FROM THE DESK OF MR. Mc.K.SMITH Email Scam

Here you will find yet another of the gazillion spam messages that finds its way into your inbox. Just another scam for your reading enjoyment. 3/28/08. Message left as is. Apparently this scammer doesn't know to much about proper paragraphs.




FROM THE DESK OF : MR. Mc.K.SMITH

Dear Recipient,
How are you today, and business in your country? I am Mc.k.Smith, Bank Manager of bank of Overseas South Africa. I would respectfully request that you keep the contents of this mail confidential and respect the integrity of the information you come by as a result of this mail.
I contacted you independently of our investigation and no one is informed of this communication. I would like to intimate you with certain facts that I believe would be of interest to you and i will urge you to read on.
An Indian Oil consultant/contractor with the South African Solid Minerals Corporation, Mr. Kumar .D. Rajeev made a numbered time (Fixed) Deposit of $30,000,000.00 for twelve calendar months and not too long Mr. kumar.D. Rajeev died from an airplane crash. The bank immediately launched an investigation into possible surviving next of kin to alert about the situation and also to come forward to claim his estate.
If you are familiar with private banking affairs, those who patronize our services usually prefer anonymity, but also some levels of detachment from conventional processes. In his bio-data form, he listed no next of kin.

In the field of private banking, opening an account with us means no one will know of its existence, accounts are rarely held under a name; depositors use numbers and codes to make the accounts anonymous. This bank also gives the choice to depositors of having their mail sent to them or held at the bank itself, ensuring that there are no traces of the account and as I said, rarely do they nominate next of kin.
Private banking clients apart from not nominating next of kin also usually in most cases leave wills in our care, in this case; Mr. Kumar.D. Rajeev died interstate.

In line with our internal processes for account holders who have passed away, we instituted our own investigations in good faith to determine who should have right to claim the estate. This investigation has for the past months been unfruitful. We have scanned every continent and used our private investigation affiliate companies to get to the root of the problem.
According to the Laws of South African Government, at the expiration of 6(Six) years, the money will revert to the ownership of the Government if nobody applies to claim the funds.
What I wish to relate to you will smack of unethical practice but I want you to understand something. It is only an outsider to the banking world who finds the internal politics of the banking world aberrational. The world of banking especially is fraught with huge rewards for those who occupy certain offices and oversee certain portfolios,I alone have the deposit details and they will release the deposit to no one unless evidence of relationship with the deceased, which I shall provide you with, is presented. I alone know of the existence of this deposit as far as Bank of South African is concerned, the bank's management has no single idea of what? the history or nature of the deposit. They are simply awaiting instructions to release the deposit to any party that comes forward.
I am aware of the consequences of this proposal. If my offer is of no appeal to you, delete this message and forget I ever contacted you. If you give me positive signals, I will initiate this process towards a conclusion.
I wish to inform you that should you contact me via official channels; I will deny knowing you and about this project. I repeat, I do not want you contacting me through my official phone lines nor do I want you contacting me through my official email account.
I will always call you and please contact me only through this email below. My official lines are not secure lines as they are periodically monitored to assess our level of customer care in line with our Total Quality Management Policy. Please observe this instruction religiously. Please, again, note I am a family man, I have a wife and children. I send you this mail not without a measure of fear as to what the consequences may be, but I know within me that nothing ventured is nothing gained and that success and riches never come easy or on a platter of gold. This is the one truth I have learned from my private banking clients. Do not betray my confidence.
If we can be of one accord, we should plan a meeting, soon. In closing, please observe utmost confidentiality, and be rest assured that this transaction would be most profitable for both of us because I shall require your assistance to invest my share in your country. Upon receiving your reply, I will then furnish you with a more comprehensive detail of this transaction and what is required of you.
Please reply to my private Email:(removed so scammer don't get no replies) Awaiting your urgent reply.
Yours Sincerely,
Mr. Mc.k.Smith
