I have received this E-mail.... is too funny to avoid to share with you.
How can they think we are so morons and stupids? :-)
FROM MR.BHARAT KHUMA
AUDITING AND ACCOUNTING UNIT.
FOREIGN REMITTANCE DEPT.
UNION TOGOLAISE DU BANQUE
I am MR. BHARAT KHUMA, the Director in charge of
Auditing and Accounting section of Union Togolaise du
Banque Lome-Togo in West Africa with due respect and
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, my
Department came across a very huge sum of money
belonging to Mr.James Scoth Chief Engineer of petro
Chemical Industry who died on november 16th 1997 in an
Auto crash in Ghana-Lome Express Road and his account has been dormant with this Bank without any claim of the fund in our custody either from his family or relation as in his wills in article 9.1 before our discovery to this development.
Although personally, I keep this information secret
within myself and partners to enable the whole plans
and idea be Profitable and successful during the time
of execution. The said amount was US$14M (fourteen
million united states dollars).
As it may interest you to know,I got your name from
an America business firm and I know that you will be
capable to champion a business of such magnitude without any problem 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 account has been put in place and directives and needed information will be relayed to you as soon as
you indicate your interest and willingness to assist
us and also benefit your self to this great business
In fact I could have done this deal alone but because
of my position in this country as a civil servant, we
are not allowed to operate a foreign account and would
eventually raise an eye brow on my side during 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 claims as the next of kin with
affidavit of trust 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 by the
correspondent branch of the bank where the whole money
will be remitted from to your own designated bank
I will not fail to inform you that this transaction is
100% risk free.
On smooth conclusion of this transaction, you will be
entitled to 30% of the total sum as gratification,
while 10% will be set 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
Please, you have been adviced to keep top secret as we
are still in service and intend to retire from service
after we conclude this deal with you.
I will be monitoring the whole situation here in this
bank until you confirm the money in your account. and
ask us to come down 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 advice us to invest
All other necessary information will be sent to you
when I hear from you.
MR. BHARAT KHUMA
