    Here's one I haven't seen before

    From The Desk Of MR ROBERT KUKU
    Bill and Exchange Manager
    Cotonou,Republic Of Benin. . Tel: 00229 86 79 54.

    Dear Friend,

    AFRICA(IBA) in Cotonou Benin republic. It is my wish to
    solicite your assistance in a business transaction that
    will be of benefit to you and I.

    During our investigation and auditing in the bank, my
    department came across a very huge sum of money belonging
    to a deceased customer of the bank Edmund Miller , a
    citizen of America who died on the recent plane crash in
    Cotonou Benin republic on the 26th of Dec. 2003 VIEW THIS

    Although personally, I kept this information secret within
    myself to enable the whole plans and idea be profitable
    and successful during the time of execution.The said
    amount was USD$18.5m( Eighteen million Five hundred
    thousand united states dollars). As it may intrest you to

    I got your contact through my country chamber of commerce
    and international relations here in Cotonou Benin Rep.

    I believe you will be able and capable to champion a
    business of such magnitude without any problem. Meanwhile
    all the whole arrangement to put claim over this fund as
    the bonafide next of kin to the deceased, get the required
    approval and transfer this money to your account if you
    indicate your intrest has been made by me.

    In fact I could have done this deal alone but because of
    my position in this country as a banker,we are not allowed
    to operate a foreign account and would eventually raise an
    eye brow on my side during the time of transfer because I
    work in this bank.

    This is the actual reason why it will require a second
    party or fellow who will forward claims as the next of kin
    to the bank and also present a foreign account where he
    will need the money to be re-transfered into on his
    request as it may be after due verification and
    clarification by bank officails.

    I will not fail to inform you that this transaction is
    100% risk free. On smooth conclusion of this transaction,
    you will be entitled to 30% of the total sum as
    gratification, while 10% will be set aside to take care of
    expenses that may arise during the time of transfer while
    the remaining 60% will be for me and my family.

    Please,you have been advised to keep business as a secret
    between you and i for i am still in service and intend to
    retire from service after i conclude this deal with you.

    As soon as you confirm to me your willingness to assit me
    in this bussiness i will send to you the deceased bank
    account informations and Application which you will apply
    to the bank for inward transfer of this fund to your

    I will be monitoring the whole situation here in the bank
    until you confirm the money in your account and ask me to
    come down to your country for subsequent sharing of the
    fund according to percentages previously indicated and
    further investment,either in your country or any other
    country you may advice us to invest in.

    Upon receipt of your reply, I will send to you by fax or
    email the text of the application. I will not fail to
    bring to your notice that this transaction is hitch free
    and that you should not entertain any atom of fear as all
    required arrangements have been made for the transfer .

    You should contact me on my private mobile number ( 00229
    86 79 54) immediately as soon as you receive this letter.
    Trusting to hear from you immediately, or My Alternative

    Awaiting you urgent reply.

    Nothing much new there.... He lacks the cash he claims and wants as much of yours he can get his hands on....

    I'm just about to write him a letter for a giggle....


    and the letter read..... (I'm in a fun loving mood... excuse it... )

    Funny you should send me this right now.... Is it fate or what? I'm currently prostrated in the semi-prone, unsupported position in front of an American IRS officer that seems to think that cute little ring-piece I call my ******* is simply there for him to pleasure himself with. It would give me no end of pleasure to pay the bitch off and give him a short, sharp "**** off".

    Send those dead guys bank detail over here right now and let's put this baby in motion.....

    As to calling your number at this point... Forget it.... I'm ex-special forces.... You don't get **** till you pan out a bit.... I'm not ****ing dumb you know.... Caller ID... ;-)


    PS. Where the **** is the Republic Of Benin, it's in Asia, right? Sounds Asian to me....
    Now I just have to remember to check that email account... I rarely use it... but it's a good one... It starts "far213374u"...

    Don\'t SYN us.... We\'ll SYN you.....

    Hey Hey,

    I liked the link to the news article.. it added authenticity, however I think he should have taken into account the information in the article.. That the plan was basically just flying around africa (doesn't seem like a likely place for an American Banker) and it was filled with mostly Lebanese Immigrants...

    I think it'd be interesting to buy some SkypeOut credit and call the number, see who it ends up calling... and if it is the scammer, leading him along for a while.

    It was the link to the news story that lead me to post

    Have not had one for a while, but some time ago I had a good look around some of the wind up a 419er sites, kept me in giggles for a while. Been tempted to have some fun ever since, just nt had the time.
