I was first notified by a Mr. Joe Okoh that I was a winner of a sweepstakes named SunSweetWin Promo. Lottery. Then I was informed by the customer service from Capitec Offshore Bank that I had a domicillary account with a balance of $2.5 Million. They directed me to Barrister Kenechi Ajah for further documentation.
I emailed the barrister at kenechiajah@yahoo.com and he quickly responded. He stated that I needed to purchase a Stamp Duty Document and a GID Clearance which he quoted in "pounds sterling silver".

I was not able to come up with all of the fees, so he agreed to cover the remaining balance if I would reimburse him after I received my winnings. I sent him $500 thru Western Union to London, England with the receiving name of Michael Walter.

I then received an email from customer care dept. at Capitec online banking stating that the barrister had processed the stamp duty and GID clearance, but that he had not endorsed them. They asked me to contact him again and implore him to do this.

When Barrister Kenechi Ajah contacted me again, both by email and by phone, he claimed that I needed to pay another fee for endorsement.

When I told him that I had no more money, he no longer wanted to speak to me.

Nigerian lottery scam extended

AUTHOR: Marie - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Friday, October 22, 2004
After reporting this scam, I received a rebuttal. The rebuttal was from a man claiming to have won money thru the same process from which I was involved. This made me apprehensive to whether it was a scam or not, so I did a little bit of investigating. I was amazed to find the large amount of scams originating from Nigeria, which are designated as a 419 scam by the EFCC.

I was contacted by another man named Mr. Ali Hassan. He claimed to be representing the Central Nigerian Bank (CBN) He also claimed that he was aware of the misrepresentation from Barrister Kenechi Ajah which resulted in an irregularity in my account. He said that he would report the barrister to the authorities and would assist me with documentation needed for a funds transfer. He proceeded to call me by phone several times in the early morning.

He reverted back to the original scam by telling me that I needed to send $670.00 via Western Union for postage, handling, and insurance on documentation needed for endorsment. He claimed that it was merely my trust that was hindering me from receiving my supposed winnings.
I have emailed several banks and authorities for confirmation of this supposed account. I have also enquired about the individuals that have been in contact with me, asking for verification of their employment within the establishments. I have received no response or verification.
