Nigerian Scam Advance Fee Fraud Victim Statement Example
Let Me Tell You, I Am Waiting For You, Expecting Your Response
I wish I had looked up your website far sooner than I did.
Obviously, I wouldlike to know if there is any legal way to get my money back, as I am definitely NOT a wealthy businessman. I was scammed out of $3000, yet after reading some of the other stories from victims, I don't feel so bad because some of them were taken in for much larger amounts.
The names of the Togo scammers are as follows:
AKUDO EZINWA; Kenneth Chiles, phone # 011-228-990-3917 using Greg Bama in his email address.
Domark Security, Lomé, Togo, employees Kokovi Wahi, 228-912-8277;
DR. EMMANUEL CYRIL,
IP address for all of the above is 18.104.22.168
DIPLOMATIC COURIER CONSULTANTS IN HOLLAND,
TEL:++31622173370. FAX ++31206833748
In the last few weeks, Kenneth Chile has repeatedly called me, and the number on my caller ID comes up as 646-536-5516. I do not know if that is a NYC phone number, or a Holland phone number where the "31" did not fit on my display.
Here are the control numbers. All money orders were made out to Dr. Emmanuel Cyril, Lomé, TOGO, except one for $50 which was made to Kenneth Chiles, same location

MRS. DANLA CHILE
324 RUE MEWAY,
TRES VILLE COTE D'IVOIRE.
I know you will be surprised to read from me, but please consider this letter as a request from a family in dare need of assistance. I got your address from Cote D'ivoire Chambers of Commerce.
Firstly, I must introduce myself, I am Mrs. Danla Chile from Cote D'ivoire. I am the wife of late Brigadier Badou Chile My husband was a Brigadier in charge of arms ammunitions procurement in the Cote D'ivoire army.
In his "Will", he specifically drew my attention to US$20 Million which he deposited in a safe box of a private Security Company in Lome-Togo Africa, as a treasure box, fully documented in our first son's name (Mr. Kenneth Chile).
IN FACT MY HUSBAND SAID AND I QUOTE: "My beloved son, I wish to draw your attention to US$20million (Twenty- Million United States Dollars). I deposited the box containing the fund in a private Security Company in in Lome-Togo.
Before the coup d'etat that took place in our country, I was very dedicated and committed to be promoted to the post of personal assistance to the president against until when I found out that senior army officers and top government functionaries were busy helping themselves with government funds and properties and sending them to foreign countries".
Due to this when I was assigned by the President (President Henry Konan BEDIE) to purchase arms from South Africa, I saw this as a golden opportunity and diverted the fund for my personal personal use. In case of my absence on each as a result of death only, you should solicit for the transfer of the fund out of this shore for investment purposes.
From the above, you will understand that the lives and future of my family depends on this fund, as such I will be grateful if you can assist my son who is in Lome Togo for now as an asylum seeker, and the financial laws and regulations of the Republic of Togo do not permit an asylum seeker to operate in a bank or invest.
In view of this, I cannot invest this fund in Lome Togo, hence I contacted you, am prepared to offer you 20% of the total fund, and 80% will be for my family.
Finally, modalities on how the transfer will be done will be conveyed to you once we have established trust and confidence between ourselves.
You can contact my son with this number:00228-947-4975 or his EMAIL ADDRESS: Please treat this matter as very urgent. I await for your urgent response. Cheers and God bless you. PLEASE INCLUDE YOUR FAX AND PHONE NUMBERS AS WELL YOUR MOBILE NUMBER FOR EASY COMMUNICATION

Thanks for your mail accepting my plea for assistance, I appreciate your kind response. My intention is to transfer the sum into your account but I need your credentials to do this. With this we can go on with the transaction.
We made out 10% of the funds to offset any bill or expenses incurred during the cost of transferring these funds so you are not responsible to pay the US tax from your 20%. This is applicable as soon as these funds hit your account in the USA.
Before I go further Let me explain myself clearly, my Late husband Mr. Badou Chile may his soul rest in peace!! was the chief security officer to President Bedie of cote D'Ivoire, the military plotted a coup détat and my husband and two of my sons were murdered.
Before his death the President gave him these funds as gratuity and benefit for the purchase of ammunitions and then he was promoted to personal assistant to President Henry Konan Bediè.
But he was the target of the coup plot and now that he is no more, they want to wipe out his family Kenneth and myself. We are originally from Ivory Coast now called Cote D' Ivoire In West coast of Africa.
Right now we are still hiding in Lome, the capital of Togo. That is why I have asked for your utmost secrecy. I don't want my family to be wiped out of this world.
I want my son Kenneth, to start up a new life so he can put the past behind him and move on with his life and start a family of his own.
I want him to come and settle in your country, and also to have an investment in your country based on your expertise advice and experience, in any kind of investment that will be profitable to you and my son.
If you want the documents pertaining this transaction I will send each and everyone of them to you solely for your perusal and confidentiality.
You can call my son Kenneth who clocked 25 yrs old last February on telephone no: 00228-9022786) so he can explain further to you.
Please see this problem as also your own. May Almighty God bless you and your family.
Mrs Danla Chile.
# 3 06/10/02
I WANT TO ASSURE YOU NOT TO WORRY, I WANT TO LET YOU KNOW THAT A PERCENTAGE HAS BEEN MAPPED OUT FOR SUCH EXPENSES AND AS SOON AS YOUR COUNTRY DEMANDS A TAX PAYMENT YOU WILL PAY FROM THAT AND NOT FROM YOUR OWN 20%,
# 4 06/11/02 WHY HAVE YOU NOT REPLIED? I AM STILL WAITING FOR YOU,
THANKS. MRS. D. CHILE
# 5 06/13/02
Thanks for your reply. You see, I was into deep spirit, after my three days of fasting and praying to approve your mail perfectly for this transaction. However, I would like us to work with one spirit and like a family in order to hatch out this opportunity.
I instructed my son to write you with details. I learnt my mother has been sick for the past week in the hospital. Please assist us and you must be happy throughout your life. Up to this moment we are still having the shock of the death of our father.
