I have heard of Nigerian 419 scams and have even received an e-mail from someone purporting to be from Burkina Faso with a plan to separate me from my money. The latest one is from former Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi‘s attorney with a proposition for me.
I am contacting you with good intent geared towards an interest which
I want both of us to participate in and which will be beneficial to us
My name is Bill Rahma, an investment attorney to the ousted
president of Libya, MUAMMAR GADDAFI who was killed in a gun battle in
Libya on the 20th of October 2011. I have been handling all his
financial activities and business interests up to this
I have under my management, some amount of money($4,000,000.00 USD)
which the late Gaddafi had instructed me to code for re-investment for
his grand children in an event he is caught or killed.
Governments in France, Italy, England and Germany seized control of
Late Gaddafi $30 billion, but not these one because it is
coded with a foreign surname.

I had made preparations for this fund to be re-invested and was
preparing a report for him through his special aid who was also
killed, before I heard of his death. His death has now changed the
entire scenario in the sense that all the procedures has to take a
drastic change and which is the reason I am contacting you, because
you bear the same LAST NAME as of the aid, which the money was
deposited in his name. It is therefore necessary
that we work together. Kindly read my proposal below:
1, your involvement shall entail the following:
A, provision of a safe haven for the funds.
B, management of the funds which we shall put directly under your name
or company name and total care
C, preparation of legal back-up documents to support the entire
transaction as an inheritance to you.
Furthermore, it is important to keep this transaction confidential due
to the recent forfeiture of the late Gaddafi’s assets and frozen
accounts. We are lucky because the money I am talking about is not in
his name and will make it much easier for us to handle successfully.
I am seeking for your permission to present you to the bank as a
relation to the deceased since you bear the same surname with him and
I am his attorney. You can easily make this deal with me
since nobody else knows about this deposit except me.
The entire process shall last about 2 weeks or thereabout. Upon your
full acceptance, kindly contact me with the below very important
1.YOUR TELEPHONE/MOBILE/FAX NUMBER
We shall discuss the remuneration you shall receive for your efforts.
Thank you and Best Regards,
Barrister Bill Rahma
What are the odds that one of Gaddafi’s aides had the same last name as me. Hoffman is not even remotely Arabic sounding. I guess I had better respond right away. Hoffman is a common German name, so I am sure Mr. Rahma will be able to find another one without any trouble.
