Scam money

It’s been a while since I post an entry on scam awareness. Basically, what I’m trying to do is to highlight some of the popular scam which is going on. It’s sad but even with the on-going education of scam awareness, people still fall for it. Hopefully my little contribution here will tip the scale a bit.

I received this email recently. To save some space, I’m attaching the whole email at the comment section.

Generally, The person’s name is Larry and he is a director of a bank in Ghana. One of his client apparently died leaving $4.5 million with no heir to claim them.

Now, he’s asking whether I can present as the next kin to collect the money. If I agree I will be awarded with 30% of the wholel amount. That’s very gracious don’t you think?

/end email

Why it is confirmed a scam? (Please refer to the email in the comment section)

  • There’s no explanation as to where he got my email. Even so, if you are about to do an illegal transaction involving millions of dollars, will you believe a complete stranger?
  • There is one flaw. The client was said to die on the 21st of April 2001. That’s 7 years difference.
  • The usage of a yahoo email is very suspicious looking.
  • I’ve received about 2 or 3 emails very similar to this. A clear sign

How it scams?
It starts very convincingly that you bear no risk at all. But in time, I can guarantee you that the scammer will start asking you to deposit some money with the reason that his account is being monitored.

The amount may not be that much. Maybe a few hundred dollars. And you will be tempted since comparing that amount to the millions you will be receiving, that is nothing.

The scammer will then ask for more money to be used for other administration fee. This time it will be in thousands of dollars. He will even guarantee you your money back anytime you want.

Of course your money is already lost.

– I wonder –
Have you ever received emails alike?

Disclaimer – I am not by any chance associating Ghana with scam. It just so happen that the email I received stated the name.

Since then the Bank had made several enquiries to your embassy here to locate any of our clients extended relatives,this has also proved unsuccessful.
    This our client, has an account with this Branch of our Bank, totalling US$6.5million, which she inherited from her late husband who was an industrialist before he died.And, since that year after her death, the bank has not had anyone that Comes for the claim of this fund as either her relation or as a friend.A situation I have monitored closely with my position here as the Manager of this branch of our Bank and l have finally removed her file to my private vault.

    I am Barrister Osueke Nwaji, personal attorney to Mr.C.Sevilla, who used to work as a contractor in Republic of Togo. in my country, On 27th December 2007, my client and his wife and the only son were involved in a ghastly motor accident that claim their lives since then I have made several enquiries to locate any of my client’s extended relatives but this proved unsuccessful.

    After these several unsuccessful attempts,I decided to search through with his last name which motivated me to contact you as some body bearing the same last name.

    Presently, the bank where the deceased (my client) made the deposit valued at $4.6 Million Dollars issued me a notice to provide the next-of-kin to my client to receive its benefit or have the account confiscated, or declared unserviceable by the bank.

    To this effect, I now seek your consent to present you to the bank as the next of kin of the deceased (my late client) So that you and I can share the $4.6 Million; 40% to me and 40% to you, while 20% should be given to any Orphanage Home.

    I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law.

    Kindly send the below informations to me to enable us proceed.

    Please contact me for more details if you are really interested.

    Yours sincerely,

    My Dear Good Friend Jabbar, I am Mr. Totte Moga, the branch manager of one of the banks here in lome, Lome Branch, and Republic of Togo.We had a foreign client (Mr. Muhammad Jabbar) who bears the same family name with you and both of you are from the same country, and on the 26th of December, 2003, our client, his wife and their son were involved in a Benin Republic Airways flight air-crash with registration number (141-UTA) which departed from a village called Adjarra near Porto Novou, Republic of Benin to destination Beirut and our client and all his family died as a result of the mishap on 26th of December, 2003.He was the owner and the Executive Director of STT PETROCHEMICAL SERVICING COMPANY LTD LOME-TOGO. This our foreign client has an account with this Branch of our Bank totaling US $11Million (Eleven Million United States Dollars). Since after his untimely death, no one has come forward for the claim of this fund as either his relative or as a next of kin. This is a situation I have monitored closely with my position here as the Manager of this branch of our Bank and l have finally removed his file to my private vault.I decided to search through the Chamber of Commerce with his name and that is where I got your contact. Now this is what l actually want you to do; Since you bear the same family name with the late depositor and both of you bear the same nationality (the same country), i have reasoned very professionally and l feel that it will be legally proper to present you as his next of kin to our bank so as to claim this fund before it is confiscated and transferred into our bank’s treasury as an abandoned fund and by so doing, other people may as well claim it directly without going to this length.Therefore, on receipt of your positive response, Percentage terms will be discussed with you before we can proceed.Best Regards,Mr. Totte Moga.Direct line +22899034002

    Today at 7:40 PM

    Dear Good Friend Danyar Jabar,
    Best greetings of the day! I hope everything is in perfect shape with you. I have received your mail and the content was well noted. In regards to your message to me, I want you to understand that my contacting you is not by mistake rather the issue is that since after the untimely death of the late depositor of the fund, no one had come forward to our bank to claim the fund as the fund’s beneficiary because the late depositor of the fund died without naming the beneficiary of his fund and since then our Bank had made several inquiries through your embassy here to locate any of our client’s extended relatives and all our efforts proved unsuccessful.

