A Scam Email with the Subject "STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL." was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Mon, 22 Jun 2009 04:24:00 -0700 and has been classified as a Advance Fee Fraud/419 Scam. The sender was el-hadji musa ibrahim <firstname.lastname@example.org>, although it may have been spoofed.
First, I must solicit your confidence in this transaction this is by virtue of its nature as being uttermost confidential. However after series of petitions received by this present regime from foreign contractors and inability of the BANK OF AFRICA (BOA) to fulfil their obligations for the payment to all foreign contractors in conjunction with the council of ministers, they mandated Bank of Africa to carry out a comprehensive review of all overdue payments to foreign contractors and to effect payments immediately. During the above mentioned process,
we discovered an abandoned sum of US$15.M (fifteen million US dollars) in account that belongs to one of our foreign contractor who died along with his entire family in a plane crash that happened in Kenya Air ways, East of Africa.
Since the information about the Air crash was received, we have been expecting his relatives to come and claim his money because we cannot release it unless some body applies for it as next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guideline. Unfortunately we learned that all his supposed next of kin or relations died along side with him at the crash site leaving nobody behind for the claim. Please I want you to visit the website below for more information's about the Plane Crash:
upon this discovery I and other officials in my department now decided to make this business proposal to you and release the money to you as the next of kin or relation to the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and we don't want this money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill. I agree that 40% of this money will be for you as a foreign partner, while 60% will be for me,
I will visit your country for disbursement according to the percentage indicated. In this regards, you must apply first to the bank as the next of kin to the deceased indicating your private telephone and fax number for easy and effective communications. Upon the receipt of your reply, I will send to you by email the text of the application to fill and send to our bank for immediate transfer of the inheritance fund on your name. I will not fail to bring to your notice that this transaction is risk free 100% and the execution of this project will not be longer then 21DAYS.
