This is an advance fee scam - not many of those in that format turn out to be genuine. The 'victim' (you) will be asked to pay a fee for the release of $250,000.00. After paying the fee, you will receive NOTHING.

The sender of the money is innocent (the victim). The scammer at no point sends any money. A barrister will come in, to confuse you with legal jargon in order to make it more believable. They are likely to be the same people (original sender & barrister).

There are a TON of scams going around using the name of the Africa Development Private Bank.

Three things that scream "I'm A SCAM"

1) You don't have that money in there - you never had business dealings with them before. Why would they send you money out of the blue like that?

2) The english, while good, isn't what you'd expect a professional to write.

3) The e-mail comes from live.com, which is a FREE e-mail. Businesses DON"T use free e-mail services.

Stop communications with them - they have personal details (at least your name and e-mail addy).

All they want are fees - legal fees, transfer fees, etc.
They will want the money sent via western union or money gram (Not usual bank methods).

Once the money is sent it is untraceable and unrecoverable. You WILL NOT get the fees back and there IS NO MONEY.

Thank you, you have acknowledged my suspicions.
Guess this means that the sender of the money is in the scam too.
What would be the best way of scamming back you think?

The basis of the scam is easy to spell out clearly and in a way that is easy to understand. He doesn't tell you in one mail, or you would be more likely to see it's a scam too. This is how it will work out.

He will not tell you about the money you have to pay until he knows you are fooled by his scam. Of course he will never send you any money and he has stolen the money you sent him.

Who are you referring to as the sender of the money?

Use that term lightly, as we don't scam them in the sense that they try to scam us ( extract cash). Our main aim is to waste scammers time, more time spent on e-mailing you is less time spent on real victims. As you advance through the basic techniques, perhaps with the help of a MENTOR, you will be able to waste time & finance moe effectively (i.e a safari, trophy pictures e.t.c)

Start off small, as I said above, time wasted on you is less time spent on real victims.

OK, since I am not a native english speaking person scamming to me means you cheat another, no matter what you do.
But I do understand that if you do it for money you are no better than any of the scammers themselves.
My female friend, who almost got scammed by someone saying he loved her, have novw recovered and fully understand that she was that close to get scammed.
She got a mail whith a claim of $2.500 for a certification to release the money and must be paid by Western Union, of course.
