.. well, I guess this is new as I have never seen this one before. Have a look.

Hello.
First of all I will introduce myself as well. My name is Oleg Kirichenko - man. I`m a web designer. I am 30 yrs old. I live in Kiev, Ukraine. Currently, I work for the different US Internet companies (I`m a temporary employee). So, I need your help to get my wages.
They're to pay me but they don't send money directly to Ukraine, because this company pays by direct deposits available in USA and Canada only. You can ask me: Why don't they pay me by checks? Yes, they can, but here, in Ukraine, it is very difficult to collect on the checks (enormous commission fees and it takes 2-3 months). I realize that you can't provide me your current bank account. So, If you are ready to help me, would you be so kind to open a new zero-balanced checking account. After, I need to get the following details:

1.Bank name
2.Bank address
3.Account owner
4.Account number
5.Bank routing number (usually in Fedwire system)

So, when I inform my employer he'll initiate the transfer.
When the bank transfer is completed I will need your assistance once again to transfer the money via Western Union or MoneyGram(it is not the best (profitable) way but it's the fastest one).

Reasonable question: Can I trust you? And how can you trust me? I suggest the following to avoid misunderstanding: I send you a scan of my ID (passport) and you do the same thing.

Finally, we have to solve the problem regarding your interest in this deal. I suppose you should get an interest for your cooperation.
I will have 2000 a week (approx.). Any suggestions?
Let me know ASAP, if it is acceptable to you.

Oleg Kirichenko.

Yes, as with all other 419 scams, I dont have a clue who this guy is and how he got my email ID.

Sounds like the traditional Nigerian businesses now outsource to Ukraine.

I wonder if there were any 'job loses' in Nigeria due to this new outsourced model of doing fraud!
 
I miss the old days when I would think up a sinister scheme for world domination and you would show a little emotional support. So just look at this tiny ad:
