These are some scam emails in which the recipient is asked to present themselves as next-of-kin or other beneficiary to a deceased rich person. Often emails like this are linked to a real tragedy or a real individual's death. The scammer, however, does not have any connection to these real events, and neither is he the professional person that he is pretending to be.

He will require fees to be paid for various expenses relating to the transfer of the money. The money, however, does not exist, and no money will ever be transferred.

MRS. CLAUDIA CARLO
CREDIT ACCOUNTS OFFICER
HEAD OFFICE BANCO DE ORO UNIVERSAL BANK .
12 ADB AVENUE, ORTIGAS CENTER, MANDALUYONG CITY
PHILIPPINES.
Good Day,

Let me start by introducing myself, I am MRS. CLAUDIA CARLO, CREDIT
ACCOUNTS OFFICER BANCO DE ORO UNIVERSAL BANK. I am writing you this letter
based on the latest development at my bank, which I will like to bring to
your personal edification. I am a top official in charge of client
accounts in (EQUITABLE PCI BANK) which is now BANCO DE ORO UNIVERSAL BANK
inside the Philippines the merger was late 2007.

In 2001, my client was going through a horrendous divorce in the United
States of America and was on the verge of losing most of his estate to his
vicious and diabolical wife. As a result of this alarming predicament, my
client came to me with a very brilliant idea. He transferred some funds,
ten million two hundred thousand dollars ($10.2m) to a fixed deposit
account in my bank under an alias which only the two of us knew about as
the confidentiality of the matter was necessary for his protection.

Due to his untimely death in early 2004, the funds have been sitting in
the account ever since and will continue to do so perpetually unless we do
something about it. This is where you come in. I located you through an
agency that helps seek people by their email. My client did not declare
any next of kin in his official papers including the paper work of his
bank deposit. Against this backdrop, my suggestion to you is that I would
like you as a foreigner to stand as the next of kin to our client so that
you will be able to receive his funds. I want you to know that I have had
everything planned out so that we can come out successful. I have
contacted an attorney that will prepare the necessary document that will
back you up as the next of kin to my client. All that is required from you
at this stage is for you to provide me with your Full Names, Home Address
and telephone number so that the attorney can commence his job.

The allocation of our money will be as follows: 30%($3.06m) to you for
your part in this, 70% for me. Again, I will be in charge of everything
else. I will assume all responsibilities for this endeavor so you don't
have to worry about any legal ramifications, just what you will do with
all that money. Your urgent response is highly anticipated so please email
me through this email address ([email protected]) for more
details on this transaction as soon as possible.This should be kept very
secret and confidential.

Hope to hear from you soon .

Kind Regards,
Mrs. Claudia Carlo.

Dear Friend,

With all due respect to your personality, I request that you do not feel disturbed as I know that business of this magnitude will surely make one apprehensive.I write to solicit your utmost confidence, knowing too well that we have neither known nor met each other before, but because you and the late Mr.William Lewis MAYBE from the same country. Having searched through the internet,from where I got your email address, I hereby request that you become the Next of Kin to the late customer of our bank, Late Mr.William Lewis, who died in West Africa here and abandoned a fixed deposit of Eight Million,Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars (USD$8.500.000.00), without a specified next of kin to inherit the deposit at the time of his death.(Maybe he did this because of the fact that he was into crude oil deals called)"Oil bunckering" here in west Africa.

My name is DR BRIGHT SULEIMAN. I am an accountant and the accounting officer to the William Lewis in the GHANA COMMERCIAL BANK ACCRA,GHANA. In the financial Laws of the Federal Republic of GHANA, the holding bank is required to repatriate any abandoned fund by a foreigner if nobody comes to claim the said funds after three (3) years of the confirmation of the death of the depositor.

For the past three years, all the effort of our Customer Service Department to trace any relative of the Late Mr. William Lewis has proved abortive. I do not want this funds to go into the hands of our corrupt government officials,who have embezzled our national funds all these years. My interest in this abandoned deposit is as follows:

(1) To see that this abandoned deposit is not handed over incidentally to some corrupt officials of the government.

(2) To make you the Next of Kin to the late Mr. William Lewis and whom he has willed the said deposit before his death.

(3) To ensure that the deposited funds is transferred to you as your INHERITANCE.

(4) To ensure that my own share of it is invested wisely in your country in any viable area of investment.

Bear in mind that the entire transaction will be risk -free involvement from your side and legitimate since the funds will be coming to you as your INHERITANCE. If this proposition is acceptable by you, respond to me ASAP but if not acceptable by you, do not take advantage of it to betrayme.

In view of this, I got your contact when making a research on a foreigner I will use in this great opportunity. For your assistance, I will give you 40% of the total amount, then, 10% has been mapped out to be donated to the motherless babies home, while the remaining 50% will be for me and my partner.


Upon the receipt of your response, I will send you by fax or e-mail the letter of application which you will type, sign and send back to our bank to enable us start this transaction.

NOTE: PLEASE REPLY ME THROUGH EMAIL:([email protected])

I have a proposal for you - this however is not mandatory nor will I in any manner compel you to honor against your will. I am 50 years, married and father of four children. I work with a bank (one of the leading banks in the West Coast of Africa ) as Director of Bills and Exchange.

