Dear Friend,

My name is Johan, I am an account officer in charge of the private investment section of a bank in the RSA who's name i will unveil later on when I am confident that i can trust you. I have decided to contact you on a business proposal that requires confidentiality, trust and transparency, where both of us stand to gain $15million usd. During my investigation and auditing in the accounts section, my department came across a huge sum of money belonging to a deceased person, a foreigner who died on September 29, 2005 in an auto crash in Bedford, United Kingdom.

This funds has been dormant in his account in the private investment dept without any claim to this fund in our custody from neither any member of his family or close relations. As it might interest you to know, I got your contact through an international business inquiry in my search for a trust worthy business partner that can handle a business of this magnitude. More so, all arrangements to lay claim to this fund in your name as the bonafide next of kin to the deceased, and get the required approval to transfer this money to a foreign account have been put in place.

I must also inform you that upon the completion of this transaction, you will be entitled to 40% for your role and assistance and 40% will also be for me, while the balance 20% will be used to cover for any expenses this transaction must have incurred to have it successful.

Please, I would advise you keep every word read above confidential, as I am still in service and intend to retire after I conclude this project. I will be monitoring the whole situation here until you confirm the money has been transferred and available in your bank account. However, I shall come down to the country of your nominated account for subsequent sharing of the Funds according to the percentages previously indicated and further investment. Be rest assured that this deal is 100% trouble free and all assistance that you will need to make this transaction successfully has been already been arranged. All that is required from you are utmost confidentiality and your swift response to every area of this transaction that you are involved in.

Business proposal scam

From: Gennady Timchenko [gtimchenko @ foxmail.com]

Subject: You & i

Hello dear,

My name is Gennady Timchenko, a Russian Businessman and head of the Volga group here in Russia. I am establishing contact with you because there is a proposal which i wish to bring to your attention, with the hope that it would interest you.

You are aware of the current crisis within Russia and Ukraine over a portion of Ukraine called Crimea which voted in referendum and has officially joined Russia. Let me no bore you with the historical and political facts and details which legitimizes the genuine desire of Crimean to be a part of Russia. The unfortunate part of this whole incident is that the West has decided to be undemocratic about this situation and has declared the whole process unofficial. The United States has frozen the assets of some Russian and Ukrainian officials and business men and unfortunately, I happen to be among those whose assets has been frozen in the United States.

As of this moment, other countries in Europe as well of Britain have limited the freeze on assets to Government officials but I am afraid that soon, they might extend that list to businessmen as well. The reason for contacting you is that I have certain assets in Europe which might be frozen if the situation gets to that point, as such I do wish to protect myself. As of this moment, my liquid funds in banks in the United States have been frozen thus rendering me financially incapacitated. The bulk of my assets is contained in Euro clear Bonds and Medium Term Notes.

Here is my proposal. I would be wanting to transfer ownership of all my financial instruments totaling 500 million Euro over to you on an Asset Management basis. The instruments would be in your name and you would manage them on my behalf. For this, i would be willing to reward you with a 10% stake. Usually, asset managers receive 7% but because of the extenuating circumstances, I am willing to offer you 10%. Kindly consider this proposal and get back to me urgently as time is really of the essence. Further details would be discussed upon your response.

Subject: Assalamu Alaikum.

Assalamu Alaikum.

Dear Thank you for your fast respond to my email I am Mrs amina abudu from London United Kingdom I am married to Late Mr Abdul abudu of blessed memory who was a well known Gold dealer from Kuwait to London for through out his life before he died in the year 2010. We where married for 11 years without a child.

Before his sudden death we where devoted Muslims When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of 1.Million Eight Hundred Pounds (£1.800.000.00 GBP) in a fix deposit account with one of the banks there in London using my name as the beneficiary since we could not bear a child,

Presently this money is still with the bank in United Kingdom and i am very sick from cancer of the lug despite the fibroid and tumour which denied me a child when my husband was alive as a result i may not last till the next two months according to my doctor report so i want to donate to a Muslims organisation or individual who will use it to work for Allah and i have chose you after making several praying consultations.

I want this money to be sheared among the next privileged since i do not have a child to inherit it and my late husband relatives are all Non-believers and i don't want my husbands heard earn money to be used by unbelievers since I am sure that they will not utilize the money in the way I have directed to.

