He has deposited the money with a commercial bank here in ABIDJAN Cote D'Ivoire where I am residing under political asylum with my mother Mrs Rose Komah. Now the war in my Country is over with the help of (ECOMOG) Soldiers, the present government of Sierra-Leone has revoked the passport of all Officers who served under the former regime and ask all the Banks in my Country to freeze their account and confiscate their asset, it is on this action that I am contacting you, all I need from you, is to furnish me with your Bank infomations so I can forward it to the bank for them to commence the transfer of the fund without delayed. your private phone and fax number is also needed for easy communiction . The said amount is US$12.000.000.00 (Twelve Million US Dollars).

I am compensating you with 8% of the total money. Now all my hope is Banked on you and I really want to invest this money in your Country. Where their is stability of Government.Political and Economic Welfare.

Honestly I want you to believe that this transaction is real and never a joke, my late father Komah Felix gave me the original copy of the Deposit Slip, I do not expose myself to anybody I see, I believe that you are able to keep this transaction secret for me, because this money is the hope of my life, and also assure me and my mother that you will provide us legal documents to enable us obtain our Visa and join you immediately this money reach to your account in your Country. Then we can join head together [Holy Crap! We can join head together!] and look for a lucrative business which we will invest this money. It is very important.

Please bear with me immediately after you have gone through my message, feel free and make it urgent, that is the reason why I offered you 8% of the total amount. And in case of any other necessary expenses you might incure during this transaction. Please advise me and reach back to me immediately you receive this message for more explanation and promise me and my mother to be a father considering our situation not to betray us.

Mr Kodjo Zamani
Director, Audit and Accounts Unit,
Union Togolaise de Banque
B.P. 3302 Lome,
Republic of Togo


Dear,

Forgive me if this comes to you by surprise and if it might offend you for writing through this channel without your prior consent.

With due honour and respect, I am Mr Kodjo Zamani, the director in charge of Audit and Accounts Unit, Union Togolaise de Banque (Union Bank), Lome - Togo. I got your contact address recommended by a Togolaise business consultant, Elder John Kafui decided to contact you for beneficial and a 100% risk-free business transaction.

During our auditing and investigations in this bank for the 2001 fiscal year, my department came across the sum of Twenty-five million, Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars (USD25,500,000) only belonging to a Japanese international businessman who died along with his next of kin in the 5th November, 1997 aeroplane crash in Abidjan.

Before our discovery of this development, there was no trace of claim from any person as the fund remains dormant in his account with this bank. Although, I keep this information secret within my jurisdiction to enable us put claims and transfer the said amount through a trustworthy friend overseas whom we shall present to the bank as the bona-fide next-of-kin to the deceased for a profitable and successful deal.[Is this guy asking me to do something illegal? GASP!]

Meanwhile, all the arrangement to put claims as the bonafide next-of-kin to the deceased, to get the required approval and transfer of this money to a foreign account has been put in place. The directives and the needed information will be relayed to you as soon as you indicate your interest and willingness to benefit yourself of this great business opportunity.

Infact, we could have done this deal alone but because we civil servants/staff of a bank, are not legally allowed to operate foreign account and it would eventually raise eyebrows on our side during the time of transfer because we are staff of the bank [Ah, I see now. It would raise eyebrows for them to do this because they work for the bank. Now everything makes sense.]. These are the actual reasons it requires a second fellow who will forward claims through our support as the bona-fide next-of-kin with Togolaise court affidavit to the bank and also present a foreign bank account where the money on his/her request will be re-transferred into.

On conclusion of this transaction, you will be entitled to 28% of the total sum as gratification, 2% of the total sum will be used to reimburse expenses that might arise from telephone bills and other expenses during the transaction, while 70% will be for me and my partners here. Please you have been advised to keep this information as top secret as we are 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. We will then come down to your country for subsequent sharing of the fund according to the percentages previously indicated and for investment in any sector of your economy as you may advise us.

All other necessary information will be sent to you when I hear from you. I suggest you get back to me assoon as possible stating your willingness to be part of this deal, through e-mail or phone.

Yours faithfully,

Mr Kodjo Zamani.

FROM:PRINCE DAVID NUWMA
Email:david.prince1@caramail.com



Please,I am PRINCE DAVID NUWMA, son of the late MR PHILIP NUWMA from Sierra Leone. I am writing you in absolute confidence primarily to seek for your assistance to transfer our cash of Thirty Million United STATE Dollars (USD30Million) now in the custody of a Bank here in Abidjan to your private account pending our arrival to your country.

