South African email scam

I seem to be getting more and more of these lately…

Good Day

I am Mr. Edward Xaki, President/CEO of Yard Scraper, Inc. South Africa (a
company based in the South Africa). A Company that is specialized in
import and export of industrial and domestic machinery & equipment,
communication accessories and household appliances.

We also deal on mechanical equipment, hardware and minerals, electrical
products, medical & chemicals, light industrial products and office
equipment, and export into America, Asia and Europe, therefore being a
General Mercantile Company. We currently run our business from America,
Asia and Europe but I will be communicating with you from our South Africa
Office where I am currently located for now. We are searching for
representatives who can help us establish a medium of getting to our
customers in America, Asia and Europe as well as making payments through
you to us. Please if you are interested in transacting business with us we
will be most glad to be your partners.

I realize that its quite too expensive and stressful for me to be coming
to the America, Asia and Europe to receive such payment twice or more in a
month. This is the main and sincere reason why I should be in need of your
assistance with trust and honesty from you.

All you need to do is to receive payment on my company behalf and then
cash it and you will remove 10% for yourself and then send the rest down
to my company account. You don’t have to go any length to pick the
payment, I will instruct my client to make the payment out to you and it
will be mailed out to you via mail.

As the president/CEO of this company I am willing to offer you 10% of
every payment that comes in through you with honesty on my company behalf.
Please contact us for more information about your
company/specialization/occupation. You will be given the opportunity to
negotiate your mode of which we will pay for your services as our
representative in America, Asia and Europe.

If you are interested, kindly forward to us your full names, direct phone
number/fax and your full contact addresses.

Please note that your area of specialization or occupation is of no
relevance to resolve to assist us.

Thanks in advance.

Mr. Edward Xaki.

Ah, the memories:
