Another Internet Scam: From MRS. ALICE FARAH

Dear Friend,

My name is Mrs alice.farah  am the manager of auditing and accounting department of BANK OF AFRICA (B.O.A) here in Ouagadougou , Burkina Faso . In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of US$10.m dollars (Ten Million US dollars) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer (MR. RICHARD BURSON from Florida, U.S.A) who died along with his entire family on October 1999 in a plane crash. For more information’s about the crash you can visit this site:
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/ americas/502503.stm

Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next of kin to come over and claim his money because we can not release it unless some body applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines and laws but unfortunately we learnt that all his supposed next of kin or relation died alongside with him at the plane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim. It is therefore upon this discovery that I now decided to make this business proposal to you, so that the money can be release to you as the next of kin or relation to the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody will come for it and we don't want this money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed dormant fund.

The banking law and guideline here stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed after eleven years the money will be transferred into the bank treasury as unclaimed dormant fund. The request of foreigner as next of kin in this business is occasioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner and a Burkinabe can not stand as next of kin to a foreigner.

I agreed that 40% of this money will be for you as a respect to the provision of a foreign account, 10% will be set aside for expenses incurred during the business and 50% would be for me. Thereafter, I will visit your country for disbursement according to the percentage indicated Therefore, to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to you arranged, you must apply first to the bank as relation or next of kin to the deceased customer with a text of application that I will send to you, but before i send to you the text of application form, I will like you to send me the following information
1.NAME IN FULL:......................... .......
2.ADDRESS:.................... ...................
3.NATIONALITY:................ ...................
4.AGE:........................ .....................
5.Sex......................... .....................
6.OCCUPATION:................. .....................
7.MARITAL STATUS:....................... ...........
8.PRIAVTE PHONE NO............................ ................
9.PRIVATE FAX NO:........................... ..................

so i will like you to send to me those information’s for easy and effective communication.

Upon receipt of your reply, I will send to you by fax or email the text of the application form. I will not fail to bring to your notice that this transaction is hitch-free and that you should not entertain any atom of fear as all required arrangements have been made for the transfer. You should contact me immediately as soon as you receive this letter, if only you are interested and ready to help. Trusting to hear from you immediately.
Yours Faithfully,
MRS. ALICE FARAH MANAGER AUDITING AND ACCOUNTING DEPARTMENT

My Name is Sr. Francisco De Manuel Mateus;
I am from Portugal I have been diagnosed with cancer. It has defiled all
forms of medical treatment, and right now I have only about a few months
to live, according to medical experts. I have not particularly lived my
life so well, as I never really cared for anyone (not even myself) but my
business.

Though I am very rich, I was never generous, I was always hostile to
people and only focused on my business as that was the only thing I cared
for. But now I regret all this as I now know that there is more to life
than just wanting to have or make all the money in the world.

I believe when God gives me a second chance to come to this world I would
live my life a different way from how I have lived it. I would want to
have a Personal and Trustworthy Relationship with you, as I intend and
willing to empower the change of ownership for the transfer of my Deposits
to your personal possession for further Investment and Charity

Another Internet Scam: "ASSASIN I HAVE BEEN PAYED TO TERMINATE YOU"

Carl Ackermann 
 
This is the only way I could contact you for now, I want you to be very careful about this  and keep this secret with you until I make out space for us to see. You have no need of knowing who I am or where I am from. I know this may sound very surprising to you but it's the situation. I have been paid some ransom in advance to terminate you with some reasons listed to me by my employer. It's someone I believe you call a friend; I have followed you closely for a while now and have seen that you are innocent of the accusations he leveled against you. Do not contact the police or try to send a copy of this to them, because if you do, I will know, and I might be pushed to do what I have been paid to do. Besides, this is the first time I turn out to be a betrayer in my job. I took pity on you, that is why I have made up my mind to help you if you are willing to help yourself.

Now listen, I will arrange for us to see face to face, but before that, I need $9,000. I will come to your home or you determine where you wish we meet; I repeat, do not arrange for the cops and if you play hard to get, it will be extended to your family. Do not set any camera to cover us or set up any tape to record our conversation; my employer is in my control now. Payment details will be provided for you to make a part payment of $3,000 first, which will serve as guarantee that you are ready to co-operate, then I will post a copy of the video tape that contains his request for me to terminate you which will be enough evidence for you to take any legal action against him before he employs another person for the job. You will pay the balance of $3,000 once you receive the tape.

Warning; do not contact the police, make sure you stay indoors once it is 7.30pm every day  until this whole thing is sorted out, if you neglect any of these warnings, you will have yourself to blame. You do not have much time, so get back to me immediately

Note: I will advise you keep this to yourself alone, not even a friend or a family member should know about it because it could be one of them.

Another Internet Scam: From Mrs. Fenard Latisis

Dear friend,

I am writing you with honesty over a project I want you to undertake on my
behalf due to the deteriorating ill health (cancer ailment) which has
totally weighed me down over years. When my late Husband was alive we
deposited a huge sum of money of Thirty One Million Great British Pounds which were
derived from our vast estates and investment in crude oil market with a financial
firm in Europe .

Recently, my Doctor told me that I have limited days to live due to the
cancerous problems I am suffering from. Though what bothers me most is the
stroke that I have in addition to the cancer. With this hard reality that
has befallen my family, I have decided to will this fund to you and
want you to use this gift which comes from our effort to fund the upkeep
of widows, widowers, orphans, destitute, the down-trodden, physically
challenged children, barren-women and persons who prove to be genuinely
handicapped financially.

I took this decision because I do not have trust over my relatives and
partners. I do not want my hard earned money to be misused or invested
into ill perceived ventures. I want you to stand as the new beneficiary to
the funds. My happiness is that I lived a life worthy of emulation. Please
always be prayerful for me. Please assure me that you will act just as I
have stated herein.



Note: you are not expended to spend any amount of money in this transaction, what i
need from you is your prayers and also utilizes those funds as instructed.

Dearest,

How are you? I hope that all is well with you. I am writing this mail to you with tears and sorrow from my heart. I will really like to have a good relationship with you, and I have a special reason why I decided to contact you.

I decided to contact you because of the urgency of my situation here in the refugee camp, I am Ms. Halima JAMMEH the only surviving child of Late Major Musa JAMMEH and I am 24 years old and I am from Gambia. My father Late Major Musa JAMMEH was the Principal Protection Officer to the President of Gambia; but after the death of my father, I discovered that my late father deposited some huge amount of money in a bank in Burkina Faso .

I am constrained to contact you because of the maltreatment I was receiving from my step mother who plotted to kill me; together with my uncle. She planned to take away all my late father's treasury and properties from me since the unexpected death of my beloved Father. Meanwhile I wanted to escape to the Europe but she seized my international passport and other valuable travelling documents, so I decided to escape from Gambia . I was brought to Burkina Faso by a Good Samaritan who handed me over to the United Nation Refugee Camp in Burkina Faso where I am presently seeking asylum as a refugee after my ordeal. My father of blessed memory deposited the sum of US$13.7 Million in Bank with my name as the next of kin.

However, I shall forward to you all the necessary documents on confirmation of your acceptance to assist me for the transfer and investment of the fund. As you will help me in an investment, and I will like to complete my studies, as I was in my 1st year in the university, when my late father died. It is my intention to compensate you with 30% of the total money for your services and the balance shall be my investment capital.

This is the reason why I decided to contact you. As soon as I receive your positive response showing your interest I will put things into action immediately. In the light of the above, I shall appreciate an urgent message indicating your ability and willingness to handle this transaction sincerely. I am staying at the female hostel. I wait your urgent and positive response. Please do keep this to yourself alone for confidential purpose. And you should not disclose it until I come over to your country, once the fund has been transferred to your bank account.

Thanks, And God bless you and your family, I will send you my picture in my next mail, ok.

Yours Love Sincerely,

Ms. Halima JAMMEH.

