I received an email from Mrs. R Ramalinga, copied below. I would like to know how such emails are dealt with and who takes action against them? -
My name is Radha Ramalinga,I am the wife of Rama Ramalinga,the younger brother of Byrraju Ramalinga Raju,former chairman,founder and owner of Satyam Computers.
I do have a proposal for you,which would be of immense financial benefits to you and I.
My husband and his brother are currently in big trouble in India,I need your assistance to help me move some funds from Holland to India or anywhere where it would at least be of some help to our family.
I would give you more details of this proposal if you show yourself willing to take on it,I assure you that you would most certainly be compensated but please I would kindly request you to keep this matter confidential.
I am currently here in the UK where it is a bit safe for me and my kids.
You can reach me on my personal email id which is email@example.com
I played with that mail, I said i am willing to do this.
Then after some days i had a reply from the same firstname.lastname@example.org. Which contains,
Thank you very much for your early response to my email.
We have hardly met in the past and my message to you must come as a surprise, do forgive me if i have caused any discomforts, the urgency of the moment has made me desperate, I had gotten your email address from jobsites in India, my family case has been well documented in the media and it is this present situation that has made me contact you, a total stranger but an Indian to help me in this transaction, I want someone who is not related to the family in any way, someone who can be trusted to help us confidentially.
Like I had written in my first mail to you, the Funds was deposited by my husband B. Suryanarayana Raju, with a Security company in Holland providing very confidential vaulting services, the contents of your deposit is known to you only and the services are very reliable.Now that things have turned out this way and we need money presently, I want to ask the security company to move our safe deposit from Holland back to India, so that we would be able to have access to the money, I would want you to front as a recipient of the Deposit, the reason is that everything that bears our family name is considered to be government property for now and really this amount is what we have left and we would not want to loose it, there are legal bills to pay, health and the family welfare as a whole, we are suffering presently and I have reasoned that the only way we can survive is to have that funds sent back to India, i have the necessary documents with which the deposit box will be sent to India without any hassles, you would receive it there, take it to a safe place till where we will decide on what we will do.
You are not known or related to the family so there really would not be any problem, it would be a very simple transaction between you and me and if you do not tell anyone then nobody will know about it.We hardly know each other and all that but I believe my family situation is not news to any Indian anymore, everyone must have heard about the issue, I am begging you from the core of my Indian being to help us with a little kindness.
I guarantee you that you will be well compensated and that this poses no risk to you.I am offering you a 20% cut on the total amount which is Fifteen Million United States Dollars.
Should you feel inclined to assist me, I would want you to provide me with your full names, phone number, home address and a photo identification in your next reply.These information are only for the purpose of naming you the bonafide recipient of the consignment to the Security company in Europe.
I hope to read from you soon.
I have replied with some others photo with my mobile no in order to stop this nonsense matters.
Now i am waiting for her reply.
I will post it as soon as getting the mail from the same.
Guys, BE AWARE, I decided to play with it and even called her to check whether she is talking or not, BUT no she is avoiding talking by always saying "call later" Secondly she has indicated that she will need my help in custom duties and some help for investments etc that indicated this lady is fraud and trying to collect money from Indians using fake names of ramalinga raju BE AWARE GUYS
