Contact Me ASAP (Nigerian Contacts Me About Depsiting MILLIONS Into My Bank Account)
E-Mail | February 20, 2003 | Martin Uche

Posted on 02/20/2003 4:31:35 PM PST by PJ-Comix

Attn: Sir,

I am Mr. Martin Uche Senior Manager accounts/audit department, in (UNION BANK OF NIGERIA PLC) Mr. Mark johnson a national of your country, who was a consultant with Shell-development Company in Nigeria and a personal friend Died and left behind his deposit in my finance house(UNION BANK OF NIGERIA PLC) valued at $7,753,000.00 (Seven Million Seven Hundred and Fifty Three Thousand United States Dollars Only). My relationship with Mr. Mark started in 1992 when I was a supervisor in UNION BANK OF NIGERIA PLC , Marina branch.

We met in my social club's annual end of the year party and I introduced him to my bank where he opened this account some few weeks later making me the account officer to the account which he operated until his unfortunate demise. On the 1st of June 2001, Mr. Mark, his wife and their three children were involved in a car accident . All occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost their lives. Since then I have made several enquiries to locate any of Mr. Mark's extended relatives this has also proved unsuccessful. After these several unsuccessful attempts, to locate any member of his family hence I contacted you. I am contacting you to assist in repatriating the money left behind by Mr. Mark before they get confiscated since the bank has declared the account unserviceable. I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over 2years since I was recalled back to Marina Branch as a Senior Manager from a transfer that took me to another branch of the bank.

I therefore seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased, so that the proceeds of this account valued at $7,753,000.00 (Seven Million Seven Hundred and Fifty Three Thousand United States Dollars Only) can be paid to you and then you and I can share the money. 70% to me and 30% to you. I have access to all necessary legal documents that can be used to back up any claim we may make.

All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us see this deal through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. Please get in touch with me through my email or phone and send to me your full name telephone and fax numbers to enable us discuss further about this transaction.

Anticipating your soonest co-operation.

Best regards,

Mr.Martin Uche.

And here is my e-mail reply to Mr. Martin Uche:

Mr. Uche---Small world. I actually knew Mark Johnson years ago and boffed his wife on a couple of occasions. Therefore I am deeply grieved to learn of their demise.

As to the $7,753,000.00 to be paid to me, I prefer they be first used to purchase the new Brooklyn Bridge Transit Bonds. I currently own $18 million of these bonds and they have paid me 15% yearly interest since I purchased them nearly 3 years ago. These bonds are being used for the renovation of the Brooklyn Bridge and commencing in 2004, tolls will be charged for crossing the Brooklyn Bridge. This is why such a high rate of interest is being paid on these bonds which are backed up by the Brooklyn Bridge as collateral.

Please contact me about investing the $7,753,000.00 into the Brooklyn Bridge Transit Bonds. If you have any other capital available, I would suggest you invest that into these bonds as well.

I am looking forward to our joint ownership of the Brooklyn Bridge Transit Bonds. Thank You.---P.J.

Mark Johnson was my father. This is a vicious sham. He only left $7,523,000.00.

Some people don't have your sense of humor. - tom

BBC ^ | February 19, 2003

Czech police have launched a major investigation after a senior diplomat was shot dead at the Nigerian embassy in the capital, Prague.

The dead man has been named as 50-year-old Michael Lekara Wayid, Nigeria's consul in the Czech Republic.

Polcie say they have arrested a 72-year-old Czech man.

According to unconfirmed reports, the man is suspected of opening fire because he was the victim of a financial swindle by a Nigerian group.

He is said to have been persuaded to give his bank details to someone posing as a senior Nigerian official.

In recent years, Nigerian-based organisations have been suspected of operating fraudulent schemes in several countries, promising large returns on financial transactions.

Here is one of the emails i got along these lines. The english is very interesting and the fact that this guy claims he diverted government funds that Allah has counseled him to contact me.




Dear Friend,

I will start by introductions, my names are Tunde Alabi. It may be surprise or wounded you how did I get your address since you do not know me, well I got it when trough chamber of commerce and industries. and it gives me joy to relate my testimony to you haven this instruction from Allah through divine revelation.

I am a Moslem and a retired military top officer in Nigerian Army that served under the past military regime. I was the financial secretary to the Armed Force Ruling Council (AFRC). With my position as a financial secretary, I was able to divert up to $50,700,000.00 (Fifty million Seven Hundred thousand U.S Dollars), into my personal Bank Account, hoping to invest the money when I'm retired.

Immediately I got retired, I had no rest of mind. I then decided to seek the face of Allah for forgiveness and after fasting and prayer through Divine Revelation, the Almighty Allah revealed to me that I should removed from my position to a foreign country where I will be able to invest this fund on a business and be happy with it.

