Standard 419. There is no pot of money, there is no special account.
You will be asked to pay a series of fees in advance, for legal costs, travel, bribes, whatever.
The criminals will simply keep that money and nothing will ever be sent to you.
Worth noting that this story about a merchant dying of oesophagal cancer has been around for several years. This fraudster simply seems to have taken an email he received and changed the name. Fernando: very Arabic sounding name, don’t you think?
I know this mail might be a surprise to you since you
don't know me ,but kindly accept my apology. My name is James fernando
a merchant in Kuwait,I have been diagnosed with esophageal cancer .It
has defiled all forms of medical treatment, and right now I have only
about a few months tolive,according to medical experts. I have not
particularly lived my life so well, as I never really cared for anyone
(not even myself) but my business.
Though I am very rich, I was never
generous, I was always hostile to people and only focused on my business
as that was the only thing I cared for. But now I regret all this as I
now know that there ismore to life than just wanting to have or make all
the money in theworld. I believe when God gives me a second chance to
come to thisworld I would live my life a different way from how I have
lived it.Nowthat God has called me, I have willed and given most of my
property andassets to my immediate and extended family members as well
as a few close friends. I want God to be merciful to me and accept my
soul so, Ihave decided to give alms to charity organizations, as I want
this to beone of the last good deeds I do on earth.
So far, I have
distributedmoney to some charity organizations in the Dubai, Algeria and
Malaysia. Now that my health has deteriorated so badly, I cannot dothis
myself anymore. I once asked members of my family to close one ofmy
accounts and distribute the money which I have there to
charityorganization in Bulgaria and Pakistan; they refused and kept the
Hence, I do not trust them anymore, as they
seem not to be contended with what I have left for them. The last of my
money which no one knows of, is Eighty Five Million United States
Dollars(US$85, 000, 000.00) which have been deposited with a
financefirm in holland. i will want you to help me collect this
deposit and dispatched it to charity organizations. I have set aside
25% for youand for your time. God be with you.
