I am a deaf girl the only Daughter of my late parents Mr. and Mrs. A. Johnnic My father was a highly reputable business man(A COCOA DEALER) who operated in the economic capital of (west African Island) during his days.

I am a deaf girl. It is sad to say that he passed away mysteriously in France during one of his business trips abroad year 12th.February 2013.Though his sudden death was linked or rather suspected to have been masterminded by an uncle of his who traveled with him at that time. But God knows the truth! My mother died when I was just 6 years old, and since then my father took me so special.

Before his death on February 12, 2013 he called the secretary who accompanied him to the hospital and told him that he has the sum of US$48.500.000.(FORTY EIGHT MILLION, FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND UNITED STATES DOLLARS) left in a security company .He further told him that he deposited the money with my name,. I am a deaf girl just 25 years old and a university undergraduate and really don’t know what to do, Now I want an account overseas where I can transfer this funds and after the transaction I will come over and by your help I could settle down and plan my future.

This is because I have suffered a lot of set backs as a result of incessant political crisis here in west Africa. The death of my father actually brought sorrow to my life. I am in a sincere desire of your humble assistance in this regards, I wish to invest under your care please. Your suggestions and ideas will be highly regarded But permit me to ask these few questions:

1. Can you honestly help me as you would do to your own relation?
2. Can I completely trust you as a reliable person?
3. What percentage of the total amount in question will be good for you after the money has been transferred into your account?

Moreover, while I continue with my education I will like to invest my money into lucrative business but I need you to put me through,Please,Consider this and get back to me as soon as possible,Immediately I confirmed your willingness then I will tell you how we will go about the transaction.

Ms. Sivia Ibrahim Coulibaly (scam alert)

The message below is an example of a typical “rich orphan” scam. “Sivia Ibrahim” has inherited a fortune from her late father, and needs someone to help take care of her. Who wouldn’t want to help an orphan? Unfortunately, “Silvia” is just a scammer, probably working from a cheap Internet cafe somewhere in Africa. She (if she’s actually a she) is not rich, and not an orphan. “She” only wants to find a way to pick your pocket.

He died on Thursday 28 April 2011 following a fight with the Republican of Ivory oast (FRCI).

I am constrained to contact you because of the maltreatment which I am receiving from my step mother. She planned to take away all my late father’s treasury and properties from me since the unexpected death of my beloved Father because my mother died during child birth and I was left alone with my step mother to take care of me. Meanwhile I wanted to travel to Europe, but she hide away my traveling documents. Luckily she did not discover where I kept my father’s File which contained important documents like will and deposit certificate of my Father’s fund which bears my name as the next of kin to inherit the money in his bank account. Now I am presently staying in the Refugee Mission Camp in Burkina Faso. I am seeking for long term relationship and investment assistance. My father of blessed memory deposited the sum of US$ 11.5 Million in Bank Of Africa here in Burkina Faso with my name as the next of kin.

I have contacted the Bank to clear the deposit but the Branch Manager told me that my late father place an instruction on the deposited fund that I must present a foreign trustee who will help me in investment of the fund.However, the manager advised me to provide a trustee who will stand on my behalf for the transfer of the fund. I wanted to inform my stepmother about this deposit but I am afraid that she will not offer me anything after the release of the money because she threaten to kill me.Therefore, I decide to seek for your help in transferring the money into your bank account while I will relocate to your country and settle down with you. As you indicate your interest to help me I will give you the account number and the contact of the bank where my late beloved father deposited the money with my name as the next of kin.

Rich Orphan Scams

One of the most common types of scams messages people get via email is the “rich orphan” scam. A lonely orphan — in this case, “Miss Ann William” — has inherited a fortune and doesn’t know what to do. Won’t you help her? (And who wouldn’t want to help an orphan.) Alas, the person sending the message isn’t really a rich orphan: he (and it’s probably a he) is just a scammer trying to find a way to pick your pocket.

Safia Farkash (scam warning)

This is a classic “advance fee fraud” message with all the trimmings. A rich orphan, a father poisoned by his business associates, and a fortune that “Safia Farkash” will share with you if you’ll help transfer it to safety.

Alas, there really is no fortune, no rich orphan, and no “Safia” — there’s only a scammer feeding you a long story so he can pick your pocket.

Please let this letter not to bring confusion to you. I know that we have not met either before but hear me from the dept of your mind. It is circumstances that made to send this to you.

I will introduce myself first to you, My name is Ms. Safia Farkash, I lost my Father, my hero and my lord Mr. Nicolas Farkash years ago. He was poisioned to death by his associate in business. He formed a company by one Mr. James Anoh who poisioned him only to take benefit of the multi million venture. He was arrested immedaitely my Father died and he entered an agreement with my father’s brothers that I and the immediate younger brother of my father will represent my father’s interest in the company. After six months I was kicked out of the company because I said that we have to change the company’s lawyer who I termed was part of the elimination of my father.

I did not know that they have changed all the company’s document without my name appearing any where. I will have to let you know more detail on that but let me move to the point why I am contacting you. I have been nick named bastard by my father’s relations, They have named me all source of names even calling me outcast because my father is late, while my father was the bread winner of the family. They have pushed me out of my father’s mansion and still want to eliminate my life.

I got through the records of my father account books three weeks ago while crying and meditating, which I beleive was inspired by the spirit of God, I discovered that there is a huge sum of money he deposited in a bank, which is Ђ5808,396.00 . The note attached to the deposit agreement he made with the bank indicated that, the money was to be used to purchase machinery for the establishment of a new company of his own.

Please all I need from you is to do all you can to help me to get this money out of the bank. I have been to the bank where this money is deposit ed immediately, and confirmed the account most deligently. The bank told me that my father informed them that the money was to be remitted to his company’s costumer account abroad, which his costumer will provide to them but since then they have never heard from him nor the costumer. Now my father is late. I don’t want the bank to know that my father is late. I told them that he is ill and appointed me to represent him in his affairs.

(1).I want you to provide an account where the money will be remitted into as my father’s costumer. (2).Make arrangement for me to leave here as soon as possible.

My father did not marry to any woman, He had me as the only child while he was having an affair with the person that surpposed to be my mother when he was 28 years and the woman abandoned him and disappeared which forced him to remain single. I have no home now and my life is in danger, I don’t have any one to run into. All the members of my father family have turned their back on me because I demand for me right. They told me that I don’t belong to the family. That I should go and look for my mother, Whom I don’t know. I have made trace to know my mother without sucess. I want you to hear me from the inner most of your heart and accord me this help.
God will bless you for saving my life and future.

Best wishes,
Miss. Safia Farkash

Miss Jolle Atta

In reality, “Jolle Atta” is a scammer, perhaps working out of the Ivory Coast or maybe France (see the return email address). If you make the mistake of offering to help, you’ll discover that she needs you to send her some money for “bank fees” or “bribes” to get the money out of her account, and then once she has your money in her hands, like all other advance fee fraudsters, she will disappear and you’ll never hear from her again.
