Scam Email #4


I choose to reach you through e-mail, as it is the fastest medium of
communication irrespective of the fact that it has been greatly abused. I
deem it necessary to introduce you to a lucrative business opportunity.
I’m talking of crude oil trading! This is considered as the most
legitimate and fastest money making machinery anyone can setup.

A crude oil “lifting license” gives the owner the mandate of the National
Oil Company (Suppliers of the crude oil), to locate crude oil buyers and
arrange a buy/sale crude oil transaction between the oil company and the
crude oil buyers. The “lifting license” syndrome came into place because
the national oil company does not  deal directly with the buyers of
the crude oil rather; they prefer to issue oil “lifting license
allocations” to individuals/companies to assist them to market the crude
oil which they produce. Anyone that owns an lifting license” from the
local National Oil Company is entitle d to a $2.00 commission from the oil
company on each barrel of crude sold to the buyer and another $1. 00
commission from the buyer. In total, oil lifting license owners receives a
$3.00 commission on each barrel of crude sold by the oil company. Please
note that the commission rates of $2.00 and $1.00 normally increases in
times of crude oil scarcity.

The smallest license allocation/quantity one can procure from t he
National Oil Company is for the sale of 500,000 barrels of crude
monthly/per transaction. This implies that 500,000 barrels of crude oil
will be assigned to the license owner for sale per month. This allocation
size will earn the license owner about ($3.00 multiply by500,000 barrels)
which is $1.5 million gross commissions monthly. If one is lucky to

a bigger allocation that means you will be earning more commissions
monthly. These commissions will be calculated and paid to the license at
the end of the sales transaction.

Incase you decide to invest in this money spinning project; I will
personally reveal to you a well packaged procedure to acquire an oil
lifting license. I will personally assist you to locate the buyers of the
crude oil and facilitate the sales transactions for you while the
resulting commissions will be wired into your overseas nominated banking
co-ordinates as the license owner. You need a “seller agent” to assist you
to sale the crude since you are alien to this business and do not know the
buyers for the crude oil and al so because you are not locally resident

Feel free to ask for clarifications.
