This was from a Gatchina.RU email address and the CC was to “Nic”.
I am not sure if Nic was hoping to fool me into beliving that he was Ahmed or if Ahmed hacked
Nic’s email… either way - I am not biting. 

Hello Dear,

Is my pleasure to writing you this letter, hope you are fine? I want to
use this opportunity to introduce myself well to you; I am Ahmed Hassan
Abdullah, the son of late Mohammed Hassan Hussein Abdullah of Libya. I
write you in respect of our consignment fund that was moved into ASIA
through the security company and is in a two trunk boxes and which
presently under a diplomatic care. I want you to assist me and my mother to
stand as our new beneficiary to receive the fund over there in your
country. The amount in this consignment is $18 million U.S. Dollars which
my late father deposited under SECURITY COMPANY for my mother and myself
before his death.

This consignment was moved to ASIA to be handed down to our former
beneficiary Mr. William Seji-Yoon Choi, who agreed to receive these
consignment in ASIA on our behalf, but on arrival of the consignment in
ASIA, our beneficiary was demanding for 60% and that was never our initial
agreement, so for that reason my mother and I did not agree anymore with
him and the best thing is to stop the delivery as we can no longer trust a
man like that who has many words.

Now we need someone that will assist us to receive these consignment as
beneficiary as the security company has agreed to deliver to anywhere our
new beneficiary may want it. We have all necessary documents in our
possession which I will send to you the moment I hear from you, confirming
your readiness. We are prepared to give you 20% of the money for your
assistance as that was our initial agreement with William Seji-Yoon Choi,
before his change of mind due to greed.

In your reply, indicate yourself with information below:-

(a) Your physical Address:

(b) Your Telephone Number:

(c) Your International Passport ID or Valid Drivers License:

(d) Age/ Martial Status:

(e) Occupation:

Upon the receipt of this information, we shall respond back to you with
details. Waiting for your anticipated co-operation!

Best Regards,

Ahmed and Mum
For the family

I’ve got a regular scammer. About once a week, ‘Noreen Noor’ will send me a new email, plaintively beseeching my aid in draining my wallet. Always something different, too. I’m fairly impressed by their productivity and their lack of quality control.

This was from a Gatchina.RU email address

So how do you pronounce Gatchina.RU? Is it “Gat china.RU” or is the t silent and pronounced as “Gay china.RU”?

See. This is how my mind works.

Robin, I received a similar one of those emails and sent an email to the base commander @ 3rd Brigade regarding the sender without response from the commander. The format was much simpler and said it was from a Captain looking to move some money via diplomatic courier. I suspected it was a scam or something to besmirtch a legit officer’s good name… so I figured I ought to give the military first option to review. Obviously they have seen it before. Your example looks really poorly formatted and obviously a scam… sad.
