This phishing attempt actually asks that you call them… It came from Maxwell Ubanko at firstname.lastname@example.org and requests that you help them with their 26 million US dollars. The whole scam is designed to obtain your personal information.
Like many of the other scams, this one requests that you not talk about it or mention money on the phone; it’s a request designed to keep others from sharing the same email and discovering it’s a scam which is listed below:
Please Permission from Mr. & Mrs. Maxwell Ubanko
We are from the capital city Harare in ZIMBABWE. We are married couple; we are now in the Netherlands political asylum camp, for about four years now. We got your contact address through world business directory we ask you to forgive us for contacting you though we did not know you before but it is the only we can reach our goal, and although internet is turned to criminal activities by some people it is still the best private communication system of which I, Maxwell Ubanko, know.
We are requesting from you for family assistant to help us receive our Business Funds total value the sums of TWENTY- SIX MILLION UNITED STATES DOLLARS. This is our family inheritance business funds after the death of my Father Mr. Ubanko Haduka. We move to the Netherlands through help of a good Journalist to seek for political asylum and we were hoping that we will have freedom and be able to start our personal investment.
We are sorry to tell you that after three year and this is the fourth year now the Netherlands government deliberately refused us permanent resident permit. We applied to this permanent resident permit they denied us and we are no longer comfortable with the system in the Netherlands as we are now indirectly under enslavement.
Our major reason for contacting your through the email is that it is so confidential regarding the funds, the government may be interested to know how My family acquired the fund, but it well arranged and lodged into a private company with high collateral here in the Netherlands since three years now the government did not know about the money most especially the political asylum authority they are eager to know your state of life and value.
We had went through pains here hoping that we will reach peace and found permanent resident permit but every report is the same every year.
I, Maxwell Ubanko, have reach an agreement with my wife to move out of Netherlands immediately we are able to secure our properties abroad. We need to know the state of your mind to help us as good beneficiary to enable the private company transfer this funds to your name and address in your country for security under your care.
We are afraid to discus this on the telephone for this moment as we are just negotiation in secret but after a good understanding we shall talk about it through the telephone conversation. We will show to you an appreciation for your good heart, and your co-operate with us and keep this secret for security reason.
Our private mail: email@example.com
Mr. & Mrs. Maxwell Ubanko
