Hello Dear,

I am MOHAMMAD AMIN from United Kingdom, i am working as a Purchasing Manager
in this company SUPERIOR RARE GEMS INTERNATIONAL
(S.R.G.I) .so

Due to my present condition of health now, I sincerely demand for your honest
co-operation. I have deliberated this in my mind and decided to offer you this
profitable business for the both of us.

This is a profitable business which will be of mutual benefit to both of us. I used
to go to Malaysia to purchase a product called (SAPPHIRE BLUE STONE) it's
a mineral stone that is used for making jewellries such as rings necklace bangle
and other valuable things.

I am unable to make this trip to Malaysia because of my health condition. I
have been diagnosed with heart disease which was discovered very late, due
to my laxity in caring for my health. It has defiled all forms of medication. Right
now, I am on admission and waiting for an operation to be carried out on me
that will take few months to recover according to the Medical Doctor.

My Company director has arranged for my Assistant Purchasing Manager
to come to Malaysia for the purchase of this product which I usually purchase
the product at the rate of (6,250USD) per kilo from an agent in Malaysia,
after i get it from the agent at this price i will now sell to the company where
i work at the higher rate of (11,500USD) per kilo.

In order to protect my previous dealings, I wish to appoint you as the
seller of this product in Malaysia.

The Assistant Purchasing Manager will soon be in Malaysia and i
want him to buy the products through you, while you contact the
agent in Malaysia to get this product from her and sell to the company
where i work.

You must not allow my Assistant purchasing manager to meet the
main agent in Malaysia because of the profit that is in between the
cost of the product in malaysia and the amount my company usually
buy.

If you can handle this transaction and promise to be faithful then I
will give you all the necessary information. I am waiting for your
positive and urgent response for us to proceed in this business. i
will also like you to give me your contact details so i can contact
you for better understanding.

For further inquiries you can write me on my private email: mohammad_amin19@yahoo.com
Thank you,

MOHAMMAD AMIN

Be Cool....

It is a scam for a number of reasons, but if you look at the addressee of the email, you will see that it is not personally addressed to you - your email address will have been put in the BCC field along with many others. The scammer is spamming his initial email to 10s (or even 100s) of people in the hope that 1 will reply.

Another thing to consider is why has this person picked you for this lucrative deal. If it was legitimate and not a scam. the sender would have friends or family that he could ask to do the deal on his behalf. So why is he randomly emailing people.

Finally, a search on the phrase "SAPPHIRE BLUE STONE" brings up as its number 1 hit a post on another anti-scam website with an email that is very similar to the one above.

It is a scam, and the best thing to do with the email is to just delete it.

I am an experienced Scam Baiter and any mails you see between me and scammers uses untraceable email accounts. Please do not get into correspondence with these criminals using your real life details.
