We were married for eleven years without a child. He died after a brief illness that lasted for only four days.Before his death we were both born again Christian. Since his death I decided not to re-marry or get a child outside my matrimonial home which the Bible is against. When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of ($15Million) (Fifteen Million Us Dollars)with a Bank in Cotonou,Presently this money is still in the ustody of one of the Security firms.
Recently, my Doctor told me to stop doing anything because of my health due to the cancer problem. Having known my condition I decided to look for a foreign investor that will utilize this money the way I
am going to instruct herein,as my late husband has already made the deposit to a foreign associate,fully indicated before the Bank.
However,I want a Trust worthy,reliable and God fearing Man or Woman that will manage this fund till the NEXT 5 years in any profitable business of your choice in your country.Furthermore,I don't need any telephone communication in this regard because of my health hence the presence of my husband's relatives are around me always.I don't want them to know about this development, in acceptance the following information stated below are required:
1)Your full name and address.
2)Your marital status
4)Your direct telephone/Fax numbers
5)Your account particulars
6)Your passport details for legal operations.
As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the Bank in Cotonou. I will also issue you an authority letter that will prove you the present beneficiary of this fund as the next of kin to
the depositor, Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I Stated herein. Hoping to receive your response immediately. Thanks and Remain blessed in the Lord.

Evan has put it right! Human stupidity has no limitsJ Even though you hear about all these scams and everything, when a mail comes to your inbox saying your investment would triple, people would want to invest and then afterwards repine that they were tricked by Ponzi Fraud or whatnot. Like someone once said-you only got tricked because you let them!

Hey buddy... I am Joe... I too wanted to earn money quickly and was trapped in a fraudulent activity. I invested a huge amount of money and lost all of it!!! L U knw what happened with me... I got a mail from a stranger who shared his experience with me and advised me to invest money. That time, I was really lured by the idea of earning money quickly in just few months.

Hi, I am James, working as a Public relations professional. My job is to handle public communications and to present and maintain a positive public image for my organization. I just wanted to share one of my bad experiences and make other people aware of this scam. Last year, I had become a victim of a scam called 'Internet Ponzi Fraud'. I had invested a huge money but in return have not received anything. They promised to pack back a good amount of interest but after few months stopped crediting money into my account. They took all my personal information while submitting application for buying the investment plan. At that time, I got very depressed as a pretty mature and sensible human and also amazed that how can I get trapped with such a scam. For a few days, I was very upset because of the whole incident. I just wanted to give some suggestion so that nobody else would be victimized with this scam. Being a victim, I just wanted to advise people not to disclose while doing any online transaction and keep their personal information secure. Even if you want to do online transaction just take the owner's name, business identity, telephone number, street address, mailing address, and business license number before you transact any amount. Some can even provide false names, telephone numbers, addresses, and business license numbers. So beware of these things while buying any investment plan over the net. At that moment, I forgot that money cannot be earned without hard work and effort, and so got ripped off.
