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.
Its so obvious this is a template, one it says Dear. Dear who?
Second on the reply that he gave to me the entire thing is
italicized except for the John. That proves that its a template.
Greeting to you,
I am Dr. Umaru Ahmed from the northern part of burkina faso.I want to seek your assistance after my discovery during auditing in my bank as am the manager of Bill and Exchange at the Foriegn Remittance Department of BANK OF AFRICA,(B.O.A.) In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of USD$10.8million US dollars in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customers who died along with his entire family in plane Crashes since 2000,
Since his death, we have been expecting his next of Kin to come over and claim his money because we can not release it unless somebody applies for it as next of Kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking and financial policies but unfortunately all the efforts proved abortive.
IT is therefore upon this discovery that I decided as the head of my department to make this business proposal to you and release the money to you as the next of kin or relation to the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and we don't want this money to go into the Bank treasury as unclaimed bills.
Do not view this as been illegal but an opportunity for us to help enrich our hope in life instead of the bank converting this much money to the security funds.You should not nurse any atom of fear as all required arrangements have been made for the smooth transfer of this funds and your acceptance is what will crown this effort.We will conclude this operation within 14 banking days based on the amount of coperation you will contribute.
Thank you for your understanding as await your urgent response to enable me
give you more details.
