I recieved this in my email so I did a little homework on this topic, And why someone would fall for this. Check it out below:


Hello Friend,

Before I proceed further, Please permit me to introduction myself to you. I am Mrs. Grace Bay-Ong Dagadag A complete citizen of Philippines. I am Wife of Late Mr. Tomlord Dagadag of Philippines. He worked with Philippine Embassy in the USA as An Ambassador for years and also hold other Political position in Philippines before his death on July 2005.

I inherited a total sum of $9.5 Million American dollars from my late husband, the money was concealed in a Metallic Trunk Box and was deposited with a security company in Abidjan Cote D Ivoire, that was because he needed a maximum security / safety of his consignment and no body nor government organization can trace the where about of the money until he is ready and prepare to claim it. But the Security company does not know the real content of the box, because it was deposited as a Family Valuables for security reasons.

In fact, since the death of my husband, his brothers has been seriously chasing me around with constant treats, trying to suppress me so that they might have the documents of his landed properties and confiscate them. They have successfully collected all his properties, yet they never stopped there, they told me to surrender all bank account of my late husband, which I did, but I never disclose to them this deposit with the security company in Cote D Ivoire, because this is where my future and destiny lies upon. The family of my late husband never aware of the secret existence of this deposit which I made with the security company and they can never be aware of it.

My main purpose of sending you this mail is because of the way I found you and perhaps trustworthy to give you this priority of shipping the box of money to any address that you think is very secure and save in your country for onward lodgement your account for the purpose of future investment with your percentage of which we shall chat on soon. I will send you the Authorization Certificate to call them in my next mail which is the Certificate of deposit that they gave to my late husband on the very day when the box of money was deposited under their company. I give thanks immensely for your co-operation as I look forward to hear from you for quick conclusion of this business. The percentage will be your reward for all your moral and financial assistance during the period of moving the money to your country. Please if you can assist me, I will be very grateful and repay you many times over.
Declaring your willingness to assist me in this venture in your next email reply.Waiting for a very quick response from you.

Best Regards,
Grace Bay Ong Dagadag

Your right Jimmy it is one of the oldest but I have not seen this one since the 80's when people were getting them in the mail and check this out I've got more on this scam it just arrived in my email today!

Hello Friend,

Thanks for your email and your sincere understanding to help and do this business with me. I will be very grateful to you and especially to God who have directed me to choose only you in this great venture to rescue me out of the lion den to live a better life with you in your country.

You may not understand very well why I use the word 'Lion's Den'. Since the sudden death of my late husband, I am going through hell right now and I have gone through a lot of humiliation in the hands of the wicked families of my late husband. But I strongly believe that if you are able to help me retrieve this box of money from the security company to your end, which means my life will come back to normal again when I join you soonest in your country.
You will have to help me in bringing this box of money out of the security company where the money was deposited, that is the more reason why I contacted you. All you have to do to make this transaction a true successful venture is to call the security company and give them your correct safe residential address where you want the box of money to be delivered to, then the company will use their diplomatic power to ship the consignment to your address with immediate effect. As soon as the trunk box reaches your address, you will also assist me in investing the monies into any lucrative business of your choice.

I will also feed you with more information and guidelines for you to discuss with the company without making any mistake. Upon your confirmation of this email, I will send you more information, my international passport and Certificate of Deposit by email attach so that you can call the security company in Abidjan, to give them your address where they will deliver the box immediately.

Awaiting to hear from you, while I look forward to meet you very soon. Till I hear from you, I remain your friend and partner forever.
Do write soon.

Best regards
Mrs. Grace Dagadag.


The thing is I told this person to stop while thay were ahead and that I know that it was a scam. I have many years in the Department of Crimial Justice and have learned about so many scams that it is hard not to fall for some because they sound so real but like you said people give it a shot and get burned.

LOL, you'll never get rid of them now :(

I have a friend who loves telemarketers, once he gets the call he will ask them to just hold on for a minute while he stops the pot from boiling over on the stove, then goes on with whatever it was he was doing before they called lol.

He'll usually wait 5 minutes before putting the phone back to his ear to check if they're still there, then hang up lol.

His theory is if they are happy to waste his time, he's happy to waste theirs.

On a serious note, thee types of scams are very common. Chances are if you haven't found one or two in your inbox as yet, you soon will, so just be ware that you haven't won lotto and ignore it lol
