Romance scam letter(s) from Mariam Murphy to Jeremy (Canada)
Dearest Beloved One
Many thanks for your understanding, I appreciate your kind gesture to find time to chat with me.First and foremost and brief self introduction,I am Mariam Murphy,23years old and the only daughter of my late parents Mr.and Mrs. Murphy.
My father was a highly reputable busnness magnate-(a cocoa merchant)who operated in the capital of Ivory coast during his days It is sad to say that he passed away mysteriously in France during one of his business trips abroad year 12th.Feb. 2003.Though his sudden death was linked or rather suspected to have been masterminded by an uncle of his who travelled with him at that time.But God knows the truth!
My mother died when I was just 11 years old,and since then my father took me so special. Before his death on Febuary 12 2003 he called the secretary who accompanied him to the hospital and told her that he had a sum of $2.5 million US DOLLARS (two million five hundred thousand USD)deposited in a suspence account with one of the local banks here in Abidjan, Ivory Coast.
He also said he used my name to Deposit the fund with the bank as his only daughter, as well as the next of kin to the fund. He also explained to me that it was because of this wealth that he was poisoned by his business assocaites, That I should seek for a foreign partner in a country of my choice where I will transfer this money to and use it for investment purposes.
I want you to assist me in clearing this fund into your account overseas as a beneficiary of the fund,and also use it for an ivestment purpose.
I am just 23 years old and a high school leaving certificate holder and really don't know what to do.Now I want an account overseas where I can transfer this funds. This is because I have suffered a lot of set backs as a result of incessant political crisis here in Ivory coast.The death of my father actually brought sorrow to my life.
Dearest one,I am in a sincere desire of your humble assistance in this regards Your suggestions and ideas will be highly regarded.
Now permit me to ask these few questions:-
1. Can you honestly help me as your daughter or your wife ?
2. Can I completely trust you?
3. What percentage of the total amount in question will be good for you after the money is in your account?
Please,Consider this and get back to me as soon as possible, as well I will like you to forward your private telephone and fax number if you are willing to have the relevant documents to confirm the existence of the fund for verification from the bank and to confirm the authenticity of my proposal to you also for easy communication.
Thank you so much.
My sincere regards,
Miss Mariam Murphy
Dear beloved one,
I thank you very much for your sincere response to my proposal and it gave me a great joy after reading your wonderful and hopeful mail.
Infact I am ready to depend on your every advise if you can assure me of the safety of this fund when it finaly comes to your care since you can see that this fund is the only thing that my late parents left for me so I do not intend to play with it that is why I have been looking for a trustworthy person who will not betray,deny or sit on the fund when it finaly comes to his or her care and I thank God that I have seen you as a God fearing person whom I can confide this fund to his hand without fear.
dear,I want to ask you for a favour,please can you allow me to be calling you my Darling since I have now taken you as my life partner and can you also take me as your wife and take proper good care of me when I come over to your country.The death of my parents has made me to lost all it costs to be happy in this world so I need someone who will take me as his wife so that I can regain my joy again.
I am ready to forward to you,all the legal documents that proves the existence of the fund which was issued to my late father by the bank when he deposited the fund and all these documents are with my guardian here because she is the only one that is aware of this fund and she is the only one that has been taking care of me since the death of my parents so all these documents will be sending to you because the bank will ask you for them when you will contact them.
Moreover I am ready to marry you as soon as I see your sincerity toward this transaction and I have decided to give you 15% for your assistances,and another 5% has been mapped aside to cover any incident expenses which we might incure during the process of this transaction and please be rest assure that any money you may spend for the purpose of this transaction must be reambused to you from the 5% immediately you received the fund in your account and I am assuring you that this transaction is 100% risk free and will benefit both of us at the end only if we can understand our selves and work with one mind.
My main purpose of contacting you to assist me in this transaction is that after you have received the fund in your account,you will send me some money from the 5% so that I can arrange my traveling documents to come over your country to further my education because it is one of the instructions that my late father gave to me before his death that I must further my education through the help of a foreign partner whom I will trust to confide this fund into his or her hand.
If you had read my first mail to you very well,you will understand that my father was the last I lost and he was poissoned to death by his friends/business associates simply because he was making progress in his business and they planed and poissoned him to death and before his death,he gave an outstanding instruction to the bank that the fund must be transfered outside this country before use,this is to make sure that I did not start to make use of the money here so that his enemies will not get at me and I am ready to leave this country now because of the political crises that is why I want you to hasten up so that we can conclude this transaction within a week time for me to leave this country to yours.
As I have explained to you about my situation here so I will like you to keep this transaction very secret and confidential for my own self security reasons.Please in your next mail,do not fail to include your pictures for personal identification and I have built all my confidence in you and for I have seen your sincerity towards helping me out of this situation, now I am enclosing the contact of the bank where the fund was deposited so that you can contact them and introduce yourself to them as my foreign partner whom the fund will be transfer to his account and ask them of their procedure of transfering fund from their bank to an account outside this country.
