i am mr. tambo

My blog is getting the attention of international financiers. I just received the following letter from Mr. Tambo, an executive in South Africa:

I am Mr.Tambo, a native of Cape Town in South Africa and I am an Executive Accountant with the South Africa Department of Mining & Natural Resources. First and foremost, I apologized using this medium to reach you for a transaction/business of this magnitude, but this is due to Confidentiality and prompt access reposed on this medium. Be informed that a member of the South Africa Export Promotion Council (SEPC) who was at the Government delegation to your country during a trade exhibition gave your enviable credentials/particulars to me. I have decided to seek a confidential co-operation with you in the execution of the deal described Hereunder for the benefit of all parties and hope you will keep it as a top secret because of the nature of this transaction.

Within the Department of Mining & Natural Resources where I work as an Executive Accountant and with the cooperation of four other top officials, we have in our possession as overdue payment bills totaling Twenty Six Million, Five Hundred Thousand U. S. Dollars ($26,500,000.) which we want to transfer abroad with the assistance and cooperation of a foreign company/individual to receive the said fund on our behalf or a reliable foreign non-company account to receive such funds. More so, we are handicapped in the circumstances, as the South Africa Civil Service Code of Conduct does not allow us to operate offshore account hence your importance in the whole transaction

Im picturing Mr. Tambo looking like Sherman Hemsley, wearing a top hat and a coat with tails. Once that vision passes, I will begin to concentrate on the truly unbelievable fact that somewhere on this planet earth there are people, not just people but people with computers, who will fall for this scam. (Mr. Tambo, you see, wants for you to send your bank information, etc.)

I may start going by the name Mr. Tambo. I love the way it sounds. Ive been saying it for hours now. Mr. Tambo, Mr. Tambo, Mr. Tambo. If I have a kid, I will definitely name him Mr. Tambo.

    You did not name your child Mr. Tambo.

    Now I’m saying it again. I’m making a pot roast right now, saying “I am Mr. Tambo” over and over again. It feel so good to say it. It’s so natural. I think, in a past life, I must have been a Mr. Tambo.

    No, no, Pete, I didn’t. But Arlo does sound very similar.
