    Attn: Beneficiary,

    I am Mr. Ron Mills, the personal secretary to the FBI Director; Robert S.Mueller III. After proper investigations, we discovered that your impending payment that have been withheld by imposters, claiming to be Mr. Mr.Lamido Sanusi (The New Governor of the Central bank of Nigeria), Mr. Patrick Aziza, Mr. Frank Nweke, None existing officials of the Oceanic Bank of Nigeria and Zenith Bank, UK winning Lottery, Andy Lear of Hsbc bank, Coca-Cola winning lottery and among a list of others is now under our custody with the help of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the Local Police Force.

    Investigations revealed that you have spent a lot on your personal earned money just to conclude the successful transfer of your funds to your nominated bank account by obtaining transfer documents as requested by the imposters, costing you a lot of money but all to no avail.

    The FBI had to send some financial crime investigators from our head quarters in Washington DC to Africa in other to carry out proper investigation, after receiving series of other reports similar to yours as you are not the only person awaiting the legal transfer of funds from Africa.

    The FBI has giving authority to the International Monetary Funds (IMF) to assist the Federal Ministry of Finance and all the organization involved; such as the Central Bank, Zenith Bank, and Legit lottery organizations to immediately commence with the compensation of all the beneficiaries awaiting the successful transfer of their funds.
    With the help of some of the best Internet investigators attached to the FBI, we traced your information from the Internet as one of the beneficiaries awaiting the successful transfer of funds to your nominated account.
    I am pleased to inform you that a meeting was held as regards the best way to carry out with the compensation exercise for transparency and most especially to avoid reoccurrence of the delay in transferring your funds and the high cost of procuring transfer documents and came to a final conclusion as all head of organizations involved was duly represented.
    It was approved to be issued to you as a valid international ATM card cashable at any ATM machine designation in the world. The ATM account has already being credited with two million, five hundred thousand United States dollars. ($2.5, 000, 000.00USD), with a daily Limit of withdrawal of Ten thousand United States Dollars. ($10.000, 00USD).The ATM card has already being packaged and approved to be delivered to your door step via express courier delivery service.

    Contact Mr. Fred Owen {Our FBI ATM Rep.} at the ATM PAYMENT CENTER and reconfirm your delivery information as stated below and your security code with five digit (24006) number has to be submitted alongside with your delivery information for security reasons.


    NAME: Fred Owen
    PHONE: 009 234-809 155 3703

    NOTE: Under normal circumstances you are suppose to come and collect your ATM CARD in person and sign some documents as proof of the collection of your ATM CARD but the IMF and the Finance Ministry insisted that you pay for the delivery charges of your ATM CARD via western union money transfer, which will cost you only $180USD to cut down travel expenses in other for the western union payment receipt and the receipt of payment of $180USD to the nominated courier company that will carry out with the delivery to your door step to be documented in your file as proof your collection. We hope that is very clear. A receipt to this effect will be sent to you and a copy kept in your file for future documentation.

My residential address is as follows 3213 290 th Street, Blockton, Iowa 50836 , United States , am thinking of moving since I am now wealthy. I am one of those that took part in the Compensation in Nigeria many years ago and they refused to pay me, I had paid over $42,000 while in the US , trying to get my payment all to no avail.

    So I decided to travel down to Nigeria with all my compensation documents, And I was directed to meet Mr. David King, who is the member of COMPENSATION
    AWARD COMMITTEE and a Human Rights Activist (Lawyer), and I contacted him and he explained everything to me. He said whoever is contacting us through emails from ,unitedkindom, spain, holland, and the asia region
    are fake.

    He took me to the paying bank for the claim of my Compensation payment. Right now I am the happiest woman on earth because I have received my compensation
    funds amounting to $1.500,000.00 Moreover, Mr.David King, showed me the full information of those that are yet to receive their payments and I saw your
    email as one of the scam victims, that is why I decided to email you to stop dealing with those people, they are not with your fund,

    They are only making money out of you. I will advise you to contact Mr. David King.

    You have to contact him directly on this information below.

    Name: Mr. David King (Barrister)

    You really have to stop dealing with those people that are contacting you and telling you that your fund is with them, it is not in anyway with them, they are only taking

    Advantage of you and they will dry you up until you have nothing.

    The only money I paid after I meet Mr. DAVID KING was just $310 for the paper works, take note of that.

    Thank You and Be Blessed.

I am suffering from a long time cancer of the Lungs which also affected my hearing ability and my brain, from all indication my conditions is really deteriorating and it is quite obvious that, according to my doctors they have advised me that I may not live too long, this is because the cancer has gotten to a very bad stage.

    I was contacted today by someone claiming that I had won 2,000,000 USD from a Pepsi Max Sweepstakes. It was extremely compelling, coming from someone and I almost fell for it. I actually had applied for a grant/contest from Pepsi a couple years ago, and for a few minutes I was really excited! Until they got to the part where they were about to hit me up for money to pay a courier to bring me the check. Then all of a sudden the story changes~ I had won a Euro Raffle for 2,000,000 euros.
    I would like to report this to Pepsi. If anyone should prosecute, I think Pepsi should stick up for their product and the brand they have built from the ground up.
    This is a copy of the verification form they sent me in the first e-mail. ===>
    It seems legit for the simple fact that they are not asking for anything more than a verification of my identity and contact information.
    I am sure that they found me through all the attempts I have been making to secure funds lately. My small family and I are being evicted from out home, we barely have enough to eat and pay utilities since I lost my job last month. I wish nothing more than to get to a point where I can give back one day to people in similar situations or worse than ours. In a difficult time, when it feels like the whole world is against you, falling for a scam like this could cause a poor family pure devastation. It is inexcusable, and people need to act! I was so refreshed when I found this site!
    Thank you for what you are doing,

    This is what got sent to me Dear Beneficiary:


    This is to bring to your notice that because of the impossibility of your fund transfer through the Western Union and Money-Gram network, we have credited your total of $ 3.6millon Usd  valid fund into an (ATM Card Number 506119102227445160) and I have paid the re-activation  fee and the delivery of the ATM Card To you,I paid it because the ATM Card worth of $3,600,000.00 which I have registered it delivery yesterday has less than Seven days to expire in the custody of the EMS Company and when it expires, the money will  go into Federal Government treasury account.

    With that we decided to help you pay off the money so that the ATM Card will not expire, because I trust that when you receive your ATM Card definitely you must pay me back my money and even compensate me for helping you.

    Now I want you to contact EMS Express at:( With your physical address you desire the delivery to be made so that they can deliver your ATM Card to your designated address without any delay.

    Like I stated earlier, the crediting re-activation,delivery and the company registration charges has been paid by me, but we did not pay their official keeping fees since they refused,they refused and the reason is that they do not know when you are going to contact them and the demur- rage might have increased by then, They told me that their keeping fees is $30 per day only,and I deposited it yesterday 24th JUNE 2013.

    Below is the Contact Information of the EMS, Express Customer Service Director Mr.JERRY BROWN, Email Address online: ( Tel: +229- 67 059 411 Contact them today and also send them the security official keeping charge to avoid increase of their fees and let me know once you receive your ATM card, Important Notice, your ATM CARD package was registered as a gift so that the delivery agent will not know the content of your package okay.

    Below is the Registration Information’s of your ATM CARD SHIPMENT,
    SECURITY CODE SCAT/2012fedex/396/
