LYING WASTE

February 2011

The latest, extremely clever exploit from the mind behind FINAL FALLACY.
When Sephiroth Crescent is asked to siphon funds from a politician's account, he conjures up the politician's ghost.
This was not part of the scammers' plan.

The Players:
Mr. Babu Ali - Bulk Mail Lad
"Management BOA" - 'Banker' Lad
versus
Sephiroth Crescent - psychic medium struggling for respect
and in a passive role:
President Omar Bongo - or rather, his vexed spirit, unable to move on to the next world


MR BABU ALI

1st December 2010

A variation on the DEAD BANK CUSTOMER format. The extra layer of scamosity is that what he says about politicians siphoning public funds is true, not that it makes his intentions any less criminal.

24th January 2011

Dear Friend, With due respect to your person and much sincerity of purpose I make this contact with you today been 24/01/2011 As I believe that you can be of great assistance to me. My name is MR BABU ALI. i am from Burkina Faso born and bread in Republic of Gabon, I am formal Director BICIG bank of Gabon and also Financial Adviser to the late richest and longest Africa President Omar Bongo. Presently i work with BANK OF AFRICA ECOWAS as telex managing Director. I do not know whether this is your correct email address or not because I only used your name initials to search for your contact.In case you are not the person I am supposed to contact, please see this as a confidential message and do not reveal it to another person and if you are not the intended receiver, do let me know whether you can be of assistance regarding my proposal below because it is top secret and a fast rewarding deal and you will discover it as soon as we proceed.

I am about to retire from active Bank service to start a new life but I am sceptical to reveal this particular secret to a stranger and I hope that you will not expose or betray this trust and confident that i am about to establish with you for the mutual benefit of our families. You must assure me that everything will be handled confidentially.It has been 10 years now that most of the greedy African Politicians used our bank to transfer money overseas through the help of their Political advisers. Most of the funds which they transferred out of the shores of Africa was gold and oil money that was supposed to have been used to develop the continent. Their Political advisers always inflated the amounts before transfer to foreign accounts so I also used the opportunity to divert part of the funds hence I am aware that there is no official trace of how much was transferred as all the accounts used for such transfers were being closed after transfer.I worked as personal Bank Officer to most of the politicians and when I discovered that they were using me to succeed in their greedy act, I also cleaned some of their banking records from the Bank files and no one cared to ask me because the money was too much for them to control. They laundered over $700,000,000,00(seven hundred million) united states Dollars oil and Gold money during the process. As I am sending this message to you, I was able to divert Eight Million Five hundred Thousand American Dollars ($8.5 m) to an escrow account belonging to no one in the bank. The bank is anxious now to know who is the beneficiary to the funds because they have made a lot of profits with the funds.It is more than Eight years now and most of the politicians are no longer using our bank to transfer funds overseas. The Eight Million Five hundred Thousand Dollars has been lying waste but I don't want to retire from the bank without transferring the funds to a foreigner who has account, to enable me share the profits/percentage with the receiver. The money will be shared 60% for me and 40% for you.

There is no one coming to ask you about the funds because President Omar Bongo is dead and i am the only person who knows about this money. I secured everything with original document to back you up when you declare your interest. I only want you to assist me by providing a bank account where the funds can be transferred, You are only required to act on my behalf from there by following my advice because i will be giving you information from time to time concerning bank decisions towards this transfer as soon as you apply in the bank here as the beneficiary of this fund. You are not to face any difficulties or legal implications as everything will be done ok with legitimate Documents and right which can protect us against any breach of law between your Government and my. If you are capable of receiving the funds, do let me know immediately to enable me give you a detailed information on what to do.For me, I have not stolen the money from anyone because the other people that took the whole money did not face any problems. This is my chance also to grab my own but you must keep the details of the funds secret to avoid leakages as no one in the bank knows about the rightful beneficiary.I expect your urgent communication. Upon your response and strong assurance that you will not let me down when this fund gets into your Bank Account, as soon as you declare your interest I will let you know what to do and the transfer procedures without delay.For more details call me with this telephone line +226-75874689, Millions of thanks and abundant blessings to you and to your entire family in this year 2011.(FILL THE FORM BELLOW AND SEND IT BACK TO ME).

