I’ve just received a cracking advance-fee fraud attempt that’s trying to pitch leftover funds from some “sharp practice” in the stadium construction. I can’t wait to see the first one claiming to have a load of 2012 Olympics money up for grabs.
THE HEADQUARTER SOUTH AFRICAN 2010 CONTRACT IMPLEMENTING DEPARTMENT
In a brief introduction, I am Mr. SAMSON MUDAU Secretary Contract bidding and Implementation of Local Organizing Committee of South Africa Football Association (SAFA) for FIFA Word-cup 2010 to be held in South Africa. Our Committee was in charge for the contract bidding for the construction of six new stadiums and renovation of four existing stadiums to meet the World and FIFA specified standards both foreign and local contractors were involved in these projects execution.
In course of exercising our duties, we were in few sharp practices which have fetched us the sum US$8.2M (Eight Million Two Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) which we intend to transfer out of our country now that the works at the sites of the six new stadiums are coming up to completion level. For us to realize the transfer of this deliberate over estimate of contract value and kickback, we received from two foreign firms, we needed a foreign partner, and thus I contacted you.
I wish to assure you that this transaction is risk and hitch free as we are still in service with our government and cannot afford to make any mistake because of our reputation. This above amount can be transferred to your nominated personal or company name which you will send for the purpose of the execution of this mutual benefit transaction.
For more details on how this transaction can be realized. Feel free to contact me on this private email. firstname.lastname@example.org Remember like in all conspired deal confidentiality should be our watch word.
Thanks for your anticipated response.
Mr. SAMSON MUDAU.
