SCAMMING QUA SCAMMING


Harry A. Butkrak's latest escapade features a minister in the Government of South Africa, who is not a minister and quite possibly not South African either. [But you knew that!]

Harry was last seen in DEAD MEN DON'T TALK and is also the hero of 21 GRAMS.


The Cast:

Ms Hendrietta Ipeleng Bogopane-Zulu - Deputy Minister of Public Works, South African Government
Mr Robert Smith - Credit Control Manager, Standard Bank, South Africa
versus
Harry Ares Butkrak - high-flying entrepreneur. Annoyed at not having his questions answered

A few phrases are highlighted here and there for the benefit of the scam-o-challenged.

DEPUTY MINISTER OF PUBLIC WORKS
SOUTH AFRICA
TEL: +27-71-338-520
E-mail: hendzupwx.zu@gmail.com

Hello,
Firstly, let me start by introducing my self as MRS. HENDRIETTA IPELENG BOGOPANEZULU, I am visually impaired, Widow, a mother of three children and the Deputy Minister of Public Works from 11th May 2009 under the auspices of the new President of South Africa Mr. JACOB ZUMA.
After the swearing in ceremony of 1999 making me the chairperson of Parliamentary Joint Monitoring Committee, a lot of government contracts were awarded to my late husband with my influence, this actually paved way to our success, my late husband died while he was on an official trip to Trinidad and Tobago in 2004.you can view my profile at the Government website www.gov.za click on, Contact Information, then click on Deputy Ministries, and click on public works, click on my name Ms Hendrietta Ipeleng Bogopane- Zulu and read about me.
After his death, I discovered that he had some funds in a dollar account which amounted to the sum of US$30.5M with a security and finance institution here in South Africa of which I will divulge information to you when I get your full consent and support to go for a change of beneficiary and subsequent transfer of the funds into your comfortable and conducive account of your choice.
I will see to it that the account is not traced from South Africa. As soon as you have confirmed the fund into your account, I will send my eldest son with my Attorney to come to your country to discuss on business investments. For your assistance, I am offering you 20% of the principal sum which amounts to US$6,100.000.00 (Six million One Hundred Thousand United States Dollars Only) However, you have to assure me and also be ready to go into agreement with me that you will not elope with my fund. If you agree to my terms, kindly as a matter of urgency send me an email.
Due to my sensitive position in the South African Government. You Reserve the right to decline the offer ,if found not comfortable with your principle as BEING QUA BEING.

We didn't know what BEING QUA BEING was, either. Specifically the QUA.
QUA is Latin, it seems to mean with respect to, or so far as, or in the aspect of. Or maybe 'in the sense of'. Don't take Scamorama's word for it. Anyway, we seem to have a philosophical scammer on our hands, or a scammer who cribs from web pages about philosophy. And now back to our scambait.

PLEASE DO NOT CALL ON THE OFFICE LINE, BECAUSE OF THE SENSITIVITY OF THIS TRANSACTION EXCEPT OF THE ABOVE DIRECT LINE.
I prefer you send me email than call. All correspondence must be by email to any of my private e-mail addresses: hendzupwx.zu@gmail.com
Thanks for your anticipated co-operation and my regards to your family.
Yours
Faithfully,

Not only is the passport a bad fake, but the photo breaks all regulations about passport photos now. After some very easy research on the SA Govt website, I find it is directly lifted from the real Mrs Zulu's profile page.

HARRY BUTKRAK

Dear Hendrietta

Thank you for sending me your passport. Recent legislation in Australia forbids the scanning and emailing of passports. However it doesn't stop me sending you a scan of my driving licence, which is attached. The transaction will be safe in my hands until you are in a position to reclaim it. I am looking forward to the prospect of hosting your son over here. Do you have a photo of him?

As I said in my last email I am more than happy, capable and trustworthy enough to handle your business with the utmost discretion. I thank you that you have chosen me to handle this delicate matter and know that we will both benefit greatly from the mutual understanding and cooperation that our endeavours will bring us. Once you transfer the funds to me, they will stay in an account untouched until your son comes here to conduct his side of the business.

Butkrak Enterprises are in the garment making business. We mass produce and supply clothing, mostly for political campaigns. One of our recent successful products was a range of red shirts that sold in their millions in Thailand. A few years ago we struggled to keep up with the demand for our "Yes We Can" range. At the moment our most popular line is the "Julia Gillard is a ratbag" t-shirt.

