Dear respectful One

Permit me to inform you of my desire of going into business relationship with you. I know this mail may come to you as a surprise, since we have not known or written before. Introducing myself, I am Miss Cynthia Sankoh, 21 years of age the only daugter of the late Mr and Mrs. Sankoh. My father was a Gold and cocoa merchant based in Accra,Ghana and Abidjan(Ivory Coast), he was poisoned to death by his business associates on one of their business trips.Before the death of my father on 29th June 2001 in a private hospital here in Abidjan. He secretly called me on his bed side and told me that he has a sum of USD$12 M (Twelve Million USD Dollars Only),deposited in a Security and finance company in (Abidjan Cte dIvoire, that he used my name as his only daugter for the next of kin in depositing the fund.

He also explained to me that it was because of this wealth that he was poisoned by his business associates, that I should seek for a foreign partenar here I will transfer this money and use it for investment purpose such as expansion of his existing cocoa business and real estate management here on how best to transfer thismoney to overseas please.He told me that the fund is a trunk box as such the security does not know the contents of the box. I am humbly seeking your assistance in the following ways:

1- To assist me in providing an account of yours where this fund can quietly be transferred into.
2- To serve as the guardian of this fund since I am still in the university.
3- To make arrangement for me to come over to your country to further my education and to help me securea residential permit in your country. Moreover, I am willing to offer you 20% of the total sum as compensation for your effort/input after thesuccessful transfer of this fund into your nominated account overseas, while 5% will be set aside to offset any expenses we may incure.

Furthermore, you can indicate your option towards assisting me as I believe that this transaction would be concluded within the shortest possible time if you signify interest to assist me.
I hope we can be very productive together, trust and confide in one another. Coming from the southern part of Sierra Leone , I was taught English by the British school which i attended. I do not speak french like the Ivorians and this is part of the difficulty I am facing in this country right now. I used to be a part (2) communication arts student in the higher institution before we got affected by the war.

NB : Please contact me immediately you receive this message through this email address if you are interested.God bless.

Since we are going to do business across the continents, I need some kind of proof of your story. Could you give me that??

Dear Miss Young,

I am very happy to receive your message and the picture. I am sorry for writing you very late due to fact that I visited the security company yesterday like I told you to inform that of my readiness to retrieve the consignment out of their custody.

To further assure you that am honest and sincere, I herein enclose in this message the necessary document being the evident documents covering the deposit. While going through the documents, you will surely realize that my late father lodged this consignment on a very special arrangement without letting the security company know the real actual content he deposited in their custody rather he declared it as containing family valuables.

I would have particularly loved, if you would be able to come down to enjoin me in going to the company as this short trip will as well give you the opportunity to see and witness things by yourself because seeing is believing. I know very it is not easy decision for to decide travel to a destination may be she has not been before, especially to an unknown person. But, I sincerely believed that this trip would easily set the path for the foundation of a long lasting business and family relationship amongst us.

I will later send to you my father's death certificate too in my next correspondence. Now I want you now to contact the security company because I had already submitted an application release form in respect of the release. Please to them by the example given below;

My dear friend,

I am very worried for not hearing from you. At least you must be informing me of all development incase you have contacted the security company. Please reply to me.

I need urgent response from you.

Regards and love from,

Cynthia.

 

I answer Cynthia the following day:

Dearest Cynthia,

I am sorry for not keeping you up-to-date. I have contacted both the security company and the lawyer. Both of them sent me a looong email.

This is becomming too complicated for me, so I need your help. I will forward their emails to you, and I would like you to tell me what to do.

I can see that they want us to pay a lot of money. How much can you come up with? Last week-end I travelled to Sct.Petersburg and was arrested because I was stupid enough to carry the bag from a stranger through the customs. It turned out that it contained drugs. Well, the American Embassy got me out of jail in the end, but it meant that I am almost out of cash, and cannot raise more until I go back home to Seattle.

I am in Amsterdam at the moment. I plan to return to home as soon as my business here is finished.

Take care, ...

P.S. Did you send the death certificate that you promised?

Subject: In trust.

Dear miss Young, I am now relaxed for hearing from you. I am shocked to see the cost of getting the necessary document. It is indeed very costly, but the happiest thing in it all is that the lawyer did not charge any fee for his legal representation.

I must confess to you that the document cost is beyond my expectation. However, there is nothing to be done unless seeking how to pay him in order obtain the document for us. For this reason, I have made up to sell a gold jewelry which my late father bought for me a gift when he visited Thailand. I kept this jewelry very special because I refresh my mind with my late father memory. This in fact brings my father to my mind anytime I am wearing the jewelry.

