Nigerian Advance Fee Fraud Claiming to Originate from Other Countries


Jennifer Mitchell sent this example along 01/01/02

Hello Company Owner,

My name is Budi Widjaja, and my home address is PONDOK JATI CR-1, SIDOARJO-61251, EAST JAVA, INDONESIA. I am writing to you to help me on both humanitarian and mutually benefiting interest grounds.

I am relying on your help; in return, I will compensate you most generously. My story is not unique or new, but I believe this approach will bring a solution to my family ordeal. You are the 5th person that I am contacting and I hope you will be the last!

Please forgive me for invading your privacy; I obtained your address information from Internet Search. I specifically chose free, open societies, which we can only dream of.

Because I believe you are a busy person, please let me briefly outline my agenda, and then, I will proceed to give you details.

I am an orthodox Christian and a minority ethnic Chinese of Indonesia, and though we as a people have suffered Official and private persecution for years, our suffering and marginalization have recently assumed alarming proportions.

We as a people have suffered religious persecution for years, but recently the economic downturn of Indonesia has been blamed on us and we have become the scapegoats...Please check the following website

http://www.geocities.com/Tokyo/Palace/2313/ ( Atrocities in Indonesia); You will find countless articles on the subject, and it is sobering to say the least...

In the light of the foregoing, I took precautionary steps years ago and established a numbered Account in Switzerland -

BANCA PRIVATA
EDMOND DE ROTHSHILD LUGANO S.A.
Via Ginevra 2 - CP 2831
6901 LUGANO
Phone: (41 91) 913 45 00
Funds on current deposit - US$25,375,406.98

As it turns out, it was my wisest and best decision yet, and the future of my family is now centered on this money. How?

Since the Riots broke out, the ethnic Chinese, particularly the rich and middle class have been restricted from emigrating to other Countries with their wealth.

The Secret Police trail and watch your every move; even as I write to you, my telephone is bugged and I and my family are virtually on house arrest.

A Visa application by the unwary is an invitation for trouble and the Secret police will instantly be at your door and your bank Account frozen...These are the sordid details that our dear President Megawati Sukarnoputri does not want the world to know about!

On a practical side, I have tried both openly and also clandestinely to obtain visas for myself and my family at the American Embassy, Address: Jl. Merdeka Selatan 4-5, Jakarta 10110, Indonesia Phone (62-21) 3435-9000; Fax: (62-21) 385-7189, and my efforts proved fruitless.

Even an application on humanitarian grounds to the American Ambassador, Ralph L. "Skip" Boyce, was turned down for "want of merit", an official language meaning that a grant of visa will be against the interests of the State of Indonesia!

In summary therefore, I am planning to emigrate to America or Canada or any other Western Country, and I need your help. I cannot do it from Indonesia. As a wealthy man, I have some means and help, but because of the prying eyes of the Secret Police, I am greatly handicapped.

I have made a lot of research on the internet and I have a plan that will work, with your cooperation...I will require your help to retain an immigration Attorney who will prepare the basic paperwork for me; I will thereafter arrange with a "contact" in the Secret Police to "procure" visas for myself and my family from Malaysia.

This contact will, at the appropriate time arrange passage for me and my family to Switzerland. Once in Switzerland, I will be free to access my money ( impossible at the moment because the nature of my Secret numbered account dictates that I must appear in person at the Bank in order to make withdrawals...(It was set up specifically this way to avoid any one or the Secret police forcing me under coercion to wire the funds back to Indonesia or anywhere; it is my greatest security).

If you are willing to help me, You will please do 2 things for me ;

(1) You will retain an Immigration Lawyer to advise me (though, from my researches, my emigration to America/Canada is assured because of my SUBSTANTIAL SWISS HOLDINGS); ...I am not afraid of betrayal because presently I and my family are staying at a "SAFEHOUSE" secret location under an assumed name, and the secret Police can not trace me from the above address of course...

(2) You will please arrange air charter transportation for me and my family from Jakarta to Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) /Lugano (Switzerland)...details will follow later. If you are willing to help me, please reply ONLY by email, and we will establish our game plan.

Please bear in mind that you have not, and you will not be committing a crime both under International Law and even Indonesian Law...You are simply rendering humanitarian help...for a small financial consideration.

Mr. Wong Hang, my Secret Police contact person, who is processing our visas from Malaysia explained to me that he will arrange Tourist Visiting visas for me and my family.

