To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Investment It is my pleasure to write you this mail. I am writing you from Accra-Ghana in west Africa. I got your contact from journalist while searching for a foreign partner and contact. I am 23 years old and a Sierra Leonia national. I am looking for an overseas business partner/investor to assist me move and invest US$22million,been money which I inherited from my late father. Rebel fighters in Sierra Leone who are fighting for control of diamond mines killed my late father. My late father was a diamond miner/merchant and a senior chief. He was killed together with all members of my family including my brothers, sisters and mother. As a local diamond miner my father was not involved in diamond export but sell his diamond to foreign merchants who make exports. As a result of increasing rebel attacks and war in my country, he moved all his money and other valuables out of my country to Accra- Ghana for safe keeping in a safe keeping company. I am the only surviving member of my family and have inherited the money another valuables. I am now the beneficiary of my father wealth and my plan now is to move all the money out of here to overseas and invest it there, because I do not wish to invest the money here in Africa, because of the unstable political and economic situation in Africa. There are problems making it difficult for me to move the money overseas on my own alone. The problems are as follows: I am under aged just twenty three years old, have never been to overseas before and have no business or private contact overseas, have not get the required business/banking experience and other logistic reasons to handle the big fund alone. These are the reasons why I need a TRUSTWORTHY and RELIABLE PERSON who will come to ACCRA-GHANA, West Africa here to help me. If you can render your total support to me by coming here to assisting me to move this fund/myself to your country. I will offer you best of how much you will want me to give you, as you will also help me to invest the remaining in any viable and lucrative business in your company/country. My telephone number is+233-20-8142916,or email my address. Looking forward to your reply. God bless you.

To: email@example.com Subject: URGENT ASSISTANCE. FROM: MR.MOBUTU ADA JAMES ATTN: THE PRESIDENT/CEO/MANAGING DIRECTOR URGENT ASSISTANCE YOU MAY BE SURPRISE TO RECEIVE THIS LETTER FROM ME SINCE YOU DO NOT KNOW ME PERSONALLY. THE PURPOSE OF MY INTRODUCTION IS THAT I AM MR ADA JAMES THE FIRST SON OF DR. ADA KING WHO WAS RECENTLY MURDERED IN THE LAND DISPUTE IN ZIMBABWE. I WAS FURNISH WITH VIABLE INFORMATION FROM THE WORLD TRADE CENTRE HERE IN AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS AND DECIDED TO WRITE YOU. BEFORE THE DEATH OF MY FATHER, HE HAD TAKEN ME TO JOHANESBURG TO DEPOSITE THE SUM OF FIFTEEN.FIVE MILLION UNITED STATE DOLLARS (US$15.500.00) IN A SECURITY COMPANY THAT MOVE THIS MONEY DIPLOMATICALY TO THE NETHERLANDS, AS IF HE FORESAW THE LOOMING DANGER IN ZIMBABWE. THIS MONEY WAS DEPOSITED IN A BOX AS DIPLOMATIC ITEMS OF HIGH VALUE TO REDUCE THE COST OF TRANSPORTATIONAND TO AVOID MUCH DEMURAGE FROM THE SECURITY COMPANY. THIS AMOUNT WAS MEANT FOR THE PURCHASE OF NEW MACHINES AND CHEMICALS FOR FARMS AND ESTABLISHMENT OF NEW FARM IN SWAZILAND. THIS LAND PROBLEM CAME WHEN ZIMBABWE PRESIDENT MR. ROBERT MUGABE, INTRODUCED A NEW LAND RESOLUTION THAT WHOLLY AFFECTED RICH FARMERS MAINLY WHITE AND SOME FEW BLACK FARMERS. THIS RESULTED TO THE KILLING AND MOB ACTION BY ZIMBABWE WAR VETERANS AND SOME LUNATICS IN THE SOCIETY.INFACT A LOT OF PEOPLE WERE KILLED BECAUSE OF THIS LAND REFORMED PROGRAM WHICH MY FATHER WAS ONE OF THE VICTIMS. IT IS AGAINST THIS BACKGROUND THAT I AM CURRENTLY STAYING IN AMSTERDAM AS A REFUGEE AND TO SEEK FOR A TRUST WORTHY INDIVIDUAL/FIRM TO ADVICE ME IN MAKING THE RIGHTFULL INVESTMENT AS WELL AS TO PROVIDE FOREIGN ACCOUNT(S) WHERE THE FUNDS WILL BE LODGE INTO. SINCE THE LAW OF THE NETHERLANDS PROHIBIT A REFUGEE (ASYLUM SEEKER) TO OPEN ACCOUNT OR TO BE INVOLVED IN ANY FINACIAL TRANSACTION. AS THE ELDEST SON OF MY FATHER, I AM SADDLED WITH THE RESPONSIBILITY OF SEEKING A GENUINE FOREIGN ACCOUNT WHERE THIS MONEY COULD BE TRANSFERRED WITHOUT THE KNOWLEDGE OF MY GOVERNMENT WHO ARE BENT ON TAKING EVERYTHING WE HAVE GOT. I AM FACED WITH THE DILEMA OF INVESTING THIS AMOUNT OF MONEY IN THE NETHERLANDS FOR THE FEAR OF GOING THROUGH THE SAME EXPERIENCE IN FUTURE SINCE BOTH COUNTRIES HAVE SIMILAR HISTORY. MOREOVER, THE NETHERLANDS FOREIGN EXCHANGE POLICY DOES NOT ALLOW SUCH INVESTMENT FROM ASYLUM SEEKERS. AS REGARDS YOUR COMMISSION/REMUNERATION, I AND MY IMMEDIATE FAMILY HAVE DECIDED TO OFFER YOU 25% OF THE TOTAL SUM IMMIDIATELY AFTER WE CLEARED THE CONSIGNMENT FROM THE SECURITY COMPANY VAULT AND ALSO SET ASIDE 5% FOR ALL YOUR EXPENSES (E. I TELEPHONE BILLS, TRAVELLING EXPENSES, HOTEL BILLS AND OTHER MISCELLANEOUS EXPENSES). NOTE: I SHALL COMMIT HALF OF MY SHARE OF THE TOTAL SUM INTO A JOINT VENTURE PROJECT PREFERABLY IN THE PURCHASE OF REAL ESTATE OR OTHER PROFITABLE BUSINESS VENTURE. BE ASSURED THAT YOU STAND NO RISK OF ANY KIND. AS SOON AS I GET YOUR CONSENT, I WILL FURNISH YOU WITH THE DETAILS AND CONTACT OF THE SECURITY COMPANY AND A FACE TO FACE MEETING WILL BE ARRANGE IN ORDER TO KNOW EACH OTHER BETTER. PLEASE. CONTACT ME WITH THE ABOVE TELEPHONE NUMBER OR E-MAIL ADDRESS, WHILE I IMPLORE YOU TO MAINTAIN THE ABSOLUTE SECRECY REQUIRED IN THIS TRANSACTION. YOURS FAITHFULLY, MR. MOBUTU ADA JAMES

