Email Alerts Triage

25 Mar

We are currently diagnosing a strange email alert issue that is affecting a sub-set of our members which started earlier today.

If you are missing significant amount of email alerts in the past few hours, please leave a blog comment with the name of your email provider. For example, if your email is joe@hotmail.com, just leave a comment with @hotmail.com. Do not leave your full email address for privacy reasons.

With your help, we can better hunt down the underlying cause.

      MR.MOHAMED OMAR
      FINANCIAL BANK BENIN (F.B.B)
      COTONOUN RUPUBLIC OF BENIN
      WEST AFRICA

      Dear Friend,
      I have a proposal for you, this however is not mandatory nor will I in any manner compel you to honour the content against your will. I am Mr. Mohamed Omar; I work with a bank (one of the leading banks in Africa ). Here in this bank exists a dormant account for the past 8years which belongs to an Germany national who is now late, by name Mr. Christian Eich the account owner an engineer who ran Carmaker BMW’s Museum, his wife and two children and his wife’s parents were also among the victims in a plane crash of Alaska airlines flight number AF4590 which crashed on 31st July, 2000.
      When I discovered that there had been no deposits or withdrawals from this account for this long period, I decided to carry out a system investigation and discovered that none of the family members or relations of the late person is aware of this account. Now I want an account overseas where the bank will transfer this fund.

      Thereafter, I will destroy all related documents to this account. It is a careful network and for the past eleven months I have worked out everything to ensure a hitch-free operation. The amount plus all the accumulated interest is the sum of (US$60.6Million,) Twelve Million, Six Hundred Thousand Dollars only.
      Now my questions are: –
      1. Can you handle this project?
      2. Can I give you this trust?
      3. What will be your commission if you can facilitate the movement of this fund to your account? As I intend giving you 40% of the total amount……….

      Consider these and get back to me as soon as possible with your full names, private telephone, Mobile and fax numbers, corresponding postal address, etc. Finally, it is my humble request that the information as contained herein be accorded with every confidentiality and the necessary secrecy it deserves I expect your urgent response.
