This spam is a message for property sales.
Hello, I want to acquire your property, please contact me with the details. Sincere. Dave Grey.
after u reply him, second email
Thank you for your response. I'm glad to note in your mail that your property is still available; I am genuinely interested to buy the property, I am not living in Macedonia presently, as to enable me come for a personal inspection of the property before paying for it. At the time, I am stationed in Iraq, although I want to relocate to Macedonia in the near future, which is why I desire to buy the property from you.
And please, beside the issue of buying the property I also have another important matter, which I would like to discuss with you in what follows:
I am a USA Army working in Iraq on relief assignment by The International Committee: War in Iraq. On the other hand, i want to inform you that i have in my possession the sum of 22,000.000 million Euros, which i got from crude oil deal in Iraq. I deposited this money with a Red Cross.
My sincere intention in writing you is to gain your kind permission and acceptance to receive the money on my behalf in Macedonia and also make investment with it. For your permission and acceptance, I will give you 30% commission as well as buy the property from you.
If possible, may I request you to send me your information? Only if you are comfortable with this request. This is purely for the purpose of sending the money to you. The information needed is: Your full name, your private phone number, your full address.
If I get the above information and your full acceptance, I will send the money over to Macedonia, so that you will receive it for me before I can start coming over.
Write me as soon as you read this mail.
and after replying and few emails later, here is the scam
The arrangement is thus: every week a UN relief plane leaves Iraq to Europe to carry relief items back to Iraq, so the amount will be concealed in a metal safe and labelled as official diplomatic bag or pouch and transported in a UN air-plane to Europe, United Kingdom. This means that the safe will be "inviolable" and "untouchable" and have "Diplomatic Immunity" that will guarantee a safe and CONFIDENTIAL transport of the parcel to Europe. When it gets to London, I have arranged for a UN diplomatic courier who will pick up the delivery from the UN air-plane and then deliver it to you in Macedonia. His name is Jeffrey Smith. As a UN diplomatic Courier Mr. Smith is duly authorised by the UN, either on a regular basis or for a special occasion as a courier. He is entrusted with the custody, transportation and delivery of the diplomatic bag and is employed for the official communications of the UN. He will accompany the safe from England, United Kingdom to Macedonia and deliver it to you there.
Aside his being a diplomatic Courier, Mr. Smith is an instructor with the UN on peace support, humanitarian relief, and security operations. I have great confidence in him; however, because of safety, he will not be aware of the true content of the safe. He will only know that the safe contains your personal things, which he is to deliver to you in Macedonia.
I can send the box money to you by this week. All that is required for the delivery to take place is your full names, direct telephone number and address. I pray you accept this arrangement because i earnestly desire to get the money out of the way before leaving Iraq. I don't want to leave without first moving the money from here. Hope you can understand.
NOTE: I will send the box money as containing your personal things/goods and not money. So, the diplomat who will receive the box money in United Kingdom, Europe and bring it to you in Macedonia will never know that it contains money.
If the above arrangement is acceptable to you and if it will be convenient for you to give me the needed assistance, kindly revert back to me.
This is introductino for Ms. Smith
....As I explained in my previous e-mails, Mr. Smith does not know the true content of the box. For the course of safety he only knows that the safe contains your personal things which he is to help deliver/hand over to you at your address in Macedonia. So please take note.
Please, you should kindly write him at his e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) today or early Tuesday morning and let him know the airpoort that is nearest to you. Or you can call him at his Direct Telephone Number: +447924012118 and give him this information verbally.
The amount in the package is the mentioned 22 million Euros only. When you take over the safe from Mr. Smith in Macedonia, when you get to your home, I shall give to you the complete key combination HA01YJ***. The remaining 3 key code, I shall give to you once the box is with you and you have it under your custody. This key is an electronic code and when you have entered it correctly, a green light will appear on the front panel of the safe confirming that the safe is open. When the code is re-entered, a red light will appear confirming that the safe is closed. I hope all is clear to you?.....
And finally, the longl awaited money request aka spam/scam
