Gaddafi's missus joins Lads from Lagos

'I need HELP to get out of this marriage'

Security for virtualized datacentres

The news yesterday that the Lads from Lagos had surfaced in Libya came as no surprise to the El Reg African affairs bureau, although the righteous shoeing Suleiman Evaristo Mohammed administered to the English language did have us reaching for the medicinal brandy.

Here's a related, rather better constructed and quite delightful missive from Gaddafi's downtrodden missus:

Greetings,

I am Safia Farkash Gaddafi, Second wife of Muammar Gaddafi. I have been a slave and brutally abused in my husband's house ever since i married him and i have been looking for a way out of the marriage. If i do when Col Muammar Gaddafi is still the leader of Libya he will kill me and my entire family. I am very happy that the people of Libya seek for a better Libya by protesting against Col Muammar Gaddafi which i am in full support of the protest but can not declare my support to avoid Muammar Gaddafi to kill me

Now that we have revolt in Libya, this is the best opportunity for me to run out of the hell marriage i got involved and live a better and free life. I succeeded in moving out $25.7M USD from my husband's underground safe which he accumulated from crude oil proceed to a bank escrow in Europe, due to the fact the UN, USA, EUROPEAN COMMITTEE have put sanction on Muammar Gaddafi and his family it is not wise for me to use my name as the depositor of the fund in the bank, so i decided to look for someone else not related to me or loyal Muammar Gaddafi as the depositor of the fund, that is why i am soliciting for your partnership to complete this transaction

I am willing to give you 40% of the sum for securing the fund. I will meet you where ever you want me to meet you as soon as you receive the fund for my 60% so that i can start a new and happy life

The Muammar Gaddafi will suffer the crime he committed against humanity and hope that the protect will crackdown his government. I will send you further information concerning the fund deposit and the bank as soon as i hear from you.

Please, if you are not interested do not disclose my intention so that it will not get to my husband, relatives or loyalist as he will burn me alive.

As soon as this transaction is completed i will leave Libya to meet you where ever you want me to come. This transaction is 100% safe on your side. I need HELP to get out of this marriage

If you are interested do get back to me for further information. You can also reach me at safia_farkash@rocketmail.com

I wait to hear from you

Sincerely

Safia Farkash Gaddafi

We're grateful to reader Pete Hewitt for pointing us in the direction of this textbook 419 email, which popped up here. Forty per cent of $25.7m? That's an awful lot of brandy, and no messing... ®
