Good day and how is your day ?I just received the confirmation from my
Secretary that the payment has been issued out and was mailed by the
Courier Service. It will be delivered to your address a day from
now according to the courier, and it was my secretary who posted the
payment,but to my greatest surprise,She included the moving fee of other
things bought for my new Home with your payment instead of the actual
amount of the purchase of the Dog,she made out the money order for $2,550.
This was due to the accumulated unpaid transactions undertaken by the mover
in the past weeks and they said they can't come and pick this up if I do
not pay them all together.So once you have the Payment,i want you to cash
it and deduct the money for the purchase.The remaining funds should please
be sent to my mover via Western union the same day you do receive the payment
so that my mover can make the trip over for the pickup at once.You will also
have to deduct an additional $30 to offset the cost of your run around expenses.
I will need your immediate response via email assuring me that i cantrust you to
handle this with care and have the remaining funds returned appropriately.
I am hearing impaired and will hope that your intentions remains noble through
out the duration of this transaction**

Scammer: FOR YOUR KIND ATTENTION.

It is my great pleasure to write you this letter on behalf of my colleagues.
I got your information from a personal search in the internet business index.
I have decided to seek a confidential co-operation with you in execution of a deal hereunder for the benefit of all parties, and hope you will keep it confidential because of the nature of this business.

I am the Secretary of the Contract Review Panel instituted by H. E. President Olusegun Obasanjo to probe/review all Contracts executed and payments made during the regime of late General Sani Abacha. I have been mandated by my colleagues on the Panel to seek your assistance in the transfer of the sum of US$31.0 Million into your Bank Account.

As you may know, the late General Abacha and members of his government embezzled billions of dollars through spurious contracts and payments to foreigners between 1993 - 1998 and this is now the subject of probe by my Panel. In the course of our review, we have discovered this sum of $31.0 Million, which the former dictator could not transfer from the dedicated account of the Central Bank of Nigeria before his sudden death in June 1998. It is this amount that my Colleagues and I have decided to acquire for ourselves through your assistance.

This assistance becomes crucial because we cannot acquire the funds in our names and as government officials we are not allowed to own or operate foreign bank accounts. We have thus developed a, fool proof, legal and totally risk free scheme through which the fund can be transferred to your nominated bank account within a very short time.

The scheme is to use our position and influence on the Panel to represent you as a foreign Contractor beneficiary of the funds. We shall arrange all documentation to support this claim and get Approval for the transfer of the funds for your benefit on our behalf. The scheme is perfected to be 100% risk free and we are sure the funds can arrive your Account within
7 - 10 working days from when you agree to assist us.

You should acknowledge the receipt of my letter through my email address so we can further discuss the modalities of your cooperation and negotiate the charge for the usage of your Account. You definitely have a lot to benefit from this transaction as we are prepared to give you 25% of the total funds as soon as you secure it in your account.

Please, endeavor to give me a telephone/fax number through which we can communicate with you in confidence (in your response) as the need for secrecy is great to this transaction.

We expect your urgent response.

Yours faithfully,

'Niran Frederick

Scammer: Calvary greetings to you in the name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

I am Mrs. Juliet Andreas, named person from Switzerland. I am married to Late Dr. Andreas Dominic of blessed memory who worked with Switzerland embassy for nine years before he died in the year 2000. We were married for eleven years without a child. He died after a brief illness that lasted for only four days. Before his death we were both very devoted Christians.

Since his death I too have been battling with both cancer and fibroid problems. When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of $17.5 Million (Seventeen Million Five hundred thousand U.S. Dollars) with Barclays Bank of Ghana vault with a special arrangement in their vault.

Endeavour to contact me, so that I can link you up with the Barrister involve. The barrister and my late husband has been able to use their contact to make this fund to Barclays Bank on a special arrangement.

So feel free to contact him on maysfield@zipido.com . The barrister's name is Barrister Adegbesan Tunde Melvin. He will furnish you more details on how to receive this fund smoothly.

Recently, my Doctor told me that I would not last for the next three months due to cancer problem. Though what disturbs me most is my stroke sickness.

Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to either a Christian organization or devoted Christian individual that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct here-in. I want this Christian organization or individual to use this money in all sincererity to fund churches, orphanages, widows and also propagating the word of GOD and to ensure that the society upholds the views and beliefs of the holy inspired and infallable word of God which is the Bible.

The holy Bible emphasized so much on GOD's benevolence and this has encouraged me to take this bold step. I took this decision because I don't have any child that will inherit this money and my husband's relatives are new Muslim convert and I don't want my husband's hard earned money to be misused by people I call unbelievers. I don't want a situation where this money will be used in an unholy manner. Hence the reason for taking this bold decision. I know that after death I will be with GOD the omnipotent, the omniscience and the omnipresent. I don't need any telephone communication in this regard because of my health and also the presence of my husband's relatives around me always.

I don't want them to know about this evelopment. With GOD, all things are possible. As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the Bank i.e. Barclay's Bank of Ghana. I will also issue you a letter of authority that will prove you as the original - beneficiary of this fund.

I want you and the Christian community where you reside to always pray for me.

My happiness is that I lived a life of a true devoted Christian worthy of emulation. Whoever that wants to serve GOD, must serve him in truth and in fairness. Please always be prayerful all through your life.

Until I hear from you, my dreams will rest squarely on your shoulders.

May the almighty GOD continue to guide and protect you.

Regards,
Mrs. Juliet Andreas
