A Scam Email with the Subject "REPLY IMMEDIATELY." was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Sun, 28 Jul 2013 00:06:51 -0700 and has been classified as a Advance Fee Fraud/419 Scam. The sender was Dr Frank Saidu <>, although it may have been spoofed.


I know that this letter may come to you as a surprise, I got your contact address from the 
computerized search. My name is Dr Frank saidu, I am the Bill and Exchange (assistant) Manager of 
Bank of Africa Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. In my department I discovered an abandoned sum of 
eighteen million three hundred thousand United State of American dollars (10.4MILLION USA DOLLARS) 
in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer Mr Kurt Kuhle from Alexandra Egypt who 
died along with his family in Siber airline that crashed into sea at Isreal on 4th October 2001.

Since I got information about his death I have been expecting his next of kin to come over and 
claim his money because we can not release it unless somebody applies for it as the next of kin or 
relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines, but unfortunately we learnt that 
all his supposed next of kin or relation died alongside with him in the plane crash leaving nobody 
behind for the claim. It is therefore upon this discovery that I decided to make this business 
proposal to you and release the money to you as next of kin or relation to the deceased for safety 
and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and I don't want the money to go into the 
bank treasury as unclaimed bill. 

Am contacting you because our deceased customer is a foreigner and a Burkinabe can not stand as a 
next of kin to foreign customer. The banking guidelines stipulate that the fund should be 
transferred into the bank treasury after (12) years if nobody is coming for the claim. 

I have agreed that 33% of this money will be for you as foreign partner in respect to the provision 
of your account for the transfer, 2% will be set aside for expenses that might occurred during the 
business and 65% would be for me, after which I shall visit your country 

for disbursement according to the percentage as indicated.

Please I would like you to keep this transaction confidential and as a top secret as you may wish 
to know that I am a bank official. 

Yours sincerely, 
Dr Frank saidu.
