Email Scam from: Mr. Abdul Rasheed Mohammed


     I am Mr. Abdul Rasheed Mohammed, a chartered chief auditor with the BANK OF AFRICA,  Burkina Faso, Ouagadougou, West Africa. I got your contact address from your country through online directory. Your impressive and managerial records made me to solicit your partnership in this regard. You are the only person that I have contacted for this business and with the trust that you will not let me down.

     After going through some old files in the records during the audit for the year in my department which I am currently heading, I discovered that there was an  account opened in this bank since 2000 and nobody has operated on this very same account since then.

     The owner of this account as I discovered from the bank record secretly , is Late Mr. Jerome N. Snaga, a foreigner and a miner at the Anglo Gold Platinum Mining Company in Mafikeng Burkina Faso. A geologist by profession who died in 2001. Since his death till now, no body knows about this account or anything concerning this money.  No name of person or group of persons was documented as the beneficiary of this money because according to my investigation which I  made last few months ago, his family died along with him in a plane crash during their holiday trip ;  and his company knows nothing about this account . Two years after his death,  the company ran into bankruptcy.

     The amount involved in this discovered account is Fifteen Million, Five Hundred Thousand American Dollars (US$ 15.5.Million ) and I want to secretely transfer the total fund to a safe bank account overseas before my resignation from my bank. Meanwhile I contact you as a trusted partner who will stand as the beneficiary of the fund and next of kin/beneficiary to Late Jerome N. Snaga to claim this fund in your name. I am only contacting you as a foreigner because this fund can not be approved to a citizen of this nation or local bank here.

     So I only need your full co-operation in order to achieve the success of this project and be informed that our management is ready to approve this payment to whosoever person that has the correct information to this very account of which I will relate to you later if i am fully convinced of your capability to handle this fund in strict confidence and  trust  according to my instruction and advice for our mutual benefits because this opportunity may never come again in my life. I need your strong assurance, honesty ,trust, and reliability because I know that with good co-operation, we shall have good success.
     With my full position now in my department,  I am assuring you that this money can be transferred to a reliable foreign bank account which you will provide with the assurance that the money will be kept intact pending my physical arrival in your country for the sharing of the money.

     Be assured that you stand no risk of any kind as the fund belongs to us now. Therefore, after the eventual stage of the transfer of this fund to the account you shall be providing, I will offer you a reasonable amount to the sum of 40% from the total fund.  We shall remove 10% from the  fund to offset every expenses we might have incurred during the course of this project and 50%  will be for me.
     Do indicate your private information as listed below in your response for easier communication on this project.

Your Full Name:..............
Your Country:...................
Your Direct Phone N°........
Your Fax N°.......................if available.
Your Age:..........................
Your Sex..........................
     Once again, i need to be assured of your trust and reliability.   Looking forward to your urgent response.  
    Thanks for your co-operation.

Best Regards,
Mr. Abdul Rasheed Mohammed
(Chartered Auditor)