Dear Mr. Babu Ali,

I received your mail with very profound interest as the moment I opened it, I had a vision from your late client, President Omar Bongo. His spirit has not yet passed on and will only do so once his funds have been safely transferred. You may not know how I do this, but I am a psychic medium who can contact the deceased from the other side. Lately I have not had much chance to exercise my gift and was glad to receive this mail. I will surely assist you in the safe transfer of President Bongo's funds. My name is Mr. Sephiroth Crescent, and I was ridiculed by everyone I know because I can speak with departed spirits. I am hoping you will understand this.

Yours sincerely,
Sephiroth Crescent

25th January 2011

Dear Mr. Babu Ali,

It is of course no problem. Fate, and President Bongo's spirit, have connected us and I intend to see it through to the very end. Your proposition is indeed an interesting one as I have never had dreamed of such an amount of money being available to one such as me.

The late President is still very eager to see this business go through, as the spiritual waves I get from him are ones of trust and of a positive attitude. Did he perhaps mention you in his last will and testament? Of course I can only draw theories from my psychic readings, never definitive answers.

Unfortunately a phone call is out of the question as my psychic powers are very sensitive, and I can end up tracing the many lines of deceased people who may have contacted the number or have had contact with the phone, and it makes me very ill with a psychic overload. I hope you can understand this, good friend. I can however keep our correspondences through e-mail, as my powers seem to be less sensitive through that means. I am sorry if this inconveniences you in any way.

Sincerely,
Sephiroth Crescent

Dear Mr. Babu Ali,

I am well aware of the risks of this transaction, especially when it concerns someone of such a high status such as President Bongo. I will do everything in my power in both this world and the spirit world to ensure that nothing goes wrong.

Lately however, the spiritual vibrations I am receiving from President Bongo have changed. They are not as joyous as before, and he seems a little more serious. He sent me a message:

"Please make sure that some of my money goes to my children of which I have FOUR."

He placed deliberate emphasis on the word four, perhaps to make sure that we understood that he has four children. Perhaps we should think about giving 20% of the total fund to the children - 10% from your share and 10% from mine. How does that sound? It may be a while before I get the form to the bank as I am going to open a new bank account so that I can keep the money from President Bongo separate from my own money, because I would rather use his money for charity than for my own selfish needs. That may prove difficult as my psychic sensitivity does prevent me from going places as often as I would like. It is also one of the reasons I have so few friends.

Sincerely,
Sephiroth Crescent

MR BABU ALI

26th January 2011

Dear Friend,Mr.Sephiroth Crescent,

Thanks for your message and i am very glad for your serious interestto assist me accomplish maximum success in this transaction. Well,There is no on my side,I wish to offer the 10% to the poor and that isto say that i will have 50% and you will have 30% after giving the 20%to the poor.

If you wish to open a new bank account that is no problem and you mustunderstand clearly that an empty account is very much ok for thetransfer of this fund provided it is a valid and functioning account.Consider this transaction done as soon as you send the applicationform to the bank and once the bank here respond to you that means weare in sucess in life. send the application immediately to the bank toenable us start the transaction.

Thanks and remain bless.your choice is mine.

Mr Ali.
Sephiroth Crescent

26th January 2011

Dear Mr. Babu Ali,

I am glad to be assisting such a kind man like yourself. The 20% that is not going to either of us is going to be split equally between President Bongo's four children, as he has requested. And of course I will use my 30% for charitable purposes, as the adverts I see on TV asking for donations to help those in extreme poverty have touched me to my heart.

I was able to open the new bank account today with Midgar Savings & Trust, and I will endeavour to get the application on its way to the bank very soon.

