Attn:Category "A" Beneficiary

Dear Sir,

We write to inform you that we have been authorized by the office of the President,
Federal Republic of Nigeria and Federal Ministry of Finance to investigate the
reasons associated with the unnecessary delay to the release of your outstanding
Prize Winning Contract/Inheritance payment and effect your transfer from Federal
Government reserve account immediately.The appointment of this Bank to correct all
the anomalies surrounding your payment was further authenticated and endorsed by the
World Bank delegates that visited this country recently.

During the course of our investigations,we discovered with dismay that your payment
has been unnecessarily delayed by some dubious and corrupt officials in the
over the world,what the remitting bank does is to deduct all charges from the
beneficiary's principle sum and remit the balance and you have been warned for your
own interest to stop all your correspondences with any other party,office or
individual because authority to effect transfer has been withdrawn from them.

Before we proceed to transfer the above sum into your Bank Account, we would like you
to re-confirm once again your Authentic Bank information.This measure adopted by this
bank which is the appointed Bank of settlement for debts and services by the Federal
Government of Nigeria and World Bank delegates is not to hurt you but is to guard
against payment to a wrong beneficiary or transfer of fund into a wrong account.

We are going to expedite action on the remittance of your total sum by Swift
Telegraphic Transfer immediately we hear from you.


Yours Faithfully,

Alhaji Nurudeen Fagbenro
Director,International Remittance Office

So How Come?

My photo
I have two blogs at the moment - Here Be Dragons which is devoted to rental scams primarily sourced through Craigslist although the proliferation of free ad sites has widened the hunting grounds. Many additions come from other sources (ie: blogs/anti-scam sites/online community ad sites) or are provided by people who want to share their experiences. There Ain't No Such Thing As A Free Lunch is for copies of scammail that I find in my mailboxes ~ sometimes I can't resist the odd acerbic comment but for the most part I post 'em because the more that people do, the fewer fools they get to gull. Dunno what to say about me that would be very interesting ~ I'm a granny who reads, gardens and crafts as the mood strikes me. :) I don't particularly care for the social predators on this planet and this blog is part of my way of saying so.
