Attn: Beneficiary,

We are contacting you over the transfer of your fund. Few days ago we got a report from a reputable bank here about a lady who claimed to be your business partner submitted to the foreign department of the bank, a death certificate and a sworn affidavit stating you are dead.

The lady was directed to us for clearance After serious questioning, we suspect these documents could be falsified,hence we decide to contact you immediately. You are expected to get back to this office as quickly as possible and failure to get update from you in the next 5 working days, it means these documents are genuine and we will mandate bank to proceed with them.

If you are alive and ignorant of the death certificate and sworn affidavit, you should contact us immediately. We asked the lady to come back in 3 days time. On your confirmation to us that you are still alive, the lady will be arrested and prosecuted for fraud.

Yours Faithfully,

Dr. John Attoh Hovis.

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am Mrs.J.V the Administrative manager at a vault of financial & security Institute in Madrid, I am contacting you as regards an abandoned sum of $14.9 Million Us dollars (Fourteen million nine hundred thousand United State dollars) in our safe deposit vault, that belongs to one of our foreign customers that share the same surname with you, who died along with his entire family on the 11th march 2009 in a ghastly motor accident in Porto Portugal.

The banking policy can only allow the release of such funds to a benefactor through an application as next of kin to the deceased. After his death, the bank has been expecting a possible beneficiary, but nobody came for the claim, this institute has exploited all its ethical possibilities in other to contact possible relation or inheritor, but no success, I have made my own research with the help of private investigator, it is my knowledge that this man has been living in Barcelona for the past 19 years and has never returned back home. I also leant that his wife and 7 year old daughter died with him during this accident, however because of the international financial crises, a lot of reform has been made within the Spanish financial system; this includes the new law on succession/claims which indicates a duration in which such inheritance could be tolerated,

Upon your acceptance to partner with me, I urge you to please kindly get back to me with your direct contact details for further details via my email address: on how you and me can make a claim to the funds in question. I GUARANTEE you that this process would be executed under a legitimate and risk free arrangement. Thanks as I wait to hear from you as soon as you receive this proposal e-letter.

Best Regard,
Mrs.J V

Mrs. Veronica Bright
Bank Of East Asia USA(NA)
San Gabriel Branch
168 West Valley Boulevard,
San Gabriel, CA 91776, USA

Greetings Friend,

You may wonder why I am reaching out to you in spite of friends that I have known for years, the singular reason is that I have by the very nature of this proposition and the required confidentiality decided to deal with a person that I have not known before so that we can develop the trust and execute this transaction without a third person knowing.I would not have used this medium (Internet) but I chose to reach you through it because it is the fastest, surest and most secured medium of communication.

However, this correspondence is un-official and private, and it should be treated as such. I also guarantee you that this transaction is hitch free from all what you may think of.

I am Mrs. Veronica Bright of The Bank of East Asia USA, San Gabriel Branch, California (USA) I am contacting you based on Trust and confidentiality that will be attached to this transaction. The Management and the Legal department of our bank in a recent meeting recommended that the account of MR. DAVID ANGELLl, who was one of my branch depositors, should be declared Dormant, confiscated and the depositor's fund sent to the Bank Treasury according to American Banking and financial law.

Mr. David Angell and the wife died in world trade center as a victim of the September 11,2001 incident that befell the United States of America. The bank has made series of efforts to contact any of the relatives to claim this money but without success.

MR. DAVID ANGELL is an account holder in my branch; he owns a dollar account with the sum of 3.2M (Three Million, two Hundred Thousand United States Dollars Only) deposited in a Secret account with my branch .In fact, since his death, no next of kin of the account holder nor any relative of him has shown up for the claim,this is because he has the account as a secret account thus he left all the documents for the deposit with me. The wife whom he signed in as his next of kin died with him on that fateful and sad day.

This is where I am interested and where I want you to come in. I want you to come in as the relation of the deceased; I will give you the relevant documents and contacts to file the application and then effect the approvals for the transfer of the funds, I will be the one to provide the vital documents for the claims of the money and then advise you exactly how we should handle it.

Please include your telephone/fax number/ Home address when replying this mail and I will give you more information as soon as you indicate your willingness to assist in this transaction. I will use my positions to get all internal documentations to back up the claims. Do not be bothered that you are not related in any way to him as I am in position to affix your name as the next of kin. The whole Procedures will last only 9 working days to get the fund retrieved successfully without trace even in future. After the transfer of the money we shall share the money 70-30, which is I will have 70% while you will have 30%.

Kindly respond promptly so I can advice you on the next step to follow.

I will be waiting to hear from you.

Yours truly,

Mrs. Veronica Bright
Bank Of East Asia (USA)

Dear Partner.
I am Mr.Freeborn Magai, Director Inspection Unit (United Nations Inspection Agent) in Greater Accra field International Airport West Africa. During our investigation, we discovered An abandoned shipment of two Metallic Trunk Boxes that was transferred from your country's International Airport, back to our Airport facility here in Accra Ghana, and when scanned it revealed an undisclosed sum of money in Metal Trunk Boxes weighing approximately 169kg. These consignments was abandoned because the Content was not properly declared by the delivery agent as money rather it was declared as personal effect to avoid diversion by the Shipping Agent also the Diplomat.

On my assumption, the boxes contains more than US$18.750 Million to $11.5 Million United States of American Dollars and the consignments are still left in our Storage House till today. These Consignments/Two Metal Trunk Boxes with weight of about 169kg (Internal Dimension: W 61xH 156xD73 (Cm). Effective capacity: 680 L) Approximately.

The details of the consignment including your name and Address are tagged on the Metal Trunk boxes as the Consignee. Provide your Phone Number full address, name of nearest Airport around and other details or disregard this message if you are not the intended Consignee. If you are interested then you can send the required details to me for onward delivery. This is the one truth I have learned from my experience. Do not betray my confidence. If we can be of one accord let us work in partnership. As you know Trust has become an issue not because people are evil but because people are self centered but l believe this case will be different on both side so far there is mutual respect and cooperation.

All communication must be held extremely confidential. I can arrange and get everything concluded within 3 days and proceed the delivery of these consignments to your address for delivery. Most importantly due to my position as UN Diplomat, nobody must know about my involvement in this deal otherwise every effort will be thwarted and jeopardized. But I must get assurance from you concerning my 30% before I proceed to arrange with any comprehensive delivery company to handle the shipment.

I want us to transact this business and share the money, since the shipper has abandoned it and ran away. I will arrange for the boxes to be moved out of this Airport to your address, once we are through I will deploy the services of a secured shipping Company geared to provide the security it needs to deliver these consignments to your doorstep. But I will share it 70% to you and 30% to me. But you have to assure me of my 30%, if you agreed with my condition.

Therefore, I am set to Partner with you to claim these consignments/Boxes with a sharing ratio of 70-30. I shall provide you with more details and relevant documents that will help you understand the transaction as soon as you declare your interest to work with me, I do hereby anticipate your Urgent and speedy response. With your full contact Details such as your Full name, telephone and cell Phone Numbers, your Mailing/delivery address.
Best Regards.
Freeborn Magai.