Please do explain more about the transaction. As you said in your last email, I prefer you send email rather than call. I prefer that too. My mobile phone is attended to by my secretary at all times on my behalf. I don't want her getting wind of this or she'll want a cut. So as you said, email is the better option.

My:Dear.Brother:Harry Butkrak,

Thanks very very much for your mail and I wish to acknowledge the receipt of your Email massage, and do wish to express my gratitude and happiness on the interest indicated by you to assist me in this transfer of the fund for investment opportunity in your country which you will be compensated with 20% of the total fund. Well, this transaction is 100%risk free and will favor me and you if we work hand in hand.All I need from you is honest and transparency.

Furthermore, the reason why I contacted you is because I want you to assist me to transfer this fund to your account in your country for investment.

I want you to know also that I intend leaving everything regarding the investment of this funds in your country because I believe that you understand the terrain better than me, and you have much experience in business.

Moreover, I want to let you know that I have met with my Banker here. He has accepted to help us obtain the necessary transfer documents required to affect the transfer into your overseas account with out any hitch.

He wants to talk to you, so please I would like you to phone or email the banker,

Scam-o-note: So far, standard Lad operating procedure. "Robert Smith" is the closer, who will try to convince Harry to send money. Any takings will be shared according to a 'sharing percentage'.

Thanks very very much for your mail,i know that God sent you to help me in this transfer,I am very pleased with your quick response to the email i sent to you and that made me to believe in you that i can at last be assure that you are with me in this transaction.

Meanwhile i had a meeting with Mr.Robert Smith , this morning as he invited me to inform me about the possible way to transfer this money with out much delay or complications, and after the meeting we agreed that i have to secure a court order that will enable the smooth transfer to your account.

Furthermore i found out today that to obtain these documents it will cost me some money which i do not know how much it will be until i consult with the court tomorrow morning.

But any way i am very ready to offset the bill at present since it is the only way forward to ensure that we both finally achieved the reason of our knowing each other.

I would like you to call Mr.Robert Smith to inform him that you have instructed me to take care of this situation and you should make him understand that he is going to benefit from us as soon as the transfer is completed,try and send him your full bank details for him to proceed immedaitely.

Thank you for your kindness and i send my love to you and your family.

My:Dear:Brothr:Harry Butkrak,

Thanks very very much for your mail ,i know that God sent you to help me and my family in this transfer,I wish to inform you that I have paid for the affidavit of the fund as the Banker demands; this was done this morning by my lawyer Barr. Williams, I spent US$26,500.00, for the affidavit and US$30,500.00 for the Insurance Coverage of the fund as the Banker also demands.

Usually they come straight out and ask you to front the 'costs' of the 'documents'. But be assured, 'costs' will arise.

It was not easy to raise such money, as a matter of fact, as I was running around to see who can borrow me this money to complete the little one I have, But as God may have it I succeeded.

So please do comply strictly with the Banker (Mr.Smith ) to avoid any delays, I am praying that this fund will be in your account early next week.

Please note: That as soon as the money is transferred, I will send you an account for you to send some money back to me to arrange my self to come over to your country and settle my debts here, because I have borrowed allot.

Please always be begetting me informed on the recent development with the bank.

I also will advice you to be disturbing the Banker from your side as you know the Fund now belongs to you, it is more reasonable you show them some sign of seriousness by calling them on phone regular to know the recent development.

Please,try and send him your full banking details and call him on phone so that he will proceed immedaitely with the transfer file.

I will like you to call me today on phone for a brief discussion on +27-71-325-6287,

I send my love to you and your family.

One love keep us.

I have emailed Mr Smith at the bank with the form he supplied. I am at the moment on business in northern Thailand, Khon Kaen to be exact. I will be back in Australia mid week. I will let you know when I hear back from Mr Smith. As you are planning to come to Australia as soon as the funds clear and I transfer some back to you, I assume you are also arranging a visa. If you arrive in Australia without one, they won't let you in. We have very strict border controls. Good wishes to you and your family.

