(Warning: Extremely minor ME2 spoiler)

Hello. My name is Commander Shepard. I am a Cerberus operative commanding the Normandy SR-2. While on my travels to save the galaxy from the Collectors, I received this great offer via extranet-mail. It seems too good to be true. Could it be a scam?


From: Mister Ganak Ej'hal, Esq.

Dear Sir or Madam,

Having consulted with my colleagues at the Citadel, I have the privilege to request for your assistance to transfer a large quantity of Prothean technology uncovered at Ilos. Believing these materials to be a hazardous danger, they were locked in quarantine. Even though the tests revealed that the fears were groundless, the quarantine remains in effect until one can pay for a permit to request a reclassification from the cultural ministry.

Knowing of your interest in Prothean technology, I would be happy to deliver most of it into your hands, keeping less than half for myself. As a batarian, I cannot engage in Council official activities, but if you transfer the 20,000 credits required to me, this exchange could be made in your name, enabling us both to profits from this happy accident.

Please reply urgently with your credit transfer account information.

Best regards,

Ganak Ej'hal

So I got this in the in-game email in Mass Effect 2. Figured you folks would get a kick out of it. Also have had Viagra spam too. 150 years into the future and we'll still be dealing this junk in our inbox...*sigh*...

Better ask Spock if it would be logical to invest your credits in this.
