A Scam Email with the Subject "From Mr. Ban Ki-moon United Nations Secretary." was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Thu, 26 Feb 2015 08:04:26 -0800 and has been classified as a Generic Scam. The sender was "Mr Ban Ki Moon"<firstname.lastname@example.org>, although it may have been spoofed.
From Mr. Ban Ki-moon United Nations Secretary.
We write in regards to your delayed Contract/Inheritance Funds in the sum of Eight Million Five Hundred United States Dollars (US$8,500,000.00) which you are yet to receive as a result of your inability to raise the required fee(s) to conclude your Transaction.
The United Nations has decided to proffer a solution that will make it easier for all the Beneficiaries to receive their Funds. We understood that some Fees are required in order process and Transfer your Funds into your Account. We are also aware that most Beneficiaries do not have these required fees.
We have therefore deliberated with the Bank in charge of this payment to allow Beneficiaries the privilege of receiving their Funds in two (2) or three (3) installments. In this case, Beneficiaries will no longer be required to pay the fee at once but part of it depending on the number of installments such Beneficiary will like his/her Funds to be released to him/her.
Write the Bank and request that you want your fund to be transferred to your account by installments payment,(ATM & Wire transfer) so that once the first payments enters into your account you can then use money from there to facilitate the transfer of the remaining balance, once the first installments enters into your account withdrawal from your account to FIRST BANK Tennessee USA. Online transfer procedure.
The FIRST BANK USA. in Tennessee USA which is now in charge of your Payment has agreed to give the Beneficiaries the option of receiving their Funds at once, in two or three installments. Therefore, you should send him your full Name and telephone number/your correct mailing address.
It is a pity that, because of a peanut that was required of you to pay to enable your acclaimed fund payment legal documents to be release to you to enhance and expedite the successful conclusion of your long awaiting contractual/inheritance fund within a frame work of 48hrs made you to stop communication.
What a shame and embarrassment? If actually, you have spent money to execute this contract and have spent money in the hands of the fraudsters and impostors without achieving your goal in receiving this fund, what stops you from giving out one chance benefit of doubt and sacrifice with this token fee to see your fund payment successfully completed?
This will help the beneficiaries to pay part of the fee and receive part of their Funds with which such beneficiary can upset the remaining fee and receive his/her complete Funds.
To break this down:
One Hundred Dollars ($100) fee will facilitate the release of One Million United States Dollars (US$1,000,000.00) only. Two Hundred Dollars ($200) fee will facilitate the release of Two Million United States Dollars (US$2,000,000.00) only.
Three Hundred Dollars ($300) fee which is the total fee will facilitate the release of your Full Contract/inheritance Funds in the sum of Eight Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars (US$8,500,000.00).
However, Feel free to inform us how much you can raise should you cannot afford any of the above Mentioned installment so as for us to talk to the Bank to know how much out of your Funds they could release to you with the amount you can come up with.
This is the best the United Nations can do for you and you are advised to take advantage of this opportunity. Kindly, Get back to me immediately with your option so that i will forward you the contact person at the paying Bank in FIRST BANK in Tennessee USA. to indicate your preferred option.

NOTE: Do not be shy to indicate the amount you have in hands (no proper-amount is so small to trigger installments-payment base on our discussion with the Bank) so that the first payment will move to your account for you to confirm the existence of the fund before your proceed for the balance.
