My name is MR. PETER SIDWELL; I am the auditor and head of computing
department of Natwest bank here in United Kingdom. There is an account
opened in this bank in 1997 and since my inception into office in 2001,
nobody has operated on this account again. I have the courage to look
for a reliable and honest person who will be capable for this important
transaction. In order to transfer out 3,000,000.00 (Three Million Pounds
Sterling) after going through some old files, I discovered that if I do
not remit this money out urgently. It will be forfeited for nothing.
Please respond immediately I will use my position and influence
to effect the legal approval and onward transfer of this fund into your
account with appropriate modality you shall follow. You will stand to
get 30% while 5% will be for the expense that will be incurred during
the process, and 65% will be for me.
I will furnish you in with
further details upon your reply God bless.
Mr. PETER SIDWELL
A lot of thanks for your message. Your urgent response confirmed all my
trust and confidence in you to deliver this project. with the arrangement in
place , it will be done in accordance to the laws of both countries as these
funds will be secured out legally and transfer to your country.But before I
will tell you all you need to know about this project, there are few
questions I would want to get the answer straight from your heart
considering the fact that we have not seen or known each other before and
most importantly, a lot of money that our life and future depend on is
The questions are as follows:
(1)Are you sure you will maintain the level of confidentiality needed
to achieve this transaction as planed?
(2)Are you sure again
that i will not have problems with you in collecting my own share of the
money after it had been transferred to your account?
(3)How much do you think we can pay on the entire amount as tax or rate
in your country?
(4)Is your phone line secured and private, if so can i have your
telephone number to enhance our relationship verbally?
(5)What investment ideas do you have in mind as I wish to invest
Finally what kind of business are you into???
As soon as I hear from you, I will tell you all you will need to know
including the security measures we will take to accomplish this transaction.
If you received a similar letter, please ignore it. Do not answer it.
If you do, you will end up on more of the mailing lists used by the
criminals behind this fraud. Read more....
