To The Attention Of Beneficiary
We wish to bring to your notice about the due process of your outstanding Contract/Inheritance payment which was suspended by the management of this Bank by stopping the telex unit to pause the transfer of your contract/inheritance funds to your nominated bank account.
During the auditing of all financial records in our Bank ( UNION BANK OF NIGERIA), it was discovered from the records of outstanding payment with our Bank that, your name is next on the list of those who will receive their funds.
As a result of this development, verification conducted by credit department in conjunction with the Debt Verification Panel on your contract/inheritance fund, your file has been endorsed for immediate payment awaiting your confirmations.
Meanwhile, three men came to my office few days ago with a letter, claiming to be your true representative. They were two CANADIANS and a BRITISH BARRISTER and they introduced themselves as Mr. Tim Parker and Mr. Roland Gulf and the Barrister's name David Mayfield.
Below is the information they presented to my office:
BANK ACCOUNT: 250880939815
As the Finance Director of this Union Bank, I was supposed to Release your Funds to them but I refused to do so because you did not inform us officially of the sudden change in the beneficiary bank account. I also wanted to hear from you first. Due to the Nature of my job, I would not want to make any mistake in releasing your Funds to anyone except you whom is the Recognized Bona fide Beneficiary to these Funds.
Please we would like you to confirm to this office immediately if these men are truly from you or not, so that our bank will not be held responsible for paying into wrong account. You are also requested to fill and forward the information below for verification purposes so that your fund valued U.S$17 million dollars will be remitted into your nominated bank account
(1) Your Full Name And Address:...................... .............
(2) Your Age And Marital Status:....................... ...........
(3) Your Occupation:................... ............................
(4) Your Telephone Number:....................... ..................
(5) Your Nationality:.................. ..............................
As soon as we receive the above requested information, we will proceed with the process of remitting your funds into your bank account. We are sorry for any inconvenience the delay in transferring of this fund must have caused you. We are waiting for your urgent response in regards to this notification.
Youre faithfully,
Austen Obigwe
Finance Manager/Union Bank Of Nigeria.

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell. And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
