I AWAIT YOUR URGENT RESPONSE!!!

Dear Friend,

I am Maureen Haughey, widow of former Taoiseach of the Republic of
Ireland, Charles J. Haughey and daughter of former Taoiseach of the
Republic of Ireland and heir to de Valera, Sean F. Lemass.

The Press has written a lot about unresolved mysteries and corruption
surrounding Charles's dealings, but I tell you something, my Charlie was a
good man. He was human and he did whatever he did. People marvel why I
stuck with Charlie and didn't speak during the mess that came with the
exposure of his affairs with Terry Keane (I just hate to think of her). I
had to stand by him through the tribunal times.... lt was to do with what
I'm doing now. No one knew the details of all Charlie's financial dealings
but me. I remain the only one who knows all who got loans from Charlie and
didn't come back to pay when he was disgraced. I am the only one who knows
about these monies and the other Ansbacher accounts.

I write to you, an old weary woman, sick and almost tired of living. My
end is near but I will not depart until my final mission is accomplished
and I also write this with an unshaken belief in the power of aspirations
and dreams of a human being. The Irish government thinks it can shave and
reduce me to a poor widow but I have the winning ace. A few years ago,
when we weren't sure if my Charlie would be convicted, he kept some money
in trust for me in a Security and Finance company. He did not open the
account in our names so it will not be traced to us to enable the past
remain the past. The name on the account is Cedric de Vregille. I never
thought Charlie would leave me so soon and it never occurred to me to ask
if this name were fictitious or not or a name of any of his friends. I
have tried to find this man but to no avail. The amount he deposited in
this name is ?30,000,000 (Thirty Million Euros). I want an honest person
to come forward and lay claims to this amount, moreover to use the funds
as instructed by me. I have all the documents needed, I just need a face
for the name.

I have mapped out 10% of the funds for you, as you will help us (you and
I) execute this job. As soon as I receive your acceptance for this work I
shall give you necessary details of my solicitor who will facilitate the
release of the funds in your name.Please reply me via my personal
email:(mhaughey53@googlemail.com)

For my security and the sake of letting sleeping dogs lie, I strongly
advice that you keep our dealings confidential. You can read more about my
Charlie from:

PAYMENT NOTIFICATION OF YOUR FUNDS.

Attn: Beneficiary,

Hello. We have decided to bring to your attention, the fact that we have done everything necessary to make sure payments from the debt remittance account are made to the Bonafide Beneficiaries. I am informing you of an attempt by some men to collect your payment on your behalf. I had to ask them why they came to see me in person and they said that they came to collect your inheritance/contract funds payment sum of $7.5M which rightfully belongs to you as shown in your file with us, on your behalf and by your authorization.

However, I am writing you this email to find out from you if you actually sent them. Note that they actually tendered some vital documents which proved that you actually sent them to collect these funds. Below is the list of documents which they presented.

1) Letter of administration
2) Order to release
3) High court injunction

Due to the nature of my job, I cannot afford to make any mistake in releasing the funds to anyone except you who is the recognized and true beneficiary to these funds. I want to hear from you before I order the release of the funds to these men who claim to be your representatives because they will be back to my office next week. I decided to carry out this decision based on my work experience and this is a risk I cannot take because I have not heard anything from you.

Kindly direct your response to the private email address of my boss,Prof. Charles Soludo, the executive governor of the central bank of Nigeria Cbn, below for quicker deliberation and response from him on the release of your funds to you. Please remember to indicate your personal phone number he can reach you on in your response, also it is better you call him on his number immediately to let him know if you sent these people or he should stop the payment.+234 7028328347 please don,t fail to call him.

Email: rwalter001@sify.com

Note that for security reasons you have been assigned a code/password which is {TT7270CBN}, please note that this code is the reference number for your transfer and it's being disclosed to you alone, guard this jealously and all your email response should carry this code as the subject.

Yours faithfully,

Dr Richard Walter.

....well, would you look at that. It seems "Vicki" (at least that's what her email address says her name is, despite the fact that she seems to sign her emails with two or more different aliases) is not only responsible for African Diamond Banks but the UK Lottery as well!

Nice work if you can get it....

I have had some of these people get upset at me when I call there bluff one guy sent me an email saying he was "tired of this shet" of course I counld not let that mis spelling go by I had to correct it and send it back to him! Lets not leave out the phony check scam. They send you a counterfit check and you are to take what every amount out and send the rest Western Union to them or their contact. The one I loved was the one drawn on Wells Fargo Bank the Account holder was the "Bank Manager Wells Fargo Bank" in one state. While being drawn on a Wells Fargo Bank in California! I gave that one to my Local Wells Fargo Bank belive me it was Bad real bad looking!

Ok I need to admit I am a bad boy I have made up some yellow tags and have been sending them out to the scammers. Who want the yellow tag fee!
One other note the Western Union scam this is a new twist and not bad either a very good scams I have to give them credit on this one! You ge the email saying that you have been send some money via Western Union and they even will send you a Money control Number that is good now all you need is the answers to the security question. You are to send the required amount of money to the manager of the Western Union Office By Name of course in Some Africa Country and they will send you the answer to the question! I went to the Western union Web site via outside link and everything came back ok! The sender name and the money control number and amount was good! But I took it a step further and eamiled Western Union all the information and guess what the transfer did not have my name on it!
