    I am Dr.Ahmed Usman, Director Location department from the Central Bank of Nigeria. My office monitors and controls the affairs of all banks/financial institutions in Nigeria concerned with foreign cold Fair payments. I am the final signatory to any transfer or remittance of huge funds moving within banks both on the local and international levels in line with foreign claim settlements. I have before me list of funds, which could not be transferred to some nominated accounts as these accounts have been identified either as ghost accounts, unclaimed deposits or over-invoiced sum. 0n this note, I wish to have a deal with you as regards to an unpaid fund. I have a file before me and the dates are correct and UN-tampered. As it is my duty to recommend the transfer of these surplus funds to the Federal Government Treasury and Reserve Accounts as unclaimed deposits, I have the opportunity to write you based on the instructions I received two days ago from the Foreign Debts reconciliation dept to submit the List.

    My conditions: (1.) the sum of USD$23.5M only will be transfer into your account after the processing of all relevant legal documents with your name as the bonafide beneficiary, the transfer will be made by Draft or telegraphic Transfer (T/T), conformable in 3 working days. (2.) This deal must be kept secret forever, and all correspondence will be strictly by email / telephone, for security purposes. (3.) There should be no third parties as most problems associated with your fund release are caused by your agents or representative. (4.) Note that after the successful completion of this transaction, you and I will have a fair share of the fund in the ratio of 50:50.If you AGREE with my conditions, l advise you on what to do immediately and the transfer will commence without delay as I will proceed to fix your name on the Payment schedule instantly to meet the three days mandate.

    thats a risky business . If you reply to string him along , you're confirming your email address, and opening yourself up to even more spam
    Who knows what they will attach to the subsequent emails .
    Its as pointless as yelling at phone telemarketers or door to door salesmen.

    These scams would only catch people who are dishonest themselves .

    If you want to amuse yourself there are sites that have dedicated a great deal of time and effort into scamming the scammers

    We get spoofed telemarketers - after their robots find an active phone number.

    The kick is this ---> they spoof our area code (406) and then our sub-suffix number (360, 385, etc) and that makes us think it is a legal call --- but it ain't.

    My phone number is 406-360-xxxx (I did that in case there's a slurpy spider-bot here) and I'll get a caller ID # of 406-360-2233 f'er instance. It's bogus, but they are on the line - just once.

    It fools people in business since they WANT new customers and cannot in actuality confirm that this is a bogus call - or not. It MIGHT be a new customer and a supplier/merchant cannot run the risk of alienating new meat.

    Just a time waster.

    Tracers say these calls originate from Bulgaria, China, Korea or some South African country individuals with no ethics, morals, concern or extradition.
