We like this statement, especially the last part about USD 120million.
Most victims of such scams are blind the the storyline but when they
see the USD 120million, their eyes brightened up.
Everybody was hoping that they get lucky some time in their life. And when they received such an email, they would thought that it is real and started to get greedy.
In the stocks market, have you ever heard the saying “Bulls make money, Bears make money, but Pigs get slaughtered“. The scammers are out to trick the greedy pigs. They will ask the greedy pigs to send money (fees) to them to help in the money transfer. This is a scam. They don’t have the USD120million – NO THEY DON’T! And any money that you sent will be lost forever. The police cannot help you to recover the money.

I am Dr.Allen Boma, a medical director attached to the Johannesburg
general hospital, South Africa. I have very important information I
wish to share with you.Please I got your email through South african
Chamber of Commerce and I feel quite safe dealing with you in
this important business. Though, this medium (Internet) has been
Greatly abused, I choose to reach you through it Because it still
remains the fastest medium of Communication.

be treated as Such.
At first I will like to assure you that this Transaction is 100% risk
and trouble free to both Parties. We Want to Transfer out some amount
of money from south Africa.
On the 24th of December 2003, we admitted a patient with terminal
stage of brain cancer. It was found on examination that the cancer has
metastasized extensively and that the woman had no chances of
survival. Thus our medical team informed the patient that her death
would be a matter of weeks.
I was assigned to manage this patient and I was able to have her
history and eventually developed friendship with her. It was then that
I learnt from the woman that she was married to MOBUTO&nb sp;SESE
SEKO, the former president of ZAIRE, who was the richest man in Africa
before he died. Her name is MRS AGNES SESE SEKO, the fourth wife of
the late president of ZAIRE, Since the death of her husband, she came
to South Africa with her only son where they were granted political
asylum by the government of South Africa. Few days before MRS SESE
SEKO died, she informed me of the money her late husband deposited for
her in a private security company in Europe.
He begged me to assist /collect this money and transfer it to a trust
account overseas for her only son who is only 10 year as of then, She
told me how she was abandoned by parents has no living relation
capable of taking care of her only son and how she would not want her
son to live in Africa alone. She therefore begged me to do everything
within my powers to send her son to an overseas country where he will
live a safe life and have a quality education.She told me that the
amount of money involved is US$120M
The money is currently deposited as diplomatic consignment in a
private security company in Europe. Before she died, MRS SESE SEKO
handed me over all the documents to collect the money from the
security company. She also signed a transfer of ownership transferring
the ownership of the money to me. I have crosschecked with the
security company and have confirmed that the money is intact and safe
in the security company.
MRS. SESE SEKO and I then agreed that her son and me would share the
money after her death if I agree to help her. This is why I am
contacting you, I shall want you to assist me transfer this money to
an overseas country where we can deposit this money for her son in a
safe bank account according to MRS. SESE SEKOS desires. I shall also
want you to assist me to relocate the little boy to your country even
if it means that I will join him with my family to settle in your
country. As of now, the son is living with my family here in
I beg you to treat this transaction with high confidentiality. The
medical board of South Africa will subject me to a hectic
interrogation if they get hold of this information, which may lead to
the money being confiscated. But I must assure you that this business
bears no risk whatsoever. I have perfected every arrangement to bring
about a very successful transfer in the most legal way. All I require
from you is your co-operation. I suggest that when this money is
successfully transferred to your account, that we share the money as
