Dear good friend,

My friends don’t send me spam.

I’m happy to inform you about my success in getting those funds transferred under the cooperation of a new partner from Luxemburg. Presently I’m in Luxemburg for investment projects with my own share of the total sum. Meanwhile, I didn’t forget your past efforts and attempts to assist me in transferring those funds despite that it failed us some how.

You didn’t forget something that never happened, amazing.

Now contact my secretary, her name is MISS MARY . PETER (Secretary) ( ) ask her to send you the international cashier’s Bank Draft I raised in your name worth $520,000.00USD as a compensation for all the past efforts and attempts to assist me in this matter. I appreciated your efforts at that time very much, so feel free and get in touched with my secretary MISS MARY and instruct Her where to send the Draft to. Please, contact NOW, my confidential secretary,

NOW? <sarcasm>I better not delay and contact her NOW.</sarcasm>

MISS MARY . PETER (Secretary)
E-mail : ( )
You are to forward to her, the following:
She, will advise you further about the shipment of the ICBD to your Residence Address or Office Address you may provide. Feel free to reach via this very mail address. Most importantly, the ICBD has only validity period of 12 banking days.

Please do let me know immediately you receive it so that we can share the joy after all the sufferness at that time.

What is it with scammers and the word, sufferness?

In the moment, I am very busy here because of the investment projects which me and the new partner are having at hand, finally, remember that I had forwarded instruction to the secretary on your behalf, so feel free to get in touch with her and she will send the Draft to you without any delay.
With best regards,

“Dr.” Bello, you say you’re in Luxembourg, but you sent this email from Indonesia. WTF?

  1. I get these kinds of email all the time and although I haven’t noticed the word ‘sufferness’ yet, I sure have seen some interesting spelling!

    Isn’t it curious how all these professionals use throwaway yahoo email accounts too?
