I have just received this:



My name is Mr. Denis Brown. I am a banker with the Ned Bank of South Africa.
I am still working with the Bank, but am about to retire from active Bank service to start a new
life but I am skeptical to reveal this particular secret to a stranger .You must assure me that everything will be handled confidentially because we are not going to suffer again in life.

It has been 10 years now that most of the greedy African Politicians used our bank to launder
money to overseas through the help of their Political advisers. Most of the funds which they transferred out of the shores of Africa were gold and oil money that was supposed to have been used to develop the continent. Their Political advisers always inflated the amounts before transfer to foreign accounts so I also used the opportunity to divert part of the money hence I am aware that there is no official trace of how much was transferred as all the accounts used for such transfers were being closed after transfer. I acted as the Bank Officer to most of the politicians and when I discovered that they were using me to succeed in their greedy act; I also cleaned some of their banking records from the Bank files and no one cared to ask me because the money was too much for them to control. They laundered over $150m dollars, during the process .As I am sending this message to you; I was able to divert more than ($50m) to an escrow account belonging to no one in the bank. The bank is anxious now to know who the beneficiary to the funds is because they have made a lot of profits with the funds. It is more than ten years now and most of the politicians are no longer using our bank to transfer funds overseas. The $30M has been laying waste but I don't want to retire from the bank without transferring the funds to a foreign account to enable me share the proceeds with the receiver. The money will be shared 60% for me and 40% for you.
There is no one coming to ask you about the funds because I secured everything. I only want you to
assist me by providing available bank account where the funds can be transferred. You are not to face
any difficulties or legal implications as I am going to handle the transfer personally. If you are capable of receiving the funds, do let me know by replying me immediately to enable me give you detailed
information on what to do.
For me, I have not stolen the money from anyone because the other people that took the whole money
did not face any problems. This is my chance also to grab my own but you must keep the details of the
funds secret to avoid leakages as no one in the bank knows about the funds.
Please supply me the following:
Your current contact address and Telephone Numbers. Whether you will be able to come down to my
country to meet me before the commencement of the transfer.
I shall intimate you on what to do when I get your confirmation and acceptance.
If you are capable of being my trusted associate, do declare your consent to me.
Waiting for your urgent response.

Mr. Denis Brown

What is the reason for submitting a typical Nigerian scam? Mar 6, 2013

Even in my obscure Poland I got tons of it already, first by fax and then by e-mail and I never notified anybody

Besides it doesn't concern translators.
