I've been baiting for a few years but only recently found this forum. This was one of my first attempts that I have the e-mails for.

Here's the initial invitation:

Quote:

From: [email protected]

Dear Sir,
I am the Chairman Contract Review Committee of National Electric Power Authority (NEPA).
Although this proposal might come to you as a surprise since it is coming from someone you
do not know or ever seen before, but after due
deliberations with my colleagues, I decided to contact you.
We are soliciting for your humble and confidential assistance to take custody of Eighteen
Million United States Dollars.{US$18,000,000.00}.
This sum (US$18M) is an over invoice contract sum which is currently in an offshore
payment account of the Central Bank of Nigeria as an
unclaimed contract entitlement which can easily be withdrawn or drafted or pay to any
recommended beneficiary by my committee.
On this note, you will be presented as a contractor to NEPA who has executed a contract
to a tune of the above sum and has not been paid.
Proposed Sharing Partern (%):
1. 70% for me and my colleagues.
2. 20% for you as a partner/fronting for us.
3. 10% for expenses that may be incurred by both parties during the cause of this
transacton.
Our law prohibits a civil servant from operating a foreign account, hence we are contacting
you.
If this proposal satisfies you, do respond as soon as possible with the following information:
1. The name you wish to use as the beneficiary of the fund.
2. Your Bank Account.
3. Your Confidential Phone and Fax Numbers.
Further discussion will be centered on how the fund shall be transfer and full details on how
to accomplish this great opportunity of ours.
Thank you and God bless.

Best regards,

Godfrey Isesele


My first reply (I'm using a Russian sounding name so the English is poor to start. You'll notice how it quickly improves with time). I play the stupid person to start with to make sure he takes the bait.

Dear Godfrey,

I is so happy to be receiving your offer, as it is something I have been waiting for all my life.

I sorry for poor English, but I get my friend to read message to confirm all is under standable.

My private fax number is +44 xxxx xxxxxx but my phone is in open office so not secure.

I will set-up new bank account for you to deposit my share of the money, so it will take several days for me.

Could you please reply with your full name and address, contact numbers, date of birth and mother's maiden name, as I will need this information if you are to share the access to the account and withdrew your share of the money.

Igor


He takes the bait - game on!

OK he's happy to give me some personal details. Sounds like he needs to escape Nigeria once he gets the money, so make him an offer to help get him out:

Quote:

Dear Godfrey,

many thanks for your reply. It does indeed sound like an opportunity too good to miss, and I can only thank you again for contacting me with regards to this confidential transaction.

I am apologise for the delay in replying, but I have been investigating some possibilities for options.

Reading your e-mail, it seems that getting certain documentation signed and approved will cost several thousand dollars. I have a better solution. Through my contacts in the Russian Mafia, I have access to a network of expert forgers, who can produce any documentation, including UK and European passports. I am very confident that they can provide all documentation that would be required at zero cost, which would mean that we have more money available for everyone.

Also, through my contacts, I would be able to provide you and the members of your committee with false documentation, permitting you to freely enter the European Union of countries, including the United Kingdom and France, where you could live tax free and spend a life in luxury.

We will be able to get everyone out of Nigeria, including close family on the one aircraft, and for security, I would suggest that the aircraft flies directly to one of the small regional airports in the UK such as Scatsta (see http://www.brae.shetland.co.uk/shetland/braearea/sullom/sullom_map.html), where there is less security and customs staff, and you will be able to merge invisibly into the nearby community, as there is a very high immigrant population there. I would arrange all the accommodation in advance.

If you would be interested in this opportunity, I would need full details of everyone in your committee, including their dates or birth, place of birth, details of their parents and home address. I will also need two recent photographs of everyone in passport size. These photographs could be e-mailed initially, to get the basic documentation correct, but we will need genuine photographs for the final passports and entry/residence visas.

I look eagerly for your reply at your earliest convenience.

Igor


He's still keen and enforces the urgency of the situation but ignores my offer to get him and his family out of the country.