I have wanted to transfer this money to foreign account before this present civilian president of my country set up a panel (Honorable Oputa
Panel) to probe the Bank Account of the past Military officers like me. Instead of loosing this money to this government, I quickly withdrew my money out of my Account and deposited the money in a finance and security company for safety.

Because I have already through a diplomatic services lodge or deposit the above sum of US$50.7m with a RELIABLE SECURITY COMPANY IN EUROPE. And it is on this note that I am soliciting for your assistance to help Me receive this amount into your account as I can not do it on my own because of security reasons and because of the code of conduct, which was introduced by President Olusegun Obasango to checkmate excess embezzlement and siphoning of the government and public funds to overseas country. So because of this nobody can transfer huge amount of money in the bank to another country or travel with it.

I am making arrangement to come over to your country but you need to receive this fund from the finance and security company in cash before I come over, I will be coming to your country with my family, as soon as I hear from you and you confirmed to me that, the fund is in your account.


And I have two options based on your anticipated efforts and contributions, I have resolved to give 15% commission or if you will like to be my business partner and 5 percent will be for any cast incurred by both parties in the process of this transaction, the 80% will be invest on the business which we agreed on when I get to your country.

It will be my pleasure to be able to co-operate with you on terms that you may wish, please reach Me with this Email address as soon as you received this e-mail message to know you opinion on this transaction, I look forward to your response.

Allah Blessed You.

Tunde Alabi.

I got a similar one a couple of years ago, and, after everyone in the office had a good laugh about it, I dumped it into the bottomless bit-bucket.

A member of an on-line classic car club to which I belong got one last week about buying a couple of his old cars. Smaller $$, of course, but Nigerian and the same M.O. Basically it's the same old money-laundering scam, and it must work for them occasionally, because they keep on doing it.

We advised him to forward the e-mail (including full header information) to the FBI. Turns out that they were, indeed interested in it as evidence -- as was the Secret Service.

If you still have your e-mail, I suggest that you do the same...

I think I will continue to have e-mail conversations with Mr. "Uche." He might be interested that I have several million for him to invest. Of course, if he wants this money, he will have to meet me at a hotel in Switzerland. I'll keep you all updated on these "negotiations."

I've received dozens myself but this time I got fed up with them and have decided to scam the scammer. Basically I am going to try to get Mr. Uche to waste a lot of money traveling all over the world to meet me in order that I may turn over my millions of dollars to him for investment purposes. Of course, each time something will come up where I am unable to make the appointment. I think I'll start our travels in Switzerland and then move on from there.

Here is how they get your email address. I have gotten several entries in my guestbook that I have had to remove. You have a new entry in your guestbook: ------------------------------------------------------ Just to warn all about entering your email address in any website guestbook.

Do you get emails promising you of untold fortunes from wives/sons/accountants/lawyers of dead dictators from Nigeria/Ivory Coast/South Africa/Angola/Namibia and other countries?

Here's how they get your email:

These are 419 Scammers (in this case), MUGU GUYMEN or GUYMEN collect email addresses from guestbooks on websites.

In every Guestbook that has had emails collected you will see a guestbook post from a 419 Scam Group.

Entries from MUGUS or MUGU GUYMEN from Nigeria in a guest book indicate that all the e-mail addresses are now in the hands of 419 scammers from countries in West Africa. They're putting these warnings so that other 419 scammers would not harvest the e-mails here. PLEASE THINK TWICE BEFORE PUTTING IN YOUR E-MAIL ADDRESS IN GUEST BOOKS. If you need to contact the owner(s) of a website, e-mail him/her/them directly.

Doubt what I say? Go to the: Google Search Engine and do a search of GUYMEN NIGERIA. Try it and you will find out that they are all over guestbooks they stake their claim too.

Beware of these scams. These mugus are the scum of the Internet. Please go to http://www.fraudaid.com or http://www.scamorama.com for more information.

Ha! They're offering you only $7 million? Just yesterday I was offered $25 million, and I already rushed to send them my banking info so that they can deposit the money into my life savings account! For some reason, the bank's computers must be down, because now it says I have a zero balance.

Seriously, it is a sad thing to see, because the crooks would not be emailing people if it didn't pay to do so, and it isn't the crafty and the clever that become victims. Maybe our government can tell the leaders of these nations that any foreign aid will be DECREASED by the amount of fraud perpetrated in their countries, and if they want to make up the difference to go after the con-artists instead. THAT would make the emails stop!

That's the hook which these cons use, the lure of a getting rich quick in an illegal way. Hence few victims come forward to complain to Nigerian officials that someone in their country won't play fair with them about circumventing their financial laws.

I'm getting bummed out reading this thread. I was feeling good when I started, because my offer of $18 million yesterday was a lot better than the $7 million offered to PJ_Comix. Then I read that Khepera is getting $50 million and Cultural Jihad is getting $25 million.

I'm starting to feel like I'm in the poor people class.

