MR DEDE KUKU,
You may be suprised to recieve this letter since you don't know me personally. I am Mr DEDE KUKU the son of Dr.PETER KUKU, who was recently murdered in the land dispute in Zimbabwe. I got your contact through South Africa Information Exchange (S.A.I.E) here in Johannesburg and I decided to write for an assistance. My late father, was among the few black Zimbabwean rich farmers murdered in cold blood by the agents of the ruling government of President Robert Mugabe. For his alleged support and sympathy for the Zimbabwean Opposition party controlled by the whites.
Before his death, he had taken me to Johannesburg to deposit the sum of US$20,000,000.(Twenty Million United States Dollars) with a security and finance company as if he foresaw the looming danger in Zimbabwe. The money was deposited in a box as a consignment, to the security company to avoid seizure, and also to avoid much demurrage from the security company.
This money was given to my father by president Mugabe for investment purpose while they were still in good terms. This land problem arose when President Robert Mugabe introduced a new land act, which wholly affected the rich farmers, and some few blacks eventually vehemently condemned the modus operandi adopted by the government.
And that resulted to rampant killing and mob actions by the veterans and some political thugs, precisely, more than thirty-one (31) people have been killed. Heads of government from Western World, especially Britain and United States of America have voiced their condemnation of Mugabe 's plan subsequently, the South African Development Community (S.A.D.C) has continuously supported
Mugabe's new land reform act. It is against this background that I and my family who are currently staying in South Africa have decided to transfer my fathers's money into a foreign account.
As the eldest son of my father, I am saddled with the responsibility of seeking an account where this money could be transferred without the knowledge of my government who had tactically freezing our family wealth and South African Government seems to be playing alongside with them. we have decided not to invest this money in South Africa for the fear of seizure and encountering the
same experience in future,since both countries have almost the same political history. More so, the South African Foreign Exchange Policy does not allow such investment hence I am an asylum seeker.
As a business man I should entrust my future and that of my family on his hands, I should let you know that this transaction is risk free. Therefore if you accept to assist my family, we are willing to accept any reasonable condition you may deem necessary. And we can as well go into partnership business with you.
please reply immediately to facilitate immediate action toward the transaction.
Remember this business is highly confidential and shall be kept within you alone.Thanks.
I have to admit to being surprised to recieve your letter,
and although I'm not sure if it was meant for me or not my heart was saddenned
by your terrible tale. Let me know if I can help in any way.

Greetings from our family! We are now 100% sure that we are dealing with right person for honest assistance in moving these funds out of Africa, for our proposed family investments. Firstly, I must thank you for giving kind attention to the investment proposal, which I sent to you on behalf of our family. Actually, our family does not know you before, but we believe that a business relationship of this nature will link both families permanently together because we do not have any knowledge of foreign investments, hence our resolve to contact you for this nobletransaction. We live in South Africa as asylum seeker and because of this money. We want to transfer and invest the financial assets in yourcountry, with your honest assistance/guidance.
We can only trust you more based on your business knowledge, expertise and willingness to assist us honestly and to guide us on how to invest this money wisely and profitably, in a lucrative area of your country commerce. We believe that your country is good for investment that was why we decided to get in touch with you, in as much as we have not seen each other physically before or face to face. Kindly understand the mutual benefits, which our family attached as we have resolved to reward you 20% of the total sum for your assistance, 10% set aside to cover all local and international expenses that might occur on the course of this transaction, while 70% will be for my family investment that will beunder your care.
You have to educate us on the investment opportunity available in your country, including the government tax systems, laws and the host local government tax bylaws, as the case may be, to foreign investors. An investment agreement (deed of partnership contract) would be signed between you and our family, to further guarantee us that this money must be safe under your custody pending my arrival to meet you, for sharing based on the agreed percentage ratio and to start the execution of our propose family investment, with your honest assistance and cooperation.
Please, indicate your willingness and readiness to engage into this important investment agreement with our family. Also, indicate your acceptance of the share commission (percentage), which our family offered to you, for your expected honest assistance and cooperation with our family. Meanwhile, we are currently considering investment in: -
1.Agricultural and Agro-Allied Industries
2.Equities (stocks, bonds and shares)
3.Real estates Development
These are our family's pre-investment plan(s), which we have been working upon before we contacted you, for assistance. If these
three major categorical areas investments are not profitable in your country, kindly let us know immediately and then advice us on the more profitable areas that we must direct this money to, in order to maximize profits. Since we are not the citizens of your country, we must follow your advice guideline in order to achieve the desired success with this money, as this money remains the last resource, which will determined and guarantee the further of my family, in the absence of our late father. We do not want to go back to poor conditions of livelihood now that our father is gone. Please, be honest with us, as we do not want to mismanage this money. We want to rely on you for the establishment of this money in profitable area of business in the stable economy of your country.
We do not want to involve any third party from Africa to avoid the risky exposure of our family and this money to the public, considering the current face-off between white/black rich farmers and president Mugabe in our county, which led to the death of many white/black rich farmers including my father. Please, you must also remain very confidential about this transaction until this money is secured out of the Security Company. Meanwhile, this money is still at the Security Company, in ametal chest, where it was smartly disguised, documented and deposited as a consignment containing pre- history African artifacts from northern Zimbabwe, in order to avoid any suspicion and security implications from government authorities here in South African. The Security Company is not aware that the real contents of the deposited consignment are cash-money.
