It’s a question we’ve all asked ourselves of late: Why not just put all of our investments in cash, 100 percent, just until things calm down? Those who are close to leaving the work force may be prepared enough financially to leave stocks behind for now. But investors with a time horizon beyond a few years may be doing real damage to their long-term finances by fleeing for the comfort of the safe and insured. This section is aimed at helping you find the investments that best match your personal strategy and tolerance for risk.

My dear friend from THE BANK

not just any bank, but THE BANK

From: Nadel Halioua <iamgood@voila.fr>

Subject: Kindly get back to me if Interested.


Dear Friend.

Greetings to you and your family, I am the manager of bill and exchange in THE BANK, I have a business of 5.5 Million United State Dollars to be transfer to your account for investment in your country, if you are ready to assist me get back to me, I will give you full details on how the fund will be transfer to you.

Be rest assured that everything will be handled confidentially because, this is a great opportunity we cannot afford to miss, as it will make our family profit a lot.

It has been 6 years go, that most of the greedy African Politicians used our bank to launder money overseas through the help of their Political advisers.

Most of the funds which they transferred out of the shores of Africa were gold and oil money that was supposed to have been used to develop the continent.

The Political advisers always inflated the amounts before transfer to foreign accounts so I also used the opportunity to divert part of the fund worth five million five hundred united state dollars I told you about and I am aware that there is no official trace of how much was transferred as all the accounts used for such transfers of fund at that particle time were closed after transfer.

I am the account officer to most of the politicians and when I discovered that they were using me to succeed in their greedy act, I also cleaned some of their banking records from the Bank files and no one cared to ask me for the money was too much for them to control, as I am sending this message to you, I was able to divert five point five Millions Dollars ($5.5M) which is in an escrow transit account belonging to no one in the bank, and now my bank is very anxious to know the real beneficiary of the funds is for they have made a lot of profits with the fund.

It has been more than five years ago and most of the politicians are no longer in power again and they don’t use our bank to transfer funds overseas anymore since their tenure had expired.

The $5.5 Million United State Dollars has been lying in the bank as unclaimed fund and i will soon retire from the bank immediately the fund is transfer into your account over there.

Immediately the fund has been successfully transfer into your account i will come to your country for the sharing of the fund, the fund will be shared 50% for me and 40% for you, and the other 10% for the orphanages home and poor with less-privilege people.

Please know that there is no one that is going to question you about the fund if you will comply with me and follow my instruction which will help us a lot to achieve this goal for everything is well secured.

Please indicate your interest in this transaction by replying back and if you are not interested do not waste your time to reply kindly delete my message from your box ok.

Waiting to hear from you soon.

Yours Faithfully,
Mrs Nadel Halioua.

I see a theme

I’m definitely seeing a repeat of certain themes here, can someone be original? I think I have seen this guy before, however his email address is different. He didn’t even change his letter.

From: Danladi Yousuf
To: . <.@yahoo.com>
Sent: Friday, May 18, 2012 3:59 AM

I know that this letter may come to you as a surprise, I got your contact address from the computerized search. My name is Mr Danladi Yousuf, I am the Bill and Exchange (assistant) Manager of Bank of Africa Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. In my department I discovered an abandoned sum of eleven million five hundred thousand United State of American dollars (11.5MILLION USA DOLLARS) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer Mr Kurt Kuhle from Alexandra Egypt who died along with his family in Siber airline that crashed into sea at Isreal on 4th October 2001.
Since I got information about his death I have been expecting his next of kin to come over and claim his money because we can not release it unless somebody applies for it as the next of kin or relation to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines, but unfortunately we learnt that all his supposed next of kin or relation died alongside with him in the plane crash leaving nobody behind for the claim. It is therefore upon this discovery that I decided to make this business proposal to you and release the money to you as next of kin or relation to the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and I don’t want the money to go into the bank treasury as unclaimed bill.
Am contacting you because our deceased customer is a foreigner and a Burkinabe can not stand as a next of kin to foreign customer. The banking guidelines stipulate that the fund should be transferred into the bank treasury after 10 years if nobody is coming for the claim. I have agreed that 33% of this money will be for you as foreign partner in respect to the provision of your account for the transfer, 2% will be set aside for expenses that might occurred during the business and 65% would be for me, after which I shall visit your country for disbursement according to the percentage as indicated.
Please I would like you to keep this transaction confidential and as a top secret as you may wish to know that I am a bank official.
Yours sincerely,
Mr Danladi Yousuf.