I will like you to come down here to Lome-Togo and stand as my foreign business partner and sign the release order for this money which was deposited as a consignment here in a security company.
Legal documents will be forwarded to you as soon as the change of ownership in your name is done but before then your personal address or company name together with your private phone and fax number will be needed.
I will forward them to the security company for the changing of ownership, and immediately we clear this money, we will open an account in one of the Banks here in Lome-Togo in your name then transfer the money straight to your personal account in your country.
I will travel with you to your country for the sharing of this money, and my own part is what you will assist me in investing as you know that I know nothing about business.
I have mapped out 5% from the original amount for expenses that will incur in this transaction, including transportation, telephone bills and any other necessary expenses. I will like you to believe me in this transaction because I know that it is God that directed me to you.
You should bear in mind that this 100% risk free transaction is utmost secret and confidential, so you have to keep it to yourself. Call me on my private phone number for more clarifications, 00228 9903917.
Hope to hear from you as soon as possible. PLEASE DO NOT CALL ME ON THE FORMER TELEPHONE NUMBER FOR IT IS NOW IN THE WRONG HANDS.
God bless. Kenneth Chile.

# 9 06/18/02
I am happy to to have spoken with you. In fact, it is God working it all to have an honest and sincere man like you. You told me you will call me on Tuesday and you did, that is very good of you.
Please contact the security company and let them know you are my late father's foreign partner immediately:
MR. KOKOVI WAHI,
DIRECTOR OF OPERATIONS
DOMARK SECURITY AND INVESTMENTS LTD,
Ask them the possibility of sending the consignment to you by diplomatic agency. As soon as they reply to you get back to me and also send me a copy of the letter you will send to them.
Thanks and GOD bless.
# 10 06/18/02
I AM STILL WAITING FOR YOU, HAVE YOU CONTACTED THE SECURITY COMPANY?
# 11 06/19/02
MR. KOKOVI WAHI,
DIRECTOR OF OPERATIONS
DOMARK SECURITY AND INV. LTD:
Greetings: I am the American business partner of the late Mr. Chile, whose tragic and untimely death I continue to mourn.
It has come to my attention that Mr. Chile left behind a large consignment, which is being held in an account with your company. Mr. Chile's family has asked that his family belongings be entrusted to me.
I would like to know if this can be done through diplomatic agency, to transfer Mr. Chile's family belongings to my U.S. account, instead of me personally traveling to Togo to claim the consignment.
I would appreciate a prompt response to this most urgent matter. Sincerely, Michael McVey,
# 13 06/19/02
WHAT IS HAPPENING??? I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR YOUR CALL OR REPLY TO INFORM ME THAT YOU HAVE SENT THE MESSAGE TO THE SECURITY COMPANY.
PLEASE I WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU. Kenneth CHILE.
Thanks for your mail. I am KOKOVI WAHI, THE DIRECTOR OF GROUP OPERATIONS. We want to let you know that under our agreement with your late partner MR. CHILE the consignment was deposited in the name of Kenneth CHILE, with a charge of $50 per a day for the demurrage which amounts to usd 6,000.50 along with handling charges and safe keeping of usd 3,800 totaling usd 9,800.
MR. Kenneth CHILE has paid an initial deposit of usd 2,500 when the consignment was deposited in our custody so after deducting the initial deposit the balance comes to usd 7,300.
Only the foreign partner is supposed to sign out the consignment, now that he has forwarded your name to change ownership as the beneficiary of the consignment with an affidavit of oath from the high court.
By virtue of right as the beneficiary of the consignment empowered and trusted to you by Mr. Kenneth CHILE, you should come down here to sign and claim the consignment.
In order to assist you and your late partner, if you don't have the money to pay and can not come down here, we can also arrange with a diplomatic agency to cargo this consignment to your country.
If this is okay by you, what you have to do is to pay the diplomatic agency their cargo fees and pay us our handling charges as follows:
DIPLOMATIC AGENCY: USD 3,650.
OUR HANDLING CHARGES: USD 3,800.
TOTALING = USD 7,450.
Give me a call of confirmation. The balance of the demurrage will be paid when you have received your consignment.
We also want your full address and telephone contacts where the consignment will be delivered with two passport photos or copy of your driving license and the pin code number of the consignment,
Scan them to us or send it by fax++228-221-8695. If you confirm you will pay this money we shall send you the certificate of DEPOSIT/CHANGE OF OWNERSHIP THAT IS BEARING YOUR NAME FOR CLAIMS.
Sincerely, KOKOVI WAHI ++228-912-8277
# 15 06/20/02
I AM PLEADING WITH YOU TO DO EVERYTHING TO ASSIST ME.
I HAVE USD1,150. SO WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO IS TO PLEAD WITH THE SECURITY COMPANY TO ACCEPT THAT AS A PART PAYMENT OF THEIR HANDLING CHARGES WHILE YOU PAY THE DIPLOMATIC COURIER AGENCY TO CARGO THE CONSIGNMENT TO YOU.
THEN, AS SOON AS THE CONSIGNMENT COMES TO YOU, YOU BALANCE THEM THEIR MONEY. I THINK IF YOU PUT PRESSURE AND BEG THEM, THEY WILL ACCEPT THIS CONDITION, BY THE GRACE OF GOD,
PLEASE REPLY IMMEDIATELY, THANKS. YOUR BROTHER, KEN CHILE.
# 16 06/20/02
THE PIN CODE IS 07CHI/KEN/4560. CALL THE DIRECTOR TO FACILITATE THE PROCESS.
# 17 06/20/02
We acknowledge the receipt of your mail. Our duty is to serve you better and provide security to life and properties.
We can only consider carrying you on our demurrage balance and accepting the amount from your partner MR. Kenneth, on the condition that you will pay us our balance within 12 working days after we release the consignment to you, without failure. If that is okay we have to send you an agreement to sign with our attorney.
Secondly, we can not take the responsibility of shipping it to you. For your information the diplomatic agency can not and has never carried anything without been paid before taking off.
