One of the funnier 419 scams

Post by digidog » Tue Feb 26, 2008 9:30 am

This poor woman needs someone like me to look after her $2.8m. Her
husband died of Cardiac Arteries apparently. Ow!
Urgent Attention.From Mrs Elinor Jacob.

Dearest Calvary Greetings,

With Due Respect And Humanity, I was compelled to write to you under a
humanitarian ground.


My name is Joy Elinor Jacob. I was born in Baltimore, Maryland, I am
married to Mr. George Jacob director J.C Industries Cote d'Ivoire.We
were married for 36 years without a child. He died after a Cardiac
Arteries Operation.

And Recently, My Doctor told me that I would not last for the next six
months due to my cancer problem (cancer of the liver and stroke).


Before my husband died last year there is this sum $2.8 Million Dollars
that he deposited with a Private Finance Company here In Ivory Coast.
Presently this money is still in the Vault of the Company.


Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to any good God
fearing brother or sister that will utilize this fund the way I am
going to instruct herein.


I want somebody that will use this fund according to the desire of my
late.husband to help Lessprivilaged people, orphanages,widows and
propagating the word of God.


I took this decision because I don’t have any child that will inherit
this fund, And I don’t want in away where this money will be used
in an unGodly way.


This is why I am taking this decision to hand you over this Fund. I am
not afraid of death hence I know where I am going.I want you to always
remember me in your daily prayers because of my up coming Cancer
Surgery.


Write back as soon as possible any delay in your reply will give me
room in sourcing another person for this samea purpose, Hoping to read
from you asap.


God bless you as you listing to the voice of reasoning,

Mrs Elinor George Jacob.

Yahoo conceals the originating IP address so we can't confirm where this

Yahoo account. Cote d'Ivoire peut etre?

I'm almost tempted to give this one a spin.

I did reply to this 419 scam via a throwaway address. It's been four days
with no reply so the scammer's email account may have been closed.
Calvary Greetings Mrs Jacob,

I was very moved by your email and believe that God must have moved
you to find me. They say the Lord moves in mysterious ways, but he's
certainly taken a giant leap to the left this time. Praise be.

We are raising funds at the moment to build a new orphanage for the
children of White Island. This is expensive given the island's status as an
active volcano which increases building costs out of sight, I'm sure you'll
appreciate. So your email could not have come at a better time. Your
money will be well spent and the orphans will forever praise your name.

Please let me know what we should do next.

God bless you.

Our scammer Elinor Jacobs has mysteriously become Elinor George. I
guess it's difficult keeping track of multiple scams. But "her" late hubby
was called George Jacobs so the confusion of remembering your own name
is, I suppose, natural in the circumstances. What with the poor thing going
into hospital shortly. She writes:
Deares ******,

I have heard what you said, I never received the mail, If not I shouldn't
have being sending you a reminder e-mail, like I said ealier, I have a
forth coming sugery to take, and I have no money for it because I have
spent all the cash on me here in the hospital, moreover, I have no access
to that trunk box that contains the funds, because of the agreement
between my late husand and the security company, so I wil appreciate
immediately you receive the trunk to wire me little money so I can go for
the operation or find a means and get me over there for a better treament
for this Cancer sickness , because here in Abidjan, the doctors keep on
discouraging me that I will not make it even after the surgery.

My Dear Sister, Like I was saying on my first reply to you, you will need to
contact the Security company, Introduce yourself to them as my foriegn
partner or friend, tell them that I and you have discussed and agreed that
the trunk box deposited by my late husband in their custody should be
deliver to your address for futher utilization of the contents, remember the
security company does not know the real content of the box, because my
late husband deposited the trunk as containing our family valuables, so
you try and be careful when speaking with the security company , to avoid
anything that will raise an eye-brow , I mean I don't want anything that
will happen to that money, I want it to be successfully delivered to you so
you can use the money as we discussed.



Bellow is the contact Information of the security company.
Trans-World Diplomatic Sarl.
Sea & Air Diplomatic Baggage Handling Agent
port de péche Ex-sitram Armement, Abidjan-CI
Telephone : 0022503249370 /0022545214420
E-mail : transworld_sec_sarl@yahoo.fr
Contact Person : Mr Edward Kule.



Please get In touch with the security /shipping company and Inform me
as soon as you hear from them.

I will soon be going for a surgical operation, am only waiting and praying
God that everything work out successful so the trunk will be delivered to
you by the security company while I send you a code number which you
shall use to open the trunk and send me some little amount for the
operation.

I expect to hear from you again,

Finaly, I appreciate your effort and I am in support of your organisation
and I have decided that the 50% of this money should go into the
organisation. hope if ok?

