I may be being conned something about a relocation grant and sending a check for 6,700.00

Do you know anything about this?

I got two of these e-mails.
Dear Friend,

This is my second letter to you, my name is Joe Mach, I received a letter from a bank here requesting for the next of kin to my deceased client who died few years ago. Before his demise, Mr. Johansson was very close to me and introduced me formally to the bank manager, which gave vent to the said bank letter.

The Letter stated that he made fixed deposit of some amount of money before his death .The bank is aware of his death, though he was not married, neither did he leave a "WILL" nor specified next of kin. The bank is should be expecting someone with the same surname to come along for claims. As it is, no one can put up claims except someone with the same surname and referred from my office. All efforts to get his family relatives have been abortive hence my contact with you. He died at 68yrs, and requested to be buried here. Honestly, i know this may look strange because we have not met before, but the fact is that your surname is what guided my contact with you beause it is only on that credential that we can successfully lay claim on this fund. I have made arrangement to get all the necessary documents requried by the bank in your name as a bonafide next of kin to late Mr. Johansson according to required procedure.

Here in UK Unclaimed Assets Register estimates unclaimed assets in the UK financial system currently runs into billions. Around 5 billion is in dormant accounts, with around 3 billion each in pensions, National Savings and shares with accumulated dividends and 1 billion of unclaimed insurance policies. One argument runs that money in dormant accounts fattens banks' balance sheets and, other than a cursory letter to the account holder's last known address or attorney, banks have absolutely no incentive to track down the money's rightful owner’s relatives. The new bill means banks will lose the cash anyway to the 2012 London Olympics; so perhaps reuniting deceased relatives with lost cash could be seen as the banks making a choice between the lesser of two evils and looking like consumer champions at the same time. Most times, savers and investors lose track of their assets for a number of reasons. Some people invest without telling their next of kin, who has no idea what to look for when they die. In some cas

I consider it best to utilize the money for our mutual benefit and probably use part of it for charity than for it to used for the 2012 London Olympics, which i know will not appease the spirit of beloved Mr. Johansson. Hence i beleive 40% for me, 40% for you and the remaining 20% for Charity and refund of any expenses incurred by both parties. We can renegotiate the percentage if you are not comfortable with that. Be rest assured that this is a safe transaction and there won't be any breach of the law in the process.

I wait to hear from you.

Dear Beloved,

Glory to God in heaven. My name is Mrs.Annen Joubert from South Africa. I am married to Mr. Abraham Benjamin Joubert, who is a farmer here in South Africa for many years before he died in 2004. We were married for eleven years without a child. He died after a briefillness that lasted for only four days.Before his death we were both born again Christians. Since his death I decided not to re-marry or geta child outside my matrimonial home which the Bible is against. When my late husband was alive he deposited a total sum of $10. Million (Ten Million, U.S.Dollars) with bank in Europe.

Presently, this money is still under the safe keeping of the Reserve Bank Recently, my Doctor told me that I would not last for the next Two months due to my cancer problems. Though what disturbs me most ismy or better still a Christian individual that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct here in. I want a church or God fearing individual that will use this fund on, orphanages and widows propagating the word of God and give help to mankind. The Bible made usto understand that blessed is the hand that griveth.

I took this decision because I don't have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are nota good Christians and I don't want my husband'shard earned money to be misused by unbelievers. I don't want a situation where this money will be used in an ungodly manner. Hence the reason for taking this bold decision.

I am not afraid of death hence I know where I am going. I know that I am going to be in the bosom of the Lord.Exodus 14 VS 14 says that the lord will fight my case and I shall holdmy peace. I don't need any telephone communication in this regard because of my health because of the presence of my husband's relatives around me always. I don't want them to know about this development.Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated here in

With God all things are possible. As soon as I receive your reply I'll forward your personal information to the bank in Europe so that they will contact you as the legal owner of this fund before transferring the fund into your nominated Bank Account in your country. I will also issue you a letter of a authority that will empower you as the original-beneficiary of this fund. I want you and the church to always pray for me because the lord is my shepherd.i will stop here becouse of my health Hoping to hear from you as soon as possible. Read Hebrews13:15v16 New Living Translation

Remain blessed in the name of the Lord.

Mrs.Annen Joubert.

Presently, I have just been granted a funding from EMA Textiles Ltd United

orders as your commission and then send the rest back to me through Western
Union wire transfer.
These payments are in Money Orders or Checks and they would be written out to
you in your name and sent to you via courier, so all you need do is process
the payments, then deduct your percentage and wire the rest back.

10% from each operation! For instance: you receive 7000 US-D via checks or
money orders on our behalf.

You do not need any office because you will work as an independent contractor
right from your home or office. Your job is absolutely legal. You can earn up
to $3000-4000 monthly depending on time you will spend for this job. You do
not need any capital to start.
This is absolutely legal, that's why you have to fill a contract!
I would be glad if you accept my proposal and I intend to commence On starting

I have been getting e-mails like this for some time. I have been trying to figure out how they got my e-mail address. Then I figured that when, I could not sign into and lost my YAHOO account. That's is where they got all my information, I think. I know that this is one of a world wide series of scams. I am glad that there are sites like this. I hope that this site helps others before they get ripped off.

All I have to say to these people doing research in West Africa, you can stay out of my checking account you are not getting my drivers license number, my advise to you is to continue to live with your kids, your pets and the love of your life and leave people and their identities alone. I hope Scotland Yard finds you spineless, probably homeless jerks and puts you away with all the other credit stealing non working sorry stories of life.
