Subject: RE: BS: A new wrinkle on Nigerian Scams
This is one I never saw before. I have to refute my own death to save a bank account I did not know I had--located in "Edinburgh, London, England". A curse on Rick Jones, who told them I was gone!!!!
From the desk of:
Foreign Operation/Remittance Manager
Bank of Scotland,
41 South Gyle Crescent
Edinburgh, EH12 0BR , London
Attention: BeneficiaryÊ Amos H. Jessup
ALIVE OR DEAD
In the course of our General Auditing and Account revision of the first quarter of the year 2008 ending within few days from now, we discovered that the Bank Accounts belonging to some Benefactors have been changed on the basis that the owners have died some time last year or have given out an authorization note of change of data.
After the investigations however, it was revealed that there are Foreigners who are collaborating with Retired Staffs to make these changes illegally without the knowledge of the Bonafide Benefactors and one traced to your own change is this Mr Rick Jones who said you are dead, hence they have forwarded some documents of funeral service held for you so as to divert your fund.
They have also forwarded this bank account below as the new account that will receive this money.
Bank: Hang Seng Bank
Bank Address: 83 Des Veoux Road , Central - Hong Kong
Account Name: Rick Jones
Account Number: 235-325172-882
Bank Code: 024
Swift Code: HASEHKHH
But we wanted to confirm if actually this is true and hence decided to write to your email address which after 2 days from now and there is no response, we will then know that you are dead indeed and go on with the transfer.
If proved otherwise by you that you did not die, please forward to us all the related Benefactors particulars including your Telephone number,contact address.
These details from you will help to assist us reach a conclusion that you are not dead.
Anything contrary to this claim will help us charge this man to court and prosecute him while your fund will be paid to you immediately without any further delay.
You have to get back to us on time for us to commence legal proceedings against Mr. Rick Jones and his accomplices.
