From the Scammer:

Mr.Cornelius R.G. Obert
5 Keyes Avenue
Rosebank 2196
Johannesburg Branch,
Republic of South Africa.
Email: [email protected].

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am Cornelius R.G. Obert, Branch Manager Commerzbank AG. ,South Africa.
This is an urgent and very confidential business proposition.

On June 6, 2000,a Foreign Oil consultant/contractor with the South African
Institute of Mining and Metallurgy, Mr.Clifford Stone made a numbered
time(Fixed) Deposit for twelve calendar months, valued at
US$26,500,000.00,(Twenty-six Million, five hundred thousand Dollars) in my

Upon maturity,I sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but
got no reply. After a month,we sent a reminder and finally we discovered
from his contract employers, the National Petroleum Corporation that
Mr.Clifford Stone died from an automobile accident.

On further investigation,I found out that he died without making a
WILL,and all attempts to trace his next of kin was fruitless.

I therefore made further investigation and discovered that Mr.Clifford Stone
did not declare any kin or relations in all his official documents,including
his Bank Deposit paperwork in my Bank. This sum of US$26,500,000.00 has
carefully been fixed in my bank for safekeeping.

No one will ever come forward to claim it.According to South African Law,
at the expiration of 5 (five) years, the money will revert to the ownership
of the Government if nobody applies to claim the fund.

Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you as a Foreigner to stand
in as the owner of the money which was fixed deposited in my bank. I am
writing you because I as a public servant,i cannot operate a foreign

I want to present you as the owner of the funds so you can be able to
claim them with the help of my attorney. This is simple.I will like you to
provide immediately your full names and address so that the Attorney will
prepare the necessary documents which will put you in place as the
beneficiary of the funds.

The money will be moved out for us to share in the ratio of 80% for me and
20% for you. The paperwork for this transaction will be done by the Attorney
and this will guarantees the successful execution of this transaction.

If you are interested, please reply immediately via my email address and Upon you
r response,
I shall then provide you with more details and relevant documents that will help y
ou understand the transaction.

Please observe utmost confidentiality, and be rest assured that this
transaction would be most profitable for both of us because I shall require
your assistance to invest my share in real estate within your country.

Due to the nature of confidentiality in this Transaction our communication
can only be via email .

Awaiting your urgent reply via my email Above.

Thanks and my regards.

Mr.Cornelius R.G. Obert,
Manager,Commerzbank AG.

And my reply:

Mr. Obert,

I am very interested in the financial transaction you mentioned in your letter.
Please note my correct email address is [email protected] Please send
further correspondence to this address - the address you mailed me at before is
a front to filter out all the unwanted email.

I cannot believe my good fortune that such an event would transpire leading a
man like yourself to contact me about this matter. By my calculations, a share
of 20% of that vast fortune comes to around $5.3 million US. A very handsome
sum and so of course you have my undivided attention.

I have brought your letter to the attention of our legal staff here and they
assure me that such events do indeed happen and that my participation is 100%

Please let me know what is to be done in order to finalize this action.

Dr. Holden McCocque, M.D.
Chief Executive Officer
McCoque Pharmaceuticals
Makers of Gitsum - FDA Approved substitute for Rohypnol.

Glad you decided to have some fun!

1) Edit your post and remove your bait's email addy.
Some tosser is probably tiping your bait off already and pointing them to this site.

2) Wait until your bait gets going before publishing, Often they will just dry up after a few emails.

3) Read shiver's tips on baiting from the home page.

4) Keep having fun! You look like you have the right sense of humor for this.