Here in our bank there exists a dormant account for the past 8 years which belong to a late customer (Mr. Raymond Beck) who died on Egypt Air Flight 990. Kindly see the website below: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/americas/502503.stm

When I discovered that there had been no deposits or withdrawals from this account for this long period, I decided to carry out a system investigation and discovered that, no family member nor relation of the late person is aware of this account. This is the story in a nutshell.

Now I want an account overseas where we can gradually move these funds to. Thereafter, I have plans to destroy all related documents for this account. It is a careful network and for the past eleven months, I have worked out everything to ensure a hitch-free operation. The amount is not so much at the moment, in addition to all the accumulated interest the balance in this account stands at-(USD 9.5 million).

My questions are:
1. Can you partner this project?
2. Can I give you this trust?
3. What will be your commission?

If you can sponsor this transfer and stand as the available relation to the deceased then consider this and get back to me as soon as possible. Finally, it is my humble prayer that the information as contained herein be accorded the necessary attention, urgency as well as the secrecy it deserves. I expect your urgent response if you can handle this project.

NOTE: PLEASE REPLY TO EMAIL:([email protected])


Respectfully yours,

Mr.Frank William.

Dear,

I am Mr.Kenneth Ogini. the Bills and Exchange at the foreign remittance department of the commercial Bank here in Lome Togo. I am writing this letter to ask for your support and cooperation to carry out this business opportunity in my department. I discovered an abandoned sum of $9.565m (Nine million, five hundred and sixty five thousand United States dollars only) in a fixed deposit account, That belongs to one of our foreign customer Who died in November 2004 in a private hospital here in Lome Togo. Since we got information about his death we can not release the money unless somebody applies for it as the next of kin or relation to the deceased. As indicated in our administrative guidelines.

Unfortunately, neither the family members nor the relations have appeared to claim this money. At this discovery, I decided to do business with you and release the money to you as the next of kin or relation of the deceased for safety and subsequent disbursement since nobody is coming for it and I don't want this money to go into the bank treasury as an unclaimed debt. The banking law and guidelines of our Bank stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed for a period of seven (7) years it will be transferred into the bank treasury as unclaimed fund. The need for a foreigner as next of kin in this senses is occasioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner and a citizen cannot stand as his next of kin or heir.

I agreed that 30% of the money will be for you as foreign partner; thereafter I will visit your country for disbursement according to the percentage indicated. Therefore to enable the immediate transfer of the fund to you as indicated. You must apply to the bank as relation or next of kin of the deceased. This is 100% percent legal. As a banker I know this,and this will be a testimony for you and i if you make up your mind,for the claim.

If you are interested in this proposal and you are ready to handle this proposal perfectly and with trust, then contact me at once,and we can work out the details, and the issue of your compensation. If you are not interested,and have found this email offensive or you think this is a joke,please do not reply.

My name is Martin Rodger; I am a solicitor with the Falcon Chambers UK,
the personal attorney to Andreas Schranner the President Transfield Worley

I have made several inquiries to locate any of my clients extended
relatives, which has also proved unsuccessful. As a matter of fact, he is
having a fixed time deposit of £7.5million with a finance house here in
the United Kingdom (CHASE SECURITY COMPANY LONDON); also stocks worth 17
million euros (with interest) being managed by his broker. Hence I
contacted you to assist in repatriating the money and property left behind
by my client before they died or the Finance house where he made the
deposit might declare them unserviceable.

The Finance house issued me a notice to provide the next of kin to the
deceased or have the account confiscated within a short period of time
owing to my unsuccessful search for the relatives getting to 9 years now,
I seek your consent to stand in as the next of kin to the deceased since
you are from the same country with my late client and we all stands the

Here are two variations:

This scam mail pretends that the recipient is the named beneficiary. Notice, however, that the 'To' field is blank (the mail will have been BCCed to many email addresses), and nobody (neither the deceased nor the recipient) is anywhere mentioned by name. This is because (a) the scammer does not yet know your name; and (b) there is no genuine Will to refer to.

Greetings,

I understand that through Internet is not the best way to link up with you because of the confidentiality which my proposal demands.


However, I have already sent you this same letter one month ago, but I am not sure if it did get to you since I have not heard from you.


I wish to notify you again that you were listed as an Heir to the total sum of (Three Million Six Hundred Thousand British Pounds) in the codicil and last testament of the deceased. (Name now withheld since this is our second letter to you).


I contacted you because you bear the surname identity and therefore can present you as the Heir to the inheritance funds.

I therefore reckoned that you could receive these funds as you are qualified by your name identity. All the legal papers will be processed in your acceptance. In your acceptance of this proposal, we request that you kindly forward to us your letter of acceptance; your current telephone and fax numbers and a forwarding address to enable us file necessary documents at our high court probate division for the release of this sum of money.

Please indicate your interest immediately for us to proceed. I shall feed you with full details of this transaction upon receipt of your reply towards this proposal.

I look forward to hearing from you.
