Cred că aproape toată lumea ştie deja ce-ia aia o „scrisoare nigeriană”: un mail prin care eşti înştiinţat că un funcţionar bancar sau guvernamental dintr-o ţară africană ştie de un cont inactiv burduşit cu milioane de dolari şi că are nevoie de ajutorul tău ca să transfere banii în Europa. De obicei, aceste mailuri sunt scrise într-o engleză destul de aproximativă, coerenţa logică e şi ea deficitară, iar IP-ul de la care a fost trimis mesajul nu se prea „pupă” cu conţinutul scrisorii.
Azi dimineaţă însă am primit pe mail varianta upgradată a „scrisorii nigeriene”, made in Burkina Faso: un text scris într-o engleză cât de cât decentă, aparent logic (minus motivul pentru care fix eu sunt ales pentru un asemenea şmen 😆 ) şi provenit de la
|IP Location:||Burkina Faso Ouagadougou Onatel (office National Des Telecommunications Ptt)provider Local Registry|
Vă las să vă delectaţi cu noua creaţie a escrocilor africani. Sincer, mă bate gândul să intru în joc şi să văd cât de decepţionaţi o să fie când o să le cer bani pentru o deplasare la Ouagadougou, înainte să apuce ei să-mi ceară ceva bani pentru „cheltuielile inerente” 😆 :
„Greeting From Mr. Vicent Cliff,
I have picked-up the trust and courage to write you this letter with divine confidence that you are a reliable and honest person who will be capable for this important business transaction believing also that you will not let me down either now or in the future.
My name is Vicent Cliff a senior Auditing Officer with the AFRICAN DEVELOPMENT BANK in Burkina-Faso West Africa. There is an account opened in this bank in 1980 and since 1996 nobody has operated on this account again. I discovered that if I do not remit this money out urgently it would be forfeited to the government as dormant account.The owner of this account is Mr. Duckson Fritz, a foreigner, he was an ECOWAS CONTRACTOR who nationalised here in my country, a geologist by profession, and he died since 1996 in a plane crash. No other person knows about this account or anything concerning it, the account has no other beneficiary and my investigation proved to me as well that this company does not know anything about this account and the amount involved is (US$22.5million) Twenty Two Million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars.
I want to transfer this sum of Twenty Two Million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollarss into a safe foreign account abroad. I am contacting you based on the fact that you are a foreigner because this money can only be approved for payment to a foreigner. I know that this proposal will come to you as a surprise as we don’t know ourselves before. However I got your contact from a trade consultant in South Africa, though I did not disclose the purpose of my seeking for a foreign business partner to him.
Although we will still have to meet to sign some agreement before the final transfer of the fund into any of your designated bank account. I have involved a very senior official in the operational department, and we have agreed that after the transfer of the money into your account, you shall be entitled to 30% of the total sum, my colleagues and I will have 60%
while 10% will be used to reimburse any expenses incurred.
All necessary precautions have been taken to ensure a risk free situation on the side of both parties. Please note that this deal can only take place on the following conditions;
1. Absolute confidentiality and sincerity will be required and guaranteed, considering our positions in the bank.
2. Assurance that our own share will be released to us in good faith when this money finally gets into your account and send me your telephone and fax numbers. All things being equal, this transaction will be within 10 working days as soon as we hear from you.
Please treat with utmost confidentiality. Contact me as quickly as possible through my above e-mail or my alternative
(e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org) telephone and fax numbers will be needed for easy communication.
Expecting your urgent response,
MR. VICENT CLIFF.”
Din păcate, inventivitatea i-a trădat pe negrotei când a venit vorba de alegerea numelui: Duckson Fritz este în capul listei pe http://www.crimes-of-persuasion.com/Nigerian/dead_foreigners.htm 😆
