I Get E-Mail!

This is probably the worstly-written spam I have ever received, considering it is purportedly from the Bank Of Scotland, where one assumes they all speak and write SOME form of the English language. Do not these folks have spell -czech on there machines?

But, it IS shocking to think that poor James Wood, Regional Manager low these 15 years, has NOTHING to show for all his hard work.

It is indeed sad that he must resort to this scam. I am disheartened.

The Manager,
Bank of Scotland Limited,
HBOS Treasury Services,
33,Old Broad Street,
London EC2N 1HZ. Greetings From JAMES WOOD
This letter is not intended to cause any form of embarrasments, but ratherintended to contact your highly esteemed self. I am writing to seek
your consent in a private and confidential matter regarding some funds unaccounted for in our bank here in London during the last 2006
business year.I need assistance from a trustworthy and reliable Foreigner whom I will fillin as the beneficiary. Your major role would be to provide either an existing bank account or to set up a new Bank account immediately to receive this money and get 30% of the total funds as commission. There are practically no risks involved, thetransaction will be executed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect us from any breach of the law, it will be simply a bank-to-bank transfer, and all I need from you is to stand claim as the eneficiary (next of kin)so that my head office can order the transfer to your designated bankaccount under few working days.

I am JAMES WOOD, the regional manager of Bank Of Scotland Limited, and I write you this proposal in good faith; I am married with five lovely kids. It is my duty as the regional manager to send in financial report to my head office in the capital city at the end of each business year. On the course of the last year 2006 business report, I discovered the sum of Twentysix million eight hundred and fifty thousand pounds sterlings 26,850,000.00. Thefund is of clean origin. The owner of this account is a foreigner, a program leader.Untill his death. The Late Prime Minister, Mr. Rafik Hariri. I willprovide all necessary information needed in order to claim this money.

Hoppingin God that you will never let me down now and in future. ok! Rafik Bahaa EdineHariri (November 1,1944 - February 14, 2005), was a Lebanese self-made billionaire and business tycoon,and was five times Prime Minister of Lebanon(1992-1998 and 2000-2004) before his last resignation from office on October 20, 2004. The late Rafik Hariri died on February 14, 2005 when explosives equivalent to around 300 kg of C4 were detonated as his motorcade drove past theSaint George Hotel in the Lebanese capital. Our head office is not aware of Funds and will never be aware of it. I have placed this funds on what we call escrow call account with no beneficiary and as an officer of this bank I cannot be directly connected to this money, hence i contacted you. If you accept to work with me I will appreciate it very much as you are the first and the only person I am contacting for this particular transaction. We will start the first transfer with sixteen million
pounds, upon successful transfer without any disappointment from your side, we shall re-apply for the payment of the remaining amount to your account. A this juncture i wish to tell you what prompted me to package this deal.

I have a 9-year old daughter who has leukemia, disease of the blood, and she needs a bone marrow transplant or she will die. I want this transplanting to be done in any good children hospital in your country if there is one. Once this fund is transferred into your account, I shall resign from my job and bring my family to start a new life in your country. I would begrateful if you would help me in looking out for good investment oppurtunities with my own part of the money in a very profitable business. I have worked for this bank for the past 15 years yet I have nothing to show for it, I really need your assistance to secure this fund as soon as possible. as soon as you receive this message if you think we can work together, so that we can go over the details. Send also your Private mobile phone and fax nos: for more proper elaborrations.PLEASE GET BACK TO ME WITH MY PRIVATE EMAIL FOR EASY CONTACT(
Truly yours,


Does poor James Wood know that he will have to PAY for that bone marrow treatment, as we do not have socialized medicine in this country?

Well, here's "hoppingin God" that he finds a way to deal with his daughter's health problem, as I can be of NO assistance to him!
