My name is Miss. Pamela H Swan I am a dying woman who had decided to
donate what I have to a reliable individual who will act as I will
instruct here. I am 63 years old and was diagnosed for cancer about 2
years ago. I have been touched by God to donate from what I have
inherited from my late father to you for the good work of God, rather
than allow my uncle to use my father’s hard earned funds ungodly.
I will be undergoing an operation in London , and I pray that I survive
the operation. I have decided to WILL the sum of $17,250,000.00USD
(Seventeen Million Two Hundred and Fifty Thousand United States Dollars
Only) deposited in a secured bank in West Africa, to you for the good
work of the lord, the orphanage, the needy and to help the motherless.
Presently, I have informed my Doctor, Dr. John Kelvin's about my
decision in WILLING this fund to a reliable individual, you are to get
back to me immediately if you are interested in carrying out this task,
so that I will instruct you on how to get in contact with my doctor and
my account officer.
Lastly, I know I have never meet you, but in other to fulfill this
which borders me most and I got your email address through my personal
search on the Internet, my mind tells me to inform you about this, and
I hope you act sincerely, please get back to me immediately.
God bless you.

This is just a small sampling of the
many hundreds of advance fee fraud e-mails received each day here at
headquarters. It is 100% pure B.S. Purity Guaranteed!
There are many different types of 419 scam (examples)
but they all promise you something (fortune, job with salary /
low-interest loan, lottery prize,
bargain gold dust / diamonds,
work visa, etc.) in return
for a small 'fee' or some kind of remittance. Of course, there is no
fortune, no job, no loan, no prize to be had. It's just a ploy to get
willingly send them money.
