Here’s an attempt at an email scam that nobody should ever fall for. Seriously, it’s like they weren’t even trying:
From: “Mr. R. Jan” <[removed]@gmail.com>
Sent 9/6/2009 3:21:48 PM
Subject: ATTENTION NEEDED
My name is Mr. Jan and I am contacting you from Liberia for
a mutual business relationship and investment.
I have some funds realized through contract brokerage and I
need your cooperation to invest the funds.
The first stage requires transferring the funds to your
account for subsequent investment.
I therefore want you to work with me as a partner. On
receipt of your response, I will send you full details of
the transaction and more information about myself. I
am waiting for your prompt response.
I’m not even going to bother picking this thing apart. Yes, it’s a total scam. Yes, you should just delete it. No, it’s not a real investment opportunity.
