Advance Fee Fraud 419 scam: another example citing Ivory Coast

This is a classic example of a 419 advance fee fraud email.What makes this interesting is the attempt to use flowery language, but coming out to be funny. Things like "humblelity". Another interesting aspect is the number of spelling errors ("rexpert", "surprice", ...etc).

Dearest one,

I have a proposal for you-this however is not mandatory nor will I in any manner compel you to honour against your will. I am Julia George, 24years old and the only daughter of my late parents Mr.and Mrs George My father was a highly reputable busnness magnet-(a cocoa merchant) who operated in the capital of Ivory coast during his days.

It is sad to say that he passed away mysteriously in France during one of his business trips abroad year 12th.Febuary 2002.Though his sudden death was linked or rather suspected to have been masterminded by an uncle of his who travelled with him at that time. But God knows the truth!
My mother died when I was just 4 years old,and since then my father took me so special. Before his death on Febuary 12 2002 he called the secretary who accompanied him to the hospital and told him that he had a sum of 7.500,000 US DOLLARS (seven. five) MILLION USA DOLLARS)kept in a security company in (AFRICA).

He also said that the security company does not know the content of the safe Box.He decleared it as family treasure and used my name to Deposit the Box as his first daugther for next of kin. He also explained to him that it was because of this wealth that he was poisoned by his business assocaites, That I should seek for a foreign partner in a country of my choice where I will transfer this money to and use it for investment purposes.

I want you to assist me in clearing this box from the security company and then transfering the fund inside the box into your account overseas as a beneficiary of the fund, and also use it for an investment purpose.
I am just 24years old and a university undergraduate and really I don't know what to do.

Now I want an account overseas where I can transfer this funds. This is because I have suffered a lot of set backs as a result of incessant political crisis here in Ivory coast.The death of my father actually brought sorrow to my life.
Dearest one,I am in a sincere desire of your humble assistance in this regards Your suggestions and ideas will be highly regarded.
Now permit me to ask these few questions:-

1. Can you honestly help me as your daughter?
2. Can I completely trust you?
3. What percentage of the total amount in question
will be good for you after the money is in your

Please,Consider this and get back to me as soon as possible

Thank you so much.

All should beware - especially during this time of economic hardship that would allow us to be gullible. The following email has the same profile and tone of the e-mail posted on 10-07-06 from Joy Koma. Please note the following:

Dear in the Lord,

I got your message and well understood. Since you can not release your identity due to some reason. Next step now is you to contact the security company. Introduce yourself to them as my late husband foreign partner and the real beneficiary of the consignment. and also apply for them to tell you how the consignment should shift to your destination through diplomatic courier service. I have already submitted your name and contact to the company management but they need to hear from you.

Note; You will not allow the security company or the diplomat to notice that the real content of the consignment is money because the consignment was deposited as family valuables, So always refer the content of the consignment as family valuables.

send this below message to the security company management or contact them on telephone as I drafted on this below message and do not fail to always update me in anything you are discussing with them. If they ask you any question just refer it to me here so that we will clarify them. You will see the documents in the attachment of the deposit,together with my picture and passport, please go through it and keep it confidential for security reason.

Thanks and may the almighty God be with you and your family.

Yours sister,
Mrs. Mary Kamara .

I made arrangement with two peace keeping force to help me to move out of the country, however i moved out of SUDAN successfully, to Abidjan Côte d’Ivoire where I am now.I have gone and confirm at the security company and the director told me that the box is still in the their custody.

Now because of the recent political crisis and blood shed in this country cote d ivoire so i dont want to experience it again so I wish to transfer these box containing the fund in the security company abroad and enter into a business venture as the country (Côte d’Ivoire)is no longer a peaceful country as it use to be before,

I received an email like

I am sincerely very much delighted for your prompt response and note of your willingness and honest and for mutual consideration to help me out, what I really need from you is your help if you can help me to receive my consignment in your country and for me to join you as soon as you receive the consignment box so that I can leave a good life in your care.

Dear I can understand you is truth we don't know each other but will can start from one place and ending in getting marriage to each other in future, I want you to have it in your mind since you have promise that you will help me receive my consignment box in your country am ready to be the mother of your children and live the rest of my life in your care and be your wife for future,and also I want you to know that age is nothing about love and am ready to leave with your family and follow what ever you told me to do.

I also thank Almighty God for directing me to you I am not testing your faithfulness all I told you is the real picture of my life, I believe you have the experience to invest the fund on lucrative business in your country and I want you to know that it is the spirit of God that led me to you. Dear friend your mail give me hope of tomorrow that soon everything will be ok for me.

Now as you can see that I am still tender in age though an adult by law but still lack total experience to handle an issue of this magnitude; hence my search for a sincere and God fearing person to trust and I found you I don’t want to look again for someone else I really wants you to help me I have put everything in God hand.

First and foremost, I will want to remind you that the story as contained in my previous mail is just the exact picture of my present situation. The consignment in question is my legitimate and legal inheritance.

The incessant political instability in this country in these recent times has clouded me with doubts as what really becomes my fate in view of the consignment in question. I honestly need your sincere co-operation to first get the consignment out of this place. I promise to hand over to you all the necessary and relevant documents relating to the consignment in the security company here, to facilitate the smooth process. This of course may include the Certificate of Deposit issued to my late father at the time he deposited the consignment box.

In case my present mail does not give you the complete explanation on the object in question-please feel free to indicate it in your next mail and I also promise to give you the contact address of the security company here in Abidjan when next I hear from you. I am in the hope that the above will surface for you to continue to act on my behalf in this regards. I am anxiously waiting to hear further from you.

And I will love to be with you very soon to continue my education, if you can arrange for my coming to meet you in your country or immediately the consignment has been delivered to you your country to start a new life over there in your country, I have discussed with the Chief Security Officer of the Security Service before when I went to confirm the Existence of the Box and he confirmed to me that, they can deliver the Consignment Box to any country of my choice through their Diplomatic Means, as soon as I come up with their "Requirements".

I will attached the copy of the document that the security company issued for my late father when he deposited the consignment box in the security company after I read back from you in your next mail.

Waiting to hear from you so that I can forward to you all the necessary information and kindly send me your private number in your next mail for more communication.

Cheers and remain blessed.

Your's in love
Sarah Malik.
