The scam

I could not find these email addresses in scammed.by so I hope you can
include them for the next innocent person. These folks have bilked a
retired friend of mine (who as you can tell isn't highly educated) out of
$150,000 over the last 6 years, apparently. He approached me for $4,000 USD
to help him get his gold out of Africa, which got me researching this 419
scam. I don't know how they've convinced him that another $4,000 USD will
be his ticket to riches (one of these people is supposedly putting up the
other $8,000 to ship the $12M worth of gold to him in the United States)
when all the other money he has sent hasn't accomplished this, but they've
really hosed this guy. His house is about to be foreclosed upon this week
as a result of these criminals and he still thinks they are all independent
players trying to help him out. Once the gold gets here, the girlfriend he
found through an online matching service is going to come from Ghana to
America to marry him. Poor guy. He tells me this enormously elaborate
story that makes my head spin trying to make sense of what happened when and
who is doing what and why his money and his gold are taking so long to get
to him.

your funds.



Presently the account that was open in your name with our bank is currently
dormant now, before any transfer can commerce you need to pay for the
activation charges then we will proceed with the transfer to your designated
account in US.

Attn. ------,

Thanks for your mail. As i told you on our phone conversation yesterday. I
work with the ECOWAS Regional foreign commission and is to monitor every
transaction going on in the West African States.

We got your phone number from our office in Ghana-Burkina faso border,
stating to us about a trunk box containing your information that was the
reason I called you to verify because we have notice somebody is trying to
divert the funds to Lebanon. We know you are from the United States and got
nothing to with Lebanon. As am talking to you now the funds have been
deposited in an Escrow account with community bank here in Ghana, So if you
are ready then I will instruct you on what to allow your funds be wired to
your account in the states.



But you have to promise me that when the funds is successfully wire to you I
have my percentage inside that is why am putting this effort.
