Report Summary

Apparent Sender
Return Address

Another 419 variation. Email requests you help transfer 'family' funds from the Ivory Coast. If you go along you'll be stung for 'administration fees' but you'll never see any money!

1. If you reply to the email you'll be taken for a ride with the promise of money just round the corner, but you'll be stung for hidden cost after hidden cost and you'll never recieve the promised money. There is none.

2. A dead giveaway is the noticable lack of useful information about the sender, and no supporting references. The English is also very bad, although this is usually deliberate to make it seem like the sender is not a native English speaker.


" Dear, I am Miss Henrietta Hen,  the only child of late Mr IDOMA HEN of ivory coast. "...

If you have received this email, please remember that it is very common for these email scams to be redistributed at a later date with only slightly different content or the same but with the fake page(s) hosted by a different provider. Also, once you have received one of these hoaxes, it is also common place to receive at least another one and usually a day or two after the first, although not necessarily from the same apparent sender.