Dear Igor Krehtzen,
Thank you very much for the confidentiality and full
dedication you placed on this great opportunity of
ours.
The friendships is just beginning, we have a lot of
deals to do together in the future.
My country is an Oil Rich country, come MAY 2003, a
member of my committee shall be contesting for the
PRESIDENT of my country hence we are trying to
transfer some funds to your account to be use during
the election campaign.
We are only three person that are involve in this
transaction. Once the $18,000,000.00 is transfer into
your account we shall come to UK, open an account, and
keep our share in the accounts, that will not be a
problem.
The expenses regarding documentation to front you as a
Foreign Contractor that executed a contract with my
Parastata shall be taking care off by me and my
colleagues.
The only areas you are going to spend money is the
FUNDS RELEASE DOCUMENTS which the Federal Ministry Of
finance will send to you through DHL OR UNITED PARCEL
SERVICES (UPS) and they will ask you to pay for the
postage which is going to be a token. This funds
release documents shall be send to you to sign and
send back to the Federal Ministry Of Finance.
Once the documents are signed by you and send back to
the Federal Ministry Of Finance, the $18,000,000.00
shall be transfer to your account immediately.
We have started securing the documents in your name.
Do stay calm and call me on my Private Phone Number:
234-8033-257657.
By Wednesday nextweek the $18,000,000.00 will be in
your account.
I await your call.

Godfrey I


Time to remind him about the offer to get him out of Nigeria. Also offer to prepare forged documents for him and drop hints about mafia connections.

Quote:

Dear Godfrey,

did you not read the last message I sent about the documentation ?

I can arrange to produce all the documentation required through my contacts in Russia at no cost to any of us.

I am sure with your contacts, we can get samples of the necessary signatures, so that they can be copied onto the forged documents.

Also, regarding your passports and entry visas to the United Kingdom - I would greatly appreciate it if you could start gathering all the necessary documentation I shall need to get this done.

I have already secured private accommodation for you, your family, and the family of the other committee member, at the 5 star Excelsior Hotel just 3 miles from Scatsa airport. There were only 5 rooms available in the next two weeks, so I have taken the liberty of securing these. One of those is the PRESIDENTIAL suite, and I have reserved this for yourself and your wife.

I am also making very good progress with my Mafia contacts in Russia to get a special charter flight to collect your group from Lagos airport. The cost of the flight will be about $25,500 US dollars, but given the confidentiality regarding this transaction, I feel it is money well spent. The aircraft is a modified Russian freight aeroplane, and can cope with several tonnes of cargo. The flight time to Scatsa airport is estimated at 8 hours, so I shall arrange for beds to be placed in the main passenger compartment, and to ensure there is plenty of food and drink available.

I look forward to meeting you in the near future.

Yours Sincerely

Igor

Dear Igor Krehtzen,
Call me if you are interested in this deal.

I'll let him off with the name change this time to see what he replies with next.

Quote:

Dear Godfrey,

I am very interested in this deal, as I have said to you before this is the chance of a lifetime opportunity, not to be missed.

Unfortunately, I cannot telephone Nigeria, as I do not have international dialling access at work, or on my mobile telephone. I cannot use my telephone at home, as I am certain it is being monitored by the customs people here in the UK.

My secure fax number is +44 xxxx xxxxxx, and I would appreciate it you could fax me some proof of this deal, and who you are, and I shall be more than happy to take things further. Once I am satisfied that this is a genuine transaction, I shall give you my telephone number, and you can contact me and we shall take things further. As mentioned before
, I have many thousands of US dollars in a secure bank account, waiting to be used to cover the expenses of releasing the documents from Nigeria, but I would prefer if we could use forgeries here in the UK, as I can get these done at no cost to myself.

Could you please send me an e-mail, as soon as you have sent the fax, and I shall collect it from the fax machine, in case one of my colleagues picks it up whilst I am away from my desk.

Your Sincerely

Igor Krehtzen.

Dear Igor Krehtzen,
It is very difficult to believe this great opportunity
and offer especially from a stranger.
I will be 42 years old by october, what will I gain
engaging on any ungenuine transaction.
I mailed to you my house address and telephone number
for you to trust me. I shall send my recent photograph
through attachment tomorrow for you to know the person
you are dealing with.
Sending Faxes will not be confidential.
If you agreed to front for us as the Foreign
contractor that executed a contract to the tune of
$18,000,000.00 but has not been paid, I will start
securing the documents tomorrow Genuinely and legally,
their is no way you can Forge or secured the documents
illegally because the documents are going to be issued
by the parastata in charge (NEPA, Board Of Inland
Revenue, Federal Ministry of Finance).
We should not bother about what we are spending at the
moment but what we shall reap nextweek.
We were able to raise funds through the sales of
properties and valuable because we know what we are
gaining nextweek.
Igor think of what you are investing to gain
US$3,600,000.00 in less than a week.
It is a pity you do not appreciate this great offer.
The problem is that you do not understand the deal, I
believe as time goes on you will understand.
I await your urgent response.

