Mr. Fred Martins says: "i want you to decease from this so called ABBA ABACHA"
Hello, I am Miss Young. This story is about a man that sends me a picture of Mohammed Abacha instead of his own, and this makes him claim that he is a cousin of Mohammed. Later I find out that he also is involved in other kinds of fraud. Go to the homepage to see more stories.
 

Mohammed Abacha is a son of the former president of Nigeria. His mother, Maryam Abacha, is a well-known figure on the Internet. See my story about her here.

DEAR Miss Young,

I am Mr FRED J MARTINS the only son of late MICHEAL . H. MARTINS the managing Director of DUBE petroleum company in LAGOS I must confess my agitation is real, and my word is my bond, in this proposal. My late father was a petroleum merchant and because of his success in this field also because of his wealth, his business associates in the field was very envy and family friends also were against him.

After death of my mother when she was giving birth in 1984,at that time i was six years old (6yrs), because my father had a great love for me as his only son and I won his confidence because he knows that a day will come when I will have to manage his vast wealth but the relationship painfully did not last.

This is a story that seems fictitious to me but today I am facing the reality of being an orphan who is also being hunted by men of wicked motives since tragedy does not alter fact but fact remains when other hopes have being shattered.

In the year two thousand and two (2002) after my father came back from a meeting he complained of stomach upset he was rushed to the hospital along the line the doctor confirmed that he was poisoned, he died two days later but before his last breath he disclosed to an amount: fifteen million dollars ($15 million) he deposited with a security company, but he informed the company through agreement, that they should not release the fund to me unless I find a foreign partner with which we can do business. It is on this note that I am contacting you, all I needed from you is to furnish me with your bank particulars:

1) Account name
2) Account number
3) Bank address, telephone and fax number For you to assist me transfer this money in your private bank account, the said amount is (fifteen Million Dollars) $15 Million.

I am compensating you with 20 % of the total money amount, now all my hope is banked on you and I really wants to invest this money in your country, were there 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 Chief MARTINS gave me the copies of the certificate of deposit issued to him (BY THE COMPANY) on the date of deposit. I believe that you are able to keep this transaction secret for me because this money is the hope of my life, it is important. Please reply me immediately after you must have gone through my message fill free and make it urgent.

N.B Try and negotiate for me some profitable blue chip investment opportunities which is risk free which I can invest with this money when it is transferred to your account, personally I am interested in estate management and hotel business, please advise me.

Reply me back immediately you receive this message for more explanation. And promise me to be a father considering my situation and not to betray me and also accept me to belong to your family once again I want to have a family.

NB: my late father used me the only son as the beneficiary / next of kin on the day of deposit and also told me to look for a foreign assistant or a foreigner with a legitimate bank Account abroad who will stand as co-beneficiary and partner abroad.

Thanks and God bless
Best regards
Mr FRED J MARTINS.

Freds letter is identical to the letter from William Koffi on www.waronspam.com and from Davis Kahlif on www.spikynorman.dsl.pipex.com.

I reply Fred that I am interested in helping him.

22 BOSTON STREET,CROYDON SURREY,CR0 3ED, LONDON =================================================

I am mr Fred Martins foreign partner. I plan to go to Madrid next week to pick up the consignment. Will that be ok?

Is there anything else that you need to know about me, or that I should bring?

Regards, ...

 

Let us tell Fred about my ordeal in Sct.Petersburg. I also tell him about the scammer Abba Abacha:

Dear Fred,

Sorry for the late answer, but I have just been through the worst week-end in my life. As you know, I was going to Sct. Petersburg, and everything went according to plan until I landed there. I had been chatting with a nice fellow on the plane, and had promised to carry one of his bags through the customs because he was handicappet and we were going to the same hotel. That was a BIG mistake, because I was stopped in the customs, and it turned out that his bag contained drugs. And the man, whose name I didn't have, was nowhere to find. To make a long story short, I was arrested, and was first released when I managed to get in touch with the American Embassy this morning.

It was a surprise for me to hear that you are a cousin of Mohammed Abacha. In fact, I am in contact with your cousin Abba Abacha, that has promised me more that the double of what you are offering me, for helping him to transfer some money. His email address is bar_abb10@myway.com, so now you can have a family reunion.

Please send him my regards. I have contacted Mr Henry Smith at Oversea ..., and I will keep you informed.

I have the certificate of deposit with me but i cannot send it to you untill am sure you are ready to assist me by responding to the attorney's demand so that you can pick up the money this week. How much is $2,830 compared to what you are going to get when you have collected the money?

