Fraudsters located in Cote D'Ivoire seem to specialise in this type of scam. The desperate, yet incredibly wealthy orphan needs the help of a complete stranger to get his millions out of Africa. :roll: The domain uunoert.com was only created on 29 Aug this year and already it has been posted as fraudulent. The scammer was also using the number +22548719438 back in May 2009 when he posted his scam script here. You'll notice that his inheritance has decreased from $18.3M to $8M in this latest scam. It seems that the tough economic climate is having a negative effect on his fake millions. :laugh-s:

With just a little time and effort in research, it can be very easy to spot these emails as scams. Google is an excellent tool in this regard.

My name is Michael Johnson from Sierra Leonean. I am 19 years old and a
student. Please I would like you to assist me as urgent as you can, before
they kill me. My father is a wealthy cocoa merchant. Trouble began early
last two year when my father's relatives and coligue began suspecting that
my father is not giving proper accounts of all the tones of cocoa being
cultivated by local farmers in our villages.

This mistrust began between Oct-Sept, 2007 when they discovered a very large
some of money my father deposited with a Bank here in ABIDJAN-COTE D'IVOIRE
(FORMALLY IVORY COAST in West Africa. As a result of this discovery and the
envy on the money he was poisoned by this people called his enemies.

At his hospital bed, he revealed to me the reasons of his sickness and
directed me where to get the documents of the said deposit which he made on
my name as the next of kin, being the only child. He advised me that in case
he die, that I should not stay in this country Sierra Leone because his
associates will equally kill me hence my mother had died five years ago of
breast cancer.

Before my father finally died, he sent a written letter of authorizing this
bank to release his funds to me through his foreign partner who will serve
as my legal trustee, he also instructed that if he dies, I should look for
one of his foreign partners who will help me to invest my inheritance
overseas because of his enemies and political crises here. But it was
unfortunately that he did not inform me of his partners, before he died.
Based on this problem, I decided to contact you and present you to the bank
as my guardian trustee, who will help me provide legal address where the
bank will issue the money order, because the bank has approved to issue a
money order cashable in overseas for the onward investment as advised by my
father. My father finally died on the 5th of December, 2008 and since then,
I was out of school and went into hiding place because of my father's
enemies. All the relevant documents of the $8.000, 000. (Eight Million
United States Dollars) that was deposited in a Commercial Bank by my late
father, are with me now.

I will have no regret in given you 15% of the total money, if you can help
me get this secured for me in your country through the bank draft money
order, for onward investment in your country. Please contact me immediately
with the above E-mail address and include your telephone and Fax numbers to
enable me send you all necessary documents as regards the money.

I'm waiting for your urgent reply.
Best regards. Sincerely
Michael Johnson