If you are sure that you will not delay our payment, I will ask you to collect the USD1,150 you said your partner will give us and the USD3,650, so that you will receive your consignment on Monday, because their days of operations are Mondays, and Wednesdays, only 4 times a month
This is all that we can do for you and I hope you appreciate our kind gesture. Thank you for your understanding.
Sincerely, Kokovi Wahi.
Dear Mr. Wahi,
I have e-mailed Mr. Chiles with your offer for him to pay the $1150 to the diplomatic agency instead. However, I have no way to come up with $2500 between now and Monday. The most I can pay is $300, which I can pay when they arrive.
Is there any way you can allow Mr. Chiles to borrow back the $2500 deposit he placed with your company, which, with the $1150, will be sufficient to pay the cargo fees to the diplomatic agency, then within the 12 days you specified I can repay the entire $7300 handling fee?
If you can do that, to make sure the diplomatic agency gets paid, I will make arrangements to meet them on Monday, and tomorrow I will fax my address, phone #, passport and driver's license photos and PIN number.
Sincerely, M. McVey
# 18 06/21/02
It seems you are taking our kind gesture for granted. Do you think we are running a charity?
We wouldn't want to receive that type of message from you again. If we wait till Wednesday and you don't do anything to claim your consignment we shall be forced to obtain a court order to confiscate your consignment.
We have shown to you we are kind and ready to serve humanity but you are abusing that privilege. How can you ask a company to give back money paid as a deposit for a consignment that has been in our custody for the past year?
Do you think we are JOKING? Is it because I suggested that the USD1,150 paid to us could be used to complete the money for the diplomatic agency?
I said that so that you can have your consignment then pay us our money. In fact, what we have to do is to give you the contact of the diplomatic agency. You can contact them to see if they wish to cargo it free for you.
Sincerely, Kokovi Wahi.
# 19 06/21/02
PLEASE DO NOT DO THIS TO ME. YOU ARE LIKE A BROTHER TO ME. SINCE I MET YOU MY MIND CONTINUES TO TELL ME I HAVE MET SOMEONE LIKE MY FATHER WHO WAS A SINCERE AND HONEST MAN, MAY HIS SOUL REST IN PEACE.

PLEASE DON'T DO THIS TO ME. HAVE YOU FORGOTTEN THAT MONEY BRINGS TEMPTATIONS. DO YOU WANT ME TO LOSE IT ALL?
DO YOU THINK YOU CAN ASK SOMEBODY TO OPEN A BOX WITH USD20M AND ASK HIM TO TAKE JUST USD50.000.00 WHEN YOU ARE NOT EVEN THERE. THEY WOULD CERTAINLY TAKE IT ALL.
IF YOU CAN NOT GET THE WHOLE AMOUNT NOW, SEE IF YOU CAN TRY TO SEND ME MONEY FOR MY TICKET TO HOLLAND AND I WILL GO THERE, OPEN THE BOX BY MYSELF, PAY THEM AND SEND MONEY FOR YOU TO COME TO HOLLAND. THEN WE SHALL GO TO THE BANK AND PAY THE MONEY INTO YOUR ACCOUNT.
YOUR BROTHER, Kenneth.
# 30 07/02/02
MY ONLY BROTHER,
I THINK GOD WANTS US TO BE SOMEBODY IN LIFE AND THANK GOD YOU UNDERSTAND ME. IF NOT, WE WOULD HAVE LOST THIS MONEY, BUT THANK GOD YOU REASONED WITH ME.
ABOUT THE AMOUNT, YOU HAVE TO KNOW I MUST HAVE AT LEAST USD500.00.AS MY (BTA). ALSO, I HAVE TO LODGE IN A HOTEL BEFORE GOING TO MEET WITH THEM. HERE IN AFRICA BEFORE THEY GIVE YOU VISA YOU MUST PRESENT YOUR (BTA), CASH OR CHEQUE,
I SUGGEST YOU TRY TO MAKE IT AT LEAST USD1,500.00. I SHALL FORWARD MY DOCUMENTS TOMORROW WHILE WAITING FOR YOU TO SEND THE MONEY FOR MY TICKET AND (BTA).
I THANK GOD FOR YOU. I HAVE BEEN PRAYING FOR YOU. I ASKED YOU TO CALL ME BUT I HAVE NOT HEARD FROM YOU. I LOVE HEARING FROM YOU ALWAYS, YOU ARE MY ONLY LAST HOPE.
YOUR BROTHER, Kenneth.
# 31 07/03/02
THANK GOD FOR EVERYTHING,
NOW LISTEN TO ME VERY WELL, I WOULDN'T WANT TO LOSE WHAT GOD HAS PUT IN OUR HANDS, SIMPLY BECAUSE OF MONEY NEEDED TO TRAVEL OR PAY BILLS, WHILE WE HAVE MILLIONS.
I SPOKE WITH THE SECURITY COMPANY DIRECTOR WHO SAID IT IS BETTER IF I GO TO HOLLAND. SINCE I AM BLACK THEY WILL CONSIDER ME OVER YOU BECAUSE THEY WILL SEE YOU AS A WHITE MAN WITH THE MONEY TO PAY THE BILLS, BUT IF I GO I CAN FALL DOWN AND CRY AND ASK THEM TO PLEASE GIVE ME THE BOX TO COLLECT AN IMPORTANT DOCUMENT SO THAT I CAN PAY THEM.
HE SAID THE NORMAL PROCEDURE IS THAT BEFORE YOU OPEN YOUR CONSIGNMENT OR CARRY THEM YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO PAY, THEN THEY GO TO THEIR WAREHOUSE TO BRING IT.
WE HAVE ALREADY COME SO FAR TO CONCLUDING THIS TRANSACTION, TRY YOUR BEST SO THAT I CAN LEAVE ON SUNDAY. ON MONDAY I WILL MEET WITH THEM, USE WISDOM TO OPEN THE BOX SO THEY WILL NOT NOTICE IT IS MONEY, THEN I WILL SEND FOR YOU SO THAT WE OPEN AN ACCOUNT FOR YOU.
