So I started this thing about a week ago after hearing about these scams on a news item. Found this site, registered, got myself a mentor and then my profile disapeared into thin air. Any tips would be helpful (yeah, it'll prolly show how big of a noob I am) I must say my friends got a good laugh out of this untill now...

Quote:
Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire
West Africa.

Dearest One,

Greetings to you and your family.

Please i will be very glad if you could take your time to read this letter and let me know your sincere capacity to be my guardian about my inherited money.

In details: I am Master T***n K**o, the only son of late Chief Alfred K**o from the Republic of South Africa. I will be 22 years old this june 2006.

My father was a well established diamond and gold dealer in Johannesburg, South Africa. After 3 days he came back from a business meeting to Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire he was mobbed and attacked by unknown gunmen on his way to his private warehouse on his routine inspections accompanied by my only little sister Nene, who died instantly from a gun shot.
And my father died after 5 days in a private hospital. While on his sick bed he disclosed to me that he deposited huge amount of money up to 6.8million American dollars in one of the big banks in Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire indicating my name as his next of kin and heir to the money. He also told me during our conversations that in case he died of this attack i should look for a capable and trustworthy person who will take good care of me and will guide me in retrieving and investing this money wisely and to become useful in life.

Because of many wicked and frustrating ways of my Uncles back home in South Africa. I am here now in Abidjan and have located the bank where my father deposited the money and have successfully identified myself to them. But they refused to release the money to me insisting that i must present to them my legal guardian as demanded by my father's deposit agreement with them before they can release the money.

Please could you be my legal guardian by providing a safe bank account where this money will be safely transferred into for a very good and lucrative business in your country and also help in my relocation to your copuntry to stay with you for some time and to be able to comfortably finish my education.

I have made up my mind to compensate you with the 15% of the total money for your kind consideration and assistance.

In cheerful anticipation.

Master T***n K**o.


I sent the mail stating my interest because of the death of my father a few years ago and my mother being in far stage of cancer. In short: I need the money...
I took upon myself the fake name T**i C****v and a fake adress (Hotmail one/I know it's not safe though I already created some Gmail adresses for future baits)
His reply:

Quote:
Dearest T**i C***v,

Many thanks for your response to my letter and your sincere concerns towards my present difficult situation. My heart really goes out to you for the loss of your father too and pray that God sees to Mom's cancer sickness. You should take heart as we all are bound to accept our misfortunes with good faith. We all can always trust and beleive in what God can always do in our lives. Considering our respective situations i can beleive that God himself approves our working to help each other in any way possible.

About my case, i want to be assured that my case is very honest as i will not gain anything special by telling lies about te death of my beloved father.

I only needed your assistance because of my age as indicated in my father's deposit agreement with the bank.I will be 22 years this coming june and still cannot have direct access to that money because my father agreed with the bank that i should not be allowed access to the cash of the money until i become 25 years. They can only release the money before that time only if i present to them my legal guardian to make sure that any part of that money be put into good use. So that was why i needed you as my legal guardian as i cannot afford to continue suffering for more 3 years when i have enough to live with. That 3 more years could be very dangerous to my life, that is why i want something to be done as quick as possible.

I do not know the exact proof you might need but i attached with this letter my ID card, my photo and my late father's burial photo these are only the outstanding proof for now and you will be confirming more when the bank will start the transfer process because the bank adviced that we must have to legalize and update some of the transfer documents and we will be needing a lawyer to do that. So since there will be involvement of a lawyer i believe things will be followed the legal way without problems.

Also please i will appreciate if you could send me your photo as it is important i know you in person before our meeting after the transfer. I want you to send me your telephone number to try to call you.

I will wait your quick reply to this.

Sincerely yours,

Master T***n K**o.

Hi T***n,

The proof I'd wish to obtain would be any documents provided by your bank or notary, but judging from your photos I can clearly believe you to be trustworthy and the matter of these documents can be discussed on a later moment in time.

Before I wish to continue with this deal I'd like to know a bit more about you and I will tell something more about me. This to enhance our future relationship as business partners.