I'm working up a script for a playback scam--some of these folks are serious criminals, and I want them to think that they've hit the mother lode.

"Dear Mr. Umbgasi,

"I was quite surprised to hear from you. You see, I have a very awkward problem. I work on a 'Special Access Program' run by the US Department of Defense. This particular program involved purchasing large numbers of 'sterile' weapons that cannot be traced back to the US, and distributing them to various armed revolutionary groups fighting on behalf of US interests under the guise of the 'War on Terror.'

"The problem is that the program was rather hastily shut down, but not until after a sizable shipment of weapons and ammunition (worth about $300,000,000 US on the global arms black market) arrived at the US Customs bonded warehouse facility at San Pedro, California. These weapons include surface-to-air missiles, mortars, small arms, and rocket-propelled grenades. When the program was closed out, the documentation for this shipment was lost.

"These weapons are good quality, and they are now essentially available to me for free--if I can get someone to sign off on an end-user certificate to release them for export.

"As am officer of a major bank, I'm sure you have many connections with your nation's government. If I could prevail upon you to discreetly ask around to see if anyone in your nation's defense establishment might be willing to sign off on an end-user certificate, and thus allow the shipment to leave the US for your country. I can accompany the shipment. Once there, we can arrange for further transshipment of these weapons to various paying customers and split the proceeds."

Mind if I team up with you on that? I got a few ideas myself for how to handle these con artists. After all, I think a little turnabout is fair play...

I mean, who's going to object to the fact that a scam artist got scammed?

here's my collection.............. Pat Subject: INVESTMENT DISCUSSION. Date: Wed, 5 Feb 2003 23:17:13 -0500 From: Hassan Ahmad

Dear ceo, I am Dr. Hassan Ahmad, former special adviser on Petroleum matters to the late Head of State of Government of Nigeria Gen. Sani Abacha. Because of my strategic position in the former Government and also being a close confidant of the late Head of State, I was able to acquire personally the sum of $50,000,000.00 USD( fifty million United States Dollars only) presently lodged in a Security Deposit in Europe. I made this money largely through "CONSULTANCY FEE" and Good Faith Fees" paid by foreign Oil companies prior to Allocation of Deep Water Oil Blocs and other Lifting/prospecting Right. Nigeria is the 6th largest Producer/Exporter of Crude Oil in the World. As you are probably aware of the fact that Nigeria is prone to Military coups and the resultant Political/Economic Instability has fueled hyper Inflation, amongst other problems. I have therefore resolved to invest my money abroad, preferable in Rea! l Estate Properties and Importation of Goods from your country for safety and optimum returns on Investment. However the, present civilian administration of president Olusegun Obasanjo has placed a restriction of movement on every member of the cabinet of the past military government. This is as a result of the Justice Oputa panel of inquiry slated to investigate most of the atrocities perpetrated by the late former head of state. This means that I cannot travel out now till the panel conclude its investigations which only God knows when that would be. Straight transfer of this money into a bank abroad will present two major problems one, the tax incidence will be too high, as much as 60% of this money will go up in Taxes, Levies, Penalties etc. as a result of Government deliberate restrictions on flight of capital Abroad. However arrangement have been put in place for you to receive this money from a trust worthy security Deposit Company in Europe. As soon as you indicate your interest. I will send to you the security Code number, certificate of deposit number and airway bill number of the Deposit that will serve as the onus of proof to enable you claim the Money, which is tagged, Diplomatic Luggage. All I now need is an honest partner who can receive the money on my behalf and help me to invest as aforementioned. There is absolutely no risk involved in this transaction, as the money will be delivered to you in United States Dollars Bills. If you are interested in assisting me, please send to me by email immediately your preferred contact address where you can be reached at any time, upon receipt of the money, you are to lodge this money in a bank account and contact me for ne! cessary arrangements for the investment of the funds. For your help and assistance in this deal, you will be entitled to 25% of this money in cash or Equity if you wish to join the proposed company.

URGENT BUSINESS RELATIONSHIP

I am Alhaji Mohammed Abacha, the son of the late Nigerian Head of State who died on the 8th of June 1998 while in active services.

Following the sudden death of my father, General Sani Abacha, the present Civilian Government has thrown my family and I into a state of utter confusion, frustration, and hopelessness. I have been subjected to inhuman physical and physiological torture, incarceration by the security Agents in my country. I was only recently released from detention after been arraigned before the Federal High Court of Nigeria for an offence committed by my late father.

The incumbent civilian administration of Chief Olusegun Obasanjo has intensified his probe into my late father’s activities while in the office and he has frozen all our local and foreign accounts together with other assets of my family as a retaliation for what my late father did to him when he was alive as the Head of the Military regime in Nigeria. As a matter of fact, we have been declared bankrupt and they are not relenting to make us poor for life.

