Hat tip to Snergly Bear for passing this along, the latest Nigerian Bushliburton scam to fleece the American public:
Subject: Supper secret transaction Need you’re help
Bright Greetings Dear American:
I need to ask you to support an urgent secret business relationship
with a transfer of funds of great magnitude.
I am Ministry of Treasury of the Republic of America. My country
has had a crisis that has caused the need for a large transfer of
funds of 700 billion dollars US. If you would assist me in this
transfer, it would be most profitable to you.
I am working with renowned Mr. Phil Gram, lobbyist for UBS, who
will be my replacement as Ministry of 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.
This is a matter of great urgency. We need a blank check. We need
the funds 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 advised me that I should look
for reliable and trustworthy person who will act as a next of kin
so the funds can be transferred.
Please reply with all of your bank account, IRA and college fund
account numbers and those of your children and grandchildren to
firstname.lastname@example.org so that we transfer your
commission for this transaction. After I receive you’re information,
I will respond with detailed information about safeguards that will
be used to protect the funds.
Wonderful salutations to you cherish friend from Republic of America.
Minister of Treasury Paulson
