Nigerian 419 Advance-Fee Scams

They poured into our inboxes!  Below is a sampling of these Nigerian 419 advance-fee scams we saw throughout the month of October and early November, 2018.  Take particular notice of email addresses that contain 2-letter country codes like “.jp” for Japan or “.vn” for Vietnam.  Also, in every example below, you are asked to reply to a DIFFERENT email address than the email that contacted people.  They are all in their original glory.  We only adjusted the @ symbol in the email addresses so browsers won’t show them as clickable links.

Enjoy! And Be Blessed! 😉

Urgent Letter From Hospital(9)

My dear beloved one, this is Ms Vivian Brown from Estonia writing from hospital here in Ivory Coast; therefore this email is very urgent. I want you to know that I’m dying here in this hospital right now and i don’t know if i will see some days to come according to my Doctor. I was informed by my Doctor that i got poisoned and it affected my liver and i can only live for some days. The reason why i contacted you today is because i know that my step Mother wanted to kill me and take my inheritance from my late Father. I have a little adopted child named Andrew C. Brown that i adopted in this Country when my late Father was alive and $3.5 million Dollars i inherited from my late father. My step mother and her children they are after Andrew right now because they found out that Andrew was aware of the poison, and because i handed the documents of the fund over to him the day my step Mother poisoned my food, for that reason they do not want Andrew to expose them, so they are doing everything possible to kill him.

My Beloved, please i want you to help him out of this country with the money, he is the only one taking good care of me here in this hospital right now and even this email you are reading now he is the one helping me out. I want you to get back to me so that he will give you the documents of the fund and he will direct you to a well known lawyer that i have appointed, the lawyer will assist you to change the documents of the fund to your name to enable the bank transfer the money to you.

This is the favor i need when you have gotten the fund:

(1) Keep 30% of the money for Andrew until he finish his studies to become a man as he has been there for me as my lovely Son and i promised to support him in life to become a medical Doctor because he always desire for it with the scholarship he has won so far. I want you to take him along with you to your country and establish him as your son.
(2) Give 20% of the money to handicap people and charity organization. The remaining 50% should be yours for your help to Andrew.
Note; This should be a code between you and my son Andrew on this transaction “Hospital” any mail from him, the Lawyer he will direct you to, without this code “Hospital” is not from the Andrew, the Lawyer or myself as i don’t know what will happen to me in the next few hours.

Finally, write me back so that Andrew will send you his pictures to be sure of whom you are dealing with. Andrew is 14 years of age now, therefore guide him. And if i don’t hear from you i will look for another person or any organization.
May Almighty God bless you and use you to accomplish my wish. Pray for me always.

Ms Vivian Brown

Hello Dear Beloved,
I am Mrs. Grace Yaogo Kamboulé.

Please my dear, do not feel embarrassed by my mail to you. I am the wife of late Dr. Yaogo Kamboulé a prominent business man and pro-human right activist here in Republic of Burkina Faso before his untimely death in 2011.

during my late husband’s lifetime, he deposited the sum of EURO 5 million euros (Five Million Euros) with the central bank here and informed me concerning it. We intended to use this fund for charity and investment purposes for the up keeping/ future of our son, Jean Kamboulé who is currently 16 years of age.

I returned back home with my son Jean from France because of my ill health situation to secure his future before is too late.

I am contacting you because I want you to help me in securing and investing this money for the future and education of Jean Kamboulé (my son ) since I am incapable of doing so due to my deteriorating/ bad health situation occasioned by cancer which had lead to my doctors informing me that I might not last for more months. Presently, my situation has worsened that I am unable to eat with my mouth.

I do not intend to leave this fund as my son is too young to handle it as desired by my late husband, also, my late husband`s relatives are not worthy to be entrusted with this fund due to their wickedness towards my son and I since my condition deepened.

I have discussed this issue with my son and have resolved to make available to you 15% of the total money for your efforts and labour. I shall be expecting your reply- mail so that I will give you the contact of this bank and all the relevant documents and information to enable the concerned bank release this fund to you without difficulty.

I will equally give you a power of attorney and a letter of confirmation so that you will not have any difficulty while undertaking this noble responsibility.

Thank you for your time.

subject: Greetings Beloved
Dear beloved,

Please read this slowly and carefully, as it may be one of the most important emails you ever get, I hope this mail meets you in good time, my name is Mrs. victoria Aimie, I am married to Late Mr. Nathan Aimie,from Stockholm Sweden, He used to work with Shell Petroleum Development Company London and was also a seasoned contractor in the South East Asia Region, He died during Tsunami disaster in Phuket Thailand on 26th December 2004.

As you read this, I don’t want you to feel sorry for me, because, I Believe Everyone will die someday. I have been diagnosed with Esophagus cancer and My Doctor told me that I would not last long due to my complicated health issues.

I have decided to give arms to charity organizations /churches/Mosque /motherless babies/less privileged/widows, as I want this to be one of the last good deeds I and my late husband did on earth. So far, I have distributed money to some charity organizations in the Algeria and Bangladesh. Now that my health has deteriorated so badly, I cannot do this myself anymore.

I once asked members of my family to close one of my accounts and distribute the money which I have there to charity organization in Bulgaria,Romania and Pakistan, they refused and kept the money to themselves.Hence, I do not trust them anymore, as they seem not to be contended with what I and my late husband have left for them.

