All of these scams come from thirld world African sh**hole nations, if only these guys would use their creative minds to get themselves up and out of the mud, and instead create mutually beneficial business endeavors, such as: farming, fishing, mfg, employment, etc... they could perhaps create the basis for an economy for their countries..... but no, these are crooks with telephone scams, I have heard of these guys going to town once they get your private phone and fax #'s

This request may seen strange,but I will crave your indulgence and hope that you view it seriously. I got your contact from the internation Business Directories. I am Ali Bangura the son of Timu Bangura, who is the immediate past minister of the Federal Republic of sierra leone.Throughmy father died a natural death. He left some decuments as regard some transactions with some colleagues of his while in office .In fact the they (i.e my father and his colleagues succeeded in keeping the sum of seventy-five million US dOLLARS ($75M USD)in cash in a safe trust security in togo a neighboring west africa state . After my father death the preident Tijan kabbah government started a probe into his dealings and those of is colleagues. the government was getting close to finding some incriminating evidence against them when the renewed clashes between the R U F rebles lead by FONDAY SANKOH and my any country`s government bagan.This lead to the destruction of many government esteblishments, including the Central Bank of sierra leone and the ministry of Fianance building, where records of the probe were kept,hence no real evidence to continue the probe. now that there are no records, I have been mandated by my fathers colleagues to come to The NETHERLAND,to sort and conclude the transfer of this fund on our behalf. This assistance from you is necessary because each and everyone of us and our dealings are being closely monitored by the governmet of our country. However, be rest assured that this transaction is hitch free as my father`s colleagues and I have mapped out strategies to give this transation to a diplomatic coverage. we have ear marked 20% of this sum to you your anticipating participation 5%is for any expenditure incurred in the course of this transaction and the balance of 75%is for me and my colleagues in togo.please also note that you shall help us in investing our share of this money in a viable business in your country after this business is concluded. please, I want your urgent response to this proposal, should you interested in this business or not. Best regerds Ali Bangura. [email protected]

CONFIDENTIAL BUSINESS PROPOSAL

You may be surprised to receive this letter from me since you do not know me personally. The purpose of my introduction is that I am David Udiata, the first son of Patrick U.Udiata ,the most popular black farmer in Zimbabwe who was recently murdered in the land dispute in my country. I got your contact through network online hence decided to write you.

Before the death of my father, he had taken me to Johannesburg to deposit the sum of US8.5 million (Eight million, Five Hundred thousand United States dollars), in one of the private security company, as he foresaw the looming danger in Zimbabwe this money was deposited in a box as gem stones to avoid much demurrage from security company. This amount was meant for the purchase of new machines and chemicals for the Farms and establishment of new farms in Swaziland.

This land problem came when Zimbabwean President Mr.Robert Mugabe introduced a new Land Act Reform wholly affecting the rich white farmers and some few black farmers, and this resulted to the killing and mob action by Zimbabwean war veterans and some lunatics in the society. In fact a lot of people were killed because of this Land reform Act for which my father was one of the victims.

It is against this background that, I and my family fled Zimbabwe for fear of our lives and are currently staying in the Netherlands where we are seeking political asylum and moreso have decided to transfer my fatherís money to a more reliable foreign account. since the law of Netherlands prohibits a refugee (asylum seeker) to open any bank account or to be involved in any financial transaction throughout the territorial zone of Netherlands, As the eldest son of my father, I am saddled with the responsibility of seeking a genuine foreign account where this money could be transferred without the knowledge of my government who are bent on taking everything we have got. The South African government seems to be playing along with them.

I am faced with the dilemma of moving this amount of money out of South Africa for fear of going through the same experience in future, both countries have similar political history. As a businessman,I am seeking for a partner who I have to entrust my future and that of my family in his hands, I must let you know that this transaction is risk free. If you accept to assist me and my family, all I want you to do for me, is to make an arrangements with the security company to clear the consignment(funds) from their afiliate office here in the Netherlands as i have already given directives for the consignment to be brought to the Netherlands from South Africa.But before then all modalities will have to be put in place like change of ownership to the consignment and more importantly this money I intend to use for investment.

I have two options for you. Firstly you can choose to have certain percentage of the money for nominating your account for this transaction. Or you can go into partnership with me for the proper profitable investment of the money in your country. Whichever the option you want, feel free to notify me. I have also mapped out 5% of this money for all kinds of expenses incurred in the process of this transaction.If you do not prefer a partnership I am willing to give you 10% of the money while the remaining 85% will be for my investment in your country. Contact me with the above telephone number and E-mail address ([email protected]), while I implore you to maintain the absolute secrecy required in this transaction.

