Die Nigeria-Connection hat den Sprung auf Facebook geschafft …

Gutes englisch, verbunden mit logischer Personalisierung. Wenn ich mir die Nachricht anschaue, dürfte Facebook (und andere social networks) ein Traum für die Nigeria-Connection sein:

Good day: Johannes Siemers,

This is a personal E-mail directed to you and I request that it be treated as such.
I am Barrister Thomas Anthony, a solicitor at law.
I am the personal attorney/sole executor to the late Mr Gerald Siemers, hereinafter referred to as ‘my client’ who worked as an independent oil magnate in my country and who died in a plane crash with his immediate family in February 1998.

Since the death of my client in 1998, I have written several letters to the embassy with an intent to locate any of his extended relatives whom shall be claimants/beneficiaries of his abandoned personal estate and all such efforts have been to no avail.
More-so,I have received official letters in the last few weeks suggesting a likely proceeding for confiscation of his abandoned personal assets in line with existing laws by the bank in which my client deposited a notably high amount of money.
On this note i decided to search for a credible person and finding that you bear a similar last name, I was urged to contact you, that I may,with your consent, present you to the “trustee” bank as my late client’s surviving family member so as to enable you put up a claim to the bank in that capacity as a next of kin of my client.
I find this possible for the fuller reasons that you bear a similar last name with my client making it a lot easier for you to put up a claim in that capacity.
I propose that 35% of the net sum will accrue to you at the conclusion of this deal in so far as I do not incure further expenses.

Therefore, to facilitate the immediate transfer of this funds, you need, first to contact me via my private email:thomas_288@yahoo.com for better confidentiality, signifying your interest and as soon as I obtain your confidence I will immediately appraise you with the complete details as well as fax you the documents, with which you are to proceed and i shall direct on how to put up an application to the bank.

HOWEVER, you will have to accent to an express agreement which I will forward to you in order to bind us in this transaction.
Upon the receipt of your reply,I will send you by fax or E-mail the next step to take.I will not fail to bring to your notice that this proposal is hitch-free and that you should not entertain any fears as the required arrangements have been made for the completion of this transfer.

Like I said, I require only a solemn confidentiality on this.

Best regards,
Thomas Anthony Esq.

Und es funktioniert leider. Erst kürzlich ging ein Fall durch die Presse …

Natürlich gibt es noch Verbesserungspotential. So würde es einen noch besseren Eindruck machen, wenn man das Facebook-Profil ausfüllen würde und so noch stärker den Eindruck einer real existierenden ernst zu nehmenden Person vorspielt. Ein Profilbild wäre da schon wichtig …

Ein Gedanke zu „Die Nigeria-Connection hat den Sprung auf Facebook geschafft …“

  1. Bin hier auch deiner Meinung, wenn die dort noch ein Profil einstellen, das halbwegs echt aussieht, kann wirklich viel Schaden angerichtet werden.

    Wir haben in Österreich grad ein Facebook Experiment gemacht …. 1.000 Leute wahllos angeschrieben – das Ergebnis ist faszinierend: http://www.online-marketing-blog.at/studien/das-facebook-experiment-in-osterreich/

    Glaubhaft ist es allemal und es gibt genug Leute, die dann drauf reinfallen könnten, weil die Person ja auch Freunde hat und über regelmäßige Statusmeldungen scheinbar “lebt”.
