A Scam Email with the Subject "ATTN: UNPAID BENEFICIARY RELEASE FUNDS," was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Mon, 19 Jul 2010 11:45:27 -0700 and has been classified as a Generic Scam. The sender was UNITED NATIONS PROGRAMME <firstname.lastname@example.org>, although it may have been spoofed.
UNPAID BENEFICIARY, It is obvious that you have not received your fund which is to the tune of Â1,000,000.00(One Million Great British Pound Sterling) due to past corrupt Governmental Officials who almost held the fund to themselves for their selfish reason and some individuals who have taken advantage of your fund all in an attempt to swindle your fund which has led to so many losses from your end and unnecessary delay in the receipt of your fund. The National Central Bureau of Interpol enhanced by the United Nations and Federal Bureau of Investigation have successfully passed a mandate to the current Prime Minister of United Kingdom his Excellency Mr.David Cameron to boost the exercise of clearing all foreign debts owed to you and other individuals and organizations who have been found not to have receive their Contract Sum, Lottery/Gambling, Inheritance and the likes. Now how would you like to receive your payment? By CHECK or ATM CARD? ATM Card: We will be issuing you a custom pin based ATM card which you will use to withdraw up to Â10,000 per day from any ATM machine that has the Master Card Logo on it. Also with the ATM card you will be able to transfer your funds to your bank account. The ATM card comes with a handbook or manual to enlighten you about how to use it. Good if you do not have a bank account Check: To be deposited in your bank for it to be cleared within three working days. Your payment would be sent to you via any of your preferred option and would be mailed to you via UPS. Because we have signed a contract with UPS which should expire by the 22nd of July 2010 you will only need to pay Â280Pounds instead of Â400Pounds saving you Â120.00Pounds! So if you pay before July 22nd you save Â120.00Pounds Take note that anyone asking you for some kind of money above the usual fee is definitely a fraudster and you will have to stop communication with every other person if you have been in contact with any. Also remember that all you will ever have to spend is Â280.00 nothing more! Nothing less! And we guarantee the receipt of your funds within the next 3 working days after the receipt of payment Below are few list of people like you who have received their payment successfully.

Vargas: COUNTRY: Australia Name : Rovenda Elaine Clayton: COUNTRY: Japan Note: Everything has been taken care of by the Federal Government including taxes, custom paper and clearance duty so all you will ever need to pay is Â280Pound. This is because UPS C.O.D (Cost on Delivery) service is not applicable to international shipping according to their terms.