Reply-To: email@example.com To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Treat as urgent Dear Friend, I am Mr Jimoh Lawal, Bank Manager of ORIENT BANK OF NIGERIA, Lagos Branch. I have urgent and very confidential business proposition for you and it is carefully explained for your understanding as follows. On June 6 1998, an American oil consultant/contractor with the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, Mr. Barry Kelly made a numbered time account (Fixed)deposit for twelve calendar months, valued at US$25,000,000.00 (Twenty-five Million United States Dollars) in my branch. Upon maturity, I sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but got no reply. After a month, we sent a reminder and finally we discovered from his contract employers, Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation that Mr. Barry Kelly has since died from an automobile accident. On further investigation, I found out that he did not leave a WILL and all attempts to trace his next of kin were fruitless. I therefore made further investigation and discovered that Mr. Barry Kelly did not declare any next of kin in all his official documents, including his Bank Deposit paperwork. This sum of US$25,000,000.00 is still sitting in the Bank and the interest is being rolled over with the principal sum at the end of each year. No one will come forward to claim it. According to the Nigerian Law, at the expiration of 5(five) years, the money will revert to the ownership of the Nigerian Government if nobody applies to claim the funds. Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand in as the next of kin to Mr.Barry Kelly so that the fruits of this old man's labour will not get into the hands of some undeserving and corrupt officials. This is simple, I will like you to provide me immediately with the following; your full names, date and place of birth and complete address with confidential telephone and fax numbers so that the attorney will prepare the necessary documents and affidavits, which will put you in place as the next of kin. We shall employ the services of two attorneys for drafting and notarization of the WILL and obtain the necessary documents and letter of probate/administration in your favor for the transfer. A bank account in any part of the world, which you would provide, will then facilitate the transfer of this money to you as the beneficiary/next of kin. The money will be paid into your account for us to share in the ratio of 60% for me and 40% for you. There is no risk at all as all the paperwork for this transaction will be done by the attorney and my position as the Branch Manager guarantees the successful execution of this transaction. If you are interested, Upon your response, I shall then provide you with more details and relevant documents that will help you understand. Please observe utmost confidentiality, and rest assured that this transaction would be most profitable for both of us because I shall require your assistance to invest my share in your country. Awaiting your urgent reply via e-mail. Thanks and regards Jimoh Lawal

