to Recipients


Dear Beneficiary,

I am Steven T. Mnuchin, Secretary of the Treasury under the U.S. Department of the Treasury. You can get more details about me here;

http://www.treasury.gov/about/Pages/Secretary.aspx

At the recently concluded meeting with the World Bank and the United Nations, an agreement was reached between both parties for us to settle all outstanding payments accrued to individuals/corporations with respect to local and overseas contract payment, debt re-scheduling and outstanding compensation payment. Fortunately, you have been selected alongside a few other beneficiaries to receive your own payment of $1.5million (One Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars only).

We have been notified that you are yet to receive your fund valued at $1.5million. This money will now be transferred to your nominated bank account.

You are advised to kindly reply this email with the below details enclosed to help us process your payment;

(1) Full Names:
(2) Residential Address:
(3) Country of Residence:
(4) Age:
(5) Phone/Cell Number:
(6) Occupation:



Looking forward to hearing from you and God Bless America.

Yours faithfully,

Steven T. Mnuchin
Secretary of the Treasury
(U.S. Department of the Treasury)

Yeah, good luck with that last part...

Here's confirmation of its fraudulence, not that I needed it:

Slightly different, but essentially the same. And what on Earth would the United Nations ever have to do with it? I ask you.

Anyway, be careful out there.

James Veitch stole his whole act from these guys. They've pulled some amzing cons on the scammers.

Man. I imagine you must have at least 5,000 whistles now. Nothing to get in the way of your WAD. 8)

Oh, I'll keep it a secret. You'll think I'm still the same old poor-as-a-churchmouse Nano.

Sigh. And I was so looking forward to lunching with Mnuchin...

That's because you haven't hooked their chicken wire to 220 VAC.

Ehhh...no. Not a project for me. I'd end up doing my hair first, and that's already a disaster as it is.

What's so strange is that some people actually fall for this. And some even if they've been burned once already. Some otherwise intelligent people insist that it can't possibly be a scam.