More details on the best way forward will be arranged between you and our family attorney when you confirm the receipt of this subject. Expecting your urgent response. Thanks and God bless you.
we look forward to doing business with you
you can be reaching me through this email:

Thank you for getting back to me so quickly. Your story is
a terribly sad one, my heart weeps over the loss of your father and what you
and your family must have gone through to flee the opressive Mugabe regime.
You must be incredibly brave to battle through such adversity. At least you
have that money so you can start new lives elsewhere, although it must be no
substitute for the tragic death of a family member. I will help however I can
and I will be looking to find out the best ways to invest your money for you

thank you for your understanding on this matter. my family remain grateful and ever willing to work with you. although we have not met
face to face but we are optimistic that our relationship will grow as the deal progresses.
meanwhile, we will like to know some basic details about you. are you married? what do you do for a living. in the areas of investemnet as recommended by my family which is most viable in your country. give me your telephone and fax nunbers were i can always reach when necessary.
right now the consignment is deposited a security company here in johannesburg. we do not want you to come to africa because it might be very stressful for you and also to safeguard this deal. we are making arrangement with the security company to move the consignment their office in holland. you will therefore have to travel to holland to claim the consignment.
details of the security company shall be made available to you including the certificate of deposit and the airway bill which you will use to claim the consignment.
do you have an off-shore account? you can open a non resident account in holland were you will lodge the money before transfering to your original account.
i await your responce before i instruct the security company to go ahead and dispatch the consignment.
I am so pleased to recieve your letter and very exited too
about the opportunity that has come my way through you. Truly it must be fate
that has crossed our paths in such a way. The prospect of going to Holland is
a good one for me as I am based in England and it will be little trouble for
me to get there. It would also be little trouble for me to come to Africa though.
I love Holland and have visited many times. Will you be able to meet me there?
Do you love drugs and prostitutes? I know I do. When we have this deal finalised
it would be good if you and I could celebrate together in the old fashioned
Dutch way. I am not married alas, my work takes me out on the road so I am in
a different bed every night or two. I travel the length and breadth of the country
selling medical supplies (mainly continence products) to nursing homes and hospitals
and old people's sheltered accommodation. I love old people, especially old
women and they are always so grateful for the love that I give to them. Unfortunately,
travelling as I do I do not have a fixed phone line or a fax machine, all my
business is done through email or face to face. I won't have a mobile phone
as my sister's hairdresser once told me that they give you brain cancer. She
said it happenned to a friend of her's husband's workmate. Died of it he did.
I haven't used one since. Email is the best way to get in touch with me until
we meet in Holland, oh I so hope we can meet face to face as that is my favourite
way of doing business. I will send you a photo of me when I can get in touch
with my sister who I live with when I am not on the road so she can send me
one. I love my sister so very well when I am at home. We are "special" friends.
I think family are so important don't you? Will you tell me about your family?
Are you married? I would like to get to know the people I am going to be doing
business with. Do you have a photo of yourself with them? There are many investments
in this country that are most excellent, A friend of mine recently asked if
I wanted to invest in a business he is starting in the diamond industry. I don't
want to say too much about it as all the details are as yet unfinalised but
I may invest some of my share of our business in it. I have some savings of
my own too as I work so hard but it seems I hardly get the chance to spend any!
I look forward to hearing from you

my family has agreed to do business with you. i think you are a honest and trustworthy person. i dont do drugs but for women they are just necessary evil. although my situation in this country has not allowed me hang around as i would want to. i am married with two beautiful dauthers and i love my family very much. my mother is very much alive and i have three other members of the family( 2boys and 1girl)
but it will be difficult to continue since you dont even have a phone. the security company cannot contact you on email. to make a formal contact with you, they need atleast your mobile phone.
we can still proceed with you on this deal if you get atleast a mobile phone. you can put an earpiece that will protect you against radiation, i use it myself and it is safe for your ears.
get a phone today and mail me so that i can give you further details on how we will proceed with this deal.
i wait your urgent responce.
I am so happy to hear from you that your family has agreed to do business with me. I am as honest and trustworthy a man as you yourself must be. Please forgive my mention of drugs and prostitutes, I live in an honest manner under the watchful eye of God and I only do these things where they are legal as they are in Holland, no different from buying a loaf of bread from a shopkeeper. When I die I will be able to look God in the eye and say that I have done my best to live a good life.
do I need to be contacted by the security company? Aren't you going to meet
me in Holland and then we can collect your box and go to my bank to finalise
the deal together? Surely you would want to be with me with your family's entire
wealth? It would be in your name after all. Please give me clarification on
I will look into getting a phone in the week. Maybe it wouldn't be so bad to use an earpiece style one a couple of times just to make sure we complete this transaction. I am sure we can overcome this small obstacle, I've been very successful up to now doing business face to face. Cancer scares me though, my own dear father died when I was very young from testicular cancer so I have always tried to be on the safe side.
you living in a hotel in South Africa? It must be hard to be away from your
home for so long. Please give my fondest regards to your family and keep well
thanks for your mail.
now the consignment will depart johannesburg on monday 14th and will arrive netherlands on tuesday 15th. it was shipped in your name as the beneficiary. the certificate of deposit and the airway bill shall be sent to you.
i intended to come to holland but unfortunately we do not have the resources for now. we have spent all our money for shipment.
you will go to the security company and claim the consignment and thereafter send me 5.000.00 dollars via western union so that i can meet with you in holland before we travel together to your country.
you can open a non resident account with the security company were you will lodge the fund to avoid any risk before you transfer to your original account. i will also send you all details of the security company so that you can contact them.
for the purpose of this transaction you need atleast a mobile phone. please get one immediately.
i am happy that you are a God fearing man and please continue in that manner. i hope you will not take advantage of my family and run away with our money. we are trusting you with our entire life. please dont disappoint us.
what is the percentage tax in your country? do you have an off-shore account?
