Dear Friend,Please forgive me for contacting you through this medium without previous notice. I had to use email because it is an easier and more confidential way of making contact for security reasons.Briefly, I am Barrister JAMES KOFI, personal attorney to late Eng. David Weatherspoon a national of your country, He is the chief director of Port of Tema oil refinery. On the 25th of March 2005 by 1:30 pm, there was heavy fire accident at Port of Tema oil refinery all occupants at Tema oil refinery that was at the duty as of that time lost their life's.Before the firemen works came with other security agencies to bring the raging fire under control the body of the entire works got burnt.Since then I have made several enquiries to locate any of my clients extended relatives, this has proved unsuccessful. I decided to contact you to assist in repatriating the fund valued at $14million dollars deposited with TRUST SECURITY & FINANCE COMPANY since the company has contacted me to present someone to stand and release this fund.I can assure you that this transaction is 100% risk free as long as I am concerned as his Lawyer because I am in possession of the deceased personal file regarding his financial matters which contains vital information we will use to prove your relationship with the deceased to enable the fund release to you as his Next of kin.I guarantee that this will be executed under legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law.

From: kamara bangali -

Dear Friend,

Although we have not met, I got your contact through the Internet and
decided to contact you for assistance. I was a Medical student of the
University of Sierra Leone, West Africa. Early in January 2001, the rebels
in my country struck our township and killed my father in one of their
attacks. My late father, chief Ahmed Kamara, being the chief of the Town
was a prime target.

Unfortunately for me, I was in school when the attack took place. I equally
lost my only sister to the rebels. When I got home for the remains of my
father and the subsequent burial that followed, I discovered a document
indicating that my late father had deposited some $25.5M United States
Dollars (Twenty-Five Million, five hundred thousand US dollars) in a
security company in Accra-Ghana.According to the document.

Upon the discovery of this document, I travelled to Ghana to trace the
deposit house and to make claims for the said money as the only surviving
next of kin to my father.Deliberately, I have decided to keep all my uncles
and Aunts out of the issue as none of them will be happy to know I am in
possession of such money.I have succeeded in making the people at the
deposite house believe that I am the next of Kin and all the documents
related to it are now with me.

I do not know what to do with it but I have decided to contact you to seek
your assistance in helping me to take it out to your country and help me to
come to your country to continue my education and so that you will help me
to get the money invested until such a time that I will be ready to begin to
use it. I am really desperate as I am left alone now in the world. Let me
know what you want as compensation for helping me to solve this my problem.

Most importantly, I seriously appeal that you maintain high level of secrecy
and confidentiality in the whole thing.

You can contact me through this email address:

Yours Sincerely
Kamara Bangali .

Donation From Mrs Mariam Coleman

From: mrs mariam coleman -

Dear in christ,
I am Mrs. Mariam Coleman from Kuwait. I am married to Mr. Lobi Coleman who worked with Kuwait embassy here in Ivory Coast for nine good year before he died in the year 2002.

We were married for many years without a child. He died after a brief illness that lasted for only four days. Before his death we were both born again Christian. Since his death I decided not to remarry or get a child outside my matrimonial home which the Bible is against.

When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of $(2.8 Million ) USD Two million Eight hundred thousand in a Finance Security Company here in Abidjan.Recently,my Doctor told me that I would not last for the next Eight months due to cancer problem.

Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to a church or a God fearing person that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct herein. I want a church that will use this fund for orphanages, widows, propagating the word of God and to endeavor that the house of God is

The Bible made us to understand that "Blessed is the hand that giveth". I took this decision because I don't have any child that will inherit this money and my late husband's relatives are not Christians and I don't want my late husband's efforts to be used by unbelievers.

I don't want a situation where this money will beused in an ungodly way. This is why I am taking this decision.I am not afraid of death hence I know where I am going. I know that I am going to be in the bosom of the Lord. Exodus 14 VS 14 says that "the lord will fight my case and I shall hold my
peace".I don't need any telephone communication in this regard because of my health hence the presence of my husband's relatives are around me always. I don't 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 relevant documents that will legalize you to have access over this fund.I will also issue you an affidavit that will proove you the present beneficiary of this fund in the Finance Security Company.I want you and
the church to always pray for me because the lord is my shephard.

My happiness is that I lived a life of a worthy Christian. Whoever that Wants to serve the Lord must serve him in spirit and Truth. Please always be prayerful all through your life and pray to God to forgive me my sins.

Any delay in your reply will give me room in sourcing for another church or a God fearing person for this same purpose. Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I Stated herein. Hoping to receive your reply.

Dear Beloved in Christ


Dear Beloved in Christ,

It is by the grace of God that I received Christ,having known the
truth,I had no choice than to do what is lawful and right
in the sight of God for eternal life and in the sight of man for
witness of God & his mercies and glory upon my life.

I am Mrs.Sheila Johnson the wife of Mr Harold Johnson,my husband worked
with the Chevron/Texaco in Kenya for twenty years before he died in the
year2001.We were married for ten years without a child. My Husband died
after a brief illness that lasted for only four days.

Before his death we were both born again Christians.

