Jabor Thani

 

Fraud.

One out of five!

My name is Jabor Thani, a merchant in Qatar. I have recently been
diagnosed with Esophageal cancer, which has defiled all medical
treatment. Expert diagnosis has shown that I have few months to live.

The intention of this email is to employ the expertise of a business
entrepreneur, who can identify a viable investment and guarantee
reasonable returns on my wealth. This is to secure a future for my 4
years old son who lost his mother during birth. I cannot rely on his
closest relatives any more, as they did not show responsible behaviour
two years ago when I entrusted half of my wealth to them to invest on
his behalf. They thought I wouldnÂ’t survive the operation and then
used the money for their personal needs.

To prevent any more mishaps, my attorney will act as a check,
monitoring every aspect of the investment. Funds should be split in
half and distributed to charity organisation and the other half, as
investment for my son.

If this interests you, please reach me on the email address:
jabor.thani@all4rams.com to discuss terms and compensation.

Kind regard
Jabor Thani

Important Notes :-

1. Whatever you do, do not respond to any e-mail like this. If you have given bank details to any fraudster like this, then inform your bank immediately and also make sure that you close the account.

2. If the e-mail mentions a well known e-mail address such as from gmail.com, live.com, yahoo.com etc., then why not forward the offending e-mail to abuse@gmail.com, abuse@live.com etc. Hopefully, they'll remove the e-mail address, which will stop people being sucked in.

I have recieved an email such as this. Jabor Thani was in charge of a convention of cancer researchers in 2007.
I am embittered that this is a scam. I had a stroke in 2006 and have real financial problems. I need aid to pay off my debts and
maintain my credit reputation. Until my stroke I had no outstanding debt whatsoever.
I am a multidisciplinary designer
artist with historical and publication interests. If you can help...this is not a scam...contact me at toonisbureaut@msn.com . Perhaps if you can find the clientel I can help you as well.
