This is a general warning that mainly would effect business people worldwide, though their is a high chance that a regular individual could be effected as well. If you recieve an email message containing any similar language like the below letters, report them to the Secret Service in the Unitied States or simply delete the email message. Do not feel sorry for these guys, they are nothing more than scam artists out to take your money. Their stories are bull shit and they will try to make you believe they are really in trouble, don't fall for thier scams!!
Note: There are several variations of the 419 scam. Another one of their ploys is the UK lottery where they tell you that you have won the lottery and to contact them. Report any suspicious emails to your local and federal authorities!
Example letters below:
I know that this letter will come to you as a surprise due to the fact that we have not yet met each other before, but please I will like you to consider my present family troubles and be rest assured that there is no cause for alarm. Please put yourself in my position and help me the way you will expect people to assist you to redeem your family's wealth.I am Mr. Samuel Savimbi, son of the late rebel leader Jonas Savimbi of Angola who was killed on the 22nd of February 2002. Presently, I am desperately looking for a trustworthy person to assist me in this confidential business. My late father, Jonas Savimbi lodged huge sums of money realized from the sales of diamonds and other precious stones / metals in different banks in Europe. My father is presently no more, and the movement of his family members (including me) is highly restricted, all his bank accounts and properties have been frozen and seized. We are forbidden to either travel abroad or out of our immediate localities. Presently, I have just discovered a huge deposit made by my father from the money realized from the last sales of diamonds before is death .My father had deposited this money as diplomatic consignment with a security firm in Europe, I have called the security firm and they have confirm to me that the consignment is with them. I have all the documents with me right now that is be needed to collect the consignment from the security firm, my father has instructed the security firm in his deposit request to release consignment to any three family members which includes myself, my mother and only sister who is also dead incase of emergency or death. Right now my family has given me the authority to do everything possible to get the consignment out as this is the only hope we have now to bring the family out of its present poor financial state. I am therefore soliciting your help to have this consignment collected by you and the funds transferred into your account. I will give you all the necessary documentations to facilitate your collection of the consignment personally.The government has no or will never have knowledge of this business, so there is no need to be worried about your safety. I guarantee you your safety.Once I have your complete assurance that you can handle this, I will immediately send to you the relevant documents that will enable you take possession of the consignments. This will include certificate of deposit and shipment airway bill and all other relevant documents. However, in return for all your assistance we have decided to offer you 15% of the total amount of money as your share and 5% for all your expenses which will include your travel expenses and every other expenses you incure in the cause of this transaction, such as your telephone bills etc,this makes a total of 20% my family has agreed to give to you for helping us secure the money. I am waiting for your response to enable us proceed.
WE NEED YOUR ASSISTANCE.

My name is PRINCE Ken Brawn,I am the operational
manager in account management section incharge of
credit and foreign bills of one of the prime banks
here in South Africa. I am writing in respect of a
foreign customer of my bank who perished with his
whole families on 25TH JULY,2000 CONCORDE PLANE CRASH
[ Flight AF4590 ]with the whole passengers aboard.
There is an account opened in this bank in 1998 by
this great late INDUSTRIALIST who died without a
written or oral WILL attatched to the account. Since
his death , I personally has watched with keen
interest to see the next of kin but all has proved
abortive as no one has come to claim his funds and no
other person knows about this account or anything
concerning it,the account has no other beneficiary and
until his death he was the manager of his company.
The total amount involved is $26,000,000.00 USD
[Twenty Six million United States Dollar ]. We
wish to start the first transfer with
$6,000,000.00[Six million] and open successful
transaction without any disappointment from your side,
we shall re-apply for the transfer of the remaining
balance to your account.
I have secretly discussed this matter with the general
manager of the bank who I must involve in order to
have a smooth and a successful transfer of the fund to
any foreign bank account which you are going to
nominate. On this note, I decided to seek for a
reliable foreigner who will act as the foreign
beneficiary of the fund from the deceased by providing
his/her bank account where the fund will be
transferred for immediate investment on any viable
project as no one has come up to be the next of kin.
The banking ethics here does not allow such money to
stay more than six years without claim hence the money
will be recalled to the government treasury as
unclaimed after this long period of domancy.