My dear Fred,

you have to understand my situation. I am sitting in another part of the world. I would really like to help you and believe your story, but you have not been very cooperative so far.

The certificate of deposit that you claim to have, you wont send to me, although that migth be the proof I need in order to finish our business. To be honest, I dont believe that you have the certificate. However, if you present it to me, we will be back in business again.

This new offer (£3,200) is much more than the old ($2,830), so let us change the scene to London:

Dear Mr Smith,

Thank you for your email.

I planned to go to Madrid this morning, for some business, and was hoping to visit your office in Madrid as well. Unfortunately I did not succeed. I was picked up by the dutch police in Shiphol airport and taken for questioning. To make a long story short, the Spanish authorities will not allow me to enter Spain because I was arrested in Sct.Petersburg airport some weeks ago. I suppose it is all this anti-terror stuff, that makes them stop even young girls like me.

I would still like to claim the money, but since I cannot collect it in Spain, could you transport it to London (or Amsterdam)? If you bring it to London, I suggest that I come and collect it sometime within the next 2 weeks. Can that be arranged? I will bring the 3200 you request, and pay for the extra transport to London.

Hope to hear from you soon, ...

WE WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF YOU RECEIVED THE MAIL SENT TO YOU YESTERDAY REGARDING THE CHANGE IN THE RECEIVER'S NAME OF THE MONEY THAT WAS SENT BY LOIUS. THIS IS DUE TO THE FACT THAT THE REMMITANCE DIRECTOR IS PRESENTLY ON LEAVE, WHICH MEANS THAT ALL TRANSACTIONS ON HIS DESK WILL BE HANDLED BY THE PERSONAL ASSISTANCE WHICH I HAVE FORWARDED THE NAME TO YOU YESTERDAY AND A DAY BEFORE THE MONEY WAS SENT. HERE IS THE PERSOANL ASSISTANCE NAME ONCE AGAIN:

NAME: OLADAPO SAMAIYE
ADD: 22 BOSTON STREET,
CROYDON SURREY,
CR0 3ED, LONDON

PLEASE, RECTIFY THIS MISTAKE SO THAT WE CAN RECEIVE THE MONEY TODAY AND COMMENCE WITH THE ADMINISTRATIVE WORKS IMMEDIATELY BEFORE YOUR ARRIVAL TO LONDON FOR THE PICK UP OF YOUR MONEY .

ENDEAVOUR TO MAIL US THE WESTERN UNION MONEY TRANSFER TEST QUESTION AND ANSWER AND ALSO THE MTCN.

YOU ARE TO BOOK YOUR FLIGHT FOR NEXT WEEK SO THAT WE WOULD HAVE TAKEN CARE OF ALL THE ADMINISTARTIVE WORKS BEFORE YOUR ARRIVAL TO LONDON THIS IS TO AVOID YOU BEING DELAYED IN CLAIMING YOUR MONEY WHEN YOU ARRIVE LONDON. ALSO EMAIL US YOUR FLIGHT DETAILS SO THAT WE CAN COME PICK YOU UP FROM HEATHROW AIRPORT.

WE ARE VERY SORRY FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE THIS MUST HAVE CAUSED YOU. PLEASE, BEAR WITH US.

THE DESK OF HENRY SMITH.

 

Henry has changed the name of the personal assistant. I dont like that:

Dear Mr Smith,

I dont like the tone in your mail. Dont blame me for your errors. How was I to know that you sent your director on leave? Call him back from leave if that is the problem!

How many personal assistents does he have? You have given me 2 different names! Which one is the correct, or is there another assistant?

I have a problem in paying 3200 once more. I cant raise that much with a short notice. I contacted WU, but they could not pay the first 3200 back.

I dont know what to do now. What do you suggest?

Regards, ...

WE ARE VERY SORRY FOR THE MIX UP. THE REMMITANCE DIRECTOR IS OUT OF UNITED KINGDOM AND HE HAS ONLY ONE PERSONAL ASSISTANCE THAT COULD CARRY ON THE TRANSACTIONS ON HIS DESK, THE TWO NAMES THAT WERE EMAILED TO YOU IS THE SAME PERSON JUST THAT THE FIRST ONE WAS A SHORT FORM OF HER NAME WHILE THIS IS THE FULL NAME AS IT IS ON HER PASSPORT.

