2002.
SINCE THE DECEASED WAS UNABLE TO RUN THIS ACCOUNT SINCE HIS DEATH. THE
ACCOUNT HAS REMAINED DORMANT WITHOUT THE KNOWLEDGE OF HIS FAMILY SINCE
IT WAS PUT IN A SAFE DEPOSIT ACCOUNT IN THE BANK FOR FUTURE INVESTMENT BY
THE CLIENT. SINCE HIS DEMISE, NOBODY, NOT EVEN THE MENBERS OF HIS FAMILY
HAVE APPLIED FOR CLAIMS OVER THIS FUND AND IT HAS BEEN IN THE SAFE DEPOSIT
ACCOUNT UNTIL WE DESCOVERED THAT IT CANNOT BE CLAIMED SINCE OUR CLIENT
IS A FOREIGN NATIONAL AND WE ARE SURE THAT HE HAS NO NEXT OF KIN HERE TO
FILE CLAIMS OVER THE MONEY. AS THE DIRECTOR OF THE DEPT, THIS DISCOVERY WAS
BROUGHT TO MY OFFICE SO AS TO DECIDE WHAT IS TO BE DONE. WITH THE FEW
PERSONEL IN MY DEPT, WE DECIDED TO SEEK WAYS THROUGH WHICH WE CAN
TRANSFER THIS MONEY OUT OF THE BANK AND OUT OF THE COUNTRY TOO. THE TOTAL

WITH OUR POSITIONS AS STAFF OF THE BANK, WE ARE HANDICAPPED BECAUSE WE
CANNOT OPERATE FOREIGN ACCOUNTS AND CANNOT LAY BONAFIDE CLAIM OVER THIS
MONEY
WHILE WE WERE CONTEMPLATING ON WHAT TO DO. A FRIEND OF MINE WHO WORKS
WITH THE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE AND INDUSTRY RECOMMENDED YOUR PERSONALITY TO ME
AND ADVISED ME TO ASK YOU FOR HELP, TO TRANSFER THIS MONEY OUT OF THE
COUNTRY. THE CLIENT IS A FOREIGN NATIONAL AND YOU WILL ONLY BE ASKED TO
ACT AS HIS NEXT OF KIN AND I WILL SUPPLY YOU WITH ALL THE NECESSARY
INFORMATIONS AND BANK DATA TO ASSIST YOU IN BEING ABLE TO TRANSFER THIS
MONEY TO ANY BANK OF YOUR CHOICE WHERE THIS MONEY COULD BE TRANSFERED
INTO.
I AND MY PARTNERS HAVE DECIDED TO GIVE AWAY THIRTY % (30%) TO YOU
FOR YOUR ASSISTANCE AND TEN (10%) FOR ANY EXPENSES THAT MIGHT ARISE DURING
THE TRANSACTION OF THIS TRANSFER. WE WANT TO ASSURE YOU THAT THIS
TRANSACTION IS ABSOLUTELY RISK FREE SINCE WE WORK IN THIS BANK WHICH IS WHY
YOU SHOULD BE CONFIDENT IN THE SUCCESS OF THIS TRANSACTION BECAUSE YOU WILL
BE
UPDATED WITH INFORMATION AS AT WHEN DESIRED.
WE WILL PLEASE WISH YOU KEEP THIS TRANSACTION SECRET AS WE ARE HOPING
TO RETIRE WITH OUR SHARE OF THIS MONEY AT THE END OF TRANSACTION WHICH
WILL BE WHEN THIS MONEY IS SAFELY HITS YOUR ACCOUNT. WE WILL THEN COME OVER
TO
YOUR COUNTRY FOR SHARING ACCORDING TO THE PREVIOUSLY AGREED PERCENTAGES YOU
MIGHT EVEN HAVE TO ADVISE US ON POSSIBILITIES OF INVESTMENT IN YOUR
COUNTRY OR ELSEWHERE OF OUR CHOICE. MAY GOD HELP YOU TO HELP US TO A RESTIVE
RETIREMENT. AMEN.

He is testing you. The fact that he could not open the dll file has made him suspicious. He will now want a second photo of the same person to verify that it is really you.

The problem with sending any photos to a scammer is that your photo (presumably it is just something you harvested off the internet) may end up being used by your scammer on some innocent victim.

There have been lengthy lists of ideas posted her of what to do when the scammer asks for a photo. Besides the "dll" idea, say:

(a) I don't have a passport.
(tell the lad it will take you days to apply for a passport, but you are willing to do it for him. Of course, you will have lots of questions for him about how to apply for a passport)

(b) I don't have a scanner
(ask the scammer what brand to buy. You will need several days to actually buy it. You will then need lots of advice on how to hook it up. Then there will be problems when it does not work . . . )

(c) I sent it, but my e-mail was intercepted by the CIA who notified me that I was violating US law, in the wake of 9/11, by sending a scanned e-mail of a passport.

BE CREATIVE!

Dear Zongo,

As we have reached a crucial stage in this deal, would you please send me a photograph of yourself holding a piece of paper with the words "Ground control to Major Tom" written on it, so that I can confirm your identity?

Your friend,

I was just like you when I started my first baits. I wanted a trophy within 3 emails or otherwise what was the point of it all.

I have since learnt that you have to take it slowly and the trophy has to be a vital part of him getting his money. I have a current bait which in 6 days time will be 6 months old and I got my first personalised photo trophy from him about 2 weeks ago. We are approaching 300 emails and I now realize that I get a lot more pleasure out of dragging a bait out for as long as possible than I do from the instant gratification of a trophy.
