Subject: 419 new foreign pal (from
XXXXX in South America)
Hello: I am from XXXXX. I heve recived lots of e-mails asking me for
help the to earn millions, with a millionary warranty to me. In an ocassion I
offered my help without profiit, because they needed documents and somethig
so, but they insisted asking money form me, so I quit. It was alway the same
story: because of my second surname and my Internet Public Profile, I was the
most optioned human al over the earth to make this job. I good man called XXXX
(unnusual surname in a non spanish speaking country) died with his whole
family in a car accident. To sender of the e-mail was his attorney and wrote
for asking me to help to get the money the deceased leave in the bank, in
Nigeria, Togo, Ivory Coast, etc. I received lots of these mails, but I finnaly
did read them anymore. But someday I received a very strange e-mail. It was
not from Africa: it was fron U.S.A. A girl called Maris Jeffersson, wanted to
be my friend.... in the second mail she said she loved me and they wanted me
to travel some place I forgot... We wrote each other about a couple of months,
and I quit because a read in the news, this kind of e-mail are sent in orthe
to involve people in white slave traffic. I erase all this
e-mails but yesterday I received another one I send you for you to publish it

AUDITING AND ACCOUNTING UNIT.
REMITTANCE DEPT. INTERNATIONAL BANK OF AFRICA LOME TOGO S.A 13 RUE DU COMMERCE
LOME -TOGO WEST AFRICA.
I am writing following the impressive information about
your profile through the website your capability and reliability to champion
this opportunity. In my department, we discovered an abandoned sum of (TEN
million US dollars). In an account that belongs to one of our foreign
customers who died along with his entire family in APRIL,2000 in a ROAD
Since we got this information about his death, we have been
expecting his next of Kin to come over and claim his money because we can not
release it unless somebody applies for it as next of Kin or relation to the
deceased as indicated in our banking and financial policies but unfortunately
we learnt that his supposed next of kin or relation died along side with him
in the accident leaving no body behind to claim the money. It is therefore
upon this discovery that I and other officials in my department now decided to
make this business proposal to you and release the money to you as the next of
kin or relation to the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement since
nobody is coming for it and we don t want this money to go into the Bank
treasury as unclaimed bills.
The Banking law and guideline here
stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed after long period, the money
will be transferred into the Bank treasury as unclaimed fund. The request for
a foreigner as next of kin in this business is occasioned by the fact that the
customer was a foreigner and an indegine cannot stand as next of kin to the
deceased family. We agreed that 30% of this money will be for you as foreign
partner, in respect to the provision of a foreign account, 10% will be set
aside for expenses incurred during this transaction and 60 % would be for me
and my colleagues.
Thereafter I and my colleagues will visit your
country for disbursement according to the percentages indicated. Therefore to
enable the immediate transfer of this fund to you as arranged, you must apply
first to the Bank as relation or next of kin of the deceased indicating your
private, telephone and fax number for easy and effective communication and
location where the money will beremitted. Upon receipt of your reply, I will
send to you by fax or e-mail the text of the application.
I will not
fail to bring to your notice that this transaction is 100% hitch free and that
you should not entertain any atom of fear as all required arrangements have
been made for the transfer. You should contact me immediately as soon as you
receive this letter. I decided to contact you as you have products of interest
in your part of the world where we can invest our own percentage to avoid
peoples awareness as we are civil servants. We can conclude this operation
within ten banking days.
Please keep this very confidential. Contact
me for more information, all confirmable before you apply if you want.
May God be with you. Trusting to hear from you shortly. Peace and love
always. Contact me with this email address email@example.com