Following the death of my father Gen. Sani Abacha,elections were successfully held in the country and a civilian administration was sworn into power with the assistance of the American Government under the leadership of President Clinton. With the advent of the new Democratic Administration, a decision was taken by the new president of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo to probe and ultimately prosecute all past military officers and their cohorts that served in very strategic capacities in the last military regime of my father.I was among those singled out to to be punished after a makeshift trial,for the supposed deeds of my dad,ever since I have been in detention(the past 3 years). On monday the 24 September 2002,I was released,on the condition that I will release the rest of my fathers money in my care,to the tune of $I.6b,which i agreed. Now I have been released but kept under severe house arrest,I had amassed monies running into hundreds of millions of dollars stashed in various private foreign accounts around the world,most of wish have been frozen. Presently, I am confined under house arrest after my recent release from detention and I am now constrained into seeking for this assistance today because I cannot afford to let this goverment know that I still have funds stashed away. Shortly, before my detention I hurriedly deposited the sum of USD105 million with a security deposit firm for safekeeping,hence my seeking your assistance to receive this fund. I have since had this amount stashed away in a private security company in Spain. I cannot send this money to any of my Bank Account abroad for reasons mentioned earlier. I hereby seek your assistance in moving and securing this money in your account abroad. I will adequately compensate you with 15% of the total sum for your assistance and co-operation with me to move this fund to your account for safe keeping where I can easily utilise it. The present administration has beamed their search light on any body remotely related to me and my family and you strongly know for certain that I am under surveillance and I cannot operate any of my bank accounts any more, due to their being frozen. I intend to safe guard and invest this amount of money abroad, but with a reliable foreign business partner so that we can invest the funds in doing business in your country. That is why I am soliciting your assistance and cooperation as regards this business.Arrangements are being concluded with the Security Company which has branches in Europe to receive the money in cash. I cannot tell the full story of my predicament on this letter. However you can get more information by checking the following web links. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/africa/741506.stm http://allafrica.com/stories/200010230279.html http://:allafrica.com/stories/200012070247.html http://www.lagos-online.com/fg_details_loot_from_abacha.htm Please note that I have a relocation plans for me and my family immediately you have cleared and received this funds in your account. Please indicate your willingness to assist me by sending to me the following information, your company name and address,your private phone and fax numbers so that I can contact you and commence the transaction in earnest. I am waiting to hear from you very soon.

TEL/FAX: 234 1 759 0379. E-MAIL:firstname.lastname@example.org BUSINESS PROPOSAL ATTN: PRESIDENT/CEO, My name is DOTUN MANUEL (MNIM). , a member of the Presidential Task Force on Oil Spillage Clean-up. Early last year there was a major oil spillage in the Niger Delta Region of Nigeria which rendered over 70% of the communities homeless.The contract was handled by a foreign firm but because of the huge monetary profit we envisaged we decided to over-invoice the contract sum. Now the contract has been completed and the original contractor has since been paid,but the contract balance of US$38 million,which resulted from the over invoiced contract sum that has been left in a suspense account with the CENTRAL BANK of NIGERIA,is what me and my partners are planning to take out of the country for ourselves.The problem is as government officials,we are not suppose to own fat bank accounts,talk less of having foreign ones. To this end, we are soliciting your assistance as a foreign partner who can assist us and receive this amount into your account. We are ready to share this money with you on the basis of participation. We also have plans to invest part of this money in any viable business in your country under your care,as we are nearing our retirement age. In any case, I received a reference of you/organization from the Nigeria Chambers of Commerce and Industry 'Foreign Trade Division' as a reputable organ that can assist us on this transaction. Please if you accept my proposal do not hesitate to send me a fax on 234 1 759 0379 or send me an e-mail on: email@example.com, so that I can provide you with the basic procedures for the release of the fund. It does not matter whether you or your company does contract project of the nature described here, the assumption is that you won a major contract and subcontracted it to another company, more often than not, big trading companies or individuals of unrelated field win major contracts here in Nigeria and subcontracts same to more specialized firms for execution. BENEFIT: For providing the account where we shall remit this money, you will be entitled to 25% of the entire funds, 70% will be for me and my partners,while 5% has been set aside to cover any expenses that may be incurred by both parties during this transaction, both local and international. Please I enjoin you to handle this transaction with utmost degree of maturity and confidentiality because I am still in active government service with the "NIGERIAN NATIONAL PETROLEUM CORPORATION". If I receive your response on time, this whole transaction could be accomplished within the shortest possible time based on your interest and determination,since the money is already in transit. Please, try to call me up to confirm the receipt of your e-mail.The lines may be busy,but keep trying till you get through. Yours faithfully, DOTUN MANUEL (MNIM).