The visas will according to him will be good for about 1 month. Entry into USA/Canada, or any other "Western" Country is therefore NOT the problem per se. My problem is that I and my family wish to stay PERMANENTLY in either USA or Canada or any other Western Country.

You have to appreciate the hard fact that I and my family are fugitives even in my own country; I therefore desire to quickly and expeditiously legitimise our permanent Stay abroad.

I do not wish to take chances because of the risk of REPATRIATION BACK TO INDONESIA! This is why it is vital that an Attorney be retained to immediately take up our case and prepare for our arrival.

As I said earlier, there is no need to bother about our visas; these will be taken care of by Mr. Wong Hang. The Attorney's job is to process the paperwork to guarantee our permanent stay in USA/Canada or any other Western Country.

As soon as our visas are obtained by Mr. Wong Hang, I will arrange to send all Passport copies/visas to you so that you can give them to the Attorney. Once we arrive, he can then start his work.

Unfortunately, I can not pay any charges upfront because I have no access to my funds in Switzerland. I therefore appeal to you to put the Attorney on notice that he will be paid his charges/fees as soon as we arrive Switzerland ( to access my funds) and from there to your Country.

This I think is reasonable since the actual work of the Attorney will commence IMMEDIATELY UPON OUR ARRIVAL YOUR END. I know this will be a great inconvenience because Attorneys everywhere always demand UPFRONT RETAINERSHIP FEES AND CHARGES!

I know that your assistance per the above is very valuable . I wish therefore to make absolutely sure that nothing goes wrong. Secondly, I really do need your assistance to set up a corporation plus a corporate Bank Account.

Please note that I will NOT be sending you funds for preliminary expenses for the reasons which I mentioned above.

Thank you so much, and May God bless you!

Regards,

Budi

PS: The Account in Switzerland was set up under "SPECIAL CIRCUMSTANCES", as you are now aware; I did not want to take the chance of being forced to wire back my funds to Indonesia!

It happened to some of my compatriots who were careless, and the Government Agents forced them to send back their money under force/blackmail.

In my own case my funds can not be wired anywhere EXCEPT I show up in Person; in the event of my demise, there are Specific instructions for my next of kin to follow...

same from Louisa Ejercitor Estrada 09/06/02


Dearest One,

I am Dr Luisa Pimentel Estrada, the wife of Joseph Ejercito Estrada, former president of Philippines. I have children with my husband Jose, Jacqueline and Jude. Two sons and a daughter.

This mail may be coming to you as a surprise or an article but it is very real. I gave the mail to my daughter Jude to send the mail to any contacts she sees and may be a God fearing person will listen to our plight.

I will want you as the receiver to read through it and think very well if you can help or render us any assistance.

My husband Joseph Ejercito Estrada was elected as the 13th President of the Philippines in May 1998 by the people of Philippines due to his popularity in the film industry made him to win the largest popularity in the history of election in Philippines.

He has attain the position of Senate in 1987,then vice-president in May 1992 and later become the president 1998.My husband became mayor of his hometown, San Juan in 1969 but it was 1972 that he had a string of public successes.

My husband was named one of the ten Outstanding Young Men in Public Administration. He was also named Most Outstanding Mayor and Foremost Nationalist and Most Outstanding Metro Manila Mayor.

My husband is recently accused of illegal acquire some four Billion Peso ($80M) during his 31 months in office as President backed up by an uprising of mass Demonstrators and Senate Traitors. They also said that he has skimmed off tobacco excise Taxes benefiting from government business deals.

Most of them benefited from my husband's generosity when he was in office. But they just turned around to be the ones to impeach him. I have tried every possible means to get him out of Detention without success.

The Despotic forces in power appear bent in deriding him, rubbishing his achievements while freezing all his known Bank accounts. He has been accused of economic plunder carrying the maximum penalty of death.

To the worst of it all, all other wives of my husband especially Guia Gomez and some of his children born outside wedlock are testifying against us. In conjunction with the PCGG funded by the recent President Arroyo Macapagal Gloria.

These are some of the allegations file before my husband in the impeachment trial;

1. Gov. Luis Singson, a longtime friend of my husband, said he provided the my husband with more than $8 million in payoffs from illegal gambling and $2.7 million from tobacco taxes.

