yes please tell


Here is the response I got from the scammer.

Hello Aktar,

Thanks for your swift response. I will formally introduce myself to you because I had to disguise on my LinkedIn profile for security reasons. I am Ms. Rita Clifton, CBE, MA (Cantab), FRSA. I serve as Non-Executive Chairman of The Times pollster and serves as the Chairman of BrandCap Ltd. and Populus Limited. I have been an Independent Non-Executive Director of Nationwide Building Society since July 1, 2012 but also running a contract as an account officer at Nationwide Building Society since 2004. I have been Senior Independent Director and Independent Non-Executive Director at Ascential plc since May 2016. I'm a Member of the Government's Sustainable Development Commission and serves on the Board of Advisors of the Judge Institute of Management Studies at University of Cambridge. In the New Year's Honours list 2014, I was made a CBE for services to the advertising industry. I am sorry to have encroached into your privacy in this manner.

So I would expect you to know that a lady of my status will not just be out here to waste your precious time, because it will be unprofessional, hence I have the sole conviction that this opportunity I'm about to give to you don't come handy. I would respectfully request that you keep the contents of this mail confidential and also respect the integrity of the information that you are coming across as a result of this mail. I contacted you privately and as such no one is aware of this communication thus the reason why I want us to communicate strictly via our private email.

The process in accomplishing this deal is legitimate and the deal is approximately risk free as risk management has been put in place. Meanwhile be free to ask me any question as to your doubt and skepticism after you might have gone through the proposal because it's the most likely way we can establish the trust required to be partners on this deal. However without delays; I will immediately proceed with the details of the proposal as said in my introductory Email on LinkedIn and I hope you keep this confidential.

I am contacting you concerning an abandoned sum of $17,500,000.00 USD. In June 2006 a customer called Rasheed Aktar to our bank for business discussions and investment, as the officer in charge of his transaction then, I encouraged him to consider various growths of funds with prime ratings. Then he invested Nine Million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars only. Based on my advice, we were able to spin the initial deposit with profit and interest to 10.5 million U.S Dollars. After few months; my bank (Nationwide Bank) sent several notice to him without response and unfortunately, my client died in a car crash along with his nuclear family at France while on sabbatical in the summer of 2010, may their soul rest in peace. He died without leaving a Will and several efforts were made to find his extended family through your embassy without success. Because of the sensitive nature of private banking, most customers don’t nominate next of kin in their investment, also usually in most cases leave their WILLS in our care, in this case; our now deceased client died in-testate.

It is quite clear now that our dear client died with no known or identifiable family member. According to practice, the Private banking sector will by the end of this year broadcast a request for statement of claim to Nationwide Bank Limited, failing to receive viable claims they will probably revert the deposit to the Management of Nationwide Bank Ltd. This will result the money entering the Nationwide Bank accounting system and the portfolio will be out of my hands and out of the private banking division. What bothers me most is that according to the laws of my country at the expiration of Ten {12} years the funds will revert to the ownership of the British Government if nobody applies to claim the funds.

Now, I am prepared to give the necessary details to you as the closest surviving relation of our deceased customer (Rasheed Aktar). I am also proposing that after a successful execution of the business deal, the funds will be shared in the ratio 40/60. You will get 40% and I will be entitled to 60% as the initiator of the deal. You know that I must have done my home work already before contacting you. Although the project is capital intensive, I know I will be able to pull it through following proper banking and legal channels with your assistance at your end. I will tidy up the legal aspect with the assistance of a lawyer who will prepare all the documents that will be needed to transfer the money from London to your country. Once more, I ask that if you find no interest in this project that you should discard this mail and forget I ever contacted you, I ask that you do not be vindictive and destructive; do not destroy my career. An opportunity like this only comes once in a lifetime. I am a family woman and this is an opportunity for me to give my family the best in life. I would want you to think about this and let me know your decision. If you give me a positive response, I will give you the relevant INFORMATION for the successful transfer of these funds and we both enjoy it in peace.

I will give you all the necessary information about this deal when I get your positive response. I am contacting you to assist me because you have same surname/last name with my late client. I anticipate your cooperation. Treat this proposal with utmost confidentially and urgency for a 100% success. Do not take undue advantage of the trust I have bestowed in you.

If you give me positive signals, I will initiate this process towards a conclusion. I wish to inform you that should you not contact me via official channels because our calls are being monitored at the bank.



Regards

RITA

  43. Scam Email : mitchellenson62@gmail.com
    ......,
    Your response is appreciated. The reason I reached out to you is related to an unclaimed fund of $29,650,081.50 USD at my Financial Institution which has been there
    for several years unattended.

