Here's today's phony email;
RUE 25 MACCORY
My name is Mike Johnson from Sierra Leonian. I am 20 years old and a
student. Please I would like you to assist me as urgent as you can,before
they kill me.My father is a wealthy cocoa merchant.Trouble began early last
year when my father's associates began suspecting that my father is not
givingn proper accounts of all the tonnes of cocoa being cultivated by local
farmersn in some villages.
This mistrust deepens between Oct-Sept, 2003 when they discovered avery
large some of money my father deposited with a Bank here in ABIDJAN-COTE
D'IVOIRE (FORMALLY IVORY COAST in West Africa. As a result of this discovery
and the envy on the money he was poisioned by his associates.At his
hospital bed ,he revealed to me the reasons of his sickness and directed me
where to get the documents of the said deposit which he made on my name as
the next of kin,being the only child.He dvised me that in case he die, that
I should not stay in this country Sierre Leone because his associates will
equally kill me hence my mother had died five years ago of breast cancer.
He also instructed that if he dies, I should look for a foreign partner who
will help me to transfer the money out of this place (Abidjan Cote
d'Ivoire), to his account and the person will help me to invest the money in
that country. Based on this, I had to contact you bearing in mind that you
will be humane enough to protect my life. My father finally died on the 5th
of june,2004 and since then, I was out of school and went into hiding
because of my father's asociates. All the relevant documents of the
$8.000,000.(Eight Million United States Dollars) that was deposited in a
Commercial Bank by my late father, are with me now.
I will give you 15% of the total money, if you can help me transferring it
into your Account, for onward investment in your country. Please contact me
immediately with the above E-mail address and include your telephone and
Fax numbers to enable me send you all necessar documents asregards the
money before they kill me. It is a risk free transaction.
I'm waiting for your urgent reply.