2. Witnesses testify one of an account in the Philippines third largest bank held millions of dollars in bribes collected by my husband. Equitable PCI Bank President George Go resigns. The banks senior vice president, Clarissa Ocampo, said she saw my husband sign a false name to documents withdrawing $10 million from a secret personal account.

3. On Dec 31 Five synchronized bomb attacks kill 22 people and injure more than 120 in Manila, days before the trial is to return from holiday recess. Police accuse Muslim rebels but many fear the bombs may be linked to the trial.

4. That my husband received about $8.5 million in pay-offs from illegal gambling operators.

5. That my husband participated in a real estate business controlled by me and my son Jose despite a prohibition on outside business interests while in office.

My husband is suffering from bronchitis and emphysema right now and he detained at the Veterans Memorial Medical Center in Quezon City in hospital prison outside Manila where the life of my husband is in danger. I will let you know that it is political motivated by Gloria Arroyo.

Meanwhile, the government has said that it may drop rebellion charges against my husband allies Senator Juan Ponce Enrile and the former ambassador to the United State Ernesto Maceda because they were in the side of my husband, both men were later jailed by the government of Gloria Arroyo that they instigated a march on the presidential palace by 50,000 supporters of my husband. These are all political. All these are done to have my husband death.

Presently life has not been easy for my children and I. My traveling documents have been seized by the government and they restricted me and my children to have access to my husband.

Haven seen the way things are going with us. He decided to let me know that he deposited some money with security companies in Bangkok, Thailand and Amsterdam, Netherlands.

He said that he deposited the sum of twenty Million dollars $20,000,000 in my name (Pimentel Luisa Estrada) in Amsterdam. Now I want to start a new life with the money. I want to invest the money outside Philippines.

What I am begging you is to assist me in receiving the money on my behalf. You will have to represent me in receiving the money with the security company.

I have discussed with the security company here in Metropolitan Manila about this arrangement, they assured me that the money will be release to my representative. In that regards, I have gone to collect the documents needed from Gomez Carlos who my husband kept the documents with.

If you are willing to assist me in receiving the money. You will send me your full names, contact Fax and Telephone numbers to enable me forward your information to the security company.

Once you get back to me, we will discuss the percentage you will liken to take for your kind assistance.

I will be communicating with you by email because my telephone lines are not safe for the transaction because of the heighten security around me and my family.

You can respond to my sons Jose or Jacqueline email addresses jacqestrada2003\\netscape.net and joestrada70\\netscape.net because I can not be reaching you all the time.

I would want us to be in partnership in any good business you may suggest in your country.

Please handle this transaction with maturity and sincerity.

Best regards

Giving Enron a Bad Name

This may reach you as a surprise. I am sending you this mail due to my present urgent position.

I am Mr. James Smith, the officer in charge of special projects to Mr. John Mendelson who recently resigned as a member of the board of directors of Enron energy corporation, a multibillion dollar energy corporation in the United States of America.

My Job description amongst others is Auditing, Verification and Recommending for payment, funds for our overseas operations and projects for work done by our Europe and far east countries clients.

Just before Enron filed for bankrupcy, we were in the process of paying out huge funds to some of our foreign clients, this was however suspended after the federal agents stepped in following the discovery that our Accounting firm Arthur Anderson was carrying out some accounting irregularities.

Incidentally, before the company was sealed, I succeeded in securing some vital classified documents in collaboration with my boss who ordered that the documents be destroyed.

These documents shows how funds meant for overseas payment are lodged abroad. These funds are safely in offshore online bank accounts.

Presently I am in the island of Haiti and need a reliable friend that can assist in standing in as a client of Enron, of which payment for work done is long overdue.

If you agree to work with me in this venture, I will provide all information and details in respect of the funds deposited, that will empower and enable you collect the funds on my behalf.

I would provide you with more details as soon as you acknowledge receipt of this mail.

Please note that this venture is completely safe as we shredded all documents concerning the whereabouts of our offshore accounts before the company folded up and the funds can not be traced anywhere in the world.

I expect your prompt response. And please respond only to this my confidential mail address james_amu22\\yahoo.com only not jamessmith\\hknetmail.com

SEUNG CHANG
REPUBLIC OF KOREA.
SOUTH KOREA.

Dear Friend,

My name is SEUNG CHANG.From 1980-1988 I was a special aide to Mr. CHUN DOO-HWAN, the former President of South Korea who seized power in a military coup in 1980 and ruled from 1980 to 1988.

My boss was pushed out of office and charged with treason, corruption and embezzlement of over 21billion won.

