These scams claim that there are large amounts of excess funds or unclaimed money in existence, and this money could very easily be shared with the recipient of the email. The excess or unclaimed money might be stated as coming from overpayments, surplus profits, surplus reserved money, a dormant account, or anything else that the scammer has invented.

In truth, there is no money. Nothing will ever be transferred or delivered.

NOTE: PLEASE REPLY ME THROUGH EMAIL:([email protected])

I have a proposal for you - this however is not mandatory nor will I in any manner compel you to honor against your will. I am 50 years, married and father of four children. I work with a bank (one of the leading banks in the West Coast of Africa ) as Director of Bills and Exchange.

Here in our bank there exists a dormant account for the past 8 years which belong to a late customer (Mr. Raymond Beck) who died on Egypt Air Flight 990. Kindly see the website below: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/americas/502503.stm

When I discovered that there had been no deposits or withdrawals from this account for this long period, I decided to carry out a system investigation and discovered that, no family member nor relation of the late person is aware of this account. This is the story in a nutshell.

Now I want an account overseas where we can gradually move these funds to. Thereafter, I have plans to destroy all related documents for this account. It is a careful network and for the past eleven months, I have worked out everything to ensure a hitch-free operation. The amount is not so much at the moment, in addition to all the accumulated interest the balance in this account stands at-(USD 9.5 million).

My questions are:
1. Can you partner this project?
2. Can I give you this trust?
3. What will be your commission?

If you can sponsor this transfer and stand as the available relation to the deceased then consider this and get back to me as soon as possible. Finally, it is my humble prayer that the information as contained herein be accorded the necessary attention, urgency as well as the secrecy it deserves. I expect your urgent response if you can handle this project.

NOTE: PLEASE REPLY TO EMAIL:([email protected])


Respectfully yours,

Mr.Frank William.

Dear Friend.

The fund originated from the balance of over-invoiced sum and Inflated government contracts of which the principal sum had been paid to foreign contactors that executed their contract some years ago. This fund is now floating in a suspense account of our bank and will be moved by Certified cashier's check bit by bit or bank transfer within 48hours in another way out if you like bank to bank transfer of perfection of your account coordinates. I have concluded all necessary Arrangements for the BANK DRAFT or ATM CARD of the money to an account. .Contacting you on this issue became imperative to owing to the fact that the transfer cannot be affected without a second party account and receiving Bank Code and SWIFT numbers. Therefore, what is required from you is trust and honesty. No further documentation, Just to change the ownership to your name No travel is required, I will forward an account where my share will be further transferred to, when the money reaches your bank.

Due to insecurity from some illicit member of the public am sending you this vital information by via attachment for security reasons.

URGENT BUSINESS PROPOSAL

My name is Peter Twala, a high placed official working with Department of (Finance & Economic Affairs) in Johannesburg South Africa. I decided to reach you directly to solicit for your assistance and guidelines in making a business investment and transfer of US$30,600,000.00 (Thirty Million Six Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) to your country.

Please I must plead for your confidence in this transaction. I and a colleague of mine are currently in need of a silent foreign partner whose identity we can use to transfer this sum of money. But at this moment, I am constrained to issue more details about this profitable business until I get your response by email, please if you can take out a moment of your very busy schedule today to respond back to my private email below for more details and include your private telephone number for easier and faster communication with you.

This fund accrued legitimately to us as commission from foreign contracts, through our private connections. The fund is presently waiting to be remitted from the bank here in South Africa to any overseas beneficiary confirmed by us as associate/receiver. By virtue of our positions as civil servants in my country, we cannot acquire this money in our names. Because as high placed civil servants, we are not allowed by the civil service code of conduct to own or operate bank accounts outside of our shores. On the other hand, it is not safe for us to keep the money here due to unstable political environment. My colleague has mandated me as a matter of trust to look for an overseas silent partner who could work with us to facilitate transfer of this fund for our mutual benefit, hence the reason for this email.

My proposal is that after you receive the funds, it would be shared as follows: (1) 15% to you as commission for your co-operation and assistance in facilitating the transfer, while the remaining 83% belongs to me and two colleague and 2% will be used to offset expenses we incur at the cause of the transfer. You will be free to take out your commission immediately after the money hits your account in your country. Since our objective is to invest the money in a foreign country, it would be appreciated if you could also help us with advices and direction on investing into profitable ventures in your country.

However, this is optional, and if it is not convenient for you to further assist us with investing the money, we can end our cooperation after you make available to me our part of the money. The transaction, although discreet, is legitimate and the money will be transferred successfully with all necessary back-up official documents showing the legitimate source/origin of fund. The transfer will be effected within a period not longer than two weeks as soon as we reach an agreement and you furnish me with a suitable response indicating your interest for processing the transfer. I plead with you on one issue, whether you are interested or not, kindly do not expose this information to any one else. I confirm that the transaction is legitimate and without any risks either to us or yourself. Please, give me your response immediately by returning this mail through my alternative email address.

