Beware Bogus Business Partnerships!

Kawartha Lakes Mums Offered Phony Business Partnership!

Kawartha Lakes Mums have you received fake business partnership offer?  If you do, tag it as spam and delete immediately!
 There are many versions of this Business partnership email floating around the internet. Most are full of grammatical errors and misspellings, which tip off the recipient almost immediately. Surprisingly,this version is fairly well-written - perhaps some of the scammed money is going into improving the writing skills of the author. However the pattern remains the same:

  • A stranger contacts you with a tragic story
  • You are asked to send personal information
  • You are asked to enter into a partnership involving moving money from another country to your country
  • You are promised compensation for completing a bank transaction
Frankly, the letter writers are counting on two things, the recipient's greed, and the recipient's potential level of being too embarrassed to report being duped, or trying to profit from tragedy visited upon someone else.

Never Send Your Information To Strangers!

Greetings to you.

I guess you are fine and doing well. I write to let you know my desires to contact you and to invest in your country; I am the first son of Mr. John Kamara , who was the former Minister of Mines and Industry. My father had a bullet wounds by the rebels on his way traveling to the Capital city Freetown along with my sister. My sister died on the spot while (U.N) Peace keeping force rescued my father, he later died after some months.

Before his death he told me about his security deposit of Four Million Eight Hundred Thousand United States Dollars ($4.8M) which i should use to look after my self and my Mother if anything happen to him. and shouldn't go back to Sierra-Leone. Why my father deposit the fund in the security company in Ghana is for safety of the funds.

Presently, my mother and I are here in Accra Ghana West Africa to notify the Finance Firm for the claims of the Deposit, and we are in GHANA right now. Therefore we want you to partner with us, lecture us on how best we can invest this money in your country and as I told you we really wanted to buy a house when we come there. My father told me it is dangerous to invest this money in anywhere around this place to avoid prying eye, due to bad economy and political instability facing this side of African countries, that is why we want to invest in abroad.

For your foreign assistance I and my mother have agreed to offer 30% of the total amount of the money to you so you can be able to reimburse your self of the cost of helping us secure this fund and also investing it to a lucrative business. We have all the vital documents covering the deposited fund and the ownership.

NOTE: I have never disclosed this to any person apart from you, so you have to keep this matter very confidential. More details will be given to you upon your response.

Yours faithfully,
Goodluck P. Kamara and Comfort Kamara (Mother)
