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...

Interesting to know that someone has actually been suckered by this scam.

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 had about a dozen or so different variations of the Nigerian scam email sent to me over the past year. I have them saved for a quick read when I need a laugh.

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.
