    Hello Dear Friend,
    I am a senior Accountant in my Bank and Accounting officer to Late xxxxx and who was a contractor with the Government of BENIN. On The 21st of April 2009, my client's, his wife and their two children were involved in an auto-crash along the ever busy Tokpa High Way. All occupants of the vehicle unfortunately lost their lives. Since then,the Board of Directors of my Bank have made several enquires to their embassy to locate any of my client's extended relations but to no avail.
    I have contacted you to assist in repatriating the money and Property left behind by my client before they get Confiscated or declared unserviceable by the bank where this Huge deposits of US$15MILLION was lodged
    The Bank has published several Notice for the Next of Kin of the deceased to apply for collection of this Funds or have the account confiscated within a shot Period of time.
    Since I have been unsuccessful in locating the relatives for over 3years now hence I contacted you. I seek your consent to present you as the Next of kin of the deceased because you bear the same surname with my late client,which is a great advantage to reparate his money before they get confiscated by our government so that the proceeds of this Account valued at US$15 million dollars can be paid to you and Then you and me can share the money,50% to me and 50% to you.
    Please get in touch with my emailxxxxx and send to me your Telephone, Residential Address,and Email address to enable us further about this Transaction
    Best regards
    Mr xxxxx
    I replied asking for contact number for him and a place of employment, he responded with a phone number ect. Im not completely naive but being armenian there are not to many left since the turk genocide. ( I dont plan on giving any personal info ss#, address, ect.)

    This is oddly going down the same path as a lot of west African scams, wording and body of whats being offered and asked are near the same, typically this sorts of Financial interests are associated by paperwork and not a contact thru a social media.

    View the build. Too much to list.
    A hacker can do a lot with a little. Hack into your phone bill, make calls under your number, spam people as your number.

    are you serious ? How would you like a $20,000 phone bill as half
    of Haiti uses your account to contact relatives ?

    you should ask: what can a hacker do with all my posts
    I put up on TacomaWorld since joining ?

    lets see....a lot !

    If I put in 1/2 days effort, from the comfort of my internet connection
    and 25 bucks, I could ship you a box with a recent photograph of you inside.

    ----I do not have the time nor energy to do something like this, but plenty of goons do.---

    there is NOTHING 100% secure on the internet. You have to know this.

    I don't personally post much on the web, but for sure I have left so many
    breadcrumbs it would be impossible to NOT find me. The situation is such that
    if I am messed with too badly, I know how to track anyone down, or get the
    ball rolling in that direction... but I cannot prevent a crime, I can only guarantee
    solid followup on my side. The other thing I can guarantee is no one will ever
    **** **** **** **** masquerading as myself. That is on lockdown.

    Shitty deal. Looks like they were just looking for a scapegoat there. I mean while it was you who actually nailed it, you were given the okay to go.
