Many of these will come from e-mail addresses that are variants of the real bank. I have received 'certificates of deposit' from Halifax, Barclays, Coventry and Capital Finance. The Barclays "Private" Bank even sent me a login to view my account but before I could "transfer" I had to pony up an "activation fee."

Clues:
1. Not a secure URL. Not HTTPS or padlock because those would actually cost the pus bag some money
2. The URL has minor variants from the real bankk URL. i.e. barclaysbankplc.com.uk or the fake one : barclays-bank-plc-uk.com.uk
3. Many of these come from an e-mail server named SIFY.COM which I have traced to Africa. Must be the AOL of Africa.
4. They always want you to send funds by Western Union or Moneygram to an individual. I always insist that it be an interbank transfer so provide the TELEX and routing number. You might have an unusually stupid scammer that gives you a really traceable TELEX which you can then provide to the FBI Internet Crime site or to Interpol.

Welcome to Scamwarners Richard.

Concerning free mail provider;

http://www.sifycorp.com/

No bank would use a free email address, like Yahoo, Hotmail, Walla, Sify, etc.

No real business proposal would be sent via a free webmail service.