He was wrongly sentenced to death but fortunately AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL stepped in and commuted the sentence to life imprisonment.

We thank God that he has finally been released, though still under house arrest in the sense of conditions of the freedom.

I have been under house arrest at the government house all these years while he was in prison. I was also pardoned on the day of his release.

During his regime as president of South Korea, we realized some reasonable amount of money from various deals that we successfully executed.

I have plans to invest this money for my children's future on real estate and industrial production.

Before he was overthrown, I secretly siphoned the sum of $28,000,000 million USD (Twenty-eight Million United States Dollars) out of Seoul and deposited the money with a security firm that transports valuable goods and consignments through diplomatic means in Europe.

I am contacting you because I want you to deal with the security company and claim the money on my behalf since I have declared that the consignment belong to my foreign business partner.

You shall also be required to assist me in investment in your country. I hope to trust you as a God fearing person who will not sit on this money when you claim it, rather assist me properly, I expect you to declare what percentage of the total money you will take for your assistance.

When I receive your positive response I will let you know the contacts of the security company. What I need is for you to indicate your interest that you will assist me by receiving the money on my behalf in Europe.

For this, you shall be considered to be the beneficiary of the money. The project in brief, is that the funds with which we intend to carry out our proposed investments in your country, is presently in the custody of a security firm in Europe.

Note that it will require you to visit Europe to do the necessary clearance of the consignment before it release and final banking for you and I.

I cannot do this myself because I do not want the government of my Country to know about the money because they will believe I got the money from the government.

Besides I am under government surveilance. My movement is being monitored, I have to be in Korea for sometime.

Once you confirm the receipt of the money ,I will come over with my Children to your Country or any Country in Europe to start a new life with my Family.

As soon as payment is effected, and the amount mentioned above is successfully transferred into the bank account that will be opened for you, we will use our own share in acquiring some estates abroad.

For this too you shall also be our overseas manager if you display the ability to do so.

Please send me your telephone and fax number.

Your quick response will be highly appreciated. Thank you in anticipation of your cooperation.

Yours faithfully,

Mr Seung Chang.

One Wankin' Scammer

MR. QIN WANG
HANG SENG BANK LTD.
DES VOEUX RD.BRANCH
CENTRAL HONG KONG
HONG KONG.

I am Mr. Wang Qin, credit officer of Hang Seng Bank Ltd. I have an urgent and very confidential business proposition for you.

On August 6, 1999, a British Oil consultant/contractor with the Chinese Solid Minerals Corporation, Mr. Pavel Kepak made a numbered time (Fixed) Deposit for twelve calendar months, valued at US$28,000,000.00 (Twenty-eight Million Dollars only) in my branch. Upon maturity,I sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but got no reply.

After a month, we sent a reminder and finally we discovered from his contract employers, the Hong Kong Solid Minerals Corporation that Mr. Pavel Kepak died from an automobile accident.

On further investigation, I found out that he died without making a WILL, and all attempts to trace his next of kin was fruitless.

I therefore made further investigation and discovered that Mr. Pavel Kepak did not declare any kin or relations in all his official documents, including his Bank Deposit paperwork in my Bank.

This sum of US$28,000,000.00 is still sitting in my Bank and the interest is being rolled over with the principal sum at the end of each year.

No one will ever come forward to claim it.

According to Laws of Hong Kong, at the expiration of 5 (five) years, the money will revert to the ownership of the Hong Kong Government if nobody applies to claim the fund.

Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand in as the next of kin to Mr. Pavel Kepak so that the fruits of this old man's labor will not get into the hands of some corrupt government officials.

This is simple, I will like you to provide immediately your full names and address so that the attorney will prepare the necessary documents and affidavits that will put you in place as the next of kin.

The money will be paid into your account for us to share in the ratio of 65% for me and 30% for you and 5% for Expenses Incurred in the course of the transaction.

There is no risk at all as all the paperwork for this transaction will be done by the attorney and with my position as the credit officer guarantees the successful execution of this transaction.

If you are interested, please reply immediately to my email box, wang247\\levele.com Upon your response, I shall then provide you with more details and relevant documents that will help you understand the transaction.

You should observe utmost confidentiality, and rest assured that this transaction would be most profitable for both of us because I shall require your assistance to invest my share in your country.

Awaiting your urgent reply.

Thanks and regards.

Mr. Qin Wang. 02/04
