Re: Miss Kate Mark
Abidjan , Cote d'Ivoire
My name is Miss Kate Mark. I am a girl of 17 years from the Ivory Coast . I am the only child of my parents and as I write to you now, none of them are alive.
I lost my mother when I was four years old and my father died last year as a result of protracted illness due to food poisoning.
After the death of my father, two of my uncles conspired against me and sold my father's properties to a Japanese businessman because I am a girl.
I have some money that my late father left in the bank and my name is used as the next of kin. All the documents of this money are with my late father’s lawyer for the sake of safe keeping.
I have tried to withdraw the money so that I can start a better life and take care of myself, but the bank director said that I will need someone who is going to be my guardian to help me with the investment of the money. I asked the director why and he said that this is as a result of the agreement the bank had with my late father.
He advised me to provide a trustee who will help me and invest the money and this is the reason why I am contacting you.
I need your help in the following ways:
1. To help me and provide an account where this money will be transfered to.
2. To help me and make an arrangement of where I will continue with my education.
3. To help me to come over to your country as soon as the money is transfered into your account.
The amount of money that is in the bank is Six million three hundred thousand United States dollars ($6,300,000.00) and this money was meant for the building of my father’s new estate before his death.
You will help me to place the money in a more profitable business investment in your Country.
You will also help by getting a nice University in your country so that I can complete my studies.
I am promising to compensate you with 20% of the total money for your services and the balance shall be my capital in your establishment.
Please, I want you to keep this to your self. And I do not want you to disclose it to anyone until I come over to your country because I am afraid of my uncles and the people around me.
Miss Kate Mark

Welcome to Eater! Pull up a chair and have some fun reading, and joining in.
That's a bog-standard scam format. You'll find a zillion similar to it in the "Surplus 419 Scam Letters" forum near the bottom of the main forum page. It's actually even a relatively archaic format; a lot of lads have abandoned these "next of kin" scams because they're getting so well-known. The craftier scammers are mining new territory.
Why not try your hand at baiting this loser? There's plenty of fun to be had.

Cheers for the welcome, nar I dont have much time on my hands though just put it out there in case anyone was interested. And besides, checking the email address shows that the email came from France lol. So prob not gonna get too much there I think...
I've been baiting a similar one; the boy in his late teens has a younger sister, my characters were going to adopt them and enroll her in our home school (we live on a boat most of the time, so there's no way we could send our boy to school on land), and there are the usual two trunk boxes and a barrister is going to change the ownership as soon as he actually gets the money.
It doesn't actually take much time to bait one lad. If you get busy, just make up an excuse related to your character's work or whatever — in our case, we went on an ichthyological research trip, or we were asked to catch a ton of fish.