I HAVE THE ORIGINAL KEY HERE WITH ME, MY PLAN IS THAT AS SOON AS THEY SEND THE CONSIGNMENT TO YOU I WILL SEND THE KEY TO YOU THROUGH DHL. I AM AFRAID IF I GIVE THEM THE ORIGINAL KEY, THEY MAY OPEN IT AND GET AWAY WITH MY MONEY.
YOUR BROTHER, Kenneth.
# 32 07/03/02
I BELIEVE IT IS THE ONLY WAY TO DO IT. I HAVE SPOKEN WITH EMMANUEL CYRIL WHO PROMISED TO ASSIST ME WITH THE SUM OF USD,450.00. I WILL SEND MY DOCUMENTS BY TOMORROW.
THE WAY YOU WANT TO DO IT MIGHT NOT WORK BECAUSE THEY MAY HAVE THEIR OWN SYSTEMS.
REV. DR. EMMANUEL CYRIL PROMISED ME HE WAS GOING TO WRITE A NOTE TO ONE OF THE OFFICERS THERE WHO WILL BE OF ASSISTANCE.
PLEASE DO WHAT EVER YOU CAN DO TO MAKE SURE I TRAVEL ON SUNDAY.
YOUR BROTHER, Kenneth.
THANKS FOR ALL YOUR EFFORT, I WOULD LIKE TO TRAVEL ON WEDNESDAY WITH AIR FRANCE. This flight is $785 AND IT HAS BEEN CONFIRMED Flight: Air France flight 851 on a Airbus A340 Jet - 1 stop Depart: Lome, Togo (LFW) - Tue, Jul 09 7:40pm Arrive: Paris de Gaulle, France (CDG) - Wed, Jul 10 6:00am.
PLEASE TELL YOUR MOTHER THAT I WOULD LIKE HER TO BE MY MOTHER AS WELL.
DO NOT FORGET THAT DR. EMMANUEL AGREED TO GIVE ME USD450.00 IF HE SEES I HAVE THE SAME AMOUNT SO I TOLD HIM YOU WOULD SEND ME THE MONEY IN HIS NAME.

# 36 07/14/02
YOU HAVE TO PRAY FOR ME, I LEFT TOGO YESTERDAY BY 12 15PM AND AS SOON AS WE ARRIVED THE MAN THAT WAS TO HAND ME OVER WAS AN HOUR LATE.
SO WHEN HE FINALLY PICKED ME UP TO HEAD TO THE TRAIN STATION, WE WERE THERE WAITING FOR THE MAN THAT WILL TAKE ME TO AMSTERDAM. WHEN HE SHOWED UP HE DEMANDED USD300.
TO LET ME ACROSS AND STAMP MY PASSPORT WHICH I GAVE TO HIM. WHILE TRYING TO STAMP MY PASSPORT THEY DISCOVERED THAT I HAVE NO VISA AND REFUSED ME AN ENTRY VISA AND THEN DEMANDED USD950.00.WHICH I DON'T HAVE.
SO THEY SENT ME BACK TO PARIS AND NOW I AM AT THE AIRPORT WAITING FOR DEPORTATION TO TOGO. IF I AM SENT BACK I WILL BE LOCKED UP IN PRISON UNTIL I HAVE PAID A PENALTY OF USD850.00.
I DO NOT KNOW WHAT TO DO, YOUR BROTHER IS FINISHED. I WOULD HAVE CALLED YOU FROM THERE BUT I HAVE NO OTHER MONEY WITH ME, THEY MAY SEND ME BACK TOMORROW.
REPLY MY BROTHER, IT IS VERY URGENT. Kenneth.
# 37 07/16/02
This is a serious issue, you have to do something to stop him from going to prison. I have already asked Emmanuel to contact you after reading your mail. I am sorry for the trouble you are having.
Yours faithfully, Kokovi Wahi.
# 38 07/16/02
Thank you for your mail through Mr.Kokovi Wahi. I was very surprised that Kenneth was deported, is now in detention and may be sent to prison on Monday. What you have to do is try to call him. I will try to tie into his mobile phone so that when you call he can speak with you.
I have tried my best and would like you people to pay me my money at the end of this month or I will use my influence to call the consignment back to this place.
If the authorities find out that he used another person's international passport to travel it will be another case altogether.
If you really love your brother Kenneth and you do not want him to go to prison on Monday what you have to do between now and Friday is to try your possible best to send USD235.00.
I will use it to obtain a clearance for him as a refugee with the name he bears in the international passport. If not he will go to jail and it will not be less than 3 years imprisonment.
It is up to you to assist him if he really is your foreign partner and brother. In ten minutes I will be with him in the police custody and will hand over the phone to him, so as soon as you receive this mail try to call him.
Sincerely, DR. EMMANUEL CYRIL.
# 39 07/17/02
I did what little I could because of my love for GOD and respect for humanity. If you think it is not possible to get Kenneth out before Monday, he will go to prison and I will call the consignment from HOLLAND back and go to court to obtain an order to confiscate it.
I plead on behalf of Kenneth that you should try one last time to assist him. Kenneth said he has a BMW 5 SERIES worth usd3,300.00 he parked in GHANA and if he is out he will go and sell it and send the money to the Holland people to release the consignment.
If I had money I will not let him to be there for I fear GOD and I am a Christian. Please, for the last time, try your best to do something today or tomorrow, it is important.
Sincerely, DR. EMMANUEL CYRIL.
# 40 07/18/02
I have received your message, and I want to tell you I can not blame you. You mentioned that you think you're are out of your senses, helping me and Kenneth but have you forgotten I actually just work with DIPLOMATIC CURRIER AGENTS.
You and Kenneth begged me to speak on your behalf to the security company to release your consignment and assist to see that it is cargoed to you, which I did.
Now let me tell you, between now and next Wednesday the consignment will come back to Africa. You can go to any authority you like for you are an ungrateful fellow and you are wrong about me. Neither of us knew you before so from now do not ever mail me again. You can contact Kenneth in prison.