In view of this I got your contact through my personal
search to see if you can assist by providing your safe
bank account for the transfer or find a reliable
person who will be capable of receiving such amount in
his or her personal account.At the conclussion of the
transfer 65% of the fund will be for me, I will give
you 20% of the total transfer sum, 10% for charity
both in Africa and in your country while the remaining
5% will be set aside to settle expenses both parties
might incure during the transfer process.
Upon the receipt of your reply, I will send to you a
detailed information about the transaction.I will not
fail to bring to your notice that this business is
100% risk and trouble free and that you should not
entertain any fear as all modalities for fund transfer
can be finalized within 7 to 9 banking days, after you
apply to the bank as the beneficiary of the fund from
I am Mrs.Favour Komi from Ivory Coast. I am a widow with a son.
I lost my husband some months ago. My husband was a serving as the director of the Cocoa exporting board in the federal ministry of agriculture until his death . He was assassinated last january by the rebels following the political uprising.
Before his death he had a foreign account here in Cota d'Ivoire up to the tune of $8.5M which he told the bank was for the importation of cocoa processing machine.
I want you to do me a favour to receive this funds to a safe account in your country or any safer place as the beneficiary . I have plans to do investment in your country, like real estate and industrial production. This is my reason for writing to you.
Please if you are willing to assist me and my only son Franceur, indicate your interest in replying soonest.
Thanks and best regards .
(compliment of the day******)
I humbly wish to seek your assistance in a matter that is
very important and needs utmost trust and confidence. I am
MRS JULLET MOORE,the wife of Late MR.CLEMENT MOORE,who was recently murdered in the land disputein Zimbabwe. I got your contact through network online hence decided to write you.Before the death of my husband, he had taken me to Johannesburg to deposit the sum of US28 million (Twenty Eight million United States dollars),in one of the private Diplomatic company, as he foresaw the looming danger in Zimbabwe this money was deposited in a box as Valuables to avoid much demurrage from Diplomatic company.
This amount was meant for the purchase of new machines and chemicals for the Farms and establishment of new farm in Swaziland. This land problem came when Zimbabwean President Mr. Robert Mugabe introduced a new Land Act Reform wholly affected the rich white farmers and some few black farmers.And this resulted to the killing and mob action by Zimbabwean war veterans and some lunatics in the society.In fact a lot of people were killed because of this Land reform Act for which my husband Late Mr.Clement moore was one of the victims.
It is Against this background that I and my family who are currently staying in South Africa decided to invest the aforementioned sum in viable businesses overseas since the law here in South Africa prohibits a refugee (asylum
seeker) to open any bank account or to be involved in any financial transaction throughout the territorial zone of South Africa.
I am faced with the dilemma of investing this amount of
money here in South Africa for fear of goiong through the
same experience in future both countries have similar
political history If you agree to act as a fund manager for
me and my family, I shall release the sum of US$28 MILLION united states Dollars to you if you meet my requirements. The money is available in cash in a safe trunk deposited with a Diplomatic company, and upon a favorable response you, I shall let you know how you will receive it.
Your commission shall be down payment of 25% of the total
sum, and an annual 10% of the after tax returns on
investment for the first five years. Thereafter, the terms shall be varied. so, if you are capable and willing to participate in this transaction, reach me with the above private phone+0000000000 or email address soonest.
(Please note) your private phone and Fax in Needed For easy Communication.
I know you will be surprised to read a letter from me but please
Consider this as a request from a family in dare need of assistance. I am the wife of late Brigadier BERNAL RICARDO from Angola. I am MRS.JOY RICARDO Writing to you from government Reserved Area (GRA) South Africa.
I got your contact information from a business directory in
Johannesburg Chamber of Commerce and Industry. And I on behalf of my late husband and my only son, decided to solicit for your assistance to transfer the sum of US$20 million dollars, from my late husband into your company or Private bank account. Before the death of my husband, he was a Brigadier in-charge of Arms
and ammunition procurement for the Angolan Army. In his will, he
specifically drew my attention to the sum of US$20 million, which he had deposited, in a safe box of a private Security Company in Johannesburg, South Africa. In fact, he said and I quote my beloved son, I wish to draw your attention to the sum of US$20 million. I deposited the said box containing the fund in a Security Company in Johannesburg, South Africa.
