We, at Tectono Business Review, got this e-mail from an internet fraudster using the name: Isaac Miller ( Below is the body of the e-mail:



I am indeed sorry for contacting you through this means. However, I understand that the Internet has been insulted by scam and fraudsters who tries to rip off people of their hard earn money, but I am a devoted man, and I cannot lie to you because it is against my ethics and moral believe and also a sin against and I believe it is only a day that people meet and become great friends and business partners. I got your contact while looking for a reliable, honest and a trustworthy person to entrust this huge transfer project with. My name is Mr. Isaac Miller, I'm a Bank Officer here in National Bank for Industries Lome Togo . I have a business proposal for you which is in connection with your name and both of us are going to benefit from this transaction which will be of our interest and benefit to our both families. In 2007 a customer whose surname is the same as yours and has your country in his file as his place of origin made a fixed deposit for 36 months valued at US$30,000,000.00 with my bank. I was his account officer before I rose to the position of Managing Director and the maturity date for this deposit contract was 27th of September 2010. Sadly the customer was among the death victims in the September 2009 earthquake in Indonesia that left over 1,200 people dead while he was there on a business trip.


Since the last quarter of 2010 until today the Board of directors of my bank has been finding means to reach him so as to ascertain if he will roll over the deposit or have the contract sum withdrawn. When I discovered that this will happen, I have tried to think of a procedure to preserve this fund and use the proceeds for business. Meanwhile directors have been trying to find out from me the information about this account and the owner, but I have kept it closed because I know that if they become aware that the customer is late they will take the funds for themselves and therefore am seeking your co-operation to present you as the one to benefit from his fund at his death since you have the same name so that my bank headquarters will pay the funds to your account.


I have done enough arrangement inside my bank and I only have to put in your details into the information network in my bank computers so as for your name to reflect as his next of kin. If you concur with this proposal, I intend for you to retain 50% of the funds while 50% shall be for me. I will send to you, my passport, and other documents related to the transaction as soon as you get back to me showing your interest in these transactions for us to proceed. Bear in mind that there is no risk in this transaction because this transaction will be done under a legitimate arrangement that will protect me and you against any beach of law. If you accept to work with me, I want you to state how you wish us to share the funds in percentage, so that both parties will be satisfied. If you are interested, contact me as soon as you receive this message so we can go over the details. Thank you in advance.



Regards, Mr. Isaac Miller

Managing Director.
