Hilarious scam attempt

I received the following in my spam box in my e-mail account. I had to laugh my ass off at it. Note the caps lock (to show urgency, I’m sure), the UN mention at the end (which isn’t even aware of my existence), the spelling errors, and my favorite: The fictitious country. Gotta love ’em.

ATTN: RE-CHANGE OF ACCOUNT,

THIS IS IN REGARD TO OUTSTANDING PAYMENT, I AM DR.PHIL WILSON; THE NEWLY APPOINTED DIRECTOR UNITED NATIONS; LEGAL AFFAIRS, SECURITY AND INVESTIGATION, THE SECRETARY-GENERAL BAN KI-MOON AND HIS DECISION MAKING BODY, HAS DIRECTED ME TO INVESTIGATE YOUR FUND AND TO MAKE SURE THAT WE APPROVE ALL OUTSTANDING DEBTS OWNED TO FOREIGN BENEFICIARIES BY THE GOVERNMENT OF NIGERIA/BRITISH IN THIS 3 QUARTER OF THIS FISCAL

YEAR 2012.

THIS DECISION WAS TAKEN BASED ON THE ANOMALIES AND INABILITY OF THE BANKS IN NIGERIA/LONDON TO RELEASE YOUR FUND INTO YOUR BANK ACCOUNT;WHEREBY IT WAS DISCOVERED THAT SOME DIRECTORS IN THESE BANKS WERE DIVERTING FOREIGN BENEFICIARIES PAYMENT TO ANOTHER ACCOUNT OF THEIR CHOICE OVERSEAS. IN VIEW OF THIS, DURING OUR INVESTIGATION I FOUND OUT THAT; AN ACCOUNT WAS SUBMITTED TO DIVERT YOUR FUND TO A GERMANY ACCOUNT. BELOW IS THE ACCOUNT SUBMITTED AND I WANT YOU TO CONFIRM IF YOU ARE AWARE OF THE NEW DEVELOPMENT BECAUSE WE ARE ABOUT EFFECTING PAYMENT TO THE ACCOUNT STATED BELLOW TODAY.

BENEFICIARY: CERSTIN WENGER SHENOUDA.

BANK: FRANKFURTER BANK

A/C NO.: 367840545

SWIFT CODE: 50050201

FINALLY, BE INFORMED THAT A PAYMENT INSTRUCTION HAS BEEN ISSUED AND FORWARDED TO THE TREASURY DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERNATIONAL MONITORY FUND IN FAVOR FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE OF YOUR FUND TO THE ACCOUNT ABOVEWITHOUT ANY FURTHER PREJUDICE. BUT THERE IS NO WAY WE CAN APPROVE THE FUND TO YOUR ACCOUNT WITHOUT YOU CONFIRMING IF YOU HAVE CHANGED YOUR ACCOUNT FOR YOUR FUND TO BE TRANSFER TO THE BENEFICIARY: CERSTIN WENGER SHENOUDA BANK ACCOUNT IN GERMANY.

CONTACT ME IMMEDIATELY FOR FURTHER CLARIFICATION TO KNOW IF YOU HAVE GIVING INSTRUCTION TO TRANSFER YOUR FUND TO THE ABOVE ACCOUNT TODAY.ON BEHALF OF THE ENTIRE MANAGEMENT OF UNITED NATIONS, WE ARE CONGRATULATING YOU IN ADVANCE AND IF YOU FAIL TO CONTACT THIS OFFICE ON OR BEFORE 78 HRS FROM NOW THEN WE WILL NOW WIRE THE FUND TO THE GERMAN ACCOUNT.

THANKS FOR YOUR CO-OPERATION.