Thanks, GOD BLESS YOU

Yours Faithfully,
David Udiata

Big Money Now!! "Floating"


From:MR.BRUNO CORNALLI
3/5 RIDER HAGGARD
CLOSE, JO, BORG
SOUTH AFRICA.
Tel:874 - 762864167
Fax:874 - 762864168



(RE: TRANSFER OF ($ 126,000,000.00 USD}
ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTY SIX MILLION DOLLARS

Dear Sir,

We want to transfer to overseas account
($ 126,000,000.00 USD) One hundred and twenty six
million
United States Dollars) from a Prime Bank in Africa, I
want to ask you to quietly look for a reliable and
honest person who will be capable and fit to provide
either an existing bank account or to set up a new
Bank a/c immediately to receive this money, even an
empty a/c can serve to receive this money, as long as
you will remain honest to me till the end for this
important business trusting in you and believing in
God that you will never let me down either now or in
future.

I am MR.BRUNO CORNALLI,the Auditor General of one of
the
prime banks here South Africa, during the course of
our
auditing,I discovered a floating fund in an account
opened in the bank in 1990 and since 1993 nobody has
operated on this account again, after going through
some old files in the records I discovered that the
owner of the account died without a [heir] hence the
money is floating and if I do not remit this money
out urgently it will be forfeited for nothing.The
owner of this account is Mr.Allan P.Seaman, a
foreigner, and an industrialist, and he died, since
1993. and no other person knows about this account or
any thing concerning it,the account has no other
beneficiary and my investigation proved to me as well
that Allan P.Seaman until his death was the manager
Diamond Safari [pty].SA.

We will start the first transfer with twenty six
million [$26,000.000] upon successful transaction
without any disappoint from your side, we shall
re-apply for the payment of the remaining rest
amount to your account.

The amount involved is (USD 126 M) One hundred and
twenty six million United States Dollars only. I want
to first transfer $26,000.000 [Twenty six million
United States Dollar] from this money into a safe
foreigners account abroad before the rest, but I
don't know any foreigner, I am only contacting you
as a foreigner because this money can not be approved
to a local person here, without valid international
foreign passport, but can only be approved to any
foreigner with valid international passport or
drivers license and foreign a/c because the money is
in US dollars and the former owner of the a/c Mr.
Allan P. Seaman is a foreigner too,and the money can
only be approved into a foreign a/c.

However,we will sign a binding agreement, to bind
us together.I got your contact address from the
Girl who operates my computer,I am revealing this to
you with believe in God that you will never let me
down in this business,you are the first and the only
person that I am contacting for this business, so
please reply urgently so that I will inform you the
next step to take urgently.Send also your private
telephone and fax number including the full details of
the account to be used for the deposit.

I want us to meet face to face to build confidence
and to sign a binding agreement that will bind us
together before transferring the money to any
account of your choice where the fund will be safe.
Before we fly to your country for withdrawal, sharing
and investments.

I need your full co-operation to make this work
fine,Because the management is ready to approve
this payment to any foreigner who has correct
information of this account,which I will give to you,
upon your positive response and once I am convinced
that you are capable and will meet up with
instruction of a key bank official who is deeply
involved with me in this business. I need your strong
assurance that you will never, never let me down.

With my influence and the position of the bank
official we can transfer this money to any foreigner's
reliable account which you can provide with assurance
that this money will be intact pending our physical
arrival in your country for sharing. The bank official
will destroy all documents of transaction immediately
we receive this money leaving no trace to any place
and to build confidence you can come immediately to
discuss with me face to face after which I will make
this remittance in your presence and three of us
will fly to your country at least two days ahead of
the
money going into the account.I will apply for annual
leave to get visa immediately I hear from you that you
are ready to act and receive this fund in your
account.I will use my position and influence to
obtain all legal approvals for onward transfer of
this money to your account with appropriate clearance
from the relevant ministries and foreign exchange
departments.

At the conclusion of this business, you will be given
35% of the total amount,60% will be for me,while
5% will be for expenses both parties might have
incurred during the process of transferring.

I look forward to your earliest reply through my
email address.


Yours truly,
BRUNO CORNALLI