    In February 2008, late Mr. Theodore Yulian, an expatriate contractor with Diamond Offshore Drilling Inc. came to our Bank for business discussions and opened an
    investment account. As the officer in charge of his transaction at the point of investment, I encouraged him to consider a few investment packages with a considerable
    rate of returns on investment. He invested Nineteen million, Five Hundred Thousand Dollars ($19,500,000.00 USD) only.

    Based on my advice, we could meticulously have an investment growth on the initial deposit with profit and interest to over 29.5 million U.S Dollars within a couple of
    years. Unfortunately, it was gathered that our client along with his wife and dependent children died in an auto-crash at France while on sabbatical in the summer of
    2012. May their souls rest in peace.

    He died without filing a WILL detailing the disposition of his investment (Money held at my Financial Institution) and several efforts were made to locate his
    extended family through his Embassy which proved abortive. We also developed a handful of supposed effective methods to locate possible relatives as the investor died
    without a valid WILL including the use of websites, cross-checking public data, staging a couple of awareness events at state fairs and even shopping malls, but still
    to no avail and they were all terminated. Due to the sensitive nature of private banking, most clients do not nominate next of kin in their investment; usually in some
    cases leave their WILLS in our care. In this case, our now deceased client died IN-TESTATE.

    It is obvious that the investor died with no identifiable family member. Owing to practice, the Private Banking sector will by the end of May 2018 broadcast a
    request for a statement of claim to NATIONWIDE BUILDING SOCIETY, failing to receive viable claims they will probably revert the deposit to the management of NATIONWIDE
    BUILDING SOCIETY.

    This will result in the money entering the Nationwide Accounting System and the portfolio will be out of my hands and out of the private banking division. My concern
    here is per the laws of my country at the expiration of Ten (10) years; the funds will revert to the ownership of the British Government if nobody applies to claim the
    funds.

    I’m prepared to furnish you the necessary details as the closest surviving relation of our deceased client since both of you coincidentally or I would say as Fate
    would have it bear the same surname. I am also proposing that after a successful transfer of the Inheritance monies to your Account, the funds will be shared in the
    ratio 40/60. You will get 40% and I will be entitled to 60% as the initiator of the transaction.

    We could review the sharing ratio as deem fit, so long it is reasonable and aligned to the mutual benefit. The background work for this endeavor has been laid and the
    foundation is solid before contacting you. Although the project is capital intensive, we shall pull it through following proper Banking and Legal channels with
    assistance at your end.

    I will firm up the preparation of the needed preliminary paperwork with the assistance of an Attorney in ensuring a hitch-free transfer of the Inheritance money from
    London to your Country. Opportunities of this nature do not always come knocking in a lifetime. This might be an avenue to invest in diverse areas. Ponder over my proposal and let me know your thoughts. If you find no interest in my proposal though, please discard the e-mail.

    If you give me a positive response, you can be assured that I would initiate the process to a successful transfer of these funds and we both have our benefits to
    utilize on whatever suits us without any cause to worry. Anticipating a reply from you as soon as possible.

    Mitchel Lenson,
    Non-Executive Director,

  45. I got this maul from Mitchel_lenson@aol.com



    Hello Kevin,

    Thanks for your humble reply. I am Mitchel Lenson , Divisional Director at NATIONWIDE BUILDING SOCIETY. I am contacting you concerning a relinquish sum of $22,500,000.00 USD. In JUNE 2006 a customer named Edward Post, a foreign contractor with Diamond Offshore Drilling Inc. came to our bank for business discussions and investment. As the officer in charge of his transaction then, I encouraged him to consider the various growth of funds with prime ratings.

    He invested Nineteen Million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars ($19,500,000.00 USD) only. Based on my advice, we were able to spin the initial deposit with profit and interest to 22.5 million U.S Dollars. After few months, my Bank (Nationwide Building Society) sent several notices to him without response. Unfortunately, it was gathered that my client died in an auto crash along with his nuclear family in France while on sabbatical in the summer of 2010; July their soul rest in peace.

    He died without leaving a Will, and several efforts were made to find his extended family through his embassy but to no avail. Due to the sensitive nature of private banking, most customers don't nominate next of kin in their investment. Also, usually in some cases leave their WILLS in our care. In this case, our now deceased client died intestate.

