Mr. Jamiu Yusuf, in Ghana has US$12.6 million from Dr. George Brumley

The e-mail here is just one type of the thousands of scam e-mail variants sent out each day by 419 scammers. If you've received an e-mail even remotely similar to the one on this page or if you have arrived at this page via an internet search resulting from an e-mail that you received, YOU HAVE RECEIVED A SCAM E-MAIL!

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.

 

This is an internet scam! Do NOT send these scammers money for any reason.

My Good Friend

Compliments of the day,
 
 I want to solicit your strict confidence in this transaction and I pray that my decision to contact you will be given a genuine approval considering the fact that we have not known each other before now. My good friend, I feel quite safe dealing with you in this important transaction. However, this correspondence is unofficial and private, and it should be treated as such. I decided to reach you via e-mail because presently i am in desperate need of a trust worthy foreigner for this proposal. Although this medium is not proper.
 I am Mr Jamiu Yusuf, Assistant General Manager, Guaranty Trust Bank (Ghana .) Ltd. the account office to one of my bank's high profile foreign customer Dr. George Brumley , a citizen of Atlanta , United States of America , and a contractor with Anglo Gold. Ashanti [Ghana ,]Limited. Dr. George Brumley made a numbered time (fixed) deposit, in my bank, upon the maturity of his deposit, my bank sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but got no reply. After three months, a reminder was sent and we finally discovered that he was on aboard a charter plane that crashed on Mount Kenya with his entire family (his supposed next of kin) leaving nobody behind to claim his deposit with our bank. You can read more about the crash on visiting this site; http://www.cnn.com/2003/WORLD/africa/07/20/kenya.crash/index.html
 
 since the death of this our customer Dr. George Brumley, I have kept a close monitoring of the deposit records of this account, nobody has come forward to claim the money in this A/C as next of kin. After further inquest, it was discovered that the total amount in the account is US$12.6 million. 
 
As it stands now; the funds can only be released to a foreigner because there is nobody in position to produce the needed information to claim this fund other than my very self-considering my position in the bank and as a former account office to Dr. George Brumley. 
 Based on the fact that Dr. George Brumley 's family perished in the same flight accident, leaving no one to put claim of the deposit as the next of kin, so I am seeking for your co-operation to present you as the next of kin to late Dr. George Brumley, and arrange for the release of the funds to your honor for our mutual benefit. If there is more delay in moving this money out, In accord with the federal banking laws and constitution of my country Ghana, this money will revert to the ownership of the government and will be pushed to the Republic Treasury of the Bank of Ghana if nobody applies as the next of kin to claim the fund.

 Consequently, it is upon this discovery that I now decided to make this business proposal to you and release the money to your account as the next of kin or business associate to Dr. George Brumley. I and my colleague in the foreign operation/Funds Transfer department of our Bank has resolved to present you as a foreigner to stand in, as the next of kin to this gentleman, so that the proceeds of this account can be paid to you, for us to share. Upon acceptance of this proposal, i shall give you detailed information on how this deal would be carried out. We shall employ the services of an advocate for the drafting of the letter of probate in your favor, and to obtain all other relevant papers in your name for the necessary documentation for payment endorsement in my bank.
 
 I and my colleague are willing to share this money with you in the ratio of Sixty Five percent for me and my colleague, Thirty percent for you and five percent will be set aside in case of any arising contingencies or expenses during the course of this transaction. Please be informed that your extreme discretion is required. If this interests you, please reply me and indicate your full name, address date of birth, your personal contact telephone and fax numbers respectively.

 Upon receipt of your response, I will brief you on the next step
 
 I will be looking forward to your urgent reply.
 
Best regards.

Mr Jamiu Yusuf
