A new one on me: Korean"Nigerian" e-mail
A new scam e-mail to me. Y'know, it's just me, but I wouldn't go around claiming to be Noh Tae Woo's brother, if I was in Hong Kong -- wouldn't that be like going around Mexico City claiming to be Michael Corleone's brother - i.e., a little too close for comfort? Anyway, sorry if my heart doesn't bleed for you . . . "Don't cry for me, South Korea . . ."
Greetings from me and my family.
Getting your contact was not an easy task [I bet] because since I am not computer literate, I ordered my son to seek a partner very far away and he went to the institute of International Business to apply and he paid them the charges. My name is NOH DAE-JUNG, The brother of GENERAL. NOH TAE-WOO, the former President of South Korea who ascended to power through a popular electoral victory in 1988 to 1992. After serving duly, he was accused of mass embezzlement which ran into billions of won because of the GREAT OLYMPICS 1988 which brought Korea to the world lime light, and was arrested but released after long years of incarceration and now under scrutiny.
Before my brother's was overthrown, I secretly siphoned the sum of 30 mil United States Currency out of Seoul and deposited the money with a security firm that transports valuable goods and through diplomatic means.I am contacting you because I want you to deal with the security company and claim the money on my behalf since I have declared that the consignment belong to my foreign business partner. You shall also be required to assist me in investment in your country. I expect you to declare what percentage of the total money you will take for your assistance. When I receive your positive response I will let you know where the security company is and the payment pin code to claim the money which is very important.we do not want the government of my Country to know about the money because they will believe I got the money from my brother while he was still in office as president .Once you confirm the receipt of the money ,I will come over with my Children to your Country or any Country in Europe to start a new life with my Family. As soon as payment is effected, and the amount mentioned above is successfully transferred into your account, we intend to use our own share in acquiring some estates abroad. For this too you shall also be our overseas manager of all our properties and you will be paid based on a certain percentage agreed on by both parties. For now, let all our communication be by e-mail because my line is right now connected to the South Korean Telecommunication Network services therefore we can not take the chances of being heard.
Thank you in anticipation of your cooperation.
Col. Noh Dae-Jung.
Really brings a tear to the eye, doesn't it?