Yours Faithfully,

Mr. Peter Twala

This scam mail, like many others, is based upon a genuine tragedy. The sender of this email, however, is not the Group Chief Executive of Lloyds, and has never had any connection to the late Mr Shumejda. He does not have access to a dormant account containing £15 million and therefore he does not have a percentage of that amount to offer to anybody. He is a scammer with nothing to offer except lies to persuade you to send him your money.

RE: MY REQUEST FOR PARTNERSHIP !!

My Name is Mr.Richard Williams, the Group Chief Executive, Lloyds Banking Group, Main Branch here in London. On a routine inspection i discovered a dormant account with a Balance of ?15,000,000.00 (Fifteen Million Pounds Sterlings).On Further investigation, i also discovered that the account holder Late Mr. John Shumejda, of Florida America who perished in plane crash at Birmingham Airport on 4th Jan, 2002, with other passengers aboard as you can comfirm it through these web sites bellow: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/england/1742404.stm

http://www.cwn.org.uk/business/a-z/a/ag ... -crash.htm

He died leaving no beneficiary to the account, and the bank will approve this money to any foreigner who have information about this account which i will give to you. because the former operator of this account is a foreigner from Florida America and i am certainly sure that he is dead and nobody will come to claim this money again.Therefore i need your full cooperation in this transaction, i will provide all the necessary information needed in order to claim this money, but you will need to send to me information about yourself so that i will trust you for this business, your full name and address including you phone/fax number and your occupation.
I want to assure you that this transfer is 100% risk free you have nothing to worry about because i am with the account information of Late Mr. John Shumejda, which i will give to you.
Finally, i promise you 40% of the total money for your corporation and assistance while 50 % will be for me there after i and my family will visit your country for investment and 5% will be mapped out for any expenses that might made in the process of succeeding the transaction while remaining 5% will be donated to the charity and motherless babies home. If you are interested, please reply me through My Private email, for more details about this transaction.
Thanks and God bless.

I am writing to solicit your assistance in the transfer of US $12,850.000.00 Million Dollars. This fund is the excess of what my branch in which I am the manager made as profit during the last two years. I have already submitted an approved End of the Year report to my Head Office here in Accra and they will never know of this Excess. I have since then, placed this amount of US &12,850.000.00 Million Dollars. On a SUSPENSE ACCOUNT without a beneficiary.

As an officer of the bank, I cannot be directly connected to this money thus I am impelled to request for your assistance to receive this money into your bank account. I intend to part 35% of this fund to you while 65% shall be for me. I do need to stress that there are practically no risk involved in this. It is going to be a bank-to-bank transfer to your nominated bank account anywhere you feel safer. All I need from you is to stand as the original depositor of this fund.

If you accept this offer, I will appreciate your timely response. As soon as I receive your kind response, I will give you details on how we can achieve it successfully.

With Regards,
Mrs. Mary Osei.

The extra (?7M) is what we want to transfer to your account for our own personal use and investments.

Note that the nature of your job does not matter,All modalities to effect the payment and subsequent transfer of this money have been worked out. This transaction is 100% risk free but requires 100 percent confidentiality. This is a golden opportunity, which must not be allowed to slip out of our hands as a result of any careless acts and utterances.

As it is my duty to recommend the transfer of these surplus funds to the Federal Government Treasury and Reserve Accounts as unclaimed deposits, I have the opportunity to write you based on the instructions I received two days ago from the Senate Committee on Contract Payments Foreign Debts to submit the List of payment reports expenditures and audited reports of revenues. Among several others, I have decided to remit this contract sum following my idea that we have a deal agreement and I am going to do this legally.

subject Do get in torch with me

Hello My Friend,

I am writing to seek your cooperation over this business, Please due welcome this letter.
I am Mr Barry Moye, the director of the accounts & auditing dept .ECO Bank of Ghana. (C B G) With due respect, I have decided to contact you on a business transaction that will be beneficial to both of us.

At the bank's last accounts/auditing evaluations, my staffs came across an old account which was being maintained by a foreign client who we learnt was among the deceased passengers of motor accident on November. 2003, the deceased was unable to run this account since his death. The account has remained dormant without the knowledge of his family since it was put in a safe deposit account in the bank for future investment by the client.

Since his demise, even the members of his family haven't applied for claims over this fund and it has been in the safe deposit account until I discovered that it cannot be claimed since our client is a foreign national and we are sure that he has no next of kin here to file claims over the money. As the director of the department, this discovery was brought to my office so as to decide what is to be done. I decided to seek ways through which to transfer this money out of the bank and out of the country too.

The total amount in the account is seven million five hundred thousand dollars (USD 7,500,000.00).with my positions as staffs of the bank, I am handicapped because I cannot operate foreign accounts and cannot lay bonafide claim over this money. The client was a foreign national and you will only be asked to act as his next of kin and I will supply you with all the necessary information and bank data to assist you in being able to transfer this money to any bank of your choice where this money could be transferred into.

