Scams from Widows and Orphans: Abraham Daye

Scam Money Transfers
Example -
Abraham Daye,
"I am Abraham Daye, 25years and the only child of late Chief Mr. Christopher Daye, a former special adviser on rural development and culture of interior ministry in Liberia, West Africa. My late father was in charge of solid minerals like Cocoa, Gold, and Diamonds etc before he was murdered by the opposition rebels during the last civil war in my country.",

Have you received an email from "Abraham Daye", who says

"I am Abraham Daye, 25years and the only child of late Chief Mr. Christopher Daye, a former special adviser on rural development and culture of interior ministry in Liberia, West Africa. My late father was in charge of solid minerals like Cocoa, Gold, and Diamonds etc before he was murdered by the opposition rebels during the last civil war in my country."?

And what follows is a convoluted sob story of one misery after another, along with a healthy dose of gibberish, spelling errors, terrible gram, syntax and punctuation, not exactly befitting an extremely wealthy person. And now, poor bereaved "Abraham Daye", needs YOUR help:

"to represent as my late father's foreign partner/trustee as required by the company in the claiming and clearance of this inheritance.".

Odd that they'd pick a total stranger, in a foreign country to trust their money to, don't you think?

Of course, it is a scam. Don't reply to it.

Scam email from "Abraham Daye"

Original message from Abraham Daye <dayeabraham74@yahoo.co.in>: --------------

Dearest,
Good day to you.
 
I am Abraham Daye, 25years and the only child of late Chief Mr.
Christopher Daye, a former special adviser on rural development and culture of interior ministry in Liberia, West Africa. My late father was in charge of solid minerals like Cocoa, Gold, and Diamonds etc before he was murdered by the opposition rebels during the last civil war in my country.
 
As the only child, I managed to escape to a neighboring country through assistance of some (ECOMOG) soldiers who made it possible for our evacuation to Ghana where I am presently residing with my aged mother at the Bujumbura camp as refugees.
 
During this movement, we discovered of some merchandise my late father secretly diverted / deposited in one Security and financial firm in the Ghana during his service in government. My late father had a foreign associate whom he earlier planned to use in transferring these funds abroad but we couldn't locate the partner in Amsterdam.
 
This merchandise in a trunk box contained the sum of $9,500,000.00 USD but was declared during the deposit as family treasure for security coverage , I need an assistance of a honest and sincere person to represent as my late father's foreign partner/trustee as required by the company in the claiming and clearance of this inheritance.
 
The inheritance is planned to be used in any profitable investment with you in any of the developed countries of your choice. As soon as this fund gets to you in your country, I will come over to meet you and also to further my education.
 
Upon the receipt of your interest, I will furnish you with more details.
 
Yours truly,
Abraham Daye
