The Spam Report: Day #4: "Moving Funds"
So for years, I've always had a rule when it comes to moving. I will help friends move furniture, clothes, beds, mountains, you name it, as long as I can get some pizza in exchange. I'm not that particular about my pizza, meaning I like it all, from frozen to fancy.
Even as my back has grown balky, I've helped folks move. However, the one thing I will never help anyone move is money. That's the stuff of a John Grisham novel and if you enter this kind of transaction, it's basically going to lead to something bad happening. Kind of like what my dad always told us growing up would happen after midnight and if you weren't really careful, with mixed drinks.
So, without further ado, I caution you to please not fall for this.

From: Mr. Harrison Izualor,
I am the manager of billings and exchange at the foreign remittance department of La Caixa Bank, Madrid - Spain. There is a friend of mine (Mr. Peter Brehovsky) whom I assisted in moving out his fund from my bank to his designated bank in Russia. He now decided to appreciate my effort in moving out his funding without any eyebrow from the authority.
This appreciation token is in the tune of $12,500,000.00 USD (Twelve Million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars) and it is deposited in la caixa escrow account This fund has been left in la caixa escrow account since 6 months now waiting for an instruction from Mr. Brehovsky for the fund to be released.
According to my arrangement with him, whenever I am set to move out the fund to any bank of my choice, He is willing to instruct my bank for onward transfer to the specified bank account. My purpose of contacting you is to enable me use your bank account to move out this fund just as I did it for my friend. I cannot do it alone. Due to the fact that I work in this bank Hence, I contacted you so we could do the transaction together.
If you are interested in this deal, let me know on your return mail so that I will give you more details on the transfer and our sharing mode.
Please get back to me as soon as possible on firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks Mr. Harrison Izualor
