In my occasional replies to 419 emailers I generally inform them that I am on death row in the federal pen, but would be delighted if they could truck the cash over in bags and deliver it personally so I can take it all to hell with me.

For some odd reason I never get a reply to that appeal.
Re: 4.1.9. Letters "From My Inbox". by nateevs(m): 12:05am On Jul 01, 2007
This is mine

HELLO Good day,

I am writing this letter in confidence believing that if it is the wish of God for you to help me and my family, God almighty will bless and reward you aboundantly and you would never regret this I am a female student from University of Senegal,Dakar. I am 25 yrs old. I am like any person who can be caring, loving and home oriented despite the fact that I am from royal family.
I will love to have a long-term relationship with you and to know more about you. I would like to build up a solid foundation with you in time coming if you can be able to help me in
this transaction.

Well, my father died earlier ten months ago and left I and my junior brother behind. He was a king, which our town citizens titled him over sixteen years before his death.

I was a princess to him and I am the only person who can take care of his wealth now because my junior brother is still young and my mother is not literate enough to know all my father's wealth. He left the sum of USD 22,000,000 dollars (TWENTY TWO MILLION US
DOLLARS)in a security company.


This money was annually paid into my late fathers account from Shell petroleum evelopment company (spdc)and chevron oil company operating in our locality for the compensation of youth and community development in our jurisdiction.

I don't know how and what I will do to invest this money somewhere in abroad, so that my father's kindred will not take over what belongs to my father and our family, which they were planning to do without my present because I am a female as stated by our culture
in the town.

Now,i urgently need your humble assistance to move this money from the security company to your bank account, That is why I felt happy when I saw your contact because I strongly believe that by the grace of God, you will help me invest this money wisely.

I am ready to pay 20% of the total amount to you if you help us in this transaction and nother 10% interest of Annual After Income to you, for handling this transaction for us, which you will strongly have absolute control over. If you can handle this project sincerely and also willing to assist me in lifting this fund, kindly reach me.

Please, note that this transaction is 100% risk free and I hope to commence the transaction as quick as possible, I will send you my photograph as soon as I hear from you.

Yours sincerely,
Princess Rosemary


I told whoever it was to send the 20% through western union upfront and then we take it from there.

Here's mine

From the desk of: Eng.Hassan Steven
Executive Director/Financial Controller
Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation(NNPC)
Falomo Office Annex
Telphone, +234-8034954491
Lagos Nigeria
Dear Sir,

REQUEST FOR URGENT BUSINESS RELATIONSHIP

I am the financial controller of Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation
(NNPC). I got your Contact address from an associate working with the
Nigerian Export Promotion Council. I and my colleagues are ministry
officials in charge of offshore remittance in this Corporation (NNPC). We
are seeking your assistance to transfer of Eighteen Million Seven Eighty
(US$18,780,) to your account for further private investment.

This amount accrued from an over-invoiced contract amount for the
construction of an Oil Refinery Sub- stations in Nigeria in 2000 to
expatriate companies. The contract was originally valued for oneHundred and
Twenty Seven Million United States Dollar US$127,000,000.00) but we
manipulated the figure to read one Hundred and Sixty Nine Million United
States Dollars($169,000,000.00) The extra $18,780, is what we want to
transfer to your account.

This contract has been completely executed and the original contractors have
been paid all their contract bills less this $18,780, For your assistance,
we have agreed to remunerate you with 30% because it is impossible for us to
claim the amount here in Nigeria without foreign collaboration. 5% has been
mapped out for any miscellaneous expenses incurred by either party during
this business, and 65% for my colleagues and myself.

It may interest you to know that four years ago, a similar transaction was
carried out with one Mr. Patrice Miller, the President of Craine
International Trading Corporation at number 135 East 57th Street, 28th
floor,New York.10022 with Tel: 212-308-7788 and TLX number 6731689. Mr.
Patrice disappeared into thin air when he received the money. His Telephone
and Telex numbers had been reallocated to other users by the time we arrived
New York for our share. This explains exactly why we will make a concrete
agreement between you and us, should you be willing to assist in thisdeal
that they you will no betary from you with 100% asureance.

All modalities to effect the payment and subsequent transfer of this money
have been worked out. This transaction is 100% risk free but rquires 100
percent confidentiality. This is a golden opportunity which must not be
allowed to slip out of any careless acts and utterances. We chose you for
this transaction because we believe that good friends can be discovered and
businesses such as this cannot be realized without trust. You can be rest
assured that your security has been considered before you were contacted.I
await your urgent response.

Best Regards,

Eng Hassan Steven

FROM THE DESK OF
MR FRANK OKOH
THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
DEVCOM MERCHANT BANK
DIRECT LINE: 234-8033195736
LAGOS NIGERIA

ATTN:PRESIDENT/C.O.E

REF:URGENT BUSINESS RELATIONSHIP VALUED $10.5MAT TEN MILLION FIVE DUNDRED
THOUSAND DOLLARS ONLY

I hope this will not meet you as a surprise, as I know that I have not
heard any previous corresponding with you, but have taken interest in you,
as a result of my choice of investment. I am Samuel Idowu Group Head,
Internal Control (First Atlantic Bank Plc).

This is an urgent and very confidential business proposition. I am seeking
your assistance here to enable me transfer and invest the sum of $10.5M in
LANDED PROPERTIES there in your country. The source of these funds is as
follows:

On June 6, 2001,a Foreign Oil consultant/contractor with the Nigerian
Institute of Mining and Metallurgy, Mr.Steve Diakakis, made a numbered time
(Fixed) Deposit for twelve calendar months, valued at US$10,500,000.00,( Ten
Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) in my branch.