    It is quite clear that our client died with no identifiable family member. According to practice, the Private Banking sector will be by the end of August 2018 broadcast a request for the statement of claim to NATIONWIDE BUILDING SOCIETY, failing to receive viable claims they will probably revert the deposit to the Management of NATIONWIDE BUILDING SOCIETY. That will result in the money entering the Nationwide accounting system, and the portfolio will be out of my hands and out of the private banking division. What bothers me most is that according to the laws of my country at the expiration of Ten {10} years, the funds will revert to the ownership of the British Government if nobody applies to claim the funds.

    I’m prepared to give the necessary details to you as the closest surviving relation of our deceased customer since both of you coincidentally, or I would say as Fate would have it bears the same surname. I am also proposing that after a successful execution of the business deal, the funds will be shared in the ratio 50/50. You will get 50%, and I will be entitled to 50% as the initiator of the deal. You know that I must have done my homework already before contacting you. Although the project is capital intensive, we will be able to pull it through following proper banking and legal channels with your assistance at your end.

    Nationwide will provide the legal aspect with the support of a lawyer who will prepare all the documents that will be needed to transfer the money from London to your country. Once more, I ask that if you find no interest in this project, kindly discard this e-mail. Please, do not be vindictive or destructive; Do not destroy my career. Opportunities like this only come once in a lifetime. I have a responsible family, and this is a chance for me to give my family the best in life. Kindly, ponder over my proposal and let me know your decision.

    If you give me a positive response, I will give you the relevant INFORMATION for the successful transfer of these funds, and we both enjoy it in peace and improve our lot in life. If you give me positive signals, I will initiate this process towards a successful conclusion. I wish to inform you that should you not contact me via official channels because our calls are being monitored at the bank.

  77. Thanks for your timely response.For the purpose of clarity I will formally introduce myself briefly.
    I am Mitchel lenson,a senior financial services executive with a 30-plus years career spanning financial services,information technology and asset management.
    Over the years I have held senior positions with a range of financial institutions which are globally recognized.
    I am a non-executive director of NYFIX,a NASDAQ listed company and BCS an AIM listed company and more recently,I became a partner of Olivant and Co., an investment company providing strategic and operational experience along side investment capital to financial services businesses in Europe,the middle east and Asia-pacific.
    Also I have been a NON-EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF NATIONWIDE BUILDING SOCIETY since july 2011,but I have been on contract as an account officer since 2005.
    I would respectfully request that you keep the content of this mail confidential and also respect the integrity of the information contained herein.
    I have implemented risk management procedures to allow us go through this smoothly,yet for the purpose of establishing trust,you may clarify you doubts and concerns by asking me questions...
    I will immediately proceed with the details of the proposal and I hope it's kept confidential..

    I am contacting you concerning an abandoned sum of $22,500,000.00 USD. In June 2006 A customer called xxxxx came to our bank for business discussions and investment, as the officer in charge of his transaction then, I encouraged him to consider various growth of funds with prime ratings. Then he invested Nineteen Million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars only. Based on my advice, we were able to spin the initial deposit with profit and interest to 22.5 million U.S Dollars. After few months; my bank (Nationwide Bank) sent several notice to him without response and unfortunately, my client died in a car crash along with his nuclear family at France while on sabbatical in the summer of 2011, may their soul rest in peace. He died without leaving a Will and several efforts were made to find his extended family through your embassy without success. Because of the sensitive nature of private banking, most customers don’t nominate next of kin in their investment, also usually in most cases leave their WILLS in our care, in this case; our now deceased client died in-testate.

    It is quite clear now that our dear client died with no known or identifiable family member. According to practice, the Private banking sector will by the end of this year broadcast a request for statement of claim to Nationwide Bank Limited, failing to receive viable claims they will probably revert the deposit to the Management of Nationwide Bank Ltd. This will result the money entering the Nationwide Bank accounting system and the portfolio will be out of my hands and out of the private banking division. More worrisome is that according to the laws of my country at the expiration of Ten {10} years the funds will revert to the ownership of the British Government if nobody applies to claim the funds.

    Now, I am prepared to give the necessary details to you to act as a surviving relation of our deceased customer (xxxx).Owing to the clear fact that you bear the same Surname/Last name........

  81. Thank you for your response to my mail well appreciated.

    I know this will come as a surprise to you but let me formally introduce myself to you because I had to disguise on my Linkedin profile for security reasons. I am Ms Cathy Turner, Independent Non-Executive Director at Aldermore Bank PLC, Staines, United Kingdom. I look at your profile on LinkedIn which gives me the assurance of your legibility as a person. I will immediately proceed with the details of the proposal. I am contacting you concerning an abandoned sum of £5,649,400 (Five Million Six Hundred And Forty Nine Thousand Four Hundred British Pounds Sterling) by one of our prominent clients who happens to have the same SURNAME with you. In June 2014, THE DECEASED, a foreign contractor with PetroChina Company Limited & Royal Dutch Shell plc., came to our bank for business discussions and investment.

