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

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