Zimbabwe / Nigerian Scams -- Post Yours Here
Heheh, I just received this today... I didn't know that they still sent them out. I thought everyone would have known that it's a hoax by now... Big Grin

Still an interesting read though... almost like a novel! Smile

-------------

Good day,
You may be surprised to receive this letter from me since you do not know me
personally. The purpose of my introduction is that I am John Seko, the first son
of David Seko one of the most popular black farmers in Zimbabwe who was
murdered in the land dispute in my country. I got your contact through
network online hence decided to write you.

Before the death of my father, he had taken me to Johannesburg to deposit
the sum of USD$9.5 million (Nine million, Five Hundred thousand United
States dollars), in one of the private security and finance company, as he
foresaw the looming danger in Zimbabwe this funds was deposited in a box as
gem stones to avoid much demurrage from the security and finance company.
This amount was meant for the purchase of new machines and chemicals for
the Farms and establishment of new farms in swaziland.

This land problem came when Zimbabwean President Mr. Robert Mugabe
introduced a new Land Act Reform wholly affecting the rich white farmers
and some few black farmers, and this resulted to the killing and mob action
by Zimbabwean war veterans and some lunatics in the society. In fact a lot
of people were killed because of this Land reform Act for which my father
was one of the victims.

It is against this background that, I and my family fled Zimbabwe for fear
of our lives and are currently staying in the Netherlands where we are
seeking political asylum and more so have decided to transfer my fathers
money to a more reliable foreign account. since the law of Netherlands
prohibits a refugee (asylum seeker) to open any bank account or to be
involved in any financial transaction throughout the territorial zone of
Netherlands, As the eldest son of my father, I am saddled with the
responsibility of seeking a genuine foreign account where these funds
couldbe transferred without the knowledge of my government who are
bent on taking everything we have got. The South African government
seems to be playing along with them.

I am faced with the dilemma of moving these funds out of South Africa for
fear of going through the same experience in future, both countries have
similar political history. As a businessman,I am seeking for a partner
who Ihave to entrust my future and that of my family in his hands,
I must let you know that this transaction is risk free. If you accept to
assist me and my family, all I want you to do for me, is to make
an arrangements with the security and finance company to clear the
consignment(funds) from their affiliate office here in the Netherlands
as I have already given directives for the consignment to be brought
to the Netherlands from South Africa.But before then all modalities will
have to be put in place like change of ownership to the consignment
and more importantly this money I intend to use for investment.

I have two options for you. Firstly you can choose to have certain
percentage of the funds for nominating your account for this transaction.
Or you can go into partnership with me for the proper profitable
investment of the funds in your country. Whichever the option you want,
feel free to notify me. I have also mapped out 5% of this money for all
kinds of expenses incurred in the process of this transaction.If you do
not prefer a partnership I am willing to give you 10% of the money
while the remaining 85% will be for my investment in your country.
Contact me with the this email: ( johnseko35@albawaba.com) or
( johnase67@netscape.net) while I implore you to maintain the absolute
secrecy required in this transaction.

Note:your prompt response will be appreciated.

Thanks, GOD BLESS

Yours Faithfully,
Mr. John Seko.

Dear Sir,

Request to transfer the sum of US$26.400.000.00. into your private/company account.

Sir, I approach you most honorable today for a mutual business transaction. I am Alhaji Usman Beko+, the Accountant General and Chairman Contract Award monitoring bureau of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. I have been opportune to be appointed as the Accountant General after several years of active services. Now by virtue of my present office and position, it is an opportunity for me to have a share of the huge amount of money, which many top military personnel have been using me to achieve in the past regime for their personnel interest without any benefit towards me.

Following this development, I now have an accord with a top officer of the Federal Ministry of Petroleum Resources to remit the sum of US$26.4 Million Dollars to your nominated foreign account. For the smooth remittance of this fund, hence we as civil servants do not own the right to acquire foreign account while in service.

I therefore request to your kindly allocate, any account of your choice with all necessary particulars to enable me forward the same to the Central Bank of Nigeria for onward release of this fund in the account you have provided, this transfer will be approved in your favour. We have ten working days (10) to conclude this deal on commencement and I shall join you on the account base for sharing and further on my investment plans in your company's benefit.

Lol... I got another one! We should start a collection...

Quote:Attn: The President/CEO
I am Mr. David Tungay, Provincial Director Standard Bank of South Africa, Johannesburg Branch. I have urgent and very confidential business proposition for you.

On June 6, 2000, a foreign Oil consultant/contractor with the South Africa Mining Corporation, Mr. Richard Moss made a numbered time (Fixed) Deposit for twelve calendar months, valued at US$25,000,000.00 (Twenty- five Million Dollars) in my branch. Upon maturity, I sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but got no reply. After a month, we sent a reminder and finally we discovered from his contract employers, the South Africa Mining Corporation that Mr.Richard Moss died from an automobile accident. On further investigation, I found out that he died without making a WILL, and all attempts to trace his next of kin was fruitless.
I therefore made further investigation and discovered that Mr. Richard Moss did not declare any kin or relations in all his official documents, including his Bank Deposit paperwork in my Bank. This sum of US$25,000,000.00 is still sitting in my Bank and the interest is being rolled over with the principal sum at the end of each year. No one will ever come forward to claim it. According to South Africa Law, at the expiration of 5 (five) years, the money will revert to the ownership of the South Africa Government if nobody applies to claim the fund.

Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand in as the next of kin to Mr. Richard Moss so that the fruits of this old man's labor will not get into the hands of some corrupt government officials. This is simple, I will like you to provide immediately your full names and address so that the Attorney will prepare the necessary documents and affidavits which will put you in place as the next of kin. We shall employ the service of two Attorneys for drafting and notarization of the WILL and to obtain the necessary documents and letter of probate/administration in your favor for the transfer. A bank account in any part of the world which you will provide will then facilitate the transfer of this money to you as the beneficiary/next of kin. The money will be paid into your account for us to share in the ratio of 60% for me and 40% for you.

There is no risk at all as all the paperwork for this transaction will be done by the Attorney and my position as the Branch Manager guarantees the successful execution of this transaction. If you are interested, please reply immediately via the private email address below. Upon your response, I shall then provide you with more details and relevant documents that will help you understand the transaction.
Please observe utmost confidentiality, and rest assured that this transaction would be most profitable for both of us because I shall require your assistance to invest my share in your country.
Awaiting your urgent reply via my email:davidtungay1@zwallet.com

Thanks and regards.
Mr.David Tungay.
