From: Mrs. Nazek Audi Hariri.

Attn: Sir/Maddam,

Greetings to you, with warm heart I offer my friendship, and greetings, and I hope this mail meets you in good time.

However strange or surprising this contact might seem to you as we have not met personally or had any dealings in the past, I humbly ask that you take due consideration of its importance and the immense benefit it will be to you.

After careful consideration with my children, we resolved to contact you for your most needed assistance in this manner. I duly apologize for infringing on your privacy, if this contact is not acceptable to you, as I make this proposal to you as a person of integrity.

First and foremost I wish to introduce myself properly to you. My name is Mrs.Nazek Audi Hariri, mother of five, my husband Mr. Rafik Baha al-din Hariri a very successful businessman and proficient politician in Lebanon.

Though I was involved in some of my husband's business, which was very vast and successful. My beloved husband was among those killed in the massive explosion that rocked central Beirut's fashionable seafront district, on his way back from Lebanon parliament on 14th February.

When my husband died, I was contacted as next of kin by a private
security firm in Europe to come forth to claim the consignment with the Certificate of Deposit and claim a safety deposit my husband has in their Vault in his name.

I discovered a Certificate of Deposit for the safety deposit with this private security firm, and other documents relating to the safety deposit in a book. The safety deposit, which is a trunk box, is stocked with hard currency (US Dollars) totaling $36,000,000 (thirty SIX Million US Dollar),which was generated from cash payments from hisbusiness associates.

Though I knew my late husband was a politician and the money was
reserved for May election campaign.

This came as a shock to me and my children, and we have decided to have this fund invested immediately in commercial and residential properties in abroad as well as profitable ventures, now that the U.S.A Govt. has ordered Syria Govt. to leave and not to intervene in any Lebanon affair and we dont know what is going to happen, hence we sincerely propose to you to render us your most needed assistance in this regard.

If you agree to render us your assistance, your role in thisproject will be to act on my behalf as a trustee to receive the safety deposit containing the funds from the Security firm.

Though I believe this transaction should be based on mutuality,we are offering you 20% 0f the funds and another 5% for the miscallenous expenses that may comes up during this transaction.

When my late husband was alive he was accepted among the populace, but most of the politician here they did not agree with his policy, after my late husband's death,we went to poll,but we lost the election to opposition party.the set of people that could not accomodate the opposition party.
Ever since,member of my late husband family and his political associate has been subjected to witch-hunting by the incumbent goverment this affected some of my late husband's bussiness.

I thank you in advance as we anticipate your assistance in enabling us achieve this goal.

As you may understand, due to my husband sensitive position in the
present government, it is not safe to communicate with me via phone or fax.

Please all your correspondence should be forwarded to( and I will like us to keep this way, for the safety of this transaction.

Whether or not you are interested in assisting us. This will enable us make alternative plans, in the event of non-interest on your part.


Dear Ms:

I read your letter with great interest. I'm sorry for your loss.

I'am interested in doing business with you. I have a representative in Lebanon, who can meet you. I'm sure you will think of him as a comrade.

You will be happy to know, that the money will be used in Lebanon, to help promote social change, in all the federated states in the Middle East.

When my representatives meets with you, for security, he is bringing his body guards. With so much $$$ involved, I'm sure you'll understand.

Gee that's funny. I also received the same message and aswered it as follows:

Dear Ms.Hariri

I am glad you decided to contact me. It was so clever to write your letter to deposit in my email spam box and remain hidden from predatory eyes. I was overcome with sadness at the fate of your husband, But, what the hell, you have to take care of yourself, right?

I have determined a way to bring you and the money to the Untied Slates of Aremica. A friend in Lebanon will contact you. You will authorize transfer of the $36,000,000 to him. He will then present papers to you that will transfer into your name the titles of two USA properties of much greater value. After securing the funds, he will then accompany you to Mexico. Be assured we have no difficulty moving people from there into the USA.

One of those properties is a large tract in central New York City. It was previously the site of two tall buildings that were razed to the ground after interfering with airline traffic. A large memorial is planned for the property. You will be able to name that to honor your husband when you take ownership. The US population has been brought to revere the site and whatever you choose to place there will be very profitable.

The other property is an extremely large white house on expansive grounds in Washington, D.C. We are now taking steps to remove its current resident, who has not worked out. The house will be ready for your occupancy complete with full servant staff and operatives to serve your pleasures. People of the USA consider it a duty to provide unimaginable wealth and power for the White House occupant. You will be well repayed and able to continue the tradition of a family dynasty exercising world control.

Your glorious future is dawning,
(name withheld)

Because it comes to mind, and one never turns down the opportunity to quote Monty Python:

Wife: Have you got anything without SPAM?
Waitress: Well, there's SPAM egg sausage and SPAM, that's not got much SPAM in it.
Wife: I don't want any SPAM!
Man: Why can't she have egg bacon SPAM and sausage?
Wife: That's got SPAM in it!
Man: Hasn't got as much SPAM in it as SPAM egg sausage and SPAM, has it?
Vikings: SPAM SPAM SPAM SPAM... Lovely SPAM! Wonderful SPAM!

Wouldn't have wasted a second on it myself Ren.. It would have been deleted with extreme prejudice!

I have my spammers. I am glad that they kept calling Madame Bovary (last year) in a French Cultural Center and other official places. (I actually gave them several phone numbers, all of them official, on a rather high level so to speak.) For some reason I will never understand, the meeting never took place, though I was more than ready to meet them in London. It is not my fault: I was very willing to receive from them such a huge sum. I also had a lengthy chat with Suha Arafat, who, for a reason I will never understand, wanted the PO out of her financial transactions.

Yet, some (shall I say greed) paid a very high price for such transactions, the last I remember was a student from Hungary, he had to sell his apartment finally.

I think Dr Theo is a bit of a dick. I get these emails all the time, mostly from Nigeria, but I have also received letters from the son of Kofi Anan, the son of the president of South Africa.


It’s a con, Ren.

419 fraud, was named after the section of the Nigerian criminal code that it violates...ok lets call it scam!

beepbeepitsme said...

Funny reply.

troutsky said...

according to Harpers Index "amount that Britons paid to "Nigerian -style" email scams last year: $661,500,000" .damn.

LeftyHenry said...

have they responded yet RE?

Frank Partisan said...

I didn't actually send it. I thought it was a new twist, for the 419ers to be fixing on the Lebanon situation, and I could get a joke in on Marxist from Lebanon.
