Foreign Business partner to the original beneficiary of the fund. The
beneficiary is a foreigner and a multi company holder who died in a jet
crash with his family years ago, he deposited the fund in our bank for
his business expansion in Africa unfortunately he met this sudden
death. The worst thing that happened was the wife who suppose to be the

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