Scam to Divert Hidden Saddam Funds

This email seems a little out of date but, Mr. Azrim seems to thing that some uninformed, recipient will actually fall for his scam and provide him with their personal bank and ID information.

Even if one refuses to divulge personal information, the mere fact of inquiring about the offer will often lead to one’s email address being placed on a list of potential future targets.
In other words; future scams may be aimed at your personal email address adding an element of authenticity to the email. This also makes it harder for anti spam-ware to identify it as unsolicited email.

Once again the typical signs of a scam or Phishing scheme are present. Spelling and grammatical errors; “mananged” , no spaces between sentences. The reply email is to a free yahoo address, the one refered to below as private and personal.