I have had another request for my bank account information from Mr Smith. First a form then an email wanting the information again. I think he needs to get his forms right to start with so he doesn't have to ask for the same information twice. He said he has lodged forms with the High Court so I guess you will have to wait for news from him

I will be delayed in Thailand for another week so. But I am easily contactable via email. The mobile reception in the north is practically non existent.

My:Dear:Brother:Harry Butkrak ,

Thanks for your email, I am even grateful to God that we were able to come to the conclusion of this transaction, I fact I can't wait to meet you in Australia.

Having come to the end of this transaction, please I think it is high-time you start negotiating on a good and lucrative business I can invest, as you know I am not good in business so I am relying solely on you for guidance. I have particular interest on buying a Landed Property (Building) at a very good site. Please negotiate this and make every arrangement before I come over.

I have started working on my VISA to Australia, I had an appointment with the Australia Embassy here in Pretoria and I was told to report back on Wednesday.

Please as soon as you confirm the money in your account early nest week, you have to send to me some money the sum of US$100,000.00 (One Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) this will enable me arrange my self and settle some debts here, you know what I mean.

So find the attached copies of the two documents and please ,signed the changing of ownership below in your name and send it back to me for your transfer file.

I am waiting for the inssurance copy to obtain the inssurance certificate so that i will send it to you as well and as soon as i received this certificate i will effect the transfer without any delay.

and i will like you to call me very urgent as soon as you receive this mail.

It seems the High Court of South Africa can only afford a clip art image for its logo

HARRY BUTKRAK

Dear Mr Smith

Thank you for your advice regarding the documentation and transfer. It is late evening here and the business centre is closed so I will not be able to print out the form, scan it and email it to you until tomorrow.

One thing puzzles me. You keep requesting in all your emails that I phone you as a matter of urgency. Why? Firstly you have given me no indication of what you need to chat about that is so urgent. Secondly what can you say to me on the phone that you can't tell me in an email. Thirdly I have explained a couple of times now that I am in northern Thailand this week. You make no acknowledgement of this fact and just keep repeating the same sentence in your emails. I have explained that I have no mobile coverage here and I am certainly not prepared to pay hotel rates for making an international phone call. That would just not be good business acumen.

Please stop repeating sentences to me in an email when in as many keystrokes you could have asked your questions by now.

HARRY BUTKRAK

It's not hard to do a bit of research and find out a bit about who they claim to be

Dear Hendrietta

I am certain we can find a lucrative property contract for you to invest in over here. At the moment Australia is in election mode. One issue that is taking centre stage by all sides is how to cope with the increasing number of boats arriving uninvited. The Liberals (right wing ragamuffins) want to reopen the offshore processing centre in Nauru. The Labor Party (left wing layabouts) want to build a new one in East Timor. Whatever the outcome of the election, there will be a lot of money to be made from investing in Nissan huts and Portakabins. I think this may be the way forward.

If this does not suit you then there is always the proposed upgrade to the Sydney Opera House, also another contentious election issue. You may be familiar with the building, a large performing arts centre on the harbour that resembles white sails on a boat. The plan is to locate a theme park in the land around it, with the world's largest rollercoaster. The tracks of the rollercoaster will run up and down and across the sails. The contentious issue is that the darlings of the opera world will have their performances interrupted every 3-4 minutes by the screams of the theme park riders above. Investors are being called for soon.

You say you are "not good in business". I am sure you must be, to rise to the position of Deputy Minister of Public Works in your government. They would not give that job to just anyone. Plus you have the experience of all the committees and councils you work on. I am pleased to hear you have been to the embassy to get your visa processed. Are you planning to announce your resignation from parliament and departure from South Africa or are you just going to leave without telling anyone? What will the people of the Tshwane East Branch have to say about that. Very daring of you!

As soon as I hear from Mr Smith that the transfer has gone though I will arrange to send you what you require for you know what. All my best to you and your family.

You do not have to worry, there will be no betrayal from me. I have received the forms from Mr Smith. I suppose his bank sends them to mine to make the transfer happen. As soon as I know that the funds have appeared in my account I will call you to make arrangements to transfer the funds to you that you need. I trust all will go well at the Embassy. I assume you know where you are booking a flight to in Australia. You haven't asked.

I fly back to Australia on Sunday. So on Monday morning I will go to my bank and check that the transfer has happened and all being well, will be in touch.