As you know my name is T**i C***v and I'm 24-years old. I attached a photo of myself in the hope I can produce for you the same amount of trust in me as I have trust in you, meaning we can trust each other.
I'm still single and never married. Neither have I any children.
Like I said in my previous mail: my father died a few years ago and my mother is suffering from severe cancer, though things are looking positive for her (may God keep blessing her).
I work for a Belgian Insurance Company called G***i (http://www.***.be/) and I am chosen for promotion to assistent-director in our firm in Mollem.
My hobbies are going for long walks along the beach, read poetry and photography.
I have a cat and a dog as compagnions: the cat is called Fluffy, because of her cute fluffy tail and the dog is called Max, because I was in the mood to call him Max.

I hope to receive the same information about you, so that I know which great person I'm dealing with.
Also, my bank asked for some documents (the ones I mentioned before) because of the large sum of money but as you aren't able to send them yet they agreed with a photo of you and somesort of confirmation. So here's an idea: could it be possible to send me a photo of you where you hold a piece of paper with "Ik, T***n K**o, word hier zwaar bij mijn pietje genomen door T**i C***v." This means: "I, T***n K**o, hereby give T**i C***v the right to manage my money." They prefer the Belgian version for their official documents. I hope this is not a big hassle for you and I trust you will take this obstacle with ease.

Hoping for a quick answer.

Kind regards,

T**i C***v


I went in way too fast for the trophy. Luckely it didn't turn him off (strange as I've seen some of his work in the Hall of Shame/he should be more cautious me thinks) Fake photo of me, cat and dog included.

Quote:
Dearest T**i,

Thanks for your reply and the photos sent to me. I received them well. You looked wonderful in that photo and i wish to meet you in person soon. I am very happy for you telling me more about youself and to hear that Mom's case is getting much better.

Well, i have heard all that you have said as it is very important we trust to each other in making things more easier for us. I can get some documents from the bank to show my father's transaction with them. I can also do as you have aked by holding a piece of paper with something written on it but i think that will not be useful and very dangerous for me. Because as a stranger here going about taking such pictures means dangerous exposures. It can put to danger my life and the money in question. It is not wise for people to know who i am and what i am up to. I just came here to quietly have this money transferred and move out too. If your bank must need any proof it must be from the bank or a legal practitioner. You should also know that i will not be safe if your bank should know all the details about my money to avoid some dubious bank officials diverting my money or any part of it, and you know i will not be happy with you if such thing will ever happen because of ignorant and carelessness.

The good news is that the bank here has already recognised me as the rightful beneficiary of the money and is ready to transfer it once i present my legal guardian to them and they also advised using any of their registered lawyers to update all our transfer documents to enable them to transfer the money into your account. If there will be any obstacle they must have told me that also.

Little about myself, as you can see i came from a decent home if not for the unfortunate misfortunes. Since i was i a kid i was a Papa's boy because my father divorced Mom when i was a kid because of what he called here wicked ways in life and she has since married to some one who happen to be my father's pioneer business associate. Because of all these i don't think she is so important in the present events because i cannot trust her in any way. I was doing my prelim course in Economics at the University when my father died and haven't gone back to school since then. I am a cool headed someone, likes reading interesting books, swimming and walking in beautifil gardens.

I can only send you photos i came down here with and cannot afford to go about exposing myself taking new photos. I therefore attach here another photo of mine and that of my father with an associate Uncle Charmant whom he said i should not contact for any help. The truth is that my father has a lot of business associates but warned i should not let anyone of them to know about this money and my future plans. That is why i am taking my time to make sure that i do not make any regretable mistakes no matter how little it may be.

So if everything is ok with you, i would want you to send to me your full names,contact address and phone number for your introduction to the bank for the transfer process to start soon.

In cheerful anticipation of your quick response.

Sincerely yours,

Master T***n k**o.

Hi T***n,

I wish to thank you for providing me this information about you. This will make participating with this operation so much safer and reliable.

So my information:

First name: T**i
Second name: B***n
Last name: C***v
Contact adress: Platzaklaan 27, 1740 Mollem

I can't give you a phone number for the simple reason I don't have a normal phone nor a mobile phone (this because my work requires to be online for almost every entire day and e-mail being a better option) You can reach me if you have a TextPhone, with which you can send message through a normal cable telephone (0325 65 44 15 47). If this is not possible you can always reach me on this mail-adress.

