This is my second scam-baiting jaunt. I'm going to try and keep this one simple, rather than including loads of characters like I did last time. Our story starts as usual with a seemingly implausable set of events that means I'm going to get rich....


Tel/002 76 64 78 15

Dear friend,

Compliments,Salam Alaykum!
I am the manager of bill and exchange at the foreignremittance department of BANK OF AFRICA in
Ouagadougou,Burkina faso.

I am writting to seek your coperation over this business deal.In my department,I discovered an abandoned sum of$10million USD(TENmillion US dollars)only , in an account that belongs
to one of our foreign customers who died along with his entire family in a plane crash that took place inKenya,East Africa,the Late DR. GEORGE BRUMLEY,a citizen of Atlanta,United States of America but naturalised in Burkinafaso,West Africa and contractor with ECOWAS,(ECONOMIC COMMUNITY OF WEST AFRICAN STATES) .

Since we got information about his death, we have been expecting his next of kin to come over and claim his money because it cannot be released unless somebody applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines but unfortunately,all his supposed next of kin or relation died alongside with him at the plane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim. It is therefore upon this discovery that I now decided to maket his businness proposal to you and release the money to you via your foreign bank account as the next of kin or relation to the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and this money
could go into the Bank treasury as unclaimed Bill.

The Banking law and guideline here stipulates that if such money remained unclamed after four years, the money will be transfered into the Bank treasury as unclaimed fund.The request for your assistance and maximum co-operation as a foreign citizen to stand as the next of kin in this
business is occasioned by the fact that the deceased customer was a foreigner and a Burkinabe cannot stand as next of kin to a foreigner.

I agreed to offer you 30% of this money as my foreign partner as soon as we conclude up the transaction,being inrespect to the provision of a foreign account. 10 %will
be set aside for expences incured during the business and 60% would be for me.There after I will come over to your country for disbursement accoding to the percentages indicated.

Therefore to enable the immediate trnansfer of this fund to you as arranged,you must apply first to the bank as the relation or next of kin to the deceased,indicating your claims and wherein the money will be remitted.

Upon receipt of your reply, I will send to you by fax or email the text of application which you will fill and submit to the office of the foreign remittance director of the Bank Of Africa.

I will not fail to bring to your notice that this transaction is stricly confidential and i will use my
position in this Bank to effect a hitch free transfer of the fund.

You should contact me immediately as soon as you receive this letter.

Trusting to hear from you immediately.

Please, visit the website below for more informations about the Plane Crash and the tragic death of the deceased and his entire family, Late DR. GEORGE BRUMLEY.

Yours Faithfully,


Dear Salam Alaykum,

Your letter has reached me, Phil Collins. I've been waiting for this moment, all my life.

Your deal interests me a lot. What guarentees can you give me about the legitimacy though? The last business deal I was involved in went very badly. Something Happened on the Way to Heaven for me, whilst my business partner spent yet Another Day in Paradise, on my money!

Anyway, I am prepared to stand as next of kin Tonight, Tonight, Tonight. Please send me the details.


Phil Collins

Looks like he got lucky and mailed Pop-rocker Phil Collins...

Dear My Phil,

Thanks a lot for your reply and your keen to assist me in achieving this great opportunity that came my way as a result of my position in the bank.

Well i want to assure and reassure you that this transaction is 100% risk free and moreover you have nothing to fear about in dealing with me, since i am an insider in the bank i will protect and defend you in all areas and work earnestly to the smooth and success of this money to be safely transfered into your nominated account.

All i need from you is that, if you can strickly adhere to my instructions and guildlines towards this transaction the sky will be our limit.Again i want you to reassure me too that you are to be highly trusted if this mmoney is transfered into your account.

Right now i will forward the details of the transaction to you for you go through and know all that is involved and the next proccess to follow.Meanwhile i want you to keep this very confidential to yourself hence you know that i am still a serving staff with my bank.At your reply i will then tell you what next to be done.

