Once again, we are going to be wealthy. Several more weeks and we will be able to buy that new jumbo jet we’ve had our eye on. Or will we? Might Dr. John Tony be misleading us?

Could this be a Fraud?

We have the first tell-tale sign of illegitimacy, the ever-present undisclosed recipients.

We receive the mandatory dose of CAPITALIZED departmental puffery.

For some reason the writers of these pitiful attempts to defraud us seem to feel that the longer the name is and the larger the letters are, the more impressive the organization is supposed to be. We have always found the opposite to be the case.  CIA, NSA, KGB (now FSB), MI-6, SS; these are impressive organizations that might make one lose sleep and while they are capitalized, they are exceedingly brief.

While the Central Bank does exist, we feel certain that may be the only truth in this missive.

Dear Sir/Madam, 

Which ever we may be.

I am Dr. John Tony Director Allocation Department from the (Central Bank of Nigeria ) Lagos Branch.My office monitors and controls the affairs of all banks and Financial institutions in Nigeria concerned with foreign claim 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.

Dr. John Tony was absent when the Central Bank prepared its website and as a result, they have no record of him. Their website does provide this warning page. They also provide personnel lists. They do not provide any information about our important Dr. John Tony.

We next receive the prescribed dose of double-speak regarding his clever handling of an unpaid fund.

I have a file before me and the data’s 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 of payment reports / expenditures and audited reports of revenues. Among several others, I have decided to remit your claim sum following my idea that we can have a deal/agreement and I am g oing to do this legally.

Once again we are assured that through his cleverness he will outwit the bank and the government in order to send us money,

My conditions:
1. The sum of USD$25.7M only will be transfer into your account after the proccessing of all relevant legal documents with your name as the bonfide beneficary,the transfer will be made by Draft or telegraphic Transfer (T/T), confirmable in 3 working days.

He and his staff of speedy typists shall produce all the forged documents required in less than three days.

2. This deal must be kept secret forever, and all correspondence will be strictly by email / telephone, for security purposes.

We will promise to not let anyone know about his email or our deal. Our bad.

3. There should be no third parties as most problem associated with your fund release are caused by your agents or representative.

We shall restrain our vast force of agents as they are interfering with our ability to receive the money which we would be using to pay their salaries. We thought that they weren’t too bright when we hired them. Now we have proof. Performance reviews may go harshly this year.

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.

After we receive the money we will give him half of it. Possession is, we believe, nine-tenths of the law. Dr. John Tony will not be negotiating from a position of strength once the money is in our hands. We, on the other hand, never negotiate from a position of strength. We know several moderately priced assassins. Do not get greedy Dr. john.

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.

We do not exactly agree, but we can quibble later.

1. Your Full Name
2. Current Address
3. Direct Phone/Fax Number
4 Occupations
5. Age
6. International Passport

Yet another malformed form. Does no one in Africa know how to code an HTML table?

 I hope you don’t reject this offer and have this funds transferred.

We are confused. We can reject the offer and still transfer the funds. Is that what you’re telling us, Dr. John?

Waiting for your reply soon.

Yours faithfully.

Dr. John Tony used his Chinese email account in order to sneak this past the bank security forces. Isn’t he clever?

No, actually he is not very clever. It was a simple matter to find sufficient flaws in his letter to deem this a Fraud.

Do nothing more with Dr. John Tony than to delete this from your inbox.

This is a Fraud.

Return next time as we take a break from the normal routine and present a “Short Guide to Fraud Spotting” here at HowToSpotAFraud.com.

That is all.
