This is an example of a scam that I received this morning via email:

Your Attention Please

Good Day,

I am Dr. Anderson Addo, of the newly inaugurated African Union Debt Recovery committee (AUDRC). My committee as Africa's Priority Program for Economic recovery has a mandate to recover unpaid debts associated with NNPC contracts, inheritance fund, loans and grants etc ranging from $1M-$45.5M owed to various beneficiaries and companies across the globe (Asia, Europe, USA, Africa, and Australia) and submit the list of the unpaid beneficiaries /companies to the two appointed official paying Banks for immediate payment.

In the course of our investigation, your particulars were shortlisted among the individuals yet to be paid hence this email. However, we received a petition today from one Mrs. Debra Peterson that you are dead. According to her, you died in a plane crash as such your fund should be paid to her as the apparent heir. She has also submitted her Bank account with Bank of Bahamas International for the transfer of the fund to her.

To avoid undue delay or paying the fund to wrong individual/beneficiary, I have decided to contact you for confirmation. If I fail to hear from you after 72 hours, it will be assumed that the petition of Mrs. Debra Peterson is true and the fund will be paid to her without further delay.

Therefore, if you are still alive, reconfirm your particulars bellow and contact me with full details and necessary actions will be taken on her accordingly.
1. Full Name: ___________________________________________
2. Address: _____________________________________________
3. Nationality: __________________, Sex______________________
4. Age: _______________________, Date of Birth: ______________
5. Occupation: __________________________________________
6. Phone: ________________________________, Fax: ___________
7. State of Origin: __________________, Country: _______________
8. Copy of int'l passport or any scanned identity to prove you.
9. Complete banking details for immediate transfer of your funds.


It is important for you to know that your expected sum of (US$4.800,000,00) has already been approved under SECURITY CLAUSE for transfer, therefore we advised that you provide the above required details to enable us forward them to your paying bank for immediate transfer of your US$4.8 Million.

Please Your Response

Best Regards
Dr. Anderson Addo
