Of all the spam e-mails I get, this has to be one of the best yet.
Greetings to you,
I am Mirjana Markovic, the wife of late Slobodan Milosevic,former Yugoslav President who died of cardiac arrest in his cell at the United Nations detention unit in The Hague on 12th March,2006 while he was awaiting trial of charges against him by United Nation chief prosecutor Carla Del Ponte in which some of the charges levelled against him are crime of genocide,crimes against humanity in connection with events that took place in Kosovo in 1999 and also for crime in connection with atrocities committed in Croatia.
As you may know from the international media,that the whole problem of my husband actually started after he rejected the calls for international action to end violence in Kosovo in March 1998.Due to his rejection NATO issued ultimatum to my husband Slobodan Milosevic to stop crackdown on Kosovo Albanians or face air strikes.So by March 24,1999 NATO warplanes began air campaign against targets throughout Yugoslavia and on May 27,1999 United Nation war crimes tribunal confirmed my husband Slobodan Milosevic as war criminal.
On April 1 2001 my husband Slobodan Milosevic was arrested but shortly before this unfortunate period my husband discussed with me that he has some funds which is to the tune of US$48.5 Million United States Dollars in cash under special arrangement which is in custody of a Private security and Trustee company for safe keeping abroad which no one knows about.But right now due to the circumstances around my husband’s charges and his death.The present government’s attitude towards our family is hostile which make me incapacitated to go ahead to lodge the claim of the deposit made by my husband with the security company.
Hence I seek your good assistance to make the collection of the deposit from the security company and invest these funds into profitable investment in your country to facilitate future survival for myself and children abroad.I have decided to offer 15% of these funds to you as compensation for your strong cooperation.
Please I count on your absolute confidentiality ,transparency and trust while looking forward to your prompt reply towards a swift conclusion of this business transaction.
I remain yours sincerely.
– Mrs Mirjana Markovic
