FROM : Master Kone Ibrahim



Dearest one,

With regard to your reputation and co-worshipper of

God who will not disappoint me nor deny me in faith, I

am directing this letter of assistance to you. I am

Master Kone Ibrahim the son of Mr Bamba Ibrahim from

Republic of Zimbabwe really in dear need to get

somebody who will safe guard the interest of me and my

treasure. Briefly, my father Mr Bamba Ibrahim was a

Gold and Cocoa merchant who based in Abidjan Côte

d’Ivoire and had a branch office in Accra Ghana.

My father was a wealthy Gold/Cocoa merchant who has

business in many countries in Europe, America and

Asian countries. According to my father, my own mother

died when I was about six years of age which means

that I did not even know my mother very well.

The story is that my father Mr Bamba was poisoned to

death by his business associates about some months

ago, and he died in a private hospital here in

Abidjan. But when he was about to die, he called me

beside his sick bed and told me that he deposited the

sum of Ten Million seven hundred thousand United State

Dollars (USD10.7M) in a confidence account as bond in

a bank here in Abidjan Côte d’Ivoire, this money was

kept for me his only son. Right now I am here in

Abidjan, the commercial city of Cote d’Ivoire in West


My problem now is that since my father has been

poisoned to death by his business associates, I don’t

even trust any other person here again and to this

effect, I do contact you. Right now, I want you to

help me in the following ways:

1) I want you to help me extract this money from the

bank here and then provide a bank account where this

amount here (USD10.7M) can be transferred.

2) You are going to be the manager of this fund and

also my personal guardian until I finished my studies

as I’m just 24 years old.

3) You are going to procure admission for me to

continue my studies in one of the known university in

your country.

4) That you must prepare immediately to make a working

visit to Abidjan here so that me and you can see each

other and we can then do the transfer of the fund to

your account at the same time and I will go back with

you to your country for the fund investment.

5) You are going to receive 20% of the total sum for

your assitance to me.

I appreciate if you consider my condition and help me,

and I am willing to proceed with you as soon as I have

your response. Please try to contact me through my

email address




Waiting for your immediate response.

Thanks for your understanding

Master Kone Ibrahim

  1. Hi,

    What they want to do is either get your bank account number or other personal information so they can steal your money, or do some kind of credit fraud. These emails are quite common and unfortunately many people have fallen for them in the past. Just ignore these criminals.


  2. somebody here must know how to set up a fake account to send to some of the people who write these emails. what would happen then? or open an account for a bum.

  3. i got the same one…but different person…i think they’ll steal money from you if you give them your account number.

    anyway, who would be so stupid enough to fall for this trick..just be careful guys..

    Dearest One,

    Permit me to inform you of our desire of going into business relationship with you. I am quite aware that my message will come to you as a surprise because it is indeed very strange for someone you have not met before to contact you in this regard.

    I am Ms Anita Bamba the only daughter of late Chief.and Mrs. Dikko Bamba. My father was a very wealthy Coccoa merchant in Abidjan, the economic capital of Ivory coast, my father was poisoned to death by his business associates on one of their outings on a business trip .

    My mother died when I was a baby and since then my father took me so special. Before the death of my father on October 2004 in a private hospital here in Abidjan he secretly called me on his bed side and told me that he has the sum of (Seven million,five hundred thousand United State Dollars).USD($7.500,000,00) left in fixed / suspense account in one of the prime bank here in Abidjan,that he used my name as his only daughter for the next of Kin in depositing of the fund. He also explained to me that it was because of this wealth that he was poisoned by his business associates. That I should seek for a foreign partner in a country of my choice where I will transfer this money and use it for investment purpose such as real estate or hotel management.

    Dear, I am honourably seeking your assistance in the following ways:

    (1) To provide a bank account into which this money would be transferred to.

    (2) To serve as a guardian of this fund since I am only 22years.

    (3) To make arrangement for me to come over to your country to further my education and also to secure a resident permit in your country.

    Moreover,Dear I am willing to offer you 15% of the total sum as compensation for your effort/ input after the successful transfer of this fund into your nominated account overseas.

    Furthermore,Dear please indicate your options towards assisting me as I believe that this transaction would be conclude within seven (7) days you signify your interest to assist me.

    Anticipating to hear from you urgently.

    Thanks and God bless.

    Yours Sincerely,

    Not only is this a ridiculous scam; it is something that possibly domestic authorities should become aware of :)

    My Grandfather used to say, “if it seems to good to be true, it usually is”!