As a man that is so traumatized, I have lost confidence with anybody within my country as all those who benefited immensely during the regime of my late father have openly abandoned all my family.

MY REASONS FOR CONTACTING YOU.

I got your contacts through my personal research and out of desperation decided to reach you through this medium.

You must have heard over the media reports and the Internet on the recovery of various huge sums of money deposited by my late father in different Banks and security firms abroad. Some of these banks and security firms willingly gave-up/divulge their banking secrets and disclosed to the present civilian administration of Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, all my family’s cash lodgement and monetary transactions with them.

Please my dear, I repose great confidence in you and I hope you will not betray my confidence in you.

I have secretly deposited the sum of $20,000,000.00 with a security firm abroad whose name is withheld for now until we open communications. The money is contained in a metal box consignment with Security Deposit Number 009GM.

I shall be grateful if you could receive this fund into your Bank account for safekeeping. This arrangement is known to you and my junior brother (Abbas) only. So I will deal directly with you. I am proposing a 20% share of the fund to you for your kind assistance. I shall provide for you all the documents of the fund deposit with the security firm, and raise a power of attorney `to enable you claim and receive this fund into your bank account.

Also this transaction demands absolute confidentiality. On no condition must you disclose it to anybody irrespective of your relation with the person. Remember, Loose lips sinks ship

I am looking forward to your urgent and positive response via my email above. Alternative email ,afamily5@popmail.com

Best regards Alhaji Mohammed Abacha.

AFRICAN DEVELOPMENT BANK: FALOMO COMPLEX: IKOYI LAGOS:

GOODDAY,

I am Mr.Kahmal Hamed account Manager of AFRICAN DEVELOPMENT BANK(ADB) Nigeria. I have urgent and very confidential business proposition for you. On December 29th 1997, an American oil consultant/contractor with the Government of BENIN Republic, Mr. John Norman made a numbered time (Fixed) deposited for twelve calendar months, valued at US$35,800,30.00 (Thirty five Million eight hundred and thirty Dollars) in my branch. Upon maturity, I sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but got no reply.

After a month, we sent a reminder and finally we discovered from his contract employers, that Mr. John Norman died from an automobile accident. On further investigation, I found out that he did not leave a WILL and all attempts to trace his next of kin were fruitless. I therefore made further investigation and discovered that Mr. John Norman did not declare any next of kin in all his official documents, including his Bank Deposit paperwork. This sum of US$35,800,030.00 is still sitting in the Bank and the interest is being rolled over with the principal sum at the end of each year. No one will come forward to claim it.

According to the laws of the country, at the expiration of 5 (five)years, the money will revert to the ownership of the Government if nobody applies to claim thefunds. Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand in as the next of kin to Mr. John Norman so that the fruits of this old man's labor will not get into the hands of some corrupt officials. This is simple, I will like you to provide me immediately with your full names and address so that the attorney will prepare the necessary documents and affidavits, which will put you in place as the next of kin. We shall employ the services of two attorneys for drafting and notarization of the WILL and obtain the necessary documents and letter of probate/administration in your favor for the transfer.A bank account in any part of the world, which you will provide, will then facilitate the transfer ofthis money to you as the beneficiary/next of kin. The money will be paid into your account for us to share in the ratio of 60% for me and 30% for you while 10% will be set aside for miscellenous expenses.

There is no risk at all as all the paperwork for this transaction will be done by the attorney and my position as the Branch Manager guarantees the successful execution of this transaction. If you are interested, please reply immediately via the private email address below. Upon your response, I shall then provide you with more details and relevant documents that will help you understand. Please observe utmost confidentiality, and rest assured that this transaction would be most profitable for both of us because I shall require your assistance to invest my share in your country. Awaiting your urgent reply via email.zezani_mariam@yahoo.com

Thanks and regards.

Kahmal Hamed

Dear Sir,

First I must solicit your confidence in this transaction. This is by virtue of its nature as being utterly confidential and top secret. We shall be counting on your ability and reliability to prosecute a transaction of great magnitude involving a pending business transaction requiring maximum confidence.

We are top officials of the Federal Government Contract Review Panel who are interested in importation of goods into our country with funds which are presently trapped in Nigeria. In order to commence this business we solicit your assistance to enable us RECIEVE the said trapped funds ABROAD.

The source of this fund is as follows : During the regime of our late head of state, Gen. Sani Abacha, the government officials set up companies and awarded themselves contracts which were grossly over-invoiced in various Ministries. The NEW CIVILIAN Government set up a Contract Review Panel (C.R.P) and we have identified a lot of inflated contract funds which are presently floating in the Central Bank of Nigeria (C.B.N). However, due to our position as civil servants and members of this panel, we cannot acquire this money in our names. I have therefore, been delegated as a matter of trust by my colleagues of the panel to look for an Overseas partner INTO whose ACCOUNT the sum of US$31,000,000.00 (Thirty one Million United States Dollars) WILL BE PAID BY TELEGRAPHIC TRANSFER. Hence we are writing you this letter.