Thank you for your mail and in showing me this great trust. I will not disappoint you or may the Lord visit upon me plagues the like of which have never been tolerated by mortal man.
I can fly to Holland on Wednesday the 16th and then proceed as you suggest, opening an account with the security company and then wiring you $5000 USD.
I have an account in my country that the money can go into, but to avoid paying excessive taxes on it I would like to suggest to you that after we meet in Holland we go on from there to Bermuda or the Cayman Islands where we can invest the money, thusly avoiding Capital Gains tax. The tax saving would far outwiegh the cost of the trip to the Carribean and then we could direct our assets from any countries we should choose to make our home, after all we and our families will be wealthy enough to live where ever we see fit. I am so happy that our transaction is moving on now, I will buy a mobile phone before I go to Holland and then we can finally talk.
deepest regards to you and your family
it is important that you get the mobile phone today and send me the number so that i can send it to the officials of the security company, thereafter they will contact you as soon as the consignment arrives holland.
i wait your quick responce.
I ATTACH TO THIS MAIL THE CERTIFICATE OF DEPOSIT AND THE AIRWAY BILL INCLUDING MY PASSPORT.
THE CONSIGNMENT WILL BE ARRIVING NETHERLANDS TOMORROW.
PLEASE CONFIRM IF YOU RECIEVE THESE DOCUMENTS
REPLY TO :firstname.lastname@example.org
EBOLA MONKEY NOTE: With the quality of Dede's work, I think he has a future on our team.
i sent you the required documents, please confirm if you recieve them. let me intimate you on what to expect when you get to holland.
first, you will open a non resident account with the security company. you need an initial deposit of 2,359.00 EURO to open the account with the security company.
secondly, you will require the sum of 8,800.00 EURO as handling charges. the reasons are stated in the airway bill. they are to take care of clearing charges, insurance and custom duties at the airpot. all these you will go with when travelling.
tomorrow you will contact MR. JOSEPH SMITH tel:31 630 854 303,fax:31 619 722 951 he is the DIRECTOR OF OPERATION(D.O.O) at the security company to inquire if the consignment has arrived. he will assist you in clearing the consignment from the airport and handover to you.
like i told you, as soon as you claim the fund, you will send me 5,000.00 dollars to enable me join you in holland and deliberate on the way forward.
send me also you passport for identification.
have you gotten the phone? please respond urgently.
did you recieve documents, have got a mobile phone?
I am sorry to not reply sooner but I have been so busy in the last day. I have had to book airline tickets to Holland, draw cash money from my bank to pay the fees, ensure that my affairs are in order at my end and I have finally got a phone so I will be calling the security company later today. This time tomorrow I will be in Holland! I am so very exited about it all, although I have not even told my sister whom I love so dearly. Oh what a surprise she will have coming. I would like to ask though, on one of the documents that was sent there is mention of seventy-eight thousand dollars. What is this sum for? I have drawn only from my bank the 2359.00 Euro and the 8800.00 Euro plus some extra as I dont know how long we will be in Holland. I hope they dont expect me to pay $78000!
At least all is going according to plan and the transaction will run smoothly once we have cleared up this point. I will send you the $5000.00 and we can finally meet and discuss how to proceed.
Regards to you and your family
have you called the security company? what is your arrangement so far
please update me.
HAVE YOU CALLED THE SECURITY COMPANY. YOU NEED TO INFORM THEM OF YOUR ARRIVAL TOMORROW SO THAT THEY WILL COME TO PICK YOU FROM THE AIRPORT. IF YOU DONT GIVE THEM NOTICE, THEY MAY NOT ATTEND TO YOU.
SEND ME YOUR NEW NUMBER.
INFORM ME AS SOON AS YOU FINISH SPEAKING WITH THEM.
you can also contact the director on email
it is important that you notify him before travelling.
please call him or mail him and get back to me.
I am afraid that I have already travelled, I am here in Holland! I did not get your mails about being met at the airport until I was here already. It is a great surprise to hear that the man from the security company would have come to meet me, does he give this sort of personal service to all his customers? He must be a very busy man. Does he know that it is not just African artefacts he is in custody of? I hope not. If so can we trust him? I know that the consignment is in my name and only someone with my correct identification can claim it but if he knows what he is looking after then it could turn a man's head and make him think suspicious thoughts. I have tried to phone him to no avail, I will mail him immediately I am finished writing this and get the street adress of his company and then I will go there and pick up the consignment. I have the money (I have 20,000.00 Euros) so I will be plenty able to cover all the charges. I have to admit to being a bit nervous, in a foreign city with that much cash on me. I will keep you informed as I know things myself. Do not worry my friend, all is going according to plan. Please let me know the correct details of how I am to wire you the $5000.00.
Could you please mail me as soon as possible with your full adress of your company. I will come by later and pick up something that I believe would have arrived for me from South Africa.
KEEP CALLING HIM UNTIL YOU GET HIM. THE PROCEDURE IS THAT HE WILL HAVE TO COME AND PICK YOU BECAUSE OF THE NATURE OF THIS TRANSACTION.
