Yet another email asking if they can borrow my bank account in exchange for a financial reward and an email from the halifax askling me to update my security details.
How many people fall for these bank scams? How many people are just plain greedy?
Here is today's request for help shifting money.
From The Desk Of Baker & Mckenzie Law Firm,1 Essex Street, London WC2R 3HY,United Kingdom. Before i proceed, May i kindly identify myself ,My names are Barrister Harry Goldman and i work as a lawyer to the above mentioned law firm in London Uk.This mail is written to solicit your assistance to be presented as next of kin to my late Clients Mr Frederick M Wong and his wife Ms Lilla C wongwho died in a plane crash some years back. They lost their lives aboard Egypt Air Flight 990 which crashed in the Atlantic Ocean on October 31 1999.You can View this page for further information http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/americas/502503.stm He deposited the sum of fourty seven million United States Dollars ($47,000,000) in a financial firm in Europe andi am in custody of the Certificate of Deposit and all other vital documents he had while alive.In His will before he boarded that ill fated flight , He said and i quote" When i pass on , my wife automatically becomes the beneficiary of all my estates and fundsbut infortunately, His wife was on board with him in that ill fated flight so, the both couples died at the same time.Ever since after their death, the bank where he deposited his funds has contacted me severally for his next of kin to claim his funds and become the beneficary of the funds,But i have tried all my best to locate anybody that is related to my late client all to no avail and that is why i am contacting you for us to avail ourselves of this rare and Gods given opportunity. The deal is very simple and clear as i have used my experience as a renown lawyer to carve out legal modalities of claiming these funds from the bank where they were deposited. I will have to empower you with the Certificate of Deposite (C O D) and pose you to the bank as the Next Of Kin to my late client thereby making you the beneficiary of these funds. I have been mandated by the bank to do this before the end of this month as failure to provide the Next of Kin will attract funds confiscation by the Government of Netherlands.I do not want this to happen to the deposited funds, hence i contacted you to partner with me in the claims. NB: We can invest these funds in Energy as a joint venture or share the funds in 60% /40% ratioDisregard this email as the contents are highly confidential if you are not interested and respond to me asap if you are interested in the deal.