Now, could you please explain to me what will happen next? What am I supposed to do now and what are you going to do? I can't wait to help you out (I somehow feel we are connected in somesort of way and being a devoted Christian I can only think of this as God's Work/Bless the Lord!)

Hoping for a quick respons.

Kind regards,

T**i C***v

PS I will get my promotion on Thursday! Things start to look positive for us. Me, my mother, Fluffy and Max will hold a big blast party. Can't wait for Thursday.


All of my information is fake...

Quote:
Dearest T**i,

Thanks for your mail and the information sent to me. I am very happy about the event of your promotion at your place of work on Thursday. I wish i could participate in the events over there. Anyway it is not all yet as we still have more years ahead of us.

How is Mom doing today, hope she is getting on fine? How many are you in the family presently?

About your question on what next to do, i will go to the bank tomorrow morning for the submission of your information as my legal guardian so that the transfer process will begin. Whatever more information i got tomorrow, i shall let you know about it.

Also i do not have a phone number here. I am currently staying in a United Nations controlled refugee camp here. I had wanted to call you from a telephone boot but since that will not be possible, we will continue communicating through email, afterall it is more affordable and will save cost.

I will get back again to you tomorrow once i finished at the bank.

Wishing you a happy sunday.

Yours sincerely,

Master T***n K**o.

--------------------------------------------------

Dearest T**i,

With hope all is well with you today.

As i told you in my yesterday mail, I went to the bank this morning to inform them my readiness to do the transfer and they directed me to one of their registered lawyer by name Barrister S***n A***d who will advice us more on the bank's requirements needed for the transfer. I met with the lawyer and he listed to me all that we need to do. I now told him the need to inform and discuss this matter with you because you are in a more better position to understand everything well. He now gave me his contact information to send to you asking you to contact him for the details. See his contacts below.

Barrister S***n A***d Esq.
Principal Attorney
K***a & Associates
Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire
Phone, 0022505191234
Email, *****@justice.com

Please do let me know as soon as you have contacted with the lawyer and approved everything to enable me to follow up things.

I will wait to hear from you again soon.

Yours sincerely,

Master T***n K**o


I've send a very formal mail to the barrister. Got a reply too (see one of the later mails)

Quote:
Hello T***n,

Oh man, the party will be great. I hope you will think of me that day and maybe the both of us can start the day with a prayer for our good future, because maybe it is time now to leave the past behind.

My Mom's situation is getting better by the day: she will probably have to go to the clinic for three more months and will then be declared healthy *hopefully*
About my family: I have told you about my mother, cat and dog. There's still one more member, though I don't know if it's appropriate to talk about him... It's my brother Fabio. A good lad and all, but he has a strange problem: he likes people from his own gender or as they say: he's a homosexual... Now, I know that the Dear Lord says that we must love all and I don't want to judge his way of life but it freaks me out a bit, as I think it's so dirty and wrong. Maybe you can help me, my friend: what's your opinion on this situation? What should I do? Should i forgive his foul acts and just castide him or should I punish him by throwing stones at him like others from our church community do? Your help would be so much appreciated.

I also received your mail from today. I'm glad everything went smooth at the bank and tomorrow morning I will contact your lawyer. I hope this will not cause too much paperwork as I have a lazy arm which hurts when I have to write. (nothing serious though) Doctor says it is caused by strenuous and monotonous movements with my arm. What has caused this is still a mystery to me.

Hope to hear soon from you.

Kind regards,

T**i C***v


Now I wanted to see how far I could drive him. The next is a mail sent by the President of my company (Gmail adress, don't worry)

Quote:
Very Urgent Message!

G**e T***n aan *******
Meer opties 11:43 (0 minuten geleden)

My utmost greetings,

this mail might come to you as a surprise and I do hope you please pay attention to what I say.

My name is G**e T***n and I'm the President of a Belgian company called G*****i. We are specialised in insurances and have several firms in Belgium.
It has come to mine and our bookholders attention that someone in our firm in Mollem is graduately robbing money from our private reserves. These persons (as there are two of them) have already cleared 1/3 of these reserves. One of them is still unknown to us, but we are sure that the other person in this case is T**i C***v. We have been able to track his mail adress from work (******@gmail.com) but could not find any desirable evidence. Though his banker has already told of huge sums of money being placed on his private bank account.
This is where we want to request something to you: we could not get into his private Hotmail account (*******@hotmail.com) but know from his adressbook that he frequently contacted you. We want to ask you (as it seems you're befriended with Mr. C***v) to keep contact with him and try to find evidence for this robbery. Warn me if you found out something and if we can solve this crime we might offer you a reward for special services to the Belgian community.
Contact me if this mail reached you and declare if you accept this request. Afterwards it seems for the better if we keep contact only for the most urgent needs.

