Dave Angela Dawes (scam alert)

This is an example of what I call a “mystery scam.” Someone named Dave Angela Dawes (male or female?) has a “draft” for you — that is, a bank draft or check. But who are they? What is it for?

We like to inform you that we have a draft for you here. Please contact us

We know the real answer to who they are: they are scammers, and the non-existent bank draft is a hook to try to get you to reply. If you do, they’ll try every trick in the book to get you to send them money, and then they’ll disappear.

Fredrick Ola, Atlantic Oil & Gas

This is a standard next-of-kin scam, placed in the classic “419” location: Nigeria. A foreigner has died in a plane crash, and no one has come forward to claim his bank account. If you would stand in as a representative of his family, we can split the cash. Too bad it’s all a web of lies spun by a scammer.

Dear Friend,

I am Fredrick Ola, the Human Resources Executive of Atlantic Oil & Gas Corporation. On the 15th of May 2003, Philips lob, an expatriate, who was a consultant/contractor with the Corporation, was found to have died in a plane crash along the Lekki Peninsula while on inspection tour of offshore oil facilities belonging to the Corporation.As the Welfare Director of the corporation, I contacted Philips bankers and briefed them of this development. The bankers informed me that since their client is dead, it is only the next of kin to the deceased with the proper legal documents that can compel them to pay his fixed deposit as an inherited estate. With the position of the financial outfit, I mandated the legal department of our firm to search for a relative of the deceased so that he can be presented as the next of kin to the bank.

But the only relative of the deceased, one Mr. Sam Leonard who was also the next of kin to the deceased according to his bank documents and who was last known to have lived in Latvia Eastern Europe, died as cancer patient some two months before his death. All efforts to trace other relatives of the deceased proved abortive, as all available links were exhusted. Three years after his death, with no news from any relative living anywhere and no one coming forward, we decided to seek a foreigner so that the fund can be transferred out of its present account to yours.

The account deposit contains US$12 million United States Dollars and it is important that a probable next of kin claims this fund within the next fourteen official working days. If no one comes for the claim before the stipulated time frame, the account would be closed as inactive and dormant and funds sent to the coffers of the government. This is in consonance with the stipulations of the enabling laws governing foreign inherited estates. I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin of the deceased.This would facilitate the payment of the proceeds of the said account to you. All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us seeing this through. I guarantee that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect all the parties involved from any breach of the law.

Please let me know what you intend to have as your commission if you agree to embark on this venture.

Best Regards,

Fredrick Ola.
