So why is Carlos Delgado e-mailing me? Does he want me to try out for the Mets? Is he inviting me to come watch Spring Training? No, he has more sinister motives.
I am Mr.Carlos Delgado Executive Director of the La Caixa Bank Ltd, Spain.
An Iraqi named Haider Hanoon,a business man made a numbered fixed deposit of (346,736,899.68 TWD) for 18 calendar months, this is valued
to Fourty One million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars only
in my branch. Upon maturity several notice was sent to him, even during
the war, five years ago (2003). Again after the war another
notification was sent and still no response came from him. We later
found out that Haider Hanoon and his family had been killed during the
war in Gunfire that hit their home at Mukaradeeb where his personal oil
After further investigation it was also discovered that Haider Hanoon
did not declare any next of kin in his official papers including the
paper work of his bank deposit And he also confided in me the last
time we was at my office that no one except me knew of his deposit in
my bank. So, Fourty One million Five Hundred Thousand United State
Dollars is still lying in my bank and no one will ever come forward to
claim it. What bothers me is that according to the laws of my country
at the expiration five years six months the funds will revert to the
ownership of the Spanish Government if nobody applies to claim the
My proposal, I am prepared to place you as the next of kin in a
position to instruct LA CAIXA BANK to release the deposit to you as
the closest surviving relation. Upon receipt of the deposit, I am
prepared to share the money with you in a favorable percentage. That is: I will simply
nominate you as the next of kin and have them release the deposit to
you. We share the percentage 70/30. I would have gone ahead to ask the
funds be released to me, but that would have drawn a straight line in
my involvement in claiming the deposit. I assure you that I could have
the deposit released to you within a few days. I will simply inform the
bank of the final closing of the file relating to Haider Hanoon I will
then officially communicate with my Bank and instruct them to release
the deposit to you. With these: all is done. I am aware of the
consequences of this proposal.
I ask that if you find no interest in this project that you should
discard this mail. I ask that you do not be vindictive and destructive.
If my offer is of no appeal to you, delete this message and forget I
ever contacted you. Do not destroy my career because you do not approve
of my proposal. You may not know this but people like myself who have
made tidy sums out of comparable situations run the whole private
banking sector. I am not a criminal and what I do, I do not find
against good conscience, this may be hard for you to understand, but
the dynamics of my industry dictates that I make this move. Such
opportunities only come ones way once in a lifetime. I cannot let this
chance pass me by, for once I find myself in total control of my
destiny. These chances wont pass me by. I ask that you do not destroy
my chance, if you will not work with me let me know and let me move on
with my life but do not destroy me. I am a family man and this is an
opportunity to provide them with new opportunities.
If you give me positive signals, I will initiate this process towards a
conclusion. I wish to inform you that should you contact me via
official channels; I will deny knowing you and about this project. I
repeat, I do not want you contacting me through my official phone lines
nor do I want you contacting me through my official email account.
Contact me only through the numbers I will provide for you and also
through the email account that i will provide therein in this email.
Further more be informed that the fact that you are a foreigner give
you the privilege to stand in as my deceased client beneficiary as my
deceased client had no relation all his family died with him during the
war and I can not use my relation because its not accepted here in Spain.
Also I am very confident that we will be able to establish the
trust that is needed to complete this deal and all that I need from the
time been is your willingness and commitment so that we can end this in
the next one weeks.
What you need to understand about this transaction is that I will make
sure that it passes through all international banking laws regards to
this I will take care of all the expenses and the cost of retaining the
service of my Attorney to give the transaction the proper documentation
that is required to perfect the finishing. Your only obligation in this
transaction will be to set up two offshore accounts that can
accommodate these funds and I will give you more light later once you
agree to partner with me. Like I said before there is no risk involve as
it will pass through international banking laws and all documents
related to this transaction will be sent to you by post for your
perusal and trust.
I do not want any direct link between you and me. My official lines are
not secure lines as they are periodically monitored to assess our level
of customer care in line with our Total Quality Management Policy.
Please observe this instruction religiously. Please, again, note I am a
family man, I have wife and children. I send you this mail not without
a measure of fear as to what the consequences, but I know within me
that nothing ventured is nothing gained and that success and riches
never come easy or on a platter of gold. This is the one truth I have
learned from my clients. Do not betray my confidence.

be interested I will prefer you to send me your FULL
NAMES,ADDRESS,OCCUPATION AND PHONE NUMBER. on the email address below.
Your earliest response to this letter will be appreciated.
I await your response.
Mr.Carlos Alberto DELGADO
Did Carlos Delgado also have his assets frozen as part of the Stanford investigation? I think he very well might have, and he's turning to spam e-mail scams to get his money back. Unlike some player e-mail scams, this is 1000% real. He obviously can't say who he really is, so he is pretending to be a bank president from Spain. Very clever, Mr. Delgado.
Not content to send just one e-mail, Carlos e-mailed me once again today. The text of the e-mail was the same, but the subject was different: ACKNOWLEDGE RECEIPT.
So what should I do? I mean, it's not every day that I get an e-mail from a professional baseball player. The man just wants his money. Carlos Delgado is a pretty likeable guy, so maybe I should help him out.
