No Such Thing As Free Money

The other day I received one of those dodgy emails you hear about on Watchdog. Normally I would just delete it and get on with my day but on this particular day I was in a playful mood and I thought I would have some fun with the idiot. The following is the correspondence from that email trail.

The scammers emails are very long so I have highlighted parts to save time for readers.

Dear Mr Bowen,

My name is Hon. Mr. Thembelani Thulas Nxesi.

I am a senior government official in the Department of Public works and housing ofthe Republic of South Africa and the chairman of the board in charge of the contracts award execution and supervision of all contracts in the Ministry of works and Housing.

My colleague and I are serving in the board deliberately inflated and over invoiced the contract sum, leaving an excess of US$50, 000.000.00 (Fifty Million United States dollars). At the completion of the contract, the real contract sum was paid to the original contractors, leaving the excess, which we reported to the Government that it belonged to the sub-contract or that handled part of the original contract. But the company we submitted as the beneficiary was a non-existent foreign company, which was a purported attempt by us to divert the money for our private use.

I do not intend to mince words with you, I have to tell you the truth; this is a deal but it is 100% risk-free and genuine because the contract has been perfectly and genuinely executed and completed. It depends on whether you are interested or not. Right now this amount is due for payment and is floating in the treasury not attached to
anyone/company.

We are only two people who know the origin of this fund. But we cannot claim it by ourselves because we are civil servants therefore we are looking for a trustworthy foreign company!
individual whose name we can use to claim the money for our mutual benefit.

This is strictly a business deal, but it is 100%risk-free and secure because we will use our official positions to source all the necessary approvals, official documents and certificates that will back up the fund to reflect that you/your company.

we have agreed to offer you 2.5% ofthe entire amount on conclusion of the transaction while 75% will be for us.

Please if you are interested in this proposal, I want you to respond immediately through my personal and telephone stated above for further information and directives.

Thank you for your cooperation. Your urgent reply is awaited.
Best Regards,

My Response

Dear Hon. Mr. Thembelani Thulas Nxesi,

Firstly I would like to thank you for considering me for this fantastic business opportunity. I must admit I was a bit sceptical at first but then I Googled your name and checked out your very impressive credentials (see link for his profile page) http://www.gov.za/aboutgovt/leaders/profile.php?cid=6935 and all my doubts were put to rest in seconds. You seem like a nice man.

Your proposal sounds interesting but I would need insurance that I will not be involved in anything illegal. I would like to hear more details before offering my assistance.

Regards,

Sebastian Bowen.

His Response

Dear Mr. Sebastian Bowen.

Thanks for your email and acknowledgement of my proposal, this is to confirm the receipt of your mail, note that your due share in this noble business is a 25% of the total amount to be transferred to your account, the 2.5% was a typographic error.

The agreement we shall enter into in the course of this business will also state your own 25%. Kindly send me the requested details below as to enable me submit your details to South African Ministry of Works (Exchange Control Division) to obtain approval documents in your name as the sole beneficiary of this USD$50 Million.

A) Your Company’s name:

B) Your Country of Origin:

C) Your Full name as it appears in your International Passport or ID card:

D) Your Mobile Number and Fax Numbers.

I will submit your full detailed information’s to (Exchange Control Division), for fund approval in your name immediately.

Also, provide me with some investment plans for the future.

Your earliest response will determine the pace of execution. Fill free to contact me on my mobile number below for any discussion.

Thank you for your co-operation.

My Response

Hello Hon. Mr. Thembelani Thulas Nxesi.

Thank you for responding to my email personally.

25% is a lot more than 2.5% that is a huge error. I hope this is the last error we have during this transaction or we could find ourselves in many problems.

You already have my full name as stated in my email address.

My country of origin could be France I am not sure. I never knew my parents I was an orphan. I was moved around a lot. My earliest memory is France.

Sociocorp is the name of my company.

I never give out my phone number to people I have never met in person. Being in the position that I am, I am sure you can understand.

I can ensure you I have never been a thief and I have never failed to commit to a business arrangement. My other business partners and associates would be happy to confirm this in writing.

In terms of future investments I would possibly use the money to further my research into the science of human cloning and transhumanism. My company is on the brink of discovering a genetic link that could potentially change the way we look at evolution forever.

I won’t bore you with all the details now. I hope I have provided all the necessary information to allow us to progress.

