    Donald Anderson, African Banker Scam

    Ok, I googled this and didn't find anything, but there's no way this is not a scam. I just recieved this email today from a Mr. Donald Anderson ([email protected]):

    -------------

    Attention

    We want to transfer to overseas [$66,000.000.00
    USD][Sixty Six million United States] Dollars from a
    Bank in Africa,I want to ask you to quietly look for a
    reliable and honest person who will be capable and fit
    to provide either an existing bank account or to set
    up a new Bank a/c immediately to receive this
    money, even an empty a/c can serve to receive this
    money, as long as you will remain honest to me till
    the
    end, for this important business,trusting in you and
    believing in God that you will never let me down
    either now or in future.

    I am Mr. Donald Anderson,the Auditor General of a bank in
    Africa, during the course of our auditing I discovered
    a floating fund in an account opened in the bank in
    1990 and since 1993 nobody has operated on this
    account again,after going through some old files in
    the records I discovered that the owner of the account
    died without a [heir] hence the money is floating
    and if I do not remit this money out urgently it will
    be forfeited for nothing,the owner of this account is
    Mr. Phillip Moore ,a foreigner,and a sailor, he died
    in
    1993 and no other person knows about this account or
    any thing concerning it,the account has no other
    beneficiary and my investigation proved to me as well
    that Phillip Moore until his death was the manager
    Phillip coy.(pty). SA.
    We will start the first transfer with Twenty Six
    million [$26,000.000] upon successful transaction
    without any disappoint from your side, we shall
    re-apply for the payment of the remaining amount to
    your account,

    The amount involved is (USD 66M) Sixty Six million
    United States Dollars,only I want to first transfer
    $26,000.000 [Twenty Six million United States Dollar
    from this money into a safe foreigner's account abroad
    before the rest, but I don't know any foreigner,I am
    only contacting you as a foreigner because this money
    can not be approved to a local person here,without
    valid international foreign passport, but can only be
    approved to any foreigner with valid international
    passport or drivers license and foreign a/c because
    the money is in us dollars and the former owner of the
    a/c Mr. Phillip Moore is a foreigner too and the
    money can only be approved into a foreign a/c.
    However, we will sign a binding agreement to bind us
    together, I got your contact address from the Girl who
    operates computer,I am revealing this to you with
    believe in God that you will never let me down in this
    business,you are the first and the only person that I
    am contacting for this business, so please reply
    urgently so that I will inform you the next step to
    take urgently. Send also your private telephone and
    fax
    number including the full details of the account to be
    used for the deposit.
    I want us to meet face to face to build confidence and
    to sign a binding agreement that will bind us
    together before transferring the money to any account
    of your choice where the fund will be safe.Before we
    fly to your country for with drawal,sharing and
    investments.

    I need your full co-operation to make this work fine.
    because the management is ready to approve this
    payment to any foreigner who has correct information
    of this account, which I will give to you, upon your
    positive response and once I am convinced that you
    are capable and will meet up with instruction of a
    key bank official who is deeply involved with me in
    this business.

    I need your strong assurance that you will never,never
    let me down. With my influence and the position of the
    bank official we can transfer this money to any
    foreigner's reliable account which you can provide
    with assurance that this money will be intact pending
    our arrival in your country for sharing. The bank
    official will destroy all documents of transaction
    immediately we receive this money leaving no trace to
    any place and to build confidence you can come
    immediately to discuss with me face to face after
    which I will make this remittance in your presence and
    three of us will fly to your country at least two days
    ahead of the money going into the account.
    I will apply for annual leave to get visa immediately
    I hear from you that you are ready to act and receive
    this fund in your account. I will use my position and
    influence to obtain all legal approvals for onward
    transfer of this money to your account with
    appropriate clearance from the relevant ministries
    and foreign exchange departments.

    At the conclusion of this business,you will be given
    35% of the total amount,60% will be for me,while 5%
    will be for expenses both parties might have incurred
    during the process of transferring.

    Re: Donald Anderson, African Banker Scam

    I mean, come on. Bad grammer, terrible punctuation...you'd think an auditor general of a bank could manage proper buisness letter format or at least proper grammer. And who asks a total stranger to "quietly look for" someone to recieve a massive sum of money? This is a new one to me, but has anyone else recieved this?
