Has someone offered you a huge sum of money or a valuable consignment? It's a 419 or advance fee fraud - find out how they work, and what to do to be safe.

This email was sent to multiple recipients in the hope of convincing people to send them money, you will be told that in order for the funds to reach you, you will be required to pay fees, with each fee there will be another fee, in fact, while you keep sending money, they will keep inventing new reasons for you to pay even more.

If you have received this email just as I have, please do not reply, it's a scam

Dear friend
I know this letter will come to you as a surprise because you do not know
me before; my name is Mr. George John, Director Cargo Department, Bank of

During the airlift of some presidential luggage's to Europe I and my colleagues
in the above department unanimously decided to include additional luggage
containing US$18m (Eighteen Million United States Dollars) only for our
own benefit though it was labeled "Photographic Equipment" for security
reasons. I am obliged to contact you to assist us on getting the luggage
cleared from the agent and delivered to you. As we have agreed on the following

(1) All relevant documents to claim the luggage will be procure in your
name to enable the agent deliver the luggage to your mailing address. (2)
You will be entitled to a share of 25% of the total amount. (3) 5% of the
total amount will be set aside for expenses on both sides. (4) 70% of the
total amount will be for my colleagues and me.

If this business terms and conditions are ok by you, kindly contact me on
this mail address, also, furnish me with your full names, mailing address
and your personal telephone / fax numbers, for easier communication for
immediate forwarding to the agent in Europe.

Note that this business is 100% risk free, as all relevant documents to
back up the claim will be procure on your name, however we advice you to
keep the entire transaction close to yourself until you received the luggage.
For security reasons other modalities will be discussed as soon as you response to me.

Yours Faithfully
Mr. George John.
