I AM BARRISTER CHISOM
A SOLICITOR AT LAW
CONTACT ME WITH THIS EMAIL
ADDRESS (chisom_2009@myway.com)

Dear Friend,

I am sorry for the embarrassment this mail might cause you, as we have not
met before. I am Barrister Chisom, a solicitor at law, I am the personal
attorney to Engineer Edward. A, qa national of your
Country, who used to work with Mobil oil Nigeria plc. Hereinafter shall be
referred to as my client.
On the 21st of April 2002, my client, his wife and their children were
involved in a car accident along Kano - Sokoto express Road while arriving
from Easter Holiday to Warri Delta State.
All occupant of the vehicle unfortunately lost their lives, since then I
have made several enquiries to locate any of my clients extended relatives
this has been unsuccessful. I came across your name andcontact, while I was
searching for Edward's relations, since my search did not yield the desired
result, I had to contact you for this project.
I am contacting you to assist in repatriating the money and properties left
behind by my client before they get confiscated or declared unserviceable by
the finance house where these funds were deposited. Particularly, the
finance house where the deceased has an account valued $USD18 Million
Dollars, last year issued me a 12 months notice to provide the Next of Kin
or have the fund consignment confiscated,and this altimatum expires by next
month.
Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over two years
now, I seek your consent to present you as the Next of Kin of the deceased
since you have the same last name so that the proceed of this deposit valued
at $USD18 Million Dollars can be released to you and then you and I can
share the money, 50% for me 45% for you, and the remaining 5% will be for
expenses and tax. Please, find , picture of the funds as was taken by my
client before it was deposited at the bank, because he made the money in one
of the Oil deals he had with our Oil Minister.
Also is the family picture of Engr. Edward. This is just to proof to you
that my proposal is genuine. I also have all necessary legal documents that
can be used to back up any claim we may make. All I require is your honest
co-operation to enable us see this business through. I guarantee that this
will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from
any breach of the law. Get in touch with me through my
emailaddress(chisom_2009@myway.com) so that we can proceed.
Sincerely Yours,
Barrister Chisom

Hello,
Thanks for your reply,how was your day?sure it was lovely.good education you have.i hope you pass some knowledge into my son.I'm ready for payment but frist of all i will like to introduce myself and family to you we're from nigeria and i run a textile and fabrics company in which i inherited from My late Father.... and my company produces various clothing materials,batiks, assorted fabrics and traditional costume and we have customers that we supply weekly in the UK AND OTHER EUROPEAN COUNTRIES.....so i got a contact from my customer who has been owning me and his ready to pay me my money, so i decided that he should send you the cheque on behalf of my SON who is coming down to UK for coaching lesson and to furtherbhis education till university level......I have make arrangement with my relative who based in UK that my SON is coming to stay with her for the period of his education and tha will will be coming to his house to take him and she has agreed with me,But the cheque my customer will be sending to you is a bit more than your total fees the different of the payment will be my SON air ticket fare to UK, i would really appreciate it if i can be able to trust you with the outstanding difference of the money meant for(rayoon) ticket.I would like you to deduct your sum 300 and 50 for some good book you know will help during the lesson( as total deposit to book for your services) and send the exceeding funds over to our insurance travels agency immediately the cheque clear through western union money transfer,so he can make arrangements for rayoon trip to UK immediately for the programme.i want you to schedule my SON by next month.what i just need from you is your FULL NAME.....#CONTCT ADDRESS....#ALL CONACT PHONE NUMBERS (as they will appear on the cheque). as u have said that your fee will cost me 300+50 for books but the cheque you will be getting will include my son's ticket fee and is for 3000 as i have explained to you earlier..
I am sorry for any inconvinence i might cause you, i hope you understand.
Best Regards

So, me being tyhe smartass i am, i had to reply.

::

att: "nest" of kin



Your email fills me with much joy as to know that i am simply one of many randomly chosen to receive your spam promising me millions of dollars if give you my name, address, and most likely bank details as well. The fact that your spelling and grammar is at times impossible to recognise as part of the english language is reassuring, as i am sure your government would only employ someone with a good grasp of the language to offer such a large and generous bounty. As your email is most likely filling up my computer with a virus or 1993 viruses as i type, im not sure how clever this reply is, but i had to express my deepest and most insincere regret over not being able to accept your offer of $USD42 million, which most likely never existed. also, why do you have a uk domain email address if youre from nigeria???????????

yours faithfully,

Why would they actually contact you? You cover anything like this in your current job? Why would they actually need some to bounce money around anyways?

I'd say bogus. If it sounds to good to be true, it usually is.

In general though my thoughts veer to it's not a screw you over type scam, but simple money laundering, which could actually be more worrying with it's possible jail connotations?

enough outside Africa for security and political reasons.I want you to help
me claim and retrieve these fund from the Fiduciary Fund Holders and
transfer it into your personal account in your country for investment
purposes on these areas:

1). Telecommunication
2). The Transport Industry
3). Five Star Hotel, but you still come up with the business you know very
well that can give us more profit.

I am honourably seeking your assistance in the following ways:

1) To provide a bank account into which this money would be transferred to .
(2) To serve as a guardian of this fund since iam an ORPHAN
(3) To make arrangement for me to come over to your country to further my
education and to secure a resident in your country,Also to finish my
Eduacation from where i stoped before the death of my parents.
If you can be of an assistance to me I will be pleased to offer to you 15%
Of the total fund.

Firetramp, as soon as that cheque clears put it straight into another account and disappear smile
Oh...and mines a pint wink
No seriously, take the cheque down the police station first thing in the morning, with a print out of all the thread. You may need to contact gumtree, or get the police to contact them to get the IP addresses of the person who posted it. Even then, they still probably wont be able to do anything.
But seriously, the likelihood is that the crook expects you to put the cheque in your account, then imeadiatly transfer your own money to the next account, only for the original cheque to bounce and be withdrawn, thus leaving you 2500 out of pocket.
Dont go and buy a new tv or car either, as the money wont be coming from your new cheque.

REMEMBER THAT THEY HAVE YOUR OLD ADDRESS frown

also note the two spelling mistakes (in the quote, NOT mine lol )



the double "pp" in "pproved" and the "Pounds

terling" missing the second "s"

Posted:The ? used to represent the "" symbol is standard if the keyboard the original message is typed on doesnt have a pound sign, and so they probably used a "yen" sign.
English versions of windows do not have the "yen" sign in their default dictionary, and so display the "?" instead as the character used wasn't recognised.

I believe.... biggrin

Firetramp, any news about what's happened with that cheque?



The cheque bounced. When I told the guy on the phone, he hung up on me and I haven't heard from him since. (last week)
The bank sent me the cheque back with the message written on it: Theft reported.

Am I gonna get into trouble?


Ask a question and be a fool for a minute...don't ask and be a fool your whole life.

Posted:Hard to tell, I think you'll be ok if you didn't write the cheque and you had no way of knowing if it was stolen money. I think you should call your bank to check what happened though and maybe offer to co-operate with any enquiries. Try not to worry though.