    Be good, stay healthy, and remember … Money can’t buy you love!

  8. hello everybody, well i got a messege like what you received. you know what my hear stood up what i read in your site, i cant sent you what i received but its the same and i did give them my account number but theres no money on it. its convencing because they claim your same religion. i just email them now that i cant give them a SPA (special power of attorney) why do i send you! i told them if you want me to help you ok just transfer the fund.i’ve learn a lesson not to trust and believed so easly. thanks

  9. Yep, I got the same one as Ed…but just for a little bit of logic ms Anita Bamber says “To make arrangement for me to come over to your country to further my education and also to secure a resident permit in your country” with that sort of money she could go to bloody harvard, notice it says dady has put it in her name, and if she put 7.5 million in my bank, dunno about taking 15%, I might buy her a banana boat to fcukoff home in…, this is a credit scam, they will take the bank details, ask you to sign power of attorney over to them, then they milk it for all the credit they can apply for IN YOUR NAME as they may as well be joint account holders, having power of attorney, leaving you to pay it off or not if you wat blacklisted…so sign sweet f a………..

  10. The thing is I’ve heard people have actually gone over to meet them in person and have been kidnapped for ransom or killed.

  11. For some entertainment and education, read some of the stories at:

    This is a group of people who try to get cash from (or at least waste the time of) the criminals who run these scams.

    The stories are in the “Archive” section.


  13. Hey, I also recieved a letter of same kind. I replied it once and i got an answer too. now they need my address to send me the documents. i’m not going to give it thanks to you all. i was completely cought by their appealing letters. But i managed myself to not to give my details.(Account number or Address) Thats all thanks to you all. Otherwise i might got trapped in this.

    Can anyone tell me that how to teach them a good lesson to not to do these things further more?

  14. I have received this email I got pictures and a fake passport. I am a Military Police Officer. CID will investigate this.

    Dear Mr. Michael,

    Greetings and best wishes to you this lovely day. Many thanks for your email message and your readiness to assist me out of this present situation. I am grateful to God for providing you for this noble assistance. However I am compelled to inform you that this transaction will be concluded in good faith, with transparancy, understanding and honesty. I also recognize the fact that it will be difficult to believe someone especially when you’ve not met that person physically, but I also believe that God has many ways of bringing people together to achieve a common goal in life.

    First of all, I would want you to send me your personal details, i.e. your full legal names and address, personal phone and fax numbers respectively, a scanned copy of your identity or photograph for recognition. These details will go a long way to strengthen the much needed trust and confidence which will be the basis of this transaction. The money is my only hope of survival and as such I require to build a long lasting trust and confidence with you as we proceed further in this transaction.

    The fund is presently in a “suspensed account” of a bank here. The amount is US$7.5M (even Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States dollars). My father deposited the money before he was poisoned by his business associate out of jelousness and envy. he was poisoned by his close business partners. Since then, my security in this country is no longer protected, and that is why I want to leave country to come overthere to start a new life. I will meet with the bank Director to inform him my readiness to transfer the money to your account. But I must recieve your full legal assurance that the money will be protected under your custody in your country after transfer.

    As for the investment in your country. Please be informed that I am ignorant of business world, and as such will require your assistance to invest the money in a lucrative business for my future.

    Sir, you are entitled to 15% of the total amount as compensation for your kind assistance to transfer the money, you will then assist me to invest the remaining 85% in a lucrative business in you country’s economy. I have my eye on estate investment.

    Please get back to me with the informations and details requested above to enable me meet with the Bank and request for the transfer immediately.

    I sincerely thank you for your kindness in responding to this mail, and also your readiness to assist me in this matter. I will always remain grateful to God for this joint partnership and hoping that your assurances will be given to me for the security of the money under your custody.

    Please find attached my photographs and international passport copy for your reference as I expect the informations requested above.

    My warmest regards to your family and God bless you abundantly.

    Best wishes!

    Anita Bamba.

  15. I got the same letter as mike. I gave her a bak acct # with a Zero bal. I was stupid enough to give my phone and address. Not sure what I should do Now.

  16. I’m a network admin for my company and I’m always trying to educate my users on the scams and tactics used by spammers (particularly phishing type scammers). They are very good at what they do and their really should be more laws against and technology applied to stopping, catching and punishing people behind these acts. The worst of them are those that prey on the elderly.