Godfrey I.
NB: DO NOT DISCUSS THIS DEAL WITH ANYBODY FOR NOW,
TILL IT IS CONCLUDED.


He's losing trust perhaps. Time to show him the colour of the money and ask for some proof.
Quote:

Dear Godfrey,

I am as committed to this private transaction as you are, and I am already making plans for my retirement.

I have sufficient funds in my bank account to cover most costs to be expected with documentation (over $57,689).

I did try calling you yesterday, but you were not there when I called, and I could not hold on for ever, as I only had so much money available from the public call box.

I can assure you that I have not discussed this deal with anyone else, not even my dear wife and children.

If you can fax me proof of identity on +44 xxxx xxxxxx (this is a secure fax in my own office, so no-one else will see it), it will re-assure me completely that you are who you say you are, and I shall be happy to proceed with our private transaction.

I am also pleased to inform you that I have now set-up a joint bank account, with both our names as authorised signatories. The bank will need a specimen of your signature as proof of identity, and I can assure them with a fax from yourself. This receipt of a fax is very important to me and the bank for proof of identity.

Yours Sincerely

Igor Krehtzen


He sends a very poor fake passport, and also a specimen invoice (Word Document). You can tell this was done before the days of sophisticated photoshop expertise. For some reason he is sending this e-mail from a different address today. Can't imagine it would be anything to do the e-mail I sent to [email protected] ?

Dear Igor_Krehtzen,
I called the phone number (+44xxxxxxxxxx) you filled in the Invoice specimen I was referred to +44xxxxxx, the lady that pick up the phone said it is a police station. Please advise what is going on I do not understand.


Godfrey Isesele.


OK, he knows it's a police station, but it's cost him the price of a few international phone calls. Lets see if I can add a new twist by pretending to be a police officer and also get him to call yet again


Quote:

Godfrey,

I am a police officer! I am a detective sergeant for XXXX Police, but also have my own financial services company (Aberdeen Financial Consultants Ltd), which I operate in my spare time. The telephone number I gave you was correct, although I am not on duty this weekend.

Please call me again on Monday.

I am depending on you to keep confidential about our transaction, as I have been. As there is nothing illegal about this transaction, neither of us have anything to fear from the authorities.

I have invested a lot of time and effort (and some money), in setting up the shared bank account (it's because I am a police officer that the bank are prepared to accept your faxed signature as proof of identity). This is also the reason that I can assure that the fax number in my office is very secure.

I look forward to receiving your fax and telephone call on Monday morning, and hope that we can complete this transaction next week as you have promised.

Yours Sincerely

Igor



He's obviously stung by the cost of phoning the UK so encourages me to phone him.

Dear Igor Krehtzen,
I received your mail.
I shall send the signature as proof of identity on Monday, as I earlier said I do not want us to forge any documents or signature, if opening joint account will need my physical present at the moment regarding my signature, do go ahead and open the account with a single signature.
I trust you and believe you cannot run with the $18,000,000.00.
I tried your number, the voice mail directed the call to another number.
Since you have difficulties in getting through to my phone number. Do call me on 234-8033-257657, it has been upgraded today. When you call do ask of a PASSWORD, if I am unable to tell you the PASSWORD, hangup the phone and call back immediately. The PASSWORD IS GODFREY.
We have to be careful whenever you call, so that you will not disclose this transaction to another person.
Use only the above phone number.
Thank you very much and have a happy weekend.

Dear Godfrey,

thanks for the kind message. I am not on duty this weekend, which means it will be a very nice weekend. I look forward to completing this transaction next week with you, so we can both look forward to a very profitable future together.