THIS IS A VERY LITTLE ISSUE , I WANT LOIUS TO CALL WESTERN UNION OFFICE WHERE THE MONEY WAS SENT FROM AND TELL THEM TO CHANGE THE RECEIVER'S NAME TO THE NAME BELOW AND THAT'S ALL YOU HAVE TO DO, YOU DON'T HAVE TO PAY ANY MONEY TO DO THIS.

NAME: OLADAPO SAMAIYE

ENDEAVOUR TO EMAIL US THE WESTERN UNION MONEY TRANSFER TEST QUESTION AND ANSWER AND ALSO THE MTCN AS WE LOOK FORWARD TO MEETING YOU SOONEST, PLEASE ACCEPT OUR APPOLOGY.

THE DESK OF HENRY SMITH.

 

Dear Henry,

I am also sorry for your mixup of names. I had Louis call WU again, and I think you have a serious problem. WU told him that the 3200 had been collected yesterday. Are you trying to make a fool of me? - or has your director stolen the money?

Anyway, now it is time for you to keep your part of our deal. I am coming to London to collect the money. Please tell me how soon you can arrange a meeting, so that I can book a plane.

Now that we are going to meet, I have attached my picture. Will you send me yours, so I know how my business partner look?

Hope to hear from you soon, ...

FIRST AND FOREMOST, THE REMITANCE DIRECTOR HAS BEEN OUT OF UNITED KINGDOM FOR ABOUT 2WEEKS NOW SO I DON'T SEE HIM CLAIMING THE MONEY BECAUSE HE HAS NOT BEEN AROUND AND HE HAS NO ACCESS TO THIS EMAIL BOX.

IF YOU ARE SERIOUS ABOUT CLAIMING YOUR MONEY, MAKE SURE YOU SEND THE 3,200 POUNDS TODAY PRIOR TO YOUR ARRIVAL TO LONDON OR ELSE YOU WOULD BE ASKED TO PROVIDE THE CERTIFICATE OF DEPOSIT AND CHANGE OF BENEFICIARY BEFORE YOUR MONEY ($15 MILLION) WILL BE GIVEN TO YOU.

I THOUGHT I WAS TRYING TO HELP YOU BUT NOW I FEEL YOU ARE TAKING ME FOR A FOOL BECAUSE NO ONE IN THIS OFFICE CLAIMED THE MONEY YOU CLAIMED YOU SENT, IN SHORT I DON'T BELIEVE YOU SENT ANY MONEY.

I WOULD ADVISE YOU SEND THE MONEY TODAY BY YOURSELF IN THE NAME OF THE REMITANCE PERSONAL ASSISTANCE (OLADAPO SAMAIYE) AS SOON AS POSSIBLE THEN I'LL BE ABLE TO GIVE YOU A DATE TO BOOK YOUR FLIGHT TICKET. I AWAIT YOUR IMMEDIATE RESPONSE.

Dear Miss Young,

I have been denied access from my other mail box so from now on you should disregard the mails from my other mail box.

You think you are too smart? You went behind me to try get my money from OVERSEA CREDIT COMM. and you thought it was going to work out with the documents? If you can send part of the money let the barrister commence with the preparation of the CHANGE OF BENEFICIARY since i have in my possession the CERTIFICATE OF DEPOSIT so that i can post both documents to you in hard copies. Reply ASAP.

Dear Fred,

Nice to hear from you again. I hope they havent closed down your new mailbox yet.

Sorry about my affair with Oversea. It costed me 3200, so I am rather low on cash right now. If we continue our business, how much should I send to the Barrister?

Dear Miss Young,

I just received your email, The barrister is still willing to assist us in the preparation for the CHANGE OF BENEFICIARY but he said that he will commence after he has gotten an advance payment on $1,850. This is his contact details so that you can reach him for confirmation:

BARRISTER GABRIEL FALANA
G.G. FALANA LAWFIRM & CO
124 ALLEN AVENUE
LAGOS - NIGERIA.
EMAIL: attorney_2000@lawyer.com

I would like to know how soon you can come up with the advance fee so that you send the money to his cashier for him to commence the preparation and he said that it will take two working days. I await your immediate response.

Regards,
Fred Martins.

 

Let us ask the Barrister if half of the advance payment is ok:

Sir,
Mr Fred Martins has informed me that you are willing to prepare the CHANGE OF BENEFICIARY if I send you an advance payment. As I am on a business travel to Lome at the moment, my access to cash is rather limited. When I return to the states, I can pay you the rest. Will it be alright to send you $900 now, in order to get the CHANGE OF BENEFICIARY put together?
Sincerely yours, ...

