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

Greetings from Dr. Ayyman A. Hamed,

Dear friend, I am DR. AYYMAN A. HAMED. THE MANAGER, AUDIT AND ACCOUNTING DEPT. BANK OF AFRICA (B.O.A) Burkina Faso .

I hoped that you will not expose or betray this trust and confident that i am about to repose on you for the mutual benefit of our families.

I need your urgent assistance in transferring sum of (USD $18.700, 000.00) into your account within 10 to 14 banking days. This requires a private arrangement; the details of the transaction will be furnished to you if you indicate your interest in this proposal.

This money has been dormant for years in our bank without claim, I want the bank to release the money to you as the nearest person (owner of the account) who died along with his entire family during the Iraq war in 2006

I don’t want the money to go into our bank treasurer account as an abandoned fund. So this is the reason why i contact you so that the bank will release the money to you as the next of kin to the death customer and we share the money together. Please i would like you to keep this proposal as a top secret.

Upon receipt of your reply, I will give you full details on how the business project will be executed and also note that you will have 40% of the above mentioned sum.

Kindly fill this information’s requested below in returns then i will give you more details with application form for the claim.

Your full name: —
Your Country: —

I expect your urgent response if you agree to handle this project.

Best regard.

Dr. Ayyman A. Hamed

    • Rich Fiege,
      These ancient scam “forms” are quite easy to spot. The typos and atrocious grammar, and request for personal info give them away a mile off.

      However, these days, the modern day cyber criminals have enough money to hire (English speaking) proofreaders, and craft undetectable forgeries…
      Just because the grammar is proper and the spelling correct does not make it trustworthy. However, if you should see such as this, beware. If they don’t know what country you’re in (where they sent the email?) or your name.. do I need say it? Run, Forrest! Run!