    My dear, i want you to bear this in mind that as soon as the deposited fund completes it’s deposit duration with our bank by the end of next month, our bank will confiscate the fund and move it into their treasury as an abandoned fund and by so doing, the board of directors of our bank will share this fund secretly between themselves without any body’s notice.

    Would you allow the fruit of labour of your fellow country man to just go in vain because of his untimely death??????

    You should understand that this is deal between you and i only and no other person should know about it. I want you to understand that you stand 100% chance of claiming the fund as the fund’s beneficiary due to the fact that you bear the same family name with the late depositor of the fund and both of you are from the same country. I hope you still remember that i am the the branch manager of this bank where this fund is deposited and i want you to understand that i have every information about this deposited fund. I will be here to guide and direct you properly throughout the fund claim process until the fund is transferred to you by our bank.

    As I have implied earlier, you need therefore to take all precautions and spare no expense to keep this matter entirely confidential. We will share the proceeds 60/40. You will take 40% of the total fund and i will take 60% of the total fund as soon as the fund is transferred to you in your country. Having said thus, you should know that trust is the engine that drives this kind of business and in the absence of it, things might go awry afterwards. I also expect that you have accepted the sharing formula as it must not pose any problem to us after the deal.

    I believe you will both understand and appreciate that my requests for the above information certainly seem fair given the control and role that you have as the receiver of the funds. I would advise you to come down to my dear country, Republic of Togo, so that i will direct you on how you will come to our bank and arrange for the fund claim once and for all but if coming down to my dear country will be a difficult task to you now due to your tight schedule,i would advise you to send to me the below listed information of yours to enable me draft a fund claim application letter that will be submitted to the bank to enable them proceed with the fund claim process.The required information includes,

    trust and dependency for accurate informatio

    Your Full Names…………………..
    Your Address……………………….
    Your Age……………………………………..
    Your Occupation………………………………..
    Your Direct Phone line……………………………………….

    The mutual n is a two way street and the engine that drives this kind business. The basis for the establishment of mutual trust is not exhaustive though. Therefore don’t hesitate to send to me any other information you deem fit as a further proof of your loyalty. Happy to see a good business relationship with you hoping that this business would afford us to know ourselves and bring us together as family friends in time to come.

    Regards,
    Mr. Totte Moga.

    Beware of the following names Michael Klousseh director ecobank Togo rev.father EUGENIO PETROGALLI doctor Kumar pavej and victor onwe all of which I believe to be the same person claiming to be all of these people. The above names are all real including their job descriptions emails phone numbers and addresses but if you look them up on the internet and contact them they have no idea of what your talking about and all that I spoke to told me to ask these people or person for a bank account number to deposit money into if a bank account is given call the police and they can trace that number to an account holder and then they can be caught. Be clever be wise and good luck. Let’s catch these assholes

    so, i got this….
    My Dear Friend Tedy Brasoveanu.

    I thank you very much for your response to my message, Brasoveanu I do
    not contact you by mistake, rather l have contacted you based on the
    fact that you are bearing the same family name with our late client
    and I don’t really know exactly if you are related to this our
    late client or not, But the name of our late client is (late Mrs.
    Stella Brasoveanu), I have contacted you to assist me because you are
    bearing the same family name with our late client Brasoveanu.

    I have all the information of this late client and the deposit,
    Considering my position in our bank, I can not start any thing that I
    can not be able to finish, Before I contacted you.

    I only know them as a foreigner that settled in our country here for a
    long time and I do not know much about their family history, I do not
    think that this our late client has a family member that knows about
    the deposit and their whereabouts because they are all buried here in
    our country after their death,

    Our bank board of Directors are planning to share this 6.5 million
    dollars which she inherited from her late husband in our bank if no
    one applies for the claim of her fund from now till the end of of this
    Year 2015. Why because since we had about her death, No one has come
    forward for this claim as the next of kin to the fund which she
    inherited from her late husband in our bank.

    The law of our bank stipulates that any inherited fund that is not
    claimed after 11 years will be confiscated, last year ending will be
    the last year and hence no one applies for it from now till the end of
    this Year 2015 the board of directors will share it among themselves,
    I am the manager in the branch of our bank where this huge amount of
    money is deposited and I have contacted you so that we can team up as
    partners and claim out the fund for our benefit. So are you willing to
    assist me in claiming out this fund from our bank?