My greatest concern now is that I do not know how much the gold merchants may price the gold since I am selling it as a second-hand value item. I shall be leaving immediately after this message to see what will be the price. I will inform you as soon as I am back because I have no money at hand. I must let you know that it is not interest to sell off the gold but I am doing this because this transaction is of great value than the jewelry. Had it been the fund is in my possession, I would have loved to cherish the treasure since it is a gift from Dad.

The death certificate is intact. I will be sending it to you in the next message. Please if there is anything you can do, please do it to help a friend/sister, take me as part of you.

I am afraid, I may not be able to raise all the needed money as it was never my intention to involve you in any financial contribution in advance to the actualization of this noble transaction.

Waiting to hear from you. You are indeed a very busy person, evidently from the way you travel. I see no reason why you assist a stranger in an airport after hearing about terrorism and drugs cases in eastern Europe. Stop doing so next time.

Love and regards,

Cynthia.

Dear Miss Young,

Here is the death certificate copy. I am disappointed because the highest bidder for the sale of the gold jewelry priced it $690. I am ready to sell it off tomorrow if you assured me that you will help me pay the balance to the lawyer.

if you can, then write to the lawyer to direct you how you will send the fund to him while I will go their office and pay him the $690. I count on you as I have no one here to meet.

Love and regards,
Cynthia.
P.S: keep all the documents i sent to you very confidential while I hope to hear from you.

Instead of paying the big fee to the lawyers, I tell them that I do not trust them:

Re: MISS CYNTHIA SANKOH BUSINESS AFFAIRS ========================================

Sir,
I am sorry that it took so long to answer your mail, but I have received some disturbing news. A friend of mine told me that your firm was involved in "419-fraud". I dont know what that means, but I got worried, and asked him for some kind of proof. He is working on that now.

I think it is most unlikely that he will find anything, since I got your name through ATLANTIC VAULT. But to settle it finally, I would like you to send me your Diploma, or some other proof that you run a legitimate business.

I hope to hear from you soon, so that we can get on with miss Cynthias case.

Dear Miss Young,

Thanks for your mail .Let me tell you I AM the only surviving child of my late parents .I am from Abidjan in Cote d'ivoire.I am 22 years of age and studying economics in the University of Ghana,Legon.Due to the sudden death of my parents,I had to drop from school to enable take care of things very well.I hope to continue with my studies after this transaction is completed. My late father made a deposit with VIGASSISTANCE SECUITRY COMPANY here$8.5 million dollars.

Now due to the political setuation in COTE D' IVOIRE I have asked the director of the security company if they have offices in overseas. He told me that they have offices in the following countries as in UK, SPAIN, HOLLAND, DUBAI

So i want you to stand on my behalf as my new beneficiary to claim the money at there any give office you want .I will give you all the documents needed and the one that the security company gave to my late father.

Secondly, please note that the Security Company does not know that the actual contents of the consignment they are having is real money. They thought that it's Family Valuables and this what my late father used in depositing the consignment with them for security reasons.

Never you tell the Security Company that the actual contents is money because of my security here. This is Africa and a lot of unimaginable things happens here. I could be killed and by then I will loose the whole money.

I will need your opinion on this transaction. As soon as possible to enable me give you the procedure to follow in clearing the consignment from the Collecting Centre of the Security Company.
Please advise if the Attorney will go ahead to prepare the original copies of this draft agreement.Looki will take care of any money that will be needed here.

May God Bless You and your family.

First and foremost and brief self introduction, I am Jannifer Kekou Mathins from Africa, 24years old and the only daughter of my late parents Mr.and Mrs.Robert Kekou. i love music as well, am 5.8 feet tall. Infract as time goes on you will know more about me.

My father was a highly reputable business magnate-(a cocoa merchant)who operated in the capital of Ivory coast during his days. It is sad to say that he passed away mysteriously in France during one of his business trips abroad year 12th.Feb. 2003.Though his sudden death was linked or rather suspected to have been masterminded by an uncle of his who travelled with him at that time. But God knows the truth!

My mother died when I was just 11 years old, and since then my father took me so special. Before his death on February 12 2003 he called the secretary who accompanied him to the hospital and told her that he had a sum of $5.5 million US DOLLARS (five million five hundred thousand USD)deposited in a suspense account with one of the local banks here in Abidjan, Ivory Coast.

He also said he used my name to Deposit the fund with the bank as his only daughter, as well as the next of kin to the fund. He also explained to me that it was because of this wealth that he was poisoned by his business associates, That I should seek for a foreign partner in a country of my choice where I will transfer this money to and use it for investment purposes.

I want you to assist me in clearing this fund into your account overseas as a beneficiary of the fund, and also use it for an investment purpose.

