Barrister Kufa sent me a letter exactly the same with my name on it. Intially I offered to help him find the true relatives and asked him, "what happened to the wife's relatives. I sent Barrister kufa the scam site where all the other barristers are located and still he insists on sending a form for the bank. Why can't someone catch him or her.

Today is November 30th, 2006, and I got a similar letter from Barrister Steven Niang. But I guess the offer went down cause now it's 3.75 million. People, please do your research before responding to anything that can make you an easy dollar!!!

I also got a letter from Barrister Steven Niang with similar language and a relative I had never heard of. He seems persistent and urgent that I get him some information immediately.
Also, how am I the "next of kin" when my father and grandfather have heard nothing from Mr. Niang?

A few days ago I received a similar letter of Barrister Kokou Mawulolo.

He made an unfortunate mistake, because he had sent me one a few years ago.

From what i know now, he or they are operating from UK instead of lome togo. But i'm not sure, they use Yahoo e-mail, which i find hard to track down.

I replied his e-mail and suggested to type his own name in to Google and see what pops up.. I advised him to cease his efforts. Overhere in the Netherlands the authorities are making plans to change the law to deal with this stuff, but its no priority, so it'll take another ten years.

Still people fall for it, though...

We have recently been a victim of Barrister Steven Niang. He sent us an email offering us a ministry position at a Radisson Resort in Lome, Togo West Africa at a brand new 5 star resort. He found our resume at youthspecialties.com

Be ware he's very persistent and even has been calling our cell phone that is listed on our resume.

Today is 10 January 2007. I got the same letter as the others in this forum. It's got a letter and the following information: From Barrister Steven Niang.
Office address No.11 Rue Du Boulevard,
Home address No. 14 Rue Des Evalas,
Lome Togo, West Africa.
Phone number XXXXXX.
Sounding too good to be true, i decided to do some reasearch. I don't buy this scam, but i thought i'd second all the comments in this forum. Thanks for posting your comments and warning. Take care.

What does this have to do with a child enticement case? Oh, well. It is a public forum. We should change the name to "Did You Get Scammed?" I have 5 daughters and it really freaks me out when I hear about child enticement arrests. Thank God for the police stings!!!! Go get those low life scum bags!!!!

All occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost there lives. Since then I have made several enquiries here to locate any of my clients extended relatives, this has also proved unsuccessful.
After these several unsuccessful attempts,I decided to search through with his name which motivated me to contact you, to locate any member of his family hence I contacted you. I have contacted you to assist in repartrating the fund valued at US$18.5 million left behind by my client before it gets confisicated or declared unserviceable by the Security Finance Firm(bank) where this huge amount were deposited. The said Security Finance Company has issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have his account confisicated within the next twenty one official working days Since I have been unsuccesfull in locating the relatives for over 3 years now, I seek the consent to present you as the next of kin to the deceased since you have the same last names, so that the proceeds of this account can be paid to you.
Therefore, on receipt of your positive response, we shall then discuss the sharing ratio and modalities for transfer. I have all necessary information and legal documents needed to back you up for claim. All I require from you is your honest cooperation to enable us see this transaction goes through and for more details.
KINDLY GIVE ME A SHORT CALL AFTER GOING THROUGH THIS MAIL. TELEPHONE NUMBER..........

The purpose of this scam is to get you to empty your bank accounts by depositing the forged checks, that these criminals send to you, into your bank account and thus they gain access to your private information and steal everything you have. DO NOT BE FOOLED! THIS IS NOTHING BUT A WORLDWIDE SCAM!!! I too was sent an email promising easy money and received a check for $3500.00. After checking with the bank that the check was written on I was informed that it was indeed a forgery. I turned the forged check and all other information into the U.S. Secret Service. A word to the wise: If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

I received several of those emails too lol... fortunately I get paid to sit on my thumbs, so I decided to have a lil fun with this dumb@$$. If you have extra time to kill at work, email them back and ask questions (it sure makes the day go by fast!). You already know it's a scam, so just keep emailing them back and waste their time like they're wasting yours, unless of course you have better things to do (i.e. Sudoku, solitaire, etc...)lol. Once you get tired or bored of the games, email them back and tell them that you contacted the "financial firm" in question and that they are sending you a check for whatever amount they claim is yours to keep. Then take their email addy and put it on several porn site subscription services so they get annoying spam as you're receiving as well!

I won't say anyone deserves to get scammed, b/c no one does. Seriously though... if you think someone is going to search for you to give you millions of dollars just b/c your last name is the same as some fictional character that died, maybe you should refrain from using the internet!