President Bongo seems at ease lately. His spirit is content to remain in my company, and he sends me visions of the wonderful life he had before he so tragically passed from this world. Lately I have been having verbal conversations with him, and some passer-by who walked by my open window and heard me talking to him has branded me a crackpot and a delusional idiot. Hardly anyone understands my ability as a psychic medium, yet there are many programmes involving them on TV.

Sincerely,
Sephiroth Crescent

"Babu Ali" warns against accepting any other $$ offers. He suggests they would be the bank's way of ferreting out dishonesty (!). In fact, "Babu" doesn't want Sephiroth dealing with other scammers.

Dear Mr. Babu Ali,

Thank you for your prompt response. I have received the answers to the questions and will copy them onto the questionnaire and send it to the bank as soon as I have finished doing the weekly shopping routine. I will have that done very soon.

Although it could be a problem for me, as I am sensing spiritual waves of distress from President Bongo, and it is affecting me as well. He does not tell me why he is feeling this distress and I cannot draw any conclusions. I will have conclude my mail there - it is becoming very difficult to concentrate.

Sincerest regards,

Friend, I hope on you and let us work had to makesure that youreceived this fund into your giving bank account in London. May the lord be with you.

Mr Ali.

Sephiroth Crescent

28th January 2011

Dear Mr. Babu Ali,

Indeed it is working very well. President Bongo, is happy for us to have our shares of the money and that what is not going to us will be going to his children.

He has sent me another message:

"Please make sure that this amount of nearly NINE million dollars does not fall into unscrupulous hands."

And of course, we will stick true to that word, as I do not want President Bongo's, hard-earned money to fall into the hands of someone who would think of spending it on terrible things. I also got in contact with Midgar Savings & Trust this morning and have told them that the new account will be receiving a large amount of money in a short space of time. They have said that this is alright and will authorise the transaction at their end when we are ready.

I hope everything is alright with you, my friend.

Sincerely,
Sephiroth Crescent

28th January 2011

Dear Mr. Babu Ali,

That is good, at least the transfer of the funds between the two banks is all sorted, so hopefully it should be soon when we begin the actual transfer.

Yes I have sent the answers to the bank so hopefully they should be with the bank shortly.

President Bongo's, mood is being rather erratic at the moment. At times he is happy, other times he is sad, but lately I have felt anger in his spiritual vibrations, and it is beating against me and is giving me a headache. I do not know what he is angry at or why he is angry, but the sensitivity of my psychic ability does make it almost unbearable and right now I am feeling physically sick. Perhaps there is doubt as to whether he should have left the care of his funds to us, but I am trying to reassure him that there is nothing to worry about and that his funds will be in safe hands.

Sincerest regards,
Sephiroth Crescent

MR BABU ALI

28th January 2011

Dear Mr.Sephiroth Crescent,

Please, consider this transaction done, if only you follow my advice,may the spirit of the lord be with you, dont sick, for us is going tohave rest of mined soon. All is upto you, i beleive you and i trustyour word, i hope you will not disapoint me by stoping this deal onthe way. because i will finally be in problem if you try to stop thistransaction on the way. Dont worry your self, The living lord is withyou.

Thanks.

Mr Ali

Sephiroth Crescent

28th January 2011

Dear Mr. Babu Ali,

That is good to hear. I will await the bank's response and then hopefully we should be able to start the transaction soon.

Still President Bongo's spiritual vibrations are very angry. It is making me feel very sick and I wonder if I should have even offered to help you in this business. Perhaps if I hadn't, President Bongo would have given me more grief than this. I think I may be having a psychic overload again, it certainly feels that way.

Also, the President has sent me another message:

"Think about my previous revelations. As I revealed, every end has a beginning, and these meet in the middle."

I do not understand it at all, and with the way I am currently feeling, I will not be able to figure it out today. If you have any idea then do not hesitate to contact me.

Dear Mr. Babu Ali,

I have no doubt about your advice, but unfortunately this sickness I am suffering from is one I cannot help. It is one of the negative side-effects of being a psychic medium with the level of sensitivity that I have. I have no intention of stopping the deal, as this was a man's wish before he passes into the spirit world.

Also did you see if you could decipher the President's ,cryptic message? I tried to but sadly I feel so awful that it is difficult to concentrate. It is slowly getting worse. None of my previous psychic overloads have ever been this bad and I feel like I am dying. I would try and go to see a doctor but would they understand me because of what I can do? Also, going to a clinic seems to make me go into psychic overload anyway, so I am stuck with what to do now. I have been trying to tell President Bongo, to keep his spiritual emotions fairly neutral but I think this might be why I have angered him.

I am hoping that this will not last much longer.

Sincerest regards,
Sephiroth Crescent

to the 'Bank':

Dear Sir,

I have read and received this mail and the documentation and have decided that I will be coming over to Burkina Faso to pay the funds in person. Despite the fact that I have something that makes it a problem for me to travel, I would love to get out of my house and see more of the world. Plus, Western Union and Money Gram both have the most appaling customer services of any monetary transfer company. Last time I tried to send £300 to my cousin in San Diego through Western Union and they said that it did not go through, and they would force me to pay a further £2000 to get it to register properly. Money Gram were worse. They told me that it would cost £12000 to get the money there. Therefore Western Union and Money Gram transfers are out of the question.

Would it be possible to take the costs of flights and accommodation out of the fund, as I have not really got the money to get flight tickets and hotel reservations as well as the money to pay the processing fees, and all my credit cards are up to their credit limit. I hope this is not too inconvenient.

Sincerest regards,
Sephiroth Crescent

Dear Mr. Babu Ali,

I have received confirmation from the bank concerning the transfer of the fund into my account and the total cost for processing fees and the like will come to 1,725 USD. Thankfully my condition has eased off a little since President Bongo, is now not feeling so angered. I have decided to travel directly to Burkina Faso to pay the costs in person and was perhaps looking for advice on flights and hotels. This is probably not such a good plan due to my psychic sensitivity, but the only other option was to either pay it via Western Union or Money Gram, and my experiences with both of them were appalling. It is also a good opportunity to get myself out of the house and see the world!

Since my condition is less severe, I have been thinking more about President Bongo's message. I still cannot figure it out. I may manage to figure its meaning later.

Sincerely,
Sephiroth Crescent

MR BABU ALI

28th January 2011

Dear Friend,

Thanks for re-forwarding me the official approval messages which youreceived from the bank here which the bank here request you to pay thebank fee of 1,725 dollars. Before i go further,i want to begin firstby sending you my Big Congratulations to you for gaining approvalletter and document from the bank of africa burkina faso. Surely,youhave done a very noble and wonderful job from your end there bygaining official approval of the fund for us.For sure,you are a verybrave,very intelligent and very wise person.I must commend your greatefforts and contributions in making this transaction a real success.Iowe you millions of thanks as my true business partner. After goingthrough the approval letter,i understood that the bank here requestedyou to come here and pay the bank fee in person, and i stillunderstand that the bank informed you that if you can not be able tocome down over here in person that you should choose to send the feethrough wester union money transfer world-wide to enable them themfinish up with all the process and start the transfer, my dearfriend,i want you to understand that strictly for security reasons andin order not to spoil this deal,it will not be wise for me to involvemyself directly in this transaction either with the bank As i told youbefore,i want you to keep this deal very confidential and let it be atop secret,strictly known between you and me alone because i am stillworking with this bank,if the bank authority here finds out that i wasthe person who gave you the information about this fund in the EscrowAccount here,i will surely lose my job with this bank without anycompensation.Therefore You are only required to act on my behalf fromthere by following my advice.

This is the major reason why i contacted you as a foreigner from acountry quite far from here to collaborate with me in such that we cansuccessfully claim this fund with your assistance and we also sharethe benefits together when i visit you. As i told you before in mysecond message to you in this transaction, i have carefully plannedand calculated everything concerning the smooth success of thisbusiness before contacting you for help. Therefore it will not be wisefor me to advice you to travel down here because the bank authorityhere may ask you some questions which you may be unable to answer,please, for security reasons, go ahead and send the fee by westernunion and you send the information to the bank and tell them that youcant be able to come over here due to your business overseas as youstated in your application form.

Perhaps, this is the major reason why i have involved myself in thisSpecial Deal so that i can benefit from this fund and use my own shareto improve my low standard of living and those of my poor familymembers.

Therefore,you have to go ahead right now and send the 1,725 dollars tothe bank here now,so that the bank will finish up with all the processand start the transfer immediately,

"By the grace of the Lord", the fund will be transfered into your bankaccount as soon as possible. so please try all your best and makesurethat you made the payment today or tomorrow. Thanks for all your great contributions and commendable effortstowards the smooth progress of this transaction and may the AlmightyLord continue to bless you abundantly.

Mr Ali.

As soon as you send the fee 1,725 dollars forward the paymentinformations to the bank immediately and you have to makesure thatyou send the fee with the correct information which the bank here havegiving to you.

[How odd. I don't remember forwarding the 'official' messages to him but somehow he says I had. I only sent a short e-mail about an update in the progress of the 'transaction'.]

Dear Mr. Babu Ali,

I understand that you are concerned witht he confidentiality of this matter but I am reluctant to send money through Western Union because firstly, my nearest Western Union branch is nearly 250 miles away from where I live and secondly, they do not even know what 'customer service' is. I tried to send £300 to a friend of mine in San Diego but apparently it could not be authorised without an extra £2000 on top. I would also prefer to go to Burkina Faso in person as it reassures me that the money is going directly to the bank, as I have heard rumours that certain unscrupulous individuals try to obtain money from Western Union branches, and I do not want this to happen.

You do not have to get too involved, as a matter of fact all I request is a flight to an airport that is close to Burkina Faso and that you meet me there, then I will make my own way to Burkina Faso from there. I will be careful, my friend, and hopefully we will get the fund very soon.

President Bongo's wishes are also for me to travel there directly, so it is best if we do that. He also sent me another message:

"Add that sad joke about your university to the revelation from my previous message."

I never knew that the University Making Us Good Uns had a sad joke about it... and I am not sure whether I want to find out. If you can get me some flight details and a route to Burkina Faso, that would be a great help.

Sincerely,
Sephiroth Crescent

to the 'Bank':

Dear Sir,

I still have to arrange my flights and other necessary transport and accommodation before I can come to Burkina Faso. It could be a while before I actually arrive, but I will send you the details of how I am getting there once everything is arranged.

Sincerely,
Sephiroth Crescent

MR BABU ALI

28th January 2011

friend, i advice you to tell the bank that tomorrow there will receivethe fee from western union, ok, since it will take you 250 miles, thenmake a way for it now and travel over there and send it by westernunion. i am done.

[Hold on, didn't I already tell him why I couldn't send it by Western Union?]

Sephiroth Crescent

28th January 2011

Dear Mr. Babu Ali,

I have already told the bank that I am making my way to Burkina Faso to pay in person, and I just contacted the Western Union branch and was told that they are closed for three months. I have no other option but to go there in person. Can you perhaps get me the details of a flight that either goes straight to Burkina Faso or goes nearby and I will perhaps get a taxi from there.

Although I did figure out the meaning of President Bongo's first message. The closest I could get is

"FOUR ONE NINE"

Is this some sort of code for his briefcase? I know that some briefcases have three-number combination locks and was wondering if this was perhaps the code for the briefcase. Did you know whether President Bongo had a briefcase or not?

Sincerely,
Sephiroth Crescent

MR BABU ALI

28th January 2011

thanks

 

Looks like the Lad got the point! Chalk up another victory for Sephiroth!

If you don't understand the FOUR ONE NINE reference, dear reader, or why it might have annoyed "Babu Ali", please read (or re-read) the main page of this web site, especially the section YES IT IS A SCAM.
