FW: Urgent Communication
Hmm, it’s tempting but I wonder if this could be a scam?
Dear American Taxpayer:
I am MR TREASURER HENRY PAULSON, a trusetd public official of America government, greetings.
I need to ask you to support an urgent secret business relationship with a transfer of funds of great magnitude.
I am Ministry of the Treasury of the Republic of America. My country has had crisis that has caused the need for large transfer of funds of 800 billion dollars US. If you would assist me in this transfer, it would be most profitable to you. This transactin will be utmost secure and privacy.
I am working with Mr. PHIL GRAMM, lobbyist for UBS, who will be my replacement as Ministry of the Treasury in January. As a Senator, you may know him as the leader of the American banking deregulation movement in the 1990s. This transactin is 100% safe I assure you.
This is a matter of a great urgency. We need a blank check we need the funds sent as quickly as possible. We cannot directly transfer these funds in the names of our close friends because we are constantly under surveillance. My family lawyer a Christian gentleman advised me that I should look for a reliable and trustworthy person who will act as a next of kin so the funds can be transferred. I am writing of you from my private email to avoid surveillance and the subpoenas.
Please reply with all of your bank account, IRA and college fund account numbers and those of your children and grandchildren to email@example.com so that we may transfer your commission for this transaction. After I receive that information, I will respond with detailed information about safeguards that will be used to protect the funds.
Yours Faithfully Minister of Treasury MR TREASURER HENRY PAULSON