About what you said of your sad exprience of your last business,well i dont know what you were into but i advice you to take it back and lets move forward and achieve this.This may be a way from God to conmpensate you.Below is the details,my telephone is (00226 76 64 78 12)Plese go through it and mail me fast.

Thanks for your kindness to me towards this transaction, I am here to
protect your image and be giving you all fundamental informations untill
this fund enters into your account because this transaction is my only hope
of life survival with my family.

What I want from you is to assure me of your capability of handling this
transfer with trust by giving me the following informations about yourself:

1) Your age

2) Your occupation

Based on this I will advise you to feel free all is well, I studied this
transaction very well before contacting you for assistance.

Well, having served this bank for so many years now and nearing my
retirement I deem it neccessary to utilise this opportunity of the present
unclaimed sum of money in the account sent inconjuction with the first
proposal I sent to you to help myself and my family after my retirement
through the investment I will establish in your country with my percentage
in the transaction.

There is no doubt about your eligibility as the legal next of kin to our
deceased customer and owner of the account number NADB4934109, with the
following reasons:

(a) Before the death of our deceased customer his true next of kin was not
indicated to the board of directors of the bank because of the top secrecy
and confidenciality of the transactions which our late customer transacted
with the verious governments in West Africa.

(b)Owning to his failure to indicate his next of kin to the officials of the
bank,it is therefore impossible for the board of directors of the bank to
verify the next of kin as well as the true heritier of the fund.

(c) And for the above reasons the managements of the bank authorised me
officialy as the executive manager,Bill and exchange department of the bank
to verify the next of kin to our deceased customer. Therefore, the bank will
always abide by my official directions through the official authorisation
bestowed on me. And for this reasons you have nothing to fear as your
interest and identity will be legally protected.

More so,the only informations required from you by the bank is your banking
datas as contained in the official application which I will give you to
send to our bank after your immediate response because the receipt of your
application is the commencement of the official process of this transaction.

Now I will like to use this opportunity to tell you the detail informations
concerning our deceased customer. The deceased account holder with our bank
was Mr George BRUMLEY, who naturalised here in Burkina
faso for (16) years. He held account number ......, ROUTING No :
91002211 with our bank. He died in kenya air ways that crashed at Abidja
with his family at as I stated in my first mail. Since his death, this
account has been dormant and nobody has applied to our bank for the release
of this money to him or her as the next of kin.

As the Bill and exchange Manager of this bank, I have studied this
transaction very carefully and I have noted that there are no risks
involved. I am here to protect all your interests in this transaction until
this money hits your account. Since I am here I shall be giving you all
the developmental information from the bank as soon as this transaction

I know that you will not disappoint me when this money enters your account,
I have all my hope in this transaction because I shall soon go on
retirement. I am a simple banker whose credibility is still intact and with
my maturity and understanding, I promise to give you the best co-operation.
We must hurry up with this transaction so that our bank and the government
shall not claim and inherit this money because it has over-stayed.

After the bank have approve your application as next of kin to our late
customer I will fly down your country for investment with my own share,but I
will advise you to keep it as a top sercet because no body again new about
this tranaction except you and I.




Dear Myanmar Bello,

Thanks for your quick reply, and for your concens over my past business dealings. I've come through the problems of the past Against All Odds (Take a Look at me Now!), and I'll be back on top with this deal you are proposing.

I've let two of my closest friends in on this deal. Do not be worried, I trust Tony Banks and Mike Rutherford with my life. They will be getting some of my share of the money. Anyway, here are the details you requested:

1) Age: 55

2) Occupation: Self Employed (Abacab Ltd). Part-Time Musician.

I'm glad this proposition is risk free. I've let my guard down recently, and I sometimes feel that I should Turn It On Again.

Get back to me as soon as possible if you need anything else, don't make me wait even One More Night!


Phil Collins.
