further informed us that we should warn our dear citizens who must have been informed of the contract payment which was awarded to them from the Central Bank of Nigeria, to be very careful prior to these irregularities so that they don't fall victim to this ugly circumstance anymore.

And  in case you are already dealing with anybody or office claiming to be from the Central Bank of Nigeria, you are advised to STOP further contact with them in your best interest and then contact immediately the real office of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) only with the below information accordingly:

NAME: MR. LAMIDO SANUSI AMINU (CBN GOVERNOR) REV. JAMES SMITH (FINANCIAL SECRETARY) OFFICE ADDRESS: CENTRAL BANK OF NIGERIA (CBN) CENTRAL BUSINESS DISTRICT, CAD ASTRAL ZONE, FEDERAL CAPITAL TERRITORY.
NIGERIA.
EMAIL: cbninbox@blumail.org

FUND TRANSFER PAYMENT STATUS Note that as instructed by the International Financial Bodies Due to ongoing fraudulent/scam activities, IMF and appropriate authorities warned that beneficiary is NOT liable to pay Cost Of Transfer (COT), VAT and Documentation Fee/Charges during the process of transfer and any officer that demands a transfer charges from you is a criminal and you have every right to report the person to us because the only fee to be paid by you is US$490 and must be paid to the Regional office of the International Monetary Fund in Nigeria for IMF CLEARANCE CERTIFICATE which will prevent your receiving Bank for query on the source of funds, These Certificate proves that the funds was not for ANTI-TERRORISM, MONEY LAUNDRY AND DRUG TRAFFICKING.

All modalities has already been worked out even before you were contacted and note that we will be monitoring all your dealings with them as you proceed so you don't have anything to worry about. All we require from you henceforth is an update and you are advised not to disclose the said inheritance contract funds with anyone until your funds has been fully released to you, Without wasting much time we advice you to contact them immediately with the above email address so as to enable them attend to your case accordingly without any further delay as time is already running out.

Thank you very much for your anticipated co-operation in advance as we earnestly await your urgent response to this matter.

Yours Sincerely in Service,
 
MR.DOMINIQUE STRAUSS-KAHN
DEPARTMENT DIRECTOR.
INTERNATIONAL MONETARY FUND 


I've highlighted some funny parts. Also remember the old discussion where TonyHughes was acting as a scam baiter...

Rofl - that's great!!

Wonder if you could string them along a bit like Tony did with his scambaiting a few years back. You should send them an email saying you're very interested in getting this money, and they can take the required US$490 out of the US30,000,000.00...

I HAVE A BUSINESS PROPOSAL FOR YOU.

Dear Good Friend,

I am Mr Asita Hussain, The Chief Auditor/Information Manager, In-Charge of Foreign Unit of our bank and i have had the intent to contact you over this financial transaction/transfer worth the sum of Twenty Nine Million Two Hundred Thousand U.S Dollars (US$29.2M)for our progress and richness.This is an abandoned sum that belongs to our late foreign customer (an International Billionaire French Businessman) who died in plane crash disaster since three years ago along with his wife.

I was opportuned to see the deceased deposit file bearing this huge amount of money when i was inspecting the dated and current customers files in other to sign and submit to the entire bank management for an official validation / re-documentation against the statement approval to the account holders for the year. In a swift investigation carried out by me, i found out that non of the deceased relative is aware of the abandoned fund except his late wife.

As a result of that, it is an extremely confidential matter between me and you.

Hence you are a foreigner to our country, you are authorized by our Banking law to apply and claim the fund into your account as the NEXT-OF-KIN to the deceased. For assisting me to get the fund transferred into your bank account, the ratio of 40% of the total sum is for your share whereas 60% is for me as business pioneer.

Please i need your urgent response on assurance of trust that you will not deny my right of the share once the fund gets into your account because i am a poor civil servant who depend on little monthly salary. That you are the one who will help me to get visa to your country immediately i resign from my work on the instant of the transfer into your account.

If you are realy sure of your integerity, trustworthy, and confidentiality, reply urgently and to prove that, include your particulars as follows.

Your Full Names...................
Occupation...........................
Age .....................................
Marrital Status.......................
Personal Phone No...............
Country....................

Yours in sincerity,

Mr Asita Hussain

I got one today, and immediately thought of this thread...

From:  Ekkehard Schubert <[removed]@ita.br>
Subject: Parnership.

Good day,                                                                                                        
                                                                                                                 
I am Mr. C.Y. Ling, alternate CEO of the operations of CITIC Bank                                                
International, China. I have a proposal for you in the tune of One Hundred                                       
& Five Million EUR, after successful transfer, we shall share in the ratio                                       
of forty for you and sixty for me. Please reply for specifics.                                                   
                                                                                                                 
Yours,                                                                                                           
Mr. C.Y. Ling.


My question is, what about the other 5 million EUR? Can I sneak it under the table?  Also, if he runs a bank, why can't he transfer it himself, and the clincher... What is an "alternate CEO"?
