    URGENT BUSINESS PROPOSAL

    Engineer Richard Sullivan
    Shell Petroleum South-Africa.
    Reply via= enquiry. sullivanrichard1@gawab.com

    Attn: THE PRESIDENT/MANAGING DIRECTOR

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    I am Engineer Richard Sullivan, a Director of the Contracts Award and
    review

    Department with the Shell petroleum South-Africa. I am contacting you
    on
    the
    business of transferring the sum of US$20,500,000.00.(Twenty
    Million,five

    Hundred thousand United States Dollars only) into a safe foreign
    account
    and
    the need is very urgent. I got your contact from the South-Africa
    Chambers
    of
    Commerce and it is with business trust that made me to contact you on
    this

    matter. I write to solicit for the transfer of this money into your
    account.

    This Money was generated from an over Invoiced contract sum in my
    corporation.


    I am contacting you for your help and partnership for the following two
    reasons:
    (1) As a civil servant, I am not permitted to own foreign accounts due
    to
    civil
    service code of conduct.
    (2) My present financial resources as a civil servant will not be
    sufficient

    for me to handle the transfer alone successfully without financial
    assistance

    from a reliable foreign partner abroad like you. 20% of this sum would
    be
    for
    you as compensation for using your Bank account in transferring this
    money,
    5%
    would be used to re-imburse the expenses made by both parties during
    the

    processing of the transfer which includes,telephone bills, travelling
    expenses

    and fees. While 75% is for me.

    Please note that I will arrange to meet with you immediately after the
    successful conclusion of the transfer, the 75% share of mine will be
    used
    for
    investment overseas. Your assistance and co-operation is highly needed.
    I
    assure you that this transaction is 100% risk free. If you are
    interested
    I
    will require your banking information as mentioned below:

    1. Name to be used as beneficiary and beneficiarys address.
    2. Your private and confidential telephone/ fax number(s)and Cell
    phone.

    3. Your bank name and address, your bank Telephone and fax number(s).

    I hope to conclude this business within the next fourteen- (14) working
    days.
    Looking forward to your anticipated and urgent positive response via e-

    mail. "enquiry.sullivanrichard1@ozu.es"

    Best regards,

    Richard Sulivan.

    swole

    I along with my girl have gotten almost exactly the same type of email...

    Scam is real simple, you give them your bank account info and routing

    number and they clean it out... Sorry part is some people are so greedy

    that even though they know sumthing must be up, they still do it out of

    greed... I emailed the asshole back telling him what I'd do to him if he was

    standing in front of me and the dude emailed me backed upset that I would

    think he was trying to scam me outta my $$$ and honestly acted surprised...

    Assholes...

    Ive seen that same exact thing since the internet started going main stream 7 years ago.
    I wonder if anyone has fallen for it. If so, they are idiots and probably wont learn their lesson.

    There are other good scams like the EVO scam. A different website got A LOT of cash asking for peoples passwords. They even set up a similar website with the link.
    I think they got over 100k from people. Thats why I stay away from EVO and sites like that.

    This scam has been going on for years. There's someone on the Net (can't remember who) that responded to them for a joke and strung him along for months. He posted all of the letters, WAVs of the phone messages, everything. TOO FUNNY. I'll try to find it.

    LOL. I just saw a show today on COURT TV that had all the good scams people pull.
    Half of them were great ideas and could make me lots of money in a day.
    The contractor goes up to a house and bids to do a fix up job for real cheap casue he is just starting up and needs referals and pics for his business. He of course needs a down payment to lock in the "cheap" price. Something like 100 dollars for materials. After that, the guy never goes back.

    Or the fake tickets scheme. Make convincing tickets and stand outside the forum. Say you won the tickets or you work for the hotel and managed to pick some up for promtotions. Say you cant sell them for greater their value cause that would make you a scalper (that helps ease peoples mind that you arent a fraud) 50 bucks a ticket for a sold out show is a deal. Sell 50 of those so called tickets for cash, and you are gone with 2500 dollars. Actually you would have to sell them quick to get out of there.
