A Scam Email with the Subject "CAN I TRUST YOU" was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Wed, 20 Jul 2011 06:48:09 -0700 and has been classified as a Advance Fee Fraud/419 Scam. The sender was "Barr. Peters Smith" <email@example.com>, although it may have been spoofed.
My names are Barrister Peters Smith, a UK citizen(a Barrister and a Charttered Accountant)I trained and work as an External Auditor for the "GUARANTY STANDARD FINANCE BANK" (GSFB), UNITED KINGDOM.I am sure this email shall meet you in utmost surprise. I had taken pains to find your email contact through the "World Email Directory". On a routine audit check last month, I discovered a large sum in an investment account that had been dormant for twelve years now.The entire sum totaling 11.3 Million GBP Sterlings (about $19 Million United States Dollars).Now banking regulation/legislation in the UK demands that such funds be tagged as "UNCLAIMED FUNDS" and reverted into the BANK'S TREASURY. As a banker, I see so much cash and funds being reverted to the BANK'S TREASURY. I want you to stand in as the next-of-kin since you are from a foreign country so that this huge amount will come to us instead of being reverted into the BAnK'S TREASURY; By virtue of my legal profession and years of charttered experience,I have legally secured all relevant documents currently in my possession (both legal and Banking) that will facilitate putting you forward as the legal claimant/beneficiary of the funds.I have exclusive access to his file and he has no next-of-kin, whosoever,you are particularly qualified since you are from a foreign country. For my efforts i shall desire 40% of the total 11.3 Million GBP Please reply me on my personal email here:firstname.lastname@example.org for more details and commencement. If you are interested, contact me urgently on my email: email@example.com; or on Phone: +44-70-4573-9682 I will be awaiting your timely reply to proceed.This is a matter of confidentiality.Keep is personal! Truely, Barrister Peters Smith _________________________________________________________ This mail sent using V-webmail - http://www.v-webmail.org
