Kofi Rich?

I was starting to write (at least in my head) a post about politics, it being election day here in the US, but I had to share this email spam I just recieved. This is of the "international money laundering" genre that I - and I'm sure many of you - receive several times a week. But the alleged senders of these emails are generally people you've never heard of, and therefore can't verify as a fake. This one, on the other hand, took a bit of research, as well as a strong dose of chutzpah! To wit:

I Dr. Kofi Annan, Secretary-General of the United Nations, would like to ask your partnership in reprofilling funds over $250m in excess, the funds would be coming via a string of selected banks in Europe and Asia.

The Funds in question were generated by me during the oil for food program in Iraq.

I have been getting scandals/ controversy in this regards, you can read more on the links below-



You would be paid 5% as your management fee. Please do not write back directly to me via my official email address. All further correspondence should be sent to my private mail box (kofiannan4un@o2.pl ). As soon as you indicate your interest I will give further details.

Remember to treat this mail and transaction as strictly confidential.

I will await your urgent correspondence via my private mail box-

Dr.Kofi Annan.
