Subject: Natwest Bank of London variation

From: Jim Shipp <>

This email with the subject "Natwest Bank of London variation" was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Fri, 10 Mar 2006 11:05:44 -0800 and has been classified as a Generic Scam.

The sender was Jim Shipp <>, although it may have been spoofed.

The attached is very similar, if not identical, to the JUTENBACK scam email in SCAMDEX, but I thought the variation might be of interest.

I have left all (expanded) header information intact in the attached .txt copy, and trust you will strip personal info before any posting.

Thanks for your efforts!

From:Mr  Micneae steve
Natwest Bank of London,
United Kingdom.
Email :


My name is Micheal Steve and I 
work in the International operation Department in a Local Bank here in 
London, United Kingdom. On a routine inspection I discovered a dormant 
domiciliary account with a BAL.Of 36,000,000 (Thirty Six Million 
Pounds. (BPS) on further discreet Investigation, I also discovered that 
the account holder has long since passed away (dead) leaving no 
beneficiary to the account. 

The bank will approve this money to any 
foreigner because the former operator of the a/c is a foreigner and 
from Iraq in particular and I am certainly sure that he is dead, and 
nobody will come again for the claim of this money A foreigner can only 
claim this money with legal claims to the account Holder; therefore I 
need your cooperation in this transaction. 

I will provide the 
necessary information needed in order to claim this Money, But you will 
need to open an account where this can be transferred. If interested 
send your private Telephone No. And Fax number including full details 
of the account to be used for the Deposit I wish for utmost 
confidentiality in handling this transaction as my job and the future 
of my family would be jeopardized if it were breached. 

I want to 
assure you that the transaction is without risk if due process is 
followed accordingly.Finally,I will give you 25% for your corporation. 
I look forward to a favorable response from you,via my private mail box: Yours, 
Micheal Steve