During the war, I was very dedicated and committed to wining the war
against the rebels until when I found out that some senior army officers and government functionaries were busy helping themselves with government funds and properties, sending them to foreign countries. Due to this, when I and former special adviser to the President were assigned by the President (Jose Eduardo Santos) to purchase arms in South Africa, we saw this as an opportunity to divert the money for our personal use. When we divided the money, my share was US$20 million. I did this in case of my absence due to death so that you, AWKA your two sisters and your mother wouldn't suffer.
You should solicit for assistance of a reliable and sincere foreign
partner to assist you to transfer this money out of South Africa for
investment. I deposited the box in your name and you alone with the deposit code can claim it. Your mother is with all the documents, take good care of your mother and your two sisters. Do not disappoint me! Good bye. From this word of my late husband, you will understand that the lives
and future of my family depend on this fund as such I will be grateful
if you can assist us. Now what I want you to do for us as an
international partner is to help us clear this sum from the Security Company using your name as the beneficiary of the fund. You can contact my son (AWKA RICARDO) who is now in South Africa on his telephone
number +00000000 ,for more details.
We have agreed to give you 20% of the total sum for your assistance and
5% for the expenses that might be incurred in the course of the
Transfer and the remaining 75% for the family’s investment abroad which you will also assist us to materialize. Further information and
Discussion about this transaction will commence as soon as you give us the assurance and confidence that this money will be safe when transferred to your account and, please treat this matter with urgency. Thanks and God Bless.
My name is Dr.Roland.Z. Bersson, I am member of Independent Committee of Eminent
Persons (ICEP), Switzerland.
ICEP is charged with the responsibility of finding bank accounts in Switzerland
belonging to non-Swiss indigenes, which have remained dormant since World War
II. It may interest you to know that in July of 1997, the Swiss Banker's
Association published a list of dormant accounts originally opened by non-Swiss
citizens. These accounts had been dormant since the end of World War II (May 9,
1945). Most belonged to Holocaust victims.
The continuing efforts of the Independent Committee of Eminent Persons
have since resulted in the discovery of additional dormant accounts -54,000 in
December, 1999. The published lists contain all types of dormant accounts,
including interest-bearing savings accounts, securities accounts, safe deposit
boxes, custody accounts, and non-interest-bearing transaction accounts. Numbered
accounts are also included. Interest is paid on accounts that were interest
bearing when established.
The Claims Resolution Tribunal (CRT) handles processing of all claims on
accounts due non-Swiss citizens. A dormant account of Hami Ramzy with a credit
balance of 15,800,000 US dollar plus accumulated interest was discovered by me.
The beneficiary was murdered during the holocaust era, leaving no WILL and no
possible records for trace of theirs. The Claims Resolution Tribunal has been
mandated to report all unclaimed funds for permanent closure of accounts and
transfer of existing credit balance into the treasury of Switzerland government
as provided by the
law for management of assets of deceased beneficiaries who died interstate
living no wills).
Being a top executive at ICEP, I have all secret details and necessary contacts
for claim of the funds without any hitch. The funds will be banked in the
Holland, London,Spain or Canada, being a safe for funds and we can share the funds and
use in investment of our choice. Due to the sensitive nature of my job, I need a
foreigner to HELP claim the funds. All that is required is for you to provide me
with your details for processing of the necessary legal and administrative claim
documents for transfer of the funds to you.
Kindly provide me with your full name, address, and telephone/fax. For the fund
to be transferred to a secure, numbered account in your name and country via any
of the corresponding banks in London,Holland,Spain or Canada of which you will be capable of
accessing the funds gradually and transferring to your country and other banks
of choice in the world. My share will be 60 percent and your share is 40 per
cent of the total amount. THERE IS NO RISK INVOLVED. You can find additional
information about unclaimed funds through the internet at the following
The Holocaust Claims Processing Office has put funds in Escrow awaiting
Submission of valid claims for necessary disbursement, I find myself privileged
to have this information and this may be a great opportunity for a life time of
Success without risks.
Thanking you in anticipation for your prompt response.
