More African Scams

I got one just like valarking:

From: David Tonah and sister,
Abidjan- Republic of Cote d’ Ivoire,
West Africa.

My Dear,

With utmost regards I crave your understanding of this proposal, I am
David TONAH the son of late Dr. George G. TONAH the former Financial
Controller of Cote d’Ivoire Telecommunication(CITELCOM) who was injured by
the heat of the political crisis here in my country Cote d’ivoire.And
after some days, before he died in the hospital, he handed over to us all
documents where he deposited (US$6 million Us dollars) in the bank as the
beneficiary contractor of the said company (CITELCOM). I got a very
recommendation of you in our private search and wish to propose this
business to you in a strict manner and confidence.

I am seeking your assistance for the Telegraphic Transfer of six million
United States Dollars (US 6,000,000) to your account for further private
investment and educational purposes in your country. This amount to
be transferred was accrued from an over-invoiced contract award for the
construction of an underground telephone network to replace the former in
the new capital city (Yamoussoukro) and other major cities also for
installation of the microwave station awarded to my late father George
G.TONAH in 2000 to expatriate companies.

The contract which was originally valued for ninety million United States
dollars (US$90,000,000.00) was manipulated to read eighty four million
united states dollars (US$84,000,000.00). The extra six million
US$6 was deposited in a fixed deposit account by our late father and
declared the money on behalf of his foreign partner overseas for security
reasons, this is what I want to transfer to your account as the
beneficiary / investor due for the deposit and payment. This contract has
been completely executed and the contractors have been paid all their
bills completely.

On your interest to assist me in this transaction, I require from you, a
successful reply so that i will send you, the Bank contacts where this
money is deposited, instructing them for the transfer of the $6 million
Dollars into your bank account.

In conclusion of this transaction we will offer you 12% of the total
amount, the rest will be released to us when we get to your country.
We have worked out all modalities concerning the transfer of this fund,
so in this transaction you are required to treat it with the strictest
confidence.

Thanks in Anticipation of your acknowledgement of this letter. Waiting for
your urgent response and copy to our alternative address bellow for
confirmation.

6 million dollars, and all i have to give him is my bank account #? Sounds like a deal to me :wink:

If I posted every time I got a scam email, you would have had the honor of reading hundreds of my scam emails. This is the third or fourth one posted here, I don’t really care anymore.

This is a varient of a dangerous scam called the “Nigerian Advance Fee Scheme”.
You can read about it here.

I got one like it too a couple years ago.

It’s because of people like you that this forum is becoming a negative community. You have to act like your some Administrator, and that you have to put down every single person. No damn wonder people are afraid to post here.

My reply was:

Dear David,
I am very sorry to hear about your father’s death. It must have been tragic. My sympathy will go to you and your relatives. As far as the money transfer, I may be willing to co-operate with you.

I am a very experienced business man in this country. Many people have worked with me. I do not deal with small and unimportant business transactions. I will require some kind of proof to show me that you are very serious about this business deal.

Please reply so we can discuss this further

Again, I am sorry to hear about the loss of your father, but I look forward to hearing from you.

Regards,
Butfer MacPhew

I hope to get a picture of someone holding a sign that says something. My favorite one like that was “I take it up the arse”

Don’t be a hypocrite.

Besides, it’s a valid point, or you wouldn’t be angry.
