Sequel to your non response of our earlier letter sent by post to you by to you on behalf of the Trustees and Executors of the Estate of our late client.We wish to notify you again that you were listed as a beneficiary to the total sum of $11,300,000.00 (Eleven million Three hundred thousand American dollars)in the codicil and last testament of the deceased. (Name now withheld since this is our second letter to you).

I contacted you because you bear the surname identity and therefore i can present you as the sole beneficiary to the inheritance. I therefore reckoned that you can receive these funds as you are qualified by your name identity.

To verify these funds in escrow, please call the Automated Number of the Bank and follow the prompt:
Call: +1 (360)515-3118 Pass code: 2501
Account Number: 000412803

I hope we can work together as partners to make this transaction come to fruition. Partnership is all about mutual understanding, mutual trust, mutual cooperation, mutual efforts /contribution and mutual benefits for all parties.

Note that this project was perfectly planned out before I contacted you, therefore I can boldly assure you that nothing will come short of success. But once again I want to ask; are you ready? I ask because there are two sides to a coin. Please if you are ready reconfirm the following information to me;

Residential Address
Telephone and fax number
Date of Birth

Upon the receipt of the above information from you the legal process that will establish you as the beneficiary of the inheritance will commence. The process will involve the swearing of an affidavit at the court here in Switzerland to support the claim that you are the beneficiary of the bequest in question as instructed by the deceased. Thereafter I will send to the Probate registry of the court an application along with the sworn affidavit to enable them approve you and confirm you as the beneficiary of the estate. A probate letter of administration will then be issued in your favour.

Thereafter an application will be sent to the bank for the claim of the fund attaching the probate letter. Necessarily, upon receipt of the application the Bank will do their verification and if they are satisfied, which will be the case; the inherited fund will be released to you. Once that is done you can decide to transfer the estate out of the Bank to the Bank in your country of residence. Note that the bank as a matter of procedure will contact you to request personal information from you, in a bid to double check if you are the person whose information they already have, so that there will be no error of payment to a wrong beneficiary.

At this point I will emphasize on the importance of trust, sincerity and making sure we are discreet the way we handle the transaction. We are the only ones that know the nitty-gritty of this transaction. It therefore should be kept that way. You take instructions from only me because for us to succeed and achieve without having problems, then we need each other’s trust and confidence.

Note that the success we crave for may not come cheaply; I will invest a lot of money to secure this feat. Stamp duties will be paid on the affidavit, aside that a percentage amount of money will be paid at the Probate registry and these expenses will be my responsibility.

I am proposing a sharing ratio to be 50% for me 50% for you.

Before I forget, let me introduce myself properly. My name is Baker Rutschi, I am a lawyer based in Switzerland and I am 41 years Old. You can reach me on the following telephone and fax number + 41(44) 586 59 03. My address is Fluelastrasse 41, Zürich 8047, Switzerland. Please make it as a matter of importance to call me. The information I requested you reconfirm above are important because it represents a confirmation of your acceptance. If there is anything you wish to know feel free to bring it up.

This is a golden opportunity which must be exploited otherwise posterity will ask us questions.

I am Mrs. Lisa Johnson, Director, Corporate Services, Divisional Head of Swift Transfer Unit of Santander Bank Limited,London UK. Sometimes ago, you were a beneficiary of a large amount of money in our bank from National Lotto Group here in England. After a long period of time elapsed, the money was recalled to the treasury of National Lotto Group because it was not claimed. During the period this money remained unclaimed in our bank, it generated an interest of US800,000.00 which we are about to pay to you now.

For your information, you are advised to hasten up with the process of picking up this generated interest of US800,000.00 because from time to time the National Lotto Group auditors do come to our bank to cross-check our financial transactions with them. So, the earlier you comply with the demands of the delivery of this money to you, the better; because when the auditors arrive and find out that this accrued interest is still unclaimed in our bank, they will call back the accrued interest to the National lotto Group treasury account.