YOU ARE A SPECIAL CLIENT AND SO ALL THERE DEALINGS WITH YOU CANNOT BE EXPOSED, THEY HAVE TO TREAT YOU DIFFERENTLY.
MAIL HIM THE ADDRESS OF YOUR HOTEL SO THAT HE CAN COME AND PICK YOU.
ALSO TRY TO CALL HIM THIS MORNING SO THAT YOU CAN SPEAK WITH HIM.
AS SOON AS YOU RECIEVE THE MONEY SEND ME 5,000DOLLARS THROUGH MY
MR. AUSTIN NWAOKOLO
SEND ME THE INFORMATIONS SO THAT I CAN GIVE TO HIM. MORESO, SEND ME YOUR PASSPORT
i am always on my computer waiting to recieve your mail.
at this point, you must always update me on what is happening from time to time.
are you intouch with the security company?
Please try and call me to let me know the Hotel you are staying so that my protocol officer can come and pick you to the office for the clearance of your consignment.You can call me on this number:+31-630-854-303.Call me immediately because it's very important.
(Director Of Operation)
send me the telephone number of the hotel you are lodged. i want to keep in contact with you by phone.
please coperate with the officials so that everything will go on
WHAT IS HAPPENING? HOW FAR HAVE YOU GONE
PLEASE I NEED TO KNOW
won't you give me the adress of your business? I asked you a direct question
about where you are located but you want to come and do business at my Hotel?
What sort of company will not direct me to their office?
I have recieved your instructions on where to send the money. I am currently waiting for a mail back from this Joseph Smith whom I do not trust at all. I asked him where his office was located and he wanted to come to my hotel room. I will not reveal the name of my hotel or my new phone number to him or anyone else until I know where his office is. I am deeply suspicious of the way this deal is progressing now I am in Holland. I will not take the risk of being robbed of my 20,000.00 in my hotel room. Smith must let me know where his office is. For all I know for his sneaking around he has no office at all. Are you sure your mailbox is safe? If anyone knew I was here and what I am carrying then they would try and steal from me. Smith might even give me the consignment and then steal that and dispose of my body in a shallow grave in the woods and tell you I have absconded with it. This business is highly concerning. I will let you know when Smith contacts me.
I AM NOT HAPPY THAT YOU HAVE NOT RESPONDED TO ANY OF MAILS SENT TODAY.
WHY IS IT TAKING YOU THIS LONG TO RESPOND TO MY MAILS. YOU KNOW THAT WE ARE AT A CRITICAL STAGE AND WE HAVE TO KEEP IN CONSTANT TOUCH WITH EACH OTHER.
SEND ME THE TELEPHONE NUMBER OF THE HOTEL YOU ARE, I WANT TO SPAEK WITH YOU. HAVE YOU CALLED THE SECURITY COMPANY? GIVE THEM YOUR PHONE NUMBER SO THAT THEY CAN CONTACT YOU. YOU NEED TO INFORM THEM WERE YOU ARE SO THAT THEY CAN MEET WITH YOU.
THEY HAVE TO MEET WITH YOU AND BE SURE THAT YOU ARE THE RIGHT PERSON BEFORE TAKING YOU THEIR OFFICE. THIS IS THE INSTRUCTION BECAUSE OF THE NATURE OF THIS TRANSACTION. WE HAVE TO TAKE ALL PRECAUTIONARY MEASURE TO AVOID MISTAKE
PLEASE I NEED TO KNOW WHAT IS HAPPENING
am very unhappy with the way this business is progressing. Never mind the "precautionary
measures" of Smith, I am taking precautionary measures of my own. I have told
you that I will not do shady business deals in my hotel room. I am still waiting
for the adress of their office from Smith and then I will walk into their office
and show them my identification and we will do business, or I will get my arse
out of this den of thieves. I will not jeopodise my safety. I am alone in a
strange city with a hell of a lot of cash. Until I hear the information I need
from Smith I will be sitting tight in my hotel room and not discosing my whereabouts
to anybody, not even you. For all I know at this stage this whole deal could
be a scam, you and Smith could be the same person. Please, if this deal is going
to progress we are going to do it my way or I'll be back in England quick sharp.
I READ YOUR MAIL AND I CAN SEE THAT YOU ARE MISUNDERSTANDING THE WHOLE
JOSEPH SMITH IS THERE TO HELP YOU. I AM ASSURING YOU THAT YOU DONT HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT ANY DANGER. THAT IS WHY JOSEPH SMITH WAS ADEQUATELY INFORMED ABOUT YOUR CASE. HE IS THE ONLY PERSON IN THE SECURITY COMPANY THAT KNOWS THE TRUE CONTENT OF THE BOX.
HE CANNOT DISCLOSE THEIR OFFICE TO YOU JUST LIKE THAT. HE IS SCARED THAT SOMEONE MIGHT COME TO ROB THEM. THEY HAVE TO MEET YOU FIRST AND BE SURE THAT YOU ARE THE RIGHT PERSON AND THEN TOGETHER, HE WILL TAKE YOU TO THEIR OFFICE WERE THE CONSIGNMENT IS LOCATED. DONT BE AFRAID. OUR MONEY IS IN A SAFE HAND.
