I received this email from a so-called Miss Williams, from Sierra Leone.

Mrs Grace Williams

Dear respectful one

I know you may feel bad or you have received such email like mine, but you have to know that some people now use the problem I in my family to make stories, so don't think that way and give your assistance to me

I feel good contacting you today, after going through business in your country, then I feel that I may invest in your country through your assistance. I got your contact from a woman friend, working in a big company here in Abidjan, knowing quite well that this contact will bring a lasting relationship for both of us in future.
I am Mrs Grace Williams Williams of mende tribe in
sierra-Leone, my husband until his death was the king
of our tribe and also one of the richest diamond and
gold dealer in Sierra-Leone .

On the 19th may 2001.My husband was murdered by the
rebel forces on the accusation that he is a great
sponsor and in support to restore the democratically
elected president of Alhadji Tejan Kabba, but I thank Almighty God that the country is getting better little by little, but the problem is that I can not go back to the country again, because of this money.
When they came to kill my my husband almost half of the palace was burnt .My husband junior brother who is in support of the rebel forces took over control of the leadership by force .Fortunately I was not in the place when they raided the palace .My husband married four wives with 11 children. two of the wives, with my children including my mother were murdered in cold blood while my two younger brothers escape the incident until this moment where the remaining families are I dont know their way about whether they
are alive or not.

Right now I am left alone with only child and a
younger sister. since the sudden assassination of my
husband the family has been displaced and totally
disorganised. on the extensive search on the place I
discovered the documents covering the deposit my
husband made in security company .He deposited a trunk
box containing US$ 9.5 million Dollars .As my town
has been a serious war zone, I made
arrangements with ECOMOG peace keeping force to help
me move out the remaining family out the country .
However we moved out of sierra-Leone successfully with
these documents , certificates, of deposit and receipt
of payment , in other words my husband did not
disclose to the security company the real contents of

Please I need your assistance. Reply me this message
Apply your telephone number for more confidentiality, this business is 100 % risk free,and I want to let you know that this is not business for beging or for bribe, if you think you can make good control of the fund, then you contact me for urgent finalization.

Thanks, Wishing you God richest blessing ,

Your faithfully
Mrs Grace Williams

Ohh come on. another spam mail? Dude, just stop using the damn hotmail already

This is a well organized sting operation that has been running for a few years.

It is desighned to get an advanced sum of money from you up front with a promise that they will make you rich.

This is then funded to an off shore bank account where your government cannot touch it.

My advice delete that mail now, and block any future access by them.

Thanks, I know it's spam. I reveived 4 of them. The last one was coming from a so-called South-African Department of Mining Senior employee.

ha ha ha ha....I sended back his email to the South-African embassy in my country.

SA embassy didn't warn me, but they told me they will investigate on the case. I think they did it, coz I received another email from the Senior employee, and this time, he wasn't gentle anymore. He was reaaaaaaaaaaally upset !

In this email, " Miss Williams " is speaking about the ECOMOG. This time, I'll send the email to the UN & the ECOMOG !!!

Here's one that just came to my email

FROM THE DESK OF MR. morrison jack
TEL:+22507 62 45 09.

Dear friend,

With due respect and huminity, I write to you this
proposal.I am the manager of bill and exchange at the
foreign remittance department of Banque Internationale du
Abidjan . I am writing following the impressive
information about you through one of my friends who run a
consultancy firm in your country. He assured me of your
capability and reliability to champion this businees

In my department, we discovered an abandoned sum of
U.S$18.5m US dollars(Eigtheen million, five hundred
thousand US dollars) . In an account that belongs to one of
our foreign customer who died along with his entire family
in november 1997 in a plane crash.

Since we got information about his death, we have been
expecting his next of kin to come forward and claim his
money because we cannot release it unless somebody applies
for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as
indicated in our banking guidelines and policies but
unfortunately we learnt that all his supposed next of kin
or relation died along side with him at the plane crash
leaving nobody behind for the claims. It is therefore upon
this discovery that I and other officials in my department
now decided to make
this businness proposal to you and release the money to you
as the next of kin or relation to the deceased for safety
and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming forth
and we dont want this money to go into the Bank treasury
as unclaimed Bill.

According to our Banking policies and guideline here which
stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed after five
years, the money will automatically be transfered into the
Bank treasury as unclaimed fund.The
request of foreigner as next of kin in this business is
occasioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner
and an ivoirian cannot stand as next of kin to a
foreigner.We agree that 25 % of this money will be for you
as foreign partner,in respect to the provision of a foreign
account, 10 % will be for
reimbursement of any expenses incured during the curse of
the transaction and 65 % would be for me and my colleagues.
There after I and my colleagues
will visit your country for disbursement according to the
percentages indicated.

Therefore to enable the immediate trnansfer of this fund to
you as arranged,you must apply first to the bank as
relation or next of kin of the deceased
indicating your bank name, your bank account number, your
private telephone and fax number for easier and effective
communication and location where the
money will be remitted .

Upon receipt of your reply, I will send to you by fax or
email the text of the application. I will not fail to bring
to your notice that this transaction is hitch free and that
you should not entertain any atomof
fear as all required arrangements have been made for the
transfer .You should contact me immediately as soon as you
receive this letter.Trusting to hear from you immediately.

Yours faithfully,

MR.morrison jack

they usually use cell phones for a few months under a false name and then get a new number

posted on Oct, 14 2002 @ 12:50 PM
It's not a mobile phone number.

Anyway,I send an email to someone in Cte d'Ivoire. I asked him to check the number.I hope he will respond.

I'll let you know.

I had a similar scammail sent to me a few months back.
It referred to the money that the Marcos family had tucked away...Over the course of about half-a-dozen emails, they even gave me a few links to look into the legal cases dealing with that money.


I posted about it here & was referred to a webpage about the Nigerian Scam. Check out the thread at
If you do a search for the Nigerian Scam, you should be able to also get to a link to file a report against it. They file the reports under two categories based on whether you've lost money to the scam or not.

Needless to say, I filed a report under "Haven't lost money"...