  17. Hi,

    I revieved an email almost the same as this yesterday but from an African girl called Silvia James (which isn’t even very African sounding). She even sent a photo of herself which wasn’t convincing- a fake palm tree background. She claimed her father was a cocoa merchant in Abidjan. Here is a copy of a couple of the mails.


    Good a thing to write you. I have a proposal for

    you-this however is not mandatory nor will I in

    any manner compel you to honour against your will.

    Your profile pushed me to send you this mail,I am Silvia James,21years

    old and the only daughter of my late parents Mr.and Mrs.James. My

    father was a highly reputable busnness magnet-(a cocoa merchant)who operated

    in the capital of Ivory coast during his days.

    It is sad to say that he passed away mysteriously in France during one

    of his business trips abroad year 12th.Febuary 2004.Though his sudden

    death was linked or rather suspected to have been masterminded by an

    uncle of his who travelled with him at that time.But God knows the truth!

    My mother died when I was just 4 years old,and since then my father

    took me so special. Before his death on Febuary 12 2004 he called the

    secretary who accompanied him to the hospital and told him that he has the

    sum of Ten million,seven hundred thousand United State

    Dollars.(USD$10.700,000) left in one of the leading security company here in Abidjan

    Ivory coast West Africa.

    He further told me that he deposited the money in my name,I am just 21

    years old and a university undergraduate and really don’t know what to

    do.This is because I have suffered a lot of set backs as a result of

    incessant political crisis here in Ivory coast.The death of my father

    actually brought sorrow to my life.

    Dear,I am in a sincere desire of your humble assistance in this

    regards.Your suggestions and ideas will be highly regarded.

    Now permit me to ask these few questions:-

    1. Can you honestly help me as your Sister?

    2. Can I completely trust you?

    3. What percentage of the total amount in question will

    be good for you after the money is in your account?

    Please,Consider this and get back to me as soon as possible.Through my

    private email box.

    Thank you so much.

    My sincere regards,

    Silvia James”

    “My Dearest Donna,

    Thanks for your mail and for your word of ecouragement in this hour of need.I want you to assist me in the transfer and investment of this my inherited money, my late father deposited in a finance company,Everthing I told you about this money is real and legal,I have sufferred a lot since my father died.I will like to continue with my studies when I join you after the transfer of the fund out of this war country.

    I don’t have any body to look after me, there are some hopeless ones who want to kill me too and have my late father’s assets to enrich themselves.

    I don’t want to have the money invested here or to live here any more becasue of relatives and the political instability in this country as there is crisis going on here presently.

    I contacted you to be my Guardian that care for me and to help me look for a better investment, so that we can invest the money wisely when the money is transferred to your country under your arrangement.

    I have made my intention known to the deposit company where my late father deposited the money before his death,I presented the document given to me by my father, they acknowledged it but they require me to obtain a certificate of proof from the Federal High Court Here. that it’s in accordance to their rules and regulations that any money which the original depositor is late and is to be claimed by the next of kin must obtain this certificate to avoid second claim of the money from any member of the late depositor.

    They told me that whenever I am ready, they will introduce me to the Lawyer who will help me to obtain the document since I am so young to handle this transaction.

    Please promise me that you are not going to betray the parental trust i am imposing on you now! immediately the money is transfered to you! because this is the highest risk I am taking in my life,it took me a great pain to take this decision but i am only doing this due to the revelation I had before contacting you and I beleive that spirit of God can not decieve me.

    I will be very glad if you can come down here in Abidjan-Cote d Ivoire West Africa, to see things for yourself, because seeing is believing and also afford us the opportunity to see each other physically,so i will like to know if you are going to come over here to assist me so that in your next reply to me I will give you the contact of the finance company for you to contact them and let them know when you are coming down here which I believe that is the best way to handle this transaction also we can go together to the finance company to claim the money and travel together to your country for our joint investment in your country.

    Pls, I will like you to give me more data about your real person,I will send you mine in your next reply showing your contineous interest,including my photo.

    Hoping to hear from you soon.

    Till then remain blessed.

    “From Alimat Hassan.

    UNHCR Refugee Camp,

    Danane, Cote d’Ivoire

    Dear Gajendra,

    Mysteries has gone in my life. Life has become restless for me in this western part of Africa. 29th September 2002 later in the night the murders come without a pity without a mercy they kill my father in front of me.

    My father was a wealthy merchant.The trouble began early last year when my father’s associates started suspecting that my father is not giving proper accounts of all the tons of cocoa being cultivated by local farmers in some villages. This mistrust deepens between Jul-Aug 2002 when they discovered a very big some of money my father deposited with one of leading Bank here in Abidjan Cote D’Ivoire.