About the mail you are talking about, ask Kenneth how it happened. He sent the mail to his cousin saying he had forgotten his password so that the cousin could give me his password and I could send the letter he wrote to you. Now you call me a liar.
From now on I SHOULD DO MY OFFICIAL WORK and not even deal with you. Kenneth told me you are his brother and partner, I never knew it was not the truth. In fact, you and Kenneth are liars and you threatened me.
It's my country so we shall see. Since you first contacted me I have never asked you for money, it was Kenneth that used my name for the western union. Now you are saying you gave me a loan.
Go back to your records and never talk to me like that again, I am contented with the little I have, but I promise, be ready to lose the consignment, it is a promise.
# 41 07/19/02
Listen to me. I have told you to stop saying that you are helping me. What is the matter with you? Why ask me when Kenneth will be released? If you don't do anything today or first thing tomorrow morning Kenneth will be transferred to prison custody on Monday.
For Christ's sake, if I had read your mail before I visited Kenneth yesterday, I wouldn't have gone or given him $100 so he could eat. Now, if you want your friend to get out, and not go to prison, call him on phone and ask him not to spend the usd100.then send him $150.today, latest tomorrow.
Your accusations and insults will not solve the problem. You had better do something to get Kenneth out and do something about the consignment in Holland.
If not, as soon as the consignment is called back it will be confiscated by my organisation, not me. I am not afraid of you informing any authority. If you think you are doing me good, stop it.
I am just an employee. It will be confiscated with a legal backing and you or Kenneth will have no power for further claims, so be careful and mind how you talk.
I am not your mate. I am 55 yrs old, so not your age. GOD will not be happy with you. If you are wise take my advice but if you are one of the fools, continue to speak that way.
The most important thing now is to do any thing to stop Kenneth from going to prison, you are his partner and brother. I didn't know you people before, so be wise. You can reply to me if you want.
# 42 07/22/02
It's not as if I want to be difficult. I am a civil servant and must do things within my capacity to protect my job. I have received your message and I have gone to Kenneth early this morning.
The truth is that it is too late to get him out today. I have just written an application for his clearance and paid the fees but it won't be ready before the end of today, and they will taking them to prison before 12 noon and they will call the case on Friday.
I didn't have all the money myself, but I have collected some from a colleague to get clearance for him. .
So what we have to do is to get a lawyer to get him out on bail. I have already contacted one who charged usd$140.00, so send all this money Thursday.
Let me know when it's arriving so I can pay the lawyer tomorrow so that he will get his papers ready,
I will also try my best to end the case as soon as he is given bail. If you had followed my advice it wouldn't have cost you so much. We shouldn't delay the lawyer's payment, so that he can start working on the documents now.
If they call Kenneth's case and there is no lawyer to take him on bail, he will go to prison. Do not forget that Kenneth is a foreigner here.
I can also pity your condition. It is a pity it is like this, but I believe GOD will see us through.
Sincerely, Dr. Emmanuel Cyril.
# 43 07/22/02
I really pity your situation but you should understand that the total amount you must send is not usd140.00, but I40+65=usd215,00. $65 is the balance of the money you asked me to provide..
I told you I borrowed it from a colleague in the office and must pay him by Friday, while the usd140.00 is for the lawyer. I borrowed it all as you have promised to pay it back before Friday.
Please do not fail to send this money on Thursday or Friday. It will give me courage to continue to assist when I am called to do so.
Also I will try to convince my director general not to call the consignment back, so as to give you an opportunity to go for it in Holland.
I am expecting your response. Sincerely, Dr. Emmanuel.
# 44 07/29/02
I AM VERY HAPPY FOR MY RELEASE AND YOUR CONCERN FOR ME.
I WOULD BE HAPPY TO TRAVEL TO GHANA TO SELL THE CAR, BUT I DO NOT HAVE EVEN $1 ON ME. SINCE I CAME OUT I HAVE BEEN SICK BUT HAVE NO MONEY TO BUY DRUGS OR EVEN TAKE CARE OF MYSELF.
SEEING AS YOU ARE SENDING EMMANUEL MONEY, I PLEAD THAT YOU INCLUDE MY TRANSPORT MONEY TO GHANA IN ORDER TO SELL THE CAR.
THANKS IN ADVANCE. I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO KNOW WHAT STAGE YOU HAVE REACHED WITH THE HOLLAND PEOPLE. I AM WAITING FOR YOU. Kenneth.
# 45 07/29/02
Thank you for your efforts to see that Kenneth is released. I am now backing off from any further commitment, because my organization suspects me of collecting money from you and may decide to delay their payment.
If you do not go for your consignment before the 8th of August they will call it back, I believe it will not be to your advantage, so I advise you to quickly go for it before it is too late.
I have seen your usd15.00. Try to to contact Kenneth who was in my office today. He said you sent usd25,00. I don't like confusion in my life and also he is sick.,
Bye for now. Sincerely, Dr. Emmanuel.
# 46 07/30/02
THANKS FOR ALL YOUR EFFORTS, WHICH I KNOW WILL NOT BE A WASTE. PLEASE SEND USD,50.00, WHICH WILL TAKE ME TO GHANA, AND PLEASE, FOR THE LAST TIME, USE THE NAME OF EMMANUEL TO SEND IT, BECAUSE MY PASSPORT WILL BE RELEASED TO ME ON MONDAY, AND I HAVE ASKED EMMANUEL IF I COULD USE HIS NAME,
DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT HOLLAND ALWAYS. I AM WAITING FOR YOU,
THANKS. YOUR BROTHER, Kenneth.
# 47 07/31/02
I can understand you very well, and I pray that God will guide us and bless us, but my advice to you is that you try all your possible best to pay some money to the Holland people before the10th.
Kenneth is going for the car, but do not forget that there is no person standing by to buy it and he will have to negotiate. I really can see what you are going through.
