Subject: ASSALAMU ALAIKUM.FROM ROSLIZA RAMLAH

Dear Sir/madam,
Please, l apologize for using this medium to reach you. My name is
Roslizah Ramlah Binti Rahman,i am a Malaysian, I work as the Head of Logistic Dept to NATIONAL WEST CHARTERED FINANCE COMPANY.i decided to contact you, to be my partner in business so as to help me raise capital to invest in a profitable business . I have been working with (N.W.C) company for the past 6 years.Within this period, I have watched With meticulous interest how African heads of states and government functionaries have been using
DIPLOMATIC SECURITY AND VAULTS COMPANY to shift their money abroad.
They bring in, these Consignments of money and secretly declare the content as, precious stones, family treasure Etc. The late Mobutu Seseko of Zaire, the late Gnassingbe Eyadema of Togo etc. These past heads of states and president have hundreds of consignments deposited with NATIONAL WEST CHARTERED COMPANY IN LONDON HERE. Their foreign partners, friends,
and relatives, have claimed most of this consignments. A lot of them are still unclaimed for as much as 10years; nobody may ever come for them, Because in most cases, the documents of deposit are never available to any body except the depositor, and most of them are dead. Since the inception of the 2000 millennium, NATIONAL WEST CHARTERED management changed the policy/procedure of claims of consignments. That as on as you are able to produce all the secret information as contained in the secret file of any Consignment, it will be released to you upon demand. The
late Mobutu Seseko has over 7 Consignments, deposited with several names and codes and so many nationality's. 4 of this consignment have been claimed in past (10) Ten months, after his Death. I have finished every arrangement as to the claim, for you to come and claim consignments, No.1011 containing $15 million Dollars and No.1012 containing $20 million Dollars, My plan is to supply you with all the information and documents regarding the Deposit of the Consignment by Email. Nobody will ever know I am involved in this deal in the company. I suggest upon conclusion, we share 50-50. I assure you that the business have been planned for 2 years now, and it is very secure. Please you can reach me as soon as you receive this mail.so that i can furnish you with more details how to apply to NATIONAL WEST CHARTERED COMPANY.
Hope to hear from you soonest,

bye Rosliza Ramlah Binti Rahman.
Sometimes new technology is such a pain with junk mail like these. How could the senders of such mails even think that anyone could fall for such a ridiculous scam? Or has anyone?

This just reminds me that there are a lot of people out there eager to make a fast buck out of others even if they had to cheat to do it. One easy way to cheat people is to feed on their greed. My ex-boss once fell into the trap of a professional con man because of her own greed and hatred for her competitors to her business.
