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.

I bolded a few things on this one. Every time I try to bargain like instead of 30/70 I ask for 50/50, they reply and agree. Everytime I ask for 110% more or less, they don't bother replying.

Dear Friend.

Before I will introduce myself, I would like to assure you that this is Not a junk mail. I hope and pray to GOD that I have the right person.As you read this, I don't want you to feel sorry for me, because, I believe everyone will die someday. My name is Mr faroog yousuf, a merchant in Dubai, in the U.A.E. I have been diagnosed with Esophageal cancer .It has defiled all forms of medical treatment, and right now I have only about a few months to live,according to medical experts. I have not particularly lived my life so well, as I never really cared for anyone (not even myself)but my business. Though I am very rich, I was never generous, I was always hostile to people and only focused onmy business as that was the only thing I cared for. But now I regret all this, as I now know that there is more to life than just wanting to have or make all the money in the world. I believe when God gives me a second chance to come to this world I would live my life a different way from how I have lived it. Now that Godhas called me, I have willed and given most of my property and assetsto my immediate and extended family members as well as a few close friends.

I want God to be merciful to me and accept my soul so, I have decided to give alms to charity organizations, as I want this to be one of thelast good deeds I do on earth. So far, I have distributed money to some charity organizations in the U.A.E,Algeria and Malaysia. Now that my health has deteriorated so badly, I cannot do this myself anymore. I once asked members of my family to close one of my accounts and distribute the money, which I have there to charity organization in Bulgaria and Pakistan, they refused and kept the money to themselves. Hence, I do nottrust them anymore, as they seem not to be contended with what I have left for them.

The last of my money which no one knows of is the huge cash deposit of twenty seven million dollars $27,000,000,that I have with a finance/Security Company here in Dubai.I decided to contact a confidential personality who can remit this money into a foreign account for charity organizations .The money is now in a security company here in Dubai (U.A.E).so i would like you to be of help to us and you will benefit
from it.I have decided to give you 30% of the money for your assistance,60% to to the charity and 10% will be used to cover any expenses that we might incure.

I would like you to provide the following information to me so that we can start the process of money transfer into your nominated bank account.Give me the folowing info:

Once i receive the above informations,i will forward it to the lawyer that will handle the process and the money will be into your account within 21days.Mind you,this is secret and you must keep it secret.And
promise me that once the money is in your account,that you will not sit on it;That you will make way for the money to be used for charity organization by which i contact you for in your country.

Reply fast with the needed informations,
Waiting to hear from you,

Mr.Faroog Yousuf.

Ahh, yes, I've recieved this one before. Lucky for you, you realize its a scam. It's amazing to me how gullible they think people can be.

I once received this from someone in Nigeria. Do they think by changing the country anyone will be fooled?
Actually, all these letters were originally from Nigeria, Nigerian scammers monopolized, but there are others in other countries that do the same. Lots are from England too. I confirmed this by geo locating their IP address.

Sorry Sahib. It doesn't work this way. God doesn't need our money or our "good deeds" i.e., you can't buy or work your way into Heaven. Please get yourself a Bible and turn to the back. St. Paul's letter to the Galatian would be a good starting place.
Oh by the way, maybe you could do the world a service and convince your fellow Moslems to stop murdering people in the name of Allah.
I don't quite know why, but I respond with a form letter that says that I entertain proposals for consulting work only if I receive a deposit of earnest money of $5,000. Needless to say, nobody has taken me up, but at least it fills the spammer's mail box.
Can it be true that there are people who believe in this stuff?

I second that, Cynic!

If you were dying, good works is not going to get you into heaven. Giving your money to charity will not get you in. And being nice to people is not going to get you in.

Scammers are in Nigeria, eh? Good to know!
"Mind you,this is secret and you must keep it secret"

Wow....It's like a line that Nabokov crossed out when he wrote Lolita. I felt dirty. Maybe it was that the line was bolded.
what idiots
I have marked every one of them as spam but they still keep coming how do i getthem to stop? lol
If you do recover all of this money, do you think I could borrow $50?

TY in advance.
Hey nice blog. Wish you well and keep up the good work.
While your at it, visit my blog !!!

Plato the Lapdog vs the Illuminati

I used to see this crap come across the fax machine at work. How do they even find random fax numbers to send this junk to?

What's really sad is that elderly people can be tricked into stuff like this....
When the mind starts to go... I suppose you can't spot a scam quite so easily.
this is hilarious you have a lot of guts to email these scammers back like that i just send complaints to their email providers. i dont have the guts to email them back plus iam not as talented as you with the snappy replies.
I am very sorry for does that fall victim of the scam. My advice for them is to be watchful of what is going on around them. They are nothing but "internet robbers".
They probably find fax numbers online or something.

Also yeah people fall for the scams, a long time ago someone was convinced to go to Nigeria or something and was killed.
they google for email addresses i see them on my blog hit counter all the time i took a screen grab of one and posted anyone can take a look here

also heres a search string from someone in nigeria. the nigerian wound up on my blog today for some reason:
