094 - How to REALLY get rich

Unless you've been hiding under a bushel, you're sure to have received a version of the following spam message. This is the most widely spread spam message. The really funny part is how many stupid people actually believe this and end up handing over their bank account numbers. The average amount lost by these dimwits is about $5,000, according to a recent government report. (By the way, this is shown as I received it, lack of formatting and all.)

I am Mr VICTOR COFI.the director in charge of auditing and accounting section of NATIONALBANK LOME-TOGO, in west Africa with due respect and regards. I have decided to contact you on a business transaction that will be very beneficial to both of us at the end of the transaction .During our investigation and auditing in this bank department came across a very huge sum of money belonging to a deceased person who died on November 1997 in a plane crash and the claim of the fund has been dormant in his account with this bank without any claim of the fund in our custody either from or relation before our discovery to thisdevelopment. Although personally, I kept this information secret within myself and partner to enable the whole plans and idea be profitable and successful during the time of execution. The said amount is USD$ 15m (fifteen million united states dollars). Meanwhile all the whole arrangement to put claim over this fund as the bonafide next of kin to the deceased, get the required approval and transfer this money to a foreign has been put place and directives and needed information will be relayed to you as you indicate your interest and willingness to assist us and also benefit your self to this great business opportunity. In fact I could have done this countrary a civil servant, we are not allowed to operate a foreign account and would eventually raise an eye brown on my side the time of transfer because I work in this bank. This is the actual reason why it will require a second party or fellow who will forward claim as the next of kin with affidavit of Oath to the bank and also present a foreign account where he will need the money to be re-transferred into on his request as it may be after due verification and clarification bydesignation bank account. I will not fail to inform you that this transaction is 100% risk free. On smooth conclusion of This transaction total, you will be entitled to 30% of the total sum as gratification, while 10% will be aside to take care of expenses that may arise during the time of transfer and also telephone bills, while 60% will be for me and my partners. Please, you have advised to keep top secret as we are still in service and intend to retire from service after we conclude this deal with you. You will be monitoring the whole situation here in this bank until you confirm the money in your account. And ask us to come to your country for subsequent sharing of the fund according to percentages previously indicated and further investment, either in your country or any country you advise us to invest in All other necessary information will be sent to you when I hear from you I suggest your get back me as soon as possible statingyour wish in this deal. Mr VICTOR COFI.