Good day. I am Dr. Wale Smith, the commissioner of the Nigerian Tourism Development Corporation[NTDC], an affiliate of the Federal Ministry Of Culture and Tourism. In the year 2001 huge sum of money running into millions of United States Dollars was budgeted by my government for the successful hosting of the Miss world beauty pageant for the year 2002, which eventually was held in Alexandra Palace London.The contest originally scheduled for Nigeria was mired in controversy. It sparked off bloody riots in a section of the country forcing the organiser to shift the venue of the event to London .However,before the shift, Cross River State Nigeria hosted the 92 beauty queen during the first stage of the competition. Miss Turkey, AZRA AKIN was eventually crowned the Winner in London. However, in my capacity as the Commisioner of the Nigeria Tourism Development Corporation, and a member of both local organizing committee (LOC) , my colleagues and I in sensitive positions were able to influence the award of the contract, for the supply and installation of some of the equipment that where suppose to have been used for the contest. The contractor who handled these projects agreed to give us 10% of the total contract sum, if we were able to influence the award of the contract in their favour. Other foreign firms bided for this same contract, but we were able to influence the board to award the contract to the firm we had this agreement with. This contract was successfully executed by the firm ,and they have been paid 90% of their total contract sum, remaining the balance of 10% which we never wanted them to collect on our behalf because of the fear that they might not fulfil their promise. It is pertinent to note that, the remaining balance of Eight million,seven hundred thousand united states dollars (US$8,700,000.00) is lying in the suspense account of the First Chartered Bank Lagos, ready for transfer into an oversea account. I have been unanimously mandated to seek for an honest and trustworthy foreign partner who will assist in ensuring the successful transfer of the above sum of money into his Personal/Company account since the Nigerian Code of Conduct Bureau does not permit us to operate a foreign account as public servants. On the successful remittance of the fund (US $8,700,000.00) into your nominated account, for your kind assistance you will be adequately compensated. Be rest assured that, the modalities and logistics towards the successful transfer of this fund have been worked out. All we require from you is your cooperation. This transaction is 100% risk free. We kindly request that you accord it the highest level of secrecy it deserves. Your swift response will be highly appreciated and kindly provide your phone and fax number for further information. Upon your acknowledgement of this proposal, I will forward to you the detailed procedure for this transaction. Note that, this transaction is legal and free from all sorts of risk and trouble. It does not contravene the laws of my country nor any International laws; hence the whole approval for the transfer will be official and legally processed. This transaction will be concluded within five (5) working days if we follow it up and give the serious attention it deserves. Awaiting your prompt response. Best Regards, Dr. Wale Smith.

I am also on a special diplomatic duty in the Nigeria Foreign Office in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Sometime ago, a contract was awarded to a foreign firm in Germany by my committee.

We now desire to transfer this money which is presently in a suspense account of the Central Bank of Nigeria. (CBN) into any overseas account which we expect you to provide for us. For providing the account where we shall remit the money, you will be entitled to 30% of the money, 60% will be for myself and my partners, the remaining 10% would be set aside to settle all expenses incurred by both parties. I would require the following; 1. Bank Name and Address 2. Telephone , Fax Numbers of Bankers 3. Name of Beneficiary/Company Name/Address, Account Number 4. Confidential Telephone & Fax number of Beneficiary. The above information would be used to make formal application as a matter of procedure for the release of the money and onward transfer to the nominated account you would provide. It does not matter whether or not your company does contract projects of this nature described here, the assumption is that your company won the major contract and subcontracted it out to other companies. We have strong and reliable connections and contacts at the apex Bank and the Federal Ministry of Finance and we have no doubt that all this money will be released and transferred if we get a reliable and trust worthy foreign partner to assist us in this mutual/beneficial deal. Therefore, when the business is successfully concluded, we shall through our same connections withdraw all documents used from all the concerned Government Ministries for 100% security. We are civil servants and we will not want to miss this opportunity. Please contact me immediately through my above fax number or (Email;firstname.lastname@example.org) whether or not you are interested in this deal. If you are not, it will enable me scout for another foreign partner to carry out this deal. But where you are interested, send the required documents aforementioned herein without delay, as time is of the essence in this deal. I await your anticipated cooperation and response. Best regards, PRINCE GAIUS OBASEKI (JR).
