Scam from Nigeria again, with a veiled threat men soliciting $ again (2815 hits)

Very well written but I hope everyone in the United States is familiar with this stupidity. this is getting real old ok? it's been around for about 10 years now. There is a sucker born every minute but I am too seasoned for the dumb stuff and I am not greedy. The psych won't work, invoking God won't work and asking for pity won't work either. Sisters out there don't get faint. It's a scam replete with using the last name of the receiver as a "family" connection.

And yes I am an anthropologist and the pix is of a homo-erectus. idiot! am mad..grrrrr

From: Mr.David Ackad,

Dear Ms.Marta,

This information that I am about to reveal to you might either destroy me, ruin my professional career or make me, depending on how you received and take it, the future and happiness of my family depends on it. Please I need you to read this mail attentively to know the reason and purpose why you received this mail from me, I didn't come to you by chance nor by accident, I have come to you because your names has planted you in the centre of relevant in my life and my professional career as a banker at this very moment. Before I go further to introduce myself to you I would like to plead with you to delete and not expose this information if you are not interested.

I am Mr.David Ackad,a managing director and head of international private banking division of BNP PARIBAS Investment Bank Cote d'Ivoire S.A. I am contacting you concerning a deceased client (Late Mr.Ron Marlon Fernandez), and an investment he placed under our bank's management 3 years ago. I would respectfully request that you keep the contents of this mail confidential and respect the integrity of the information you come by as a result of this mail.I contact you independently and no one is informed of this communication.

I would like to intimate you with certain facts that I believe would be of interest to you. In 2006, the subject matter came to our bank to engage in business discussions with our private banking division.. He informed us that he had a financial portfolio of 12.7 million Euro, which he wished to have us turn over (invest) on his behalf. I was the officer assigned to his case; I made numerous suggestions in line with my duties as the de-facto chief operations officer of the private banking sector, especially given the volume of funds he wished to put into our bank. We spun the money around various opportunities and made attractive margins for our first months of operation, the accrued profit and interest stood at this time at over 6 million Euros, this margin was not the full potential of the fund but he desired low risk guaranteed returns on his investments. In mid 2005, he asked that the money be liquidated because he needed to make an urgent investment requiring cash payments. He directed that I liquidate the funds and have it deposited with a security firm in Abidjan.

I undertook all the processes and made sure I followed his precise instructions to the letter and had the funds deposited with a security consultancy firm in Abidjan as he had directed. This security firm is especially private firms that accept deposits from high net worth individuals and blue chip corporations that handles valuable products or undertake transactions that need immediate access to cash.This small and highly private organization is familiar especially to the highly placed and well-connected organizations. In Line with instructions, the money was deposited with them. He told me he wanted the money there in anticipation of his arrival from France later that week. This was the last communication we had, this transpired around 27th June 2006. In October 2008 we got a call from the security company informing us of the inactivity of that particular portfolio.

This was an astounding position as far as I was concerned, given the fact that I managed the private banking sector I was the only one who knew about the deposit at the security company, and I could not understand why our client had not gone forward to claim his deposit. I made futile efforts to locate him. I immediately passed the task of locating him to the internal investigations department. Four days later, information started to trickle in, apparently our man was dead. If you are familiar with private banking affairs, those who patronize our services usually prefer anonymity, but also some levels of detachment from conventional processes.

In his bio-data form, he listed no next of kin. In the field of private banking, opening an account with us means no one will know of its existence, accounts are rarely held under a name; depositors use numbers and codes to make the accounts anonymous. It is this investigation that resulted in my being furnished with your details as a possible relative of the deceased because of the similarity in your last names.My official capacity dictates that I am the only party to supervise the investigation and the only party to receive the results of the investigation. It is quite clear now that our dear fellow died with no known or identifiable family members.

This leaves me as the only person with the full picture of what the prevailing situation is in relation to the deposit and the late beneficiary of the deposit. According to practice, the security company will however broadcast a request for statements of claim to COFIPA Investment Bank Cote d'Ivoire S.A., failing to receive viable claims they will most probably revert the deposit to COFIPA Investment Bank Cote d'Ivoire S.A... This will result in the money entering the BANK Private Bank accounting system and the portfolio will be out of my hands and out of the private banking division.

This will not happen if I have my way with you.What I wish to relate to you will smack of unethical practice but I want you to understand something. It is only an outsider to the banking world who finds the internal politics of the banking world aberrational. The world of private banking especially is fraught with huge rewards for those who sit upon certain chairs and oversee certain portfolios.You should have begun by now to put together the general direction of what I propose. There is 12.7 million Euro deposited in a security company in Abidjan. I alone have the deposit details and they will release the deposit to no one unless I instruct them to do so.I alone know of the existence of this deposit for as far as COFIPA Investment Bank Cote d'Ivoire S.A.,is concerned, the transaction with the late customer concluded when I sent the funds to the security company in Abidjan, all outstanding interactions in relation to the file are just customer services and due process.
The security company has no single idea of what's the history or nature of the deposit. They are simply awaiting instructions to release the deposit to any party that I may direct. This is the situation.I will simply nominate you as the next of kin and have them release the deposit to you. We share the proceeds 50/50. You with the same very last name as the original depositor would easily pass as the beneficiary with right to claim.