We have agreed to share the money thus: 70% for us (the officials) 20% for the FOREIGN PARTNER (you) 10% to be used in settling taxation and all local and foreign expenses. It is from this 70% that we wish to commence the importation business. Please note that this transaction is 100% safe and we hope that the funds arrive your account in latest ten (10) banking days from the date of reciept of the following information by email: A suitable name and bank account into which the funds can be paid.

The above information will enable us write letters of claim and job description respectively. This way we will use your company's name to apply for payments and re-award the contract in your company name.

We are looking forward to doing business with you and solicit your confidentiality in this transaction. For security reasons and in order to move forward quickly, please respond to me via the above email address so I can bring You into the complete picture of this pending project.

The best response however, would be via telephone call which i will provide as soon as you indicate your willingness to commence.

Yours Faithfully,

CHIEF BEN OSAGIE.

THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

I am very much interested to enter into a mutual business relationship with you,after going through your profile yesterday.

I am Madam Rebecca Kabila, the second wife of the late President of Democratic Republic of Congo, Laurent Desire Kabila who was assassinated on January 16th 2001 by one of his security aides. I am under severe pressure from this present military government headed by the first son of my late Husband, General Joseph Kabila who felt victimized due to the incessant family problems between his biological mother and I.

He has seized all the deposited funds registered under my care by my Late husband, through the help of his friend who is the Governor of Central Bank of Congo. However, I have USD$30.1m (Thirty Million,One hundred thousand United States Dollars} currently in a coded security company vault overseas, which I now intend to use to establish a profitable business venture abroad to enable me and my family start life all over again.

As a result, I am urgently in need of a very reliable investor participant who is not known as my associate, that I could entrust with the PIN !!> and Certificate of Deposit to help me remove the fund since no name were used in securing the vault. I cannot successfully claim it myself as the government searchlight is still on my immediate family, hence I crave your assistance.You will in addition bank and assist me in investing (with my lawyers approval on project) as a front until the situation becomes more favorable for us to now meet and discuss the way forward.

Finally, more details on the logistic and modalities of the transaction will be given to you on my receiving your acceptance letter. I do not need to remind you of the absolute secrecy and confidentiality that this transaction demands.

Best Regards,

Madam R. Kabila.

It is with strict confidence and trust that I wish to contact you seeking for your assistance to help as regard investment, hoping that you will consider my request and give me positive response hence time is essence.

However, I am making this contact to you based on trust and confidence irrespective of the fact that we have not met before and because of the nature of the business I am about to introduce, I want to remain positive having the faith and the will and convincing myself that you will be capable to do business with me. As a matter of introduction, I am the Financial Director/ Chief Accountant of INEC, meaning, Independent National Electoral Commission. This organization INEC is in charge of conducting Elections in my country Nigeria.

Consequently, during the last election held in my country in 1999, about US$ 1 billion was allocated to this office by the past Military Government that handed over power to the Civilian Administration that is governing the political Sorvergn of Federal Republic of Nigeria as at now. The office of the Auditor General of the Federal Republic of Nigeria has audited my agency, INEC this January 2002 in respect of the Primary elections that will be taking place this year while the Governor ship and Presidential election will take place next year, 2003 On disbursing of the US$1 billion for Election purposes, about US$800 million was utilized in conducting all the elections while US$200 million was left as balance out of the US$1 billion given to my agency INEC. During this auditing this January, it was left for my office to give account of all expenses utilized in conducting the elections and while doing this accountability with the auditor General Of the Federation, I and my two other partners secretly removed the sum of US$15.5 million from the INEC Treasury account and included it as part of money used during the last election. Our intention is to transfer the funds out of the country to any reliable foreign account Pending when we shall come over to that your country and collect our percentage specifically meant for investment purposes.

As the Chief Financial Director of INEC, I have already declared to the Authorities and the Auditor General of the Federation here that out of the US$1 billion given to us, US$184.5 million is the balance left and the US$15.5 million through over invoicing records have been pushed to the Forex Account of bank of Nigeria awaiting the necessary documents to be processed to obtain valid and legal authorization prior to telegraphic wire transfer taking place to your designated bank account.

Note: Our reason for contacting you in this confidential transaction is due to the fact as top civil servants working under government establishment or corporation we are not allowed to operate foreign account as it is against the new Government Anti Corruption Code of Conduct Bureau and on discovery that we have access to foreign account, we shall be dismissed from service immediately and based on this difficult situation, we have no other option than to look for a reliable foreign partner to assist us in taking out this fund. All we need from you is nothing but to allow us use your bank account and transfer this money immediately before we commence the primary elections in my country this year.