I have just arrived back in Australia. I checked online this morning and there was no evidence of any transfer in of a large amount of funds. However, I have an appointment with my account manager at the bank later today and will get him to check that everything is in order. I will also ask his opinion of good building project investments for you.

Attn:Harry Butkrak,

Attached is a copy of fax i received from citibank NY regerding your fund , that we need to clear the fund from USA PATRIOT Act/ANTI-TERRORS and get the form and send it to them before they will release the fund into your account immedaitely,

call me once you received this mail so that i will let you know how to get this USA PATRIOT Act/ANTI-TERRORS form and send it to citibak for the completion of the transfer to your account.

What? Another crap form to fill out. Harry is getting annoyed!

HARRY BUTKRAK

Dear Mr Smith

So why didn't you know that the funds would have to be cleared through Citibank in the US first? Why are the funds being sent through the US anyway? You could have saved me the trouble of spending the morning with my account manager at the Bank of Queensland trying to find a transaction coming from Standard Bank. I wouldn't take this alleged fax from Citibank at face value, it's written in appalling English. If I were you, representing Ms Zulu's best interests, I would do some investigating first around this notice apparently from Citibank before we go to any effort filling out more forms and replying to them.

Or would you like my account manager to ring Mr Schoenfeld at Citibank and find out what's going on?

Sincerely
Harry Butkrak
Butkrak Enterprises

I fill out and attach their form. Attachement AppForm442F

HARRY BUTKRAK

Dear Hendrietta

As you may have heard by now, the ineptitude of Mr Smith has meant that the transfer of the funds has been held up by a bank in the US. I don't know why he couldn't organise it directly between South Africa and Australia. I was with my bank account manager for 4 hours this morning trying to trace the transaction with him. Mr Smith could have saved us the time and effort. I have asked him to have your best interests at heart as he tries to sort out this mess that he could have avoided.

On the building investment front I thought you might be interested in this http://sydneyarchitecture.com/?p=1083 high end retail construction in Sydney. Return rates for dollar per square metre in Sydney retail and commercial properties are some of the highest in the world. Any investment in this area will give you an exceptional return.

Hopefully we will have some good news very soon when Mr Smith gets his act together.

Dear Hendrietta

Now now my dear there's no need for hysterics. As I said in my last email Mr Smith failed in his duty of full disclosure by not informing us that the funds would be channelled through the US first. I am afraid I am up to my eyeballs in work at the moment, so it might be best if you phone him directly and find out what he is up to. I assumed you had already spoken to him because you told me that the document was from Citibank.

I urge you to calm your nerves and phone Mr Smith without delay. He is the one with all the answers. Not that I get any of them.

Sincerely
Harry Butkrak

HARRY BUTKRAK

Dear Mr Smith

Once again you do not answer my questions. Please re-read my last email and kindly address the questions I asked. And exactly what 'office' in Johannesburg have you consulted about this piece of US legislation? When you have answered my questions I will then consider what action to take regarding their requested fee.

Also as previously requested of you, please stop using the CC to email me as well because I receive every email from you twice.

HARRY BUTKRAK

Dear Hendrietta

Really my dear this is all a bit over dramatic. I have only an interest in making this whole transaction pan out in the manner in which it should give maximum benefit. So there is no need to worry. Mr Smith has been in touch about the fee and I will make arrangements with him.
ROBERT SMITH

Excellent, I'm pissing him off.

Attn:Harry Butkrak,

Listen to me Mr. Citibank NY is our corresponding bank once we do transfer of USD.

If you like, advise your account manager to speak with Citibank, it will not change anything,

Citibank need this fund to be clear from USA PATRIOT Act/ANTI-TERRORS office here and forward the form to them before they will release your fund.

Thank you.

Kind regards,

Mr. Robert Smith, etc.

HARRY BUTKRAK

Mr Smith

You are representing the interests of a minister of the government of South Africa and it would do you well to remember that. You still have not explained exactly what this 'office' is that you have been dealing with. There is no office of people in Johannesburg administering a piece of United States domestic legislation. That is not logical. There is probably an office of Citibank there or it may be the US embassy. But not an office of the Patriot Act.

However, as I wish to expedite this manner please forward the Citibank account details for the transfer of their fee.

