Scammer E-mails - PJ - 07-20-2020

I get these things pretty regularly.  Some of them are at least a bit convincing others are pretty close to the Nigerian Prince ruse.  Here is one I received today:


With all due respect, I am looking to work with you to engage in profit oriented ventures in your country and perhaps with your assistance, we could get good ROI (Return on Investment). I served as Personal Assistant to former Minister of Energy; Jeff Radebe during his short reign. Also I am in charge of signing the Bank Drafts deposited in the Banks for Contract settlement. It is with a good spirit of heart I open up this great opportunity to you.

I contacted you to stand as the partner/Contractor abroad; who can accommodate 70M USD for Investments. The sums are over invoice derived from a Supply Contract carried out by a foreign company with the South African Department of Energy during the short reign of Minister Jeff Radebe who resigned as South Africa Energy Minister on 10th of June, 2019. I am very sensitive and confident to ask for your partnership in re-profiling this fund.

I will reassign the necessary documents to reflect your name and also ensure payment is done to you by the Department of Energy under the auspices of the South African Government. I guarantee we shall implement this transaction under a legitimate arrangement without breaking the law.

(1) 45% for you as the foreign partner
(2) 45% for me
(3) 10% will set aside to defray all incidental expenses both locally and internationally by me and you during the course of this transaction.

More details will follow upon your reply.
