Another Nigerian scam letter. They suck you into providing them with expense money to transfer the dough, and nothing ever arrives. Sometimes they try to get your bank details "to transfer the money" and bang goes your bank account.

Some mugs have been done for millions.

How Nigereian dead-relative scams work at TruthorFiction.com.

I get 3 or more of these a day. One of the funniest:
"DEAR RESPECTFUL ONE,
PERMIT ME TO INFORM YOU OF MY DESIRE OF GOING INTO A RELATIONSHIP WITH YOU. I GOT YOUR CONTACT FROM THE INTERNET WEDSITE. I PRAYED OVER IT AND SELECTED YOUR NAME AMONG OTHER NAMES DUE TO IT'S ESTEEMING NATURE AND THE RECOMMENDATIONS GIVEN TO ME AS A REPUTABLE AND TRUSTWORTHY PERSON I CAN DO SOMETHING WITH AND BY THEIR RECOMMENDATIONS I MUST NOT HESITATE TO CONFIDE IN YOU FOR THIS SIMPLE AND SINCERE BUSINESS."
[--yeesh!]

They hook you, and right before they send the money, ask you to plonk down a wad of cash for some reason. Sounds reasonable, right? You only have to deposite a few thousand to get 5 million. Of course, they just take your money and run.

Watch out for the "You have won a gazillion dollars in the whatever lottery" ones. Same scam, different setting.

The contract was supposed to be awarded to two foreign contractors to the tune of US$100,000,000.00 (One hundred Million United States Dollars). But in the course of negotiation, the contract was awarded to a Bulgarian contractor at the cost of US$115,500,000.00 (One hundred and Forty-nine Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars)to my benefit unknown to the contractor. This contract has been satisfactorily executed and inspected as the Bulgarian firm is presently securing payment from my Ministry, where our Board is in-charge of all foreign contract payment approval.

As a civil servant still in active government service, I am forbidden by law to operate an account outside the shores of Zambia. Hence this message to you seeking your assistance so as to enable me present your private/company account details as a beneficiary of contractual claims alongside that of the Bulgarian contractor, to enable me transfer the difference of US$15,500,000.00(Fifteen Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) into your provided account.

On actualization, the fund will be disbursed as stated below.

20% for you and 80% for us.

What We request from you.

register the company.

2, Your address, tel, fax and cell phone numbers.

Here is a the scam letter I got. Check it out, I think they are getting better.

"Dear,

I am Barrister Joseph Adams, a solicitor at law,
personal attoney to Mr.P.B W!@#%#@#$$ington,a national Of
your country,who used to work with Shell Development
Company in Lome Togo. Here in after shall be referred
to as my client. On the 21st of April 2000, my
client,his wife and their only daughter were involved
in a car accident along Nouvissi express Road.

All occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost their
lives. Since then I have made several enquiries to
your embassy here to locate any of my clients extended relatives, this has also proved unsuccessful.

After these several unsuccessful attempts to locate
his real relatives,I decided to contact you since you
have the same last name with my late client. I have
contacted you to assist in repartrating the fund
valued at US$8.5 million left behind by my client
before it gets confisicated or declared unserviceable
by the Security Finance Firm where this huge amount
were deposited.

The said Security Finance Company has issued me a
notice to provide the next of kin or have his account confisicated within the next twenty one official working days. Since I have been unsuccesfull in locating the relatives for over 2years now, I seek the consent to present you as the next of kin to the deceased since you have the same last names, so that the proceeds of this account can be paid to you.

Therefore, on receipt of your positive response, we
shall then discuss the sharing ratio and modalities
for transfer.I have all necessary information and
legal documents needed to back you up for claim.

All I require from you is your honest cooperation to
enable us see this transaction through.

I guarantee that this will be executed under
legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any
breach of the law.

I await your urgent respond.

