I thought you might enjoy reading an email scam I received.
This person has decided that purchasing a coop might be a fun way to escape the “war on terrorism” in Ghana.
Thank you for your prompt response. It seem you are a sincere person. I want to inform you that I will buy your House at your last given price.
But I have a business proposal for you. (Please do read below)
I am a Lt.Colonel with the United Nations Peace-keeping mission in Cote D’ivoire West africa, on war against terrorism.
Our mission is to help beef up terrorist targeted states, mostly the United States,the European Union and the African Union etc,on the war against terrorism.
I will need a house in the United States for myself and that is why I contacted you.
On the other hand I want to inform you that I have in my possession the sum of 16.2 million USD. Which I got from crude oil deal while i was on a United Nations Peace-keeping mission in Iraq and I deposited this money with a Red Cross agent informing him that we are making contact for the real owner of the money. It is under my power to approve whoever comes forth for this money.
I want to invest the money in your country as soon as I am on annual leave and i will come to your country with my entire family for holidays and for a good business, anyway you will advice me on that since I am not a businessperson.
I cannot move this money to my country(Ghana) because I will be in Europe for about 3years,so I need someone I could trust.
If you accept, I will transfer the money to Europe where you will be the beneficiary because I am a uniformed person and I cannot be parading such an amount so I need to present someone as the beneficiary.
I am a Ghanaian and an intelligence officer for that so I have a 100% authentic means of transferring the money through diplomatic courier service .I just need your acceptance and all is done.
Please if you are interested in this transaction I will give to you the complete details you need for us to carry out this transaction successfully. I decided to find someone that is real and not imaginary and that is why I went to a secured house site where I can be sure that the person is real. I believe I can trust you.
Where we are now we can only communicate through our military communication facilities, which is secured so nobody can monitor our emails, then I can explain in details to you. I will only reach you through email, because our calls might be monitored,I just have to be sure whom I am dealing with.
If you are interested please send me your personal mobile number so I can call you for further enquiries when I am out of our military network.
I am writing from a fresh email account so if you are not interested do not reply to this email and please delete this message, if no response after 3days I will then search for someone else.
I wait for your contact details so we can go on. In less than 5days the money should have been noted on your account and I will come over for my money. I will give to you 30% of the sum and 70% is for me. I hope I am been fair on this deal.
Once again, I want to assure you that this transaction is 100% risk and you have absolutely nothing to fear about or loose as i have made all the necessary arrangements for the success of this deal.
I await your positive response soonest.
