Another classic '419' style of scam - sender claims to be trying to pass on large ammounts of money. But on answering you'll be hit with requests for 'administration fees' before you see any money. These fees will keep coming until you give up, but there is no money!

1. A '419' style of scam. Scammer claims to be relative of an important person, (in this case the son of a wealthy trader) and wishes you to help 'transfer' their money for a financial reward. If you go along with them you will be hit with requests for money to cover 'administration fees', but you'll never actually see any returns, and the scammers will simply disappear!


" Dear Friend, with warm hearts and my greetings I hope this email-message meets you in good time."...

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.


The Spoof Email ...

Dear Friend,

with warm hearts and my greetings I hope this email-message meets you in good
time. It will be strange to you to receive this email from me since you do not
know me personally. However, I am sincerely seeking your assistance in this
transaction, which I propose with my free mind and as a person of integrity.

My name is Isaac Garang, the son of Samuel Garang, a Trader from Sudan, Who was
murdered during the conflict between Sudanese Government and the Rabels over
the control of our natural resources,and the introduction of so-called Islamic
law system of Sharia law by Lieutenant-General Omar Hassan al-Bashir,In our
family we are christian my father oppose the idea of the sharia and the control
of our natural resources policy of the new government the government then order
the malitia to kill my beloved father and his store was burnt down and
everthing looted.

  As led by my instinct, I decided to contact you through email, after searching
for contacts via the internet, as it is the only means I can contact anybody
since I am cutting off ties with Sudan for now. I apologize if this is not
acceptable to you.After the death of my father, our local pastor and a close
friend of my father handed us over will documents with instructions from my
father that we should leave Sudan incase anything happen to him. The will
documents has a certificate of deposit, confirming a cash deposit totaling
Fifteen million five hundred thousand united state dollars. [15.5m] Kept in
custody for us in a security company unknown to the company that the content is
money hence it was deposited as personal belongings. This money was deposited
with this Private Security Company for safety and security reasons, and was to
be used for the purchase of land, new machines and equipment for a new office
in Darfur region.

This violent and barbaric act by Sudanese Government has since led to the death
of my beloved mother and kid sister and other innocent lives,I was continually
threatened to abandon my inheritance from my father after he was murdered. I
resisted for a while, but when the danger became unbearable, I fled Sudan with
the help of my father's close friend Mr. Kennedy Burns from Australia also an
oil merchant who was leaving in Sudan with us but left with his family
following this ugly development I have tried to reach him but all to no avail.

In fact my decision to come here to seek asylum, is because the security
company from South-Africa, has a branch here, I have contacted them to move the
safe deposit from their office in Johannesburg South-Africa, which they have
since done,I need to transfer this money to an account and invest part of the
money  this is why I am seeking a genuine and reliable partner,you have to
understand that this decision taken by me is a very big and brave one, and it
entrusts my future in your hands, as a result of the safe keeping of this

If you accept to assist me, all I want you to do for me, is to assist with
arrangements to claim the deposit from the security company from their office
here in The Netherlands, as it has now been transferred from Johannesburg South-
Africa to their branch here. The company will be legally informed of you
representing me. For your assistance, I have two options for you. Firstly you
can choose to have 25% of the money for your assistance, and helping me open an
account for the money to be...