What we need from you now, are two sets of your identifications such as; your International Passport and Driver's License, your telephone and fax numbers for easy communication with you. As a matter of fact, we don't have time to waste since we have wasted so much time already trying to contact you on the phone without success. We advice that you comply with the necessary requirements for the immediate transfer of your fund

Contact: Mr. Nigel Hadlow +447031897490

You don't need to set up an account to be able to receive your check neither is it possible to deduct the money from the Check.

I did not consider this medium the best manner to approach you on such issue being that the web has been greatly abused over recent years and partially unsecured for exchange of vital information and genuine business as well,but its due to your non-response to my earlier email as I urgently wanted to alert you about your Cashier's Check that this is %100 Legit and for real and i would never tarnish my image nor Scam you out of your hard earned money at all.

Also, I have to let you know that the fees you are sending is meant to cover the mailing of your draft to you and just in case you are having doubts regarding the authenticity of the cheque, a letter of recommendation/administration from the Federal Ministry of Finance certifying and confirming the validity of your cheque will also be sent along side with your package,With this document,you can conveniently cash funds at your bank without any fuss.

From: Brown Lawrence


Greeting to you, the inspiration to contact you is simply divine Providence, I choose to reach you through your email it is the fastest medium of communication irrespective that it has been greatly abused. I am making this proposition because I have to seek the Partnership of a resourceful person to help me realize this Fund.

I got your contact in my search for a reliable and trustworthy partner, who I can do business with in USA. I would want to have good confidence in you and I hope you will not take undue advantage to betray me at last.

I am Barrister Lawrence Brown, a solicitor and investment consultant based in London, United Kingdom. I was attending a business lunch in Berlin Germany, and I got introduced to the renowned German businessman and property mogul, Eng. Robert Vanzekin (of blessed memory).

He engaged my services as an attorney and investment consultant and my primary assignment was to spear head his investment forays in the United Kingdom. Three months later I invited him to London and under my professional guidance and based on my advice he deposited a consignment worth of (USD$9.6 Million Dollars) at a financial institution.

This deposit was for 12 months and upon maturity I made effort to Contact my client; I could not reach him or any member of his family. I was forced to travel to Germany and there I got the tragic news that on July 25 2010, my client Eng. Robert Vanzekin, died after suffering from the cancer of the lungs.

I have made efforts to locate any member of his family with strong Biological links to my late client without success. The search to find a close relation is one that has consumed time and resources. The Institution is asking me to either present a next of kin to late Eng. Robert Vanzekin. His foreign business partner based on the Memorandum of understanding (M.O.U) signed during the deposition of the fund or forfeits the deposit. My proposal is to package, present you as next of kin or foreign business partner to late Eng. Robert Vanzekin and process the deposit and transfer to your custody for our mutual benefit.

My capacity as solicitor/investment consultant to my late client gives me the discretion to package and transfer the deposit to you. The total amount will be divided into two (50%) will be used for charity organization project (BUILD MOTHERLESS BABIES HOME) while the remaining (50%) will be shared equal between both of us. It will amount to injustice if I do not take this decisive step to secure this deposit, and invest it. The late Vanzekin was also a friend in addition to our business relationship.

I wait for your reaction and response together so we can jumpstart this project and nurture it to reality.

Your swift response is anticipated.

The late bank customer DR.HAZIM IBRAHIM is a foreigner and an indigene of (Burkinabe) can not stand as next of kin to our deceased customer unless a foreigner. There is no doubt about your eligibility as the legal next of kin to our deceased customer and owner of the account number CBOA-1036-086, with the following reasons: Before the death of our deceased customer his true next of kin was not indicated to the board of directors of the bank because of the top secrecy and confidentiality of the transactions which our late customer transacted with the various governments in West Africa. Owning to his failure to indicate his next of kin to the officials of the bank, it is therefore impossible for the board of directors of the bank to verify the next of kin as well as the true heritor of the funds.

