Ciao a tutti,

stamattina ho ricevuto una mail con oggetto "From" da una certa Lilian Sam. Si tratta dell'ennesima mail di scam, ma volevo inforrmarvi, perchè magari non sono l'unica ad averla ricevuta. Di seguito incollo il testo della mail, ho anche verificato in rete e ho visto che questo scam non è nuovo (vedi qui

Buon weekend a tutti!



I know this mail will not come to you as a suprise since we have not had a previous correspondance,please bear with me.i will realy like to have a good relationship with you, and i have a special reason why i decided to contact you.I decided to contact you because of the urgency of my situation here and after reading your profile. I believe that is going to mark the beginning of our never-ending relationship. Though currently I am seeking asylum in a refugees camp in place called Dakar the capital of Republic of Senegal in West Africa.

With deep sorrow and tears in my eyes I hope my story will not be upseting or embarrassment to you because I am constrained to contact you due to the maltreatment I received from my step mother after the death of my parents which has turned my life around for pains and sufferings. I ran out of my country because my step mother planned to kill me and take away all my late father's treasury and properties from me since the unexpected death of my beloved Father and mother.

I urge you to read this letter carefully to enable you understand my predicaments.

My name is Miss. lilian Sam , I am a girl of 26 years of age, the only daughter of late Mr.Sam Kanyemera, a former secretary for president Juvenal Habyarimana, from Hutu in Republic of Rwanda. who was killed by the current Rwandan President, Paul Kagame. when he orderd his plane to be shot down above Kigali airport on 6 April 1994. My late father was killed in cold blooded by an on known killer due to my father suport to stop the genocide after his boss president Juvenal Habyarimana, was killed.

My father of blessed memory before his death deposited the sum of (US$3, 800, 000.00) (Three Million Eight Hundred Thousand Dollars) in a Bank with my name as the next of kin. However, I shall forward to you all the necessay documents on the confirmation of your acceptance to assist me for the transfer and investment of the fund. As you will also help me in the invsetment, because I will like to complete my studies, as i was in my 1st year in the university, when the crisis started.

After the transaction you will arrange for my trip joining you over there for us to share this our love and feelings face to face.
Meanwhile I wanted to escape from Africa to any where in the world but my step mother hide away my international passport and other valuable travelling documents. Luckily she did not discover where I kept my father's File which contains important documents. So I decided to run to the refugee camp through help of a sailor where I am presently seeking asylum under the Private charity organization for the Refegee here in Dakar, Republic of Senegal. I wish to contact you personally for a long term relationship that may lead us to somewhere better if we work it out well because I believe that you will never betray me,

After the transaction we will invest the fund me and you, or if you don't intend staying with me in your country then It will be my pleasure to compensate you with 5% of the total money for your services and the balance shall be my investment capital. This is the reason why I decided to contact you. Please all communications should be through this email address only for confidential purposes.

As soon as I receive your positive response showing your interest I will put things into action immediately. In the light of the above, I shall appreciate an urgent message indicating your ability and willingness to handle this relationship and transaction sincerely.

Awaiting your urgent and positive response. Please do keep this only to your self please I begg you not to disclose this to anybody untill i join you over , once the fund has been transfered.
Thank you so much and God bless you.

Yours Sincerely,

Miss lilian sam

scam Oct 6, 2008

sì, l'ho ricevuta anch'io, ma l'ho inviata subito al servizio posta indesiderata
di MSN senza neppure leggerla, x cui non ho visto se era arrivata tramite proz o altro

in ogni caso ProZ non avrebbe nessuna responsabilità
xchè l'unico indirizzo in chiaro che ho lì sopra è quello di hotmail, che uso
appositamente (anche sul CV da scaricare) x evitare di spammare gli indirizzi di lavoro

x cui, fossi in te, farei altrettantoicon_wink.gif
e poi magari metti anche il segno di spunta a Email Preferences:
Allow only members who are logged in to send me messages via my profile
così non ti può inviare un messaggio qualunque pisquano che casca su ProZ

così come x l'indirizzo paypal se ce l'hai