    Upon maturity, we tried contacting him but to no avail. We had to contact his contract employers and discovered from them that he was involved in an auto crash in Gandia Valencia, Spain while on sabbatical in September 2016 which took his life and that of his companion. I received a notice last week to provide the next of kin of my late client as the officer in charge of his transaction then or the account will be transferred to the government (es-cheat) in 14 days’ time. In the absence of a Next of Kin, this funds becomes the government's benefit once the time elapse. My proposal is that, since you share the same SURNAME with the deceased depositor, I will like you to stand in as his next of kin so that the fruits of this man's labor will not end up as the bank's benefit. I will give further details for your proper understanding upon your acceptance of this proposal. When i get your response, I will let you know the steps you need to take and the sharing ratio of the funds between the both of us on completion of the deal. Treat this proposal with utmost confidentially and urgency for a 100% success. For more information about me please visit: https://www.investors.aldermore.co.uk/about-us/corporate-profile/board-directors and click on Cathy Turner.

    I ask that if you find no interest in this project that you should discard this mail and forget I ever contacted you. Do not be vindictive and destructive; do not destroy my career. An opportunity like this only comes once in a lifetime. If you give me positive signals, I will initiate this process towards a conclusion. I do not want you contacting me through my official phone lines nor official email account. Contact me only through this email address. I do not want any direct link between you and I. My official lines are not secured lines as they are periodically monitored to assess our level of customer care in line with our Quality Management Policy.


    Thanking you in anticipation for your co-operation


    Warm Regards,
    Cathy Turner

  83. I got the email too. Now, the scammer claims to be Neeta Avnash Kaur Atkar, and this the second part of his/her process, where he attaches a pdf that might content virus:

    I want to thank you very much for your concern on this Business Proposal. I assure you that we will both benefit greatly if you follow all my instructions. Before we proceed it is good for us to know ourselves so I would like to welcome this lasting relationship with a brief introduction of my person. I will also want you to please respond back in a likewise manner because it is important that I know in totality the personality upon whom I transact this deal with. You should understand my fears here as this involves a large sum of cash and not stock.

    My proposal is very important to me so please I want you to take the content of this mail very seriously. All I want is an honest business transaction between us.

    I am also the personal accountant to Engr. Richard Avila, a foreign contractor with Royal Dutch Plc who has an investment account with my bank with a huge sum of money in it. My late client was an Oil and Gas contractor with Royal Dutch Plc until his death. He banked with us at Yorkshire Bank and had a very huge sum of money in his account which has still yet not been claimed by anybody as there was no living Will in place when he died.

    The amount of money involved here is $17,500,000.00 USD in account with indefinite interest. Since the death of my client; my bank and I have made several inquiries to his Embassy to locate any of his extended family members or relatives but this has proven unsuccessful. I employed the services of LinkedIn search solely for this purpose as I feel it would not have been the last wishes of my late client for his whole life work to be transferred to a government (Es cheat) he had always complained of their unfavorable public monetary policies, taxes and so on while he was alive. My bank has issued me several notices to provide the next of kin or the account risk been es cheat within the next 14 official working days. The last notice for claim came to my desk last week.

    I am contacting you to assist me in repatriating the funds left behind before they are declared unserviceable by my bank. I am seeking your consent to present you as the next of kin of my late client since you share and bear the same last name. As such, the proceeds of the account can be paid to you as soon as you contact my bank and apply for the funds to be released to you as the next of kin. If we can be of one accord, I see no reason why we would not succeed. We both have to act swiftly on this matter in other to beat the deadline es cheat date. Please get back to me immediately for us to proceed.

    I propose that upon successful completion of this deal, we will split the proceeds 40/60 ratio. I am after the success of this transaction with your full co-operation. All I require is your honesty and full co-operation to enable us see this cool deal go through. I guarantee you that this will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you and me from breaching any laws. I want to also inform you that I am a very religious person and I cannot tell a lie because of my strong beliefs; I would expect the same from you. Find attached scanned copy of my Work ID for authenticity so we have equal ground to trust each other. Please endeavor to keep my details confidential. I want you to note that it is only in total trust and partnership that we can commence and conclude the project successfully.

    I will send you more information directing you on further procedure on how we can claim the money in the account successfully. If this proposal is alright by you then kindly get back to me by only e-mail for confidential reasons. The content of this mail should be treated with utmost confidentiality and a quick response from you will be highly appreciated. I anticipate your co-operation...
