I am Mr.Amhed Koffi Bill and exchange of the foreign remittance department, Continental Bank Benin Republic, with due respect and regard. I have decided to contact you on a business transaction that will be very beneficial to both of us at the end of the transaction.
During our investigation and auditing in this bank, my department came across a very huge sum of money belonging to a deceased customer Mr. Andreas Schranner of Munich-Germany who died on Monday, 31st  July, 2000 as you can go through the website
Since his untimely death the fund has been dormant in his account with this Bank without any claim of the fund in our custody either from his family or relation before our discovery to this development. Although personally, I kept this information’s secret within myself and partners to enable the whole plans and idea be Profitable and successful during the time of execution.
The said amount was U.S $9.8M (Nine million eight hundred United States
dollars). As it may interest you to know, I got your impressive information through my good friend who works with chamber of commerce on foreign business relations here in Benin Republic, It is him who recommended your person to me to be viable and capable to champion a business of such magnitude without any problem.
Meanwhile all the whole arrangement to put claim over this fund as the bonafide next of kin to the deceased, get the required approval and transfer this money to an overseas account has been put in place and directives. All the needed information's will be relayed to you as soon as you indicate your interest and willingness to assist us and also benefit yourself to this great business opportunity.
In fact I could have done this deal alone but because of my position in this country as a civil servant, we are not allowed to operate a foreign account and would eventually raise an eye brow on my side during the time of transfer because I work in this bank.
This is the actual reason why it will require a second party or fellow who will forward claims as the next of kin to the Bank and also present a foreign account where he will need the money to be re-transferred into, on his request as it may be after due verification and clarification by the correspondent branch of the bank where the whole money will be remitted from to your own designated bank account.
May i at this point emphasize that this transaction is 100% legitimate and risk free as i have made arrangements for a successful arrangement as an insider of the bank before contacting you. On smooth conclusion of this transaction, you will be entitled to 35% of the total sum as gratification,5% will be set aside to take care of expenses that may arise during the time of transfer, while 60% will be for me and my partners.
Please you have been advised to keep this transaction a top secret as we are still in service and intend to retire from service after we conclude this deal with you.
I will be monitoring the whole situation here in this bank until you confirm the money in your account and ask us to come down to your country for subsequent sharing of the fund according to percentages previously indicated and further investment, either in your country or any country you will advice us to invest in.
All other necessary information will be sent to you on your acceptance to champion this transaction with us.
I suggest you get back to me as soon as possible on my personal mobile phone +229 98 32 5872 stating your wish in this deal.
Yours Faithfully,
Mr Amhed Koffi






It's important to note that any real people and / or legitimate organizations whose actual names or other details are mentioned in these scam e-mails have absolutely no connection with this scam!

Scammers never use their real names.
They frequently take on the identity of real people to help them convince you that they are genuine.

This is just a small sampling of the many hundreds of advance fee fraud e-mails received each day here at 419BAITER 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 / 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.

NOTE TO DUMBASS SPAMMERS: My scam e-mail filtering system is pretty good but it isn't perfect. Occasionally a regular spam e-mail will get mistakenly published here as a 419 scam. This is inadvertent. If you are a spammer and you don't wish to have your crap mistakenly published on this website as a 419 advance fee scam, the solution is simple. Don't mail your crap to harvested e-mail addresses.
