Here’s how to deal with Nigerian scams


I received this today and decided to answer in a proper way:🤣

Dear Mr. Ziegner,

I’m broken to hear the news about my uncle Ron. He was a nice man but unlike what you tell me, he promised me his whole capital back in 2015.
I have this on writing and therefore I thrust you to transfer the FULL AMOUNT to my account.
My bank details are as follows:
IBAN: NL67ABNA06030032490
I thrust it will be on my account next week.
If your payment won’t be there in time or incomplete I will ask my incasso bureau (Moscowitch Lawyer Office, Amsterdam, the Netherlands) to follow up with you. Such an action will generally result in doubling of the amount plus registration of your companies name on our blacklisted accounts.
I thrust you will take appropriate action.
With kind regards,
Dr. Evert Wagenaar.

Hello, Evert Wagenaar

How are you doing today? Firstly, I must solicit your confidence in this transaction,this is by virtue of its nature as being utterly confidential and top secret.I write you before and i am writing on full details. Though I know that a transaction of this magnitude will make any one apprehensive and worried,but I am assuring you that all will be well at the end of the day.

Let me start by introducing myself properly to you.It may surprise you receiving this mail from me since there was no previous correspondence between us. My name is Barr. Joerg Ziegner, Esq. a personal Attorney to late (Dr. Ron Wagenaar)   He died in a car accident which occurred on the 1st of June 2017 , leaving no record of any family or relation, since then all my several inquiries here to locate any of my clients extended family relations has proved unsuccessful.

Thus I decided to search with his name through the public records to locate any member of his extended family hence I saw your name and decided to contact you after presenting your name to the Bank, i know you may not be biologically related to him but you have the same name it will be an easy transfer since the Bank has ask me to contact you as next of kin to inherit his estate.I decided to contact you to enable us retrieve this deposit from the Bank where it is deposited.

Before the car accident that claimed his life, he deposited a total amount $5,500.000.00 (Five Million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars Only) In a Bank here.

The same Bank has mandated me to present a member of his family (heir/inheritor) to make claim or the deposit will be confiscated and taken to the bureau of government as unclaimed fund. With regards to this,

I seek your consent to present you as the next of kin to the deceased so that the estate fund would be released to you and the content disbursed between us on the ratio of 45% of the total sum as gratification  for helping me champion this deal and 45% will be for me and my family while 10% I suggest will be donated to the charity organizations in any Country of your choice as these funds does not originally belong to either of us but if you feel otherwise do not hesitate to notify me.

All I require of you is your honest co-operation to enable us see this transaction through.

I guarantee that this transaction would be executed under legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. You can get across to me via Email for further clarification. Don’t get back to me as well even when you are not willing to collaborate with me so as to further my search for another partner.

I will be waiting for your kind response.

Kindest Regards.

Yours in legal matters,
