An E-mail I recieved…


That’s right. A bank has all this money and can’t find anything to do with it. Apparently I’m the next of kin. Yes, ME. Not my parents, or my seven elder siblings, ME. I guess some days you get really lucky don’t you? ;P

I get atleast one of these a week…

àéFROM: MR SULE MOHAMED
AUDITING / ACCOUNTING DIRECTOR
INTERNATIONAL BANK OF AFRICA(BOA)
BURKINA-FASO WEST AFRICA.

My dear I am contacting you in regards to a business transfer of a huge sum of money from a deceased account. Though I know that a transaction of this magnitude will make anyone apprehensive and worried, but I am assuring you that all will be well at the end of the day. I decided to contact you due to the urgency of this transaction.

PROPOSITION; I discovered an abandant sum of $11.5M(Eleven Million Five Hundred thousand United states Dollars) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customers who died along with his entire family. Since his death, none of his next-of-kin or relations has come forward to lay claims to this money as the heir. I cannot release the fund from his account unless someone applies for claim as the next-of-kin to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines. Upon

this discovery, I now seek your permission to have you stand as a next of kin to the deceased as all documentations will be carefully worked out by me for the funds $11.5M(Eleven Million Five Hundred thousand United states Dollars) to be released in your favour as the beneficiary’s next of kin.It may interest you to note that I have secured from the probate an order of madamus to locate any of deceased beneficiaries.

Please acknowledge receipt of this message in acceptance of my mutual business endeavour by

furnishing me with the following;
1. Your Full Names and Address.
2. Direct Telephone and Fax numbers.

These requirements will enable me file a letter of claim to the appropriate departments for necessary approvals in your favour before the transfer can be made. I shall be compensating you with $4.6 Million Dollars on final conclusion of this project, while the rest $6.9Million shall be for me. Your share stays with you while the rest shall be for me for investment purposes in your
country.
If this proposal is acceptable by you, do not take undue advantage of the trust I have bestowed in you, I await your urgent email.
Regards,
Your;s faithfully,
MR SULE MOHAMED

  1. Your options at this point include:

    * Send replies to all their messages saying that you need some money transferred before you can pass on your details etc. Scam the scammers; a taste of their own medicine; whatever you want to call it.
    * Start up a pointless and completely conversation to waste their time. Bonus points if you befriend the person on the other end of the emails.
    * Send complex replies in obscure vocabulary and/or strongly dialectal English. Or another language, if you’d prefer.