Hence the reason for taking this bold decision. I know that after death I will be with Allah the most holy and the most merciful.

It is a very important confidential massage that i will like to tell you more about it so get in touch with me so that i can fully detail you what i choose you for and as well give you a little knowledge on how to achieve it.

Any delay in your respond will give me room to seek for another Moslems organisation or individual for this same purpose.

Until i hear from you my dreams lay hugely on your shoulders
I am waiting to read from you soon

Your Sister In Allah

Greetings Sir/Madam,

I write to you based on a request by an investor who is in urgent need to relocate his assets into your country through your assistance. My name is Mr.John P patrick, an attorney/solicitor here in Nairobi. I am representing the interests of very wealthy investors mainly from East and North Africa. Due to the sensitivity of their position they hold in their organization and the unstable investment environment of their countries, they prefer to channel/move majority of their funds into more stable economies and developing nations where they can get good yield for their assets and its safety.

I will like us to discuss my proposal in details. My leader Brra Riek Machar former Vice president of South Sudan has given me an instruction to move all his assets to a safer location from its present locations in Khartoum and Morocco, with the assistance of a foreign interest that is capable and can be trusted. This is coming in the heels of the ongoing Civil war in South Sudan (where he is a major player). Ever since his purported and unconstitutional removal by the sitting president Mr.Salva Kiir Mayardit which resulting the ongoing civil war, his personal safety, assets and investments are no longer guaranteed under the sitting government.

Dear Friend.

I am Dr. Harry Thomas from Brondesbury, North West London, here in England. I work for UBS Investment Bank London. I am writing you about a business proposal that will be of an immense benefit to both of us. In my department, as a member of the Executive Committee of UBS Investment Bank and also the Chief Risk Officer here in (Greater London Regional Office). I discovered an abandoned sum of 15 Million Great British Pounds Sterling (Fifteen Million Great British Pounds Sterling) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign deceased customer, a billionaire Business Man (Late Mr. Moses Saba Masri) from Mexico who was a victim of a plane crash , resulting to his death and his family members. Saba was 51-years-old. Also in the plane crash was with his wife, and their son Abraham (Saba) and his daughter-in-law.

The choice of contacting you is aroused from the geographical nature of where you live, particularly due to the sensitivity of the transaction and the confidentiality herein. Now our bank has been waiting for any of the relatives to come-up for the claim but nobody has done that. I personally have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for 10 month now, I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin/Will Beneficiary to the deceased so that the proceeds of this account valued at Ј15 Million Pounds can be paid to you.

This will be disbursed or shared in these percentages, 60% to me and 40% to you. I have secured all necessary legal documents that can be used to back up this claim we are making. All I need to do is to fill in your names to the documents and legalize it in the court here to prove you as the legitimate beneficiary. All I require now is your honest Co-operation, Confidentiality and Trust to enable us see this transaction through. I guarantee you that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law.

Please provide me the following: as we have 7 days to run it through. This is very URGENT PLEASE.
1. Full Name:
2. Your Contact Address:
3. Your Mobile Number:
4. Your Age:
5. Sex:

Having gone through a methodical search, I decided to contact you hoping that you will find this proposal interesting. On your confirmation of this message and indicating your interest will furnish you with more information. Endeavor to let me know your decision rather than keep me waiting.

Donation from an inheritance fund scam

Subject: LET HIS GLORY REIGN

FROM: Mrs. IRENE OGENE.

Greetings in name of our Lord,

Greeting to you in the name of the Lord. I am the above named person but now undergoing medical treatment. I was married to Dr. Mitchell Ogene who worked with oil Firm Shell Petroleum Nigeria Plc in Nigeria for fifteen years, before he died in the year 2013. We were both married for twenty-one years without children.

He died after a brief illness that lasted for only four days. Before his death. We were both very close as husband and wife and since his death I decided not to re-marry. When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of USD 6, 500,000.00 (Six Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) with Zenith Bank Nig Plc, I will send you details as soon as you indicate your Interest. Recently, my Doctor told me that I would not last for the next Six months due to my cancer illness. Having known my condition and believing the doctor I have decided to donate this fund to avoid total loss to Less privilege, or better still an individual that will utilize this money the way I am going to Instruct here in. I want interested firm, or individual that will receive and use this money to help orphanages, widows and propagating the word of God and to ensure that the house of God is maintained.