I want our bank to release these funds to you as the nearest person to our deceased customer while i come over to your country to share this fund with you as soon as you confirm this fund into your account and ask me to come over.  I don't want the money to go into our Bank treasure as an abandoned fund. So this is the reason why i contacted you so that our bank will release this money to you as the next of kin to the deceased customer. Please I would like you to keep this proposal as a top secret and delete it if you are not interesting.
 
 Upon the receipt of your reply and indication of your capability, i will give you full details on how the business will be executed and also note that you will have 50% of the above mentioned sum if you agree to handle this business with me while the remaining 50% will be for me because i don't want anyone here in our bank to know my involvement until you confirm this fund into your account and ask me to come over for the sharing as i indicated.
 
 i am looking forward to hearing from you immediately,
 Thanks with my best regards

Another Internet Scam: From Mr.Yara Ahmed

From The Desk Of  Mr.Yara Ahmed.
The Head Of File Department,   
African Development Bank (A.D.B).
Ouagadougou Burkina-Faso West Africa. 


                         (REMITTANCE OF $15 MILLION U.S.A DOLLARS)
                                
Forgive my indignation if this message comes to you as a surprise and may offend your personality for contacting you without your prior consent and writing through this channel. I got your contact from the professional data base found in the internet Yahoo tourist search. When i was searching for a foreign reliable partner. I assured of your capability and reliability to champion this business opportunity.
 
After series of prayers/fasting. I was divinely directed to contact you among other names found in the data base Yahoo tourist search. I believe that God has a way of helping who is in need.
 
I am (MR.YARA AHMED) the Head of file Department in African development bank (ADB). In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of $15 million U.S.A dollars ( fifteen million U.S.A dollars).In an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer who died along with all his family in the Asia Earth Quake Disaster (TSUNAMI,DISASTER ININDONESIA / INDIA. 
 
Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next of kin to come over and claim his money because we cannot release it unless somebody apply for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines, but unfortunately i learnt that all his supposed next of kin or relation died along side with him at the  Earth Quake Disaster (TSUNAMI,DISASTER) leaving nobody behind for the claim.
 
 therefore upon this discovery that I now decided to make this business proposal to you and release the money to you as the next of kin or relation to the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and i don’t want this money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill.
 
The Banking law and guideline here stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed after five years, the money will be transferred into the Bank treasury as unclaimed fund. The request of foreigner as next of kin in this business is occasioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner, and a Burkinabe cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner. I agree that 40% of this money will be for you as foreign partner, in respect to the provision of a foreign account and 60% would be for me. That means ($6 million) six million dollars for you and ($9 million) nine million dollars for me. There after i will visit your country for disbursement according to the percentages indicated.
 
Therefore to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to you as arranged, you must apply first to the bank as relations or next of kin of the deceased indicating your bank name, your bank account number, your private telephone and fax number for easy and effective communication and location where the money will be remitted. Upon receipt of your reply, I will send to you by fax or email the text of the application I will not fail to bring to your notice that this transaction is hitch free and that you should not entertain any atom of fear as all required arrangements have been made for the transfer.
 
I am waiting for your immediate response as you receive this mail. Extend my sincere greetings to your entire family. God bless you and bye for now.

Another Internet Scam: From Mrs Golshan asad (CRY OF A DYING WIDOW)

My dear in the Lord,
greetings to you in the most name of our Almighty ALLAH. His richest blessings shall be upon you forever!  I am Mrs Golshan asad. I am 52 years old from Iran , based in England , UK .

I was brought up in a motherless babies home, was married to my late husband, Farid Asad for twenty two years without a child before the cold hand of death took him away. I became deaf while suffering from a long time cancer of the Lungs which also affected my brain. From all indication, my condition is really deteriorating each time of the day. Recently, my Doctor told me that I have a limited or numbered days on earth and that my life span will not exceed 150 days due to the cancerous problems I am suffering from, and it is quite obvious that, according to my doctors they have advised me that I will live for the next few months, this is because the cancer has eating up my lungs. Presently, I'm with my laptop in a hospital where I have been undergoing treatment for this cancer of the lungs, I have since lost my ability to talk.

