Scam: “Edmond Homo Benjamin”

OK, this one made me laugh.

Subject: Attn;My Dear,
From: “Mr. Jerry Moore.” <western.unionservice13@gmail.com>

To: undisclosed-recipients:;

Attn;My Dear,

I write to inform you that we already issued those documents to accompany your $5,000 payment each day. But the only problem we are having right here is your personal signatures which the Federal Administer of Fund Benin Republic requested that you must sign those documents before we can transfer funds to you. However, I told the officer in charge that it will not be necessary for you to come down here due to your occupation or some other thing that may not allow you to come down here to sign those documents yourself. The Minster Administrator of Fund said that you should get an attorney to sign on your behalf if you are unable to come down here in person.

I think this way is the best and the only way forward for you to receive the funds. I have negotiated with an attorney who would sign on your behalf. His name is Edmond Homo Benjamin. According to him you are to pay for the accredited attorney. He is charging $120.00 to be paid before he gets those documents signed in your favor. I told him to consider signing those documents on your behalf today with a promise that you would pay him back from the $5,000 payment you suppose to receive tomorrow morning if he gets those documents signed today.And his respond is that you have to pay the accredited attorney fee of $120.00 before signing those documents. Well, I asked him for the verylast time if he could allow you pay half of his fee today with a promise that you would pay him the Remain balance tomorrow from your $5,000 payment at the western union office once you pick up the $5,000 payment. Well, he said that you should pay the half of the fee $60.00 through western union today. He want me to ask you if you would be so kind to pay him back the remain $60.00 balance at the western union office once you picked up the $5,000 pay out each day. I am hereby this writing to ask you to let me know if you would pay his balance immediately you pick up the $5,000 payment.

He wants you to pay half of $60.00 today and pay the balance at the western union office once you picked up the $5,000 payment tomorrow.But if you are not kind enough to pay his balance after picking thefirst transfer just do not bother yourself not to reply because I won’t see another attorney here to do this. Here is information for you to pay $60.00 half of his fee through western union today.

Yas, well, you’ll be awaiting my compliance until Hell freezes over, Mr. Jerry Moore. These people are getting desperate – they only want $60.00 now, instead of hundreds or thousands. Naturally, if a victim bites, there will be “other fees” to be paid, ad infinitum.
It seems that these scams have recently shifted from Nigeria to Benin, or else the Nigerians are using Benin as a front to try to hide their identity.

Whatever the case, people, be careful out there. Nobody in Africa has any money for you, and NEVER SEND MONEY TO A STRANGER WITH WESTERN UNION OR MONEY CARDS.

The Old Wolf has spoken.
