Oh wait, no this is from Ghana so it might be legit!! wink




Hello! Reply Asap,

I am Mr. Collins Kwame, a banker here in Ghana. I write you this proposal in good faith hoping that I will rely on you. In 2007, Mr. Hudson who has your country in his file as his place of origin, made a fixed deposit of Eight Million, Five Hundred Thousand USA Dollars (US$8,500,000.00 with my bank. I was his account officer. Unfortunately, while on a business trip, he died in a deadly Tsunami earthquake in Sichuan China, in 2008 that killed many people.

The management of our bank have been finding a means to reach him so as ascertain if he will want to roll over the deposit or have the contract sum withdrawn, when I discovered that this will happen, I learnt of his death, so I have tried to think up a procedure to preserve this fund and use the proceed for charity. Some directors have been trying to find out from me the information about this account and the owner, but I have kept it closed because, I know that if they become aware, they will corner the funds for themselves.

Therefore, I am seeking your co-operation to present you as the one to benefit from his fund at his death since you are from the same country with him, so that my bank head quarters will pay the funds to you. I have done enough inside bank arrangement and only have to put in your details into the information network in the bank computers and reflect you as his next of kin.

I immensely request for your optimum honesty and cooperation and Let me know your mind on this, and please do treat this information as Top secret. We shall go over the details once I receive your urgent response to my email - [co_kwame@hotmail.com], we can as well discuss this on phone. Send me your phone number for easy communication anticipating your communication.

Best Regards,
Mr. Collins Kwame.

WOW haven't got one of those in years...What I was getting until i changed my phone number was some one with bad English saying he is from the Government and needed to validate some information...And you could hear a ton of people in the back ground talking all with bad accents,,I know the Gov't doesn't call and with the accent it was laughable ,,Until I got like 28 calls in one day and the numbers kept changing but the area code was the Cayman Islands..Next day had the cable company change my number and haven't got one since I feel bad knowing some senior citizens fall for these scams..I'm hitting 70 but at least still got most of my marbles

You're too late, just so you know, don't bother, I've already claimed it and have sent Kwame the US$56,000 that is required to release the funds. Winnah!

Totally fake. Everyone knows banks always capitalize USA DOLLARS when sending correspondence.

No kidding. The closest point of Sichuan China to the nearest large body of water is about 450 miles .


There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.
