Your 419 Mail Roundup

| | Comments (0)
Are you ready for more 419 missives?

Of course you are. Plenty of winning lottery tickets, fictitious banks, a wonderfully sick "Robert Mugabe" themed mail and, er, someone called "Captain Frank Bojo" after the jump...

Hello Dear,
 My name is Blessing Abavana, the elder daughter of Mr. paul Abavana of Zimbabwe, I am 17 years old with my younger brother (Micheal), we are in Ghana as refuge/asylum since we lost our parents because of the recent war that occurred in our country.please do go through this web page for better understanding with full details:
 I am looking for one  who will honestly assist my younger brother and I to realize our inherited funds into your account and as well as invest it into a lucrative business.
During the recent war against the farmers in Zimbabwe from the supporters of our President, Robert Mugabe to claim all the white -owned farms to his party members and his followers, he ordered all the white farmers to surrender all their farms to his party members and his followers.
 My father being one of the few rich and successful black farmers in our country was also victimized because of his opposition to Mugabe's policies. And because he did not support Mugabe's ideas, Mugabe's supporters invaded my father's farm and burnt everything in the farm, killed my father and made away with a lot of items in my father's farm. This action was taken because my late father felt the growing tension on the farm issue, but I guess he never anticipated the tragedy that brought their brutal and sudden death.
 However with the benefit of hindsight, owing to the looming but deteriorating crisis in my country, Zimbabwe, my father, before his unfortunate death deposited with International Commercial Bank (ICB) here in Accra Ghana the sum of US$ 35MUsd (Thirty Five Million United States Dollars), with the sole aim of acquiring and buying some dredging equipments in setting up of a dredging firm with his partner. With his death and all his assets seized at home and accounts frozen, the family is now in a very difficult situation.
 After the death of my father, my brother and I escaped to the Republic of Ghana where he had deposited the money in the Bank . And we were permitted to reside here as Political Refugees.
 So Because of our present and unpleasant status here we decided to contact an overseas firm / individual that can assist us to move this money out Of Ghana because, as asylum seekers, we are not allowed to operate any financial transaction of such amount within Ghana and also to assist in providing me and my brother a permanent residential permit in your country after the money must have been transferred to your account.
We have agreed to offer you 30% of the total sum for your assistance, and the rest will be for my brother and I, to Invest in your country under your assistant
All I want you to do is to furnish me with the below information including your readiness to assist me achieve this transaction for investment purposes in your country under your supervision. Kindly re-confirm to me the followings:

1) Your Full Name:
2) Phone, Fax and Mobile
3) Profession, Age and Marital Status.
4) Nationality
 I have to re-assure you that this transaction is 100% risk free and should be treated with absolute confidentiality. All the vital documentation/certification that has to do with the origin of the fund is with me for the security reasons.And I will send them to you when we progress.And I guarantee you that this fund is not government fund, drug money, or from arms deals.
 I will detail you more about  the bank  immediately I receive your acceptance response. I hope this is the beginning of a prosperous relationship between us.Thanks and God bless you

Blessing/Micheal Abavana

Dear Friend,

Compliment of the new year, I have been waiting for you since to come down here and pick your Bank Draft which my boss left with me before he travelled to England but I did not hear from you since that time till today. I went to the bank to confirm whether the draft is getting close to expire as it had been long time my boss issued the draft. The director of the bank told me that before the draft will get to you, that it will expire. Then I told him to help me and cash the cashier bank draft of $1,500.000.00 to cash payment.

However, I have successfully cashed the draft and packaged it in a box and have registered it in the Fedex Express Company Service here in Benin Republic because I will travell to see my boss in England and will not come back till August 20th 2008. You have to contact the Fedex Express Company Service to know when they will deliver your package to your address. I have paid for the delivering charges and insurance fees. The only money you have to send to them is their security keeping feeswhich is USD$135.00 USD to receive your package. Don't be deceived by any body.

This is their Contact Address;
Attn: Cheif Mr. George Kobra (Director)
Tel:  +229-9799 2240

Send them your contacts information to enable them locate you
 immediately they arrived in your country with your package.

This is the information they needed from you.

1. Your full name:.....
2. Your shipping/home address:.....
3. Your tel no #......
4. Your current office tel no #
5. A copy of your passport.

Try to contact them as soon as possible to avoid increasement of the security keeping fees Note; I didn't tell the Fedex Express Company Service that it's money inside the box, I registered it as a church of a Church Minister Materials. This is to avoid delay or any upfront problem during the delivery. So, do not let them know that the package contents money. Do let me know as soon as you received your package. You will contact  me only through e-mail as my phone is no longe available now that I am out from our country. Contact me at and I will reply as soon as I can.
I wish you and your family Long Life,
Prosperity and Happy 2008.

Thanks and Remain Blessed.

Yours sincerely,
Mr.Samuel Dunbar

(Honestly, if you contact FedEx they'll give you tons of money....)


That's your lot for another week....
