Der Nigerianer aus Afghanistan

Die Spam-Mails mit den Vorschlägen aus Nigeria sind ja schon legendär: Der wohlmeinende Herr aus Lagos, der ein großes, herrenloses Vermögen unterbringen muss und nur eine kleine Hilfe aus Europa braucht, um das viele Geld auf ein Konto zu transferieren. Jetzt haben die Abzocker den Afghanistan-Einsatz entdeckt. Heute in meinem Spam-Ordner:

Dear Friend,
Pardon my intrusion; my name is Lieutenant Andrew Ferrara, presently I’m on active duty in Afghanistan. Please, I have an obscured business proposal that will be of mutual benefit to both of us.
Few days ago, my colleagues and I intercepted a radical Taliban courier responsible for the transportation of huge amount of funds and on this unfortunate incident, we rounded up a total of US$11,5 Million United States Dollars.
After detailed discussion with my platoon, we came to a conclusion that if the funds are handed over to the Afghan Police, there is the possibility that the funds will be confiscated for their personal consumption. Therefore, it was my duty to find a partner whom will receive this fund for the benefit of us all.
With all due humility, I want you to be our partner in receiving this funds. The funds will be moved out of this country through a air cargo transport means and all you are required to do is receive the funds and an account will be provided to you, which you will use in transferring our share.
Sir, our word is our life, I personally assure you that this fund has been carefully contained and there is no need to worry about the source as we will not do anything that will bring problems to you or traced back to us.
For your honest participation in this deal, we are ready to divide the funds into three equal parts, one third will be for you, one third will be sent to my Late Brother’s young family, details will be provided to you as time goes on.

Es wäre ja einfach nur lächerlich, wenn dieser schräge Vorschlag nicht auch noch mit einem realen Namen verbunden wäre: Der angebliche Wohltäter gibt sich als Bruder eines gefallenen US-Soldaten aus. Das ist dann doch ein wenig arg dick aufgetragen.