I am not afraid of death hence I know where I am going. I know that I am going to be with the Almighty ALLAH when I eventually passed on. The Almighty will fight my case and I shall hold my peace.

My husband worked with the Iranian Oil Company UK Ltd A UK company registered in London and is a subsidiary of Naftiran Intertrade Company (NICO), active in the North Sea UK Continental Shelf in Oil and Gas Exploration and Development projects.  for over two decade, beside that he had his own private business. Before his death we were both devoted Muslims as we made a vow to uplift the Down-trodden and the less-privileged individuals. Since his death I decided not to re-marry, I sold all our properties and deposited the total sum of $10.2 Million,(Ten Million Two hundred Thousand US Dollars with a financial institution in A South East Asia Country) when I discovered that with this ailment I am no longer on the safe side to continue with this charity work which I and my late husband both started hence I asked ALLAH for a direction that would enable me get someone who has the interest of ALLAH at heart to continue where I and my late husband had stopped, until I got this revelation of you. Presently, this money is still with the financial institution. My wishes are that, this money should be invested in any organization of your choice and distribute the fund each year among the charity organizations, widows, widowers and the poor. I want you as a God fearing person, to also use this money to fund Mosques/orphanages homes.

Allah (SWT), the Wise, has said in the Noble Qur'an: "Then as for him who gives away and guards (against evil), and accepts the best, We will facilitate for him the easy end." Suratul Lail (92:5-7)

I took this decision because I don't have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are not at peace with me and I don't want my husband's hard earned money to be misused by unbelievers.

I don't want a situation where this money will be used in an ungodly manner. Hence the reason for taking this bold decision. I am not afraid of death hence I know where I am going. I know that I am going to be in the bossom of ALLAH.

I do not need any telephone communication hence I have already lost the ability to talk due to my deteriorating health I do not want a situation where this money will be used in an ungodly manner, hence the reason for taking this bold decision trusting on ALLAH'S directions. With ALLAH all things are possible. As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of my attorney whom I have entrusted every detail regarding this fund. As Soon as your information is been received by my attorney, original beneficiary of this fund with other related documents, to make it possible for you to get started on with this charity work.

I took this decision, before I rest in peace because my time will soon be up. I will advice you to be sincere with my attorney, to enable him work out the entire vital document in your favor, and always be prayerful all through your life.
ALLAH bless you and hope to hear from you soonest.@mrsgolshanasad@yahoo.com
Yours truly,
Mrs Golshan asad.

I found your profile in a Charity directory with your contact information attached to it.Taking into consideration your status and result oriented profile I consider you a perfect choice to achieve a positive result in this project.

My husband and I made a vow to uplift the down-trodden and the less-privileged individuals as he had passion for persons who can not help themselves due to physical disability or financial predicament, With this hard reality that has befallen me, I am donating the sum of $5 million United State Dollars to you for charity works in Your Country, I want you to use it and help the underprivileged and widows since I cannot do it myself due to my cancer problem. I took this decision because my kids cannot handle this projects, secondly they have too much money to their names and my husband relatives are bourgeois and very wealthy persons and I do not want my hard earned money to be misused or invested into ill perceived ventures. I do not want a situation where this money will be used in a worldly manner.

I have authorized my Private accountant, Mr Frank Moss with Royal Bank of Scotland UK, whom I communicate with via emails everyday, to change the ownership of my account to your name and address and to carry out the transfer of the full $5,000,000.00 USD to you in your country.

Another Internet Scam: From Barrister Senam Gavah

From: Barrister Senam Gavah.
Senior Advocate of the cabinet ESQ
Burkina Faso, West Africa.
Tel: 00226 78 56 92 33.

Attn:.

