This scammer appears to have read my previous post (obviously, he hasn't really read it) and is offering me a little under $10m.  Yet another scammer who thinks that telling me I have money due from Benein (or Nigeria or Cote'D'Ivoire) makes his story sound believable.

When, I wonder, will a scammer write and tell me I have money due from a rich person in Monaco or Andorra?  (Let's wait and see if the scammers are reading this!)

Just ignore this scammer.  You know you aren't expecting money from Benin.  If you were, it wouldn't come by Western Union, would it?  That much money would be dealt with via your regular and legitimate solicitor and be transferred directly to your bank account.

And you will be receiving every day till you receive the total fund $9.380,000.00 United State Dollars completed. Now no need to send you this ATM card because you can not be able to withdraw with the ATM card due to the ATM master card contain large money on it and is not activated too and many people have received their fund through this western union which is the safety way and reliable with less cost.

The last scammer (see previous post) offered me $22.5m.  This one only wants to send me £750k.  Sorry, but I don't get out of bed for less than $5m these days. It's suuuuuuch a bore keeping track of all these multi-millions of dollars.  Not!

Somehow I would imagine that the "Regional Manager" of the "Bank of England" would be able to write in grammatically correct English.  It's also clear that this scammer has no knowledge of the English legal system.

You know that you aren't expecting an inheritance payment of $22.5m.  If you were, it wouldn't have gone to the Bank of England, would it?  You would receive an official letter from your solicitor.

I also find it unlikely that a high ranking Bank of England official would use a gmail email address - don't you?

Ignore this scammer whose only aim is to get his hands on your money by charging you fees.

Your Ref:..............


Definitely, I know that this letter will be a surprising one to you,
firstly, I will like to introduce myself officially as Mr. ALLAN BOBEY The
Regional Manager of Bank of England You are been officially contacted today
because your Inheritance/contract Funds was Re-deposited into the "Federal
Suspense Account" of Bank of England last week, because you did not proceed
with your Claim as the Rightful beneficiary which is well known to the board
and management team of Bank of England. Three men came to my office
yesterday in connection of your inheritance/contract fund and these men were
unexpected by me because their visit was out of official appointment. I had
to ask them why they came to see me in person and they said that they were
here to claim the Inheritance/contract sum of (US$22.5m) which rightfully
belongs to you as your inheritance/contract title on your behalf, at this
development I asked them who authorized them to come down to England for the
claim to honestly this was the biggest shock that this Bank has ever
received so far because your Inheritance/contract Funds is still in the
"Federal Suspense Account" of Bank of England, yet you sent these men to
come and claim this Funds on your behalf without any official notice to
authorize and permit this bank to do and execute your inheritance/contract
sum to the three men whom you authorized to claim your fund on your behalf.
This Bank does not understand why you sent these men to come and claim your
Funds on your behalf. If actually you want them to help you claim your
Inheritance Bill Sum, at least you should have notified my office so that we
will act accordingly. They actually tendered some Vital Documents which
proved that you actually sent them for the claim of this Fund. Honestly, it
really baffles me that you took such decision without my consent. Here are
the Document which they tendered to this Bank today.


Actually, these Documents which they tendered to this Bank are Proves that
you sent them to claim this Fund for you. Finally, I gave them an
appointment next week, in order to contact you for verification and
authorization before releasing this fund to them. As the Manager of this
Bank of England, I was supposed to Release this Funds to them but I refused
to do so because I wanted to hear from you first. Due to the Nature of my
job, I will not want to make any mistake in releasing this Fund to anyone
except you whom is the recognized beneficiary to this Fund.
Kindly clarify us on this issue before we make this Payment to these
foreigners who came on your behalf. In receipt of this confidential Letter,
you are required to get back to me immediately to enable us proceed with the
payment or cancel the payment in their favor and wait for your next

Best Regards,

Another scammer who thinks that telling me he comes from Nigeria and has millions of dollars in a "silver trunk box" ready for me is going to make me believe him.  It doesn't.  I'm not expecting millions of dollars from Nigeria, or anywhere else.  Neither are you.

If you make the mistake of replying this scammer will start asking you to send him money.

(He might have a wee spot of bother landing at my "closest airport".  I live in a rural area and it's a landing strip in a field.)