Since his death I decided not to re-marry or get a child outside my
matrimonial home which the Bible is against.When my late husband was alive he
deposited the sum of US$3.5M.(Three Million Five Hundred Thousand
with a Bank in Europe.

Presently,this money is still with the Bank and the management just wrote
me as
the beneficiary to come forward to sign for the release of this money or
issue a letter of authorization to somebody to receive it on my behalf if
I can
not come over.

Presently,I'm in a hospital in Kenya where I have been undergoing
treatment for
esophageal cancer.I have since lost my ability to talk and my doctors have
me that I have only a few weeks to live.It is my last wish to see this money
distributed to charity organizations anywhere in the World.Because relatives
and friends have plundered so much of my wealth since my illness,I cannot
with the agony of entrusting this huge responsibility to any of them.

Please,I beg you in the name of God to help me Stand and collect the Funds
the Bank.

I want a person that is God fearing that will use this money to fund
orphanages and widows propagating the word of God and to ensure that the
of God is maintained.

The Bible made us to understand that blessed is the hand that giveth.I
took this
decision because I don't have any child that will inherit this money and my
husband's relatives are not Christians and I don't want my husband's hard
money to be misused by unbelievers.I don't 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 in
the bosom of the Lord.

Exodus{14 VS 14}says that the lord will fight my case and I shall hold my
I don't need any telephone communication in this regard because of my
voice and presence ofmy husband's relatives around me always.I don't want
to know about this development. With God all things are possible.

attorney who
is in Europe as he will be the one to assist you in laying claims for this

Do This In Good Faith

From: Tyron Savimbi -

In Good Faith I Contact You and I quite believe that
life is vanity; the only life worth Living is a life devoted to serve
the Almighty Creator,most merciful, most compassionate and most
benevolent. This is the reason for my present decision that is absolutely based on freewill and humanitarian bases.

I am Tyron Savimbi, the only surviving child of the Jonas
Savimbi, Head of the UNITA Rebel leaders of Angola. My late father
fought the agonizing civil war from the very scratch in order to
protect Angolans,and he was in charge of selling of diamonds and other solid minerals that belong to the rebels stronghold area. This position made him very rich and powerful,that the other rebel supporters of UNITA
became envious that they set my father up and he was killed.
Please click the links below for details
they also executed everyone bearing Savimbi thus making sure that we
were completely wiped out, but glory be to the creator who brought an
aide loyal to my father who met with me and my Mother and sneaked us to Zambia a neighbouring country from where we travelled to UK.

Some months ago, my late mother took me to a Financial
outfit where my late Father had deposited a large sum of money which he acquired during the war and I naturally took possession of it. I do not
want this money to get into wrong hands by means of interstate Laws. My
late father probably did not do things right and fate has dealt with us
decisively.A few months ago I was diagnosedwith oesophageal cancer and I might not have much life left inme but lying here on my dying bed I am determined to do things right to enable me die in a state of Taahir

I want you to retrieve this funds and give it to charity for me.

May the guidance of the lord be with you and your household.

Tyron Savimbi


From: -


My name is Mr. Karl Brader. I trained and work as an external auditor for a Suisse Bank, working as part of a bigger team that covers the entire sub-euro region. I had taken pains to find your contact through personal endeavors.

On routine audit check last month, I discovered some investment accounts that had been dormant for the least twelve years. All the accounts belong to a single holder (deceased) with monies totaling 21 Million United States Dollars plus interest. Banking regulation/legislation in Switzerland demand that I notify the fiscal authorities after a statutory time period of twelve years when dormant accounts of this type are called in by the monetary regulatory bodies. The above set of facts underscores my reason of writing and making the following proposing. My investigation of the said account reveals that the death occured in 1994â€"the exact time the account was last operated. I can confirm with certainty that the said investor died interstate and no ! nextâ€"! ofâ€"kin to his estate has been found or has come forward all these years. I am of the settled conviction that using my insider leverage, with I working with you can secure the funds in the account for us instead of allowing it pass as unclaimed funds into the coffers of the Government of Switzerland. This is especially possible as you share same details as the said investor. This exactly is why I crave your participation and co-operation. I have seized all relevant documents (legal and Banking) that will facilitate our putting you forward as the claimant and beneficiary of the funds and ultimately transfer the money to any account nominated by you. Of course you shall be handsomely rewarded for your part in this transaction as I am prepared to share the deposit with you in halves of the total funds for your efforts, less expenses.I shall however leave out the finer details of this transaction till I receive an affirmation of your desire to participate. Be assured that my colleaguesand I are on top of the situation all the time and there will be no risk whatsoever if you agree to come on board. Needless to say, UTMOST CONFIDENTIALITY is of vital importance if we are to successfully reap the immens!e benefits of this transaction.

To maintain the level of security required to see this transaction come to a successful conclusion, I have intentionally left out the details. To affirm your willingness and cooperation to my proposal please reply to this email (, stating your Full Names, Date of Birth, Telephone Number, Fax Number, Company/position held, Email address, Contact address and Postal address.

I await your response.

