Another story from the metier of disaster scams. We already know all this.
This time an earthquake, before that the tsunami, then the plane crash or the explosion of a ship or an oil rig. But now a quake that caused the busy banker to send millions of these mails. Pathetic. In addition, the identity of Shayne Nelson was stolen.
The scammers, we realise, can’t think of anything else, what else can one think of? Therefore: Don’t answer, don’t send any documents, no money, put the mail in the rubbish bin.
Hello My Dear Friend,
Am Mr. Shayne Nelson, Group Chief Executive Officer , Emirates UAE. I write this proposal in good faith hoping that I will rely on you in a business transaction that requires absolute confidentiality and of great interest and benefit to our both families.
In 2007,one Mr.Husson Kiwan an Emirate Citizen and has your country in his file as his place of origin, made a fixed deposit for 36 months, valued at US$30.000,000.00 (Thirty Million United States Dollars only).
I was his account officer before I rose to the position of Group Chief Executive Officer , Emirates UAE . The maturity date for this deposit contract was 27th of September 2010. Sadly Mr.Husson was among the death victims in the September 2009 earthquake in Indonesia that left over 1,200 people dead while he was there on a business trip. Since the last quarter of 2010 until today, the management of my bank has been finding means to reach him so as to be certain if he will roll over the Deposit or have the contract sum withdrawn.
When I discovered that this will happen, I have tried to think up a procedure to preserve this fund and use the proceeds for business. Some directors here have been trying to find out from me the information about this account and the owner, but I have kept it closed because I know that if they become aware that Husson is late, they will corner the funds for themselves.
Therefore, I am seeking your cooperation to present you as the one to benefit f rom his fund at his deat I have done enough inside the bank arrangement and I only have to put in your details into the information network in the bank computers and document and reflect you as his next of kin beneficiary. If you concur with this proposal, I intend for you to retain 50% of the funds while 50% shall be for me.Kindly forward your response. I will be waiting to hear from you as soon as possible. ThanksBest Regards,
Group Chief Executive Officer,
Emirate NBD Bank, Dubai
