|I have a proposal for you, this however is not mandatory nor will I in any manner compel you to honor against your will.|
I am Ali Sghaier a former executive director with Arab Tunisian Bank here in Tunis; I retired 1 year 7 months ago after putting in 28 years of meticulous service. During my days with Arab Tunisian Bank, I was the personal account officer and one of the financial advisers to Zine Al-Abidine Ben Ali the past Tunisian President in self exile at Saudi Arabia. During his trying period, he instructed me to move all his investment in my care which consists of $88M and 367KG of gold out of the Gulf States for safe keeping; and that I successfully did by moving $52M to Italy, $36M to Dubai UAE and the 367KG of gold to London United Kingdom as an anonymous deposits, so that the funds will in no way be traced to him. He has instructed me to find an investor who would stand as the anonymous depositor of the fund and gold; and claim it for further investment.
Consequent upon the above, my proposal is that I would like you as a foreigner to stand in as the anonymous depositor of this fund and gold that I have successfully moved to Europe and provide an account overseas where this said fund will be transferred into. It is a careful network and my voluntary retirement from the Arab Tunisian Bank is to ensure a hitch-free operation as all modalities for you to stand as beneficiary and owner of the deposits has been perfected by me. Mr. Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali will be offering you 20% of the total investment if you can be the investor and claim this deposits in U.K and Belgium as the anonymous depositor.
Now my questions are:-
1. Can you handle this transaction?
2. Can I give you this trust?
Consider this and get back to me as soon as possible, so that I can give you more details regarding this transaction. Finally, it is my humble request that the information as contained herein be accorded the necessary attention, as well as the secrecy it deserves.
I Expect your urgent response if you can handle this project through my private email address (email@example.com)
This email is infected with Scam$fund
DO NOT OPEN the attachment . Do not response to the email. This email is not send by "Ali Sghaier" <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
This email is a scam, not a worm or virus. The email do not have any infected attachments.
The offer may sound tempting and looks worth taking a risk for the big reward. DO NOT fall into this scam.
If you reply, you will probably be asked to pay some US$100 to start off the fund transfer process. The excuse for requiring your payment is that the scammer themselves cannot be involved in any payment to avoid being caught linking the transfer. Of course, if you pay up the first time, you will be asked for further payments for other issues.
Once you become suspicious of them and ask many questions about the payment, they will stop responding the email and start looking for other victims.
