Dr Abdul-Malik’s Investment Opportunity

I’m well used to receiving the occasional scam email, but it was a new experience to receive not one, but two faxes from Dr Sitin Abdul-Malik, who claimed to have a wonderful investment opportunity. I ignored the first one. But then I couldn’t resist replying to the follow-up.

It read:

Dear Dr Malik

It was with interest that I read your random fax about your willingness to invest in my company which specialises in stock speculation and hospitality.

Please liaise with me by email. How much can you invest and on what terms?

Thanks

Stewie

Dear Stewie,
Thanks for your prompt response to my fax proposal with which you have showed a great sense of partnership and understanding.

Before we proceed it is very important that I properly introduce myself so that you can have a proper understanding of my needed cooperation and desired working relationship.

I am a former cabinet member of Gadaffi former ruling Arab Socialist Union Party where I rose to the post of the organizing secretary; I also served as diplomat and ambassador to the countries of Seychelles, Malawi, Central Africa Republic, Mauritius, Somalia, Lesotho and South Africa between 1986 -1999 [7 countries in 13 years?!] before retirement.

I decided to contact you because of my need of a reliable, competent and trustworthy person [or a complete stranger] that could assist and help receive my funds for safekeeping and viable investments in your country.

My country Libya is presently at war and destabilized due to the death and removal of Col Gaddafi by force by the western allied forces and all the former friends and associate of the past government are being persecuted and imprisoned by the new revolutionary government therefore we are all moving our money out of Libya.

I therefore desire your quick assistance to help receive and keep the sum of US$15.5million for profitable investments in your country in any of the sectors formerly stated.

I have agreed to give you 15% of the said money for your assistance.

It is very urgent, Please reply back to me if you are willing to go ahead and assist me in this regards.

Regards

Dr. Sitin Abdul-Malik

Dear Dr Mailk

My company is currently valued at $155m so your investment will buy you 1% of the company. Unfortunately there is no chance of a seat on the board, but we will keep you informed of proceedings via our Facebook page. My company is called Black Hole Investments Ltd.

Please let me know the next steps.

Regards

Stewie

Thanks for your prompt response.

For your information please take note that the funds cannot be transferred through the banks in Libya because I am presently in hiding and running for my dear life and my bank account has been confiscated and frozen while any financial dealings or bank transaction on my side will alert a red flag as there is lots of control by the monetary regulatory authorities in Libya at the moment.

To bypass this problems/bottleneck I have perfected plans to secretly ship the funds in cash out of the Libyan territory to your location and as i write to you the funds has already been packed and compressed into trunk boxes in $100 bill denominations and deposited into storage custody at the custom bonded warehouse in Tripoli where it has been declared as diplomatic cargo.

The movement and shipment of the funds will be carried out with the assistance and connections of a trusted UN diplomat who will be using his diplomatic status to ship the funds out of Libya as diplomatic cargo.

Be rest assured that the process is 100% secured and guaranteed and will be executed in a manner that will protect you from the breach of any local or international law what will just be required from your side is to cooperate and work together with the diplomat who will make the delivery of the cargo to your custody.

I promise if you can give me your maximum cooperation and support we can complete the transfer of the funds to your custody within 7days.

Awaiting your urgent response.

Sincerely

Dr. Abdul-Malik

Dear Dr Malik

Sounds good to me. I have a contact known as Freddie Fingers who is a professional at this type of thing. He knows Nick Leeson. He can stash the trunks in one of his garages.

What are the next steps?

Thanks

Dear Dr Malik

I am busy most days with meetings, so it is best to liaise by email. Please let me know the next steps. I am keen to arrange this as soon as possible, as I have to make a business trip to Amsterdam to purchase some plants.

Regards

Stewart

Dear Stewww

I dont think im you are the right person to handle this issue if your meeting and appointments will not allow you to have a telephone discussions about a funds transfer deal worth $15.5 million.

Its very absurd think about this ???? [why, do you think I’m trying to scam you?]

Dear Dr Mailk

I am just the right person. I have much experience of dealing with large sums of money in cash. I can give you references to show that I am trustworthy. I check emails on my iPhone, so it is the best way to keep in contact.

Plus I have an unfortunate speech impediment, due to suffering from mild Tourette’s syndrome, which means that I can’t talk without verbal tics interupting the conversation. You may think it’s funny, but I keep saying ‘Nutjob’, ‘Mickey Mouse is a terrorist’, and ‘Show me the money’ at random. I wouldn’t want you to be offended.

This isn’t a joke, it’s an actual embarrassing condition:

So please, allow me to continue the discussion by email. I won’t let you down.

Thanks

Stewie

I have a speech impediment and I don’t think it’s funny. I do everything by email. What difference does it make? It’s good to have things in writing.

Would you slap a blind beggar and then laugh out loud? No, you wouldn’t [on second thoughts, maybe you would], so please grant me this simple courtesy. This is a normal way to do business in the UK. You want this to be confidential, so we can’t talk on the phone. Maybe you are wanted by the UN? The UK government monitors calls, so you are unintelligent for requesting this.

You say you used to work for Gaddafi? Well I went to the London School of Economics with his son Saif. We had fun times! He had an eye for the ladies and we sat next to each other in the despot dictator studies module.

I am happy to take a smaller percentage, if it helps. Please stop delaying and send me further details.

Thanks

Stewie

with all this excuses i dont think i can trust you again to want to put $15.5 million dollars in your care.

i can only feel comfortable and move ahead with the deal if you can agree to come to Libya to have a meeting with me were we can have proper discussions and agreements.

I don’t think it’s safe to visit Libya! Why don’t you fly to London? You can send the money to me via Western Union and I will meet you at the airport.

Thanks

Dear Dr Mailk

I understand your reluctance so I have attached photos to prove how trustworthy I am. The first one shows how much cash I currently have in safe storage in my mate’s garage. So your money wouldn’t make much of a difference to me, but I know I would be helping you.


The second photo shows me with Saif Gaddafi, at the time of his arrest (you can see he is surrendering). So I also have high contacts in the former regime in Libya.

I’m sure this has eased your fears, so please let me know how to proceed with this transaction.

Thanks

Stewie

No reply… Maybe he thought I was dodgy? Well, he should know!
