Scam mail from the Assistant Deputy Governor Dr. Ernest EBI of CBN

Your ref:


Be informed that all the fees you are supposed to pay before receiving your contract /Inheritance fund have been waived off.

  You are to contact ASS.DEPUTY GOVERNOR DR.ERNEST EBI (CBN) at him on his Mobile Number +2348094403738 only for your (processing fee) and he will transfer your contract fund to you immediately. No other charges except the processing fee.

  Your PASSCODE is: 900-893-6389 ( Fund Transfer confirmation same day).Listen you are free to make your inquiries regarding to this proposal with any licensed and reliable authorities but do not make your inquiries with any individual, You have no other payment to make except the processing fee. Your Payment will be through Electronic Telegraphic Transfer. No need of calling Any solicitor/Official Again of moving to federal ministry of finance or any other authority for your payment.

This is newly introduced system of payment by the Central Bank of Nigeria to avoid experiences of incessant Fraud, illegal extortion of money from Contractors and to enhance transparency. This will also help you not to be deceived by any person telling you that your funds will be delivered to you at your doorstep through a diplomatic courier company. This has been widely warned in the internet but people are still falling victim.

WHEN YOUR FUND IS TRANSMITTED, DR.ERNEST EBI WILL INFORM YOU AND YOU APPLY THE PASSCODE AS DIRECTED AND INSTANTLY, YOUR ACCOUNT WILL BE CREDITED AND YOU MOVE TO YOUR BANK. You will only apply the pass code when you have paid your processing fee because for now, it is still invalid until your fund is transmitted.

If you pay your processing fee your pass code will be authenticated and gets valid thereby transmitting your funds to the newly introduced system of payment by the Central Bank of Nigeria and you can then make the transfer by yourself using the guideline.

You can try the guideline as an instance,* With your digital telephone dial our bank access code: 234770909 it will request your Bank Account number press #, at a voice prompt enter your pass code and press # and you will be credited. (This will automatically work if your pass code is valid) BUT TRY IT NOW AND NOTE THAT PASSCODE IS STILL INVALID. This is very simple just contact Dr Ernest Ebi and make sure you keep your pass code secret to avoid interception.

Contact me if there is any delay from the so called gentleman in charge.

Any other contact or payment you make apart from the processing fee is at your own risk. Note that when contacting DR.ERNEST EBI you are advised to provide the information below:

Full Name:
Valid Telephone Number:
Bank Name.

Be informed that so many unauthorized individuals do parade themselves as our officials and impose bogus bills on our contractors with their syndicates home and abroad. Take precautionary measure henceforth. You have been notified.

Yours faithfully,

Please call. for more information.
We are waiting, Have a nice day.

Best Regards

(Federal Republic of Nigeria)

the worst thing about Nigerian scammers is that you can actually call them on the phone and you’ll get them.

I just called the above scammer on his Mobile Number +2348094403738. Yes o, the guy said he’s the assistant deputy governor Ernest Obi. The guy said he was in a meeting and I should call back in 1–hr. The guy is obviously in his house, a very quiet background with echoes everywhere.

A project just popped into my mind….something like an online database of scammers phone numbers, which could be presented to GSM companies for blocking. Anyone interested, pls holla back. We could rub minds.

Scam mail from Adams Bola or Izik Johnnsen, Executive Director of Trident Corporation

A JJC / stupid scammer sent me this email:


My name is IZIK JOHNNSEN, I am a citizen of Sweden and the Executive Director of
Trident Corporation, a multi-national oil corporation operating from London-England, UK. I
am seeking your assistance to retreive the sum of fifteen Million Dollars
consisting of two consignment boxes.

This money was acquired from the company and it was accompanied by a diplomat
to the U.S.A, my reason for this is because I have been cheated out of my
entitlements by the company for too long simply because I am not a British. The
contact details of the diplomat will be given to you if you indicate your
interest to help me.

Each of the boxes contains $7.5M and for your help I am ready to release 30% to
you, for security reasons the consignment was registered to be CONFIDENTIAL
DIPLOMATIC DOCUMENTS and I can explain why it was declared so. Bear in mind that the
diplomat is not aware of the content of the consignment, it has been there for
the past 1 month as I’m looking for a reliable partner.

I will be leaving the country immediately the consignment is delivered to you
for my private investment and I have vowed never to step back into London,
England. Please, I need your urgent response before my plans to leave the
company is discovered.
Right now the safest form of correspondence is through my own e-mail address,
please in the interest of confidentiality only reply through my direct email

Reply along with

your full names
your personal telephone,
your home or office address
marital status
and fax number

where I can reach you.
Please if you are not willing and interested in helping me kindly delete this
email from your computer and pretend you never got it.

Best regards,

Executive Director
Trident Corporation.
London, England

I call him a JJC because while he calls himself Izik Johnnsen, his Nigerian name shows in his Nigerian name, Adams Bola, perhaps:



Let me suppose that Mr Adams Bola or Bola Adams has various email  addresses, and the one used in this case is his yahoo-CBN email address. Stupid guy.