Finally, this transaction will be finalized precisely in 12 banking days and we shall be given you 10% of the total sum for your support, assistance and cooperation in seeing that this funds transfer succeeds. On the other hand, you are being guaranteed also that there is no atom of risk involved in your participation hence the transaction will be handled with utmost confidentiality in other to avoid any leakage. On acceptance of this letter, which I believe you will give me a positive answer, please contact me on my email:bakoahmedtukur@mailcity.com for further directives on this matter.

Dear Sir,

I ‘m Barrister Paul Adams, the legal adviser to Mr. Ali B. A. of blessed memory, an oil contractor with the shell development company.

On the 21st of April 1999, my client, his wife and their two children were involved in a car accident along Sagamu/Lagos Express Road. Unfortunately they all lost their lives in the event of the accident, since then I have made several enquiries to the embassy to locate any of my clients extended relatives, this has also proved unsuccessful.

After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to trace his relatives or friends but of no avail. I have decided to contacted you to assist in repatriating the money and property left behind by my client before it is too late.

The bank had issued a notice to my chambers to assist and locate any of his relation or heir on or before the 15th of December 2002 to come forward with enough proof of evidence and claim the fund or have the fund transferred into the government treasury as an unclaimed bill.

Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over 3 years now I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased so that the proceeds of this account valued at $9 million dollars can be paid to you and then you and me can share the money.

60% to me and 30% to you, while 10% should be for expenses or tax as your government may require.

I have all necessary legal documents that can be used to back up the claim on your behalf. All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us see this deal through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. Please get in touch with me by my email above or pauladams_chambers2002@usa.com for more detailed information.

Best Regards,

Paul Adams Esq.

>From The Desk Of Barrister Edward Saliu 28/08/02

My name is Barrister Edward Saliu. I am a practicing attorney with my Chambers at 26 Sobo Arobiodu Road, Surulere, Lagos, Nigeria. I seek your assistance to bring a pending transaction to a logical conclusion. About four years ago, a client bearing Mr. David Prescott briefed me form Canada but residing in Port Harcourt, one of the crude oil producing cities in Nigeria. He forwarded documents to me claiming to have concluded certain turn around maintenance (TAM) on the Port Harcourt oil refinery and was been owed the sum of $20,320,000.00. (Twenty million three hundred and twenty thousand United States dollars) by the federal government of Nigeria. I was briefed to legally assist in ensuring that the funds were paid. I was to get a legal fee of 5% of the total sum at the release of the funds to Mr. David Prescott. Some months back, Mr. David Prescott was involved in a motor accident at portharcort and unfortunately lost his life. Ever since then, my office has tried contacting any next of kin of his for over a year but to no avail. From our investigations we found out that he had resided in Nigeria for over 20 years and so has lost touch with any relatives of his. Infact, he has no next of kin. The issue now at stake is that I have been able to successfully process Mr. David Prescott's contractual payment in his name, as I received a letter for him from a government designated banking institution that an account has been opened in his name (Mr. David Prescott) and his owed funds has been paid into the said accoun . Considering that my client is dead, I have no means of being paid for my legal services rendered over the past four years, hence my need for a partner who would claim the said funds as the next of kin after collecting and transferring the funds on our behalf, pay me my legal fees and an extra 65% of the total fund,20% would be for you and 10% for any expenses which may be incurred in the process of the transfer. Hence my searching for a foreign partner who I would introduce as the next of kin of Mr. David Prescott and who could assist me in transferring the funds. I am contacting you in strict confidence and trust ho ping in you I have found a right partner. This whole process should not take more than 3 working days. I want to assure you of a 100% risk free nature of this transaction as I have taken everything into consideration. Please contact me if you are interested on my telephone number 234-8023274036 or my email: law_ed0@mailcity.com also ensure to forward to me your confidential email and tel/fax numbers.

The purpose of my introduction is that I am JAJA YERIMA, the first son of DAVID YERIMA , the most popular farmer in Zimbabwe who was recently murdered in the land dispute in my country. I got your contact through network online hence decide to write you. Before the death of my father, he had taken me to Johannesburg to deposit the sum of US$7,000,000.00(seven million united states of America dollars)in one security company as he forsaw the coming danger in zimbabwe.

This money was deposited in a box as gemstones in to avoid much demurage from the security company.This amount was meart for the purchase of new machines and chemicals for the new farm and establishment in Swiztland.

This land problems came when Zimbawean president ROBERT MUGABE introduced a new land act reform who holly affected the rich white farmers and some few black farmers. And this resulted to the killing and mob action by Zimbabwe war returns and some lunatics in the society. It is against this background that I and my family fled Zimbabwe for fear of our lives and currently staying in The Netherlands where we seek political asylum and mooreso have decided to transfer my father' money to more reliable foreign account sinces the law of The netherland prohibits a refugee to open any bank account or to be involveed in any financial transaction throughout the territorial zone of Netherland .

