Unbelievable twist on an old wheeze

I brought out my editing pen for this scam–it has a headbanger plot point.

Hello,

I am very sorry for contacting you this way, I got your email address on a guest book people search. I am in contact with other 2 partners in india but this 2 partners location in india city is not good for business investment. I am Afghan central bank governor and name is Abdul Qadeer Fitrat. I am having problem with my bank and i am presently in a hiding place and i don’t want to disclose myself to anyone in my country but i need to secure my future by keeping $60,000,000.00 Million in a safe bank account. I can’t do open business with people but i need a secret partner to help and receive this funds for investment.

i will give you my personal bank officer contact details to contact secretly for the claim of $60,000.000.00 Million. You will receive these funds and use it for investment purpose.

I hope I can trust you? When i am in active duties in my bank i transfer $130,000,000.00 Million to an USA trusted partner but this USA partner ran away with my $130,000,000.00 Million and i lost all funds.

Please help me and God bless you.

Yours faithfully,
Abdul Qadeer Fitrat

I think we’ve seen a thousand of these, but I admit, this is the first one I’ve gotten claiming to be Afghani. By itself it’s not enough to lift this scam out of the ho hum, but what caught my eye was his “terrible experience” in trusting people.

Hmm, trusting random strangers worked so well with the first $130,000,000 million (isn’t that bigger than all the world economies plus the national debt? More points off!) that he’s going to try it again!

TSTL protag. Form rejection.
