A Scam Email with the Subject "Urgent response !!! From: Mr Adams Buhari" was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Thu, 18 Nov 2010 06:12:14 -0800 and has been classified as a Advance Fee Fraud/419 Scam. The sender was Adams Buhari <firstname.lastname@example.org>, although it may have been spoofed.
I am Mr.Adams Buhari, the director of the accounts & auditing dept .at the African Development Bank Ouagadougou-west Africa . (A D B).With due respect, I have decided to contact you on a business transaction that will be beneficial to both of us.
At the bank's last accounts/auditing evaluations, my staffs came across an old account which was being maintained by a foreign client who we learnt was among the deceased passengers on November. 2003. Since his demise, even the members of his family haven't applied for claims over this fund and it has been in the safe deposit account until I discovered 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 department, this discovery was brought to my office so as to decide what
is to be done. I decided to seek ways through which to transfer this money out of the bank.
The total amount in the account is Ten million five hundred thousand dollars (USD 10,500,000.00).with my positions as staffs of the bank, I am handicapped because I cannot operate foreign accounts and cannot lay bonafide claim over this money. The client was 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 information needed this fund.
The total sum will be shared as follows: 50% for me, 50% for you and expenses incidental occur during the transfer will be incur by both of us. The transfer is risk free on both sides hence you are going to follow my instruction till the fund transfer to your account.
I will wish you to keep this transaction secret and confidential, please for further information and enquires feel free to contact
for more explanation and better understanding
Thanks and remain blessed.
Mr Adams Buhari
