 New Internet Scam Warning

I don't know who else has seen these internet scams but I am sure that someone is biting or they would not posts them.

Again I think that they are coming out of African, maybe Nigeria. The message was washed through a number of sites, AOL, Excite, lycos and netscape. Time indicates it was sent before I recieved it. Probably the same group that was trying to buy tractors. Please beware of internet fraud!!!

ADDRESS No, 25MORNINGSIDE
ROAD OFF KELLY AVE SANDTON
JOHANNESBURG.SOUTH AFRICA.
TELL+NUMBER+27-83-472-9685


ATTN:

STRICTLY PERSONAL AND CONFIDENTIAL

I know this letter will come as a surprise to you. But consider it as a letter for
plea with goodwill for a mutual assistance. I managed to get your contact info online
at the South Africa information exchange here in Johannesburg South Africa. Hence I
did not waste time to contact you on this business proposal.

First I deem it important to introduce myself. I am MR.DAVID SAVIMBI, the first son
of the third wife of late JONAS SAVIMBI the rebel leader of ANGOLAN UNITED FORCE. Who
was assassinated on Friday? 22nd February 2002 Last Year By Angolan government army,
If you do watch CNN, you will realize this is on the news, Unfortunately for me, my
mother is the wife of my late father JONAS SAVIMBI and as such we were not all treated
fairly in the family. Not withstanding my father ' political ideology, which I prayed
him to, change before his apparent death. His first wife and her son who was hoping
to succeed my late father as the next president. Jose Eduardo dos Santo have
dominated my entire father assets and properties. In spite of this dominance, I still
maintained close contact with my father, which eventually just paid off. Following
the news of his death and the confirmation on our national day of the incident, I was
in my father private house in lubango province.

Before the death of My father, he took me to South Africa to deposit the sum of
(Fourty five million United States Dollars) US$45million, with a security and
finance company, as if he know that looming danger in my country Angolan. The money
was deposited as a gem or precious stone to avoid much demurrage from the security
firm.the money was acquired from the sales of diamonds and gold in my country
Angolan. I am presently residing as an Asylum seeker (Refugee). And is where this
money is deposited, I must let you know that this transaction is 100% risk free.

Meanwhile the rest of my family were still busy mourning the death of my late father
Nobody know my where about or why I fled the country. Right now, I want you to assist
me to transfer this money into your account in your country, where I will invest it
in any lucrative business as you may advise me. For your assistance I will offer you
25% of the total sum of money and 5% will be set aside for any expenses we may incur
in due cause of transfer. While the rest 70% will be for me and my family from my
mother. Should this letter receive your honor, please do not hesitate to contact me
on my direct number: +27-83-472-9685. And most important you should keep this secret
until the money leaves South Africa and is in your account.

I wait anxiously to hear from you.

Best regards,


Mr.DAVID SAVIMBI

 New Internet Scam Warning

It's funny how these scams pop up every few months or years. I saw this one first a few years ago and it comes around every six months or so. Somebody must be biting and it's amazing that people never seem to learn.