Barr. Joseph Adams,"

The follow up email is below.:

"Dear friend,

How are you doing? Thank you for your prompt response.
The contents were understood and I consider it
expedient to give you the details of this transaction.
This transaction is legitimate and in essence it will
undergo normal procedures as stipulated in the
financial and allied matters act and all legal
documents will be issued in your name. I contacted you
because you share the same last name with Mr. Patrick
B. Woolbright (blessed memory)and so you can lay
claims
to this huge amount he left behind as his next of kin.


Late Mr. Patrick B. W@!@#!ington was born in 1944. He
worked with Shell Petroleum Company as an engineer
and later retired to private practice as a consultant
and formed an oil sevicing company. He operated an
account with Standard Finance Bank Lome-Togo until his
death in an auto accident on 21st April, 2000 along
with this wife and their only daughter ( May their
souls rest in peace).

You must understand that in the banking industry
chances or opportunities like this are common but not
heard. People put their monies in banks and some of
these accounts are either coded or confidentially operated,therefore, when such people die what do you think that happens to these monies when nobody comes for their claims? Well, this is one of the numerous avenues good "free" monies are made within and amongst bankers. I did not mastermind my client's death and I did not operate or manage his account but I was his personal attorney so was privy to his transaction with the bank.

Now be advised my friend that in line with my
operational master plan for the success of this our
mutual benefit business, what you are required to do
now is to tender an application to the bank as next of
kin to this deceased customer putting claim over his
balance with the bank. This application will be
written and then faxed to the bank for immediate
action and processing to start.

As soon as they receive this application,
documentation for the claim will automatically start.
It will be tendered to the board of directors of the
bank for approval. As soon as the approval is
obtained, you will be issued an approval letter,
approving your application as the next of kin/sole
beneficiary to the deceased. Business starts from
there. You will also notify the bank in your
application that you wish your deceased cousin's
fund inherited and transferred into your designated
account as you will state in the application.

For being involve in this transaction, I have
therefore resolved to offer you 35% of the total sum
as gratification in helping me champion this business.
60% will be for myself while 5% will be used to take
care of the settlement of all expenses that might come
up in the course of this transaction as soon as the
fund is into your bank account. Please, understand
that I put so many things into consideration before
offering you this 35% and I do hope that it will be appreciated.

I have in my possession certificate of deposit and
death certificate which are the requirements for the
claim.

As soon as you give me your hands of co-operation, I
will send to you the specimen of the text of
application you will send to the bank and the
transaction will commence immediately and the deposit
and death certificates of my late client for your
reference. Please note that this transaction requires
utmost trust,sincerity and confidentiality for its
conclusion.

You can always reach me on my direct phone number:
+228-929 2522.

I await your prompt reply and reply via the above
email address henceforth.

Best Regards,
Barrister Joseph Adams

I've been getting these for awhile, finally I decided to reply. All last names have been changed to Idiot - since that's really what (s)he think I am. Included is my reply email. If they are dumb enough to send me more mail, I will post it.

From: Barrister ELVIS NATAKU ESQ,
Alternative E-mail addresses;
elvis_nataku@freemail.net.ru

Dear Idiot,

My name is ELVIS NATAKU ESQ, a legal practitioner. I was the personal attorney to Mr. Peter Idiot, a national of your country who used to work with one of the leading oil companies in Nigeria. He was also an undercover financial consultant to the former Military leaders of this country whom he assisted in transferring money abroad. Before his death in the year 2000 [my client, his wife and their three children were involved in a ghastly car accident along Lagos/Ibadan express road in which all occupants of the car died}, my client (Peter) deposited the sum of $12m in a local Finance & Security Company here in Nigeria for himself, with the hope of transferring same to his country as soon as he is on leave. Since his death I have made several enquiries to your embassy to locate any of my clients extended relatives, this has also proved unsuccessful.

