A Scam Email with the Subject "The Truth of the Matter about your Payment" was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Sun, 25 Jul 2010 03:47:42 -0700 and has been classified as a Generic Scam. The sender was " Dr. Colby Stewart"<email@example.com>, although it may have been spoofed.
My name is Dr. Colby Stewart; I am the Director Foreign Funds Payment Department Central Bank of Nigeria. I am delighted to contact you directly for open confession and for you to know the truth of the matter and the reason why you have not received your overdue contract inheritance approved sum of Twelve Million Five Hundred Thousand Dollars Only ($12.5M) up to this time.
The truth is that your local partner or representative whom claimed to have introduced you into this contract inheritance payment came to my office some time ago as the Director Foreign Funds Payment Department Central Bank of Nigeria who is in charge of all foreign transfer and made an agreement with me to assist him and transfer your $12.5M to you and he will pay me compensation sum of $250,000 as soon as you confirm your funds into your account.
The agreement was signed between both of us without legalizing it in the court and after I commenced on the processing of the fund transfer in my Central Transfer Swift Board ready for final transfer into your account, your local partner decided to play over my intelligence by deciding to abandon me and use a Cash Diplomatic System of payment through this Bank to deliver your payment to you in your country without my consent not knowing that the Cash Diplomatic System Payment office Is under my department and when I found out I stopped all the movement of the payment and he went at my back to use ATM System of Payment to pay you without knowing that it is under my department and I stopped it again.
Last week your local representative still came back to my office to plead with me for a fresh agreement to transfer the fund into your account again and promise not to disappoint me again and he submitted the below bank account details on your behalf for the transfer:
Bank Name: DEUTSCHE BANK TRUST COMPANY AMERICAS
Bank Address: 300002, Russia Tula, Zarechensky area, street
Account Name: Edward Smith
Account Number: 04410090
Swift code: BKTR US 33
When I looked into this account details I observed that the name of the account holder is different from your own name and I decided to contact you directly to know if you are the true beneficiary of this account and also let you know the simple reason why you have not received your payment up to this time.
Please kindly go through the above bank details and confirm to me if the account is your correct bank account details and get back to me immediately to avoid paying to the wrong account. Feel free to call me on +234-806-2446060 as soon as you read this message before the transfer will be effected.
Dr. Colby Stewart;
Director Foreign Funds Payment Department.
Central Bank of Nigeria.
