Email From Minister Of General Administration Of Customs Of The Peoples Republic Of ChinaBeware - this is scam!

This morning I got an email which is definitely is scam! I am posting it with all the mistakes included. So, beware:


I want to apologies for contacting you through this manner. My name is Mu Xinsheng (Minister of General Administration of Customs of the Peoples Republic of China).

Forgive me if you see my business proposal as shameful and not honorable because of my governmental status.But please excuse me and understand that this is the situation I am and must find a credible partner outside Hong Kong preferably in the western world where i intend to invest and help charity.

In my years of government service as Narcotics Control Commission and General Adminstration of Customs, I have received kick backs from smugglers and business people seeking favors from me and as a public officer my bank accounts are monitored hence I kept the funds Thirty Five million United states dollars for safe keeping abroad.

I want you to receive the money which has been in deposit since the last Two years. When the money is in your bank account, I want to use Thirty Percent of the money for charity to help orphanage Children suffering (You will spare head this project and my name will not be mentioned). You will receive Twenty Percent as your commission and I will take the remaining fifty Percent as my share which I intend to settle with in your country.

Please consider this proposal and reply to me soon. It will certainly do you no good to report me to my government authorities or give out this information to anybody because doing so will only destroy my person and my career.

I will send you more details when you reply to my message.

Mu Xinsheng (JP).

    I just received a variation of this e-mail myself. First, the position is legit, but the name is WAY wrong. Won't post the real name because they may decide to change the name. Also, the e-mail at the end is a Yahoo Canada e-mail. Yep, definite scam.