The alternative would be for us to have the security company direct the funds to another bank with you as account holder. This way there will be no need for you to think of receiving the money directly from the security company as it is not a conventional financial institution; they accept deposits from only organizations thus; what you hand over to them is what you get back. They do not have the means to process the money. I am not a criminal and what I do, I do not find against good conscience, this may be hard for you to understand, but the dynamics of my industry dictates that I make this move. Such opportunities only come once in a life time. I cannot let this chance pass me by. For once I find myself in total control of my destiny.

If you will not work with me let me know and let me move on with my life, I am a family man and this is an opportunity to provide them with new opportunities. There is a reward for this project and it is a task well worth undertaking.I have evaluated the risks and the only risk I have here is from you refusing to work with me and alerting my bank. I am the only one who knows of this situation, good fortune has blessed you with a name that has planted you in the centre of relevance in my life. Let’s share the blessing.

If you find yourself able to work with me, contact me through this email. If you give me positive signals, I will give you the relevant details and initiate this process towards a conclusion. I do not want any direct link between you and me. My official lines are not secure lines as they are periodically monitored to assess our level of customer care in line with our total Quality Management Policy.

Please observe this instruction religiously. Do not betray my confidence in you.
I await your response.
Mr.David Ackad.

Good point Irma. The most important aspect of the scam is that the target thinks they are about to get something for nothing They call it a “con” – short for confidence, because they gain your confidence in that regard. So the “sucker” really doesn’t have a leg to stand on because they got taken in the process of attempting to be crooked themselves! And typically people who get scammed by these are so embarrassed they don’t report it. That’s the beauty of it.

MSNBC did a documentary on this recently where they went to Nigeria and showed these guys sitting in internet cafes, cranking out these emails. They must get lucky and get people from time to time, otherwise they wouldn’t spend so much time on it.

Marta, boy that was a long plea letter. My hubby tells me instantly, DELETE.DELETE.DELETE.
Saturday, March 21st 2009 at 12:00AM
No, you don't delete. Had you exposed, exposed, exposed maybe I would not have received this. (smiles)I think as a community, not only caring about myself but others --if you only get one once in a blue moon, maybe , if it's in your own e-mail, well of course that's what I do,but this is on a network with a lot of people who are not familiar with the scam, therefore I post it to warn, and hopefully stop them from coming on this site.

You know you're right by doing so.
Chances are, someday the con artist scores. And someone will be hurting.
This was a sophisticated plea. As in professional, and like you stated, well written.
You may have saved someone hardship by exposing this.
We don't know how to share, especially helpful information. This is why I cherish most things you write. You also try to enlighten.
We need to get out of the mode of always thinking of ourselves all the time.
In doing so, it almost makes us just as bad as the con-artist.

Yes and unfortunately they got one who used to work for Bear, Stearn investment bankers in New York. Because this does happen once in a while in real life--and the greed kicks in -you start believing the possibilities --shucks I have better chance of marrying Lionel Ritchie tomorrow than getting a nickel from this fool!

Bottom line is Greed and something for nothing !
Thats exactly what's needed in con artistry !

I got this letter today. How can we expose them
Tuesday, May 12th 2009 at 9:20AM
How long are you suppose to think about this?(smile)Every one needs extra cash even if they have to put up a little SEED money to get filfty rich in the end,,,,HA,HA,HA

Things like this never fail to confirm you can not cheat an honest man as he is not out to get something for NOTHING or, is it bad things only happens to others getting cheated out of their money, but not ME!!!

Each time I see one of these scams it takes me back to my friendd who tried to get upset with me trying to tell her this is a scam -someone's going to send her a check to deposit in her bank account and send him the money.I had given up long ago trying to tell her about that on line dating.

I just gave up and told her to in between emailing this person to look up the "Nigerian Scam"...She did and called me a few days later to apologize and to thenk me.

Victims of these scams are regular visitors on those TV series Civil Court cases with those like Judge Joe Brown and Judge Judy.They get the checks and con family members to deposit the checks in their accounts than say it is not their fault because they did not know the checks were not good. PEOPLE!!!!!!!!is all I can say to this(smile)

And, people fault the friend for not taking a frien's keys so they will not drive!!!!You may be the first one dead trying to get those keys from someone, because trying to save someone from themselves is not easy to do....
