From time to time I receive these mails in my Yahoo account.

It is amusing to read the kind of efforts these *mostly* African scammers do. You must give them credit for being persistent. Some of these looks like the real-deal, but most are written in such stupid manner that you will know it is a scam right away with all those bad spelling.

But some people actually fall for these scams. I remember  one time when i was operating an internet cafe in Cagayan de Oro – OZARKS -, a client asked me to print an attachment from a purported Togo bank official sending her a scanned certificate of ownership of shares in a bank deposit worth 10 million USD, for serving as a ‘bank conduit’ to channel a supposed-unclaimed deposit.

The documents looks authentic with all those wax seal, stamps and official sounding bank names and titles.

I was aghast to learn that the woman actually deposited 500 US dollars to the African’s bank account as advance payment, that is why she was sent that certificate.

When i explained to the poor woman that she had been scammed, she just looked at me dazed and turned white. I felt sorry for bringing the bad news, but she could get deeper into trouble if i did not break her fantasy.  Greed, that is the common denominator of people falling into these scams.

 There was a time when CNN featured the infamous Nigerian 419 scams. They showed footage of a typical Nigerian internet cafe where almost everyone is sending scam email. They have a syndicate which buys bulk email addresses from somebody in the internet, and then pays some guys to send email everyday. Of course the Nigerians were offended. They said it is not their fault that Americans, for one, fell for the scam. Them were just greedy. Another one said that because America and rest of the world came to Nigeria and stole their natural resources, scamming is their way of getting back at them.

Nigerian 419 scams are not limited online. If you go to Nigeria, almost every houses and buildings put signs that read “Beware of 419 scam, this house/building is NOT for sale.”

Well, at least they did not deny that plenty of Africans or Nigerians are indeed doing the scamming.

Below are selected scam emails i received so far.

This first one deviates from usual scam. The author omitted the country and the story of how he got the money to share. The others scam are job offers, Lottery scams, and the usual somebody-died-and-left-huge-amount-of-deposit kind of scam.

Hello,

My name is Mr. George Duke; I am a retired dormant account manager at a Branch of Barclays Bank in UK . While I was browsing ( before my retirement ) through some of the accounts that are on hold in our database for more than 12 months, I noticed an account with a name as yours. This account has a pending $1,950,000,00 USD transfer that has never been picked up for 2 years. But I have immediately placed it under suspense/awaiting account with open beneficiary to be picked up via Canada or any of our Diplomatic corresponding payment offices including Dubai. All arrangements have been made so I have applied for foreign beneficiary form B release which was approved for fund claim.

 Here is my proposition: I have obtained the approval for international certificate (British Judiciary Clearance) that will be notarized in your name for the fund release.

 Treat as urgent and confidential if interested.

1. A valid ID card/License number as my security for my money (share).

2. A letter sent to me via my private email that states you will indeed send me my share after you take your share of $950,000.00.

3. Full name, address and telephone number.

My dear,

I know this mail will come to you as a surprise, but my gratitude to ALMIGHTY GOD, you are the chosen one , to help us out of our current condition and i believe you will be blessed as you do it AMEN.
 
I AM MRS MARY JOACHIM, CATHOLIC DEVOTED widow , from GUINEA BISUA, a small in population country in WEST AFRICA, presently based in COTONOU BENIN REPUBLIC, where am living as a poor refugee.
 
My reason of absconding to cotonou, which was done by the help of men that operate fishing trawllers, is because of the brutal killing of my late husband, who was a big time fishing magnate, by his kinsmen, because of a scramble for kingship stool in our native clan, after the death of his late father who was the clan king.
 
As a result of my husband brutal death, i was forced to ran away with my only surviving daughter, who is 8years old, because of his wicked kinsmen, that started looting and destroying his belongings and his entire family member, which caused to the death of the lost of lives of my three children.
 
My aim of contacting you, is to assist  me to secure the claim of the only thing left behind by my late husband which i can lay my hands on, which is the sum amounted US$5.2 million that according to the documents i discorvered in my husband room, was cleverly concealed in a trunk box and deposited in the vault of a private company in Europe.
 
 
I will be given you the details on how to get it done as soon as i receive your accecptance to assist me out of this problem.
looking forward to hearing from you soonest.
 
Thanks and God bless you.
Your’s Sincerely.

( MAY HIS SOUL REST IN PERFECT PEACE ) Though his sudden death was linked or rather suspected to have been masterminded by an uncle of his who travelled with him at that time. Please, I want your understanding and get back to me as soon as possible then I will send you my picture and the details of the transaction.

The truth is that My mother died when I was just  4 years old,and since then my father took me so special. Before his death on Febuary 12th  2005 my father called me beside his bed in the hospital and told me that he deposited SEVEN MILLION,FIVE HUNDRED UNITED STATES DOLLARS ( USD $7.5,million ) in a suspence account in one of the leading bank in Abidjan the capaital city of Cote d’Ivoire  and now I have located the bank .

He further told me that he used my name as MISS JOY WILLIAMS JOHN as the next of kin,and finally issued a written instruction to me and told me to look for a some body good from your country who will help me transfer and recieve the fund in your country and invest it in your country into a good business and now I have choosen you to help me and my father also submitted all the necessary documents of the fund to me with the address of the BANK ,all is with me and now I need your assistance.
 
I am 21 years old girl and a university undergraduate and really don’t know what to do now .I want your assistance to help me transfer and recieve the fund in your account for investments puposes in your country. This is because I have suffered a lot of set backs as a result of incessant political crisis here in Ivory coast.The death of my father actually brought sorrow to my life. I am in a sincere desire of your humble assistance in this regards.Your suggestions and ideas will be highly needed please.

What percentage of the total amount in question will be good for you after the money been transferred into your account?

as my condition of life is now I don’t want to contact any body or else they will cheat or betray  me with the fund , feeling that i,m a small girl and a premitive into investments, please I,m fearing of betrayal and that is why I contacted you to help me with all your hearth because of the confidence and trust I have in you.

I,m hoping to hear from you ,Please do respond immediately you recieve this mail for more informations regarding the transfer.