WE HAVE PROMISED TO COMPENSATE MR. SMITH AT THE END OF THIS TRANSACTION. MR. SMITH IS A RESPECTED DIPLOMAT AND HE WILL GIVE YOU ALL THE PROTECTION YOU NEED. GIVE HIM YOUR PHONE NUMBER AND HOTEL ADDRESS. THIS TRANSACTION INVOLVES A LARGE SUM OF MONEY AND MUST BE DONE WITH UTMOST
CONFIDENTIALITY AND CAREFULNESS.
HE WILL GIVE YOU ALL THE GUIDANCE TO MAKE SURE EVERYTHING IS SUCCESSFUL.
PLEASE DONT BE SCARED OF MR. JOSEPH SMITH, JUST DO AS HE SAID AND EVERYTHING WILL BE OKAY. HE WANT TO BE SURE THAT YOU ARE THE RIGHT PERSON BEFORE TAKING YOU TO THEIR OFFICE.
YOU ARE SAFE AND SECURED WITH HIM, JUST DO WHAT HE ASK OF YOU.
KEEP ME IN CONTACT REGULARLY
obviously did not read my mail carefully enough. I will repeat myself. I WILL
NOT DO SHADY BUSINESS IN THIS WAY. If Smith is scared of his security company
being robbed then I am all the more convinced that I will not reveal my true
location. How secure does a security company get? I would hope more secure than
one lone man in a hotel room. Why has he still not replied to the mail I sent
him? He is doing nothing to gain my trust. It is him I should be dealing with
at this stage. I am very suspicious right now and what I hear from you is that
I should trust a company that tries to hide from me. This will not do at all.
I will repeat my self again. I could be on a plane out of here so fast, I will
not risk my safety.
JUST UNDERSTAND WITH ME, THIS IS SAFE FOR THEM. TO KEEP SUCH HUGE AMOUNT OF MONEY IN THEIR OFFICE. HE IS EQUALLY SCARED AS YOU ARE.
JUST LISTEN TO ME AND DO EXACTLY AS I HAVE INSTRUCTED, DO NOT GO AGAINST THEIR PROCEDURE OTHERWISE YOU WILL DESTROY THIS TRANSACTION.
THE TRANSACTION IS NOT GOING TO BE DONE IN YOUR HOTEL ROOM, THEY JUST WANT TO MEET WITH YOU. YOU CAN MEET HIM AT THE HOTEL RECEPTION AND DISCUSS. BUT HE HAS TO BE SURE OF WHOM YOU ARE BEFORE TAKING YOU TO THEIR OFFICE.
THIS IS THE PROCEDURE.
I TRUSTED WITH MY FAMILY'S WEALTH AND I THINK YOU SHOULD TRUST ME AS WELL. YOU HAVE MY PASSPORT, I DONT EVEN HAVE YOURS BUT I TRUSTED YOU TO THIS EXTENT. I HAVE GIVEN YOU MY WORD, MR SMITH IS THERE TO HELP.
COPERATE WITH HIM
SEND ME YOUR PHONE NUMBER I WANT TO DISCUSS WITH YOU.
will not reveal any contact details until I am assured that business will be
done they way I expect it. Its my way or not at all.
us overcome this final obstacle. We are so near to completing this deal, it
would be a shame to let the actions of Smith ruin it forever. Can you be sure
that Smith would return the consignment if I went back to England?
I UNDERSTAND ALL YOU ARE TRYING TO SAY.
I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT WE HAVE A DIFFERENT KIND OF SCENERIO HERE. THIS IS A SPECIAL CONSIGNMENT AND HAS TO BE DONE BY PRECAUTIONARY PROCEDURES. MY FAMILY HAS INVESTED A LOT OF MONEY TO GET THIS DEAL TO THIS LEVEL.
I AM SURPRISED THAT YOU CANNOT GIVE ME YOUR TELEPHONE NUMBER SO THAT WE CAN DISCUSS OVER THIS ISSUE.
I HAVE ASSURED YOU THAT EVERYTHING IS IN ORDER. MR. SMITH IS ONLY ACTING BY INSTRUCTION AND LAY DOWN PROCEDURE. WE HAVE MADE AN APPRECIABLE PROGRESS IN THIS DEAL. YOU ARE JUST AT THE FINAL STAGE AND YOU WANT TO DESTROY ALL MY FAMILY HAS LABOURED FOR.
ACCORDING TO MR. SMITH, LAST YEAR A CLIENT CAME TO THEIR WAREHOSE WITH ARMED BANDITS AND MADE AWAY WITH PEOPLES VALUABLES. THE COMPANY LOST SO MUCH. TO PREVENT SUCH UGLY INCIDENT, THEY HAVE TO ADOPT SOME SERIOUS PRECAUTIONARY MEASURES. FIRST, THEY WILL PICK THEIR CLIENT FROM THE AIRPORT AND LODGE THEM IN A HOTEL, MEET WITH THEM FORMALLY BEFORE TAKING HIM TO THEIR OFFICE.
THEY ARE EQUALLY SUSPECIUOS OF YOUR ACTIONS, THEY ASKED WHY YOU HAVE TO COME DOWN TO HOLLAND WITHOUT OFFICIALLY NOTIFYING THEM, PERHAPS THEY SPECULATE THAT YOU HAVE SOME ULTERIOR MOTIVES.
THIS IS NOT SOME SHADY DEALS, YOU ARE TO MEET WITH MR. SMITH FIRST AND HE WILL TAKE YOU TO THEIR OFFICE. THEY ARE NOT COMING THEIR TO MEET YOU, ONLY MR. SMITH. JUST YOU AND HIM SO THAT HE CAN TAKE YOU TO THEIR OFFICE.
