"419" Scam – Advance Fee / Fake Lottery Scam

The so-called "419" scam is a type of fraud dominated by criminals from Nigeria and other countries in Africa. Victims of the scam are promised a large amount of money, such as a lottery prize, inheritance, money sitting in some bank account, etc.

Victims never receive this non-existent fortune but are tricked into sending their money to the criminals, who remain anonymous. They hide their real identity and location by using fake names and fake postal addresses as well as communicating via anonymous free email accounts and mobile phones.

Keep in mind that scammers DO NOT use their real names when defrauding people.
The criminals either abuse names of real people or companies or invent names or addresses.
Any real people or companies mentioned below have NO CONNECTION to the scammers!

Dear friend

As you read this, I don't want you to feel sorry for
me, because, I believe everyone will die someday.My name isJABARI MOZES
a merchant in INDONESIA,I have been diagnosed with Esophageal
cancer .It has defiled all forms of medical treatment, and right now
I have only about a few months to live, according to medical experts. I
have not particularly lived my life so well, as I never really cared for
anyone(not even myself)
but my business. Though I am very rich, I was never
generous, I was always hostile to people and only focused on my
business as that was the only thing I cared for. But now I regret all this as I
now know that thereis more to life than just wanting to have or make all
the money in the world.I believe when God gives me a second chance to
come to this world I would live my life a different way from how I
have lived it. Now
that God has called me, I have willed and given most
of my property and assets to my immediate and extended family members
as well as a few close friends.I want God to be merciful to me and
accept my soul so, I have decided to give alms to charity organizations, as
I want this to be one of the last good deeds I do on earth. So far, I
have distributed money to some charity organizations in the U.A.E, Algeria
and Malaysia. Now that my health has deteriorated so badly, I cannot do
this myself anymore.
I once asked members of my family to close one of my
accounts and distribute the money which I have there to charity
organization in Bulgaria and Pakistan, they refused and kept the money to
themselves. Hence, I do not trust them anymore, as they seem not to be
contended with what I have left for them.

The last of my money which no one knows of is the huge
cash deposit of eighteen million united states dollars that I have
with a finance/Security Company abroad. I will want you to help me collect this deposit and
dispatched it to charity organizations.

I have set aside twenty percent for you and for your
time.

My e-mmail address is:jabarmozes@netscape.net

God be with you.

regards
