In my mail..

Hello,

Libya is liberated today because of the death of Gadhafi.
Gadhafi refused to pay most foreign Contractor since the
past 8 years because he was trying to discourage many Foreign
Contractors. His idea was to Indigenize the Contract to Libya
Citizens only and most foreign Expatriate were not paid their
Contract Sum before leaving Libya.

Recently, the National Transitional Council(NTC) has commerce
payment of all outstanding Contract sum. I work with Libya
Ministry of Commence and Development. I and my Colleague was
invited by NTC to compile Names of all Foreign Expatriate that
executed contract with the Ministry since the past 8 years that
has not been paid. We have made compilation of many Expatriate
files and they have been paid within the past few weeks.




I have the Names of all Expatriate with their Files and i want
you to provide an Expatriate account so that i can submit it
with an Expatriate file to receive a contract sum.

This is an urgent situation and it will take less than 5 days
to have the Contract sum transferred to this account immediately
it is provided. I cannot vividly state the amount that will be
transferred to the account but it will be above 3.9 million US
dollars because no Contract was bellow that amount in the list
of Foreign Expatriate Contract with the Ministry.
we are going to share in the ration of 50/50 any amount the bank
will send to the Expatriate Account you are going to provide.

Please understand that i do not need your personal Bank account
or your personal informations because they are

or your personal informations because they are not required
hence, i already have details of the Expatriate involved. I only
need an Expatriate account to receive the contract sum. I will
inform you on how to get this done after confirming your interest.
I just need a strong guarantee that i will have my share after
the transfer. Please reply with your full Names to my

U know when I think of it....is it happening, I mean are they trying to con someone or is just a prank. I mean seriously, look at the vocabulary, even that is lame.

I really just don't get it...why do they keep doing this ?
 
This type of scam has been going for years; I think it originated in Nigeria where it has a generic type name based on the legal law that it contravenes- something like 457?
It persists because it works; maybe less than 0.0001% but it works and costs nothing to perpetrate. I despair and feel little sympathy when another case is exposed in the press - 'mother loses life savings in internet scam...' :mad:

regards, SOBT

The odd vocabulary is because the emails are generated so they are all slightly different to try and fool the spam filters. For a lot of the words there will be a list of alternatives so that your email will be different to the others.

You guys on so suspicious. What makes you think it is a scam?

You don't realize how lucky you are Rifaa. I'll bet very few got an email like this.

You should send the information and you will be a very rich man soon! :)

Actually a local talk show host claims he emailed one of these guys back giving his phone number. The guy called back and he had him on the phone for a 1/2 hour jerking him around.
