Hello  Godfrey,
My name is Mr. Koffi Williams a Banker and accountant with our bank here in Abidjan. I am the personal accounts manager to Engr.Jonathan Godfrey, a National of your country, who used to work with an oil servicing company here in Cote Ivoire.
My client, his wife, and their three children were involved in the ill fated Kenya Airways crash in the coasts of Abidjan in January 2000 in which all passengers on board died. Since then I have made several inquiries to your embassy to locate any of my clients extended relatives but has been unsuccessful.
After several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to trace his last name over the internet,to see if I could locate any member of his family hence I contacted you.  Of particular interest is this huge deposit with our bank here in,where the deceased  has an account valued at about ($16.5, million US dollars).They have issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or the bank will declare the account unservisable and thereby send the funds to the bank treasury.
Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over last 2 years now, I will seek your consent to present you  as the next of kin of the deceased since you have the same last names, so that the proceeds of this account valued at ($16.5,million US dollars) can be paid to you and then you and I can share the money.
All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us see this deal through.I guarantee that this will be executed under all legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. In your reply mail, I want you to give me your full names, address, date of birth, telephone and fax numbers. If you can handle this with me, reach me now urgently with your requested information and you can call me at (+22505871189)for more discussion or contact through our private email address ( for more details.
Thanking you for your anticipated cooperation
Koffi Williams

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.
