Well, it looks like it's not just you folks in the US that are being fooled by us evil british folk. I recieved an email this morning on the same lines as all you guys did but from a company called LANTAX FABRIC INDUSTRIAL LTD that are based in the US.I decided to check on the net to see if the company exists and what a surprise,nothing..NOT A SAUSAGE!
Nothing on either of the guys names that are on there
or the company. I've always been wary of people that ask to cash a cheque for them unless they are family.
Guess they realised that you guys were onto them & decided to try it else where.
The email i received is so very similar all they've done is changed the names. in certain places they even forgot to change the dollar sign!
DOWN WITH THE EVIL SCAMERS i say

I received this email.... Thank you for identifying it as a scam. I had a friend who was scammed and the banks claim they are not responsible once they transfer your funds, even if they do so because your account has received the defrauding party's "check," and "deposited" it in your account.

MRS. MARIA M. SOCORRO
CREDIT ACCOUNTS OFFICER
HEAD OFFICE EQUITABLE PCI BANK TWR.
MKT AVENUE. COR.H.V DELA COSTA STR
PHILIPPINES.

Good day,
Let me start by introducing myself, I am MRS. MARIA M. SOCORRO,CREDIT ACCOUNTS OFFICER EQUITABLE PCI BANK. I am writing you this letter based on the latest development at my bank, which I will like to bring to your personal edification. I am writing you this letter with so much joy and excitement even though my heart goes out to the very powerful and distinguished gentleman who I was fortunate to have worked for and extremely privileged to have known for numerous years.I am a top official in charge of client accounts in EQUITABLE PCI BANK inside the Philippines.

In 2001, my client was going through a horrendous divorce in the United States Of America and was on the verge of losing most of his estate to his vicious and diabolical wife. As a result of this alarming predicament, my client came to me with a very brilliant idea. He transferred some funds,ten million two hundred thousand dollars($10.2m) to a fixed deposit account in my bank under an alias which only the two of us knew about as the confidentiality of the matter was necessary for his protection. Due to his ntimely death in early 2002, the funds have been sitting in the account ever since and will continue to do so perpetually unless we do something about it.This is where you come in. I located you through an agency that helps seek people by their email. My client did not declare any next of kin in his official papers including the paper work of his bank deposit.

Against this backdrop, my suggestion to you is that I would like you as a foreigner to stand as the next of kin to our client so that you will be able to receive his funds. I want you to know that I have had everything planned out so that we can come out successful. I have contacted an attorney that will prepare the necessary document that will back you up as the next of kin to my client. All that is required from you at this stage is for you to provide me with your Full Names and Address so that the attorney can commence his job. After you have been made the next of kin, the attorney will also file in for claims on your behalf and secure the necessary approval and letter of probate in your favor for the move of the funds to an account that will be provided by you. There is no risk involved at all in the matter as we are going adopt a legalized method and the attorney will prepare all the necessary documents.

Again, I will be in charge of everything else. I will assume all responsibilities for this endeavor so you don't have to worry about any legal ramifications, just what you will do with all that money. Your urgent response is highly anticipated so please email me for more details on this transaction as soon as possible. This should be kept very secret and confidential I believe you know. If interested please reply to this email address: mrs_socorro@excite.com


kind Regards,
MRS. MARIA M. SOCORRO

Lucy Lou: I don't know if you've gotten your answer yet BUT you need to send that payment back to the person who sent it to you. It's NO good. You'll lose money and the item that were selling.
