Oh this is very interesting as $120,000,00 is a good amount of monies and will compliment nicely the amounts of monies I have in my accounts here in Reno Nevada!

I am sorry to hear that your Dad is Dead but good to hear that your mother is an old woman 87 years of age and is living in Iceland and that they worked together in the Asian Country of Malaysia.

If I can help you move the $120,000,00 to my account that would be a very good relationship deal to do we can work together and handle these monies like brothers. Once the money is moved we can have a relationship here in Reno Nevada and have fun times gambling in the casinos here together like two brothers living in Reno Nevada! With the money we can invest in a large living space and live like kings in Reno Nevada and all others will envy us for our money and good relationship status.

Let me know how we can transfer the $120,000,00 so we can begin our relationship and have a good time gambling and drinking alcoholic beverages here in Reno Nevada!

Your Brother in Money,

The telephone number is a mobile phone in Malaysia: 60-16-347-9236.
So "Donald" has a bag man in Malaysia.
Or, maybe HE is in Malaysia - "Ms Fadli" never actually appears in this scambait.
Bag man? the gentle reader asks. Do you mean someone who picks up money? No one's asked for money!
Read on. And keep a firm hand on your wallet.

Wow this is a great deal i feel like I won the Reno lottery with this one. Money is the currency of Reno, as they say, so this will be perfect for drinking and gambling good times i look forward to you coming here and we can celebrate!!!

When will you quit the London and be coming here to live like kings? I will be sure to have a taxi pick you up from the airport, and we can go to the casinos and drink alcohol and gamble for days in Reno! The money amount of $120,000,00 is plenty to live very well here, and I want to be able to share these riches with you and enjoy the life that can be had in Reno when one is a very wealthy man!!

Let me know the plans, and I will contact the bank once I can get my information collected!

Oh my this is very good news that you are able to quit the London and go to Dubai.

To make our lifestyle even more luxurious, I will soon exchange some of the money you are transferring for gold coins so that we may have mountains of coins and even fill a large pool with them so that we may swim in wealth and truly be like kings of Money!!!

Thanks for your mail When is the bank going to transfer the fund into your bank account there in United States.and if there,s any transfer charges kindly pay for it okay take note of it thanks


Scam-o-note: gentle reader please understand that the transfer charge IS the scam. There is no "$120,000,00 One hundred and Twenty Thousand Dollars Only" to be transferred.
Ralph is to be fooled into sending a money order to cover the 'transfer charge'. If a second scammer plays "banker" and picks up the money order, "Donald" gets a "sharing percentage." If Donald works alone, he gets it all.
Or 100% of zero, because...

Ralph Ramburger

Ralph ends with the classic technique of the imaginary rival scammer.

Donald Mike,

Thank you for the information I have completed the bank transfer with the help of one Barrister Mobutu and I now have possession in the amount of $100,000,00 dollars US funds! The bank withheld $20,000,00 for a conversion fee from the foreign account the money amount was moved from but they said that was the standard amount withheld for transfers like this one so I agreed hopefully this is acceptable to you.

Thank you sir Donald Mike for the money deal, I am now be able to live like a king here in Reno Nevada, and have already been having a great time with the money I love money! I will continue to hold a room for you at the hotel for when you are done with your business in Dubai and there is a bar full of drinks for you to enjoy when you arrive!

Thank you again sir for the money, this is the best thing that has ever happened to me I am the winner of life in money!!!

Your money brother Ralph
