DEAR FRIEND,

INDUSTRIALIST WITH ACCOUNT NUMBER ATS1022002-109 WHO PERISHED WITH HIS

NOVEMBER 2001.

SINCE THE DEMISE OF MR DANIEL,I PERSONALLY HAVE WATCHED WITH KEEN
INTEREST TO SEE THE NEXT OF KIN BUT ALL HAS PROVED ABORTIVE AS NO ONE
HAS COME TO CLAIM HIS FUNDS OF USD$6,230,000 (SIX MILLION,TWO HUNDRED
AND THIRTY THOUSAND UNITED STATES DOLLARS)HAS BEEN WITH OUR BANK HERE
FOR A VERY LONG TIME, WHICH HAS ACCUMULATED SOME INTEREST.

ON THIS NOTE I DECIDED TO SEEK FOR YOU, YOUR NAME SHALL BE USED AS THE
NEXT OF KIN,AS NO ONE HAS COME UP TO PUT A CLAIM AS HIS NEXT OF KIN TO
THIS FUNDS AND THE BANKING ETHICS HERE DOES NOT ALLOW SUCH MONEY TO
STAY MORE THAN FIVE YEARS,BECUASE AFTER FIVE YEARS THE MONEY WILL BE
CALLED BACK TO THE BANK TREASURY AS UNCLAIMED BILL.

I AM CONVINCED IN MY MIND THAT YOUR NAME COULD BE USED AS THE NEXT OF
KIN TO THIS CLAIM.THE REQUEST OF THE FOREIGNER AS A NEXT OF KIN IN THIS
BUSINESS IS OCCASIONED BY THE FACT THAT THE CUSTOMER WAS A FOREIGNER
AND A NIGERIAN CANNOT STAND AS THE NEXT OF KIN TO A FOREIGNER .THE
MANAGEMENT OF THE BANK WILL BE WILLING TO APPROVE THIS PAYMENT TO ANY
FOREIGNER WHO HAS THE CORRECT INFORMATION OF THIS ACCOUNT WHICH I GAVE
TO YOU.

I HAVE AGREED TO SHARE THIS MONEY WITH YOU IN THE MUTUAL UNDERSTANDING
OF 60% TO ME AND 35%(about $1.5million US Dollars) TO YOU .5% WILL BE
FOR EXPENSES BOTH PARTIES MAY INCURE DURING THE PROCESS OF TRANSFERRING
THIS MONEY,THEREAFTER I WILL COME TO YOUR COUNTRY, FOR
DISBURSEMENT/SHARING THIS MONEY AS I AM ALMOST DUE FOR RETIREMENT AND
WISH TO GOING INTO ACTIVE BUSINESS IN YOUR COUNTRY.

THEREFORE TO ENDEAVOUR THE IMMEDIATE TRANSFER OF THIS FUNDS TO YOUR
ACCOUNT,YOU HAVE TO APPLY FIRST TO THE BANK AS THE NEXT OF KIN TO THE
DESEASED INDICATING BY SENDING A LETTER OF CLAIM TO THE BANK .

I WILL NOT FAIL TO BRING TO YOUR NOTICE THAT THIS BUSINESS IS HITCH
FREE AND THAT YOU SHOULD NOT ENTERTAIN ANY FEAR AS THE WHOLE REQUIRED
ARRANGEMENT AS BEEN PERFECTED FOR THE TRANSFER.

IS THIS A HOAX?


2006-09-05 10:13:20 -
I received a letter from Switerland Lottery requesting to cash an enclosed check at my bank. I called to confirm it is a valid check, which it was. I was told that after the check is cleared I would forward the money to MoneyGram, which would pay for the taxes and be deducted from my winning. It would then later generate the lottery winnings to be mailed to me.

I am trying to figure out how will this scam affect me financially. I am looking at all sides and still do not understand it.

The contact company is Sierra Financial Management Group, subsicidiary of Switerland Trust Corporation.

Can I get a clear understanding from someone???

I have recieved a postal letter today from Haplin Data Services that I have won a grand slam. They are asking me to send Rs.500 cash in an enclosed cash envelop to Research Department, P.O. Box 1313 , Runaway QLD 4216, Australia.

I am not sure whether this is a scam or not but I am sure that I have not participated in any kind of lottery or any other programme.

I am aware that I cannot win any kind of prize utill I play and that is the only reason I believe that this could be a scam.

Please see if we can check and make the other people aware so that they can restrain themselves falling in the net of cheaters.

I have recieved a mail earlier from UK lottery that I have won 5 million pounds but when I checked I found that several others are defrauded by the same people.

I just got my third SCAM letter in 3 months. The first one had a check for more money then I was to send back to them for processing. The check looked real, so I went to my bank and they made some calls and found that the account was real but they had gotten some fraud checks on that account. I left the check and WINNING LETTER with them and forgot about it. Next month I got another letter (no check) and I threw it away. Now I got one from Atlantic West Gaming in Canada (of course)and I called the number for him to send me "a check" to pay for the processing fee. I'm to deposit it (of course) and when it clears to send them the "processing fee"..I did this to turn all the stuff over to the FBI and the Post Office. This is mail fraud, and bank fraud.
I didn't play any sweepstakes except Publishers Clearing House..SO HOW COULD I HAVE ONE??? DUH!
I use a pager number when I fill out forms on the internet and that was the number they had...guess where these guys are getting our names???
REMEMBER IF YOU WIN SOMETHING IT DOESN'T REQUIRE YOU TO SEND THEM MONEY TO GET YOUR WINNINGS...AND IF YOU DON'T PLAY INTERNATIONAL LOTTO, OR SPANISH LOTTO, OR ENGLISH LOTTO YOU CAN'T WIN...BESIDES IT'S ILLEGAL TO DO IT!!!!!!!!!
