Dear Somchai Quint,

I am Barrister Harry Kweku, solicitor at law, personal attorney to Mr.B.J.Quint,a national Of your country, who used to work with Shell Development Company in Lome Togo, as a registered contractor. Here in after shall be referred to as my client. And it happens that the man registered to me as his personal attorney.

Unfortunately the man died in a motor accident which happened on 31st October, 2002. All occupants of the motor unfortunately lost there lives. Since then I have made several enquiries to your embassy here to locate any of my clients extended relatives, this has also proved unsuccessful. After these several unsuccessful attempts, I decided to track his last name over the Internet, to locate any member of his family hence I contacted you. I have contacted you to assist in repatriating the fund valued at US$10.5 million left behind by my client before it gets confiscated or declared unserviceable by the Security Finance Firm where this huge amount were deposited.

The Security Finance Company has issued me a notice to provide the next of kin or have his account confiscated within the next twenty one official working days. Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over 2 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 through. I guarantee that this will be executed under legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. Please get in touch with me through this email kharry@homs.cc,harrykweku@ymail.com for more details.

Best regards,
Barrister Harry Kweku,(Esq)

Canada / Ghana Scam

A new Scam email was catched by my Spam Filter. This Time with some Pictures attached to make it looking more real.

Email address used: mardiya_beloved@yahoo.com

Hi Somchai,
My name is Mardiya and I'm a 32 year old single and looking lady born in Canada but my dad was a Ghanaian and my mom a Canadian. I have never been married and have no kids but will like to get married if I meet the right man and having kids will depend on my man though I love. I'm a simple lady who wants the best for myself and everybody around me describes me as caring, loving, understanding, responsible, friendly, hardworking, compassionate and honest. I like to go for walk, read novels, watch good movies, listen to music, try new meals, spend time with my man or family, chat with friends, meet new people and explore new things. I'm (1.68m)5'6" tall and (57kg)125lbs. I'm currently unemployed but worked as a secretary for a small scaled company,but i have a problem with my manager so i decide to stop the work and find a new job with well payed.. I'm looking for a man who knows what he wants in his woman and has no time for games. A man who is honest, loving, caring, compassionate, understanding, responsible, friendly and family oriented. A man who will not love me because of what I have but because of what he sees in me. That man could be of any age or race, I have no problem with that because I believe genuine love is from the inside and not what we see on the outside. The reason why I'm currently in Ghana is because of the death of my dad. We are done with the burial rites and I'm ready to leave this country but I'm trying out my luck to see if I could meet the right man and move to him right from here as well as working on some few things. How about you, have you ever been married and do you have kids? Tell me more about yourself and let's see where we go from there.below is my pictures for you and i hope you will like it . Take good care of yourself and hope to hear from you again soon. Mardiya
