Compensation letters.

A scammer often fails in making his victim pay him money. The victim might be tempted by the promised millions, and maybe he payed a few fees, but gave up because he started to doubt, or did not have the requested money. In that situation, the scammer will wait a while, and then send a "compensation letter". He will tell that he was sorry the old deal could not be completed, but he managed to do it with another partner. As a compensation for all the work the victim did he offers the victim a big reward.

This story is also all lies, and it is just the start of a new scam. The money offered as compensation does not exist, and the scammers will use the same tricks to get the victims to pay one fee after another.

If you receive such a letter, simply ignore it.

Here are some of the compensation letters I have received recently:

This looks very impressive, but the letter was NOT sent from ECOBANK, and the documents are fake. After contacting the real ECOBANK, they gave the following answer:


From: "ECOBANK GROUP" <ecobank @ ecobank.com>
Subject: RE: Ecobank Contact Form
Date: Tue, 22 May 2007

Dear Sir / Madam

We have been receiving a number of mails from people who claim that they have been contacted by certain unscrupulous people posing as Ecobank staff .These unscrupulous people promise their intended victims financial rewards for allowing their accounts to be used for remittances from Ecobank accounts purportedly held by deceased third parties, or from looted public funds or proceeds from lottery.

These victims are promised a percentage of the funds purportedly held in fictitious accounts of the Ecobank Group and are requested to pay certain preliminary fee or charge for processing the transaction. As soon as these preliminary fees are paid, the fraudsters discontinue any correspondence with their victims.

Take notice that these unscrupulous people are neither members of staff nor agents of the Ecobank Group. They are fraudsters who belong to syndicates all over the world.

Ecobank Group and the members of its staff do not transfer to third parties monies belonging to its customers without the prior instruction of the said customers.

The authentic website of Ecobank is www.ecobank.com and all email addresses of staff of Ecobank are hosted on ecobank.com. Any email address from a purported staff of Ecobank that is not in the above format is not a genuine address.

Recipients of such mails are advised to carefully check their facts before making payments to unknown third parties.

Consequently, no member or staff of the Ecobank Group shall be held responsible for payments made by fraudsters posing as members of the Ecobank Group.

We hope this information is useful to you.