Since you said the contents of the consignment are valuable try your best to see that you get it and then sell it to cover all your expenses,
Be wise, thank you. Dr. Emmanuel
# 48 08/01/02
THANKS FOR YOUR EFFORTS. I WILL LEAVE FOR GHANA TONIGHT AND ARRIVE THERE TOMORROW. IF I FIND A BUYER I WILL SELL IT IMMEDIATELY BUT IF NOT I WILL PUT IT UP FOR SALE, COME BACK AND CONTACT YOU AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
IN CASE I DO NOT SELL IT IMMEDIATELY PLEASE TRY TO DO SOMETHING FOR THE HOLLAND PEOPLE BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE.
TILL I COME BACK. Kenneth.
# 49 08/04/02
THIS IS VERY URGENT, SO LISTEN TO ME. IF WE DON'T TAKE PRECAUTIONS WE ARE GOING TO LOSE THE MONEY SO PLEASE LET US DO THINGS MATURELY.
THEY HAVE CONCLUDED ARRANGEMENTS TO RECALL IT BACK, ALL BECAUSE DR. EMMANUEL IS INFLUENCING THEM. HE WAS NOT HAPPY THAT THE USD 450.00 HE GAVE US FOR MY TRAVEL TO HOLLAND HAS NOT BEEN PAID BACK AND WE HAVE OWED THE COMPANY A LOT OF MONEY FOR MORE THAN A MONTH NOW.
I PLEADED WITH HIM TO ASSIST US BUT HE TOLD ME THAT THE ONLY WAY HE WOULD LISTEN TO US AGAIN IS IF HIS USD450.00 IS PAID. MY ADVICE IS THAT YOU PROVIDE USD300.00 THEN PLEAD WITH HIM TO CONVINCE HIS COMPANY TO GIVE US TWO MORE WEEKS.
BY THEN I WILL HAVE SOLD THE CAR. I HAVE GIVEN IT OUT TO CAR DEALERS AND THEY ASKED ME TO COME BACK IN A WEEKS TIME. CONTACT EMMANUEL IMMEDIATELY, BECAUSE IF YOU PAY JUST USD200.00, OUT OF THE USD18,000,00.OR MORE WE OWE THEY WILL THINK WE ARE JOKING WITH THEM,
THE ONLY OPTION IS TO MAKE EMMANUEL HAPPY. I HEARD HIM SAY THAT IF WE HAD BEEN KIND TO HIM HE COULD USE HIS POSITION TO SEND THE CONSIGNMENT TO YOU AND YOU WILL PAY AFTER YOU HAVE RECEIVED IT.
CONTACT HIM TO CONFIRM THIS MAIL, IT IS IMPORTANT, THANKS. Kenneth.
# 50 08/05/02
YOU DO SOMETIMES MISUNDERSTAND ME. EMMANUEL DID NOT DEMAND USD250.00 BUT THE TOTAL AMOUNT SPENT ON US. THIS IS A MAN WHO MEANS WELL FOR US.
IT WAS RISKY FOR HIM, BUT I PLEADED WITH HIM NOT TO ALLOW THIS CONSIGNMENT RECALLED BACK WHEN YOU TOLD ME YOU WERE GOING TO SEND USD200.00 WHICH I KNOW THEY WILL NOT ACCEPT IN ANY WAY.
BECAUSE OF THAT I WENT TO EMMANUEL TO PLEAD WITH HIM TO ASSIST IN THIS SITUATION. IT WAS THEN HE ASKED HOW WE COULD CONTINUE TO ASK HIM TO ASSIST WHEN WE HAVE NOT PAID HIM THE MONEY HE GAVE TO US FOR MY TRAVEL.
I DECIDED TO SUGGEST YOU GIVE HIM THE MONEY INSTEAD OF THE SECURITY COMPANY WHICH MAY NOT RELEASE THE CONSIGNMENT AND COULD CALL IT BACK.
HE IS THE PERSON THE COMPANY WILL ASK TO RECALL THE CONSIGNMENT AND FROM WHAT I GATHERED FROM SOME OF HIS FELLOW WORKERS THE COMPANY REALLY TRUSTS HIM.
HE HAS SERVED THE COMPANY FOR MORE THAT 18 YEARS AND IS ONE OF THE PILLARS OF THE COMPANY.
SO, BASED ON THIS INFORMATION I ADVISE YOU TO CONTACT HIM AND PLEAD WITH HIM TO SEE WHAT HE CAN DO BECAUSE WE ARE IN A FIX.
I AM SURE HE WILL DO SOMETHING AND BEFORE NEXT WEEKEND WE MAY BE CELEBRATING WITH JOY. TRY TO SEND THE MONEY TO HIM WITH THE LETTER AS I HAVE ADVISED.
I AM WAITING, THANKS. Kenneth.
# 51 08/05/02
In as much as I would like to help, you people are troubling me too much. You do not consider I am a civil servant and the poor situation here in LOME-TOGO. I will help under two conditions
(1) I can only accept $250.00 as part payment of my money for now because I will need about 50$ to buy a gift for the Assessment Director as if you bought it for him. He is the only person that could oppose me or stand against it.
(2) That by next Thursday the balance of$200.00 be paid to me. This is my own money I loaned to you people. I am not asking anything from you.
If this is done then you can count on me. I will try my best not only to convince my directors but to see that you receive this consignment by next Saturday or thereabouts.
If you like you can send the money to Holland but be informed that our company is not stupid enough to accept $200 as a part payment of the amount you are owing.
I thought you said you arranged with Holland to pay them$1000.00. With that my company could agree to give you some more time to pay at least the amount the Holland people asked you to pay before delivery.
Anyway, I will help with these conditions, please do not let my management see this mail for security reasons. The earlier the better before the10th.
Well, God bless you. Sincerely, Dr. Emmanuel.
# 53 08/05/02
I am waiting to hear from you. Sincerely, Dr. Emmanuel.
# 54 08/08/02
I have gone through your mail and I promise to try my best as long as you will keep to our agreement to pay all my money by next Thursday.