As the eldest son of my father , I am saddled to which the respobility of seeking a genuine foreign account where this money could be transfered without the the knowledge of my government who are bert on taking everything we have got.The South Africa government seems to be playing along with them. I am faced with the delima of moving this amount of money out of South Africa for fear of going through the same experience in future, both countries have similar political history. I am seeking for a partner who I have to entrust my future and family in his hand, I must let you know that this transaction is risk free.

If you accept to assist me and my family , all I want you to do for me , is to arrange with the security company to clear the consignment (funds) from their afiliate office here in the Netherlands as I have already given directives for the consignment to be brought to The Netherlands from South Africa. But before then all modalities will have to be put in place e.g change of ownership to the consignment and this money intend I intend to use for investment .

I have two options for you , firstly you can choose to have certain percentage of the money or you can go into partnership with me for the proper profitable investment of the money in your country . Which ever the option you want , feel free to notify me. I have aslo mapped out 5% of the money for all kinds of expense incured in the process of this transaction. If you do not prefer a partnership I am willing to give you 15% of the money while the remaining 80% will be for my investment in your country.

Contact me with the above email address while i imlore you to maintain the absolute secrecy required in this transaction. and your phone and fax number will be need for the transaction.

Thanks God bless you

JAJA YERIMA.

DEAR SIR.

I currently have within my reach the sum of FIFTY TWO MILLION US Dollars (US$52,000,000.00) cash which l intend to use for investment, like Real Estate Development or import/export business specifically in your country. This money came as a payback contract deal between my late husband and a Russian Firm on our countries multi-billion dollars Ajaokuta Steel Plant Project.

In view of these, l acted fast to withdraw the US$52,000,000.00 from the company's vault and deposited in another private security company vault within the country.

I have since declared the Security Company bankrupt. No record ever existed concerning the money traceable by the government because there is no documentation showing that we received the money from the Russian.

Due to the current situation in the country concerning government attitude towards my family, it has become quite impossible for me to make use of this money within. Let me refer you to the front page of This Day Newspapers of 10th March 2001. You can check it through their website : www.thisdayonline.com , click on archives,8th. june, 2001) The present government in Nigeria had frozen and seized all my bank accounts both here in Nigeria and abroad. Thus consent l shall expect you to contact me urgently to enable us discuss in detail about this transaction. Bearing in mind that your assistance is needed to transfer this fund, l proposed a percentage of 20% of the total sum to you for the expected service and assistance, 10% for offsetting minor expenses incurred in the course of this transaction. Your urgent response is highly needed as to stop further contacts. All correspondence must be by the email address above. l must use this opportunity to implore you to exercise the utmost indulgence to keep this matter extraordinarily confidential whatever your decision while await your prompt response.

NB: Because of the security being mounted on the members of my family, l have decided that this transaction be kept in utmost secrecy, remember to include your private Telephone or fax number for easy communication.

MR. PULEDI MPEZI. PACIFIC BANK OF SOUTH AFRICA, 9TH FLOOR, HEERENGRACHT TOWER, STANDARD BANK CENTER, CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA.

I am Mr. Puledi Mpezi, Provincial Director Pacific Bank of South Africa, Johannesburg Branch. I have urgent and very confidential business proposition for you.

On June 6, 1998, an American Oil consultant/contractor with the South Africa Mining Corporation, Mr. Charles Andason made a numbered time (Fixed) Deposit for twelve calendar months, valued at US$25,000,000.00 (Twenty- five Million Dollars) in my branch. Upon maturity, I sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but got no reply. After a month, we sent a reminder and finally we discovered from his contract employers, the South Africa Mining Corporation that Mr. Charles Andason died from an automobile accident. On further investigation, I found out that he died without making a WILL, and all attempts to trace his next of kin was fruitless.

I therefore made further investigation and discovered that Mr. Charles Andason did not declare any kin or relations in all his official documents, including his Bank Deposit paperwork in my Bank. This sum of US$25,000,000.00 is still sitting in my Bank and the interest is being rolled over with the principal sum at the end of each year. No one will ever come forward to claim it. According to South Africa Law, at the expiration of 5 (five) years, the money will revert to the ownership of the South Africa Government if nobody applies to claim the fund.

Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you to stand in as the next of kin to Mr. Charles Andason so that the fruits of this old man's labor will not get into the hands of some corrupt government officials. This is simple, I will like you to provide immediately your full names and address so that the Attorney will prepare the necessary documents and affidavits which will put you in place as the next of kin. We shall employ the service of two Attorneys for drafting and notarization of the WILL and to obtain the necessary documents and letter of probate/administration in your favor for the transfer. A bank account in any part of the world which you will provide will then facilitate the transfer of this money to you as the beneficiary/next of kin. The money will be paid into your account for us to share in the ratio of 60% for me and 40% for you.

