I'm not sure if I should post this here or in another area of eater. I've received a 419 email in my catcher account and it stands out because it is very well written. It lacks the usual grammatical errors that lads make. Actually, I think it is written by somebody whose first language is English. The scammer claims to be in London.

I'm fairly new here and not sure if I'm allowed to post the entire email here, so I won't in this post. However, if it is allowed I will post the email in its entirety, including the email address and name of the scammer.

Also, compared to most initial 419 emails, this one is extremely short.

Hi Josslyn, feel free to post the email you received, well written emails are not at all unusual, bearing in mind that quiet a few scammers are university educated people. Please post the email headers when posting.

Hi josslyn,

That's not so unusual in my experience. I see a lot of reasonably well written first scripts, and I'm seeing more and more shorter scripts.

Have you replied? I'll bet the language skills drop a notch or two.

There's no problem with posting it.
Post the full header as well though. You can blank out your own address if you're the kind who wears a tin-foil hat. Wink

Okay, here it is. I don't wear a tin foil hat but sometimes I may wear a dunce hat (I'm still a bit green at all of this) Confused . I don't think I'm going to bait this guy so if anybody wants him, let me know and I'll forward the email from my catcher account. If I need to provide anything else, let me know.

Dear Friend,

It’s my pleasure to contact you over this transaction and I hope for your assistance on this matter.

I discovered a dormant account in my office as a group director with a bank here in London; presently the account is in an escrow account It will be of my interest to transfer this money worth half a Million Pounds in an account offshore. If you can assist me in getting this money transferred out of London then invest with it and also establish partnership.

Contact me if you think you can handle such amount and kindly remember that this is very confidential.

I wait to hear from you.

Regards

Jerry Brown
Group Finance Director


Edit: Correct placement of quote

Wow, a million pounds? I don't know if I'm strong enough to carry all of that. Maybe I can help in some other way, though? Wink Laughing

Oh, yes. I forgot about Jerry Brown, the governor of California. Wonder if it's the same guy Smile.

I'm happy that somebody is going to bait him. I'm afraid that I'm too inexperienced at this point. The email does concern me because it doesn't set off as many warning bells, to me, as the usual ones. It may be more convincing to potential victims.

I know people that work in banks. I'll have to ask them to keep an eye out for dormat accounts.