I SUGGEST THAT YOU CAN MEET HIM AT THE RECEPTION OF THE HOTEL. THERE IS NO HARM AT ALL, DONT TRY TO MAKE THIS DEAL DEALOCK BY YOUR ACTIONS.
IF YOU DONT COPERATE WITH HIM, THEN HE CANNOT ATTEND TO YOU AND YOU CAN IMAGINE HOW I FEEL RIGHT NOW. MY FAMILY IS SO NERVOUS OVER THIS ISSUE BECAUSE WE DONT KNOW WHAT MIGHT BE OUR FATE IF YOU FAIL TO CLAIM THE FUND.
I HAVE ASSURED YOU THAT THIS DEAL IS RISK FREE. JUST DO ALLOW MR. SMITH TO MEET WITH YOU SO THAT WE END THIS TRANSACTION. MY FAMILY IS TIRED OF LIVING IN PENURY, WE WANT TO GET BACK OUR LIFE. PLAESE DO THIS FOR US.
CONTACT MR. SMITH AND ARRANGE TO MEET HIM SO THAT WE CAN CONCLUDE THIS DEAL TOMORROW.
THIS IS A MINOR OBSTACLE, JUST LISTEN TO ME AND OBEY ALL THAT I TELL YOU. EVERTHING WILL BE FINE AND WE SHALL ENJOY IN THE END.
WHATEVER THE SECURITY COMPANY IS DOING IS FOR OUR OWN GOOD AND SECURITY. MR. SMITH WANT TO PROTECT YOU AND MY FAMILY
YOU FAIL TO REALIZE THIS FACT. THIS IS NOT ORDINARY CONSIGNMENT, WE HAVE 20 MILLION DOLLARS IN THERE. MR. SMITH IS AWARE OF THIS FACT AND HE IS DOING EVERYTHING TO PROTECT YOU AND THE MONEY.
LET ME TELL YOU, MY FAMILY PROMISED MR. SMITH 2% OF THE MONEY IF EVERYTHING GOES WELL. I BEG YOU JUST COPERATE WITH HIM.
HE CANNOT JUST GIVE OUT THEIR ADDRESS TO SOMEONE HE HAS NOT MET, CONSIDERING THE NATURE OF THIS TRANSACTION. IT IS FOR OUR OWN SAFETY. HE IS A DIPLOMAT, JUST RESPECT AND FOLLOW HIS INSTRUCTION.
PLEASE MEET WITH HIM TOMORROW, CALL HIM RO GIVE HIM YOUR HOTEL ADDRESS. YOU CAN MEET AND TALK AT THE RECEPTION, IF YOU ARE SCARED
WE ARE WORRIED OVER HERE. WE WANT THIS DEAL TO BE OVER BY TOMMORROW.
IT WILL BE UNFAIR TO MY FAMILY IF YOU LEAVE FOR ENGLAND WITHOUT CLAIMING THIS FUND. WE WILL LOOSE FAITH IN YOUR ABILITY TO CONTINUE THIS DEAL.
Ok, I have been out on the town last night
to think things over. Maybe I am being a bit unreasonable. You can understand
that I thought I would be turning up at a shop-fronted business to do legitimate
transaction, so I was scared when this turns out to be not the case. I know
you have a lot of money at stake in this, we both do. But to have come so far
only to turn back now and forever wonder what might have been, this I cannot
do. This city can make a man feel so at home. I have been up all night enjoying
the pleasures of Holland so I'm going to get a couple of hours sleep first and
then contact Mr. Smith and tell him where I am staying so he can come to meet
me. I trust you and am willing to do this your way if you are sure that it is
alright. Man, I love this country.
PERHAPS EVERTHING WAS MY FAULT. I DID NOT EXPLAIN TO YOU THE PROCEDURE OF THE SECURITY COMPANY BEFORE YOU TRAVEL. PERMIT ME BUT YOUR TRAVEL CUT ME UNAWARE. BEFORE I COULD KNOW IT YOU ARE ALREADY IN HOLLAND.
THIS IS NOT A GENERAL CONSIGNMENT WHICH YOU CAN BE ALLOWED TO COME AT WILL TO CLAIM. THIS IS A DIPLOMATIC CONSIGNMENT AND SO THEY HAVE LAID DOWN PROCEDURES BEFORE YOU ARE ALLOWED ACCESS TO THEIR STORE HOUSE.
FIRST THE CLIENT MUST NOTIFY THEM AHEAD OF TIME AND THEY ARE RESPONSIBLE TO TAKE FROM THE AIRPORT AND LODGE YOU IN A HOTEL. THEIR DUTY IS TO PROTECT THE LIVE AND CONSIGNMENT OF THEIR CLIENT.

I cannot send my protocol officer to pick you up today from the hotel because of series of work we have at hand.Your appointment will be tomorrow the 18th july 2003 at about 10.am,please try and stay at the lobby exactly at the appointed time.
Make sure you are with the fees for the release of your consignment and your international passport or drivers licence for indentification if not no need of your coming to the office.And any delay your consignment will be return back to Africa.
(Director Of Operation)
Dear Mr Smith
Surely you mean the 19th July? If you do
10.am will be perfectly acceptable. I will be in the lobby at that time with
correct identification and the funds.
I have been in contact with Mr. Smith,
I will be meeting him later this morning at 10.am in the lobby of my hotel.
He was too busy to meet me yesterday. All is nearly over.
