Two of 'em today!

First, we have from...

From Mr Bamba Kofi
Auditing Department Unit,
Sky Finance Bank Togo.(S.F.B.T)
20, Rue Du Commerce,
B.P.3302 Lome Togo
With Due Respect,

I have a proposal for you - this however is not mandatory nor will I in any manner compel you to Honor against your will. I am 50, and work with a bank (one of the African leading banks in the West Coast). Here in this bank existed a dormant account for the past years which belong to a American national who is now Late Mr.Richard Burson who died on Egypt Air Flight 990 as you can confirm from this web page:

When I discovered that there had been no deposits nor withdrawals from this account for this long period, I decided to carry out a system investigation and discovered that non of the family member nor relations of the late person is aware of this account. This is the story in a nutshell.

Now I want an account overseas where the bank will transfer this funds.Thereafter, I had planned to destroy all related documents for this account. It is a careful network and for the past eleven months I have worked out everything to ensure a hitch-free operation. The amount is not so much at the moment and plus all the accumulated interest the balance in this account stands at-(US$ 1.2 Million US Dollars).One Million Two Hundred Thousand Dollars.

Now my questions are:-
1. Can you handle this project?
2. Can I give you this trust?
3. Mail with your full name,private phone & fax number....

Consider this and get back to me as soon as possible. Finally, it is my humble prayer that the information as contained herein be accorded the necessary attention, urgency as well as the secrecy it deserves.

Note:Do reply me only through my directly email

I expect your urgent response if you can handle this project.

Best regards,
Mr Bamba Kofi
(S.F.B.T) Togo

And the next...


How are you doing? I hope this mail gets to you in good condition. This issue came up & requires serious consideration. I work for the accounts section of my bank. Do you know there is an account opened here since 1990 and after the year 2000, nobody has operated on this account again till date. After going through some papers, I found out that if I do not take out this money it would be lost just for nothing.

The owner of this account is Late Mr. Andreas Schranner, from Munich , Germany who died along with the entire family in July 2000 in a plane crash.

Here is the website which I will appreciate you going through to read the information. No other person knows about this account or anything concerning it, the account has no other beneficiary and my investigation further proved to me that his company does not know anything about this account and the amount involved as he made it his personal account.

The money outstanding before his death was ($25.5 Million) Twenty Five Million Five Hundred Thousand Dollars, I am now contacting you as a foreigner because this money can not be approved to a national with a local bank account here. But can only be sent to any other account because the money is in dollars and the owner of the funds was a foreigner so the management is ready to approve this payment to anybody outside the country who has correct information of this account, which I will make available to you immediately you show your interest.

I expect you to act as foreigner and beneficiary to the fund as I will then intimate you on the processes abound as well as procure all the necessary documents required to lay claim to the funds, If you are capable and willing to handle such amount in strict confidence and trust according to my instructions and advice for our mutual benefit I shall highly appreciate.

I need trusted person in this business because I do not want to make mistakes, I need your strong assurance and trust,

With my position now in the office I can affect transfer of this money to any foreigner's reliable account, which you can provide with assurance that this money will be intact pending until my arrival in your country for disbursement. On the alternative, you can come down here to South Africa for us to meet one to one, to enable us sign a binding agreement.

As soon as you receive this money into a your account, I will proceed to your country for onward percentage distributions and investment.

At the conclusion of this business, for your assistance, 25% of the total amount will be given to you, 70% for me, while 5% will be for expenses both parties might have made during the process of the transfer.

Your earliest response is urgently awaited, kindly reply to my Email address<>

Spam For Lunch!

I get e-mail. How come these esteemed bank officers have such poor spelling?

Mr.Philip Clive
Senior Audit Officer
Natwest Bank Group

Dear Friend,

I am Mr.Philip Clive Senior Audit Officer of Natwest Bank Group UK.Natwest Bank London.I am writing following an opportunity in my office that will be of immense benefit to both of us.

In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of £20.5million British Pounds Sterling(Twenty million five hundred thousand British Pounds) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customers Late Mr.Morris Thompson an American who unfortunately lost his life in the plane crash of Alaska Airlines Flight 261 which crashed on January 31 2000,including his wife and only daughter.

You shall read more about the crash on visiting this site.

Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next of kin or relatves to come over 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.

Unfortunately I learnt that his supposed next of kin being his only daughter died along with him in the plane crash leaving nobody with the knowledge of this fund behind for the claim.It is therefore upon this discovery that I and my coleague in this department now decided to make business with you and release the money to you as the next of kin or beneficiary of the funds for safety keeping and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and we don't want this money to go back into Government treasury as unclaimed bill.

The banking law and guidelines here stipulates that such money remained after ten years the money will be transferred into banking treasury as unclaimed funds.

We agreed that 35% of this money will be for you as foreign partner,while the balance will be for me and my colleague.I will visit your country for the disbursement according to the percentages indicated above once this money gets into your account.Please be honest to me and trust is our watchword in this transaction.

Note this transaction is confidential and risk free. As soon as you receive this mail you should contact me by return mail. All necessary arrangement for the smooth release of these funds to you has been finalised.

If you are interested in this project contact me direct to my email id: with the following personal informations to commence!

Upon receipt of your personal information we will process all the legal documentation in your favor through an Attorney, making you the sole beneficiary and legal next of kin to the said claim. The attorney will represent you in my bank for the reactivation of the inheritance funds on your behalf. He will process and obtain all the relevant legal documentation thereby authenticating you as the legal next of kin to the inheritance funds. After this,the money will be release to you for both of us.

I await the required personal information to commence.

Best Regards,

Mr.Philip Clive