Thanks for the mail.
We have started securing the documents, I prayed the Certificate of Incorporation and Three Years Tax Income Clearance should be out on Monday after making the required payments, and I shall send them to you through attachment along with my signature for the joint account.
Igor you shall help us financially for the securement of Certificate of Registration with NEPA and Job Completion Certificate as soon as possible. It is these documents along with the account that will be forwarded to the Federal Ministry of Finance for an Approval to be given for payment of the $18,000,000.00 into your account.
I shall be grateful if this transaction is concluded this week, I count on you.

He sends a message over the weekend, asking for confidentiality. Like his last e-mail, I just ignore it.

If you are confidential we have a greater this to do in Future.

Do respond as soon as possible.

Godfrey,



OK, time to show him the colour of the money again. Lets see how greedy he is.

Quote:

Godfrey,

of course I am willing to assist. I can transfer funds electronically, or mail over US dollars by DHL. This would take me a day or two to get though, as I need to transfer money from one account to another, and then get the the cash withdrawn.

How much of the $54,678 US dollars that I have in the account would you need access to ?

Yours Sincerely

Igor


Not surprisingly he replies very quickly. He wants about 60% of all the funds offered him. He has in fact managed to come up with some fake documents

2. Certificate of Job Completion is $14,000, All together $32,000.
These two documents along with the two I sent through attachment and your account shall be forwarded to the Federal Ministry of Finance
For them to release the $18,000,000.00 into our account.
I am going to talk to my banker's if they can give me an offshore account where you shall send the $32,000 into on comfirmation of the money in the offshore account we shall withdraw it here to secured the documents as soon as possible.
I shall give you feedback from my bankers immediately.
Thank you and God bless you richly.

Godfrey.

His photoshop skills are worse than I imagined. He can't even use the tool to get the documents the right way up! At least he's spent a bit of time producing them, printing them and scanning them in. Time to drop the bombshell that I can't send him money without an invoice first

Quote:

Dear Godfrey,

the money is not a problem. All I need are some invoices so that I can clear the money from my business account, and transfer it electronically to you. I trust the NEPA shall be able to supply these invoices without problem. I shall need them faxed to my fax number (given previously), and also the originals sent by DHL my works address (again given previously).

Given that international electronic fund transfers can take up to 10 days to complete, I could withdraw the money in cash, and DHL it over to you, as this should enable you to release the $18,000,000 more quickly.

On receipt of the two invoices, I shall arrange for the transfer of the funds by DHL. I shall send the money to yourself, directly at NEPA. The envelope will be marked confidential, and only to be opened by yourself, so that no-one else knows about this private transaction.

Yours Sincerely

Igor.

Dear Igor Krehtzen,
If you know what I am going though here in Nigeria, you will not ask me to send you an NEPA Invoice through DHL that will take three days to get to you before you will now send the money through DHL that will be noticed by inspection agent and will not only loose my job but loose all my properties I have Mortgage to raise funds for the sucessful conclussion of this transaction.
The best way to conclude this transaction is for you send the $32,000 through electronic wire transfer into the offshore account which I shall be sending tomorrow. It will be cleared within 48 hrs.
For the Invoice, you own your company, you can arrange an invoice there in Uk to be able to withdraw the Money from the business account.
I await your urgent response.


Godfrey.



Time to lay down the law. I can't give him any money without an invoice.

Quote:

Dear Godfrey,

perhaps you do not understand the Tax laws in the UK, and how vigilant they are regarding company accounts for financial consultancy companies like my own. Unless I receive an invoice from an overseas company for the specified amount, I could potentially end up in jail for tax evasion. For me to get the money out of the business account, I must have an invoice from yourself (or your company) which the UK Inland Revenue and VAT people will not chase up. If I generate one in the UK, the will then investigate further, and check with the company which supplied the goods or services to make sure that they did proceed with the transaction, and supplied the good etc.

It would be very much simpler for me if you could generate an invoice, from a company in Nigeria for goods or consultancy services provided, which will permit me to keep the UK Tax authorities satisfied, and prevent me from going to jail for tax evasion.

I hope you understand that this is very important to me, and I do not wish to go to jail, when I will have my share of the $18 million sitting in a bank account and being unable to spend it.

I urge you to please send such an invoice by fax tomorrow, and follow it up with a copy which has been sent by DHL to my company address. This invoice should include full details of the offshore account for which the funds should be paid into.

I trust you implicitly in this transaction, and am fully committed to helping you get your share of the $18 million, and also to help you get out of Nigeria to live a life of luxury in Fraserburgh here in Scotland.