SOURCE OF THE FUND: [It looks like maybe Prince David Nuwma used the out-of-the-box Transfer-A-Lot-Of-Money-Overseas package here, and forgot to take out the outline when filling in the text. I don't hold that against you though, Prince.]My late father MR PHILIP NUWMA , a native of Mende district in the northern province of Sierra-Leone, was the Accountant General of Sierra Leone Mining Co-operation (S.L.M.C.) Freetown.
According to my father, the money was the income accrued from mining co-operation over draft and minor sales, before the peak of the civil war between the rebel forces of Major Paul Koromah and the combined forces of ECOMOG peace keeping operation that almost destroyed my country, following the forceful removal from power of the CIVILIAN ELECTED PRESIDENT AHMED TEJAN KABBAH by the rebels. My father had already made arrangement for the family, my mother and myself to be evacuated to Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire with our personal effects . My father lodged [Ack!] the money in a Bank here in Abidjan-Cote d'Ivoire for the safe custody until after the war when he will join us. During the war in my country, and following the indiscriminate looting of public and government properties by rebels forces, the Sierra-Leone Mining Coop. Was one of the targets looted and destroyed. My father including other top Government functionaries were attacked and killed by the rebels in November 1999 because of this relationship with the CIVILIAN PRESIDENT AHMED TEJAN KABBAH. As a result of my father's death, and with the news of my uncle involvement in air crash in January,dashed our hope of survival. The untimely deaths caused my mother heart failure and other related complications of which she later died in the hospital after we must have spent a lot of money on her. Now l am alone in this strange country suffering without any care or help.Without any relation. l am now like refugee and orphan.My only hope now is on this money that my late father lodged in the Bank . To this effect I humbly solicit your assistance in the following ways. To assist me transfer this money in your name to your country. To make good arrangement for a joint business investment on my behalf in your country under your supervision. To secure a college for me in your country to further our education. And to make arrangement for our coming over to your country after you have transfered this fund. Most importantly, the Bank officials has promised to assist me in this transfer.
The documents issued after the lodgement [There is no better word for this situation than lodgement. How beautiful.] of this fund is presently in my custody. For your assistance, l shall rewards you handsomely, according to the negotiation both of us shall agree.

Best Regards,

PRINCE DAVID NUWMA.

The amount is US$15.500.000 (Fifteen Million five hundred thousand united states dollars). We managed to escape to Abidjan the Republic of Cote d’Ivoire through the help of my husband’s friend who is a trawler. As our travelling document was seized.

I am now looking for a trustworthy and God fearing person who will handle this money for rapid profit for the future of my two fatherless children.

For your information, the finance company did not know the real content of the box and we do not wish them to know until the money is transferred to your account. [That ROCKS. Edith's Finance Company is going to transfer the box to my account. That way they won't have to open it. "Good evening, Miss Bank Teller. I would like to deposit this box in this account."] As it was deposited as family valuables and treasures.

Meanwhile, I want to leave Cote d’Ivoire entirely for investment of this money in your country and mostly for the future of my children. I want you to please assist us to claim the box from the finance company and to deposit the money in your account as to order the bank to transfer the money to your account in your country. As our foreign partner.

We have it in mind to reward you with a certain percentage for your assistance. As soon as we hear from you. Do not hesitate to call me on this line Tel: 00225 07 59 86 53. immediately you receive this letter to enable us proceed in earnest towards retrieving the box and transferring of the money into your account.

Finally please ensure that no one else knows about this money as it is only myself my son, yourself and the Rev. pastor of the church where we worship knows about this money. May God bless you as you assist me.

Mrs Edith M. Koromah

Dear ,[This " " guy has been turning up a lot, lately.]

I have to contact you immediately for your assistance as our overseas partner to handle this great business transaction. I know you may consider this transaction as strange since we have not met ourselves personally before. [Speak for yourself, Musa. I've met myselves plenty of times before. PERSONALLY.] I got your email on the net while searching for a reliable partner who can assist me on this project

My business proposal is that we need you or your company to receive the sum of USD$18.500.000 ( Eighteen million five hundred thousand UNITED STATES OF AMERICAN DOLLARS ONLY) .

This money is part of the huge amount of funds left behind by General Sani Abacha, Nigeria late Head of stat es who died sometimes in 1998. [Well shit, I die sometimes every year. You don't hear me complaining about it.] You can easily confirm it from the web site stated

(http://news.bbc.co.uk/hi/english/world/africa/newsid_909000/909972)

He kept the money in coded account with a security company in ACCRA GHANA WEST AFRICA.The wife of the late General is the only person who is the signatory and myself as her lawyer. Since the dead in 1998 we kept every thing about it secret to avoid trace by the present Democratic Government. This is the right time to have the funds out because there is no more investigation on the families of the late head of state. If you are interested in helping us , please contact me immediately on this email addres musbra03@yahoo.com Including your telephone and your fax numbers

Thanks,

Dear Beloved in Christ,

It is by the grace of God that I received Christ, (and it is by the grace of Christ that you received God,) knowing the truth and the truth have set me free.Having known the truth, I had no choice than to do what is lawful and right in the sight of God for eternal life and in the sight of man for witness of God´s mercy and glory upon my life. (I think I almost get you, but maybe you could repeat it, using some better words or something.)

