RE: TRANSFER OF ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY TWO MILLION DOLLARS U.S. DOLLARS (U.S.$ 152,000,000.00 )

Dear sir

We want to transfer to overseas the sum of One hundred and Fifty two million United States Dollars (U.S.$ 152,000,000.00) from a Prime Bank in Africa.

... remain honest to me till the end of this important business trusting in you and believing in God that you will never let me down either now or in time to come.

I am Mr. Robert Mooma, the Auditor General of prime banks. During the course of our auditing, I discovered a floating fund in an account opened in the bank in 1990 and since 1993 nobody has operated on this account again. After going through some old files in the records, I discovered that the owner of the account died without a "Heir apparent to the throne" hence the money is floating and if I do not remit this money out urgently it will be forfeited for nothing.

The owner of this account who is Mr. Allan P . Seaman, a foreigner and an industrialist died, since 1993,until now no other person(s) knows about this account or could give any documentary evidence concerning this account. As such this account has no other beneficiary and my investigation proved to me as well that Mr. Allan P. Seaman until his death was the manager Diamond Safari properties, South Africa.

However, if you are interested in this business we will start the first money transfer with fifty two million U.S. Dollars (U.S.$52,000,000.00) upon successful transaction without any disappoint from you. We shall also re-apply for the payment of the remaining amount to your account.

While the total amount involved is One hundred and Fifty two million United States Dollars (U.S.$152,000,000.00)only. I would want us to make a first transfer of [fifty two million United States Dollar (U.S.$52,000,000.00) from this money into a safe foreigners account abroad before the rest.

I am only contacting you as a foreigner because this money can not be approved to a local account, without valid international foreign "Agreement", but could only be approved to any foreigner with valid international credentials: passport or drivers license and foreign account because this sum is in U.S. dollars and the former owner of the account Mr. Allan P. Seaman is a foreigner too, thus the money could only be approved into a foreign account.

However, knowing all this, we will reach a binding agreement in this regards. As a matter of urgency, I will inform you the next step to take, while you Send your private telephone and fax number including the full details of the account to be used for the deposit.

I want us to meet face to face to build confidence and to sign a binding agreement that will bind us together before transferring the money to any account of your choice where the fund will be safe.

Before we fly to your country for withdrawal, sharing and investments, I need your full co-operation to make this business a success, because the management is ready to approve this payment to any foreigner who has correct information of this account, which I will give to you, upon your positive response and once I am convinced that you are capable and will meet up with the instructions of a key bank official who is deeply involved with me in this business. I need your strong assurance that you will never let me down.

With my influence and the position in the bank we can transfer this money to any foreigner's reliable account which you can provide with assurance that this money will be intact pending our physical arrival in your country for sharing.

The bank official will destroy all documents of transaction immediately we receive this money leaving no trace to any place and to build confidence that you can come immediately to discuss with me face to face after which I will make this remittance in your presence and three of us will fly to your country at least two days ahead of the money going into the account.

I will apply for annual leave to get visa immediately I hear from you that you are ready to act as directed.

To prove the authenticity of the business I will use my position and influence to obtain all legal approvals for onward transfer of this money to your account with appropriate clearance from the relevant ministries, foreign exchange departments, embassy and security companies.

At the conclusion of this business, you will be given 35% of the total amount, 60% will be for me, while 5% will be for expenses both parties might have incurred during this process.

I look forward to your earliest reply through my email address.

truly yours,

Robert Mooma.

Subject: URGENT BUSINESS REQUEST

FROM: MR. GILBERT UNOH
EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
DOMICILLIARY ACCOUNTS DEPT.
UNION BANK OF NIGERIA PLC
APAPA BRANCH -  LAGOS.

Sir,

First, I have to introduce myself.  My name is Mr. Gilbert Unoh, an executive director with the union bank of Nigeria plc. I came to know you in my private search for a reliable and reputable person to handle this confidential transaction which involves the transfer of a huge sum of money  to foreign bank account.

The proposal is this -  An American, CARL J. HACKSON, an Oil Merchant / Contractors with the Federal Government of Nigeria, died of an undisclosed illness five years ago. Before his death, he was one of our most valuable customers.

He left  a balance of USD$26,233,000.00 (Twenty Six Million, Two Hundred and Thirty three thousand Dollars only).  This said sum of money can only be claimed by Mr. Hackson's wife, children or Next of  Kin.  Efforts make by the Bank to get in touch with any member of his family have proved abortive.  Mr. Hackson left no WILL nor Instructions and there is no trace that he had wife and kids, so his money remains in the vault of our bank.

For three years, I have personally monitored this account and now feel that this is the time to move the whole fund into the foreign bank account.  Therefore, I and my trusted colleagues now seek your permission to have you stand as next of kin to Late Carl J. Hackson so that the funds (USD$26,233,000.00) be paid into your  account as next of  kin.

Be assured that all documents and proves to enable you get this fund will carefully worked out and I guarantee you a risk free involvement.  You will get a negotiable percentage  of the total sum for your assistance.  We shall map out a percentage of this money to take care of minor expenses that could arise in the cause of this transaction.

Please note, that I and my colleagues would resigned our positions quietly in the bank if this transaction is successful.  We put all our hope and the success of  this transaction in you, I hope you will not take undue advantage of us.

If you are interested in this proposal, get back to me through my email address <gilbertunoh@yahoo.com. Furthermore, you must include your...

Fighting For Your Business

This correspondence sent in by Mike C Michaelson on 01/31/02 included a variation which introduced a third party claiming that the original sender is a fraudster, and that he will now take over the process of releasing the funds.

