Mr John Michael - 419 once in a while

How weird. Mr Businessman who is now emailing me that he has stored my $ 750,000 that are ready for me .. is 1) using a hotmail address, not his work address, 2) my name is not in the To : field .. last time I checked my name wasn't "undisclosed-recipients", and 3) for some reason, the work email's spam filters didn't catch this. Oh, and his secretary has a email address instead of a professional one. Or is it maybe that the only time I have ever seen anyone use any email address is for professional African scammers?

Dear Friend,

I'm happy to inform you about my success in getting those Funds transferred under the cooperation of a new partner from Trinidad and Tobago. Presently I'm in Switzerland for investment Projects with my own share of the total sum. Meanwhile, I didn't forget your past efforts and attempts to assist me in transferring those funds despite that it failed us some how.

Now contact my confidential secretary, his name is Mr. George Okoye on this e-mail address:- ask him to send you the total of USD$750,000.00 which I kept for your compensation for all the past efforts and attempts to assist me in this matter in the past. I appreciated your efforts at that time very much. So feel free and get in touch with my secretary Mr. George Okoye and instruct him where to send the amount to you.

Please do let me know immediately you receive it so that we can share the joy after all the sufferness at that time. In the moment, I am very busy here because of the Investment projects which me and the new partner are having at hand. Finally, Remember that I had forwarded instruction to the secretary on your behalf to receive that money, so feel free to get in touch with Mr. George Okoye, he will send the amount to you without any delay.

Mr. John Michael.
