419 Scam Letters

This is a collection of Letters relating to the ongoing 4-1-9 Scam. You'll probably get them in your email if you don't have proper SPAM or phisher protection. People writing these are really stupid and most reside in Lagos, Nigeria. Never trust anyone from Nigeria when it comes to doing business online.

South Africa the sum of US$10 MILLION (TEN MILLION UNITED STATES DOLLARS). After the death of my father, we decided to move to the Republic of South Africa where he had deposited the money in the Security Company as valuables.So I decided to contact overseas firm and companies that will assist me to move this money out of South Africa because as asylum seekers we are not allowed to operate any Bank Account within South Africa. We have agreed to offer you 25% of the total sum for your assistance, 5% will be mapped out for any expenses that may be incurred in the course of this transaction while 70% will be for me and my family to invest in your country.All I want you to do is to furnish me with your entire personal phone and fax numbers for easy communication.