With due respect, please don't be surprised or afraid to receive this type of message from me. I am Barrister Senam Gavah, the personal resident Attorney to Dr. Eric MORGAN, the late businessman who died with his wife in the event of terrorist attack on 11th September, 2001 World Trade Centre in America. My client Dr. Eric MORGAN leaves the total sum of Fourteen Million Two Hundred thousand united state dollars ($14.2m USD) in his bank account here in Burkina Faso .

Dr. Morgan was a Gold & Diamond dealer in some of East and South Africa countries but the reason of bringing such amount here is to establish Cement Factory. Unfortunately he lost his live with his family in the event of the incident. I have made several enquiries to locate any of his relatives but to no avail.

Above all, hence nobody is available for the claim I am looking for a dependable individual that I can trust, someone who wiling and honest enough to carry out this transaction with diligent to the best of his/her ability to collaboration and transfer the money from the bank custody before end of next month. Besides, the bank officials are treating to confiscate the fund to bank treasury as unclaimed bill because the banking rules and regulations stipulate that if such amount remain unclaimed after (9) years they will confiscate and transfer to bank treasury as unclaimed fund.

The request for foreigner as next of kin in this business is occasioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner and Burkinabe is unacceptable to stand as next of kin to a foreigner here in my country.

Therefore, to enable the immediate transfer of the fund as indicated, you must apply first to the bank as the deceased next of kin by indicating your bank information where the money will be remitted. You may be interested to know that I have all the necessary legal documents to backup the claim.

All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us seeing this deal through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you and me from any branch of law. I hope you will welcome this life opportunity, if so, please get back to me with confirmation of your good interest to enable us discuss further about the sharing ratios.

Upon the receipt of your acceptance, I will send you more detail explanation for your better understanding.
Waiting for your urgent respond,

Another Internet Scam: From MR CHAN LEE

GoodDay,

Greetings!

Do accept my apologies if my mail does not meet your personal ethics, I want to introduce myself and this business opportunity to you. My name is MR CHAN LEE Esq., a personal attorney to my late client. I wish to know if we can work together.

I would like you to stand as the next of kin to my late client who has an account valued 8.7million United States dollars, with a bank here in HongKong. He died without any registered next of kin and as such the funds now have an open beneficiary mandate. The board of directors of his Bank adopted a resolution and I was mandated to provide his next of kin for the payment of this money or forfeit the money to the Bank as an abandoned property.

Fortunately, both of you have the same last name so it will be very easy to make you become his official next of kin. If you are interested, do let me know so that I can give you comprehensive details on what we are to do.

I urgently hope to get your response as soon as possible.



Yours sincerely,
MR CHAN LEE Esq.

Another Internet Scam: From Mrs. Judith Morris

Dear friend,

My name is Mrs. Judith Morris , a well known business woman. I am 69 years
old, living in The Southern Part of Wales (United Kingdom). I am a
successful business woman,owning some industries and companies, with some
good stocks in various banks. I have spent all my life, investing in
co-operate businesses and real-estates until the death of My husband and
my only son in a ghastly car accident that took place sometimes in middle
November 2003.

I must say that after the death of my family, I became a workaholic and
very greedy with businesses and I presume that is what lead to my present
ordeal. I stopped caring for people around and forgot how to live.

However, my abuse of alcohol and tobacco increased and that lead to
another problem when in early 2005, February to be precise, I got a letter
for medical checkup after a brief illness. After wards, I was told by my
personal
Doctor, that I have a cancer of the lungs, which according to her, would
not allow me to live longer anymore. Ever since then, doing businesses has
become uneasy as I am frequently in and out of the hospital for
treatments, medications and Chemo-therapy sections.

In light with the above, I have since, started attending to a local church
and presently made some substantial donation to the church. It actually i
felt good. Therefore, I have recently, consulted the pastor for a private
counseling. I have told him my life story and we prayed together and after
wards, he gave me an advice which is my reason of contacting you at this
moment.

His advice was this: That the Lord will grant my soul mercy if I could
help the needy people, homeless, orphans and less privileged homes that
need this money. Including Business women and men for investment, whereby
most of the earnings will be used in helping less privileged families and
people. I have sold my companies, houses and other assets. Coupled with my
bank accounts, a substantial amount at the estimate of (11.000.000.00
Pounds) Eleven Million british pounds, is realized for this project.

