Nu știu câți dintre cititorii mei sunt familiarizați cu “Scrisoarea nigeriană”. E un “scam” extrem de popular, apărut în diverse variațiuni pe aceeași temă încă de pe vremea snail-mail (poșta clasică).
În mare este vorba de o persoana fictivă (se cheamă “nigeriană” pentru că persoana se dă de obicei drept un prinț nigerian) care deține o sumă extrem de mare de bani dar care întâmpină greutăți în a scoate acea sumă de bani din țara de baștină. Și cere ajutorul unui amărât cu promisiunea de a-i lăsa acestuia în cont un procent însemnat din suma respectivă. De cele mai multe ori apar și niște hârtii care par oficiale pentru a întări afirmațiile personajului fictiv. Fraierul care pune botul este dus de nas ulterior și pus să trimită diverse sume de bani (mici în comparație cu câștigul promis) ca să “ocolească” greutățile birocratice apărute pe parcurs.
Ei, vă dați seama că există suficient de mulți proști pe lume dacă asta este una din cele mai răspândite metode de fraudă. Și cum IQ-ul mediu scade vertiginos (am mai zis eu că “Idiocracy” începe să fie din ce în ce mai mult un documentar trist), fraieri se tot găsesc.
Ultima versiune a scrisorii nigeriene m-a dat însă pe spate. Bine, mai există versiuni care ies din tiparul clasic al prințului nigerian. Dar asta este ancorată și din punct de vedere istoric în prezent și pare mult mai bine închegată. Versiunea nouă sună cam așa :
Please accept my apology if my mode of contacting you will in any way offend you. I am compelled to contact you via this medium for obvious reasons which you will understand when we discuss details of my proposal.
My name is Khamis Muammar al-Gaddafi, one of the youngest son of the late Libyian Leader Muammar Al-Gaddafi, I am a policeman by profession and a leader of a special forces brigade of the military of Libya. I am at the moment very depressed as i write to you. I got your mail from search engine and I really think you can be of help to me.
I studied military science at the Frunze Military Academy in Moscow and at the moment I am studying for a masters degree in IE Business School in Madrid, but as I write to you I am in the UK before the British government revoked the immunity given to my father (Muammar al-Gaddafi ) and his families (http://www.news-worthy.info/u-k-revoked-diplomatic-immunity-for-gaddafi-his-families/8932/), so at the moment I do not possess the right to move about, as I will be arrested and prosecuted in a international court of justice. In my possession right about now is my internet connection and my private cell phone, it is only with this two I am able to make contact with the out side world.
Also as another measure that has been taken by the international community, our asset i.e the assets of Muammar al-Gaddafi and family world wide have been frozen to compel my father to step down as the libyan leader. http://www.allvoices.com/contributed-news/8317593-us-freezes-assets-of-alqadhafi-and-four-of-his-sons .
The above mentioned reasons are what have compelled me to write you this mail, As I seek to partner with a trustworthy person who can assist me in transferring some of my monetary assets worth about (GBP) 145m (ONE HUNDRED AND FORTY-FIVE MILLION GREAT BRITISH POUNDS). This money has been lodged in a bank account in the Uk and as things are shaping now this money is likely to be discovered soon, so i seek your assistance in helping me transfer this money into your account so that it is not discovered. i am ready to offer as much as 50percent of this money to you if you render to assist in transferring this money and the money is transferred successfully.
If you are interested in assisting me, write me a reply on:

Nu m-aș fi așteptat să apuci să citești și asemenea mailuri :) Eu le șterg din prima.

Trebuie sa apreciezi faptul ca sunt politicoase si elaborate :)

Eu recent am primit doar o groaza de mesaje de la “Fun Girl”, toate cu acelasi text si aceeasi poza. Nimic memorabil. Nici macar ceva legat de “V1agra” sau “traditionala” marire de penis.
Dar macar stiu ca lumea tepelor online nu e intrat in declin si am la ce sa “sper” pe viitor. :))