Please do not fail to spread the funds across the globe especially AFRICA as soon as you receive the money. it is more blessed to give than to receive. I took this decision because I don't have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are fighting over the properties and I don't want my husband's hard earned money to be misused by their greedy attitude. 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 death since I am a good person.

I shall hold my peace. I don't need any telephone communication in this regard because of my health and because of the 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 information of the bank and other details that will enable you claim the funds.please,I want you to be aware that according to my attorney there are some important document that will be required by the bank for the transfer this is where i will need your little assistance before the fund can be transfer with the help of my attorney.

I will also issue you a letter of authority/Power of Attorney that will make you the beneficiary of this fund. I want you to always pray for me because the lord is my shepherd. My happiness is that I lived a life of a worthy Christian. Whoever that wants to serve the GOD must serve him in spirit and truth. Please always be prayerful all through your life.

I sent you this mail under severe pains. Any delay in your reply will be detrimental. Please assure me that you will act accordingly.

Hoping to hear from you immediately.

Remain blessed in the name of the Lord.

Yours in Christ,

Subject: FROM: EUGENIA AMARANTO

Greetings to you, my name is Eugenia Amaranto, I am terminally ill and have decided to donate what I inherited from my husband to you. No doubt, you may wonder how I got to know you and your information, and what informed my decision to Will my fortune to you, Dear, you have no cause to worry about these questions, I mean no harm.

Regarding how I got your personal details, it is through the help of a nurse assigned to attend to me in my private ward in this hospital, because I cannot surf on my own due to partial stroke, it is the nurse who surfs for me under my direction because I feel to donate my fortune to an individual and your profile was chosen.

I have no child and have been diagnosed of acute cancer, shortly after the death of my husband here, which made me hypertensive and resulted in stroke. In my present condition, life is without meaning to me and hope has since eluded me, each day I give my entire existence a thought, I feel over powered by gloom and despair, also saw nothing but death lurking around, All these are my reasons for deciding on using anything in my name for charity in which co-incidentally you have been favored as the beneficiary.

I must tell you that I was truly touched by my inner mind to take this decision action, and I will advice you don't see your windfall as avenue for pleasure spree but should see it as an opportunity to build and grow your personal finances to an enviable level and help others, for both your benefit and the benefit of others, always put me in your prayers and ask God to forgive my sins and trespasses.

I shall be undergoing major operations in less than two weeks from now and have willed my inheritance funds to you and to help the less-privileged around you. If you are sure that you will use the donated fund as I have advised here, get back to me via: amarantoeugenia @ gmail.com for more details.

Thanks and remain blessed.

Inheritance scam

From: Anna Bossman [annasdesk003 @ yahoo.com]

Subject: Possible Spam : Mrs Anna Bossman

Confidential addressed to you,

Despite all our effort with the correspondance bank officials to release your money as approved by African Development Bank, your delay to respond positively has given us serious concern.

However, the new president of African Development Bank Akinwumi Adesina at the inaugural meeting with all the regional representatives promised that he will pay attention to the release of those outstanding payments of overdue/delayed contract payment, Inheritance and/or Lottery that were referred to the bank for final release to their original beneficiaries as soon as possible. He also maintained that it is very important that the respective governments themselves create the right environment for the release of these payments.

Based on the above we have started processing payments to be paid to their owners through any bank of their choice of which you are one of such beneficiaries, therefore, you are advised to please contact MR. Joachim Schwarzer, Director for Germany, European Bank for Contract Revalidation and Development (EBRD) immediately on his email: schwarzer.afdb @ gmail.com to confirm the above and further instructions.

Please note also that this may be our last attempt on this matter due to time constraints, hence, we expect your full cooperation with the bank and kindly report back to us if you have any problem since we would not tolerate another issue of unpaid/return of fund.

And please Kindly state in brief your experience or ignore this text if you are not one of those affected beneficiaries.

Regards,

Anna Bossman,
Director, Integrity and Anti-corruption Department
