Which bank? THE BANK

Sent from: "Raziki Moudila"


Dear Friend.
Greetings to you and your family, I am the manager of bill and exchange in THE BANK, i have a business of 5.5 Million United State Dollars to be transfer to your account for investment in your country , if you are ready to assist me get back to me, i will give you full details on how the fund will be transfer to you.

Be rest assure that everything will be handled confidentially because, this is a great opportunity we cannot afford to miss, as it will make our family profit alot.
It has been 10 years go, that most of the greedy African Politicians used our bank to Launder money overseas through the help of their Political advisers.

Most of the funds which they transferred out of the shores of Africa was gold and oil money that was supposed to have been used to develop the continent.

The Political advisers always inflated the amounts before transfer to foreign accounts so I also used the opportunity to divert part of the funds hence I am aware that there is no official trace of how much was transferred as all the accounts used for such transfers were being closed after transfer.

I acted as the Account Officer to most of the politicians and when I discovered that they were using me to succeed in their greedy act,I also cleaned some of their banking records from the Bank files and no one cared to ask me because the money was too much for them to control As I am sending this message to you, I was able to divert five point five Millions Dollars ($5.5M) to an escrow account belonging to no one in the bank.

Now the bank is very anxious to know who is the real beneficiary of the funds because they have made a lot of profits with the funds.

It has been more than Eight years now and most of the politicians are no longer using our bank to transfer funds overseas,as majority of them are not in power again, because their tenure has expired. The $5.5 Million Dollars has been lying in the bank as unclaimed fund.

I will soon retire from the bank and without wasting time i will like the fund to be release into your account. So that i will come to your country for the sharing of the fund, The money will be shared 60% for me and 40% for you .

There is no one that is going to ask you any question about the funds because everything is well secured by me . If you are interested in this transaction, do not fail to reply me back, but if you are not interested delete my message from your box ok.

Hoping to hear from you soon.
Yours Faithfully,
Mr Raziki Moudila.

A proposal from across the pond

Sent from:

Subject: Please Read And Reply !!!

Dearest Friend,

I am writing you from the tears, sore and pains in my heart to let you know the reason why I picked you for my proposal. I am sincerely sorry if I disturb your privacy with my proposal; firstly I will start by introducing myself. My name is Sarah Smith; I'm 25 years old, I school and work as a cloth maker after my studies, I live in London England. I am the only daughter of my parents, my father died in an auto accident on his way to see my sick mother where she was admitted for breast cancer treatments. My mother gave up when she heard about the death of my father in same hospital where she was admitted, May their soul rest in perfect peace, amen. Before the death of my father he willed his Real Estate & Gas station business to me and a sum of Ј50,700,000.00(Fifty Million, Seven Hundred Thousand Pounds Sterling). After the death of my parents I find it difficult paying my school fees, feeding and taking care of myself as a lady as no one is left to guild me.

I went to the bank where my late father deposited the fund for me to make some withdraw out from the account, I was not grant access to draw from the account due to the clause that was placed on the money by my late father before his death, saying I must be 30 years of age before I will have access to claim the fund by myself or if I am married before the age of 30 my husband will be eligible to collect the money for me or if I could present a trust worthy person to the bank as my relative the fund will be given to the person on my behalf. But today I am only 25 years old I have no access to draw from the account till I am 30 but as things are with me now, I might also lose my life since I can't feed well which is the reason why I am contacting you to help me, Please I am pleading with you to stand in as my husband to claim this fund or if you are married already and still wish to help me by standing as a relative to claim this fund for me I will be more than happy to tell you more on how we are to proceed.

Please write me on this e-mail address :

I will be waiting to hear from you,

With Love
Sarah Smith

Dear Friend,

It is understandable that you might be a little bit apprehensive because you do not know me, Please forgive this unusual manner to contact you, but this particular letter/email is of exceptional and very private nature, as by virtue of my vantage position in Hang Seng Bank Ltd -Hong Kong i have a lucrative business proposal of mutual interest to share with you. There is no way for me to know whether I will be properly understood, but it is my duty to write and reach out to you, TRUSTING
that you will give this proposal a positive consideration.

I am Mr. William Leung Wing Cheung, the Executive Director and Head of Personal Banking of Hang Seng Bank Limited, Hong-Kong with responsibility for the Bank’s financial services to individual customers which cover deposits, loans, trust, private banking, insurance and the Bank’s branch network. I will need you to
assist me in executing a business project from our bank worth US$25.5 Million. These funds were deposited with our bank by a customer of our bank who is a national {citizen} of your country/region, who unfortunately died in the December 2004 Asia Tsunami disaster.

For more on this natural disaster click on these links:-

The deceased account has been declared dormant since 2006 and these funds will be
confiscated/declared unserviceable and turned over to the Hong Kong government if the deceased business associates or next-of-kin did not claim this money; since all efforts to trace any living relative of the deceased proved abortive, i have decided that i will have you claim this money as the deceased business associate/or next-of-kin, since you are from the same country/region and perhaps have some
similarities in certain areas.

Everything concerning this transaction shall be LEGALLY done without hitch, as i was the deceased account Officer and all the relevant documents of this deposit were kept under my care.

Don't ever take a job from any company that hires people randomly via email. And don't take a job from any company whose CEO can't spell his or her name consistently.