I AM HAPPY THIS DEAL IS GOING TO BE FINALISED TODAY.
ALWAYS KEEP ME INFOMED
It's a pity that you disappointed yourself for telling me you will be at the lobby at Albus Grand Hotel,Amsterdam.
You are not a responsible man at all.For your information your consignment will be return back to Africa within the shortest possible time.
I have a bit of a confession to make. I
am not the man you think I am. You see I knew you were a 419 scammer from the
very start so I have been making up stories so that you waste your thieving
time. I am not in Holland, nor had I any intention of parting with any of my
hard earned money so that you didn't have to get a proper job. In the words
of the Sex Pistols "you didn't fool me - I fooled you". What were you thinking
sending me that badly doctored passport? The words that you had stuck on there
were not even straight or in the right colour. And when you told me that you
were from Zimbabwe seeking asylum in South Africa, why did your passport say
that you were a born South African national? Man, you must think people are
as stupid as you are. And as for that picture, do come on, it came straight
out of a magazine. I gave you a clue in one of my very first mails to you when
I said I am as honest and trustworthy as you are. Didn't that make you wonder?
How much time did you spend going to meet me at that hotel?
I tire of playing this game with you now,
I have another one going on, this time with a man who tells me he is a doctor
and has $20 million to get out of Nigeria the safest way possible (which apparently
is in a complete stranger's bank account - funny that).
I hope that this doesn't affect our friendship
MR. SMITH DID NOT BOTHER GOING TO THE HOTEL. HE DELAYED FOR ONE DAY TO FIND OUT THE TRUE SITUATION BEFORE HEADING TO THE HOTEL. HE WAS RELUCTANT BECAUSE YOU DID NOT GIVE YOUR PHONE NUMBER, I PERSUADED HIM TO MAIL YOU IN THE FIRST INSTANCE.
HE SCOOPED THE TELEPHONE NUMBER OF THE HOTEL AND CALLED BUT HE WAS TOLD THERE IS NO ONE BEARING YOUR NAME THERE.
BUT YOU GOT ME, I WAS CARRIED AWAY. THAT WAS A GOOD ONE.
CAN YOU GET ME A JOB? I WANT TO LEAVE THIS GAME OR DO YOU WANT TO JOIN US.
EBOLA MONKEY NOTE: I respect Dede for saying that. I really do.

I am surprised to hear from you after my little confession the other day, but I find that I am pleased to recieve your mail. Now that we can be honest with each other and what we are, maybe we are on a better footing to talk. You might like a job? What sort of job are you qualified for? What country are you in really? I am more intrigued about the thought of joining you though. I am sure there is money to be made from fleecing the rich and gullible. I am in England and would be interested as to know what my part in any job might be. I will make no promises about getting involved but I am willing to listen to any proposal you may have.
to be frank, i am in Nigeria.
i finished from a high school here in Nigeria. i am willing to leave this job if i have an alternative. i have always felt that there nothing wrong in taking money from the rich guys in the west to better our lives in africa.
over 67% of the young men in this part of the world are unemployed, what do you want us to do.
i am married and my wife works with a computer marketing firm.
if you can introduce me to some rich guys in your country so that we can make our money. you will also enjoy it, although, i dont know how rich you are. but you can do better.
ultimately, i will like to build a career for myself and settle down with my family. you will be surprised, my wife is not even aware that i am involved in this practices and i pray she never knows. i just want to make my money and quit to set up a business of my own.
you are smart, i must confess. keep it up.
my real name is Tony
EBOLA MONKEY NOTE: Sorry Dede/Tony. I have to raise the bullshit flag on this one. "i have always felt that there nothing wrong in taking money from the rich guys in the west to better our lives in africa." These scum bags rob everyone. They don't research any of their victims. The shoot off emails blindly.
I was interested to read your letter where you refer to scamming as a "job." Does it pay a regular income? Does your wife not ask where you are getting money from? I can understand that you see nothing wrong in stealing from those in the west who have so much. I feel that you are right if you had more targeted information so as not to waste time and effort sending out many emails that might fall on stony ground so to speak. I will give it some thought and see if I can think how we may narrow the field of play in this regard. How many mails are you sending out at a time now? Where are you getting lists of adresses from, is there a directory somewhere or do you buy a CD full? There must be money to be made in this game, we just need to be getting at the right people.
Scott (that is my name, just not Gorman)
IT CERTAINLY DOES NOT PAY REGULAR INCOME. I MUST ALSO CONFESS THAT IT TAKES TIME TO CONVINCE ANY ONE TO PART WITH HIS MONEY. IT IS A GAME OF TRIAL AND ERROR, HOPING AGAINST HOPE BUT IF YOU PERSEVERE, YOU WILL MAKE IT VERY BIG.
THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS TO GET SOMEONE WHO HAS NO INFORMATION ABOUT SCAMMERS,
HE MIGHT BELIEVE YOU. ANOTHER CONSTRAINT WE FACE IS GETTING THE RIGHT ADDRESSES,
WE JUST BROWSE THE NET AND SEND EMAILS INDISCRIMATELY. MOST TIMES KIDS AND
TEENAGERS ALSO RESPOND BUT THEY HAVE
NO MONEY FOR THIS DEAL.
WE ALSO BUY CD FULL, BUT AT THIS MOMENT I HAVE NO MONEY TO BUY SO I RESULT TO BROWSE THE NET AND SEND SCAM MAIL TO ADDRESS I FIND.
