| This scam came to me by email about a mr merrick thomas who died and had loads of money |
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.