I am just 24 years old and a high school leaving certificate holder and really don't know what to do. Now I want an account overseas where I can transfer this funds. This is because I have suffered a lot of set backs as a result of incessant political crisis here in Ivory Coast. The death of my father actually brought sorrow to my life.
Dearest one, I am in a sincere desire of your humble assistance in this regards Your suggestions and ideas will be highly regarded.

Now permit me to ask these few questions:-
1. Can you honestly help me as a friend?
2. Can I completely trust you?
3. What percentage of the total amount in question will be good for you after the money is in your account?

Please, Consider this and get back to me as soon as possible, as well I will like you to forward your private telephone and fax number if you are willing to have the relevant documents to confirm the existence of the fund for verification from the bank and to confirm the authenticity of my proposal to you also for easy communication.

I think with this i am able to express myself better to you, so let me know what you have for me if you still need me or not, i want it to come from your heart if you accept to assist me and take me as your future partner.

Thank you so much.
My sincere regards,
Miss Jannifer Kekou Mathins.

One month later, September 9, A.P. forwards me a letter identical to the July 7 letter. This time the email address is jennifer777ci@yahoo.com. He answered her and got this reply:

Infact I am ready to depend on your every advise for you have assured me of the safety of this fund when it finaly comes to your care since you can see that this fund is the only thing that my late parents left for me so I do not intend to play with it that is why I have been looking for a trustworthy person who will not betray,deny or sit on the fund when it finaly comes to his or her care and I thank God that I have seen you as a God fearing person whom I can confide this fund to his hand without fear.

I want to ask you for a favour, please can you allow me to be calling you my Darling since I have now taken you as my life partner and can you also take me as your wife and take proper good care of me when I come over your country.The death of my parents has made me to lost all it costs to be happy in this world so I need someone who will take me as his wife so that I can regain my joy again.

I have forward to you,the legal documents that proves the existence of the fund which was issued to my late father by the bank when he deposited the fund and these documents are with my pastor here because he is the only one that is aware of this fund and he is the only one that has been taking care of me since the death of my parents so these documents I send to you because the bank will ask you for them when you will contact them.

Moreover I am ready to marry you as soon as I see your sincerity toward this transaction and I have decided to give you 15% for your assistances,and another 5% has been mapped aside to cover any incident expenses which we might incure during the process of this transaction and please be rest assure that any money you may spend for the purpose of this transaction must be reambused to you from the 5% immediately you received the fund in your account and I am assuring you that this transaction is 100% risk free and will benefit both of us at the end only if we can understand our selves and work with one mind.

I want you to assist me in this transaction is that after you have received the fund in your account,you will send me some money from the 5% so that I can arrange my traveling documents to come over your country to further my education because it is one of the instructions that my late father gave to me before his death that I must further my education through the help of a foreign partner whom I will trust to confide this fund into his or her hand.

If you had read my first mail to you very well,you will understand that my father was the last I lost and he was poissoned to death by his friends/business associates simply because he was making progress in his business and they planed and poissoned him to death and before his death,he gave an outstanding instruction to the bank that the fund must be transfered outside this country before use,this is to make sure that I did not start to make use of the money here so that his enemies will not get at me and I am ready to leave this country now because of the political crises that is why I want you to hasten up so that we can conclude this transaction within a week time for me to leave this country to yours.

As I have explained to you about my situation here so I will like you to keep this transaction very secret and confidential for my own self security reasons.Please in your next mail,do not fail to include your pictures for personal identification and I have built all my confidence in you and for I have seen your sincerity towards helping me out of this situation, now I am enclosing the contact of the bank where the fund was deposited so that you can contact them and introduce yourself to them as my foreign partner whom the fund will be transfer to his account and ask them of their procedure of transfering fund from their bank to an account outside this country.

Dear Miss Young,
 Good Day to you, I have a half-similar story with those scammed person who shared on your website, . As of now,we still have communication. What I am aware is that there are mary BAD people on the internet, I am a business woman so I know the value of work(20% I believe to fast money-like lotto). That time, I am not fully aware of 419 fraud, until one day I receive a letter from a certain BEEBEE DOUKOURE ROCK, promising million dollars,I answered her emails---even told her some personal information including telephone number and cellular. In my mind As we go on ,if she ask money this time I understand that her promise is fake. She gave me information about the security company, send me her picture,So I keep on searching  the internet all about that so called claim until I found your site. I read similar stories(VERY MUCH),same place COTE D'IVOIRE, and thats the time, I got an earlier proff of assurance that she and her million dollars are fake.
With your website, your helping confused people,you are educating them because of the informations,including some messages of scammers(.WHO dont want Millions anyway).
This is why I want to say THANK YOU(not only for me but for those who are not yet aware of it and will be guided by your website)
If you still dont have a list of the name i mentioned, please include  her.If you will publish my letter,she may read it.
