Be Warned from the International Internet Thieves!!!!

Please be advised that there are internet thieves out there seeking to rob you.   They claim that they have millions of dollars of funds in certain financial institutions, and they wish for you to help them release it.  They promise to give you a percentage of the amount.

They also have the "Omega International Lottery" lie, where they tell you that your email address was picked up from among millions of email addresses, and you won an X-amount of millions of dollars.  Similar to above, they tell you that a problem arised, and that they urgently need a small amount of X-amount of thousands of dollars to execute the process and to release the millions.  Once you pay the amount, you'll never be able to reach them again, nor will you ever hear from them again!  I received a lot of emails as shown below from them, and I further read about them on the internet, and found out about these tricks and deceptions.  Please be warned from them, and report them to the FBI if you can!

BANQUE CENTRALE DES ETATS
DE L'AFRIQUE DE L'OUEST,
14/16 RUE DE COMMERCE
LOME - TOGO.

I am Prof.Koffi Anna,the director in charge of auditing and accounting section of BANQUE CENTRALE DES ETATS DE L'AFRIQUE DE L'OUEST LOME-TOGO in Africa with due respect and regards.I have decided to contact you on a business transaction that will be very beneficial to both of us at the end of the transaction.

During our investigation and auditing in this bank, my department came across a very huge sum of money belonging to a deceased person who died on Nov.1997 in a plane crash (Korea) and the fund has been lying in his account with this bank without any claim of the fund in our custody either from his family or relation before our discovery to this development.

Although personally, I kept this information secret within myself and my partner to enable the whole plans and idea be pofitable and successful during the time of execution.The said amount was USD$28m (twenty eight million united states dollars). I am glad to say that with the introduction of internet and website,I was opportuned and pleasured to have come across your contact through this satellite media.All the adverts and news media in your website is what interest me most to contact you on this very issue.As it may interest you to know.

Meanwhile all the whole arrangement to put claim over this fund as the bonafide next of kin to the deceased, get the required approval and transfer this money to a foriegn account has been put in place and directives and needed information will be relayed to you as soon as you indicate your interest and willingness to assist us and also benefit your self to this great business opportunity.

In fact I could have done this deal alone but because of my position in this country as a civil servant, we are not allowed to operate a foriegn account and would eventually raise an eye brow on my side during the time of transfer because, I work in this bank. This is the actual reason why it will require a second party or fellow who will forward claims as the next of kin with affidavit of trust of Oath to this bank and also present a foriegn account where he will need the money to be retransfered into on his request as it may be after due verification and clarification by designation bank account. I will not fail to inform you that this transaction is 100% risk free. On smooth conclusion of this transaction, you will be entitiled to 30% of the total sum as gratification, while 10% will be set aside to take care of expenses that may arise during the time of transfer both local and  international like telephone bills,e-mail bills include the documents fees,while 60% will be for me and my partner.

Please,you have been adviced to keep top secret as we are still in service and intend to retire from service after we conclude this deal with you. I will be monitoring the whole situation here in this bank until you confirm the money in your account. And ask us to come down to your country for subsequent sharing of the fund according to percentages previously indicated and further investment,either in your country or any country you advice us to invest in.

All other necessary information will be sent to you when I hear from you. I suggest you get back to me as soon as possible stating your wish in this deal.

Respect.

We will use our positions to get all internal documentations to back up the claims .The whole procedures will last only five working days to get the fund retrieved successfully without trace even now or in future.

Date: 10/6/2003 4:09:22 AM Central Standard Time

Dear Sir,

Firstly, I must solicit your strictest confidentiality in this transaction. This is by virtue of its nature as being utterly CONFIDENTIAL.

Though I know that a transaction of this agnitude will make anyone apprehensive and worried, but I am assuring you that all will be well at the end of the day. We have decided to contact you first by your email due to the urgency of this Transaction, as we have been reliably informed that it will take at least two to three weeks for a normal post to reach you. So we decided it is best using the email.

Let me start by first introducing myself properly to you. I am Alhaji Mohammed Bach, a director general in the Federal Mininstry Of Works and Housing(FMWH) and I head a Six-man tender board in charge of Contracts Awards and payment Approvals. I came to know of you in my search for a reliable and reputable person to handle a very Confidential Business Transaction which involves the transfer of a huge sum of money to a foreign account requiring maximum confidence. However, i and my colleagues are top officials of the Federal Government Contract Review Panel; our duties include evaluation,vetting,approval for payment of contract jobs done for the housing Ministry, etc.

In order to commence this business, we solicit for your assistance to enable us transfer into your account the said funds. The source of this funds were gotten from an Over-Invoiced Government Contract during the last military regime here in Nigeria. The excess of the funds, Twelve Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars (US$12.5Million) is what my colleagues and i have decided to transfer into a safe and reliable account for disbursement amongst all. Reasons, being due to the fact that as Civil Servants, the laws of my country, prohibits us "Civil Servants" from owning foreign accounts and moreso, as members of this panel, we cannot do this by ourselves.

In the light of this, my colleagues and i have agreed that if you/your company can act as the beneficiary of this funds on our  behalf, you or your company will retain 20% of the total amount of US$12,500,000 00).

Please, note that this transaction is 100% risk free, as all documentation for success will be duly procured , and we hope to conclude the business in Seven (7) Bank working days from the date of receipt of the necessary information and requirement from you which will enable us commence this transaction fully.You ca also get back to me on my personal email:- ibrahim_mohamed@fsmail.net    

I will bring you into the complete picture of the transaction when I have heard from you.

Thank you and God bless.

Yours faithfully,
Alhaji Mohammed Bach.