DR.HAZIM IBRAHIM, A CITIZEN OF ELEXANDRIA,EGYPTIAN who nationalised here in Burkina Faso for (16) years. who died long ago in heart related disease. Since his death, his account has been dormant and nobody has applied to our bank for the release of this money to him or her as the next of kin For the above reasons the managements of the bank authorised me officially as the executive manager, AUDTITING AND ACCOUNTING DEPARTMENT of the bank to verify the next of kin to our deceased customer. Therefore, the bank will always abide by my official directions through the official authorisation bestowed on me. And for this reasons you have nothing to fear as your interest and identity will be legally protected.

This is very urgent because the bank rules and regulation states that any claim that stayed for the period of Four years (4yrs) unclaimed shall be transferred into the Federal Reserve account as unclaimed money and this will enter the hands of the same corrupt politician again, after the study of the deceased file which is still at the bank custody, I am given you 100% ASSURANCE THAT his true next of kin was not indicated to the board of directors of the bank because of the top secrecy and confidentiality of the transactions which our late customer transacted with the various governments in West Africa.

and letter of authorization to secure all the legal papers to back up this transaction.

One of the instructions stated in the letter of authorization issued by Mrs Grace

How to Spot and Avoid a Cameroon Pet Scam

Anatomy of Cameroon Pet Scam

Buying or adopting any pet online, without actually seeing it first is extremely risky, and I strongly recommend you do not do it!  Read: Buying Pets Online However, people continue to do it and they risk falling for a pet scam. There are many more pet scammers out there than legitimate pet sellers so the odds are in their favor. Consequently, if you are going to gamble on buying a pet online you are more likely to encounter a scammer than a real pet seller. Be mindful of the fact that even if you are fortunate enough not to deal with a scammer and actually receive a pet, it could still be very different from that which was pictured or advertised, in poor health, without the promised registration and/or otherwise unsuitable.

This article will try to give you an overview of the pet scam, how it works, why it works, and how to avoid falling for it. Remember the pet scam is constantly changing and there are many variations of the scam which do not fit completely with or may even be substantially different from what is outlined below. Just because a situation does not match this article, that does not mean that it is not a scam. To see a collection of scam emails, addresses and phone numbers please see: Scamwarners/ Pets and Animal Adoptions

If the "seller" or "pet shipping company" even so much as mentions Cameroon, it is a scam! Even the United States Embassy warns about the scam. The country code of Cameroon is (237), if you receive a telephone number with that country code its a scam. Scammers will attempt to hide it by grouping the numbers a certain way such as 23 7111111. There are no legitimate pets for sale, rehoming or adoption in Cameroon just pet scammers. For that matter there are none in West Africa which would include Nigeria, Benin, Toga, Ivory Coast, Burkina Faso, Ghana, all nations known for advance fee scams. Don't even consider buying or adopting a pet from West Africa!

Any ad or website offering a dog for "rehoming" or "adoption" is fraud 99% of the time. Many times they claim the dog is AKC certified and pure bred yet they only want adoption and/or shipping fees. If the dog really existed, they could go to their supermarket and have the dog "rehomed" or 'adopted' in a half an hour tops at no cost.

If the seller or the "pet shipping company" even mentions payment via money transfer such as Western Union, MoneyGram, Coinstar, MoneyBookers, Liberty Reserve, Reloadit its a scam! Almost every pet scammer will request payment via this method which is completely unsuitable for any online purchase as there is no consumer protection and scammers can easily receive the money and stay anonymous. It's like giving cash to a stranger and hoping he comes back with your pet. See:

If either the "seller" or "pet delivery company" gives you a telephone and/or fax contact number that begins with +4470, +44070, or +44(0)70 its a scam!  These numbers, with or without the country code or 44 or the first 0 are called UK global redirects or personal forwarding numbers. In other words, it the scammer is targeting people in the UK, he will give you a number that begins with "70". The number is not in the UK! The phone call is forwarded to another number where the scammer really is.  The cost of the call is charged to the caller and they are very expensive.  The same goes for numbers that begin with +44 871, +44 870, +44 844, or 44 845  Please see

Any pet shipping/delivery company using a free email address, such as,,,,, etc. is a scammer, especially free email addresses chosen to match a company name, such as  No real company uses a free email address.  Scammers also use free email addresses that appear official, such as "", "", "  

If a the seller advertises the pet in one area and then when you contact him, states that it is in a different area, for any reason, its a scam.  The point is to make sure you cannot see the pet, which doesn't exist, and that you have to pay to ship it to you.

