Good day,

With my pains, I need your sincerity to execute this transaction with you
in utmost good faith and trust. I am Barrister Frank Williams, a Solicitor
-At - Law and the personal attorney to a citizen of your country,who worked
with Shell Development Company   Niger Delta State, Nigeria.

I am contacting you due to the urgency this demands. My client died in a
militant hostage with the entire family of three (3) because of his
disobedience as an expatraite to obey with their demands in Bonny Crude oil
extractions. He had a very huge deposit in a bank here and no one to make
claims because the next of kin is needed to make the claims.

I seek your permission to have you stand as the "next of kin" to him.I
will give you details on your notice of interest to assist.

I remain in contact,

Sincerely yours,

Frank Williams Esq.

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.