I ALSO TRAVEL ALOT WITHIN AFRICA BECAUSE MY GOVERNMENT IS FIGHTING AGAINST IT SO WE GO TO OTHER AFRICAN COUNTRIES TO CONTINUE OUR JOB. YES WE CALL IT A JOB BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT I DO. WHAT EVER YOU DO IS YOUR OCCUPATION. I HAVE NO CHOICE FOR NOW. I HAD A SMALL BUSINESS I WAS RUNNING BUT FOR LACK OF MONEY IT WIND UP.
THE BANKS HERE DONT BORROW SOME TO SMALL SCALE INVESTORS, WE ARE JUST LEFT TO CATER FOR OURSELVES.I AM NOT TELLING YOU THIS TO PITY ME BECAUSE I KNOW THAT ONE DAY GOD WILL HELP ME AND DELIVER ME. MY WIFE AT THE MOMENT IS PAYING OUR BILLS, WE HAVE NO CHILD YET AS WE JUST GOT MARRIED IN MARCH.
MY WIFE HAS BEEN VERY SUPPORTIVE AND I LOVE HER SO MUCH. THAT IS WHY I CANT TELL HER I AM INVOLVED IN THIS, SHE WILL BE HURT.
APART FROM SCAMING, I STILL GO ABOUT LOOKING FOR SUPPLIES, L.P.O AND OTHER PETTY THINGS TO KEEP LIFE GOING TILL I MAKE REASONABLE MONEY FROM SCAMING TO ESTABLISH MY BUSINESS AND BUILD A CAREER AND THEN QUIT. I MEAN IT, QUIT.
WHAT ABOUT YOU, WHAT DO YOU DO. WHY ARE YOU NOT MARRIED, HOW OLD ARE YOU? I AM 31YEARS, MY WIFE IS 32YEARS.
I am writing this letter to get you out of your current situation but first there is some truth that needs telling. I have been thinking over what you have been saying about how circumstances forced you into trying to achieve the money needed to start a business by scamming and well, lets face facts, you are a thief, not a victim. You speak of God but doesn't he specify "thou shalt not steal"? Those are 10 commandments not 10 suggestions you know. I could follow your logic about those in the west having more than you and apply it here. There is a man who lives down my road who has a better car than me. Is it ok if I just steal it because he has more than me? In the next road there are houses much bigger than mine, is it ok to break into them and help myself to what they have worked for? Or is the correct path to get a job myself and work towards those things? There are ways to get money that do not involve theft. You are not a stupid man, if you put the energy into finding work that you put into trying (unsuccessfully) to scam people then you probably wouldn't have to live off the charity of your poor wife as if you were her idiot child. Scamming is a lazy man's pastime. I have to go to work for another man every day to make money and hold my head high and be proud of what I am. The reason I pity you is because you can't. You are ashamed of yourself and you can't tell your wife how you spend your time. I pity her more than you.
I remind myself that this time last week you were trying to steal from me! I really should not give you this information that I have been researching over the last couple of days but I am going to. This is the big one, the job that will make you if you play it right. This man whose email I am about to give you is an American, a man so rich and stupid he doesn't even know how much money he has at any one time. He has actually been to Nigeria recently looking for a way to invest, he is that stupid. He says he has $15 billion (yes thats billion with a b!) to invest in your nest of thieves country. You, Tony, you could be the one to part this man and his money. Here is his email address email@example.com . Obviously this must be kept extra special confidential, if one of your fellow scammers got a look at this information in the cyber cafe there could well be a riot. This will be our secret. You scam him of all his money and pay the amount into your Nigerian bank account and then you just wire to me 70% of it when the funds clear and you my friend can keep the other 30% to spend on whatever you like. His name is G. Bush, but dont tell him I told you about him, tell him you are the president of Nigeria. His name is Olusegun Obasanjo. In your letter to Mr. Bush say things like "There is a great need for moral and spiritual regeneration in our society" He loves all that stuff. And don't forget you come from Nigeria if you send him any identification, like you forgot you were from Zimbabwe when you were trying to rob me.
I look forward to your successful fleecing of this man and the money I can trust you to send.
your are right, I AM A THIEF. there is no moral justification for what i am doing. but, i am not lazy.i can work when i get one. i go out in the morning chasing business and at night i scam.it is quite tedious for me but i have to do what i have to do. please dont write me off, one day i am going to be a changed man and God will be glorified.
Yeah yeah, so you are going to be a changed man are you? Are you trying to convince me or yourself? You are going to glorify God by robbing people and continuing to lie to your wife are you? If you say so. I can't see him being very impressed by such behaviour myself. A point in your favour is that strictly speaking you are not really a scammer, only a wannabe scammer. You told me yourself that it is only kids with no money who reply to your mails. (for a complete transcript of our conversation and many others follow this link http://www.ebolamonkeyman.com/index.html). Look for yourself near to the bottom of the list under Dede Kuku. Oh what fun. Maybe one day you too might have your face on a lunch box or a t shirt. You know you are never going to make any money at this game, you are only going to waste your life. Even if you were a beggar you could have more self respect than you do because then at least you would be honest about what you are.
Did you mail that American whose details I sent you? Has he replied yet? Do not forget that it was me who put you on to him and if you succeed in scamming him then you may send me some money. Once you are sure you have him then you could always post your conversations with him on the Ebola Monkey site. It would make a change to see a thread where the scammer gets anything.
WORK IN PROGRESS
COME BACK SOON!