In the situations I note above and below, when I say its a scam, I mean its a scam, not maybe or probably or likely, I mean without exception! Immediately cease communication with the "seller", don't give them the benefit of the doubt as there isn't any! Do not be swayed by anything they say or send you such as identification, registration documents, etc. which will always be fake. The pictures of the pets are fake. Their professed Christianity is fake! It's all fake! Do not rationalize or let yourself be bullied. Scammers are successful because they are convincing and intimidating, and they will never admit they are scamming you and they are perfectly heartless.

It is up to YOU to save your emotions and your money! No one else will do it for you, not the scammers and unfortunately not Western Union, MoneyGram, Coinstar, MoneyBookers, Liberty Reserve or any other money transfer service or law enforcement.   

Google is one the most useful tools to use in avoiding any scam, including a pet scam. Google the email address of the "seller", his or her "name", his or her phone number and the name, email address and phone number of the "pet shipping company." Many times you will find that the "seller" or "pet shipping company" has been involved in a scam which is why we post all these details.

The typical pet scam has several recognizable elements and warning signs as detailed below:

1. A Free or Cheap Pet For Rehoming?

The scam usually begins with an advertisement in a free classified online ad, on a website or in an email offering an American Kennel Club "AKC", i.e., pure bred dewormed, vaccinated, micro chipped puppy that would be worth well over $1000, for a low adoption, "rehoming" and/or shipping fee. Though puppies are the most popular, the scam also involves birds (especially parrots and macaws), monkeys, kittens, horses, reptiles and insects all offered for well-below market prices. Some of these animals wouldn't even be importable or would be subject to long quarantine! See Animal Import Procedures for Various Countries. Some scammers have paid websites, price their "nonexistent" pets at more realistic prices and claim to be in nations other than Cameroon. It is very important to review

Many advance fee frauds targeting consumers offer unrealistically attractive prices to lure potential victims. If the victim feels the pet is a bargain, he or she, may be willing to pay for shipping and unexpected fees figuring that, even with the additional expenses, he or she is still getting a good deal.

2. Great Pet Pictures

The pictures of the pet in the ad, website or email or is very good and don't look like a picture a seller might just take with his own digital camera. The pictures are professional pictures stolen from legitimate pet sellers' websites or other online sources. The pictures are one of the keys to the scam because many victims "fall in love" with the pet based on the pictures. This applies to persons seeking to purchase a pet as well as those seeking to adopt one in order to save it from abandonment. Even potential victims who discover they are being scammed still regret not being able to get the pet because "it" was "perfect."

3. Overly Emotional, Inquisitive and Personal Emails.

In the initial email, the "seller" will often tell a very personal story of a close relative such as an offspring or spouse, dying suddenly and/or tragically, such as by being hit by a drunk driver. Many times that relative, their offspring or spouse, was responsible for caring for the pet or the pet reminds the seller of the deceased and that is the reason he is offering the pet for such a small amount. Another variation, is that they have had to travel to Cameroon (most pet scammers operate out of Cameroon) or somewhere else for some noble or humanitarian cause, such as UNICEF, Doctor's Without Borders. Peace Corp., World Health Organization or military duty and they have found that the weather is too harsh for the puppy and that is why they are offering the pet for adoption at such a low fee. There are countless variations on this theme and it may also be absent.

