    How to report fraud to Geocities?

    I just received a South Africa bank fraud email. The domain name points to a Geocities page. I wanted to report it to Geocities... as there is a bank in South Africa called Standard Bank, but this is obviously not their homepage.


    Dear Sir,



    This mail may come to you as a surprise but plead with you to patiently read through it before making a decision whether to assist me or not.

    l wish to solicit for your assistance in the transaction which l strongly believe will be of mutual benefit to both of us.

    My name is Mr. Jomo Pedro, a branch manager of a leading bank in South Africa. l and two of my colleagues wish to seek your assistance in the transfer of some huge sum of money into a foreign bank account.

    This money was deposited in a fixed deposit account in the bank by an American national, six years ago. The length of time for the maturity of the fixed deposit was five years, which expired towards the ending of last year. Incidentally, Mr. Jeff Stevens, who was the beneficiary died in a car Accident here in South Africa, in May 2000 and he left nobody as next-of-kin to claim this money. All efforts made to trace any known relations of his proved abortive, and no one has written our bank in this regard.

    All modalities for the successful transfer of this money into an offshore bank account have been put in place and we are looking for a trust worthy foreign partner into whose bank account this fund would be remitted to and it is this regard that my colleagues have mandated me to! Provide a partner who will assist us. We have agreed to compensate you with 25% of the total amount if you should accept to assist us.

    lf you are interested in giving us the required assistance, kindly reply this mail stating your Telephone/Fax numbers for further action. Because of the secrecy surrounding this transaction, l suggests that you contact me only through e-mail, until further notice.

    l am looking forward to a favorable reply from you soon. Feel free to ask any question in this regard.

    l remain,

    Yours Faithfully,

    Mr.Jomo Pedro