First, Kenneth Osagie of the Zenith Bank PLC., Lagos, tells of a foreigner, the late Engineer Johnson Creek, an Oil Merchant...

... myself and some of my trusted colleagues in the bank now seek for your permission to have you stand as late Engr.Johnson Creek's next of kin...

Ever cautious, Mike replies: 

I am intrigued to say the least of your proposal in which it sounds like your willing to give me money. I think that is great, but I have found most things that seem too good to be true, are to good to be true.

There is always a catch or "fine print" or exclusions, limitations, taxes, etc. And whatever was advertised as free, really isn't. So I was just wondering what is the "hidden" cost? What are the fine details?

I just want to make sure that what I get is what you say I'll get, and that I'm not then liable for the taxes on the whole amount with only 30% to cover it. What actions on my part are required? Do you deposit the money into my US account, or should I have an offshore account? Or do need an account at your bank?

ATTN: MIKE MICHAELSON: 

Going straight to the point, I would like to assure you that the business I proposed to you is solid, genuine and exactly as I presented it to you in my proposal. I have no other intention than to make the business work for the mutual benefit of both parties, you and I. Let me also assure you that what you get is what I said you will get.

Having said that, I would like to inform you that to commence the process of the transfer, you will need to  have an AFFIDAVIT OF CLAIM processed in the FEDERAL MINISTRY OF JUSTICE here in Nigeria to support your claim.

KENNETH OSAGIE
Telephone 234-1-7742705

At the bottom of the faxed "legal" form is a "note" stating that $1250 US$ is required when filing the "affidavit".

After a search found this site he emailed the Zenith Bank to determine whether a Kenneth Osagie was indeed an employee of theirs. Unrelated to that query he received this email.

I am Colonel Elijar Kubu (Retired) head of the security and investigation department Zenith Bank here in Nigeria, I am writing you in respect of $18.5 million belonging to late Johnson Creek an oil merchant contractor who died as a result of a plan crash which you claimed to be his next of kin to collect this above stated legacy.

The Chairman of our bank instructed me to donate the fund to the Nigeria ARMS AND AMMUNITION TRUST FUND... and I don't want to do this, because I being a retired soldier I have seen a lot of wars and doing this it will further enhance war in my country and Africa.

I got to know you are the next of kin after going through your file in my office, mind you my position as the head of this department no legacy left behind by a late person that is about to leave this bank without my knowledge. Your agent here in Nigeria KENNETH OSAGIE, has no power to release the money to your account, it is advisable to stop further dealings with him because doing so you will never receive a penny, rather you will lose. KENNETH OSAGIE has a very bad record with this bank and any time from now he will be sacked. 

This fund is presently under my care, find enclose e-mail attachment a picture of this fund snapped by me for your verification in cash ready to be donated to the trust fund, but if you agree to my terms and conditions I won't do as my chairman instructed me to do. Feel free to get back to me through the above e-mail so you can finalize on how you will receive this fund or you can call me on my private mobile number is 234-8033010662 so we can discuss. You should hasten-up for there is no time to waste. Waiting for your response.

JCH has been kind enough to send along copies of the documentation you will receive at various stages of the Dead Foreigner scam involving Allan P. Seaman, owner of Diamond Safari (PTY) S.A. starting with an Affidavit of Facts Beneficiary Oath swearing that you are his next of kin.

Then of course you need the Death Certificate and the Letters of Administration Probate Form which has to be processed through the High Court of Johannesburg, South Africa by your appointed Barrister Michael Moss.

Eventually the funds need to be processed through the Ministry of Finance at 12-13 Highland Road, Pretoria, S. A. Your proof that funds are on the way comes in the form of a Foreign Exchange Department Payment Schedule.


... our Application for Payment was well received and Approved, but the Bank needs two things  

1. Death Certificate
 2 Letter of Administration or WILL

... have concluded discussions with the medical professor at the university teaching hospital and the lawyer.

... issued us medical report and death certificate of late Seaman and I have collected the draft copy of the affidavit of support from the lawyer, he will tomorrow go to the high court to swear the affidavit in your name, after which he will apply to the probate registry for the letter of administration to be issued in your name.

I will pay the lawyer and the medical professor and will also spend huge amounts of money in the ministry to get all approvals and will be sending you all documents as I am getting them from the appropriate authorities.  

... When approvals are in your name as beneficiary, you will be required to come here or go to the foreign payment office attached to the embassy in Holland to sign the final fund release order  form and to pay the 0.1% stamp duty charge to the ministry of justice for the original letter of administration to be issued you together with the international fund clearance certificate to show to your bank that the money going into your a/c is clean, genuine and free from drug/terrorism or money laundering.

Yours,  Larry.

... the payment has been approved in your name and all documents are in place...

... already concluded discussion with the Minister... he has personally directed the Foreign Payment Director in South Africa, Dr. Fred Thabo on tel. No. 27-834843825, to attend to you personally for 5% commission... do anything he asks...

According to the Minister, you are required to go to South Africa with...

1) Photocopy of your ID. or International passport. 
2) $52,050.00 USD official payment for Stamp Duty Charge  
3) 2 passport Pictures.

... Any expenses you make regarding the transfer of this money... note it down because as soon as you receive the Funds we will settle expenses first before sharing.

Secondly you should not for any reason compare this business with a scam. Stop making such unnecessary comments. While I am busy here paying all the expenses there you are trying to classify our business as scam.

If you are not capable you should not hesitate to inform me so I can look for another person or you should just call the US bank to verify that your money is there.