After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to trace his last name over the Internet, to locate any member of his family hence I contacted you. I have contacted you to assist in repatriating the money and property left behind by my client before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable by the local Bank where this huge Deposit were lodged. Presently, the local Finance & Security Company where the deceased had an account valued at about 12 million dollars has issued me a notice to provide the next of kin of my late client or have the account confiscated within the next twenty-one (21days) working days. Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives, I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased since you have the same family name so that the proceeds of this account valued at 12 million dollars can be paid to you and then you and me can share the money. 60% for me and 40% for you.

I have all necessary legal documents that can be used to back up any claim we may make. All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us see this deal through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law, therefore indicate your interest and willingness over this business by furnishing me with your personal contact telephone and fax numbers, indicate your age, occupation, your country of origin, and your full name, all this information will be needed to arrange a text of the application you are to submit to the bank directly as the next of kin, so that the bank will arrange for the money transfer into your account undelayed.

Please reply only through my alternative email address: elvis_nataku@freemail.net.ru, to enable us discuss further,and please note that it is very important you send the details of your personal contact tel/fax lines for prompt contact all the time. Be informed that it is necessary for you to keep this deal confidential until the transfer is finally effected to your account.

Best regards,

Barrister ELVIS NATAKU

--Begin my reply email--
Subject: Money for nothing? Sign me up!
Hey buddy, that's cool! I'd like the money spread around seven small swiss banks. Email me the account numbers and pins and I'll sign your application.

BTW – Next time you run a scam try these extra steps to prove yourself more successful –
1)        Register/Park a domain so that you can get a decent email address. African guys named elvis who use free Russian email accounts are a dead giveaway to scamhood
a.        You can probably get a good domain at godaddy.com  If I'm not mistaken you can register a domain for $2. Not a bad return on investment when you're screwing people out of millions. Try something like nataku@natakullc.info
2)        Change your name
a.        I must reiterate - If you're name is really Elvis I am sorry for you. Change it anyway. The only people I've met from Africa have African names. Not African/American hybrids. And certainly not one so dreadful as Elvis. What – are you the king of scams? Try something like Teka Nataku, or even Elvis Presley (if you must).

Have a nice day

Dear Mcginnis,

I am BARRISTER DONALD EKEH, personal attorney and also a close confidant of
{Engr. Pitt Mcginnis}, a national of your country, who also shares same
Surname/Last Name with you. He used to work with one of the major oil
companies in this country, ZENON OIL NIGERIA (PLC).

On the 6th of May, 2002 it was reported to me that my client, his wife and
their children were involved in a Local Plane Crash at Kano State, enroute
Abuja (The Capital City) all occupants in the Plane lost their
lives,unfortunately on this same flight were other dignitaries like the
Sports Minister and a host of others.

Since then I have made several enquiries to your embassy to locate any of
his extended relatives and this has also proved unsuccessful. After these
several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to contact you. I have contacted
you to assist in repatriating the money and property left behind by my
client before they get confiscated or auctioned by the company where he
deposited the sum of US$9.2 million dollars.

The guidelines of this Finance Company stipulates that if such deposit
remained unclaimed for over a period of time 3 years,without the fund
claimed,the said deposit will be confiscated and this will happen after the
next fourteen official working days if nobody comes for the money.

Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over one year
for the deposit and his property,and the company has been notifying the
rotary club regarding this,now I seek your consent to present you as the
next of kin of the deceased so that the proceeds of this deposit valued at
US$9.2 million dollars can be paid to you here or in any of the company's
affiliate office overseas. I have all necessary information and legal
documents needed to back you up for claim.

All I require from you is your honest cooperation to enable us see this
transaction through. I guarantee that this will be executed under legitimate
arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law.

Please contact me on the above email to enable us discuss further.

Best regards,

2.)
Dear Mcginnis,

RE: DETAILS OF PROCEDURE.

Thank you immensely for your response, and the content well noted, Be assured of my commitment to help get out the fund inheritance. I am of the Pentecostal Christian Faith Believer (PCFB). I think on this background we are compatible and can execute this business to the best of our ability and for our mutual benefit, Meanwhile I am a 41years old, married with Four Children.

