In that mail I read about Nigeria… Perhaps this is related with the “Nigeria-Connection”.
Here are some information about this topic:
The “Nigeria-Connection” is a group of people who live in Africa, mainly in Nigeria, and try to cheat with the following system:
- They pretend they have access to a large amount of money, but they need your help!
- This Mailings have been sent worldwide since the 1990s. Recipients are often promised large sums.
- If someone replied to this mail, a “low fee” is required, for example for transfers, legal fees, taxes or bribes.
- The stories are fantastic and often the explanations sounds logical.
- When you send money, you will not see it again and they will also try a second and third time.
- Do not answer your mails!
- In the last few years the Nigeria-Connection has developed its old concept.
Now, these scammers are also on popular websites for car sales, real estate and partnership databases. You can find them in all social networks.

Here is a similar mail. Maybe it also comes from the Nigeria connection:
I am Mr. Hassan Maho, I want to seek your assistance after my discovery during auditing in my bank as I’m the manager of Bill and Exchange at the Foreign Remittance Department in Banque Centrale des Etats de l’Afrique de l’Ouest (BCEAO).
In my department we discovered a sum of $31.300.000 million in an account that belonged to one of our foreign customer. Upon maturity, we sent a routine notification to his forwarding address but got no response.
After some months, we sent a reminder and finally discovered that our customer died from an automobile accident. On further investigation, I found out that he did not leave a will and all attempts to trace his next of kin were fruitless.
I therefore made further investigation and discovered that the deceased person did not declare any next of kin in all his official documents, including his bank deposit paperwork.
It is therefore upon this discovery that I decided as the head of my department to make this business proposal to you and release the money to you as the next of kin or relation to the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement, and you will be given 35% of the total amount, 60% will be for me, while 5% will be for expenses both parties might have incurred during the process of transferring. After the transfer is made to your country / account since nobody is coming for it and we don’t want this money to go into the Bank treasury as unclaimed bills.
We will conclude this operation within 21 banking days based on the amount of co-operation you will contribute.
We will start the first transfer with Eleven million [$11,000.000] upon successful transaction without any disappoint from your side, we shall re-apply for the payment of the remaining amount to your account.
I need your full co-operation to make this work fine. Because the management is ready to approve this payment to any foreigner who has correct information of this account, which I will give to you, upon your positive response and once I am convinced that you are capable and will meet up with instruction of a key bank official who is deeply involved with me in this business.
I need your strong assurance that you will never,never let me down. With my influence and the position of the bank official we can transfer this money to any foreigner’s reliable account which you can provide with assurance that this money will be intact pending our physical arrival in your country for sharing. The bank official will destroy all documents of transaction immediately we receive this money leaving no trace to any place and to build confidence, you can come immediately to discuss with me face to face after which I will make this remittance in your presence and three of us will fly to your country at least two days ahead of the money going into the account.
I will apply for annual leave to get visa immediately I hear from you that you are ready to act and receive this fund in your account. I will use my position and influence to obtain all legal approvals for onward transfer of this money to your account with appropriate clearance from the relevant ministries and foreign exchange departments. At the conclusion of this business, you will be given 35% of the total amount, 60% will be for me, while 5% will be for expenses both parties might have incurred during the process of transferring.
Thank you for your understanding as I await your urgent response for me to give you more details don’t forget to give me those information below before we can go ahead in this business/project.
