Ibrahim Mohammed is a scammer alias who’s seeking for a better life and a new guardian who can help him take care of his 6.7 million dollar inheritance.
Again, a scam directed to gready victims who very much wants the poor boy’s money, and will be willing to pay a lot of fees, bribes and commissions in order to help Ibrahim to transfer all of his money out of the care of his oncle and into your bank account.
In the end, there will be no money. Only a neat sum of pay-offs.
Here’s Ibrahim’s mail:

Assalam alaikum, may the peace of gracious Allah be with you. Please I have problem which I need help from you that’s why I decide to write you for help.
I have a proposal for you. However it’s not mandatory nor will I in any manner compel you to honour it against your will. I am in a difficult state of mind and was moved to send this proposal to you after my prayer.
I am Ibrahim Mohammed, the only son of my late parents. My mother died when I was just 4 years old, and since then my father took me so special. My father was a highly reputable business magnet (a cocoa merchant) who operated in the capital of Ivory Coast during his days. It is sad to say that he passed away mysteriously when he came back from business trips abroad in France. His sudden death was linked or rather suspected to have been masterminded by our uncle who travelled with him at that time. But Allah knows the truth.
Before death of my father he called me on his bed side and told me that he has the sum of Six million, Seven Hundred Thousand United State Dollars. US($6.700,000) left in fixed/suspense account in one of the banks here in Abidjan ,that he used my name as his only son as the next of Kin in depositing the money.
I am 19 years old and a university undergraduate before I abandoned my school due to my uncle’s bad treatment to me since death of my father. The death of my father actually brought sorrow to my life coupled with my uncle’s late bad behaviour to me. I am confused and really don’t know where to start from.
I am in sincere desire of your humble assistance to help me have the money transferred to you as my guardian for better life for me and invest the money into a business to be looked after by you.
What I am doing is as lead by my faith. I hope you are somebody I can trust that will not take me for granted or take undue advantage of my helpless condition because of my manner of approach to you.
If you know you are capable of handling this and help me rearrange my life. Please consider this my proposal and get back to me for more information.
My salaam to your family.
My sincere regards,
