Barrister Pablo Nimmo Using Filipino Missionary in Fake Email

From email address: "Barrister Pablo Nimmo": barr.nimmo@yahoo.com

- email content -

Hello Dear Friend ,

I know this may sound ridiculous and unreal, but you must understand that life is all about chance and utilization of opportunities that comes our way. PLEASE DONT BE EMBARASSED NOR OFFENDED BY MY E-MAIL TO YOU. I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT OUT OF MILLIONS OF PEOPLE OUT THERE I CHOOSE TO CONTACT YOU. Is obvious we don’t know each other yet, but we don’t know why nature is crossing our path today. Meeting new people in our lives is a never-ending circle. You are like God sent to me today as I type this email for you. You may think this is too good to be real, but I am telling you today that as God lives, this is as real as the air both of us breathe.

Let me start by Formally introducing myself to you. I am Barrister Pablo Nimmo a Legal Practitioner. I am the Attorney representing Rev. Fr. Rufino O. Rufino, My late client was a 78 years Old Filipino Catholic Holy Ghost Reverend Father posted here in Nigeria in the 50's on a Missionary Work; he lived all his life here and owned an NGO which receives Financial Aid (Grant) from the United Nation and other conglomates. He died of Asthma, and since then no one has come forward to claim this fund he deposited in a Bank here, which he intend to use in establishing a foundation for Charity homes and orphanage centers in third world countries as he has been doing secretly.

Also to the issue-Based on my relationship with my client, he informed me of some wonderful ideas he wants to embark on which was to build one or two churches around the third wave countries and Asia and also donate monies to churches, and also to less privilege homes around the globe too with this deposit of US$2.800.000.00m he made through a CODED account in his local bank here in Africa which he gave me the CERTIFICATE OF DEPOSIT to keep as his lawyer.

THE BANK Chairman and Members of the Board of Directors, started arrangement for the fund to be declared "Unclaimed" and subsequently be donated as trust fund for arms/ ammunition to further enhance the course of War in Africa for their selfish political interest/investment. In order to avert this negative development, I hereby need your cooperation in order to see that the Will of my late client is actualized. I can never achieve this objective without a trustworthy foreigner and this is where you come in.

However, I want to seek your consent to present you as a relative to My deceased client by virtue of Power of attorney. As attorney to the deceased the responsibility to establish your relationship with my client rest on me and to achieve this objective, there are judicial processes involved, which I will brief you on subsequent correspondence if you indicate interest. Also take note that this is 100% risk free and legal.

I am not pursuing this claim for the financial gain. It is a duty I owe to my late client who unfortunately was an orphan with no existing relatives and even as I intend to use part of the funds to establish a foundation in his name; notwithstanding you will be adequately rewarded for your assistance in this endeavor I have decided to offer you 30% of the said funds. Expecting to hear from you as soon as possible, while replying include your direct mobile phone so I can give you a call immediately for further details. Respond to me through my direct priviate email: pn_chambers2005@yahoo.com

    I also received this kind of email but with slight difference from the one posted. Some details were explaned differently but of same meaning.

    After reading the said email, i immediately google his name and bumped into this series of expose about this scam. I don't know him so why do I have to trust the guy.

    this scammer knows how to innovate but is still stupid: fr. rufino o. rufino, and in the email i received fr. ronaldo o. ronaldo? sounds really suspicious. a priest having his own NGO foundation but has those lots of money at his personal disposal? obviously, the money will be left to the name of his foundation, and what to do with the grants would be decided by its board of directors. anyway, thanks for confirming my suspicion and keep up with the good work and service you're doing. more power and blessings to you.

    Thanks for the warning. I also received this Aug 16, 2008, 6:13am. I doubt the veracity of this because i do not know him and the "To: " part of the email is blank and the name of the priest as Ronaldo O. Ronaldo ... tsk-tsk-tsk! Just wondering why it did not go to spam folder? Anyway, thanks again for the warning !!! Hope many will be warned...

    hi, thanks for the info. i got different message but then the contenet is almost the same, he just changed some, like the age and some words. i actually replied to him, but then thank you, he is not that convincing. i just told him, leave it that way, if its God's plan to have the money as trust, then let it be, since he use the name of the Lord in vain. he could have another case. i am not convince that he infact is a lawyer. a lawyer always write with authority, such an all-knowing, they state facts and laws but that guy didnt. thank you for the site