    As a result of this discovery and the enviness of the money ,he was killed by his associates.Before this, he revealed to me the reasons of his being hatred.He directed me where to get the documents of the said deposit, he told me that he enrolled my name as his next of kin for the deposit, being the only Daugther. He advised me that I should not stay in the country because his enemies might equally kill me to reap all his wealth hence my mother died five years ago of cancer.

    He instructed me that if he dies, that I should look for a foreign partner who will help me to transfer the money into the person’s account and the person will help me to invest the money in his or her country. My father finally died on 29th of September and since then I was out of school and went into hiding because of my father’s associates.

    All the relevant documents of the $10.5 (Ten Million Five Hundred Thousand dollars) that was deposited in a security company are intact with me now.

    My name is Alimat Hassan, I am 23yrs old and a student. Please I would require your urgent assistance so that I can move out from here before they kill me as they are tracing my hide out.I agreed to give you 20% of this money ,if you can help me bring out this fund from the Bank and transfer this money into your account for onward investment in your country.

    Please contact me immediately with my E-mail address and include your telephone and Fax numbers in your response to enable me send you all necessary details as regards to the procedure of securing the fund out from the Bank and transferring the fund to your end account.

    Please be rest assured that this transaction is 100% risk free.

    Alimat Hassan ”

    I replied to her asking her to get Deposit Certificate from Abidjan Federal High Court, then My Bank will investigate directly with her bank in Abidjan. I am not giving my Bank details.

  19. I know this is probably old, but I kept on replying to this sender, and she’s agreed to give me 50%….i didn’t give her any details, nor did i use my real name.

  20. sorry for double-posting, but she also gave me a picture of the contract between her and the bank, and her passport. very funny.

  21. I give thanks good that I found this website and a couple more with the list of some of the Banks and Financial Companies that those rats use as their trap for inocent ones… I been cheated too many times in my life that my trust in people is almost disappeared, So after I got this mail I started to research about the Financial Company that they been telling me about because it was sounding to good for me to be real.. anyways this is one of the e- mails I had received,,, and I will foward both of them to all the people I know to prevent them from this fraud, Notice that almost all come from the same State and Country…Thanks again to this website and all others that help to open our eyes in this dark world…

  22. Dear Jianshuo,

    About these spams and secret promises I just wrote to two of them once: Send me $100/- by Western Union to show your good faith and vindicate the contents of your letter. We will it take it from there. Otherwise your silence will show you are a spammer.


    “Silence of the Lambs” and suddenly they are on the lam, so to say.

    OK with regards,

    aka yusuf ibn aiyyoub,al aiyyoubi

  23. Im very thankful that I see this website, because I recvd also the same letter but different name, That letter distructed my work. But i give them my mobile No. and 27 june 06 he call me, and he call me as uncle so Im very affected about his story but beside that I tried to check about this because theres a lot of bogus coming in internet. So tell your friends about this kind of bogus….

    Thanks to the one made this website it will help a lot of people to avoid this criminal activities in internet.

    May the force be with U all!!!!!!!!!!!!

  24. Hi everybody

    I also thank to God & all of you that, I see this website and your comments. I have been recieving the same mails but different name. I have ask to send $1000 for process and awaiting reply.

    Very Thanks to creater of this website it will help a lot of people to secure from any fraud on internet.

  25. I received a similar letter as the one posted above from Elizabeth Kone..However, her offer to me was a “trunk Box” which contains

    40.7 million American dollars..I was instructed to contact the financial institution in Abidjan by phone or email..Ms Kone did foreward to me an official looking

    document of deposit for the above trunk..I contacted the person at the above email address. I received an immediate response requesting from me the following: 2 copies of my passport, a copy of my driver licensc and my phone mention of bank account numbers..I rather believe that the follow up would be for me to send a large sum of money to pay the freight charges of the “trunk box” containing 40.7 million $$. Let me know if any one actually falls for this magnanimous offer from Ms. Elizabeth Kone.

  26. Hey, I also recieved a letter of same kind. I replied it once and i got an answer too. now they need my address to send me the documents. but i might got trapped in this.

    Can anyone tell me that how to teach them a good lesson to not to do these things further more?

  27. Nana,

    You can try the following website for some tips against those scammers:

    Also, search for ‘419’ on Google, it will give a lot of websites which can help you to teach them a lesson… still, all sites give warnings out, it seems that some of these guys are actually involved in criminal organizations..

