Greetings from Abidjan
Before I introduce myself, I wish to inform you that this letter is not a
hoax mail and I urge you to treat it serious. We want to transfer to
overseas account ($160,000.000.00 ) One hundrend and sixty million US
DOLLARS  from a prime Bank here in Abidjan. I want to ask you, If you are
not capable to quietly look for a reliable and honest person who will be
capable and fit to provide either an existing bank account or to set up a
new Bank a/c immediately to receive this money, even an empty a/c can
serve to receive this money, as long as you will remain honest to me till
the end for this important business trusting in you and believing in God
that you will never let me down either now or in future
I am Mr. Willson Victor , presently promoted to Auditor General in one of
the banks here in Abijian cote d’ivore . During the course of our auditing
last week, I discovered a floating fund in an account opened in the bank
in 2006 and since 2009 nobody has operated on this account again, after
going through some old files in the records I discovered that the owner of
the account died without a [Heir/WILL] hence the money is floating and if
I do not remit this money out urgently it will be forfeited for nothing.
The owner of this account is Mr. Keith Lathan an American and a great
industrialist and a resident of Alaska State, who unfortunately lost his
life in the Auto crash in Alaska , which crashed on January 31 2007,
including his wife and only daughter leaving nobody to claim the money .
No other person knows about this account or any thing concerning it, the
account has no other beneficiary and my investigation proved to me as well
that the account is a secret account.
The total amount involved is One hundrend and sixty million US DOLLARS
only [160,000.000.00 DOLLARS  ] and we wish to transfer this money into a
safe foreigners account abroad. But I don’t know any foreigner; I am only
contacting you as a foreigner because this money cannot be approved to a
local person here, but to a foreigner who has information about the
account, which I shall give to you upon your positive response. I am
revealing this to you with believe in God that you will never let me down
in this business, you are the first and the only person that I am
contacting for this business, so please reply urgently so that I will
inform you the next step to take urgently. I need your strong assurance
that you will never let us down, me and a key bank official who is deeply
involved with me in this business.
I guarantee you that this transaction will be executed under a legitimate
arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. The bank
official will destroy all documents of the transaction immediately you
receive this money leaving no trace to any place. I will use my position
and influence to obtain all legal approvals for onward transfer of this
money to your account with appropriate clearance from the relevant
ministries and foreign exchange departments   At the conclusion of this
business, you will be given 30% of the total amount, 70% will be for us.
I look forward to your earliest reply,
Best Regards
Willson Victor.

Greetings!!! my husband relatives are bourgeois

Once Again It’s Time To Play Let’s Count The Typos!

From: Lady Sarah Boyd (
Subject: Greetings!!!

May this email meet you in good health.

I am Lady. Sarah Boyd, I am married to Sir Steve Boyd who is an Englishman though dead now. My Husband was a principal consultant for over two decade before the cold hand of death took him away on the 23rd of August 2004 at about 2:00AM. Our marriage lasted for over a decade without any fruit of the womb. My husband died after a protracted illness.

My husband and I made a vow to uplift the down-trodden and the less-privileged individuals within the United Kingdom, Europe, North and South America, Africa and the rest of the globe as he had passion for persons who can not help themselves due to physical disability or financial predicament. I can adduce this to the fact that he needed a Child from this relationship, which never came. When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of 2.8 Million (Two Million Eight Hundred Thousand Great Britain Pounds Sterling with a Financial Firm in Europe. Presently, this money is still with the Firm. Recently, my Doctor told me that I have a limited numbered of days on earth and that my life span will not exceed 150days due to the cancerous problems I am suffering from. With this hard reality that has befallen my family and I, I have decided to donate this fund to a non-governmental, or a non religious, and or a non profit organization or better still an individual with the fear of God that will utilize this money

I took this decision because I do not have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are bourgeois and they have know feelings for human talk less of having the fear of God, I do not want my husband’s hard earned money to be misused or invested into ill perceived ventures. I do not want a situation where this money will be used in an ungodly manner hence the reason for taking this bold decision. I am not afraid of death hence I know where I am going. I know that I am going to be with the Almighty when I eventually pass on. The Almighty will fight my case and I shall hold my peace. I do not need any telephone communication in this regard due to my deteriorating health and because of the presence of my husband’s relatives around me. I do not want them to know about this development. With God all things are possible.

As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the Financial Firm in Europe. I will also issue you a Letter of Authority that will empower you as the original beneficiary of this fund. My happiness is that I lived a life worthy of emulation. Please always be prayerful all through your life.Please assure me that you will act just as I have stated herein. Hope to hear from you soon and God bless you and members of your family.

Lady. Sarah Boyd.
