$8.2 Million US Dollars which he deposited in a financial institution
here in Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire in West Africa, I have decided to offer
you $1.2m for your assistance with enabling conditions for the release
of the fund which are as follows:

release of the fund,There must be evidence of investment intentions especially outside West Africa,

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.
