Protect Yourself and Report the Latest Frauds, Scams, Spams, Fakes, Identify Theft Hacks and Hoaxes
Have you received an email from "Fillomina Williams", who says "My dady was killed last year when he attended a ceremony in the village. he was brutaly killed and was shut severally by my uncles on his way back from a conference" ? 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 "Fillomina Williams", needs YOUR help to recover the fortune and is willing to pay you an enormous sum of money! 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.
Greetings My Dearest One,
My Dear, please do not be upset due to the mail i sent to you, also because we have not met before but i know that we do not meet accidentally, rather i meet you by the special grace of God when i found your profile email address and after praying, i just hand over everything to Gods hand believing that you must be a kind, sincere, faithful and understandable person whom will understand me and assist me in this my current situation.
Let me start by giving you an introduction of my self and my family background.
My real name is Miss Fillomina Williams. I was born and brought up in Cote d'ivoire on 2nd october 1984 ( im 22 yrs old ) . Also i am the only child to my parents. My mumy's name is Dr. Mrs. Gloria Bintu Williams. My mum died when i was four years old ( 12th dec 1988 ) and since then my dady took me so special.
My Dady was a forma Senator here he was a well known wealthy cocoa merchant before he went into politics and was elected into the senate seat, because he was well know good man here. That also made him not to be in a good term with his brothers ( my uncles ). which created a very big enemity between them. I have severally adviced my dady to send me abroad so that his enemies may not seek for me to kill or wound in order to wecked my dad, but my dady refused saying that he needs me to stay with him due to that i am the only family he has.
But unfortunately, My dady was killed last year when he attended a ceremony in the village. he was brutaly killed and was shut severally by my uncles on his way back from a conference. but he do not die instantly and was admited in a private hospital here and Before the death of my father in a private hospital here in Abidjan he secretly called me on his bed side and told me that he has the sum of four million,eight hundred thousand United State Dollars.USD($4,800,000.00) left in fixed / suspense account in one of the prime bank here in Abidjan,that he used my name as his only daughter for the next of Kin in depositing of the fund. He also explained to me that it was because of this wealth that he was shut by his brothers (my uncles).
That I should seek for a foreign partner in a country of my choice where i will transfer this money and use it for investment purpose such as real estate management or hotel management so that i can secure my life too and be out from my uncles for my dear life .
Right now I am stranded and have ran out from the city to a nearby village because my uncles have turned out trying to eliminate me too because they wanted to inherrit all hat my dady has. but thank God i found one pastor Michael whom have been of a good assistance to me. He accommodated me in his church when i explained everything to him, and was giving me a finnancial accomodation till i finds a patner overseas whom will help me to transfer my inherritance abroad while i travels to join him and start up a new life.
So my dear i am seeking your assistance in the following ways:
1) To help me transfer this fund to your country because i have discused with the bank about my intensions to transfer my inherritance abroad which they have accepted.
2) to serve as a guardian of this fund since i am only 22yrs old.
3) To make arrangement for me to come over to your country to further my education and to secure a resident permit in your country.
Moreover, My dear I am willing to offer you 5% of the total sum as compensation for your effort/input after the successful transfer of this fund into your nominated account overseas.
Furthermore, you indicate your options towards assisting me as I believe that this transaction would be concluded within fourteen (14) days you signify interest to assist me.
I am looking foward to your hopeful respond and may God be with you.
