Thank you for accepting my connection on linkedin. I contacted you because of your last name (Wilhelm).
There is an opportunity at my bank. Bank of Sharjah united arab emirates (UAE) which will be of great benefits to us.
I am security conscious about what i am to share with you that is why I could not expatiate my purpose of contacting you via linkedin and i had to write you through my private email.
I will share further details with you, if you give me your word of absolute confidentiality.
I wait to hear from you.
Best regards and Allah’s blessing! Ramadan Kareem.
Okay, what’s the matter?
Let me guess. Somebody died, I’m next of kind or I have a similar name. There is a big amount of money in a bank. You want me to colaborate to get that money out of there. You promise me thousands or millions of bucks and want to share the money between you and me. Therefore I have to send you some money for the neccessary papers, stamps or whatever is needed. I send you this money, which is not much compared to the big amount waiting in the bank. And I must send you some more money, because of difficulties, and another some more money for the next unexpected step. And then, when I’ve send you some thousands of bucks, I’ll never hear again from you and of course I’ll never see the millions.
Is that, what you wanted to tell me in absolutely confidentiality?
Let’s make it short. My papal-account is firstname.lastname@example.org. Just send the millions there. After arrival of the millions I promise to send you 50% of the amount.