Upon maturity, I sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but
got no reply. After a month, we sent a reminder and finally we discovered
from his contract employers, the Nigerian Institute of Mining and
Metallurgy, that Mr.Steve Diakakis died from an automobile accident. On
further investigation, I found out that he died without making a WILL, and
all attempts to trace his next of kin was fruitless.

I therefore made further investigation and discovered that Mr.Steve Diakakis
did not declare any next of kin or relations in all his official documents,
including this Bank Deposit documents in my Bank. This sum of US10.5M has
carefully been fixed in my bank for safekeeping. No one will ever come
forward to claim it.

According to the Nigerian Law, at the expiration of 5 (five) years, the
money will revert to the ownership of the Government if nobody applies to
claim the fund. Consequently, my proposal is that, since Mr.Steve Diakakis
is a Foreigner and you bear almost the same name with him, I will like you
as a Foreigner to stand in as the owner of the money which was fixed
deposited in my bank.

I am writing you because I as a public servant, I cannot operate a foreign
account, and moreso, my choice of investment, is one of the reasons why I
would want you to assist me, as I will need your assistance to lay claims
and invest these in the Real Estate business, to which any PROFIT RETURN
will be shared under an agreed percentage between the both of us, outside
the normal percentage to be agreed on for your assistance.

I want to present you as the owner of the funds so you can be able to claim
them. This is simple. I will like you to provide immediately your full names
and address, as well as phone and fax numbers, so that all the necessary
document can be prepared , which will put you in place as the beneficiary
of the funds.

The money will be moved out for us to share in the ratio of 80% for me and
20% for you. The document work for this transaction will be done in
accordance to the law of the land and this guarantees the successful
execution of this transaction. If you are interested, please endeavor to
reply and upon your response, I shall provide you with more details and
relevant documents that will help you understand the transaction.

Please observe utmost confidentiality, and be rest assured that this
transaction would be most profitable for both of us because I shall require
your assistance to invest my share in Real Estate within your country. This
is the major reason why I have contacted you.

YOU ARE ADVICE TO SEND TO US THE BELOW INFORMATIONS

1.YOUR BANK NAME-----------------------------------------------------
2.YOUR BANK ACCOUNT--------------------------------------------------
3.SWIFT CODE---------------------------------------------------------
4.YOUR PERSONAL NUMBER----------------------------------------------
5.ANY IDENTIFICATION OF YOUR'S---------------------------------------

Due to the nature and confidentiality in this Transaction, it should be
accorded all the necessary confidentiality required, as my job will beat
stake in the event of any eventuality. I will pause for now, as I await your
urgent response Regards.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR ANTICIPATED CO-OPERATION.

YOURS FAITHFULLY

MR FRANK OKOH

I later called the people ( i LIVE IN THE us) and when I noticed their accent was nigerian I took the check and tore it immediately. I kept the letter and called them. When I called them today and I told them they figured I was nigerian and yoruba and they started laughing. It was funny since I had figured they were 419. The guy on the phone was like 'no shaking, tear the letter and don't tell anyone' and he started speaking pidgin to me.

But wait o, did u do any online gaming? so y did u expect it to be real? abi u sef wan cash in on a 'loophole' b4?
Re: 4.1.9. Letters "From My Inbox". by denex: 11:38am On Jul 11, 2007
I don't have much beef with our Yahoo boys. I often reply their mails. Most times, when they tell me about these huge amounts of money, I tell them that the Libyan and South African Governments have a financial office which helps to repatriate funds "no questions asked" and they retain 10%. So instead of giving me 20%, why not give a professional 10% and be guarantee of a 100% risk-free transaction.

Still they insist but I tell them am out of the country. So Ask them if I can call somebody I know working with the South African Government and they decline. In my final reply though. I point out their mistakes and urge them to be more professional or get a real job.

The fund was deposited in the financial institution vault because it was ment for reinvestment into his business here in UK before his untimely death.The total amount he deposited in the vault is £22,000,000.00 (Twenty Two Million British Pounds).Being the account officer,the company have ask me to trace the family relatives of the deceased so that the funds will be released to them. I made several efforts through the US High Commission to contact any of the deceased family or relatives, but all my efforts,proved abortive.
This is why I have decided to contact you as a Foreigner to front you as the next of kin by assisting in repatriating this money so that it will not be confiscated and fortified for nothing by the government rather we can use it to assist the less privilages in our society .
The company has issued me a notice to provide the Next of Kin within the next 21 official working days or the fund will be confiscated.I cannot claim this Money due to the transperent nature of my job and I need a foriegner since the deceased is a foriegner too who will keep the deal confidential.This business is simple and 100% risk-free because am going to provid any legal documents or evident that will enhance smooth and successfull transfer of the fund to any of your designated account.
I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangements.Thank's and remain blessed,while I wait for your urgent response for us to move forward and finalize this God Sent opportunity in a timely manner.
Best regards,
Mr.John Hill.

@SEFAGO,

@TayoD
Are you sure? I am on a student visa and I am making every effort to avoid ever seeing the US authorities throughout my stay there.
As long as you are here legitimately, you have absolutely nothing to fear. If anything, I think being knowledgeable of a criminal act and keeping quiet can be taken negatively by the law if found out!

I just think the fact that you had theire phone number and could reach them suggests that they can be caught. Had you recorded the conversation and turned it over to the police, those crooks could well be arrested, convicted and punished. That would rid us of a few more 419ers.
