If you are reading this, and are not a regular reader, you’ve presumably come here hoping that you may in fact be the next in line to a fortune. You aren’t. Lots of people get the same e-mail, which is an attempt to scam you out of personal information and eventually money.
Think about it, please. What banker offers to split the money with you? What banker contacts you from a generic gmail address (email@example.com)? What banker has tracked you down as the “next of kin” but doesn’t address you by name?
Please do not be so gullible in the future. Sooner or later it will cost you money!
INTER-SECURETRUST & PRIVATE BANKING PLC,
I am Ray Wells, the system director at the INTER-SECURETRUST & PRIVATE
BANKING PLC,i wish to solicit for support and assistance from you to
carry out this business opportunity in my bank.
Lying in an inactive account is the sum of Twenty Five Million
USDollars(25,000,000:00$) belonging to a foreign customer(Hopcraft
Lawrence) who was a gas consultant here in UK,he happened to be
during a business trip with his wife(Hopcraft Pauline) on board the
Swissair Flight 111 , which crashed into the Atlantic off Nova Scotia
september 2nd 1998,info of this crash was on the news which we have
to notify his relatives but to no avail,see link below for more
Ever since he died the bank has been expecting his next of kin to come
claim these funds which they cannot release unless someone applies for
as next of kin, as indicated in our banking guidelines,unfortunately he
has no family member in UK or Over-sea who are aware of the existence
the money,at this junction, i have decided to do business with you by
soliciting your assistance in applying as the next of kin to the bank
the money will be released to you as i do not want the money to go into
the bank treasury as an unclaimed bill,because the banking laws and
guidelines stipulates that if such money(s) remains unclaimed for a
period of ten years(10yrs),the money will be transferred into the bank
treasury as an unclaimed bill.My request for a foreigner as next of kin
occasioned by the fact that the customer was a foreigner and a British
cannot stand as next of kin.
