Definitely NOT a Scam

I got this via Facebook back in January and have wanted to post it for a while now, to share with you how my fortune has changed. I have to point out that I'm super lucky to be the first random U.S.-born person Mr. Dabrah looked up on Facebook for this incredible offer of fraud, and I'll try not to let all that money go to my head when I'm swimming in dough. I'll still remember you, readers, all the little people out there.

Now, I know he said to keep it TOP SECRET, but nobody reads this blog anyway, and you guys who do won't tell anyone, will you? I didn't think so. This goes for you too, Chinese internet troller who likes to post links to HOT ASIAN PORN! in the comments of my blog posts. Keep it on the down-low.

And finally, now that I'm filthy rich, Obama should definitely not be in the White House. Suck it all you poor people!

Hello Peter Terry,

I am sorry to contact you unannounced through this medium. I am Mr. Benjamin T. Dabrah, a banker here in Ghana . I write you this proposal in good faith hoping that I will rely on you . In 2006, one Mr. Daniel Terry who has same surname as yours and who has your country in his file as his place of origin, made a fixed deposit for 36 calendar months, valued at $18,400,000.00 with my bank. I was his account officer before I rose to the position of Manager Director now. The maturity date for this deposit contract was 16th of January 2009. Unfortunately, while on a business trip ,he died in a deadly earthquake that occurred on May 12, 2008 in Sichuan province of China which killed at least 68,000 people.

Since the last quarter of 2009 until today,the management of Barclay's bank have been finding a means to reach him so as ascertain if he will want to roll over the Deposit or have the contract sum withdraw .Since September 2009,when I discovered that this will happen , I learn t of his death ,so I have tried to think up a procedure to preserve this fund and use the proceed for charity .

Some directors here 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 Mr Daniel is now late, they will corner the funds for themselves. Therefore, I 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 head quarters will pay the funds to you. I have done enough inside bank arrangement and only have to put in your details into the information network in the bank computers and reflect you as his next of kin.

I am not a greedy person, so I am suggesting we share the funds equal, 50/50% to both parties My share will assist me to start a charity organization to help the poor and also own a company which has been my dream.

Let me know your mind on this and please do treat this information as TOP SECRET. We shall go over the details once I receive your urgent response strictly through my personal email address, benjamindabrah@gmail.com Have a nice day,and may GOD bless you.

Someone needs to start a little youtube series, where they act out all these different scam stories. Little Bourne Identities in 5 minutes. This would be a great one: Ghana, earthquakes, death, bank room politics.. Pure gold!

Why didn't he e-mail me??? I could really use the money! I'm sure giving him all my personal information would be perfectly safe.

I get no fewer than 4 emails per month from the king of africa, soliciting my help in a transfer of funds. Or sometimes "fends." Depends on how literate the king is, really.

You lucky dog. Next time I'm mugged in Morocco and need help settling my hotel bill, you will be the first one I contact.