I look forward to doing business with you.

Please send my regards to Mr Cronin.

Sebastian Bowen.

His Response

Dear Mr Bowen,

I don’t think you are serious to transact with me.

My Response

Dear Hon. Mr. Thembelani Thulas Nxesi.

I am a little confused by your response. I can ensure you I am very serious. I am always serious when it comes to money, even if it’s just Monopoly. I once broke my friends finger after I caught him cheating taking cash from the bank. No joke.

If I have offended you in any way you must believe me when I say it was not my intention. I am a person who believes in doing everything with intention.

If you still would like to continue to explain your business proposition I am still willing to listen. If not it was nice speaking to you, have a nice day.

Regards,

Sebastian Bowen.

My Response

You are a minister so I assume you understand when I say I am a busy man and I do not have time for games. If you do not wish to do business then I will wish you all the best for the future.

Regards,

Sebastian Bowen.

His Response

Dear Mr. Sebastian Bowen.

This is to confirm receipt of your email including your personal details; therefore, this morning I will submit your details to South African Ministry of Works & Housing (Exchange Control Division) for the fund approval in your name.

I will contact you along with the approval documents immediately I receive the fund approval documents in your name before the end of the day.

Fill free to contact me on my mobile number below for further discussion.

Thank you for your co-operation.

My Response

Hello Hon. Mr. Thembelani Thulas Nxesi.

I am glad to hear that you are happy to proceed. After our last correspondence I was worried that you were wasting my time. I look forward to your next email.

I will have to travel to Italy today for a meeting so if I do not respond immediately do not worry I will get back to you at the next most convenient time in the day.

An item on the agenda for today’s meeting is future investment plans or research. Due to our current business arrangement I will be able to tell the board that it is likely that I have managed to secure some funds for the future. I will not tell them any details about our arrangement I would prefer to refer to you as a private silent investor.

I really hope everything goes well today I look forward to your next correspondence.

Regards,

Sebastian Bowen.

His Response

Dear Mr. Sebastian Bowen.

How are you?

After submitting your details to South African Ministry of Works (Exchange Control Division), now I am happy to inform you that the fund approval has been granted in your name as you can see in the attached documents.

What a surprise, there were no attached documents.

In view of this, kindly send your bank account details for submission to the bank on your behalf, as the beneficiary, for processing and transferring this money directly to the account without delay.

There would not be any problem transferring this money to your bank account. You will never be linked to source of the fund even after the successful transfer. The Director will re-profile the money in your name with the bank’s legal transfer documentations to avoid any suspicion.

I am anxiously waiting to receive your bank account details, fill free to contact me on my mobile number below for any discussion.

Yours very truly,

Hon. Mr. Thembelani Thulas Nxesi.

My Response

Dear, Hon. Mr. Thembelani Thulas Nxesi.

That is such good news. I have just left my meeting and I am flying back to France tonight. The meeting went well and the thought of this investment is an exciting addition to the day. I am so excited I have even let my secretary take the afternoon off to go shopping in Milan.

Once the money is transferred the first thing I will buy for myself is a Bugatti Veyron to celebrate. I don’t know if you have seen that car but it is amazing I recommend you treat yourself.

As requested here are my bank account details. If you have any problems please let me know immediately.

D. Evils Bank
Hells Lane, NY 60606
Routing number 071000013
Bank Account: 100673666

I hope the next time we speak I will be popping a bottle of the finest champagne.

All the best.

Regards,

Sebastian Bowen.

It’s been two days and I have not heard anything back from my new business partner.

My Additional Response

Dear Hon. Mr. Thembelani Thulas Nxesi.

It has been a couple days since we last spoke. Did everything go ok. When am I likely to get my 25%?

I hope you are not thinking of robbing me because that would not be a good idea.

I don’t know if you have seen the film Taken staring Liam Neeson but I should warn you that it’s a true story and it was loosely based on my life. I am not the person you want to upset. I will find you!

Respond back asap or else.

Regards,

Sebastian Bowen.

I never received anymore correspondence from Hon. Mr. Thembelani Thulas Nxesi. I would assume he is still trying to hack into the devils bank. Although I was smart enough to know this was a scam from the beginning there are many people who lose money like this everyday. Be Careful not greedy. There is no such thing as free money without consequence.