Kenneth asked me to give him usd50 to travel to GHANA on Saturday saying that you will send it to me on Thursday when you are paying me the balance. If he comes back with the car money before then he will pay me back. Do you want me to give to him?
Sincerely, Dr. Emmanuel.
# 55 08/13/02
This is to inform you of the progress so far. Yesterday, management wrote to Holland to make a submission of supplementary transfer order. They have cancelled the withdrawal or recalling order and have decided to give you more time for the transfer of your consignment.
Their discussion included asking you to write to us indicating how much more time is convenient for you. Holland will submit this by tomorrow or Thursday for the board meeting Thursday were they invited me to suggest what we shall do.
That day I will advise them to send the consignment to you on Friday or Saturday. With the assistance of the international director supporting my motion I believe that everything will be ok, but do not fail in your promise to send me my money on Thursday.
If you are kind enough you can as well send me back the USD50.00 I used in buying gifts for the international director. Believe me, GOD is working on your side for the company does not normally change their procedures.
Secondly, you have to write that application asking for one month grace to fulfill all protocols. Address it to the director of operations through Domark Security and a copy to myself, write a letter also to the international director thanking him in advance and feel free to ask him if he has received the gifts you sent to him through me.
Sincerely, Dr. Emmanuel.
# 56 08/14/02
Your mail received and contents well understood. Fax the letter to ++228-222-8776, MR. OKU JAJA. What you owe me is $200 plus $50 for Kenneth's travel and $50 for the gifts. I believe I should not use my money to pay expenses for you.
Holland has sent the letter to our annex office in BENIN REPUBLIC for the director who is in charge to sign it and send to our office.
I suggest we send one of my staff to him with the letter to sign and come back with it tomorrow. Do not forget that the board of directors meeting tomorrow is centered on the submission of the letter from Holland. Without the letter they will not hold it.
So what do we do? If you want me to send him to BENIN REPUBLIC you have to include the transport money tomorrow as you are sending my balance and the money for the gifts.
It is not fair to use my money. Reply urgently because I want him to leave for BENIN today and come back before noon tomorrow for tomorrow's meeting.
I have sent your letter to the international director who is grateful and promises to support my motions.
# 57 08/14/02
Kenneth called me. I have seen your mail. What you have to send by fax is the letter of application for 30 days. Address it to Jaja. I have sent the man to BENIN REPUBLIC about 15 minutes ago after going through your mail.
# 58 08/15/02
I will inform you of everything by tomorrow after today's meeting. You have nothing to worry about. Emmanuel.
# 59 08/16/02
Since this morning I have tried several times to send you a message but we have poor network here
Now listen to me and do take any advice I give you. I and the international director tried to convince the board but the problem is that Holland insisted that their money should be paid to them including the accumulated demurrage.
After much deliberation and phone discussions management came to the conclusion that if $2,700.was paid they would write off the bill for the demurrage as the company's loss.
As GOD may have it Kenneth called me to say he has sold the car for $1,500.00. I told him the new development and he said as soon as he comes back he will hand me the money to put towards it.
Another thing is that Holland sent to us a letter from the DRUG LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY. They insisted that any boxes that have stayed a month in their office be opened before it be sent to the owners.
I told Kenneth these things and that was why he opened up to me and told me the truth about the money inside the consignment. My question is why have you people hidden it from me since I would have found a way out.
With this new information I went and made a strong motion to the management that Holland should not allow the (D L E A) to open the consignment but should let them know that it has been recalled.
I have also contacted a bank that will transfer the money to you as soon as it is paid into their bank. Because of this incident I have asked my director today for 4 days off and I will leave for Holland this night to get the management to keep the consignment as an awaiting consignment for delivery. I managed to convince my management to pay for my air ticket.
I have about $2000 in company cash with me which I will give to them so that they will keep the consignment away until the balance is paid.
Please, by Thursday try to send $500 to me to combine with the $1,500 Kenneth has. If this company money is not paid back the whole secret could be revealed.
I am doing all this things because of God and humanity, Bye, till I come back. Sincerely, Emmanuel.
: At this point I was totally out of money, and so I offered Dr. Emmanuel a share of the consignment hoping he would either negotiate with the couriers in Holland, or ask his company for an extension.
The terms were, I had to have the consignment by the end of August, and he could not put me to any more expense. Obviously, he did not accept.
I continued to insist I did not have $500 to pay him, and I suggested he either convince the Holland courier to accept partial payment, ask his company for an extension, or borrow at least some of the $500 from someone else.
Instead of going along with any of these ideas, Dr. Emmanuel continued his scheme, and claimed the devil was working in me.
# 60 08/24/02
I read and understood what you wrote and I am ever ready to assist where I can. I tried to see what I could have done as per your suggestions before writing you. I tried my best to do as you have suggested even though I know it is against my company's procedures.
I made plans so that if the consignment comes back here after my company's money has been paid I will use the service of the bank to facilitate the transfer to you.
My company has given you one month to pay them before the consignment leaves, but my plan is as that as soon as the Holland people are paid and the consignment is released, not to you, but to my company, I and Kenneth will contact the bank to pay my company and then have the money transferred to you.
If I have not gone to Holland and paid them them some money they would have allowed the drug law enforcement agency to tamper with the consignment. Kenneth has paid the usd1,500.00. He has been very sick although I have not seen him since I came back.
Another thing you should understand is that the offer you made to me is tempting and any reasonable man would accept it but, let me tell you, if the money I borrowed from my company is not paid before this Friday I will lose my job.
And, if they find out that I used it for your sake not only am I finished but you may lose all you have spent so far.
Let me tell you, even if it requires borrowing from the devil to see that this consignment gets back to us here, I promise that the bank will act on your behalf, after you have given them a letter of authority.
But they can not do anything if the consignment is not here and it seems that Holland is not very keen on releasing the consignment until their money is paid.
Please my brother, if I have problems because of this consignment it will be considered betrayal of trust to my company. I have worked for them for several years and they have never found me wanting.