    Since the death of this our late client no one has come to apply for
    her fund in our bank and I have contacted you now because our bank
    board of directors has concluded that if no one applies for the fund
    claim till the end of this year banking report that they will share
    the fund among themselves, I have contacted you since you are bearing
    the same name with her so that I can present you as her next of kin in
    our bank so that you will file in an application letter of claim as
    the next of kin to the Brasoveanu’s family who contacted our bank from
    your country,

    I will be here in our bank to give you every support as the manager in
    the branch of our bank where this fund is deposited so that the fund
    will be processed and approved to you as the next of kin to the
    Brasoveanu’s family and then you will instruct our bank to transfer it
    to any account of your choice after which I will arrange and fly down
    to your country for us to share the money as I stated in my first
    message to you,here is the website of our bank http://www.biat.tg everything
    you need to know about our bank are there.

    All I need from you is your co-operation so that we can use this
    opportunity and re-arrange our both families, lf you are ready to
    work with me in claiming out this fund from our bank kindly send along
    the following information below to me to enable me draft on your
    behalf application letter of claim and send it back to you for you to
    use it and contact our bank from your country for the claiming of the
    $6.5m.

    Your Full Names,………..
    Residential Address, ………
    Private Email Address………
    Telephone Number,….
    Age,…….

    not contact you by mistake, rather l have contacted you based on the
    fact that you are bearing the same family name with our late client
    and I don’t really know exactly if you are related to this our
    late client or not, But the name of our late client is (late Mrs.
    Stella Tricolici), I have contacted you to assist me because you are
    bearing the same family name with our late client Tricolici.

    I have all the information of this late client and the deposit,
    Considering my position in our bank, I can not start any thing that I
    can not be able to finish, Before I contacted you.

    I only know them as a foreigner that settled in our country here for a
    long time and I do not know much about their family history, I do not
    think that this our late client has a family member that knows about
    the deposit and their whereabouts because they are all buried here in
    our country after their death,

    Our bank board of Directors are planning to share this 6.5 million
    dollars which she inherited from her late husband in our bank if no
    one applies for the claim of her fund from now till the end of of this
    Year 2016. Why because since we had about her death, No one has come
    forward for this claim as the next of kin to the fund which she
    inherited from her late husband in our bank.

    The law of our bank stipulates that any inherited fund that is not
    claimed after 12 years will be confiscated, last year ending will be
    the last year and hence no one applies for it from now till the end of
    this Year 2016 the board of directors will share it among themselves,
    I am the manager in the branch of our bank where this huge amount of
    money is deposited and I have contacted you so that we can team up as
    partners and claim out the fund for our benefit. So are you willing to
    assist me in claiming out this fund from our bank?

    Since the death of this our late client no one has come to apply for
    her fund in our bank and I have contacted you now because our bank
    board of directors has concluded that if no one applies for the fund
    claim till the end of this year banking report that they will share
    the fund among themselves, I have contacted you since you are bearing
    the same name with her so that I can present you as her next of kin in
    our bank so that you will file in an application letter of claim as
    the next of kin to the Tricolici’s family who contacted our bank from
    your
    country,

    I will be here in our bank to give you every support as the manager in
    the branch of our bank where this fund is deposited so that the fund
    will be processed and approved to you as the next of kin to the
    Tricolici’s family and then you will instruct our bank to transfer it
    to any
    account of your choice after which I will arrange and fly down to your
    country for us to share the money as I stated in my first message to
    you,here is the website of our bank http://www.biat.tg everything you need to
    know about our bank are there.

    All I need from you is your co-operation so that we can use this
    opportunity and re-arrange our both families, lf you are ready to
    work with me in claiming out this fund from our bank kindly send along
    the following information below to me to enable me draft on your
    behalf application letter of claim and send it back to you for you to

    Well, then…

    If you who have arrived to copy these messages between me and the scammer on some translator, realize that it really has something odd, and in addition to the most curious this nursery rhyme of fraudsters came in a fortuitous way, being that I do not know how they discovered my email, never had relative Engelheiro or entrepreneur who worked in some refinery there and that mainly were in Lome in Togo And that of nothing a alleged individual who passes by counsel wishes to pass an inherited inheritance, and I did research variables but I did not find that they would lead to believing in this “Williams martyrs” if that is his real name and that there is also no oil development company in that region, and for all this, soon it starts very convincingly that you have no risk at the beginning But however, I can assure you that the scammer will start asking you to deposit some money with the reason your account is being monitored by the state Government, why in fact has the exchange rate, and I can say that this is more than a coup is practised by felony fraud, extortion, racketeering, i.e. a fairly sophisticated coup aimed at alleged companies working with foreign suppliers and companies that regularly carry out payments Electronic transfer which seeks to say:
    After all these various unsuccessful attempts, I decided to contact you for the fact that you have even surname with the deceased who died by natural causes of car accident or airplane along with Wife and daughter and blah blah blah. . and scam that is fraudster is conducted by committing legitimate business email accounts through social engineering or computer intrusion techniques to perform unauthorized transfers of funds… so be careful not to be next, they send all over the continent… But I hope at least the intelligence service can investigate it better.