The "seller" may also profess to be a staunch Christian, to be a married family man or woman and will frequently pepper his emails with religious references. This emotional "sharing" is designed to make the "seller" appear reputable and remove any inkling that this might be a scam from the mind of the victim who is going to be faced with many questionable conditions and will have to be trusting. The first email also asks a lot of questions so that the "buyer" can appear to care more about the pet's welfare than money which gives another reason for the pet's low price. The "seller" also wants to know the victim's location. It is not normal for a seller to share so many aspects of his or personal life when merely selling a pet.

4. The Seller's Location Changes

Though the ad indicated the pet was in one location, and it might have been placed only days ago, the "seller" now indicates that he or she are in a different location far away from the "buyer." Many times, the "seller" will not reveal his location until he knows where the victim is. That way he can be far enough away so the victim cannot see the pet and must pay to ship it. If asked, the scammer offers various reason for this sudden change of location including that he was called away suddenly to Cameroon or he advertised the puppy in the U.S. because he wanted it to have a U.S. owner. If the victim insists that he or she or a friend are in the same location as the scammer and insist on visiting the pet the scammer will lose interest. Some scammers claim to be in Alaska or Hawaii since those locations are obviously remote and there is less chance that a "buyer" would be there to see the pet.

5. Bad grammar, Spelling, Punctuation and Unfamiliar Phrasing.

Most pet scammers are from Cameroon and other West African nations and they lack basic English skills. They stick to "scripts" especially in the first or second emails which is why their emails are so uniform. However, when they are forced to improvise in response to specific questions or circumstances they will be uncomfortable with the written word. They might ignore questions and send the same email again. They may use specific terms which are particular to West Africa, such as hoping to "read" from you instead of "hear" from you. They may call you "dear." They may refer to the pets as "babies." The "pet delivery company' frequently says "stay and enjoy our services" They have poor grammar, spelling and punctuation. They will write in capital letters. On the telephone they speak with thick accents, mispronounce common words and can be difficult to understand.

6. "Adoption Papers"

The next phase of the scam, thought it might be skipped, is the change of ownership or adoption papers. There may be a separate fee for this, but the actual intent is make sure that the pet is in the victim's name to give the victim a sense of responsibility for the pet's well being, and thus, he or she is more likely to pay for items to ensure its comfort and ultimate arrival. Also, when the victim suspects they are being scammed and balks at any payments, the scammer can threaten the victim with prosecution for animal cruelty or abandonment since of course the pet now "belongs" to them. In real life there is no "adoption" necessary when a pet is sold or adopted. If you get a dog's license, and you should, you would simply register your name with the governing agency giving you the dog tag.

7. "Pet Shipping Company"

The most important phase, because that is usually where the advanced fees are collected, is the shipping of the pet which is done by a "pet shipping company" which is another scammer or the same one. Now, some "sellers" will request that the victim pay them and they will pay the "shipper". The "shipper" will come into play though, because the delivery of the pet will always hit a snag, and the shipper will request more costs or fees. The "seller" will act as if they have no stake in the charges made by the "shipper" and will even profess surprise at the added costs and even offer to "pay" some portion if a victim balks.

No Real Shipper Uses a Free Email Address

Any "pet shipping company" using a free email address indicates a scam. Legitimate companies do not use free email addresses!

Request for Payment via Money Transfer or PayPal or Bank to Bank (T/T) Transfer Indicate a Scam

The "seller" and "shipping company" almost always requests payment via Western Union/Money Gram and many times the "recipient" is in Cameroon. Again, any request for payment via Western Union/MoneyGram/Coinstar indicates a scam!!!  Requests for payment via PayPal and Bank to Bank (T/T) transfer also indicate a scam.  See  Pet delivery is a "service" even when their is no pet to deliver so PayPal will not reimburse you when you are defrauded.

The scammers will say they accept credit cards, however, they can't accept them right now because they are under audit, or they only accept credit cards for a sum which is higher than the shipping fees, or something other reason they can think of and those reasons or endless. All legitimate pet shippers accept credit cards and that is the only safe way to pay for an online transaction. Many fraudulent "pet shipping company" websites have phishing forms which steal your credit card information. Never enter your credit card information on an online payment page unless you are absolutely sure that the shipper is legitimate!!!