The total sum will be shared as follows: 50% for me, 50% for you and expenses incidental occur during the transfer will be incur by both of us. The transfer is risk free on both sides hence you are going to follow my instruction till the fund transfer to your account.

Since I work in this bank that is why you should be confident in the success of this transaction because you will be updated with information as at when desired.

I will wish you to keep this transaction secret and confidential as I am hoping to retire with my share of this money at the end of transaction which will be when this money is safety in your account. I will then come over to your country for sharing according to the previously agreed percentages. You might even have to advise me on possibilities of investment in your country or elsewhere of our choice. May God help you to help me to a restive retirement, Amen.

Please for further information and enquiries feel free to contact me back immediately for
more explanation and better understanding .

I am waiting for your urgent response!!!

Thanks and remain blessed.

I am Mr. Eric Freeman, the Director of Contract Award and Procurement Commission (CAPCOM) to the Republic of South Africa.

This is to use your name/particulars LEGALLY transfer the said fund which we deliberately inflated/over-estimated during the contract we awarded some months Ago for our personal benefit. Hence we have decided to invest and re-settle outside the African continent due to geometric economic depression and increase in crises, which leads to violation of human rights, devaluation of currencies, acute scarcity of food and other amenities

I feel quite safe dealing with you in this important business. Though, this medium (Internet)has been greatly abused, I choose to reach you through it because it still remains the fastest medium of communication. However,this correspondence is unofficial and private, and it should be treated as such. At first I will like to assure you that this transaction is 100% risk and trouble free to both parties. My name is MR. IHUKA JAMES, I work as the personal manager in account management section in charge of credit and foreign bills of one of the prime banks here in Nigeria. On a routine inspection I discovered a dormant domiciliary account with a Balance Of S$48,223,000. 00 (Forty eight million two hundred and twenty three thousand U.S dollar).On further discreet investigation, I also discovered that the account holder has died long ago with his family on a fatal Auto-accident leaving no beneficiary to the account and no other person knows about this account. I am in close contact with the manager of the bank here who is my partner and he is willing to approve the transfer to any reliable and trustworthy foreigner with foreign bank account because the former operator of the a/c is a foreigner and from Australia in particular. I am certainly sure that he has no written or oral WILL attached to the account , no beneficiary and nobody will come again for the claim of this money. It is only a foreigner who can claim this money with legal claims to the account holder which I will provide to you if you are interested, therefore I need your cooperation in this transaction. The difference in country of origins is not a hindrance to the success of this transaction. This money will remain useless in this dormant account if I did not transfer the fund out to a foreign account. I will provide the necessary information and documents needed in order to claim this money. I only need your cooperation as a foreigner to provide your safe bank account information for the transfer. All arrangement that will ensure a smooth transfer of the fund to the account which you are to nominate is already in place.You should also provide me with your direct phone lines for easy communication. I wish for utmost confidentiality in handling this transaction. At the conclusion of this transaction, your share will be 30% of the total transfer sum, 60% for me and my partner while 10% will be set aside for any expenses both parties might incur during the process of the transfer. The fund will be transferred to your account in two parts. I will first transfer $20USD Million to your account. I will fly over to meet you after the successful transfer for sharing according to the agreed percentages.I will have the remaining balance of USD28,223 Million transferred to your account only after the successful sharing of the first transfer without any disappointment from your side.

Like many other scam mails, this one emphasises the need to keep the transaction a secret. The scammer does not want anyone telling their friends and relatives about it - in case one of those friends or relatives says, 'That is a scam!'

They would be correct: it is a scam.

Strictly Confidential,

I am Mrs Elizabeth Zodo, head, audit department of my bank. in Cotonou, Benin Republic of West Africa. I am contacting you on a very urgent business transaction that would be beneficial to both families. This business offer is 100% risk free but has to be handled with utmost confidentiality and secrecy. The reason is that I would not want my bank to know that I spearheaded the transfer of the funds to a foreign account.
In the course of our routine audit in the bank, my colleagues and I discovered that there is a dormant account owned by an American national who died in a plane crash with the wife years back. At the end of the year meeting of the board of directors of my bank held last week, it was resolved that if there are no claims to it till January next year, the funds will be disbursed amongst themselves. Consequent upon this, my colleagues and I conceived the idea to contact a foreigner who would send in an application for claims to the funds as a business partner to the late customer. We will give you all the necessary informations about the account so that you can quickly send an application for claim to the funds. We will guide you with any information that may be required of you from the management of the bank.
The total funds and accrued interest is 5.5 Million United States Dollars. Upon the successful transfer of the funds to your nominated bank account, you shall be entitled to 30% of the total funds while the other 70% will be for us.
Please, if you are interested to work with us, respond to this mail as soon as possible so that we shall set up the necessary machinery to actualize this objective.
Thanks and remain blessed.
