Subject: hello

My name is Mr. micheal benny , I am the chief auditor of a
reputable bank here in Nigeria. I would want to use this medium after
going through your profile to seek for foreign assistance in a business
transaction which is of mutual benefit. A foreigner late Mr. David
Donald who is from New Zealand, an Oil Merchant/Contractor with the
Federal Government of Nigeria, until his death in a car mishap, who
banked with us at our Bank and had a closing balance of US$48.5 million
which the bank now expect any of his available next of kin to claim. To
this regards, I have been directed by the board of Trustees of the bank
to notify the diseased next of kin, which i have done and found out that
he has no next of kin.which means that this funds will be lost to the
government, which we all know will be stolen .In order to avert this
development, myself and some of my trusted colleagues in the bank now
seek your indulgence to have you stand as late Mr. David Donald’s next
of kin so that the fund will be subsequently transferred and paid into
your foreign account. On indicating your interest,all documents and
proofs to enable you get this funds will be carefully worked out and we
are assuring you a 100% risk free transaction. You will be allowed to
retain 20% of the total amount after the transaction. If this proposal
is okay by you, and you wish to take advantage of the trust bestowed on
you, kindly contact me with this e-mail address [email protected] to
enable me furnish you with relevant details to this transaction.

Best regards,
Micheal Benny.

Wow free money! This sounds too good to be true! I really believe in your cause, and would like to help out in any way possible. I want to help make sure that the greedy government doesn't get their hands on any of this money. I am a very trust worthy person as I'm sure you are too which is why I don't question that a stranger from an anonymous email address would present me with this opportunity. I believe in fate, miracles and the power of karma!
Though we are poor, my senior citizen wife & I would be willing to invest the last of our life savings into a "100% risk free transaction" like this.
Please tell us more!

Thank you!

Dear Roger,

Once again thanks for your swift response and i appreciate the fact
that you want to work with me to get this money transfered at the
fastest possible time.

Now before i send you the first step which is the text of
application i will like to tell you this ?

1. you must have an account where the money will be transferred
to [make sure its empty so you could be sure there is no funny act] you
can open one if you wish to.

2. you will have 20% of the total fund as your share [if you think
its not okay by you please let me know as greed wont be the obstacle to
the sucess of the business]

3. you must prove to me that i can trust you becuase the money will go
to your account

when i get a reply from you again i would believe you have read
this over and over again then i will believe i can trust you and
forward the text of application to you immediately so we can proceed.


(3 days later)

I was wondering if you got my mail.Well i sent you a mail in
response to your reply and if you didnt get please let me know quickly
so as to send it again and if you did let me know


Hello Mr. Benny,

I did receive your email last week and haven't responded yet because I must say I am a bit nervous about all of this. Some of my friends told me that these types of things on the internet are scams. I think I even a saw something very similar to this offer on the news that showed people like me saying that had lost all of their money on this type of thing.
Mr. Benny you wouldn't do this to me would you? I need to be sure that I can trust you. I mentioned to you before that I am a senior citizen living on a fixed income didn't I? My wife is ill and any loss in money could be detrimental to us.
I'm probably just being paranoid, but you can't be too careful with these sorts of things.

Why havent i heard from you?


Mr. Benny,

I decided to have the authorities take a look into this issue. They have recognized you as a known scam artist and are actively pursuing you for arrest.
An agent from the FBI has asked me to forward all of your emails to him so that he can track your IP address. They directed me to this site to read all about your little scam, how it works, and how you planned to sucker me out of my money.
I can't believe you would do this to an old couple with so little money. You are shit! Any further email from you will be forwarded to the agents that are helping me try to find you.


This is no scam .Do you think i am heartless listen i am
educated,i work in a bank .All you would have siad is you aint intrested
instead of abusing me .

But when I did this last December, I had no idea about this site or the potential, I was just messing with him. Now that I have all of this great ammo, I will make the next on much better. Hopefully with pictures!