I am Mrs Caroline Solange Haafkens (Praise Jesus!) from Netherlands.I am married to Dr.Franklyn Haafkens who worked with Chevron/Texaco in Nigeria for twenty years before he died in the year 2001. (So is he dead or are you married to him? Which is it? HUH!?) We were married for twenty-seven years without a child.

He died during one of the riots in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria.He was held hostage and slain to death by protesting youths of the region. (Fucking hippy liberal protestor kids. When are we going to stop all this slaying of people to death?) Before his death we were both born again christians. (Praise Jesus!)

Since his death I decided not to re-marry.When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of 8.6 million dollars (Eight Million six hundred thousand U.S.Dollars)with a bank in the Netherlands Presently, this money is still with the bank and the management just wrote me as the beneficiary to come forward to receive the money or rather issue a letter of authorisation to somebody to receive it on my behalf if I can not come over.

Presently, I'm with my laptop in a hospital where I have been undergoing treatment for cancer of the lungs. I have since lost my ability to talk and my doctors have told me that I have only a few months to live. (Did Jesus give you cancer of the lungs?) It is my last wish to see that this money is invested the proceed at the end of every year distributed among charity organisation.

I want a person that is God fearing (You gotta fear someone what can throw cancer of the lungs around all willy-nilly.) that will use this money to fund churches,orphanages and widows propagating the word of God and to ensure that the house of God is maintained. (Can't He hire contractors for that? I would think his insurance would cover whatever damages you're worried about. He DOES have insurance on his house, right?)The Bible made us to understand that Blessed is the hand that giveth. I took this decision because i know that there are alot of poor people suffering from different kind of disease and nobody to come to their aid. With God all things are possible. As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the bank. (Yes, please to be giving me to contact of the bank. That is certainly all things that is possible with God.)I will also issue you a letter of authority that will prove you as the new beneficiary of this fund.You will be entitled to 10% of every profit you make in a year.
(Just so we're clear -- that's 10% of EVERY profit I make? You're not just talking about, like, 10% of 25% of every profit I make, right?)
Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated herein. (Oh, yes. Consider yourself assured.)

I await your urgent reply. (Please find urgent reply enclosed.)

Yours in Christ,

Mrs Caroline Solange Haafkens






(A day later I got received the following. I think one of you ladies isn't being 100% honest with me.)



Dear Beloved in Christ,

It is by the grace of God that I received Christ,knowing the truth and the truth have set me free.Having known the truth, I had no choice than to do what is lawful and right in the sight of God for eternal life and in the sight of man for witness of God´s mercy and glory upon my life.

I am the above named person from Kuwait. I am married to Dr. Jerry Jones who worked with Kuwait Embassy in Ivory Coast for nine years before he died in the year 2000.We were married for eleven years without a child. He died after a brief illness that lasted for only four days.

Before his death we were both born again christians.Since his death I decided not to re-marry or get a child outside my matrimonial home which the Bible is against. When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of (Eight Million six hundred thousand U.S.Dollars)with a finance/security company in Europe.

Presently, this money is still with the Security Company and the management just wrote me as the beneficiary to come forward to receive the trunk box of money or rather issue a letter of authorisation to somebody to receive it on my behalf if I can not come over.


Presently, I'm with my laptop in a hospital where I have been undergoing treatment for oesophageal cancer. I have since lost my ability to talk and my doctors have told me that I have only a few weeks to live.

It is my last wish to see this money distributed to victims of the fire outbreak in Australia and other charity organizations. Because relatives and friends have plundered so much of my wealth since my illness, I cannot live with the agony of entrusting this huge responsibility to any of them. Please,I beg you in the name of God to help me collect the deposit and the interest accrued from the company and distribute it accordingly.

I want a person that is God fearing that will use this money to fund churches,orphanages and widows propagating the word of God and to ensure that the house of God is maintained. The Bible made us to understand that Blessed is the hand that giveth.I took this decision because I don't have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are not Christians 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 bosom of the Lord. Exodus 14 VS 14 says that the lord will fight my case and I shall hold my peace. With God all things are possible. As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the Finance/ Security Company in Europe. I will also issue you a letter of authority that will prove you as the new beneficiary of this fund. I want you and the church to always pray for me because the lord is my shephard.

My happiness is that I lived a life of a worthy Christian. whoever that wants to serve the Lord must serve him in spirit and truth. Please always be prayerful all through your life. Any delay in your reply will give me room in sourcing for another person for this same purpose.

Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated herein.

I await you urgent reply.

Yours in Christ,

Mrs Mary Jones
