If your not going to go for it, I assume your cool about it if I do?

Greetings to you

My name is H K. I am the Store manager with a Security Firm
here in Malaysia . I need your urgent assistance to transfer funds out
of this firm. I cannot directly achieve this without the help of a
foreigner and that is why I am contacting you .

All documents to enable the smooth release of this fund to you will be
carefully worked out and there will be practically no risk involved,
this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect
you from any breach of law as a change of fund ownership certificate
in your name will be legally initiated.

A perfect arrangement is in place for the release of the fund to you
without hitches through crypto currency which you may call bitcoin if
you want. This measure was thought of due to the difficulties in
transferring huge funds from one country to another, because of global
fight on illicit movement of funds to sponsor

Transferring the fund to you through bitcoin is a perfect way . You
will have to create a BLOCK CHAIN ACCOUNT on your phone, but you will
first download the blockchain application on your phone, register an
account and send the QR code to the financial institution, the fund
will immediately be transferred into your blockchain account within 24
hours as soon as you send your blockchain QR code to the the
department of any of our paying banks responsible for crypto currency

If you are ready, I will have to send you the director of the
cryptocurrency department WhatsApp number, you will have to chat him
up on WhatsApp for more details and guidelines. I will secure a legal
certificate of fund ownership change through our firm’s legal team
which you will forward .

If you accept to work with me, I want you to state how you wish us to
share the funds in percentage, so that both parties will be satisfied.
Should you have worries or further questions please ask but If you are
not interested or have found this email offensive , please do not

Yours sincerely.
Mr. H K

To which I replied


Thanks for your great offer! You have arrived as an angel at right time. I’m in education loan debt of about 90k USD (sibling’s debt included). The money will be of great help to me.

I don’t know what is “BLOCK CHAIN ACCOUNT”. I have a account at the district bank, but its empty as of now. Also I cannot use WhatsApp as my Nokia doesn’t support it. Can we talk via SMS?

Another one (to which I didn’t reply)


I know that this mail will come to you as a surprise, but never mind i
have decided to make this contact with you as I believe that you can
be of great assistance to me. I need your assistance in transferring
the sum of $11.3million to your private account Where this money can
be shared between us.

The money has been here in our Bank lying dormant for years now
without anybody coming for the claim. I want to release the money to
you as the relative to our deceased customer (the account owner) who
died in a plane crash with his family since October 2005.

By indicating your interest I will send you the full details on how
the business will be executed.

Best Regards,
Mr. M D

One thing I notice, they both had a fixed line width and the text wasn’t wrapped like it normally does in case you don’t enter manual line breaks.

Names shortened to initials. They’re certainly fake names, but anyways :laughing:

Another opportunity here:

Dear Sir/Ma. My name is Mr. Geoffrey Mudenzi" a senior government official in department of Public Works & Infrastructure here in South Africa, I am the Chief of Staff in charge for contract awards / execution. also the supervisor of all contracts in Department Of Public Works & Infrastructure. In 2019 before the (Pandemic), I personally monitored and supervised the awarded contracts for supplies of building materials and constructions of ultra modern shopping malls, low cost housing units, airports maintenance and Stadiums to Improve the standard of living in this country, In the Eastern Cape, Western Cape, Natal and Gauteng provinces here in South Africa. My colleague and I serving in the board deliberately inflated and over invoiced the contract sum, leaving an excess of US$30, 000,000.00 (Thirty Million United States Dollars Only). At the completion of the contracts, the real contract sum was paid to the original contractors, leaving the excess, which we reported to the Government that it belonged to the sub-contractor that handled part of the original contract. But the company we submitted as the beneficiary was non-existing foreign company, which was a purported attempt by us to divert the money for our private use. I do not intend to mince words with you, I have to tell you the truth; this is a deal but completely risk-free and genuine because the contract has been perfectly and genuinely executed and completed. It depends on whether you are interested or not. Right now this amount is due for payment and is floating in the treasury not attached to anyone/company. We are only two people who know the origin of this fund. But we cannot claim it by ourselves because we are civil servants therefore we are looking for a trustworthy foreign company / individual whose name can be used to claim this money for our mutual benefit. This is strictly a business deal, but it’s completely risk-free and secure because we will use our official positions to source all the necessary approvals, official documents and certificates that will back up the fund to reflect that you/your company genuinely executed and completed the contract. All necessary arrangements have been put in place in all the relevant departments for immediate approval of this payment. For your co-operation, we have agreed to offer you 2.5% of the entire amount on conclusion of the transaction while 75% will be for us. Please if you are interested in this proposal, I want you to respond immediately through my personal e-mail account stated below for further information and directives. This transaction is expected to be completed within 5 or 8 work days and is highly confidential and discreet. Thank you for your co-operation. Your urgent reply is awaited through my private email accounts below. Best Regards, Mr. Geoffrey Mudenzi. Private Email: geomud2021@gmail.com (Department Of Public Works)
