The scammer's basic kit; photos of widows and orphans, passports, certificates and court documents, all guaranteed 100% fake or stolen

These are all from one scammer's next of kin scam, and show to what lengths they will go, to convince the victims that the 'transaction' is real.
It is actually very easy to produce documents like these even with simple photo editing software. Banks' and other companies logos can easily be found and 'stolen' from websites (or passed from scammer to scammer), or genuine blank documents may be scanned and altered. Signatures may just be something the scammer has scribbled himself, or may be scanned from other sources. Mostly the documents are very poor quality, but some can appear to be very genuine.
The names 'Christian Eich' and 'Andreas Schranner' have been used many times for next of kin scams - this is just one version , and other scammers using the name may use other documents.

Related to the above, though not necessarily the same scam is this questionnaire - a bit more professional looking but perhaps the scammer hasn't realised is that the real African Development Bank is not a commercial bank as such, but more a financial instution involved with distribution of funds, and more on a country to country level.

And if you're a scammer, you just can't have too many certificates in your kit :)

Even really awful ones

Another Bank of Africa "Approval" for a next of kin scam

And this one is pretending to be from the Standard Bank but it has no branches in Benin, and there is no Stanbic Trust Bank
