How many of have you received?

    My name is Andrew Greene, I am the credit manager of a bank here in the
    United Kingdom. I am contacting you concerning a business transaction, of a
    huge sum of money from a deceased account. Though I know that a transaction
    of this magnitude will make anyone apprehensive and worried, but I am
    assuring you that everything has been taken care of, and all will be well at
    the end of the day.I decided to contact you due to the urgency of this
    I am the account officer of a Scottish Businessman named Gerald Welsh who
    died in an Egyptian airline 990 air crash along with his wife in 31st
    October 1999 ,with other passengers on board.Since his death, none of his
    next-of-kin are alive to make claims for this money as his heir, because
    they all died in the same accident(May their souls rest in peace).We cannot
    release the funds from his account unless someone applies for claim as the
    next-of-kin to the deceased as indicated in our banking guidelines. Upon
    this discovery, I now seek your permission to have you stand as the next of
    kin to the deceased,as all documentations will be carefully worked out by me
    for the funds (US$5,000,000.00)to be released in your favour as the
    beneficiary‘s next of kin. It may interest you to know that we have secured
    from the probate an order of mandamus to locate any of the deceased
    beneficiaries. Please acknowledge receipt of this message in acceptance of
    our mutual business endeavour by furnishing me with the following
    information if you are interested.
    1. A Beneficiary name.......In order for me to prepare the document for
    transfer of the funds in your name.
    2. Direct Telephone and fax numbers.......For our personal contact and
    mutual trust in each other. Upon your acceptance I shall send you a copy of
    my international passport for more confidentiality and trust.
    I shall be compensating you with a princely sum of a million dollars
    ($1Million dollars) on final conclusion of this project for your assistance,
    while the balance $4 million dollars shall be for me for investment
    If this proposal is acceptable by you,please endeavour to contact me
    immediately.Do not take undue advantage of the trust I have bestowed on
    you.I await your urgent response to my request.
    Best Regards,

    P.S. All replies regarding this transaction should be forwarded to my

    Do these type of scammers really think people are that stupid?? I am so sick of opening my email to be filled with garbage. You can't even spam it out because they change the title, content around. :cursing:
  2. OK, he used the words "Princely Sum" and I can't stop laughing.
  3. I get emails like that all the time.
  4. At least once a week. I am now a multi-millionaire.
  5. I've gotten similar emails before too! somehow, they got my last name..and put it as the deceased person's last name too..creepy
  6. was reported in the papers a while back about this kinda scam..

    a few elderly people fell for it and one particularly young lady who was desperate for cash or something..they lost a few thous as a result :sad:..

    but i never got this kinda email before.. did receive an email from a Prince of Brunei once though.. it was a fun read
  7. :biggrin: I get these ALL the time! so annoying.
    are there actually people who fall for this stuff? :sad:

  8. Oh you should see my bank account. The computers can barely manage all the digits before the comma. :graucho:
  9. Yes I got these plenty of times, normally it's from some "prince" in Africa who is trying to "hide" some money from the government and needs a bank account to deposit it.:angel: Damn Scam:cursing: Like someone is just going to give out there bank account info and address like that:rolleyes:
  10. We had a client fall for it not too long ago. He kept insisting that it was the real deal no matter how many times we told him it was a scam and that he should contact his bank ASAP :Push:
  11. OHH, that's horrid!

    I used to get them, now my spam filter doesn't let anything in.
  12. Enough of them so that I have begun answering at least some, when I am in the mood, with the following form letter. I hope it will be of use to you.
