HSBC certainly does not have it easy. Accused of supporting criminal and terrorist organizations for years, the bank had to pay a heavy fine. This attracted the scammers like moths to a flame. Here, Nigerians probably show their dumbest side and steal the identity of a leading manager of the bank in Canary Wharf at the same time. The scammers don’t mind. Of course, none of the story is true, the bank nor the manager Emmett has anything to do with it. Therefore, do not send any personal data, no amounts that would justify the transport of a card. Send it straight to the digital dustbin. That’s all this stupid email with an idiotic story is worth.

A woman by name (MRS: CINDY MAY A CITIZEN OF USA) came to our office with an application stating that you gave her the power of attorney to be the beneficiary of your Outstanding funds. She made us to believe that you are dead and that she is your next of kin. We decided to send you email through this address hoping to find out if you are dead or alive and also to find out if you at any time gave this woman the power of attorney to represent you. We are almost ready to release part payment of $21.5M USD of your outstanding funds to her but we decided to contact you before we can take any action because of the sensitivity of the transaction and the amount of money that is involved:
