I actually recieved emails like that as well w/ names that sounded foreign and similar investment stories. I just deleted it cause I saw it as regular junk mail.
Good thing I deleted them.

Here's just the latest e-mail (of many) that I've received from a benevolent Nigerian wanting to share unclaimed millions with me, a total stranger...LOL

Dear Sir/Maddam

I am Dr Datti Johnson,Manager,foreign operations, Legend International Bank Nig.Plc.

Four years ago a customer of ours perished in a plane crash, Korean Air Flight 801 with the whole passengers aboard on August 6, 1997 and he was Chinese by nationality. He left in his account a huge sum of money in foreign currency-twenty one million,five hundred thousand united states dollars (USD21.5M)

Since his,death none of his relatives or next of kin has shown up to collect his money. We the bank authorities have sent several messages to the Chinese authorities and embassy and none of them have been able to come up with any positive results. Recently the chairman of the board of directors of the bank(Chief Richards Fernandez) called me and told me in confidence and trust to source for a reliable foreigner who would stand as our late customer's next of kin.

We (myself and the chairman have reasoned that if we fail to collect this money the Nigerian government will confisticate it and someone else will end up looting it. I assure you that this transaction is risk free and you have the right to choose the percentage-sharing rate after the money has been transferred to your account. I also require your tell/fax number if you have any.

Waiting to hear from you as soon as you receive this mail.

Dr Datti Johnson

There is also an option of allowing us sneak this funds on your behalf into an offshore finance house in any of the designated european or asian countries or canada which will be convinient for you. Then all you have to do is to travel to any of these offshore centres to collect this money and keep it securely until our arrival to join you up in your country. You will also advice us on investment oppurtunities in your country, and we will like to import goods from your country with your able assistance with our share of the money.

Thanks for your co-operation
Dr Datti Johnson

I came across this completely by accident today. I guess some people can be very gullible.


This is the true story of what happened to a New Zealand couple who were taken in by the Nigerian Scam. This scam has recently hit new levels on the internet, and I personally get at least 20 new "Nigerian Scam" emails in per day. After reading this story, I realise that not everybody is "up to speed" on this, and so this still needs to be brought to peoples attention so they don't get caught out like this couple from New Zealand have.

Please kindly reply to these email or you can as well call me on
(234-80)37261809 or
Dearest One,

Permit me to inform you of my desire of going into
business relationship with you. I got your contact
from the chamber of commerce and industry.
I prayed over it and selected your name among other
names due to it's esteeming nature and the
recommendations given to me as a reputable and trust
worthy person I can do business with and by
their recommenddations I must not hesitate to confide
in your for this simple and sincere business.

I am Sharon Rex; the only Daughter of late Mr and
Mrs George Rex. My father was a very wealthy cocoa
merchant in Abuja,the economic
capital of Nigeria before he was poisoned to death
by his business associates on one of their outing to
discus on a business deal.

When my mother died on the 21st October 1984, my
father took me and my younger brother special because
we are motherless. Before the death of my father on
30th June 2000 in a private hospital here in Abuja.
He secretly called me on his bedside and told me that
he has a sum of $22.500.000 (Twenty Two Million, five
hundred thousand dollars) left in a suspense account
in a (local Bank vote) here in Abuja, that he used my name
as his first Daughter for the next of kin in deposit
of the fund.
He also explained to me that it was because of this
wealth and some huge amount of money his business
associates supposed to balance him from the deal they
had that he was poisoned by his business associates,
that I should seek for a God fearing foreign partner
in a country of my choice where I will transfer this
money and use it for investment purpose, (such as
real estate management).

Dear, we are honourably seeking your assistance in the
following ways.

1) To provide a Bank account where this money would be
transferred to.
2) To serve as the guardian of this since I am a girl
of 26 years.

Moreover Sir, we are willing to offer you 10% of the
sum as compensation for effort input after the
successful transfer of this fund to your designate
account overseas.

Anticipating to hear from you soon.

Thanks and God Bless.

Best regards.
Miss Sharon Rex
NB: My junior brother Peter is also with me.

I am MR OMON PETERS, the Director in charge of auditing and accounting section
of FIRST BANK PLC of Africa with due
respect and regards. I have decided to contact you on a business transaction
that will be very beneficial to both of us at the end
of the transaction.

During our investigation and auditing in this bank, my department came across a
very huge sum of money belonging to a
deceased person who died on November
1999 in a plane crash and the fund has been dormant in his account with this
bank without any claim of the fund in our custody
either from his family or relation
before our discovery to this development.

Although personally, I kept this information secret Within myself and my partner
to enable the whole plans and idea be
profitable and successful during the time
of execution. The said amount was USD$30m

I am glad to say that with the introduction of Internet and website, I was
opportuned and pleasured to have come across your
Contact through this satellite media. As it may Interest you to know, Meanwhile
all the arrangement to put claim over this fund
as the bonafide next of kin to the deceased, get the required approval and
transfer this money to a foriegn account has been put
in place. Directives and needed information will be relayed to you as soon as
you indicate your interest and willingness to
assist us and also benefit your self through this great business opportunity.

In fact I could have done this deal alone but because Of my position in this
country as a civil servant, we are not allowed to
operate a foriegn account,this is the actual reason why it will require a second
party Or fellow who will forward claims as the
next of kin With affidavit of trust to this bank and also Present a foriegn
account where he will need the money to be retransfered
into. I will not fail to inform you that this transaction is 100% risk free. On
smooth conclusion of this transaction, you will be
entitled to 20% of the total Sum as gratification, while 10% will be set aside
upon conclusion, to take care of expenses that may
arise during the time Of transfer both local and international like telephone
bills, e-mail bills include the documents fees, while
70% will be for me and my partner.

Please, you have been adviced to keep very confidential as we are still in
service and intend to retire from service after we
conclude this deal with you. I will be monitoring the whole situation here in
this bank until You confirm the money in your
account. And ask us to come down to your country for subsequent sharing of the
fund according to percentages indicated and
to discuss profitable investment oportunities, either in your country or any
country you advice us to invest in.

All other necessary information will be sent to you When I hear from you. I
suggest you get back to me as Soon as possible
stating your wish in this deal.

Yours faithfully,

You *can* report Nigerian Scam mails to law enforcement agencies...Just do a keyword search on Nigerian Scam & you should be able to find a *few* places to report them.

Whenever I see one in my mailbox, I just hit reply & put a message at the top of a copy of their mail (including the traced IP headers):
Sigh! When will you guys ever learn? I've just reported your letter to law enforcment agencies so that you won't be surprised too much when they come knocking on your door. It was nice doing business with you.
