    Got this well known scam via PM from user name: dnatah


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    dear Friend,

    i am mr David Natah, the bill and exchange manager at bank of cote d’ ivoire .with due respect and regards, i have decided to contact you on a business transaction that will be very beneficial to both of us at the end of the transaction. during my investigation and auditing in my department, i came across a very huge sum of money belonging to a deceased person, a foreigner who died in a plane crash with his intire family.

    reply only to my private e-mail : dnatah60@yahoo.com or call me: 0022505586622

    the fund has been in his account with the bank without any claim of the fund in our custody either from his family or relation before our discovery to this development. although personally, i kept this information secret within myself to enable the whole plans and idea be profitable and successful during the time of execution. the amount involved is usd$5,000,000 (five million u.s dollars.) meanwhile the whole arrangement and directives needed to put claim over this fund as the next of kin to the deceased, will be forward to you upon your acceptance. information will be relayed to you as soon as you indicate your interest and willingness to assist me and also benefit yourself to this great business opportunity.

    in fact i could have done this deal alone but because of my position in this country as a civil servant, we are not allowed to operate a foreign account and would eventually raise an eye brow on my side during the time of transfer because i work in this bank. this is the actual reason why it will require a second party or fellow who will forward claims as the next of kin to the bank and also present a foreign account where he
    will need the money to be transferred into on his request as it may be, after due verification and clarification to designated bank account.

    you can see the website below covering the plane crash by cnn & bbc news.

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/3348109.stm

    i will not fail to inform you that this transaction is 100% risk free. on smooth conclusion of this transaction, you will be entitled to 40% of the total sum while 60% will be for me. you have been advised to keep top secret as i am still in service and intend to retire from service after i conclude this deal with you.

    i will be monitoring the whole situation here in the bank until you confirm the money in your account and ask me to come down to your country for subsequent sharing of the fund according to percentages previously indicated and further investment, either in your country or any other country you may advice me to invest in. all other necessary information will be sent to you when i hear from you. i suggest you get back to me as soon as possible stating your wish in this deal.

    please reply to my private e-mail : dnatah60@yahoo.com

    by indicating your bank account detals where the fund will be transfered to. also, send me your private phone number for easy communication.

    best regard,
    Mr. David Natah

    Hi PLATINUM,

    I was notified of this user yesterday afternoon by another member. dnatah has been banned, if any members receive any future personal messages similar to the above message, but of course from a different username, please contact any forum staff member with the quoted message.

    Thanks.

    This is just an FYI:

    There is a number (I'm not sure how many) of you who may have received a PM from "einstein" a while back that have been unread as you revisit this site, as made evident in this thread, the user was banned on the third of this month because of this fact raised by other members.

    Again, as stated in my previous reply, if you receive any of these spam/scam PMs from a user similar to the quoted message above, forward it to one of the forum staff (administrators or moderators) and we'll handle everything from there.

    Thanks.