  28. i’m was got email like that several day’s ago (from Azhar Asjad), but i’m will pay if the trunk box come to my home and i opened. so i can see, what is contain of box. but them can’t serve me just like i want to do, i must pay charge of box delivery before accept the box :)) i’m not a stupid man. please be careful with this f**k scam ;) .

  29. Thank you sooooo much for putting up this site.I will not buy cocoa or chocolate from this country anymore. I recieved a similar letter from a sales site from a Helen Nana. The 1st web address she gave was wrong, the 2nd was wrong.She is 21 ,only daughter,Father was cocoa merchant,he “passed away mysteriously in France on a buis. trip in 2006. And get this, the same phrase as one of the other letters on this page, “BUT GOD KNOWS THE TRUTH”. Before his death, he said he had $10.5 million US in a metallic trunk box registered as family valuables, African art.Her father while on his ” SICK BED”,(I thought he vanished in France?Or maybe this was a prior sickness. He wanted her to find a foreign buis. partner/benificiary of the consignments so that the box would be released for a partnership investment. PROMISES 10%. So then I wrote back giving my support and phone number. But the second letter thanking me for replying after she had ” FASTED AND PRAYED FOR 14 DAYS”…blah, blah,blah…then asking for my FULL LEGAL NAME,PRIVATE PHONE/FAX,SCANNED COPY OF IDENTITY CARD,PHOTO FOR HER TO KNOW WHO SHE IS DEALING WITH! I thought, wait.That is when I found this site.All I can say is E-mail all your friends/family,co-workers. Thank God I am a minister and the holy spirit protected me from this SCAM.

  30. I received a mail like that, attach this:THEY ARE CRIMINALS..THE WORST IS THAT IN THE NAME OF GOD

    Good Day,

    Let me first of all inform you, I go through your profile to mail you for a permission to go ahead. As you read this, I don’t want you to feel sorry for me because I believe everyone will die someday. I am Mrs. monique guam. I am married to Mr. Tom guam. who worked with a oil company here in Cote D’Ivoire for twenty Years before he died in the tsunami disasters, we were married but without Any children. Since his death I decided not to re-marry. I have been diagnosed with Oesophageal cancer which was discovered very late, due to my laxity in carrying for my health. I have decided to give aims to charity organizations, as I want this to be one of the last good deeds I do on earth.

    When my late husband was Alive he deposited the sum of $17.5 million dollars (Seventeen million Five Hundred thousand United State Dollars) in the bank here in Abidjan. Presently this money is still with the bank and the management just Wrote me as the beneficiary to come forward for the money but I told him that I will Issue a letter of authorization to somebody to receive it on my behalf as I cannot come over, I am presently in a hospital where I have been undergoing treatment on Cancer in a hospital , I have since lost my ability to talk and my doctors have told me that I have only a few months to Live. I want a person that is trustworthy that will utilize 85% of this money to fund churches, orphanages and widows around the world but in my name “Mrs. monique guam”. and 15% for your kins assistance, Now that my health has deteriorated so badly, I cannot do this myself any more. I once asked members of my family to close one of the account and distribute the money which I have there to charity organizations, 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 have left for them.

    As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the bank. I will also issue you a letter of authority that will prove you as the new beneficiary of this fund.

    Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated herein and Keep this contact confidential till such a time this funds get to your Custody, this is to ensure that nothing jeopardizes my last wish on Earth.

    Please I advise that you email me back only at ( )


    madame monique guam

  31. Dear all,

    I actually believed that ads but I firstly knew the fact that this is impossible but I still don’t trust my own instinct. I gave them my old account with copy of my passport via email. Would you suggest what I should do?

    But don’t tell me to start praying because I already did.


  32. i almost fell for this crap too until i saw this i had a few days of ongoing emails


    So now that i have seen this i will reply to him accordingly.

  33. i am currently on this as one widow by the name of Mrs Maria Lopez who said she had lung cancer and her late husband had deposit 4.5million in a suspense account in Abidjan and she wanted to be the beneficiary so that this is to transfer to my account to help with Gods word and for orphanges/widows and so the moment the nurse who looked after her in hospital email me back saying she died yesterday and then the bank called United&Credit bank to send my bank account and other details for this to be transfer. Now they are asking for a sum of US$875.00 for account reactivation as they said the account is dormant, so once i sent the money they will transfer to my account. I even receive the doctors medical report for Mrs Maria Lopez… Thanks that i have read these i am going to say what should be saying to these people accordingly..