ROBERT SMITH

Sir, I have been working with standard bank for 19yes of my life, I know very well about banking,

Am sorry not to clear the fund from ANTI-TERRORIST CERTIFICATE / DRUG, the USA PATRIOT Act /ANTI-TERRORS CLEARANCE FORM is the same as ANTI-TERRORIST CERTIFICATE / DRUG,

We have the office here in South Africa Pretoria , the Citibank of new York need us to clear the fund with the south Africa USA PATRIOT Act /ANTI-TERRORS as ANTI-TERRORIST CERTIFICATE / DRUG here in south Africa and get the form and send to them for them to release the fund into your account in Australia ,

If you want to help Ms.Hendrietta gets this clearance document and sends it to Citibank of new for them to complete the transfer to your account,

Advise so that I will send you our bank account details where you will send the money so that I will get the fee paid and get the document and send it to Citibank of new York for the completion of the transfer to your account.

Thank you.

Kind regards,

Mr. Robert Smith, etc.

HARRY BUTKRAK

Dear Mr Smith

Now everything is clear and concise. Thank you for explaining the situation in such detail. As previously requested please forward the relevant account details for the transfer of the fee in order to get the transaction moving again.

MS. HENDRIETTA IPELENG BOGOPANE-ZULU

If "Mr. Smith" doesn't collect from Harry, then "Mrs Zulu" won't get her cut. So it's time for the heavy artillery - the Almighty.

My Dear: Brother: Mr. Harry Butkrak,

How are you and your family today? hope all is well,My Dear, I understand that the few bad people in this world have spoilt image of the good ones. Well, please forget about the past. and God knows that I am confuse now, I have tried my very best to see it this far and only God will see me through, my dear I know that the problem you have is not you helping me with the money,

But the problem is that you are afraid that if you help me with the money, are you going to get your money back,

But in every Endeavour in life there is a principle and also pattern, so also in the spiritual realm. There are certain principles to bring down the hand of God.

I made a promise to God that after this business I will set out a certain percent to give to charity, so I know that my transaction will be successful. I have no fear but faith.

Dear, you know that the bible said in HEBREWS -11-6 but without faith it is impossible to please him (GOD) for he that cometh to GOD must believe that he is ,and that he is a rewarded of them that diligently seek him.

I really want to let you know that no matter any condition, God sent you to help me and my family in this transfer. This transaction,

Try and help your sister with this last fee so that by the end of tomorrow , i will hear from you that the fund is in your account,

let me know once you send the money to him and i send my love to you and your family.

One love keep us.

HARRY BUTKRAK

So let's do a bit of Bible quote searching. And what do you know, a chapter numbered 4-19 suits the bill!

Dear Hendrietta

Now that's better isn't it, back to your old self again. I am not afraid to help you or afraid of losing money or getting it back. That is nothing that I am concerned about. My only concern was about the professionalism and attitude of Mr Smith and that your best interests were being attended to. Unfortunately we come across many bankers in our lives and we have to grin and bear it. Robert Smith claims to have been in the business for 19 years. Confidentially, between you and me, I don't know how he lasted that long or rose to his current position. Someone in his job needs to pay attention to the details and he has missed on that score. If he was working in Australia I doubt whether he would have lasted that long.

But he is the person we have to deal with so we must make the best of the situation. I have again requested that he send me the details of the account where I have to transfer the Patriot-Terrorist fee.

I did know that it said that in Hebrews 11-6. Then you must also know that it says in Psalms 41-9 "Even my close friend, whom I trusted, he who shared my bread, has lifted up his heel against me".

I think that may sum up our friend Mr Smith. Well I have to fly back to Thailand in the morning. Lovely country, Buddhist you may know. You couldn't wish for a more pleasant people to deal with. Despite their rudimentary telephone system I have 21st century technology and am in constant contact via the internet. So when the bank account details come through to me I will be able to deal with them immediately.

ROBERT SMITH

Kind regards, Mr. Robert Smith

That will be because the phone number I gave you was for the Australian Federal Police. And he now uses the correct word.

HARRY BUTKRAK

Bob Katter is a redneck politician in the Australian Federal Parliament

Dear Mr Smith

I am surprised that the fee hasn't transferred yet. Has your bank contacted my Bank of Queensland branch to discuss it? I think that would be the next logical step. If they ring the branch they need to speak to Mr Bob Katter.

