    Heres a very recent and not so happy ending as a result of one of these scams.


    I also knew a guy in the late '90's (who we thought was very intelligent) and he was a corporate banker at Citibank in Auckland who fell for the same scam too (who would have ever thought a clever person could be so dumb?) He stole and lost $000,000's and ended up in jail too!

    Thanks inzvestor, I laughed when reading the scam baiter stories at http://baita.mugu.co.uk/ where the potential victims scam the scammers.

    Nothing like a bit of humour to lighten up such a serious topic.

    Look what happens if you give them the bosses $
    NZ Herald: Firm's cash lost to email scam

    And they've caught on in the Philippines too
    My name is LOI C.ESTRADA,The wife of Mr. JOSEPH
    ESTRADA, the former President of Philippines located
    in the South East Asia.

    My husband was recently impeached from office by a
    backed uprising of mass demonstrators and the Senate.

    My husband is presently in jail and facing trial on
    charges of corruption, embezzlement, and the
    mysterious charge of plunder which might lead to death
    The present government is forcing my husband out of
    Manila to avoid demonstration by his supporter.

    During my husband's regime as president of Philippine,

    I realized some reasonable amount of money from
    various deals that I successfully executed. I have
    plans to invest this money for my children's future on
    estate and industrial production. My husband is not
    aware of this because I wish to do it secretly for

    before my husband was impeached, I secretly siphoned
    the sum of $30,000,000 million USD (Thirty million
    states dollars) out of Philippines and deposited the
    with a security firm that transports valuable goods
    and consignments
    through diplomatic means.

    I am contacting you because I want you to go to the
    security company and claim the money on my behalf
    since I have declared that the consignment belong to
    my foreign business partner. You shall also be
    required to assist me in investment in your country.

    I hope to trust you as a God fearing person who will
    not sit on this money when you claim it, rather assist
    properly, I expect you to declare what percentage of
    the total money you will take for your assistance.

    When I receive your positive response I will let you
    know where the security company is
    and the payment pin code to claim the money which is
    very important.

    For now, let all our communication is by e-mail
    because my line are right now connected to the
    Philippines Telecommunication Network services. Please
    also send me your telephone and fax number.

    I will ask my son contact you to give you more details
    after i have received a responce from you.

    Thank you and God bless you and family.

    another example

    Let me first apologize to you for any embarrassment
    this mailNmight cause you.

    I am DR. LARRY JOHN, a cousin to the Vice
    President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (Alhaji
    Atiku Abubakar) and Executive Director of SADIQ PETROLUEM
    LTD. I have decided to contact you for this business
    proposal based on the mutual understanding I know
    that can exist between us, having known that people of
    your Country are trustworthy.

    Since May 1999 when the new Government came to
    power,large sums of money have been recovered from
    our past military leaders who siphoned money from Nigeria and deposited it in an offshore accounts in Europe,America,
    Asia and some parts of Africa, for their own selfish benefits.
    This happened during the military regime, now we are under a democratically elected government.

    This fund was among the money recovered and seized
    by the Federal Government of Nigeria. Hence, my elder cousin (Alhaji Atiku Abubakar) the Vice-President of
    Nigeria is in charge of all offshore accounts seized and retrieved from our past military leaders.

    Therefore, we urged you to assist us provide a very
    vital offshore account, where the sum of US$25,000,000.00
    (Twenty Five Million) US Dollars will be transferred for safekeeping. Presently, this money is in a foreign Country I cannot mention now. Please note that other information will be detailed to you on thereceipt of your reply.

    My elder cousin and I have agreed to give you (the account owner)for this transaction 30% of the total amount remitted while 60%is for me and Cousin Atiku, for the purchase of foreign investments, with your assistance after the money have been disbursed, while 10% is for expenses both of us
    will incur. Note, I have been mandated by my elder cousin to
    handle this deal with you, due to his position in the Nigerian Government as the second citizen. Therefore,if my proposal satisfies you, kindly contact me via my
    e-mail address and enclose your phone and fax numbers for urgent confidential discussion.

    Your letter of acceptance indicating your personal telephone and fax numbers to enable us move ahead. Besides, this
    transaction is risk-free and hoped to last 7 (seven) banking days
    upon my elder cousin Alhaji Atiku Abubakar's authorisation.
    I thank you for your expected co-operation. And God

    Bless you.

    Best Regards.

    Sounds like he could bail out Kruzkeiners companies or buy up large in the new 40 storey complex planned for Auckland (not sure about the swimming pool scenario though....)

    Great views over the port to receive the illegal contraband too.

    The interest on US$25 million would be great though !!

    started a topic Nigerian Scams

    Nigerian Scams

    The nigerian scams have decided that pure money laundering wasn't working well enough so they've decided to enlist my help in buying property. Not that I'd expect any property to actually get bought. Well, I'm not a property finder so last time I got one of these I put them onto ESC and Hybrid but apparantly they'd rather deal with an individual (ie a schmuck!)

    This claims to be from Rwanda so excuse the slight geographical shift.

    If you are interested email [email protected], if you're smart then you'll just have a laugh and delete the emails when (not if) they start coming.
    Rwandan Army Personnel,
    Dear Sir,
    I contated you to work for me in your country , i am a sinior army officer in Rwanda and i need your services to buy properties in your country for residence and businesses in a commercial city that has air or sea port due to my shipments.
    I want to own a standard hotel and also be producing a daily consumed product that is marketable in your country .I will like to live in a spacious twin duplex with seperate car parks and swimming pools at a reserved residential location.
    I want to leave Rwanda soonest because the new Economic Policies and Military Reforms may not allow me to do better businesses here because i had a major coup plotting case that dented my military image in Government.
    Also, i don't want the rulling Rwandan Patrotic Front (RPF) To know about my overseas ventures as the A.D.C. to General Louis Mugyenzi--the Rwandan Defence Cheif who plotted the failled coup with the Rwandan War Lords to overthrow president Paul Kagame few years ago.
    My boss and some arrested War Lords were killed on the process while my accounts and traveling documents were seized for violating military laws as i failled to expose the coup plotters before they carried it out.But the War Crimes Tribunal in Kigali recently released me before the August Elections that re-elected our long serving president again.
    Actually, i was very close to my boss and i mediated most of his secret Arms importations and other foreign deals for him. But i was lucky that he kept some property and foreign account details with me before the coup plotting case,only me knew of this and i have returned the property documents to the wife who has abundant wealths from my late boss.
    My Government must not know this foreign deposit of US$25M.and #18.7M. British Pounds that i want you to claim for my projects in your country.Please render me these services and be well rewarded as i don't have account to bank the money and no traveling documents to go and claim the money directly now.
    If you can claim and help me use this money in your country,then send me your account particulars,street and phone contacts to enable me authorize the bankers to release the money to you as my oversea's creditor because they now know me as the new beneficiary of the two accounts.
    Please, think over this contract and email me back soonest.Remain blessed