Before the death of my husband he made a deposit of $5.5 Million dollars which we intended to use for a hotel business in Phuket, which no one knows of this huge cash Deposit, since after his death, I have been battling with Cancer and according to my doctor the stage is uncontrollable now and I have few months to live.

I want to sow this fund from my deceased husband’s enterprise as a seed in your care to the glory of God since we have no Child to inherit them. I will want you to dispatch it to charity organizations if only you will be sincere, I have learn that wealth acquisition without God is vanity upon vanity.

Any delay in your reply will give me room in sourcing for another individual for this same purpose.If you are not interested,kindly pardon me for bothering you.

Please kindly get back to me through my Email :

subject: Your Fund Payment, Please Comply Immediately.!


I’m Mr. Ethan Winchester, director cash processing unit, Sainsbury’s Bank plc United Kingdom the only bank appointed by the All Asian Union, and European Union E.U. Members lead by President Jean-Claude Juncker. To pay all outstanding beneficiaries of compensation / Inheritance / Next-of-Kin / Lottery Funds of any kind.

Because of the frauds going on around the world where some innocent beneficiaries were asked to pay in advance before receiving their money owed to them. The above All Asian Union, and European Union E.U, held a meeting in London and resolve to pay all beneficiaries in cash through means of diplomatic courier service. The information on our desk, made it clear that you have not received your fund payment yet. We received your unpaid files from international monetary fund (I.M.F.) as one of the outstanding beneficiaries of Two million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars ( US$ 2,500,000.00) only.

Take note; Due to global economic crisis Five Thousand United State Dollars (US$ 5,000) have been mapped out for all expenses in taxes and other documents that matters. Therefore, I want you to bear it in mind that your total fund will no more be up to Two million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars ( US$ 2,500,000.00) but Two Million four hundred and ninety five thousand united state dollars (US$ 2,495,000.00) only.

If anybody tells you that he is paying you in bank draft or telegraphic money transfer both western union and money gram transfer, do not listen to him or her, because due to a lot of frauds on the internet, non international bank honors remittance instruction anymore on huge amount transfer, this is why we settled to pay in cash through courier delivery system.

You may have paid the fraudsters who have been deceiving you, telling you that they are going to send this money to you. My dear; as a senior banker, controlling this cash payment now, I advise you not to waste your money by paying anybody in advance again, and if you just follow my instruction, you will receive your money in three working days without any delay.

Your fund will now be packaged in box and take to the diplomatic courier service for immediate shipment, I will also send the picture of the box by attachment to you to see how the money is packed, and I will send you more mails to give you more information for you to confirm the genuineness of this transaction.

Therefore, do get back to me immediately for quick delivery, because time is not in our side. All the documents will be sent to you along with your fund payment o delivery day. Finally you have to assured us that you have stopped dealing with those fake officers.

Am waiting to hear from you as soon as possible.

Good day my dear,

I am satisfied to send you this mail now,though we do not know each other but i believe after some change of ideas and massages we will get to know each other very well. I’m Mrs.Sandra Anita Christopher by name the wife of late Engineer George Christopher a politician and businessman who was murdered by assassins in my country South Sudan in East Africa.

After I lost my husband and one of my Daughter by the gunmen because of the Political Compromise and Post-Conflict in South Sudan my country then kidnapped my last born after the funeral of my dear husband with my Daughter and has not been found even until today. I discovered that my life is in danger in that country, then I have to fly the country with the help of red cross association in Republic of Benin in West Africa,situated east of Togo and west of Nigeria with my remaining kid.

Before the death of my late husband,he deposited a sum of (3,700,000.00 Dollars) Three Million, Seven hundred Thousand Dollars in UBA BANK OF AFRICAN PLC,which he used my name as the next of kin. meanwhile if you can accepted to stand as my trustee to receive this money for proper investment in your country or any other place, then I will give you all the complete information that may be required.

This is because after my explanations to the bank about my living status now, they advised me to look for mature and trusted foreign partner who will help me to conduct and transfer the money to his or her position due to the policy of where am living as a refugee that is prohibited for me to have direct claim over the deposit.

In the meantime, I pledge to give you 40% of the total fund for your assistance, while 60% will belong to me and my remaining child for a bright future for her. I hope and wait for a positive reply from you as soon as possible.thank you i am waiting for your respond.

Dear  friend.
I got your details after an extensive on-line search Via (Network Power Charitable Trust) for a reliable person, I’m Mrs.Suzan Boni, a 57years old dying woman who was diagnosed for cancer about 4 years ago, I have decided to donate my fund ($1,000,000.00) to you for charitable goals.

I want you to use this fund to help the orphanage homes, poor, sick ones in the hospital, widows, help women with cancer, help in the church of the God ,since i do not have any child to inherit the fund.
I took this decision because I can’t take this money to the grave, I don’t have any child that will inherit this money, again I and my late husband vowed to use our last wealth to help the less privileged since we have no child, our relatives are wicked and selfish, they tried to frustrate our Christian life and our marriage.

Beloved I don’t need telephone communication because of my health condition please reply me through my Email for me to give you other details.Proverbs19:17: He who gives to the poor lends to the lord and the lord will reward such a person for his good work. Beloved let us join hands together to help our Fellow brothers and Sister who are poor, sick and Homeless, so that blessings will be ours portion while Glory goes to the lord our creator. I am waiting for your soonest response. Thanks and God Bless You Yours Loving Sister in Christ.