Please let us be reasonable and solve this issue. I would help but as soon as my salary is paid into the bank they withdraw most of it for bills and I have little or nothing to take care of my family,
I hope you will understand every thing I have explained to you. You simply have to put more effort into clearing this consignment.
We can't take money from the consignment because we have no right to open up your consignment and Holland will not allow that until it is out of their hands.
Thanks and be reasonable. Sincerely, Dr. Emmanuel.
# 61 08/25/02
Try to keep the figures straight The problem is not only to pay the $500, but to also make sure the consignment is released. The amount you are supposed to pay to Holland is $2,700, of which $2000, was paid.
The balance of $700 must be paid before they will release it to us. That is the reason I asked my brother to lend me that amount so that we can send it to Holland. He promised to give me the money on the 4th of Sept.
But this $500, if it is not paid back by Thursday or Friday, will get me sacked from my job and that may result in your losing everything and the company may just confiscate the whole consignment.
Let me tell you if I wasn't sure that Kenneth had a consignment with us I wouldn't be involved at all.
Kenneth is very down and was saying that you have abandoned him and that he didn't take even $1 from the money he got for the car. Now he is starving and nobody cares for him,
I encouraged him to bear with you and that by the grace of GOD, before the second week of Sept. every thing will be finalized.
I have no cash of my own because we only receive salaries here at the end of the month. Please, it is as important as life to treat this as serious and urgent. Dr. Emmanuel.
# 62 08/26/02
Please, I want to assure you that this problem is as just as much mine now. I called my brother yesterday and he still maintained his word to give me the money.
Please do not contact Holland again as that aspect is no more your concern but the company's, unless you want to mess up the whole thing.
When I went to Holland I made them understand that you have paid the company $2,700.for them, but that company wants the consignment back for a reason best known to the company, so that they will not allow the DRUG LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY TO OPEN THE BOX.
If you go back and contact them, they will see me as telling them lies. Please do not do any thing to jeopardize this opportunity.
I promise you as soon as Holland is paid the balance of the money they will release the consignment the same day. I am sure on that 4th my brother will give me the money and I will send it to them and have the consignment.
Holland will not accept any part payment because they complained bitterly about the demurrage which our company waived.
Please do have in mind that the most important thing is to have this $500.paid before Friday,
I am waiting for your confirmation of this payment, bye. Dr. Emmanuel.
At this point I saw this website, and told this Dr. Emmanuel the game was over, and he would not be receiving any moremoney from me.
I also said it might be in his bests interests to repay me, or I would ask the U.S., Togo, and Dutch governments as well as INTERPOL to take action against him, Kenneth, his company and their confederates in Amsterdam.
I also told Dr. Emmanuel that an organization here in the U.S. was offering me money for my testimony against him and his company, and the organization would accuse him of not only defrauding U.S. citizens of thousands of dollars apiece, but of using the money to fund terrorist organizations.
I claimed I was trying to save him and his company, and the only way for him and his company to escape this action was to wire me $5000 to repay the money I had invested trying to obtain the consignment for Kenneth, who I now believe is one and the same as Emmanuel Cyril.
I told him if he sent me the $5000, then I have not lost any money and therefore the organization would have no case against him.
Apparently he did not believe me, he said in an e-mail on Aug 29 that he had lost his job and his company would be suing me for the rest of the fees owed on the consignment.
# 63 08/27/02
Listen to me Mike, this is no Nigerian scam or whatever you call it. Do not allow people to deceive you. If I was not convinced about the whole matter I would not be interested and would never be involved.
Listen, you spent your money on this transaction before you and Kenneth opened up to me. Now that every thing is almost concluded you want to back out because of a small amount.
I assure you it is not a fraud. It is something I have seen with my eyes. Yes, there could be Nigerian scam frauds out there but it is not true of this.
Kenneth is not from Nigeria. Do not listen to any such thing now you have almost finished. Take it as a risk, but let me assure you once again you will not lose anything. Just close your eyes and do it.
I am seeing the devil working against the whole thing, just when you have almost gotten it.
I wait for your urgent reply. Emmanuel.
# 64 08/28/02
It is clear to me that you and Kenneth planned to get me fired, but I promise you that I may lose a job but you people will never succeed in life.
I thought I was dealing with honest people. No wonder you started talking about frauds and scams. Just who is defrauding who?
I did not know Kenneth before learning of his consignment and I don't know when you started dealing with him but now you people have made me commit my companies money into your business, and it now seems it is a scam.
I promise you that before I leave my job I will make sure you and Kenneth lose the consignment. It's a promise, not a threat. If I see Kenneth around our office I will let him know as well.
Thank you and bye. Emmanuel.
# 65 08/28/02
Mike, you are mistaken thinking this is a threat. There is no way my company can grant me any extension. I did not borrow any money from them. I simply used the money paid to me to pay to the company, for your sake.
I should send the money back without them knowing. Please, I have told you there is nothing like a scam or anything. I am even confused by what you are saying.
Try and let us shame the devil. If you pay back my company's money and my brother gives me the money to pay the Holland people, then, by next week, if you did not get the consignment you can take any action you like.
I assure you we have now reached the point of achieving something and you want to allow the devil to snatch it away .
But, if after my honest explanation, you abandon me at this point in time, I promise as I am losing my job you will lose all you have spent, Kenneth will be handed over to the authorities, and Interpol will question you for taking part in getting money that does not belong to you.
Let me tell you I have all your information here, and also let me tell you that I know my rights. You can go ahead and report me if you like but I know I did not defraud you. Rather it is you and Kenneth who are involved in taking money that belongs to the IVOIREN GOVERNMENT.
Nobody can intimidate me here for anything. If you doubt my intentions, you are wrong. Be reasonable so that we can conclude this transaction and everybody can go his own way,
Reply me urgently. Dr. Emmanuel.
The above victim later found this letter posted on indymedia.org on March 29, 2002 using the same name but with a different scenario. The phone number is identical to the one given to contact his "brother" Kenneth Chile.

After discussing my view and your profile with my colleagues, they were very much satisfied and we decided to contact you immediately for this mutual business relationship...
