FROM , MR.JOSHUA MATTEW,
AUDITING DEPARTMENT
United BANK OF AFRICA,
(U.B.A.)LOME- TOGO BRANCH.

Dear  A.Umai,
 
I have a proposal for you - this however is not mandatory nor will I in any manner compel you to honor against your will, I am 50 year old, and work with a bank (one of the African leading banks in the West Coast). Here in this bank existed a dormant account for the past 8 years which belong to a American national who is now late Mrs.
Lenor and Richard Burson
Lenor and Richard Burson who died on Egypt Air Flight 990

When I discovered that there had been no deposits nor withdrawals from this account for this long period, I decided to carry out a system investigation and discovered that non of the family member nor relations of the late person is aware of this account. This is the story in a nutshell. Now I want an account overseas where the bank will transfer this funds. Thereafter, I had planned to destroy all related documents for this account. It is a careful network and for the past eleven months I have worked out everything to ensure a hitch-free operation. The amount is not so much at the moment and plus all the accumulated  interest the balance in this account stands at-(US$ 9.5 million US dollars).

Now our questions are:
1. Can you handle this project?
2. Can I give you this trust?
3. What will be your commission?

Consider this and get back at me as soon as possible. Finally, it is my humble prayer that the information as contained herein be accorded the necessary attention, urgency as well as the secrecy it deserves. I Expect your urgent response if you can handle this project. 

 
Respectfully yours,
Mr.Joshua mattew,

It's important to note that any real people or legitimate organizations mentioned in this e-mail have absolutely no connection with this scam!

None of the scammers use their real names.
They frequently take on the identity of real people to help them convince you that they are genuine.
Whatever these scammers tell you, DON'T believe a word of it!!!

This is just a small sampling of the many hundreds of scam e-mails received each day here at 419baiter.com headquarters.

There are many different types of 419 scam (examples) but they all promise you something (fortune, job with salary/commision, low-interest loan, lottery prize, cheap 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 you to willingly send them money.