There are basically three tactics the scammers take with the shipping company:

(a) They impersonate an actual shipping company even giving the victim the website of that company. However, the email address and any telephone numbers they give the victim will be different. The email address will be a free or public email address. If you were to scrutinize the website of the company they give you, you would notice this discrepancy. Unfortunately, some legitimate pet shipping websites do not have contact information.

(b) They don't profess to have a website and just send an email written as if it were from a real pet shipping company. Many times the text will be copied from a legitimate pet shipper's website. The name of the shipping company might be similar to a legitimate pet shipper's name, including images, and the email address will mimic it as well, however, they will always use free or public email address. They make very liberal use of free email addresses since these tend to look official. See: All legitimate pet shippers have websites!

(c) They point the victim to a fraudulent website which is put up by the scammer. Most of these websites are on free website/sub-domains and appear very amateurish. However, they can be on paid domains and be more sophisticated. It is important to review: Most of these fake sites claim to be members of IPATA and by referring to IPATA's website you can check for yourself.

8. Further Fees

If a victim falls for the scam and sends the shipping fee, as with most advance fee scams, the scam is not over. There will be further requests for money. The possible fake charges are only limited by the scammers' imagination. There are charges for better cages, extra food, vet examinations, insurance, etc. The scammer will tell you that some of these fees are refundable. This is of course to entice you to pay them. Any money you send to a scammer will be gone. As long as the victim continues to pay charges the scammers will invent more charges. Sometimes, the puppy dies and the scammer will offer you compensation, however, they will want you to pay some additional fee. Refundable insurance is a favorite one because its generally about $400 to $500. Insurance companies charge a premium for undertaking the risk and they don't refund that when they don't have to pay a claim or they would never be profitable. At this stage some victims, inasmuch as they have already paid the shipping fee, are "invested" in a positive outcome. However, the only thing worse that being scammed is being scammed again! Any money you will supposedly get back will require you to pay more money and this could, and has spiraled out of control, so that victims, instead of just losing the shipping fees, end up losing thousands of dollars!

As aforementioned, the scammer or "catcher" who sold the pet always professes ignorance of these extra charges and if the victim balks at the full cost they will offer to "pitch" in and pay a portion.

9. Persistence, Denials of Scam, and Threats of Prosecution

At some point, even the most trusting victim will realize or suspect that they are being scammed and will refuse to pay more charges. Scammers are very persistent and pet scammers are no different. They will ignore even overwhelming evidence that they are scamming you and will never admit it never! They will persist in calling you and emailing you and, they will even threaten you with prosecution for cruelty to the animal because, by not paying some fee, you will have abandoned it and of course "its" in your name. Obviously, you can't be prosecuted for abandoning a non-existent pet. Moreover, they are in Cameroon or another country in West Africa, and those countries don't have legal jurisdiction over you.

10. Recovery Scam

Many times, persons who fall victim to a pet scam will be contacted by the same or another scammer pretending to be a lawyer or law enforcement officer who offers to get the victim's money back. However, the victim will be expected to pay for subpoenas, or court costs, or some similar costs, usually by Western Union/MoneyGram. Obviously, if you receive such an email it should be ignored.

11. It's Extremely Difficult to Prosecute a Scammer

It is important to realize that it is almost impossible to prosecute these scammers. They use free email addresses, pre-paid mobile telephones, Western Union/MoneyGram/Coinstar, free hosted websites and aliases so its extremely difficult to identify them. Even if you could identify them, they are in a different country beyond the legal jurisdiction of the country the victim is in. The countries where the scammer reside, mainly Cameroon and other West African nations, do not have the resources or the inclination to prosecute them. The best method of defeating them is to post the text of their emails, the email addresses, telephone numbers, and money transfer receiver information they use. This is searchable on Google and warns away potential victims who are diligent enough to perform a search before they part with their money. You can and should file a Internet Crime Complaint but it will not stop the scam or get your money back. You can also alert the Cameroon Authorities.
