Very Sophisticated Identity/Money Theft :

http://www.utexas.edu/admin/utpd/atm.html


March 22, 2004

Dear Sir/Madam,

I humbly crave your indulgence in sending you this email and should it not
meet your business or personal ethics, please accept my apologies in
advance.

My name is David Roberts, the Chief Executive of Personal Financial Services
of the Barclays Group with head office at 54 Lombard street, London EC3P
3AH.

I am writing this letter to solicit for your support and assistance to carry
out a project concerning a deceased customer of the bank by name Dr. Victor
Morgan, an oil magnate and
philanthropist who died on the 14th of June 2002 in a ghastly motor accident
in London with his wife Mary and two of his sons.

Lying in his inactive account in one of our branches is the sum of Thirty
Million United States Dollars ($30,000,000.00). Ever since he died the bank
has placed a stop on all transactions
on this account pending when his next of kin would come forward for
necessary actions, identification and collection.

Unfortunately from the investigations and confirmations from his attorney he
has no family members who are aware of the existence of the money and as
such, we have decided to do business
with you, standing in as the beneficiary of this funds, and then the money
will be released to you, after the due processes have been followed.

Obviously we do not want this money to go into the Bank's Treasury because
the banking law and guideline stipulates that if such funds remains
unclaimed for five years the money will be
transferred into the Banks' Treasury as unclaimed debt.

This would not take too much time to get done as his lawyer already has the
necessary Letters of Administration and court orders from the British high
court which are part of the documents
required by the Barclays bank to process fund release approvals.

To do this work 75% of the money will be for our end, 20% will be yours
while 5% will be for any expenses incurred during the transaction.

Please reach me via my private email address,if willing to do business
with us.

Regards,

David Roberts.

Mr Brown Akar
Bank Of The North,
Victoria Island Branch,
Lagos, Nigeria.
TEL: 234-80-33571616

ATTN: MD/CEO
I am Mr Brown Akar, Branch Manager with Bank of
the North, Victoria Island Branch, Lagos, Nigeria.
I have an urgent and very profitable business
proposition for you that should be handled with
extreme confidentiality.
On January 6,1998 a Foreign Oil Consultant and
contractor with the Nigerian National Petroleum
Corporation (NNPC) Mr. James Herbert by name made a
numbered time Fixed Deposit for twelve calendar months
valued at US$35M (Thirty Five Millio United States Dollars Only)
in my branch.
Upon maturity I sent a routine notification in
accordance with the Bank policy to his forwarding
address but got no reply.
After a month we sent a reminder and finally we
discovered from his contract employers the Nigerian
National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) that Mr. James
Herbert died from an automobile accident.
On further investigation, we found out that he died
without making a Will and all attempts to trace his
next of kin was fruitless. I therefore made further
investigations and discovered that Mr. James Herbert
did not declare any next of kin or relations in all
his official documents including his Bank Deposit
paperwork in my Bank.
This sum of US$35M has been carefully moved out of
my bank to a Security Company in Europe for
safekeeping.
No one will ever come forward to claim it and
according to Nigerian Law, at the expiration of 7
years the money will revert to the ownership of the
Nigerian Government if nobody applies to claim the
fund.
This prompted us to contact you.We will like to front
you as the next of kin of our late client thereby
making you the legal beneficiary of the sum of $35
million U.S Dollars that is presently in a Security
Company in Europe.
I contacted you because it is against our code of
ethics to own and operate foreign accounts and your
assistance would be needed to claim the money in the
Security Company in Europe.
We have unanimously agreed that 25% of the entire sum
would be for you if you agree to take part in this
profitable transaction,70% for me and 2 of my
colleagues while the remaining 5% would be used to pay
back the expenses that may be incurred during the
course of the transaction by both parties after the
fund has been claimed and lodged in your account.
In the event that you are genuinely interested in the
transaction,the following information would be needed
from you to expedite action.
1) Your Full Name and Address that would be used to
establish you as the next of kin of our late client
thereby making you the legal beneficiary of the fund.
This would ensure that the Security Company in Europe
releases the Consignment/Fund to you.
2) Your Private Mobile,Telphone and Fax numbers where
you can be reached at all time because this
transaction entails constant communication.
The transaction is 100% risk free as all modalities
has been perfected to ensure the hitch free success of
the transaction.
If you are interested, send the requested information
via email so that we can proceed and after sending it you call me.
I await your response urgently.

Regards,
Mr Brown Akar

I am contacting you in regards to a business transfer
of a hugh sum of money from a deceased account. Though
I know that a transaction of this magnitude will make
any one apprehensive and worried,but I am assuring you
that all will be well at the end of the day. We
decided
to contact you due to the urgency of this transaction.

