From: Frank Ford <>

This email with the subject "NICE TO HEAR FROM YOU." was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Sat, 21 Feb 2009 12:54:13 -0800 and has been classified as a Advance Fee Fraud/419 Scam.

The sender was Frank Ford <>, although it may have been spoofed.



My name is Mr. Frank Ford, the only son of Mr. Terry Ford of Zimbabwe. It
might be a surprise to you where I got your address from, it is through
network on online and internet search hence I decided to write you. Don't
be worried because I am contacting you in good faith and my transaction is
100% risk free and genuine.

During the government crisis against the farmers in Zimbabwe by the
supporters of our President Robert Mugabe to claim all the white owned
farms in our country, he ordered all the white farmers to surrender their
farms to his party members and their followers. Then my later father Terry
Ford was one of the best farmers in the country and knowing that he did
not support the President political ideology, the president supporters
invaded my father&#146;s farm and burnt down everything, killed him and my
mother and confiscated all his investments. Please view web site:

Before this unpleasant incident, my mother and my father Terry Ford had
already visited Abidjan Cote D Ivoire formally called Ivory Coast to
deposit the sum of (Ten Million United States Dollars) in the safe vault
of a Security and financial company here in Abidjan Cote D Ivoire . This
action was taken because My late father felt the growing tension on the
farm issue but I guess he never anticipated the tragedy that brought his
brutal and sudden death. At the time of deposition, the real content was
not disclosed to the security officials; instead, it was deposited as
Family Valuables Valued for the real content in the consignment.

After the bloody incident, we all had to escape out of our country for the
safety of our lives. We seek refuge in Abidjan Cote D Ivoire and we were
permitted to reside here as Political Refugees under section (5.9) Because
of our present and unpleasant status, my little sister and I are seriously
looking forward to having an overseas partner who is genuine and honest
that will assist us with the convenient and legal  transfer of the funds
out of Abidjan Cote D Ivoire for investment.

If my proposition is considered, for assisting us to  transfer this money
to your country, we will offer you  20% of the total fund, and 5% of the
total will be set aside  to cover any expenses incurred during this
transaction. 75% will be for my family to buy shares and invest in your
country under your supervision.

I would appreciate confidentiality and honesty in our
correspondence. Your immediate response will be highly
welcomed. I wait to hear from you.

Best Wishes,

Mr. Frank/ Beatrice Ford