Yours Sincerely

Igor


He's very worried about the thought of all that money being sent as cash, especially as he hasn't given me a proper address (I assume)

Dear Igor Krehtzen,
Thanks for the mail.
The idea of sending the money through DHL is not Confidential and it is risky.
All percel that enters the country are been scream by special task force on Terrorist.
I have discuss the time factor with my bankers, he said once the $32,000 is wired to their offshore account on confirmation they will give us the Money here (within 48hrs). It is the quickest, more confidential and reliable.
My banker promise to give me the account tomorrow for you to wire the $32,000 by 11 am my time. I shall send it to you as soon as collect it.
I do not understand the type of Invoice. do explain further.

Godfrey



I'm not giving up on the idea of sending the cash yet. I tell him that wire transfer will take too long. I'll also offer to send very high denominations which he won't easily be able to cash anywhere without arousing suspicion

Dear Godfrey,

I would not believe your banker if he says that the money will be transferred in two days. I have done many transactions like this in the past, and the minimum is 5 working days. With the weekend rapidly approaching, if I transfer the funds electronically, then it will be at least the end of next week, or possibly the week after before it clears into your account, and I am fearful that this will be too late to complete our transaction. This is why I suggest sending the money in cash by DHL. I would get 3 ten thousand US dollar bills, and 2 one thousand US dollar bills, so there would only be 5 pieces of paper in a small envelope.

I am certain that even if the envelope was scanned, then nothing would show up as being a terrorist risk. This way, the contents of the DHL parcel are also fully insured against all loss, so if it went missing along the way somehow, then I would get a full refund from DHL.

I have sent you information about the invoice in another e-mail.

I am also confused by the statement that you have sold your house to finance this transaction. If you have done this, why do you need the $32,000.00 US DOLLARS from myself. I am just curious.

Yours Sincerely

Igor Krehtzen


He now seems convinced that the money is coming, so is pulling out the stops to get the invoice to me.

Dear Igor Krehtzen,
Thanks for the mail.
I have been trying to arrange an invoice all through the day.
I have arrange one that I will be sending to you as an attachment including the offshore bank account for you to make changes to the invoice to match the UK recommendation. So that i will finally fax it to your company Fax number tomorrow. Do comfirm the company's fax number.

Godfrey,



He asks for my fax number again, despite having been given it several times before. Oh, but wasn't that on his previous e-mail address why someohw got deleted by those nice people at Yahoo ? Oh well, time for a bit of a telling off anyway.

Quote:

Dear Godfrey,

my fax number is +44 xxxx xxxxxx, which I have sent you on several occasions before. Do you not keep my earlier e-mails on record ???

I look forward to receiving your invoice tomorrow, and I can get ready to transfer the funds.

You mentioned that you were setting up an offshore account, but in your first e-mail you said that civil servants were prevented from setting up such accounts in your country. I am puzzled and I hope that you can explain further.

Yours Sincerely

Igor


I get a very urgent reply and the invoice is here. I'm impressed by the ingenuity of the invoice, but the quality is terrible.

Dear Igor Krehtzen,
I am not settng up an offshore account, rather I am using my bankers offshore account by telling them that my school mate from UK wants to by shares from SIGMUND COMMUNIQUE lTD. hence they agreed. It took me hours to convince them.
If the fund is confirm in the offshore account, he will give it to me here in Nigeria. I am doing all this to make sure the money gets to me immediately so that we can secure the documents and get the $18,000,000.00 transfer to your account.
I am sending the Invoice through attachment for you to go through and make correction before I send it to you company fax number.
I requested for your fax, to make sure the one you sent previously is correct, we have to be very careful not to make mistake.
Igor, I am very sorry for the delay, i have to be careful over here considering my personality. Do make ammedment and send if so that I shall fax to your company faxnumber.
I await your urgent response.

Godfrey,

A quick call to the bank of China in London to inform them about overseas scams using one of their accounts follows. They promise to investigate and immediately freeze the account pending further enquiries. I ask for a better copy of the invoice

Quote:

Dear Godfrey,

the invoice looks fine in principal, but it is a bit blurry to read at the top due to the poor quality of the scanning.

Could you please scan in the document again at a higher resolution and send it to me.

Alternatively, could you please fax it to me on my fax number which I gave you in my last e-mail.