God bless you!

Yours Mrs Elinor.


I attached the documents proof of this claim and will advise you feel free
to forward the copy to the security company if they demand for it.
And lookee... she's sent me some documentation.

Naturally I'm getting excited, so I'm about to correspond with the "security"
company to get my hands on a few mill. I hope their "fees" aren't too
high. And isn't it just a little strange that they also use a Yahoo.fr email
address?

Never mind... I'll be rich soon.

How exciting. I'm only days away from being a millionaire. I can hardly
contain myself.
From: Me
To: Edward Kule
Subject: RE : Re: RE : Collecting the trunk / Shipment Procedure.

Hello again Mr Kule,

Thank you for your enlightening email.

> Madam, We do hereby attached a Diplomatic Shipment Form with this email

Sorry but there was no attachment.

> duty fee of $550.00 ( Five Hundred And Fifty United States Dollars Only).

The Sam Morgan Trust which is raising funds to build a new orphanage for
the children of White Island does not currently have the money to spend
on duty. We experienced another minor eruption on the island last week
which brought down the shed containing all of our currency and we have
so far been unable to excavate the remains.

I'm sure you will appreciate the difficult position this places us in. Be
assured that we will send you the $550 duty as soon as we receive the
trunk.

I notice that you require the money to be sent to Miss Kim Rosine. She
wouldn't be related to Hermann Rosine, would she? I've known Hermann
for many years since he moved here from West Africa. What a strange
and wonderful coincidence that would be.

> We have arranged with the Diplomatic who will be coming to your
country with the consignment...


There will be a diplomatic coming to New Zealand? That is indeed personal
service for which I give thanks. Can you give me more information on this
person please? Is he married? How old is he? A photograph of this person
would be appreciated. When will he be arriving?

Yours in God,

Naturally I'm keeping my new friend Elinor informed.
Hello Elinor,

I'm very excited. Mr Kule is arranging shipment of the trunk. He did
mention some silly duty payment but I've explained to him that the
Morgan Trust which is building a new orphanage for the children of White
Island simply does not have money to spend on this sort of thing. I'm
sure he will understand and send the trunk immediately.

I was surprised to find that Mr Kule knows Miss Kim Rosine. I believe that
she is related to my good friend Hermann Rosine from West Africa. I can't
wait to tell Hermann about this.

And Mr Kule tells me that there will be a diplomatic coming to New Zealand
to deliver the trunk in person. I am very looking forward to meeting this
person. Just between you and me I feel that the mysterious hand of God is
behind this one.

Yours in tuitively,




******

Our Mr Kule has attached the form this time. But he's not giving me any
details of the diplomat (he got the word right this time) until I've paid up.
From: Mr Kule
To: Me
Subject: RE : Re: RE : Collecting the trunk / Shipment Procedure

Attn : **** ******,

Here we do attached the Form again.

We wish to Inform you that the trunk cannot be ship without the required
shipment fees. Whenever you re ready for the shipment, send the required
Information and the fee for us to deliver the trunk. we can't do otherwise ,
this is how we operate.

As for the Information about the diplomat, that will be given to you after you
havce finished filling and signing the Form.

Thank You

Mr Kule.
And Elinor is lining up for the thrill of the kill as well.
From: Elinor
To: Me
Subject: Urgent ***** (name)

Dear ****,

Can I have your telephone number?
That won't work at all. I'd better put the kibosh on that line of thought.
From: Me
To: Elinor
Re: Urgent ***** (name)

> Can I have your telephone number?


Hi Elinor,

Because I'm profoundly deaf I cannot use telephones and rely on email for
all of my communications with the outside world.

My friend Hermann asks if you have an email address for Miss Kim Rosine
as he'd love to catch up with her. And I'm very excited to be meeting the
diplomat who is coming to NZ. Can you tell me anything about him Elinor?

And could you ask Mr Kule to stop being silly with his payment demands.
I've already told him that the Orphans have no money to fritter away on
his "duty". He should just send the trunk immediately and we'll all be
better off.

Your friend in Jesus,

What's this? Elinor thinks I'm being frivilous.

I need your telephone number
Joking??? Unserious??? Who, me?
From: Me

Subject: Urgent *****1

> why do you sound funny and unserious??

Dear Elinor,

There is nothing at all funny about being deaf. I cannot hear conversations
and when I speak it just sounds like "Mwa mwa" noises to other people. I
cannot use a telephone. Please do not make fun of my disability.

I had a séance with my spiritual advisor, the Reverent Michael O'Donnell
last month and he predicted that I would soon meet and marry a diplomat.
I believe that God brought you into my life for this very purpose.

Bless you Elinor.