Dear sir/madam,

My name is Mr. John Peterson the CEO of JPETERSON HOLDINGS, London UK and i require your partnership representation for our North American customers to help me receive payment with any of your secured medium of payment (SMP) account type( which could be either of home equity line of credit HELOC, merchant account or LOC Account or An Attorney trust account) if you own any of these two account specification.

i am willing to offer you 10% for your service for whatever amount that is recieved by you through this account. I sell my products to my customers in U.S.A and Canada which i find it very difficult in recieving my payments from them in the past as they have requested such secured medium of payment(SMP) I have had a lot of experiences in the past when they were paying through checks and money orders.
We now accepted that all payments should be made by swift wire transfer into a home equity line of credit account in the United Sates.
The reason why they requested for such account is that the funds will be more secured into such account and the IRS will never question any amount of money coming in or going out of the account.
I need you to be my representative in the United States if you own such account. I will offer you 10% of any of my payment that passed through your home equity line of credit account as i have earlier stated.
You will require to make no expense during the course of this transaction.

This transaction is 100% legal and does not relate to money laundering and is free from Drug money. The amount of money depends on the volume of facilities sold which ranges from US$250,000-US$5Million and above depending on the limit of your account. I will send you detail of the modalities of this transaction as soon as i hear from you.

I will forward a copy of my identification to you as we progress with this transaction.,we are of the opinion that the ability to consolidate payments from North America will eradicate delays due to inter-continental monetary transaction between Asia and North America. Hence i am seeking and requesting for your partnership and assistance to be my executive and regional company representative there in the USA and i will provide the necessary authorization to our customers to get in touch with with you once you have accepted my request and probably have your details in our file here and we are most inclined to commence talks as soon as possible.
Your consideration of our request is highly anticipated and we look forward to your prompt response and acceptance.

Subject: Greetings

Trust you are having a good week.

I would like to introduce you to an opportunity and seek your partnership.

I made some findings that would lead to huge financial rewards and I have outlined plans in conjunction with a colleague in the cargo handling department to legally assign a beneficiary to a box deposited with us for onward delivery. This deposit was made by our customer who passed on sometime ago. We have confirmation that the content of the box is neatly stuffed money originating from various contracting jobs he executed.

I am writing basically because he departed leaving no will.

At the moment, it is in our company storage-facility without a claimant. The content was not officially declared; therefore it is better to put it into use for good purposes rather than let it remain in the vaults. You will be given complete procedural details of how we intend to genuinely achieve this objective.

I do not have information about your competence, but this is a great opportunity that can be consummated on the background of sincerity and openness.

Please reply if invitation is accepted; so we can give you more details.

Another scam based on a bogus military scenario

BTW, it would suck is there really is a Sergeant Major Adriana Bernard, the name used in this fairly weak scam appeal. Plus, it's likely the currency in this scenario would be pretty conspicuous as the currency of Iraq was changed in 2003. I'm not saying it's like Confederate money, but someone trying to exchange that much in pre-2003 dinars might find a good deal of questions. Fortunately you wouldn't have actually have that problem, you'd just be out some shipping fee from Thailand to your home.

Sent from:

Dear Beloved,

My name is Sergeant Major Adriana Bernard. I am an American soldier with Swiss background, serving in the military with the army 3rd infantry division. With a very desperate need for assistance, I have summed up courage to contact you. I found your contact particulars in an address journal. I am seeking your kind assistance to move the sum of ( $ 2.2 million USD )Two million, two hundred united states dollars to you, as far as  I can be assured that my share will be safe in your care until I complete my service here, this is no stolen money, and there are no danger involved. I am presently in a hospital recovering from injuries sustained in a suicide bomb attack.

Source of money:

Some money in various currencies was discovered in barrels at a farmhouse near one of Saddam's old palaces in Tikrit-Iraq during a rescue operation, and it was agreed by staff Sgt Edward Darrell and I that some part of this money be shared among both of us before informing anybody about  it since both of us saw the money first. This was quite an illegal thing to do, but I tell you what? No compensation can make up for the risk we have taken with our lives in this hell hole.. Of which my brother in-law was killed by a road side bomb last week.

Please view website for confirmation;

The above figure was given to me as my share, and to conceal this kind of money became a problem for me, so with the help of a British contact working here and his office enjoy some immunity, I was able to move the money to a Bank in bangkok thailand as a diplomatic baggage. They are now waiting for us to provide the name of beneficiary who they will transfer the funds to. The reason i want you to claim the funds on my behalf is that as a soldier, i cannot present a concrete evidence on how i made such a big amount of money down here. Besides the US Government is trying their best to keep their eyes on soldiers here inorder to effect a high level of discipline among us.The moment I am sure that you are willing to assist me, i will give you the information of the Bank and the security code of the baggage.I want you to tell me how much you will take from this money for the assistance you will give to me.

One passionate appeal I will make to you is not to discuss this matter with anybody, should you have reasons to reject this offer, please and please destroy this message as any leakage of this information will be too bad for us soldiers here in Iraq. I do not know how long we will remain here, and i have been shot, wounded and survived two suicide bomb attacks by the special grace of God, this and other reasons i will mention later has prompted me to reach out for help, i honestly want this matter to be resolved immediately, please contact me as soon as possible, my only way of communication is email.

Yours in Service.