PROPOSITION;

We discovered an abandoned sum of US$20,000,000.00
(Twenty Million Dollars) in an account that belongs to
one of our foreign customers who died along with his
entire family. Since his death, none of his
next-of-kin
or relations has come forward to lay claims to this
money as the heir.

We cannot release the fund 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, we now seek your permission to have
you stand as a next of kin to the deceased as all
documentations will be carefully worked out by us for
the funds (US$20,000,000.00)to be released in your
favour as the beneficiary's next of kin.

It may interest you to note that we have secured from
the probate an order of madamus to locate any of
deceased beneficiaries.Please acknowledge receipt of
this message in acceptance of our mutual business
endeavour by furnishing me with the following;

1. Beneficiary name and address.
2. Direct Telephone and fax numbers.

These requirements will enable us file a letter of
claim to the appropriate departments for necessary
approvals in your favour before the transfer can be
made. We shall be compensating you with 2 Million
Dollars on final conclusion of this project, while the
rest shall be for us.

Your share stays with you while the rest shall be for
us for investment purposes.

If this proposal is acceptable by you, do not take
undue advantage of the trust we have bestowed in you,
I await your urgent

mail.

Credit Card Scam - here's a doozie

"We all receive emails all the time regarding one scam or another; but last week I REALLY DID get scammed! Both VISA and MasterCard told me that this scam is currently being worked throughout the Midwest, (could eventually happen here) with some variance as to the product or amount, and if you are called, just hang up.

My husband was called on Wednesday from "VISA" and I was called in Thursday from "MasterCard." It worked like this: Person calling says, "This is Carl Patterson and I'm calling from the Security and Fraud department at VISA. My Badge number is 12460. Your card has been flagged for an unusual purchase pattern, and I'm calling to verify. This would be on your VISA card issued by 5/3 bank. Did you purchase an Anti-Telemarketing Device for $497.99 from a marketing company based in Arizona?"

When you say "No". The caller continues with, "Then we will be issuing a credit to your account. This is a company we have been watching and the charges range from $297 to $497, just under the $500 purchase pattern that flags most cards. Before your next statement, the credit will be sent to (gives you your address), is that correct?"

You say, "Yes." The caller continues..."I will be starting a fraud investigation. If you have any questions, you should call the 800 number listed on your card (1-800-VISA) and ask for Security. You will need to refer to this Control #". Then he gives you a 6 digit number. "Do you need me to read it again?" Caller then says he "needs to verify you are in possession of your card. Turn the card over. There are 7 numbers; first 4 are 1234 (whatever), the next 3 are the security numbers that verify you are in possession of the card. These are the numbers you use to make Internet purchases to prove you have the card. Read me the 3 numbers." Then he says "That is correct. I just needed to verify that the card has not been lost or stolen, and that you still have your card. Do you have any other questions? Don't hesitate to call back if you do."

You actually say very little, and they never ask for or tell you the card number. But after we were called on Wednesday, we called back within 20 minutes to ask a question. Are we glad we did! The REAL VISA security dept. told us it was a scam and in the last 15 minutes a new purchase of $497.99 WAS put on our card.

Long story made short...we made a real fraud report and closed the VISA card and they are reissuing as a new number. What the scam wants is the 3 digit number and that once the charge goes through, they keep charging every few days. By the time you get your statement, you
think the credit is coming, and then its harder to actually file a fraud report. The real VISA reinforced that they will never ask for anything on the card (they already know).

What makes this more remarkable is that on Thursday, I got a call from "Jason Richardson of MasterCard" with a word for word repeat of the VISA Scam. This time I didn't let him finish. I hung up.

We filed a police report (as instructed by VISA), and they said they are taking several of these reports daily and to tell friends, relatives and coworkers."


Dear friend,

I am a private investor based in europe. A group of government officials from an african country contacted me with an offer. I am to solicit and state their offer, if your intrest is genuine, you will be contacted for further briefing.

You will be made a beneficiary of a very huge sum of money and will be transfer to you. A high compensation awaits you, the remaining balance(minus the intrest, handling and tax clearance charges, which will be offset by us and deducted from the transfer sum) to a nominated bank account in Cayman Islands. I don't think i need to spell out the importance of secrecy in this matter considering what is involved.

Let me state clearly here that the account you will be providing does not need to have funds in it, it is only needed to be active and be able to receive the funds in question.
I need your quick response to this mail to indicate your intent, by
forwarding your details to me.
This is important as we would need to talk and have a meeting to discuss the modalities of this offer.

For further clarification please contact me through my private number 00 31 627 402 254 and fax number 00 31 645 720 198, or better still through my
email address: kaundachambers@netscape.net

best regards

Barr. Eric Kaunda