Because of the above reasons therefore, I am writing this letter to people
who really need help from me, to please contact me urgently, to discuss on
his/her plans towards the use of the money.

Please contact me Via Email and let me know what you intend to do with the
money and if satisfied, I will introduce you to my private lawyer whom I
have set up all arrangements with for further discussions. As you know, I
am a born again and so much with God’s work. Therefore, I would appreciate
it a lot, if you are a God fearing human with a good heart.

May the good God bless you, as you reach me, please I wish to remind you,
that you should not belong to scammers or any act of fraudulent as the God
sees and knows everything, He surely will point you out. Therefore, be as
honest to me as possible and our God will do the rest.

With best Regards,

Your sister,
Mrs. Judith Morris.

Through the sale of our allocated oil quota in OPEC, he was able to make S$10.million.(TEN MILLION UNITED STATES DOLLARS)I want you to assist me to claim this money as i cannot claim it directly because he made the deposit as a fund belonging to his business associate in order not to raise eyebrow since he was a civil servant during that time, and the code of conduct bureau forbids him or his wife to acquire such amount of money.
It is on this basis that I am contacting you for assistance, if you will be interested, claim documents will been processed and sent to you. The documents with which the fund is deposited will be amended to reflect you as the beneficiary so that you will be eligible to collect the fund as his business associate.

I will not fail to bring to your notice that this business is risk free and doesn't have any negative implication. You should not entertain any fear as all modalities for the smooth and easy transfer of this fund have been finalized. If you can conveniently assure me of your ability to keep this business very secret and confidential, you can write back to me for further details.

Another Internet Scam: From Dr Haris Hakim

Dear Friend,
 
                       TOP SECRET
 I am Dr Haris Hakim, the director in charge of auditing and accounting section of Bank of Africa,Ouagadougou Burkina faso West Africa with due respect and regard.I have decided to contact you on a business transaction that will be very beneaficial to both of  us at the end of the transaction.
  During our investigation  and auditing in this bank ,my department came across a very huge sum of money  belonging  to a deceased person  who died in a plane crash july 2000 and the fund has been dormant in his account with this Bank with out any claim of the fund  in our custody either from his family or relation before our discovery to this developement.
The said amount was EIGHTHEEN MILLION united states  dollars.($18000.000.00) Meanwhile all the whole arrangement to put the claim over this fund as the bonafide next of kin to the deceased;get the required approval and transfer this money to a foriegn account  has  been put in place and directives and needed information will be relayed to you  as soon  as  you indicate your interest and willingness to assist us and  also benefit your self to this great business opportunity.
Infact i could have done this deal alone  but because  of my position in this country as a civil servant(A Banker),we are not  allowed  to operate  a foriegn account and would eventually  raise  an eye  brow  on my side  during  the time of transfer becuase i work  in this bank. This is the reason why it will require  a second party or fellow  who  will forward claims  as the next of kin to the bank  and  also present  a foriegn account where he will need the money  to be  retransferred into  on his request  as it may be after due verification and clarification by the correspondent branch  of the bank where the  money will be remitted from to your own designation bank account.
I will not fail to inform you that this transaction  is 100% risk free.On smooth conclusion of this transaction;you will be entitled  to 30%of the total  sum as gratification;while5% will be set aside to take care of expenses that may arise during the time of transfer and also telephone  bills; while65%will be for me. Please you have been adviced to keep  top secret as i am still in service and intend to retire  from service after we conclude  this deal with you.
I will be monitoring  the whole  situation here in this bank until you confirm the money  in your account  and ask  me to come  down to your country  for subsequent sharing of the fund according  to percentages previously  indicated and further investment,either in  your
country or any  country  you advice us to invest. All other necessary vital  information will be sent to  you when i hear from you.

Please reply to this email: harishakim1@laposte.net
Yours  faithfully
Dr Haris Hakim.
