Hello Distinguished Sir or Madam,
I hope this email reaches you in time. I would like to offer you a business proposition. I am the owner of $60B in Swiss and US bank account and would gladly offer you a fee of $1B if you will release a press statement that I am about to surrender to the rebel Transitional National Council.
However, to get the banks to release the money, I need you to forward me the transfer fees in the amount of $1MM so that the banks will transfer the money to you. Please forward this payment into my new untraceable swiss account so that I may send you the $1B payment.
h/t What Me Worry