Yours Sincerely

Igor

Dear Igor Krehtzen,
What is the situation of thing, I hope no problem.
Please response as soon as possible.
I am worried.

Godfrey,



Time to reassure him that all is well, but there has been a slight mix up. The money has gone and he's being shipped the goods instead. I was going on holiday in real life the next day so wanted to bring things to a close quickly

Quote:

Dear Godfrey,

many thanks for your concern. I was off duty at 3pm yesterday afternoon, and was watching the world cup football this morning.

There has been a slight problem with the transaction. As I didn't hear from you most of yesterday, rather than delay the process any further I arranged to get an invoice for some goods from one of our local supply companies to gain access to the funds.

Unfortunately there was a mix-up at the supply company, and their sales department treated the invoice as a real order, and have shipped the goods. Unfortunately, the junior secretary got the delivery addresses mixed up as well on the order. Therefore the money has been deducted from my company account and the goods are being sent directly to your home in Nigeria.

I can only apologise for the mix-up. I am furious with the supply company, but as it was an honest mistake, there is nothing we can do about it. The goods have already been shipped, and should be arriving at your home address sometime early next week.

My best suggestion would be for you to take delivery of the goods (they are worth $32,000 US DOLLARS), and sell them locally in Lagos at your market for a massive profit.

Unfortunately it means you will have to wait a little longer to get the money, but the profit potential will be fantastic, and you should end up with a lot more than $32,000 US DOLLARS to cover the documentation fees, and any additional expenses you incur.

Again I can only apologise for the mix-up, but with the potential profit you can make from this deal, the benefits for yourself are even greater.

If the goods had not already been dispatched, I would have taken delivery myself, and sold them locally here in Scotland, but alas they have already left the country and are on their way to Nigeria.

I truly hope that you understand the situation, and that it will not impact our private transaction, which we can conclude once you take recepit of the goods next week.

Yours Sincerely

Igor Krehtzen



Godfrey replies stating that he doesn't want to take delivery of the goods and wants the cash. Goods are no use to him and he needs the cash. BTW, he wants to know that the goods are. (Might he be interested in them if there's a good market for them locally ?) I've actually lost his reply (sorry), but here's my reply to him which explians that they are state of the art underfloor heating panels. I'm sure they'll go down a storm at local markets. I'll encourage him to waste the cost of one more phone call.

Quote:


Dear Godfrey,

I cannot understand where your problem is. The company I deal with has made an honest mistake in the UK, but I am sure it will work out better for everyone concerned in the long run.

All you need to do is to accept receipt of the goods (which I'll remind you have a trade price of $32,000 US DOLLARS), but probably have a street value in excess of $120,000 US DOLLARS. You will recover the $32,000 US DOLLARS required to release the documents we need to access to the $18,000,000 US DOLLARS within a matter of days.

The goods themselves are TOP OF THE RANGE underfloor heating panels. These are the latest high-tech ceramic fibre design, and are almost 98% efficient, in turning electricity into useable heat in the home. A typical central heating radiator system is only about 10% efficient.

Although expensive, these units pay for themselves within a matter of months.

These panels retail for $125 US DOLLARS each here in the UK, though the order we placed was at the cost price of only $30 US DOLLARS each. This means that there is a profit of $95 US DOLLARS per panel, each of which will adequately heat a large room in an average family home.

I am confident that through your employment with NEPA, you will be able to sell these panels very quickly at a massive profit.

Once you have recovered the $32,000 investment, you can then transfer the funds into the joint account which I have set-up, and we can both look forward to a financially secure future.

Please call me on +44 xxxx xxxxxx to discuss this futher, as I have invested too much time and money for things to go wrong at this stage.

Your Sincerely

Igor Krehtzen


He replies quickly. Obviously the goods aren't to his liking and the deal is off. This suited me fine at the time as I was going on holiday the next day.

Dear Igor Krehtzen,
Well I do not understand the kind of goods you are sending to my house.
I am not a businessman, It was a deal I wanted to do with you.
Considering my position in the country I will not accept that goods.
I would advise you call back the goods, which I know is very possible and I will move forward.
Thanks and God bless.

Godfrey,



Thus ends this bait. At least I managed to waste quite a bit of his time, got him to produce some fake documents all to no avail.