There is no risk at all as all the paperwork for this transaction will be done by the Attorney and my position as the Branch Manager guarantees the successful execution of this transaction. If you are interested, please reply immediately via the private email address below.. Upon your response, I shall then provide you with more details and relevant documents that will help you understand the transaction.

Please observe utmost confidentiality, and rest assured that this transaction would be most profitable for both of us because I shall require your assistance to invest my share in your country.

Sincerely Puledi Mpezi

I think that the entire Nigerian nation is engaged in one big scam

You know, you are correct.
I have a friend from a country adjoining Nigeria. He told me that Nigerians are notorious in Africa for all kinds of sleazy deals and laziness.

I receive several versions of this from different people several times a DAY! I have two e-mail accounts and one of them is nothing but spam (about 20 a day). I use it when I have to give out my e-mail address.

Hey! I must be moving up in the world. This morning I received ANOTHER Nigerian e-mail offering to deposit over $18 million into my bank account. Here is the e-mail and my reply:

ABACHA'S FAMILY ESTATE. HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL.

ATTENTION,

It is with heartfelt hope that I write to seek your co-operation and assistance in the context stated below:

May I first introduce my self as Dr. Mrs. Mariam Abacha, the wife of Late General Sani Abacha (former military head of state and president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria) who died suddenly on 8th June 1998. The sum of (US$18,753,000.00) Eighteen Million Seven Hundred and Fifty Three Thousand United States Dollars secretly willed in my favour by the late general (my husband).

This money is kept in a trust account with a Security Company here in (LOME REP OF TOGO). As it is equally required, the administration of my late husband's property is under the authority of out family attorney. however, the current civilian administration of retired General Olusegun Obasanjo (the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria) is seeking vengeance on the Abacha family because of the life prison jail sentence confirmed on him by my late husband.

In pursuit of this vendetta, the present government have resolved to freeze all known assets of General Sani Abacha, including properties at home and abroad and are presently embarking on to seize the various bank accounts of my husband.

In fact, the attack on our family (The Abacha's) is so devastated to an extent of seizing our traveling passport, family accounts and even trying some members of our family in court for offences allegedly committed by my late husband. In view of this grievous threat to our Economic and personal survival, our family trustee have secretly protected the will, but seriously advised me to move (US$18,753,000.00) Eighteen Million Seven Hundred and Fifty Three Thousand United States Dollars into an overseas account, hence the reason why I have chosen you and hope that you will come to my full assistance and unlimited co-operation.

In the meantime, there is a traveling embargo on us (the whole family members) and our local accounts are Seized. We are currently living on goodwill of people Who believe we cannot be held responsible for the Sins of my late husband. In view of this plight, I Expect you to be trustworthy and kind enough to respond to this distressed call to save me and my children from a hopeless future.

And if you agree I will compensate you sincerely and can did effort in this regard with 25% of the total amount of (US$18,753,000.00) Eighteen Million Seven Hundred and Fifty Three Thousand United States Dollars. In that case, when the money is moved into your discrete account, you will be allowed to draw 25% in your favour, while the remaining 75% will be invested meaningfully for my children's future. Our family attorney has perfected arrangements with the Security Company concerned and has assured 100% risk free and safe operation.

I look forward to your quick response while thanking you for your co-operation. In view of all above details, I request you to keep this letter and operation highly confidential. Please remember to include your private Telephone and Fax numbers for easy communication.

With my best wishes,

Dr. Mrs. Mariam Abacha

And here is my reply to Dr. Mrs. Mariam Abacha:

Hi Mariam---I am sorry to hear about your problems. Since your husband was the former military head of state and president of Nigeria, I bet you are very attractive.

Anyway, I am currently living in the Cayman Islands. My bank accounts are all secret. However, since I have a rather lucrative cash business with my Columbian business partner, Mr. Marco Traficante, I have sufficient funds to help you out.

Since it sounds like the Nigerian government is using your children to hold you hostage in Nigeria, I think it would be easy for you to slip across the border by yourself without them (you can retrieve them after you get out of Nigeria). I wish send you $400,000 living expenses when you escape from Nigeria until you can obtain your money in Togo. This would be a very good investment since I would be getting 25% of the investment in Togo. If you like, you can live here in the Cayman Islands at my beach house. Since my home is very large, you will have a lot of privacy.

So what activities do you enjoy doing Mariam? I like romantic moonlight walks along the beach. Please send me your photo.---P.J.

Ever since I posted this Nigerian e-mail scam and a couple of others, my Nigerian e-mail has dropped to ZERO! No Nigerian e-mail scams in over a week. I used to get as many as a couple of these scam e-mails per day and now NOTHING! Was this because of my postings of these scams here on the FR? Has anybody else noticed a dropoff in Nigerian Scam e-mail? Is the FR so influential that merely by spotlighting these scams on this forum will cause them to go away? Inquiring minds want to know.