The Barrister does not answer, but Fred does (from his old email address):

Dear Miss Young,

How are you doing? I spoke with Barrister Gabriel Falana and he told that he will be going for a christmas break with his family to America soon. Please, try and send him the advance payment so he can commence with the preparation of the CHANGE OF BENEFICIARY for him to be able to conclude with us before he travels.

I hope the business trip you went for was successful? Do you mind if i ask what business you are involved in Africa?

My dear, i don't want you to stress yourself so mail me back after your sleep. Take care.

This has lasted long enough. I search for his IP-address on the Internet, and find other scam-letters sent from his IP-address, as well as other types of fraud. The latest was only 2 days old. Let us try to scare him off with FBI.

Dearest Fred,

I was contacted by FBI early this morning. They were investigating some kind of international fraud. I dont think they suspect me for anything, at least that is what they told me. They asked me about the names Soga Jones, George Egwu, Samson James, Opeyemi Oladepo Samson, Andrew Adams and the telephone numbers 234-8037161983, 234-17757106 and 234-8037161983. I told them that I didnt know any of these. The telephonenumbers are Nigerian, so maybe you recognize some of the names or numbers?

This worries me, and I think we should be very careful in our business. I dont want FBI to interfere.

Yours, ...

My dear Fred,

It pleases me to hear that you are not connected to any of those criminals. I forwarded that information to FBI when they called me again this morning.

My previous mail was sent from Dr. Falana's Office after i met him at his chambers to beg him to accept the $900 as an advance payment. He told me that he will be traveling sometime next week so we have to be very quick about the CHANGE OF BENEFICIARY, I want you to send him the money as soon as possible so that we can get done with that and move ahead. Please, don't get yourself into any trouble. I await your response.

Then I send this to Fred:

Dear Fred,

Thank you for caring. I dont know why FBI asks me all these questions. Strange thing have been happening since I was arrested in Sct. Petersburg some weeks ago. I dont know that I have done anything illegal, but maybe they think that my business with africans countries is suspicious.

Dear Friend,  

I am Elvis Farms the only son of late Paul Farms the managing Director of DUBE petroleum company in Cotonu capital city of Benin I must confess my agitation is real, and my words is my bond, in this proposal. 

My late father was a petroleum marchant and because of his sucess in this field also because his wealth, his business associate in the field was very envy and family friend also was against him.  

After death of my mother when she was giving birth in 1985, when i was two years old(2yrs) because these my father has a great love for me.as his only son my confides a lot in me because he know that a day will come when i have manage his vast wealth but the relationship painfuly did not last. 

This is a story that seems like a fiction to me but today i am facing the reality of being an orphan who is also being hunted by men of wicked principles hence tragidy does not alter fact but fact remains when other hopes has being shatterd. 

On the year two thousand (2004yr) after my father came back from a meeting he was complainig of stomach upset he was rushed to the hospital along the line the doctor comfirmed that he was poisend,he died two days later but before his last breath he disclosed to an amount fifteen million dollars($15 million) he deposited with a bank here in Benin.it is on this note that I am contacting you, all I needed from you is to furnish me with your bank particulars:
1) Account name
2) Account number
3) Bank address, telephone and fax number For you to assist me transfer this money in your private bank account, the said amount is (fifteen Million Dollars) $15 Million. 

I am compensating you with 15 % of the total money
amount, now all my hope is banked on you and I really wants to invest this money in your country, were there is stability of Government, political andeconomic welfare.
Honestly I want you to believe that this transaction is real and never a joke.
My late father Chief FARMS gave me the photocopies of the certificate of deposit issued to him by the (BANK) on the date of deposit,for you to be clarify because, I do not expose my self 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, it is important. 

Please reply me immediately after you must have gone through my message fill free and make it urgent. That is the reason why I offered you 15 % of the total money amount, and in case of any other necessary expenses you might incur during this transaction. 

N.B Try and negotiate for me some profitable blue chip investment opportunities which is risky free which I can invest with this money when it is transferred to your account, personally I am interested in estate management and hotel business, please advise me.
Reply me back immediately you receive this message formore explanation.
And promisse me to be a father considering my situationan and not to betray me and also accept me to belong to your family once again i want to have a family. 

NB: my late father used me the only son as the
beneficiary / next of kin on the day of deposit and also told me to look for a foreign assistant or a foreigner with a legitimate bank Account abroad who will stand as co-beneficiary and partner abroad. 

Thanks and God bless
Best regards 

Elvis Farms.