As far as I am aware the money has left my account and should be somewhere in their system. I was told by my account manager that the TWATS transfer document does not require a stamp of any kind, it is just a straightforward transaction notice.

Because my PA and I are out of the country quite often I use a professional answering service. Unfortunately they are not as professional as they should be. Speaking of which, I am leaving again in a few hours for Thailand. Keep me posted on what your bank comes up with.

Sincerely
Harry Butkrak

HARRY BUTKRAK

Dear Hendrietta

Is Mr Smith keeping you updated on the progress of the fee transfer? I made all the arrangements at my bank and sent him the paperwork. He seems to think that the money has not been transferred yet. I don't understand what could be holding it up because the money has certainly been paid.

Has your Australian Visa been granted yet?

Sincerely
Harry Butkrak
Butkrak Enterprises

MS. HENDRIETTA IPELENG BOGOPANE-ZULU
My:Dear:Brother:Harry Butkrak,

Yes, my good brother, Mr. Smith told me that you have sent him the money and I told myself that I will only write to you once he confirm with me that everything is completed ,

Well, my dear, I don't have anything to say now until we see one on one.

Is only my good God will bless you for me and I know that you are sent by God to help me with this.

I will go back for my Australian Visa on Tuesday and will let you know once I have it in my passport.

I will like to speak with you on phone please, try and call me from your side or give me any number that I will get you on line with.

I need to speak with you and hear your voice.

HARRY BUTKRAK

Dear Mrs Zulu

As mentioned I am in Thailand again for a week or so. I have no mobile reception here. And just my luck, I've got a case of laryngitis now as well, so I'm not speaking to anyone. Surely we can discuss via email. What has been going on, has Mr Smith got his bank to get in touch with my bank yet? My bank said the money has left my account but is sitting in limbo because the accepting bank isn't doing anything about it.

Mr Smith works at the bank, surely he knows about this and could move things along?
HARRY BUTKRAK

Dear Mr Smith

It has been a week now since your last email. I would like to be kept up to date in what is going on with the transfer of my payment to your bank. This is far too long to be waiting for any message from you. My account manager says the $8,100 fee has been paid and is waiting to be confirmed as receipted by your bank. Do banks in South Africa know how to process international transactions or not? In the last four days I have had 7 transactions to and from banks in Thailand to my Australian bank account. So what on earth is going on over there?

HARRY BUTKRAK

A master class in scambaiting. Let the 'small boy' think the 'closer' has cut him out. Of course this only works if the closer is elsewhere - sometimes the scammer 'team members' never meet. Sometimes they are one and the same, which makes this funny in a different way.

Dear Mrs Zulu

I am doing some wonderful business in Thailand this week, but without the use of my voice my PA is having to do most of the work for me. Unfortunately she has a broad accent and sounds like Lindy Chamberlain whingeing away at the base of Ayers Rock. But she assures me that a dingo never made off with her new born.

I have just written yet again to Mr Smith to find out what is going on. There has been no contact from him for 7 days now and I am worried that he has pocketed the $8,100 for himself and we will never hear from him again. But I live in hope that he is actually a decent man and would not do such a thing to you. Please let me know if you have heard from him. Have you got your visa yet? What plans have you made for booking a flight to Sydney?
ROBERT SMITH

Attn: Harry Butkrak ,

We have via through our standard bank central system no transfer from your bank in Australia to us,

sorry, i tried to contact you via phone i can not, call me if you still need my help.

Thank you.

REGARDS.

Mr.Robert Smith
HARRY BUTKRAK

Dear Mr Smith

The reason you could not contact on the phone is because, as I informed you, I am in Thailand again this week. If you would actually read my communication you would be aware of this.

I am not sure I understand the implications of your statement 'call me if you still need my help.' Are you no longer representing Mrs Zulu with this transaction? Why would I need your help? All I require of you is to get your bank, Citibank, the local office of the US department of domestic legislation enforced internationally to do some work rather than sit back and expect money to fall in to your lap. What exactly has Standard Bank done to trace this transaction? I informed you that my bank says the money has been paid. What have you done to verify or trace this? There we go, a number of questions. Will they ever be answered?

Sincerely
Harry Butkrak
Butkrak Enterprises

My questions are never answered as that is the last I hear from them
