I received the email below, after contacting my Insurance Company, regarding my Life Cover Policy. The day after i received an email from the company, with which they had attached a Beneficary Form, i received this \"Scam\" email. I will be contacting my insurance company to advise them of what has happened. The Scammer, must somehow have accessed their system, which is how it entered my mail box, as a \"Reply\" type email to me - dont know how they do this??

I replied to ask \"WHO\" is this Mr Anthony?? Send me further details, and i will investigate this gentleman!!

I have since received another email, asking me to provide ALL MY PERSONAL DETAILS - INCLUDING MY PASSPORT DETAILS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I wasnt surprised by this request - who else would try and offer you a 50% share of $50,000,000 haha...............

PLEASE BEWARE - DONT GIVE THESE PEOPLE ANY OF YOUR PERSONNAL DETAILS - THEY WILL SCAM YOU AND YOU WILL LOOSE EVERYTHING - EVEN YOUR IDENTITY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


1ST EMAIL:

Hello,We need to discuss about Anthony. reply for more details.Regards, Philip.

2ND EMAIL:

Good day,

Let me introduce myself again, I am Philip B., Staff of Investec Bank (England). I am contacting you concerning Anthony, a deceased customer and an investment he placed under our banks management 8 years ago. I would respectfully request that you keep the contents of this mail confidential and respect the integrity of the information you come by as a result of this mail. I contacted you independently of my investigation and no one is informed of this communication. I would like to intimate you with certain facts that I believe would be of interest to you. In 2004, the subject matter; Mr Anthony came to our bank to engage in business discussions with our private banking division. He informed us that he had a financial portfolio of Fifty million united states dollars, which he wished to have us turn over (invest) on his behalf. I was the officer assigned to his case; I made numerous suggestions in line with my duties as the de-facto chief operations officer of the private banking sector, especially given the volume of funds he wished to put into our bank. We met on numerous occasions prior to any investments being placed.

We have scanned every continent and used our private investigation affiliate companies to get to the root of the problem. It is this investigation that resulted in my being furnished with your details as a possible relative of the deceased. My official capacity dictates that I am the only party to supervise the investigation and the only party to receive the results of the investigation. What this means, is that our dear late fellow died with no known or identifiable family member.

In the process of review of our financial report by my department, I discovered that both of you have a similar last name; hence I contacted you so that I can give you further briefing on my intention and how to disburse the funds and estate he left behind. My proposal; you share the same surname with our late client; I am prepared to place you in a position to instruct the Bank to release the deposit to you as the closest surviving relation. Upon receipt of the deposit, I am prepared to share the money with you in half. That is, I will simply nominate you as the next of kin and have them release the deposit to you. We share the proceeds 50/50. ec etc...........
Please get back to me immediately for further communication
I await your response. Regards,Philip T.

Good day,
Let me introduce myself again, I am Philip T., Staff of Investec Bank (England). I am contacting you concerning Anthony, a deceased customer and an investment he placed under our banks management 8 years ago. I would respectfully request that you keep the contents of this mail confidential and respect the integrity of the information you come by as a result of this mail.

I was the officer assigned to his case; I made numerous suggestions in line with my duties as the de-facto chief operations officer of the private banking sector, especially given the volume of funds he wished to put into our bank. We met on numerous occasions prior to any investments being placed.
I encourage and gave advice on how the funds should be invested, Based on my advice, we spun the money around various opportunities and made attractive margins for our first months of operation, the accrued profit and interest stood at this point at over 2 million United States Dollars, this margin was not the full potential of the fund but he desired low risk guaranteed returns on investments. This bank also gives the choice to depositors of having their mail sent to them or held at the bank itself, ensuring that there are no traces of the account and as I said, rarely they do not nominate next of kin. Most Private banking clients apart from not nominating next of kin also usually in most cases leave wills in our care, in this case; the deceased died without a testate. In line with our internal processes for account holders who have passed away, we instituted our own investigations in good faith to determine who should have right to claim the estate. This investigation has for the past months been unfruitful.
We have scanned every continent and used our private investigation affiliate companies to get to the root of the problem. It is this investigation that resulted in my being furnished with your details as a possible relative of the deceased. My official capacity dictates that I am the only party to supervise the investigation and the only party to receive the results of the investigation.

We share the proceeds 50/50.
As a banker we see so much cash and funds being re-assigned daily. I would want us to keep communication for now strictly by email Please and phone number i will provide you when next i read from you, note I am a family man; I have a wife and children. I send you this mail not without a measure of fear as to the consequences, but I know within me that nothing ventured is nothing gained and that success and riches never come easy or on a platter of gold. This is the one truth I have learned from my private banking clients. Do not betray my confidence. If we can be of one accord, we should act swiftly on this.Please get back to me immediately for further communication I await your response.
Regards, Philip T.

Hello ,   I am delighted to hear from you, my name is: David Miller, the Group Secretary of Investec Bank UK. But please you must keep this communication as private as possible, due to the nature of my job here in the UK. I have decided to contact you because Investec Bank has just concluded an investigation in a bid to find anyone who is related to Merrick but it yielded no result. In 2004, Merrick setup a fixed offshore account with US$14,000,000.00 which has yielded an interest of US$3,360,000.00 over the past eight years here in Investec Bank. Merrick did not put down any next of kin on the documentations. Merrick was a contractor, after several notices were sent to him when it was payable, no response came from him. But report from our investigations have now shown that he died intestate. In a situation like this; the funds will now revert to the UK Government since nobody has come to redeem the money. Based on this circumstance, I have all the essential information to have these funds released to you by my bank since you stand a very good chance as you bear the same surname. What I expect from you is honesty and dedication, the money needs to be moved from here with your aid and you don't have to bother yourself about legitimacy because I will handle all that. The only thing I need from you is your sincere co-operation and I assure you that this deal be executed under a legitimate planning that will protect me and you from any violation of the law. Like I proposed; since I have exclusive access to his file, you will be made the beneficiary of these funds. You do not have to have known him. For all your troubles I propose that we split the money in half (50% for you and 50% for me). In the banking circle this happens every time. Please accept my apologies, keep my confidence and disregard this message if you do not appreciate this proposal I have offered you. All confirmable documents to back you up shall be submitted to my bank, as we move on; I will guide you on every step. Your earliest response to this letter will be appreciated.  I want to know if you are willing to follow up this business seriously before I can give you more details about this transaction. I will need your full names and private contacts (ADDRESS, PHONE & FAX) just as they will appear on the documents to process the claims. Please do not betray my word. If we can be of one accord, we should act swiftly on this. Please get back to me immediately via this my private email. Regards,   David Miller.
