My Name is Ferdinand Messan. I worked with the
Late President Gnassingbe Eyadema of Togo before
his death February 2005. I was one of his
personal Aides. Unfortunately, after his death,
I was one of those who fell out of favor with
his son, Faure Gnassigbe who took his place as
the President of The Republic of Togo. I am at
the moment unemployed.
I am contacting you because I have in my
possession some documents and information that
may be useful to you and I.
Before the death of the president, sometime in
the year 2003, I helped him carry out an
assignment that involved the shipping of some
hard currencies out of the country. I am the
only one who is aware of this move. I have the
relevant document that will enable me take over
the money in my possession. I wish to share more
information on this matter with you and will
require your assistance in taking the box
containing these currencies out of its present
location. I assure you that your assistance in
this matter will not be overlooked.
I also wish to seize this opportunity to let you
know that I will like you to keep this
information and some others I shall be giving
you in the nearest future secret and
I will give you further details upon receipt of
a favorable response from you.
Looking forward to your urgent response to this
If you received a similar letter, please ignore it. Do not answer it.
If you do, you will end up on more of the mailing lists used by the
criminals behind this fraud. Read more....
