With due respect
to your person and much sincerity of purpose, I make this contact with you as I
believe that you can be of great assistance to me. My name is Dr Aki Rahma, from
Ouagadougou Republic of BURKINA FASO, West Africa . Presently i work in the
African development Bank as telex manager. I have been searching for your
contact since you left our country some years ago.
I do not know whether
this is your correct email address or not because I only used your name initials
to search for your contact .In case you are not the person I am supposed to
contact, please see this as a confidential message and do not reveal it to
another person but if you are not the intended receiver, do let me know whether
you can be of assistance regarding my proposal below because it is top
I am about to retire from active Bank service to start a new life
but I am sceptical to reveal this particular secret to a stranger. You must
assure me that everything will be handled confidentially because we are not
going to suffer again in life.
It has been 10 years now that most of the
greedy African Politicians used our bank to launder money overseas through the
help of their Political advisers. Most of the funds which they transferred out
of the shores of Africa were gold and oil money that was supposed to have been
used to develop the continent. Their Political advisers always inflated the
amounts before transfer to foreign accounts so I also used the opportunity to
divert part of the funds hence I am aware that there is no official trace of how
much was transferred as all the accounts used for such transfers were being
closed after transfer.
I acted as the Bank Officer to most of the
politicians and when I discovered that they were using me to succeed in their
greedy act; I also cleaned some of their banking records from the Bank files and
no one cared to ask me because the money was too much for them to control. They
laundered over $5b Dollars during the process .As I am sending this message to
you, I was able to divert Ten million five hundred thousand united state dollars
($10.5m) to an escrow account belonging to no one in the bank. The bank is
anxious now to know who the beneficiary to the funds is because they have made a
lot of profits with the funds.
It is more than Eight years now and most
of the politicians are no longer using our bank to transfer funds overseas. The
($10.5) Million Dollars has been laying waste but I don't want to retire from
the bank without transferring the funds to a foreign account to enable me share
the proceeds with the receiver. The money will be shared 60% for me and 40% for
There is no one coming to ask you about the funds because I secured
everything. I only want you to assist me by providing a bank account where the
funds can be transferred. You are not to face any difficulties or legal
implications as I am going to handle the transfer personally. If you are capable
of receiving the funds, do let me know immediately to enable me give you a
detailed information on what to do.
For me, I have not stolen the money
from anyone because the other people that took the whole money did not face any
problems. This is my chance also to grab my own but you must keep the details of
the funds secret to avoid any leakages as no one in the bank knows about the
Please get back to me if you are interested and capable to handle
this project I shall intimate you on what to do when I hear
from your confirmation and acceptance. If you are capable of being my trusted
associate, do declare your consent to me
Waiting for your urgent
response Yours Faithfully, Dr Aki

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell.
And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can.
So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we
hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