Please my dear I will not continue to search for his real family or relative since time will not permit me to do so meanwhile his names known to me are Engineer. Pitt Mcginnis, secondly the Finance Company where this fund is deposited has issued so many letters to me as his lawyer to come up with his kin or have the fund confiscated and this is the reason why I contacted you.

This inheritance fund is 100% real and legitimate and not a joke, as you may want to know. What I really need is your total commitment to see that you finally withdraw this fund as the next of kin to my late client, as soon as possible to avoid depositing the fund at the finance company's suspense account as unclaimed fund. Well it might interest you to know that I made an undertaking promise to my late client at the time he was alive that I will continue to assist him in any matter that involves him.

Further more I will want you to carry on with me so that this fund will be released to you as the beneficiary after which I will be visiting you in your Country for any good Investment under your supervision.

In order to commence the processing of the fund approval, I will file in an APPLICATION FOR CLAIM to the Finance Company for release of the fund to you and await their approval. Meanwhile, let us work hard and set everything in motion so that by the time everything will be ready we will have noting to delay us. Please, keep this business within yourself alone for my own security here and for your self to avoid leakage of information.

As soon as I read from you the APPLICATION FOR THE RELEASE of the fund will be submitted to the finance firm immediately for them to establish communication with for the fund transfer.

Awaiting your quick response.

Remain blessed in the Lord.

Barrister Donald Ekeh

A lot of these seem to be getting a decidedly religious flavour lately. I'm afraid their being god-fearing christians doesn't cut too much ice with me - I'm a pagan too. Not to mention a slight problem with me not believing them. (Why Jenny! - how could you be so cynical? :-)


Dearly Beloved

It is by the grace of the Lord that I send you this letter ,Having known
the truth, I had no choice than to do what is lawful and right in
the sight of The Lord for eternal life and in the sight of man for
witness of Gods mercy and glory upon my life.

I am Mrs Melissa Pointer the wife of Mr Harry Pointer, my husband
worked with the Chevron/Texaco in Kenya for Fifteen years before he
died in the year 2001.We were married for ten years without a
child. My Husband died after a brief illness that lasted for only
four days. Before his death we were both born again Christians.

Since his death I decided not to re-marry or get a child outside my
matrimonial home which the Bible is against. When my late husband
was alive he deposited the sum of US $3.5M. (Three Million Five
Hundred Thousand U.S. Dollars) with a Bank in Europe.Presently,
this money is still with the Bank and the management just wrote me
as the beneficiary to come forward to sign for the release of this
money or rather issue a letter of authorization to somebody to
receive it on my behalf if I can not come over.

Presently, I'm in a hospital in Kenya where I have been undergoing
treatment for esophageal cancer. I have since lost my ability to
talk and my doctors have told me that I have only a few weeks to
live. It is my last wish to see this money distributed to charity
organizations any where in the World. Because relatives and friends
have plundered so much of my wealth since my illness, I cannot live
with the agony of entrusting this huge responsibility to any of
them. Please, I beg you in the name of God to help me Stand and
collect the Funds from the Bank.

I want a person that is God fearing that will use this money to fund
churches, orphanages and widows propagating the word of God and to
ensure that the house of God is maintained.It is said that blessed
is the hand that giveth.I took this decision because I don't have
any child that will inherit this money and myhusband relatives are not
Christians and I don't want my husband's hard earned money to be
misused by unbelievers. I don't want a situation where this money will
be used in an ungodly manner.Hence the reason for taking this bold
decision. I am not afraid of deathhence I know where I am going. I
know that I am going to be in the bosom of the Lord.I don't need any
telephone communication in this regard because of my soundless
voice and presence of my husband's relatives around me always.

I don't want them to know about this development. With God all things
are possible.As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the
contact of Attorney who is in Europe as he will be the one to
assist you in laying claims for this funds.

Yours Ever.
Melissa Pointer.