I thank you in advance, Mr. K**o.

G**e T***n
President of G***i

My Dearest T**i,

Thanks for your mail, latest information about Mom and brother Fabio. About brother Fabio's case, truely it is highly bad before God as he did not make it to be so. But sometimes out of what i could not understand people always like to choose strange ways of life. The reasons were always best known to them. Remember he is your blood brother and you will do your best to accomodate him irrespective of his shortcomings.

I am glad to hear that you will contact the lawyer to clear the requirements of our money transfer. Please let me know the out come of your discussions with him.

Dear T**i, I received a surprised letter from supposedly the president of your Company. They were asking me about something i do not understand. I am worried about this developement. I do not understand how they get to know i have contact with you.

I am waiting for your urgent explanation on this matter before replying to it if it is important to do so. I copied the letter below for you to see and tell me exactly what is happening.

Sincerely yours,

T***n K**o

Here is the letter......................
[letter attached]


Seemed I had some explaining to do. Plus my very first slap ever (which made the adreneline flow and made me proud to be a scambaiter)

Quote:
Hello my friend,

Before I will clear the thick mist of confusion in your head I will mail you the answer of your lawyer S***n A***d which he sent me:

From the desk of:

Barr. S***n A***d
K***a & Associates
Abidjan,Coté d'Ivoiré
Phone-: +22505191234

Attention of: Mr. T**i C***v

Subject-: Mister T***n K**o, Legal Guardianship

Your email message of 31/01/2006 was well received and the contents well noted.

young man as quoted above for the legal procedures as
regards to his funds transfer with the BA-CI to your

Anticipating your compliance to the above directives to enable us to serve you better in the interest of justice.

Cordially,

S***n A***d Esq.
K***a & Associates.

Now for this strange mail you received:

Yes, I and a fellow collegue from another firm of Generali did do these "criminal" acts, though we don't see it as "criminal". Listen, there once was a man called Robin Hood, who lived in England near the the stadium of Sherwood Forrest FC. He too robbed rich people from their possesions by selling them black market tickets for football games of their beloved club. But, he did not keep the money for himself. No, he gave this money to charity and good causes, the poor and poorderder and poorests, people who needed the money but could not get their hands on it. This, my dear friend, is exactly what I'm doing: I rob this money to give it to the people who need it the most. My company has a lot of money and still asks heaps of money from people who can need it more. Me and my friend Mel Gibson (nickname Friar John, if you do decide to tell this to my boss) are just helping these people. It's the way God want it to be...

Now, I'm a bit insulted with your mistrust... Specailly after putting so much trust in you, a stranger a few days ago and now becoming a good friend. I'm sorry T***n, but this time I expect some serious apologies. And doing these apologies via mail is not enough. I want you to send me a photo (and this time I don't expect an excuse like "being scared for the picture to fall in wrong hands", as only I will see that pic/because YOU can trust ME!) with you saying sorry to me. You don't even have to be on the photo, though I want proof of you having taken the picture. If you do not do this I think I can't continue this deal as I think our trust is violated by your ignorance. I'm doing this for a good cause, try to understand that. If you do decide to apologies I will forget this misfortune (as friends can "forgive and forget") and I will send you my passport and bank account info.

You can send my company boss whatever you want, though, my friend, I have great trust in what you shall do. Please, do not jeopardize my promotion...

Hoping for a quick answer.

Kind regards,

Your friend T**i


Your input would be much appreciated!

well looks like you're trying things out...there's really no "forumla" you just have to find your style...and figure out what works for you...and you're doing it.

about your profile disappearing : there was a server problem over the weekend...took a while for DNS to catch up with all the changes afterwards. It seems to have been fixed now.

ANY webmail can be relatively safe if you use it through a proxy. You will just be sending the proxy's IP as the x-originating-IP
