Got this yesterday and I’m considering it carefully, even though I suspect it just might be a fake. But given the bozoic nature of the current leadership, well….you tell me…..
Dear Sir or Madame:
I need to ask you to support an urgent secret business relationship with a transfer of funds of great magnitude. I am Minister of the Treasury of the Republic of America . My country has had a crisis that has caused the need for a large transfer of funds of 700 billion dollars.
If you would assist me in this transfer, it would be most profitable to you.
I am working with Mr.Phil Gramm, lobbyist for UBS, who will be my replacement as Minister of the Treasury in January. As a senator, you may know him as the leader of the American banking deregulation movement in the 1990s.
This transaction is 100% safe. This is a matter of great urgency. We need a blank check. We need the funds as quickly as possible. We cannot directly transfer these funds in the names of our close friends because we are constantly under surveillance. My family lawyer advised me that I should look for a reliable and trustworthy person who will act as a next of kin so the funds can be transferred.
Please reply with all of your bank account, IRA and college fund accounts as well as those of your children and grandchildren to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we may transfer your commission for this transaction. After I receive that information, I will respond with detailed information about safeguards that will be used to protect the funds.
Minister of Treasury Paulson
At least it’s written in passable English. Gotta be real, right?