Thank you,
Karl Brader

Dear Friend,

This EMAIL did not get to you as an error. In introduction my name is Ivan Moore, an Auditor of Bank of Scotland in UK and also a board member of the Audit Committee. Bank of Scotland is among charged with the responsibility of finding bank accounts in United Kingdom belonging to
non indigenes, which have remained dormant and unclaimed since World War II. It may interest you to know that since July of 1997, the Swiss Banker\\\'s Association announced a list of dormant accounts originally opened by non-Swiss Citizens, followed by British Banker's Association.
These accounts had been dormant since the end of World War II (May 9, 1945), some estimates put it as high as £1.5billion, and while the fund will start off with around £400million. Most belonged to Holocaust victims, some paid in during owner's childhood some belong to someone who has died and so, in theory, belongs to their remaining family members.

A dormant account of a citizen believe to be from your country with a credit balance valued at Nineteen Million pounds sterling (£19million) in my branch plus accumulated interest was discovered by me. The beneficiary on record was murdered during the holocaust era, leaving no WILL and no possible records for trace of theirs. Under Government plans, the banks has been mandated to report all unclaimed funds for permanent closure of accounts and transfer of existing credit balance into the treasury of UK government as provided by the law for management of assets of deceased beneficiaries who died living no wills or next of kin. Under planned changes to the Banking Code and legislation, I have an idea that suits yours, could you perhaps be able to receive these funds under legal claims as next of kin and family member then I will fill you in.

There is no risk involved at all both in the matter as we are going to adopt a legalized method. The funds being safe for use in investment of our choice. Due to the sensitive nature of my job, I need a foreigner to HELP claim the funds, and we can share the funds to ourselves. All that
is required is for you to provide me with your details for processing of the necessary administrative claim documents for transfer of the funds to you as legitimate inheritance from Holocaust era debt. Kindly provide me with full introduction about yourself, family background,
classification, address and telephone/fax for transfer of the funds to you in your name. Am aware that you might not be related to the holocaust victim account holder or next of kin but I want you to stand for rightfully yours as a family member and I will fill you in since I have all the
details and guideline for the transfer proper, this only requires a private arrangement and is a top secret. The Holocaust Claims Processing Office has put funds in Escrow awaiting Submission of valid claims for necessary disbursement.

The request of foreigner as executor in this approach is occasioned by fact that the account holder was a foreigner and no worker in my department by law should act asexecutor or trustee. And please do not be embarrass about how and why you are being contacted and chosen to execute this transaction. The content of this letter is reality, and remember this is without prejudice to your interest. All of these are on the UK
daily mail newspaper and world news at:\\\\?d=367&a=3454
Contact me only on my direct fax or email below as soon as possible to provide you with every information to proceed and succeed.

Yours Sincerely,

Ivan Moore
Auditor, Bank of Scotland, Edinburgh.
United Kingdom.

abroad who wished you good. Richard Griffiths until his death was a member
of the Helicopter Society and the Institute of Electronic & Electrical
Engineers. He was a very dedicated Christian who loved to give out. His

From: allenmoore -

I am ALLEN MOORE, the Manager of Delivery/Operations at the Finance
Security Company here in Europe. Our firm is a private Security Company of
high repute with years of outstanding service to the people of Africa
especially top Government Officials and Military Leaders in Africa and
Asia. I have resolved to contact you through this medium based on business
proposal that will be of mutual benefit to both of us. I have not discussed
this transaction with anybody because it is of top secret. To be explicit
and straight to the point, some time early 1997, a reputable client of ours
deposited a Consignment in our Company's Vault for safekeeping. And since
then our client has failed to come forward to claim his Consignment, which
has accumulated a considerable amount of money in demurrage. Consequently,
in our effort to contact this client to redeem the demurrage, which his
consignment has accumulated, we discovered that our client was the former
President of the Federal Republic of Zaire, who died of illness a
fter he was dethroned in the same year the Consignment was entrusted into
our care.
Since the death of our client President Mobutu Sese-Sekou, none of his
benefactors has come forward to claim the Consignment with us, which means
that non of his relatives or aids had any knowledge of this Consignment. Out
of curiosity I decided to secretly check the box that our client deposited
in our Vault. To my surprise I discovered that the two boxes that were
registered as family treasures by our client actually contained a
considerable amount of money in United States Dollars. The amount I can
verify from the Insurance company when I see you are interested.
Since this development I have been nursing plans secretly to found out
from enquiries and the foreign media that our late client siphoned a lot of
money from his Country while he was in Office as Head of State. It is my
conviction that the Consignment in our Vault was part of the money that our
client siphoned and now that he is dead there is no trace to this money in
our care. I am now soliciting your noble assistance to assist me in
transferring this money out of Europe to another continent or your Country
for immediate investment with your assistance. I have also decided that you
will generously be entitled to 35% of the total amount as i would not want
to be greedy about this money.
Upon my receipt of your reply confirming your willingness to assist me in
this transaction, I will immediately arrange and transfer all the rights of
ownership of this Consignment to your name through the help of my lawyer to
facilitate easy clearance in our security company and transfer of the
complete funds to your Country for onwards investment. This transaction is
risk free. Please maintain absolute confidentiality on this matter. So if
you know you can assist me then forward to me immediately the following
