It amazes me that if there is so much money in africa, why is most of it a dump?

Do they think we are totally stupid although saying that, a bloke from Gosport fell for it and lost well over £100,000!

Greed.

Welcome to the forum Makumba. This chap is so kind and generous that he is giving me 15% of $16.5 million just for transferring it to my bank account for him and arranging for him to come to Britain. He's a student so he needs my help. Once I get my money, the drinks are on me!!

Dear Friend,
May I call you friend? I feel that God has chosen you to help me. I got your name from a list of names supplied to me by the Benefit Fraud office. I prayed for Godís guidance and then chose your name by sticking a pin in the list. I am the only son of a very wealthy rubber plantation owner, here in the Black Country. Despite my very best efforts, my father is still alive. Iíve tried everything. Poison, tripping him down the stairs, sending him out with some very dodgy associates and still the bugger wonít die!
Never mind, I still have access to his bank card and PIN number, so need help to invest this fortune. As you know, there are lotís of fraudsters out there, trying to trick you into parting with your money. I swear on my motherís grave, when I can find the bitch that I am an honorable and trustworthy soul. All I ask is that you open a bank account for me, fill it with money, sponsor me as a student, introduce me to your sister and for this we will split my fatherís fortune.
Please understand that you are my last hope. If you fail me, I may have to go and find a job and you know that will never do.
Yours, in Hope, Jono UmbotoÖ..

Dear Sir,

I write you with great confidence believing that you could be relied upon in the field of investment.Due to the sensitivity of the transaction and other security reasons, I will like you to take this proposal in confidence,Let me formally introduce myself.

I am Mr OKON B.OKON, a Chief Superintendent (Nigeria Customs Service) attached to the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA)Tin Can Island Lagos. In the process of carrying out my official duty at the ports,my colleagues and I stumbled on a consignment(Seven
jumbo boxes),which was alleged to have contained FILM MATERIALS.But subsequent upon inspection we found out these boxes contained U.S Dollar bills.After thorough
investigation,we found out that each of this boxes contained approximately U.S $8,250,000.00 (Eight Million,Two Hundred and Fifty Thousand United States dollars).

Thereafter, My colleagues and I decided to declare ONLY Five (5) of the boxes and retain Two (2) of the boxes to ourselves.At the moment I have in my possession the two boxes which we have agreed to jointly invest with you in any profitable business venture in your country or elsewhere as you may recommend.I intend to retire from public service immediately after.

It is believed that the money that was brought into the country in that manner was intended for use by top stalwarts(LEADERSHIP) of the rulling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP )to accomplish their second term bid in office in the just concluded April 2003 general election in the country.

The boxes have now been moved to a safe location for custody pending a time you will be able to assist us with the logistics necessary to move the money over to your country.Please, contact me immediately you receive this letter.

Further details will be provided as soon as I receive your acknowledgment of this letter.

Please, keep every information about this transaction to yourself.

Thanks for your anticipated cooperation.

Best regards,

Mr OKON B.OKON
