I am Engineer Steve Kwame, a Director of the Contracts Award and
review Department with the Ghana Ministry of energy (M.O.E). I am
contacting you for an urgent and important business dealing which
will be beneficial to both of us, and with out any risks as
regards this would be business dealing, I don't know,
if I can confide in you, though we may be in two different countries
apart, but that is what I actually needed in a partner, someone
from a distant place or country, please do revert back to me if
you think we can work for the good of both of us in good faith,
as that will enable me to let you into the project proper. Please
do send to me your telephone number in your next email, to enable us
talk in confidence about this proposal. Thanks. Eng.Steve Kwame,

They frequently take on the identity of real people to help make themselves and their scam appear legitimate.
This is just a small sampling of the
many hundreds of advance fee fraud e-mails received each day here at
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 /
low-interest loan, lottery prize,
bargain 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.
If you receive one of these scam mails, simply delete it as you would any other spam mails.
