Subject: CAN I TRUST YOU ON THIS? CONTACT ME URGENTLY
I request to discuss this matter with you privately. Honestly, I
believe your decision or advice in this information that I will explain to
you could change my financial status and yours positively.
In view of the fact that you share the same surname, foreign background
with our late customer, who lost his life during the Katrina
Hurricane. I therefore see it as an opportunity to present you as his relation
to enable the deposits in his bank account released to you.
I am his account officer at Bank of Scotland London (UK) where his
fund was deposited. My name is Richard Grant. I got your contact from Net
Detectives ( www.netdetective.net ) in my private search for a genuine
person to stand in as his relation. Presently, his account has accrued
so much interest since 2001, while the current balance in his account
is about Nine Million Eight Hundred Thousand Dollars.
This reason alone is why I contacted you, to claim the deposits and
interest from his account with your help because the deposits cannot be
released without the help of a foreigner from the United States.
I contacted you for two reasons. Firstly, you both come from the same
country and share the same surname, which makes the claim most
Secondly, as his consultant and personal Account Officer, I have been
officially notified and instructed by the bank to provide and forward
the particulars of the deceased next of kin so that the funds in his
account can be remitted into his Next of Kin's account in accordance with
the Bahrain Laws.
However, as his personal and close confidant, I want you to know that
our late customer died interstate, i.e he died without leaving a Will
and all my efforts to locate any of his relatives whom I can present to
the Bank has proved abortive
I strongly believe that Bank of Scotland does not deserve to inherit
These reasons led to my resolve to claim the funds, which was why I
contacted you. With your permission, I will proceed to establish you as
the next of kin by providing the necessary document that will allow the
bank to release the deposits to you as his relation.
Afterwards, we shall together share the proceeds from this transaction.
Let me know your decision in this issue, because your response to this
proposal will make me give you further information to proceed with the
initial step in this transaction.
If you find yourself able to work with me, Kindly send me your response
to my private email address firstname.lastname@example.org
The entire project is expected to last for about six working days.
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....
