This email with the subject "Please get back to me at your earliest convenience" was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Thu, 25 Dec 2014 12:42:36 -0800 and has been classified as a Generic Scam.

The sender was Mr. John Silvester Varley <>, although it may have been spoofed.


I am the chief executive in charge of Auditing and Accounting section of the Barclays Bank Plc. 
London, United Kingdom. I crave your indulgence as I contact you in such a surprising manner but I 
respectfully insist you read this letter carefully as I am optimistic it wills open doors for 
unimaginable financial rewards for both of us.

In my department I discovered an abandoned sum of Eight Million Four Hundred Thousand US Dollars 
(US$8.4m) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign customers (Mr. Rick Rescorla from 
Irish-Republic of Ireland) who died alongside with his wife, in a tragic terrorist attack that 
wreck the World Trade Centre on 09/11/2001 in New York, United States of America.

On January 16th 2000, Mr. Rick Rescorla made a FIXED deposit of the sum of Eight Million Four 
Hundred Thousand US Dollars (US$8.4m) for Nine(9) years and after the expiration of his Fixed 
deposit, and payment due,I discovered that he and his wife was among the dead victims in a tragic 
bomb blast that wreck the World Trade Centre on 09/11/2001 in New York. Find out more on the below 

On further investigation, I found out that he did not leave a next of kin and all attempts to trace 
his next of kin were fruitless since he died with his wife (MISS. NEIL RESCORLA), and they have no 
children. Upon my further investigation, I discovered that Mr. Rick Rescorla did not declare any 
next of kin in all his official documents, including his Bank Deposit paperwork. This fund still in 
our bank and the interest is being rolled over with the principal sum at the end of each year and 
no one will ever come forward to claim it. According to the British Banking Law has contained in 
the memorandum of association, as at the time he deposited the money, at the expiration of Nine (9) 
years, the money will revert to the bank treasury as unclaimed Bill if no one apply for it.

Since we got information about his death, no one ever come forward and claim his money because the 
bank cannot release it unless somebody applies as next of kin or relation to the deceased as 
indicated in our banking guidelines, but unfortunately there is no one that comes for the claim. It 
is therefore upon this that I now decided to make this business proposal to you so that the money 
could be released to you as the next of kin or relation to the deceased for safety and subsequent 
disbursement since nobody is coming for it and I don't want this money to go into the bank treasury 
as unclaimed Bill.

The request for a foreigner as next of kin in this business is occasioned by the fact that the 
customer was a foreigner. I agree that 40% of this money will be for you as a foreign partner in 
respect to the provision of a foreign account, 50% would be for me and 10% for any expenses that 
may arise and also part to the homeless, Privileges and motherless homes.

Thereafter I will visit your country for disbursement according to the percentages indicated. 
Therefore to enable the immediate transfer of this fund to you as arranged, you must apply first to 
the bank as relation or next of kin of the deceased indicating your Name, Your private telephone 
and fax number, Your Home Address and Occupation for easy and effective communication and location 
wherein the money will be remit.

2. ADDRESS:...
4. AGE:...
5. SEX...
8. PHONE...
9. FAX:...

Upon receipt of your reply, I will send to you by fax or email the full details of the transaction 
and application form to apply to the bank. I will not fail to bring to your notice that this 
transaction is hitch free, 100% risk free and that you should not entertain any atom of fear as all 
required arrangements have been made for the transfer.

You should contact me on my private email at ( as soon as you 
receive this letter. Trusting to hear from you and please kindly give me a call. This is my private 
phone number: +44 203 695 3422
