The Bank of Africa's money problems

Filed in: Spam.

You may recall a while back I got two emails from Amos Zongo, one about some gold he had, and another claiming he was the Auditor General of the Bank of Africa looking for some foreigner to offload $16 million with.

I just got another email from Amos, who is now a doctor and the bill and exchange manager, and has $25 million lying around. Sadly for Dr Zongo, two important pieces of information in his email suggest he's already too late:

"...In an account that belongs to one of our foreign customer who died along with his entire family in November 2000 in a plane crash."
"The Banking law and guideline here stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed after FIVE years, the money will be transferred into the Bank treasury as unclaimed fund."

Missed by 8 months! How sad!

Oddly enough, I got an email a while back from one Dada Oman, who also claimed to be the bill and exchange manager at the Bank of Africa, and has some $20 million handy...

Hi my name is Ice. I was very curious about Amor Zongo. An e-mail was sent in my Yahoo Mail and when I read the mail, is this true? or a Spam?

No, it's a scam. They claim to have money, but then require you to send them money in order to "release" it. There are, of course, no millions of dollars which they are going to send you.
